overnight. several have been arrested. tied to the truck terror that murdered 84 people. we're live with the very latest from france. >> then donald trump ends the suspense and says indiana's governor is his pick for vp. >> donald trump understands the anxiety and the aspiration of the american people like no leader sense reagan. and he has given voice to that. >> what pence do for the trump ticket? "fox & friends" starts right now. and good saturday morning, everyone. a fox news alert. we start with chaos in turkey an attempted military coup results in a night of explosions and gunfire. leaving dozens dead more than a thousand injured. [gunfire]
the turkish government insisting it's still in control this morning. the world is on edge as turkey is one of our critical allies. >> senior fellow at the london center for research lieutenant colonel tony shaffer joins us this morning to unravel what is going on. great to see you. what should we make of this. >> well, look, this is adding layers of complexity to an already complex situation. i talked to my pentagon sources overnight. our facilities there are safe. our personnel are safe. with that said, situation is far but predictable and precise regarding the fact that we are attempting right now, as you know, to go about a major offensive against isis. turkey has been one of those allies being a nato ally that we have been counting on. and erdogan has been playing both sides dependence the middle. this only makes our job of trying to fight isis far more complex. >> lieutenant colonel tony shaffer you say that the facilities are intact. what does this do for our relationship with turkey? does it change things?
>> tbd. erdogan has not been the best ally in this. he kept the back door open for a isis for a long time. i don't think it's completely closed. he allowed for isis to resupply, reman itself. and they have not allowed to use our military facilities there against isis. it's been a bit of a turn around. erdogan has been playing all sides against the middle. moving the country towards a more is islamic centric governance much like president morsey in egypt was attempting to do before he was thrown out. this may be a response to that sort of trend that was going. other thing, erdogan reached out to putin recently trying to make nice with him. plus he has made an agreement with the israelis. he literally is kind of all over the map right now. i'm not sure that we can actually predict what's going to come out of all of this chaos. >> there was a number of sources over the past many months that predicted this. it was all out there. how are people left so flat
footed? >> we know this administration tends to manage national security through a policy of wishful thinking. john brennan is not doing miss job. i talked to jim woolsey about this recently former director of cia. they are not focused on what they should be. things like this get under the radar because we are not looking. the other thing we have to understand here is president obama and company are very much for prime minister erdogan's trend towards allowing him to basically consolidate more power. and that's what's going on here. that's what will come out of this. if erdogan survives which looks like he will. he will become more draconian in his approach to consolidation of power. dare i say this may be the beginning of the end for the turkish democracy. >> so the administration was caught unaware. they had no idea this was happening. but their first instinct was to support erdogan as you noted their second was to support morsey over mubarak. is it fair to say their
instinct is to support the islamic autocrat over the secular leader. >> that's been the trend. trended toward despots every time you turn around. i hate to be so bluntly there are clear issues here. we damaged our relationship with egypt by supporting morsey over al see elsie is i being the current president. basically preserve that democracy. i think that's what happened here in turkey with that said, i think erdogan will use this to consolidate his power and double down and triple down in going about trying to eliminate any opposition. >> you are absolutely right. he has locked up reporters for speaking out. knocked off the top part of the military brass and last night very forceful marriage about the cleric living in the poconos running things. explain that side of the story which is crazy. >> well, this cleric in
pennsylvania has been, according to the prime minister to erdogan, the bane of his existence, this guy, according to erdogan has been the shadow guy organizing a parallel construct to use the term that the turkish have been using in the media if you believe this he is the boogie man. this individual in pennsylvania was initially an ally of erdogan. they had basically a separation of ways. but the premise is that, you know, this guy was able to orchestrate this large revolution from the united states. and i think you are probably going to see erdogan call for his arrest and return to turkey based on everything i have heard at this point. >> wow, lieutenant colonel tony shaffer thanks for being with us this morning. >> thanks. >> 6 minutes after the hour. john huddy live on the ground there in istanbul. you were there in the aftermath of that awful terror attack that happened in the airport.
how much unrest is going on in turkey right now that you can sense and feel for yourself? >> well, it was definitely an uneasy feeling, just to give you an idea, anna, clayton, and tucker, when we arrived at the airport on the asian side of istanbul. they were not allowing any vehicles in or out. we had to lug all our gear off the airport premises, pass tanks and semi-trucks that were blocking the entrance to the airport to try to get a cab. i mean, it was just absolutely [inaudible] very chaotic and certainly a lot of tension in the wake of what happened overnight as you guys were just talking about and as we have been seeing the video. the clashes, the fighting, including, i believe, and we have video and the sound of an attack or at least an explosion in the country's parliament building overnight again in ankara. listen to this.
and that was among all of the other clashes that happened not only in ankara and that's where some of the heaviest fighting was, horton, gun ships firing at protesters on the ground. in fact, a friend of mine owns a restaurant in ankara and he sent me video and pictures while it was happening. he and his family hunkered down in their home. there was tens of thousands of protesters that hit the streets here in istanbul in taksim square also fired upon by military gun ships. these were pockets of military and police forces that staged this attempted coup. this morning erdogan arrived at the airport saying the coup was failed. the government was back in control. we know that at least 161
people were killed during the overnight fighting. more than 1400 others wounded. more than 2800 military and police personnel taken into custody. whether it ends now or not we will see. but i can tell you this, it is certainly a contrast between last night and now overlooking -- beautiful day. for now things have calmed down. back to you. >> john huddy live for us in istanbul, turkey thanks, john. >> isis claiming responsibility for the vicious attack in nice, france that killed 84 innocent people. calling the truck driver a soldier of terror. >> this as five people have been arrested so far in connection with that deadly rampage. >> amy kellogg is live in nice with all the breaking details. good morning. what you can tell us, amy? >> hi, anna. i can tell you that three days of mourning in france kick off today. i'm standing on the promenade just about 200 yards from where that truck finally came to a halt
after the driver was shot dead by police but only after he killed 84 innocent people who were celebrating bastille day. this isis claim of responsibility is interesting because people were wondering who this driver was. but, the wording of this statement, which was put out by the agency which typically carries isis communications that he was a soldier of isis. they don't even name him. which leads some people to ponder whether it's isis claiming responsibility for him or him having claimed his allegiance at some point to isis. that, we still don't know. police have released very little information about mohammed -- apparently not a religious man. never shown any signs of radicalization. didn't go to the mosque. didn't observe ramadan. according to neighbors was a drinker. had been watched for
domestic violence. had been divorced from his wife and had three little kids. never got on to the radar screen of intelligence services for terrorism related issues. he had a petty criminal record. in the meantime, this raid in nice netted the detention of three people, members of his so-called entourage. yesterday, another friend was picked up and his ex-wife is being held. these people are just being held for interrogation as police try to find out what sort of associations he had. now, memorials are springing up spontaneously all along the promenade and other parts of the city. we keep hearing more eyewitness accounts which are incredibly gripping. we hear people talking about their guilt having nearly escaped death and running for their own levees and now having survivors' guilt. they don't understand how
this man who had throw children of his own could possibly have run over so many little kids. and apparently, anna, clayton, and tucker, he targeted candy stands. he really did want to go after little children. the state of emergency is extended here now for an indefinite period of time and there is a lot of popular anger when you talk about why this strip which had 30,000 revelers on it on thursday night wasn't better protected with some sort of ring of steel. back to you. >> amy kellogg, thanks, amy. >> thanks, amy. >> again to politics and big storm of the day all eyes on donald trump. his v.p. pick is indiana governor mike pence. what can we expect from him today as he gets introduced. our own john roberts is live on that coming up next. you show up. you stay up. you listen. you laugh. you worry.

good morning, everyone. donald trump will officially announce his running mate this morning mike pence at the midtown hotel in manhattan. >> clayton, anna, and tucker good morning to you. first time a running mate has ever been announced via twitter after donald trump had to cancel the event yesterday. governor mike pence during the indiana primary famously endorsed ted cruz was seen as a very lukewarm endorsement. judging by his appearance with sean hannity last night he is fully on board the trump train. here is pence from last night. >> well, first off, he is the people's choice. and i believe in the collective wisdom of the american people. donald trump understands the anxiety and the aspiration of the american people like no leader since reagan. and he has given voice to
that and people have rallied around him. and i believe will continue to rally around him. >> while he has changed his donald trump himself. he also is demonstrating a new mallability on some of the issues. he was a staunch supporter of the transpacific partnership. he told hannity is he willing to renegotiate trade deals. he sent out a tweet calling donald trump's proposed ban on muslims offensive and unconstitutional. now seems to have a different mind on that as well. listen. >> our hearts go out to the families of the fallen in the latest horrific terrorist attack. >> it's awful, isn't it? >> in france. and i am very supportive of donald trump's call to temporarily suspend immigration from countries where it were terrorists influence and impact represents a threat to the united states. >> you know, mike pence is the choice of mike pence at least gives him a lot of
confer on the right. he is in good standing with many, many conservatives. they're not all conservatives with him. judging by how the hillary clinton clinton campaign is treating him. conservatives should take heart in that. hillary clinton pointed out if you had any doubts about trump sticking with any plans for america take a look at his vp pick defund planned parenthood. restrictions on abortion. opposition slashed tax cuts. he did cause system con turn nation con stern nation among conservatives on turn back from that outcry. back to you. >> tucker, over to you. so who is governor mike pence and what does he bring to the ticket? our next guest says it's a perfect pairing. tony katz is a radio talk show host in indianapolis. he joins us now.
tony, great to see you this morning. >> great to see. >> you you think of pence, former radio guy like you, very are a articulate. i think of him as the evangelical wing of the g.o.p. >> he was radio guy where i host a show right now. he is clearly a christian. clearly faith moves a lot of him. that's why you see him always on the side of life. that isn't going to change. that's why you saw him on the side of religious liberty. even if you were disagreeing with him on rifra or not. that's where he is always going to be. i don't see any of that changing regardless of what donald trump says or does. >> he is a less flamboyant pick than some of the people that had been mentioned is that good or bad. >> he is what? >> less flamboyant. he is more restrained. more sort. >> less flamboyant than donald trump. elton john is less flamboyant than donald trump. there is a whole level of
gradations in there. yeah, but the purpose of pence as i see it and as many people see it is this rust belt strategy, wisconsin, michigan, ohio and indiana. take those four states and 55 electoral votes. in wisconsin cruz destroyed donald trump there. in michigan trump wins with 37% in the primary but kasich and cruz take 49% of the vote half of michiganders didn't want him. he does a lot of work in those two states to bring a lot of conservatives back and say you have got to give it a shot. trust me on this one. is he going to be a big help in ohio. it went to kasich buy pence is going to play there, our neighbor to the east. tony katz, that's a great analysis. appreciate that this morning good to see you. >> great to see you. >> thanks. >> a military coup crumbles. 300 people are now dead in turkey this as isis claims responsibility for the deadly truck attack in nice, france. chaos around the world and how it is effecting the war
on terror as the road where the attack occurred is about to reopen. we have got the latest. stay tuned. and cash back for driving safe. and the power to automatically find your car... i see you car! and i got the power to know who's coming and when if i break down. ...you must be gerry. hey... in means getting more from your car insurance with the all-powerful drivewise app. it's good to be in, good hands.

jim, good to see you this morning. >> pleasure. >> so, should americans take heart in the fact that president erdogan appears to be back in control of turkey? is that good or bad? >> i don't think it's particularly good. president obama has been backing him for a long time. i thought one of the more interesting things this is obama calling for the democratically elected government of turkey. anyone watching knew it was anything but democratic. they threw journalists and opposition in jail. it was largely corrupt. so erdogan has been consolidating power. he is a bad guy. is he an islamist. and unsurprisingly, he is obama's ally. so i don't think it was good. it would have been nice if the military performed its natural role as a break on the islamic breaks in tendencies but that doesn't seem the case. president speaking out yesterday. i want to get your take on
what the president said how we are going to win this thing. >> contrasts to these terrorists who only know how to kill and destroy, we're going to win this fight by building. by never giving up on diplomacy. >> we're going to win it appeared never giving up on diplomacy. how is that going to happen? >> i don't know. i haven't met the isis ambassador or the boko haram -- not appropriate for obama no be talking about fighting terror. isis claiming responsibility in nice happens because president obama has let them fester in iraq and syria. he created the vacuum by cutting and running from iraq when we should have stayed to mid wife that democracy and he has failed miserably in any attempt to prosecute a war, to cut down the black flag, to end the caliphate and to stop that as a recruiting magnet and a pride and joy of the islamist and jihadist world.
>> jim, politically, do you think it's effective for hillary clinton to wrap her arms around president obama and his foreign policy and then on the other side of things, how do you think donald trump and governor pence should respond? anna, hillary doesn't have much choice she was there and helped him implement this debacle of foreign policy that now leaves most of the world in flames. she is going to have to try to find a way to claim some sort of victory there add mist a pile of defeat. the add be vantage that donald trump and mike pence have they didn't create this mess and they can look at it and say the failed policies of the past 8 years would be continued by a hillary clinton presidency and donald trump and governor pence present a direct alternative to that so, they are definitely an advantage and have at least a chance to make a change for the better.
>> incisive. thanks a lot. jim hanson good to see you this morning. >> food to be with you. >> isis terror attack in france now former house speaker newt gingrich say those who support sharia law should be deported. >> test every person here of a muslim background and if they believe in sharia they should be deported. >> actually some muslims agree with newt. you are going to hear from one straight ahead. >> with you donald trump said to roll out mike pence as his running mate in just a few hours. is he the perfect conservative complement to the g.o.p.'s ticket? our political panel will discuss coming up next. hi, i'm dominique wilkins.

a fox news alert now. turmoil in turkey helicopters firing on protesters in turkey after an attempted military coup results in hundreds of deaths and thousands of rogue soldiers detained. tanks rolling through the streets of istanbul and the capital city of an carla. blocking major streets and bridges. despite a bomb rocking a parliament building. they are in the middle of a session. the government claims still in control. calling a defeated terrorist uprising. and then moments ago a turkish official sharing this photo said to be taken inside the prime minister's trashed apartment. inside that parliament building. >> meanwhile also falling,
this isis is now claiming responsibility for the vicious attack in nice, france. calling the terrorists a soldier of the group. a security source with the terror organization says mohammed was carrying out an order for followers to target nationals of countries fighting isis. the terror network didn't call the terrorist by name and relationship to the group isn't clear. the breaking details come as five people are arrested in connection with the deadly attack. the terrorist's ex-wife is one of those who has been detained. we will continual to follow this but right now, tucker, over with you with the political panel. >> thanks, anna. the question is which candidate would handle the chaos overseas most effectively. joining us now to discuss it our terrific political panel analyst and president of scott rasmussen reporter for real clear politics caitlin huey burns and mayor philip lavigne. nice to see you all. mr. mayor, first to you,
since you are closest, clearly hillary clinton has more experience with foreign policy than donald trump. but he has a clearer vision. he is just not for islamist leaders and she along with the president and secretary of state are backing erdogan who is a self-described islamist. what matters? experience or vision? >> most important, tucker, is the fact that we need to stand with france. an attack against france is an attack against our country as well. secretary clinton's position which is very, very clear is we are one with france. secondly, i has been, secretary clinton. >> that doesn't mean anything we are one with france? you make your are facebook page red, white, and blue like who cares? >> this is not over there boy. over there, boy. this is a radical movement. this is not a nation against a nation. donald trump doesn't understand that. >> what kind of radical. [ laughter ] >> tucker, et one thing we do know donald trump will send out unbelievable twitter against isis that's one thing we can count on. secretary clinton will be
there unifying our allies in one front against this movement. this is a cancer. we need to control it and we need -- >> -- this mysterious radical movement whose nature is unclear. just radical. so, caitlin, if you take three steps back, the world is actually in worse shape. i'm not saying that as a partisan talking point it's just true as it was 8 years ago. hillary clinton presided over the first four of obama foreign policy. not a great record, is it? >> sure. that's the point that trump is going to make. and if he gets his campaign together, we will continue to make that over the next few months. it's interesting though when you look at polling you see that voters overwhelmingly think that trump is better handling of national security and foreign policy issues. but, that isn't catching up in these polls, right? we have had several instances of this now, and trump is not leading in the polls yet he is getting bad scores how he has handled these things. total contrast in vision and approach that we are seeing in these campaigns depends
how voters are feeling in a couple of months, if perhaps, there are any more attacks. >> response is muddied. i agree with that. scott, you have got to wonder about the idea that we were sold on 8 years ago. the rest of the world loves obama. they will like us more as a result and the world to be more peaceful long term because of that. that has not worked out that way. >> first of all, that's a very american century or dc centric view of the world if you elect the right person we will all live happily ever after. that's not true with barack obama. or george w. bush. who wins in november. i think what we are seeing though is the way you described it who is better able to handle a situation like, this voters are saying we're not confident with either one. sure, hillary clinton has this experience, but we're not sure that her instincts are good. we like a lot of donald trump's instincts but we are not sure he can execute and that creates a scary situation. that unsettled nature is
part of reason we are having such a volatile political season. >> mr. mayor, give me the talking points on governor pence. some are saying is he milk toast. democrats are saying is he dangerous. flat out scary. how scary? >> what's amazing he is scary to the people of the indiana he wasn't going to get reelected. donald trump sent this man a lifeline, thank god. one thing we can count on with governor pence is he will fight against the lbgt community. go against them. >> gay hater? >> we know he will be able to forget about isis is he going after the lbgt community and going after them hard. 13 years in congress you know how many laws he passed? none. >> not effective warrior. >> effective for donald trump. >> dangerous but ineffective. you can rest easy out there. >> we know he is a tea party founder. is he right for donald trump and he reassures us that he and donald are one and the same. >> interesting. a little preview of what's
to come. here he is pence distroying how he was once a democrat. >> ronald reagan is the reason i became a republican. i started out as a democrat. john f. kennedy was a here hero of my youth. as i came up i start to do hear ronald reagan's capacity to articulate american ideals and i was drawn in to the republican party. i think the american people are rallying around donald trump. they are rallying around his strength, his authenticity. his common sense conservatism. we want to see america strong at home and abroad once again. >> is he a reaganite. do he and trump agree? >> pence is supposed to help trump hurdle. trump is spawive of things like tpp. he helped expand medicaid in his home state. those are things that he could go after and get on
the -- people could athaj on. also, he took heat from some conservatives on his handling of the religious freedom bill and so some say that his, you know, backbone isn't as strong as some portray it to be. i do think that his relationships in congress, the credentials that he brings to this ticket are helpful. and we will see today how trumpresents this. remember, yesterday he sent out a tweet. he postponed the announcement. the rollout of this whole thing has been pretty muchy botchy. we will see how they present themselves today. >> botchy. quickly, trump is a nationalist and outline is still becoming clear i'm wondering do you think is he still on the same page as pence. >> of course not. john kennedy and linden johnson. vice presidents are often picked for reasons. maybe mike pence helps in the mid west which is an important area for donald trump. he probably assures some of the never trumpers in congress that maybe donald
isn't quite as crazy as they imagined. but at the end of the day, donald trump is a larger than life figure. mike pence is not going to swing this campaign. you are the only personality that could compete with donald trump on the ticket real his stickily not going to happen. >> no, it's about trump. great to see you all. thank you very much. well, isis claims responsibility for the terror attack in france. former speaker newt gingrich says muslims who believe in sharia law ought to be deported from this country. >> we should, frankly, test every person from here who is of a muslim background and if they believe in sharia, they should be key ported. >> entire newsroom of the "new york times" being treated for heart failure. some muslims seem to agree with gingrich. is he right? that debate coming up next. plus, protests and partying expect to do cause chaos in cleveland. are the police prepared for it all. talk to the chairman of public safety committee just ahead. stay tuned for that.

good morning, everyone. live pictures out of nice, france right now. moments from now where a road where a terrorist mowed down civilians will reopen. >> our amy kellogg is live in nice with the breaking details. good morning, amy. >> good morning, anna, tucker, and chait. yes, isis has claimed responsibility for the attack saying that the attacker was a soldier of isis responding to its constant calls for people to attack citizens of countries who are part of the coalition, which has been carrying out air strikes against iraq and syria. isis held iraq and syria. but it's interesting that they, in their statement, do
not name mohammed -- in any way. there has been whether he this individual or whether he at some point swore his allegiance to them. investigators are five of his associates ex-wife and four people described as part of his entourage whose names surfaced on his cell phone. they will be trying to find out if, in fact, he had anything to do with the radical organization but so far no links have been proven interview with his father leads to us understanding that he used to go into violent fits andveryt that's the latest about this character. now back to you guys in new york. >> amy kellogg in nice, france. great to see you. >> amy over to you. >> in the wake of deadly attack in nice. former house speaker newt gingrich said enough is enough. >> western civilization is in a war we should frankly test every person from here who is of a muslim back
ground and if they believe in sharia they should be deported. sharia is incot -- incompatible with western civilization. he went on to clarify later the next day. he didn't mean u.s. citizens he meant foreign born muslims. does he have a point? here to debate is part of the muslim coalition and the president of the council for muslims facing tomorrow. and author of the book "their jihad not my jihad." can you be a muslim and not believe in sharia law? >> no. sharia governors all aspects of muslim life. it includes the way we pray, fast, how we trade, do business, marriage, inheritance. a lot of things that govern every day islamic life are defined by islamic sharia which is derived from the quran and the suna prophet
mohammed peace be upon him. when you say you have to distinguish yourself from sharia i know what he was trying to get at is sharia radical views. he has to understand the concept of sharia is a way of life and protection of life is very important within sharia law. >> so there is no gray area here. it's the way of life. >> well, i don't quite agree with what she is speaking about is personal. sharia what mr. gingrich wants to do may have constitutional and legal implications but sharia as governance is archaic, man made law that was frozen in the tenth century because absolutely no place in the 21st century and if she thinks that sharia law cutting off hands of thieves and stoning of women and throwing guys off the highest building is something we want in the western world then i would have a huge problem with that. >> i would have a problem with it, too. >> that is what sharia is.
>> sharia should not be defined. >> let me finish please. extremist use aspects of sharia and secondary texts to justify their killings and violence. this is huge problem within the muslim world to. think that we want to allow sharia as governance in the west is naive to say the least -- >> -- we're not talking about governance of sharia. >> that is sharia's law. >> sharia's law law of the land. >> personal law. >> religious freedom and constitution forbids. >> ladies, newt gingrich walked his comments back later in the day and came out and said i wasn't talking about u.s. born muslims and walking back from politicians. is he saying foreign born and we need more surveillance. do you both agree with that? , what he has done is something fantastic. he has put the cat among the pigeons. brought it out to the open there needs to be a great deal of discussion about this. this is just little points
that he has mentioned and all sicious that need to be discussed openly with muslim western muslims that -- >> -- saba, go ahead. >> many of the u.s. citizens that are naturalized citizens of this country are foreign born. you can't put that test oh if you happen -- a lot of, you know, the san bernardino attacker and the florida attacker both were born in the united states. you can't say that oh now, for some reason if you are born outside that's indication of you becoming a radical. i think those sort of limitations are very naive, we have a very serious national security problem with isis inspired terrorism. we have to address this in a manner which doesn't offend the religious teachings of one in every four human beings on earth. >> saba brings up a great point. what about domestic tears radical lized here living in a basement. >> as i said, what mr. gingrich said may have constitutional and legal implications. what we have to take in mind
is that sharia as governance is definitely not compatible in the 21st century. we have already seen this problem in england where there are huge problems with women's rights. issues within marriage and divorce and polygamy. do we want this here? we have to talk about it. >> what he has done is put this issue out so we can have debate and discussion about it. we shouldn't be hiding behind the fact that this is something that offends me or you. >> saba, final word. >> i agree teaching moment for newt gingrich. he will learn all about what sharia is. he will agree it's just a way of life and you can't offend 1.7 billion muslims. >> great to see you this morning. thanks for the debate. we appreciate it? >> thank you. >> coming up here on the show, fears mount that the rnc in cleveland will descend into chaos. >> i think we have to be concerned about things getting out of hand. >> what's being done to keep
law and order. we are going to talk to the chair of cleveland's public safety committee. that's next. to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain... shoots and burns its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes ordinary tasks extraordinarily painful, i hear you. make sure your doctor hears you too! i hear you because i was there when my dad suffered with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence! step on up and ask your doctor about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you. the full value of your totaled new car. the guy says, "you picked the wrong insurance plan." no, i picked the wrong insurance company. with new car replacement™, we'll replace the full value of your car plus depreciation. liberty mutual insurance.

one of the conventions could be a target? >> well, that's a real possibility. either this convention or the next convention but there has been a highly coordinated level of security plans that have been going on for over a year. coordination with -- led bay the secret service. i'm confident that cleveland's prepared and we will be able to deal with any scenario that comes up. >> okay. kind of walk us through what type of preparations have been made the concrete barriers have sprung up in cleveland hours after that horrific attack that happened there in france and that there are 3,000 security personnel working the convention. what other precautions are being taken? >> well, there are just 3,000 federal employees here. most of them law enforcement from various different agencies. on top of that we have thousands of officers. we don't want to disclose the actual number. but thousands of officers from outside of our own police department as well as
over 500 local law enforcement officials. there has been highly coordinated plan that has been going on. we are prepared. we have all of our military on sight. barriers are in place and we are really excited about hosting these delegates. >> what many would call divisive rhetoric on both sides and protests on both sides turn i have lent over the past several months, how would you compare these conventions one in cleveland about to kick off to years' past as far as security concerns go? >> well, i mean, everything that's been happening within our country for the past two years, there has been a heightened level of, i think, frustration by people who feel they have been marginalized. there has been poor police and community relations last couple of years. couple high profile shootings. people are on edge. top it off. we have our presumptive nominee who is, i think, spoken to the heart strings of some and alienated a few. so, people are going to be
really spirited and they are going to come and to share their first amendment right and we are excited about hosting everyone. >> matt zone, thank you so much for your time today and for looking out for us there in cleveland. cleveland council member and public safety committee chair. we'll be right back. and stool softeners for comfortable relief of hard stools. dulcolax, designed for dependable relief or building the best houses in town. or becoming the next highly-unlikely dotcom superstar. and us, we'll be right there with you, helping with the questions you need answered to get your brand new business started. we're legalzoom and we've already partnered with over a million new business owners to do just that. check us out today to see how you can become one of them. legalzoom. legal help is here.
good morning, everyone, it's saturday, the 16th of july, 2016. i'm anna kooiman. breaking news. turkey in turmoil. [explosion] that country's military attempting a coup overnight. gun fire and explosions going off for hours. hundreds are dead. thousands in custody. the brand new worries this morning about what this means for america's war on terror. >> there is a chance he didn't act alone it turns out. five arrests made this morning and isis takes responsibility for the
terror attack. the truck that murdered dozens of innocent people. we will bring you the latest. >> donald trump's vice presidential pick coming out swinging in his first day on the campaign trail. donald trump understands the anxiety and aspiration of the american people like no leader since reagan and he has given voice to that. >> what can governor mike pence do for the trump ticket? former arkansas governor mike huckabee joins us with his take next. "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> this we start this hour with a fox news alert. a violent night in turkey after members of the military try to stage a coup and force the president out of fire. >> government forces fighting back hard. this video has surfaced it appears to show helicopters firing at civilian protesters in the street.
[gunfire] >> just right there on the streets. military banks blocked major roads and bridges amid massive crowds. hundreds are dead and thousands of rebel soldiers now detained by the government earlier. a bomb going off at the turkish parliament building while in session. [explosion] >> well, despite the carnage, the government insists it is still in control this morning. >> moments ago a turkish official sharing this photo said to be taken inside the prime minister's trashed apartment, which sits inside the parliament building. u.s. officials warning americans from traveling in or out of turkey. >> we have another fox news alert, too. live pictures off of nice, france, looking at the road where a terrorist mowed down dozen earlier this week
killing 84. that road set to reopen just shortly. that comes as isis is claiming responsibility for the vicious attack, calling the truck driver, quote, a soldier of terror. >> the terror organization says the driver was carrying out an order for followers to target nationals of countries that are battling isis. >> and despite initial reports, he acted alone, gave people have now been arrested in connection with to that deadly attack and to talk about all of this and the day's happenings, we want to bring in dr. sebastian gorka with updates on all. this nice to see you, sir, i want to get your take on what has unfolded overnight in turkey. it appears that erdogan is now back in command of that country. the united states coming out pretty quickly and showing their support to him. was that a smart move? >> well, look, it's veryinterese international statements, including the ones coming out of washington have talked about the need for stability and democracy. nobody is cheering for erdogan out there because
erdogan was the problem. this is only one person to blame for this coup and it's the president of turkey he has taken one of the most successful muslim nations of the 20th century and turned it or tried to turn it into fundamentalist state. so this coup if he is a real clear he is the person to blame for this taken. >> dr. gorka get specific on that. when we hear the word democracy, we think about democracy as we know it here in the united states. >> right. >> how different is his government? >> okay. turkey itself is very special. turkey used to be the optimum empire. it put its money on the wrong hold thought austrians
and germans would win. when it loses ataturk says the only way we can survive this defeat is become part of the west. he seculars the empire. separates mosque and state. he says we are now a republic and says you can be a muslim but islam can have nothing to do with running this country. he was successful. he built amazing legacy in the last decade erdogan who is a muslim brotherhood guy said know we need to have theocracy. he brings back religion into politics. he puts -- he intimidates the military. he imprisoned the best generals of the turkish army, including the form everywhere chief of the joint staff on trumped up terrorism charges and as a result he kind of created his own thief dom. he built a crazy palace straight out of north korea. this is guy out of control. he wasn't a good guy.
and the military who were the divarn tores of seq. could -- secularity. they stepped up last night. probably most of their best leaders are already in prison so the coup is failing, unfortunately. >> if you are going to kill the king you better kill the king and they didn't. you better be fast. >> paradoxically sounds like the military coup would have made the country freer and more western why is the white house on the side of were -- >> if they had a choice of doing the right thing or the wrong thing ten out of ten it was always the wrong thing. whether you look at russia, syria, libya, iran, the track record of this administration, president obama, hillary clinton has always been go with the people you shouldn't be supporting and ignore our friends and allies. that's the reality. that's why the world is in chaos today. >> sebastian gore can a,
nicely put. >> thank you, doctor. >> thank you, guys. >> former governor of arkansas and 2016 republican presidential candidate mike huckabee to weigh in on the day's news as well as well as donald trump coming out later this morning and announcing governor mike pence as his running mate. there is so much chaos in this world right now, governor, what does donald trump -- what does mike pence, what do they need to say today to kick off this new ticket? >> you know, when donald trump a few weeks ago lit up a firestorm across the world when he suggested we needed to take another look at nato, today we kind of get a picture as to why. because the 27 member nations are having -- there is 28 members but they are looking at turkey right now. the 28th member and saying how do we defend this? because under article 5, they are supposed to make sure if there is any attack on turkey, it's viewed as an attack on them. in the case where you have an uprising of the people in a democratically elected government, this is really
putting the u.s. is n. a tough spot. dr. gorka had a great comment the fact that, you know, this current president, is he the problem. so, it does require, i think not just the u.s. but others to say okay you remember nato. what about when you go rogue. how do we defend that? >> why wouldn't it be really simple? we support secular readers in the region and not islamist leaders. if that is the guide post for our foreign policy, wouldn't things work out a little better? >> they would work out a lot better, tucker. it could be that simple we are not going to continue to consider an islamic state, hard line islamic state as part of the democratic alliance. but, see how john kerry, hillary clinton, and barack obama would react to that. so, all the more reason of the importance of this election is not just supreme court, it's not just appointments and policies and legislation. it's our place in the world and we face a very clear
distinction between what hillary clinton would do, which is surrender to these thugs and donald trump's which would say no way. >> governor, as we have seen from the clinton campaign in the past. following any terror attack that happens in the west, what we see from them is you need a steady hand and that steady hand is hillary clinton and it's not donald trump. how does donald trump explain that away and will we start to see him do even more of these more measured speeches using teleprompters and things like that? >> well, how steady is hillary's hand kept the world from rocking? the reset in russia? that was a steady hand. boy, that worked out great. syria, lebanon, egypt, iran, name me a place where that steady hand has been anything other than basically a hand that has gone numb. a numb hand is steady. but you don't need a hand that is numb. you need one that knows how to run the controls. hillary doesn't. the one thing we have learned over eight years is she is not competent to be president. even if she was, we can't
trust her. i just don't understand why people would think here is a person who habitually lied. lied under oath to congress, lied to the american people repeatedly. lied to the families of the slain in benghazi to their faces over their children's dead bodies and then we are supposed to trust her with the state craft of the united states. i don't think so. >> we have seen some ads rolled out and last night hillary clinton's ads saying while donald trump was at home watching television hillary clinton was around the world putting pressure on people like vladimir putin and others. i wonder how that will play. >> by the way, yeah. i was just going to say she was really putting the pressure on putin. and that's why he was flying fighters just a few feet above a navy destroyer sitting out in the ocean. give me a break, hillary. we ain't buying. >> so nothing upsets the left really in my lifetime than donald trump's call on ban of muslim immigration into the united states. mike pence appear to do agreed with him last night on hannity. take a look at this.
>> i am very supportive of donald trump's call to temporarily suspend immigration from countries where terrorists influence and impact represents a threat to the united states. what i have heard from donald trump and i believe the position he has articulated resonates with millions of americans is that we have got to find out what's going on and we have got to do something different -- >> polls suggest agree with governor pence should that be part of the platform? >> i believe it will be part of the platform. it connects with common sense. if every time you have a mass terrorist account. someone stands up and says allah akbar, then maybe we have a problem here. every time we had a terrorist attack somebody stood up and said, you know,
yo jesus. i guarantee you we would be talking about these christians we have got to worry about it. but the slaughters across the world, especially these cold blooded savage murders are not coming at the hands of methodists. and i think that's why it's absolutely essential that we exercise whatever it takes to do america's number one job, keep americans safe. >> was pence the right pick, governor? >> is he a good, solid pick, absolutely. he has got the experience in washington. he has been a good governor. nobody has been able to lay a hand on him whether he is not conservative enough. he, of course he is. he has been that way through his whole career. i think he brings the right kind of balance. >> we will see that at 11:00 this morning roll out of the pence trump ticket. governor mike huckabee, great to see you this morning, thanks so much. >> good to see you guys. >> thanks, governor. >> well, democrats already attacking mike pence. hillary's campaign manager
calls him the most extreme vice presidential pick ever. but will the democrats keep their focus on pence? former ohio congressman dennis kucinich says. no i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you
can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.
the republican ticket is set. in case you have been out of the country, donald trump has tapped indiana governor mike pence as his vp. democrats are already on the attack. what can we expect? they are calling him extreme. talk to long-time congressman from ohio and democratic presidential candidate and mayor of cleveland by the way dennis kucinich. is he a fox news contributor
and friend. great to see you this morning. >> good to be with you. thank you. >> this is almost like a bumper sticker that someone sat in the back of the closet and dusted off he is extreme. that's scary. will that work? will they continue to say that about pence? >> first, you have to see why donald trump chose mike pence. first of all, if you look at trump's campaign needs, trump had to pick a social conservative because the social conservatives in the republican heart had had a real concern about where donald trump is coming from. and mike pence is an answer to that. in addition to that, the democrats, i don't think you can make a campaign only about pence. they are going to challenge the ticket, of course. but, i think that you have to keep in mind that every challenge they make to donald-pence confirms to social conservatives the trump that donald trump made. >> wouldn't it just be easier if you are hillary clinton to run a campaign on behalf of the middle class? i mean, like you can attack
trump and some of the things you say are accurate and that's probably fair. only reason trump succeeded only one paying attention to working people in the country? why wouldn't hillary clinton feel that message. >> i have to tell you this campaign going to be based inevitably on the economic issues. i'm very concerned as a democrat about our party's unwillingness to challenge frontally the disparities that have been created by the trade laws nafta, china trade and new transpacific partnership. i think that's a serious weakness in the democratic party's position. bernie sanders tried to correct it. it didn't happen so. donald trump has an area to exploit there that's pretty wide unless something else emerges. >> hedge fund guys don't like it. maybe that's why. here is what john podesta said billion pence most extreme pick in generation. donald trump has doubled down on some of his most
disturbing beliefs by choosing incredibly divisive and running mate failed economic policies that favor millionaires and corporations over working families. i'm not going to count the adjectives in that statement there are a lot of them. i'm wondering, with k. a campaign that's taking more money from wall street than any campaign in history has taken turn around and accuse the other guy of being a tool of the rich. >> it is problematic, let's say. with respect to mike pence, you know, we can certainly see how his positions on gay rights issues, and a woman's right to choose will be fodder for the democratic attack machine, and, frankly, you know, i served with mike pence. i have differences with him on those issues. i also want to note that he voted against bailout. and that's something he and i stood shoulder to shoulder on. many you know, i don't agree with him on his socially conservative point of view. but i have to say this, that he is, as a human being, is
he a decent man. i don't think that you can make a campaign out of just simply attacking everything he stands for without realizing there is a lot -- there are americans who agree with him and i think that to have a debate about those issues is a good thing. engage in character assassination with someone because they have a different position i don't think that's good for the country. >> i didn't know he voted against the bailout of 2008. that's interesting. den issue in kucinich, good to see you. >> good to be with you, bye. >> key of american ally now in a total state of chaos after a coup apparently failed this morning. hundreds have died. thousands more are in jail. what does this mean for us and the war on terror? a military panel with three generals up next. don't miss this. i've been blind since birth. i go through periods where it's hard to sleep at night, and stay awake during the day. learn about non-24 by calling 844-844-2424. or visit my24info.com.

a fox news alert now. turkey in turmoil this morning. the key u.s. al lay in the middle east. in a state of instability. and we have an amazing panel to get to right now. we have a military panel. our general panel this morning, we want to bring in lieutenant general michael bar barrow. william boynton. and, of course, we have richard newton all joining thus morning to weigh in on the developments overnight. general newton, i want to start with you, the president jumped right in on this and threw support behind the president of turkey erdogan. was that the right move? >> well, first off, the turmoil in turkey, i think, has caught us by surprise. key ally, of course we have air base there and so forth. i think it's going to be a challenge there for us now as erdogan tilts obviously towards islam. i think that will be tested. i think the president
probably had no other choice than to support him. again, the challenge is going to be as erdogan tilts away from secular leadership to more islamic. i think that's very troubling for us in an already complex region but also our fight against isis. turkey is key and will remain key. >> what was the response of the obama administration the right one? >> well, clayton, i think it was the only response they could make. is he a nato ally. and despite our dissatisfaction with him, i think it was the only response we could make. at the end of the day, i think it's going to hurt and not help the fight against isis. you know, let's not kid ourselves. erdogan has been a part-time ally in this fight against isis. he has several priorities. first remove assad from power and second contain the kurds. a distant third is taking actions against isis. he has been accused and
there is evidence that he has been complicit in the flow of foreign fighters south and flow of resources north. so, this will strengthen his hand at home, probably double down on his strategy. it will not be helpful to this fight against isis. >> great point by general bar barrow. general boynton to this point there were signs that once we thought this hedge against islamic fundamentalism in that region seems to be unraveling, is that the case? is that the way you see it? >> well, i do. i actually think you are going to see a the love turmoil in turkey now as a result of the failed coup. and, remember that erdogan has played both ends of this, erdogan has also been complicit in boot legging oil, the black market oil that has made isis wealthy as a matter of fact. he has complicit in that. there is also evidence that there had been some isis staging areas and potentially training areas that are across the border
in turkey. now that he has -- this coup has failed, i think you are going to see erdogan totally unleashed and i think you are going to see a turkey now that will continue to see the individual civil rights usurped by a man who ultimately wants to be the leader of the new caliphate. >> so troubling. what a roll back of 100 years of turkish history. general newton. let's move to france now. beautiful afternoon. families out on this promenade celebrating bastille day. their version of independence day. suddenly this horrible truck attack that kills 84 people. we now know new developments overnight that isis has claimed responsibility for this attack and what we thought was a lone wolf, this loner as people described him, a creepy loner may have had accomplices and help and now ties to isis. what do you make of this? >> what i make of it, again, is isis has proved it has a
reach outside of the caliphate and it's expanding. i think there are three things that are key. we need to recognize that we are at war against radical islamic terrorism and so forth. we need to certainly recognize the fact or identify the enemy, radical islamic terrorism and come up with a comprehensive strategy. again, this is not just about certainly the atrocities that we found in france with 84 men, women, and children killed. but the comprehensive aspect of this, i think is something that we need to address and need to address it now. >> general boynton, the idea of these soft targets, gone it seems are the days of grand attacks on the twin towers and grabbing airplanes to do it. now just a gathering of people terrify festival, at a circus is that how you see it. >> certainly i see it that way. that doesn't mean there won't be a return to the much bigger attacks. they are accomplishing their mission with these soft
targets. i agree with general newton. we are at war. it's time for american leadership to wake up and recognize that we are at war. we have no option here but to fight back unless we're willing to cede our own constitutional liberties to a group of people who wants to destroy our way of life. >> general barbarro do you agree with the other two generals that we are at war and if so how do you stop an attack like we saw in nice if you are the united states? how do you prepare in a war like that? >> well, we are -- isis is at war with us. it's time for us to recognize that and to take appropriate actions. twosh big ideas you have to get right as a global strategy isis has one and we don't. isis is moving in to ungoverned spaces in north africa. sinai getting a foot hold in we are treating it tactically, mosul, raqqa.
' key piece of our strategy must to be attack the network, their leadership, their propaganda machines. isis will continue to move to the softest path of least resistance whether it's a cyber attack which we will see next from them or these continued attacks like we have seen in nice. it's a global fight and we need a global strategy to attack this in the -- network. >> great to see you all of you this morning. we appreciate your time. >> thanks. >> donald trump is hours away from officially introducing mike pence as his running mate. john roberts what we can expect from the new republican ticket. there is john. and then one of the men reportedly on trump's short list upset with donald's decision. who is it? veteran g.o.p. strategist mark mckinnon has the scoop. he is behind that great documentary the circus.
he is up next. ♪ ♪ i was going to give it a try, but i didn't really think it was going to really happen. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery.
good morning, john. >> clayton, anna, good morning to you. while some conservatives are not happy with the pick of mike pence thinking he abandoned his conservative principles when he signed some changes to the freedom restoration. campaign happy so far. pence is a good choice gives them cover on the right. favorite of movement conservatives. also had a experience of 12 years in congress. he could be a good liaison between the house should trump become president what's going on with the folks on capitol hill. big chance for mike pence. remember during the indiana primary he got behind ted cruz a lot of people saw it as less than enthusiastic endorsement. fully on the trump train saying best for america. particularly in times of increased taste attacks around the world. here is pence. >> i think the wider world knows that america needs to be strong for the world to be safe and secure. and donald trump is going to
provide the broad shouldered american leadership on the world stage that i think will make the world a more stable place. >> now, there are some points of convergence and divergence between trump and pence. points of convergence over abortion, corporate tax cuts. points of divergence, just about six months ago that pence called the proposed ban on muslim immigration offensive and unconstitutional while trump says that he would rip up the transpacific partnership on day one. mike pence was a big supporter of it he appears to have gotten the trump memo on trade. listen to this. >> i have always supported free trade. donald trump supports free trade as well. trade and commerce supports american jobs and supports growth in this country. but, i think when we elect one of the best negotiators in the world, as president of the united states, i'm open to renegotiating these trade agreements. >> now, after today's
rollout event, donald trump will be uncharacteristically dark in terms of campaigning with his running mate. mike pence does have an event this afternoon in zionsville, indiana. it will be kind of a welcome home event at 5:00 this afternoon. clayton? anna? >> john roberts for us in midtown. thanks so much. >> the great john roberts on sixth avenue. what was the reaction behind the scenes choosing pence as his vice president? joining us co-creator of the circus mark mckinnon a man who has seen this process up close. what do you think the conversation was like between trump and newt gingrich and chris christie the two other people in the running. >> conversation this is exciting guy. this simplive guy. big ideas guy, bombastic guy, but that's exactly the wrong choice for him. i mean, what people -- they don't want to double down on donald trump, voters where he needs to add to the equation. they want to know that somebody is calm collective, they don't want another
pirate on the ticket. they don't want johnny deposit and captain jack phillips. >> they apt navigator. >> i'm the captain now. >> what do you think their mood is this morning about the choice donald trump made? >> well, word is that christie is a little off the chain but, you know, is he a competitive guy. i wanted it and i'm a fighter but at the end of the day he has been very loyal and i think he will be a good soldier and newt the same thing. i don't think newt was ever really in it he was attractive idea as a maverick outsider insider but i think it came down to christie and pence. i think trump made the right choice. it sends a very good signal to voters out there who had concerns about his judgment. this is where he hit the pause button and didn't make impulsive choice. he made a very rational choice. >> you there were with the cameras and following this closely. chris stirewalt reporting it closely on megyn kelly's show that there was turmoil about this boxing in. he had until noon on friday whether or not he was going
to run for re-election as governor of indiana and did they -- did this leak come out of governor pence's camp to sort of force donald trump's hand? >> came from somewhere. i don't know that it forced his hand. here is the difference between this ticket and like the palin pick, for example. this was a situation where trump really had three pretty good choices. any throw of those guys could have been -- could be vice president. they are guys who could sit in the chair and say yeah that guy could be president. it was not like he was forced into a bad decision. >> were they trying to backtrack it. there was reports that there was backtracking going on to maybe get out of this. was trump checking with his lawyers to switch it out? >> this is a guy with three great choices. wanted to make sure at the last second he had christie appealing and others appealing. wanted to push it at the very last second and make the right choice. >> this is the right choice reassures establishment there is an adult in the room. >> and american voters and swing voters. >> are the people who run the republican party for the past 30 years happy about this? are the bushes happy about
this. >> yes. i think that people think that pence is a very steady hand. a solid guy. you know, sort of the midwestern values. that's just the right balance you need on a trump ticket. >> how much do you think it matters? people vote mostly for the top of the ticket, don't they mostly they do. in this case we have a nominee who has no government experience. you could argue that this is a situation defined precedence does make a bit of a difference with trump. people like bomb bats stick and shape things up. they wants to make sure there is somebody over there there is an adult in the room as well. >> will this help donald trump or hurt donald trump democrats seem to be latching on to this idea that mike pence is worse for american america. >> i was in the middle of that dick cheney democrats come out and lacerate him about these more conservative positions and bad positions.
none of that matters with vp at the end of the day. look at the ticket they look at the guy at the top and vice president salute and say i'm on board. >> how important is their personal relationship? >> i think it's important and that's kind of lucky that the plane got grounded in indiana and the family, all the families kind of got together. i think that's an important thing. that cemented the deal. important to donald trump. there has got to be some chemistry. that's why it has a hard decision because he does have great chemistry with chris christie. >> are you hearing anything? >> all i'm hearing that everybody else is hearing that it looks very likely tim kaine. he checks almost every box. >> those rooting for elizabeth warren you don't think so. >> no especially with bernie sanders endorsement. narrative it wasn't a full throated endorsement. i didn't see anybody walk out. i thought it was for bernie sanders, that's about as warm and fuzzy as you get. and by the way, the democratic party at this point right now is 85%
unified with bernie on board. at this point in 200867%. so they're actually in much better shape than they were with obama-clinton in 2008. >> so obedient those democrats all of a sudden. [ laughter ] >> does gary johnson factor into this at all. >> absolutely. look -- i don't make many predictions but i think they will meet the 15% threshold to be in the fall debates. once they get that attention they could easily get 20%. >> interesting. >> a lot of disaffected republicans and democrats. good safe place for them to land former governors. >> mark mckinnon the show is the circus. you already watch it but keep watching it's narrative. >> back to the breaking news now in turkey hundreds dead. thousands detained after the failed coup. lieutenant colonel ollie north says this is bad for the united states and he joins us next to explain next. >> some level of chaos for the republican national convention in cleveland. are the cops ready for it
all? we are live on the scene. >> one muslim group has a message for fellow muslims. see something, say something. now they are facing backlash for this billboard. the group's founder joins us next. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment.
hi, friends, god morning, 14 minutes before the top of the hour. you know the slogan, see something, say something, it's a call to every american to help combat terrorism by reporting suspicious activity. >> one muslim organization in chicago is hoping that directing their phrase at their fellow muslims will help fight terror and islamophobia at the same time. facing backlash for this billboard. the founder of the association of pakistani americans of bowling brook. the group that hung that bill bored and joins us now. >> thank you for inviting me. >> what compelled to you hang this billboard?
>> you know, whenever there is any terror attack happens anywhere in the world it hits the home. and it really or directly effects us. and that's the reason concerned citizens came about it and they are saying we have to do something because our name is there. and we get blamed directly, even though it's act of some individuals. and, what we are trying to do is we are echoing the message that homeland security already had. and there are a lot of islamic organizations are doing this already. but we are just reinforcing the message that if you see something, some activity that's -- could be a muslim non-muslim, could be anybody in your neighborhood. please let the please authorities or law enforcement authorities know and make their job easier. >> well, it's not resonating with some in your community. executive director on
american islamic relations fired back with this comment saying this is ahmed raheed i'm in the business of countering islamaphobia. slogan misperception on a billboard is going to help. what is it referring to. >> i know -- i agree with their comments what they are saying, again, like we said before we are reinforcing it they are doing a great job. i have no problem with them. we came out bold. i knew there was going to be a reaction and i was ready for it i got more positive calls and responses than the negative responses. >> do you have any regrets at all? >> no, not at all. if i have to do it again i will do it again. >> attacks in nice in france, came out and said that the united states, we have to take this very seriously, we are at war and we should test every muslim on whether or not they agree
with sharia law and live their life according to sharia law. i want to play this sound bite and get your response. >> western civilization is in a war. we should, frankly, test every person here who is of a muslim background and if they believe in sharia, they should be deported, sharia is incompatible with western civilization. >> it's incompatible with western civilization. he later walked that back and basically said he was referring to foreign born muslims. what was your response to the speaker's comments? >> see, what speaker -- sharia law, you cannot implement in here. nowhere in the world do you see sharia law implemented 100 percent. some individuals cannot impose sharia law it has to come from the covment government to. have sharia law government implement it no way that is going to happen. >> temporarily banning non-u.s. muslims from the united states and the answer
from registered voters, now, this is not just conservatives, this is registered voters, 53% are in favor. 41% oppose. do you think this will be a winning talking point for donald trump in november? >> you know what? we muslims are peace loving people. there are 1 or 2% of people, maybe less than 1% of people who have the backing of some of the political organizations, not religious organizations. and they have hijacked the religion. and those are the ones and i am 100 percent favoring it, if anyone who is suspicious coming to this country he should be profiled. should check their background before entering the united states. i have no ifs, ands and buts about it. >> wish more would speak out on this issue lick you. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> have a nice day. 10 minutes before the top of the hour. coming up on "fox & friends." is the cleveland convention prepared for protests and people showed up armed?

ing. hi, everyone, all eyes on cleveland. the city beefing up security for the rnc to prevent chaos and potential attack. fences are already being putting up and extra measures being taken to be prepared for the worse. peter doocy is in cleveland this morning with behind the scenes look at security. good morning, peter. >> good morning, tucker and anna and right now security officials are doing a day long sweep of the convention center where a lot of the events are going to be monday through nurse they
rnc. outside what we can -- as far as we can tell, the press are nearing completion. they have got these jersey barriers popping up in the middle of major intersections, the idea, of course, these were going to be here before the nice attack. the idea generally is to stop a truck bomb from getting close, now, of course, it would also be what would deter a nice style attack. we are also seeing a hard perimeter go up. they have got these fences 8 feet tall. they are supposed to be tough to scale because you can't really grab on to anything. the problem though, according to rnc officials i have spoken, to they are just too close to the building like that one where stuff is going to be going on. the reason that the zone, the event zone is only 1.7 square miles instead of the 3.5 square miles that they would have wanted which would have pushed the fences back a little bit. the aclu sued. they thought the protesters and demonstrators were going to be too far away. they won the lawsuit.
now this is what you get, the fence is this far away from where the delegates and dignitaries are going to be this week. still, the local officials here are getting a lot of help from the feds and jeh johnson was at the quicken loans center last night. he says he thinks everything is going to be okay. there was a protest last night the first of many we expect. now we wait to see if there is any trouble with that and also we wait to see just exactly how many people end up coming to make their voices here rnc. back to you. >> where are the protests going to be, peter. we are all headed there by the way this afternoon. >> they have designated areas where you are allow to do protest for a certain amount of time. but it's obviously the ones that are not sanctioned that are causing the most heart burn for planners right now. >> peter doocy. we will see you tonight. >> thanks, peter. >> planes in the sky, tanks on the ground this morning, nearly 300 are dead in turkey after a failed coup there. we are live on the ground in istanbul next. >> isis claiming

[gunfire] >> the turkish military attempt ago coup overnight with explosions and gunfire into crowds of people. and at this hour another development, greece and turkey now at odds. this after turkish military coups flee to the neighboring country and plead for asylum. >> chaos. there is a chance he didn't act alone after all. five arrests in morning in france as isis takes
responsibility for the terror attack that left dozens of people dead in nice. we're live on the ground in the south of france as tourists return to the scene of that horrifying attack. >> donald trump's vp pick mike pence already going on the defensive. less than 24 hours after he joined the ticket, democrats are trying to dig up dirt from his past. this morning the governor responds here on fox and "fox & friends" hour three darts right now. ♪ ♪ >> welcome in on this saturday morning. we want to get right to that fox news alert. turkey in turmoil. an attempted military coup results in a night of explosions, gunfire, leaving hundreds dead and more than 1,000 people injured. [gunfire] >> turkish government insisting it is still in
control this morning. >> our juneed huddy is life from istanbul, turkey with the very latest, good morning, john. >> tucker, anna, and clayton good morning to you, right now what we know is that at least 160 people were killed. includes civilians shot by some of those that launched the coup, but if you include those involved in the coup, that number could be well over 300 killed during the overnight attempted coup here in turkey. we are in istanbul we're overlooking the water here. quite contrasting. i'm seeing tour bye boats going by with people on it obviously overnight quite different, clashes here in istanbul and ankara in particular and when the parliament came under fire there was explosion. we showed this earlier one more time, take a look.
[explosion. >> there was quite a bit of fighting in ankara. in fact, a friend of mine showed me video that he took of a helicopter gun ship opening fire at something on the ground presumably, you know, maybe police or other forces. the coup started late last night. it was launched by pockets and military and police factions. on basically the general public ordering a mandatory curfew. but supporters of president erdogan took to the streets. tens of thousands not only in ankara but also in istanbul in sax sim square to -- taksim square to show support. opened fire on some of those protesters again 160 people killed. more than 14 others
wondered. at this point earlier today turkish president erdogan was on a seaside vacation. he was out of the country when this coup was launched. immediately came back and arrived at the airport earlier this morning. supporters went into the airport there. again, he said that the coup was a failed attempt and that those responsible would be brought to justice and would be dealt with harshly in the harshest way, he said. this as we're also hearing that other members of the coup or at least commanders that tried to launch this and were part of it are being rounded up at this point. and that will likely continue. at this point we are hearing at least 2800 both military and police personnel have been doe tand, have been arrested in connection with this failed coup attempt. and at this point things have calmed down in ankara. my friend says that the streets are empty there. here in istanbul, again, it's quite a contrast of scones. a beautiful day. people on the bostras, tour
boats again. tapped political instability and chaos over the past few months not only because of the terrorism but political environment here in turkey and istanbul. as i said earlier, things remain quiet for now. bark to you. >> thanks a lot, john. >> thanks, john. >> wow. another alert for you this, no, isis is now claiming responsibility for the horrifying attack in nice, france. they called the driver of the truck that murdered all those people a soldier. >> isis security source says the driver was carrying out an order for followers of nationals fighting isis. french interior minister revealing this morning that the terrorists seem to have became radical layed very quickly. >> despite initial reports he acted alone, five people have been arrested in connection with to the deadly attack. the terrorist's ex-wife is one of those detained. >> the death toll is 84 people. 202 injured want to bring in
now to discuss all of this our old friend lieutenant colonel oliver north. good morning. so to turkey first. >> why don't you guys ever have me on -- tucker, why don't you have me on on a saturday morning when people get up, there has got to be some saturday when there is good news and there is not much today. >> there hasn't been. we have had an 8 year run of bad news. the administration -- >> -- saturday mornings you do. >> that's what we specialize in. the administration came out almost immediately in support of president erdogan in turkey. why would the u.s. government issue support, public statements of support islamist auto craft. >> they don't seem that way. let's start with that ever since erdogan got to be president. he has purged the military. he has taken over the courts, home intelligence service and basically things up upside down. today's military in turkey
is now about 30% secular along the old ata turk model if you will. 50% islamist therefore backing erdogan and 20% gulan, he is in bethlehem, pea. he has been wedded to this guy since the beginning. he is not a friend of america. that does not mean that america is out overthrowing governments we don't like or don't like us. the bottom line of it is the folks who staged this coup led by junior -- the chief of staff of the military was taken hostage in this. when the coups work in places like this and they have worked before in that part of the world, it's usually the boss that takes over, if you will. and then there is an election held like what happened with mubarak taking charge, with elsie is el-sisi being elected. one offered gone's muslim
buddies. bottom line is the united states is never going to back the overthrow of a democratically elected government. we just don't do that bottom line of this one is, this is not a good news story because erdogan is not a friend. the coup has apparently failed. gives the impression that fighting is not yet over. but the government appears to have gotten the upper hand. >> democracy but not democracy certainly as we know it here what happens in erdogan survives this long-term? >> well, look it, there is no doubt this guy is going to become increasingly repressive. autocratic already. authoritarian double down as a consequence of what happened there it's bad news for nato. bad news for united states. major intelligence failure. we had absolutely no idea it was going to happen i have been on the phone with folks over there who know what is going on. they say, look, this is not going to end well for the folks who pulled the coup.
it's not going to end well for the united states in this part of the world. quite frankly the big winners in all of this are the kabul that's now been put together between assad in syria, putin in moscow and of course the ayatollahs in tehran. >> turkey has long been seen as this hedge against islamic fundamentalism secular hedge against. this where do you see this relationship going forward and can we count on that any longer? >> this is bad news for nato. erdogan would not allow nato to use the insulate air base that we built until about this time last year. this war against isis has been running since essentially 2014. he didn't let us use the northern entrance, if you will, to fight against when we went into iraq and part of iraqi freedom back in 2003. the fourth infantry division. that's when he began running the show over there as prime minister.
he by the way has pulled a putin. he was prime minister from 2003 to 2014. now he is the president. and he has got a plan that essentially modifies the constitution so he can stay longer and become a true ooj oat accurate autocrat. mike pence will join him at the hilton hotel here at midtown, manhattan. >> that's where where you find john roberts with a preview. >> good morning, clayton and anna. this will be the first time for donald trump to appear with mike pence since the announcement was made over twitter yesterday that he would be his running mate. the first time that's ever happened to the best of my knowledge. this is not a natural alliance. a couple months ago he had sought the endorsement of governor mike pence but instead he got behind
senator ted cruz said to be half hearted endorsement. looked lukewarm. i talked to pence about it he said i'm supporting ted cruz now but if somebody else becomes the republican nominee i will get fully behind them. based on what he told sean hannity last night when it comes to trump he has done exactly that. >> first off, he's the people's choice. and i believe in the collective wisdom of the american people. donald trump understands the anxiety and aspiration of the american people like no leader since reagan. he has given voice to that and people have rallied around him and will continue to rally around him. >> a lot of conservatives are very employeesed with the choice of pence. they believe that he is shores up donald trump on the right. is he a rock solicited conservative. pest choips. some conservatives not too happy about w. it after he made mochings of course moves. hillary clinton's response is any indication, conservatives who are kind of on the fence about it can take heart because they are
painting him as an arch conservative. hillary clinton saying if you had any doubts about trump sticking with his dangerous plan for america, say hello to his v.p. pick. already trying to define mike pence today. >> extreme so. pence describes himself in effect as reagan protestor gay of course is not. are they in sync can you tell? >> some points of convergence and divergence. pence was a big supporter of the transpacific partnership. donald trump says he will rip it up on day one. six months ago mike pence tweeted out that he shout such talk was unconstitutional. i think he got the memo in that meeting with donald trump yesterday. >> our sean hannity had the first interview with governor pence last night and, yes, he was defending trump on that muslim ban. >> john roberts in midtown, manhattan with a preview of today's events.
thanks so much, john. >> well, the failed military coup, the apparently failed military coup in turkey leads key american allies in a state of chaos. a spokesman says it would have been better for the u.s. if the military had succeeded in overthrowing the government. he explains why next. >> guess who is on their way to cleveland? the host of the five. where are they this morning. find out when they join us live just ahead ♪ ♪ ere chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,

streets of turkey it's one of our most allies in the middle east, playing a key role in our fight against isis. >> that's for sure. what does this mean for us and for our foreign policy. fox news contributor rick grenell joins us now. good to see you this morning, rick. the world seems to be collapsing, certainly it's chaotic. what are the effects for us of this coup? >> well, lack, you know, so far i think that president obama had the right measured response. because, turkey is a nato ally. he was -- president erdogan was elected freely. there was some questions about the election. but we said that the elections were free and fair and i think that what we have to be able to could -- erdogan has been moving toward the islamists.
taking turkish policy uncomfortable for the united states and allies like israel. picked fights with every single side, every single country of the syrian conflict. he has been very clear, erdogan has been very clear about getting rid of assad in syria, which is u.s. policy, but nothing has been done about it and the growing frustration, i think, we have seen the turkey bombing, the airport bombing in istanbul. and then i think the nice attack was probably just too much for the secularists inside the military. you remember that the secularists inside the military have been over the last years, replaced with some islamists, loyalists of president erdogan, so even within the turkish military, which is a very powerful military, there has been an ongoing, if you will, weeding out of the secularists in favor of the islamists. that's been a problem for the military. and they finally said enough is enough. >> rick that is troubling, as we have been talking about on the show.
turkey is seen as a hedge against islamic fundamentalism. ally we can lean on and work with in part, i guess. not dwindling over the past so years, but where do we go from here if now, as you mention, these secularists being pulled out of the military, and tried? >> look, you know, you are looking at a world without u.s. leadership. i'm somebody who believes that the u.s. has a responsibility. we have seen this problem coming. no one should be surprised. it's shocking, actually, to hear the white house say that they were surprised by this move. i mean, when you see the airport attack. you see the nice attack. it doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell that you there is going to be problems inside turkey we should have been leaning on erdogan's decisions all along. he was signaling to us that he was getting more islamic in his views. getting closer towards the islamist. and that was a problem. and, you know, look, i don't think that you can take away the politics of this.
the hillary clinton statement, for instance, on what's happened in turkey was really more of the same in the status quo. she is talking about, you know, talking and having more powerful diplomacy. this is someone from -- who was the head diplomat for the united states and turkey went off the rails when she was our top diplomat. turkey signaled, for instance, when they picked a fight on the gaza blockade, president erdogan sent the flotilla to gaza, that challenged the united states policy. that challenged israel's policy. and we did very little to let the islamist know. >> ric grenell, former u.s. spokesperson, thanks for your time today. >> thank you. >> last night things got a little wild when the host of the five finally hit the road. they are on a bus, cruising across america. where are they this morning? what are they eating? we'll find out in about five minutes. stay tuned. >> plus, some are calling trump's pick of mike pence boring and dull. but will the indiana

to that i don't think that you can make a campaign out of just simply attacking everything he stands for without realizing there is a lot -- there is americans who agree with him. >> sure there are and pence's conservative credentials are they the right clement to trump? >> our political group is back scott rasmussen caitlin huey burns and the mayor of miami beach philip lavigne. nice to see all of you this morning. >> thank you. >> caitlin, you heard the comments from one of the supporters that there could be one of the most extreme vice presidential picks for conservatives in a long time. is this going to hurt donald trump? >> i think pence really at this point does no harm. i think he helps him with his immediate hurdle, which is unifying the republican base. and he hasn't done that yet. pence is well respected among conservatives and congress. you heard the statement from paul ryan. democrats though were, of course, quick on the attack. and this is also a challenge for the trump campaign. they didn't have a big
rollout of pence yesterday. remember the announcement was delayed. they -- donald trump tweeted that pence was the ticket, but they had no, you know, no bullet points, nothing on their website to announce the pick and kind of guard themselves against the attacks from democrats. i'm sure we will see more of that today. they have a chance to kind of turn the page. present a united front ahead of the convention. >> are clinton supporters scared of this guy. >> not at all. >> you saw the tweet from hillary clinton checking those boxes is he extreme. he is really just donald trump with different hair. basically. >> no question. from what i hear from republicans i think they wish the ticket was upside down and pence was at the top of the ticket and trump was either at the bottom or gone. he said not that long ago cigarette smoking doesn't kill not dangerous for your health. number two, the guy literally used campaign funds to finance his house mortgages. he has a lot in common with donald trump. he has a lot to manipulate real estate. he was in congress. do you know what he passed? he actually got nothing done
as a law. as i said before, when it comes to the lbgt community they should be concerned. this guy is against everything to help people. he is not for the middle class. is he for donald trump. >> he brings up a good point. democrats are going to latch on to this as they have immediately. will this guy actually hurt donald trump in any way? >> let's be clear, the democrats had the response-out clinton campaign had the response that said fill in the blank is the most extreme person nominated in the generation. >> ready to governmental that's right. when they knew when the announcement was coming. fill in the name and a few details. the purpose of this ♪ to hurt donald trump. it's to fire up the democratic base. hillary clinton is not generating a lot of enthusiasm. they have got to do something. and one of the ways you do that is you say this guy is even scarier than donald trump. and to democrats who liked bernie sanders or who aren't sure what to do, that's a call to arms. that's what this is about. >> it's been a rough week for hillary clinton. it's been a rough time. take a look at some of the most recent polls right now. it's got to be scary in the
clinton camp right now. look at this. nearly tied. this was -- seemed like, you know, it was a shoe in for hillary clinton months ago. not any longer you have got to be everybody nervous look at florida, state elect the president she is ahead of donald trump in two recent polls. she will win florida and she'll be president. donald trump is going to resonate with the extreme right wing the diversity of fbi investigation. and it's ruling. hillary clinton has very negative numbers as does donald trump. these are the two most unpopular candidates in history. so, that's what's kind of fueling the fire on both sides. but we are seeing her
honesty and her trustworthy numbers are making this a close race. those negatives are really problematic for her. >> the poll master, scott, what do you see final word. >> not really about what's happening with the fbi. it's what's happening in dallas and baton rouge and nice and in turkey these events are going to sway the electorate when you have two unpopular candidates. >> great to see all of you this morning. thanks so much. see a couple people out there at the convention. all right. coming up on the show lieutenant general michael flynn was being considered running mate. what does he think of pence pick? cowpsd up rv on the side of the road in rural pennsylvania. how are the five feeling this morning? we woke them up early to find out in hershey, pennsylvania. ♪ ♪

welcome back, the nice attacker may have had help in his deadly rampage. >> isis takes responsibility that left 84 innocent people dead. >> amy kellogg is live until nice with the breaks details on this side of the story. good morning, amy. >> hi, clayton and anna. isis did claim responsibility that the attack was carried out by one of its soldiers but it is still not clear whether or not he had any associates or contacts with the terrorist organization. the defense minister just in the last 45 minutes here said it appears that he may have joined the group individually. heeding its call -- violent calls. france's interior minister added that it seems that he radicalized very rapidly. now, this information may have come from those raids which took place in nice this morning in which three members of his encourage, the truck driver murder's
entourage being picked um. they are being interrogated as we speak. the interior minister also added this is a new kind of attack. and for that france needs to be prepared. this did not involve, apparently training camp or the composition of any explosives. it was carried out by someone's own hands. quite frankly simply, anna and clayton. >> unbelievable. all right. more on this story and that side of this this morning, thanks, amy: anna and tucker over to you. >> thanks. plans ahead the republican national convention that kicks off on monday. could protests there help or hurt donald trump? he calls himself the law and order candidate. what would be the political reverberations of chaos in that city? here to tell us is political and legal analyst and fox news contributor and our friend eboni williams. >> good morning, tucker. >> so we are all headed there this afternoon. i think everyone going to cleveland this year is excited and concerned. >> sure. >> every whack job in the world is going to show up.
if something bad happens and i pray it doesn't. what are the political effects of that. >> this is one of those instances, tucker, where that would not necessarily be good for trump. before when we have seen international terrorists attack, trump has seen a bump in the polls, because i do think there has been a framing of him being antidote to that type of terrorism or violence. i think here it's not enough for him to play to his current base. broaden that base out as we go into a general there is a segment of the population, tucker, that are concerned that if they feel it's trump that's drawing this chaos and violence and animosity, it might start to be more trouble than it's worth. >> right. >> i do think, especially in light of dallas, there is a lot of fatigue and grief still around this issue. so i think that for trump's sake and for america's sake and cleveland's sake, they really want to keep that contained and well taken care of. >> i think it's a smart analysis. it's not trump's fault. >> right. >> the owner of -- owner of
chaos attaches itself to him. >> connects the dot. >> doesn't that set up for protesters to create havoc. >> i believe the last thing i saw some 60 some odd groups applying for 20-some odd permits. i have spoken to calvin williams. they are taking this seriously, tucker. they have 4,000 between local, state, and federal law enforcement agents prepared for. this they have 2,000 sets of right gear. they -- riot gear. they are trying to separate the group people for trump and people against trump. they are trying to create buffer zones to keep this as safe as possible. >> up until a couple weeks ago we are going to stop him at the convention. that's all done, isn't it? >> mostly. i do know there is a couple of groups, i believe it's called together for never trump. so there is going to be small segments. nothing like i think a lot of the g.o.p. is coalescing around the issue this is their nominee and certainly they are going to put that
energy against hillary clinton rather than to continue to kind of fight a losing battle against donald trump. >> interesting. i agree with everything you said. >> thank you, tucker. that's a good morning. [ laughter ] >> i appreciate you coming on. >> thank you. >> still ahead, a big show, a lot is going on, lieutenant general michael flynn and geraldo weighing in this morning. a truck was used to murder dozens of innocents in france. could another be stopped within a laser? could stop terror, this kind anyway, in its tracks. the american red cross

nice is not the first time a vehicle has been used as a weapon in france. back in december of 2014, in dijon, france, ran over 11 pedestrians while reportedly shouting allahu akbar. in 2015, a man drove into a gas station in lyon. and on new year's day this year, a man rammed his car into soldiers outside a mosque. two people were injured there. amid the recent violence, new hope for a possible solution that can potentially stop terror attacks in their tracks. kurt the cyber guy is here with the latest information and technology to fight terror. good morning. >> good morning. we know now 84 dead, 200 in the hospital in nice, france, could that have been different? some people in the technology world are saying yes, indeed it could be, if the police had the sort of technology that is available now. >> but it all happened so
quickly. this man plowed through all of those people, going a mile and a quarter. that's a long distance. but the new technology, this rf safe stop could have stopped him in his tracks. how? >> it could. here's what needs to line up in the stars for this to happen. you need to have a major event such as what was going on and the police in such presence that they have this kind of detection. look at this device, it's shooting off electro magnetic rays into the target vehicle. if the police had this and could have pursued the truck, within about 200 feet of the truck, you turn this on and it shuts down the vehicle it works on any sort of engine on any sort of vehicle, including semi tractor-trailers and it would have shut it down and he would have had no power to continue. >> it's different than putting out spikes. >> spikes don't work, they simply don't work. no police department in the world could have caught up with a spike strip and set that out in a crowd of people. it's not a practical solution.
this is a practical solution. because it doesn't hurt anyone else around. and it's very effective, very fast. something else that's coming that could have application, mainly from defense, take a look at what's from northrop grumman. lasers that can target an engine up to a mile away. it puts a hot spot in an engine or vehicle and it burns right through and shuts it down permanently. that's called hell hound. >> where is that being used now? >> it's got some applications out to protect the borders. this is a test video from lockheed martin for theirs, you can see its got a little hot spot on a boat in the harbor. they did a car test, this pick-up truck from a mile away. they pointed at it. >> a mile away? >> a mile away and it went right into it. it would make that vehicle
inoperable in a matter of seconds. >> 30 seconds, you got one more for us? >> those are both of the technologies. i got to say that it's the time right now for us to start thinking in this country, do our police officers have the kind of tools? and the rf safe stop is the most promising because it's portable, it's mobile. it's more affordable for police departments. it's time to take a closer look at that and say hey, should that be in our city? >> heig >>, hindsight is 20/20. breaking news about the attempted turkey coup, reports saying it could be affecting america's fight against isis. general michael flynn on deck with what that means. then donald trump and his vp pick, mike pence, set to make their first joint appearance since the announcement in a few hours. geraldo rivera's take on the pence pick, top of the hour.

hi friends, good morning, it's saturday, july 16th, this is a fox fox news alert. a key american ally in a state of chaos. turkey's military tries to oust its president and take control of the country as explosions and gunshots ring out in the streets. hundreds of people are dead, thousands more arrested. and we've just learned the power has been cut to an american air base. >> he may not have acted alone after all. five new arrests in the deadly truck attack in the south of france. now isis is proudly taking credit for the carnage. lieutenant general michael flynn on what this means for our war on terror. just ahead. and the suspense is over. donald trump names the indiana governor mike pence as his running mate and he's on the
defensive this morning as democrats work overtime to dig up dirt on governor pence. he's responding here on fox as well as geraldo rivera. "fox & friends," hour four starts right now. we want to get to the fox news alert now. chaos striking the heart of turkey. wow. >> rebel fighters staging a coup. bombing what appears to be the presidential palace overnight. the uprising ultimately unsuccessful. there are reports that power has been cut off at the air base in turkey. the united states uses it to launch air strikes. >> john huddy is live from istanbul with the latest. john, good morning. >> good morning to you.
the air base is in southern turkey. we're getting reports about it. but we don't really have much more concrete information. so certainly if we have anything more about that power being cut off we'll have it for you. you know you saw, we've been seeing the video, hearing the sound of the explosions of the gunfire. a lot of it happened here in istanbul. behind me, this is the bosphorus bridge. up until early this morning there were armored personnel carriers all along that bridge, that were there from the overnight, from the attempted coup overnight. driving here from saddia gupchin airport, there were still several apcs and tanks left behind that were involved in that attempted coup. as we know, 160, at least 160 people were killed, more than
1400 others wounded. and now at least 2800 people arrested. military and police personnel that were involved in the coup. now this happened overnight. it started late last night. turkish president recep tayyip erdogan, was on vacation, out of the country when the attempted coup started. the presidential palace was hit, there was an explosion there and also at the country's parliament in ankara, there was a lot of fighting, helicopter gunships opening fire on ground targets in ankara and here in istanbul. where tens of thousands of people hit the streets protesting and showing support for president erdogan. now he arrived here this morning, at ataturk airport on the european side in istanbul and said the perpetrators, those with the attempted coup would be met with the harsh penalties possible. we've also heard of a blackhawk hawk that flew to greece
carrying several turkish military commanders and some privates that were seeking asylum. they were arrested for illegal trespassing. this again as the government continues to round up those that were involved in the attempted coup. it was violent, it was intense, but it's quite a contrast as i said this morning, between last night and today. it's a beautiful day, traffic is flowing again. the bosphorus bridge was the first thing to be shut down and any airports followed. well traffic is flowing again, the airports have reopened and for now, as i've been saying, it remains quiet. but certainly there's a great deal of concern about the political instability. guys, back to you. >> thanks. incredible how it's changed so fast. such a short amount of time. >> got to tell you about this, another fox news alert, the nice terrorist may have had help. five people arrested this morning in connection with thursday's deadly attack. the terrorist's ex-wife is one of those detained. >> this as isis claims responsibility for the attack.
calling the truck driver a quote soldier of terror. the french interior minister revealing the terrorist seems to have become radicalized quickly. >> live pictures in nice, you're looking at the promenade where the terrorist mowed down and killed 84 in total. >> let's bring in retired lieutenant-general michael flynn, former director of the intelligence agency in the obama administration. nice to see you, your response overnight to the developments out of turkey, and news that we're learning this morning of the american air base having its power cut. what does it mean for the future of the united states security in the region. >> this is very complex and fluid situation as you guys have been reporting. my number one concern of the safety and security of all the americans over there. we have an awful lot of americans, not only our armed forces stationed over there. our embassy and just other
american who is may be over there, just visiting for the summer. that's my first concern. the situation, there's been big tension between the erdogan administration and his military and that's been going on for a couple of decades, we've seen other purges by him. you have this real challenge in turkey between erdogan, an islamist, and the military which is a very secular organization. so obviously it broke down in the last 24 hours. and things remain to be seen. i understand erdogan has been out and made a statement and there's going to be some, some, some second and third-order effects that are going to be paid by those in the military. i know there are some leaders that are already being rounded up. i would tell you we have to ask why and why now. i think that would be one of the questions that i would certainly be asking if i were advising the president. >> so general you spent years in
the intelligence world. reports this morning suggest the obama administration had no idea this was coming. does that surprise you? >> yeah. i mean it does. that does surprise me. we, these, these purges have gone on, i know that there's been tension, i think that we've had, i mean i have good contacts over there and there's always been tension. i think the specific timing of it is always a difficult, difficult thing to tell, but what we need to make sure of, when we have situations like this, is what will our response be. we need to walk ourselves through these types of scenarios, more and more of these types of things could happen. >> i want to get your reaction this morning, we're talking about the power being cut to that base. the reports of that in turkey. and the base is largely used by the united states for air strikes against the islamic state and this morning they're claiming responsibility for the nice attack where the maniac mowed over so many people, and killed 84.
what's your response to that with isis taking responsibility? >> not surprised at all. i wish bet that as we continue to do the forensics on this thing and i'm already aware of some connection to potentially a north african group as well as some in syria. so you know this is not surprising. there's a network inside of europe. there's a network that commands and controls these things. they go beyond inspiring and they direct picking the types of targets and the timing of these types of targets is very precise, very methodical. this is not happenstance. so it's unbelievable tragedy. this is why we have to deal with this radical islamist threat and i've just published a book on that. and to me there are ways to defeat them. we have to get serious and clearly define them first. >> i'm curious if what the president said yesterday is in your book as a matter of dealing with isis. i want to play a president's
sound bite here and get your response to see if it jibes with the way you would battle isis. >> in contrast to these terrorists who only know how to kill and destroy, we're going to win this fight by building. by never giving up on diplomacy. >> so we're going to win this fight by building and never giving up on diplomacy. is that the road to victory? >> building what and diplomacy with who? i mean -- >> it's just incredibly week. just a weak response when we need strong leadership. that's what we witnessed in that comment. so that's kind of where we are in the world today. and i just think that it's a real shame. we need to be taking a much stronger leadership role against this very vicious enemy. and that we just saw, run down mothers, fathers, children. i mean for what, a really sick
ideology. so it's really sad and what we're going to find is that more of these things will continue to happen because we are not taking this seriously enough. >> so general just a couple of hours, donald trump is set to appear for the first time with his vice presidential pick, governor pence of indiana. you were in the running for that job. pence came out a few months ago and said trump's proposed muslim ban was wrong and unconstitutional. now he's saying this. let's listen. >> i am very supportive of donald trump's call. to temporarily suspend immigration from countries where terrorists influence and impact represents a threat to the united states, what i've heard from donald trump, and i believe the position he's articulated that resonates with millions of americans, is that we've got to find out what's going on and we've got to do something different, and we've got to put the safety and security forward. >> wouldn't our first line of defense against isis be our
borders? is that a nutty thing to say, do you think? >> our first, our first -- couple things. donald trump made absolutely the right pick. i was honored to be in the running. i got a great call from donald trump a couple of nights back. basically thanking me and thanking me for the support that i have been giving him. so absolutely the right our first concern and i think that's where donald trump is at, and what you're hearing out of governor pence is that we have to be concerned about our homeland first. the safety and security of the american people should be the first concern of the president of the united states. and right now with some of the comments that we've seen out of the white house with what happened in dallas recently, with whatted on orlando, with what happened in san bernardino and what we know to be true. we should not, we should not be afraid of the enemy. but we have to make sure that we understand, we have to guarantee or try to work as hard as we can to protect the safety and
security of the american people. >> general flynn, the gop primary left the republican party extremely divided. and one of the reasons for the choice of governor pence is the hope is that it will bring the party together. governor pence was on hannity last night. more of that interview compared donald trump to ronald reagan and thinks that he's going to be able to rally everybody together at the convention. >> i believe in the collective wisdom of the american people we had a competitive primary within a enormous number of talented men and women and donald trump again and again emerged. i think very much like the 40th president, that you and i so, so admire, ronald reagan, donald trump understands the anxiety and the aspiration of the american people. like no leader since reagan and he's given voice to that. and people have rallied around him and i believe will continue to rally around him.
i expect next week at our convention you're going to see our party and leaders in our party rally around this good man who will be a great president of the united states. >> do you expect the same? >> yeah, i mean i think -- mike pence said that he was, he was a democrat, attracted by reagan and changed parties. i'm in the same boat. i've been attracted to donald trump. donald trump offers big, strategic leadership. he offers a different way to solve problems. he looks at, at decision-making in a completely different way. so i'm really, upbeat about where we are and where we're going to go, and i honestly believe that donald trump is going to win big-time this coming november. >> general michael flynn, pride of middletown, rhode island. >> there you go. >> coming up on the show, despite isis claiming responsibility for the horrific terror attack in france, being are saying it had nothing to do with islam. our next guest, a former islamic
extremist says that makes the problem even worse. ♪ trintellix (vortioxetine) is a prescription medicine for depression. trintellix may start to untangle or help improve the multiple symptoms of depression. for me, trintellix made a difference. tell your healthcare professional right away if your depression worsens, or you have unusual changes in mood, behavior or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. trintellix has not been studied in children. do not take with maois. tell your healthcare professional about your medications, including migraine, psychiatric and depression medications to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition. increased risk of bleeding or bruising may occur especially if taken with nsaid pain relievers, aspirin, or blood thinners.
listen to this, despite isis claiming responsibility for the attack in nice, are still saying it had nothing to do with islam. >> our next guest knows a lot about this subject. he says denying the nature of jihad will only make the problem worse, we're honored to be joined by a former islamic extremist. spent a long time in prison for it he's the author of a great book called "radical." and he joins us now. thanks a lot for coming on this morning. you're aware of this think you live in the uk. but here in the united states. noting the essentially religious nature of the impulses behind these attacks is dismissed as islamophobia. what do you think of that? >> it's the same, unfortunately here in many of my fellow liberal circles across europe and in brichb.
and i think there's, tucker i think there's a double standard at play here. that double standard is borne unfortunately, a bigotry of low limitations. they're being judged by a lesser standard. as if there's an expectation that we can't possibly be secular democrats, i think that's a form of bigotry and i challenge it. and it's incredibly unfortunate. it leads to the discrimination and disempowerment on the very communities my fellow liberals are purporting to want to support? >> that's such a smart play. i hope people watching at home have taped this and can replay this again and again. it's really smart. >> the president says the moderate muslim community is so important on rooting out terrorism and calling it radical islamic terror is something that will alienate that community. why do you disagree with him? >> on the contrary. think what it does, to call this islamist ideology, violent
manifestation, jihadist terrorism it allows reforming muslims within the muslim community. it allows them to engage in that conversation to address these very uncomfortable issues, that are all real and present communities. there are serious challenges between equality, rauts. a pakistani singer and actress, social media star was killed allegedly by her own brother allegedly, in a so-called honor killing. these are often justified by religion. it's ignorant to say this has nothing to do with islam. that's as unhelpful, frankly, as saying that is islam. i think the truth is in the middle. of course the blindingly obvious is to recognize that this has something to do with islam. not nothing, and not everything. we apply to historical
christianity. imagine how absurd it would sound for somebody to argue that the spanish inquisition had nothing to do with christianity or chaatholicism. it would sound absurd and the same liberals are the first to jump on christian fundamentalists when anti-abortion clinics are blown up. yet somehow that standard is abandoned when it comes to my fellow muslims. and i think the bigotry of low expectation can only lead to the disempowerment of those beleaguered reformist, muslim voices, many who exist, many pay with their lives, they need our support. if my fellow liberals are concerned about minority communities, they should be first concerned about the women, the gay muslims, those secular muslims who are struggling within their own community for their rights. >> we're grateful you came on again and we hope you come back again. thanks. >> pleasure, thank you.

welcome back, donald trump his vp pick is official. he'll be join by indiana's governor mike pence here in new york city. we have live coverage of that event at fox news channel at 11:00 a.m. eastern as the pair appears together for the first time since trump tweeted his choice. the new edition of the trump train help rally young support? here to answer that question, our millennial panelist, and fox news contributor, trent kim and
cabot phillips, nice to see all of you this morning. democrats saying that mike pence is boring and dull. ken is this going to do a lot to rally young voters? >> he's kind of got to say it i'm a lib tearial. his hawkish views and more socially conservative views i don't necessarily agree with. but those are things that people are worried about in terms of trump. the evangelicals, is trump religious? he was pro choice in the past. the choice makes sense to me personally. but i'm a libertarian. >> are you feeling the pence excitement this morning? >> i'm not feeling the pence. he was not my first choice. and the sole reason for that is i know if i were advising hillary i would leverage pence to make this a conversation about social issues, primarily. if donald trump is talking about lgbt rights and talking about abortion, he's losing, he needs to be focused on jobs, the economy and isis, anything else is a lotter.
>> we knew, cabot, that donald trump is not going to pick someone with more bravado than him or upstage him. that's why i never really bought the chris christie argument. it seems like it's a quiet, smart choice for the base. >> the fact that a lot of young people don't know about him. they'll not finding a scandal, they're finding guys who have been a strong leader, conservative governor that did good things for his state. i talked to a lot of leadership students on campuses around the country this shows donald trump's commitment to bringing on board strong conservatives. >> i wanted him to pick anthony bourdain myself. >> i think that donald trump needed help with foreign policy. >> especially after the events of this week. that's who he should have picked. >> take a look at a new poll this is our topic this morning with millennials, specifically on the hillary clinton question.
presidential preference among 18-29-year-olds. clinton had 61%. and donald trump at 25%. these new polls, a big drop for hillary clinton in the past few weeks. given everything that's going on with the email scandal and dealing with foreign policy. >> and the pokemon joke. >> millennials see right through her. i predicted she was going to say that not because i'm psychic, but because she's so predictably basic. she's trying to be millennials with the lena dunham. i'm picturing her debating donald trump and it's like stop it, you're embarrassing yourself. >> what's happening to hillary clinton? >> i think you guys remember, people my age when a lot of these clinton scandals were happening, we weren't paying attention to politics, now that donald trump is bringing these old scandals back into the forefront with the whole kroikd hillary thing. >> they're being exposed to new scandals, i think her floor is a
lot lower while trump people have their mind made up. >> the idea that bernie sanders got these folks out. these were the people that were going to come out to the polls -- are they going to stay home? >> in that same poll. gary johnson took 10% of millennials and she fell about 10% over the previous month. so it's clear that she doesn't not only does she not have moment momentum. she's in free fall with millennials. millennials have over womenly rejected her through this entire process. gender, ethnicity, she even lost african-american millennials during the primary process. >> she tried to do the same kind of strategy. she was good at it she's very bad at it. >> millennial panel. great to see you this morning. thanks so much. enjoy the rnc this week. >> in just about an hour, donald trump will make mike pence, they will join on stage together.
john roberts will be there their first appearance together as running mates, we'll check in with who is now inside the hilton hotel this morning. john is inside, he made his way inside. plus geraldo rivera is here to weigh in on donald's decision. come on in, geraldo.

what would help is simply being able to recognize a fair price. truecar has pricing data on every make and model, so all you have to do is search for the car you want, there it is. now you're an expert in less than a minute. this is truecar. hi, good morning, 32 minutes after the hour. we're just about 0 minutes away
from donald trump officially introducing his runninging mate. >> that would be indiana governor mike pence, he will join trump in new york city. >> fox news senior national correspondent john roberts has made his way inside the hilton hotel where the two will arrive shortly. good morning, john. >> good morning to you. donald trump tweeted out just about an hour ago that mike pence was his first choice of running mate. trying to dispel reports that he's waffling at the last minute. pence not the first choice of a lot of conservatives who believe he went squishy on his conservative principles when he wrote some provisions of ripra, the religious freedom restoration act. it wasn't necessarily a natural pairing because even though the donald trump campaign sought pence's support for the indiana primary, pence decided to throw his support behind ted cruz. it was one of the most lukewarm endorsements i've seen covering politics, pence on board the
trump campaign saying he is the best person to be president, particularly given the number of terrorist attacks we've seen around the world in recent months, here's pence on hannity last night. >> i think the wider world knows that america needs to be strong for the world to be safe and secure. and donald trump is going to provide the kind of broad-shouldered american leadership on the world stage that i think will make the world a more stable place. >> now over the course of their histories and obviously trump's political history is shorter than that of pence who has been in politics for 20 years, there's points of convergence, and points of divergence. corporate tax cuts, tax cuts for all americans. divergence for things like donald trump's proposed ban on muslims entering the country. mike pence called that in december, offensive and unconstitutional. he's since changed now to be more on trump's side saying with
all this terrorism we do need to look at immigration. donald trump said he would rip up the trans-pacific partnership on day one of his presidency. if he gets elected. pence was in support of that. although he does seem to have gotten the trump memo about free trade, tpp and trade deals. here he is again. >> i've always supported free trade and donald trump supports free trade as well. trade and commerce supports american jobs and -- supports growth in this country. but -- i think when we elect one of the best negotiators in the world as president of the united states, i'm open to renegotiating these trade agreements. >> donald trump expected to talk about that this morning when he introduces mike pence, as well as the situation in turkey. and hillary clinton. here's what he tweeted out a little while ago, crooked hillary has been an a disaster on foreign policy. look what's happened. an hour and a half from now we'll get all of this in the
flesh from the horse's mouth. looking forward to that. clayton? >> and tucker. >> thank you. >> john, great seeing you. fox news will have live coverage of trump and pence's event. >> we want to bring in geraldo rivera to talk about the unfolding events. boy, what a crazy weekend. >> starting with istanbul, then comey and hillary and then you know everything else that's happened. >> your thoughts from what john was talking about. >> we have the official announcement coming at 11:00 a.m. this rollout seemed kind of odd, a tweet about mike pence. >> i totally credit that he changed his mind and was vacillating until the last minute. it is in sync with what i know about the organization there. i really do believe he had second thoughts and i believe that chris christie was the person he thought instinctively to go to. i would have much preferred it
to tell you the truth. despite the fact that obviously governor christie has been damaged by bridgegate. he said he's not the unindicted c co-conspirator. the attack on nice and the istanbul airport and so forth. i thought that would have been the better choice. pence reminds me a lot of dan quayle. a nice guy, great. doesn't detract or subtract anything from trump. i don't think it gives him a single extra vote. i think kasich in ohio would have been you know in terms of pragmatic politics, a far better choice, but kasich pulled out. >> i got to say you know trump all these years. you're pretty open minded i think about trump. long skeptical of his immigration policies. i wonder if the terror attacks for last six months where you've seen people from a very specific region of the world commit
attacks from the west. have made you open your mind a little bit. >> what a great question. the short answer is no. but let me tell you. >> not letting it get in the way. >> let me explain why. i don't believe for an instance that the nice truck bombing had anything to do with immigration. unless you go back multigenerations which i don't think is very fair. trump, his irish scottish roots can go back decades to immigration issues, i don't think that immigration had anything to do with nice, immigration had nothing to do with omar mateen in orlando, florida, was barely involved in the san bernardino massacre. i don't think it's primarily an immigration issue, it's primarily a military issue, what is so frustrating to me. this is the way trump and pence should play this it's inconceivable that we have allowed isis to control the geographic entity. a country from which they can launch these diabolical attacks
or inspire these attacks. why has our military been so cautious. >> you just undercut your own argument. you said these are not people from abroad. you said these are people who grew up in the country. isis's command of territory is nothing to do with it these are the children of immigrants. >> wrong. >> they're not the kids of scottish immigrants. >> you're wrong. because -- ma teen and i would submit that the tunisian in nice inspired by and we now this morning have isis claiming credit for the nice truck driver. as long as they can arrogantly defy the world, we have established a caliphate. we have a country. we have raqqah as our capital. mosul as our subcapital. we have a treasury, you can just imagine underground they probably have conference rooms where air conditioning, they can have charts and plots and have all of their computers there. it's not like they're in a sublet in a bad neighborhood in
paris waiting for the landlord to drop a dime on them and rat them out. we have allowed them a country. trump is right. let's declare war on this country. they have a caliphate. the caliphate is geographic country. we have a country under attack by that country. the united states and our allies, france and turkey has, i'm sure we'll be discussing that. that's hobbled there other allies, the united kingdom we can call on, russia, let's get rid of isis the country. let's declare war and do that. and you will see how during the search, here's my example, i was a lot of time in iraq during the surge. '07, '08, '09. when we were putting the pressure on al qaeda, the more leaders we took out, drone strikes, we decapitated their primary leaders, their generals, their directors, the external attacks dropped dramatically.
i bet you that if we wipe out isis the country you're going to see a big diminution, there's not going to be bragging rights for these folks, they're going to know that their ideology represented is extreme and the whole world has turned against them. they've have no place to run. it takes a lot of the glamour out to make it an immigration issue is unnecessary distracting. immigration issue, people think about brick walls and mexicans. >> you'll come around. >> i think trump has to come my way and i think he will. >> you think you two can agree to disagree. >> geraldo rivera. the question is why did donald trump pick mike pence as his running mate. former trump campaign adviser barry bennett shares insight. after the attack in nice, the president says the answer is diplomacy. >> contrast to these terrorists who only know how to kill and destroy.
we're going to win this fight by building. by never giving up on diplomacy. >> is that the same tone you'll hear from the trump/pence ticket today? stuart varney has an interesting take, that's next. if you need advice for your business, legalzoom has your back. our trusted network of attorneys has provided guidance to over 100,000 people just like you. visit legalzoom today. the legal help you can count on. legalzoom. legal help is here.

? here to discuss is our old friend. the host of varney and company, fox business network. stewart varney. great to see you this morning. how should they respond? >> this will be a look at them together. i think they should respond by showing a firm, but steady hand. they should be united in their opposition to what's going on overseas. and to some of what's going on here. the overriding thing is they've got to be united, appear together. they've got to be steady but at the same time very, very firm. if they're going to accomplish that, they've done their job this morning. >> the opposite of what we've heard from the president. which is we're going to build and have diplomacy. i'm all for diplomacy do terrorists sit down at the table and talk? >> yes, where is the isis foreign minister with whom we should sit down? or the chief of staff of the isis brigades. the diplomacy does not exist in that sense. i would expect this morning to hear some strong words. from governor pence and donald trump about the need to restrict
in some way muslim immigration coming into america. because that would address the issue of terrorism overseas and bringing it here. i would expect some pretty firm statements. >> when trump first proposed that, governor pence was against it and he thought it was unconstitutional. he thought it was not an american mindset. but he was on hannity last night defending donald trump. >> he's come around on that. >> he said he now fully supports some mesh of control. >> do you believe they'll go even further and go with what newt gingrich has been saying? >> i would doubt that. newt gingrich went way out on a limb, calling for a test of muslims in america do they agree with sharia law or not? if they do, they're out. that's going a bit far. i don't think they'll go that far. but some further statement about restricting muslims coming inth cards for today. >> you can catch more of that, stuart varney is hosting the cost of freedom. coming up in 12 minutes here on
fnc. >> how good is it going to be? >> spectacular. >> huge. >> importantly the 11:00 press conference with the two of them. i think it's going to be entertainment at the very least. >> the first time. >> thanks, stu. >> why did trump pick mike pence as his running mate? will more republicans come out to support trump now that he's on the ticket? >> trump's former campaign adviser barry bennett has the answers and he's coming up next.

to pick pence? will his choice of vp bring the party together? >> former trump campaign adviser barry bennett joins us from cleveland. barry, nice to see you this morning. i don't know if you heard geraldo on the show who has known trump for 40 years, he says he thinks trump was vacillating right until the very end on his decision. do you buy that argument? >> i don't, you i don't think mr. trump has ever vacillated about anything. i don't think that's in his personality. so let me, it's almost impossible these days to separate truth from rumor in news accounts. there were an awful lot of stories saying trump was angry at pennsylvania or his camp for leaking news that he was going to be the vp early and that he was thinking about making a change up until the last minute. that's false, you think? >> i don't doubt that he was angry about the leaks. he hates leaks. but i don't think that he was rethinking the issue. you know he was very deliberative person and i've never seen him walk back a
decision. >> and do you think he's going to help to bring the party together? many said that this was a stable choice for donald trump to make bringing in someone who is socially conservative and to rally the establishment support. do you think that's going to happen this week and pence will do the trick? if the look at the part of the party that hasn't coalesced around trump, it's the conservative end. and they like pence, he's a solid christian conservative guy. middle class, midwestern grandson of a bus driver. his parents owned a gas station. he was also chairman of the subcommittee on the middle east and the foreign affairs committee. he's got a lot of experience in foreign affairs. i'm sure they're talking about nice and turkey this morning. his leadership in the house, he's been executive of a very big, successful state. he brings a lot to the ticket. i think. >> turkey and nice, we'll hear from them on these issues.
what can we expect from this announcement in new york city? i think most of the world is going to see mike pence for the first time. he's got a good personality. a solid guy, i think they're going to like him a lot. >> how about the ideological mix and mesh between these two guys. pence is very much a traditional conservative, a strong one. he's for cutting entitlements, he's for the iraq war. trump is much more of a nationalist. he's very opposed to not just the iraq war, but wars like it he's not interested in cutting entitlements. do they agree on the basic themes here? >> i hope they don't agree on everything. if two people agree on everything, one of them is not needed, right? i hope he does have some different opinions. i hope that he can, you want to debate these things out and figure out the best course of action. i hope he does bring a different set of opinions to the office. they don't agree on everything and they shouldn't. >> what about the attacks that the liberals are going to make
on him, come november saying that he alienates women, because when he was in congress he was so outspoken about defunding planned parenthood, about the religious liberty bill that many said was you know, ostracizing the lbgt community. >> i mean you can't -- you can't stop the liberals from doing silly things. look what they're up against. here in cleveland where this beautiful liquid sunshine is falling this morning. four years ago when barack obama got re-elected, there were 346,000 registered democrats in this county. it was a 73% democrat county. today as i stand here, there are only 246,000 registered democrats. it's down to 60%. though those are why the polling numbers are so close. democrat registration, the democratic capital in ohio, is dramatically changing, the only democrat party doesn't stand a chance here. >> a few seconds left. >> reporting that chris
christie, newt gingrich surprised by the announcement of mike pence, learning about it in a tweet. does that surprise you? is that the case? >> like i said, mr. trump does not like leaks, that does not entirely surprise me. >> barry bennett, joining us from cleveland, we'll see you in a few hours. >> bring umbrellas. >> we will. >> and ponchos. more "fox & friends," when we come back. americans are buying more and more of everything online. and so many businesses rely on the united states postal service to get it there. that's why we make more ecommerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. the united states postal service. priority: you
hey, we're getting ready to go to cleveland. >> we don't have a van like "the five." >> i think they have a full bus. >> we're using our legs. >> we're flying southwest airlines, but we'll be there tomorrow. we're going to see you, it's going to be exciting and historic. >> and ainsley, brian and steve will be there on the show tomorrow. >> what are you most excited for, the food? >> the fireworks. >> the republican nominee, it's going to be crazy.
>> who thought that was going to happen. >> we've seen the fences being constructed. the cordening around, the convention center. security will be tight. we'll be live with the craziness as it comes together. >> bye, everybody, can't wait to see you. this is a fox news channel special election presentation. convention countdown. now, stuart varney. >> good morning, everyone, you are looking live at sixth avenue in new york city. just a few blocks away in one hour donald trump and his vice presidential pick, indiana governor mike pence are set to appear together. this is a highly anticipated press conference. it comes as the republicans gear up for their convention in cleveland. questions remain after a coup in turkey fails.
