tv Fox and Friends First FOX News July 20, 2016 1:00am-2:01am PDT
. and unbelievable evening. today has been a very, very special day, i'll never forget it, it's something i will never ever forget. i'm so proud to be your nominee for president of the united states. >> over the top. donald trump officially become the 2016 republican nominee for president. >> and his own son donald trump jr. casting the deciding vote to secure his father's mom nation. >> it's my honor to be able to throw donald trump over the top in the delegate count tonight
with 89 delegates. congratulations, dad, we love you! >> good early morning to you. it is wednesday, july 20. you're watching fox and friends first. i'm abby huntsman. >> and i'm heather childers. the stage is set for another big night, the theme make america first again. >> just hours ago, governor chris christie was rallying some fired up trump supporters in that very same arena. but arguably the real star of the night would be donald trump jr. praising his father as the only choice for president. >> whether it's teaching his granddaughter how to swing a golf club or tackling the
toughest gonegotiations, he's always fully committed. that's why the person who would never run for office before stood on the stage 11 months ago in this very arena with 16 professional politicians and this this week that same man will stand before you as our party's nominee for the president of the united states of america. we didn't learn from mbas. we learned from people who had doctorates this common sense. it's why we're the only children of billionaires as comfortable in a caterpillar as we are in our own cars. and when we elect them, we'll have done all that. we'll have made america great again, greater than ever before. >> my father is good with advice as you might guess, but you keeps it short and the takeaway is usually the same. to help us find our own way and our own gifts. if you do what you love, hold nothing back and never let fear of failure get in the way, then
you pretty much have figured out the trump formula. >> the next time that there is a state of the union address, i don't know where joe biden or barack obama will be, but you'll find me right there on the rostrum with vice president mike pence and president donald trump. let the other party go on with more government control over every aspect of our lives, more taxes to pay, more debt to carry, more rules to follow, more judges who just make it up as they go along. they are offering a third obama temp brought to you by another clinton. we in this party offer a better way for our country. watch the democratic party convention next week. you can get through four days of it with a little help from the mute button. but four more years of it? not a chance. look, the obama years are almost over. the clinton years are way over. 2016 is the year america moves on. let's see this thing through. let's win this thing.
let's show america our best and nothing less. >> this is a nation where every coin it in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says in god we trust. so are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? >> as to hillary clinton, the charge of putting herself ahead of america, guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> let's face the facts. hillary clinton cares more about protecting her own secrets than she cared about protecting american secrets. and then she lied about it over and over and over again. she fights for the wrong people. she never fights for us. it is time to come together and
make sure that donald trump is the next president of the united stat states. >> let's bring in our political panel live from cleveland, welcome political he is it tore for townhall.com guy benson as well as republican strategist cathy lynn taylor. welcome. >> good morning. >> good morning from cleveland. >> so let's, first of all, just get your overall response. who do you think did best for the day? cathy, i'll start with you. >> well, as you said, a star was born last night, but more importantly, even a political dynasty may have been born. the trump family hit the ball out of the park and donald trump jr. was the star of the night. and he made a very strong case for the theme merg works because what he did is he showed a very strong understanding of conservative values, something that folks have been kefred
about whether trump really understands. he showed a strong understanding of conservative values and conservative policy, but he married that with a tradeoff with every day americans with lines like elevator used to be middle class and now it's not. and he made it representable and that's what republicans haven't done effectively in the past and he did a fantastic job last night. >> i can see donald trump jr. maybe running for office himself one day. and also the sense of family unity when it comes to the trump family. if you're the hillary clinton camp watching it play out last night, what would concern you most? >> i would agree that probably donald trump jr.'s speech. i thought he really did an extraordinary job. i thought it was one of the most effective arguments i've heard on behalf of the trump presidential campaign from anyone over the span of several months.
i really thought it was that good. and part of the reason was he spoke about donald trump his father in sort of an endearing personal way, but he also talked about some of the ways in which they were raised as children and then did make that pivot that i was not expecting. i was expecting almost exclusively a personal speech, but he did get into policy and politics and he made a conservative republican speech on behalf of his father. and i think for that reason the delegates in that room had wrapped attention which they did not have for most speeches frankly and they can alive during his speech. >> and interestingly in a way that was humble and relatable. >> he did get pretty strong talking about some of the policies. he good say they, meaning the democrats, gave us the worst immigration system in the world, imports inability, one that drives down employment, wages, for hispanics, african-americans, as well. and so cathy, i also want to
talk about chris christie and speaking of going on the attack. boy, did he. >> he sure did. he was the enforcer of the night for sure. and this is actually not atypical of a vice presidential speech in some respects. chris christie has been kind of the loyal enforcer to donald trump throughout this campaign. last night was no different. and what he did was clever. hillary clinton in defeating her has been a unifier for the republican party and he capitalized on that just like any great prosecutor would, point by point, dismantling ever argument she's tried to make and the crowd ate it up. >> well, someone wanting the job of attorney general. >> right. and i think there are two things that struck me about christie's speech. overall i thought it was definitely effective and got folks in the hall riled up. no question.
i'm not sure how much the lock her up champ is helpful back at home for up decided voters. and i think conflating bad foreign policy along with crimes is not particularly productive. but when it came down to the e-mail scandal, he boiled it down to the one sentence that i think crystallized it which was hillary clinton was more interested in protecting her own secrets than america's secrets and i think that is true and that is a damning indictment and he made that crystal clear and hit the nail on the head. >> we'll have to leave it there. cathy lynn taylor and guy, thanks for being with us. we'll check back with you. and we of course want to hear from everyone at home, as well. who do you think gave the best speech last night? spend us your comments on facebook, twitter. >> and things are ramping up for
day three in cleveland. the tone today, propelling america toward becoming the world's super power. >> some of the biggest names in the republican party ready to hammer hillary clinton and her allies in the white house for eight years of what they call poor leadership. >> peter doocy is live on the convention floor in cleveland with a preview looking wide awake as always. peter, good morning. >> good morning, abby and heather. third night of the rnc will bring a new theme and speech from donald trump's new running mate governor mike pence. the theme is, make america first again. and the rnc explains to us that, quote, unfortunately, years of bad policies and poor leadership have weakened our position in the world. en der a trump admin strarks america will once again be a beacon of progress and opportunity. and governor pence who is here in cleveland for the whole week while mr. trump has been coming and going is hinting at what he may discuss tonight. >> when we come together as a
party and a people, rehe elect strong conservative majorities in the house and senate and elect this good man as the 45th president of the united states, i know in my heart of hearts we will make america great again. >> reporter: this evening there will also be an appearance by newt gingrich who this time last week was thought to be a finalist for vp as well as a trio of former trump rivals that will address the crowd including marco rubio by video, wisconsin governor scott walker and texas governor ted cruz who trump used to call lying ted and still hasn't endorsed mr. trump. cruz supporters did make up a majority of the delegates who were making noise on the convention floor this week trying in vein to shout down the official in charge of advancing trump's nomination. we're also going to hear from donald trump's son eric tonight and he will be the fifth member
of the trump family to speak at this convention. back to you if in new york. >> it's a family affair. peter doocy, thank you. the time is 11 after the top of the hour and no delegate drama in cleveland as donald trump is officially crowned the republican nominee. >> and 11 votes for my friend and the next president of the united states, donald j. trump. >> we'll take you behind the scenes at the highly anticipated roll call. we're back. constipated? trust number one doctor recommended dulcolax use dulcolax tablets for gentle overnight relief suppositories for relief in minutes and stool softeners for comfortable relief
i'm honored to stand buff today in behalf of the great state of california -- >> from the blue grass state, commonwealth of kentucky, from the state that produces all the bourbon fit to drink in the world. >> florida is a paradise where you vacation, but we all live. we are the sfat thtate that gav lebron james his first two championships. >> it is official, donald trump is your republican nominee for president. >> fox and friends weekend co-host live in cleveland with a look at the historic night. anna, good morning. >> good morning, ladies and everybody at home. it's hard to match the excitement in the arena as donald trump officially went over the top winning the republican nominee nation with the traditional roll call. >> it is my it is continuing
honor and great pleasure to nominate donald j. trump for the office of president of the united states of america. >> you see it right there. chants of we want trump echos through the arena as each state cast their delegates one by one. folks eager to show off their pride like these texans in giant cowboy hats and washingtonians decked out in pine trees. but not everybody was celebrating. cheers turning to boos when new hampshire cast their vote. >> and 11 votes for my friend and the next president of the united states, donald j. trump. >> but trump didn't win all the votes. utah gave its delegates to ted cruz and ohio gave them all to their governor john kasich. but in the end, that at any time
matt didn't matter. it was trump's home state of new york represented by his own son didn't matter. it was trump's home state of new york represented by his own son giving him the delegates he needed. >> it is my honor be able to throw donald trump over the top in the delegate count tonight. congratulations, dad, we love you! >> the arena going wild as new york new york blared over the speakers, trump thanked the convention via satellite. >> watching my children put me over the top earlier, what we did getting the party's nomination, i'll never forget it. >> and donald trump will formally accept the nomination tomorrow. back to you. >> living history. you can feel it. >> i love all the hats and things matching their state. thank you. >> yeah, each state had its own personality. >> almost 20 after the hour.
the rnc focusing on boosting jobs and the economy. >> so what exactly is donald trump's plan and will it really get americans working again? here to break it all down for us, former treasury department financial analyst, morgan ortega. thank you for joining us. so take us through the main elements of donald trump's economic plan. >> well, it's interesting. i was just talking about this with someone yesterday who was just an average voteser and was asking me are we going into a recession, they were very concerned. and i said one of the most important thing about whoever the next president is the uncertainty of the economy, that business owners and ceos face. the last time the fed governor spoke, she said the word uncertainty something like 25 times in her speech to get justification for why she wasn't raising rates. so i think the most important thing that the next president
donald trump can bring to the american economy is to bring certainty back. so what does that mean? that means knowing that regulations are not going to burden ceos and mom and pop shop owners. people feel like that they can't invest, they don't know what will happen to obamacare and they don't know what will happen with the regulatory atmosphere that is just so he restrictive to business. when you look at the testimony party, you look at elizabeth warren and people like her and bernie sanders, one would almost think that they want to make it illegal to make a profit. and i think that is the main difference and contrast that we hear in the republican party are promoting business and promoting an economic environment that is conducive for people to live and thrive and work. >> and for the specific goals of his tax plan. i know people at home and we as well were able to look at his web side and specifically there were four different elements. tax relief for middle class
americans, simplify the tax code and grow the u.s. economy and don't add to the debt and defic deficit. >> a lot of people still want to hear specifically from fr donald trump on his tax plan. how much of that will he get into his speech on thursday night do you expect? >> well, i guess we'll see, but i think that you have hit the nail on the head and i hope that he does address his tax plan thursday night because there have been a lot of economists who have praised it. when you look of course, we've talked about it plenty of times on fox news, about how the corporate tax rate really is one of the highest in the world and affects our businesses. when everyone goes to file their taxes every april, you know how burdensome it is, that you have to have a specialized experts to be able to do something that should be relatively simple. so if you want to free up american businesses, if you want to free american workers, make a tax plan that is simple, effective and easy for the average worker to understand. you shouldn't have to have a master's agree to be able to do something as civil as pay your
taxes. >> and it may very welcome down to the economy like many elections before this. >> always does. people want to be working and they want to get paid for the job they to, paid well. thanks for waking up for us, morgan. >> of course. the time is about 26 after the top of the hour. and one by one, supporters of donald trump taking the stage to argue why hillary clinton would be a disaster for the economy. >> hillary clinton putting big government spending financed by the chinese ahead of good paying jobs for middle class americans. guilty or not guilty? >> because hillary clinton understands coalminers and blue collar workers about as well as she understands secure e-mails. >> is the strategy attacking clinton going to work? our political panelists on deck for a fair and balanced debate that's next.
an unbelievable evening. today has been a very, very special day. i'll never forget it. it's something i'll never ever forget. i'm so proud to be your nominee for president of the united states. >> over the top. donald trump now officially the 2016 republican nominee for president. >> and his older son donald trump jr. quickly stealing the show with a rousing speech praising his father as the only choice for president. >> i know that when my father says he can fix the country, he means it. we will not accept the current state of our country because it's too hard to change. that's not the america i know. we're going to put americans first, all americans. that president can only be my
mentor, my best friend, my father, donald trump. >> it is wednesday, july 20th, and you are watching fox and friends first oig. i'm heather which i woultther c. >> and i'm abby huntsman. >> last night it was make america work again, speakers taking direct aim at hillary clinton. >> she promised to oppose the buy american provision in the stimulus bill in exchange for the cash to finance a huge expansion of federal government spending. hillary clinton putting big government spending financed by the chinese ahead of good paying jobs for middle class americans. >> they worked tirelessly to
power america. virginia workers the backbone of this economy and hillary clinton is promising to put them out of work? >> she would continue with a system that denigrates the education of our young people, puts them in a place where they're never going to be able to get a job. >> a career washington insider who only knows how to use your tax dollars for more government jobs? >> we will put coalminers and oil drillers back to work. not target them for extinction as hillary as promised. >> she will throw every possible obstacle in the path of safe, reliable, affordable energy produced in america by americans. hillary clinton is a risk americans can't afford to take. >> will this strategy work? here for a fair and balanced
debate, ohio state senator came pre-came farrow and also david a vela, good morning to both of you from cleveland. >> good morning.farrow and also vela, good morning to both of you from cleveland. >> good morning. >> there was the most googled searched word, probably hillary clinton. i'll start with ladies first. is that strategy going to work? >> we'll see. honestly, just what you just played here this morning i believe is very similar to the traditional kind of thing you see at a political convention. people that will attack the record of hillary clinton, she walked into some of the stuff for example as it pertains to her message on coal where she said we're going to take away all the coal jobs and put the coalminers out of business. so some of the things that you played right into that talking about regulation and government intervention and entrepreneurship. these are traditional republican criticisms of democrats.
and frankly next week in philadelphia, we'll see the flip side of this coin presented by hillary clinton's allies on maybe donald trump's business record and why he may not be good for the economy. so politics as usual. >> david, did you hear enough details in it or was it too much just attacking hillary clinton? >> first let's congratulate donald trump on becoming the republican nominee yesterday. but yesterday was -- last night was good for donald trump in two ways. one, his family continues to be effective advocates in as tiffany said showing the real him and while donald jr. was equally impressive and getting more of the headline, tiffany presented an intimate and personal side from a daughter's perspective and saying she was nervous kind of endeared her to the audience to only make her points more effective and make
people want to listen to her. the other way it was a good night for donald trump is the fact that mitch mcconnell and chris christie and others had the message to say now is the time to get behind donald trump. and if donald trump starts getting 90% of the republican vote, he will be leading in the polls before the democrats have their convention finished next friday. >> but he has to get there. the reality is, capri, he still doesn't have everyone in the republican party including the bushes, governor john kasich who is governor of ohio has not been at the convention. ted cruz is not officially endorsing donald trump yet. >> but ted cruz is speaking, is he not? >> he's speaking. but not endorsed. how much of an impact has trump's family had as people are trying to make up their minds, trying to introduce donald trump to the country in a more personal way? >> i think that his children are probably his best assets. no question about that. and i saw a statistic last night
that i believe it was in a focus group that i think 11 out of the 17 people in that focus group actually were impacted by donald jr.'s speech and they changed their mind in regards to how they feel about donald trump. tiffany trump i agree did an excellent job providing a more intimate portrait of her father. and so i think when you look to what a man is about, their children is a great and i think that one of the ways he can endear himself to the swing voters if there are any out there frankly at this point, independent votes, i think his family is going to really help. >> and millennials, as well. we actually spoke earlier this evening or last night, whatever you want to call it, to the president of the young republicans organization. and she said that when you deal with donald trump's children, that it's also enabling him to access those millennial voters,
as well, a little bit more. david. >> exactly right. donald trump has a message it that should be and is attractive to millennials. he wants to get the economy going. he wants to make sure there are jobs so as they graduate high school and graduate college there is a job for them to go to and the opportunity that maybe one day they can create something that will change the world. giving workers freedom. and not only millennials, though, we heard about it a lot from dan sullivan and shelly capato, donald trump will be a president that doesn't want to kill jobs which is exactly what hillary clinton is campaigning to do in states like west virginia and ohio. capri's home state here. and why he has a chance to win ohio. >> yeah, a state that is actually doing better in terms of the economy is of course a state that governor pence is
coming from, indiana. all right. guy, thanks so much for being with us. i think we'll see you next hour. >> thank you. we asked everyone at home what do you think and who do you think is gave the best speech on day two of the rnc. >> marjorie writes the whole trump family, they are so impressive. he raised his kids right. >> and susan says trump jr. outstanding job putting the pixels in place for americans to see the picture of the man his children reflect. >> wendy simply writes governor christie with two expractice nation points. >> and always another saying dr. carson was outstanding. the time is almost 40 after the hour. donald trump jr. as we have been talking about praising his father on the world stage and changing some opinions of him
along the way. >> it brought believability to him instead of all the outrageousness. >> donald jr. is proof that donald trump has some good qualities to him somewhere. >> why our focus group says trump's children are a true refler reflr rereflection of who he is. >> who do you think elvis presley would have voted for? >> they're entertainers, so i would hope donald trump. >> and jesse watters heads to the hnc. can't wait for this one. fnc. can't wait for this one.
land. >> good morning. part of what the trump campaign started with, its message and pitch to voters is this idea that america is losing it spot in the world and much of it has to do with the obama administration. so the theme for tonight is make america first again and in partner's going to celebrate here on the third day of convention some of america's history. this is the 47th an remembers arri anniversary of the a polo moon landing, so we are see he a short video on that and also heard from colonel collins, first female commander of the u.s. space shuttle.video on tha from colonel collins, first female commander of the u.s. space shuttle. we will also hear from ted cruz and scott walker. cruz was one of the last ones to drop out. and cruz has yet to officially
endorse dufonald trump. so we'll see if that happens. and also speaking newt gingrich, his son eric trump will speak and the running mate, indiana governor mike pence, all on day three of the convention. >> another big day. governor pence who endorsed ted cruz in the primary. so interesting. >> love politics, right? >> thanks, rich. >> donald trump jr. stealing the spotlight while making the case for his father for president. >> i've seen it time and time again that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be done. for my father, impossible is just the starting point. whether it's teaching his granddaughter how to swing a golf club or tackling the toughest negotiations, he's always fully committed. that president can only be my
mentor, my best friend, my father, donald trump. >> a lot of people saying he stole the night, but did that speech have an impact on voters still unsure if they want to support donald trump? >> one focus group of undecided voters says yes. >> does this actually impact your vote what donald trump jr. said? >> because he really changes what i thinki about trump. he makes him sound like an actual human being. >> as a parent myself, i know my children are a reflection of me and i think he reflects well on his father. >> he could be my next door neighbor. these kids could be children that are going to school with my kids. they brought some believability to him instead of all this outrageousness. >> there is a certain level of humility that he exudes just coming across in person. it shows gratitude, it shows that there has been something instilled with the value system
that we should look up to as american people. >> he's shown empathy for people and the american people. >> donald jr. is proof that donald trump has some good qualities to him somewhere. >> if touchdown would act at home the way that he acts on television, his son wouldn't be the way that he is now. and i think that does show that donald trump isn't this way all the time. >> i think donald trump jr. maybe has some politics in his future. >> a lot of people are saying that. >> and it's interesting because oftentimes political consultants will say the children of the candidate are their worst nightmare, they can't control them, but oftentimes they are the best asset for a candidate because they know their parent, they can speak from the heart and i think we're seeing that with the trumps. we're seeing a whole other side of donald trump that many voters vice president seen. >> eric trump speaking today and ivanka trump will be introducing her father on the final day of the convention. so a family affair. >> we'll look forward to see what they have to say.
>> so thousands of people in the rock and roll capital for the republican convention. >> jesse watters hit up the rock & roll hall of fame to find out which rock stars would make a good president. it's watters world rnc edition. ♪ >> are you in town for the convention? >> no. >> well, well. >> do you know that there is a convention going on? >> no. >> so you're here for the republican convention? >> sure. yes. no. >> come on now. come on. >> are you a republican delegate? >> yes, i am. >> he's lying. >> are you here for the convention? >> no, for my daughter to bring her to the rock & roll hall of fame to show her what beauty is all about. >> this is pink floyd's wall up here. do you think trump built that? >> the wall just gotten feet
higher. >> what is a convention? >> an excuse to get drunk. >> very sweet, but i really don't -- >> do you have a lot of product in your hair? >> i do, a lot. >> me, too. >> we're twins. >> why do you think so many rock and roll artists lean to the left politically? >> they're free spirits. i don't know. >> probably because of the whole freedom of speech. they're artists. >> i don't think it's a natural to say musicians lean to the left. i think it's around social justice. p. >> so we're in the elvis section. we have to do this. >> absolutely. >> is trump going to make america great again? >> i hope so. >> absolutely. >> who do you think elvis presley would have voted for some>> he's an entertainer. trump is an entertainer. so i would hope trump. >> we're right behind the james brown expo say. >> godfather of soul.

nominee. actually looks like how i dance. >> is that a compliment or not? not sure. >> i don't know. i know you dance a lot better than that. so that was the first gift of the night making its way around the twitterverse. and then even california got in on the game and taking notice. this causes ktla tweeting this, someone built a wall around donald trump's star on the hollywood walk of fame. he's got his own nice little wall. >> hilarious. >> you can throw some coins in there, i guess. >> need to built it taller. >> donald trump likes you for see the star. i love some of the weird moments that unfold at these events. and did you see this? speaker ryan, we were all talking about it, because it looked like he just didn't know how to use a hammer. and he's using it upside down. so this became a meme last
night. not how gavels work, mr. speaker. >> i missed that. i'm sure he knows how to use that. >> we love to hit on people, don't we. >> of course. of course. you need those light moments in a weird four or five day convention. and last night of course dana white, used to yelling and screaming and being a little loud, on ufc president speaking and people noticing how loud he was. i don't even know if he rose to the level of rudy giuliani's loudness the other night, but people saying heyd dana white, has he never heard the term inside voice. and finally dr. ben carson. you know every speech has to be vetted right by the campaign? his speech was, but then he went off script according to the "washington post" and started talking about hillary clinton's alignment with sal olinski is
apparently a fan of lucifer? i don't know where it went. but he was basically saying he was an agent for satan. and of course then using the simps simpsons. so a fun night. >> and ben carson knows all about the inside voice because they're saying he needs to be louder. >> he was loud last night, guys. >> all right. clayton, my favorite segment of the morning. good to see you. >> nice to see you. work on the dancing. >> yeah. governor chris christie roasting hillary clinton in his speech last night. >> we cannot promote someone to commander in chief who has made the world a more dangerous place with every bad judgment she's made. >> do the voters agree? brand new dials just in overnight.
