first once again. i have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves. nobody knows the system better than me. which is why i alone can fix it. we can accomplish these great things and so much more. all we need to do is start believing in ourselves and in our country again. start believing.
it is time to show the whole world that america is back, bigger and better and stronger than ever before. this is the legacy of hillary clinton, death, destruction, terrorism and weakness, but hillary clinton's legacy does not have to be america's legacy. let's defeat her in november. the most important difference between our plan and that of our opponent is that our plan will put america first. i am asking for your support tonight so i can be your champion in the white house, and i will be your champion. i am your voice so to every parent who dreams for their
child and every child who dreams for their future, i say these words to you tonight, i am with you, i will fight for you and i will win for you. >> was it enough to win over the voters and unify the party? here to weigh in, our political panel, welcome, republican strategist kathy lynn taylor and political strategist morgan ortegus. thank you very much for sticking around with us. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> morgan, i'm going to start with you. it was almost 76 minutes long. it was the longest speech since they started taking time. >> perhaps the longest ever, for sure. >> it was huge. >> did he accomplish what he needed to accomplish in that length of time, morgan? >> it was a pretty long speech. i'll be honest with you, it
wasn't my favorite that donald trump has done. there were strong points definitely. i thought when he talked about standing by our ally israel, i was in the crowd, he got huge applause. when he talked about how the iran deal would go down in history as one of the worst negotiated deals, as one who worked in national security, i think that was a strong point for him. when he talked about how the system is rigged, how he can fix it, how he was going to fight for individual people, that's the kind of stuff that i think independent voters and disaffected democrats wanted to hear. what i felt was missing was there's a lot of talk of immigration but there wasn't any talk of some of the positive impacts of legal immigration like his wife, people like rubio and cruz's parents coming to america. i would have preferred to hear something a bit more positive instead of just the dauer stance on immigration. of course my favorite of the
night, the star of the show was his daughter. i think that she delivered a message to millennial women that spoke to me. she talked about -- she was warm, she was open. she talked about women needing to get equal pay and needing advancement opportunities, especially when they're having children. i was really happy to hear that message in primetime. i think that was important. >> that was something that i think a lot of republicans and even republicans, democrats wanted to hear from the convention. kudos to ivanka for speaking out about that. >> what stood out most to you? >> it was a big speech, a huge speech. there's a lot to unpack in it. we'll be doing it for days. i thought he achieved some very important milestones, one of which was that he certainly gave a conservative speech by any standard, but probably more importantly, it's one of the things he's been doing over the course of this campaign, this was a political speech. in saying that, he spoke to a very broad audience. he spoke to african-americans.
he spoke to women. he spoke to the lgbt community. this was an important step to get to in this process. it was an effective step. he also saved his dowerness and his criticism for contrast rather than just direct attack and he backed up the negative aspects of what's going on in our country with fact and that was important, too. but over the course of this week paul maafort and the rnc team, reince priebus and others have built a very effective case along with the trump children that this man, their father and this politician now is someone who will fight for you, who is -- could be a father of america just like he's been a great father to them. he's results driven. brings out the best around them. brings out the best in people around him and i think that that's something that he took into the speech last night. i will fight for you. he said hillary clinton wants
you to chant i'm with her. i want to chant, i'm with you. >> kathy, one of the other things that he also specifically mentioned, one of those bernie sanders followers trying to pull them over, morgan, any predictions for the dnc and what we can expect? of course, bernie sanders will be there. >> well, bernie sanders is going to be there, elizabeth warren is going to be there. i think we can anticipate that the dnc is going to take a hard left turn outside of the mainstream media. it's been reported we may figure out who hillary clinton's vp is going to be today. tim kaine has been wildly criticized by leftist activists that he's being too soft on banks because he signed a letter saying he wanted to ease some restrictions. so there's nothing the democratic party won't go after as it relates to banks, anybody making a profit or having a business in this country.
i think tim kaine would be a smart choice. he would be in the similar vein as mike pence is kaine would be to hillary. let's see what happens. i anticipate that the party is going to take a hard left turn next week. >> we're going to learn maybe even today. kathy lynn taylor, morgan ortegus. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> the time now is about seven minutes after the top of the hour, and make america safe again. donald trump promising to bring respect back to our police and our veterans. our next guest, a former democrat says that he is the perfect person to do just that. >> with fox, how are you? >> i'm good. how are you. >> hillary has a problem with the truth. do you think that's going to be an issue for you guys? >> and that is debbie wasserman schultz refusing to answer
jesse's question. you don't want to miss waters world next at the rnc. and with this standard of luxury... it's an oasis. introducing the completely redesigned e-class. it's everything you need it to be... and more. see your authorized dealer for exceptional offers through mercedes-benz financial services. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing.
my father and our next president, donald j. trump. >> well co >> welcome back. that was ivanka trump. as hillary clinton prepares to announce her running mate, possibly as soon as today. peter doocy joins us live from cleveland with the very latest. big final night for the rnc, peter. >> good morning. >> good morning, heather and abby. donald trump spent most of last night trying to contrast himself with hillary clinton so he told this very enthusiastic crowd in cleveland during the longest acceptance speech in decades that he can fix america's worst problems by himself.
the oath of office next year, i will restore law and order to our country. i will work with and appoint the best and brightest prosecutors and law enforcement officials. i am the law and order candidate. >> donald trump picked his daughter ivanka to introduce him. she explained why he is so tolerant. >> he is color blind and gender neutral. this is the fighter, the doerr that you have chosen as your nominee. >> hillary clinton's campaign meanwhile tweeted a graphic that said, quote, the only thing standing between donald trump and the white house is us and with her convention set to kick off the beginning of the week, mrs. clinton is narrowing down potential running mates.
sources tell fox news that her finalists are virginia senator tim kaine, agriculture secretary tomville sec and new jersey senator cory booker. her decision could come as soon as today. she hasn't made any phone calls to tell kaine, vilsack or booker that they are going to be the running mate. >> could you imagine your whole life could change in that moment. >> yes, absolutely. >> thank you, peter. >> thanks, peter. >> these are the forgotten men and women of our country, and they are forgotten, but they're not going to be forgotten long. these are people who work hard but no longer have a voice. i am your voice.
>> donald trump says that he will speak for those who have been ignored, neglected and abandoned. >> that message resonates with our next guest, tom coyne, the mayor of brook park, ohio. he is now voting for donald trump so what is the swing state that we know is so important. what are they looking for? >> mayor coyne, thank you very much for joining us this morning very early. >> very early but thank you for having me here. i think what he did was once again last night speak to the very people he said who have been forgotten, the working people of this country. i think he balanced his insurgency with making those folks in the republican establishment at least comfortable with him as a candidate. as he always says, it was huge, it was huge for cleveland and i think for our city that we showed we could put on a show, the greatest show with donald trump and people were safe and secure. i'm very proud of the performance of chief williams
and our police department. >> he made the point that he's going to get millions of democrats who come to his side. many of which are bernie sanders supporters. he has to get some wins in the swing states. >> right. this is reminiscent of the reagan democrats when ronald regan ran. in brook park, ohio, we lost the largest foundry when ford moved to mexico. this story telling is reality who said government will not work. what he did last night, our only worry was he may try to have been too politically correct. when he showed he wasn't, he kept his excitement, kept on task and i think he told america he'll be the president of everyone. since the kennedy children, american has fallen in love with the trump children. you look at a billionaire's kid who you think would be spoiled and insensitive. what a magnificent family.
america's looking for a family like that. i think all of his children just stole the show. >> definitely family first with him. you are the mayor of brook park, ohio, as we just mentioned. >> correct. >> your state's governor did not show up. do you have any thoughts on that? should he have shown up this week? >> i do. it's disappointing. i think john kasich clearly would have been the best vice president for donald trump. it's disappointing. big event for cleveland. big event for ohio. as donald trump said we have to put aside all of our differences and move forward. you'll see a coalition of democrats and independents. governor kasich down the line will be most hospitable because he was the last person to balance a budget. >> the last 28 of 30 elections
have gone to the person who took ohio. >> what about a prediction? is he going to win ohio? >> i believe he will win ohio. i believe that he will win our working states in the
center of the country, i'm confident of that. >> we'll leave it there. mayor tom coyne, thank you for being with us so early. >> thank you. 17 minutes after the hour. rallying the crowd and taking direct aim. >> if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully crafted lies and the media myths, the democrats are holding their convention next week. go there. >> what do voters think about trump's message to democrats. brand-new dials just in.
20 minutes now after the hour. after three days of speeches, trump finally took the floor to accept his nomination. did his message resonate? >> pollster leigh is here and she puts some of the biggest moments to the dial test. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. >> always exciting to see what you bring to us and first up ivanka talking about equal rights. listen. >> at my father's company there are more female than male executives. women are paid equally for the work that we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported not shut out. >> so what about the grade here?
explain that. >> so the republicans gave it an a, independents a b and democrats a c. here's the thing, what ivanka was able to do and bring to the table, she was able to be an advocate for what donald trump did for women. i think it turned things on its head. she was incredibly well spoken. the way she explained how people are supported rather than turned away. the statistics are really powerful, competency compelling, and i do think it's important to look at the democrats. while i was only a c that is something we haven't seen in a while. democrats the whole night it didn't go that well. i think that's really, really saying a lot. >> i thought that was one of the negative. it was just a c. as you point out -- >> i don't know how talking about women equality you can get anything but a. kudos to ivanka trump. >> trump got to a lot of things. the main theme was we cannot afford
to be politically correct.
>> we cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore. so if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully crafted lies, and the media myths, the democrats are holding their convention next week. go there. >> so some
mixed results on this one. >> there were. republicans, again, gave this an a, independents a b. moments where democrats gave it a c, sometimes a little bit less. what's important is that idea of political correctness that donald trump has tapped into is something that donald trump has tapped into. know want to be able to say what's on their mind. so i think he's tapped into something here. >> trump says that he is the law and order candidate. >> has he said that? >> once or twice. here's one of those instances.
>> i have a message to every last person threatening the peace for our streets and the safety of our police. when i take the oath of office next year i will restore law and order to our country. believe me. believe me. i will work with and appoint the best and brightest prosecutors and law enforcement officials to get the job properly done. in this race for the white house, i am the law and order candidate. >> obviously this is a huge issue of late and republicans off the chart, leigh. >> off the charts. this was an a plus moment for donald trump on the republican side. he had to have a plus moments
with the republican party. this is about bringing republicans together. independents really responded well to the thinking but it's important, a lot of the stories and take aways i've heard in other media was this wasn't a fear-mongering speech. what voters told me was this was not a fear-mongering speech. in fact, he was reassuring people because people already are afraid. he was saying, i'm going to make america safe again. it was something that resonated with them. it was scary and -- >> not fear-mongering when he is talking about things that are happening. >> he wanted to make it clear he was protecting all-americans, including the lgbtq community. listen to this part. >> as your president i will do everything in my power to protect our lgbtq citizens from
the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology. believe me. and i have to say as a republican it is so nice to hear you cheering for what i just said. thank you. >> surprisingly not everyone loved that moment. >> not everybody liked that moment. some people were taken off guard. republicans gave it a b plus, independents a c plus and democrats a d. i was surprised by the democrats there. i thought this was something they would have responded to. i think there's some level of cynicism. what i heard from folks is it could be donald trump is redefining a position for the republican party and it resonated with folks once i thought about it. it is a big step for the republican nominee to come out with that message. >> could be huge for the next generation for sure. >> lee carter, thank you very
much. >> the time is 26 minutes after the top of the hour. donald trump on the world stage promising to fix america. >> nobody knows the system better than me, which is why i alone can fix it. >> did he send the right message? our political panel on deck for a fair and balanced debate when our live coverage continues next.
i humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the united states. >> there you have it. it is friday, july 22nd. the grand finale for the grand old party. the republican national convention now in the books. >> donald trump formally accepting the republican nomination for president.
>> the balloons finally dropped. good morning to you. you're watching "fox & friends first" on this friday morning. i'm abby huntsman. >> we need some balloons in here to celebrate the end of the week. donald trump, of course, vowing to fix america fast as the law and order candidate as he takes direct aim at hillary clinton. >> in this race for the white house i am the law and order candidate. i know the time for action has come. the american people whether come first once again. i have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer on people who cannot defend themselves. nobody knows the system better than me.
which is why i alone can fix it. we can accomplish these great things and so much more. all we need to do is start believing in ourselves and in our country again. start believing. it is time to show the whole world that america is back bigger and better and stronger than ever before. this is the legacy of hillary clinton, death, destruction, terrorism and weakness but hillary clinton's legacy does not have to be america's legacy. let's defeat her in november.
the most important difference between our plan and that of our opponent is that our plan will put america first. i am asking for your support tonight so that i can be your champion in the white house and i will be your champion. i am your voice so to every parent who dreams for their child and every child who dreams for their future, i say these words to you tonight. i am with you. i will fight for you, and i will win for you. >> did his speech send the right message? >> here to debate, conservative radio talk show host dr. gina
loudon and ceo of all in together, lauren chevay. thanks for being with us. >> good morning. >> our pleasure. >> lauren, one of the longest speeches in convention history. i think almost 76 minutes in all. >> 76. >> a lot of undecided voters watching this hoping that they could -- it could help make their decision. what do you think the strongest moments were for donald trump last night. >> you know, actually, i think the strongest moment for donald trump last night was ivanka. i think she was a strong surrogate, articulate, warm, thoughtful and painted the picture that was very good. the tone was very dramatically different. i was joking and tweeting ivanka for president. i think she set herself up for a long and illustrious career. >> you and a lot of people. >> a lot of people would agree with that. ivanka called her father the
people's nominee and then when donald trump was speaking he said that, you know, he is there for those people who are forgotten, the forgotten men and women. gina, what do you think about his speech? >> i thought it was excellent. i think it's so good that he pointed out how he really is, you know, while hillary clinton's message is always going to be all about victimization and identity politics and the whole poor me thing, donald trump spelled out tonight that his -- his message to the american people is that he is for me. he wants us all to be as rich as he is. that's a great message especially when you contrast it with the democrats continued and tired old message of we're going to spend more money when we've already doubled the debt, right, to $19 trillion. we're going to do all the same tired policies that haven't worked in the past, haven't brought anybody out of poverty, haven't improved our educational status and haven't really helped anybody. there's no accomplishment
hillary can talk about and say that she's actually done. you have donald trump who has created so many jobs and wants to do the same thing for our country. >> lauren, i've heard from a lot of people who say i like what donald trump has to say, i just don't know how he's going to get there. i'm waiting for specifics from him? did he give you those specifics. >> there were a bunch of points that we talked about. we spent unprecedented resources on law and order since 9/11. trillions of dollars pumped into the system. it's hard to understand what else are we proposing. of course, the presidency doesn't control the police and state and local municipalities. i think certainly i'd like to understand more about his economic proposals which are still pretty vague. certainly i appreciate that he called out support for the lgbtq community.
he chose mike pence as his running mate. big convention speeches are short on details and long on vision. that was what he was there to do. the next few months he's going to have to explain these things. i think for undecided voters if with no one else. >> i think if he doesn't want to win over undecideds, i think that's going to be a hard road for him to climb. >> yeah. >> i met a lot of bernie supporters at the convention this week. a lot of former bernie supporters were here today all happy supporting donald trump. so i think he is resonating with independent voters. let's not forget -- and let's not forget that he got more primary voters than any other candidate in history and way
more than the democrats had this time around. i think that this will end up well for him. >> primary demographics are not the same as general election demographics. that's why i think it's -- the demographics of the country have skewed the demographics in the states. he has to win more than his fair share. he has to win independents and he has a big job to do there. >> that's definitely true. not just share numbers, republicans and delegates share. and by the way, millennials, the challenge is going to be, a shout out to millennial voters who are undecided, they understand that's critical. the challenges are that millennials are the worst in history and are rmt inclusive.
>> right. you're definitely right. >> that means a whole new race from here as we enter the general election. moving forward. >> gina, lauren, thanks for being with us. almost 20 minutes now to the top of the hour. trying to steal trump's thunder. hillary clinton expected to announce her bp pick later today. our next guest breaks down a list of contenders and what they would bring to the ticket. get back to great. now get a swiss gear backpack for only $10. office depot officemax. gear up for school. gear up for great.
perfect driving record. perfect. no tickets, no accidents... that is until one of you clips a food truck ruining your perfect record. yeah. now you would think your insurance company would cut you some slack, right? no, your insurance rates go through the roof. your perfect record doesn't get you anything. anything.
perfect. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance. . . before i had the shooting, burning of diabetic nerve pain, these feet were the first in my family to graduate from college and trained as a nurse. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression,
or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. ask your doctor about lyrica. welcome back. it is a veep sticks guessing game as hillary clinton gets ready to announce herpich. we have tim kaine and secretary of agriculture, tom vilsack. >> with the decision expected as early as today, will hurt or help donald trump's campaign.
thanks for staying with us all night and all morning. >> happy to be here. >> all right. so what's going to be the deciding factor for hillary clinton? because you look at these top three names, it could go any direction at this point. >> they could. and i think what's really interesting that the bench with democrats is so deep. that's what's also i think exciting for her in making this selection. all three of them would be very, very difficult and i say three because i think cory booker is also being talked about as still being on the list. they would all make it a very difficult election for donald trump. whether it's secretary vilsack or senator kaine, they both, i think, would appeal to rural voters, this he would appeal to white men and hillary clinton has had trouble with them both in the primary and democratic campaigns haven't fared well for them. i think tim kaine, vilsack, cory
booker can be the attack dog like chris christie has been. something about those new jersey boys. none of the disastrous rollout has been happening. they've been very good at keeping it quiet and find being the right person. i think she's looking for a person that she will have a very good relationship with and she can trust. >> speaking of attack dogs, she already has one of those in elizabeth warren. so she has mentioned that one of the things that she's looking at when it comes to picking her vice presidential candidate, that would be foreign policy. so which of those names do you think would be best in that area. >> i think senator kaine has the highest marks when it comes to foreign policy and the work that he's done in the senate, but secretary vilsack has traveled to many countries since he
became secretary of agriculture. i think it was maybe one of the weaker areas for him when he ran for president a few months in 2008, but he really has spent time traveling internationally and was on a sunday talk show within the last week, really showing up that he could talk foreign policy. so, again, this bench is deep, it is qualified, it is focused. the campaign has been very, very, you know, disciplined with the selection process. >> yeah. this also comes after mike pence was chosen governor of indiana. jehmu green, thank you, we will know soon. >> thank you, jehmu. >> let's check in with ainsley earhardt. from what i understand you will talk about the infamous focus group. >> hey, abby.
hello, heather. we are here. it's our last day at the rnc. it's been quite a week. we're going to talk about donald trump's speech and ivanka's speech. we're going to analyze the speeches and ask the people what they thought about it. frank luntz talked to the focus group and some said they're changing their minds. that was the best speech by a presidential candidate i've ever heard. >> bernie sanders. >> donald trump, i feel patriotism, i feel completely safe. >> you were never trump? >> i was never trump. hillary clinton is damaged goods. >> also, ladies, we're going to be talking about ivanka trump's attire. she owns her own company. that dress is one of her designs. we're going to tell you how much it was. it's pretty affordable. it's something that the three of us will be able to buy. we'll talk about that. >> now i'm in. now i can't wait to watch. beautiful.
>> i was also wondering about her shoes because she's got a fantastic lain of shoine of sho. i like what she was wearing. >> i did, too. >> the quality, too, she did a fabulous job. we'll see you soon. >> thanks, abby. thanks. heather. >> stick around with us. we will be right back. it's here, but it's going by fast. the opportunity of the year is back: the mercedes-benz summer event. get to your dealer today for incredible once-a-season offers, and start firing up those grilles. lease the c300 for $379 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing.

>> hillary has a problem with the truth, do you think that's going to be an issue for you -- >> i'll take that as a yes. >> does my life matter. >> all lives matter. >> you can't say that. >> all lives matter. >> you can't say that. >> all lives matter, even police's lives matter. >> look at what he's saying, make america great again. great again like when, the yen side all of the indig us now people that lived here. >> i think he's talking about the '80s. >> i'm so perfect. everybody loves me so much. >> what do you want to replace capitalism with? >> socialism. >> where did socialism ever work. >> look at cuba right now. >> debbie, jesse, just a quick question for you.
