fire while trying to burn out a building. watch out below. goofy breaking his fall. >> it looks like they were doing it on purpose. >> yeah. >> thanks for joining us today. have a great tuesday. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. good morning to you and your family. it is tuesday, august 9th. donald trump outlines his economic plans to make america work again. >> these reforms will offer the biggest tax revolution since the reagan tax reform. we will make america grow again. >> what does it mean for you and your family? we're going to analyze this? >> yes. the families of benghazi victims now suing hillary clinton saying she was directly responsible for their deaths, but will it hold up in court?
we're going to talk about that. then the pool just got heated. michael phelps giving his rival an epic death stare in rio ahead of the semifinal and the internet, well, it can't stop looking. i will stare at you all morning long. mornings better with friends. you're all wet. >> well, you know, ainsley, every morning the guys on the show kind of spin the neck tie roulette wheel, today once again pete and i picked the yellow tie with the blue stripes. >> you did not plan this at all? you don't coordinate? >> i was hoping he would wear that today. >> synchronized swimming, not synchronized dressing. >> we're still ahead. the u.s.a. is still ahead. winning all those golds. >> meanwhile, let's talk about politics. white house. donald trump rolling out what he calls a tax revolution, but hillary clinton is already slamming his ideas as old and
tired. >> fox news senior national correspondent john roberts is live from wilmington, north carolina, where donald trump campaigns today. hey, john. >> reporter: there's a lot of old and tired going on here, ainsley. good morning to you. beginning with me. good morning from the university of north carolina, wilmington, where donald trump will be a little bit later on today. yesterday reaching out to working class folks, the same group of people saying the same stuff -- not the same people, the same stuff that helped get ronald regan elected back in 1980 pushing his economic plan for job creation, lowering taxes, he'd lower the corporate tax from 15% to 35 and create three new tax brackets for individuals, 12, 25, and 33%. that's different than what he proposed originally, he wanted 10, 20, 25. this new plan tracks along with what the republican party has been pushing. he slammed hillary clinton for wanting to pursue the same type
of economic policies that have led to anemic job growth. listen. >> she supports the high taxes and radical regulations that force jobs out of your community and the crime policies have made you far, far less safe and the immigration policies that have strained local budgets. >> took hillary clinton about 3.5 seconds to jump all over that accusing donald trump of putting out warmed over republican ideas that never worked in the past. also, making fun of his economic team. here she is. >> you've got three wall street money managers, an oil baron, a former chief economist at one of the big banks at the heart of the financial crisis. you've got six men named steve. and, you know, they all care about the same thing he does about, you know, how to avoid paying their fair share. >> that reference to six guys
named steve such as steve ross, steve minutia and steve miller. he's his chief economic policy and main speech writer. we also should point out that in addition to having six guys named steve, he also has three guys on his team named miller. sometimes keeping these people straight is a little difficult at 6:00 in the morning. >> it's miller time. >> that's right. >> john, i noticed how you mentioned the steve miller song, big old jet airliner, probably because you got caught in the delta web yesterday. >> oh, no. you couldn't go home to see those babies. >> reporter: you know, they told me an hour before i left to go to the airport, that the flight was on time. while i was on my way to the airport, they told me it was delayed. they finally canceled that flight 3:00 this morning after i had already jumped in a car and driven seven hours.
>> at least you tried. your wife can't be too upset. you tried. >> i spent some time with her on her birthday. >> oh, good. >> reporter: very nice. >> so john has set the table perfectly. what exactly would donald trump's tax plan mean for you? well this yesterday at the trade economic club, he mentioned this. there would be three tax brackets, a 12%, 25 and 33. that is a little different than last year when he said the top bracket would be 25. nonetheless, three brackets making things simpler. >> if you're in that top bracket which used to be 39 or is currently 39.5, then you would now be in that other bracket, 33, so it would save you some money. >> you get to fully deduct -- a lot of people talking about the full deduction of child care expense. >> for you and me. >> for young working families that can be a massive expense. renegotiate nafta, moratorium on federal regulations, ending the
death tax. >> growing up in kansas, so many families, you know, they work their whole lives to get a family farm. then when, you know, somebody dies they wind up paying a death tax. that's why rick perry likes trump's plan a lot. listen. >> all of that money that's off shore will flood back in here when you put a tax policy into place that is not as you call it. you're absolutely correct with that. this is -- this is a beautiful song for the people that want to create jobs in this country. >> speaking of creating jobs, it's a great plan for small business owners, too, because corporate tax right now is 35% and he wants to drop it to 15% keeping big corporations. >> the small ones can't navigate the regulations. that's why a 35 to 15 rate is so
important. simplify, deregulate. >> you're a business owner, you're not here to fund the federal government, you're here to make money for you and your employees. >> jobs. >> that's why many of them go overseas. he's saying i want to keep companies here. >> right. >> we're going to make america great again. >> for those companies that took a whole bunch of dough over seas, that's probably close to $2 trillion over there, if they could repay the try eight it, i think he said yesterday that wouldn't be a 10% tax. here's the thing, when you add up all of his proposals it looks like there would be a short fall of $3 trillion over ten years. where is that money going to come from? well, according to "the wall street journal", the revenue loss over the ten years the feds would take in $40 trillion in revenue and faster growth would make up some of the $3 trillion.
these are some details we'd like to talk to mr. trump about. in about 80 minutes he'll be here to talk to us. we'll have what he detailed yesterday in detroit and the second segment all about questions for you. if you have a question for donald trump. e-mail us, facebook us or tweet us. >> steve, for the record, i like guys named steve. >> thank you very much, but six guys named steve? >> thank you very much. did you hear about this, the families of shawn smith and tyrone woods, two of the individuals that were killed in benghazi, there are their pictures, they have actually filed a lawsuit. this happened yesterday, against hillary clinton for her reckless handling of classified information because they think it contributed to their death. >> that's right. inside the lawsuit they're quoted as saying the deaths of shawn smith and tyron woods were
caused by the negligent actions of defendant clinton. here's the problem. i don't know if you can sue a public official for doing their job. however, they also allege that hillary clinton defamed them. remember, she essentially said they were liars. >> that they were liars. >> there could be something to that. >> what he means is in that chris wallace interview she said she never told them -- told the families at their funeral that their sons died because of that video and all of them emphatically said that's not true. meanwhile, our big story yesterday was the execution of that iranian scientist. yesterday at the department of states the report -- there he is right there. he was executed on wednesday. his name showed up in a couple
of unsecured e-mails in hillary clinton's basement in chappaqua. is there a connection with his death and her e-mail? here's what she said. >> we're not going to comment on what may have led to this event, but as we spoke about with matt, you know, there was public reporting on this topic back in 2010. former secretary clinton discussed this issue in public at that time so this is not something that became public from these e-mails. >> so they dodged the question. >> that's right. there was public comment at the time. i believe we have some sound of what hillary clinton said. oh, we don't? what she said in 2010 is he's free to go, he's free to come, those decisions are his to make. basically saying if he's with the iranians, he can go back to
iran. in the e-mails you hear coded language to our friends and other things he had done to benefit the united states. >> the reason these stories connect is many people are asking does this individual, did he die because someone hacked into her e-mails and they found out that he was spying for the u.s. and as a result he was killed. >> no. >> we don't know that. but many people are wondering that. many families in benghazi are wondering if their son was traveled. >> at the very least it under scores her recklessness. it is 6:11 on this tuesday. heather joins us this morning for the news. >> she got the yellow memo. >> yes, i have the yellow on like your ties. good morning to all of you. ainsley, good morning to you. a nightmare at the fair. three children falling 50 feet out of a ferris wheel. the terrifying moments playing out at a county fair in greeneville, tennessee. >> we've had a major incident at
the fair grounds at the ferris wheel. there's been at least three fall out of the ferris wheel. one unresponsive. >> i've got three kids that have fell from the ferris wheel, three kids. >> think of how many times we go on to those ferriss wheels with our kids. witnesses say the basket got tipped. it spelled them out like water. all three got rushed to the hospital by helicopter. the fair is set to reopen today but the rides will be closed. brand-new details about the water park tragedy in kansas. investigators say that it was a neck injury that killed 10-year-old caleb schwab on the world's tallest slide. that slide was never inspected by the state because it's not required by law. a fox news alert right now, a manhunt intensifying at the moment for the killer of a young worker.

clinton's first term. in other words, she was all talk, no action. upstate new york a disaster. >> donald trump yesterday in detroit hitting hillary clinton over her promises as a u.s. senator to bring 200,000 jobs to upstate new york. "washington post" investigation finds her efforts fell flat then, so how will she create jobs if she were elected president? former lieutenant governor of the great state of new york, betsy mccoy. good morning. >> good morning. i remember those days. >> you were there. >> i was there. >> a tv ad. >> that's right. just before the election she ran a tv ad pledging to bring 200,000 jobs to upstate new york, an area beleaguered by the loss of manufacturing jobs. >> right. she's been running on her record as a senator. ultimately manufacturing jobs went down 25%. >> in fact, the over all job
market just languished during her eight years in the senate. you're right, manufacturing jobs plummeted an additional 24%. it's a grim reminder of what a hillary clinton presidency would mean to the nation. >> i know you're going to be looking at what kind of a president she would be economically given what she'll be talking about the day after tomorrow as compared to donald trump. >> that's right. she is presenting her fair growth plan on thursday, and there's no private sector growth in that fair growth plan, none whatsoever. >> it's all tax stuff. >> it's tax hikes on businesses. >> right. >> and reams of new regulations, on overtime pay, what types of investments to make, far sighted investments according to hillary clinton. so uncle sam will be in every
board room looking over every manager's shoulder. this should send fear into the hearts of business owners and managers. >> real briefly. you listened to donald trump's plan yesterday and what did you think of that? >> i thought it was excellent. he laid out plans for tax cuts, regulatory relief, unleashing regulatory reduction and the number one line in his speech was he pledges that no business will pay more than 15% of their income in taxes. that's what we need the most. >> that's what a lot of experts say. former lieutenant governor, thank you. just when you thought the story was over, he's back and gearing up for a legal battle. we're going to tell you that. before you pack your kids' lunches this morning, we're going to tell you that some of your kids' favorite foods might be fueling your hunger. we have a live report with what

a quick look at headlines starting with a fox news alert. isis targeting the miss universe pageant on a secret social media page. an islamist terrorist encourages everyone who can to launch attacks at the january event in the philippines. the post also offering a video on how to make a suicide belt and other explosives. and the family of the so-called clock boy has filed a federal lawsuit claiming his civil rights were violated. the 14-year-old was arrested at his texas high school last year
after he brought a suitcase packed with wires to school that clearly looked like a bomb. he claims it was a clock. his family has since moved to qatar but he spent the summer in the u.s. because it turns out the u.s. is not such a bad place. ainsley, i smell pizza. >> yes, it is so good, isn't it? even cold pizza. do you feel like you're running on empty? it turns out some of your favorite foods might be fueling your hunger instead of filling you up. what foods should you avoid? dr. david somati is here to break it down. >> good morning. >> we are all drooling in here. we are all looking at the pizza and french fries. i can hear pete clapping. these are foods you say to avoid. >> it's unfortunate. some of us are eating this kind of food all the time and we're all guilty of it. >> these are foods you eat and they make you hungrier. >> they actually make you crave more. the reason is the hormones in
your brain. when you talk about white bread, for example, there are no fibers. the bran is gone and studies show if you take a lot of these, two or three portions of this, it creates the chance of over weight by 40%. if you have to take any bread, make sure you have bran. whole grain, you want your sugar to last and stay steady. you don't want any jumps, you know, spikes and then crashes. >> right. right. >> fruit juices? >> same thing. when you drink this juice, i drink it all the time -- >> i was surprised by this. >> this is a spinach drink. >> exactly. the issue is you want to make sure you have the fibers there. when you drink it you get tons of sugar, your insulin crashes and you star of again and you crave it. >> hungry again. what about salt at this food? >> all of this salty food, especially fast food, when you eat them you don't get the satisfaction. you're happy for a minute but then all the trans fat inhibits your dopamine and serotonin.
those are neurotransmitters. >> same with beer. it's hard to cut out. >> a little bit of wine and beer is fine, but this stuff really lowers your lectin, makes you crave more. a lot of alcohol makes you eat more. >> now pasta, everyone thinks pasta, filling. >> it is filling. for a short period. >> an hour. >> all of them are basically spiking your sugar in your body very quick and it washes out. your brain says, hey, i need more sugar. >> when you say pasta, avoid white pasta. >> sushi, i always eat. unfortunately it's all around them. same concept. get rid of -- >> most americans do. >> if you put all of this together, that's your pizza. you have salt, you have cheese, you have again the same kind of carb. once in a while it's okay. don't eat too much of it. have you noticed how you get hungry after a slice or two?
>> that's why i have another one. that's why i have the whole pizza. >> you're still staying thin. >> i do it occasionally. thank you so much. he did say eat oatmeal. oatmeal is filling. >> oatmeal for breakfast, salmon for lunch and not much for dinner. this arsonist's plan backfired on him big time. i bet he didn't expect to catch himself on fire. we're going to talk about that. then donald trump details his economic plan. he says he can make america great again but how much money will it put-back in your wallet? well, we brought back our business table. they're right there to analyze it. ♪ ♪

we will work with house republicans on this plan using the same brackets they have proposed. 12%, 25%, and 33%. these reforms will offer the biggest tax revolution since the reagan tax reform. >> that's donald trump yesterday revealing his official economic plan. he says -- that he says will make america great and make america grow again. what does it mean for you? here to break it all down, back by popular demand. our fox business panel, host of making money, charles payne. co-host nicole petilini and a trump fundraiser and donor, andy scaramucci. nicole, we were just chatting about the speech. give me your initial thoughts and reactions. >> when i was watching the speech we heard a lot of what we anticipated. tax cuts, child care benefits and repatriation.
something that hit and resonated, the people who like trump like trump and then there's everybody else. he started off that speech saying, i want to help those with the very least. and the question is, are those with the very least listening? are they understanding 100% how trump's plan can help them? and there are several ways when you break down the plan how it will help them including the child care deduction. the senior economic advisor was on o'reilly factor last night. it's for everybody. child care is such an expensive cost for people. >> sure. >> small businesses, cutting those rates for the small businesses. they'll be able to create more, grow more, do more jobs for america. those are two examples of how it will help everybody. they'll have their own tax cuts, too. >> anthony, hillary clinton comes out and says this is more trickle down economics. what's your description of the entire package? >> i would take five guys named steve over one person named hillary to run the economy.
>> at the end of the day he has a entrepreneurial expressway going. he's going to create jobs, fortify growth, empower the middle class. that sort of stuff he was talking about yesterday, peter, is visionary. it will give people a lot of economic confidence and get them out there spending again. >> you've raised money for trump. do people on wall street like this? that's another thing. >> listen, i think wall street quietly likes donald trump. they don't like some of the rhetoric that he's had against wall street, but at the end of the day they were going to say, my god, we're going to grow tremendously. it's just that they're so plugged into the clinton, quote, unquote, rigged system. >> sure. >> that they're having a hard time going public on trump. >> when you look at what he rolled out, is there anything you got wrong? anything that could have gone further? anything that was missed? >> i would have completely removed the repatriation tax. we wonder why there's 2 to $5 trillion off shore.
get rid of it. i think there's too much emphasis on infrastructure. it can be gimmicky. spain did the same thing before. they ended up with 20 airports they never used. in fact, one of the airports paid $120 million a year to keep birds off the runway when a plane never landed. wall street is concerned about the trade stuff. we heard about that last night. i tell people, we can win a trade war. understand, if we ever went into a full blown one it would be very, very painful. so we want to force the better -- we've got the strongest hands. we haven't played the strongest hand. we've got the strongest hands. i would have gone to get rid of the repatriation tax. >> what's the bottom line for your average taxpayer? >> can i jump in on that? >> yes. >> the rebuttal is this is not a tax plan for the wealthy. in fact, we're seeing
homeownership at over decade lows. you're seeing the labor force, people are at 40 year lows. people more than ever are on food stamps. this will help people create jobs, bring back growth. what we've seen over the last ten years, moderate growth. he's looking at 3.5 to 10% growth. >> he talks about energy. >> that will be a very big revenue driver to pay down the deficit, peter. he's going to win. the reason he's going to win is there's a stark contrast between his economic plan and her failed policy. once people realize that the polls are going to swing in his direction. >> trump, the plan may be there, but is the average person going to hear through the noise and say, hey, this is something that's going to improve my life? >> i think he's going to have to tell the story a lot. he's going to have to go into diners, he's going to have to go into poor neighborhoods and tell people face to face, hey, this is how this is going to specifically help you.
one thing people may get an epiphany on is the policies i have voted on for a long time have not worked. the party that keeps talking about income and equality, everywhere they've been in control income and equality has gotten worse, not better. >> he needs to get to those people in poverty. >> this has the potential, i'm sorry, to unleash the pent up dna that we all have as americans. it's in there. you know, there's a lot of frustrated people who would love to start a business. create the right back drop and they'll do it. >> we've got to leave it right there. is that what he said? in detroit, stagnation, you're right, some people have said get away from the flags, get out with the people. >> let me tell you, he's a very approachable guy. he loves people and the people love him when they meet him. >> all-americans. >> thank you, charles, nicole and anthony.

it's promising to directly target and kill americans fighting that terror group in that operation in iraq. the iranian militia leader was directly responsible for executing, executing four u.s. soldiers in iraq in 2007. their families are now suing iran. this comes as news that they handed the eye rashian regime $400 million at the same time they released four additional prisoners. the man sets himself on fire while trying to burn down a building in kentucky. he throws a molotov cocktail and the flames shoot right back at him. he runs off diving into some grass. tries to shake off the flames and then he returns to finish the job. wow. police still looking for that guy. and team u.s.a. adding to its medal count in rio increasing our nation's lead against the rest of the world with 19 in all.

napolitano. judge, good morning to you. i thought federal employees were given personal immunity when it comes to dealing with lawsuits. >> they are. as long as any official of the federal government behaves within the authority given to that official. the president of the united states, in this case the secretary of state. they are not personally liable for the unforeseen or even intended consequences of their behavior. there's exceptions to this -- >> sure. >> -- none of which seem to apply here. but here's their case. one of the e-mails found having been hacked from sid blo bloomenthal's server -- >> obama didn't want him to have. >> right. she tried to hire him and president obama said no. she e-mailed him almost everything about libya. one of the e-mails that was hacked by the eastern european hackers was the itinerary of

truth, you have to prove the truth of what you said. on the other hand, it's an opinion. everybody is entitled to an opinion. >> sure. >> it's fair comment. everybody is entitled to fair comment. quite frankly, i don't think either parts of this lawsuit are going to go -- they're certainly not going to go anywhere during the election campaign. judges will not rule on something like this during the campaign and they don't like to rule on cases like this at all because they view them as essentially political. if you don't like hillary, go on television and tell everybody why you don't like her. don't bother the judicial system. that would be the thoughts of most judges. >> if they wouldn't address this until after the election, this is to inflict as much damage on hillary clinton as they could. >> the lawyer here who a lot of us know larry clemon is a real gadfly. this is just another lawsuit that he's had to drive her crazy. >> thank you very much. >> all the best, steve.

folks making the decisions is this art offensive and why is it being removed? >> well, they believe a couple of things about this art. one of the things they think it presents a stereotype threat. that inhibits the education of the students. they sometimes will talk about the harm that these paintings cause. although the most recent announcement by the chancellor wasn't anything about harm. it was a business decision to recruit more native american students. >> all right. the chancellor says here's the statement from the chancellor. when they look at the art to them it symbolizes an era of their history where land and possessions were taken away from them and they feel bad when they look at them. what is your reaction? >> i imagine students -- some students do feel that way. my belief is that education -- public education exists to educate and empower our students, not to stifle art or shelter our students.
>> so professor, we all feel bad about things we have seen in the past. we see things that we wish had never happened, but history is history. things happen and we have to have honest conversations about them today. what are the ramifications of this going forward of the safe spaces, part of the reasons they moved it to the conference room so no one would be confronted in a public space about this art. what does it tell us about the conversations we're having on our campuses? >> well, it's very worrisome. this last year has been -- a lot of these stories, right? so we need to tell people these kind of paintings are not a contagious disease that has to be quarantined, in some kind of isolation chamber or something. the past has some ugly and offensive things. now, art is art. right? some people think these paintings are ugly and offensive. some people don't find anything ugly or offensive about them. it's not my job as an educate
tore tell students whether it's ugly or offensive. it's my job to tell them about paintings. tell them about the arguments about art and let them decide for themselves. >> professor, thank you so much for being on with us. >> good old trusty first amendment, thanks, professor. 50 national security experts joining forces to condemn donald trump. his first response will happen right here live in the next hour. plus, america's mayor rudy giuliani joins us on the couch. that's him right there with our steve at the top of the hour. >> come on in, mayor. 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. good morning to you and your family. it is tuesday, it's august 9th, 2016. i'm ainsley earhardt. donald trump unveiling his plan to keep your money in your wallet.
>> these reforms will offer the biggest tax revolution since the reagan tax reform. we will make america grow again. >> we will talk to donald trump about his plan and he's also going to take your questions live this hour. so send them in, please. plus, police across the nation under attack and now mayors are afraid they cannot protect their own officers. america's mayor rudy giuliani joins us live in two minutes. then if you're about to hop in your car with a cup of coffee, you better think again. your morning ritual could soon be illegal. should i -- should i be holding the wheel right now? >> that's illegal? >> apparently. this is not illegal though. neither is this show. mornings are better with "friends." ♪ >> here we go. we've got rudy giuliani, donald
trump and laura ingraham all coming up shortly on this show. >> exciting show today. happy tuesday. >> plus the story out of new jersey where if you're drinking coffee, it could be considered distracted driving. >> i knew it was new jersey. in your state, in your state, it's so expensive. you shouldn't be caught on a cell phone, you know, when you're driving. >> i know. >> but when the law first started, like ten years ago when i moved to new york, i thought -- i got a big, expensive ticket for that in new jersey. >> some are suggesting it would include your coffee going forward. america runs on dunkin'. this could change everything. we'll have a fair and balanced debate in a little bit. >> but first, let's get right to the race for the white house. donald trump rolling out what he calls a tax revolution, but hillary clinton is already slamming his ideas as old and tired. >> well, someone who is not old, but might be a little tired is the fox news senior national correspondent john roberts. john?
>> reporter: peter, truth be told, i'm a little bit of both. good morning. from the university of north carolina, at wilmington, the trask coliseum where donald trump has a big rally this afternoon. if he jams it in, it should be a good raucous rally here for trump in the swing state of north carolina. he'll be going hard on economic policy after the big speech in detroit yesterday in which he reached out really to working class, middle class folks to say under you, i will make your lives better. i will create jobs through tax cuts and getting rid of a lot of regulation. really going after the same subset of voters that propelled ronald reagan to the white house back in 1980. first of all, he'd cut the corporate tax rate to 15% from 35%. that's getting a positive response from corporations. large and small alike.
he would also change the income tax brackets for individuals to 12, 25 and 33%. that's down from the current levels but up from what he had originally proposed it was 10, 20 and 25%. his new plan now tracking more closely with what republicans in general have been proposing. donald trump taking on hillary clinton, wanting to pursue the same type of policies as the obama administration. ones he claims have led to anemic economic growth. here's trump. >> we will make america grow again. it will present a night and day contrast to the job-killing, tax-raising, poverty-inducing obama/clinton agenda. >> reporter: hillary clinton as you can imagine jumped on all of that right away. criticizing not only the plan but the members of his economic team. listen to what clinton said yesterday. >> he's got -- i don't know, a dozen or so economic advisers he
just named hedge fund guys, billionaire guys, six guys named steve. his tax plan will give super big tax breaks to large corporations and the really wealthy. just like him and the guys who wrote the speech, right? >> reporter: he does have six guys named steve including steve roth, steve my news and stephen miller. kind of bad headline for donald trump when maine senator susan collins said she would be among the republicans not voting for donald trump. i'm sure you've got a lot to clue over with him when he appears with you coming up in few minutes. steve, ainsley and pete? >> we do indeed. john roberts, thank you very much. meanwhile here on the curvy couch former new york city rudy giuliani. >> nice to be with you. >> so in watching donald trump's speech yesterday from the detroit economic club, some people have suggested that it had echoes of reagan. >> it did, right?
>> i was about to say that. i worked for ronald reagan, he's my hero. i have been on the board of the reagan library for 13 years and i got to know mrs. reagan as a personal friend in the last ten years of her life. i'm a reagan acolyte. gives me the same enthusiasm i had when i showed up in washington in 1981 to be the associate attorney general. he's talking about a tax revolution, really. now this is -- he's following a script. he didn't invent this. he's following john kennedy. and ronald reagan. and me. and about ten republican governors. that plan he talked about is what i did for new york city. people want know did new york's economy turn around from 10.5% unemployment to 5 or 6% unemployment, how do we get 600,000 people off welfare even before -- we started welfare reform two years before clinton and speaker gingrich did it. here's how we did it. we lowered taxes. we lowered regulations and we were friendly to business.
and we were friendly to big businesses. you know why? not because i particularly like big businesses. because they have a lo of job -- they have a lot of jobs. that's how you get jobs. all the people she's accusing of being his advisers -- >> the steves? >> the steves are guys and people who made money. >> well, you know -- >> who understand the american economy. and what she's relying on are a bunch of pin head professors who haven't made a penny in their lives. they have these ridiculous theories like if i lower a tax, i had a $40 million budget, i'm going to lose all that money. they don't calculate how much i get from the tax cut. for example, i lowered the hotel occupiensy tax in half and i collected twice as much. when bush raised the capital gains tax, he lost money, but this is much more complicated than the pinheads make it. and donald trump having been in business understands what is
necessary with tax policy in order to create jobs. cutting that corporate tax is brilliant. 35% in america, 12.5% in ireland. where are you going to take your business? >> a no-brainer. >> what was your reaction to the 50 top national security experts who said they can't vote for donald trump because they think held risk -- he'll risk the national security? >> a lot are friends of mine some were employees of mine. i think it makes it clear, he's running against the washington insiders. these are the people who have been running policy for the last eight or ten years and -- 12 years. the american people have to deliver a judgment on that. america is headed in the wrong direction. these are the people who headed it in the wrong direction. >> is it truly bombastic
rhetoric or is it the fact that they're just not a part of his administration -- >> that's it exactly. everybody who has run for president has been part of the club. mitt romney was part of the club. john mccain, al gore was part of the club. trump is not part of the club. thank god. he's not part of the washington insiders who have brought us -- what do we have? we have a disfunctional government. we have a more dangerous world. we've got a budget that's out of control. we have a budget deficit out of control. we have truly an aminnemic tax growth. so congratulations, you're the people who did it to us. >> so -- >> you want to be on that side? i see this as an election of you're the guys in -- you're the ones who created the reason why the american people believe we're moving in the wrong direction by 70% and donald trump has come from the outside with a group of -- okay, reagan-like ideas. to revolutionize washington and
they don't have the connections to him. they -- these are a lot of people who recycle in and out of government. >> how about -- >> a revolving door. >> yeah, they go into government, come out and make a lot of money, going back into government. >> are they scared of losing their jobs? >> no, no. they don't know him. he's not part of the club. he's not part of the washington club. look, frankly, i was part of the washington club. i'm an associate attorney general. i know 80% of them. i do business with maybe four or five of them. but they're all part of the washington insider group and it makes trump's points dramatically that he is the outsider representing everybody else who doesn't have a lobbyist in washington. >> mayor, so if you're one of these 50 people and you're saying don't vote for trump some have said they'll vote for hillary. others have said they won't vote at all. but isn't the effect the same? if you don't vote for trump and you're a republican, it's a vote for hillary? >> here's the difference.
a lot of bernie sanders people won't vote for hillary clinton except they're not a bunch of washington insiders. john smith from vermont and tom -- tom jones from oregon who's voting against hillary is not going to have -- that guy is an outsider, he probably should be voting for trump. but in any event, this is a perfect example of what this election is all about. do you want the continuation, government as we have known it for the -- really for the last 10 to 15 years? which is basically been a government that the american people has pronounced as going in the wrong direction. or do we want to take a ship of state and turn it around and turn it toward opportunity and growth and toward a much tougher stance on islamic terrorism than all of these people have taken? >> yeah. well, a recent survey, political magazine did an anonymous survey of america's mayors. and you have talked about police and the ramifications of black lives matter. and we've got a poll that this -- this poll that went out
to america's mayors across the entire country. most of which are democratic mayors. by the way. 80% are left-leaning cities and 12% are worried about the safety of their police. 74% worried. you add those together, 86% of america's mayors are either very worried or worried about the safety of their police. >> and 100% of the police are. >> sure. >> i can't travel anywhere without being approached by a police officer, maybe because of my speech of the convention and they all tell me, mayor, you have to speak up for us. we have a target on the back. some talk about black lives matter, some talk about the president, some talk about hillary clinton. look, on the floor of the democratic convention, there were no uniformed police officers. >> you told us that, that's right. >> there were no uniformed police officers. she has not submitted an application for an endorsement -- >> she doesn't want it. >> from the fraternal order of police. they do not like the police. they are anti-police.
they are anti-cop. they don't want to lose whatever radical support they have by having policemen around. and that is -- we are creating an atmosphere in america where it's very dangerous for police. >> mayor, thank you. >> thank you, mayor. >> going to be traveling with donald trump later on today. >> let's hand it over to heather. thank you. you have some headlines for us. i do. good morning, mr. mayor, nice to have you back. think of how many take our families to the fairs every year. the terrifying moments at a county fair in tennessee. >> major incident at the fair grounds at the ferris wheel. there's been at least three fall out of the ferris wheel. one unresponsive. >> i have three kids who fell from the ferris wheel. three kids. >> witnesses say the basket was
caught on the wheel before it tipped over and it spilled out the girls like water that's how bystanders described it. all three were rushed to the hospital by helicopter. they're said to be alert and talking. the fair is set to reopen today but all rides will remain closed. delta's warning travelers of more delays today as it recovers from that global computer glitch. nearly 250 flights have been canceled so far today. this all because of that power outage at a -- at the headquarters. that triggered that systemwide melt down stranding tens of thousands of passengers. that airline even forced to issue handwritten worlding passes at some airports. they're issuing waivers. a busy news day. thanks. we start with a fox news alert. a google executive murdered while jogging near her mother's house. the latest on the manhunt for the killer. he's back! iran's former president has a message for president obama. show me the money.

a manhunt intensifying by the minute for the killer of a young new york city woman. >> her name is vanessa marcotte. she went for a jog while visiting her mother in massachusetts when she just vanished. police did find her, dead, in the woods. >> stephanie quinn yu from fox 25 is live with the breaking details. stephanie? >> reporter: and again, because police are still searching for the killer, they do not know if this was a random murder they're stepping up patrols in the area and they're asking everyone to be on high alert. i want to show you a photo of 27-year-old vanessa marcotte. and again, police say that she went out for a jog sunday afternoon. never returned. hours later, they found her body in a wooded area. less than a mile away from her mother's home. investigators though at this point not saying exactly how she died but they're looking into
whether she may have been sexually assaulted and then set on fire. and again, she had been visiting her family here from new york city where she had worked at google. now, this comes one week after a woman in new york city was found dead in a wooded area near her home after she went out for a run. the autopsy there shows 30-year-old katrina vetrano died from strangulation. mow, police say there's no reason to believe the two cases are connected but again police here still searching for the killer, asking everyone not to walk alone, to lock their doors and be on high alert. back to you. >> all right, thank you very much, live in massachusetts. >> awful story. >> terrible. >> what's going on? well, what would you do if you missed your flight? would you run across the tarmac like this guy? >> well -- >> i don't think that's going to work. sorry. and donald trump just revealed his tax plan to cut
your taxes and the business taxes and the donald is going to join us at the bottom of the hour, and he's going to answer your questions. but first, stuart varney here to break down what it means for your wallet. he's going to bring his wallet. good morning. you can run an errand. (music playing) ♪ push it real good...

here's a quick look at here headlines. iran wants its money back, now. its ex-president he's back. mahmoud ahmadinejad telling president obama to fix a supreme court ruling that allows american families in -- impacted by terror to get $2 billion in frozen assets in compensation. otherwise, some of money would go to the families of the victims of the 1983 marine
barracks bombing in lebanon. and one university boss is fighting back against protesters. take a look at this. the university of california berkeley now has a $9,000 escape door near chancellor nicholas derk's office for him to get out if there were protesters outside. his house is also protected by a $700,000 fence. >> wow. >> wouldn't a rope ladder work? >> wow. donald trump revealing his official economic plan and he says he's going to make america great again. >> no american company will pay more than 15% of their business income in taxes. we will work with house republicans on this plan using the same brackets they have
proposed. 12%, 25% and 33%. these reforms will offer the biggest tax revolution since the reagan tax reform. >> well, trump will join us live in about ten minutes to answer your questions you have been sending in about his tax plan. but first, stuart varney, the host of "varney & co." on the fox business network. here to break it all down. >> that plan is all about growth. it is about getting the economy moving again, to create more jobs. and at the heart of it is the tax cutting plan. as you heard from mr. trump right there, 15%. the top rate that businesses can pay. 15% that represents a sitting kajtd -- significant cut in the taxes they're paying. 15% corporate tax rate. 12, 25, 33% tax rates, all are down where they are now. that's massive tax cut from
individuals, putting money into the hands of those who go go out and spend it. >> would the deductships go away -- deductions go away for charities or home -- >> we don't know that yet. he's concentrating on tax cutting, less regulation and the production of domestic energy. get the economy moving again. because if you've got growth, if you can get 4% growth you have far more jobs, you've got higher incomes, got more demand in the economy. up goes the economy. some people would say that's a return to a feeling of prosperity. >> a lot of parents out there like the child care -- you can expense your child care costs. >> tax deductible. >> that's wonderful. but does that include clothes and dinapers or the child care - >> we don't know yet. at the moment it is a tax deduction for the child care expenses which middle america has these days. >> yes. stuart, a lot of talk about growth and these policies would
incentivize a lot of that. what about growth in the wallet for the individual? what's the individual looking for in this plan to say hey, this is where i'm going to add to my wealth? >> i think it translates into growth meaning more jobs. higher pay. that's what it means to individuals. at the moment, half the country pays nothing in federal income taxes. so they would not be affected by a cut in federal income tax rates. for the other half which does pay federal income tax they would have more money in their pockets. small businesses started up if you have a maximum tax rate of 15%, that's more money into the hands of business owners. so for individuals for their own wallets, it's more money theoretically coming into the wallets. >> well, when you talk about the various economic plans you have trump's coming out yesterday and hillary coming out on wednesday. she got a bad review in "the washington post" yesterday, that talked about when running for
u.s. senate, if you elect me to new york state, i will make sure they create 200,000 jobs but they never materialized. in fact, manufacturing jobs went down 25%. >> i know something about upstate new york. and i spent a lot of time up there. that's an area that's been devastated -- absolutely devastated. every single county, every sun single one in the last ten years has lost 10% of their 20 and 30 somethings. a mass exodus of people who are preparing to start families and get on with their live, they have left the state. that occurred during hillary clinton's watch. >> detroit can relate to that. stick around. we'll talk to donald trump. will you stick around and talk to donald trump? >> please, it's all about growth. i'm up for that. plus, donald trump is going to answer some of your e-mail. e-mail us firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us or facebook us.
well, as promised donald trump joins us. he's running for president of the united states on the republican side. we've got stuart varney from fox business with us. good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you? >> we're doing okay. your ears must have been buzzing this morning because we have been talking about pro business, anti-tax tax revolution essentially that you unveiled yesterday in detroit that some are saying has echoes of reagan. >> well, a lot of people have been saying that actually. i think maybe it does and it wasn't necessarily supposed to be that way, but it's a similar concept. and we very, very substantially lower taxes and it will make our country hum. >> mr. trump, some people have some questions about the details. you know, as a mother, as a new
mother i know pete has young kids at home and you're talking about being able to write off our child care. what are the details around that? >> well, the details are going to be put out -- they're very complicated process, but it's very fair to the mothers and to the families. these are people that are working very hard. and they're not allowed -- you know, if you have a business you're allowed to do that. if you raise a child which is harder work, you're not. this is something -- ivanka trump was very much involved in this one i will tell you. it's something that's resonating and people like a lot. the exact detail, we have pretty good details, but the exact details we'll be announcing over the next who weeks. >> okay. stuart, you have a question for mr. trump? >> half the country, mr. trump, does not pay federal income tax. >> right. >> what do they get out of your plan? >> well, the ones that aren't paying aren't going to be paying. the ones that don't have the jobs or the good jobs they have a zero number in front. the rest of them we have lowered. we have lowered the rates substantially for the middle class as you see. and when people aren't paying,
and you know -- we spend billions of dollars in washington on bureaucracy, on sending in papers for people who aren't paying and there are people who don't pay. when they're not paying, we're going to work it so we're not sending it in. we save a tremendous amount of money in terms of bureaucracy. but the key is to get the people up so they pay the minimum rate then -- we want to create jobs and the way we'll create jobs is to lower the corporate rate in particular, lower the corporate rate because we have companies that are going out of business. the other thing we're lowering -- a very important part of it is we're lowering regulation. the regulation is making it impossible for people to open up new businesses. >> can we get 4% growth if your tax plan -- your deregulation plan is put into effect, 4% growth quickly? >> i think the answer is yes, and i think even more than that. with this plan i think more than that. i think we'd grow. you know, when china, as you know better than anybody, when china goes down to 7% it's
national catastrophe, we are at 1% and maybe going lower believe it or not. right now at 1%. i think 4% is easily attainable. >> mr. trump, your plan has been characterized as very pro growth and widely praised except not surprisingly by your opponent, hillary clinton, who has been obviously highly critical. this is what she had to say yesterday. we want to get you to respond to it. >> he's got three wall street money managers and oil barons, a former chief economist and one of the big banks at the heart of the financial crisis. he's got six men named steve. and, you know, they all care about the same things he does. about, you know, how to avoid paying their fair share. >> hey, what's the matter with guys being named steve? just saying. >> well this as everybody knows this is a partial list. we're putting the other names on
it over the next two weeks. you will see the full council. but we have had tremendous brain power working on it and we understand how to do it. if you look at hillary clinton, when she was a senator she was going to rebuild new york. okay? it was a big thing and it was a big ceremony. upstate new york is a total disaster. jobs have left. we lost 47% of our manufacturing jobs. under her when she was a senator. but she was going to rebuild it. she came one a plan and everybody talked about the plan. and it was a total disaster. so that's basically what we're going to have too with the country. >> when she was running for the u.s. senate she ran a tv ad here in new york state that said i'll add -- i'll make sure that 200,000 jobs were added but it went south. you talked about this yesterday. >> i did. >> the formal structure of the unions are very much on hillary clinton's side. do you think the members of unions will come over to your side, given your plan? >> i do.
like the teamsters. i have employed thousands and thousands of teamsters over the years. i understand that, you know, the rank and file is going wild for trump. they want to have me. we're going to rebuild the infrastructure of the country. she won't have a clue. and the teamsters many of the unions are absolutely rank and file. now, the bosses, the leaders, some of them are, you know, they oautomatically push the democratic button. rank and file is big us for. certain big unions i have a feeling they'll be coming my way. >> when you get to washington, d.c., there's a lot of tug and pull and back to forth. if you were to say in the negotiation, in your tax plan, what would deem is the most important, what wouldn't you give away? the individual rates being simplified, the regulation what's the biggest thing in the plan? >> well, there are a few things, but i think the corporate tax plan is the biggest lure. that's going to bring new businesses to the country. you know, we're losing our businesses. largely because we don't know what we're doing.
but also because the taxes are too high. we're the highest taxed nations of the major industrialized nations and companies are losing to pay less tax. another thing that's very important is the 10% tax on money coming in. we have trillions of dollars outside of the country we can't get the money in. we can't use that money therefore. and companies are actually leaving to go get their money which is incredible. but they leave this country in order to get money that they can't bring in because they have trillions of dollars outside. it will be taxed at a rate of 10%. that money is going to flow back in. right now it's prohibited, they can't bring it in. >> when you were figuring this out with your advisers, like no flat taxpayer, like herman cain, remember he had the 999 plan? >> i never liked the flat tax that someone making $100 is taxed the same as someone making $1 million. i thought a graduated tax is the better tax. i thought it was a more fair tax. i think when you're making very little, you should be paying,
you know, very little tax. because you need the money. when you're making a lot it could be graduated upward. i always felt that way. >> one of the tax plans that you would like to essentially explore is the death tax. you get taxed during your life and it doesn't make sense to be taxed at the end of your life. you know, how -- there are certain groups that would like to see that continue. why do you think this is good thing to get rid of? >> a lot of people want it. it's very unfair. you look at farmers, they have a good business, but no liquidity. so many businesses and then all of a sudden you're paying this massive death tax it's called an estate tax or a death tax and they have no business left. i mean, their business is gone. they have to go out and borrow. now they're overextended and the farm doesn't work. and tremendous number of farmers -- it has effects on the family businesses where their businesses -- there's a certain value, but there's no cash. they can't pay it.
and everybody wants this to take place. so we're putting it in. this has been a very republican thing to be honest with you. >> you have talked about rebuilding the infrastructure with an infrastructure fund. private individuals would put their money in. and they'd be buying bonds, infrastructure bonds. >> right. >> is that a bit like world war ii victory bonds? >> you could view it that way. but we have to rebuild our infrastructure. you know, we have spent so much money in the middle east, trillions. nobody even knows what is the answer is. i used to say $2 trillion for iraq, nobody knows what it is they have no idea the money we have spent. but you add it up it could have been 4 or $5 trillion. think of what we could have done with that money, think of the roads and the trains and the hospitals and the schools and the money that we have not spent in this country. we have an infrastructure problem. the roads are coming apart. i have friends that are truckers and they say they buy these big beautiful trucks and they're
afraid to drive them on the roads. the highways are all, you know, potholes and problems and everybody knows it. so we have to rebuild our infrastructure. >> mr. trump, another part of what you talked about yesterday is a coming energy revolution, you know the regulations under this administration have put a wet blanket on that. you say it will increase gdp and jobs. how much potential do we have in that energy sector here in america? >> i think it's unbelievable. because you know we as a country we had no idea what we had. we're sitting on top of one of the great energy finds. it's because of technology. the technology allows us to do things which we could never have been done. we're being restricted from doing it. the coal miners, these are miners you look at west virginia, you look at ohio. you look at pennsylvania. hillary clinton wants to put them all out of business, wants to close every mine. she wants to put the miners out of business and steelworkers out of business frankly because
china is dumping so much steel over here it's making it impossible for our steelworkers. they are dumping steel so they've with to buy it from china. very, very simple. they're dumping it over here in numbers that are ridiculous and we have to buy it from china because they'll knock out the rest. so the miners are being put out of business and the steelworkers are being put out of business. we're being played by every country in the world. we don't know what we're doing. honestly, we have leaders that don't know what they're doing. >> mr. trump, at the moment, the stock prices are very close to all-time record highs. should i put my money into stocks right now? >> i wouldn't do it because i think you have a situation where -- you have free money. i even did stocks a while ago. did 50 different stocks just for fun because i'm not a person that really believes in it too much. and i did it just for fun and i did it because, you know, with interest rates you're getting basically free money. if rates go up, you'll see something that's not going to be pretty. and, you know, it's all big bubble. in my opinion, i would not do
it. >> you'd put your money in real estate. by the way, who were the people interrupting you yesterday? >> it sounds like hillary people, i guess. >> there were a lot of them. >> it was sort of interesting, but they don't have the same -- i said it. they don't have the same spirit as bernie. bernie's people, those were serious interruptions. these were sort of -- you know, as obama would say, these were jv -- these were not very good. but the speech was really well received. we had a tremendous crowd. the biggest crowd they have had. it was great. >> our viewers are talking about it. that's why we'd like you to stay with us because donald trump on the other side of a quick time-out is going to be answering viewers' questions. so keep them coming. you can post them on facebook, twitter or e-mail them, email@example.com. we'll be right back with stuart. >> all right.

we have never had such an e-mail response on facebook as well. >> thank you so much. >> donald trump continues with us. mr. trump, here's an e-mail from ellen. she asks, gas for cars is cheap now. will you explain how deregulation will lower our electric bills? >> well, it's going to keep it low. one of the problems we have with electric it's a very big problem, a tremendous problem, we can't fuel the plants because our coal is just about being put out of business. a lot of the plants have to reboot and do other things. china is using coal, they're taking some of our coal. and other people are. but what they're doing is deregulation is -- has been -- the federal government has made it so hard for natural gas producers, coal producers, they're driving them out of business. prices are going to go up.
and it's making them literally impossible. the plants will have to be rebuilt and electric bills are going to start going through the roof. it's very, very sad because the federal government is putting so much pressure on these producers that it is -- it's a very -- you know, i deal with the producers all the time and these are people in many cases substantial people that are going out of business. and electric bills -- tell you what if they're not careful they'll go through the roof. >> nancy has a question for you. what is he going to do about student loan debt? >> so the single biggest problem that i see when i go around especially with the young peopl college, they go to the good college, they work hard, they become a good student, they graduate high in their class. number one, they can't get a job. the biggest thing i'm going to do is get everybody jobs. we're going to bring our jobs back so big league. that's the biggest thing. so we're coming out with a plan probably in early september to help students with student debt. because you know, the college
costs have gone up so much and they don't watch because the students are like a conduit to get money from the government. the student borrows the money and gives it to the college and they don't care what the costs are because the college costs have gone up rapidly. i think it's because the colleges don't care. we're going to come out with a plan to help the student because they're suffering with debt. i mean, it's destroying people before they even start. >> mr. trump, i want to get this one in. it's from janet writing in from cleveland. the middle class is being bled by taxes. would you support a payroll tax holiday? >> well, it's something that's being talked about, absolutely. and the middle class is what we're talking about. as you see we have tax -- a big, big tax cut for the middle class already. but it's something being thought about. something i'm thinking about but we have already given under my plan as you know, stuart, we have given a major cut to the middle class. the middle class has been the forgotten class in this country. they built our country. the middle class has been the
forgotten class. we have already given them a very big one. it is something we're thinking about however. >> finally, quick one, mr. trump. when will seniors get a social security increase more than 60 cents? what are you going to do for our seniors living in poverty? >> we're looking at social security, i'm the one that's saving social security. other people want knock it out. but we are looking at social security, the people are not making it on social security. it's a very big problem. we'll take care of it. >> mr. trump, thank you for answering so many questions for us. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> he's off now to wilmington, north carolina, which is where our own john roberts is. stuart, thank you very much. well done. >> a pleasure being here. >> go over to the studio right on the other side of that wall right now. >> i will certainly do. after the break. all right, coming up, speaking of break, on the other side of it, we have laura ingraham at the top of the hour. don't leave us.
well, your morning routine is heading to work with coffee in hand. it could soon cost you a $400 ticket in my home state of new jersey, which cracks down on any distractions behind the wheel, including applying makeup or stirring a cup of coffee perhaps. is that a good idea or does it go too far? here to debate is a former prosecutor and trial attorney whitney bone. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> why do you want to take away my coffee? >> don't worry, nobody is taking away your coffee. no one is going to get ticketed simply for drinking coffee in the car, but if your coffee spills in your lap because you're applying your mascara, surfing the radio and driving with your knees and that causes
you to drive unsafely, yes, you're going to get a ticket and deservedly so. >> what proposed bill is very broad. so who knows what it includes. >> exactly. what this includes is a police officer -- thinks, you know, you seem distracted, too stressed about work, your mind is elsewhere, or maybe you're singing at the top of your lungs. you're too distracted, i'm going to ticket you and you're in violation of the law. you may face fines, a hike in your insurance freemiums because of -- premiums because of points on your license. doing the things that normal people do. it's far too broad. >> also the radios these days if you go from a.m. over to xm radio you're looking over at the panel for ten seconds. is that distracted driving? >> yes, it is. here's why you won't get in trouble for that, if you're operating unsafely. if you can navigate your xm
radio without veering off the road, you're okay. the miss don't haven't to go into your minds so they can decide whether or not we're distracted in our heads. it's how you are operating the vehicle that's going to make the difference. >> oh, whitney is shaking her head no. >> it's too subjective. it leaves too much run for subjectivity. what if somebody yells out and it distract you? then you at fault? >> how is the cop going know? the cop won't know that. >> maybe the passenger tells the cop and it gives far too much discretion. we already have laws in place to protect each other. protect ourselves from each other on the road. this -- this goes too far. overly broad. it assumes that every driver on the road should not be distracted. you can be distracted and be a safe driver. >> let's see what they do in new jersey. all right. thank you very much. good, spirited debate. all right. meanwhile, moments ago you heard trump fire back at critics who call him a danger to national

good morning to you and to your family. it is tuesday, it's august 9th, 2016. i'm ainsley earhardt. donald trump unveiling the plan to keep your money in your wallets. >> these reforms will offer the biggest tax revolution since the reagan tax reform. we will make america grow again. >> well, hillary clinton's already attacking those words. just moments ago her -- his response on "fox & friends." you'll hear from donald trump responding to hillary in just a few moments. >> you will, ainsley. then the families of two of the benghazi victims now suing hillary clinton. they say she is directly to blame for their sons' deaths.
laura ingraham here to weigh in on that in two minutes. what would you do if you missed your flight? would you run across the tarmac to try and catch it like -- a lot of us ran across airports. tarmac? >> oh, that poor guy. >> a whole other level of extreme -- look at that. >> i don't think that's going to work. >> i'm just glad that isn't me. might be later though. mornings are better with "friends." >> was that brian? i know he's on vacation this week. >> unknown. unknown. you can tentatively report. >> please, let me on. >> we have pete hegseth with us today. great to have you. >> i hope you get on your flight today. >> i hope so too. >> meanwhile, we have laura ingraham coming up in a minute. but first, headlines with heather. >> no badly sam needs you at
home to take care of the three little kids -- >> i'll run across the tarmac. good morning. a story, how many times have you taken your kids to the ride at the fair, well, a real nightmare to tell you about that happened. three children falling nearly 50 feet out of a ferris wheel. this happened overnight. the terrifying moments playing out during the opening night of a county fair in tennessee. >> we had a major incident at the fair grounds, at the ferris wheel. there's been at least three fall out of the ferris wheel. one unresponsive. >> i have three kids that have fell from the ferris wheel. three kids. >> and then take a new look at this brand-new chilling picture just coming in to our newsroom. witnesses say that that basket right there in the red circle was caught on the wheel before it tipped over and spilled out the three little girls. witnesses say they spilled out like water. all three children were rushed to the hospital and they're said
to be alert and talking. the fair is set to reopen today, but all rides will remain closed. a fox news alert to bring you right now. a manhunt intensifying for the killer of a young new york city woman. 27-year-old vanessa marcotte, a google employee, went out for a jog while she was visiting her mom in princeton, massachusetts. but she never came home. her body was found hours later in the woods. police say her head, her feet and her hands were burned. well, this comes just days after a similar case. karina vetrano was killed while jogging in new york. an arsonist plan backfires. a guy setting himself on fire while trying to burn down a building in kentucky. oops is right. he throws a molotov cocktail of sorts and the flames shoot back at him. he runs off. diving into some grass and then tries to shake off the flames. he returns to finish the job. this guy is not too bright or
very determined or both. police are still looking for him. they're not going to find him. minus the pants. well, two long standing members of the cast of "saturday night live" now leaving the show. >> you know what happened the other day? she said, daddy, that man who ran across the white house lawn and wanted to kill you, was that mitch mcconnell? >> jay pharoah who played president obama and ben carson will not have his contract renewed. also on the move, taran killam. remember him? >> welcome back to "fox & friends." i'm steve doocy. >> i like these guys. well, i like steve especially. but he's a guy who plays steve doocy on spoof of our show. the big questions this morning -- who is going to play steve this morning? i still love the chubby brian. >> brian does not like that one bit. >> no.
>> well, they don't look alike at all. >> but it makes it so funny. >> you're right. you're right. >> i had the chance to meet fake steve at the anchor man 2 premiere. >> very cool. >> there he is. we took that off my phone a second ago. taran killam. a very nice guy. i love being played by a guy who's 30. just saying. laura ingraham joins us once a week and she joins us right now, live from washington, d.c. >> hey, good to see you. >> what did you think of the trump plan yesterday? >> i -- the thing about this this is that the media and all of these, you know, republican trump critics have been saying for months, you've got to take this substantive, talk about the economy, jobs and the economy remain the number one issue for the american people. so he goes to detroit, a place that has been hammered by terrible management. mostly under democratic control and he makes a compelling case for pro growth agenda that most
conservatives i know thought the substance of which was phenomenal. you can talk about whether he reads the teleprompter -- none of that matters. especially on the corporate tax reform basis, where you bring down the corporate tax rate to 15% so many yesterday -- i was getting tweets and texts from folks who, you know, some of them not fans of trump say that alone would create the beginning of an economic renaissance in american business. we need those types of measures in place. i think that's exactly what the trump campaign has to be focusing on. the economy, the economy, the economy. that means you're going to have more money in your pocket if trump gets elected. you want a job, then you're going to have a chance to get a better job if he's elected. if hillary is elthe policies doy put us further and further in debt. i think that's the pitch you have to make. whether the media is going to allow him to make that or just belittle him at every turn, i can't say that. but i think that was a good step
in the right and substantive direction yesterday. >> yeah. hillary was in florida and she spoke out right after he came out with his plan. we're going to listen to what she said and then donald trump responding because she's not in favor of his plan, of course. take a listen. >> he's got three wall street money managers, an oil baron, and one of those who was head of the big banking crisis. six men named steve and, you know, they all care about the same things he does. about, you know, how to avoid paying their fair share. >> you know, if you look at hillary clinton, when she was a senator she was going to rebuild new york. okay? it was a big thing and it was a big ceremony and never happened. upstate new york is a total disaster. jobs have left. we lost 47% of our manufacturing jobs under her when she was a senator. but she was going to rebuild it and she came one a plan and everybody -- came up with a plan
and everybody talked about the plan and it was a total disaster. that's basically what we'll have here with the country. >> that was donald trump responding a few moments ago on the show. >> think about hillary's response to trump's substantive plan laid out yesterday. her response was, well, he has a bunch of people, they used to work for wall street and a bunch named steve. now, this is a woman who is described by barack obama as the most qualified person in recent memory to run for the presidency. if she's the most qualified person to run for the presidency where are her ideas that are different in any real respect from what barack obama tried and didn't work? so she can have her one off comments about wall street. but this is in the wake of the billionaires lining up for her over the last two weeks. those same billionaires who were set to profit enormously from transpacific partnership and owl of the other measures that are simply going to double and triple down on trade deficits and other economic misery for the rust belt of the country.
it's clear from what's going on, they don't want a serious debate. all they want to say is, you know trump is this or that. he's mean. that's all they're going to have. but for regular people watching this show today, this isn't working. what we're doing isn't working. and the temperament of hillary clinton yesterday in response indicates that she doesn't have either the ideas or the temperament or the approach that is really going to get this economy kick started into high gear. so the substance yesterday was on trump's side. the rhetoric was on hillary's side and very rich coming from someone who made couple hundred thousand dollars every time she opened her mouth at goldman sachs. >> exactly right. oh, the irony of her panning trump for wall street connections. >> that's just laughable. i mean, just a knee slapper. >> indeed. well, another topic that came up yesterday, two of the americans killed in benghazi are now suing hillary clinton for wrongful death and blaming the careless treatment -- blaming it in part
on the careless treatment of sensitive information. the parents of sean smith and tyrone woods. obviously, the server that was unsecured, we even hear there was information on that server about the itinerary of the ambassador. what do you make of this lawsuit and keeping this in the news? >> well, again, when we perhaps learn more about the e-mails that were quote deleted or still missing from hillary's server we are going to know a lot more about what was there, whether there was any relation to the clinton global initiative. lobbying or influence peddling there when hillary was about to take over as secretary of state or had taken over as secretary of state. we perhaps will learn more about what happened the night of benghazi. you know, i was thinking about this. remember the commercial that was such a powerful commercial in 2008, you know, when the phone ring, at 3:00 in the morning who's going to answer it? think about it. hillary was actually right about obama back then.
he's not taking it seriously either, but she was wrong about herself. on that night of benghazi when they needed her, where was she? they hadn't convened the counterterrorism task force, wasn't in the situation room and those men died that night. for all the comments about trump's temperament and trump's this and that, the bottom line is when we needed her, where was she? and i think this lawsuit whether the cause of action is going to stand or not, i have to look more into that. i think that might be a little tough to play. but the question is, when the men needed her on the ground, where was she? and i think that's the stuff that the trump campaign has to talk about. don't get, you know, caught on any of the side -- you know, side questions. the question of temperament, the question of judgment and experience, i'd turn that right around on supposedly the most qualified person to ever run for the presidency, the night of benghazi when those americans decembsperately needed help.
she wasn't there to give the right orders. she wasn't there to take that national security threat seriously in benghazi. the day that ambassador travelled there he should never have been there. where was the clinton team? >> great questions. their suing for defamation of character because she essentially called them liars. the families. >> i got it. interesting. >> all right. lie -- all right, laura, thank you for joining us live. she's the editor-in-chief of lifezette. coming up, donald trump firing back at the 50 republican national security experts who penned an open letter condemning him yesterday. one of them responds to trump here next. and our friend tim tebow is about to get back in the game. and we're not talking football. >> a different game? >> yep. >> oh. i'm mary ellen,

that he would be a dangerous president and would put at risk our nation's -- our country's national security. one of the names on the letter is a former deputy assistant secretary of defense under george w. bush. he joins us right now from our nation's capital. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning. >> so roger, why did you take the extraordinary step, coming up signing this letter. essentially sandbagging the republican nominee. >> well, i have had concerns about donald trump's candidacy early on but the events in the last couple of weeks really crescendoed to the event that we all came together -- >> what happened over the last couple of weeks? >> it didn't change my mind, i have opposed he candidacy, but particularly with the attack on the gold star father and mother was just enough for national security professionals. >> roger, you know a lot of people are critical obviously of donald trump's statements around
that particular incident with the gold star father. but it doesn't take away as you know very well the downsides of this administration almost all of which were in some ways partnership with hillary clinton whether it's libya or the abandonment from iraq or elsewhere. decided to come out against trump has the effect of not endorsing by any means -- i know you're critical of hillary clinton as well, but it does open up the door for the hillary clinton presidency -- you say donald trump wouldn't be dangerous. wouldn't that lead to as dangerous of a world? >> listen, i think we have a choice between someone who is bad and someone who is worse. i'm not confined to either one of them. the fact of the matter is we have had real tough challenges. hillary clinton was a part of it. donald trump in many respects if we go to his policies, someone who's advocated many of those policies that president obama has put in place. so we have big problems on the national security front, whether you look at the republican nominee or the democratic nominee. >> roger, rather than write this letter and go against your party's nominee, why not, you know, offer to volunteer to
advise him? try to change his mind on these things? >> well, i think i participated in supporting senator rubio's candidacy and in my judgment, donald trump not a republican or a conservative. what the letter bears out this is someone who doesn't take advice. >> a lot of people supported others and moved to donald trump. if he's so dangerous, why are so many veterans and of the military supporting donald trump, they would untie the hands of those on the battlefields who are fighting politically correct wars? wouldn't it necessarily blow up the conventions that haven't worked in other parts of the world? >> i think the republican nominees has aspired to have the values and the character of lincoln or the party of ronald reagan and donald trump falls short of that standard. i can't speak for others who support him. but he's crossed that line too many times for my support. >> so roger, what are you going to do when it comes time on
november the 8th to vote? >> well, i'm hoping between now and then we'll have another choice. one came out yesterday, someone who served. i'll look closely at that. >> is hillary clinton on your list of potential people you'd vote for? >> as i said, i don't have to choose between bad or worse. i'm not going to vote for either. >> all right. roger, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> all right. two horrific amusement park accidents in the last 48 hours and the next guest, a ride inspector, said he's not surprised. how do you keep your family safe? as if being booed out of the democratic convention wasn't enough -- [ crowd booing ] yep, a new problem for debbie wasserman schultz. we'll tell you all about it. poor mouth breather.

rides. do they quite fit. so we're making the calculations on the daily basis. what went wrong in these instances? >> well, in these two scenarios here with the ferris wheel that -- from my impression that was something mechanical. something either the car gate was configured improperly and got caught on the sweeper arm or something else mechanical came off the car and absolutely -- and actually ok strukted the operation. >> how about on the water slide? >> that's an absolute debacle. that is almost criminal. that ride should have never opened in the first place. >> we have footage. some footage that we found of the testing that was going on on this water slide. if you watch, that is literally flying -- this is just tests. nobody on these, they're testing the water slides. this is before it opened. there's nobody on these. it shows under construction they knew they're playing with fire on this. who would be held accountable in
an instance like this? >> it's my impression that somebody going to jail. okay? you know, whether that be designers, engineers, the owner. inspectors, whoever it was that was responsible for allowing this to thing to operate, in the hazardous design state that it's in. i think it's going to be held accountable because there's too many variables with this current design. knowing that the rafts would fly off like that. i was mortified when i saw that. i never saw anything so ridiculous like this. >> they had a weight requirement and things like that, but obviously dangerous. for parents watching, you know, you have the county fair that comes through. you have the state fair, got permanent amusement parks. what are your tips for the parents when they bring their kids to the different facilities? >> you need to first of all never push your child through the height restriction. if they don't make the restriction -- >> never do what i do every time and i taught my 4-year-old to stand on his tippy toes. >> no, the restraints on a ride
are designed for a particular body size. so it's a shoulder restraint on a roller coaster. it's designed to touch your shoulders. if you're too small and it terminates at the wrong height, you're going to have too many movement in there. >> height and weight for sure. >> someone could die if you push the kid through the height restriction. it's best to follow the rules that are posted on the ride. >> yeah. >> so if it looks sketchy or skeptical it's right to be concerned and maybe step pack? >> most have a mechanical aptitude to say this looks safe, well maintained or this has rust streaks coming down the side. it's making banging noises where it shouldn't or the operator is acting erratic or paying more attention to the girls than the ride. there are a lot of indications that the parent should have enough common sense to say you know what, i'm going to notify the management about this. >> the county fairs do show up for a couple of days and set up
shop and then your kid is up 50 feet in the air. thank
you for your tips this morning. we feel for the families. it's one of the issues that could help decide the november election. >> i am proposing an across the board income tax reduction, especially for middle income americans. this will lead to millions of new and really good-paying jobs. >> that was one portion of donald trump's economic plan. but what's inside hillary's? one of her top advisers joins us next. if there's one thing the world needs more of -- oh, yeah. it's this combination right here. the details of a joint effort between martha stewart and snoop d-o-g-g. stick around. she spent summer binge-watching.
soon, she'll be binge-studying. get back to great. this week sharpie singles now twenty-five cents. office depot officemax. gear up for school. gear up for great. justice is spelled b-o-x. say hello to a powerful tool that gives you options to fit your budget. ♪ oh, i'm tied to this chair! ♪ dun-dun-daaaa! i don't know that an insurance-themed comic book is what we're looking for. did i mention he can save people nearly $600? you haven't even heard my catchphrase. i'm all done with this guy. box him up. that's terrible.
snoop we have had a busy show today. >> it has been. i know. let's hand it over to heather with more headlines. >> i certainly do. we start in texas this morning where the governor there is making his first public appearance since being seriously burned by scalding hot water while he was on a family vacation. he appeared at a ground breaking for a new bridge. the accident happened the same day the deadly dallas police shooting. but despite his injuries, abbott went home for a press conference and he hid the burns. well, this guy is not missing his flight no matter what it takes. watch as he jumps from the gangway, what do they call that? you know what they call it -- skybridge. thank you. he jumps from that on to the
tarmac. he grabs his bag and makes a run for it. he sprints toward two planes taking off in spain. there are a whole lot of dads who would try to get home to relieve their wives for the kids. like pete hegseth. well, trading touchdowns for home runs. the former nfl quarterback, tim tebow, and friend of our show planning to hold a workout for major league baseball teams later this month. tebow last played baseball in 2005 when he was in high school but has been training for the past year hoping to be an outfielder for the big league squad. michael jordan did that too, was it michael jordan? yeah, it was. all right, do you remember when martha stewart taught snoop dogg how to bake green brownies? >> one at a time. >> when do we add the -- >> the eggs? >> the no. the -- >> the stuff? >> yeah. >> later. >> okay. >> when do we add the marijuana? to the brownies?
to martha stewart of all people. vh1 thinks they have a lot more in common than you think. they are co-hosting an unscripted series called "martha and snoop's dinner party." the new hit series is set to be on tv screens this fall. such a great idea. >> i think i'm going to watch that. >> they're so different. but she's really funny. have you ever seen do any -- she's funny. >> martha stewart? >> she is funny. they're so different. i would watch. >> add in flava flav. >> impressive. moving back to politics donald trump laying out his economic plan
yesterday at noon in detroit. >> i am proposing an across the board income tax reduction especially for middle income americans. this will lead to millions of new and really good-paying jobs. the rich will pay their fair share. but no one will pay so much that
it destroys jobs or undermines our ability as a nation to compete. >> not to be outdone, hillary clinton hits the mother city thursday
-- hits the motor city on thursday. what can we expect? >> joining us now is economic adviser to hillary clinton and former director of the national economic council, gene sperling. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having us. >> what can we expect when we hear hillary clinton unroll her job plan? >> i think she'll be playing - laying out the plan she has been talking about and raising jobs and wages for middle income families, because that is really where our economy has not been performing as well the last 15 years. she's going to show a singular focus by having a major infrastructure plan that would leverage over half trillion
dollars and make it an american plan, making our tax code more patriotic in the sense that it rewards you for investing in manufacturing coal communities, low income communities, small business as opposed to giving you incentives for shipping jobs and profits overseas. i think one place you're going to see a lot of difference is on the issue of tax fairness. >> you also mentioned jobs. there was a "washington post" article yesterday, i'm sure you saw it, when she was running for u.s. senate -- senator here in new york she promised to create 200,000 jobs but -- and "the washington post" said that didn't really pan out. in fact, i think manufacturing jobs went down what 20, 30%, something like that. so if she's going to run on jobs the jobs she tried to create before didn't pan out, did they? >> well, what it really shows us how important it is to have a president who is fighting for jobs and standing up particularly to china on -- when they're violating our trade laws. so during the bush administration, during those eight years our nation lost
millions of manufacturing jobs and she fought very hard and helped get things like the rochester institute for technology, she fought for manufacturing jobs repeatedly. i think one of the reasons to run for president is to stand up to china on steel where they have excess capacity which is dumping, it hurts our steelworkers. and, you know many things like that. not giving them market economy status. we have to be very tough on china. and what you're going to see with her is a tax plan, a tax cut plan that's willing to raise income on the most well off. on the highest earnings in wall street which is very different than what you saw with donald trump where he's saying if you are at the -- an investment banker who with a partnership income, you're going to pay 15%. your marginal rate is going to be lower under donald trump's plan than many middle income families face. lastly, he's going to eliminate
the estate tax. you don't pay any estate tax, not a penny if you have under $11 million a couple. why would he spend $270 billion that could be going to jobs and infrastructure to just give the most well off families this tax break is really very puzzling to me. >> all right. gene sperling, thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having us. we're now going to get the other side of that perspective from peter navarro, economic adviser to the trump campaign and a business professor at the university of california irvine. you heard gene, we heard -- you think you have a reaction to him. >> i just heard gene it's like bernie madoff saying get tough on ponzi schemes when gene said he's going to get tough on china. hear me out here. i got the biggest laugh of the whole campaign when i heard gene sperling was hillary's adviser. he was the guy back in 2002 who
helped bill clinton and jill barsky go to china and help to introduce them to the trade organization, which got us 70,000 factories closed and over 20 million americans out of work. we have seen hillary clinton's economic plan. we have already seen it. it's the south korean free trade agreement. she promised us 70,000 new jobs and we got a doubling -- a doubling of the trade deficit with south korea. short circuit of the truth there. 1993 we have seen hillary clinton's plan, nafta. bill promised us 200,000 jobs and we're down 700,000 jobs. so gene sperling really -- if i were hillary clinton i would have gone back c-span, watched gene sperling talk about china and getting into the world trade organization. he wouldn't be on my economic advisory council. >> well, let's talk about what donald trump rolled out yesterday. you say the key to his plan is that if everything goes according to his plan, we would
have a lot of growth. and that big growth would be in comparison to what we've got right now. that would change everything. >> yeah. what we have is the past 15 years where people like hillary clinton and barack obama look at this problem in keynesian terms and apply fiscal and monetary stimulus, double our debt and screw up the fed balance sheet. and donald trump sees it as handling it through comprehensive tax reform, trade reform, energy policy reform and regulatory reform. that was the beauty of the speech. that was a beautiful speech yesterday because it laid out a comprehensive plan. the goal is to double our gdp growth rate. generate millions of new jobs and generate the tax revenue to pay for the infrastructure and social security and everything in between. that's the philosophy of it. these folks, the clinton people don't understand this. all they want to do is tax the rich. and spend more money that we don't have.
we have seen 15 years of failure. we have the slowest recovery since world war ii with the obama administration. robin hood keynesians is all they are. >> peter navarro, thank you. >> my pleasure. okay. meanwhile your e-mails for donald trump have been pouring in all morning. he was just answering some of them. see what he said, coming up next. and this bride never saw it coming. her groom's dance going viral. the newly famous newlyweds are going to join us. >> who knew he could dance? they could dance.
they are pouring in. and we thank you so much for that. earlier he joined us live to answer them. >> along with stuart. >> mr. trump, here's an e-mail from ellen. gas for cars is cheap now. will you explain how deregulation will lower our electric bills? >> well, it's going to keep it low. one of the problems we have with electric and it's a very big problem, a tremendous problem we can't fuel the plants because our coal is just about being put out of business. a lot of the plants having to reboot and do other things and china is taking our coal. and other people are. but the coal and what they're doing is deregulation is -- has been -- the federal government has made it so hard for natural gas producers, coal producers, that they're driving them out of business. prices are going to go up and it's making them literally impossible. the plants are going to have to
be rebuilt and electric bills will start to go through the roof. it's very sad because the federal government is putting so much pressure on these producers that it is -- it's a very -- you know, i deal with the producers all the time. these are people in many cases substantial people that are going out of business. and electric bills, i'll tell you what, if they're not careful they'll go through the roof. >> nancy has a question for you. what is he going to do about student loan debt? >> so the single biggest problem that i see when i go around especially with the young people is they're going through college, they go to the good college, they work hard, graduate high in their class, number one they can't get a job. the biggest thing i'll get everybody jobs because we're bringing the jobs back. i'm going to bring the jobs back so big league. that's the biggest thing. we're coming without a plan probably in early september to help students with student debt because you know the college costs have gone up so much and they don't watch. because the students are like a conduit to get money from the government because the student
borrows the money and then gives it to the college. the colleges don't care about what their costs are because they -- because the college costs have gone up rapidly. it's because the colleges don't care. because basically the students pay. we'll come out with a plan to help the students because they're suffering with debt. i mean, it's destroying people before they even start. >> mr. trump, i want to get this one in. it's from janet writing in from cleveland. the middle class is being bled by taxes. would you support a payroll tax holiday? >>well, it's something that's being talked about, absolutely. the middle class what we're talking about. we have a big, big tax cut for the middle class already but it's something i'm thinking about. but we have already given under my plan as you know, stuart, we have given a major cut to the middle class. the middle class has been the forgotten class in this country. they built our country. the middle class has been the forgotten class. we have given them a very big one. it is something we're thinking about however. >> all right. finally, a quick one mr. trump,
pam says when will seniors get a social security increase? >> well, we're looking at social security, it's a big problem in our country. i'm the one saving social security, others want to knock it out. but we're looking at social security, the people are not making it on social security. it's a very big problem. we'll take care of it. >> okay. there you have donald trump just about an hour ago. we never had such a response on e-mail and for that we thank you. >> could not keep up. >> all right. meanwhile, next up on the rundown, this bride never saw it coming. ♪ >> her groom surprise dance now going mega viral. the newlyweds will join us live. so cute. let's check in with bill hemmer to find out what's coming out at the top of the hour.

thank you. (girls sing) safelite repair, safelite replace. ...one of many pieces in my i havlife.hma... 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.
