3:03 am
workers of carrier. they will sell many air conditioners. late last night, the company did lift the curtain on negotiations with the transition team that have apparently unfolded over the last several weeks since the election. they said this in part, that the announcement is possible because the incoming trump/pence administration has emphasized to us its commitment to support the business community and create an improved, more competitive u.s. business climate. the incentives offered by the state were an important consideration. and those incentives, which we hope to learn more about today, do seem to have won the incoming president some new fans among those factory workers. >> i was not a huge trump supporter. you know, i didn't really know how to take mr. trump, but i'm glad that he actually lived up to a promise and stuck with it and i'll gladly throw some support to him. and if i get a chance to shake
3:04 am
his hand tomorrow to thank him for saving my job, i'll gladly do that. >> reporter: so this afternoon in indianapolis at the carrier plant it's going to stay open, and the vice president and president-elect will be there with more details. and the transition team says there's more where this came from. back to you. >> live from trump tower where they can apparently smell the big christmas tree. officially, it's called the thank you america tour, but as he stops in indiana to talk to the carrier people, i think it's going to be thank you donald trump, from about 1,000 famil s families, which until a couple days ago, looked like they were going to have a broleak christm. >> he's trying to be a person of action. i'm not just going to say i'll put up policy. he's saying i'll pick up the phone. as a billionaire, you have some power, as donald trumps as a
3:05 am
famous billionaire you have power. and when you run for the nomination you seem to have some power. but when you're actually president-elect for four years, you have not perceived power, actual power. now factor in also, bill ford told him i'm not going to move our plant to mexico. i'm going to keep the lincolns being made in kentucky. he talked to bill gates about keeping microsoft production here and apple ceo tim cook about building a new maplant in the u.s. instead of having everything being done in vietnam and china. you can see this as more of a trend. >> i hope so. carrier got a trillion dollars worst of bad publicity. yesterday at the white house daily press briefing, josh earnest was asked about the jobs, and mr. earnest said this. >> the president-elect has indicated that he deserves credit for that announcement.
3:06 am
and i guess what i would observe is that if he is successful in doing that 804 times he will meet the record of manufacturing jobs that were created in the united states while president obama was in office. there were 805,000 jobs that weren't just protected or saved but actually created while president obama was in office. so president obama has set a high standard. and president-elect trump can meet that standard if this carrier deal is completed. >> it's good to see he's happy for him. >> right, who wouldn't be happy to save jobs? that's great if president obama saved 805,000 jobs. remember how he did that. he did that with the bailout. ford, carrier, these companies were moving to mexico under his watch. trump wasn't even president yet.
3:07 am
>> it will bring people home and want people to build in this country. i'm not saying the ceos are not patriotic, they're trying to maximize their profits for their shareholders and them selves. that's capitalism. you maybe want to tilt it our way with tax reform. >> i'll pick up the phone and call these companies and say stay, and they worked it out over the phone. >> keep in mind the technologies, which is the umbrella that carrier falls under. 10% of the business is with the federal government. and if the guy who runs the federal government says you know what? we don't have to do business with you, we can do business with somebody else. you know what? a lot of plans to move down south could be put on hold. >> remember when donald trump said he wasn't going to eat oreos? that company already left chicago and moved to mexico. now they are saying they're opened to dialog.
3:08 am
he hasn't contacted us, but if he did, we would love to talk to him. maybe some of these that have moved will come back. >> it's good news for barron, he can have oreos again. >> let's talk about the democratic party. they had a huge vote to decide the direction of a party, by all accounts is in tatters. ey've lost the middle class. they've lost the working class, they've lost the middle of the country. it's time to change dress, aire. tim ryan said i don't like the present. the democrats voted yesterday. >> they voted to keep nancy pelosi, even though she's the establishment. so they're not listening to what the country is wanting. >> here's the thing. one third of the democrats in congress voted against her, and she's their leader, that's not good. but nonetheless, nancy pelosi, who is part of the swamp, by the way, was celebrating. watch this. >> i have a special spring in my
3:09 am
step today, because this opportunity is a special one to lead the house democrats, bring everyone together as we go forward. my heart is broken that we did not win the white house this time. that is a pain and not for me personally, but for what it means to the american people. this does afford an opportunity. so that the congressional democrats can go forward. and remove all doubt, that never again will we have an election where there's any doubt in anyone's mind where the democrats are when it comes to america's working families. >> here's the thing about nancy pelosi. under her leadership over the last dozen years or so, ten years or so, they have lost 69 members. in other words, it's tilted toward the republicans. so why they have kept her, you know, she represents a certain moment in time that has now
3:10 am
passed, many say. he had a lot of good ideas. and for the most part, she represents a democratic party that stresses global warming is the biggest threat to the entire planet, rather than jobs here in america, which is what donald trump capitalized on. and we know how well he did. >> and represents the democratic party that lost. >> open wide, we're going to shove obamacare down your throat. kellyanne conway's heart broke for tim ryan. she said what a relief. i had hoped they had learned from the elections to be more cohesive again, many are happy that she's in power. they think she's the problem. we have breaking news to tell you about. >> let's start out with a fox news alert. a police officer in washington state, killed in the line of duty. and right now, his accused killer is barricaded inside a home in tacoma, washington, surrounded by police.

3:19 am
yet you voted for donald trump, why? >> you know, he spoke to me. he hit a chord inside me. he was talking to the working man. he was talking to the middle class. and, you know, we're tired of being the working poor. i mean, you know, we bust our tails for what? you know, companies are getting tax breaks, ceos are getting bonuses, and we're get egg ttin shaft. it's hard to swallow. it's a tough pill sometimes. >> what about the critics who say the president can't do this, pick on one company at a time to make sure that they keep jobs in the united states. i'm sure you would beg to differ, though, because you've got a job. you're going to have a bright christmas, going to be able to keep your family together in the house, because trump did just that. >> he did just that. he's setting precedents for other companies that are possibly thinking about wanting to move south or out of the country all , you know, and what was, i mean, america

3:26 am
about 111,000 sponsorships short for those wreaths. we can get the wreaths made, but we need those $15 sponsorships to help us pay for those wreaths. >> you need 245,000 wreaths to cover every grave at arlington. sadly, it's growing. can we take a step back, wayne? how did this start? >> it started as a tribute to our veterans back in 1992, when a wreath maker in maine found himself with about 5,000 wreaths left over during the old season, and he recalled a trip to washington that he had made as a 12 year old and visited arlington, and he is not a veteran himself, but he wanted to thank the veterans for their, and their families, for their service and sacrifice, so he contacted the cemetery, and said i'd like to bring down these 5,000 wreaths. and the cemetery said nobody'd ever done anything like that
3:27 am
before, but they gave it a chance, and from 1992 to 2005, morrell brought now 5,000 wreaths to pay tribute to the veterans buried there and to honor them and their families for their service and sacrifice. in 2005, there weighsas a pictu taken of the wreaths that were there, in the snow. and an air force photographer put it on the internet, and it went viral. and poli people did not believe this had been going on since 1992. this will be the 25th year. we have over 1200 locations across the country. >> that is such a great story. when i was reading this last night and some of the graves of our fallen heroes could be bare this christmas if folks who are watching do not donate $15 for
3:28 am
wreaths. i know our viewers are so awesome, it won't happen. i know you were talking last year about this same story and the donations started pouring in. >> we appreciate fox putting it out there for us. we want to reach out to the people and make them understand we get no government funding. a lot of people see those thousands of wreaths as they drive by arlington, and they think it's a government project, much like when the military puts the flags down on memorial day. but we receive no government funding. we rely on those $15 sponsorships and donations to help pay for those wreaths. as i mentioned last year, i met a geneman in a section that wasn't, when we weren't able to cover everything, and he asked what about my son? and it really hurt us. but we've been fortunate with the support of the public for the last two years to be able to
3:29 am
cover every marker and although we're short this year we want to continue that. and hopefully we'll get those supportships. >> you can go to our home page and get it. $15, when's the cut-off? >> believe' we've extended the for arlington up to december 14th. that will be when the last truck leaves maine to come down to arlington. >> we were just on the site during the commercial break. fox & friends.com. you'll see the icon right there, brian and i just bought a lot of wreaths for you and hope to help. >> and steve as well. >> wayne hanson, thanks for getting the word we'll track it. coming up, a new name for secretary of state is emerging, a fifth contender to the list. we have the inside story. and the victoria's secret fashion show taking over paris.

3:34 am
year. >> and by the way, trump won. >> he did. >> listen, christmas came two days ago for a thousand carrier employees in indiana who are going to see the president-elect very shortly. meanwhile, the president-elect's been very busy as the cameras have been focussed on the gold elevators at trump tower. a new face is going to emerge tomorrow, potentially a secretary of state candidate, we're talking about john bolton. >> ambassador john bolton, is he a contributor here? >> one of the most dedicated. >> this is a list of contenders that could become the next secretary of state. >> kind of interesting, i was backed off on the radio david petraeus, i thought that was kind of a noteworthy moment. i have not seen much of mayor rudy giuliani, and the first foreign policy person that donald trump mentioned that i can remember about somebody who was impressed with is john
3:35 am
bolton. and one of the critics, lindsey graham, he said you have to have a state department person who wants to go in there and not only represent the country but gut the state department and get them in line. and bolton who knows where the bodies are buried. and he says we could gut two floors of the state department and not miss a soul. >> one of the reasons that donald trump got elected is he's been talking about draining the swamp. the swamp is washington, d.c. of course right now it sounds like president-elect trump's favorite for secretary of state is mitt romney, who said some vicious things about him on the stump and vice versa. newt gingrich was on a radio show yesterday, the laura ingraham show. and he made a connection between mitt romney and remember that movie "pretty woman" >> yes. >> where julia roberts starred as the hooker with a heart of
3:36 am
gold? newt gingrich ties mitt romney to that. >> there's a scene in "pretty woman", where richard geer goes up to the saleswoman on rodeo drive and says we need a little sucking up here. you have never, ever in your career seen a serious adult who's wealthy, independent, been a presidential nominee, suck up at the rate that mitt romney is sucking up. >> talking about that scene from "pretty woman", when she goes shopping and they spend a lot of money. just in case you're not familiar with the movie like every girl in america is, here's the scene. >> okay. >> we're going to be spending an obscene amount of money in here. so we're going to need a lot more help sucking up. >> sir, if i may say so, you're in the right store and the right city for that matter. >> they find so much, and the best line in the movie is when
3:37 am
she goes back to the store that turned her away, and she said "big mistake", as she's holding all her shopping bags, huge. >> it was one of those movies that just made you feel good about being a hooker. >> it's so unrealistic, but it's like a cinderella story. >> that was bigger than "mystic pizza", for julia roberts. i don't think mitt romney was sucking up. he was asked for a second interview to come back for dinner. why is it sucking up? >> tell me what he has said in the past? he has done a complete 180. >> he tweeted out, and now he's sucking up. >> if donald trump picks mitt romney, it says a lot about donald trump's character that we put aside those vicious attacks for the sake of the country. but nonetheless, mitt romney has done a 180. good morning. 37 minutes after the hour, and

state statute. if the government can take a class of speech that it hates or fears, like flag burning and make it illegal, could they make other things likillegal, like criticizing the government? this is a dangerous, slippery slope down which we don't want to go. i was interviewing justice scalia, and i said if you could rewrite the flag burning law, what would you do? he said easy, everybody would go to jail for burning the flag, but i'm not the king. the constitution says can you do what you want with the flag. let's be clear, we're talking about burning your own flag, we're not talking about burning a government flag or somebody else's flag. >> if you take down somebody else's flag. >> that's vandalism. >> if the statutes had prohibited all opened fires for safety purposes. >> that sounds good. >> that's acceptable. but these statutes just targeted
3:49 am
flags. >> why don't we have flags that don't burn. >> i think president-elect trump's going to start giving those out. >> when you talk to these soldiers, they would say, we fight for their right to do that. we don't agree with it. what about when you can't even fly an american flag? >> that is also a suppressing speech, because just as you have the right to burn one, you have the right to display one. and the university -- >> so you're saying they're breaking the law? >> no. if it's private property they can do it. it's condemnable, but it's lawful. >> what has to happen for this to go to the supreme court again to take a look with a fully-staffed supreme skocourt? >> i don't know how it could happen. it would take a legislature to enact the statute and somebody to burn the flag and be prosecuted and make its way again. but the supreme court doesn't
3:50 am
like to change its mind with the political winds, because then it loses credibility and appears to be another political branch of the government. >> unless the law itself is changed. and that's a whole different. >> can we make it mandatory that the people who burn the flag have to go to christmas dinner at someone's house who's lost their lives for protecting us? >> that's brilliant. still ahead, the stars of the show fixer-upper under fire for their faith. the liberal media. judgeo say hello.

4:08 am
president-elect. you've done more in first three weeks of being elected than the last -- than the current administration has done in the last nine months for us. for anybody really. i mean, you know, we're out here to make a living. we're out here to do the right thing. we're loyal to the company. we work hard for the company, and for what? so you could pick up and leave us? i mean, that goes for any company out there. we're tired of being the working poor. you know, we bust our tails for what? you know. companies are getting tax breaks, ceos are getting bonuses, and we're getting the shaft, and, you know, it's hard to swallow. i mean, it's a tough pill sometimes. >> go ahead, brian. >> these are people who have worked in these jobs. they don't necessarily love their jobs. they have really long hours. they have been there at companies like this for like 20 years. they build up a 401(k) so they can retire and the company moves to mexico. this is amazing because they are saving christmas for so many of these families, for 1,000 people
4:09 am
at least. they are hard working americans, that guy right there never voted republican ever in his life, until this election. >> you have to make products that people can afford. if carrier has to jack up the prices on their products and lose the competitive edge, then there will be some blowback. however, if you are able to cut corporate taxes and make it pat latible -- palatable to build things in this country, one thing can build on another. >> when i was meeting with a publisher about the children's book. i got a copy of that. it made made in china. i said absolutely not and said this book has to be made in america. i said it has to be made in america. i want this. we need books printed here. we need industries, we need all of this money to stay in america.

4:12 am
tucker was asking simple questions. there is no evidence there's been hacking. what are you going to do with the money? it was quite an exchange. we wanted to play some of it for you this morning. >> will you pledge here right now that that money will only go to recount efforts? is that none of it will be spent for party activities or future campaigns? >> that money will be used for this recount, future recount or election integrity efforts. >> whatever that means. i don't know what that means. that doesn't satisfy my question. let me ask you this once more. how exactly could these machines be hacked? since you raised the possibility and your candidate. >> i don't know how. i don't know if. i know they have been in the past and because they have been in the past, it is reasonable to have concern. >> keep in mind the white house in the form of josh earnest two days ago said the federal government, the vas resources of the federal government have
4:13 am
detected zero chance -- they detected that nobody tried to hack into the election a couple of weeks ago, so the white house is poo-poo'ing it. nonetheless, full steam ahead. >> hillary for america is now hands on asking for volunteers to help in michigan. i thought she didn't contest the election, why are they spending money to recount the election? >> maybe she's a sore loser behind the scenes? >> maybe they will use the money to make sure dead people aren't voting. >> maybe. what do you think, email us at "fox & friends." the president-elect's cabinet take shape, can those names be used to predict the rest of the team. lisa is here with the possibilities next. a 25 year tradition in danger of going extinct.

5:10 am
there are almost 70,000 employees of the state department worldwide, so it's a pretty big bureaucracy and over the years, it's gotten the attitude that they are not there necessarily to follow what the president wants to do in foreign policy, that they are there to run foreign policy themselves. very similar to the attitude of foreign ministries in major european countries. i think as secretary of state has to follow what jim bakker said back in the george h.w. bush administration. he said it publicly even before he went over. he said i will be the president's envoy to the state department and not the other way around. >> and that's what you want -- >> what are the duties of the secretary of state? >> well, primarily to advise the president on national security issues, to come up with suggestions for grand strategy for the united states to maintain america's place in the world that is critical to safeguarding our way of life here at home, and then to carry
5:11 am
that policy out through diplomacy and all the other tools that we have available. i think it's important to understand -- the state department is not just a diplomatic place. it's a political place, and again, to just look at jim bakker, his memoir was call the politics of diplomacy, that title alone tells you a lot about what the job involves. >> ambassador john bolton will be meeting with president-elect donald trump tomorrow. thank you for joining us live today. good luck. >> you're very kind. i'll see peter outside the building maybe. >> he's directing traffic, i think. the first name donald trump mentioned who you look to for foreign policy, it was bolton. i like what he has to say. that must mean something. if you want, you can provide the clip to you and you can go in there and remind him what he said in 2015. >> you are very kind to think of me. >> they are down to the final

somewhere where they have no idea where the notes are, they have nothing. so these people still owe the money on the home, want to move on with their life, but when you pull their credit report, it shows the debt owed and it's still titled in their name. they can't get anybody to listen to them. it's still a problem in our country. we need to wake them up, say lenders, servicers, please, these people want to move on. take the homes back. do what we call deeds in lieu of fore closure. >> tes putting a lot of emphasis on infrastructure. are you feeling positive about donald trump helping the housing market in the future? >> could not have anybody better along with his incredible children to understand the housing market and the last thing, ainsley, is this loan modification issue which ties into what you are saying. loan modifications are going to mature next year. here's what that means real quick. a lot of people are paying like
5:27 am
interest only payments. next year, a lot of them were five-year modifications and the fifth year they lock in for 30, 40 years. they are going to convert to principal and interest which means their payments could double, which means fore closures against and short sales. got to change change it. i bought your book for my youngest two-year-old grandson. it's amazing. >> give that grandchild a hug for us. >> i love him to death. absolutely. >> it is a new challenge. burning the american flag. why are these protesters so mad? because of a tweet from president-elect? and it's a pop quiz, what is the proper way for a giraffe to wear a neck tie? look at that. it's an intense debate. stick around and we'll explain.

5:34 am
my pension is going to be done. >> i'm going to lose my house. >> how am i going to put food on the table? it's christmas season. >> the president-elect indicated he deserves credit for that announcement. if he is successful in doing that 804 more times, then he will meet the record of manufacturing jobs that were created in the united states while president obama was in office. there are 805,000 manufacturing jobs that weren't just protected or saved, but actually created while president obama was in office, so president obama has set a high standard and president-elect trump can meet that standard if this carrier deal is completed. >> here's the thing, mr. ernest, with all due respect, donald
5:35 am
trump saved a thousand jobs and he's not even president yet. >> that's right. >> i wonder how many of the white house press corps numbers sitting there at the white house were thinking, you know, i'm just sitting here and looking at josh earnest, i wish there was a pony ride? >> and with all due respect, those thousands of jobs that he save were going down to mexico during the obama administration, and guess how he saved all those 800,000 jobs? through your taxpayer dollars with the stimulus. >> one thing he's doing is using his contacts with people we can't get on the phone. tim cook, bill gates, started microsoft, as well as what he's done with his relationship with and he's trying to get them to keep manufacturing here. >> ford. lincoln is going to stay, the lincoln division is going to stay in kentucky. the nabisco company that moved down to mexico, they are saying, mr. trump, we might be interested in coming back to america. >> there are three other

5:45 am
the message from voters that the status quo is not going to cut it. >> he's quoted as saying, this is becoming a coastal party, a regional party. he's concerned about losing a lot of these blue collar voters. are you? >> i am. and the irony here is that a lot of our economic policies are great for working class families, they expand the middle class. a lot of trump's tax cuts that will dramatically increase our deficit just go to the wealthy few, and so we actually have some great policies and yet our message is failing to resonate with middle america, so we've got a lot of work to do and we've got to question whether we have the right message and whether we have the right messagers. >> after the last eight years, hite house has done, made it tough for hillary clinton to win, in the big picture, how much is nancy pelosi to blame for this and how much is barack obama to blame for the state of the democratic party? >> you know, there's a lot of blame to go around, but the most
5:46 am
important thing is we've got to take responsibility for our failures and i'm really new to politics, but i was a marine platoon commander for several years and my job description was very simple. it was one sentence. you are responsible for everything your platoon does or fails to do. full stop. well, we failed in this last election. our election results have been terrible over the last four election cycles or more, and so we've got to take responsibility for that, and there aren't many party leaders who are standing up and taking responsibility and saying here's a new strategy, here's a new way forward. we've got to make some change. >> something did change. she needs a lot of people on the leadership to expand beyond those in their 70s. how come you weren't on this list? you and congressman ryan should be on the list. >> the problem is that she's added all these positions, but she just made them appointed positions, so she can still control who sits in those seats, and what the sentiment of the
5:47 am
caucus i think is we need to have elected positions. after this vote yesterday where a third of the caucus voted against her, she came out late last night with a slate of proposed changes that will turn many of these appointed positions into elected positions so that we can hear more voices from our party, voices from middle america, voices from younger members of our party, not just the old guard. so it's an important step in the right direction. >> i always think it's great when we get men and women who serve in the armed forces so then serve in washington, and thanks so much for doing that, congressman. i appreciate you joining me this morning. >> thank you. >> all right. and we'll find out the directions of the democratic party. it's a crucial time for them. her father was the king of cool and one of the most iconic voices of all time. many say the nicest guy you will ever meet. dean martin's daughter, deana martin is revealing a big family secret. her dad's favorite meal. talk about great guys, bill
