[ laughter ] he slipped a disk. >> hey, good morning, everyone. welcome to "fox & friends" on this saturday morning, abby, pete, clayton, good to see you this morning. >> good to see you, too. >> i was with the kids at the zoo. christmas tree lighting thing and decorate the whole zoo. i get an alert sent to me on my watch from the "new york
3:02 am
times" app. as if it was breaking news, huge story last night. enough that they would send me an alert on my watch that the world was about to end because how trump's calls to world leaders is going to upset decades of diplomacy because taking a phone call from taiwan. >> that's exactly right. a long relationship with china with the island of taiwan. which is -- we have had strained relationships with. we have one china policy. we can get into the details. we don't have to. the reality is donald trump took a phone call from the president of taiwan. and she was newly elected and a little bit more independent minded. as he has entertaining world leaders as they come across. if you listen to the media coverage of that conversation you would have thought the world was ending. >> i was at dinner with my parents last night, too. it was trending on twitter. you mentioned the "new york times" headline from. politico bowl in a china chop trump risks diplomatic relationship in china. did trump just cause
3:03 am
diplomatic crisis in taiwan. trump risks show down with china after call with taiwan. >> chris murphy tweeting this, what has happened the last 48 hours is not a shift. these are major pivots in foreign policy without any plan, that's how wars start. donald trump defending. this this was just a phone call. she called me to congratulate me on becoming president of the united states. it was a simple, nice phone call. he said this the president of taiwan called me today to wish me congratulations on winning the presidency. he also congratulated her on becoming the president. >> he also noted in the second tweet how the u.s. sells taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but i should not accept a congratulatory call? china isn't recognized. taiwan is independent island. taiwan wants more freedom from china. it's very complicated. >> we defended their sovereignty in the past. a guy like chris maury i murphye fancies himself as -- he is
3:04 am
the president-elect. taking phone calls from world leaders. not going to start world war iii. having a conversation with people reaching out to him. >> i spent a lot of time living over in beijing. i think everyone needs to calm down. an example of what has played out the entire campaign. the minute donald trump does something a little different than someone in the past which is also one of the reasons people like mr. trump. they go on this frnsy and make it sound like this world is coming to an end starting world war 3. let me clarify we are not going to war. nothing is probably going to happen from. this if anything, i think many people find this sort of thing refreshing from president-elect donald trump. you think about taiwan and their values and how they are much more lioned up with american values. that being said, is he not sworn in yet. better understanding of china, taiwan. it is a very delicate balance. number one trading partner. >> he was critical of china
3:05 am
throughout the entire campaign. media wants to paint him as a little bit of a loose cannon. going to take phone calls from taiwan now? this is out of control. >> this headline trump sides with free democratic country, small d democratic country communists freak out. in what world is that a bad thing? i understand the trading partner side. they are trying to discredit him which is exactly what it is. he is taking phone calls and engaging in conversation. little bit of uncertain at this and shuffle. is he a negotiator. you don't want china to think you are going to fall into the old patterns. i think that's part of it, too. he is not taking this phone call by accident. receiving, appreciate it, i'm sure. he and his advisors know what they're doing. >> how about when president obama renewed relationships with cuba, remember that recently? was there this hysteria. i always try to put mr. trump in someone's past shoes to get a better sense of hypocrisy. >> let's do that on this next story. >> over the past few days
3:06 am
the carrier story out of indiana has made headlines. interesting to watch how the left has responded to this story. because this is particularly the area where the left praised president obama in sort of picking winners in jobs. >> solyndra. >> picking different solar companies. and the left, i have seen, over the past few days has actually been praising president-elect trump for this move carrier plants. then you have people like sarah palin coming out writing opinion pieces slamming president-elect trump for this move trying to save jobs. saying this is crony capitalism. that the government should not be in the business of picking winners and losers in these sort of back room deals. president-elect trump is at it again with another company this morning. >> no. listen, you can make arguments both ways. and people have. but the reality is donald trump became president-elect and carrier keep jobs here and people like that and want that. they want those jobs here. he tweeted yesterday about another company in indiana which is about a mile down the road from carrier called
3:07 am
rexnord. i believe they manufacture roll herbal bearings of indiana is moving to mexico and rather viciously firing all of its 300 workers. this is happening all over our country. no more. he hasn't talked more about what that's going to mean. the signal is still clear. >> that's right. >> we're going to change the policies and i will interfeign individually with companies to make sure they stay here and to the american worker and people who elected them. >> these 1100 carrier employees this like christmas to them. >> they thought they werelessing their jobs. >> they don't have to worry about losing their jobs and know how they are going to put christmas presents under the tree this year this holiday season. it's interesting to see what sort of deals. is the president-elect going to be doing this all over the country individually with different companies? you have sarah palin saying this is not the president's job to pick out winners and losers. >> you have to figure out the best value. you want to incentivize companies to keep jobs here. you don't want to threaten.
3:08 am
>> but how? because when you look at the company that runs carrier, they have defense contracts. if you going to move these 1100 jobs to mexico, well, you know that defense contract that you were going to be receiving millions of dollars in, that will dry up. >> trump is siding on the side of business not regulation. so what you had with obama before was ideological interest on climate change and regulatory interests that he was focused. it wasn't a pro-business agenda and shoe horning things. trump says i want to open it up and make it competitive. i want to make sure rexnord and carrier have a competitive environment so they don't go to to mexico and pay 2.50 an hour. he is trying to stem the tide. >> what he was tweeting about and what we are faced with today are lost jobs. you think from 2,000 we have lost 5 million manufacturing jobs. that's because they have gone overseas also because of robots taking over a lot of jobs that people have done for years and years. that's going to be one of mr. trump's biggest challenges. how do you get these companies to keep these jobs
3:09 am
here at home. >> if apple wants to shift united states. >> this is political debate it will continue. obviously another side of this argument. which are the democrats, which traditionally fancy themselves the party of the working man. they are in disarray themselves. >> they are? >> you didn't get the headlines? >> donors saying basically wait a second we don't know where to put your money. you are asking us to help rebuild a party you? totally let us did you know. howard dean has dropped his bid. i think the democrats thought that howard dean was going to be the knight coming in riding on the back of a white horse. >> if that's your white knight. >> he is saying we need to get someone build up from a grass roots level. he is right about that. that's where they got wrong last campaign is grass roots level. >> they have hit rock bottom. >> he hit rock bottom. their number two keith ellison is under for
3:10 am
anti-semitic comments he has made about israel and controlling foreign policy. we will get into that little bit more in the show. is he a far left hardliner associated with far left groups including anti-semitic groups made comments about having segregated in the south. as a minnesota tan the guy son the fringes and associates with interesting groups. >> they need to start fresh. >> that's not a fresh start. >> always better to start fresh. >> let us know all these things have you been talking about this morning. great debate on the show. >> we do have other headlines to get to. beginning with a fox news alert. this is a sad story. a horrific bus crash in texas smashing into into 18-wheeler sending high school cheer loaders to the high school returning from the football team in west texas. two of those teens in critical condition. two others in serious condition. texas state troopers aren the scene trying to figure out what exactly went wrong. we will keep a close eye on that one. we traded him for five of the taliban's worse but now

3:18 am
telling you, it's been fascinating what i call almost suspenseful decision-making process coming out of the trump tower for the secretary of defense. i do believe that john bolton actually would be a very solid pick for a donald trump. he has experience as diplomat. worked within the state department as well as the united nations. and i also think he has a very clear understanding of america first in terms of national security. with that being said, you know, rudy giuliani obviously is in a very solid position to get the slot. because he has been a trump loyal list. i think though he does come with bit of baggage as does general petraeus. it becomes a little bit complicated as to where donald trump what he is thinking in terms of what he wants as a top diplomatic official. >> a name you haven't mentioned yet mitt romney.
3:19 am
where does he fit into this intrigue. this picture he looked totally bewildered in this picture. what is going on here with romney? >> we lost audio. she didn't want to talk about romney. >> you bring up a good point in that there is criticism over mitt romney just because he basically called mr. trump a con artist and hit on his character but also because of their foreign policy differences. i think we have mercedes back with us. >> we have the satellite back with us, we were asking about romney. >> it was the russians, i tell you the russians took me off. >> what do you think of that. >> on romney, i find that there is parts of it in terms of me from the public standpoint, for example, loyalists have sent a clear message to mr. trump say would he go don't want romney as secretary of state. he insulted you. he was obviously one of your most outspoken critics in the campaign trail. what i have seen and what i have enjoyed seeing in this
3:20 am
process is the fact that trump has taken the time to meet with romney and have that discussion. i think that has actually been a positive step in helping to heal the party, the republican party. >> just quickly, what are the chances that there may be some in the mix that we don't even know yet? >> it's interesting, we just heard the name of rex tillerson who is the ceo of exxon as being a potential dark horse. i think that's unlikely. the names you are seeing are going to be the picks. >> thank you. >> when it comes to immigration the state department has praised the background system. what if we told you it was never turned on? >> major clash between the clinton and trump campaigns as the clinton camp accuses its challengers of winning on white supremacy. did democrats learn anything from the election? a fair and balanced debate is coming up. ♪ singing we will, we will rock you ♪ we will, we will, rock you

perper at the throughout blaminperpetuityblaming. >> they have not learned a lesson. ran on a campaign of bringing americans together. they ran on a campaign of america first. and that is why they won. they did not divide us up as we have been divided up in the last eight years. they got the votes of different genders, different races, different creeds, different religions. and they did so by talking about the things that make americans, you know, think. the economy, education, build that wall, second amendment. nafta deals. all the things that if you are an american you are concerned about. and so had the democratic party spoken to americans about the issues that we are concerned about, hillary clinton might be the one going in on january 27th and not donald j. trump our president-elect. >> jehmu, we heard that
3:27 am
trump supporters were a basket of deplorables and every isms. felt like that's what the clinton camp thought as well. >> post assessment done every year at harvard. i think it makes perfect sense for people who gave two years of their life and more years, probably for many of them, to an effort that actually had more voters vote for their candidate than the person who won around 2.5 million, i think is where we are at. >> were in the wrong places but sure. >> it makes perfect sense for them to still be passionate about the issues that they thought weren't covered or how they were covered. what we need to do right now is move forward as a country that is not divided and that's where i. >> passion is one thing. >> donald trump -- >> is there no intraspeculation and no reflection that maybe we had a flawed candidate or a
3:28 am
flawed approach or we weren't talking on the issues instead they are blaming the other side of racism. no intraspeculation as well? >> i think there is a lot of intraspeculation going on and should go on on both sides. should go on within the media. but when it comes to assessing what we just went through with the 2016 presidential election, it would be completely flawed to negate the impact of white supremacy. >> okay. >> and it is. >> if i may respond to that. >> please. >> what i would say is this. steve ba bannon is a patriot. he saw our jobs going overseas and leave the country. he saw americans were being mistreated and treated like second class citizen in our country and got on board the trump train. the same reason i got on board the trump train. i wanted to put america first. so did steve bannon. okay. the only party that i
3:29 am
believe that he is concerned with as a nationalist is the tpcc party. tired of politicians, corruption and classism. if that makes him a racist, if that makes me a racist. then sign me up. but americans were tired of the dividing. we're tired of the hurt. we want to heal. and that's what we are going to do under our vice president elect and our president-elect donald j. trump. we're going to move forward in the future as americans, as a nation healing. healing. >> >> jehmu only a couple seconds here she is saying appealing to the common values and virtues that's not racism. >> it's hard to respond to diatribe like that. the reality is. >> it's easy when you are a patriot. it's easy when you love this country. >> we had white supremacists more engaged in this president's election than we have seen in our lifetime. that's a fact. now, do we need to move on from that? of course. as democrats, do we have to assess how we can better communicate our message? it was very difficult to get
3:30 am
any sort of message out in the atmosphere where donald trump sucked up all the oxygen. that's the relates. that's not what we should be. >> >> talking about americans how we move forward responsibly and unfortunately we are not seeing that level of response. >> we have to leave it there. >> god bless you and god bless america. >> god bless you both and god bless america. >> amen. i receive it, amen. >> oh god. >> thanks for having us. >> you can say the "new york times" was a little biased during the election season. we just talked about election coverage. maybe there was media biased toward the hillary clinton. our friend tucker carlson confronted their editor about it. >> democrats, students and foreign allies faced the reality of a trump presidency. if you succeeded trump candidacy with the terminal cancer diagnosis it would

>> welcome back to "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. i think over the past few months it's no secret that we played a lot of headlines from the "new york times" where they seemed out of touch with the rest of the country. and they came out a few weeks ago and seemed to strike a bit of a conciliatory tone in a way where it was as if they realized okay we need to reassess. >> half apology apology. they bleed readers on their balance sheet we kind of apologize but we actually felt we weren't that biased except they know internally if they are being honest they had the finger on the scale the entire election. >> tucker carlson only the way can he had their public editor on the show last night and took them head on. watch this. >> it makes no sense to me in terms of what the "new york times" claims it is and wants to be and as you say, their business model. why would you cut off half of america and make them feel like this is not their "new york times." that comes from being in new
3:36 am
york. being in a certain circle, and seeing the world a certain way. not being in touch with. >> right. >> people who don't live like them or don't live in cities and who are the ones that elected donald trump to the presidency. >> right. now, when you say that the journalists who walk in the front door of the "times" building are doing their best to be fair, i would believe you except for a fact i know that's not true because i read their twitter feeds. here is one. november 15th. pardon me for asking you about what qualifies jared curbner to have a seat at the presidential table? there is eric lipton another reporter. white house's qbc it has started. new president from reality television a cabinet selection that resembles a pageant. are you kidding? these are news reporters saying this stuff. >> everybody is going to have their personal political views, we all do. they ought to be personal. and if you sign up to be a journalist, then that's what you ought to be. >> interesting. i got to be honest, she was
3:37 am
fairly forth right at the beginning and saying. >> spot on. >> we live in a bubble. you live in new york you see the world differently from americans that elected donald j. trump. >> high rise building on the city skyscraper looking down at the rest of the world. it's a different world out there. >> you can imagine that job look at the reporters and the coverage of the paper and critique it and you realize how wrong you got it and listen to everyone at the pa been so biased but you know it and they employ you? not an easy position. >> that's why tucker carlson is so good. go through twitter account. >> well done tucker carlson as always. >> we do have other headlines to get to. we start with this. embarrassing flaw in the u.s. immigration system so bad that it now has all new citizenship ceremonies on hold. the chairman of the house judiciary committee bob gold lat demanding found what's being called a major security flaw in the system
3:38 am
used for background system. that has failed for a number of people seeking citizenship. asking homeland security to find out how many people have slipped through the cracks. and democrats digging trenches. signaling they may secretary of defense. retired general james mad dog mattis needs to get a waiver to take on that new position since he left service just four years ago. you need to be out, what, seven years. >> yep. >> the dems are ready for a fight on this. 8 democrats would need to join the republicans to reach the threshold of 60 to approve of that pick. this is a story that sparked national outrage. the college that banned the american flag from campus nowfullying our symbol of freedom once again. the president of hampshire college in massachusetts first lowered the flag to mourn hillary clinton's election loss. later took down that flag after it was set on fire when president-elect trump won. after two weeks of protesting, the president did change his mind saying
3:39 am
the flag can, in fact, fly at full staff. but only because he wants the hate threats to stop. >> they use flag to mourn like she died. >> also why do i not -- >> -- i hate that story. >> why do i not feel that james mattis is scared of trench from held brand. >> 2 a year tradition now in danger of going extinct. >> tens of thousands of graves at arlington national security could go without a wreath on christmas. you can change that here so explain is the chairman of the board for wreeteds across america. sir, thank you for joining us this morning. it's such an honorable mission that you have. tell us about what you do and the short fall that can you recollectly exists? >> well, as you know, wreaths across america is a nonprofit organization that reaches out to honor and remember our veterans buried not only just at arlington but in 1200 locations across the nation. but our concern right now is with arlington. i consider that our nation's
3:40 am
national cemetery. and right now, we're looking at a shortage of sponsorships for about 68,300 wreaths in order to allow us to cover every marker. >> what is the response from the families who get to see these wreaths? >> it's amazing. what it means though those people when you see them down there, the ones that are not able to come to arlington and they see the volunteers come out by the thousands to help us put those wreaths down in honor and remember their veterans for their service and sacrifice. >> wayne, what can people do? what can we all do to make sure that every one of our fellow soldiers has a wreath on their grave stone? >> right now, it's just a matter of reaching into those purses and pocketbooks and taking out $15. it's only $15 to sponsor a wreath. we need a little over 68,000
3:41 am
will be place those markers on arlington and nobody will be forgotten. >> if you go over to foxandfriends.com right now. we have very generous viewers who will support. this if you go to foxandfriends.com. there is a marker on our website where people can donate $15 to get a wreath. >> right on the front of our page. >> i speak for a lot of americans when i say that act of symbolism on this day with those wreaths to those men and women in arlington means a ton. says so much about the character of our nation. so thank you very much for what you do. >> thank you for having us. and for the support. >> thank you, wayne. >> coming up here on the show. activists angry about the election results setting fire to american flags. our next guest fought for that flag alongside the "american sniper" chris keil. is he here with what those protesters don't understand. >> you have heard about plecket donald trump delivering on a campaign promise to save 1100 american jobs at the carrier plant in indiana. wait until you hear one of the personal stories from one of those workers and what it meant to him

3:53 am
misthat point. two, woe look at veterans because we have sacrificed a lot. a lot have sacrificed on the war on terror in previous wars. and it hurts, and it's an questionerring and infuriating to see these flags burn. the flag is a symbol of all of us. and the people that protect us and our laws. police officers, firefighters, ems. parents who raise their kids our way of life. this flag is representative of them. so when people disgrace it, burn it, trash it, you know, it makes us angry and really no question as to why donald trump won. patriotism is alive and well in this country. when we see it burned and stomped, it makes us angry. >> you're right. and it makes the new president-elect angry as well. this is what donald trump had to say about flag burning and consequences. take a listen. >> do you agree with my stance that if people burn the american flag they there should be consequences? >> kevin, you have worn that flag, that patch on your shoulder as have many of our generation, do you agree?
3:54 am
do you think there should be consequences for desecrating the flag? >> this is a tough one to answer. i know it's the right to burn the flag if they want to. but it doesn't make it right. i think there is a big difference with that. i really don't think we should infringe first amendment right of freedom of speech. at the same time, there is respect for others. i think that's what sets us apart from a lot of parts of this world. and the flag is a representative of we as a people. and you know, to have respect for your fellow man, some of it should be to understand what the flag means to all of americans. so, you know, think about that before you light fire to it. >> we also want your take this morning on general james mad dog mad diswho served with navy seal as well. it seems like what you said, pete from the military community is he someone very beloved. >> absolutely, you have to go on social media and instagram. the memes are unbelievable for mattis. he does two things strikes
3:55 am
fear in the heart of the enemies. that's what we need as a secretary of defense. and, two, he has respect for his men. and, you know, i truly believe ash carter is a great man but is he a physicist. is he intellect. mad dog has studied war on the subatomic level. that's exactly what we need. we need somebody who has been there, done thament and take the fight to the enemy and inspire our military to go abroad and win. we have lost that and mad dog really brings that to the table. >> kevin, such a great point. war fighter. deployed several times seeing the enemy. what does it do for the morale to see a guy like mattis at the top. >> it's huge. pete talked about how we are back at the same places we were in 2006 and 2003. we're back to those same places. infuriating for us that have been there. to have mad dog at the head. the war -- head at the secretary of defense is huge. inspires people to go forward. that's what we need to. we need to go ahead and lead instead of taking a
3:56 am
backseat. >> speaking of morale, pete. >> what does this do for next generation coming up encouraging them to step up and serve? that's been a problem in previous years to motivate and say i want to serve for mad dog mattis and i want to serve this country? >> it's huge. donald trump was laughed at on the campaign trail saying i know more about isis than anybody else. what he had in his back pocket is general mattis. he knows the enemy. and people want to fight for somebody who knows what's going on. the last time i spoke with general mattis was earlier this year. and he was on his way to the middle east. and he knows the enemy. and he inspires his men. he inspires his marines, soldiers, sailors, airmen. that's what we need. the younger generation couldn't have a better secretary of defense in general mattis. >> i love it? >> well said. kevin, thanks for joining thus morning and for your service. we appreciate it. >> thank you so much. >> there is a good chance he could be named america's top diplomat. were takes us inside that meeting next hour.

4:02 am
speaking friday with the president of taiwan. first president to do this in nearly four decades that. >> phone call now has many on the left in an uproar. gate tenney in washington with the reaction on this phone call. good morning, garrett. >> hey, good morning, clayton, abby and pete. this is the latest example of president-elect donald trump fulfilling his promise to shake things up in washington. on its face it may seem like a bit of an uproar over a simple phone call. this is the first time since 1979 that a u.s. president or president-elect has spoken to a taiwanese leader. are central relationship with china. china regards the island as part of its territory while taiwan claims its independence. and since 1979, the u.s.' official position is somewhere in the middle. the concern among some democrats and foreign policy experts is that china could interpret yesterday's phone call with taiwa taiwanese presit change on the issue.
4:03 am
yesterday patrick murphy tweeted his criticisms saying what has happened in the last 48 hours is not a shift. these are major pivots in foreign policy without any plan. that's how wars start. the president-elect responded to his critics tweeting the president of taiwan called me today to wish me congratulations on winning the presidency. thank you. he continued interesting how the u.s. sells taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but i should not accept a congratulatory call. now the trump transition team has not indicated if this phone call with taiwan is any indication of future changes in u.s. policy. but stressed that mr. trump is taking calls from leaders across the globe. clayton, abby, pete. >> all right. thank you, garrett. >> look at these headlines last night. like all of these -- all of the major mainstream media websites last night were thinking we're like literally on the brink of war. here is the "new york times" on this phone call how
4:04 am
trump's calls upsetting decades of diplomacy. >> that's right. politico says bull in a china shop trump risks diplomatic blow up in asia. >> "l.a. times" says trump just caused diplomat i can crisis over taiwan. best one cnn. trump risks show down with china after call with taiwan. just to be clear we are not going to world war iii. >> this isn't iran. not on the brink of nuclear war here. a phone call he accepts from and he mentioned this in a tweet. he said, look, i accepted a phone call. she called me to congratulate me about becoming president of the united states so i congratulated her. >> indeed. a democratic country at this tri we have had relationships with. if the communist chinese are mad about it i'm not sad. >> we funneled billions of dollars in weaponry to taiwan to protect itself. we see it as a sovereign country. >> i love that as a follow-up tweet. >> this is part of the reason people really do like mr. trump and why they voted for him because he doesn't always follow the rules and doesn't do things exactly
4:05 am
like a normal politician would do. and so when this case did he do something different. it hasn't been done in years and years. this is a very sensitive relationship. i spent a lot of years living in china. and i do think that going forward he is notten -- it's okay he made that call just saying thank you. about as harmless as it gets. >> you want these relationships in the world no doubt. >> most important trading issue that we have. you have to make sure we walk that line more delicately. he will figure that out in time once he gets to office. >> delicate balance of jobs and trade has been forefront plaintiff trump's candace. sapping jobs from the united states. mexico is pulling jobs from the united states. he, of course, during the campaign went after carrier. you remember the company out of indiana that was about to send thousands of jobs to mexico. we know what unfolded over the past few days. he went, in intervened and saved those thousand jobs that are there. he has his eyes on a new company about a mile down the road from carrier. >> turns out folks protesting at a company called rexnord we are losing
4:06 am
jobs as well. rexnord of indiana is moving to mexico and rather viciously firing allful its 300 workers. this is happening all over our country no more. he uses the word viciously. remember the video of the carrier employees leaving. it is a heartless process. he says it is happening at rexnord may be helping elsewhere. county policies be put in place so over time the economic environment changes so these companies make this decision on their own. >> that's a great point to. his tweet there, we are losing a lot of jobs. whether it's to overseas or to robots or other things. he has to figure out a way to talk to these ceos. we have heard that ford is now talking about working with mr. trump. making it so they are incent phase advised. verses. everyone has egos involved in these conversations, right? >> that's a great point. the threatening versus the underlying economics. right now is he not even president yet. it's like putting a band-aid on a wound right now, it seems. he tweeted this the other
4:07 am
day. or he said this, mr. trump did. companies are not going it leave the u.s. anymore without consequences. so there will be consequences. what are those consequences. in the case of carrier. critics are saying look, the carrier. what happen do you think closed doors meetings meant. defense contracts could dry up if you want to send these jobs. it's probably in their best interest to keep those thousand jobs here so that big defense contracts don't dry up. those would be the consequences he is perhaps talking about. that is the wound, that is the band-aid there needs to be a broader solution beyond just that ban band-aid. >> sea pro-business. that's a good thing. if you want jobs to stay in this country, new sheriff is in town who is going to have over time the opportunity to enact those policies. right now is he dealing with very antibusiness, pro-regulatory environment pushing jobs overseas. he will have the chance to
4:08 am
change that if american companies are keeping people here that's a good thing. >> one thing can he do as president that's a huge thing. we have heard from some of these employees at carrier to. hear the personal side. you were asking about christmas coming up and saying my job was saved. my family is going to have a real christmas this year. that's when it is real and you realize how many jobs are on the line out there. many jobs that have been lost. >> jobs were a big topic of this election. the debate happened just a couple days ago at harvard as well. kennedy school of government. i went there. went to some these types of forums where they discuss in debate what happened at the election. every four years the gains come and discuss about the fallout of the election. kellyanne conway was there jen palmiery was there they debated why did donald trump win and why did hillary clinton lose? and usually is a polite nice discussion among folks. it wasn't. it blew up. and this is the back and forth that happened.
4:09 am
>> they debated this on "the view." every afternoon i'm tebowing this on theview. >> how did it go. >> talked about cultural things first but then dove into this subject. sarah haines and joy behar are the democrats being sore losers right now they actually agree. watch. >> i don't think they ran a racist campaign but when she says are you going to look at me and say we gave a platform to white supremacists. >> right. >> that is a fact. it doesn't mean that everyone that voted for trump is a racist. [ applause ] >> but all whoopi says over and over all the racists
4:10 am
vetted for trump. so i think the fact that you won, just be honest. >> yes we're sore losers because a lot of the reason he won was based on racism, the russian hacking, lies, continuous lying that went on. and the intrusion of the fbi at the last minute there. all of that seems to have basically distorted the whole election. so yeah we're sore losers because it wasn't really won legitimately as far as i'm concerned. >> wasn't won legitimately. >> that's not accepting the results if you aren't willing to admit that he actually won on a legitimate basis. >> 200 counties that flipped from obama voting from blue to red over this election? >> all three ofs have you spent time in diners across the country where the real voters are versus pundits that sit on these morning shows that aren't connected with the people out in the rest of the country. and you hear from them and you understand how mr. trump won and the issues they care about. it was legitimate because they were the ones that got out and vote and they were
4:11 am
passionate about the issues. >> they aren't white supremacists. they aren't racist. they want their job and their country back and they want their family to be secured. isis destroyed. their border to actually mean something. those are issues. at the left joy behar and everyone else saying just a bunch of racist. they will never learn the lessons of this election cycle which is why hillary clinton lost. >> hillary clinton comes in and talks about leonardo decaprio and global warming. the message didn't says son nate. we have disconnect. >> starting with this election officials in michigan will start recounting votes as early as tuesday. this despite president-elect donald trump filing a lawsuit to block that challenge spearheaded by green party candidate jill stein. the election board deadlocked on his request allowing the recount to move forward. recounting votes in michigan and wisconsin. pennsylvania. and will all cost taxpayers millions of dollars. and there is one less contender in the race for the dnc chairman. >> we're going to
4:12 am
washington, d.c. to take back the white house. ya! >> you all remember that and surprise video announcement howard dean says he is out. >> i am not going to be the candidate for the democratic national chairmanship. i think it could probably be divisive. i have other priorities. i have a grandchild now. but i am. >> the former dnc chairman now vowing to support whoever wins that race. minnesota congressman keith ellison is now the frontrunner. and we traded him for five of the at that point ban's worse army deserter bowe bergdahl wants his own taste of freedom. bergdahl asking president obama for a full pardon before he leaves office. request part of the letter thanking the president for rescuing him through that controversial prisoner swap. bergdahl now faces life in prison for abandoning his post in afghanistan. twice delayed court marshall is set for may 15th. those are some of your head lines this morning. >> oh, manor. >> all right. just when you thought he was out, they pull him back in.

the united states should talk to whomever he wants. if he thinks it's in the interest of the united states. nobody in beijing gets to dictate who we talk to. my view has been for some time that we should be upgrading our relations with taiwan. i know that's going to cause heart burn in beijing. but it's a reality. this is a nation of over 20 million people. they have a democratic government. a free press. free market. they meet all the customary international law. definitions of understood. so, when a democratically elected leader calls the president of the united states. i say you bet he takes the call. >> lola. why then the hysteria? why the mainstream mediaened at left saying he is shaking up an entire relationship. they react that way reflexively with him. >> honestly i think we should shake this relationship up. for the past several years, china has made aggressive, id say, near belligerent claims in the south china sea. they have declared it to be a chinese province. they have established a provincial capital. what that means is they are
4:19 am
taking a vast amount of water out of the international waters or waters where there is a right of innocent passage and making it into chinese territorial waters. they are trying to put their hands around the throats of the economies of japan, south korea, taiwan and others. it's a direct impact on the united states. they also think taiwan is a province. you want to talk about provinces, china? we'll talk. >> and why this is so central though is because china is our number one trading partner in the world. on that point, where do you stand on the tpp. obviously that's a big one for mr. trump. is it such a bad thing to increase trade with our asian partners? >> he said that he is going to pull the plug on tpp at the beginning. i would have to say not having been involved in it at all, even back in the bush administration, the advantage of tpp as it was sold at the beginning was strategic. that this was an alternative to increasing chinese influence in the region. yet, tpp, as i read it, as negotiated, is just another managed trade agreement. donald trump said repeatedly during the campaign he
4:20 am
believed in free trade. the problem with a lot of these agreements that have been the subject of this criticism is number one, they are not free trade and number two, it is accurate to say that many other countries violate the commitments they make under these treaties and we don't do anything about it i think it's important in the pacific we do have a strategic alternative to china. i think we can provide that i think crump has made that clear in the campaign, too. there is a lot that we can be doing. >> ambassador bolton, great to see you this morning as always. >> thank you. >> thanks for being here. >> coming up on the show the new frontrunner for the dnc once proposed a state where only black people could live. should something so outrageous disqualify him from that post? we will debate that next. >> cnn at it again. does this joke about president-elect sound funny to you? take a listen. >>

february to make a decision and what keith ellison has said about that tape is that it was taken out of contest text and what he really meant is that israel is clearly important but that democrats and republicans should take into consideration folks from all around that region when we're putting together that. >> that's from 2010. i saw a good bit of context there. what do you think? >> certainly. it's also wrong to say that our middle east foreign policy is driven by 7 million people. in point of fact from the mid 1990s, we have given palestinians over $5 billion in aid. palestinians living in the west bank and gaza. as we know during the george bush drabush administration. -- president obama when he made those remarks were closenning our with iran putting together what he considers antinuclear deal. just kind of on the face it's wrong. if you want to look at anti-zionist or semitic. i will let other people make that decision.

4:35 am
something about fake information and fake news thing. he says we are going to do it. put a panel of people together. yet to do anything except the mainstream media just fell for a fake story that a tech blog picked it up that says well, we're going to go ahead and start flagging stories that aren't true. well, it wasn't even facebook that is doing that it's an add on to a browser if you use chrome browser from google. it has this add on that you can get b.s. detector do that go across all of these sites whether they are right wing sites or left wing sites or regular sites. it will simply look at it all and flag whether a story is true or not. >> is it even though? >> who is doing this? who is deciding it's some guy in his basement that's actually deciding this kind of stuff. is it an algorithm? none of that maybe made public. none of that has been told to us how it comes about. the truth is this isn't the answer. the answer is not some third party joe blow in his
4:36 am
basement coming up with algorithm that says hey, i will be the detector and tell if you it is real or not. it's going to boil down to us getting a lot smarter to identify what story's sources are true or not. and look at this, stanford university just finished up a survey 7,000 students have been polled and asked and they were shown several news headlines. and in the process, they were shown good ones and bad ones. which ones were which. 80 to 90% of the students could not identify the news source to know whether it was news worthy or not. that's the problem. >> these are students and know what they are getting on snowflake campuses these days. >> the point you raise is the important one. who is the decider? who decides what is or is not legitimate news? here are some sites that have been flagged through this wmd extremely. classification pending can't tell you what we think about it yet. info wars is dubbed conspiracy theory.

breaking the law, then the state funds and the federal funds are not going to follow you. it's not law breaking 101. that seems to be what's happening in these infantile study courses or programs across universities across the country putting together. it's time the taxpayers stop isubsidizing those. here in georgia we will just cut it off. >> what has the response been so far to the bill you are proposing and how likely is it that that would actually go through? >> i'm very, very confident that this will pass. i have most of my colleagues have called me and said keep it up, let's make sure that we don't fund. this this is absurd. these infantile pampered children who have seen nothing but participation trophies all their life, they need to see there is consequence to this kind of action. if they want to protest and they want to do this, that's just fine. do it on their own nickel. >> i'm sure have you had hate mail as well. this is a pretty controversial bill.

4:49 am
choose which laws you want to enforce. that's a terrible example for these university administrators to set for the students though are supposed to be teaching. so, that's the form it will generally take. if they do that lose millions in research grants and scholarship grants for these students. they are not doing the students a service as well. they are doing them a terrible disservice. >> representative earhart, we will see how all of this plays out from here. thanks for being with us. >> i think we will be successful. >> all right. well, coming up, some breaking news, the mainstream media says president-elect trump is too mean to them and is threatening a free press. >> although we did have a lot of fun fighting hillary, didn't we?

cnbc tweeted out i think it's ridiculous that donald trump keeps holding these rallies and in a subsequent tweet says why is donald trump, it's odd that donald trump is still campaigning. and he failed to mention that president barack obama did the exact same thing in 2008. this is where this double standard lies. like you have the rhetoric of donald trump. but then you have the record of barack obama and barack obama used the espionage act more than any of his previous presidents combined to prosecute reporters and while blowers into the government to basically silence them and scare them everyone remembers james rosen and what he went through as well as a.p. called all the reporter call logs subpoenaed by the doj. that is real and that is a record and not just rhetoric. >> what is the future of the press? obviously you guys live and die by ad revenue and viewership and rearedship. rearedship -- readership. what is going to happen to

>> so last night. >> want to talk about slippers all hour? >> no, i don't. i actually would love to but i want to talk about the mainstream media and how hysterical they got last night. if you read the headlines they were fast and furious. donald trump accepted a phone call from the taiwanese president on congratulatory phone call of him becoming president of the united states. if you read the headlines we are about to go to war with. look at the headlines. [ abby he ahmad that point last hour it's not as if he is the president of the united states. incoming. receiving congratulatory phone calls. talking to a democratic ally who we supply and we have worked with for a long time. >> frankly, you look at taiwan and their values are very much in line with the united states which you cannot say for china. china is our biggest
5:04 am
delicately find the right way to handle that once is he in office. i, like you guys, was sitting eating continuer with my family and getting alerts on phone and see taiwan trending on twitter. what's going on? not as if we were starting world war iii. just to tell people we are not. about as harmless as it gets. they literally called him to congratulate him. i just called back to say thank you. >> but the right flipped out about this. senator chris murphy tweeting this last night. >> the left did. >> what did i say? the right? >> it's okay. >> sorry. the left. chris murphy from connecticut tweeted. this what has happened in the last 48 hours is not a shift. these are major pivots in foreign policy without any plan. that's how wars start. we had ambassador bolton on the show earlier. >> that's true. so senator murphy from connecticut fancies himself a foreign policy intelligence. he likes to go out and hem and haw about you nuances of diplomacy. we're starting some diplomatic riff. we asked a guy who knows a lot about diplomacy as you mentioned ambassador john
5:05 am
bolton about why he would make or take this phone call. this is what the ambassador had to say. >> it's ridiculous to think that the phone call upsets decades of anything. but i do think it's important that people understand the president of the united states should talk to whomever he wants if he thinks it's in the interest of the united states. and nobody in beijing gets to dictate who we talk to. my view has been for some time that we should be upgrading our relations with taiwan. and i know that's going to cause heart burn in beijing. but it's a reality. this is a nation of over 20 million people. they have a democratic government a free press. a free market. they meet all the customary international law. definitions of understood. so when a democratically elected leader calls the president of the united states. i say you bet he takes the call. >> and that right there, that gentleman and former ambassador john bolton had a meeting with president-elect trump just a few days ago. >> yesterday i think it was. >> would he be on the short list for secretary of state. i asked him that question.
5:06 am
>> he said i'm not talking. no comment. >> he did say he would accept that position. >> he wants it and would take it. >> next hour we have my dad on he was ambassador to china. >> maybe we should ask him. >> i feel like he will have some thoughts on this. so we're going to ask when he joins us. >> speaking of the transition team. we had ambassador bolton on. he may be on that list for sefts. what about other nominations coming this week. and we see that general david petraeus is going to be under the microscope tomorrow because he has an interview with abc. >> i think that's all planned from there and to see how he handles certain questions that petraeus knows are going to be launched at him. >> classified information. >> right. >> people say mr. trump, how you can be so hard against hillary clinton about her emails and saying you were going to prosecute her and now you are backing away from that how you can put someone like general petraeus up for the top position of your cabinet. have concerns there. >> this is a deliberate thing from the president-elect. i mean, between david petraeus and mitt romney and rudy giuliani and ambassador bolton and other names that have been listed, this is
5:07 am
critically important job secretary of state. you want to see people go through that. bob corker is also on that list. conservatives like certain people. insiders like others. and so this process gives him a chance almost to vet in realtime in the public space something that he is comfortable with. and he has shown as executive he is willing to do. so no one knows who is going to be picked other than the president-elect. and that's very clear. >> you saw that with mike pence. >> okay with this process. >> saw that in the 11th hour with mike pence. who is going to get the vice president in no one knew. no one knew but trump. >> three things i think that they're probably looking at for secretary of state. one is can they get through confirmation most importantly? two is are they going to be loyal to me? and three, maybe most importantly is are they good -- are they best at cooking that job? so you look at that list we just laid out. it looks like all of them have something that they can't get past. >> they also all come with assets. >> some sort of assets. >> yeah. but also some.

5:10 am
>> i was going to say on top of all of that is your message. what mr. trump got right was something that clearly resonated with people across the country that people didn't fully understand. >> amazing to understand democrats didn't understand facebook during this election. the democrats really were the team that understood the power of those small donations. that message of social media. when john mccain's camp was left flat fooded what in the world just happened to us. the internet happened to us. here donald trump's campaign used facebook with small donations and crushed hillary clinton. >> he even said that twitter. he said from his experience on this campaign is now more powerful in his opinion than even money. >> of course. talking about facebook. of course that's a bit of an echo chamber too. a bunch of people talking to each other and reinforcing each other's message. messenger. ' hillary clinton was a flawed messenger. keith ellison flawed messenger. radical prone to rage -- i shouldn't say rage. prone to outburst as reaction to opponents. they have to reach a class of voters that they have

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. tand the alzheimer'sf association is going to make it happen. but we won't get there without you. visit alz.org to join the fight. family road trip! fun! check engine. not fun! but, you've got hum. that's like driving with this guy. all you do is press this, and in plain english, "coolant", you'll know what's wrong. if you do need a mechanic, just press this.

>> and welcome back. president-elect donald trump may have made a surprise announcement over general mattis last week. but next week is he expected to announce more cabinet picks. who is next? >> here to discuss executive committee member new york chris collins. good to see you, sir. >> thanks, abby. >> he said a couple nights ago in his rally in cincinnati that there are a number of big picks coming literally in his words very soon. as soon as next week. can you confirm that? >> yeah. that's true. you know, we have about -- you would say, half the cabinet is selected as 15 members. there is other positions as well. if we count general mattis who is officially going to be nominated on monday, but it was all pure trump that he did it the way he did it on thinks thank you tour. i any you will see several next week. that's what we have been told as well. we have six or seven to go at the cabinet level. but then we have got a lot of other positions to fill whether it's the director of
5:18 am
nasa or e.p.a. lot of administrative heads. so there is still an awful lot of work to go but, boy, the progress we have made, it's pretty laughable when a couple weeks ago the liberal left was saying the transition was in disarray and now you see him making all these selections well before any president before him has been able to make the progress. that's what a ceo does. >> what about secretary of state? we l. we see that this week? and if there is a romney pick, for instance, and there has been a lot of outrage among trump supporters saying no, he was insulting to mr. trump. no way. how would a mr. trump deal with his own supporters if he picks a romney? >> well, i mean, i have certainly been on the record saying what i said about governor romney. and i don't take any of it back. i have also been very clear. i will support president-elect trump in any and all decisions he makes for the personnel to help him do the job that he has got to do. i can tell you he has a lot of latitude with his supporters. worry just so excited. you know, making america
5:19 am
great and already the position he is taking. he is doing it his way. we love it and if he says that governor romney is the person he needs, we can disagree with it but we'll support it. >> when is he going to pick state, do you think? next week? >> i believe you will see it next week. that's going to be up to president-elect trump. but, yeah, we know who is the four final i.s are and it's a tough decision. there is all of them have pluses and minuses. they are all qualified. and, you know, that's requesting to be his call. who does he think he can work best with. and we'll all support him in that. >> representative, you mentioned how the media dubbed it in disarray two weeks ago. they are trying to find ways to poke holes in the process. it's the richest cabinet. billionaires in the cabinet potentially. what do you say to the critics saying wow, the rich guys from new york stocked into the cabinet? >> well, i would say we have smart, accomplished, in many cases entrepreneurial, private sector individuals coming in to the cabinet. that would be the dream
5:20 am
team. we have said this all along. those are the kinds of folks. these are not people coming to government through a revolving door to go back out on the other end four years later like bill clinton did. and make hundreds of millions of dollars. these are folks who have already been and made their success. i think it's kind of refreshing to have folks coming in to the cabinet that have no plans after they serve our country to then go cash in like the clintons have done and a few others. no, i think having a successful, accomplished people is better than having, you know, community activists and people of that sort. >> representative chris collins from new york. we appreciate you being here this morning. thank you so much. >> always good to be with you. >> and donald trump made that point from the podium, too. i want guys that have won and made money and been successful. why not? >> get the job done. major clash between the clinton and trump campaigns that the clinton camp accuses challengers of winning of white supremacy. did democrats learn anything from the election? we're going to debate that next. >> getting revved up. we have motor trend's cars

authorities now under fire for never sending the evacuation alerts to cell phones. the national weather service said evacuations are not included in the wireless emergency alert system. but officials say they're looking into making changes after how that turned out. clayton? over to you. >> thanks, pete. the election is over but temperatures are still flaring between clinton and trump teams. election forum between the campaigns. listen to this exchange. >> if providing a platform for white supremacists makes me as brilliant tactician, i'm glad to have lost, i would rather lose than win the way you guys did. >> do you think i ran a campaign where white supremacists had a platform? are you going to look me in the face and tell me that? >> it did. >> really? >> have democrats learned anything from the election results? here now to debate this. clinton campaign campaign advisor richard good stein and film maker den measure d'souza.
5:26 am
great to see both of you this morning. richard, i want to start with you. you hear that argument back and forth that the reason that trump won was because they gave a platform to white supremacists. do you buy that? >> >> well, there were a lot of reasons. although i have to say i was listening to your commentary earlier and you talk about how trump crushed hillary? it's an odd term to use about somebody who got 2.5 million fewer votes, who got under 47% of the vote, less than mitt romney got. it's a funny way to talk about crushing somebody. i will say this though. you know, we heard this term alt right. that's kind of an alt reality the notion that trump did the crushing. look, there are facts, clayton, trump tapped into the birther movement. he talked about muslims and mexicans. it's no coincidence that there have been hundreds and hundreds of racists and bigoted incidents ever since the election and people saying trump, trump, trump, as the backbone for what they're doing. >> den measure -- >> -- look, trump retweeted
5:27 am
white supremacists. how is that not tapping into white supremacy. i don't get it how is that even an argument. >> den issue in, does richard have a point here that trump didn't do anything to quell those individuals whose voices may be representative by the white supremacy movement and others? what do you say to that? >> well, this kind of white supremacy allegation is part of the modern democratic playbook. i remember in 1980 people dragged out five toothless white supremacists and said to reagan, you know, you are catering to white supremacies these guys are endorsed you. you notice they may have endorsed me but i haven't endorsed them. and i think this is the key issue that the democratic party historically has been the party of white supremacy. all the institutions of white supremacy from slavery to segregation, the ku klux klan, lynching, these were created, promoted and sustained by the democratic party. from the wikileaks revelations we have seen that democrats even now talk privately about blacks,
5:28 am
about hispanics, even about catholics in a way that you never see republicans talk. there is nothing eequivalent on the republican side. so this is a scapegoat to try to explain an election result that is very embarrassing for the democratic party. they had more money, they had the organization, the republican party was divided and still trump won. that leaves these guys with a lot of explaining to do. >> richard, did the democrats get the message losing 200 counties that had once gone to barack obama in areas where this used to come the bac backbone of the democratic party in west virginia and in pennsylvania and michigan? >> first of all, i have to say to den measure, you know, these incidents, these hundreds of incidents around the country where people are saying build a wall against hispanic basketball players at a high school. that's not something that democrats are making up. this is reality. i'm sorry. look, to answer your question, clayton, obviously there was a message problem
5:29 am
that democrats had. they see the ones. they're the ones who on trade deals are standing up for labor rights. they are the ones standing up for osha for health and safety regulations when there is an effort to tear down regulations. they believe that they are the ones who have stood up for blue collar, these white voters who they lost. no question they lost them. and i think the democrats have to figure out a way to reframe what they are doing to make sure people know that just like trump is taking credit for thousand jobs and poo pooing the 3.4 million jobs that were saved or created during the stimulus program. >> den 9/11 -- den >>-de >> >> the reason we have seen white working class is due to the combined forces of technology, globalization, and immigration. trump was the only candidate directly addressing those issues. he said i will do something about immigration. i will do something about
5:30 am
trade. obama and hillary have done nothing about these issues. and essentially been blaming third parties. oh it's ce oheos and corporate jets. trump was putting his finger on the right issue. you can't write it off racism. it wasn't that at all. >> thanks this debate will continue as this postmortem of the 2016 election continues. thanks, guys. you can say the "new york times" was a little biased during the election. our friend tucker carlson just confronted their public editor about it. watch. >> democrats, students, and foreign allies face the reality of a trump presidency. if you succeeded trump presidency with cancer diagnosis it would not change the meaning of this. >> wait until you hear the editor's response. that's next. rumors swirling about president obama's plans after he leaves office. how about a new job? would it be in the media? and start your engines. we have motor trend's cars of the year on our plaza.

whole country's laughing at you right now? >> come on. get your foot out of my door. >> president-elect, why did you remove the flagged? >> i don't want to talk to you about it. >> well, after two weeks of protests, the president changed his mind saying the flag can fly at full staff but only because he wants the threats to stop. then there is this. first obamacare, now obama tv. president obama reportedly considering a post presidential career in the media and is thinking about launching his own digital company. mr. obama recently telling "rolling stone" he wanted to dabble into story telling. though it's unclear exactly what forum that will take. sources say the potus may get a show on netflix or a webb comedy series. >> story time with barack. >> i already thought i had a network at msnbc. >> rick reichmuth standing outside with some cars. mae, man. >> time to get your motor running.

[cheers] >> as our secretary of defense. they say he is the closest thing to general george patton that we have and it's about time. >> well now democratic senator kristin gillibrand may tried to hold up waiver he needs to pass in order to serve in the cabinet. >> former navy seal and dinky served with mattis in 2004. he joins us now to weigh in. first out the gates, congressman. james mad dog mattis, what's your take. >> you know, i fought with him in fallujah, in my book "american commander," i talk about that. and he is a warrior. he is reluctant to go to war but he understands if we do go to war and commit troops, you got to make sure they have the right equipment, right training and right
5:47 am
rules of engagement to win decisively in the battle. he is a warrior. he understands that he also understands that the department of defense too bureaucratic, too top heavy on the front end. and we need a warrior to cut through that red tape and reform, refit the department of defense. which will have a larger view today than it does. >> speaking of the red tape. congress has to pass a waiver. if you have served less than seven years before taking this position and kristin gillibrand as i just mentioned is one of them who may make it challenging for him. how is that going to play out and shouldn't it ultimately be who is best for that job? >> well, certainly the president should have his choice of who he wants to pick in the department of defense. this is a critical job. and it will have a broad influence because you look at where we are in the world today, our coalition partners, our allies need to be sured up and make sure that we know they know that we are going to hold our
5:48 am
commitments. on the hill, you know, i think it's outrageous that someone would go out the gates and say i'm going to prevent donald trump from picking his guy, which the military is absolutely behind jim mattis. on the basis of a waiver. this exactly what's wrong with washington. >> the swamp strikes back for sure. let's say the waiver does happen. is there any conflict on confirmation? what could or would the democrats try to bring up against mad dog mattis? >> well, probably he is not politically correct. and in my view, that's a strength. probably that he is a reluctant warrior but when he goes to war, he is serious about it. again, i fought with him in fallujah. he understands also that the backbone of our military is a sergeant and a chief petty officer. we want to make sure that our troops are sured up and the troops have what they need. is he a great, great pick. >> tell us more about him. because you are one of the individuals that has been with him more on a personal level. tell us more about him as a
5:49 am
person. >> well, i tell you he is serious. is he an intellectual. like general mattis, we're all reluctant to go to war. we have seen it we have seen the tragedy that war, unfortunately, war has on our americans pressure both financial and our citizens. but when you go to war. there is no one better focused in making sure that we win. oftentimes is he aggressive. but his alternatives on the side and fallujah, for instance, there was a number of alternatives how to deal with it general mattis normally was the most aggressive. but, believe me. his plan was assured that we would win. and he is respected. he is respected the front line that's important. >> amen as he said no better enemy rank and file love him which says a lot about who general mattis is congressman, thanks for joining us this morning. we appreciate. >>it great to be with you. >> you got it. all right. america son the verge of

yesterday chris murphy summarized a lot of the criticism in this tweet saying, what has happened in the last 48 hours is not a shift. these are major pivots in foreign policy without any plan. that's wars start. now, taiwan is one of the most sensitive issues in the u.s.'s relationship with china. the communist nation regards taiwan as part of its territory while the island, which is only 100 yards offshore from mainland china, maintains its independence. and since 1979 the u.s. has walked a diplomatic tight rope with an official position that's somewhere in the middle. since 1979 no american president or president-elect has spoken to a taiwanese leader until yesterday. and the president-elect is defending his phone call tweeting, the president of taiwan called me today to wish me congratulations on winning the presidency. thank you. he continued saying, interesting how the u.s. sells taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment, but i should not accept a congratulatory call.
6:04 am
you'll remember mr. trump had plenty of strong words for china on the campaign trail, though his transition team has not indicated that this phone call with taiwan's president is any kind of foreshadowing of broader changes in u.s. policy. but it does clearly indicate that it will not be business as usual in the next administration. abby, pete. >> you heard geraldo's voice over here. we have to bring geraldo in. >> good morning. >> enough talking about squash soup with you, but we will be with her dad in a bit. but is there hypocrisy here? when president obama normalizes relations with cuba, first international flight flying there last week, and then the president-elect is now being criticized for taking a call from a democracy, the president of a democratically elected government in taiwan -- >> yeah, but -- >> where was the outrage on the other side? >> taiwan, which was the sole representative of china for decades in american policy, the island for most off the chinese
6:05 am
coast with the nationalist fled when the communist took over, pete knows the military history very well, at some point nixon went to china, big china, said you are the sole representative of the chinese people. taiwan then became kind of a political outlier and our policy was to deal with china, republic of china. to take the call from the president of taiwan, to take the call from the renegade island, so to speak, is a major dis for the people in the republic of china with all their hundreds of millions of people. so, you know, i was just thinking about it, it is so outrageous an act in terms of the diplomacy. it might be brilliant. it might be a way to jump start new phase of u.s.-chinese relations. >> i don't know if you caught ambassador on the show earlier this morning who agrees with you. he thinks it's time for a shakeup. and at the end of the day we send over $100 billion in weaponry to taiwan. so sort of doing this fake dance. >> but here's the thing, you read the headlines last night and if you were on twitter at all, it felt as if we were
6:06 am
heading into world war iii. just some of these headlines, there's "new york times," how trump's calls to world leaders are upsetting decades of diplomacy. goes on and on. think about what actually happened, geraldo, this was just basically a call congratulating him to which he responded thank you. you're wondering why there's so much outrage not to mention he's not even sworn-in yet. >> well, i'm curious, abby, to see what your dad, former ambassador, says about it. to me this is why you need the pros around. you need someone to say, you know, if you do that -- >> he wouldn't have just decided to accept a call. someone probably counselled him. >> i don't know. >> i'd hope. i'd hope. i don't know. knowing him -- i've known for four decades. i love the guy. and particularly these, you know, the last six weeks of celebrity apprentice i was with him every day. he's the kind of guy say, yeah, screw it, i'm going to talk to him. go do some -- shuffle some
6:07 am
papers in your bureaucratic cubicle. i'm going to take the call. >> and come out of the office and chatting on twitter -- >> i think it's a very big deal. i'd be interested to see what president obama or the white house has to say about it. but what bolton said might be true, clayton. it may be that it's time in the same way it took a right conservative president nixon and henry kissinger to go and open china. >> right. >> which was playing against cast against tide, no one thought it could happen. a liberal never could have done it. the conservative did it. maybe now this flamboyant new entity we have coming into the white house is exactly the one shaken up. >> reagan with the soviet union and start treaties, it takes someone you know to do that. >> i think if it's handled with any kind of finesse today, it will be a one-day --
6:08 am
>> so it's a shakeup. but there's another shakeup we want to talk about on the democratic side. howard dean pulled his name out leaving -- information come out now about radical things he's said in the past about israel. things he said about a racial state many, many years ago, what's your take on keith ellison being kind of the standard bear for the democratic party? >> i think that keith ellison was a big bernie sanders supporter, so i think keith ellison is their guy if they want a very hard left, at times even radical democrat. he is one of the only two muslims in the congress, but they say that's not the issue. the real issue with keith ellison -- and it's not even his support of the million man march back in the day of louis farrakhan and things he said like creating homeland within the united states for african-americans and things like that, you can attribute a
6:09 am
lot of that to just being a kid. but his statements more recently about israel. israel is the, you know, it's to be nuanced in your support of israel, to be very at all from a hard pro-israel line is extremely difficult in this country. and i think that you have a situation here where he is equivocating his support for israel. i believe in a two-state solution. i'm take e talking geraldo now. i believe that israeli sett settlements in the west bank are an impediment -- >> he's talking about conspiracies that israel controlled foreign policy -- >> discovered by the antidefamation league made as recently as 2010 indicates he believes israel is trampling on the rights of palestinians and so forth and i think that might doom his candidacy. and in any case he's not the guy to unite the broader democratic
6:10 am
party. >> what do the democrats do now? who do they have? where do they go? i mean, this holiday season for them right now has to be some deep soul searching. >> i mean, they have lost if you think about the congress, 2010, 2012, 2014 and now 2016. what is the root of the problem? >> i think the root of the problem is they got too arrogant in terms of their organization at the state and local level. that's where when you have the state houses and the state legislatures drawing up what the districts look like -- and they're all controlled by republicans or two-thirds of them are controlled by republicans, the congressional districts favor the republicans. so you have a situation where you have donald trump can win with 2 million fewer votes than hillary clinton got. the democrats have to start a grassroots organizing campaign. now, going back to ellison, the adl now opposes ellison, but chuck schumer, who is now the minority leader of the united
6:11 am
states senate or soon will be, supports him. so you see the beginnings of a civil war within the democratic party. you know, to answer your question, clayton, where do they go? they have they have to get a guy, or woman, with tremendous charisma and strength to organize. and nancy pelosi won't be able to -- >> isn't it message? what do they stand for? >> the biggest problem with hillary clinton is why is she running, what is her actual message? >> and bernie sanders' message was resonating why they were so angry hillary was their standard bear. >> you just mentioned three different positions there and could also be are they the party of color, are they the party of urban america. there are so many different strokes that they have to pick a lane really. unions -- >> i think metalists -- >> i think the only -- it is sad to say that the only democrat with that kind of, you know, stature is joe biden.
6:12 am
and joe biden, the vice president, has no interest it seems to me in patching up party policy. >> that's interesting. geraldo, good to be with you this morning. always good to see you. we have other headlines this morning. we begin with a fox news alert. and dozens of party goers are feared dead or trapped after a massive fire erupts at a warehouse party in oklahoma, california. you can see the flames here shooting through the roof of the ghost ship club smoke filling the air for miles. officials say up to 100 people were in the area at the time. the massive inferno so out of control that all firefighters were ordered out of the building. this is a breaking story. and they've still aggressively are working to put out that fire. we'll of course keep you updated as it continues this morning. and another fox news alert now, a horrific bus crash in texas smashing into an 18-wheeler sending at least eight high school cheerleaders to the hospital. they were returning home from a
6:13 am
football game. two are in critical condition, two others in serious condition, four others transferred to another hospital for further treatment. no word yet on their conditions. and we traded him for five of the taliban's worst, now bowe bergdahl wants his own taste of freedom. asking for a full pardon before he leaves office. the question part of the letter thanking the president for rescuing him through that controversial prisoner swap. bergdahl now faces life in prison for abandoning his post in afghanistan, twice delayed court-martial set for may 15th. thank you, abby. those are headlines indeed. the 1,100 jobs saved at carrier air conditioner may be just the start. >> companies are not going to leave the united states anymore without consequences. >> charles payne, i like to call him c-payne, on how businesses are reacting to the trump effect next. good morning, charles. and when it comes to immigration democrats love to
6:14 am
praise -- system, but what if we told you somebody forgot to turn it on? >> oh, that's not good. many people clean their dentures with toothpaste or plain water. and even though their dentures look clean, in reality they're not. if a denture were to be put under a microscope, we can see all the bacteria that still exists on the denture, and that bacteria multiplies very rapidly. that's why dentists recommend cleaning with polident everyday. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria.

6:17 am
what an interesting story this is. two days after president-elect trump got carrier to keep 1,100 jobs from going to mexico, trump sending a new message to another company last night, rexnord is the name of the company in indiana, trump tweeting rexnord of indiana is moving to mexico and rather viciously firing all 300 workers. this is happening all over our country. no more. trump's comments coming as ford now saying it's willing to work with trump to keep jobs in the u.s. so what's going on here? let's bring in the host of "making money" on the fox news network, charles payne, the one and only charles payne. great to see you this morning. >> good morning. >> so president obama over the summer back in june at a town hall event said there's no magic wand. you can't just wave a magic wand and keep 1,100 jobs here.
6:18 am
and yet it was interesting because that was precisely what he was trying to do with solyndra and picking different companies. and now president-elect trump has done this with carrier. so what is the role of the federal government in saving these jobs? >> well, i think the role of the federal government is to create an economic backdrop so that companies don't even think about leaving. in other words, not the whole thing carrot and stick approach. one thing barack obama did as president is he lavished us every year with billions of dollars in new regulations, higher taxes, all of the things that make it hard to run a business. in fact, business creation itself went to an all-time low. so the first thing the president does is create an economic backdrop so their businesses want to stay here. but also help if you had an economy that was moving. a booming economy. this is the first time we ever had a president who didn't achieve 3% economic growth. i think that's the main role right there. now, contrast that with the role of business. the role of business is to return money to shareholders.
6:19 am
typically that's what a business does. you try to bolster the bottom line and try to stay in business. >> so when you look at, you know, sarah palin wrote an opinion piece, i thought it was interesting you have a lot of liberals coming out praising the president-elect for saving these jobs and then conservative sarah palin saying this is crony capitalism and the role of the federal government should not be picking winners and losers, same being leveled at president obama for picking solyndra and other companies. so does she have a point here? >> well, a lot of conservative economic purists bristle at this still, the notion that the president-elect trump put this in place. i would say in this particular case donald trump felt the need to fulfill a campaign promise, and also a need to spur on this momentum of hope, this momentum of excitement -- it was partially symbolic, partially keeping a promise, but partially
6:20 am
also the intangible part of a great economy is having people believe in the economy in the first place. we saw middle america, particularly in the rust belt and other areas where people had given up in part because they'd been forgotten. they feel like they're part of the process right now. so for donald trump's economic policies to work, for any president's economic policies to work, ultimately we must buy into it. so what he did i think was a brilliant stroke of genius. i think it's going to help dramatically. i thought the thank you tour coupled with that was phenomenal. but there are going to be some issues. you mentioned ford in the read, they're still going to move jobs to mexico. there are other elements besides cheap labor they have some great trade. they have great trade deals with mexico and the rest of the world that we don't. we know we have a president who cares, and i'd like to see more than the carrot than the stick though sometimes they both work. >> charles, great to see you. >> thank you so much. our next guest created water boarding and spentd thousands of hours -- how does he feel about

6:25 am
aspects of 9/11. but the issue of the day is does water boarding work. something you know firsthand. first of all, does it work and did it lead to intelligence to prevent another attack? >> well, eits were certainly necessary to get information from detainees that allowed us to prevent another attack. so in some cases water boarding was the appropriate thing to do. in other cases it wasn't as effective. but i think it's less about water boarding because it was never a central part of the cia's interrogation program, and it was only done on three detainees. less important than water boarding itself, because the media seems to be obsessed with it, is the fact that at some point we are going to need some kind of legal coercion and that's a conversation that i think america needs to have. >> indeed. so great point. you can't conflate water boarding and enhanced interrogation techniques. it's a menu of options through
6:26 am
coercion. >> right. >> do we need more at our disposal in light of the enemy we're facing right now? have we walked too far back and we're not able to interrogate the way we need to against a vicious enemy? >> our primary problem is we're going to run into the worst of the worst. khalid sheikh mohammad had secrets he wanted to protect and didn't in conversation for two days in interrogation before he was sent to the black side. he's not going to give them up unless being coerced. the lesson is, yes, we need something. the army field manual wouldn't work on him. he needed to be coerced. >> fascinating information in that book as you mentioned. only three faced water boarding due to a process used very rarely. get your take on donald trump's new nomination of the secretary of defense james mattis, known as a war fighter that doesn't
6:27 am
mince words but also says disagrees with the technique of water boarding. here's president-elect trump talking some audio about his take on general mattis and this particular technique. take a listen. >> general mattis is a strong, highly dignified man. i met with him at length and i asked him that question. i said what do you think of water boarding? he said, i was surprised. he said i've never found it to be useful. >> and he goes onto say that he could get more with a six-pack of beer. do you agree with that? >> well, i have a lot of respect for general mattis. from what i hear he's a heck of a warrior. but i have had many years of experience interrogating top al qaeda terrorists, the senior leaders. and so what i would respectively ask general mattis is, as a senior leader, if you were being held by our enemies, would you give up information that would allow them to capture and kill americans and to disrupt our efforts to protect ourselves for
6:28 am
a michelob and, you know, pack of winstons, i don't think so. ksm didn't do that either, he wouldn't do that. >> indeed. the future of guantanamo bay is in question, has guantanamo bay been an effective tool and should it stay open? >> i think guantanamo bay should stay open. we need to keep those people off our soil. and we -- excuse my language, we darn sure don't need to be letting them go. it should stay open. >> there you go. there you have it. the man who himself interrogated ksm, the book is call eed "enhanced interrogation." james mitchell, thank you for your service to our country and for writing this book. i'm sure people will find it fascinating. >> thank you for having me on. cnn, the clinton news network is at it again. does this joke about president-elect donald trump sound funny to you?
6:29 am
>> if i do this it means he's landed. okay. that means -- >> the growing backlash and apology just ahead. plus, you know abby huntsman here on the couch, she can deliver the news every morning. has she ever wondered about her life off camera? abby's parents, john and mary kay huntsman are here. wonderful family. ♪

6:34 am
slippers. >> kind of makes me jealous. i want to be at home with just some slippers on. >> let's do the show tomorrow in slippers. can we do that? let me ask my producer, can we do that? yes. we got the go ahead. tomorrow is slipper sunday here on "fox & friends". there's still a lot of news going ton this morning and some serious headlines to get to. another campus attack overnight. a student is now in custody a accused of stabbing a professor to death at the university of southern california. professor killed by multiple stab wounds. police now saying the professor was targeted in the attack. and there appears to be no threat to the rest of that university. there's also this this morning. cnn under fire after a producer jokes about president-elect donald trump's plane crashing. take a listen. >> if i did this, it means he's landed. okay.
6:35 am
that means his plane crashed. >> that comment made seconds before a live report. cnn issuing a statement reading this, we have apologized to the trump transition team and producer has been disciplined. and an embarrassing flaw in a u.s. immigration system so bad that it now has all new citizenship ceremonies on hold. the chairman of the house judiciary committee bob goodlatte demanding immediate investigation after immigration officials found what's being called a major security flaw in the electronic system used for background checks. apparently that system failed for a number of people seeking citizenship. goodlatte is now asking homeland security to find out just how many people have slipped through the cracks. this is a story that sparked national outrage, the college that banned the american flag from campus now flying our symbol of freedom once again. the president of hamshire college in massachusetts first lowered the flag to mourn hillary clinton's election loss and then later took down the flag after it was set on fire when president-elect trump won.
6:36 am
so our own jesse watters tried to talk to the president about his decision. here's how that played out. >> didn't you realize the whole country's laughing at you right now? >> come on, get your foot out of my door. >> why'd you remove the flag? >> i don't want to talk to you about it. >> okay. well, after two weeks of protests, the president changed his mind. now saying the flag can in fact fly at full staff but only because he wants those threats to stop. that's a good reason. >> yeah, threats they want the flag to fly again? oh, my goodness. let's go to rick on the plaza. what's going on? >> it's a little chilly. we have some folks from arkansas. welcome. >> thank you. >> first trip to new york. >> first trip to new york city, yes. >> you went and sat in trump tower yesterday. >> we did. we visited had coffee, enjoyed it. beautifully decorated. >> welcome. happy you're here. little cool if you're from arkansas right now. >> it is. >> but it's going to get a lot colder. everybody's talking about this
6:37 am
cold air that's coming. we have been incredibly warm all fall across most of the country. and now here's what's going to happen. you see that pink that's up across alaska, slowly makes its way down across the lower 48. is not as cold as it is once -- when it is up across parts of canada and alaska. you get the idea by thursday the cooler air will have settled all the way in across the south and high temperature in atlanta of 49. high temperatures in parts of arkansas into the 30s. it is some chilly air coming on in. we also have a big storm today bringing rain across parts of texas and arkansas. we're going to say arkansas as much as possible right now. rain tonight and tomorrow rain across the deep south where we need it. good news. back to you guys inside. >> rick, we're making butternut squash soup. come in, we'll warm you right up. >> look who's here. >> you are special guest today. >> i love to be here with two superstars. >> beautiful ladies in my life. how cool is that? >> my mom is going to take over
6:38 am
your box. >> that's for sure, you got the beautiful -- >> mary kay huntsman and john huntsman, nice to see you guys, in new york city celebrating 33rd wedding anniversary. >> still together. >> it's almost unfathomable. when you start as best friends, i think that's pretty key. if you start as best friends, you can hang together for an awfully long time. what are you doing for anniversary? dinner? >> still waiting for chief planner to come up with that. >> a little surprise tonight. >> we're away so often on our anniversary that when we're together we'll do something special. >> what's the secret, mom, 33 years, seven kids, three dogs and chaos. >> and a deadbeat husband. >> humor, for one. >> right. >> i think a couple things one is the human touch. you know, for 33 years no matter where we are we automatically are holding hands and that human touch i think is really important to keep throughout the years. the other thing i would say is probably the most important thing is being unselfish because you look at a lot of
6:39 am
relationships and the one component that is missing is that unselfishness. the one may be selfish or the other, or both, that's when you run into a problem. >> and self-d -- >> that's what we love about your daughter, she's real, down to earth and not a pretentious bone in her body. give us insight into the huntsman household when she was growing up. >> oh, no, fire cracker. >> fire cracker. >> was she the one that got in trouble? >> well, whether mary anne or lid di or grace, but imagine abby, you know, running away i mean, you see her here on the curvy couch. it's hard to imagine she'd pack up a suitcase -- >> got to hear that. >> a block away we would find her with the suitcase having, you know, been really upset at something we said. >> sure. >> we'd opened the suitcase on one occasion, only one thing inside, one pair of underwear. >> she went out of our house and
6:40 am
you need to pack your bags, i got it, 11 years old, got to the end of the street and there were a group of cute boys she knew in school, she got nervous, dropped the suitcase and the underwear came out and about five minutes later the doorbell rang and these boys said i think abby left something out on the curb. >> can you get a shot of abby because she's blushing. >> i always wondered -- >> there's a whole lot more. >> i always wondered why parents had leashes for their kids. i always thought that was torture. maybe you needed that for me. >> talk about the need for a leash. >> we lived in taiwan back in the '80s. i lived there twice. abby was about 2 at the time. we were in church. she ran out of church. right in a very busy street. you have to appreciate traffic patterns in taiwan, we looked for abby, couldn't find her, the closer i would get to her like a dog that wouldn't come home, she would dart to the street. >> do you remember that, abby? >> miraculously we got her and
6:41 am
recovered her. >> but we have you here on an interesting morning because we don't often talk about china on this show. we don't often talk about taiwan. >> right. >> a center of your expertise of course. >> former ambassador. >> former ambassador to china for the united states. this phone call that donald trump received from the president of taiwan has sparked outrage over the night that we're undoing 30 years, 40 years of diplomatic relations with china. what is your take? >> can i say abby lived in taiwan twice and having lived in china once there's a little too much hyperventilating about this one. so you've got fairly recently elected president in taiwan, she represents the democratic progressive party. second time for that party to be in power. she puts in a call to the president-elect. a fairly unconventional president-elect. he's going to do things differently, that's to be expected. he takes the call which shouldn't surprise anybody and they have a conversation. look at the response out of beijing out of the foreign
6:42 am
ministry and i'm pretty much an expert at responses out of the foreign ministry because i used to get dragged in as am baz bass dor when things went wrong, but they're not making it too big a deal. the issue should be this, does taiwan deserve more space? we share values. we have a big economy. we trade. they have a civil society that is large and robust and mature. and we ought to be giving them a little more space. >> interesting. >> if that kind of comes out of this whole discussion that people recognize that taiwan may be a little different than they thought, then maybe that should kind of create a template for the way that the new trump administration sees the ree jon. but let's remember this, just finally, the last time a member of the dpp was in power, back in the '80s, things got so hot we ended up sending in two carrier battle groups and it was a very dangerous moment. so whatever you do has to be in the context of a one-china policy. but you can find some flexibility there. >> we only have a minute left. i could ask for ten minutes more about that and your future in politics, whether you want to do
6:43 am
more, or we can get another story about abby. whatever you want. >> no, go on. >> how about her future. >> or her future in politics. >> that is a good point because you have made news this past week about potentially running for senate in your home state of utah. our home state of utah. >> if there are two issues that can destroy a politician, it's talking about china, taiwan, it's talking about running for office. >> it's true. >> hot button issues today on the couch. >> i've always said we got maybe one run left in our bones. and we'll see what happens. >> you ready for another run? >> selfish side of me says no. if he wins, i don't want to have to commute, but the patriotic side, having two boys in the military says, you know what, we serve. >> well, you guys are ready to cook for us a little bit. you'll be cooking some butternut squash soup. >> you can smell it in the stud studio. >> you've never had butternut squash soup. >> no. >> you'll be a new fan. >> i love this food. we'll be trying it coming up. thanks for joining us. >> nanks for having us.
