3:01 am

"fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ ♪ have a holly jolly christmas. >> we're at bass pro shops with all these last minute gifts. christmas is next week. >> i kind of have forgotten i have to do all my shopping, still. >> that's the beauty of having bass pro shops. that's real snow this time. that's not fake snow. had to shovel the plaza three times i'm told. >> getting out of hand. >> i didn't help. >> just watched sipping coffee. >> that's not nice, pete. >> i have filled my shovel quota in my levee. i let others do it whenever possible. >> it looks so if he has been outside. my favorite time of year, when i can dust off the ugly

christmas sweater. i have a whole wardrobe full of them. this morning we want you to sent in ugly christmas sweater photo. we will try on some later in the show. >> bells. we were talking about edible christmas sweaters the other day. >> one year i had edible christmas sweater. eat marshmallows off of it and s'mores. >> if you can combine two things, food and a sweater into one. see if you can top that off. >> we're going to try this morning. let's talk some politics this morning. the president, every year right before he goes on a 17-day vacation to hawaii. a postmortem of the year looking back at this year in his administration. it was a rough year for democrats. a really rough year. but he walked an interesting line in his assessment of what happened this year. blaming both russia but also a little bit of hillary clinton for the problems. listen. >> based on uniform intelligence assessments, the russians were
3:03 am
responsible for hacking the dnc. i can assure the public that there was not the kind of tampering with the voting process that was a concern, the votes that were cast were counted. they were counted appropriately. our goal continues to be to send a clear message to russia or others not to do this to us because we can do stuff to you. the thing we have to spend the most time on because it's the thing we have the most control over is how do we make sure that we are showing up in places where i think democratic policies are needed, where people feel as if they are not being hurt. and where democrats are characterized as coastal, liberal latte sipping, you know, politically correct
3:04 am
out-of-touch folks. we have to be in those communities. >> interesting. >> it was so interesting to hear president obama talk about it in that tone. saying we have got to move away from liberal latte sipping tone of ours because we are not connecting with the people who need our help. in his words, the most. that's exactly the message i have heard when i'm out talking to many of the democrats who ended up voting for mr. trump is we're sick of talk and no action here. when it came to hillary clinton she was not inspiring enough. she didn't give us a reason to want to go out and vote for her. let's put the russians aside for main and talk about what actually impacted this election the most. >> what if you have become latte sipping coastal liberal politically correct out-of-touch folks which so many of them have been. you can say that's what we have become and we need to go there and present a different message. what's the message they need to present especially when you need to learn from the elections. so far they are still pointing at the russians alluded a little bit to hillary clinton and reaching the constituencies.
3:05 am
when you are attacking postmortem what they failed to do hard to move forward. >> listen to the tease, if you are going to do something to us we're going to do something you. if i poke me we're going to poke you back. that was interesting when he was talking about the russians like unpack that a little bit. what was he saying? the votes were fine. we actually tallied everything up. he was talking about fake news. that that is actually more nefarious, somehow than hacking into databases. >> getting nothing but straight news for years. playing it down the middle from the "new york times." >> exactly. >> he wouldn't have had anything to contribute to the problem. >> they totally predicted the election outcome. >> which is fabulous. he did point it out saying it is our partisanship, in the media that is to blame what russia is doing. here is what he said about that. >> our vulnerability to russia and any other foreign
3:06 am
power is directly related to how divided partisan, dysfunctional our political process is if fake news that's being released by some foreign government is almost identical to reports that are being issued through partisan news venues, then it's not surprising that that foreign propaganda will have a greater effect. it doesn't seem that farfetched compared to some of the other stuff that folks are hearing from domestic propagandists. >> so foreign governments planting fake news in an effort to undermine the election. >> he is saying russia. that's who he is alluding
3:07 am
to. all these news stories and aalt right conservative stories people believed in them. never once in 90 minutes did he look in the cam rand ache at a credit or responsibility for the fact america is a pretty divided country. maybe it is his policies. maybe when you ram obamacare down america's throats with only democratic vote. set red lines and don't enforce them. terrible policies and people like it they react to. >> it that's a great point. >> you hear the clicking of cameras and the crowds and down in florida trump and pence on thank you tour. i-4 corridor is where all eyes were. >> i have done that i remember when my dad was running four years ago. i lived in florida. it's an important area. he was in orlando last night and that was obviously such an important state for him to win. >> huge. it's not the merry christmas tour. >> no. it's the american tour. but, also, he is very --
3:08 am
part of the reason some people appreciated mr. trump at this point in history was the fact that he pointed directly to political correctness and how he is anything but. and he is continuing to point fingers at the media. and he also was talking about "time's" person of the year. let's call it the man person of the year or woman person of the year. here is what he said last night. >> "time" magazine and the "financial times" big deal, just gave me person of the year. person. [cheers] >> they should give it to you because this is a movement, folks. this isn't me. so in the past it was called map of the year. now it's called personal of the year. so, here's the question what could do you like better, ready? do you like person of the year? [crowd boos] >> do you like man of the
3:09 am
year? [cheers and applause] well, they want to be politically correct. >> that is absolutely gold. >> he will have it framed and put on his office wall and put in trump tower. >> i bet it already is. >> and it should be. >> when you hear him talk about that at these rallies hear why people in the campaign connected to him. he makes them feel like he is their friend. wants their opinion. tweets out all morning long makes them feel they are important it him. >> trying to get messages out through the mainstream media that hasn't worked well for him. he doesn't need the mainstream media at all. >> he also speaks the way we speak around the table. >> big league. >> that's kind of garbage. why can't it be man of the year. if a woman wins, she is the woman of the year. you know it's political correctness and it bleedz through everything. 'when obama stands up there and says i'm a coastal

3:17 am
meets the test to be qualified to be president. i am making a moral choice. i am choosing to examine his qualifications. there are probably other people who may be doing the same thing and coming to a different conclusion. and that's fine. that's why we have an electoral college to cast these votes. >> well, that was texas elector christopher sepron on "tucker carlson tonight" show vowing to vote against president-elect trump on monday. this comes as electors face death threats and many on the left urging other electors to the follow suit and, quote, vote their conscience. but, our next guest, texas elector rex is standing up to the left and rallying behind the president-elect this monday. he joins us now to explain why he casts his vote as elector for mr. trump. sir, thank you for joining us this morning. you are elector from texas. you made a pledge to vote for mr. trump. for the winner of that state who was president-elect trump, why are you choosing to do that? >> okay. good morning, pete. >> good morning. >> good to see you this

3:19 am
do. i'm planning to do what texas chose me to do. i consider my consider myself a faithful elector. >> that pesky constitution you abide by as well. you received 3,000 emails. 200 letter and not very nice ones mostly from the left telling you to vote your conscience. these are a few on the screen. few being nasty. may your tombstone and life be a fallacy if you evil in the gate. go ahead and vote for your clown. and mr. trump has not displayed any characteristics of a good leader much mora much less somee trustworthy enough to be the most powerful man in the world: did any of that have an effect on you? >> were actually, the very first one i received i kind of felt very threatened. how did anyone find my email? the number today is like 80,000. i have enough mail to fill up a room. getting videos sent to me
3:20 am
with all sorts of things. it's just made me more resolute. i understand some of their concerns. i have been on the losing side of elections myself. and it's not fun to lose. but the will of the american people has spoken. and i intend to do what the will of texas has done. were. >> rex, we only have 10 second. any doubt in your mind that donald trump will win the electoral vote? >> not in any doubt in my mind. we are going to support him all the way. and is he going to be our next president january 20th. >> rex no, doubt in america's mind that that is an outstanding shirt. i want one. i know you love your country. >> all right. >> you love your country and your state. >> i will send one to you. >> rex teter an elector from texas. >> how is donald trump's message resonating with the voters? the brand new dials are here next. and michelle obama an announcement to make. give up. hope in america is dead. that's right.

3:28 am
this way they don't know who rex tillerson is they have no idea who he is. this isn't enough information. it's a lot of narrative. he san oil executive. he is friends with russia. that is not working for him. donald trump just saying he is a businessman and made great deals isn't quite enough. he talks about how he has done deals and going to be able to do great trade deals. bring jobs back to america while still having relations with each of those countries. he need to give more context actual information. for the most part it's not that i don't like it's i don't know what to think about him. >> he is going to have an interesting hearing with the senate in a few weeks here. not a lot of people know rex tillerson because he has not been public figure. he has been at exxon his entire working career. >> that's right. >> we'll see how that continues to play out. he says you're going to be so tired of winning bay the end of this incorporate this. here is what he said the other night. >> win a lot. we're going to win so much you're going to go to paul ryan, you're going to go, mr. speaker, please, please,

>> almost every country on earth sees america as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago. in other words, by some measures our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we started. it's a situation that i'm proud to leave for my successor. >> well, we have all got opinions on that topic. you know who else has an opinion on that topic is the good governor mike huckabee who joins us now. governor, i have to ask you, if he says it, does it make it so? >> i'm sorry, but it doesn't. i know that's what he would like for christmas, but this time it's a lump of coal in
3:35 am
his bag. let me tell you something. when he says that i'm scratching my head. is he kidding? we have the got yawnians, you know, laugh up their "sully" what we have done. fighter jets flying 30 feet above a destroyer out in the international waters. we have the iranians taking sailors and making them get on their knees and putting blindfolds on and john kerry going over and saying thank you fo treating them so nicely. it's not been a great 8 years. it's been a kids mall eight years. can he believe like he wants and i'm sure is he thinking that a lot of americans are glad this 8 years is coming to a conclusion. >> one is the russian reset which hillary clinton was responsible for. the russian reset seems like we are all on good terms with them apparently if you listen to the president yesterday talking about pretty much putting the blame on russia for putting fake news into our news stream and not breaking into that. servers and hacking the dnc
3:36 am
and rnc and different things like that. floating fake news stories is why hillary clinton lost this election. >> let me explain if hillary would like to spend about $4 she can go down to walgreen's and buy a mirror. look in it, hillary. that's why you lost. it's not -- you don't even have to take a million-dollar poll and check with 1,000 people. it's that simple. one of the things that's been very disturbing and i want to get serious here for a moment. i've been on the stage when i won and i've been on the stage when i've lost. it's more fun to win by the way. let me be very clear. when you win an election, you go out and you thank the people because it's their shoulders on whom you rode to victory. if you lose, you don't go out and blame everybody in sight. you go out and suck it up and you accept it can you imagine an nfl quarterback after the game that the team lost saying gee, i'm the greatest quarterback in the league and i would have won this game single-handedly if h. it not been for those
3:37 am
lousy linemen in front of me. what kind of play will you expect from them the next time? i'm just stunned by this. >> that seems to be the message we are hearing from hillary clinton. she was speaking to some donors just two nights ago, talking about russia and basically putting the blame on that for her losing the election. here is what she said the other night. >> voters made their decisions in the final days, breaking against me because of the fbi letter from fbi director comey. and nate silver believes, i happen to believe this, that that letter most-likely made the difference in the outcome. vladimir putin himself directed the covert cyber attacks against our electoral system. against our democracy. apparently because he has a personal beef against me. this is not just an attack against me and my campaign,
3:38 am
although that may have added fuel to it, this is an attack against our country. >> as you said, governor, it's been a tough year for democrats. and when you don't look in the mirror and see the blame that might actually be yourself and maybe the policies you were putting forward, you point fingers at everybody else. we also heard from michelle obama. she spoke with oprah i think it was yesterday or the day before. she was basically talking about how after this election what it feels like when americans have no hope. here's what she said. >> your husband's administration everything, the election was all about hope. do you think that this administration achieved that? >> yes. i do. because we feel the difference now. >> yeah. >> see, now we're feeling whatnot having hope feels like. you know. hope is necessary. it's a necessary concept. and barack just didn't talk
3:39 am
about hope because he thought it was just a nice slogan to get votes. i mean, he and i and so many believe that -- what else do you have if you don't have hope? >> governor, what is she saying there? >> you know, with all due respect to the first lady, i am sitting in d.c. this morning. and i thought about when i came up here yesterday that i needed to take shots to make sure i don't get infected whatever it is gets into people they're completely out of touch from the reality of living in this bubble. the fact is if you look at what has happened since the election. the dow is hipght hitting almost 20,000. people going back to work. companies like ford and carrier sitting down with the president-elect. the man hasn't even taken office yet and already talking about how they can bring jobs back there is a real sense of optimism and hope about people going back to work and having control of our borders again. i'm just stunned when i hear her say that, you know, everything has been coming up roses for eight years and
3:40 am
i think they really need to get out more. not to hawaii. not to vacation on the beach. they need to get out and talk to some coal miners and waitresses and cab drivers and bellman at hotels. that's where they will find out what people are feeling. >> no more sipping lattes, huh? >> could be. >> because it turns out hope is an actual thing as opposed to a phrase. that's what makes all the difference. governor, thank you very much for joining us this morning. don't get infected in d.c. okay? he is inoculated. >> i'm leaving this morning and headed to florida. >> thank you, governor. >> thanks. >> other headlines, accused killer robert durst says he was high on meth during his apparent confession on the hbo series the jinx. >> kill them all, of course. >> this is a strange twist the millionaire real estate hair. he hadn't realized his mike was still on during that admission. durst is on trial for the
3:41 am
murder of susan murman. prosecutors say he shot her to prevent her from talking to investigator who were looking into his 1982 disappearance of his wife. such a bizarre story. and more blood on new york city mayor bill de blasio's hand. this time an orphan deer in manhattan. antler bucks swam to new york. died from stress while in the city's custody waiting to be relocated. de blasio wanted to euthanize it but new york governor andrew cuomo said two years. staat staten island chuck died two days after being dropped by de blasio on groundhog day. that's sad. hillary clinton's holiday party apparently not a very merry one. one guest telling the "new york post" it was like a wake with the ban. if he has been gathering held at the plaza hotel in new york city. same top donors who helped fund her failed presidential bid. among those guests vogue editor and holiday producer harvey weinstein. you weren't invited, pete.

>> welcome back. in his last press conference of 2016, president obama spent his time scolding the media for its coverage of hillary clinton and wikileaks. >> i'm finding it a little curious that everybody is suddenly acting surprised that this looked like it was disadvantaging hillary clinton because you guys wrote about it every day. every single leak. about every little juicy tid bit of political gossip. this was an obsession that dominated the news coverage. i think the coverage of her and the issues was troubling. >> well, here to react is a staff writer for the federalist. bree, great to see you this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> i'm sort of shocked and a little surprised by. this because i remember weekend and weekend here on "fox & friends" we would put up and sort of tabulate the coverage from the mainstream media for that particular week on whether or not they had covered hillary clinton's email scandal. and on the nightly newscast
3:48 am
it was like zero minutes, one minute, less than that is he scolding the media for coverage? it didn't seem like they got very much to begin with. >> you're completely right. what's most disturbing about obama's criticism is not the content of the dnc emails, right? it's not that the democratic party basically rigged the election for hillary clinton. it's not that hillary clinton's advisors think that catholics are evil. is heup set by the fact that the media decided to actually cover this in the short amount of time that they covered it and it almost kind of implies that he is kind of expecting like hey, guys, you know, i thought we had a deal. i thought we had kind of an arrangement. you don't cover things bad about me or about the candidate that i endorse in exchange, you know, i let you off and on all ove -- fawn r me the last eight years and every gun issue i do. there isn't enough soap in all the world to clean the brown off of all the media's noses after they spent the entire election sucking up
3:49 am
and brown nosing to hillary clinton. >> how do you think the mainstream media will look at his comments yesterday about why hillary clinton lost this election? he made some interesting remarks about liberal elites and sipping lattes and maybe we need to come away from our west coast, east coast viewpoints and get out there into the cities, perhaps, where we lost this election? yeah, i think that. i think it's very ironic coming from president obama who is pretty much the embodiment of coastal elitism, right? i think that going forward, we're going to probably see a lot of pieces media obsession with leaks. i think they are going to carry the water for obama just like they do every single time. and also in the wake of the election, it really has been starting to see the media just really double down on their narrative that they forecasted so incorrectly and so wrong and so off base all throughout the election sighing kel. so, really, i don't think
3:50 am
that they're going to learn anything from obama's press conference and by learning something i mean stop listening to him. i think they're going to take what he says and run with it and they're just going to double down on whatever narrative i is selling. >> well said. very ar articulate at 6:00 in the morning, bree. the president was sipping a latte while he was giving a press conference.

4:05 am
from washington, d.c. with more on the president's final news conference of the year. good morning, garrett. >> good morning, y'all. the president certainly covered a lot of ground in his final end of the year press conference. front and center was russia's interference in our election. both republican and democrat lawmakers have been critical of president obama's handling of the russian directed cyber hacking campaign. but yesterday mr. obama defended his administration's response which he said actually began back in september when he met with russian president vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g-20 summit and warned him there would be serious consequences if russia didn't, quote, cut it out. >> our goal continues to be to send a clear message to russia or others not to do this to us because we can do stuff to you. but, it is also important for us to do that in a thoughtful, methodical way. some of it we do publicly. some of it in a way they
4:06 am
will know but not all will. >> the cyber hacking campaign was orchestrated at the highest level of the russian government and added that not much happens in russia without president putin's approval. president obama also criticized the media for its coverage of the hacks throughout the election and for focusing so much on the located emails which he described as an obsession. >> i'm finding it a little curious that serve suddenly acting surprised that this looked like it was disadvantaging hillary clinton because you guys wrote about it every day. every single leak how about every little juicy tid bit of political gossip. this was obsession that dominated the news coverage. >> the debate over election publicly played out between the white house and the trump transition team this
4:07 am
week. but yesterday the president rejected the notion that that controversy has somehow disrupted the transition process. back to you all. >> thank you, garrett. >> tough words. cut it out. like that 80's meme. >> that's all you can do it. cut it out. don't do it or we'll do it back to you. >> from "full house." >> that or double dare? cut it out? >> but if i'm vladimir putin and is he like whoa, you cut it out, you cut it out now. it's something like during recess in school. but also, what's interesting to hear. >> how revealing. >> hear him talk about the election and hillary clinton. he seemed to point the finger a little bit, i mean, he went pretty far actually saying liberal elites living on the west coast, east coast, need dom down off their chariots and come into those towns, west virginia. areas where we really lost this election. >> i thought he was actually spot on when he was talking about liberals and not speaking directly to the american people and sipping on their lattes as we have been talking about this morning. >> out of touch.
4:08 am
>> out of touch. how the american people was feeling. he was spot on. >> can't get in touch without misrepresenting yourself. gone so far left. can't say now we are going to be politically incorrect. that's who they are. they are not having intraspeculation right now. >> don't try to get in touch. try to point the finger. point the blame. that's what hillary clinton was doing last night. she was at a party thanking her donors for this election and she had this to say about james comey. that's where she is putting the blame. listen.
4:09 am
>> so we had governor mike huckabee on just 30 minutes ago and he was saying, you know, when you are in her position have you got to go buy yourself a mirror and look at n. a and realize what happened. also the importance of connecting with voters and actually hearing from them and that was the big problem for democrats this time. they didn't understand how people were feeling, here is what he said. >> if hillary would like to spend $4 she can go down to walgreen's and buy a mirror. look into it hillary. that's why you lost. let me be very clear. when you win an election, you go out and thank the people because it's their shoulders on whom you wrote rodo victory. if you lose, you don't go
4:10 am
out and blame everybody in sight. you go out and accept it you can imagine an nfl quarterback after the game that the team lost saying gee, i'm the greatest quarterback in the league and i would have won this game single-handedly had it not been for lousy linemen in front of me. what kind of play will you expect from them the next time? i'm just stunned by this. >> first it was the deplorables and then now it's the russians and hackers and everybody else. >> i do think though when it comes to russia, i mean it, is a huge challenge for the united states. and for the world and president-elect trump and rex tillerson is his secretary of state, they have got a real opportunity to press that re-set button and figure out how to deal with them. saying cut it out is not the answer. >> can't do worse than red lines you don't enforce what the policy of this administration has been turning that page, they have got a lot of advantages because there is a lot of upside to be had. >> they can't get away with that stuff. >> exactly. a lot of headlines to get to this morning. breaking overnight and some
4:11 am
sad news. an officer is shot after a traffic stop turns deadly. the scene unfolding in a wal-mart parking lot in dallas, oregon. officials are saying three officers pulled over the suspect on suspicion of a dui. the suspect then turned his gun on an officer shooting him in the leg. he was rushed to the hospital where he is now recovering this morning. state police say the suspect was shot and did die on the scene. and the stun of terrorists of usama bin laden denied into egypt. omar bin laden and his wife arriving in cairo international airport this morning. after checking his saudi airport security officials found his name on a list banned from entering the country. both deported to turkey couple also denied entry back in 2008. and the obama mass landing in hawaii just a short time ago for their last vacation as the first family. president obama holding melania's hand a --maliyah's had them.

first visit vacation every year vacationing on the island where president obama grew up. they will be there for a full 17 days. and president-elect donald trump is at it again. using a nickname for one of his defeated political opponents. >> in utah, i had this character that nobody ever saw before. nobody ever heard of him before. i said to my wife, that's correct. that's his name. he said evan mcmuffin. do you believe this? >> he is talking about edward mcmullen. a third party candidate once thought to be a threat. posting this photo from a local mcdonald's before the election. >> mcmuffin, that might stick. >> i think it's already stuck. >> mcif you have fin. >> while michelle has announcement to make just give up, america. >> see, now we're feeling

>> welcome back. her husband ran on the slogan hope and change. so does michelle obama think administration achieved that? michelle obama told oprah on a special set to air on
4:17 am
monday. >> yes, i do. because we feel the difference now. >> yeah. >> see, now we're feeling whatnot having hope feels like. you know. hope is necessary. it's a necessary concept. >> what do we do if we don't have hope, oprah? >> ask oprah. but is it really fair for the first lady to say the trump presidency has america feeling no hope? here to debate that question fox news contributor david webb and fox news contributor and democratic strategist richard fowler. richard, first to you, do you agree with the first lady? >> well, i think i think you have the wrong frame of what she is trying to say here. for the past eight years the president has pushed the idea of hope and he has done so. we have 72 consecutive months of job growth. this the is longest period where corporations have actually created jobs for the american people. don't get me i don' wrong. i don't think everybody is feeling that. this election shows hillary clinton or crump both
4:18 am
candidates didn't do enough to come from a place of hope or change. i'm not saying either candidate did 245. i think what the first lady is saying is her husband and the former -- current president, sort of built this idea of hope and he tried to make it happen and neither of the two candidates now the president-elect and hillary clinton they didn't do that. >> so, david, this feeling of hope has been pervasive then i guess and that's why hillary clinton won this election then, right? >> yeah. i missed the point where neither candidate. i love richard's talking points. richard, you're great at that you brought the 72 months in there gout everything covered. the fact is that americans needed real change. they needed a change from the failed policies of barack obama. they needed real change from the failures. but this is michelle obama who once said for the first time in her adult life she was proud of her country because her husband was elected president. n. that frame. it's offensive to me. it's offensive to americans. she doesn't determine the hope of the nation but the voters who went out there and said we need a change from these policies, look at
4:19 am
the trump bump. look at the feeling. look at the animal spirit in america. look at the return of a feeling that we can achieve or we have a shot at starting a business. those are the things. you want to talk about job growth, how about job loss by small businesses. more failing, less started. now with trump we'll see what happens. >> what about that side of it, richard, this idea that we're seeing a rally, the dow hitting 20,000. small businesses getting excited about what a trump presidency might mean for their bottom lines? isn't that a form of hope? >> i think, listen, don't get me wrong, i said at the beginning and i said in my talking points that i sent over to the producers. here's the thing. 50% of america who likes donald trump. 50% of america who doesn't like donald trump. what this election shows us is that our country is divided. you don't need talking points to see that talk to the american people and figure that out. now, what we -- what donald trump has got to do over the next four years in his first 100 days is find a way to bring americans together. and bashing the first lady, which donald trump didn't
4:20 am
do -- which is a good idea is not the answer. how you do it is work with president obama who president obama said yesterday in his press conference is he willing to work with donald trump. >> hold on a second, richard, i love the fact that you want to go on about who is bashing who. but, president-elect trump has actually gone out and said he has enjoyed his talks with president obama. >> exactly. i just said that. >> and that. >> i just said that. >> michelle obama turns around and says this about his presidency? come on, you can't have it both ways. >> first of all, david, if you listen carefully to what michelle obama said there was no noun there. there was no noun there. she didn't mention the word donald trump whatsoever. >> the context of the conversation was about the president and -- richard. you are assuming exactly what it is. >> you are assuming the context. these not what it. >> i read it. >> she didn't say donald trump. >> america is united. thanks, richard, david,.

>> welcome back. it's time for your news by the numbers. $10 billion. that's how much taxpayers will have to fork over in 2017 to fund subsidize obamacare plans. >> excellent. >> next up 333,000. that's how many illegal immigrants president obama deported in 2015. that's the lowest number for any year of his presidency. and finally 28. that's how many americans applied for canadian citizenship to avoid a trump presidency. canada's immigration services department says none appear though to have come from hollywood.
4:25 am
[ laughter ] >> interesting. >> i'm shocked. i'm just shocked about that. >> at least 28 people put their money where their mouth was. >> that's true. president obama vowing retaliation for russian hacking of the election with a message for vladimir putin. >> what i can tell you is that the intelligence i have seen gives me great confidence in their assessment that the russians carried out the attack. i felt the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell them to cut it out and there would be serious consequences if he didn't. >> you cut it out. this a new report fbi and fbi director james comey now agrees with the cia that russia and vladimir putin were behind the hacking. >> here to react is author of guilty as sin, ed klein who has some great sources on this. ed, do we know definitively that russia was behind this? >> no, we don't. what we do know is that the
4:26 am
intelligence community is talking about the scope, nature, and intent. what does that mean? we don't know what that means because david nunez, the chairman of the house intelligence committee has asked the intelligence agencies to appear and tell inte what they know. but they have refused because there is a fierce battle going on behind the scenes among the 17 agencies about actually what happened. you know, this is all kind of smoke and mirrors. when you stop to think about the cia didn't know that india and pakistan got nuclear weapons. they didn't know about the fall of the soviet union. they missed everything, including the weapons of mass destruction. now they're saying they know for sure? they don't know for sure. >> and the fbi disagrees. >> that's right. >> and there is disagreement interriblely as you said. also don't know whether the intent as you mentioned was it throw the election for
4:27 am
donald trump or to discredit our system. if indeed they did hack it, what they were trying to do. >> i have been told that, you know, on the one hand that president obama is putting kind of a calm, no drama obama face in front of the american public but line the scenes what we are really seeing is what we saw with michelle when she was interviewed by oprah winfrey saying hope is all lost. there is a lot of sense of anger inside the white house. and i think they put the pressure on comey at the, director of the fbi to get on the team. i think knowing how comey behaves because is he a very political guy he said okay. i'll get on the team but let's actually find out whether putin really had
4:28 am
intent to just create chaos. which he certainly did. or whether he was in favor of donald trump. i'm not so sure that he wants donald trump to be president of the united states. >> someone who seems to be sure about that and who is also pretty angry about the results is hillary clinton. she had, what she calls a holiday party two night ago with some of the donors putting the blame on comey. what's your take on that? we have that. let's play it? >> voters make their decisions in the final days breaking against me because of the fbi letter from fbi director comey. and nate silver believes, i happen to believe this, that that letter most likely made the difference in the outcome. vladimir putin himself directed the covert cyber attack against our electoral system, against our
4:29 am
democracy, apparently because he has a personal beef against me. this is not just an attack against me and my campaign, although that may have added fuel to it. this is an attack against our country. we are well beyond normal political concerns here. this is about the integrity of our democracy and the security of our nation. >> so this is -- she didn't lose because it's her fault. it's somebody else's fault. >> james comey. >> nate silver said it it's got to be true. >> i have written four books about hillary clinton. one common denominator that goes throughout the books. she is never wrong. jennifer flowers. it's a right wing conspiracy. monica lewenski she is a loanaloonyt toons stalker. >> maybe there were a few people swayed by that at the
4:30 am

>> in early september when i saw president putin in china, i felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly.
5:16 am
and tell him to cut it out or there were going to be serious consequences if he didn't. >> i think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action. and we will at a time and place of our own choosing. >> that's president obama promising retaliation against russia over the alleged election hacking. after reminding americans that he issued putin a cut it out warning back in september. but if this is true, then why is he only acting now? and what does cut it out really mean? joining me to weigh in is former cia operative and llc mike baker. you know a few things about these topics. is vladimir putin hearing cut it out and cutting it out? >> well, you would typically in the world of foreign policy and national security interests you have got several options. one, would of course, be sanctions. the other is the famous cut
5:17 am
it out warning. so, he went with that one. look, the problem here is -- i don't mean to be glib on this because this is very, very serious. do you have to be appropriate in your response. particularly in this world that we live in today with cyber security issues. part of the problem with cyber warfare. however you want to refer to it is the attribution. identifying the points of origin. then you have got to figure out what is on par? what is a response? because these things can escalate and we are in a new world now, where this is new territory for all the countries out there. so he is right. the president is right in the sense that you have to be very cautious. but the problem with president obama's situation is he has lost all leverage with putin and the russian government over the past few years. he doesn't have, from their perspective, he doesn't have any credibility. so they don't, you know, when he sits down and says have you got to cut it out, there is going to be cobs sequences. they already watched him. they rolle rolled in to georgia and ukraine and took crimea.
5:18 am
they watched what has happened in syria as russians and iranians have built up their influence over the past several years. they don't believe it when he says "cut it out." >> that's a great segue way at the press conference yesterday that president obama held, he also talked about america standing in the world. i want to play a really quick clip and get to you respond. >> almost every country on earth sees america as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago. nerd, by so many measures, our country is stronger and more prosperous than it was when we started. it's a situation that i'm proud to leave for my successor. >> hold on, mike, he says we are stronger over the last eight years. a little different tune than what you were just saying. >> yeah. i guess the president and i disagree on this one. look, i respect that he's trying to set the table for his legacy as he walks out the door. that's what every president does. but, i don't understand which world he's living in right now.
5:19 am
because, you know, if you travel overseas or you just sit and objectively study what's happening overseas in the various areas where we have crises and hot spots now, it's hard to back up that argument with actual facts or evidence. we have had a foreign policy over the last several years during the course of this current administration that's been inconsistent in its messaging. it has not followed through. and that creates chaos. and as we have tried to back off the world stage, as the president obama has tried to say, look, rightly so if the sense of course you want to focus on here at home. of course we want to focus on america. he has been backing off of world leadership. when you do that somebody is going to try to take that topped off position. and you create chaos and create opportunity for countries that do not have our best interest the at heart. >> absolutely. mike baker, former cia operative. you know these things well. well-said. lack of leadership creates a vacuum. >> thank you.
5:20 am

5:25 am
elector as futile fight. arizona elector robert graham. good morning to both of you and thanks for being here. daniel, start with you to convince electors to vote against donald trump. why are you doing this? >> i think donald trump presents a unique danger. one this countries had never faced in a commander-in-chief before. he is someone who spent his entire campaign attack the constitution. threatening to sue journalists, proposing to register people based on religion. now we see he has these close ties with russia. secretary of state appointee one of russia's highest awards. he has business interests he won't divest from. kids coming to technology meeting. the man is a mess and totally up fit. this is why the founders created the electoral college to prevent a man like donald trump from becoming commander-in-chief. >> would you do the same thing if it were reversed if it were hillary clinton that had won?
5:26 am
>> no, i don't think hillary clinton is completely unfit to be president. i think she is imminently qualified. she also won the popular vote by 3 million. so, no. i certainly would not be opposing that. >> you are an elector. you are going to be voting on monday for mr. trump. how do you respond to this petition? i hear you have received thousands of letters of threats, right? >> yeah. well, it's out of hand when you have such a minority group of people, such a small group of people that are pushing so hard against a system where millions, if not hundreds of millions of people still appreciate this whole system of democracy. you know, daniel said that his opinion is that hillary clinton is more qualified. well, that's why we vote. you know, they often forget that electoral college when you look at a state like arizona we have 11 electoral college members, these 11 votes are going to donald trump because he won the popular vote in arizona. he won the popular vote in most of the states is why he is up to 306. not just a few of these
5:27 am
little urban areas. the pressure they're putting on people to -- when they threaten us, when people are following us, the piles of mail, the hundreds of thousands of emails, i think it's more annoying than anything. but it's actually flying in the face. daniel talks about the constitution. well the electoral college is part of the constitution and we appreciate that. >> some of these letters, robert, you have received. trump clearly doesn't want the job. is he totally incompetent and not doing what is required. up to you to save us from trump. we are counting on to you make it right. daniel, i mean, you've heard from folks that have received death threats. is this how we should be treating our democracy? i mean the fact the election is over and that people have spoken? i mean, is this where we want to be right now, really? >> well, a couple of things. the election is not over. the election is monday. threats are totally inappropriate. we have not asked anybody to contact the electors at all. other than a very small group that we're working with, threats are inappropriate. no one should do that you
5:28 am
know, you keep talking about democracy. hillary clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. if we were a democracy she would be president. >> that's not the system. daniel, it's not the system if it were about the popular vote you would campaign differently. it's not the way it is set up. >> you're right. >> the system is that the electors can vote for anyone they wish. so you can't have it both ways. you can't say oh it's the system so bad to abad about the popular vote. we say the electors can vote for anyone we want. you are attacking the democracy. >> robert, quickly, have you changed your mind. >> no. i will tell what you donald j. trump has the qualifications to be president of the united states. we are already seeing it in what he is doing it with his cabinet choices. daniel, sorry to say you are going to lose again on monday. >> i'm sorry an oil executive for secretary of state with no diplomatic experience? >> that's all the time we have this morning. thank you for being with us. >> thank you, abby. >> thank you. >> all right. coming up. shocking opinion. even by the "new york times" standards.

5:46 am
and i think he was spot on. i think, you know, it was a reflection, you know, needing to get in these communities. liberals need to go out in communities and talk to voters this those areas. used to be liberal strongholds, west virginia. what happened there? that was bill clinton territory. >> we whin we talk about economics. i think the party wins who talks more about economics. if we both talk about economics. both republicans and democrats. i feel like democrats have the best chance at winning and, again, it doesn't mean you have to give up your progressive values or change a position on a progressive issue. it just means the emphasis needs to be on what's on people's minds. and what's on people's minds is their own economic status. their own wages, their own pension, their own security. healthcare, whatnot. when we talk about those issues, we win in places like west virginia. we got beat by 28% in rural communities. that's not accept. >> well, when you listen to mr. trump, he will say you also need the right messenger to talk about the issues that the american people cares about. >> that surprises me that
5:47 am
donald trump would say that. >> i know. but when you look at the democratic bench and who is sort of next up to lead the party to success, and when asked people in the party who their top choices are the average age is 75. that's a little bit high. >> joe biden. >> bernie sanders. >> elizabeth warren? >> that's bit misleading those are the three most popular people biden was vice president. bernie sanders ran for president. and elizabeth warren has been a famous name before she even got into politics. it's a little bit skewed. >> who are the incoming people? >> i think you look at people like cory booker who is a great young leader. i think we have a huge stable in the house of representatives joe crowley our caucus chair great young leader emerging. others over the next year or two. >> you would say there is a bench? >> i want to ask you said the economic piece when you are talking economics. there is cultural aspect to this. you hear barack obama saying elite coastal, you know, politically correct. and then you hear -- you
5:48 am
watch a guy like donald trump say i'm going to say merry christmas. and why tonight we say man of the year? and your average american goes yeah, why are we bending to all of these political elite that tell me to be politically correct? how do you fix that? there is a sense that you are totally out of touch with people in america. >> i say merry christmas. >> your party doesn't. >> if you're jewish i'm not going to tell you merry christmas, right? and if i don't know what you are, i'm going to say happy holidays. i may say merry christmas too to people. that to me is not a major issue. i say merry christmas. a lot of democrats say merry christmas. i think that's one issue that just tries to divide everybody up. but the reality of it is. >> or radical islamic terrorism or other aspects of political correctness goes awry. now you are saying extremist as opposed to calling the enemy what it is. isn't that a disconnect for people. >> it could be on some instances. i think most of all, regardless of what we're talking about on those issues, if you are talking about bread and butter issues, people don't really care about whether you're bay or straight.

move to canada with my entire family. >> but it looks like a lot of those celebrities got cold feet now that they know it's 20 below zero up there. we want to find out how many people move to canada, we have the answer, "fox & friends" hour four starts right now. this is the longest show in television and this is the fourth hour. we love it. that's right. this is the bonus hour. >> it is the bonus hour. >> you could argue this is the best hour. or the 6:00 a.m. hour. actually, vote for your favorite hour this morning, will you? what's your favorite hour? >> this is certainly when we're the most awake. >> or not. >> or tired by now. >> or totally hyped up on caffei caffeine. >> we have so much caffeine, that's why we're going to have a great interview with sean spicer from the trump transition team. he's going to be on our show in mere moments because there's a new announcement trt trump team this morning. >> it could be him. i know he's up for communications -- the press
6:02 am
secretary. >> can you announce your own? i guess you could, yeah. all right, news about russia, president obama vowing retaliation against russia for election hacking. blasting the media for obsessing over the e-mail scandal as a result. >> live for us in washington, d.c. with more on the president's final news conference of the year before off to hawaii now for 17 days, good morning, garrett. >> good morning, abby, pete and clayton. yeah, usually these end of the year press conferences are where the president will take a victory lap of sorts and list out everything his administration has accomplished overed year. this year though in president obama's final end of the year press conference it was almost entirely about russia. in particularly, the kremlin's interference in our election. the president said the cyber hacking campaign was orchestrated at the highest levels of the russian government. and without specifically pointing the finger at president vladimir putin, he added that almost nothing happens in russia without putin's approval.
6:03 am
>> our goal continues to be to send a clear message to russia, or others, not to do this to us. because we can do stuff to you. but it is also important for us to do it in a thoughtful, methodical way. some of it we do publicly. some of it we will do in a way that they know but not everybody will. >> president obama defended his administration's response to the cyber hacking and said it began back in september when he met with russian president vladimir putin on the sidelines of the g20 summit and warned him there would be serious consequences if russia didn't, quote, cut it out. mr. obama also had some harsh words for the media's coverage of the hacks during the election. and for focusing so much on the leaked e-mails, which he described as an obsession. >> i'm finding it a little curious that everybody's suddenly acting surprised that this looked like it was
6:04 am
disadvantaging hillary clinton because you guys wrote about it every day. every single leak about every little juicy tidbit of political gossip. this was an obsession that dominated the news coverage. >> and president obama was also asked on his way out if this was his last press conference before he leaves office next month, and he said he'll have to think about it. until then though, as you mentioned, the president and his first family will be in hawaii over the next two weeks for their christmas vacation. and looking outside who wouldn't want to be there now? >> i know. we'll have a lot of time to think about it over there, 17 days. >> thank you, garrett. >> thanks, garrett. we want to bring in sean spicer this morning. we've been talking about him all morning. there he is. is that a christmas tie, by the way? >> it is. >> an ugly christmas tie? >> an ugly sweater tie. >> it's a good one. >> i didn't say it. we want to get some news this morning, but we want to first talk about what the president said yesterday at this news
6:05 am
conference in talking about hacking and basically said three months ago i went to vladimir putin and said cut it out. and it's a big problem interference in the u.s. presidential election. and we should look at it. what's your response? >> well, i agree. i mean, no foreign entity should ever be interfering with our elections or undermining the integrity of them. but it's a very interesting story how it's evolved. prior to the election it was the department of homeland security briefing us and the campaigns saying, you know, we have high confidence in our election systems, the way that we vote, ie, various systems throughout the country, paper ballots, machines, et cetera, are such that no one could interfere with an election and we need everyone to stand firm. and then donald trump comes out and has a resounding win and suddenly the tune changes real quick because the presumed coronation of hillary clinton didn't go as planned. so, look, i think we can all condemn any entity from
6:06 am
interfering but there's zero evidence it had any effect on the outcome. donald trump won resoundingly with 306 electoral votes, 223 counties throughout this country including multiple that president obama carried handily. so i'm a little concerned at how the left is trying to focus on delegitimizing the election. they lost. they lost because they didn't have an effective message like donald trump. and i think that they should instead of focusing on that, you know, are trying to deflect and talk about this whole issue. >> there's a lot of attempts to discredit, no doubt. >> i wanted your thoughts because mr. trump was up tweeting early this morning slamming china's seizure of a u.s. drone. china steals united states navy research drone in international waters, rips it out of the water and takes it to china in unprecedented act. chris murphy tweets, a 7:30 a.m. saturday escalation of
6:07 am
diplomatic crisis with china via twitter with misspelling. when you're talking about something as sensitive as our relationship to china, is that how things should be handled? as you know, one tweet could set off serious alarm bells in that relationship. >> well, it's a fact. i mean, it's a fact. he tweeted out what happened. something that was reported in the media yesterday. i'm somewhat shocked that people are surprised that he's tweeting exactly what happened. china came along, took an asset of the united states government's and brought it to china. i think mr. trump is rightly expressing the concerns and frustrations of our government right now -- or just as a citizen, frankly. i think we should all be outraged and i don't think it's anything different than reported in the media yesterday. >> there's a sense over the years that things like this overt or covert have been ignored. enemies in iran also taking people hostage. now they're taking drones, other instances where we've been slighted. what does a tweet like this say about how president-elect trump
6:08 am
will handle these types of flash points? because i think it's easy to dismiss and say it's twitter, it's terrible. i mean, there's thought behind these things. how would he react differently than president obama has? >> well, you saw it with the carrier instance as well. i mean, he's not going to sit back and just let stuff happen either domestically or internationally. he is going to pick up the phone. he's going to get things done. you saw how he saved those jobs out in indiana for carrier. he's the kind of guy that's going to end business as usual and get things done. he's a man of action. i think we've seen it already through the transition. and we're going to see it really forcefully on january 20th going forward. >> i want to get your take on something hillary clinton said on thursday night. she was meeting with a group of donors to thank them for their support during her campaign. and she seems like inside we had ed klein on earlier and he seemed to suggest that sort of inside that bubble that there's no way that they are taking responsibility for losing this election. and she said to those people in the room the other night she said, look, james comey
6:09 am
releasing that letter definitely changed some votes in those swing states and that is probably why we lost this election. what do you make of that? >> i mean, i think they're probably at stage eight in their 12 step program of grief. look, this all happened because hillary had -- i mean, if she hadn't had a server, if she hadn't written what she wrote, i think there's a denial of responsibility on her part for doing some of the things that caused this. comey wouldn't have been investigating her for the secret server if she hadn't evaded government regulations in the first place. if she hadn't set up the server. there is a degree of personal responsibility that hillary clinton and her team have to take. but, you know, look, if this is how they want to focus on it, you know, so be it. but i just think that if you want to look at it objectively, at some point they need to take responsibility for their actions. >> all right. we do have a fox news alert to get to about mr. trump
6:10 am
nominating congressman -- director of the office of management and budget. first we thought we were going to have you onto announce you were going to become the next press secretary, but your thoughts quickly on this latest news? >> mick mulvaney is a fiscal hawk, fighting against government waste, efficiency. this is somebody keeping in line with what you've seen with the rest of the trump picks for his cabinet. he's going to get things done, he's going to tackle the $20 trillion budget deficit that we have right now and start to chip away to get rid of government efficiencies, find outdated projects and plans and government waste. but he is going to be a real champion of the american taxpayer in that office. >> what about press secretary? you as press secretary, if that were true would you as press secretary make your own announcement. >> right here on "fox & friends". >> right here wearing a christmas tie? >> well, there's been no
6:11 am
additional staff announcements. i'm sure that we will let "fox & friends" know when we have additional announcements. >> handled very well. >> i think we got to focus on the jobs that we know of. congratulations to abby. >> oh, thanks. >> going to be the official slot on the couch. that was a job announcement that we were all rooting for. >> that's so sweet of you. thank you. >> we all internally as well. >> we wish you all the luck as well in whatever happens. >> nice tie. >> have a great christmas, sean. >> merry christmas. see you soon. we have other headlines to get to this morning starting with this story, breaking overnight, an officer shot during a deadly traffic stop. the scene unfolding in a walmart parking lot in dallas, oregon. three officers pulled over the suspect on suspicion of dui. police say the suspect then turned his gun on an officer shooting him in the leg. officers returning fire killing the suspect. the injured officer luckily is expected to be okay. and this story, the son of a

6:13 am
all responded. >> with a grateful heart we are very excited to announce that we have received enough donations for every veterans' grave at arlington national cemetery to receive a wreath this year. >> that is amazing. besides arlington 1.2 million wreaths will be put on veterans' graves nationwide. >> very cool. >> thanks for doing that. coming up on the show, president-elect trump predicting a bright future for the country. >> we're going to win so much, you're going to go to paul ryan, you're going to go, mr. speaker, please, please, we can't stand winning this much. >> i love it. >> too much winning. >> how is his message resonating with the voters, the brand new dials when we come back. plus, this might be the greatest secret santa ever. the heartwarming surprise just in time for christmas. it is the best video.

let me just state this as clearly as i can. i am going to keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country. >> that was president-elect trump last night in orlando promising to fight terrorism. the latest stop of his thank you tour. >> his thank you merry christmas tour, indeed. so how is his post election message resonating with americans? here to break it all down as she did during the election, president and partner -- i sometimes get that wrong but know who it is, it's lee carter. >> good morning, lee. >> nice to be here. >> how are these speeches
6:18 am
resonating with people? >> he is doing a fantastic job. now, most people can't watch it without breaking out laughing at least once. but the bottom line is people are loving his message on the economy, on jobs, people are -- and i've even seen democrats not saying they love him but coming over. >> one thing he says is buy american, hire american. let's look at how people felt about that. >> and we're going to put our people back to work in the process. it's time to help get americans off of welfare and back into the labor market. [ cheers and applause ] rebuilding this country with american hands and with american workers. my administration will follow two simple rules, buy american and hire american, right? we're going to do it. >> so you can see there republicans and independents absolutely loved it. gave it an a-plus and democrats even gave it a c.
6:19 am
this is a really strong message. >> which is like an a. >> that's a high grade, yeah. >> even in polling numbers people are really, really optimistic again. great, great news for the trump administration. >> recent pick, an important one with secretary of state rex tillerson chosen, but unknown to some. so he's been talking about him a little bit. here's the clip of donald trump talking about rex tillerson. >> today i announced my plans to nominate rex tillerson, right? the chief executive officer and chairman of exxon mobil to be the next secretary of state. rex is one of the greatest and most skilled global business leaders of our time. made some of the greatest deals ever made in the oil industry or any industry. a great diplomat. a strong man, a tough man. >> so this pick has been somewhat surprising to most people. you're seeing there republicans gave this a b-plus, independents
6:20 am
a c, democrats an f. now, what i heard wasn't necessarily that he didn't like the pick as much as they don't understand the pick. so republicans are supporting him pretty much no matter what he does. independents are sort of flat. they want information. they want to know why. they want to know who this guy is. and democrats are assuming the worst right now. so he needs to give them some information. talk about trade, talk about the kinds of things he's going to bring to the table. and i think people will come around. >> something he loves to talk about is winning. he says we are going to win so much you're going to get tired of winning. >> your head is going to be spinning. absolutely. time for this last clip. one more -- i guess we don't. >> okay. >> you need to tell us there's these things called commercials and we have to do them, but we would talk to you all day if we could. i also normally don't comment on your shoes, but these are not yours, are they? >> they're abby's. >> i forgot my shoes today. >> i don't know that i'll be borrowing -- but we love you, lee. >> love being here.

while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis.

welcome back. president obama taking a victory lap yesterday touting his economic progress over the last eight years. >> since i signed obamacare into law our businesses have added more than 15 million new jobs. the economy is undoubtedly more durable than it was in the days when we relied on oil from unstable nations and banks took whiskey bets with your money. add it all up and last year the poverty rate fell at the fastest rate in almost 50 years. >> but how much of this is actually true? charles payne, host of "making money" on the fox business network joins us now to break it all down. eight years, we're more

prosperous now than we were when president obama came into office. >> in a way that's disingenuous. we were in the throes of a major, major economic meltdown that kind of happens once every 50 to 100 years. i think it's unfortunate that barack obama would want to use that as, you know, his hallmark. in other words he wants to compare his presidency to the worst period in like three generations instead of saying, hey, compared to just typical when a president gets a chance to govern our nation for eight years, what usually happens? i'll tell you what didn't happen. we didn't get one year of 3% growth. i'll tell you what else happened. millions and millions of people left the job market. we did create jobs, but a lot of them are low paying jobs. in fact, people who lost their jobs at the beginning of the great recession often got a job later that didn't even pay as much as the one they had before. so -- >> you're saying it's the size and the pace. there were jobs that were added -- >> sure, there's no doubt about that. >> temporary and not as many. >> we've got the most amazing

economy in the history of mankind. let's never forget that. and it's elastic. the way it's designed the way it's always worked sometimes the worse something gets, the stronger it comes back. this time it got really bad, and it only creeped back. for instance he's talking about the inflection point in poverty last year. of course it finally had a big move, but look where it is overall. it went down every single year under his presidency until last year. >> talk about trump likes to pay lip service to this we're going to bring jobs back, but a lot of those jobs as you know are automated jobs and they're not coming back. so they're being replaced by robots. even if you did bring the manufacturing back, the robots would be doing that. how do we confront this new economy? >> this week the ceo of ibm wrote a letter, ginny, she essentially says, listen, forget about blue collar jobs and white collar jobs. there are going to be millions of jobs created by necessarily

don't need a four-year degrees, these are the quote/unquote vocational jobs of next century, people who learn how to code. people can fix those robots, people who can do may want nans on those robots. those empty factories have been to retro fitted to fit in those robots. amazing opportunity, but the big complaint and big fear is we may not have the right workforce to do it right now. >> and you need the regulatory environment and the tax environment so the companies want to do those types of things here as opposed to elsewhere. >> there's no doubt about it. this is what we're seeing with the stock market and the sentiment across the board whether it's manufacturing, whether it's home building, all has to do with the fact that people believe -- professionals, not just folks who are out there, you know, going to political rallies, but professionals in several industries to your point that because you have a republican president who's promised some dramatic changes and a republican congress, we're going to get those through. so that part should be the low hanging fruit. that should be the low hanging fruit. that's why the stock market is up through the roof.
