6:01 am
nations including refy -- refugees. >> this is a ban on prospective travel from countries trying to prevent terrorists in this country from countries that have a recent history of training and exporting and harboring activities th. is what we do to keep the nation safe. this whole idea they're being separated and ripped from their families is temporary and circumstantial in terms of whether you were one of those 300 some already on a aircraft or trying to get on one. as opposed to the over 3,000 children who will be forever more separated from their parents who perished on 9/11. >> shannon: john roberts joins us. tomorrow at 8:00 p.m., john, breaking news. >> they've turned on the fire hose of news first thing monday morning. we're taking a sip wherever we can.
6:02 am
the breaking news that president trump tweeted a short time ago that he will be announcing his pick to replace judge scalia on the supreme court. here is what he tweeted. i have made my decision on who i will nominate for the united states supreme court. it will be announced live, tuesday at 8:00 p.m. picking up his prime time slot. who are the finalists? it's neil gorsuch in denver, the one in the center. thomas hardiman from the third circuit in pennsylvania, he happens to serve with donald trump's sister, marianne trump barry which may increase or decrease his potential depending how you make that argument and william pryor from the 11th circuit court of appeals in the state of georgia. other news breaking this morning about an hour a little bit from now. president trump will sign another executive order. this one dealing with regulatory reform. basically it's being dubbed the one in two out executive order. he talked about this in the campaign trail saying he wants
6:03 am
to trim back regulations that i believes are stifling economic growth. for every new regulation that's written this executive order demand two regulations are rescinded. that's breaking news this morning. now to the news breaking all weekend from an executive order signed on friday. the extreme vetting order. president trump taking to twitter himself to defend the actions he took saying only 109 people out of 325 were detained and held for questioning over the weekend. big problems at airports were caused by delta computer outraj, protestors and tears of senator schumer. secretary kelly said all is going well with very few problems. make america safe again tweeting out there is nothing nice about searching for terrorists before they can enter our country. this was a big part of my campaign, study the world. the president is making the case that the nations targeted by the ban were the same ones identified by the obama administration of being hot
6:04 am
beds of terrorism and suspendsing refugees from the region is nothing different than president obama himself order. here is stephen miller from this morning. >> president obama suspended the iraqi program for six months after two were implicated in a plot in bowling green, kentucky. this is a matter of national security. a matter of keeping the public safe and the reality is in a world with 7 billion people, united states has an absolute sovereign right to determine who can and cannot enter into the united states. >> the executive order stipulates the lits is fluid. ones can be added and come off the list if they start getting their process in order in terms of fighting terrorism within those borders, shannon. so taking a cue from the obama administration and making it their own as the months progress. >> shannon: what is the white house saying about the problems and confusion and why they
6:05 am
acted to roll this out so quickly being criticized by the gop as well as democrats. >> there were some complaints they didn't fully inform the department of homeland security. confusion who should be detained. whether or not people from green cards should. they wanted to get it out as quickly and broadly as possible to keep out any potential terrorists trying to get into the united states before that window closed. again, stephen miller from this morning. >> our task in this new administration is to prevent what happened in parts of france and belgium and germany from happening in the united states where you have large pockets of radicalization that extend through generations and become a serious long-term security problem. we have to act now to prevent that from happening tomorrow. >> bill: so we've got the fallout from the extreme vetting executive order. the new executive order on regulation coming today and the supreme court -- just another
6:06 am
routine day at the white house, shannon. >> shannon: they're off to a roaring start. john roberts, thank you. >> bill: white house chief of staff reince priebus suggesting the order may not go far enough from sunday. >> those were the seven countries congress and obama administration identified as the seven countries most identifiable with dangerous terrorism taking place if their country. you can point to other countries that have similar problems like pakistan and others. perhaps we need to take it further. >> bill: chief political correspondent here for analysis, what a weekend. good morning to you. you observed the white house is on offense this morning. how so? >> they're not giving an inch on the necessity of this order. at the same time that they're tweaking it and fixing things that were wrong with it to begin with. the biggest one, john roberts
6:07 am
mentioned was those green card holders. people have given the right to stay in the united states permanently. originally some of them were held up. there was a lot of controversy about it that was at the heart of some of these court challenges to the rule. and now the administration says basically green card holders aren't affected. they're fixing some of the things that were wrong with it. at the same time aggressively defending p need to do it and the need to do it now. >> bill: here is a tweet now. only 109 people out of 325,000 were designed and held for questioning. he goes on to talk about more fromth there from the president earlier today. 109 people doesn't sound like a lot. many more protestors than 109 people, many. what would you expect today, then, from the white house as it continues to evolve? >> basically there were two
6:08 am
things that fix in this. the green card thing and they needed to fix the question of some people especially from iraq who had helped american forces during the war in iraq. and some of them have been given special visas and one of them got hung up at jfk in new york. so they need to fix that. but i believe the belief is if you tweak a couple of things, the basic fundamental principle behind this, the president has the right to decide who comes and who does not come into this country and who constituents a threat and does not constituents a threat to this country. they'll defend that very, very strongly. >> 325,000 in one day is a lot. a lot of people find that number would be large and huge. you write about the supreme court. the pick is approaching and lead to total war, you ask with a question mark. what is your sense about america and what it gets tomorrow night prime time, 8:00 from the white house.
6:09 am
kind of like an apprentice. >> during the campaign, donald trump released a list of 21 names of potential supreme court nominees and said very clearly my choice will come from this list. it was very well received by conservatives and republicans. so trump could basically close his eyes and put his finger on a name and nominate that person and it would be well-received by republicans and conservatives. at the same time, no matter who he picks, i think democrats are going to come out and say this choice is an out of the mainstream extremist who will set the country back on civil rights, women's rights, gay rights, etc. so the sides are pretty much well-defined right now. we should point out that some possible nominees have already been confirmed by the senate before. they are on the circuit courts of appeals. >> bill: does it matter? >> it could. gorsuch and hardiman mentioned earlier were confirmed by a
6:10 am
voice vote 95-0. bill pryor on the other hand came after an ugly fight in the senate, was confirmed by 53, 45. he lost a couple of republicans in that vote. so the trump administration might think that might end up being a real fight in the senate. >> bill: good piece. well written. byron, thank you so much. trying to wrap it up. shannon and i started quizzing each other between the four potential. >> shannon: i think we're at two my sources say. i'll try to pump them as much as i can. >> bill: how old is neil gorsuch, hardiman? >> shannon: 49 and 51. we like playing this game. when the big announcement comes we'll have every detail you need. >> bill: 10 minutes past the hour right nou. >> shannon: a deadly shooting spree being declared an act of terrorism. six people killed after gunmen targeted a mosque in canada.
6:11 am
>> bill: u.s. navy seal killed in a raid against al qaeda overseas. what the military is telling us about that this morning. >> shannon: president trump facing criticism from some within his own party amid the uproar over his refugee policy. why john mccain calls his order a self-inflicted wound. former governor mike huckabee is here to weigh in live next. >> it is a confused process. the bad news is obviously this process in these conclusions were not vetted. is there an elk in your bed? with sleep number, there's an adjustment for that. tilt your tormentor and put those snores to sleep. does your bed do that? come into a sleep number store where the queen c4 mattress is now $1199. it's a no brainer. i mwell, what are youe to take care odoing tomorrow -10am? staff meeting. noon? eating. 3:45?
6:12 am
uh, compliance training. 6:30? sam's baseball practice. 8:30? tai chi. yeah, so sounds relaxing. alright, 9:53? i usually make their lunches then, and i have a little vegan so wow, you are busy. wouldn't it be great if you had investments that worked as hard as you do? yeah. introducing essential portfolios. the automated investing solution that lets you focus on your life.
6:13 am
6:14 am
6:15 am
>> shannon: the nation mourning the loss of an american hero. military officials say a u.s. navy seal was killed, three others wounded in a raid on a group of senior al qaeda leaders in central yemen. the elite group responsible for killing bin laden. the white house releasing a statement saying americans are saddened this morning with news that a life of an heroic service member has been taken. 14 al qaeda fighters were reportedly killed in that raid. >> the good news is it's only got to do with a pause. bad news is obviously this process and these conclusions were not vetted.
6:16 am
we have several thousand americans who are fighting in iraq against isis, alongside iraqi military men and women. the battle of mosul has taken an enormous toll on the iraqi military. is iraq the same as iran is? of course not. >> bill: there is endless reaction for the news from the weekend. senator mccain one of the critics of the travel ban. president trump firing back on twitter saying this. the joint statement of former presidential candidates john mccain and lindsey graham is wrong. they are sadly weak on immigration. the two senators should focus their energies on isis, illegal immigration and border security instead of always looking to start world war iii, end quote. mike huckabee, governor, welcome back to you and good morning. i know you've watched everything from over the weekend. what was your view of it? did the white house -- did the president do the right thing or not? >> absolutely did. he did exactly what he said he was going to do throughout the
6:17 am
campaign. more importantly, it's what he didn't do. he didn't ban people from seven countries. i don't know if john mccain read the executive order. he might want to do that. those countries are not mentioned in the executive order. the only country mentioned is syria. where did the list of seven come from? it came from the obama administration dating back to 2011 signed into law and i assume senator mccain probably voted for this order that did name seven countries in 2015 and reiterated in 2016. bill, this whole thing is a speed bump not a stop sign. but it is based on something the previous administration did. it is just that president trump is getting a lot more attention for it particularly from all the folks who are shedding big crocodile tears on the award shows out of hollywood. >> bill: that was something else to watch last night. the implementation has taken heat from both sides. reince priebus is saying what
6:18 am
will we do, give them a three-day heads-up warning and a activity would change his mode and exercise whatever they wanted to do within that 72 hour window. i don't know if that would happen or not. it was the defense from reince priebus on sunday. should the implementation have been better communicated between government agencies and perhaps governments overseas? >> i think that is something everybody can figure out. what i do think is reince priebus is right. if you said in another seven days we'll implement a pollz. for seven days you'll have people flooding the borders and doing everything they can to get in saying the window is closing. so the only way to implement something like this and be serious about it is to do it quickly and abruptly. that's what the president did. i think that again the people who are screaming the loudest, they are lying about it saying there is a muslim ban. no, there isn't. there isn't a muslim ban.
6:19 am
or that trump named seven countries. they need to read the executive order. they obviously did not. so once again it is -- i think it's almost like a collaboration between a very ignorant or deliberately lazy media that doesn't look into the facts before they report them and people on the left who if donald trump walked across water, they would say donald trump can't swim. they will never find anything good about what he does. >> bill: another tweet this morning. there is nothing nice about searching for terrorists before they can enter our country. this was a big part of my campaign, study the world. exclamation point. it was a big part of his campaign. and you could argue for his supporters he is doing what he said for a year and a half. so far that seems to be the case. we will get another executive order we're told in about an hour and 10 minutes from now that goes to regulations, perhaps. we await to see what that order says. then tomorrow night we're going
6:20 am
to get a supreme court justice. how big of a fight is america in for when we see the name announced in prime time tuesday night, governor? >> i think he could name jesus christ and he would still have a fight. this is not about who he appoints or what he does. this is about what the democrats have decided to dig in their heels and to engage in what they are calling total resistance. resist everything. i think it will backfire on them. people elected donald trump to be president and as far as things like this immigration order, look, i think people would rather see a few folks -- you mentioned 109 inconvenienced for a few hours than they had to see a big long line of body bags and toe tags from people killed by terrorism. we don't want to become like the rest of the world, specifically europe. we don't want to become like america has been where we've vulnerable to these attacks. i think a lot of americans are
6:21 am
saying thank god donald trump is doing what he said he was going to do and it's why we elected him. >> bill: mike huckabee from florida. the former governor of arkansas. thank you, sir. 21 past the hour now on a monday. >> shannon: we now know president trump is set to make his supreme court pick official. a big announcement set for tomorrow. "prime time live" from the white house. we'll have more on that and the rumored finalists. >> bill: six dead after gunmen storm a months -- a mosque in canada. charmin ultra strong. it's 4 times stronger, and you can use less enjoy the go with charmin.
6:22 am
6:23 am
and i finally found our big idaho potato truck. it's been touring the country telling folks about our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man. hey, wait up. where you goin'? here we go again.

6:25 am
now being declared a terrorist attack. at least six people killed after gunmen stormed a mosque in quebec city. officials calling for unity in the wake of this attack. >> i want to say a few words to our quebecers. we are with you. this is your home, you are welcome here. we are all quebecers. >> shannon: we have more. rick, what do we know so far about the attack? >> it happened at the islamic cultural center in quebec with 40 worshippers in side. two gunmen wearing ski masks watched in and started shooting yelling god is great according to witnesses. we're told one of the men was armed with an ak-47 and the shooters reloaded during the attack leaving six dead and eight wounded. the victims ranging in age from 39 to 60. and in a statement canadian prime minister justin trudeau
6:26 am
said. there have been anti-muslim acts at this mosque in the past. reporting someone left a pig's head during the holy month of ramadan. police holding a news conference now and not giving us a lot of information. there is a lot of chatter on twitter about the shooter's identity. ka*ntdian offices say they're in their late 20s, early 30s. not releasing the ethnicity of the men involved. some witnesses said one of them spoke with a heavy french dialect suggesting he was local. canada's globe and mail newspaper is saying one of the men was caught after he called police and turned himself in a few miles from the scene. that's unconfirmed. it has prompted increased security outside mosques in the
6:27 am
u.s. including in new york city where the nypd has employed critical response command teams for extended tour coverage. canadian authorities said this weekend they would welcome refugees from muslim countries after president trump suspended the u.s. refugee program because of security concerns. no word if the shooting might be connected to that. >> shannon: rick levanthal. thank you. >> bill: 27 past the hour now. president trump is active this morning. in a moment he is meeting with small business leaders. there will be a tape play-out in a moment. addresses the fallout we watched over the weekend and we'll bring the latest to you on that. also in a moment we're watching the travel ban, the latest in a moment on that and critics slamming the executive order as nothing more than a muslim ban. president trump and his team say keeping the nation safe takes tough action. this is reince priebus from sunday. >> this was a promise that
6:28 am
president trump had made. and it is a promise he is going to keep. he is not willing to be wrong on this subject. we need to do our best to be vigilant and protect americans. . healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
6:29 am
6:30 am
6:31 am
>> bill: headline of the morning if you're joining us on monday. president trump set to announce his supreme court pick tomorrow night prime time from the white house. 8:00 eastern time. the president said naming a replacement to fill the seat vacated by the late justice scalia is a top priority. his top finalists are said to be including the following. judge william pryor out of alabama. judge neil gorsuch of colorado. judge thomas hardiman of pennsylvania. confirmation won't be a gimme. republicans will need eight democratic votes. democrats changed the rule for everything but the supreme court nominees and during sean
6:32 am
hannity's meeting with president trump last week he said he would favor the nuclear option if that is what it comes to. which would mean you don't need the 60 but 51. watch that story. we'll sort through it as we get it. one at a time. >> shannon: judges hardiman and gorsuch got through unanimous voice votes. pryor was a much tougher fight and that might factor into the consideration that president trump is making. >> bill: we're looking at three. it could be one of these three? >> shannon: i think it could be two. we'll know before 8:00 but we'll see. there is a list of 21. >> bill: now you know and here we go. >> shannon: president trump's controversial travel and refugee ban, critics say the muslim ban is -- where was all the outrage from democrats and the opposition party, the media, when our jobs were fleeing our country? the former senior advisor to john carey and a former deputy
6:33 am
assistant to george w. bush. i find there has been a ton of misinformation about what this executive order does and doesn't do. where the seven countries came from. these seven countries were decided during the obama administration. it is not like president trump picked out these seven countries and wrote an order. marianne, you know the left has done a lot of reporting this weekend and there have been many members of congress, republicans and democrats, talking about this could have been a better roll-out. the fact is this is not a muslim travel ban. there are seven countries chosen by the obama administration. were they acting in a discriminatory manner? >> it is a muslim ban, listen to what rudy giuliani say. he put together a muslim ban. that's the problem. donald trump and the trump administration is playing politics with our national security combined with bad policy. it's one thing to make a list.
6:34 am
ut bad policy together. now we have both. it makes us less safe, it makes our allies doubt us and puts our troops in harm's way and makes it easier for isis to recruit terrorists against us. that's bad. it makes us unamerican because we can certainly protect ourselves and do it in an american way. this is a national emergency, donald trump should declare one. if there is an imminent threat he should tell us. none of those things have happened. >> shannon: essentially in the executive order he laid out the reasons why he thinks it is necessary to do that. it is temporary or indefinite in all these cases. the list came from two years ago under the obama administration, just to be clear. >> that's right. the president takes an oath to preserve and protect and defend you the nighted states. that's what he is doing. we have a new incoming administration who has intelligence from the prior administration. these seven countries were on their list. so what did the president do? he has a moratorium. 120 day look back to make sure
6:35 am
america is doing everything in its interest to protect us from those who seek to do us harm. by the way, our enemy has told their sympathizers to pose as refugees to infiltrate our country. they told us what they want to do. this is not a muslim ban, it is a ban based on geography and failed nation states we can't properly vet because they can't give us the information necessary to insure our safety. we have nothing to apologize for. we need to keep america safe, we need to keep america first. that's exactly what he is doing. if legislation is need it may come after the moratorium. >> shannon: there is a split on capitol hill among those who think it was done well or wasn't done well. i want to read what tom cotton had to say. it is simply wrong the call the executive order a religious test of any kind. i doubt many americans more broadly object to taking a harder look at foreigners coming into our country with
6:36 am
torn nations. why don't we do that already? >> there is no question we can always do better. but there has been more vetting of most of these people trying to get into this country than most of the cabinet secretaries and donald trump himself. if this isn't politics, then why is it that general kelly and others were overruled? the head of the department of homeland security was overruled on his recommendations and donald trump signed this as he was on a plane on his way back to washington he never saw the final version. so if you aren't going to listen to your military advisor. >> that is not true. that is not a fact. >> it is true. >> shannon: we've told there have been weeks of consultation between state department and -- >> you and i both know you can talk to anyone all you want but if you don't see the final version and you don't weigh in on that, you don't have any say in it. >> shannon: brad, -- >> this president takes advice
6:37 am
and council from those who have information to give him. the ultimate decision is on the president. he is the one where the buck stops. by the way, again, this is a moratorium, a lookback. why wouldn't the president want to do that to make sure he is doing everything within his power to keep us safe? by the way, americans are protesting the wrong country. they should be protesting the saudis, oman and -- i'm talking about taking in surrogates and being humanitarian. they have a vested interest as neighbors to keep their region safe and to protect the people and they have done nothing. so america should not be the one with the burden. it should be on those who have the most interest in kekeeping these people safe because the ultimate game that should be played is having it safe for them to return. shouldn't they return to their homeland? >> if kelly wasn't overruled he put out a statement that folks with permanent legal status and green cards are allowed back into the country. how did that happen?
6:38 am
>> shannon: let's talk about some numbers, 325,000 foreigners traveled into the u.s. during this time period. 109 were stopped for additional questions. we're told that every single one of them has been released. they have been processed and handled. so marianne, where do you balance the need for safety with the president says in his executive order this is about protecting this country while also trying to balance with compassion, if everyone is cleared and this is over and we're talking about less than 1% of all travelers impacted, where do you go? >> shannon, not all the travelers have been cleared. in fact, you can ask a number of members of congress that they're still holding travelers in airports and elsewhere. >> shannon: last we heard dhs said everyone has been cleared. that's the last word we were given. we'll double-check that. >> we've sacrificed what makes this country great. refugees fleeing religious persecution. our law and the constitution at
6:39 am
the altar of politics for a one week old presidency. that is shameful. >> shannon: i want to bring in a statement from mccain and graham. they said this executive order sends a signal intended or not that america doesn't want muslims coming into our country and we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than help our security. >> i disagree. i happen to agree this moratorium is important to understand where we go forward. we know the seven nation states are unstable. they don't have the infrastructure to give us the information upon which we can corroborate who these people are and their intent. there are good people who may have disagreements but this is important and the president's job is to keep us safe. >> shannon: we have to leave it there. brad and marianne, great to see you. >> bill: president trump is meeting with small business leaders at the white house. there was what we call a pool spray about to play out in a
6:40 am
moment now. he talks about everything. he talks about the contentious debate at airports over the weekend saying homeland security had a good day on sunday. with regard to supreme court pick that he has made and announced tuesday night at 8:00. he said the person is highly respected. he says we cut 600 million dollars off the cost of the f-35 joint strike fighter. he talked about that a couple of weeks ago. and appreciate lockheed martin for the response on his request and he said we'll be saving billions of contracts going forward. there is a lot in this right now and also he will take action on regulations in about 50 minutes or so that john roberts talked about at the top of the show here. at that point he will sign an executive order. in the other monitor i can see president trump so you guys give me the go and we'll roll this tape from the white house
6:41 am
a moment ago. and we will pick up his comments today. he has been tweeting, shannon, already today about the controversy from over the weekend and that has been met with a lot of headlines already. >> shannon: it has. giving us the other headline tomorrow night we get the supreme court pick at 8:00 p.m. a snowy day in d.c. it's beautiful. and it is now time for business. >> waiting approval for the senate. the democrats are acting deliberately slow. they aren't behaving well at all. that's why over the last many years nothing got done in this country. but we're moving things along and we're moving them along fast. we actually had a very good day yesterday in terms of homeland security. someday we had to make the move and we decided to make the move. it would be nice again if we could have our cabinet. our cabinet, which is outstanding, ising -- is going
6:42 am
through a lot in terms of what they're being in the senate. they did it only for political reasons. they just made him wait. why did they do that? just politics. i noticed that chuck schumer yesterday with fake tears, i'll ask him who was his acting coach. because i know him very well. i don't see him as a crier. if he is, he is a different man. there is a 5% chance it was real. i think they were fake tears. we have a big decision and that i have made, a very big decision on the united states supreme court that is going to be announced tomorrow night from the white house at 8:00. a person who is unbelievably highly respected and i think you will be very impressed with this person so it will be 8:00
6:43 am
tomorrow night at the white house, from the white house. and today we have with us people who are very successful in the world of small business. and i love small businesses. i started with a small business. it got big. i have dealt with small businesses and big businesses and i love you all the same. the big business folks have been fantastic. they are bringing jobs back. i say where was the outrage of the democrats when all of our companies were fleeing to mexico and to other places far away and leaving jobs behind? now they are all coming back. they are coming back by big numbers, bigger numbers than people have seen. you saw ford has announced big plans coming back into michigan and ohio and different places. general motors has made big announcements. fiat chrysler, the head flew
6:44 am
from italy to make our meeting last week. you look at what is happening with lockheed. we're cutting the price of their planes by a lot and they're expanding. ultimately they'll be better off. boeing also is very much involved in new hiring and also coming in with pricing. we're cutting prices, we all know about that. the people at this table know about that. you could have done that but we cut approximately 600 million off the f-35 fighter. and that only amounts to 90 planes out of 3,000 planes. and when you think about $600 million that was announced by maryland, the head of lockheed martin, i got involved in that about a month ago. a lot was put out and when they say a lot, a lot meant about 90 planes. so having a lot of difficulty. there was no movement. and i was able to get $600
6:45 am
million approximately off those planes. so i think that was a great achievement. but that really means much more than that if you think about the fact that that's 90 planes out of close to 3,000 planes that are being made. i appreciate lockheed martin for being so responsive. and that will be appreciated very much. i appreciate boeing for coming in and competing and now they'll be competing during the process for the rest of the planes. there are thousands more planes coming. we have a lot of planes coming. these are contracts that everybody knows about. the f-35 fighter jet. a great plane, by the way. i have to tell you. lockheed is doing a very good job as of now. there were great delays about seven years of delays, tremendous cost overruns. we've ended that and we have that program in good shape.
6:46 am
i started working on that when i was president-elect. the reason i was working on it and you folks would understand it, we love doing that stuff, right? somebody said why don't you take a vacation before you become president? i said because i like doing this. we're saving -- we will be saving billions and billions and billions of dollars on contracts. as you know, we approved the pipelines but as i'm sitting there and looking at the approval i said where is this pipe made? these are massive pipes bigger than this room. and a lot of it is made in other countries, including china. i said you mean you can make pipe in china and other places far away, ship it to the united states on massive boats, put it on trucks and deliver it to the middle of the country, and we can't make it cheaper, right? what are we talking about here?
6:47 am
and these are big pipes. now the only way i can imagine they do that is they must have to cut them because they're so big i can't imagine they take up so much room, i can't imagine you could put that much pipe on ships. it is not enough. not long enough. so i assume they have to fabricate and cut, which hurts the pipe, by the way. i said to myself, if they are going to do the pipe in the united states using the powers of the united states, including eminent domain. you criticized by eminent demain. if you remember especially during the primaries i was criticized about that. if we will use our powers of eminent domain and all the other powers, then i want the pipe to be manufactured with united states steel. that doesn't mean the company united states steel, that means
6:48 am
steel from the united states. it will be a bidder. i want it to be fabricated in the united states. if we're these massive pipelines i want workers in the united states to fabricate the pipe. and that sort of makes sense, don't you think as small business owners? and so we're doing a lot of things. a lot of really great things and we're very proud of it. the small business is a big part of american economic success, although lately there hasn't been too much success because we're having our products made everywhere in the world so much but we're bringing that all back. it is coming back, it is coming back fast. you see the difference already, right? more than 28 million small businesses in the country, 28 million small business equals fewer than 500 employees, that's what is considered a small business. anybody have over 500 employees here? if you do we'll get you the hell out of here. [laughter] 56 million small business employees, think of it.
6:49 am
56 million. small business is really our biggest business. we employ 48% of private workforce, the private workforce, big percentage is employed by small business. we hear about general motors, ford, boeing and lockheed and all these great companies but a big percentage of them are small business. we want to make life easier for these small business owners and that's what we're here for today. last week we had the big businesses and this week coming we have the really, really big businesses set up by steve schwartzman, great wall street person. matt has done a great job. we have the greatest businesses that are set up and that's happening very soon. but these small business we're going to simplify. reduce, eliminate regulations. we're doing it for big business, too, by the way. can't be any discrimination, right? but big businesses are thrilled with what's happening.
6:50 am
the stock market has gone up massively since the election. everybody saying the market will go down. the smart people know me. the business people know me and know what i'm about so the market went massively up. in fact, when i was elected a lot of the really smart people went out and bought a lot of stock and they've been rewarded. we want to simplify and lower taxes, unless you would rather have high taxes, right? so small business owners can spend more time and money finding and responding to customers and expanding markets. they have more money and more opportunities to hire more employees. so essentially we're getting rid of regulations to a massive extent. could be as much as 75% or slightly more. great protection for the consumer, we have to. but we don't need 97 different rules to take care of one
6:51 am
element their individual economic success will support american success. we want to end the unfairness between small and big business caused by regulation. regulation has actually been horrible for big business, but it has been worse for small business. plus small business can't hire the kind of talent that the big businesses can hire, so it's really very unfair. big business so often can afford compliance with the cost of regulations but i don't want them to. i want them to build new plants and sell more cars. we'll be doing tremendous favors. if you saw the head of ford and the head of general motors leaving here last week they couldn't believe -- one of them said, one of the greatest meetings we've ever attended. the unions were here last week, the workers, representing workers, union or not. they said it was the single greatest meeting they've ever had. that was a nice statement. i didn't tell them to say it but it was a nice statement but i understand what they mean. it's unfair to small business.
6:52 am
small business has been treated very, very badly. as you people know better than anybody, it is almost impossible now to start a small business and it is virtually impossible to expand your existing business because of regulations. and because of the banks don't loan you money. that is a disaster. we'll be doing a great number on dodd frank. it's why i'm taking this action and taking an action later this morning and if you like you can join me at the signing to begin our effort to reduce federal regulations and we'll be reducing them bigly and their damaging effects on our small businesses and our economy. our entrepreneurial spirit. and it has been very badly damaged. the american dream is back. we're going to create an environment for small business like we haven't had in many, many decades. this isn't a knock on president obama, it is a knock on many presidents proceeding me and a
6:53 am
knock on everybody. it got particularly bad in the last eight years but not a knock on anybody but a knock on many. so i just want to thank you all for being here and now let's talk. >> bill: several headlines there meeting with small business owners there. small business leaders there with the president. american dream is back is the statement from a moment ago. i picked out a few others. a very good day in homeland security referring to sunday. more in a moment on that with governor john sununu. cabinet is going through a lot. only for political reasons. he called senator chuck schumer's tears fake tears and then asked the question who is his acting coach? also with regard to the supreme court pick that will be announced tomorrow night in prime time quote, you'll be very impressed with this person, end quote. former new hampshire governor john sununu is here. first on the story getting the most headlines, that's with regard to homeland security.
6:54 am
he called it a very good day on sunday. how did you score it, governor? >> well, you know, it was interesting to watch all the hypocritical response of the liberal media that has ignored equivalent notifications over the past eight years. let me make two points on what was put out. number one, there are seven countries involved there, four of them somalia, sudan, libya and yemen, there is no question that anybody in the world would recognize that as a -- those countries as hot beds for terrorist training with governments that are not supportive of giving u.s. information. so there is no question that that kind of an order is appropriate for those four countries. the other three countries iran, iraq and syria are a little bit different. iraq, however, has the same kind of an order in 2011 by president obama and the liberal media didn't respond this way
6:55 am
to that. and there is no question that syria has no government that is going to give us good information on whether or not they are letting terrorists pass through their country. and iran still is the biggest supporter of training of terrorists in the world. every one of those countries which were put on the list by president obama are appropriate this way. secondly, there is nothing stronger in this executive order than the kind of rules and regulations and laws that the muslim and arab countries of the region already have relative to people coming from most of these countries. so we are imposing on our borders the same kind of restrictions that are accepted regionally over there. >> bill: earlier today he said that he will try and reask this question to all the nominees for the cabinet that are waiting in the wings and you heard president trump say only for political reasons. so that may suggest further
6:56 am
delay. what do you think of this as you now enter a full second week of this presidency with people like rex tillerson and jeff sessions still waiting for confirmation? >> there certainly is a serious efforts by democrats to create havoc and chaos and prevent the system that we have in this country from functioning. it will eventually, i think, be a huge political problem for chuck schumer and the rest of the democrats. >> bill: you think his tears were real or fake, sir? were they real or fake? >> they were real or fake, yes. you know, the fact is, whether they were real or fake doesn't make any difference. >> bill: i got it. >> the fact is he is ranting and raving about something he didn't rant and rave about when obama did it in 2011 and 2015. >> bill: thank you.
6:57 am
appreciate you coming by. thank you, sir. >> shannon: the countdown for a monumental decision. president trump will announce the supreme court nominee at 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night. the short list. we'll talk about it just ahead. maybe you should've done more research on them. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. and if you do have an accident, our claims centers are available to assist you 24/7. call for a free quote today. liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.
6:58 am
6:59 am
spending the day with my niece. that make me smile. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles
7:00 am
so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free. >> shannon: this is a fox news alert. president trump confirming he will announce his supreme court pick 8:00 p.m. eastern tomorrow night. that is two days earlier than originally planned. two federal appeals court judges emerging as the top contenders. welcome to a new hour of "america's newsroom." i'm shannon bream in for martha maccallum. >> bill: we begin again. i'm bill hemmer. good morning. judges neil gorsuch and thomas hardiman seen as the leading candidates. president trump speaking out about his choice about an hour ago. here is what he said on that from the white house.
7:01 am
>> we have a big decision and -- that i have made, a very big decision on the united states supreme court that is going to be announced tomorrow night from the white house at 8:00. a person who is unbelievably highly respected and i think you'll be very impressed with this person. >> bill: chief washington correspondent james rosen live. let's talk about the finalist here. what is the conventional wisdom as it stands this hour? >> you know that to to be my specialty. the president is down to two final prospects but we're also cautioned that could change given this president's executive style. judge neil gorsuch serves on the 10th circuit court of appeals in denver. confirmed by a voice vote meaning he wasn't controversial enough to provoke a recorded vote in 2006. he hasn't authored a decision
7:02 am
on the subject of abortion like the late justice scalia he likes originalism and known for a certain flair with words. now we look at judge thomas hardiman on the third circuit court of appeals in philadelphia. he had a vote of 95-0 back in 2008. he has written rulings favorable to gun ownership rights and well-known to president trump's sister, a judge on the same bench. >> these are people who even at the time of their confirmation had bipartisan support and now should have even more so because they have such long and stellar records on the bench. >> white house has been adamant whoever is nominated will come from the list of 21 jurist the president circulated when he was a candidate. >> bill: how will a nominee fare when they move up to the hill? gauge that for us? >> we know the climate we live
7:03 am
in. senate democrats outnumbered by four votes the entire approach has been a strategy of delay with the cabinet. with supreme court nominees hold tremendous sway of how americans live their lives that strategy will be injected with steroids after senate republicans last year refused to hold hearings for judge garland. president obama's pick. >> we're looking for a candidate in the mainstream. last four nominees to the supreme court. two by democratic president and two by a republican president got bipartisan support. >> mitch mcconnell reserves the nuclear option which would be to rewrite the senate rules to bar the use of filibusters by the minority for supreme court
7:04 am
nominees as harry reid did when he led senate democrats. was it a good sampling of conventional wisdom? >> bill: i don't think we could have done better at the moment. thank you, sir, back to your wisdom, james. >> shannon: for more on this let's bring in katie pavlich, a fox news contributor. katie, you know as we saw with the clip and the report by james rosen this could get ugly on the hill no matter which person gets the nod tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. >> as james noted in his important report about the facts of who these nominees are, democrats are still very bitter and upset that garland didn't get a last-minute chance to be sitting on the bench because they know what is at stake here. not just about donald trump replacing scalia but being able to shape the future of policy in the country based on supreme court decisions for the next
7:05 am
three decades. they'll put up a fight. despite things not being controversial before trump became president they then do became controversial and you can bet that chuck schumer will take a playbook page out of harry reid's old ways to cause controversy about the nominees. >> shannon: both these finalists i'm led to believe, hardiman and gorsuch. with this president i feel like he is an independent operator and we can't be too sure about they hear the name. with both of those. many democrats voted for both of these guys. that will be interesting for them now to say as the aba, the american bar association does ratings on these sells they're qualified and well qualified and got through easily last time. how much do you think that may factor into decision to narrow two these two because he can say you voted for them once.
7:06 am
>> it helps, 95 to 0 approval and voice vote being taken? it will be difficult for senate democrats to justify why they were so willing to have non-controversial stances on these two nominees should one of these men be chosen then but now that trump is president then change your opinions and somehow start attacking the details of their records. i think it's interesting to look at the kind of interest groups that line up with these two nominees as well. let's not forget the supreme court was a huge part of donald trump's platform and he used the supreme court as a way to get people to vote for him on his side when it came to election day. we have second amendment rights, these two nominees have a record of supporting second amendment rights. we have obamacare, both of them have dealt with the obamacare contraception mandate and been on the side of the little sisters of the poor and hobby lobby which were very important rulings that we've seen in the past couple of years.
7:07 am
they have good records with constituency that sent trump to the white house and have a good record when it comes to what people wanted to see moving forward for a couple of decades in terms of policy. >> shannon: as you mentioned, the exit polling showed for a lot of people it was the reason they got off their couches and voted, because of the supreme court. they're both federal appellate judges. gorsuch has a more ivy league. you've got judge hardiman who sits on the bench with president trump's sister. he went to notre dame, drove a taxi to put himself through college. he has the blue collar appeal. and any sense of which story you think a president trump may like better? >> it's hard to make predictions in the era of trump. i do think that judge hardiman's connection to trump's sister might be something that is not necessarily beneficial to him
7:08 am
because maybe trump doesn't want that to be a question of a conflict of interest when it comes to his choice. so i think that maybe that might come up as a question from democrats about why he was chosen. but based on trump's support of blue collar type guy who can relate to people across the aisle, i think the blue collar story might win out. we'll have to see. >> shannon: we'll know for sure when we hear the name from his lips tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. and we'll cover it live. katie pavlich. good to see you. >> bill: moments ago shannon, president trump saying sunday was a very good day for homeland security after protests were held at airports across the country. supporters of the new ban on visitors from seven countries say the president's executive action makes sense. temporary travel ban taking effect over the weekend restricting visitors and refugees from seven countries affected by terrorism. los angeles international
7:09 am
airport. more from what our reporter is picking up there this morning. hello, william. >> because the administration didn't release details of this policy beforehand, not travelers, not the airlines, not even those charged with executing the order knew what it said until it was signed. as a consequence you had chaos here in l.a and aports around the country and abroad. do they let people with a visa on the flight or not. some who arrived because they weren't permitted to use their phones. people didn't know if they were here, could they stay or had they left? several thousand protestors here in los angeles closed both the departure and arrival lanes. traffic at a stand still for miles. thousands of passengers missed their flights. 15 flights delayed or cancelled because the crews couldn't make it to the airport. president trump tweeted a short time ago only 109 individuals were detained. the "wall street journal" however said in the first 23
7:10 am
hours it was 375. the seven countries affected by the 90 day travel ban, a lot of people. here is a list of the number of visas issued in 2015 that includes -- total about 70,000. travelers from all of these countries require a visa to enter the united states. the source of the confusion, number one, did it apply to legal permanent residence. people who lived in the u.s. for 15, 20 years, some people did arrive were denied entry and were deported. listen to this man who was waiting for his brother. >> somebody call us and said i'm sorry i have bad news for you. your brother is here. can i talk to him? said no. he will be deported tomorrow with the first airline. i said what i can do? he said nothing. >> four federal judges issued
7:11 am
injunction against this policy. later today we'll get numbers regarding the actual number of individuals detained and affected. back to you. >> bill: thank you. lax in los angeles. so then in a moment we'll examine whether it's 90 days or 120 days, what happens when the ban is lifted? what can we learn over the next three or four months to change policy? >> shannon: a lot of misinformation this weekend. information to separate fact from fiction. everybody needs to know the truth of what we're dealing with and we'll keep working on that. president trump says this is not about religion, it is about safety and security. pete hegseth and zuhdi jasser on that. >> bill: nudge napolitano joins us on how that could play out. >> shannon: i know you were watching last night. celebrities couldn't help
7:12 am
themselves. should actors be commenting on policy? they have the first amendment, too. >> one at home and everyone in airports that belong in my america. you are a part of the fabric of who we are. and we love you and we welcome you.
7:13 am
7:14 am
7:15 am
>> had a very good day
7:16 am
yesterday in terms of homeland security. someday we had to make the move and we decided to make the move. it would be nice if we could have our cabinet. our cabinet, which is outstanding, is going through a lot. i noticed chuck schumer yesterday with fake tears. i'll ask him who was his acting coach because i know him very well. i don't see him as a crier. if he is, he is a different man. there is a 5% chance it was real. i think they were fake tears. >> bill: the white house there last hour the president meeting with members of the small business community. and defending his travel ban as protests break out in airports and cities across the country. for more on this i want to bring in pete hegseth. a veteran from iraq and afghanistan. pete, good morning to you and dr. zuhdi jasser, co-founder of the muslim reform movement and a former u.s. navy lieutenant commander.
7:17 am
thank you for coming back here to "america's newsroom." gentlemen, we may be interrupted. we expect what we call tape play-out from the white house on an executive order about to be signed on regulation. if that happens my apologies. dr. jasser, if you take this time-out, this pause for 90 days or 120 days, what is the likely policy or recommendation that comes out of this temporary ban? >> i'm glad you are asking that. really the three months or four months will run by pretty quick. what will happen afp. i tell you as a muslim nothing more american that fighting thaoe og crassy. the problem with the last eight years have been they've been vetting about terrorism. violent extremism, a tactic. it is time to shift toward conquering violent jihadism. the president talked about convening a commission against radical islamism. i hope he begins to convene that and begin to vet ideology
7:18 am
just like in the cold war against communists. i hope we begin to engage reformist muslim. there is nothing more pro-muslim. we need to stop the identity politics of the left. there is nothing more pro muslim than vetting against jihadists so those coming in truly represent muslims who believe in freedom and our way of life in the west. >> bill: do you have a way of doing that? what is your suggestion? is it a questionnaire, is it an interview, what is it? >> we have a hashtag at the muslim reform movement called we know what's going on. the president wants to figure out what's going on. we know what's going on. the two-page declaration. do they reject islamic state concept. blasphemy laws. do they get offended if there is a picture of the prophet muhammed. you can look at the interviews if they see it based in freedom and liberty or not. it can be done.
7:19 am
we've done it and founding fathers did it. >> bill: what do you think comes of the recommendation after the ban is lifted? >> there could be a recommendation for three more months or a recommendation for a long-term stay. it is a privilege to get a visa to come to the united states. do they really want to come and be part of the fabric of our country? start checking social media accounts which will reveal preferences. you can get into phone records. some of the things they talked about. if you want to come to the united states give us your phone and access to other forms of communication. these are things we can ask for if you want to come here, you have to voluntarily give them to us so we can review it to make sure you are will add to america not detract from it. there are practical steps we can take. interviews are part of it and interviews of others. we have to dig deeper and find out more. the leadership of these
7:20 am
countries don't know who their people are and they can't be vetted. we have to get our arms around the problems. >> bill: some of the heat is coming from democrats and some republicans about the process and how it was implemented. donald trump tweeted this. if we had a one week's notice a lot of bad dudes would rush into our country. >> it is common sense. what happened in the southern border if light of the stance that donald trump took what barack obama's open border approach was. people rushed to get across while they still can. if you list a time limit on this you invite the same opportunity over the course of a couple of days or weeks. yes, it happened quickly. some of the processes weren't fully in place but a prudent, common sense measure that needs to happen at a time of war when enemies are trying to infiltrate us. i applaud what the president has done and hope he sticks to his guns. conservative republicans don't pile on with the left stream media on this. >> bill: doctor, what do you
7:21 am
think we need to be considering now after watching what we did over the past three days? >> i think we need to come together as a nation and figure out the fact that we're all together in keeping our country secure. let's have a strategy. and as we develop a strategy to say that our founding fathers fought theocracy. very pro-muslim and pro-modern islam to vet against jihadist. i don't understand what saudi arabia and pakistan weren't included. on the one hand the left can't say it's a muslim ban when they included seven countries. we need to evolve into an ideological strategy on how to keep the homeland safe. that's only going to be done when we have a counter violent islam strategy than violent extremism. thanks to you as well. >> bill: out of time. more to come soon. >> shannon: the president is putting pen to paper, expected to sign more executive
7:22 am
offereders this hour. what will they be? we'll follow the very latest and we're standing by for feed-out of that and the president has been getting a lot of attention for all the executive action. how does it compare to the numbers signed by previous president and how will things change? karl rove knows. america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man. hey, wait up. where you goin'? here we go again.
7:23 am
>> bill: we should see it any moment. here is president donald trump signing a new executive order on regulatory reform. >> these folks are small business owners and they are
7:24 am
great people. they've been representative of the community of small business. if you have a regulation you want, number one, we aren't going to approve it because it probably already approved in 17 different forms. if you do we need to knock out two regulations for any new regulation. if there is a new regulation they have to knock out two but it goes far beyond that. we're cutting regulations massively for small business and for large business but they're different. but for small business and that's what this is about today. and this will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen. there will be regulations, there will be control but it will be a normalized control where you can open your business and expand your business very easily. and that's what our country has been all about. should i sign it?
7:25 am
that's great, that's a big one. do you have anything to say for the press, anybody? anybody, would you like to say something to the press? anybody? become famous back in syracuse? anybody? >> thank you for doing this because small business has just been buried in a tidal wave of red tape. to break that will really change the world for us. thank you. [applause] >> bill: it was described as a one in two out order. one regulation in, two out. karl rove from the white house, deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush. how are you doing? happy monday to you. nothing to talk about, right? let's look at president obama signed six orders, one more than mr. trump in his first week. president george w. bush is the only one in the last 20 years
7:26 am
to sign zero executive orders in his first week in office. nine presidential memoranda have also been signed by obama and trump and bush signed only two. it is a changing executive branch. what's the effect if that continues? >> first of all we need to put this in context because sometimes things get done in executive orders and other times they get done in a memorandum. for example, president trump issued an executive order reinstating the so-called mexico city policy that says no u.s. taxpayer funds shall shall used to pay for abortions abroad. that's because president obama issued an executive order tearing down the mexico city policy when he came in. president bush put the mexico city policy back in when he came in in 2001 by a memorandum because president clinton had taken the mexico city policy
7:27 am
away by a memorandum. sometimes you get the same thing by a different way. we think of executive orders here. memorandums here. directives and down here. but both president obama and president trump both like issuing executive orders even when they may not need to actually issue an executive order in order to get things done they want to get done. >> bill: many republicans argued last week president trump is undoing what president obama did or had done. do you see it that way? >> well no, i don't. i don't think president trump sees it that way, either. one example of an executive order. two points i want to make about this executive order. one, this is a border security and immigration enforcement. this is the so-called wall executive order. he is not undoing something by saying i want to build a wall on the southern border. on the other hand, i'm not certain an executive order was necessary for this.
7:28 am
he says to the secretary of homeland security go develop a plan for the wall. and if you got any spare money over there start to build the wall. i want you to develop a plan to expedite as aisle um hearings and if there is any spare money trying to hire some of 10,000 additional employees to expedite that and develop a plan to step up enforcement on the border. if there is spare money in the budget start us on the path of hiring 5,000 additional border patrol agents. all of these things could be done by picking up the phone and saying to the secretary of homeland security get me a plan to build a wall, give me to step up -- speed up asylum hearings and go to congress and ask for money to get additional agents. if you have money try to get it done. >> bill: you wouldn't get the same headlines and as the chief executive wouldn't be able to say that i campaigned on this and i'm following through on my
7:29 am
word with what i campaigned on for the past 18 months. >> i agree with you about the first. you wouldn't get the headline but you could still say look, bring that secretary of homeland security into the oval office. if you want a press event and say we've had a meeting and i've asked him to do the following things and we're moving forward on it. there is something about those magic words executive order that seems to imply boldness and decisiveness and requires the press to pay more attention to it. look, everything a president does is an executive action. an executive order may put it in writing but when the president calls up the secretary of defense and says i want a plan to defeat isis and i want it in 60 days. that has as much authority and power as the president putting that same thing in writing. the same with all of the things in the -- there is only one item in this executive order that i read that might have required an executive order to
7:30 am
be issued and that was directing the government to assess what programs, what monies could be withheld from cities and states that were sanctuary cities and states. that strikes me and i talked with one legal expert who said that might have been one element in there that actually needed the force of a presidential executive order. the rest of it could have been done by a phone call and statement. >> bill: i like to talk about the supreme court and travel ban but we're out of time. more to come soon. thank you, karl. he is in austin texas. >> shannon: lawmakers taking their opposition to the step of the supreme court. what democrats plan to do next. the executive order already seeing a legal challenge. many of them this weekend. we'll talk to judge andrew napolitano about whether the president's policy will ultimately hold up in court. taking a holiday in britain, are ya doll? well, the only place you need go...
7:31 am
london's got the best of everything. cornwall's got the best of everything. sport sport nightlife nightlife (both) fashion adventure i'm tellin' ya, britain is the only place you really need go. expedia. everything you need to travel britain better.
7:32 am
7:33 am
7:34 am
>> shannon: president trump set to announce his pick for the u.s. supreme court tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. the short list is very short. let's bring in judge andrew napolitano. all right, judge, you can't truly replace antonin scalia. this is a big pick, though, in trying to fill that empty seat for president trump. >> by this choice, president trump will show fidelity to the campaign promises he made. and he made several campaign promises about the court. one is a person very much like justice scalia. not necessarily in temperament or personality but in intellect. a fidelity to the original meaning of the constitution, it's plain meaning. a willingness to stem the tide and a person from the list of 21. that were produced during the summer. i'm confident he will do that
7:35 am
and i'm confident that he will be happy with the outcome because mitch mcconnell said whoever it is, whatever we have to do it will get confirmed. >> shannon: how much do you think that factored in for him. the three top names, i'm told it's down to two. including judge pryor, he had a difficult time getting confirmed to his current seat. the other two no problems at all. democrats there now who voted for both gorsuch and hardiman. >> the fact that democrats may have voted for an appellate court nominee uncontroversial at the time doesn't indicate how they would vote on the supreme court. with the exception of maybe senator manchin from west virginia the democrats will be lock step behind chuck schumer against this nominee. that won't be enough to block him. i think the republicans are prepared to do whatever is necessary, including get rid of the filibuster for this particular nominee. and the president for reasons we'll talk about in a few minutes wants nine people on
7:36 am
the court. >> shannon: we want to make sure we have enough time to talk about this. four different federal courts weighed in on different parts of what he did with the executive order. none really going to the merits of the whole order itself. they are on hold for now portions of how it will be handled. >> these are federal courts that met in one instance on a saturday night and in three instances on a sunday morning. so there is -- they're limited in their ability to acquire facts. they're looking at something in a preliminary way. is somebody suffering harm? yes, the person has a green card and should be admitted or yes the person has a valid visa issued by the united states state compartment and they complied with the regulations and the regulations were changed after being admitted. those categories of people that these judges prohibited the government from detaining and deporting. now, one of these preliminary injunctions, the one issued in new york city is nationwide and it pertains to every port of
7:37 am
entry, sea, land or air in the united states. the other three virginia, boston and washington only pertain to the airports in those areas. >> shannon: the judge here in new york in her ruling said there is imminent danger that absent the stay of removal there will be injury to the refugees, visa holder and other individuals. standard language. >> what she means is if you send these people back and once they are back there the government knows they tried to leave, god have mercy on them and she didn't want to be in a position to make that happen. you're right. none of these three courts have attacked the merits can the president do that under the law? yes, he can. can it be based on religion? no, this is based on geography, not religion. >> shannon: you'll watch it and so will we. good to see you. bill. >> bill: shannon, thank you. fox news alert now we're learning that democrats plan to
7:38 am
rally at the supreme court later tonight protesting president trump's temporary travel ban. several top democrats speaking out against the policy over the weekend and this morning. earlier today. tonight they'll demand the president withdraw that order. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is on the hill. just another day at the office. what is the next play for democrats, mike? >> bill, democrats are expected to offer legislation today which would have a practical effect of putting the republican colleagues on the spot. california senator dianne feinstein is expected to offer two measures, one would rescind the president's executive action. the second would amend the immigration and nationality act to add congressional oversight. this morning the senate democratic leader offered this preview. >> this evening i will ask for a vote on the floor of the senate to repeal this, senator feinstein has very carefully thought out legislation to repeal this. i hope mitch mcconnell allows
7:39 am
that vote. already 11 republicans, not just the ones you've shown have spoken out against it. >> that effort will come as senate republicans will be pushing hard to confirm more of the trump cabinet this week. >> bill: more to come. we'll watch it. >> shannon: americans love tv shows and movies but do they really want to hear what hollywood celebrities have to say about politics? a fair and balanced debate on that. >> bill: to create a more emotion -- interests mat truths that stand as a forceful reminder to folks that when they feel broken and afraid and tired, they are not alone.

7:41 am
7:42 am
what's the best way to get two servings of veggies? v8 or a fancy juice store? ready, go! hi, juice universe? one large rutabaga, with eggplant... done! that's not fair. glad i had a v8. the original way to fuel your day. >> shannon: hollywood celebrities hijacking an awards use using it as a platform to bash president trump.
7:43 am
>> good evening, fellow sag members and everyone at homes and everyone in airports that belong in my america. >> this immigrant ban is a blemish and unamerican. >> to go against the stream this evening and thank president trump for making frank gallagher seem so normal. >> we'll repel bullies. we will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home. we will get past the lie. we will hunt monsters and when we are at a loss amidst the hypocrisy and cash nall violence of certain individuals and institutions we will punch some people in the face. >> shannon: lisa boothe is a contributor to the washington -- julie roginsky is a
7:44 am
democratic strategist. my first thought is regardless of where your poll six are i don't know if it's the proper format. it's a free country and we celebrate and love that ability to speak your mind. i also thought -- i almost don't blame them because you can tell by what they are saying they've been fed so much misinformation of course people would be outraged by some of these things. they happen to not be true some of them. >> absolutely. there has been a lot of intellectual dishonesty about what the temporary ban does. i guarantee these left wing hollywood elitists weren't upset obama issued a six month ban of iraqis and syrian refugees. you are doing it on your way out. the list of seven countries came from the obama administration themselves from a 2015 law that passed under president obama that got a
7:45 am
broad swath of democratic support as well. so there has been a lot of intellectual dishonesty and hasn't been applied to what president obama did. >> shannon: with those facts in mind is this selective outrage. >> i -- the syrian ban is not 90 day or three month of six month ban it is indefinite. this was applying to green card holders as well who couldn't come back. despite the fact they had been vetted and living here and sometimes married to american citizens for generations. i can talk about the fact there was a 5-year-old boy prevented from being reunited with his mother for hours because of this ban. we can go on and talk about the facts and i love lisa but i don't agree with her facts. >> shannon: do you agree the fact that these seven countries came from a selection process that was done under the obama administration and not like the trump administration picked these seven countries. >> what is interesting about the trump administration.
7:46 am
>> shannon: on that point that's true. >> fine. what they're not telling you is for some of these countries the ban is permanent. obama never wanted to go after green card holders. he certainly did not discriminate against people from iraq who helped us and risked their lives to help american soldiers being prevented from coming here. >> shannon: hold on, julie. you said what i said was incorrect. it is not. with the exception of syria the other countries listed there is a temporary ban. those countries come from the obama administration. hold on. secondly president obama hardly admitted syrian refugees with the exception of 2016. president trump is capping refugees basically where we've been for 15 years prior to 2016. further he did, in fact, issue a six month temporary ban with the country of nothing i said is incorrect.
7:47 am
let's get back to the debate at hand. which is celebrities talking about this stuff. julie, some would say the left was so supported by celebrities for the women's march, for hillary during her campaign. all these kinds of things that they like democrats cozying up to hollywood because they think they're so out of touch, middle america and most americans don't want to hear this from them and they don't want to hear this far left stuff. is this going to backfire? is hollywood for some people going to become irrelevant when they don't want to hear this, they want to hear movie. >> most americans did not vote for -- >> shannon: most americans don't want to hear this stuff and talked about the fact it didn't resonate with them. so if it didn't work as a campaign strategy will it work now after the fact? >> i'll say this. everybody has a first amendment right to say what they want to know. despite conway saying they
7:48 am
should fire people for disagreeing. we have the right not to patronize those celebrities if you don't agree with them. if you're offended by them, cancel your hbo subscription. don't go see their movies. you have the right to do that as much as they have the right to voice their opinions and they have the forum to do it and they should be able to do it. >> shannon: it's a free country and people who are creative, expressive industry, why not? >> they have the right. i have the right to turn the channel because i find it obnoxious. who are these celebrities to have the moral authority on anything in life. they don't understand mainstream america any more than the left does now. if you look at the makeup of the new house and democratic party, one-third of those democrats come from california, new york, massachusetts. two thirds come from the east or west coast. those ideas, those statements that were on stage last night many of the statements that we've seen from the hollywood
7:49 am
elite at the women's march last week that's the problem with the left right now. they don't represent mainstream america and to julie's point. hillary clinton may have won the popular vote but the democratic party will continue to have problems winning the electoral college if they continue to alienate those americans living in the rust belt states and living in states that quite frankly the hollywoody laoets don't know what they go through. >> shannon: we would all agree it's a good thing to have a country with free speech and can speak our minds. thank you for doing that. >> i just disagree with her. >> bill: on a completely different note it is considered one of the more valuable pieces of sports memorabilia. hear from the family who inherited the original handwritten rules of basketball. a new episode of strange inheritance airs tonight and you'll see the first preview next.
7:50 am
it's not something you do now and then. or when it's convenient. it's using state-of-the-art simulators to better prepare for any situation. it's giving offshore teams onshore support. and it's empowering anyone to stop a job if something doesn't seem right. at bp, safety is never being satisfied. and always working to be better.
7:51 am
7:52 am
7:53 am
>> seven minutes away on happening now. why kellyanne conway says people should be fired for how they covered the election. a navy seal killed in a terror raid in yemen. what we're learning about the daring mission that claimed the life of an american hero. the suspect accused of gunning down five strangers at a florida airport appears in federal court today. will santiago face the death penalty? it is all ahead top of the hour. >> >> tax them to a board in the gym. if basketball is your religion, these are the tablets moses brought down from the mountain.
7:54 am
>> bill: that's from a new episode of "strange inheritance." the show will talk about a family who inherited the original manuscript for the rules of basketball. some call it the magna carta for hoops. one of the most valuable pieces you can find anywhere. the host is jamie colby and she is here. what's the story this time? good morning. >> good morning. this is a great story. i know you love sports. we have the super bowl coming up. this is where basketball truly began with one man who wanted the make young men into better men through sports. so he was in springfield, massachusetts, tacked up the 13 rules. they are so different now. we have over 300 rules in the nba game and so it was a really simple beginning that exploded and went global and to the olympics and so many people
7:55 am
benefited by this -- these two pages entrusted with a family who guarded it with their life. they have one scare you'll see in the episode tonight where they thought they lost the rules. now the rules are home, back at the university of kansas, and i and my crew got to see them up close and you will, too, all the viewers tonight get a sneak peek at what so many people have never before seen. >> bill: you have to give these guys something to do, right? they had to behave. what else can we look forward to, jamie, in this show? >> my travels have taken me far and wide to places some people had never heard of. i've met people who inherited things, some of which they expected. some were a benefit, some were a burden. the second story is a challenge for a family who inherits the roadside attraction, an amusement park of sorts for dinosaurs and dinosaur lovers. i couldn't believe how life like all of these structures
7:56 am
were built by one man who at 54 said i'm giving up my desk job. i love dinosaurs and he bought this property and built this park and families have been coming back for 50 years, generations of families have left notes in their guest book. it was incredible to see and it's in a beautiful rain forest in oregon. one of the places that you said 37 cities and across the pond we visited for season three. season four is on the horizon. we're excited to have them have their stories told. >> bill: never know what's in the garage. thank you, jamie with a preview there. two new episodes starting tonight at 9:00 and 9:30 eastern on the fox business network. get it, demand it, it's there tonight. >> shannon: they're fantastic. president trump making plans to announce his pick for the supreme court tomorrow night. candidates for a position that's been open for nearly a year.

>> bill: so, there is a such claimant a chance that you might be there. what does that like? >> shannon: it's cold, but i love being at the supreme court, it is a majestic place. >> bill: we will see you there there. >> jenna: we are learning right now from our team at the pentagon that iran has conducted another ballistic missile test. a u.n. resolution, timing on this is important. it happened over the weekend. our understanding as it happened yesterday, and this happen hapn the map. you can see it 100 miles east of iran, and it was a media range missile, about 600 miles, and it is the second time that iran has carried out such a test, but going back to the point, timing matters. it happened this weekend, and we
