3:04 am
states, the president who i really developed a very good relationship with. i think he is a terrific person. i really got to know him very well over a two-day period. we were together hours and hours and hours by ourselves. we had a 15 minute scheduled meeting and it lasted for three hours. the same thing happened the next day. we have a good chemistry together. he understands it's a big problem. working on it. am i going to start trade war with china on him working an a bigger problem with north korea. i'm dealing with china with great respect. i have great respect for him. we'll see what he can do. maybe he won't be able to help. that's possible. i think he is trying. maybe he won't be able to help. that's a whole differential story. ainsley: can't hurt? >> no. somebody said currency manipulation. what am i going to do in the middle of him talking to north korea i'm going to hit him with currency manipulation? this is a fake media that does a number. think of it. he is working so nicely that many coal ships have been sent back. fuel is being sent back.
3:05 am
they're not dealing the same way. nobody has ever seen it like that. nobody has ever seen such ativer behalf from china. the fake media goes donald trump has changed his stance on china. i haven't changed my stance. china is trying to help us. i don't know if they're going to be able to or not. why want to start heavy heavy trade or currency statements against somebody who is throughout trying to stop what could be a very bad situation. you understand that. ainsley: i understand that. >> nobody mentions it that way. that's okay. we're doing really well. china has been helping and other people have been helping. i don't know if that's going to work. it may have to be a different solution. ainsley: all right. so secretary kelly, dhs, he has a message toil legal immigrants. he says a single dui can get you kicked out of the country. do you agree with that stance? >> i am letting him run it he was a great general, successful general. i will let him run it great criminals out of this country. illegal immigrants that have

cause crime, raped people, murdered people. horrible things have happened. they are getting the hell out or they are going to prison. so many towns and cities are thanking me because we have gotten rid of a burden that you would not believe. i mean, it is a serious problem. and we never did anything about it and now we're doing something about it. brian: so he sounds pretty astounded that there is no credit given to the fact that china is showing unprecedented cooperation, at least acknowledge that before you come out and say what about currency manipulation and he said don't you use logic. if somebody is playing ball i do still come in and punch them in the face? steve: it's not the negotiation. negotiation can w. china is ongoing. why lay all the cards out on the table. ainsley: just like his book "art of the deal." you have to know how to negotiate with whether other business or other countries. in the last 30 years they have not sent their coal back to north korea as a message. china is its only ally.
3:07 am
steve: pretty much they are alone. ainsley: for china to send back their coal and say we are not taking this from you because we do not approve what you are doing that sends a strong message. brian: first step for secretary mattis go to that region. vice president is there now. the president met with the japanese lished. talked about mostly north korea. then, of course, you have the south korea stop of the vice president. now you have a situation where china could do one more thing that would really slay the dragon. that would be to stop increasing your trade with north korea. it's up 37.5%. they're the ones buying all the minerals from north korea and somewhat standing up their economy and looks like they are pouring all their money into their nuclear arsenal. steve: let's see what happens. it does sound like behind the scenes away from the camera, a lot is getting done. in front of the cameras later on today the president of the united states is going to be traveling by air force one to kenosha, wisconsin, the home of snap on tools where my mother used to work back in the olden days. ainsley: she did.
3:08 am
steve: she worked for the guy who ran snap on tools. ainsley: what did she do? i'm picturing tools that snap on to a belt. steve: the president is going there to sign his executive order regarding buy american, hire american. if that sounds familiar. there is a reason for it. he hammered that message home during the campaign. watch. >> we believe in two simple rules. buy american and hire american. let's buy american and hire american. buy american and hire american. all right? buy american and hire american. >> buy american and hire american. we believe him. steve: okay. so that sounds familiar. he is -- so he is going to kenosha in wisconsin, a state he won to hammer home the idea we've got to do something about buying from american manufacturers and hiring. and in particular what he is
3:09 am
going to target is the h 1 b visa program which allows about 85,000 foreign nationals into the country. the it community loves it because they're able to get skilled labor into their factories and their facilities every year. ainsley: the president said what's happening is those thousands of immigrants that come, in they are taking these low paying jobs but these are jobs that young american children that are graduating from college they could get but they're not available because people from other countries that are here on this program they're taking those jobs. he is tired of it. brian: push back has been and i remember readings his steve jobs book he says we cannot bring manufacturing back because we don't have enough engineers. that's why we need typically port those engineers and find these college kids that come here from other countries. we have got to induce them to stay like number one draft picks. if they're the geniuses and we are training them why send them back to their own country. he is going to wisconsin. did he forget how he converted all those red states blue,
3:10 am
going after syria and talking about north korea and going after mosul? he is saying no, i didn't. in fact, i only won by 23,000 votes in wisconsin and i'm going back there to tell you i haven't forgotten. steve: one of the reasons he won wisconsin was because his message was he would revive the manufacturing sector of the economy. snap-on 2508s not only sockets they pretty much make anything in a garage. ainsley: wow. steve: you will see that later today right here on the fox news channel as the president heads back to wisconsin. brian: i let my brother down big time this weekend because i wanted to put that ring doorbell in he said i will do it for you. where's your -- not the power tool where's your. steve: drill. ainsley: hammer. brian: no. ainsley: wrench? steve: first word, movie. ainsley: drill? what is it? brian: no, electric screwdriver. steve: okay. >> a drill.
3:11 am
brian: it's a drill. ainsley: some sort of a tool. brian: i finally found it but i can't find the charger. ainsley: good thing you have a brother. brian: i can't find the charger. he goes what good is it? steve: snap-on has got it. ainsley: if it makes you feel better i don't know what a socket kit is but you can't find it. brian: wanted something automatic. steve: now we imagine you had the ring doorbell. brian: the problem is it was going off the whole show yesterday. everyone that walked by my house either that or an angel got its wings. steve: from tools on to this and a fox news alert. a friend nationwide manhunt intensifying for the facebook killer. brian? brian: yep. authorities raising the stakes offering $50,000 reward to help catch 24 cold-blooded monster before he strikes again. ainsley: peter doocy is live in cleveland with the latest for us. good morning, peter. >> good morning. investigators say they actually spoke to the fugitive

steve stephens on his cell phone shortly after they were alerted to his facebook posted video of a murder. they tried to convince this social worker who says that he just snapped to turn himself in, but he didn't do it and they haven't heard from him since. so, now, there is a nationwide manhunt and his last known location was the murder scene here in cleveland where this 911 call was made by the people who found 74-year-old robert godwin senior who did appear to be defenseless when he was gunned down by a stranger. >> okay, ma'am, listen to me. >> he is laying there. >> ma'am, what's your address? >> oh, lord, have mercy. oh my god. >> help is already on the way. >> oh my god. >> now are you with the patient now? >> no, i'm not with the patient. i'm across the street. i heard a gunshot. >> okay. >> is he awake at all? >> no, he is unconscious. he is dead.
3:13 am
>> there is now a $50,000 reward for information that helps bring steve stephens into custody. investigators still believe is he driving a white 2016 ford fusion sedan with temporary ohio plates. because they don't know which direction he was going that's why the man hunt is now national. they only have evidence tying stephens to one murder even though he does admit to committing 13. his children now in cleveland are now trying to forgive the fugitive who allegedly killed their father. >> steve, i forgive you, man. i'm not happy what you did, but i forgive you. >> we do expect to get update from the cleveland police department this morning about fly hours now here from city hall, back to you. steve: the guy could be anywhere they say. ainsley: yeah. steve: iran says they will not seek permission to build up

strengthening of the capability of the iranian armed forces is only for defending the country. we will ask no one's permission to build up the armed forces and to build missiles and aircraft. what are we to read into this? for more turn to white house contributor gillian turner. do they feel like they are not getting enough attention? >> well, their m.o. on this issue has always been as much rhetorical bluster as possible. remember during the iranian-american jcpoa knowingations a couple years ago. president rui rouhani talking about how america was weak. they have absolutely no sense of the sort of diplomatic etiquette that comes along with most of the countries in the international community. this is more of that. but, as you know, there is an argument right now about
3:19 am
whether their latest ballistic missile test violates that nuclear deal. but, you know, i side with sean spicer on that. i think any kinds of tests are a clear violation of the jcpoa, the formal name of the iran nuclear deal. there is language in there that prohibits exactly this kind of testing. brian: julian some side deals went along this. which by the way they voted against but didn't get the 60 votes to stop this deal from going through and we know that chairman corker said you don't need the 60. don't worry about it even though some democrats were against. this so, in the big picture, you have a president who is not in favor of this deal to begin with. what would be the next diplomatic step? >> well, president trump is an unenviable position. because, as you just said, he is not a believer in this deal. he believes as most americans do that it actually undermines our national security interests. it gives iran a certain degree of not prestige but a certain
3:20 am
degree of legitimacy that they didn't enjoy prior to inking this deal. but now his hands are a bit tied. meaning there is no good options for him as a new president renegativing on the deal entirely as he talked about doing during the campaign really isn't a viable option. because, now that it's signed, we were tied into this bigger international community of our european allies. you know, be furious if we reneglected it would cause all kinds of damage. >> how he could work within the parameters set by president obama it's hard. brian: unless weekend see a blatant via a little that would rally the world against it guess what, if up against it. two democrats chuck schumer and mends voted against it so we might have allies. thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: fight against terror, is isis about to launch a campaign with al qaeda? they're meeting now to get together. speak to the authors of a

months ago before judge neil gorsuch was even on the court. then a strange thing happened. here's the history. the state of missouri offers money to repave playgrounds for every school in the state and they all apply for it and they all get it except religious schools because there is a clause in the missouri constitution which says we can't aid a religious organization. steve: in anyway. >> even the secular side. we can't get a school bus to a religious school. we can't pay for playground. religious squeal sues says that's discrimination against us. you are making it more expensive for us to run the school why by not sharing the wealth with us. they lose and they appeal to the supreme court. the supreme court back in december says we are going to hear this oral argument in april. then missouri gets new governor. new governor says i don't like this discrimination against churches and i think we should give the money to all schools in the state. ainsley: make the playgrounds safer. >> correct. the question now is there still a case before the supreme court?
3:48 am
the constitution says the supreme court can only hear real cases and controversies. and if the issue has been resolved, is there still a controversy? so, the court will decide at noon today whether or not it's going to hear the case tomorrow. a lot of people want this case heard because they believe it's going to go in favor of the church, which would allow the government to give nonsecular aid. we're north talking about communion waivers. we're talking about a playground to religious institutions which relieves burdens on parents who send their children to these schools. steve: gotcha. >> if the case has been resolved not going to be a hearing and not going to be a supreme court decision. ainsley: if there is a case that does go to the supreme court, how do you think judge gorsuch will vote on this because he said separation of church and state unless there is a compelling reason. >> i hate to predict how someone is going to go but in the last four months i have been spending a loft time reading and studying what he has said. i think he would be in favor of ordering the state of
3:49 am
missouri treat all schools equally and prohibiting the state from discriminating against small religious schools. steve: yesterday the high court heard oral arguments and extraordinarily even though they was way down at the end of the bench neil gorsuch was a talkative guy. >> very interesting to see what he would do. and i'm glad he did what he did, because he is the equal of everybody else there, even though he may be low on the totem pole and got to get their lunches in the cal cafetea and other hazing things. he has the same right as anybody else. he took that opportunity. evidence asked a lot of probing questions. what does that mean he? spent the whole weekend reading these briefs. justices had them for months he got them last week. brian: have you been off long enough. [laughter] >> i was hoping for resolution of this religious liberty case. if the new governor is going to give them this money to case. we will have to wait for
3:50 am
another one. ainsley: doesn't work in that state. three doze other states can't te money. >> the supreme court has said that the state can give money for religious schools for nonreligious purposes like government tri books and school buses. suppose there is a fire, the fire department is going to come. if there is a crowd at mass, the police are going to direct traffic. separation of church and state doesn't mean absolute total separation. it means the government can't take tax dollars to aid the religious aspect. steve: let's see what the show me state does. brian: once again, the judge was not prepared for this segment. >> is your brother now in missouri trying to sell turf to these schools? brian: if is he smart and paying attention. thanks, judge. a new attempt to erase the american flag from sporting events because it comes across as too political. did anyone bother to ask the

left. they are finally showing us who they really have been and who they are which is socialist and marxist and anti-american and everything else you can think of. they are very emboldened by. this americans stand again very strongly for what we voted for on november 8th. that is a great, free america that supports and appreciates our flag and everything it stands for. brian: i don't understand it. it says make america great again or reelect president obama, i get it that's politics. that's a problem, perhaps. but a flag is something we should unify across but, then again, if you take a knee instead of saluting that flag or standing for the national anthem maybe calcaterra is on to something. he said this about the backlash, no let us not pretend over academic indicated and a half of it many have not learned how to be effective. it is to leverage patriotism to aid their political careers, their images or their marketability and marketability of their brands. people are using the american flag to increase their marketability.
3:56 am
therefore we should stop labeling it politics. >> have you a cup 3e8 things here. -- couple things here. liberals cannot stand those ideals conservatives stand for. conservatives stand for flag and patriotism. therefore liberals stand against it conservatives believe in god and everything he stands for so, of course, liberals stand against that everything they stand against will be in their mind political. i just applaud every american that standing up this morning, going out to produce. not going out to have another demonstration and as we continue to produce and pledge and pray, we will win. and at the end of the day that's what it comes down to. brian: it does. i think after you saw kaepernick backlash he is going to stand because he doesn't see politics it or sees the downside of not respecting it thank you so much. >> you too. have a good one. brian: tucker carlson, dave bossie and ed henry at separate times will be talkingt and answering our questions.

we will see what happens. i hope things work out well. i hope there is going to be peace they have been talking to this gentleman for a long time. you read clinton's book oh we made such a great peace deal and it was a joke. you look at different things over the years with president obama. everybody has been outplayed. they have all been outplayed by this gentleman. and we will see what happens. but i just don't telegraph my moves. ainsley: did we sabotage the north korea strike? >> i don't want to when commentn it. ainsley: what happens if north korea launches another missile? >> we will find out. ainsley: okay. about china, some in the media are saying you softened your stance on china. have they helped with the relationship on north korea? >> ainsley, i didn't soften my stance. china came to the united states, the president ohio developed a great relationship with. i think is he a terrific person. i got to know him well over a two-day period. we were together hours and hours and hours by ourselves. we had a 15-minute scheduled
Check
4:03 am
meeting and it lasted for three hours. the same thing happened the next day. he understands it's a big problem. is he working on it now, what am i going to do start a trade war with china in the middle of him work obligorren a bigger problem, frankly with north korea? i'm dealing with china with great respect. i have great respect for him. we will see what he can do. maybe he won't be able to help. that's possible. i think he is trying. maybe he won't be able to help. that's a whole different story. we will see what happens. ainsley: it can't hurt. >> no. somebody said currency manipulation. what am i going to do in the middle of him talking with north korea i'm going to hit them with currency manipulation? this is the fake media that just does a number. think of it. he is working so nicely that many coal ships have been sent back. fuel is being sent back. they're not dealing the same way. nobody has ever seen it like that. nobody has ever seen such a positive response on our behalf from china. and then the fake media goes donald trump has changed his stance on china. i haven't changed my stance. china is trying to help us. i don't know if they are going to be able to or not, but
4:04 am
would i want to start heavy, heavy trade or currency manipulation statements against somebody that's out there right now trying to stop what could be a very bad situation? you understand that. ainsley: i understand that. >> nobody ever mentions it that way though. that's okay. i have think we are doing really well. china has been helping and other people have been helping. i don't know that that's going to work. it may have to be a different solution. ainsley: all right. so secretary kelly, dhs, he has a message to illegal immigrants. he says a single dui can get you kicked out of the country. do you agree with that stance? >> i'm letting him run it. he was a great general. successful general. i'm letting him run it. i will tell you we have gotten tremendous criminals out of this country. i'm talking about illegal immigrants that were here that caused tremendous crime, that have murdered people, raped people, horrible things have happened. they are getting the hell out or they are going to prison. so many towns and cities are thanking me because we have gotten rid of a burden that you would not believe. i mean, it is a serious problem and we never did anything about it and now we're doing something about
4:05 am
it. steve: they are trying to do something about it. brian: right. steve: excellent interview. ainsley: thank you. steve: thanks for going down there. ainsley: thank you so much. steve: president trump making good on key campaign promise today on a brand new executive order. >> we believe in two simple rules, buy american, and hire american. >> let's buy american and hire american. >> buy american and hire american. all right? >> buy american and hire american. >> buy american, and hire american. we believe him. brian: what effect does this have on american wages and jobs? what does it mean? ainsley: let's ask the host of fox business network stuart varney. >> good morning, everyone. i think the effect on the economy and jobs will be marginal. what the president really wants. what would really move the needle is legislation from congress to lower tax rates and get the economy going. he cannot get that support
4:06 am
from congress. implaque cable opposition from democrats and a divided republican party. he would really like legislation he has to fall back on executive orders like the one that he is going to sign today. brian: downside it will k. flip with the next person in. >> it doesn't really cover the whole gamut of the problem here. that is bringing jobs to america and changing our immigration policy. look, he is going to sign an executive order which says buy american, hire american. part 1, buy american. he is telling federal agencies, you have got a project, you use american products like, for example, steel and pipelines. item 2. hire american. he is ordering a review of the h 1 b visa program. now, this was supposed to you bring in skilled workers to america. skills to which we didn't have here in america. bring them in from overseas. the president thinks that whole system has been abused. so he wants to change it from a lottery system, essentially, to a merit-based immigration system.
4:07 am
now, that will have permanent impact. it will. but overall these are executive orders. >> sure. >> playing seconds fiddle to what he really wants and that is legislation. steve: sure. and the reason is he not getting legislation, you know, they have got a strategy they white house that is to go ahead and do healthcare and then taxes. but you were alluding to this without saying the freedom caucus. the freedom caucus has thrown a wrench into the whole works. >> that would be my opinion. the republican party is split. they cannot agree on reforming obamacare. and they cannot agree on tax reform. that's a real problem. ainsley: why? brian: which by the way the treasury secretary says don't expect it in august yesterday, too. that's terrible. >> treasury secretary mnuchin on our air on the fox business network back in march said yes, august the deadline for tax reform. now he has told somebody else the financial times not going to happen. highly unreal lisz stick. ainsley: why wouldn't they be on board with that to decrease the corporate tax rate. >> maybe they are, that very,
4:08 am
very limited aspect. steve: first have you got to do healthcare. >> not going to do that until the fall. very disappointing. all this talk about tax reform and all we end up with after the president's election tax cut in corporate tax rate that's not what we were looking for. steve: how many are in home district this week because it's recess getting their ear chewed quite a bit. >> i would like to know that i would like to hear it. brian: some are getting pats on the back stand up for trump care which we didn't like. who knows. let's talk about what happened during our show theresa may came out and said i would like another election, please. >> she has called a snap election which can you do in britain. she says there is going to be a general election all members of parliament up for election, re-election on june the 8th. six weeks away. you can do that in britain. you can't do that in america. but you can do that in britain. she wants to be the leader of the conservative party. and she wants to be the leader
4:09 am
twho takes britain out of europe. she wants to execute that exit, so to speak. she has 21 point lead over other labor party opposition. so, she seized the moment. ainsley: people don't support her views or issues, they are probably out. >> at this point. they are looking pretty grim, yes. steve: she has the wind at her back. >> she will very likely win. ainsley: that's incredible they can do that. steve: sure is. completely different. what's completely different for theresa may a year ago she was for stay. you know what in the people have spoken, let's go. >> she leads the government which charged with getting them out of europe. by the way, in britain, you don't have long drawn out election seasons like in america where it can go on for a year. have you six weeks. campaigning is restricted so to six weeks. brian: referendum on brexit. >> totally. so. steve: famously donald trump predicted that the british would say let's get out of
4:10 am
that. are there there any ramifications for eu. >> we will find out in the long term. more important is the french election coming up in a couple of weeks. steve: sure. >> if the french decide to leave the european union and leave europe. there are profound repercussions in america because our dollar goes straight up that euro goes straight down. big implications. ainsley: donald trump since president trump won people are listening to cintsz now whereas before more politicians had the power. now around the world they're starting like look at theresa may, she switched her views on brexit because she is listening to the people. the people's voices matter. >> the people spoke. maybe they will speak in france as well. ainsley: right. >> they certainly spoke in america. brian: we will see how this goes see if northern ireland and scott land leave great britain doesn't become nearly as big. >> you really do your homework, don't you? you are up on the issues. that's very good. brian: i'm very cosmo politan.
4:11 am
i have a globe. i try to memorize it it's my planet earth. >> have you got something else to say? steve: not really. how could you add to that? >> you couldn't. ainsley: you have to let brian talk because everything he says is funnier than the last comment. brian: screw gun from last hour. steve: hour and 12 minutes. stuart, thank you very much. we will be watching. in the meantime, heather joins us with the headlines. heather: i'm here. we will talk about arkansas first. that's where we are going to begin with two death row inmates were spared at the very last minute there. convicted killers bruce ward and don davis were set for execution last night. the state supreme court issued a stay and u.s. supreme court refused to lift it. arkansas is trying to execute seven inmates before their lethal injection drugs expire at the end of the month. and the polls are now open for critical special election in georgia. 18 candidates are running to fill the seat vacated by you

4:26 am
woodhouse brother former dnc communications director brad woodhouse screen left and executive director of the north carolina republican party dallas woodhouse. guys good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: dallas, now we know that the reason that donald trump is going after north korea is to bump up his approval ratings according to the democrat from rhode island. >> i'm glad that democrat from rhode island is in rhode island and not in a position to have a great deal of influence here. this is ridiculous even for ridiculous liberals. failed military operations have a lot more potential to hurt you than good ones can help you. i have full confidence that mr. trump and his team will look at these things carefully and soberly and do the right thing. ultimately, good policy makes good politics. steve: okay. >> i feel confident that if and when we have to do something, it will be for the right reasons. steve: all right, brother brad, let's talk about the bump and the bomb.
4:27 am
>> look, i have lived long enough to remember when part-time accused bill clinton of looking after his approval ratings when he dropped bombs bs in afghanistan. to go after usama bin laden. so this is this is not new at all. but my concern is not whether or not donald trump is looking at his approval ratings. it's whether he has a coherent and principled foreign policy. he said we wouldn't intervene in syria. we intervened in syria. he said he would call china a currency minuter. now he won't call china a currency minuter. he said he was going to hold nato to account. now he is supporting nato. he said mexico is going to pay for the wall. now we're paying for the wall. my certain is he does not have a principled or coherent approach to foreign policy not that he is watching his poll numbers. steve: you are not the first democrat i have heard say that let's talk about a democrat named jon ossoff, he is running for the sixth
4:28 am
congressional district down in the great state of georgia. brad, your party is saying if this guy wins, the democrat wins that's going to be really big for the democratic party. donald trump has tweeted out in the last hour democrat jon ossoff would be a disaster in congress, very weak on crime and illegal immigration, bad for jobs and wants higher taxes. say no. and then he also tweeted out republicans must get out today and vote in georgia six. force runoff, easy win. jon ossoff will raise taxes very bad on crime and second amendment. brother brad. >> i will tell you what, when you have the president of the united states tweeting desperately telling people to go out to the polls in a primary election, remember, steve, this is the primary. steve: he did it last week in kansas. >> well, the reason he is doing it. >> kind of normal primary. >> hold on, dallas. steve: the question was to me.
4:29 am
>> the reason he is putting his tweet out he knows this is a referendum on him. this is a republican seat. it was won by the previous incumbent, tom price by over 20 points. the fact that we are even victory for the democrats not whether or not ots solve gets in the house. the fact that republicans had to pour money into this and the president is so frightened he has to tweet on the day of the election? democrats have already won in georgia. steve: dallas, this guy would have to get 50% -- if he gets more than 50%, then that would be great for him. because there are 18 people running, if the democrat were to win and the republicans lost, wouldn't that really be more about the fact that the republicans had 11 candidates for this one job? >> yeah. i mean, there are a ton of candidates down there. >> there are multiple candidates on the democratic side, too. let's not forget that. >> democrats basically got one candidate. he has raised a lot of money.
4:30 am
let's not forget about that? >> 18 million bucks. >> they feel good but they do have a message that republicans need to come out, vote for the republican of their choice. they feel like they are doing a good job pushing back against the nancy pelosi millions of dollars. we have a strong regional political director down there russell peck who i know is helping get out the vote. i feel pretty good about it. but, you know, republicans need to come out today and i believe they will. steve: it's interesting because the national media has at least one publication, brad, has referred to this man as the trump layer is that he is the one that could take down the president, essentially in a spiritual way if he were to go ahead and win this special election down in georgia. >> well, look, i think that's overstating it. this is one congressional seat. i do think that it does serve as a warning shot to donald trump. if you have a seat that is 20 points plus republican and you are fighting this hard. steve: okay.
4:31 am

4:37 am
this is why he got elected on an america first platform. it wasn't for more foreign intervention and hiring guys gus from goldman sachs. it was increase wages in america and employment in america help on the margins. hsv. bring in foreign workers if they can do things america can not a crazy idea. in practice it's allow you had big companies to bring in foreign workers to work for less lower wages and undercutting american wages. tech companies against. this one of the biggest companies in the world intent at hiring workers at lower wages. what's infuriating about it rather than admitting that we want to make more money bye bye paying less. appealing to ledge just liberty and hiring foreign workers for less really kind of self-riciousz way. basically alleging bigotry if you are against their hiring practices which is really annoying.

4:39 am
and they are not learning anything other than activism which is not itself an academic discipline. it's pretty easy to stand outside with a sign. much harder, more challenging and important to learn facts. that's not happening. it's just a snapshot that you could take at almost any american college where people who have no qualifications who aren't impressive are teaching your kids to hate the country they live in. that's long-term not a good thing. ainsley: bringing politics into the classroom. i didn't think about your perspective. you are absolutely right. if you are paying for your kid to go to school you want them to take the final exam. i thought about the students in that class that don't want to speak up might have vote for donald trump and don't want to protest. could scared to put that opinion because there might be backlash. >> full frontal attack in freedom of speech in colleges across the country where the idea a person can have a legitimate conover jent viewpoint is dispis dismissed. the idea that people have a

4:41 am
they did, it's pretty hard to make wise decisions going forward. of all the problems in the american academy, the destruction of history is by far the most ominous because you have people who have no frame of reference. steve: sure. >> they don't even know how to make a wise decision. brian: and the most correctable. steve: that's why the past is prologue as they say at the national archive. in the corner we see have you a refugee crisis investigation tonight on your program, tucker. >> that's exactly right. look, people are missing and you can watch tonight and we are doing it most nights, but the continent of europe is being transformed by this my grant crisis. 7,000 people from the third world landed in italy over the weekend. got virtually no coverage in the united states. but speaking of the past is prologue this is the kind of thing that is happening here and it will be happening here. it has huge ramifications and you should at least know about it most americans don't. brian: send up a flare if you are being invaded.

5:07 am
in workers to work for less. steve: that's the key. it's not like there aren't americans who can do those jobs, it's that they're coming into this country on a temporary visa, the h1b visa that you can wind up paying them a lot less and then the company makes a lot more money. ainsley: that's exactly right. they're saying hire american first. we have all of these college kids who are graduating that need jobs, hire them before you hire somebody that's not a citizen. brian: meanwhile, the frantic nationwide manhunt intensifying for this facebook killer. steve: authorities raising the stakes. now offering a $50,000 reward, that what makes it a fox news alert to help catch that man right there before he strikes again. ainsley: peter ducey is live in cleveland with the latest. good morning, peter. >> good morning, ainsley. this social worker who used social media to upload and share video of an ambushed murder on easter sunday is not on anybody's radar right now because the police say they have not heard from steve

5:18 am
>> he paid $38 million in that illegally-obtained 2005 tax return. and it shows you just how successful the president has been in business running that incredible trump organization. but also that he paid i believe it's 24% rate, which is greater than most presidents have in the past, so i think, look, what we don't know is what he paid in the last few years in taxes. the one year in 2005 we do know, 38 million in that one year. that's a lot of money to the american people. brian: right. ainsley: david, you touched on this because the president basically tweeted after that tax day rally that basically said i won the election. it's over, and let's move on. now, he also tweeted that someone should look into who paid for the small, organized rallies. who is behind these rallies if they are getting paid. >> you know, these paid protesters, paid professional protesters, that's what they are. maybe they need to be paying taxes on the money they're getting from these left wing
5:19 am
organizations all funded by george soros and others. there's several dozen left wing organizations that are out there that are professionally organizing and paying these folks. so i would like to see their tax returns. brian: let's talk about what steve mnuchin said yesterday. he said i don't think we do get the tax reform in august. does the president also concur with that? and if so, he's got to be disappointed. >> look, this is a moving target. tax reform is a -- something that's an incredible proposal by president trump, and i think that all americans want to pay lower taxes. but -- and i'm not sure if it's august or september. the president's solely focused on trying to put together a package that's going to get through the house and the senate and that he can sign. look, he's been busy with an incredible supreme court justice pick. they're trying to get health care back together. i think they're going to have some good success here in short order. so once we get to tax reform, we haven't actually seen the proposals yet.
5:20 am
i know they're working diligently on them. it's all on the house leadership. i put this squarely on speaker ryan and his leadership team to try to get consensus on a tax package prior to them bringing it to the floor. brian: so hard with these lobbyists and special interest interest. maybe it should come from the white house. >> you know, brian, that's a great point, and i think the president does look very closely at that. maybe they should own the bill and really craft it out of there. it's a different way to go, but i could tell you to your point, it is maybe better for the american people if they do that. steve: all right. mr. bossy, thank you very much for joining us live today. ainsley: thank you. >> thanks for having me. steve: next up, they say president trump shares similarities with president ronald reagan and this morning, we have a new reason to make that historical comparison. brian: and how would you like this on your next flight? don't worry. the guys who made it. ainsley: if you say so.

ainsley: we have quick headlines for you. a southwest airlines pilot is busted with a loaded handgun in his carry on bag. stopped by the tsa in new york before he was scheduled to copilot a flight to chicago. gibson claims that he forgot the gun was in his bag. he was arrested on weapons charges and then released on bail. and what do you think about this? a clock or fake gun? u.s. customs is going with a ied. it was found in luggage on a united flight and forced passengers to evacuate.
5:25 am
the man charged with mischief sticking with the it's a clock story, though. steve. steve: of course it is. all right. thank you. president trump said to become the first sitting president since ronald reagan to address the national rifle association. >> the national rifle association who are really good people, by the way. i've gotten to know them. they are good people. they love this country. they endorse me. the earliest endorsement, i believe, they've ever given, but they endorsed me. we are going to protect and preserve our second amendment. okay? steve: so what can we expect from his speech? nra executive director chris cox joins us from our nation's capitol. chris, good morning to you. >> hey, good morning, steve. steve: well, i guess you invited him, and he's coming; right? >> he is. we're going to have a big celebration in atlanta next weekend. we're expecting over 800,000 nra members to join in celebration and there's one particular member that they're very excited to hear from and that's the president of the
quote
5:26 am
united states. steve: when he was out on the stump, there was no mistaking the fact that he was 100% behind your organization. >> well, this president ran as the most pro second amendment, pro individual freedom candidate in the history of the country. and if you look at how he has governed over the first 100 days, he's arguably the been the most effective and most successful in the first 100 days of any presidency, so we're really excited about not only him speaking but donald trump being president of the united states and having a president who supports this basic individual and fundamental freedom. steve: and as you said earlier, he will be the first president since ronald reagan to address the nra. here's a snippet of mr. reagan back in 1983. >> it does my spirit good to be with people who never lose faith in america, who never stop believing in our future, and who never back down one inch from defending the constitutional freedoms that are every american's birthright. steve: you know, historically republicans are conservative candidates are supporters of the nra.
5:27 am
but when donald trump was running for president, i mean, just the fact that he was so supportive and so verbal and vocal in the support had a lot of people go and "wow, he's all in for that." >> yeah. well, we've had presidents in the past who have been great supporters of the organization. teddy roosevelt, john f kennedy was a life member. we had president reagan speak in 1983, which was a great moment for nra members. but, steve, this is a great moment and a great time in second amendment history that we have the most pro second amendment president coming to speak to the national rifle association. it's going to be a great day for america, a great day for our members, and we're excited to have him there. steve: you know you're excited to have him there, but you know there's going to be a lot of protesters out front. that you know. >> well, that's what happens when you lose. they lost. ultimately you judge politicians on whether or not they keep their promises. this president promised to put the supreme court back on the
quote
5:28 am
side of individual freedom. back on the side of the second amendment and the american people, and he kept that promise. for the first time now, thanks to president trump, we are back to a 5-4 majority on the supreme court. we now have a justice department thanks to donald trump and jeff sessions that's not interested in political justice but interested in prosecuting criminals. we have an interior secretary that understand that hunters and sportsman should be able to enjoy our national treasure and america's lands as well. we have a lot of work to do but so far the first 100 days have been fantastic. steve: it sounds like you're 100% behind him. chris cox from the nra. thank you very much for joining us this tuesday. >> great to be back. thank you for having me. steve: all right. meanwhile remember that painting portraying police officers as pigs that was in the capitol? democrats still fighting to bring it back and this morning there's a big update. we'll share it with you coming up. plus, the democratic party newly elected chairman was handpicked by the establishment. so what do you think happens
5:29 am
when he tries to take the stage and reboot the party? >> maybe you came now because you're curious about the new dnc chairman and the future of the democratic policy. steve: that's a lot of booing. come on in, ed henry.

5:31 am
5:32 am
steve: he's always so good at matching his color. his necktie to the pocket square. brian: he also has a book. ed henry's here, gentlemen. >> that intro is great.
5:33 am
ainsley: your people do a great job. >> they do a great job. absolutely. steve: this ties in with blue and the blue states and the red states. >> okay. steve: down in georgia, all eyes are on the six districts because some in the mainstream media are suggesting maybe it's going to flip blue unlike red, which has been projected. >> and now saying the narrative is donald trump's in trouble, this is going to be a big blow out for him. you have john who's the democrat and the democrats have advantage here for two reasons. one, there are more than a dozen candidates total among democrats and republicans. you see him there in the middle. and democrats have coalesced largely behind him. so he has a better chance of reaching 50% in avoiding -- brian: he has $8 million raised; right? >> $8 million coming in because you have anger against donald trump. so you have the left saying this is our way to knock out donald trump. give him one less vote in washington. it worked, remember, for republicans and scott brown during the obama years. but what happened to scott brown two years later? he lost that seat. my point being these special elections oftentimes don't
5:34 am
mean a hill of beans. but the media in general will make it a huge deal that donald trump suffered a big defeat. it's not clear he will lose tonight. there's a chance that stays under 50% and then the republicans have their candidate second, and then there's a head-to-head match up and the republicans could win that down the road. ainsley: we just saw something similar from the great state of kansas. >> there's a defeat for donald trump and then the republicans pulled it out. there's a lot coalescing behind the democratic candidate. hillary clinton tried to do that. that didn't work out. brian: ed, the thing is where is the rnc on this? why did donald trump have to lead -- >> he had to do a roll call yesterday where they phoned him in. he has two or three tweets this morning. part of that is he wants to get in there and say, look, i'm involved. u right. but we haven't seen a whole lot of the republican political apparatus. even before these special elections, what about the health care fight? where were these political operatives getting behind this president?
5:35 am
didn't see it. steve: sure. brand-new book out today. it's called shattered. it talks about hillary clinton's doomed campaign to run for president. it's interesting. today the headline regarding this is the fact that the night she lost, barack obama called her twice. the first was to tell her to get out and the second time was to console her. they said this. >> and she picks up the phone reluctantly, and she walks away from the table where she had been talking to her aids, and she steps into a room. and as she's stepping to the room, she says mr. president, i'm sorry. she screwed up his legacy, she left the democratic party down, she let herself down, she let her campaign down. this is a real moment of recognition of failure. >> right. and i think also the context being that remember, she had not
5:36 am
conceited immediately. saying was crying and hillary clinton was nowhere to be found. not a good look for her. steve: but president obama called her and said you have to concede. >> but she didn't concede. so there was a second phone call then where the president's, like, you've really got to concede here because this is not going to be good for the party, not good for the country if it looks like we're dragging this out and then that's when she says i'm sorry, mr. president. because the way they wrote it, i saw that passage this morning because it all came crashing down for hillary clinton. she thought she had this thing won. steve: and she was apologizing because with her loss, his legacy is -- >> let down him, maybe obamacare gets repealed, not yet, but maybe down the road. and democrats all of a sudden lose the white house. ainsley: all right. so tom prez, the new dnc chair, he was in maine, and he was speaking. and when they mentioned bernie sanders, the crowd goes crazy, they're cheering. but then when the lady who was announcing tom prez, she said let's also talk about the changes for the dnc, the future of the dnc and the new
5:37 am
dnc chairman, and you heard a mixture, more boos than cheers. listen to this. [chanting] >> you guys, i still have two minutes left all right? come on. maybe you came now because you're curious about the new dnc chairman and the future of the democratic -- [booing] >> boo on the dnc chair and you heard chanting before that. bernie, we want bernie. if you think back to the primaries 2016, 2015, the energy was for bernie sanders there on the left but the party establishment has not wanted to admit a simple thing. that a socialist is the person that fires up their base. they don't want to admit that. brian: not technically in their party. senator feinstein also booed in san francisco because she hadn't left enough. >> was a hillary clinton loyalist, big advocate for her in the campaign and a barack obama cabinet member.
5:38 am
he was a labor secretary. so what's the party, the base saying? we don't want the obama clinton folks. we want the bernie people. and if they push the bernie people away again, they're going to have more big problems. steve: but it's as if barack obama is -- >> right a surrogate for obama and clinton. steve: ed, thank you very much. ainsley: let's hand it over to heather who has headlines for us. good morning, health. >> good morning to you. a controversial tanking. do you remember this one, it depicted police officers as pigs? well, it will never return to capitol hill walls. a federal judge ruling that the portraying the 2014 shooting of michael brown was government speech. legally justifying its removal by republican congressman and shutting down william lacey clay's lawsuit claiming that the painting's removal violated the artist first amendment rights. and one week after united airlines sparked worldwide outrage for dragging this passenger plane, the company
5:39 am
is looking for some new public relations people. >> no. this is wrong. oh, my god. look at what you're doing to him. oh, my god. >> yep. well, according to united's website, the company is looking to hire two managers to create and maintain a saviorable brand image and everyone is as the company's spokesperson. if you are up to the challenge, you have to have a degree in communications and at least five years of experience. tough job right now. and finally, a toddler gets a very special guest from her military dad who is deployed overseas. the heartfelt message recorded inside a teddy bear. listen. >> dad. dad. >> i love you. >> dad. dad. >> can you tell what's happening there?
5:40 am
well, the baby obviously can't control her excitement when she actually hears her dad's voice say i love you. he made the toy before leaving for the persian gulf. what a great idea, ainsley. ainsley: i mean, that is so heartwarming. i can't imagine leaving my child for a year and that's what these men and women do. steve: thank you, heather. i wonder if the baby now think so the dad is the doll. [laughter] dad is in the bear. brian: remember, mark wahlberg did a whole show about that. steve: that would be ted. brian: ted. and a lot of people think ted was real. steve: it seemed real. ainsley: how did we go from this military bear to that? >> brian kilmeade. that would be the ultimate. steve: thank you. ainsley: north korea threatening nuclear warfare against the united states, but we've heard that before. so just how real is that danger? the man who wrote the book on it. next. brian: and have you heard mexico wants their illegal immigrants back? i'll explain.

brian: president trump keeping the enemy on his toes, unwilling to reveal his strategy in north korea. ainsley: have you ruled out a military strike? >> i don't want to telegraph what i'm doing or thinking. i'm not like other administrations where they say we're going to do this in four weeks and that doesn't work that way. we'll see what happens. i hope things work out well. i hope there's going to be peace. >> what happens if north korea launches another missile? trump: we'll find out. brian: well, this is north korea's ambassador to the united nations as nuclear war could break out at any moment. so what should be done to stop
5:45 am
this rogue regime and avoid a nuclear showdown? here to answer that question is the author of nuclear showdown. gordon chang, who knows this well. gordon, how close are we to actual confrontation? >> i think that's somewhat down the road but the problem is the structure on th on the cakorean peninsula is troubled. people on the poor korea, north korea are going to want to change their government. brian: seven million in reserves and now we see rockets in that parade, they were able to display a solid fuel missile and also display targeting a warhead reentry vehicle. >> yeah. and they also showed a very large missile on a mobile truck. no one had seen before. no one even knew about it before. and it looks very much like it's chinese in origin.
5:46 am
i'm not saying the chinese gave an intercontinental ballistic missile, but we need to start asking questions because a number of the newer missiles in the north korean inventory actually come from china from all we can tell. brian: south korea's fished out one of the failed rockets and found some chinese parts in it from a chinese company. could these companies actually function on their own without the government knowing about it? >> no. because this is sensitive relations with north korea, so they go to the top of the chinese political system. this pliff reagan has occurred across decades. chinese banks have been involved in all of this. the central government knows what its entities are doing. brian: so what are our options right now? >> i think the most important thing is what u.s. officials had been saying on background that the administration will do. and that is to impose sanctions on chinese banks and enterprises that are involved in the nuclear weapons program, ballistic missiles, and other commerce. we can do that, brian, because we can, for instance, these
5:47 am
banks from the global financial system, that would rock china and push them in much better direction. brian: the president doesn't want to rock china. he feels the coal is rejecting them and helping them out, not showing up to the parade. they're indicating that was the last time helping us more than ever before. >> well, they have for the last couple weeks. but, you know, in the past, every time that we talk to china, they cooperate. but when we are distracted, we look at the middle east or something else, the chinese go back to their ordinary way of doing things, which is helping north korea to the hilt. which is a reason why these chinese missiles show up in that parade on saturday and why the north korean's are able to make fast progress, despite everything. it's because beijing's g their back. brian: we went from patience to pressure and now we're going to see how this regime responds. gordon, thank you so muchment. >> thanks, brian. brian: next in our run down, mexico dab -- mexico wants their illegal immigrants back. wait until you hear why. but first, let's check in with bill. we never want him to go anywhere. hey, bill. >> so where is the cleveland

trump: we've gotten tremendous criminals out of this country, and i'm talking illegal immigrants that are here that have murdered people, raped people, horrible things have happened. they're getting the hell out or they're going to prison. and so many towns and cities are thanking me because we
5:52 am
have gotten rid of a burden that you would not believe. i mean, it is a serious problem, and we never did anything about it. steve: that's the president with ainsley yesterday at the easter egg roll. but what if we told you mexico actually wants their immigrants back? that wasn't always the case. in the past, the deportees were actually shunned. ainsley: but now, there's an election right around the corner down in mexico and the politicians there, they're looking for every single vote that they can get. seriously. to conservative blogger george rodriguez joins us now to talk about this. is that why? these politicians are saying we want you to come back, we want you to vote, and then you can go back to the u.s.? >> i believe so. you know, we've got to understand that mexico's political history is one of political corruption. the culture of politics down there is one based. and those of us who have lived and grown up on the border, we
5:53 am
know that mexico has always had a very, very poor relationship, the government has had a very, very poor relationship with its citizens. it is not a government of the people by the people, for the people. but rather, it's a very, very self-serving government. steve: and to your point, when he announced he was running for president, donald trump said mexico not sending their best, we know how that then mainstream media lit up with that. but, george, one of the interesting things you talk about is how the mexican government is talking about how bad donald trump is, and they're using this to rally the people. and yet when barack obama did it, there was very -- a notice by people down in mexico. they didn't make much notice of the fact that he eventually wound up with that moniker, the deporter in chief. >> well, that's exactly right. they play -- we know that they play the political game to their advantage. mexico loves to play the victim to the united states. i mean, this is classical. there's an old saying that
5:54 am
says poor mexico so close to the united states and so far from god. and that reason -- that's because they -- they seem to blame everything on the united states. i guarantee that whatever goes wrong in their election, whatever goes wrong in the administration, their election, they will blame it on donald trump and the united states. ainsley: what is the profile of the immigrant crossing the border from mexico? >> the historical profile has been one of the poorest of the poor coming to the united states. mexico uses the united states as their valve to send poor people to send the uneducated, to, you know. now, that's -- that's the majority. most of us have family members that are -- that have been here for generations. have family members who are either farmers or who came fleeing the revolution. the fact of the matter is that mexico's elite,
5:55 am
mexico'salgarchy continues to dominate the institution as they call it has been in power for over 100 years, and they play the game of political advantage to their own self interests. steve: sure. and their point of view, george, is still as many people as possible could go to the united states, make money here, send is back there, and if you can, go back and vote. >> yeah. that's exactly right. they want the best of both worlds. they want the united states money, they want people to send it back and then come back only to vote. if microscope has such a great campaign, why haven't they instituted it before? ainsley: well, george, if you know here in america if you can't be there for the polls, you can do a mail in voting or ballot. are you able to do that for mexicans living here in the u.s.? are they able to that and send it back home so they don't
quote

physically have to go back across the border? >> historically many mexicans have voted in the united states and sent ballots back or have voted at the consulates, at the mexican consulates. that's where they really like many other nations, that's where they do it. but the fact of the matter is that they stay here and send the money back. or that they're here illegally. steve: right. man, or, man. he's known as the el conservative blogger. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. ainsley: more fox and friends just moments away if you've tried every pill on the shelf
