pete who is live at pete's restaurant. you have your own restaurant in ohio? >> that's right. that music was actually coming from pete's restaurant. 6:00 a.m. already. brian: starting you up. pete: we are all fired up. they don't open until 7:00 but they are opening early at 6:30. i have three joe's. help decide the fate of this election. breakfast with friends day 97 with president trump. asking them questions all morning long. the chicken scramble i hear is fantastic which is what i will be having. brian: also they is a dimmer. not make it too bright in there. that's fine. little by little open up your iris. steve: pete at pete's restaurant. ainsley: pete is like what are you talking about? brian: that's all right. steve: critical day ahead for president trump. is he set to sign two more executive orders in his 100 day mark dash. brian: that's not all.
in just hours, we're going to get our first look at the white house's plan for tax reform. ainsley: griff jenkins is live in d.c. with those details. griff, a lot of people excited about those details. >> a lot of voters want to hear about the taxes they are cranking start me up because it's going to be a very busy day for the president as he signs two more executive orders. first and foremost president trump will unveil the broad outline proposing tax cuts for individuals and businesses that could mean much needed relief, something that white house press secretary sean spicer says is exactly the goal. >> got to do everything we can to get economic growth going and job creation going. i think the more we can do to make our country, our businesses, our manufacturers in particular more competitive, that's good for american workers u. >> one thing we will hear a lot about is the corporate tax rate with the plan expected to slash the rate from 35% to 15%. but democrats, like debbie stable now is wary of it.
>> the devil is in the details. if they're only talking about the corporate rate and not helping small business, i think that would for me be a nonstarter. >> the president will also sign those two executive orders. one of which will direct the department of interior to direct national monuments predecessors one sparked controversy. what you see there is the bear's ears in utah 1.23-million-dollar. some are suggesting a more limited size and scope. this will put things to a legislative test. and finally, the president will invite all 100 senators to the white house, not being summoned. just having a meeting but all heading there in this rare meeting to be briefed on north korea by secretary of state tillerson. secretary of defense mattis, director of national intelligence dan coyotes and the joint chiefs chairman joe dunford. guys. steve: busy day. griff, thank you very much.
if you were watching yesterday you saw the that the nasdaq ended at 6,000. never been that high before. obviously wall street is excited about the president's tax plan. everybody loves the idea they would cut the corporate rate down to 15%. when it comes to individual rates according to the "wall street journal" today. they are trying to figure out how to reduce the number of brackets. they are still debating where to set the guidelines. the rates. president trump said out on the campaign he would like to see that 33%. but steve mnuchin his treasury secretary says he would like to see it at 37. currently it's almost at 40%. so whatever they wind up with is going to be lower than it is. ainsley: when means more money in your pocketbook which means you are going to spend more money and grow the economy. brian: early on i think it's significant that the border adjustment tax that speaker ryan wants is not in. this is a time unlike which healthcare the speaker of the house actually has expertise in the area is not taking the lead and maybe they feel as though last time they let him
take the lead it didn't go through so he is not taking it now. when they want to make this deficit neutral so far the only thing will be deficit neutral if it brings in that extra money back and repatriots some of the funds that will be the supply side things theory as opposed to i'm taking from this pile and putting it into this pile. steve: will it be bipartisan? they hope. so because it sounds like they are going to include two things. one, a tax break for child care, which was ivanka's idea. number two a big from a structure thing for the democrats. stay tuned. you will see it live right here towards the fox news channel as the president announces his plan a little later on today. ainsley: all right. in other news, lit's talk about the sanctuary city deal because when president trump was running for office, he said if you are a sanctuary city and not arresting people who are criminals and making excuses for them and turning a blind eye then we are not going to give your city any federal funds. the doj agreed with them. doj tried to implement this on friday.
a judge in san francisco, that same ninth circuit judge that liberal judge this one judge has said that is unconstitutional and he has he blocked the president's executive order. brian: who is that judge in by the way, here is their statement from sean spicer when this came down. obviously very disappointed. again disappointed by the courts. spicer said in this decision occurred in the sam sanctuary city released the five time deported illegal immigrant who did yogunned down innocent kate steinle in her parents arms. putting criminal aliens before the safety of ou citizens. those city officials who offered those policies have the blood of dead americans on their hands. if you look at the judge that ruled against the administration, it really should not be a surprise, even though what your political leanings are should have nothing to do with your judgment. it's hard to separate the two. steve: look, he was a bundler. he raised over $200,000 for president obama. he personally donated $30,000
to groups supporting president obama. he issued a restraining order against the group that uncovered those planned parenthood videos which were horrific. so it sounds like is he partisan? look at that right there. just the fact that the white house said the blood of dead americans is on their hands, this is a gift to the gangs. that is harsh rhetoric but at the same time, the white house feels that it is important to go ahead and withhold the money from three grants. it's not all the money that the federal government gives these sanctuary cities it's three simple grants. what's interesting is those particular grants were dolled out during the obama administration. so, i was reading some analysis today on hot air.com and it said that the order blocked that we're talking about the executive order stops things from that point of view. however, the attorney general of the united states, jeff
sessions still, by statute can withhold those three grants. he can still do it. so effectively it's a big headline where, look, donald trump loses in the ninth circuit again, but nonetheless, if it only affected those three grants to start with and jeff sessions can still stop the money for three grants what does it do? ainsley: it violates the constitution. you might wonder why he is doing this. it violates the constitution because you are trying to punish local governments by depriving them of funds without notice or opportunity to be heard. so my question is why doesn't the president give them notice and why doesn't he give them an opportunity to be heard. then if he is still not pleased with their answers after they have been heard then he can stop the funds. brian: judge napolitano is going to come on next hour and go over this in detail. essentially says this. here's the money local and state governments. these are the criteria for getting this money, then have you legal standing. but if you just got the money and then come in later and say these are some of the criteria
for keeping it, that's the legal argument against it. i'm not saying i agree with it. they also say this judge orrick congress divest spending power not in the president. give you legal argument. not the logic. if you don't adhere to the law. that's the only thing the attorney general can do. making progress even with democratic mayors about cracking down on those living illegally amongst them and contacting them. ainsley: bottom line is, just like you heard in the montage at the beginning of the show the lady was so excited and so hopeful when the president was elected and now she feels so stifled. all these executive orders are getting blocked by liberal judges. many people feel like they are not being heard. steve: the way it works it's blocked right now and goes up the court system. where's it going to land? we will keep you posted. 6:10 here in new york city. jacque ibañez joining us today with a road trip for the senate. >> good morning. jack jack good morning to everyone at home on this

in kansas since president trump was elect you the. of the president reporting a last-minute telephone pitch for him. and remember when former president obama said this about wall street? >> did i not run for office to be helping out a bunch of, you know, fat cat bankers on wall street. jackie: so we all remember that. now he is out of office. well, he is cashing in, folks. obama will get 400,000 bucks to speak to a wall street firm. he will be the keynote speaker at fitzgerald healthcare conference in september. that's a lot of cash there back to you guys. what do you think about that? steve: i bet you a dollar he does not refer to the crowd as fat cat bankers. jackie: probably a safe bet he should not do that. >> lots of controversy over that border wall. seems to resonate with a lot of people. make the cartels pay. in particular, make el chapo pay. brian: i believe that is his nickname and not his birth
name. the media has been taking shots at trump since day one. >> the victory astonishes on many levels. >> in one of the most showing u.s. elections in modern political history. >> billionaire now facing the daunting task of unite ago country that he helped to divide. brian: does he make the grade for dealing with the most dishonest media in the first 100 days? mercedes schlapp will weigh in and actually bring her red pen and offer a grade, i believe. ♪ i don't know what it is about that little gal's loving ♪ i like it ♪ i love it ♪ i wants some more of it ♪ ♪

[laughter] steve: that was funny. meanwhile as we continue our week long first 100 day series we focus on the biggest battle the president has faced including the media so how has he done? here with her grade is republican strategist and fox news contributor mercedes schlapp. good morning to you. >> it's so great to be here in person. steve: great to have you as
well. >> great to seat gang. steve: let's talk about the media, a year ago donald trump had enjoyed great media attention for decades in new york city. a lot of tabloid. once he became a politician suddenly the long knives are out. >> i don't think the media could understand the enormous impact or as donald trump would say the huge impact he would have not only on the media but to the american people itself. his rallies became the must-see television. steve: every channel. >> every channel would cover it the networks. they were fascinated by this new phenomenon in politics. of the nonpolitician. well, then you've had the issue when he actually won, the shock and awe. the fact that so many political pundits were wrong. the fact that the liberal media could not accept the results as much as the democrats couldn't accept the results. what did they do? they shifted towards let's talk about president trump's
team ties to russia. steve: the russia thing. >> let's focus on russia. what president trump has done is exposed this liberal agenda. of the bias of the media. steve: mercedes, when it comes to dealing with the media what grade do you give him? >> i gave him an a. 100 days what is he doing rally in pennsylvania. not hanging out with the elite media at washington correspondence dinner. steve: on you gave him a b, why? >> you saw speaker paul ryan take the lead on healthcare reform. bringing along donald trump. he wanted to be the team player. president trump at that time it became challenging. why? we didn't see the lerk we form bill pass the house. they met with the conservatives, with the freedom caucus members. trying to bring them along and getting these votes in order. but it didn't happen. so it was a legislative set back.i think there is still that
gridlock happening in congress where the republicans need to come together and president trump is the leader of the party. steve: real quickly, when it comes to there have been a number of white house leaks, you give him a c. why is that? >> well, i have to tell you very disappointed on the white house leaks. reason being is when the story becomes about the process. when it comes about the infighting in the white house you lose focus on the white house agenda. tax reform and healthcare reform. steve: overall grade you give president trump in first 100 days? >> a minus. very strong on foreign policy. i think he has shown very much the sense of strength of american leadership abroad that we are going to be tough and i think that really works and have you seen these presidents and foreign ministers very impressed with the meeting with the presidents and chinese president for instance. very focused on economic security. on border security on economic security creating jobs number one. tax reform. healthcare reform. i think don't look at 100
days. let's look at 1,000 days down the line and we'll see a lot more accomplishments coming from the president. steve: mercedes thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: one ceo refused to back down when obama went against his face.. hobby lobby share their story. e. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back. i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement™, we'll replace the full value of your car. liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.

david, you give it all away and you get it all back. what do you mean by that? >> wealth is more than just money. it has to do more with all of our beliefs in our faith. and so this is what we want to get across in the book is that it's about values. and so we want to hand down values to have a legacy in our family to our grandchildren and our great grandchildren. ainsley: you are a billionaire. you started out with $600 loan. >> yes. ainsley: you were building wooden picture frames in your garage. now have you more money than you know what to do with. what duo that too? is it god? >> we try to do things according to our faith and scripture as far as raising our family and our marriage and our business. we think going along with scripture is important in our life and our values. ainsley: how has it affected your life, lauren. >> it's been a great example to me to get to watch my grandfather live how the his values and faith in every
aspect of life. not just something that effects us on sunday but seeing the gospel of jesus christ lived out in every area of his life including business and how he invests in his family has been great example for me. ainsley: david, taking on the federal government, that's a challenge. >> yes. ainsley: how did you decide to do that? >> it was fairly easy because the government was basically saying you are going to provide for drugs that's going to take life or the alternative is to pay $1.3 million a day fine. because of the number of employees we h we really had no choice but to sue the government because we knew we couldn't do this. ainsley: lauren, you all got together as a family. it was a family decision, right? >> yes. yes. ainsley: i love that you say you have five five life goals. great marriage. success in business. children and great grand kids to know the lord and know about christ. did he walk the walk when you were growing up no. >> yes, he did. i think that's why that's translathed so well passing those values down to my generation and hopefully, you
know, the great grand kids eventually is because we saw the consistency of his life. he wasn't just saying one thing and doing another. he has lived consistently his faith and values throughout his entire life which is what was appealing for us to want to see that lived out in our own lives. ainsley: it's great story. raising kids, we all need to read this book. because it teaches you -- we all want to provide more for our kids than we had growing up. that's probably most of our goals. you have definitely done that it talks about balance. it talks about your faith in christ. it also talks about how every grandchild and child had to do an internship, had to -- you provided the opportunity but they had to prove to you that before they can earn any money. >> yes, yes. that's how we see hobby lobby. we see it as we are the servants and servants of what god has given us. so we want to give our children opportunities and that's what we are giving them rather than great wealth. ainsley: thank you so much. it's so refreshing to meet you and meet your book and shop in your store. i love crafts but i love that
you play christian music too while i'm shopping. thank you for all that you do for this great country. appreciate it god bless you. while congress fights about who should pay for the wall, senator ted cruz has an idea, el chapo should pay. wait until you hear how he plans on to deliver that bill. pete is live at pete's restaurant how appropriate in canton, ohio. pete: i'm just re-pete today. breakfast with friends. jeff and jacque and their son chris. we are going to be talking on the other side. jeff is a former marine. jacque works in healthcare. we will ask questions of the people how they feel president trump is doing on day 97 of his president. stick around for that but, first, we all here at pete's restaurant and on "fox & friends" want to wish the first lady of the united states melania trump a very happy birthday. she is 47 years young today. happy birthday. ♪ it's your chance to wake up

>> unfortunately i don't understand why but he will overcome it. pete: you got it jacque, you're in healthcare. you've been working healthcare. there is an effort to repeal and replace obamacare. how important do you feel that. >> i believe it's extremely important. i work in oncology and we see a lot of cancer patients coming in that can't afford their premiums. they can't afford the deductibles and the out-of-pocket. those are the people that need to help most. pete: in the plan to repeal and replace you think bringing down premiums is the most important aspect for customers. >> if you can't afford the coverage then what's the point in having it. >> being able to purchase their healthcare across state lines and have multiple providers. that is common sense stuff. pete: it is a lot of common sense stuff. unfortunately i have to move on to another table. i will take my chicken scramble with me however though, because i don't want to eat too much good morning, guys, how are you. this is mike jr. and sophia in fourth grade and has her own opinions. we will shave it for off

ag good morning to you. ainsley: good morning. >> good morning, everybody. steve: i understand you were encouraged by this meeting at the white house. you are encouraged by the fact that the president understands national security and food security go hand in hand. why? >> well, that's right. we know that any society that is moving towards scarcity it will cause a lot of problems. that's the history throughout civilization. we always say that successful agriculture sustains civilization. the president recognizes that the infrastructure that our nation needs part of that infrastructure is absolute food security as well. ainsley: you met with him days after his agriculture secretary was confirmed his name is sonny perdue. the president asked mr. purdue to come up with a list over the next six months outlining the obstacles in your industry. what would you like to see on the list? >> well, we all agreed that there is no one priority because all of them are part of, if you will, parts of that
infrastructure that we in agriculture need and depend on. immigration and skilled labor is something that we must have. and that was a key part of the discussion. we talked about trade. trade is a very important part. the burden of regulation is another challenge for many of us and, again, the alignment of government along with what we do in agriculture. these are all important components. there's a lot of things that are important to agriculture. it was exciting to heart president and secretary just on the same page together. brian: right. you don't think of washington understanding the life of the farmer. that's been your life in generations of your family. what challenges are you facing that your grandparents didn't or even your parents didn't? >> well, i believe that we can see that in dealing with the same challenge that has affected civilization forever. there are things they want to eat our food supply. dealing with diseases and pests is still a challenge.
we have a better, much more robust toolbox today we get to use. dealing with predictable water supply. even when maybe it doesn't rain. we had a tremendous drought in california but now it's over. but in that drought we saw our vulnerability and the need for, again, more infrastructure there. we see that overnight a food safety outbreak can collapse an industry when suddenly everybody says they're not going to eat one kind of fruit or vegetable or animal product. these are things that, you know, years ago i think when we lived in a country with not as many choices, we had a little bit more of support for agriculture. today it's a little bit tough ir. there is not as much support maybe because we have so much abundance. steve: let's keep it that way. ag who met with the president yesterday. former secretary of agriculture with the great state of california. a.g. thank you. >> thank you so very much. i appreciate it. brian: no more power bars, eat oranges.
eat natural. ainsley: impressive to see the president sit down with people of different industries: west virginia the overdose rate is three times the national average. now one local police chief says he has a solution and it's going to save lives. brian: still to come, i'm going to name drop. judge napolitano, you heard me, senator ted cruz also sarah huckabee sanders. one woman, three names. don't go away ♪ i'm coming out ♪ so you better get this party started ♪ i'm coming out ♪ i'm coming out ♪ so you better get this party started ♪ i'm coming out ♪ you betterer ♪ i'm so if you switch to esurance, saving is a pretty safe bet. auto and home insurance for the modern world. esurance. an allstate company. click or call.

opiate epidemic stretches across america no more affected than west virginia. three times the national average. highest overdose rate in the country. leaving many to wonder how do you solve this massive problem and should we start here. one local chief may have the answer. he says build a community bond. maurice richards. chief, i know you want to tackle this. you say there is many ways to do it. have you law enforcement. have you treatment. but you think the main thing you can do is go to the schools? >> absolutely, brian. and we realize that this is a problem that we have to attack on multiple levels, enforcement, drug dealers have to go to jail. treatment, you know, penal who are addicted and want help need those options. but also prevention is absolutely key. when you look at the long-term solution to this problem, if we don't reduce the demand for these drugs, will never affect the supply. that's why prevention is absolutely the key.
brian: look at this increase in terms of what martinsburg experienced from 2015, 270, 246 and last year 214 different drug arrests, drug deaths. so you have this challenge coming straight ahead. can i ask you something? do you think the model of the dui in school where a whole generation has grown up knowing no matter what you are and where you are located you don't drink and drive? is that an example of an effective school base program? >> well, you know, here is what we look at and what we have proposed through the martinsburg initiative which is innovative partnership between police, schools, community, and families. is that we realize that these problems of addiction start very early in life. the martinsburg initiative is a preventative program based on proven science of the ace success study adverse
childhood experiences. and what we're doing with our partnership with the schools is connecting with those kids, connecting with those families that are experiencing dysfunction and going in and starting to turn that around. brian: go ahead if they have a problematic family they are more susceptible. also deal with them first also the problem with opioids. oftentimes you try it once you are addicted. one bad decision can destroy a life. thanks a lot, chief. informatior program, where do we go? >> well, you can check out our website at martinsburg pd.org. we have pages of information strictly devoted. also more information on the ace study through the center for disease control. brian: thank you very much chief maurice richards. appreciate it. >> thank you. brian: coming up next, there is one man that could make sense of that decision out in san francisco that stops the president's initiative to make sanctuary cities pay the price by losing funds.
he's going to make sense of it from a legal angle and then we will have the practical angle.

people off the streets. sessions and kelly said we are going to hold back funds that come to you. when the congress gives money to states and cities it, doesn't come in one check. it comes monthly. general sessions and secretary kelly because you are not cooperating we will hold back funds and that will force you to cooperate. the court said that that is adding a new condition to the receipt of the funds. you must cooperate with ice if you wanted wanted the cities to cooperate with ice that had to be on when the funds started. when did the funds start? the obama administration. is that condition there no these are yearly funds. steve: applies from three different grants from the doj not all federal funds. sound sounds like san francisco wasn't going to lose any money at all. >> i don't think san francisco was going to lose any money. the court interpreted the language used by attorney general sessions as threatening san francisco. and that gave them the basis for the lawsuit. steve: standing. >> the president's defeat, if you will, and i go like this

then president blank who follows president trump could change the law retroactively. we don't have procedures in that in america. we change the law going forward. steve: look at the politics of the judge. >> no question about that. is he a an appointee as you would expect. steve: absolutely. let's not talk about his politics talk about the politics for the president. when the average person watching this morning sees this news, this revs up the president's base look why told you the court system was out to get trump. >> the president knows and you heard heard it from sean spicer how to relay this to the base. i did my thing. i did what i promised to do. it's these judges that are stopping me. i happen to think the judge did the right thing but the victory for the sanctuary cities and the set back for the trump administration is short-lived. brian: let's talk about tax reform. the president is going to be signing an executive order framing out tax reform without going to congress right now to try to immediately get a corporate tax cut. is it going to fly? >> i think the 15% corporate
tax rate is very, very popular. there will be no problem with it flying. here's where the problem will come. the president, i believe, is going to announce a goal, a goal. steve: idea. >> three tiered individual taxes. i don't know what they are. but the top ones are going down 39 to 31. it's terrific. ainsley: if you pay taxes that's going to benefit you? >> correct. the problem is there are members of congress both sides of the aisle believe when you reduce taxes you reduce revenue you have to reduce spending, otherwise you are just going to be borrowing more. president trump said i don't care about borrowing more. i think if i reduce taxes, more people will get jobs, businesses will have more money to spend. the more people will work, more people will pay taxes by reducing the rate, we'll end up collecting more in revenue. he is going to have to persuade some reluctant people that that theory makes sense. brian: including republicans. >> including republicans. i think he can do it. i have think he is very passionate about that. steve: he promised that he would do something for the economy answered just tweeted 14 minutes ago this one.

the media is already blaming the president for a government shutdown that hasn't happened. it seems like the media always blames republicans when it's the democrats who are obstructing things right now. yet, they are not getting any of the blame. the reason i think we ought to go through a government shutdown is because the last two times have been run by democrats. and they always made it as painful as possible. i think it would be great for people to see that the government can close down and the world isn't going to end. the smithsonian doesn't necessarily have to close up shop. it's just that president obama made them close up shop to make tourists mad at the republicans. steve: and you know what? that worked. because when you -- >> -- it did. steve: look at history, the republicans get the blame for it. part of it is just the way things work and part of it, as you know, erick is the mainstream media is going to portray guys like you evil conservatives as the troublemakers. >> right. that's the point of highlighting this and the absurdity of the media reporting on the government shutdown. the president is working to actually get a budget passed and the democrats want more and more and more spending.
and they're the ones holding the budget hostage. yet, if you read the "new york times," for example, you're going to see blame towards republicans and the president as opposed towards schumer and the democrats of the senate. i think if the president were to shut down the president and he wanted to targeting closings of government he could make it pay for the democrats. make it painful for them. steve: when you look at what a government shutdown actually means, as i remember, from last time, people still get their government checks. the people who work for the federal government still get paid. they might get paid a week later or something like that. but the main thing is, the national monument is closed and that's the most visible sign of it. >> right. even that's not necessarily the case. only if the president allows it look, most of the government is self-funding and many of them have reserves that they can spend even while the government is shut down. the president likes to close down monuments or at least president obama did to make it really painful on tourists to then call their representatives in congress and tell them to do something. i really think every time we
get to this point people say the sky is falling if the government closes down. i really would like a time when americans want activist government to say you know what? we are not going to die if the government closes for a few days. steve: look at where washington was a week ago it sounds like the president of the united states was willing to fight the democrats for about a billion dollars to start construction on more parts of the wall. but in the last 48 hours or so, the president has made it pretty clear, you know what? democrats aren't going to go for that i'm going to bring it back in september or october. are you okay with that? >> yeah. listen, i am. i have no doubt the president is going to build this wall. personally i think he had 60 million people vote for him. 40 million coughed up 40 for a bring. why don't you start that go start a go fund me page. build the wall. >> i think this is a good idea to build the wall. steve: .com. if erick comes up with that in the next five minutes once he

we have seen the scenes at berkeley over the last couple weeks with with milo. disgusting for taxpayers seeing them not do their jobs. brian: watch them not do anything when milo didn't show up. didn't see much as bike racks went through windows. did you get a direct quote from the police chief that they have been told to stand down or is this the rumor? >> they would never admit that. this is back channel information we have received. anybody can see with their own two eyes when you have $100,000 worth of damage. rioters wearing masks which are illegal under california law and one arrest, an order was given, no doubt in my min mind. brian: naweed, why do be a conservative at a liberal campus. why not put your head down and get your degree? why does it mean so much for you to stand up? >> well, i do believe there is a conservative movement
growing on campus after the milo incident our manipulate spiked. initially we had 20 members and now we have 60 students. not just republicans. interested in hearing a different viewpoint. they saw what happened that night and leftist agitators completely destroying the school just over the sight of a different opinion being voiced. which is completely unfortunate. i do believe it reflects poorly on the berkeley community. brian: no kidding. the whole world is watching and they are not rising to the challenge but you guys are. thank you. >> we are leading the new free speech movement. >> thank you. >> thank you. brian: thank you so much. we will see what ann coulter decides to do. 29 minutes after the hour. much more show to come. senator cruz with the plan to make el chapo pay for the wall. let's check in with pete hegseth in a diner in ohio eating for free. >> that's right. always. i think this group would like the idea of el chapo paying for the wall. this is jean, mike and scott.

thank god he is a fighter. we are 100 percent behind him in that respect. i would also like him to talk to american business people about no longer requiring a college education for jobs, which do not require, period. you are looking for people who can read and write and honest and industriesous. pete: fired up about what's happening on our college campuses? >> unfortunately it's a microcosm of the country as a whole. we are on the verge of an arcky. we have a constitution. it must be obeyed. that's all 24r is to it. in order to fight these college campuses. i think we need to stop requiring a college education for all these jobs that don't need it and that way you can cut off their life blood. that's what needs to be done with them. pete: mike, what do you do for a living? >> i'm currently retired. but i worked as interpreter. i worked at the voice of america at one time and did a lot of contract interpreting with the state department. pete: you were a russian interpreter. >> yes. pete: you met marina you were a police officer.

♪ ♪ brian: senator ted cruz had a great idea. he wants to build a wall especially in his state of texas. going to need arizona, new mexico, and san diego. but if the funds aren't going to be there, he has a plan b. ainsley: there he is right there on your screen. we are interviewing him this morning because your plan, senator, is called the el chapo act. what is this? >> well, you know, as you know. the democrats are threatening government shutdown because they are so opposed to building a wall. they are so opposed to finally securing our border. so i have been trying to think about how can we get this done? how can we build the wall even in the face of democratic obstruction. and so yesterday i filed the
el chapo act that provides that if el chapo is convicted, you know, the famed mexican drug lord, the estimates are that his criminal fortune is roughly worth about $14 billion. steve: wow. >> coincidentally the estimates for the cost to build a wall range from 14 to $20 billion. my legislation provides that if those assets are forfeited, though assets from el chapo will go directly to building a wall and to securing the border. steve: that way if you did that, then mexico would indirectly wind up building the wall. that is pure genius on your part. [laughter] >> well, true enough, and, you know, look, el chapo led et drug cartel and these drug cartels are the ones that are crossing the border. they are smuggling narcotics. they are engaged in human trafficking. they are engaged in murder and extortion. and are violent criminals there is a sense of justice. a sense of this is what's right to say the people who are violating the border like
crazy we should use their ill gotten gains to finally build the wall and finally ensure we have the assets to secure our border. ainsley: how can you secure his assets? does he have this like in a bank account, $14 billion? brian: under his mattress. >> they are scattered worldwide but the government right now has extradited el chapo from mexico is proceeding with a criminal prosecution. the first step is to convict him. once he's convicted, the government is seeking the forfeiture of $14 billion and the government will go and prove where the assets are and go forward with forfeiture, following a conviction. and ordinarily, that money goes to the treasury for certain specified uses. border security is not among those uses, so my legislation is very simple. it says el chapo's assets and for that matter any other drug cartel whose assets are forfeited their money would go to building the wall and keeping the border secure and keeping the country safe. brian: senator i know the president has tweeted out still going to build the wall, trust me on that. but he wants $1.2 billion out
of this budget to start it. how do you explain senator chuck schumer saying that's a nonstarter. why does it mean so much to him to not do this? >> well, it doesn't. chuck schumer doesn't care about the issue. but there is a radical left base that right now has senate democrats terrified. it's the reason a couple weeks ago that they filibustered neil gorsuch. the first partisan filibuster of a supreme court justice in history. chuck schumer's left wing radical base is demanding that they oppose everything. i think chuck schumer and the democrats want to shut down. i think they are trying to provoke a fight. and chuc schumer is just tryingo put more and more unreasonable demands trying to force a shutdown to apiece those who want total resistance, total opposition who don't want the trump administration to succeed. steve: senator, i don't know if the wall is a good idea. apparently in the last day or so nancy pelosi said that the wall will take food from babies and cause dirty air and dirty water.
>> you know, nancy pelosi is a whole special kind of -- i'm just going to leave it at that. [laughter] ainsley: have you talked to the president about this plan? what was his reaction? >> listen, we have had very good conversations with the white house. with the president and we're walking cooperatively with the president and creatively trying to figure out how do we accomplish the objectives that the president ran on that i ran on, that republicans across the country ran on and we're working with the white house every day trying to get those objectives accomplished. brian: mexico says they are mad. they might put a tax on americans coming across because they are so mad that this has been brought up before. what's your reaction to mexican lawmakers. >> listen, it has long been good politics in mexico to engage in some an at this americanism. they are there are wonderful people in mexico. we deal with them every day. wonderful people in mexico. politicians are politicians. it's not surprising that there are some who are trying to take advantage of the sentiment.
we have got to solve the problem. steve: we do. >> i have spent a lot of time on the border in texas and mexico. the border is not secure. brian: got what. >> couple months illegal immigration has dropped 50%. ainsley: good news. thank you senator for being with us. brian: next hour coming your way. ger. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem

from democrats went for president trump this year. why is that and how do they feel he's doing so far? so breakfast with friends as we talk with great folks at pete's restaurant in canton. so we'll be chatting with him later in the hour. steve: that will be great, pete. the president of the united states has been up and tweeting this morning regarding what happened with the blockage from the ninth circuit court of appeals out in california and his executive order regarding the sanctuary cities. he tweeted this. ainsley: the first tweet says first ninth circuit rules against the ban and now hits again on sanctuary cities. both ridiculous rulings. see you in the supreme court. brian: and one of the rulings came out -- here's another one of his tweets. out of our very big country with many choices, does everyone notice the ban case and the sanctuary case has brought in the ninth district close to overturn, close to 80%. they used to call this judge shopping. messy system.
a lot of people are still calling it judge shopping. and what they're saying is since they got this money, all of these cities got this money without any preconditions in i guess was april, you can't put preconditions on there. i'll back up a second. i don't have the burden of a huge legal background, but i will say this. isn't it assumed that you have to go by the laws of the country when you accept money by the federal government? and what other way is there to enforce that you go by the federal government than the federal funds that you're getting? isn't it implied that when you become a city of america you go by the rules of the nation? steve: just a couple of weeks ago we saw jeff sanctions talk about sanctuary cities and if they wanted money from the department of justice in particular, this impacts three programs. if you want that money, you've got to cooperate with ice. but this judge said based on what the president has said in the past, while it may apply
only now, in the future, he may make it apply to everything, so it's going forward. sean spicer put quite a statement earlier. he said this particular blockage was a gift to the gang, and he says this: the decision occurred in sanctuary city that released the five time deported illegal who gunned down innocent kate steinle in her father's arms. san francisco and cities like it are putting the well-being of criminal aliens before the safety of our citizens and those officials who offered these policies have the blood of dead americans on their hands. ainsley: that is so powerful. i sat down wit with the steynly family, and they said they didn't even know it was a sanctuary city and they say now we know. their christmas will never be the same. their easter will never be the same. can you imagine walking by your child's bedroom and knowing you're never going to see them again? it's not that people are
heartless and they don't want to feed families or children but the president said he's not going to rip moms away from their kids. he just wants to get the criminals out. this guy had been deported five times. his rap sheet was so long. steve: shouldn't be in the country. she should be alive. brian: you have a lot of democratic mayors listening to the attorney general, they had meetings yesterday and the attorney general thought he was making progress. not to do a favor for president trump. not political. it's go by the rule of law and not looking for the kids brought here as young kids. they're just asking you to follow the rules of the law. you make an arrest, this person has a history, he doesn't belong here, you call ice. states like california and cities like san francisco don't call ice. judge napolitano says, listen, this is not good for trump, but it's really not that bad. listen. >> the president's defeat if you will, and i go like this in quotation marks is a
temporary one because in october, the new fiscal year kicks in. ainsley: all right. >> and the new grants will come out. and the new grants will be written by the present congress and signed by president trump, and they will have in them the requirement. you want the money? you cooperate with ice. you don't cooperate with ice, you don't get the money. ainsley: everything has become so political. democrats don't want to support this president because they don't like him. but when it comes to the facts, it's going to keep america safe. and they said they're going to cut off funding to eight sanctuary cities unless they can prove that they aren't turning the other way when it comes to undocumented immigrants. so all they have to do is prove that they're not turning the other way, that these criminals are going to be deported and out of our country for good. that's all they have to prove. so i don't know why the democrats and republicans can't meet in the middle and say, yes, that sounds like a reasonable thing. steve: they're the party of know when it comes to president trump in the first 100 days. on this particular day the president of the united states
why is that important? republicans say if you're going to cut taxes, you have to have a paid for element in this. now, in theory when you cut taxes, it's going to grow business and more revenue comes in. but in hard numbers, if you want to get all the republicans onboard, many are saying the rubber hits the road on the no border adjustment tax, paul ryan wants it. paul ryan was not necessarily consulted nor was he taking the lead obviously in this, which is significant, because he did on health care. and this is his -- steve: how did that work out? brian: right and that is the theory why he's not taking the lead now. the story is have you poisonedly well on tax reform by not getting all the republicans, at least onboard because you know how special interests are out there. steve: there is one new thing that had not been mentioned, and that is they're talking about a territorial tax system where u.s. corporations generally you make money overseas, you've got to bring it back at 35%. this would change things so corporations would pay little
or no tax on future foreign earnings because, you know, from 35 to zero, that's a good enticement to go ahead and keep your company here in the united states. will that be part of what we see from the treasury secretary this afternoon? stay tuned. also, we understand apparently it sounds like to ivanka, who had talked about some sort of tax credit for child care, that could be in it. and also to try to get as many democrats onboard. it sounds infrastructure could be part of it. so this is going to be a busy 97th day. brian: will apple and other international companies say. okay. mr. president, we're going to bring back money. if these other companies get in line. ainsley: what's the corporate tax rate in china? do you know? or what do they tax? brian: it's on the tip of my tongue. ainsley: lower than 15%? steve: no, it's lower than the united states. ainsley: right. we know that. but when the new corporate tax takes effect 15%, will it be cheaper for companies to stay here or go?
steve: that's why google was invented. brian: and also ireland is very cheap. a lot of our money is there with the irish with our people, with my people, which i'm only 22%. steve: i'm only 16. ainsley: they left to go to the czech republic, they left ireland because it was so expensive. brian: right and that's why i don't use it. i use plastic now. ainsley: banning. steve: that's right we've got sarah huckabee with us from the white house, all sorts of questions for her. but in the meantime, we've got a fox news alert. ainsley: jackie has that for us. hey, jackie. >> good morning, everyone, at home. intercontinental missile in the pacific according to the military, it traveled 4,000 miles before splashing into the ocean. the test becomes rising sentencings with north korea. u.s. is now installing a missile defense system in south korea after deploying warships. today the entire senate will converge on the white house for a briefing on the north korea situation.

and there's killings before that carried out by ms13. steve: that is congressman peter king of new york on the spread of ms13, a gang made up mostly of illegally. it has gotten so bad that king's district in new york has asked the federal government for help. so just how bad is it and what can the feds actually do? let's talk to somebody who is familiar with the crisis, former new york city police department dna who is down in florida right now. dan, let's start with who are these guys many s13? >> yeah., steve, these guys are the worst of the worst. if you had a scale of the worst gangs out there based on violence, these guys are number one. this is a gang primarily composed of guerrillas. el salvador literally gorilla fighters who use murder strictly as a tool. there's no moral or ethical firewall for these people at all when it comes to using violence. for them, it's just a tool to
intimidate. they are the worst of the worst and, you know, really shame on some other media outlets for not covering this. i think it has a lot to do with the fact that illegal immigration is the fuel of feeding this fire of gang activity in these areas. steve: well, and when you historically think about gangs, you think of the crips and the bloods and the way it's presented in the mainstream media, it's just another one of those gangs. they don't mention that all of these people are in the country illegally. >> absolutely and ironically the initial purpose of this gang activity and the explosive growth that ms13 gang activity was to quote protect the members of the illegal immigrant community who they felt were being preyed on by other gangs. but the only way to incorporate illegal immigrants is by getting a steady stream of illegal immigrants and the media want to brush that aside. steve: but for the county to ask the feds and say, hey, we are in a desperate situation, you have to help us.
what could the feds possibly do to help that county in new york? >> yeah. steve with i'm intimately familiar with this area, i lived out there forever. first, we need a border wall. without a secure border, the border is just a suggestion. what are you going to do? put a stop cyber there? number two, this is important. the feds have to start using these rack tier-induced corruption organization statue use. they used it to take down organized crime in the '90s. they had been using it on gangs, but they have to use it more. they have to expand the footprint because when you get one member of the gang, you can take them all down foot for a crime, that is. steve: and the wall would stop them because they're from e el salvador. dan, we thank you very much for your perspective live from palm beach, florida. >> you're very welcome. steve: next up on the run down for this wednesday, pete is having breakfast with ohio and guess who he's talking to? two folks who voted for president obama and then this

questions. we have a tax preparer, a nurse, an auto salesman, and a former teacher, as well as the owner of pete's restaurant. we're going to ask them all on their take of the first 100 days, as well as a quick grade. wade and sharon here are folks who previously voted for barack obama but then voted for trump. why did you switch? >> i like the slogan america first. i'm confident he's going to get things done, and he takes no crap. >> so you switched -- that's true. you switched, we're 97 days in, how would you grade the president right now? >> a minus. >> a minus. >> everyone is giving him a real, hard time. >> absolutely resistance. >> you also switched. what made you switch over president trump. >> i just wanted somebody who happened a business mind that's not political. i'm not saying he's not political but for what he's done in his own corporation in his own life, let's see him do it for america. >> and you know firsthand
working in health care. >> health care, pharmaceutical companies are charging way too much. >> why did you vote for president obama in the first place. >> i've always voted democrat. always. just for the fairness and the democracy. i just wanted to change. >> wanted to change. >> so you want change we're almost 100 days in, how would you grade the president's effort so far? >> i would say b. >> and would prevent the a grade? >> more time. i need to see more time in what he's doing. >> would you like to see the democrats treat him a little bit more fairly? >> absolutely. absolutely. i think they're being very unfair to him. >> well, sharon, thank you very much. he's a tough guy if he's wearing steelers gear in browns country. you're in auto sales on the front lines, why did you support president trump? >> from the moment he came down the escalator, you knew i knew it was about change.
>> so you were there from day one. >> day one. >> right now, it's security. too long we've waited people do whatever they want to do and now you mess with america, and it's america first, so you better watch out. >> so you love bringing america's presence back to the world stage. >> absolutely. we're going to be a world power again. >> and if you had a grade for the president, what would it be? >> it would be an a. >> and what do you hope on the domestic side he can get done next? >> well, i mean, we just need to get the house and the senate behind him. they're supposed to represent the people and right now, they're just representing themselves. >> sure. lori, you've been a trump supporter. what do you like most about what he's done so far? >> for me, the supreme court nomination with neil gorsuch, that was for me. >> absolutely what grade would you give the president so far? >> well, i'm going to give him an a-plus. i think he's delivered on everything that they've allowed him to deliver on, and i expect that he will continue to work for the promises that he tends to keep. >> well, said.
especially in the face of a lot of headwinds. speaking of a plus, i have to give pete and pete's restaurant an a-plus this morning. thank you for hosting us. >> absolutely. >> and as a business owner, what are things you would like to see addressed, if possible? >> a couple of things. the most important thing to me and my employees is i would really like the affordable care act to be affordable. we tried to put in a health care plan in about a year ago and one of my cooks back there, mark, it was $1,200 for him. that's not affordable for me. and about six years ago, we were able to put a health care plan in here, the same plan would have been about $200 a month. >> so premiums coming down, plans coming down has to happen. >> absolutely. >> as you can see here, tons of smart folks. we've had a lot of wisdom and common sense that president trump's trying to bring to washington. and of course the swamp is fighting back. but you can see there's a lot of confidence and standing behind him as he does so. so thanks for sticking with us all morning here. steve: that was great, pete. thank you very much. and what is telling is he was
talking to that woman down the way who was a democrat and voted for barack obama twice, and she says the democrats are standing in the way of president trump from being successful. ainsley: the media has been unfair, the mainstream media and how about the cook having to pay $1,200 a month for his health care. steve: that's unbelievable. ainsley: ridiculous. steve: got to do something about it. meanwhile, it's 8:30 here in new york city, huge day for president trump, new executive orders, a couple of them, and a big announcement on tax reform. and that's not all. deputy press sarah huckabee is going to give us a look at what's happening shortly. brian: and how is this for justice? isis fighters taken down by a pack of wild boars. not kidding. this is a true story. they're all dead. thanks, guys. i owe you one. aleve with direct therapy tens device,

brian: we found out last hour that most of the music you hear on the white house are coming from inside. thankfully the windows are open, so we're able to hear that. joining me now, deputy press secretary sarah huckabee sanders. welcome, sarah, thanks for joining us. >> good morning. thanks for having me here this morning. >> well, i understand amongst the things that are going to be taking place today, and we'll talk about the north korea meeting in a while, is going to be the unveiling of the framework after i tax overhaul. what can you say for certain that is going to be in this rollout? >> look, i'm not going to get ahead of the president's
announcement that's coming today, but what i can tell you is that we're going to be extremely focused on exactly what this president complained on, exactly what he has been focused on these first 100 days, and that's creating better jobs, higher wages, and in a environment where there's consumer confidence want to go out and hire new people. you're particularly this president are making sure people have a hand up, not a hand out, and you're going to see that reflected in today's tax roll out. steve: well, the president did campaign on lower corporate taxes and, you know, we've read in the papers that it's probably going to be around 15%. we also heard the president say he would like to lower the highest individual rate down to 33%, so we would imagine it's going to be something on that. but is there going to be something for the democrats? are you going to reach across the aisle and might there be -- you don't have to say yes or no. but might thereby something in the form after i big infrastructure project? >> look, again, i'm not going to get ahead of the announcement.
steve: but there might be. >> but there's always a possibility, but i think better than what's in there for republicans or democrats but what's in there for all americans, and that is a tax policy that's simplified and makes sense and helps the american workers and middle class, and i think you're going to certainly see that today. ainsley: sarah, something that he also ran against was illegal immigrants coming into our country, getting the criminals out. so what was his reaction or or the white house's reaction to this judge blocking this executive order not to fund sanctuary cities? >> look, i think if you've seen the president's tweets this morning, he's made extremely clear his position on this, it is an outrageous overreach by an unelected judge that simply doesn't understand the law, which is frankly sad that he's a judge, i guess, if you don't understand the law, maybe you shouldn't be making judicial decisions. but i think that even my 3-year-old knows if you break the rules there are
consequences, if cities break the law and don't enforce federal law, there should be consequences. and this is a big problem but one the president has been committed to tackling from day one, and we're going to move forward, and we're extremely confident we'll prevail in the supreme court. brian: so one of the things the judge said is the constitution power. the order cannot unconstitutionally place new conditions on federal funds. because those conditions weren't there ahead of time because it wasn't the president's budget, it was the last president's budget, that's what this judge is going on. >> look, again, i think this judge is making an outrageous overreach. there's a reason that people continue coming to the ninth circuit and there's a reason that this circuit gets turned over. i think it's nearly 80 or 90% of the time because they're constantly making judicial overreach. that's the case here and, again, we're very confident that once we get outside of the ninth circuit to the supreme court, we'll prevail. the president will prevail but most importantly, the rule of law will prevail in this case.
steve: well, you were talking about's tweets, and he referred to this judge and judge shopping. we also had on about an hour ago ted cruz that suggested one of the ways the u.s. government could actually pay for the wall and kind of indirectly mexico would pay for it would be to take the frozen assets of el chapo, which total about $14 billion, and use that on the wall because he says right now, there is no appetite in the congress to spend the money on the wall. but listen to this: the wall will get built, according to ted cruz. >> there is a radical left base that right now has senate democrats terrified. and chuck schumer's left wing radical base is demanding that they oppose everything. so i think chuck schumer and the democrats want to shut down, i think they're trying to provoke a fight. steve: nancy pelosi said the wall will take food from babies and cause dirty air and dirty water. >> nancy pelosi is a whole special kind of -- i'm just going to leave it at that.
steve: well, what do you think about that? the president will eventually make sure that the wall is built; right? >> absolutely. i think this has been one of the things you've heard the president talk about as much as anything. he takes the safety and security of the american people extremely serious, and we've got to stop the drug trafficking, the human trafficking, the drug cartels, the gangs from coming into our country, and the president committed to that, and he's going to make sure that that has happened. i haven't had a chance to talk to him about senator cruz's bill but it seems like it could be a pretty good idea. ainsley: mexico would actually be paying for it. >> yeah. and i certainly agree with him that nancy pelosi is a special kind of something. and i think her comment showed just how out of touch she is with the rest of america and the reason that she's in the minority and not the majority. brian: all right. so let's move on to the last topic, and that's lucas tomlinson saying
we've tested an intercontinental missile that would possibly be used if we had to take action, i imagine against north korea. we understand every u.s. senator has been advised to the white house to get a briefing from the chairman of the joint chief of staff as well as our secretary of defense on the threat that north korea brings to the table here in 2017. why now? what happened? why now for this meeting? >> look, the tensions are high, i think that there's no secret about that. but also, i think that we finally have a president who takes north korea seriously and is going to do something about it if necessary. and i think that's a big difference between president trump and the previous administration. but the reason for the meeting today, let me be very clear. this is a senate briefing simply taking place on white house ground. this is something being led by the senate and the white house is simply providing the location for them to do that.
but because of the importance of this event, i think it's a great thing that they're doing and shows the cooperation of both the senate and the white house to work together to make sure that north korea does not continue to be a constant threat. brian: so you expect every democrat and every republican to show up? have you heard that some are not coming? >> you know, i haven't seen a final list, but i would hope that whether it's democrat or republican, people can put politics aside and focus on the safety and security of american lives. again, north korea is one of the greatest threats we face in the world today, and i think that any senator that doesn't show up is a disservice to the state and to the country by not being part of this. steve: we should point out for folks who were watching the tv screen a portion of your answer we actually put up the new video, there it is right there, from vandenberg air force base. this is of the missile test they had just a while ago. brian: i believe it went 4,000 miles. ainsley: also, sarah, ivanka was invited to germany by
angela merkel, she sat down a women 20 summit and all high profile women, including angela merkel. and listen to what happened. the media -- the mainstream's media reaction when ivanka starts talking. listen. brian: in berlin. >> and new reality, from the. >> from the audience, so i need to -- ainsley: the audio is not exactly -- >> officially joining her father's administration, ms. trump appeared in berlin where she shared the stage with some of the most powerful women in the world and face some uncomfortable questions about her dad's attitude toward women. >> finds herself instead defending one man. a handful of hecklers hissing and.
>> she came with baggage. her father's baggage. as those words, some members of the audience away from the microphones began to grown. >> in her first overseas trip as presidential adviser, ivanka trump getting a rough reception after saying her father is a champion of families. steve: well, you know, she handled it with grace in what she said afterwards. so let's be honest. europe doesn't like this president, sarah. >> look, i think yesterday that was just another pathetic example of the left screaming out. they love to talk about the war on women. i've said it before, i'll say it again. the biggest war i see on this country is women that support this president. i think ivanka is a tremendous asset and frankly women around this country who's such an advocate sitting directly next to the president and helping influence that policy, helping us focus on this issue and actually making it a priority,
not just talking about it like past administrations have done. but taking action. i think that's something you're going to see from ivanka, something you're going to see influence her father on, and i think that is something we should be cheering on instead of having any negative impact. whether her last name was trump or not, she is smart, successful, and strong, and i'm glad she's sitting there next to the president. brian: and she said i'm used to it. it's no big deal and angela merkel personally invaded her, she answered the invite. ainsley: she's a mother of three, she's incredible hard worker. just because he's daughter of the president they don't like, then their politics is involved. unbelievable. steve: sarah huckabee sanders, thank you so much for joining us from the north lawn. >> thank you so much for having me. brian: coming up straight ahead, remember when president obama said this about wall street? >> i did not run for office to be helping out a bunch of, you know, fat bankers on

government on while we have kristen. thank you so much for being with us, kristen. >> thanks for having me. ainsley: you're welcome. so what is your reaction to this? he was a critic of wall street, and now he's taking a lot of money for this speech. >> right. well, first of all, i'm just wondering what obama could possibly say during a one-hour speech that would be worth $400,000. but, yes, this is the height of hypocrisy. obama called wall street bankers fat cats while he was campaigning because it was politically advantageous. now he has turned around and taking $400,000 from those same bankers because it's financially advantageous. it's all about personal gain for obama. but, you know, ainsley, this isn't very surprising. most politicians from both political parties do cash out at the end of their term. but democrats end up looking more hypocritical than republicans because it's the democrats who constantly rail against greedy rich bankers and rich business people.
and for the last eight years, the media has tried tirelessly to portray obama as being better than and more ethical than other politicians. well, obama has come right out and shown the left that he's just like every other bureaucrat and, in fact, he may be worse. he's accepting more than double what the clintons typically receive for a similar speech. ainsley: what do they normally get? 200? >> yeah, around $200,000. and, you know, i think this just kind of speaks to the fact that the democratic party, they say they're for the little guys, the working class people. but they've really morphed into an out of touch party for the rich and the elite. look at what happened in 2016. hillary clinton, she received $48 million from private equity firms and hedge funds. trump only received $19,000 from those same folks, and i think that's part of why people voted for trump. they know he can't be personally enriched by the office of the presidency. he's already a billionaire. and i don't think there's anyone in america who thinks that trump is going to be
giving these pathetic speeches to wall street when he leaves office. it's beneath him, and he doesn't need their money. ainsley: all right. kristen, thanks for joining us. great to see you this morning. >> thanks, ainsley. ainsley: you bet. coming up next on the run down, people magazine a sexy vet, doctor is here with some big news for you about what your dog is doing while you are at work. and first, let's check in with bill to find out what's coming up at the top of the hour. >> they make cameras for that now, don't they? ainsley: they do. >> white house press secretary sean spicer, who wins in this battle over sanctuary cities, what does the middle class get for tax reform? you've got iran, you've got the spending deadline, it's all coming up live from the white house. all of that and flying cars coming to a parking lot near you. i love this country. we'll see you in minutes. top of the hour here on america's newsroom with claritin-d.

brian: here's a question. answer to yourself. do you know what your four-legged friends do when you're away from home? steve: i just assume watching tv. but researchers find many dogs suffer from anxiety and stress when we leave, which can lead to trouble. brian: right. ainsley: here are some ways to keep your puppy calm is known as the sexy vet according to people magazine. brian: so ainsley earhardt. ainsley: we like sexy vets. brian: so how can cameras help us? how could looking at our dogs help us understanding what they're going through. ainsley: you're so cute, you're distracting brian.
all right. so a lot of people are using these cameras to watch what their pets do at home. but for people who don't have the cameras, how do you know what your pets are doing? >> you just don't, obviously. that's where a lot of the researchers were surprised to see when owners would leave, and they would finally put cameras on, they had no idea how much dogs were doing. steve: but doesn't that make sense? because we know when they're with the dogs, they love us so much and then when we leave, they're sad. >> true dog saddan is. they're pacing, howling, crying, chewing, sometimes destroying. steve: how can we fix it? brian: can we get a life size cut out of ourselves? ainsley: we can try. >> try to limit the amount of time you leave home, try to come home on lunch breaks. ainsley: don't go to work, brian. >> given the distraction when you do leave home because initially you're getting your keys and getting ready to go and that's you can give them a calm or something. steve: i'm going to be gone
but here's a treat. >> something they have to work at that's going to give them time, time to figure out. ainsley: we had a black lab, and she had suffered from anxiety, so she would bite this one part of her arm, and i remember my parents are, like, we're spending so much money and my dog is on antidepressants. do you see some of that? >> we do see some of that and dogs benefit from that. i've tried other methods before resulting to medication. brian: what about a swiffer. how does that play a role in this? because sometimes dogs make a mess. >> exactly and if you're thinking of adopting a new pet, that's a big thing you're going to be working with, so we have a duster to help out with this, and of course the sweeper here. ainsley: these are so easy. do you use these, janice, at home? >> what is it? ainsley: a swiffer. and it's so easy. no longer do you have to get the big pail with the water and all of that. brian: we'll be right back. all of these dogs are adoptable.
