roneto infections. xeljanz can reduce the symptoms of ra, even without methotrexate, and is also available in a once-daily pill. ask about xeljanz xr. >> have a great fourth. america's news headquarters starts now. >> julie: good afternoon. any moment now the off camera white house press briefing is set to start. and there is a whole lot to cover ahead of the fourth of july holiday recess. good afternoon. i'm julie bandaresrepublican senators trying to reach a consensus on healthcare. now, this comes as president trump welcomes the south korean president to the white house during his first trip to the u.s. the two discussing future relations between the two countries and the way forward on north korea. chief white house correspondent john roberts live on the north lawn. so, john, president trump went
after north korea during his comments, but he also took a shot at the south korean area on trade. what did he say? >> reporter: well, the president earlier this afternoon in the rose garden, or this morning actually, said there's a longstanding friendship between the u.s. and south korea, one that has lasted for decades. however, the president did note that there was some disagreement over trade, particularly the korean u.s. free trade agreement. it was signed back in 2007 in the bush administration. went into effect in 2012 during the obama administration. there's a sense here at the white house that they need to go back to the drawing board. in fact, the whole thing may need to be renegotiated. the president certainly didn't mince words, standing next to the south korean president when describing his displeasure with the trade deal. listen to what he said. >> we will do more to remove barriers, to reciprocal trade and market access. we talked last night and today
about some tough trade issues like autos and steel. i'm encouraged by the president's assurances that he will work to create a level playing field so that american workers and businesses and especially automakers can have a fair shake at dealing with south korea. >> reporter: the president also had healthcare on his mind earlier this morning. marking a big change in his approach compared to earlier this year and during the campaign where he said the repeal and replacement of obamacare needed to happen almost simultaneously. the president saying, quote, if republican senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately repeal and then replace at a later date. now, the president's tweet is in line with the thinking of senators rand paul promoting repeal and then sometime down the road, maybe even as long as
a year down the road tackling replacement. there's a concern though at the white house that that proposal might scare off moderates. the white house also reminding the current senators on the republican side that every one of them except for susan collins two years ago, 2015, voted to repeal obamacare, a bill that was actually tougher than the one that's before the senate now. however, back then there was no chance that that was ever going to get signed into law. the president also doubling down not too long ago on his feud with the host of the msnbc morning show, joe scarborough and mika brzezinski. this morning they charged that the president offered to spike a negative story about their romance in the national enquirer if they apologized to him for months of criticism. the president pushing back on twitter saying, watch low rated morning joe for first time in a long time. fake news. he called me to stop a national enquirer article. i said no. bad show. a source close to the president and close to jared kushner told
fox news that joe scarborough, according to the white house source, had called jared kushner to find out if something could be done about the article. according to the source, jared kushner told scarborough you need to talk to the president to which scarborough replied, he's mad at me, to which kushner said maybe you should apologize. i'm told there was no discussion of a quid pro quo. just the idea if you want to get back on terms with the person you used to be friends with, maybe you should apologize. julie? >> julie: i feel like you're reading out of a high school year book. >> reporter: these are members of state and very important things. i think we need to bring in rex tillerson and the team to get involved. >> julie: i'm not mad at you. >> reporter: nor i you. >> julie: that's good. thank you, john roberts. mitch mcconnell is working to hammer out a new healthcare deal seeking a recipe that can get
the backing that can pass. he's sending new ingredients to score the cost before the senators return from their holiday weekend. mike, is there a new deadline, another new deadline, i should say, for a deal? >> reporter: julie, not officially, but some are suggesting if there's not an agreement by july 10th when senators return to the capitol, it might be time for a plan b. there's a lot of tension here on capitol hill. they've been wrestling with healthcare reform for weeks. mitch mcconnell is still trying to find a path to 50 votes to pass his healthcare package. >> mr. president, senators in the white house are continuing discussions on the path forward on bringing relief from obamacare, and its collapsing markets. we've made good progress and we'll keep working. as we do, our focus will remain on the major obamacare problems that continue to hurt americans all across our country. >> we are not anticipating any
big break throughs or huge announcements today. more just sending out paperwork to the congressional budget office to get a better sense if they do certain proposals, what the price and impact estimate might be. julie? >> julie: so another question, is there also a split on the democratic side? >> reporter: some have suggested there may be a split on the democratic side. you've got moderates that are saying let's sit down with the republicans and try to fix what is wrong with obamacare. then you've got a more liberal wing of the democratic party featuring people like elizabeth warren of massachusetts who would like a single payor or universal healthcare approach. one moderate democrat downplayed those differences. >> i don't think there's a split in the caucus. i think the caucus would love to work to get healthcare for -- better healthcare system. fix the problem with the current healthcare system. but the price of admission, 22 million we've been working for, that's going to be tough to swallow. >> reporter: many have noted if
addressing healthcare were easy, it would have been done long ago and likely in a bipartisan fashion. julie? >> julie: mike emanuel, thank you very much. >> reporter: sure. >> julie: for more on this, chris stirewalt, thank you very much, chris, for talking to us. all right. so i want you to react to now potentially repealing, but not replacing right away. a senior white house source has confirmed to fox that they just don't expect any break through in the senate today on a bill. then i want to read this tweet sent out earlier by president trump. he said earlier today, you know, if republican senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately repeal and then replace at a later date. so, what does that mean? >> well, it means they're back to where they started back in march. this is essentially what paul ryan and his team came up with for their first draft in the house. and if you'll recall at the time, rand paul and some others
convinced the president that this was a potential bait and switch, and that if they did this, then later it would never really get repealed because they would just keep pushing the deadline out. so they said you have to do concurrent. you've got to swing the hammer hard. you've got to really repeal it. you've got to really replace it and do it right now. republicans should have spent the last seven or eight years, should have been crafting what they wanted to do and building consensus around replacement. but they didn't. so they don't have that. that's not going to happen. there's no cbo score, there's no magic beans that are going to change that proof. they lack a plan. they lack imagination sufficient to the moment. they need to buy themselves more time. the sas plan gives them that. >> julie: what just happened in the last three days? the president's idea to just repeal and replace came three days after he had that meeting with gop senators at the white
house think seemed to go pretty well. but this isn't going over well with the gop. and mcconnell, you know, essentially wanted to come up with some kind of idea today. do you think he'll ignore the president here and continue to push through and try to bring forward a new senate bill? or does he shorten the july 4th recess and then bring everybody back early? >> well, the other part of what sas is calling for is to cancel the august recess and spend the rest of the summer essentially working together to come up with a plan. i think that for mcconnell's purposes, i don't think he cares one way or the other, as long as they can get something through. i know ryan would have to be pleased that they got back to his original idea to buy a little time. not that seven years wasn't enough, but to put together a plan they like. that could improve the chances of that happening. and most important, and this is really what we're talking about here increasingly, is not what's the future. what are supports and subsy
disand things for the future. the real issue is november is coming. in november, if congress hasn't acted to shore up obamacare, millions of people will lose their health insurance. it's going to be a real disaster. if republicans let that happen while they're standing around playing tiddly winks, it's going to be a bad scene. >> julie: chris, thank you very much. >> you bet. >> julie: now in just a few minutes we'll be talking to wisconsin governor scott walker about everything from healthcare to north korea. now we take a pause here. we have a fox news alert. in fact, we have a live look at the scene of a plane crash. this is a small plane crash happening on a busy interstate. two people have been hospitalized after their small twin engine plane crashed on the 405 freeway in southern california right next to john wayne airport in costa mesa. trace gallagher has been following this story. first, the thought that these people survived is just a
miracle looking at this wreckage. >> reporter: it's amazing. they're in bad shape, but that is an amazing thing. this is a twin engine cessna that crashed on final approach to john wayne international airport in orange county, south of los angeles. the pilot was in contact with aircraft traffic control and did declare an emergency saying may day may day, indicating that he was not going to make the runway. if you saw an aerial, the 405 freeway is 50 yards from that west facing runway at john wayne national airport. so far, the airport, even though they were in contact with the pilot, has not released any information ab what caused the crash. witnesses say the plane tried to land in the right-hand lane of the south bound 405 freeway. just didn't make it. struck the median, then spun around and immediately caught fire. the two people on board, as you said, julie, they did survive. we're told they had major injuries. now, if there's any good news in all of this, it's that the plane
did not hit any cars on the freeway. considering the 405 is the busiest freeway in the nation and was jam packed at the time, the plane not striking any vehicles is in itself a small miracle. the bad news is that all the south bound lanes of the 405 are shut down as well as two of the northbound lanes. we're told traffic is backed up for several miles. on the friday before a holiday weekend, this is going to be a major ordeal. by the way, we should note finally that incoming traffic to john wayne has also been shut down for the time being. >> julie: nobody killed on that highway though. that is the story in these two passengers. let's just pray for them and hope they can pull through. trace gallagher, thank you. a revised version of president trump's travel ban going into effect last night adding tougher rules on anyone who can enter the u.s. from six majority muslim countries. but will it stand? >> not focusing on people from one religion or one culture, but
focusing on, you know, every airport, every country around the world. ♪ if you have bad breath and your mouth lacks moisture, you may suffer from dry mouth. try biotène®, the #1 dentist recommended dry mouth brand. it's the only leading brand clinically proven to soothe, moisturize, and freshen breath. try biotène®. pain's kind of self-defining. not when it hurts, it hurts. when i can't do something, it makes me feel isolated. with aleve, you can stay strong longer because only aleve has the strength to stop tough pain for up to 12 hours with just one pill. tylenol can't do that. i get to be present and enjoy what i love. this is my pain. but i am stronger.
>> julie: president trump's travel ban making a relatively smooth debut. the supreme court giving the go ahead for most of the visa restrictions earlier this week. but also promising to hear arguments on the temporary ban this fall. doug mcelway is live from washington. a big difference this time around in round one. >> reporter: huge difference, julie. with the travel ban in effect for the better part of little more than 18 hours now, there have been no reports of chaos at any airports that we're aware of. no word of any improperly
detained passengers. people at dulles say despite the big holiday crowds they've seen relatively small protests. not to say there are not protests. there have been some. new york's union square. protesters organized by the new york immigration coalition chanted against what they call the trump administration's unjust separation of families. then late yesterday in hawaii, attorney general doug chin, who you might recall was instrumental in blocking the first travel ban challenged the new one. in his motion to a federal judge he said, i'm quoting, in hawaii, close family includes many people the federal government decides to exclude from that definition. the trump administration is very very confident that the hawaii case has very little standing. here's attorney general jeff sessions appearing on fox and friends this morning. >> it's an act activist attorney general. they were slapped down by the supreme court.
they had an initial victory by a judge in hawaii that issued an order that found the whole united states which is really an overreach in my opinion except under extreme circumstances. i believe that this argument will be heard, of course. i don't think it will be sustained either. >> reporter: also last night the state department quietly added a new category to the list of those who are exempt from the travel ban. it is fiancees. that is not likely to quell the challenges and protests from immigrants rights groups that we're seeing crop up across the country both domestic and abroad on that note from abroad the foreign minister has now weighed in on the travel ban. he said and i quote, it is a truly shameful exhibition of blind hostility to all iranians. that coming from the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism. julie, back to you. >> julie: doug, thank you.
lawmakers heading home for the holiday weekend without voting on the healthcare bill. we're going to ask wisconsin scott walker to weigh in on the dead lock. also on the president's twitter habits. his fellow republicans, meanwhile, are pleading with the president to stop tweeting. but what do the voters think? we've got the results of a new fox poll straight ahead. you totaled your brand new car. nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. 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. if you have moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis like me, and you're talking to your rheumatologist about a medication... ...this is humira. this is humira helping to relieve my pain...

bustle.com and a fox news contributor. are you surprised that there are ten gop senators that are basically requesting that the august recess be cancelled? it's not just for health care. lot of unfinished business. >> yeah. no, i'm not. right now the clock is running out. fiscal year will run out in september. they have a lot of things to get done on a very short calendar. if they want to do anything before they get to 2018, which is critical, canceling recess is a good idea. the house freedom caucus suggested the same thing. if they can cancel the recess and getted some work done, it's an important step. 2018 will be an election year and one in which conservatives and trump supporters are not going to get many of the things legislatively they want at all as the senators try to move towards the middle. >> julie: do you believe this senate bill will be part of the plan or will they go forward and eventually admit that they don't have the votes and they don't have the time to go ahead and
replace obamacare, so instead we'll just repeal it and get to it later as the president suggested? >> i don't think they're gonna go for that. i think republicans and democrats are all aware of the fact that you can't take something away and not give a replacement plan. i think president trump was quite reckless to suggest that. i'm not surprised that they are suggesting that. it reminded me that they put a bill forward that congress men had to work a 40 hour work week. >> julie: they are often criticized of the long breaks they get. they want to come back or cancel. >> this is not something that should happen every year. every year we need better health care. we need tax reform.
>> julie: let's move on to the story of the week. morning joe. president trump continuing their feud on twitter. anchors responding to the president's tweets this morning. let's listen. >> the president's tweets, whether they're personally aimed at me or aimed at me in some way, that doesn't bother me one bit. he appears to have a fragile impetuous ego. especially with women. he can't take it. i saw this happening yesterday in real time. >> it comes as 71% of voters say president trump's tweets are hurting his agenda. kelly anne con way also weighing in on the feud. >> it's incredible to watch people play arm chair psychologist outwardly ridiculing the president's physicality, his mental state.
calling names that you wouldn't want children to call kids on a playground. you would punish them. then faining shock when he wants to fight back and defend himself. >> julie: the president also tweeting and this happened earlier today watch low rated morning joe for first time in long time. fake news. he called me to stop a national enquirer article. i said no. bad show. the whole national enquirer thing is bizarre. apparently morning joe, they say they threatened him. >> julie: they believe it was dangled in their faces by the white house. the white house says no. there was an editor that came out from the national enquirer and said they knew nothing about either party being involved. >> donald trump's tweet confirms
that he was in some way involved. i don't want to bring up the immediate of the media. it's concerning when you have the president of south korea visiting and it's energy week. you've got better things than to be tweeting about this. both sides need to calm down. when kelly anne conway defends him, sarah huck abee. two weeks ago ivanka said i haven seen such viciousness. consider the president's tweets. >> julie: we understand this is great for their ratings. what does this do for the president and their agenda. there's a new fox poll. do tweets help or hurt president trump accomplish agenda. 71% say hurt. three days ago it seems like he had made some headway for gop senators who are opposed to the healthcare plan. today it looks like it's not
going to happen. in between were these tweets. vince. he should take every action and this one doesn't fit with those categories. he'll be better served by focusing on doing the things that got him elected in the first place. >> i meant to say melania said she was going to be an advocate for those who are being cyber bullied. >> julie: she also did defend president trump saying that he's attacked nonstop and when he hits back he hits back hard. doesn't matter if you're a man or woman. >> just because it's not sexist doesn't mean.
>> it's hardly bullying. >> julie: jessica, vince, thank you both. there is other news including movement on healthcare. we will be speaking with governor scott walker next. plus -- it's what you don't hear about and big city mayors talking about. law enforcement in some cities are now saying sanctuary cities are not as safe as you might think. >> we saw a decrease in crime. it had a deterrent effect on folks because the risk of discovery went up when we enforce the law. i joined the army in july of '98. our 18 year old was in an accident. when i call usaa it was that voice asking me, "is your daughter ok?"
(woman vo)o) my husband didn't recognize how tour grandson.eeth. (woman 2 vo) that's when moderate alzheimer's made me a caregiver. (avo) if their alzheimer's is getting worse, ask about once-a-day namzaric. namzaric is approved for moderate to severe alzheimer's disease in patients taking donepezil. namzaric may improve cognition and overall function, and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. namzaric does not change the underlying disease progression. don't take if allergic to memantine, donepezil, piperidine, or any of the ingredients in namzaric. tell the doctor about any conditions; including heart, lung, bladder, kidney or liver problems, seizures, stomach ulcers, or procedures with anesthesia.
serious side effects may occur, including muscle problems if given anesthesia; slow heartbeat, fainting, more stomach acid which may lead to ulcers and bleeding; nausea, vomiting, difficulty urinating, seizures, and worsening of lung problems. most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, dizziness, loss of appetite, and bruising. (woman 2 vo) i'm caring for someone with moderate alzheimer's. if you are too, ask about namzaric today. >> julie: cities and mayors are speaking out against president trump claiming sanctuary cities are safe because imgrants are more likely to report crimes. but law enforcement in those same cities say that it's actually the exact opposite. william loneness breaks it down for us. hi, william. >> reporter: at the core of the debate is the question, are sanctuary cities safer? some politicians in places like los angeles frbg san francisco and some other large cities insist they are arguing that if
no one fears being deported, they'll report more crimes, police will catch more criminals and everyone is safer. >> we depend on our communities particularly our immigrant communities to not only keep them safe but keep all of you safe. reporter: but some studies do not support that. in an analysis found violent crime is slightly higher in cities. there is no statistically discernible difference in crime. so many street cops oppose sanctuary policies. fphoenix was a sanctuary city. the crime rate fell. >> when we eliminated our
sanctuary policy in 2008, we saw crime of stolen vehicles drop by 2025%. we saw 20 year low crime rates. >> we saw a decrease. folks felt less comfortable because the risk of apprehension would go up. >> reporter: so the boston globe found 30% of criminal aliens committed new crimes at a rate four times higher than even suggested by ice. . bill must pass the senate. >> julie: thank you very much. joining us for more on other topics is wisconsin governor scott walker. thank you very much for talking to us. these are two positive measures that were passed by the house. the effort here to crack down on sanctuary cities and also on deportation. the reason being and for one of them case law basically meaning
that these are repeat offenders. they are free to in this case kill a girl ten years ago. is this enough for you? >> you explained it right. we're talking about felons, serious criminals. these are people who have committed very serious crimes against society and the fact of the matter is, once they're arrested, convicted, they shouldn't be in the united states. we're not talking ant questioning the general legal status. that's a whole other debate. here i just can't fathom why anyone would be against this. if someone's committed a serious crime, obviously in the case of kate's law, that particular person had multiple felony offenses, then commits this outrageous homicide and murdered this young woman.
there are plenty of other people out there. why do we want to let those people in the united states is beyond me. >> julie: kate steinly murdered two years ago on the streets of san francisco. her killer had not only been in jail multiple times. he had actually been deported and got back in. >> right. >> julie: these sanctuary cities and yanking funding so these cities cannot harbor these criminals is one thing. but then how does this protect victims like kate from happening again when they're getting out of the country and coming back in. that's a border problem. >> right. it's one step in the right direction. ultimately you've got to have border security. it's what the president talked about, members of congress talked about it. as a governor of a state, one of our most fundamental responsibilities is the safety of our citizens.
you don't have a government if you can't secure your borders and keep your people safe. this is exactly what president trump was talking about. it's got to be more than just talk. you have to have a secure border. >> julie: i say one strike and you're out. obviously deporting every illegal immigrant in this country is pretty impossible. if you get caught in a crime, you're out. there should not be second chance. these cities will protect them. >> we say most places across america, if you commit a felony, you're no longer eligible to possess a firearm. those are simple points. if you break the law and commit a felony, you can't get that. why should you be coming back to the united states? >> julie: i want to move on to the travel ban. it went into effect last night. you announced support for the travel ban in 2017 at the time when it was much stricter. and at the time you called it a safety issue. what do you make of the language in this new travel ban which
apparently has got some iffy language in there as far as, you know, bona fide relationship, who's in, who's out, who's not allowed. it can be a bit confusing. how do you feel about it? >> it really is about safety. that's the thing. those who oppose the president tried to claim this as some religious test. that's ridiculous. if that's the case every muslim based country would be prohibited from bringing people in. this is about setting a standard that goes back to the previous administration. countries who are not going to cooperate with the united states to let us know who's coming in from those countries particularly for refugees. we look at the horrific things that have happened in europe and other places around the world, we want to know who's come lg in. we're gonna let them in if they cooperate. if they don't we have to protect our citizens. >> julie: there's a differential between 90 and 120 days. refugees have to wait 120. there's a cap on the resettlement program. with all that said, how do those
guidelines affect the safety of citizens here? >> well, the more tools we have the better. i'll take something better than what we've had under the obama administration which is wide open. many governors including some democrats have complained to the previous administration about the fact that refugees were coming into our states and we had no idea who they were. they were coming from countries who wouldn't tell our fellow government for the safety of our citizens we should know. >> julie: healthcare. lot of gop governor, in fact, had piled on and had been secretly planning coming out and trying to put pressure on the gop senators. it seems it worked. trump says that the gop candidate get a repeal now, then they'll maybe replace it later. the question is what happens in the interim and is that a good or bad idea? >> well, i think the best thing they have to do is keep their promise. republicans in the house and senate ran as the president did
on repealing obamacare. it is collapsing. it is failing. one of the things i wish they'd talk more about is the fact that their own agency and the congressional budget office said that 28 million americans will lose their health care coverage if nothing happens. if obamacare continues. we don't hear that typically from any of the other media sources out there. we need to let people know obamacare is failing. the house took a while. it was about six weeks between the time they first took a vote until the end. it doesn't have to be this week or next but it has to be this year in 2017. >> julie: lastly, i want to ask you about president trump's tweets. we have polls that agree with this, that it makes it harder for the gop to get their agenda and message through. do you agree with that? if you could speak one on one to president trump and give him friendly advice on his twitter account, what would it be? >> i tell him to tweet more, be on facebook more, to get the message out more, but to be focused. i think it's great that he has
contact with all the great americans out there and he is unfiltered. but focus. focus on why this healthcare, obamacare has to be replaced. focus on what the better alternative is. focus on the need for tax reform. focus on why your administration is doing good things. talk about those things. tweet more. i'm fine with that. but don't get off lead. talk about why you're doing that and the american people will come along with him. >> julie: okay. wisconsin governor scott walker, a pleasure to talk to you. thank you very much. >> happy fourth of july. >> julie: you, too. be safe. as the senate debates the next step on the healthcare replacement bill, we're gonna break down some of the pivotal senators and what they want from the bill and which states with the highest rates of opioid addiction are playing into the mix. also, a popular restaurant offering to bring its dishes to your front door.

>> sheperd smith. sarah huckabee sanders giving an off camera briefing to reporters right now. but the white house embargoed the audio until after it's over. today is a key deadline in the republican healthcare effort. we'll take you live to the white house and capitol hill. that's coming up on shepherd smith reporting. >> julie: one of the sticking points for a number of republican holdouts on the senate healthcare bill is funding to address the nation's growing opioid epidemic. majority leader mitch mcconnell trying to get senators back on board by adding $45 billion to the bill for addiction treatments and prevention. trace gallagher is live with more on that. hi, trace. >> reporter: for sure the opioid epidemic is a top priority for the jump administration and with good reason. last year 30,000 americans died from an opioid overdose.
that's about equal to the number of people who were killed in traffic accidents. and according to the national institutes of health between 2010 and 2015 diagnosis for opioid addiction went up more than 500%. but treatment and the delivery of medicine only went up 65%. the problem is especially bad in the southeast and midwest. in 2015, the states with the highest drug overdose deaths were virginia, with more than 41 out of 100,000 people dying. new hampshire second. kentucky and ohio tied for third. which is why ohio gop senator rob portman said quoting here, i continue to have real concerns about the medicade policies in this bill especially those that impact drug treatment at a time when ohio is facing an opioid epidemic. what portman is specifically talking about is the gop health bill will phase out the expansion of medicade that, as we know, has exploded since
obamacare went into effect. the gop bill only has $2 billion ear marked to treat opioid addiction. senator portman, along with west virginia senator shelly moore want at least $45 billion allocated to the opioid crisis. but south carolina senator lindsey graham said you can give away the house to just a few senators. listen to him. >> more money for opioids might help the problem that some senators have, changing the growth rates of medicade to make them a little more generous might help some. but if you do too much of that, you're gonna lose other people. >> reporter: studies show that half of those that died from things like a heroin overdose started using prescription opioids in the form of painkillers. julie. >> julie: trace gallagher, thank you. whether you love it or hate it or can't get enough of it, olive garden's famous food could soon be delivered fresh to your door.
its parent company said they have teamed up with amazon. you wouldn't even have to leave your house to indulge in chicken parm or tasty bread sticks. the ceo said they are testing out amazon prime delivery. manga manga. okay. so what is the plan? >> reporter: we don't know exactly. i couldn't get the chicken parm out here, only the breadsticks. could be that you could order some appetizers and bread sticks, maybe the full menu. what made it interesting was the involvement of amazon. think about all the industries this has disrupted. this could be another one. here's how the whole thing came apart. the company that owns olive garden was holding a conference call. one of those conference calls where it talks about this. it was testing out the idea of delivering food via amazon for one of its top brands.
olive garden would qualify. it's not only one of darden's top brands, but one that appeals to young people. 30% of the olive garden customers are millenials. do they go in and disrupt this industry? other companies are already involved like grub hub. wouldn't be the first time we've seen it from amazon. we've heard they are teaming up with nike to sell sneakers. another example. >> julie: all right. thank you very much. i'll take a bite of that breadstick after the show. a world war ii submarine is stuck in the most unlikely of places. some people are trying to save it. laura ingals is there now. laura? >> hi, july. here along the hackensack river in new jersey. the submarine has been a floating museum for years, but an eviction notice has been served. how are you gonna get a ship that big under a bridge that's that small. big question. we'll have an answer after the break.
>> julie: a high speed submarine from world war ii. local new jersey volunteers want to use the parts for a naval museum, but the 2500 ton ship has become inaccessible and stuck in a river bank. laura ingall is there. she joins us live. hi, laura. >> reporter: hi, julie. we may be off the beaten path. we're in back of the diner's parking lot. the uss ling has been serving here since 1973. the thing has been here for a very long time. it's super cool. lots of people love to come visit it. the 312 foot long world war ii era vessel served as a floating
museum authorized by a group of local veterans. there's also a small museum on shore we want to mention. new owners of the property though have plans to redevelop the area and have served an eviction notice creating a challenge for the museum and the sub. >> physically, yes, we could move. we don't have a place right now to move to. as far as the ling, unless somebody comes up with something that we haven't heard already, as to how you can move it from the river here to some other place, it's gonna stay in the river. >> reporter: now, when the ling was first commissioned in 1945, she was capable of being on war patrol for 60 to 90 days. well, today the ling is rusting and rotting in a river that's only three feet deep at low tide. there's no way to float this thing and it can't fit under the bridges nearby because these
bridges don't open. now, in 2012 when hurricane sandy badly damaged the pilings to the pier, that eventually made it inaccessible to the public, causing this to close in 2015. while this massive submarine doesn't technically have to go under the eviction notice, environmentalists say it should, and the only way to get it out is to dismantle her piece by piece, cut it up. lot of people don't want that to happen either. those who run the museum say there's a plan they have in place that they would like everybody to look at. but we'll have to wait and see what happens. >> julie: all right. laura ingalls, thank you very much. we'll be right back. if you total your new bike, they replace it with a brand new one. that's cool. i got a new helmet. we know steve. switching to allstate is worth it.
