intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the u.s. clayton: griff jenkins in washington, d.c. with a fiery response. >> good morning, happy fourth of july, guys. it's the kind of fireworks we don't want to see. north korea successfully launching to be what it claims to be intercontinental ballistic missile capable of hitting the u.s. and countless allies. further ratcheting up tensions on the korean peninsula. saying quote north korea has just launched another missile. does this guy have anything better to do with his life? hard to believe that south korea and japan will put up with this much longer. perhaps china will put a heavy move on north korea and end this nonsense once and for all. the missile was launched at 8:40 p.m. east coast time last night. u.s. pacific comants command releasing this statement saying the missile was tracked for 37 minutes and landed in the sea of japan. we are working with our interagency partners on a more
3:05 am
detailed assessment. we continue to monitor north korea's actions. closely u.s. pacific commands stands behind ironclad commitment security of allies in the republic of korea and japan. this comes ahead the g-20 summit. the president departing tomorrow with a stop in poland on thursday and germany on friday where he will meet with china's president and japan's prime minister. both of whom he spoke with over the weekend. ahead of this trip now, even more to discuss, guys. so the president leaving town after the fireworks tonight with much on the table. abby: very busy, very important week ahead. griff jenkins live for us. pete: think about that missile test if you have a missile that can reach the united states of america that's a game changer. he said the era of strategic patience is over when it comes to north korea. if you attach a nuclear war head to that that becomes existential threat to our country. abby: all the more reason to get china on board. they are the one nation that can put that pressure on north korea. will they listen?

3:07 am
change as griff jenkins was talking about. g-20 trip. landing first in poland. everyone is wondering what president trump and envladimir putin talk about. they focus on the optics not the substance of talking about. they shook hands. they were smiling. these two are in it together. they are best buddies. who knows what is actually said behind closed doors. will that be focused on? i hope it is. pete: sometimes we get the optics and sometimes leaked audio. we have hot microphone moments and people forget how boom microphones work which is how it worked in this situation where president obama is sitting there with medvedev a few years ago and this is that hot mike moment where he talked about re-election and how he would have flexibility, remember that. >> this is my last election. and after my election i have more flexibility.
3:08 am
yeah. flawbled. clayton: i will understand i will transmit this information to vladimir. pete: nuclear agreements being signed between the united states and russia. imagine if that was said hot mike moment between? two leaders meet to get the plot to world dominance. the reality is we have very divergent interests in a lot of the places. russianst realize we are no friends of theirs. if it hate reset they have been willing to be cold and strong with the russians. abby: reports are going to talk talk about reports of syria and ukraine. maybe met ling in the election won't come up. as you say with president trump you can't predict how the conversations are going to go. maybe have something planned beforehand. that's the personality he has. who knows what will come up and be said. clayton: we saw rex tillerson when he met with the russian government it was firm on the relationship in syria.
3:09 am
it wasn't as if they went over there and playing paddle ball in the backyard together. pete: riding horses. clayton: shirtless horse riding. pete: never been afraid of the optic, either. remember right after some of the issue of the tapes came out or i can't remember the exact timing, he was willing to meet with the russian ambassador in the oval office. same thing here, is he not backing off with meeting with vladimir putin. is he not going to let the media tell him there is collusion or proonget meeting with the world leader to try to solve big things. abby: new poll about the america's trust towards president trump and also towards the media. if we can show these numbers up on the screen it says a great deal of good amount of trust the trump administration, 37%. in this poll, the media, 30%. obviously you are not going to hear them report on this. because they only like to pat themselves on the back.
3:10 am
clayton: how polls are doing? pete: think about that 35%. put a lot of faith in polls. even that trump administration 37. other polls have him as high as 50%. rasmussen polls. clayton: some of the most accurate during the election. pete: have him much higher like 50. abby: you are the most honest of all. who do you trust more the trump administration or the media? send us your thoughts this morning we will of course read them and play them back. peelt pete or a big fan of the polls. they had are always right too because they nailed it. clayton: let us know what you think how much you love polls. abby: and how accurate are they? >> charlie guard. the debate going on in london about this child. abby: have you followed this story? pete: i have. abby: i'm just learning more about it but it is a heart breaking one. one that every parent can relate to of the young son who is on life support in the u.k. and i guess have given the hospital permission to take him off life support.
3:11 am
the parents are fighting for their little boy's life. the pope has jumped in and saying we need to fight for every person's life even nilness. now president trump is jumping in on this. he tweeted this yesterday if we can help little #charlie guard as p our friends in the u.k. we would be delighted to do. so the only hope these parents have now is somehow get permission to send their boy to the united states to get help. pete: there are experimental treatments in the united states. the united states being a leader in medical developments for obvious reasons because of capitalism and freerkt free mea. they want to do it. the government won't let them take their kid. clayton: government is a better decider of your own family's wealth and well-being than the family itself deciding maybe they want to bring this child over to the united states to get the care they need. wouldn't we all want to do that for our own children? you are going to let the government step in and tell you what you can do. this is the way it unfold would on msnbc. play it from matt bradley.
3:12 am
listen. >> depending really on your impression he is of mr. trump beforehand you can either decide this is the president selfishly stepping in to help grieving parents experiencing a terrible wrenching pain and a baby who has a very rare and very difficult to treat illness or you can decide this was the president trying to use the grief of two parents and a small baby for political gain and weighing in to a situation that is really very much a national and european issue and not one that would expect anything from the united states politician. but, again, this just depends on how you look at it. clayton: that's a reporter. pete: that's a reporter straight reporter. i love the caveat at the end it all depends how you look at it. abby: as long as you put that caveat at the end. pete: that's the double speak. clayton: selfishly stepping in to help grieving parents. that's what he said. pete: reality is you have a state based healthcare system telling parents as you said clayton to do what they can and cannot do.
3:13 am
statism. difference between free markets and free healthcare system. for the president to step in means everything to a feel like that. doctors that want to give free treatment to this child, give him a chance. abby: when something like this is happening you take all the rules away and think about a parent. put yourself in their position. in the emotions feeling. do everything in your power to save your child. pete: do you because have you a soul. bureaucracies are governed by rules and regulations and courts. in this case a little boy is falling through the cracks as a result. abby: we will watch it i have closely. clayton: lit us know what you think. repealing and then replacing obamacare. what do members of the house think about it? we will ask one of them. congressman louie gohmert is live in our studio next. abby: looking patriotic ♪ anything can happen ♪ anything can happen ♪ anything can happen ♪ anything can happen ♪ with hydrogenated oil...

3:18 am
comes next later in an step-by-step process, one that could potentially involve democrats once obamacare has been repealed. abby: that was senator mike leon "fox & friends" yesterday. one of the republican senators behind repealing obamacare first and then replacing it so where do his colleagues in the house stand on this? let's ask one of them g.o.p. texas congressman louie gohmert who joins us now. happy fourth of july. thanks for being with us. >> happy fourth of july. abby: it's great to have you with us. >> we passed our bill three months ago. we expected the senate to do something before now anyway. but, we finally in the bill that we voted on, we were going to bring premiums down. that was a big concern before. it wasn't doing any real repeal. it was leaving too much of obamacare in place. but, people couldn't afford the premiums to keep going up and they were going to keep going up with the bill that was originally proposed. but, the senate, all this time
3:19 am
later, and they come out with a bill that is not popular enough because, according to people i trust, we're leaving all of obamacare in place. the premiums aren't going to come down. the deductibles aren't going to come down. abby: where does this go? that is the frustration that republicans have promised us for years and years if they had the power they would figure out what to do with healthcare. here they are they still can't come to agreement. mike lee at least come together on rebeal and preplace. who knows how long it will take them to get a replacement. >> if there is a repeal done, the president tweeted that out, he is playing it so smart,. abby: is he? how so? >> when he tweet out, look, i'm okay just doing a straight repeal and work on a replace later. it's what some people have talked about doing with the tax code. just repeal the tax code. set a date certain, and then
3:20 am
it will force us to get a replacement done before the deadline. and so that he same kind of thing is being proposed potentially for obamacare. i just know that the huge majority of my constituents, people around texas, they are hurting. they cannot afford this any further. they lost their doctor. they lost their insurance. the people that were giving them the life-saving work are not in the network now. and part of that was the plan to bring down obamacare so people would beg for socialized medicine. we can't go there. we have got to help the american people. abby: heart breaking when you hear these stories. i have traveled around the country as well. it's very real. these why they are hoping on the house and senate to figure this out. >> the senate has got to get it done. i was telling the president sunday don't let them drag their feet too long. keep the fire lit. that's something he has been doing. it's been fantastic. abby: that is for sure. >> they are dragging their feet. they are slow-walking this.

media? >> they are. they love did. i have to say as a business owner myself, i love it as well. i love to see what he is doing. clayton: let's talk about whether a he is doing with some these regulations and get our hands dirty. some of the regulation roll backs that he has done january cutting two regs for every one ruled. february each agency will review recommend masks. >> for years all the business owners i speak to and biggest complaint is government regulations. please get out of the way and let me run my business. now though see a guy in the white house doing just that for every one regulation created we have to get rid of two. sends a huge message to the business community. clayton: any specific can you point to small business owners this one has changed things for us. >> there are actually many. one that comes to mind is actually trade. one of the executive orders that president trump did recently where he is telling
3:47 am
the department of commerce and other agencies to look at all trade agreements with the idea of seeing if there is anything that does not put america first. if they are unfair. clayton, again, i have countless business owners that have complaints made about unfair trade agreements with other countries and they are not able to grow and sell into other markets. again now when they see him actually instructing his department of commerce to look at anything that's unfair resonates very deeply. clayton: here are. so trade examples. examine trades of country treating the united states by trade partners and then buy american, hire american executive order. what does that one do? >> that is actually the federal government favors companies that are not only hiring nonimmigrants and, again, some of these are controversial, i will say that also companies making in this country. president trump likes companies that are making stuff in this country and hiring americans to make stuff as opposed to companies that are making stuff out of this country and hiring non-americans. a lot of the businesses are
3:48 am
doing just that if they get favorable treatment by the american government to do business with them they are all in favor of doing that. clayton: one of the things i'm excited about dr. from this administration is this apprenticeship program. you know there are companies that are ready to hire right now. they want to hire because people are demanding their products hand services. they are having a hard time finding specialized labor. >> correct. clayton: by this apprenticeship program. what would that do. >> biggest problem among small manufacturers in this country. finding good people. what's happening is a lot of these companies have to invest their own money and partner with local high schools and technical schools finding people skilled. cannot find people levels of skills to operate the machines and do the work to produce products. this apprenticeship program. investing hundreds of millions of dollars in this program to enable businesses both large and small to get skilled workers into their companies. the point of all of, this clayton, is as i'm writing every day for "the washington

post, we're reading about all the tweets and the antics and the behavior and everything that the president is doing. the media is focusing on august of this stuff while behind the scenes a lot of things are being done to ease up regulations on businesses and provide suprem support. so all the business owners, medium size companies, executives at larger companies, thumbs up. clayton: gene, great to see this morning. happy fourth of july. >> >> you too. clayton: president trump gearing up for second overseas trip, is he going to meet with vladimir putin. what does corey lewandowski expect from that meeting? we will ask him at the top of the hour. and we are firing up the grill on this independence day. we have a tasty pork chop recipe for you. don't want to miss that we'll be right back. ♪ going to get a little crazy ♪ because can i ♪ you know i'm in it for the moneyliving moneyliving ♪ going to have fun ♪ liberty did what?

4:05 am
ourselves of isis and isil. if there is ways to do that, then the president wants to do that clearly. he wants to be fighting terrorists in those countries not in our country. if there is way to get that done i think it would be at the top of the agenda. i have read that secretary of state rex tillerson has a desire to allow u.s. citizens to start to be able to adopt russian babies again. that's stopped in the last few years. that's something on the agenda that the president could be talking with vladimir putin about. pete: you are talking about policy. if you look at the coverage of this. do you think you are going to get a lot of coverage of that policy or instead are you going to get did they shake hands? did they not shake hands? did they give each other a bro hug? was a there a head lock? clayton: was there a body slam? abby: are they wearing a shirt? pete: more coverage of this or just palace intrigue. >> the media doesn't want to cover when the president achieves a number of things, obviously. as you know, they want the sensationalism.
4:06 am
they don't want to talk about all the pieces of legislation he has signed. all the good he has done to help coal workers and aluminum workers and putting people back to work with the stock market. the highest has been yesterday in the history of the markets. the market has been through the roof, jobs, the economy. all of those things are doing great because of the president's policies. nobody wants to talk about that. they want to talk about everything but his right policy he is. clayton: guests on the show wondering whether or not he would press vladimir putin on meddling in our election. >> it's a question, you know. here's what we know guys. it wasn't that long ago where 17 government agencies all agreed that it was meddling. now all of a sudden that didn't take place. right? now it was three or four government agencies that maybe something took place. what we do know is that barack obama knew if russia waste trying to meda meddle it was unr his watch. donald trump won the election
4:07 am
fair and square. hillary clinton was a terrible candidate. she couldn't find michigan and pennsylvania and ohio on the map. she wouldn't find iowa. russia had nothing to do with her being a terrible candidate. abby: how much can you trust the mainstream media today there is a new poll out. npr, marist poll. they asked the question how much do you trust the trump administration and the media for the trump administration a great deal. good amount 37% for that administration. you compare that to the media at 30%. corey, so they're below the trust of the trump administration. what do you make of that? are you surprised? >> i'm not surprised because i have always said the american people are very splatter. what they know, what they get with this president is the truth. maybe they don't want to hear the truth but he always tells them the truth. the difference is with the media. we have seen this from cnn to abc to the failing "new york times" to the "the washington post" and the "wall street journal," they all write false narratives, fake stories. they have to recant or replace afterwards because they didn't have the facts right.
4:08 am
we saw that with cnn recently. we have seen it with the "new york times" recently. the bottom line is the president goes to twitter and tells the american people exactly what the truth is people's head explodes because they don't want the truth it doesn't fit their narrative. clayton: if you were at the beach like crist christie here in new jersey. people going after. people in new jersey don't like chris christie. most unliked governor in the united states. he has 15% approval rating right now. he was there on a private beach, state beach. everything else was shut down so no one else could go to the beach. people are outraged in the state of new jersey. the media outraged about it making front page of the "new york post" and other places saying is he a hypocrite and arrogant for being able to sit on the beach while other beaches were closed to typical new jerseyians. what do you make of this. >> governor criminals city had the state closed because he wasn't happy with the budget deal. that budget deal is now signed. and everything is back open today. bleant optics weren't the greatest. here is the difference.
4:09 am
what was he going to do sitting in his office all day waiting for the legislator give him a piece of legislation and okay we're going to agree to it? again, if the fake media news stories that want to sensationalize things that don't need to be sensationalize i had. this is the narrative that they want. this is always the narrative they want. sensationalize things that aren't a big deal. pete: he may have a 15% approval rating but he held the line to make sure taxes didn't get increased in the state of new jersey which is what democrats want time and time again. optics are bad but the media are pouring over it remember when they were talking about m&ms. they are going to go after republicans in this case it's chris christie. >> again not talking about the policy. not talking about the fact that the governor held firm in knot raising taxes and making sure that the money in the state was used from taxpayers to the best of his ability. no. they want to talk about a picture of him on the beach with his family. i saw what chris said yesterday. he said look it would have been a real story if he was
4:10 am
next to a 26-year-old. that wasn't the glas. that would have been a real story. abby: emotional one getting a light of attraction around the world. president trump is now even talking about it charlie gard, you can see here a young boy who lives over in the u.k. he is on life support. the hospital has been given permission to take this boy off life support. the parents as can you imagine are fighting for his life. the pope has chimed in on this and president trump tweeted this yesterday. he said if we can help little charlie gard as per our friends in the u.k. and the pope, we would be delighted to do. so as you can imagine, corey, any parent thinking about this it's an emotional one but msnbc took to the story yesterday. this was a reporter covering. this take a listen to how he put it. >> depending really on your impressions of mr. trump beforehand you could either decide this the is president selfishly stepping in to help grieving parents experiencing terrible wrenching pain and a baby who has a very rare and very difficult-to-treat illness or you can decide this
4:11 am
was the president trying to use the grief of two parents and a small baby for political gain and weighing in to a situation that is really very much a national and wiewrp european issue and not one that would expect anything from a united states politician. again, this just depends on how you look at if. clayton: selfishly tweeting about, this corey. >> depends. >> what's amazing is the president has such a big heart. he heard about this story around said if the united states can be helpful, by all means if the parents can brings the baby over here. if that baby can live one more day, one more week, one more month, one more year, wouldn't any parent do anything they can to make sure that their child stays alive as long as humanly possible? what i don't understand the president has a big heart. he has offered the opportunity if the parents can come here to have medical care for that child which is obviously very, very i will. they should be praising the president for this work right now. it's so disgusting that the media want to attack him for trying to help save a child's
4:12 am
life. this is beyond reproach even by the left wing media of msnbc. abby: absolutely heart breaking. pete: just a reporter though, telling it straight. that's what they tell us every single day. >> no bias over there what if that reporter's child? wouldn't he want the absolute best care for his child. pete: great point. >> amazing to me the hypocrisy that we have to listen to. abby: when you put it in that perspective, corey, it's a great point. have great day, corey. happy fourth. >> happy fourth. pete. clayton: get it over to jill within a with a fox news alert. jillian: we begin with a fox news alert. breaking overnight. north korea claiming first successful intercontinental missile with possible range to the united states. president trump posting a fiery response tweeting quote, north korea has just launched another missile. does this guy have anything better to do with his life. hard to believe that south korea and japan will put up with this much longer.

go to southport. talk to people today. replay those interviews you guys had in the first hour. this idea still beats in the hearts of americans. most important probably though, is how much it beats in the hearts of people in other countries. i use to say, pete, and clayton, you know that, that if you're in a foreign nation with a boot on your neck and you see a you group of soldiers coming up a hill carrying a flag, you pray that it's the american flag because that is the only group of soldiers you can count on that are there to help you, not to hurt you. abby: gives you chills. you can't help but feel so feel patriotic, see hit of this country what it means. new poll out, secretary. i know you have thoughts. 35% of people under the age of 30, they say they are not patriotic or not patriotic at all. you have two millenial sons.

5:12 am
guy pushes back. pete: absolutely. i see a sign behind you, let's roll. we talked about how the declaration led to revolution. >> right. pete: you speak about not just ideas you have, but willingness to fight for them. declaration led to revolution we almost lost. took courage of a few to preserve our republic. >> i remember reading in one of the latest biographies of george washington he lost more battles than almost any general in history. you're right. this thing was touch-and-go. of course they were badly served. they didn't have equipment, didn't have material. didn't have shoes a lot of them, fighting greatest army in the world. but you know whether it is brittish red coats or now this nut in north korea, the american people, the american people are up to it. i said the other day one of the best things about fox, i know i'm a company guy here, but salutes to the military. constant theme of how much we owe the military.
