1:03 am
american people on board too. >> exactly what he had to do, he is going out and using the bully pulpit to sell it to the american people, rally conservatives, rally ordinary americans and get it done. he has to have more details like that. the $4000 figure is shaky for most of the economists i talked to in part of the problem is we don't have a tax bill yet. we don't know what the rates will be for each individual group so he can't go out yet and say in a credible way if you're making this amount of money this is what your tax bill will go down, if you're making this amount of money, he has got to make it real for ordinary americans. heather: football players who refuse to stand for the national anthem will not be penalized, that decision is owners and players gear up for a second

1:18 am
medications are opiates because they have certain brand names but it centralized prescribing unit we can monitor what patients are using and we should have strong guidelines how to -- make sure physicians, why we have addiction. >> when we talk about a centralized system tracking more of it that will allow pharmacies to do a better job. >> this is not implement it a little bit, pharmacies take action saying we won't see a doctor they can't prescribe but only going to give patients ten pills so they are able to monitor how much and how quickly it is used. jillian: that has artie taken affect. and law enforcement. >> we need law enforcement. i would love to say it is just a physician pharmacy problem but we have a lot of illegal substances coming in a that is what people are dying from, opioids are laced with fentanyl. from the southwest border we have to stop the foot traffic but from overseas china is

1:25 am
accused of mocking the senator. listen to this reaction, probably too young to realize people used to get polio in this country, matthew says mocking a guy with polio is a hallmark of great journalism, cnn must be proud of your stellar reporting. condorcet is making fun of the president for helping a polio survivor that stumbled a mistake classy. other people are saying just because she pointed out they were holding hands doesn't mean she was making fun. any response from her? or cnn? >> no response. she hasn't deleted it. heather: maybe she will. the border wall, some prototypes. >> one of the president's biggest campaign promises is happening, yesterday the president took to twitter and posted a video that shows the progress of a prototype for the
1:26 am
border wall being built. in total eight prototypes are under construction which is going over well with the president's supporters, john says thank you for your commitment to our nation's border security, build the wall and stop illegal immigration. another tweet said congress, build a wall, listen to the people who voted for trump, not going away. heather: look at the prototypes and choose among them. >> isn't that interesting? heather: eight options. >> finally, this country music song. jillian: a cute one. created a song to support fans and players standing for the national anthem in the nfl, take a listen. not going to stand for my hand on my heart ♪ old glory represents ♪ this is my love ♪ >> finger pat garrett posted

heather: welcome back to "fox and friends" first, we are back with a fox news alert, major blow dices is us back forces in syria have liberated the terror army's self-proclaimed capital rocca. live from london, more on this major victory. >> reporter: syrians have been celebrating for 24 hours, many of them have had little to celebrate in months. part of the reason we are seeing a lull is the city about to fall, a lot of syrian fighters
1:32 am
surrendering for the last 48 hours, the us military is reluctant to declare total victory. >> isis is losing its grip. after four months of operations rocca is 90% cleared. we are aware of reports that isis has been defeated but clearance operations continue and we expect our democratic force partners to hit pockets of resistance as the final parts of the city are cleared. >> reporter: the reason for that is many of the iis fighters that remain in raqqa are foreigners. they were not afforded the same opportunity to surrender like the syrian fighters were. the militia wants them dead, doesn't want them to return or go elsewhere or go other places to fight. they are running out of food, water, ammunition but that will take some time to get rid of them. as the capital of raqqa of the islamic's military says the
1:33 am
fight will not be over. the u.s. army says ias has 60,000 fighters in syria and iraq. big milestone, 3 months after the us established its anti-ias coalition in iraq in syria, a big success but the u.s. army says the fight isn't over yet. heather: what happens next and who controls what, very key. how is it possible isis spread so quickly? karl rove, chief of staff or george w. bush at the start of the war on terror says it is because the obama administration was determined to pull troops out of iraq. >> the reason isis spread so rapidly across syria and iraq was because in 2012 for political reasons the obama administration with your military forces from iraq. does anybody think if we kept
1:34 am
intelligence gathering and military training and military coordinators, and organized column of isis approach to mosul american firepower and american leadership could not have helped the iraqis keep them restrained and not allow them to take mosul. heather: some headlines, two more confederate monuments taken down overnight, this time statues of general john hunt morgan and vice president john c breckinridge removed from a courthouse in lexington, kentucky. the city hopes to move them to a cemetery where both men are buried. county leaders voted to take them down after the deadly riots in charlottesville. the mandalay bay secured he got shot while confronting the las vegas shooter is not missing after all. mgm resorts which owns the hotel says jesus campos just wanted his privacy after he mysteriously went into hiding last week. it didn't last long. he will appear on the ellen show
1:35 am
later today. >> i went to go lift a pant leg up and saw the blood. that is when i called in on my radio show that shots have been fired. heather: generating $20,000 to the las vegas victims. that is interesting. he will be on the show. remember this horrifying incident when a doctor was dragged off of the united airlines plane? we all remember is that. those two officers dragging batman have been fired for using, quote, excessive force. officials say one of those officers is a sergeant who attended to cover up details of that incident from chicago. two other officers have been suspended. donald trump is urging congress to pass tax reform by the end of
1:36 am
the year but top democrats are screaming class warfare. >> continues his war on the middle class with his unfair tax plan. >> completely focused on the wealthy and the powerful, not on the middle-class. heather: joining us for political debate, lawrence jones, host of the way that richard fowler, radio talkshow host and fox news contributor, thank you for joining us. class warfare or not? >> i would not go far to say class warfare but every time you cut taxes in this country you have to offset the tax-cut with subset. what democrats are saying is if you are going to cut taxes for the wealthiest 1% or the wealthiest 2% or for those who make a lot of money you have to offset that tax cut with draconian government spending cuts, cut meals on wheels, afterschool programs, school lunch programs, programs in the
1:37 am
defense department which put our security in jeopardy. that is the trade-off, or you create deficit spending. that is the argument democrats are making. if you're going to cut taxes you have to cut government spending. when you cut government spending you heard vulnerable americans and that is bad for the american people. jillian: your opinion? >> comical the democrats are so suddenly concerned about government spending when they do spend our money over and over again but they are phrasing this argument is just the rich. the president wants to cut taxes for all americans. when you phrase it that way i don't think anybody can disagree with that but democrats say this is just for the rich or the wealthy, it paints an unfair picture to americans the president only wants to help the rich when he wants to help all americans. heather: nearly doubling the 0 bracket and increase the child
1:38 am
tax credit that so many people want, and simplifying the tax code which will benefit people across the board. look at this poll, cbs poll asking people about current tax reforms, who do they benefit? 58% say they favor the wealthy, 90% say they treat everyone equally, 18% say they favor the middle-class, 5% say they favor the poor. this is an indication the president does need to go out there and talk about his plan, let people know who it benefits, why and how, majority people think it benefits the wealthy. >> that is part of the problem. when you cut taxes, anytime you cut taxes, 99.9% of the time you see taxes cut it benefits the wealthy unless you have attack cut to targeting the middle-class. president obama did cut taxes. he cut payroll taxes, what we have seen from this tax plan according to tax policies,
1:39 am
nonpartisan and evaluate these things, this tax-cut will be a 6-figure tax-cut for those who make money and for regular americans talking about a couple hundred bucks here or there. that -- heather: you get the final word. we should mention small business, middle-class americans will see a top tax rate at maximum 20%. >> help small business hes in return helps the middle-class as well, 35% going down to 20%. i'm not for punishing americans for coming out of poverty, this is what democrats want, what is president said, let's have small business -- let's not punish americans for getting out of poverty. democrats -- this is just for
1:40 am
the wealthy. >> just because you cut taxes doesn't mean taxes will translate into creating jobs. president bush cut taxes in the early 2000s and we had the recession of 2007-2008 meaning his tax cuts didn't translate to job creation is people said it would have. >> you have americans, we have small businesses that are struggling because you wanted to force obamacare down our throats which in return made a lot of go to part-time, this balances out. heather: we have to wrap it up. we do know it is the biggest tax reduction in the history of this country if it goes through as planned so we will see what happens. thank you for joining us. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour. the pc police want to make sure no one gets offended this halloween. a trigger warning checklist to

1:42 am
words from a doctor: stage 2 breast cancer. i have three little kids, my baby's seven years old - i can't have cancer. we really wanted a cancer team, that would care about not only my cancer but you know, how is my husband doing through all of this? and what about your three kids? so we thought that we would travel to cancer treatment centers of america and see what they had to offer. i think the hope for us came in the form of knowing that these doctors were experts, and that they
1:43 am
would help us decide the best course of action in the hopes of beating it. so when amy came to us, the first thing we did was discuss her case with the surgical oncologist, the radiation oncologist, the genetic counselor and came up with a treatment plan. the plan for her was to begin with preoperative chemotherapy, thereafter proceeded with surgery. one of things that we loved about ctca was that they give you a series of options. and you do what's best for you. depending upon what decision she makes with her surgical oncologist, we then know what to offer as the plastic surgeon and reconstruction team. dr. fernandez was wonderful. he said it's up to me to do what's best. it's about giving her options where amy has all the information to make a decision best for her. rather than one treatment fitting all, it is a personalized approach to cancer therapy. we have so many tools.
1:44 am
this is what attracted amy to our center all the way from new york. cancer is what they deal with everyday. these were people who are experts in their field. and for us that was the best choice. we left the hospital on day one feeling like, this is going to be okay. we're going to beat this and this is the place that's gonna help us do it. that feeling is priceless. learn more at cancer treatment centers of america. appointments available now. >> halloween becoming more politically correct the college campuses trying to dictate what students can and cannot dress up as. asking if costume is offensive.
1:45 am
and thank you for joining us this morning. a couple issues at hand, the conversation begins with what is offensive and who determines what is offensive? >> i made my own flowchart. helpful for most colleges to hand out. kind of complicated so i break it down. do you want to wear a costume? yes, no, do what you want should be where the conversation starts. that we are even having a conversation about the offensiveness of halloween costumes and the second sue is universities are initiating these conversations and we see this on college campuses that professors, administrators, liberal leaning students are dominating the conversation about culture so that no one is allowed to speak up and suggest it is a bit absurd that we spend
1:46 am
days talking about hurt feelings by a costume. heather: let's talk about some of the examples. is your costume offensive checklist and there are contact numbers, five hills contacted asking whether their costume is offensive and get her opinion and this says cultural appropriation, what is it and why is it bad and santa barbara flyers says a workshop on cultural appropriation and northern arizona, we are culture, not a costume and this is not okay with examples of what is not okay. you are in school, supposed to broaden your horizons, learning from each other. >> what these colleges are doing more than creating a safe space
1:47 am
culture that is leading -- perpetuating adolescence and sense of entitlement, stifling the individual rather than allowing kids to make their individual choices which is what college is for, they are becoming the moral arbiter telling them what is right, what is wrong, manipulating students into oversensitivity fueled by liberal groupthink. as we know groupthink is antithetical to intellectual growth which i think is something universities are supposed to be promoting. heather: the arbiter of humor, you said. >> exactly. the line between humor and cultural appropriation which i'm not even sure what exactly that means is subjective and it should be, universities don't need to tell you what is objectively right or wrong, what is funny, what is not. that is not their place. that it up to the individual students to make their own decisions and suffer consequences if they don't get invited to a certain halloween party, that is perfectly fine.
1:48 am
not professors or administrators place. heather: appreciate it. the time is 10 minutes until the top of the hour. some of donald trump's biggest critics claim to be resisting on behalf of the middle-class but forbes released its list of the country's richest people and guess who was at the very top? the battle over self driving cars spilling into the streets of america's biggest cities. ♪
