board. senator collins of maine says the repeal of the individual obamacare mandate which is not in the house bill is a sticking point for her. >> president trump was not my choice for the republican nominee for president. and i did not support him. i haven't reached that conclusion yet because i think there are going to be further changes. but the biggest mistake was putting in a provision from the affordable care act into the senate bill that's not in the house bill. >> the white house says they are in favor of it but open to dropping it if it means the difference between passing it and collins is most critical because congress can only afford to lose two votes. johnson says no. corker and flake on the fence. not to disappoint the american people he took aim at senator flake saying he will be a nor on tax reform and attacked this hot mike moment. >> come the party of roy

brian: we're back with a fox news alert. urgent manhunt at this hour for serial killer in tampa. ainsley: four people are dead and the fbi is going door-to-door and desperately looking for clues.
3:18 am
steve: former homicide detective and fox news contributor ted williams has been down in tampa. he has the latest from the area. ted, i understand there is a big reward. but what is so perplexing for the cops down there is the randomness of the selection of these victims. >> yeah. it is the randomness of the selection of the various individuals who have been killed here. let me take you back to october 9th, right around that time and during the course of that month of october, they found three individuals who were shot. they believe that he was -- all three of these individuals were shot by the same individual. now, let's pass now to november the 14th, on november 14th, a gentleman by the name of ron feltton, 60-year-old black man. exited at this bus stop here, started to walk across the street to a homeless shelter where he was going
3:19 am
to help out during the day. and in the middle of the street here, he was shot and killed. the individual then took off and ran. the key is that all of these killerring have taken place within a one mile radius of each other, law enforcement now believes that all of these killings are connected. and when we look at these killings, one of the central things may very well be the bus stop because all of the killings took place by a bus stop. now, when you look at october 9th, law enforcement has put out a video. on n. that video on october 9th you see a long tall lengthy man. and you can see in his right hand, that he is using a cell phone as he's walking. but then on november 14th, after the killing of fell
3:20 am
ton, we find that there was another video that fit the same description. and when he came to fell ton, there has been a person of interest that they're looking at, a black man about 6 feet tall. ainsley: so not random in the fact that it's all within one mile vicinity. but random in the types of people or they are not connected, i guess? what's interesting though, too, if you look at that street behind you, it's very busy. i thought it would be like on a dark road, maybe in the middle of the night. but that looks like a busy area. thank you so much ted williams for giving that information, the latest. >> my pleasure. brian: 10 minutes before the bottom of the hour the father of one of the basketball players arrested in china down playing donald trump's role getting them home. this morning the president responds. full-court press from the white house next. steve: six republican senators who are holding tax reform hostage. who are they? and what do they want to get in return? we're going to talk to matt

take all finale. dale earhardt jr. finished 21st final race full-time driver before throwing impromptu bud light party in the pits. meanwhile, steve. steve: thank you, bribe. republicans gear up for tax reform. a few republicans are actually holding the tax plan hostage. so, who are they? more importantly, what do they want? joining us right now is the chairman of the american conservative union and former deputy assistant and political director for president george w. bush, matt schlapp, matt, good morning to you. >> good morning to you, steve. steve: let's talk about these six republicans who are holding up tax reform. first, you've got the left -- these are the six republicans who are holding up the debate. bob corker, jeff flake. also ron johnson, lisa murkowski. susan collins, john mccain. let's start with. susan collins you, what do you want. john mccain. john mccain.
3:26 am
donald trump and he seems to be the republican that's part of every bad democratic bipartisan idea. so john mccain is always somebody on the big issues you have to keep your eye on. and think when it comes to susan collins and lisa murkowski fill sonkly they are much further left than their colleagues in the conference. susan collins over the weekend is already saying basically that she supports obamacare and doesn't want to get rid of the individual mandate and, as you know, voted against repealing obamacare after republicans took over are or after donald trump's victory. she is just doing what she always does which is being to the left of the conference. steve: should we just pencil in right now as the no. >> i have done this, as my job. but if i were counting votes right now, i would count them very conservatively, very hard to get susan collins to be for tax cuts. steve: okay. they can only lose one more and then it is toast as i have heard. actually, jeff flake, the senator from arizona used
3:27 am
the expression toast over the weekend. he is one of the two never trumpers. you have jeff fra jeff flake anb corker. what do they want? >> they want donald trump to go away. they have good conservative voting records. at least on most questions. but, you know, they have let their personal animosity of donald trump get in the way of good policies. we will see. they have been for tax cuts in the past. they are using the excuse that they don't want tax cuts to increase the deficit, steve. buff we all know as good reagan conservatives that tax cuts actually increase revenue to the government because people do more of the things that promote economic growth. steve: sure. you know, matt, jeff flake didn't hide his distaste for the president. he wrote a book about it? >> he stole barry goldwater's title and selling it on more liberal stations. kind of ironic. barry goldwater was the conservative standard bearer, it's a strange day. steve: then have you got true conservatives people who would like things to be
3:28 am
as skinny as possible. have you ron johnson, ted cruz, mike lee, tom cotton, jeff sass. >> lee has spoken says he can't support a tax cut deal that raises anybody's taxes there are losers in this tax bill. if i were a republican senator, i would want to vote for it, get it into conference and continue to improve it ron johnson is doing that now. he is saying he doesn't like the fact that big corporations get a better deal than small corporations. so he is going to keep pushing before the deal hits, before the bill hits the senate floor to try to make it better for small businesses. and i think he is doing the right thing from a conservative standpoint. steve: what's interesting is last week is the house of representatives passed their version, the white house has said they prefer their version and yet the u.s. senate isn't even looking at the house's version, they are coming up with their own. >> steve, there is a long history. it's problematic to have two houses of congress because
3:29 am
guess what? senators don't like listening to congressman. they think they are smarter because they get longer terms. i don't know why. steve: exit exit, matt schlapp does congres get tax cu. >> it's going to get in conference improved and get it done before we are opening um presents on christmas eve. steve: no doubt people like tax cuts. matt schlapp, we thank you for joining us from our nation's capital. >> thanks, steve. steve: we have a fox news alert. a man huntington for the killers of these two police officers intensifying by the hour. our law enforcement panel is here to talk about the war on cops. that's coming up. good morning, gentlemen. plus, one priest wants christians to stop saying christmas. wait until you hear why. plus another performance from last night's amas who is diana ross who got a lifetime achievement award for take me higher ♪ when it comes to love ♪ there are no boundaries

brian: we have a fox news alert. pair of man hunts intensifying two separate states. pennsylvania identifying rahmael for the murder of killing officer friday night. this as the reward hits $215,000 for the killer of baltimore police detective sean suiter shot at crime scene last week. these aren't isolated incidents. sergeant and former please investigator for the police department of investigations. dr. darren porcher, u.s. army veteran and former nypd lieutenant and steve rogers
3:34 am
retired lieutenant detective from the nuttily new jersey police department fbi joint terrorist task force. we should say for you, steve, you got new book out called "new super power for women." great. steve, let's start with you. you see these two incidents they are horrific. sadly, it's a bigger story. these are repeat violators. >> they are repeat violators, brian, we have a lot to make up for. the previous administration starting from sergeant crowley and henry lewis bear gate when president obama came out and maligned the cambridge police department. that's where it start wanted. that's where politicians were able and aloud to talk about police officer incidents before they had their fact. so, with this new administration, we're going to move forward with a pro-police atmosphere and pro-military. i believe that's going to start to break of what we have suffered for the last eight years. brian: darren, you say this isn't just an attack on two officers. this ask an attack on free vote. in what respect.
3:35 am
>> the social contract affords us protections as citizens and law enforcement is the first line of defense in protecting us. often sometimes we have to look at the symbiotic relationship between police and community. we're joined as the same. and it's important that citizens give this information to police, when we have these issues. so they need to conjoin in such type of a relationship. moving forward, we have to take into consideration, we have the two officers that were killed. the one that was in baltimore and the one that was killed in pennsylvania. that is a travesty to us as an american society. therefore, an attack on police is an attack on us as a society. brian: it's overall a lack of respect and lack of fear of retribution of what's going to happen if i kill this cop i'm in prison for life. you think the courts have let us down? >> absolutely, brian, a couple of things. one is the courts have let us down because they continuously release career criminals and they go back out on the streets and here we have them killing police officers. number one. by the way, let me add that at least president trump has set into motion putting more conservatives on the courts
3:36 am
to reverse that trend. number two, we have to start investing in two man patrol units. there are a lot of one man patrol units around the country. the investment in local, county, state, and in some cases federal government has to be made to put two cops in these cars. brian: steve, the problem is the word is getting out. no one wants to be a law enforcement official. used to be looked at differently by society. over the last 5 to 8 years. things seemed to have switched. you are not getting the numbers or qualities you used to. >> no, there has been a shift, brian, we need more training for our police officers. i don't think that there are agencies that will be able to do two-man police cars. we he need better training. we need better community relations. the attack on police officers, they attack the core of society. so, we need and we need to bring together the community and the police officers and approach this in a different way. brian: darren, something else happened that we will talk about a little bit later. brooklyn college they have now decided that they won't let cops even use the
3:37 am
bathroom, just an external one at the edge of campus which is a mess. that lack of respect for law enforcement here in new york city is unbelievable. >> i think that's a by product of the administration that we have in play. the de blasio administration has failed on many aspects of forging that relationship between police and community. and it's just unfortunate, it's a travesty to new yorkers that he was reelected. brian: the student body doesn't want them on. what's going on with the next generation of americans? >> i think the community affairs bureau and nypd can prove to be an intricate component in bridging the two entities. it's a sorrowful state. brian: steve, unfortunately we have to leave it there i the get you next time. >> thank you, brian. brian: this is ongoing debate. we all suffer when law enforcement isn't empowered. thank you all what you do. jillian mele has update on wham has been happening while we were talking.

business and not enough to small business the market did take a hit. you've got to remember, this is the maneuvering. steve: it's the dance. >> it's the dance. it's the sausage making, call it what you like. we are going towards a final package from the senate in the house together. a lot of people are standing up and saying what about this? what about that? hoping to get a concession at the last minute. ainsley: tax cuts are great for most of ours viewers. people who live in new york and new jersey where taxes are going to go up, what's the benefit for them? >> the benefit for most people in california and new jersey and new york is that you will stimulate business, grow the economy, create more jobs and wages will go up. for high income earners in those states they will take a hit. they will end up paying more in tax, not less. that's because the state and local tax deduction may be done away with. ainsley: if the economy does better, then their 401(k)s go up. >> they will benefit from that but overall, high income earners in california, new york, and
3:47 am
new jersey will suffer. it will be a negative for them. ainsley: not for everyone in the state, just the high income? >> just for the high income people, they will take a hit if they are in those states. steve: sure. although i saw some stat as they were rolling out the whole plan where something like only 31% of all-american tax filers actually itemize so it impacts very few people. but, stuart, i also saw a statistic where they were talking about even with approval polls where if the general public doesn't care for the president, they really like his economic policies so far. >> and so they should. he has succeeded on the economy. and if that's the main point of getting reelected, well, he is doing well. unemployment 4.1% and goldman sachs says it's going down. the economy is expanding at 3% growth rate. we will get 3.5% next year, maybe more, if we get the tax cut package. steve: is all of this stuff because of president trump? >> well, no.
3:48 am
the world economy is growing. that's helping us. that's not what president trump has done for us. but the growth in the domestic economy, the improvement in jobs, and getting rid of regulation, that is president trump. this is the trump rally on the stock market, make no mistake about it. brian: all this talk of trade and some of the details come out that shows he is going to be doing nafta, taking a look at bilateral trade deals, being tougher from vietnam to europe, i think is -- has the promise of even more. but here's the big picture. when it comes to the state deduction, is this going to force states to lower their tax rate or lose people and isn't that part of the plan? >> there is no question in my mind that they will lose people. they there will be an exodus of high income earners out of california. steve: sure. >> probably going to arizona, texas, and especially nevada. there will an exodus of high income people new york and
3:49 am
new jersey. they are heading straight down to florida. ainsley: florida. >> there is no local state income tax. there is no estate tax. you'll win if you are a high income earner and you make tracks for florida. steve: prediction, next year, dolls the stock market continue the tear it's on? >> i think there is a 90% chance that we do get a tax deal this year and, therefore, if we get it, and i think we will get it, the market differents to go up. but i hate to predict the stock market. it could be on the news. it okay watch out for that. steve: what you talk about every day on your program. >> i don't make predictions. steve: varney and company 9 to newspaper today on fox business. >> thank you, everyone. ainsley: thank you, sir. steve: still ahead on this monday jeff flake caught, embarrassingly, with a hot mike. >> become the party of roy moore and donald trump, we are toast. steve: oh, boy. kellyanne conway here to respond to that in just a couple minutes. brian: are you looking for

ainsley: tv's are the most popular item to buy on black friday. here are the deals you need to know before you leave your house. "consumer reports" electronics expert jim wilcox. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. ainsley: people are ready to buy and save money. what do we need to know when buying tv's. >> tv's are great. you see really low prices on brands you probably haven't heard of. those are the door buster specials. a lot of the times designed to get you into the store and hopefully you will buy more profitable goods. with tvs, these are the -- prices are lowest of the year so people want to buy them. steve: actually you brought two televisions. this is the more expensive it's the lg. why do you like that. >> this is one of the best tvs you can buy this year. olets has dominated our ratings the last couple of years. when we bought this tv in april it was $3,000. the price right now is $1,500. you will walk away with one the best tvs you can buy. it's a 55-inch tv 4 k.

3:56 am
sets. ainsley: can you go online. do you get the same deal if you wait in line or go online? >> more and more of stores are now matching their online prices in stores. you may have heard a week ago wal-mart said they were actually going to price -- do better prices in stores to get people in the stores than online. certainly one of the tough things is these deals change all the time because of the internet. you really have to pay attention to what's happening. brian: do your homework. steve: that's one of the reasons why "consumer reports" has been so popular for years you rate the televisions and figure out whether it's a dog or dandy. >> exactly. steve: thank you very much for joining us. ainsley: i learned i like that guy sean hannity than that guy charles manson. brian: president trump just weighed in on marshon lynch who just sat down in mexico city for the star-spangled banner. should he be suspended? steve: plus, kellyanne conway joining us from the white house. plus herschel walker, you

4:03 am
nation's capital on this monday of thanksgiving week. kellyanne conway good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: so the president tweeted out yesterday, hey, congress, don't disappoint the american people on tax reform. how close are we to finally getting a tax cut? >> we feel very confident, but it is up to those legislators for years have been promising their constituents they are going to get meaningful tax cuts and tax overhaul. and we are very happy that the house and senate have come up with what i call trump speed not swamp speed in getting their bills to the floor fairly quickly. we feel really great that both bills adhere to the president's four core principles for tax cuts and tax relief, relief, simplification, middle class tax cut and reducing that corporate cut tax rate so we're below the average for developed countries instead of the highest. we feel great. my colleagues have been traveling around the country, as has been the president. and up on capitol hill,
4:04 am
constantly. this one feels like everybody is oriented in the same direction. to your point about the democrats, the president has said from day one he wants tax cuts to be bipartisan. that's a question for the democrats. schuyler, there arsurely there s owners and moms and pops in every state in this country who feel they deserve a tax cut. steve: kellyanne conway, the democrats. >> partisan talk also not get in the way. steve: partisan politics is getting in the way and democrats don't want to give the president a win. >> that's too bad because it's a win for the american people. this is not about a win for the president. this is about giving the forgotten man and forgotten woman, who put this man into office because they have been forgotten for decades through regulation and taxation. and just the overbarons of a government that's intrusive, invasive, expensive and expansive. this is for them. and this is not about giving the president a win. that's silly. he is the president. he won. it's ttell hillary clinton by te way p.s. this is about people
4:05 am
winning. i do hope in the legacy of presidents john kennedy, ronald reagan, george w. bush, much smaller tax cut but that we have bipartisan support. we have always been able to rely upon that. i think the democrats are in big trouble because they have to defend 25 senate seats next year. 10 in states the president won. five he won by massive double digits. they are going to go home and say when i had a chance to give you more of your hard earned money, give you a child care tax cut, adult dependent double. your first 24,000 is completely tax free at zero pert%. they will say i didn't do it because of xyz when we know it's because of petty political partisan reasons. doug jones in alabama, folks, don't be fooled. he will be a vote against tax cuts. he is weak on crime. weak on borders. is he strong on raising your taxes. he is terrible for property owners. brian: so vote roy moore. >> liberal not you saying anything and why the media are trying to boost him.
4:06 am
brian: so vote roy moore? >> i'm telling you that we want the votes in the senate to get this tax bill through. and if the media were really concerned about all of these allegations and if that's what this is truly about, al franken would be on the ash heap of by gone half funny comedians. he wouldn't be here on capitol hill. he still has his job. what's bob menendez doing back here. that's the best new jersey can do huh, doocy? you live there. a liberal. brian: the rnc has withdrawn support for roy moore. mitch mcconnell has withdrawn support so has the young republicans withdrawn support. ainsley: and a lot of women. >> right. and you know what? i just want everybody to know doug jones, nobody ever says his name and pretends he is some kind of conservative democrat in alabama. and he's not. steve: kellyanne? >> yes. steve: will the president be going back down to alabama to campaign on behalf of roy
4:07 am
moore before the special election? >> there is no plan to do that. the president is going to continue traveling around the country on tax cuts and other issues, yes. ainsley: kellyanne, there are six republicans that have concerns about this tax reform or tax cut bill. you have corker, flake, senator johnson, murkowski, collins and senator mccain. they all have different reasons. i want to play some sound bites for you. the first one is susan collins saying she hasn't supported him from the beginning. and then this was also senator jeff flake who butted these sound bites together when he was caught on a hot mike. listen to this. >> president trump was not my choice for the republican nominee for president. i want to see changes in that bill. and i think there will be changes. there are some provisions of the house bill that i like better there are provisions of both bills that i like but i think the bill needs work. >> become the party of roy moore and donald trump, we are toast.
4:08 am
ainsley: what is your reaction to that? senator flake is not running for reflection. he clearly doesn't support the president. then susan collins she has healthcare that she is concerned with in her state. >> i'm very happy that senator collins is coming forth now and expressing some of the ways she thinks that the bill-out the final bill can be improved, including leaving in some of those provisions from the house bill that she says she personally prefers. we prefer to have those conversations and those debates now than just have somebody show up and be a no vote. that's why the president himself went over to congress last week. that's why my colleagues and i are there nonstop out in the things out. bringing the case to the persoamerican people. taking their input and ideas and reflecting that in this bill. in the end, especially with people like senator johnson who is concerned about small businesses, it comes to -- explain to me what's in there for small businesses? 25% rate? the lowest tax rate on our moms and pops small businesses? i was an s corps for 22
4:09 am
years. you reinvest that money in your company. you buy better inventory, you pay benefits. you are able to attract and retain a workforce that's compensated well and compete with the big guys. the 17.4% deduction for small businesses, the 100 percent expensing for five years, these are all very attractive features to the folks who show up to work before dawn and go home long after dusk. brian: kellyanne conway, i watched the whole collins interview. she is absolutely gettable. she is getting her hands dirty in this. that is something about personal behavior and who she picked during the primaries. corker i also understand and ivanka and you were doing a lot of work to win over some of those others are doing some honest look into the packs plan they realize it's about the country, not about who is president. meanwhile, the president did weigh in and tweeted this out in regards to running back marshawn lynch of the raiders sitting down during the national anthem and standing you up during the
4:10 am
max can anthem he said this: how do you feel about the president weighing in here. >> the president has been consistent from the very beginning. look at what's happened to many of these teams. nfl viewership and attendance at these games. you know what? we have a saying in our house anyway, i think it's a pretty good one you take a knee for the lord and you stand for the flag. many americans agree with that and the president has been very consistent about this. and every president, look at the last one, they become involved in some of the cultural and social questions of the day. there is no way to avoid it and i think many americans agree with that. and, look, if you want to express your viewpoint and the average nfl players i understand it makes about 2 million a year that gentleman probably makes far higher. and far more. there are so many ways for you to get civically
4:11 am
involved. more than 5 seconds before a game. there are so many ways for you to participate and animate youth and engage them, the nfl has taken a big hit reputation wise. they are in a world of hurt. i'm glad the philadelphia eagles are 9-1 by the way. the fact is i hope roger goodell, the nfl, maybe they will work with us on big initiatives like combating the opioid epidemic and drug demand. that would be terrific. roger goodell has publicly said that he would like to, quote, move on from this. and i bet he would. he can call us. we can call him and say hey, can we get you involved in something all sports, something that's big that effects our youth as drug demand reduction. brian: players union doesn't. steve: kellyanne conway let me ask you about this, we had a union representative on friday last week representing ice officers who felt that the president had betrayed them in this new secretary for the department of homeland security, they liked general
4:12 am
kelly when he was there but now he is your chief of staff. and they feel like the new secretary kristin nelson is an obama era holdover a lawyer, little experience, didn't back president trump when he was running, backed jeb and wasn't really for the wall. so what are these people in this union who not feeling so good about the leadership there? what are they getting wrong? >> that was one person. i want -- i thought that was incredibly regrettable and error riddled interview. first of all, i serve with general kelly and serve with care can i citizen nielsen, everybody ought to learn how to pronounce it because she is going to be our deputy of homeland security and she dual a good job there she testified under oath how she feels about all of these issues. people can go and pull that testimony. she is strong. she's smart. i get a little tired of women having to doublely prove themselves but that's
4:13 am
okay. we're up to the task. and obviously we survive and thrive here. but, kirsten nielsen will be in the likeness of general kelly. those first six months on that job for general kelly, he worked on the travel ban, getting that wall built, and keeping our homeland secure. think of all the things that you are dealing with here. the ports, the border. we have 90% of our heroin comes through the southern border. we have poison coming over the border constantly. she's going to be -- that was, i thought that was a very regrettable interview. look at what happened last night with the border agent murdered and god rest his soul. it brings into sharp view how important it is to get ms. nielsen confirmed quickly. and there are many border agents, many. very happy this president under his leadership illegal border crossings are down. drugs being turned away. we have a lot of work to do. the fact is this president is committed to building that wall. we hope congress hears him. we have 70 point immigration plan anybody can pull up as

metropolitan atlanta. the georgia dome had stood for 25 years as you can see in its place the mercedes benz coliseum and that is a view from, we believe, one of the nearby billings looking down at where the dome was until 10 minutes ago. brian: now we have to bring you a story that i hope it disturbs you. because brooklyn college here in brooklyn, new york, is something that it's not in a bad area of brooklyn, it would necessarily challenge. it's always good to have law enforcement around unless, of course, you are the majority of the student body who is circulating a petition to not only not have the nypd on campus, they don't want them to be able to use the bathrooms. steve: yeah. this is a quote from somebody on campus. this is an unidentified student who spoke to the "new york post." they said we do not want the new york city police department on campus in any respect even if it's just to take breaks and use the
4:45 am
bathroom. i know students from every background and across every major, they don't feel comfortable around cops. they just don't. brian: unbelievable. steve: makes safe spaces feel not so safe. your first instinct is to be scared. what they are saying is they don't want the police officers on campus because it's triggering the students. so they have found a bathroom way out past the tennis courts out by one of the athletic fields. and the "new york post" went in to take a look at it the bathroom was broken. the toilet was broken. there was a out-of-order sign on the stall and only one of the sinks work. ainsley: it's a taxpayer funded campus. part of the system. i see the signs on the subway all the time send your kids to this school. we are paying for this school and they don't want cops there. steve: taxpayer funded. ainsley: why wouldn't they want -- they are worried about safety? they say they don't feel safe when they feel cops?

they will not be safe without the cops. brian: student paper called the excelsior. officials saying we are trying to keep law enforcement out of sight so they try to have a directive to either isolate them or keep them out of sight by using that bathroom on the side. ed mullins, who is head of the sergeant's unit says this. maybe it's time those students to fail to recognize the value of protecting them go take classes abroad where they can have their bathrooms all to themselves. this is so insulting. if this represents the next generation of americans, we're in a lot of trouble. steve: the student body president is quoted in the "new york post" is saying people don't like police officers at this particular college because the new york city police department had an undercover cop there with an operation. they were looking for terrorists and they arrested two women who are now on trial on charges they stockpiled tanks of propane gas for an isis inspired attack on new york city. remember that? they came -- they were

that people are talking about today is tax cuts. will the u.s. congress wind up with some sort of tax cut bill that the president of the united states could sign? there he is. he just kissed the tax form if the house plan went through. do it on something the size of a big postcard. brian: right. but now it's up to the senate to get it through. five or six holding out. but for the first part, no one's sitting back. they're saying i'm not ready yet, but i want to get to a "yes" for the most part. ainsley: all right. there's six holdoffs or six people with concerns that are republican senators. the republicans can only afford to lose two of those votes. so they've got to negotiate with at least four of those just to make sure their concerns are fixed that they're happy, and they're going to vote "yes." steve: yeah, susan colin has the big concerns not only about the affordable care individual mandate she wants it to stay in there. but she also wants -- she's concerned about the state and
5:04 am
local taxes. she doesn't want that to go away. she wants the bottom corporate wray at any rate not to go 20%, she wants it to be 22 or 23%, which is white house says is a nonstarter. and then you have jeff flake, who wrote the antitrump book that cake out about months ago. they sure don't sound like they're onboard with this. listen. >> president trump was not my choice for the republican nominee for president. i wanted to see changes in that bill, and i think there will be changes. there's some provisions of the house bill that i like better. there's provisions of both bills that i like, but i think the bill needs work. >> the party of roy moore and donald trump. brian: right. so you understand they were both talking about personal conduct. and allegations during the campaign. susan collins is actually talking about the plan. she likes most of it and one thing she did not like is the release of the mandate. but she did bring up the fact
5:05 am
if you tell people they don't have to buy insurance, that's actually going to help the working class more than anybody else, and she brought that up almost contradicting herself. so i think she's trying to work herself to a "yes," and i think it's also interesting that mcmulvaney said if people have problem with releasing the mandate on obamacare, we'll get rid of it if it stops passing. ainsley: they're worried about the debt. it's going to drive the debt up. you have ron johnson, saying it's unfair to small business. too much for the corporations. and then murkowski and collins, they don't want to repeal and replace obamacare, and then john mccain wants the military to get at least 700 billion for the fiscal year. steve: so ultimately you have these six republican senators who want big changes. but if they do make changes, that could alienate other republicans in the senate. we had kellyanne with us just about an hour ago. kellyanne conway the president's adviser. why is the president pushing the republicans right now? this is what she said.
5:06 am
>> we prefer to have those conversations and those debates now than just have somebody show up and be a no vote. that's why the president himself went over to congress last week. that's why my colleagues and i are there nonstop bringing the cake to the american people and taking in their inputs and their ideas and reflecting that in this bill. brian: so what they've got to do is they've got to deal with each other first. president trump has general things, four general outlines of what he wants in this plan. steve: uh-huh. brian: so i think that the senate is closer than they ever would with obamacare. the only person i haven't heard of because he's been injured because of the crazy thing that happened where he broke his ribs and bruised lung. i don't know where he stands on this because he's either a hard yes or a hard no. the others are looking to get to a "yes.," in fact, there's no doubt about it, ivanka came to see the senator. he's definitely trying to get, you know, get his hands

5:08 am
out. lynch stands for the mexico's anthem and sits down for our national anthem. next time should suspend him. attendance and ratings way down. we asked you whether or not you felt like you were feeling badly about football and whether or not you would be watching it this thanksgiving, and overwhelmingly according to our e-mail, a lot of you simply will not turn on the television and watch the nfl play football on turkey day. ainsley: that's right. you had walker who was supporting everyone who stands up. he supports the red, white, and blue and our troops, and he says this is a shame that these guys are kneeling or taking a knee or sitting on the bench during the national anthem. hats off to him for saying that. it's about the sacrifices that our military men and men are making. they're not home for christmas. these are millionaires kneeling on the sidelines. choose a different platform. choose a different time. brian: i also have a problem with the fact that they're protesting law enforcement. i think most of the time does

steve: the trump administration warning 29 sanctuary cities and states to comply with federal immigration laws by december the 8th or risk losing some federal money. attorney general jeff sessions
5:18 am
said quote jurisdictions also adopt the view that protection of criminal animals is more important than the protection of law-abiding citizens and the rule of law. joining us right now to discuss is the director of research for the center for immigration studies steven joins us from our nation's capital. steven, good morning. >> good morning. steve: okay. you're saying yep. it's about time. glad to hear it; right? >> absolutely. remind your listeners what's happening here. someone beats their wife, they're arrested for drunk driving, and they're in jail, and identified as illegal immigrants when their if the plaintiff got in and said to the jurisdiction please hold them, we'll be there in 48 hours. and the jurisdiction as a matter of policy purposefully releases that person and what the attorney general is saying is, look, you can't do that and expect to get all of this federal money obviously, it's the kind of lawlessness. steve: so ultimately, where
5:19 am
did this start initially where the, you know, it's been big in new york and los angeles for quite a while, and it is spread where people in these jurisdictions say that's the rule of law. we don't like it, so we're not going to follow it. >> right. so it proliferated under obama, but it has been growing for a long time, and there are has been some court rulings at the local level. never higher up. that have basically said, well, you may not be able to hold people without an actual warrant. even though federal law says that when the immigration service asks you to hold someone, that is sufficient to do it. some judges have said, well, maybe not. but it doesn't really affect most jurisdictions and, in fact, most jurisdictions do cooperate. these are the real outliers that don't cooperate. steve: but here's the thing. they understand that if they want the money, they've got to follow the rules. and now they're fighting back saying, look, war not following the rules, but we still want the money.
5:20 am
>> exactly. and, unfortunately, in philosophy a judge said, well, they aren't technically violating the law, so they still have to get the money. now, we'll see what happens on appeal and things like that. but it does seem obvious that they are violating the law because federal law, remember, says you can't do things like with hold information. but they're trying to get away with it. steve: and ultimately i think the people, the law-abiding citizens in those communities that are sanctuary cities, i think they would like to see the law as followed. but that's just my point of view. steven, we thank you very much for joining us live today. >> thanks for having me. steve: it is now 8:20 has toker in new york city. it has been nearly three years since new york police officers lou and roemer was murdered while sitting in their patrol car. officer ramos joins us to celebrate his life and the birth of a new life. that's coming up whoooo.

tribes have no problem with it. ainsley. ainsley: thanks so much, brian. on december 20th, 2014 almost three years ago, two nypd officers were ambushed and killed in brooklyn. officer ramos and lou shot at point-blank range killed while sitting in their patrol car, left behind his wife of only three months. now almost three years later, officer lou's widow joins us to reflect on her late husband's life and to celebrate the birth of their new child. joining me now goes by i sanny, her baby and ceo of tunnel to towers foundation. many of you have given to this organization, and it helps this family in a mighty way. now, tell us what happened on that day. what that day was like, and
5:26 am
then we'll talk about your baby. >> this day was like the hardest of my life after i heard that he was in accident and was in the hospital. and it felt like the end of the world. i was sitting there, and i -- it was almost whenever would that night, all i felt like his spirit was calling that he wants a baby. ainsley: his spirit was calling that he wants a baby. he came over to the dream, and he handed me over a baby girl, so i said okay. i'll talk it. ainsley: you talked to his doctors and said what. >> i spoke to my friends and said i'm going to have a baby girl. and after almost three years, i'm going to have a baby girl now. ainsley: that's amazing. so through medical intervention, the doctors were able to save a part of your husband and then years later,
5:27 am
you decided decided you're ready to have his baby, and your baby girl was born. >> on july 25th. ainsley: and you named her angelina why? >> because she's my angel from heaven, and it's a gift god has given me to have for the rest of my life and also make my life meaningful now. ainsley: was it the best day of your life when she was born. >> best day of my life. ainsley: she's absolutely beautiful. is she sleeping through the night? >> yes. she's such a great baby. ainsley: such a good baby. frank, you started the organization because your brother died on 9/11, unfortunately. but you turned lemons into lemonade with this organization helping other families. what did you do with the lou family. >> well, it's not what we did, but it's what the community did. we related together and made sure that her house and detective ramos' house were paid off, their mortgages were paid off. but it goes far beyond that because she has become part of our family, the fabric of our
5:28 am
foundation to show there's hope afterwards. that something bad can happen and miracles can happen afterwards. and here, you're looking at one. here's something that she's in the hospital, told the doctor save his sperm, has a baby how many years later? you tell me there aren't miracles in this world, and you're looking at one right now. and this is all about our foundation that we tried to tell people there's hope that you can go on with your life. as bad as it is and as sad as it is, there is hope for you out there. and they're certainly an example of that. ainsley: what's the lesson you learned? because he lost his brother and because of that, that terrible day for all americans, he's turned -- he started this organization, and that's blessing your life and what a terrible daily you had. but how wonderful it was to have your daughter and now have a mortgage-free home. >> i'm fortunate that i have
5:29 am
the great support from my family. and this foundation is putting people together, put us together. we can go through everything. ainsley: and see your husband. >> yeah. every time i pick her up, and she smiles like my husband, looks like him. i just feel he always -- ainsley: can i hold her? >> yes. ainsley: i love babies. oh, my gosh. cherish every single second because they grow up so fast, don't they, frank? >> yes. like my grandchildren. ainsley: that's better than having betters. i can't imagine that. >> it is. it's a miracle. ainsley: what do you want her to know about your husband and what do you want us to know? >> i want her to know that her father was a hero and one who learned value of life and for all the law enforcement because her family made a
5:30 am
sacrifice. ainsley: what do you want us to know about your brother, frank? >> the same thing. he sacrificed his life and had five beautiful children himself, and he left behind some legacy. it's incredible how you can turn sadness into joy, and i think we're looking at it right here today. thank you to your fox viewers. they help us so much on so many things. ainsley: you are precious. god has big plans for your life, little girl. you definitely a miracle. there you go. thank you so much. we'll be right back what a great thanksgiving message here's the story of green mountain coffee roasters sumatra reserve told in the time it takes to brew your cup. let's go to sumatra. where's sumatra? good question. this is win. and that's win's goat, adi. the coffee here is amazing. because the volcanic soil is amazing. making the coffee erupt with flavor. so we give farmers like win more plants. to grow more delicious coffee. that erupts with even more flavor. which helps provide for win's family. and adi the goat's family too. because his kids eat a lot. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee.

green mountain coffee roasters. packed with goodness.

5:33 am
>> come the party of roy moore and donald trump. we are toast. steve: okay. there you've got senator jeff flake from the great state of arizona caught on a mic. let's bring in florida senator
5:34 am
marco rubio joining us from down in miami. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: what do you think of jeff flake saying that? you know, if we become the party of roy moore and donald trump, we're toast? >> well, first, those are two different people. steve: they are. >> and second of all, obviously jeff feels very strongly, and i think he's made his feelings known. i don't think he's said anything on a hot mic that he hasn't implied or said directly in his speeches. look, i think we have a fundamental challenge and understanding how to bring the party together for the future. and part of it has to be one of the things that donald trump really woke up in his campaign, and that is addressing working people across this country. some of the press like to say white working class. it's working class of all backgrounds who feel like they've been ignored and disrespected by leaders in both parties for the better part of 25 or 30 years. i mean, these are the people who make too much money to qualify for government
5:35 am
assistance but not enough to afford the things that modern life require of us. and they feel disrespected in their values and the result is they've got angry. we have to be a voice for them and at the same time stand by our free government and strong national defense. so that's the party we need to be working towards and in that coalition, there's room for a lot of different views and a lot of different people. but one of the most important things we have to confront in tax reform is what are we going to do for the working people in this country? because there's a lot going on there for companies and multinationals and hopefully for small businesses. and none of that is bad. but we also have to take care of working people that are making 40, 50, $60,000 a year and struggling with their families and so forth. brian: we'll finish up on tax reform and come back to this. but just on this right now,
5:36 am
what do you see your responsibility having to get a vote passed? >> well, i'm looking for the child tax credit, and it's not a welfare plan if people don't accuse it of. if you're not working, you don't get it. their sole tax liability is payroll tax. i want to make this up to the amount of payroll tax. so if somebody is making 35 or $40,000 a year, for example, a single mother who's working as a home health aid trying to raise three kids, if it's not refundable, then she's not really going to see much of an increase crest in her tax cut, which she needs to raise her family. now, again, she doesn't get it unless she's working and she can only get up to the amount she paid in payroll tax. but we need to encourage work. we cannot be a country where you're better off not working and having three kids because of the government programs than a country where for 35,000 or $40,000 a year, you end up losing money. the part isn't in there now.
5:37 am
it has to be in there for this to be truly effective. we need to reward work, and we need to take care of people that are working really hard and trying to get ahead to keep more of their own money as opposed to sending it to washington so washington can send it on their behalf. >> that's great. i have friends that say they want to work, but it doesn't pay off because when you pay for child care for the kids, they're spending more on child care than they are getting in their paycheck. what do you think of the folks in florida? what do you think they think of senator flake and their comments? do you think they care? do you think they still support the president? what do you hear? >> i respect jeff, and he's a friend of mine, and we work together on a lot of issues, and he's truly a principle conservative guy. this is the stuff they focus on in new york studios every morning. but people this morning got up and went to work, and i think a lot of people feel like what's going on in washington is just being exaggerated.
5:38 am
they may not agree with every tweet the president puts out, but they also see how everything he does elicits this overelection on part of the media, and it seems we've become a country where everybody wakes up in the morning and tries to figure out what i should be outraged about today. steve: but, senator, that you know you've got a sitting senator from arizona who has taken a shot at the man who is the leader of the party, that is news. let me tax cut question this way. to borrow jeff flake's expression. if the republicans in the congress don't pass some sort of tax reform, you are toast, aren't you? >> well, i think we have to pass something because that's what we ran on. look, this is the party of people like myself and others who ran saying if you elect us, we're going to do everything we can to repeal and replace obamacare. that has not happened yet. we're going to fix the tax code. if that doesn't happen. and third thing is we're going to rebuild our national security, and we're going to deal with some of the issues
5:39 am
like regulations. now, on the regulatory front, progress has been made. i think people will be very pleased with how we're now starting to work through a lot of the judges, the judiciary, the third branch of government, getting people in there understand that the proper role of the courts. brian: got nine of them in. >> more than nine now. we keep rolling through these district and circuit court judges. so by the end of the year, we will have made a substantial did he know the by good jurists who have been there 20, 30 years, but i do think tax reform is important. not just for the republican party. elections come and go for the country. we need to be a country where our economy is growing again and not just creating jobs but jobs that pay more. and i would say if we don't get tax reform done, then those out there who are looking to invest or grow their businesses are going to can lose confidence, and that loss of confidence will lead to less job creation, less economic growth, and it's not the republicans that are going to pay a price, it's the american people that are going to pay a price through slower
5:40 am
economy. that's the main reason. brian: are you surprised that senator al franken will not resign after these pictures have come out? >> well, obviously, i think that's going to be taken up by the ethics committee, and i'll let them go through the process. i share everyone else's view on it, and that's unacceptable. and clearly i think something that has outraged a lot of people. but they're going to have an ethicals committee investigation. i know democrats have called for it. and we'll wait and learn more details. and based on that, we'll see where the road leads on this thing isn't that but it's not like have said things to a girl. >> and i don't think she has denied his behavior. now the question is what are the consequences for it? and, you know, sometimes people make decisions on what they want to do moving forward after thinking about it for a few days or a few weeks than talking about it with their family. no, i have insight on what he's going to decide to do. but i do know the ethics committee is going to take this up and that process could
5:41 am
potentially reveal more or not. we'll see. and i would like to let that work through because we may learn more about this which actually may make it worse. i don't think you can make it better. brian: roy moore staying in, doubling down the alleged 14-year-old was out on another network in detail talking about what happened. are you urging jeff sessions for his job back? >> well, i don't know about the jeff sessions part because i think he's happy about being attorney general. i think those charges are serious, i think these accusers are credible, and i don't think, quite frankly, that judge moore has done anything in the last ten days that has helped this cause or in any way lowered the anxiety that's out there about it. and my view, and i've said this before, i think we're going to learn even more as this goes on and even if he's elected to the senate, i think there's going to be a process that many people in the senate are calling for that could reveal more and be potentially problematic for him and, in fact, i guarantee it would be,
5:42 am
given the nature of these charges. but i don't think he has said or done anything in the last ten days that's either convincing or helpful, and i think his accusers have outlined very detailed allegations that seem very credible and are very serious. steve: all right. senator from the great state of florida, marco rubio, we thank you very much for joining us on your monday of the holiday week. thank you, sir. ainsley: thank you, senator. >> thanks for having me on. brian: indeed. 18 minutes before the top of the hour. fox news alert, join the manhunt for a serial killer. can cops find him before he strikes again? we're live on the ground. more people shop online for the holidays than ever before.

surveillance video, i'm looking at the demeanor of the person in that video to see if he matches the description. now, remember, we had october 9th video, and we have the november the 14th video. and we're trying to make sure that is the actual, same person that's committing these four murders, brian. brian: yeah, these murders happened within a mile of each other. anything else you can pick up in a pattern to find out who this guy is? >> yeah. well, not only -- well, we know that these murders happened in the area of a bus stop. so they're looking closely at bus stops. they're looking for a break and a mistake in this case. they're looking for the public's help. that's going to help tremendously. steve: yeah, somebody could look at that video and figure out who it is. thank you very much for joining us from tampa.
