6:00 am
contest. >> we are down to it. three, two, one. who is winner? >> right here. >> i think both of you are. >> everyone is on winter here. >> see you tomorrow. >> bill: good morning everyon everyone. president trump goes to north carolina for a campaign rally today after house democrats vote to condemn his attacks on four progressive lawmakers. they are firing back. good morning. it's wednesday. i'm bill hemmer live in new york city. we've got a good show for you today. what do you have on your hotdog? >> sandra: bill, i'm from chicago. chicago style dog. everything is on it. wrigley field. best place to have a hot dog. we will leave it there. i am sandra smith. congressman doug collins challenging nancy pelosi over her use of the word "racist" over the president's comments,
6:01 am
claiming that violates house rules. >> every single member of this institution, democratic and republican, should join us in condemning th the presidents rat tweets. anything else is a shameful evocation of our oath of office to protect the american people. i urge a unanimous vote. >> how -- which she like to rephrase that, in? >> i have declared my remarks. >> i make a point of order. those words are on parliamentary. >> bill: i went from there. meanwhile, the so-called squad and their house with the speaker, warning about singling them out. here's what they said on cbs. >> are you speaking to nancy pelosi? >> our teams are in communication. >> but shouldn't it be face to
6:02 am
face? >> i agree. >> she is the new member, not the speaker. >> we can sit down with her at any moment. she is speaker of the house of your cheek and asked for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification. >> sandra: wow. we are live in washington with more on this. >> good morning sandra and bill. they join democrats on tuesday, voting to condemn president trump over remarks that he made over for members of congress. nancy pelosi labeled the comments as racist. they later ruled that her words violated house rules on decorum. the hearing from the house members. the president has been treating and talking about. here's more of what they had to save on cbs. >> i am dealing with the biggest bully i have ever had to deal with in my lifetime. >> he is only occupying space. he does not embody the
6:03 am
principles, the responsibilities, the grace, the integrity of a true president. >> this week, democrats are also expected to weigh in on an impeachment resolution brought by al green. democrats may decide to table the idea for an hour send it to a committee. they've got a few options here. congressman greene has introduced impeachment resolutions before. we expect to hear a lot more from the president and a whole lot more when he is at a campaign rally tonight happening in greenville, north carolina. >> sandra: or we could hear from him a whole lot sooner than that. we will be watching the twitter feed. today, preparing once again to reprimand the trump administration. this time, the focus on commerce secretary wilbur ross. >> that's right. the house is expected to vote to hold wilbur ross and bill barr in contempt. this all has to do with the recent fight over the senses. they demanded documents from both of them about the
6:04 am
administration to out a citizenship question to the 20/20 census. democrats say that the administration refused to comply with -- he has been tweeting so far this morning, writing in part "so much opportunity, yet all they want to do is go fishing, talking about the witch hunt there. however, even if the house approves the criminal contempt citation, some see it only as a symbolic move because it is unlikely the justice department would pursue." >> sandra: thank you. we will have more reaction, by the way, to all of this. iben carson will be joining us this morning. he will be our headliner. newt gingrich is also on the lineup. he will join us up 11:00 eastern time, just a couple of hours from now. >> bill: in the meantime, the chaos that we saw on the house
6:05 am
floor, forcing the white house to call a meeting after the senior trump advisor, jared kushner, now putting forward a new -- >> allowing the best and the brightest to come throughout the world to compete based on a judges criteria to become american citizens. this bill also creates the gold standard. a lot of input from politicians. security professionals. >> bill: here we go at the starting point. senator ron johnson, good morning to you. about to hold a roundtable. what can you tell us about the policy that you think would be effective? >> good morning, bill. we do need to change our laws, primarily we need to change that initial hurdle race on asylum claims. best estimate is only about 50%
6:06 am
of people coming in from central america actually have a valid claim. and yet over the last five years and nine months, 1,086,000 people have come in as part of the family unit. we have only removed 5,021. about 1% of the people coming as a family unit. that is a huge incentive. people realize that if they come in here, on a company child or part of a family, bringing a child with them, they will be basically waived into the united states, they can meld into the united states. they will never have a day in court, and they will be able to stay at in america long term. 495,000, almost half of that 1 million have come in illegally. so the problem is growing. it is out of control. it's overwhelming. >> bill: how much buying and is there to the idea in congre congress?
6:07 am
>> i haven't heard a democrat say that this is a manufactured crisis anna matter of months. it is so overwhelming. i am hoping to have a signed letter for a pilot program that we have been working on. we call it "operation safe return." basically making the adjudication process very efficient. rapidly and more accurately determine those who don't have a good claim. return them to their home country. hopefully we will have bipartisan support as a strong signal to the human traffickers to say that we are not going to allow human traffickers to exploit our laws any longer. we start changing them, and really a plea to central americans, don't mortgage your home, don't give these traffickers, don't indict yourself to these people. some of the most evil people on this planet. you will suffer abuse. come into america if you have a valid claim the legal way. not using human smugglers. >> bill: we will see how far
6:08 am
it gets. while i have you here, i don't know how much members of congress are paying attention to this. getting a lot of attention in the media. here is the squad. >> we can talk about and spin out about hateful words, which are predictable prompt by the occupants of this white house. >> the presence of the united states, the occupant. >> he is only taking up space. he does not embody the principles, the responsibilities, the grace, the integrity of a true president. >> bill: that was this morning. rashida tlaib said that they acknowledge the fact that we are women of color, so when you do single us out, be aware of that. some of us are getting death threats. senator, i don't know how this is reverberating through the halls, but what is your sense? >> from my standpoint, i'm
6:09 am
trying to address these serious issues facing the nation if not for the overwhelming news coverage of this, i would be not paying attention to them whatsoever. i do think that they represent an extreme part of the democratic party, but i am highly concerned that the growing socialism within the democratic party. that is what quite honestly gives president trump the best chance of reelection. when the american people start taking a look at things like the green new deal, the tens of trillions of dollars that that would cost. medicare for all, as well as all private health insurance, they are not going to particularly like those types of proposals by the radical left. the growing socialist in the democratic party. >> thank you for your time. ron johnson. sounds like you're campaigning already. something you're very used to there in washington. we will check out the roundtable later on today. at least 25 senators. high hurdle, but the initial steps must be taken, and that is what this immigration proposal
6:10 am
is about. >> sandra: very interesting reaction from the senator on all of that. meanwhile, the notorious drug lord, known as el chapo, will be sentenced for his crimes. jurors found him guilty of murder, conspiracy, and drug trafficking earlier this year. bananas is live this morning. good morning. >> he will be sentenced to life in prison at the very least a day. that is the mandatory sentence that he must give el chapo by law, based on the severity of his crimes. whether or not he will speak in court. his lawyers anticipate that he will, and if he does, what will he say? will he apologize? will he claim his innocence? they say that they suspect he will be transferred to a super max prison in colorado. america's most secure prison facility.
6:11 am
remember, he successfully escaped prison twice in mexico through an underground tunnel. before today's sentencing hearing, his defense ask the judge for a new trial, claiming jurors were tainted. a juror told vice news that seven jurors had heard about news coverage that he raped 13-year-old girls, but the judge ultimately denied the request for a new trial. now they say they're going to appeal. >> i am very disappointed. i think we should at least hold a hearing on it. i am sure he would get a new trial. definitely. >> prosecutors suggest el chapo be sentenced to life plus 30 years. at least one of his victims will make us victim impact statement today about how they survived one of his murder plots. the government is also demanding that el chapo pay back all of the profits that he made
6:12 am
trafficking drugs like cocaine. the total bill -- $12 billion. the defense is that they may have asked for $100 billion. he doesn't have any of that money. >> sandra: bryan llenas, thank you. >> bill: now, a major round up of ms-13 gang members. nearly two dozen suspects. they are accused of are so brutal, authorities described them as medieval. >> sandra: president trump set to travel to north carolina for a rally later today. will this war of words have an impact on the race for the white house? rnc chairwoman ronna mcdaniel will join us later on that. >> bill: bob mueller's testimony is a week from today, we believe. will the delay tactics work for them or against them? >> jerry nadler so that this would happen to end a half months ago. we will see. we have questions for him.
6:13 am
we look forward to it. we will see how it goes. when you're not able to smile, you become closed off. i felt withdrawn, alone... having to live with bad teeth for so long was extremely depressing. now, i know how happy i am. there was all the feeling good about myself that i missed. i wish that i had gone to aspen dental on day one and not waited three years. at aspen dental, we're all about yes. like yes to flexible hours and payment options. yes to free exams and x-rays for new patients without insurance. and yes, whenever you're ready to get started, we are too. call now at 1-800-aspendental.

get the lowest price guaranteed on all choice hotels when you book direct at >> this resolution to hold attorney general barr and secretary wilbur ross in contempt of congress is necessary to preserve the integrity of this body and of the united states census. >> bill: we believe that is going forward today. defending a criminal contempt vote against the ag, bill barr and commerce secretary wilbur ross. the house expected to take action at some time today. sol wisenberg, former whitewater deputy independent counsel. good morning. i don't know what happens after criminal contempt. what comes of this? >> do you really think ag barr is going to authorize this?
6:17 am
i don't think that is going to happen anymore than that doj eric holder was going to authorize prosecuting him for contempt. keep in mind that there are two different offices of legal counsel opinions under two different administrations. democratic and republican that have held that you cannot apply the criminal contempt statute to an executive officer claiming executive privilege on behalf of the president. that is 1984 under reagan. 1995 under clinton. i don't understand why they didn't go for civil contempt. civil contempt, you can go and get a declaratory judge. why don't they do that? it would be easier for them. why? because i think they are afraid they are going to lose. they don't want to spend the time to litigate that. this is a really political point they are making by saying you're a criminal. >> bill: you are saying it has no feet, but they will do it
6:18 am
anyway. because they will do it because it looks good to say we are holding you in criminal contempt, but in substance, it is meaningless. >> bill: how you been listening to the calls for impeachment? here is ken starr on where that issue is. >> we are in a stage in our history where impeachment is becoming the tool of first resort as opposed to last resort. my thought, you and i know, that is not what the founding generation wanted, not what they intended. we need to bring this back and have a debate. but let's put the impeachment talk aside. >> bill: so my sense is that there are 60 or 70 democrats who support it. that word was dropped a lot at the press conference on monday. does nancy pelosi fight back on this? does it go anywhere? >> i think she's not going to let it happen because she could
6:19 am
have done a lot of things in the last 12 months to bring it along, and she hasn't done so, so i think -- and a lot of it has to do with not litigating some of these issues in the courts, which could have set up an impeachment vote. i don't think she's going to do it because she believes that it would be politically damaging. i certainly think -- now you can make a case that -- you can certainly make a case that impeachment, that an inquiry should begin if you look at all of the things that the president has done. i'm not saying that i agree with that, but you can make on nonprivileged case. the tipping point would be his tweet. it strikes me as a constitutional matter. very weak. >> bill: a week from today is mueller day. it was supposed to be today. that was punted for a week. do you think it happens? >> i think it's going to happen. i don't think it will have much effect, but the problem again here with the democratic members of the house, the president is
6:20 am
not letting people like don mcgahn -- people who are actually witnesses to his conduct, come and testify. that would be the dramatic testimony that we have an watergate. having witness like a john dean or bob haldeman. that would be something that could move the needle on the impeachment questions, but he's not letting them do that. but again, bill, the minute they take over the house, they could have subpoenaed don mcgahn, and when he said i'm not going to come, they could have served it up, it could have been well along in litigation already, and they didn't do it, and i don't understand that. i just don't. >> bill: so you believe that, and you believe no effect at the end of the day. we shall see. thanks for coming on. sol wisenberg. thank you. >> sandra: it was a scary sight for some beachgoers after a plane makes an emergency landing in the ocean.
6:21 am
more of this shocking video next. new developments on north korea. is there a rogue regime ready to start missile testing again? >> now they are interested -- the relationship is very good. i think we have made tremendous progress on north korea. again, time is not of the essence, but i think that good things will ultimately happen. this is the couple who wanted to get away

6:26 am
they believe that the suspects are behind nearly 200 crimes over nine years, and some of those murders include hacking people to death. los angeles u.s. attorney says solving the murder case is a severe blow to the gang members who took part in the brutal gang violence. they released photos found on the suspects phones, showing them up with machetes, guns, and showing gang signs. the 78 page indictment in this case provides gruesome details, including that six of the killings involved gang members trying to move up in the gang's ranks or gain entry. prosecutor suck suspect that the victims whose heart was cut out was a rival gang member. >> he was abducted, choked, driven to a remote location in the national forest, where it the six defendants hacked him to death. >> prosecutors say that they

that can lead to a sell-off. we will see. that is the question right now. all right, president trump meanwhile heading for north carolina later today after a few years back and with those for progressive congresswomen. footing to condemn the attacks on them. one democrat introduces articles of impeachment. all the chaos last night. >> the democrats are going to stop here they are so focused on going after this president, so focused on actually getting to impeachment, that they will not stop at anything, even if it means breaking the rules on the house floor, where there is a certain level of decorum that you must maintain. they are solely focused on doing whatever they can to stop this president instead of working on what can help the country. >> sandra: let's bring in ronna mcdaniel. a good morning. nice to see you. i am sure you are watching this
6:33 am
back and forth, and you're in the middle of it. do you wish this hadn't happened, or is this a strategy that is working for the president? >> i think any time the president can call at members of congress who are saying "abolish i.c.e.," comparing our men and women who serve on the border to nazis, equating america to al qaeda, some of the things that have come out of the mouths of these four congresswomen is offensive, and, anti-american, and the president is saying listen, i love our country. we should all of our country if you let's work together to make lives better for americans, and he's going to do that every single day feud he's going to north carolina, where he gets to say sense i have been present, we have added jobs. wages are out, jobs are coming back to this country, unemployment is low. they are going to canyon to
6:34 am
double down on divisive rhetoric, and he is going to talk about how we are making america great again. >> sandra: it was within the democratic party. those four democratic congresswomen were having at it with nancy pelosi, and then the president tweeted this, and the conversation then became about him. and then it was these democrats against the president, and it was no longer this feud with nancy pelosi and members of her own party. >> the democratic party is now a socialist party. these women have become the de facto speakers of the democratic house. that's the facts. he saying do you want socialism, or do you want what we are delivering? more jobs, strong economy. it is a very clear choice. nancy pelosi, with what she did yesterday, said i am going to bring votes to the floor that will divide our country, but i'm not going to pass usmca that will bring more manufacturing jobs. i'm not going to get anything
6:35 am
done that will help the american people on a policy level, but i will double down on division, which they have done since day one. by the way, 80 times democrats voted no for humanitarian aid for the border. 80 times democrats have voted no, so they can talk all they want. they are not getting anything done except they are ongoing never ending temper tantrum and war against president trump. >> sandra: they appeared in an interview on cbs this morning, and they were asked very specifically about meeting with nancy pelosi and how this goes forward. here is some of that. >> just as there were members of congress that did not vote for the speaker on the house for the day of our swearing and, just as there are members who challenge her conclusion, to disagree wit. so do we from time to time, but that does not mean that there is a fundamental fracture or dehumanizing --
6:36 am
>> is she, according to you, being disrespectful to women of color because of your color or because she doesn't like your policies or the tactics that you all are taking? taking? speak up i clarify. i did not say that she was disrespectful of women of color. i found some of the comments disrespectful, and that was my personal opinion. i did feel that singling out on the basis of one vote was creating an opening. but that doesn't mean that we fundamentally disagree. >> sandra: what was your take away from? >> well, i think they're trying to sugarcoat division within their party, but make no mistake, the leaders of the democratic party are now aoc and these other freshman congresswomen who are pushing a radical progressive agenda that will totally reshape the united states of america, and we are going to fight it in every
6:37 am
state. the president assad america will never be a socialist nation, -- >> sandra: we will wait to see what we hear from him later today. the approval rating among women is down, and the trump campaign is watching this initiative to court female voters. how do you do it? how do you win over the female vote? >> we had thousands of women showing up, probably more than any democratic candidate showing up for this rally. lesson. women right now can't vote, but they can vote with their pocketbook. over 50% of the donations are coming from women. more than any other democratic. women do care about health care. they care about the economy, and they know that under this president, things are getting down at every single level.
6:38 am
they care about our military, our veterans. we are whole issue voters, and when the president goes to them in november of 2020, and he says are you better off than you were four years ago? women are going to look at their lives and say yes i am, and vote for him. >> sandra: i want to know more about those campaign fund-raising numbers. you hear from some women, and i know you heard this, even among the president's supporters, female supporters, some question his rhetoric. and with some time, that he didn't tweet the things that he did, and i just wonder if he is going to change any of that. >> the president has delivered. he made promises on the campaign trail, and now he can go back to women voters, voters of every ethnicity, and say iran on these things, and guess what? unemployment is at an all-time
6:39 am
low. this is the thing that is disconcerting about the media. they want to focus on the tweeting on the rhetoric, but american voters are interested in the policy and how it is affecting their lives. americans across this country realize that their countrie live better, and that is because of president trump. they know that the democrats have delivered a big, giant goose egg. >> sandra: the headlines are out there. g.o.p. mega donors pouring money into his campaign, record shattering fund-raising numbers. final thoughts? >> we are raising record dollars, the enthusiasm is at an all-time high, and we are going to see it again in north carolina when the president goes to this rally. >> sandra: ronna mcdaniel, thank you. >> bill: breaking now, wanted by the u.s., he has been arrested in pakistan.

6:43 am
did you know congress is working to end surprise medical billing? that's when patients are hit with medical bills they thought would be covered by insurance. the problem is big insurance companies want a one-size-fits-all approach that lets them decide what they'll pay doctors for yocare. letting insurance companies decide means it could be harder for you to see the best doctors when you need them the most. tell congress, "end surprise billing, and don't let insurance companies put profits over patients. paid for by physicians for fair coverage.

6:46 am
there is a lot of crosstalk publicly. what do you think is at play here? >> the first key point that i would make is that this administration has showed extraordinary restraint in the face of black male and shooting down our drone, using their proxy militants to launch attacks, including against that has enabled us -- that very flawed iranian nuclear deal, the nature of the iranian threat, but some space domestically, where we can bring democrats and republicans together. which is essential to achieving a new deal, and then lastly, messaging iran, making it clear that the sanctions are going to continue. showing restraint, but we want to get back to the negotiating table. >> bill: that is pretty clear. here is mike pompeo on a potential deal. >> we continue to execute, we

can negotiate a deal that will prevent iran from getting out nuclear weapon. >> bill: i don't know if the iranians would agree with that, but you believe that both sides can negotiate. >> neither side wants war. certainly iran doesn't appear that would be regime suicide. there are two ways to negotiate. back channel discussions between the united states and iran, which reportedly has taken place. where we discussed negotiatin negotiating -- and then secondly, perhaps the requirement for the united states, issuing clear rules of engagement so that iran understands where the red lines are. their aggressive attacks against our people and those against our allies. >> bill: they would like to talk. we will see what happens. quickly on north korea, i just want to play this. there is a key line about the president not being in a rush.
6:48 am
>> at some point, i am in absolutely no hurry, but at some point, i think we can probably do something that would be very good for them and for everybody and of the world. >> bill: i have heard him say this repeatedly. why do you think that is important? >> i have always felt going back to before the singapore summit that we shouldn't be in such a hurry. this is a wickedly difficult challenge for us, brought about by decades of failed diplomacy on our part. and of course on the part of the north koreans. complete and full denuclearization is really often in the future here. what we are trying to do is impose these crippling sanctions. they are a brutal regime. they terrorize their own citizens. they have a massive level of weapons of mass destruction. biological and chemical weapons, so it is a great challenge for us, but again, we are showing great restraint as we try to pursue these negotiations.
6:49 am
the plan -- >> bill: wicked challenge. it to borrow a phrase from you. if the u.s. and south korea are conducting military exercises, we know that the north does not like it. do you think kim would go there? >> it is important to highlight the fact that we have canceled the most high-level military exercises. the ones that are coming up next month are significantly reduced. i think kim jong un is just looking to blame us for the failures of his own economy. there was a report today that half of the north korean population is under nourished. it does portray the united states as their enemy and up blame us for their economic problems. and again, kim jong un is also negotiating to negotiate? he's in a tough place, and he wants us to be out of the peninsula. that is probably part of his
6:50 am
strategy. >> bill: interesting stuff. significant yet again today. we will see you, sir. >> thanks, have a good morning. >> sandra: the head of planned parenthood saying she was fired in a secret meeting after less than a year on the draw appeared was she let go because she was focused more on women's health than on politics? the a-team is here to take that on. >> bill: more businesses just like them. we will have a look. >> i don't have a choice but to increase prices. i just hope that the public still rewards us for giving good service and having good food. no matter what i wore, i worried someone might see

spacecraft, honoring the 50th anniversary of the launch. neil armstrong and buzz aldrin would become the first to walk on the moon about four days later. the display will appear for two hours, every night, leading up to the 20th, which is saturday. cool. >> sandra: the houses set this week for so to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2024. although it is unlikely to pass in the senate, it has become a rallying cry for democrats. a seattle-based restaurant chain declares bankruptcy, citing the increase in minimum wage as one reason for that. we are live in seattle with th that. >> good morning, sandra. this is 1 of 35 restaurants owned by restaurants unlimited, filing chapter 11 bankruptcy. most of those are along the west coast, where minimum wage is high, $16 an hour here in
6:55 am
seattle. it is one reason why they are declaring bankruptcy. "the company's profitability have been significantly impacted by progressive wage loss. the result by an aggregate of $10.6 million. the restaurants raised menu prices and even added a surcharge but still lost money. that wasn't enough. >> i think what restaurants unlimited found out is that they can't have the full impact of that for their customers through higher prices. people can stay home, eat out less often. >> nearly all of the democrats running for president in 2020 have come out in favor of raising the federal minimum wage. it has been at $7.25 for ten years. they just issued their report on $15 per hour and said that
6:56 am
$17 millio17 million people woue lifted out of poverty, but there would be a big price. they would lose their jobs those companies got more efficient. 29 states right now have laws that have their minimum wage set up of the federal minimum wage. >> sandra: dan springer in seattle on that. thank you. >> bill: more from the four progressive democrats today, firing back at the present, also hitting nancy pelosi, the speaker. they also had some choice words. about speaker pelosi. the a-team ways and on that. plus, ben carson is our headliner. he is coming up shortly. come on back. was an instant sad i should have changed a long time ago. we're the tenney's and we're usaa members for life. call usaa to start saving on insurance today. and we're usaa members for life. when crabe stronger...strong, with new nicorette coated ice mint.

7:01 am
united states. >> this is a distraction. this is a disruption on our leading and legislative and governing. a consequence of the american people. i am dealing with the biggest bully i have ever had to do in my lifetime, trying to push back on this and trying to do the job that we have to do. >> bill: on cbs today. we are now live on the hill. good morning. >> good morning, bill. the tweets considered racist by many are officially labeled as such in the congressional record. the democratic led house voting to approve a resolution condemning "the president's racist comments directed at members of congress." here is some of what happen. >> every single member of this institution, democratic and republican, should join us in condemning the president's racist tweets. >> i would ask if she would like to rephrase that, in. >> i have cleared my remarks as
7:02 am
parliamentary before i read them. >> those comments were reviewed for about an hour. delivering a ruling that pelosi's words were not in order. for a while, the speaker of the house was not technically allowed to speak on the floor. democrats voted to strike the words from the congressional record, all of it making an extraordinary vote even more unusual. in the end, 240 members voted in favor of the nonbinding resolutions. for republicans and one former republican. siding with democrats. the president claims he does not have a racist bone in his body, and all of this is a democratic con game. you heard from the squad just earlier. all four of them disagree with that. this fight is certainly not over. he hinted on twitter today that this is something these people will continue to talk about. he has said that the focus he
7:03 am
has here is criticizing them is anti-american. they say no, it is blatantly racist in their view. he will talk about people who love america and people who do not. he will continue to talk about this and the squad at his rally this evening. >> bill: thank you. >> sandra: let's bring in alisha finley. brad blakeman, former deputy assistant, angie needs a no, professor of political science at iona college. yesterday was a big day. we will hear from the president later today. >> he is trying to put nancy pelosi and the squad on defense by painting them as the base of the democratic party. it's quite amazing that the squad is more radical than nancy pelosi. this is apparently a strategy. i think he is getting a little push back. i don't think this is playing as
7:04 am
horribly and places like pennsylvania, ohio, wisconsin. >> bill: let's remember you remember. pelosi was called out of order. the speaker of the house represents the entire house. she is supposed to be the representative of every member of congress. yet she took it upon herself to call the president racist. so she passed to the rubicon, and the fact is this was a set up because she supposedly cleared her comments with the parliamentarian before she made them, yet blindsided her caucus and her leadership when she did that. >> we have to admit president trump is like the darth vader ninja of media. he can control the media like nobody we have ever seen. that is what he has done. he didn't want to talk about the labor secretary, he didn't want to talk about the i.c.e. raids,
7:05 am
didn't want to talk about health care, what the republicans are doing on that, so what have we done? we have all done it. i've done it. it is going to continue. he is magnificent at controlling this. >> bill: he took the heat off of speaker pelosi and her fellow democrats. >> he did pelosi of favor, he is painting them -- this is what everybody is talking about. how radical are the democrats? raising their hands to give health care to illegal immigrants, talking about taking away private health insurance. this is exactly what he wants to do. >> bill: rashida tlaib talking about speaker pelosi. >> she is speaker of the house. she can ask for a meeting to sit down with us for clarification. we are women of color, so a -- >> bill: our apologies on tha that. be aware of what you are doing,
7:06 am
especially because some of us are receiving death threats. our backgrounds, experiences, so forth. the point is it wasn't just about president trump. it was about their relationship. >> there is dissension within the ranks of the democrats. trumps problem with these four individuals, what they say, not who they are. it's just what they say. calling i.c.e. the equivalent of concentration camp guards. calling the president a racist. this has been all in the works for a very long time. he should be removed, he's a criminal, yet they are not holding impeachment hearings. they are having a nice recess, and they will bring it back. the two gayle king pressed them about meeting with the speaker and whether there is a willingness to do that. our teams are talking. doug collins was on fox earlier today and responded to that. he stated it like this.
7:07 am
>> that's amazing to me that members of her own party are refusing to talk to the speaker. this is a two-way street of communication. i have never seen communication not be a two-way street. if i wanted to talk to the speaker, i would go talk to the speaker. it really shows you that chaos. >> this is nothing new. does anyone remember john boehner resigned? paul ryan resigned? speakers have been dealing with this. every speaker in modern american history, and nancy pelosi is dealing with exactly what they were dealing with. you have these very big caucuses. very diverse. they don't agree. she has a challenge on her han hands. i think this is a gift for the president. i think he has been -- she would like nothing more than these congresswomen to keep on going because this is playing right into his 2020 strategy. >> bill: allysia. >> i think that is true in some cases, but he needs to persuade
7:08 am
women in particular. those are the demographics that he lost in 2018. and i don't know that this play as well in those areas, allowing democrats to portray him as a xenophobe, which i don't think anyone thinks that he is. >> sandra: we talk to ronna mcdaniel on that earlie earlier. an initiative to retain those women voters. and some that have left him. >> let's remember that after all the rhetoric, what does it come down to? it's the economy. women are doing very, very well in the trump economy. unemployment, jobs, as far as advancement and salary. so when he makes the appeal to women, he's got a record to run on. i think that transcends a lot of what we are here now. we are a long way off, but if the economy stays as good as it
7:09 am
is, especially with women and minorities, i think trump has got an important hand to play. >> bill: more to come on this. we have another debate coming up. bernie sanders is going after joe biden in no way that we probably have not heard publicly until now. here it is. >> joe was a strong supporter. how is not going to play in the midwest, which was decimated? michigan, wisconsin, other states were decimated by these terrible trade agreements? i don't think that they will be very kind to him. >> it's the same debate we are seeing between pelosi and the establishment in the house and the new congresswomen. we are seeing it on the campaign trail. it is going to continue. it's a healthy debate for the democrats do have, but sanders is feeling the heat. you really see elizabeth warren coming on very, very strongly.
7:10 am
her fund-raising numbers in particular. she is taking the wind out of sanders progressive sails, and he is fighting back. >> sandra: bernie sanders also took on joe biden in that same interview. the difference between joe and me on foreign policy, domestic policy is pretty significant. so will we see more of those? >> well, i think so. in part because biden is still the front runner here. i think bernie is facing some squeeze, as you mention from elizabeth warren on the left. at the same time, he needs to fight for these middle class or their working-class voters in ohio, wisconsin, michigan. that is where biden is still doing very well. in the debate with kamala harr kamala harris, how she really benefited from going after bid biden. that really irked biden. i think he is attempting a similar strategy if strategy. >> you have to be selective before you are alike.
7:11 am
you better take on joe biden in these debates because he is the guy to beat right now. we have seen him slipping in the polls. bernie sanders and elizabeth warren -- from vermont and massachusetts. they should be shellacking him. that's not happening. a line in the sand between biden now and sanders. he says he is not forth medicare for all, yet bernie has told us or will be telling us more that his plan, his medical plan requires $40 trillion over ten years. there aren't enough rich people. >> bill: one other topic here. planned parenthood has ousted its director after only eight months on the job. she was a doctor from harvard. she believes that she was trying to treat abortion as a health issue, while others were trying to frame it as a political fight. why do you make of these development? >> i think again there is trouble within that organization
7:12 am
because they have been so radical and militant as a political organization instead of a health care delivery system. basically, it's all about abortion. she tried to broaden the base of planned parenthood, and she tried to soften the stance on abortion and the political radical net so that organization. >> bill: 's first doctor to lead in 50 years. >> she did try to broaden it. they want to focus on what they feel is under assault in terms of roe v. wade. the blue states like new york trying to protect it. they feel like they want to have someone who's going to be an advocate, and she wasn't willing to do that. to be dumped i don't think this will play well for them politically. basically pro-life groups have been really successful in persuading people, winning over public opinion. i think that is what the left needs to do here. what they should want to do. and i think basically ousting her as someone who is trying to make the appeal to our broader array -- that is really going to come back to hurt them.
7:13 am
>> sandra: apparently after a secret meeting, she was out. i am sure that we will hear more about that. thank you to our a-team this morning. >> bill: the supreme court remembering john paul stevens today. he passed away at the age of 99. he was appointed to the court by gerald ford in 1975. leading liberal voice on the court for nearly 35 years. we have a look at the life and the legacy now. good morning. >> good morning to you. even in recent years, he maintained that his conservative principles never changed throughout his time on the court. the justices around him and throughout the country that became more conservative. stevens was born in 1920 in chicago. he served in world war ii, earning the bronze star. stationed in hawaii. later in life, he was often described as a judges judge. he earned a reputation, which is
7:14 am
exactly what president ford was looking for in 1975 to help restore confidence in the government after watergate. on the bench, he was known for his big rimmed glasses, bow ti bow ties, lawyers arguing before the justices. and while he became a leader later in his career, he still maintained his independent streak, such as his dissent in the le landmark flagburning cas. "it has been an irresistible force, susan b. anthony, abraham lincoln. booker t. washington. and the soldiers who scaled omaha beach. if those ideas are worth fighting for, and our history demonstrates they are, it cannot be true that the flag that uniquely symbolizes their power is not itself worthy of protection from unnecessary desecration." he was a private person who
7:15 am
rarely did interviews, but he described his strategies from the bench. >> my philosophy is to ask questions when i think the answer might need a little bit more deciding. the question should be designed to help understand what the arguments on both sides are. >> stevens died after a brief illness at the age of 99 in florida. his impact on the court will be felt for generations. >> bill: thank you. >> sandra: breaking news just now. el chapo, the drug kingpin has been sentenced to life in prison for ten counts against him, 1-8, life in prison, to run concurrently with count nine, for which you will serve 30 years, to run consecutively. count ten, 20 years. so life in prison for the drug kingpin. that sentence just coming down a few moments ago. >> bill: 62 years old,
7:16 am
notorious drug lord brought to the u.s. to stand trial after he twice broke out of prison in mexico. the sentencing is and in brooklyn, new york. >> sandra: they also ordered him to pay $12 billion. the trump administration launching a new plan to transform what they call america's broken immigration system. >> a more secure border, it will solve the humanitarian crisis. long into the future, it will protect americans. >> sandra: how does the white house plan to do all of this, and will congress get on board? retired i.c.e. director, tom homan. >> bill: this from a cabinet meeting from yesterday. the housing secretary, dr. ben carson. he was there yesterday. he is here today. live with his reaction in moments.

7:22 am
at the border. >> bill: white house senior advisor jared kushner outlining his plan on immigration. 600 pages. it would and some of the legal loopholes. retired i.c.e. director, tom homan with us now. thank you for coming back here. we don't have a ton of detail. what do you understand about this and how it came together? >> i was first briefed on this plane a few months ago. jared kushner -- very good start. because front and center, more security. closing the loopholes that are causing the current crisis. it is based on the merit system, but family-based migration is still in there, but is it is about the sons and daughters, not so much about cousins and as such. i think it is a good place to start. the white house is throwing out a plan.
7:23 am
so throw it on the table. we can fix some of these problems. >> sandra: the point just to get enough support to enact change. to have something actually passed. is this possible with what has been presented? >> i think we should start a discussion. once you put up plan out there and let the other side react, do i think this plan is written will pass? no. i think it's a start. i think it will be tweaked by the right and left. congress doesn't do the job, i made it clear. you can keep vilifying the men and women of i.c.e. and border patrol for congress' failure. fix the loopholes, we were not have this issue. i am hoping that this plan starts a discussion. >> bill: which loopholes are you referring to? asylum? >> detaining families, long
7:24 am
enough to see judge -- >> bill: i apologize. i just want to get that. how many days will that be extended? >> it's open-ended, right? we detain families about 40 days. 45 days. long enough to see a judge. so i don't think that number will change very much. >> bill: what would that do to those who are crossing the border or trying to? >> i think once the families realize that they are not going to be released into the u.s., they just don't show up. less than 2% -- they ignore the judges order at the end. when families realize that they will be detained long enough to see a judge, i think that is going to cause a decrease in border crossing. >> sandra: i will ask you about these new asylum rules. the american civil liberties union filed a lawsuit on this as i expected. immigration officials trying to figure out how to carry out
7:25 am
those. what is your reaction, tom? >> i think it's a good policy. all the trump administration is doing is going by the rules of international law. to qualify for asylum, you have to have to be escaping your own government for persecution, race, religion, political beliefs. so it shouldn't be about getting to the united states. as soon as you escape the country's aggression, you should claim asylum. so you should -- guatemala should claim asylum in mexico. what is happening around the border, with 90% losing their cases, it isn't so much about fear and persecution. it is about getting to the united states. hopefully this will stop that. >> bill: how many of those seeking asylum would fit that category if the law is changed and upheld by the courts? >> just about all of them. let me clarify that.
7:26 am
mexico, if you are seeking asylum from mexico, you have to consider the united states. if you are denied asylum by one of these other countries, you can still claim asylum. you have to go to that for safe country first and consider if they are before move on. >> sandra: what is the immediate impact that this is having at our border? >> well, i think it is going to call some controversy. you are saying it already, that the groups are going to have to claim asylum. waiting to come to the united states. i think that they should have to claim asylum in mexico and plead their case there before moving onto the united states. >> bill: just one final question here. they consolidated with 25 senators. how difficult is those to get through this congress or even the next one? >> extremely difficult. this congress isn't working together. not even talking.
7:27 am
especially in terms of immigration. i testified last week about the division on the hill. just the worst i have ever seen in 34 years. i hope that it comes to something, but i am not overly optimistic. >> bill: is this a pipe dream, then? >> it is the start of the discussion. the administration says you put a plant on the table, let's have a discussion. if the democrats don't come to the table, then we know it is all about politics and not about securing the border. >> bill: we will see what happens. thanks so much for coming back. tom homan. >> sandra: thanks, tom. a tanker going radio silence whilst dominic while passing through the strait of hormuz. >> bill: new fallout and no war of words. the president sounding off on those for progressive democrats. they have responded in an extensive interview earlier today. the housing and urban development secretary ben carson was in the cabinet yesterday.

>> you look at what they have said, i have slipes right here, the most vile, horrible statements about our country. about israel. it's up to them. they can leave that i can can stay. >> sandra: president trump doubling down with his back and forth, with congresswoman, the president defending his tweets against lawmakers who are accusing trump of spreading racism and division. secretary of housing and urban development was in the cabinet meeting and dr. carson, mr. secretary, good morning to you, welcome to america's newsroom. so we heard from many of the lawmakers yesterday. but within the president's own cabinet dirks view the president's words, view his tweet as racist? >> well, you know, i have an
7:33 am
advantage of knowing the president very well, and he's not a racist and his comments are not racist. but he loves the country very much and, you know, he has a feeling that those that represent the country should love it as well. >> sandra: 3 of those congress women are born in the u.s., they are all-american citizens, mr. secretary. the president suggested that "they can about back to their countries" so that they can go wherever they want, but didn't name any of those countries away. did the president mean because he's not taking back going he said. >> well, i think you can see what the president means by look at his accomplishment. look at his policies, you know, under this president you see the rising tide lifting all boats. you see low unemployment, you know, record-low for blacks, hispanics, you know, for all the
7:34 am
the demographics for our nation. yesterday, i talked about the opportunity zone. what's happening in some of these place system just as stonishing and talking to some of those people there i go around and listen to what they have to say. and they are as stonished. they say i didn't think this could ever happen. just a couple of week ago, the president signed an executive order establishing a council eliminating the barriers to affordable housing. who's going to benefit for that? so when you have someone who's spending much time and effort, trying to elevate those who are vulnerable and who are suffering in our society. i think we should pay a lot more attention to what they are doing than what quarterback is saying. >> bill: when the cameras went waxer did he talk about this more in that cabinet meet? >> when the cameras went away,
7:35 am
we kind of went around the table and talked to the secretaries about the good things that were happening and you know, that's another topic. if you go to and you look under accomplishments, you'll be as stonished and there are a lot great things going o. >> bill: i don't mean to harp on this, but specifically about the progressive congress women come up again? >> that was not the topic. >> bill: okay. toilet take you back to philadelphia on is the night. ilan omar was quoted as saying the following. i believe as an immigrant, i probably lover this country more than anyone that is naturally born, and because i am ashamed of it continuing to live in hip ocincrease. they will will you america the great, but we don't live those values here. end "d." just go ahead, based on your life experience, what do you think of that comment? >> well, you know, i have to
7:36 am

which could play right into the president's hands. my next guest, telling a washington examiner, quote suggest useful to remember, trump does not play tick tack toe. he place chess and is setting up a much deeper fight. and wants the democrat to identify with this. i think the president is often inartful, but remarkably
8:17 am
effective. newt beginning rich is the former speaker of the house and joins us now. mr. speaker, good morning to you r. tell us what, is your thinking on this? you're making the case, this was very purposeful on the part of the president and it's all playing in his hand. i think the president is making two strategic steps here. one s he wants to make sure the democrats embrace the radical wing of their party and speaker fellows setrying very hard to separate them. and it's going to be pretty hard not to believe they're all on the same team. and we're going to end up with kevin mccarthy as speaker of the house. if they get identified with these radicals, they are just going to lose and i think in that sense.
8:18 am
the president successfully unified the democrats. and i think a major theme next year, much as there was in 1984 with president regan is going to be patriotism, and every time the president says patriotism, the left wing media, the propaganda wing of the democratic party yells racism. and the number of times, the various left wing media, using the word "racist" or "racism" is interesting and does the average american think, for example, f object to a thousand people attacking a federal building in colorado, tearing down the american flag, defacing t hanging it up, upside down and putting next to it ah, mexican flag. if you object to that, are you a patriot orratist? the left will scream racism ract the rest of the country going to scream. i think the president is sitting
8:19 am
up a big national dewait next year over the nature of patriotism and whether or not you're allowed free speech if you're a conservative, not just if if you're a radical. >> when it comes to the recent instance, pertain to the president's tweet, i guess it depends on who you ask. hakim jeffs was on this morning, making the point that it is a unifying force for the democratic party. >> the progressives are not the problem. the new demolition permits are not the problem. the blue dogs are not the problems. the chief is the problem. that's a unifying theme, not just for a democratic caucus butt nation. the existential threat to our democracy, to our way of life, to our values, is so severe. >> he's making the case. obviously, this could unify his party. >> just as you had the other
8:20 am
night, you had all 10 candidates raise their hand over things like open borders and medicare for all and so forth. there's no question in my mind, the demolition permittic party is going to be remarkably unified, but remarkably left wing n. 1972 when they nominated george mcgovern, he was seen as almost everybody as so radical b. the rest of the nkemdiches can say not me. what's happening now is just the opposite. they're all the same person. doesn't matter whether they nominate biden or kamala harris or bernie sanders or senator elizabeth warren, they're all the same left-wing, hardline, fringe politicians. so they are going to get 40% of the vote under any circumstance and they're going to have huge enthusiasm, they may in the process, square away most americans. >> the president's got a rally leader today, down on this the president believe that is issue
8:21 am
is do you think people who are hard line, left wingers, people who can't even tell the truth about the holocaust, people who can't tell the truth about 9/11, people who lie about the border, which clearly, aoc did. if you think that's appropriate, you ought to be a left-wing democrat. but if you think america is a country worth defending, if you think our board servant worth defend defending, if you think we have a right as americans to expect the ruling of law then you're going tend up being with trump. i think that's his basic them attic from now until election day. have the two choices. a hard left choice and other rest of us. >> he'll be rallying later today. speaker of the house, newt beginning rich. always good to talk to you. >> breaking news. in new york. a notorious drug lord, el chapo, juan guzman has been sentenced to life in prison plus 30 years. he did not go quietly today away. he and his lawyers are say being
