apartheid in africa. >> those who want to destroy israel, name one radical islamic group that wants to destroy the state of israel that doesn't want to destroy america. the policies coming out of the democratic party are dangerous. tlaib and omar are calling form an economic boy cot against israel. the reason she is not visiting her grandmother is she has called for an economic boycott. jon: thank you, garrett. 2020 candidates criss-crossing early voting states. peter doocy is on the trail in south carolina.
3:15 pm
reporter: the first in the south primary voters have been getting a ton of attention from the top tier in the primary field. but not every democratic candidate thinks it's a good idea to come here. 448,134 to be exact. they answered 410 questions in 8 categories about vehicle quality. and when they were done, chevy earned more j.d. power quality awards across cars, trucks and suvs than any other brand over the last four years. so on behalf of chevrolet, i want to say "thank you, real people." you're welcome. we're gonna need a bigger room. i switched to geico and saved hundreds. that's a win. but it's not the only reason i switched. geico's a company i can trust,

3:17 pm
people in my area actually paid for the same car. looks like these folks paid a little more than everyone else. and this guy got the deal of a lifetime. this is how car buying was always meant to be. this is truecar. (narrator) before you buy a car, see what others paid for it with truecar.
3:18 pm
3:19 pm
jon: 2020 democrats try to secure votes in early voting campaign states. elizabeth warren attended church services. she cite scripture and asked the congress grow nation to keep her in their prayers as she seeks the highest office in the land. >> never did i think i would be running for office. but the reason i did is i have been called to act. jon: peter doocy is river in richburg, south carolina with more. >> at this point in the nominating process it's perfectly normal for candidates to court donors in early states.

3:21 pm
reporter: not in south carolina or ohio or ham, beto o'rourke says he thinks those are fake places he should not be focused on. so he goes to arkansas. >> in this country, though we would like to think otherwise, was founded on racism, has persisted through racism, and is racist today. reporter: the campaign trail is clogged today because candidates are running out of time. they only have 10 days left from today to have higher poll numbers or enough donors to their campaign to make the fall
3:22 pm

3:25 pm
jon: he's taking aim sat tom steyer. bug lock who is struggling to qualify for september's debate says the donor requirement rules are tipping the scales to candidates with deep pockets. the thought that you need to spend $10 million to get on a debate stage. the intention was to show we have small donor -- small dollar donors. but more money gets shifted to facebook ads and google. jon: danna perino is filling in for chris wallace this week. that airs 7:00 p.m. eastern after this program, the "fox report."

3:31 pm
bills. joining us now jamie weinstein host of the jamie weinstein show pod cast and founding partner of jmw strategies. jamie, thank you for being here this evening. >> thanks for having me. jon: want to take a look at some of the issues that congress is either considering or has already passed. first of all, they have already passed increased background checks in the house. they plan to consider limits on large capacity magazines, limits on ownership for people convicted of hate crimes, but they say they are not going to consider an assault weapons ban. is this the congress that is going to change the nation's gun laws substantially? >> well, i don't think so. in part because we're in the political season. they have not been able to pass gun laws in the past after mass shootings. and with a very very political year ahead of us, going into 2020, with political tensions high on both sides, it seems unlikely to me that republicans and democrats will come together
3:32 pm
this time to pass gun laws, and certainly whether the gun laws would even if passed stop the types of incidents, the type of tragedies we saw in the last couple of weeks. jon: the president spoke this afternoon. he said he is the biggest supporter of the 2nd amendment, of just about any president in history. listen to what the president had to say. >> i don't want people to forget that this is a mental health problem. i don't want them to forget that because it is. it's a mental health problem. and as i say, and i said the other night in new hampshire, we had an incredible evening, i said it is the people that pull the triggers, not the gun that pulls the trigger. so we have a very very big mental health problem. jon: is there the appetite in congress to, you know, spend more on funding mental health treatment, for instance? >> well, i think there's going to be -- i think lindsay graham said he is going to put in a
3:33 pm
proposal, not dealing with mental health treatment but the red flag laws that would allow a temporary take away of guns if someone reports that someone has mental issues and then that could be adjudicated. some people on the right think there's a problem of due process there. that might be one issue where there is some agreement. again, you know, 2020 is -- every presidential season has high politics. we're seeing really high politics here, polarizing politics. it seems very hard to imagine if something is not, you know, passed immediately once they come back from congress that as the closer you get to 2020, that anything will get done in congress at all. jon: those who don't like firearms have coined the phrase assault weapons to include a certain category of weapon, like the ar 15. lindsay graham whom you mentioned talked about that earlier today. listen. >> sometimes you may find yourself alone where there are no cops can get to you because of a natural disaster, you may need an ar 15, believe it or not
3:34 pm
if a mob shows up at your house, but taking my gun away from me is not going to solve a problem. we want to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, mental health issues is where we should be focusing. jon: again, he like the president is saying mental health issues are really the linchpin for all of this. >> you know, every time one of these terrible tragedies occur, it seems like you get the same debate in washington. background checks come up. but, you know, in the most two recent mass shootings and in most of the other mass shootings in the last decade or so, background checks wouldn't have stopped -- wouldn't have stopped a single one of those. it does seem perhaps we need new thinking at what will stop or what we can do to prevent from these types of tragedies from occurring. maybe the red flag laws are a potential way to stop it. going after people who shouldn't have guns. maybe it is getting the fbi to focus more on the threat of white supremacist terrorism which we have seen increasing in some of these attacks.
3:35 pm
i think two other people -- two other incidents were stopped this week, when people were arrested for -- white supremacists were arrested for planning an attack. perhaps we need to get the fbi to focus on that. a lot of this debate does seem stale in the wake of these attacks. you get the same debate. it is not clear that some of the things that are advocated to get passed would actually stop these types of attacks. jon: there are three interesting answers to our last fox news poll and i want to read these items to you and get your take on them. according to the poll, 90% of americans favor requiring background checks. 81% say you should take guns from at-risk people, that would be essentially the red flag laws that are being kicked around. and 67% say we should ban assault weapons in this country.
3:36 pm
now, we tried that once, the ban on assault weapons, did that make a difference? >> well, the data on the assault weapons bans is unclear. there's some people that argue that if you look at different parameters that it did make a difference. i guess the short of it is that it didn't make a significant difference that anyone can show, you know, definitely, that this made, you know, this works and will work again. i mean, even vice news, they have a great reporter over there, shauna thomas, she did a report on this and came to the conclusion that the data is unclear that assault weapons -- so called assault weapons bans made any difference at all. you can find people on both sides of it. but the data certainly doesn't definitively prove that made any difference at all. jon: jamie weinstein, good to have you on. thank you. >> thank you. jon: pro democracy protesters braving the rain in hong kong today. today's massive turnout was a peaceful one, despite recent
3:37 pm
clashes with police at several earlier rallies. a democracy advocate saying this, on sunday morning futures this morning. >> hong kong people seem very determined, you know, to persist the fight. what we want is -- [inaudible] -- because we come constantly encroachment on our freedom. jon: susan lee has the latest. >> 1.# million turned -- 1.7 million turned out for today's pro democracy march. hong kong police put the number at 128,000's at the rally's peak. one tends to exaggerate. one tends to underestimate. from our vantage point, we saw a lot of people on the streets. at least a few hundred thousand and from all walks of life, professionals, families, and students as well. >> the pro democracy march continues. the crowd certainly turned out. so did the rain.
3:38 pm
but that doesn't seem to be stopping the enthusiasm. >> thank you for the message. about the support in hong kong, and he has to help the hong kong human rights movement for china to treat hong kong humanly. >> it's the 11th straight week of the protests. it was important to get the big numbers to gauge public sentiment especially after the violent scuffles at hong kong airport which threatened the city's business and travel. also, it's important to note that these were peaceful rallies as well. that's something that the pro democracy leaders really emphasized going into this weekend. no tear gas and no violent confrontations. now, just to bring you up to speed on what some of those chants meant in chinese. one means means let's go. also one interesting one mean
3:39 pm
this is a new generation. we have new values, and we don't want to be under chinese rule. back to you, jon. jon: susan lee reporting, thanks. in the u.k. there are new revelations about what the british government thinks might happen if brexit goes through without a trade deal. the sunday times reporting secret documents warn there could be significant disruptions to medicine and potential food and water shortages. the deadline for britain to reach a deal with the european union is now october 31st. a cyber scare across texas as nearly two dozen of the state's cities are hit with a ransom ware attack. how officials are responding. red lobster's weekday win menu is here. five days. five deals. for fifteen dollars get a different deal every weekday til six pm like endless shrimp monday admiral's feast tuesday four-course feast wednesday and more. five days. five deals. fifteen dollars. see you before six. fifteen dollars. frustrated that everyday activities cause wrinkles and there's nothing you can do about it?
