with highs in the low 60s and rain returns on thursday and they look like they could be as significance as they have been. and windy and wet on thursday and we have a look to yesterday's wind gusts. they were impressive at laguardia and the highest was 45 miles per hour and newark, 48 miles per hour. in central park, we recorded gusts of 32 miles per hour yesterday and we could get a breeze this afternoon, it will be nothing in comparison to that. and we look at the temperature trend. yesterday, the high was 49 and with the winds, of course, it felt cooler. a high of 58 and tomorrow, 61 and tuesday, a bit of a cooldown. the next few days are looking good. and looking at november on the whole, 13 of 14 days have been above normal. of course, yesterday was the outlier with a high of 49 degrees. mild so far this november and looks like generally that trend continues until roughly next sunday. >> i think next sunday could be
in the upper 30s and low 40s and that is a ways away. let's talk about this morning. the skies are clear out there and they will stay that way for the day today and looking good with the high pressure in play but still cold out there to start the morning off with winds out of the west- northwest. today is the better half of the weekend if you didn't like the cold and wind. today will be warmer with a breeze but not a big breeze like yesterday. tomorrow, what is happening, the high pressure migrates off of the coast and warming into the low 60s and then a dipping cold front. we call them a backdoor cold front and dropping in on it said and making for a cooler stretch for your day and i think it's going to be lovely. mostly sunny with a high of 58. the winds out of the west at 10 to 15 miles per hour and calmest morning. overnight, mostly clear and not as cold. 46 in the city, more upper 30s into the suburbs for your day tomorrow and i love it.

the attacks. his story and more next at 7:00. group," the american original -- for over three decades, the sharpest minds, best sources, hardest talk. john: issue one, the milwaukee debait. hosted by the fox business channel and "the wall street journal," this week's republican presidential debate was held in mauck, wisconsin, and focus -- in milwaukee, wisconsin, and focused on the economy, foreign policy and immigration reform. >> i like ike. moved a mall and a half illegal immigrant -- moved a million and this country. >> 12 million illegal immigrants, to send them back,
500,000 a month, it's not possible. and it's not embracing american values. john: what do you think of that open, pat? pat: i think it's going to help trump in the republican party. what ike did was called operation wetback, in those politically incorrect days, and he got this general to go down to texas and they moved one million illegal immigrants back into texas, deep into the interior. we learned later, recently, that some of it was very tough and in parts inhumane. but i will tell you politically, trump is taking that example which is well known in the immigration community, i've written about in it a couple of books, and i think politically speaking solely, it is an enormous benefit to trump who is up by almost 50 points on who is best equipped to deal with republican party. the question is, will it damage the republican party in the general election? will the immigration issue? but there's no doubt in the primary situation, trump had a real winner in that particular
eleanor: at least he had the good sense not to say operation wetback was that's an epithet, it was an epithet then, it's an epithet today that operation was a humanitarian disaster. people drowned. people died of dehydration in the desert where they were cordoned off. and president eisenhower started in, i think, april and may of 1954. by september it was widely seen as a disaster and it was over. and you can't extrapolate from that that you can now humanely deport 11 million or 12 million people, trump is talking about creating a deportation roll. it is ludicrous. jeb bush is right on this issue. he had a stronger performance in this debate, at least i thought on that. i look forward to the debate within the republican party on this. but this is going to be damaging to whoever emerges with the
nomination next year. >> i think what we're seeing is sharpening of the debate. they're about the opportunity for jeb bush to stand up, he's running out of time, he's on vapors right now, but also people like rubio who i expect in the next debate will be pushing back against trump. as much as there's an opportunity for trump to reinforce his mantra, i'm very tough on immigration, aisle getting them out, that's all that counts, it's very damaging to the republican party for obvious reasons in the sense that what happened under eisenhower was actually american citizens being withdrawn, but the idea that you can come into people's homes and take 11 and a half million people out, not only sit not logical but in a moral sense, it fundamentally undercuts the notion of american society and conservative. that the heart of the family is something important to the american psyche. >> trump wins whenever the mainstream attack him on illegal immigration. the presence of 12 million
illegal aliens is seen as proof of washington's incompetence and when jeb said that we just have to accept the failure of border control and legalize immigrants, jeb was shooting himself in the foot while attacking trump. >> there's no doubt he's appealing to his base, that is trump's base. however, i notice during his -- during bush's responses, a lot of republicans applauded this, didn't approve of trump's position. maybe that's because they could see republican fortunes going down the tubes if you have the same kind of turnout you had back in 2012. >> a lot of them flat out disagree, exactly. it's an inhumane policy. >> third world immigration -- immigration, mass immigration, illegal immigration into the continent of western europe, these are burn, blazing issues, they are changing politics upside down in europe. politically in the republican primary, this is a winner for trump. in the general election, i'm not
talking about. but in the primary this is a winner for donald trump. eleanor: but is winning the primary and losing the general election isn't necessarily what the republicans want. pat: got to win the nomination first. eleanor: illegal aliens, these are people who take care of our children, they work in our restaurants. pat: they broke into our country. eleanor: many of them are successful. we wouldn't have an agriculture with them. american corporations have benefited from this. if you want to fault anyone, fault american corporations for being a magnet for people who come here. pat: a country has to have borders or it isn't a country. >> that's a nice thought but the thing is, the number never changes. most americans, realistically, we've got so many folks who have undocumented workers cutting their grass and doing all the other jobs because there is a
demand for it. >> mass deportation and mass legalization, but some say, i thinks that good corrective for your thinking, pat if you don't mind my saying so, if illegal aliens are denied driver's licenses, banking services, and then if everify employment standards are required, the majority will eventually willingly go elsewhere. pat: there's no question that everify, going to every employer and say, get the social security number. if a guy doesn't have a social security number, is not a citizen, doesn't have a green card, they'll go back. who should be expeled? first any felons, people coming out of prison, people arrested on drunk driving. i do agree with that. if you do enforce these measures -- eleanor: that's what obama -- that's obama policy. pat: they'll begin to go back. john: they will. extreme measures are not really needed.
pat: some deportations are needed. john: it's being christian. pat: europeans are christian and let all those folks in, that's the end of europe, john. >> just as an addendum to this -- >> the what? >> addendum. john: is that about your green socks? >> these green socks are a statement. you have a candidate like rubio, bush, whoever it is, the establishment candidate, it helps trump. but all those other people voting, 6%, 7% for other candidates, gravitate to another candidate who is not trump and that allows republicans to say, here's another proposal. helps the economy, help prospect american society. but it's a more moderate thing. pat: i want amnesty.
john: i want to talk about the minimum wage, i want to set it up. every time we wage the minimum wage the number of jobless people increases. >> every time we raise the minimum wage, the number of jobs repeople increases. >> if you raise the minimum wage, you're going to make people more expensive than a machine. >> they're not going to be -- we're not going to be able to compete against the world. i hate to say it but we have to leave it the way it is. >> we do have a moderate increase in the minimum wage. eleanor: trump says wages are too high which is a 30-second ad, ready to be made, if he does -- by the democrats if he gets the nomination. and you know, $15 minimum wage is taking off around the country in various locales. for this string of candidates to be up there, spouting false statistics about how if you raise the minimum wage, disaster -- >> minimum wage is a job killer. >> it's not.
john: a modest increase, as cacic suggested. >> if we kept up with inflation, the real minimum wage would be close to $18 an hour now. you can raise it a little bit. pat: unemployment among the unskilled -- there's another issue that splits the republican party from the time they run for the nomination and the general election. in the nomination run if you say the minimum wage does kill jorks it does kill some. you raise it to 15 bucks a an hour, wal-mart said if you do that in d.c., we're not going to open a store. eleanor: maybe then the wal-mart employees wouldn't all be on government programs. they're not playing -- paying enough. it's a subsidy to corporations. >> very quickly, i seriously think, statistics will come out. i tend to think, having worked in a restaurant, the problem is that the people, the lowest suffer. the people who are on the minimum wage, utility, what's the cost equivalency for other families.
eleanor: having worked in a restaurant doesn't make you an authority. >> but it gives you personal perspective. it gives you perspective about the manager's choices about who they're giving shifts to. >> i've been to the middle east four -- there have been four times in the middle east where minimum wage was raised and unemployment didn't go up, it went down. that's because it depends on what the current economy is like. sometimes the real minimum wage can be higher than the federal minimum wage and that also happens. pat: states an can raise it. a rich state like washington or new york. i had a guy work for me, had 12 employees, all african-americans in alabama, you raise the minimum wage by a buck an hour, it would have wifed -- wiped out his profits. eleanor: that's what they say. they didn't allow for any they just come down -- option. states should have the option.
eleanor: fine, but republican mantra is basically if you give people at the low end of the income scale more money it somehow is a disincentive. but people at the higher end of the income scale, give them more money and that's a wonderful incentive. it's backwards. pat: the people getting hit by this are black kids. they are wiped out of the market. >> black kids don't live near where the jobs are. if we had a way to transport them out there. which by the way, about 20 years ago in boston, they had job surplus, they were busing kids from the inter city to the bushes to work at hamburger flipping jobs. what's that's what happens when they're -- you have jobs. >> this all comes under ethics, it comes under the more liberal governance model if you combine that with other things, what's it costing for a family in a place like new york versus a more conservative area. you see costs go up, you see it in california. i don't think it's as wonderful as it seems.
eleanor: the federal minimum wage has gone up under democratic and republican presidents. president george w. bush was the last president who signed an increase. this is not a liberal fantasy. this is what we have done throughout the years to keep up with the cost of living. now we're suddenly at a stone wall and it's become an ideological research. john: research shows that even a modest hike in minimum wage results in fewer entry jobs. eleanor: research shows that's not true. so we can meet in the marking -- parking lot afterwards and share research. john: i'm quoting way sick. >> it depends on where you stand where it -- where you sit. there have numerous times when minimum wage has gone up but unemployment hasn't gone up. john: we'll leave it far future discussion. bank exchange. >> i would not let the people who put their money in there all go down. as an executive i would figure
out how to separate those people who could afford it versus those people, the hardworking folks who put their money in those institutions. john: does anger over the bailout still permeate the public? >> yes, of course it does. but the problem becomes what dodd-frank. you look at community banks, bank charges, one of the twhings talked about on a previous show which i think should be a more consensual thing, when there's a white collar crime, that person goes to prison. pat: what happened here, all these banks, nationally if we hadn't bailed out those banks after lehman brothers went down, that weekend, merrill lynch would have gone down, bank of america, they had to intervene. but what both these folks didn't mention, you've got deposit insurance now up to $250,000 for small depositors. they're not going to be wiped out. at the same time, tom's point is well taken. when banks go down if you've got to bail out the bank, that's one
thing. but the guys who made the mistakes ought to be marching off to prison. none of these bankers were. they made a mistake, wasn't that did it. it's guys in there that did it. eleanor: building those cases has take an long time. some of those people are finally getting their due. but if a republican gets elected you know they'll try to undo all the reforms and that's going to help the big banks. pat: i agree with glass-steagall, separate the bank into savings an boar reing, hedge fund guys, let them do it. let them take the risks. >> the problem with that, though, they won't give loans because the investment fort foal yow is where they make money. >> they don't give loans now. john: what would you do if a bank were failing? bail them out? eleanor: i would bail out a bank if the whole global trading system were in danger. that's what happened in 2008 and 2009. pat: you talk about j.p. morgan chase.
>> i want a government really, really small. is small you can barely see it. i want lower taxes and much more money in the private sector. >> there are more words in the the bible. and not a one of them is as good. >> we have to go to a three-page tax code you lower every rate, close every loophole. john: republicans offered a range of options from revising the tax code to jettisonning it altogether. what's your take on it? >> dream. eleanor: dream on. >> dream on, yeah. it has everything to do with everything but real mathematics. this is a problem. i love carly fiorina's idea of the three-page tax code. but start telling people that means no mortgage deduction, no charity deduction. all these deductions we're accustomed to. there's a reason every one of those is in there. each one requires a different legislative debate. every four years we hear the same tax ed bait, the same ideas
come out. >> i heard everything except the, what was that -- >> flat tax. >> flat tax. eleanor: and they -- >> there are some options. john: trump's tax plan has the most populist appeal because he proposes substantially higher taxes for the wealthy. eleanor: but he also proposes doing away with the estate tax, what they don't get back while they're alive, their heirs will be sure to get. pat: you want to talk realistically, john what the republicans will be able to do and can do is somewhat simplify the tax code and reduce tax rates and they can be relied upon to do that. as we -- as for getting the code down to three pages and taking the i.r.s. out -- >> a distinction between fiscal conservatism and rubio's pro-family, refundable child tax credit as a government giveaway.
>> kasich tried to advocate a val-added tax. >> you can lower rates, you can get a bit more revenue which i would say is important for things like defense. big-time need entitlement reform. >> wait a minute. eleanor: they didn't offer anything for the middle class. in fact they barely everyone mentioned the phrase middle class. middle class is basically at the heart of the difficulties this country is facing and the disparity between the very rich and the declining middle class. they seem totally oblivious to my of diinform, d -- to any of that >> they summed it up by quoting coolidge -- pat: when coolidge was president the federal government used 3% of g.d.p. it's now closer to 21 kt.
>> that's before my time. eleanor: population has gotten bigger. john: they used coolidge, j.f.k. and reagan as examples for supply side tax plan to cut rates. eleanor: when eisenhower was president, the marginal rate if you made big bucks, 90% of it went to the government. kennedy brought it to 70%. reagan took it to the 30es -- 28%. and it's never recovered except under bill clinton when we had a balanced budget. john: the t.p.p., transpacific partnership. >> we might want to point out, china is not part of this deal. >> if the u.s. is unable to take part with these countries in asia china will take the lead. john: is trump right when he called the t.p.p., quote, the worst, unquote and warned it

>> in the short-term yes. in the medium to longer term, look how much wealth is created around the world. pat: but what about america? >> these countries will become wealthier. pat: the chinese are going to close their own market to america. do you think they'll be as stupid as we've been? >> that's the challenge to take cry in a on. pat: how will you crack them open? >> leave them out. pat: that's what you should have done. >> the fact is there are benefits for working class and poor people. pat: they lose their jobs, but they can get goods cheaper at wal-mart. >> it works both ways. tell people they'll be paying a consumer tax, literally, on the increase. >> a -- eleanor: a lot of jobs are coming back. g.e., for example, wanted 70% of its jobs offshore and 70% to india. they're now bringing them back because g.e. is so dependent on technology and data and they --
