5:02 pm
so, folks, i think you can forget about him. >> reporter: if you want more numbers to make your head spin, a new poll found that 70 percent of americans and almost 50 percent of republicans have an unfavorable view of donald trump. so, steve, he's winning the head to head match up polls. when it comes to popularity, it will give him trouble down the line. steve: that's the big concern on the part of republicans. thank you. >> hillary clinton rode the 4 train from yankee stadium, but struggled to get her metro card to work. that's the true sign of a new yorker. how quickly you swipe through. she was campaigning with ruben diaz, jr., and spoke about her record as senator while taking a shot at bernie sanders. >> it's all about rolling up our sleeves and getting to work. don't make promises you can't keep. know what you want to achieve and bring everybody together to get the results. and that's what i'm going to do
5:03 pm
and if i'm so fortunate as president. steve: she said she would take sanders as president over any of the republican candidates. dari: sanders continued his attack against mrs. clinton in philly. he says he's angry the former secretary of state implied that he was not ready to be ready. for the second straight day, he responded by questioning her qualifications to be commander in chief. >> are you qualified to be president of the united states when you're raising millions of dollars from wall street? if secretary clinton thinks i come from the small state of vermont, we're not used to it, we'll get used to it fast. i won't get lied about. we will fight back. dari: he attacked her stance on free trade and her vote in favor of the iraq war. steve: belgium authorities released footage of the suspect wanted in connection with the deadly bombing at the brussels airport. it shows a suspect leaving the airport and walking the streets in a nearby town hours after the attacks. the man in the hat was

the schools chancellor. >> our children are subject to violence. the violence is increasing. and we are seeing the tragic results almost daily. >> reporter: the lawsuit demands the department of education document and investigate each case of school violence and bullying and take action to make it stop. the lawyer says too many times the victim is the one who is punished by being moved to another school. >> the department of education has put up a broken system. >> reporter: we reached out to mayor bill de blasio's office for a response and they sent a statement that reads in part, we absolutely have more work to do, but school safety is showing us consistently that they can and will continue to drive down crime in the schools and keep all students and staff safe. something these parents say they find hard to believe. >> even though we're being told that violence is going down, it's going up.
5:06 pm
it's devastating. >> reporter: now, the group wants the d.o.e. to hire an independent monitor to investigate acts of violence on school grounds and they're upset that kids making complaints right now about bullying sometimes are moved to a new school while the bullier gets to stay put where they are. dari: that's a problem. thank you. the police commissioner taking action against four officers at the center of a joint fbi investigation into corruption in the nypd. >> based on information we know today, i have today modified and transferred deputy chief michael herrington and james grant. we have transferred deputy chief cohen and rodriguez. dari: commissioner bratton's announcement follows a report in the post claiming deputy inspector james grant accepted diamonds and cash from a brooklyn businessman. the ongoing joint investigation

5:08 pm
enjoy and keeping in mind to put different colors and flavors and textures. >> reporter: the school opened in 2010 with four students and a vegetarian menu. a few years and 90 students later, they took feeding the kids a step further, being sought out by parents who are vegan at home. >> the majority of our families that are not have noticed a big difference in their children's eating habits at home as well. they come home speaking about chick-peas and kale and quinoa. they're open to eating that. which before they might not have been. >> reporter: it has its own garden where the kids learn the meaning of farm to table. >> she knows there's a meaning to everything she put into her mouth. it's not just removed from a store on the shelves. >> reporter: this is good. >> pretty good. isn't it? >> reporter: yeah. if vegan isn't your life-style, having a five-year-old teach you
5:09 pm
>> so how about you mix all of the textures, like all the colors and soup, mix them together with some rice. maybe if that makes a better flavor, then the thing we just tasted. >> reporter: i'll try it. >> he'll try it. maybe a little bit more carrots so it can have a bit of flavor. >> reporter: i'm a diet. i'll watch what i eat. from jersey city, antwan lewis, fox 5 news. dari: that kid -- steve: a future star. that's the one exception. you're supposed to never give your mic to someone else. dari: i don't think he was going to not -- steve: the kid wasn't taking no for a an answer. dari: a lesson in art history. steve: the brooklyn woman who can turn this into a work of

5:13 pm
this is really out there. we have more fallout from the panama papers today. those are the nearly 12 million documents that were leaked from a law firm over the weekend. they show where pretty important people are hiding their money. more than 200 people with u.s. addresses have been identified. some executives, a few wall street guys, but really no major politicians or celebrities from our country yet. so today russian president vladimir putin spoke out. he's calling this a u.s. plot and he is denying any personal connection to any offshore accounts. he isn't specifically named in the papers, but some of hi close friends are linked to $10 billion and relatives of chinese politicians and china is trying to censor the documents. >> new data on the wage gap. you might be surprised by how much women in our country are losing over the course of their careers. we're talking more than $430,000 according to a new study from

5:18 pm
watch the showers lifting up. the heavier rain moving behind me out to the east. the wide view shows this band of showers. we'll see how much of this holds together as it tries to swing through. we have to keep showers in the forecast first part of the night as that system rolls along. basically as this heads up to the north, a cold front will slide off to the east. our next frontal system is in here. that's going to be diving southward. you'll see that on the futurecast. tomorrow showing clouds, sun at times, 40s, maybe a sprinkle in the afternoon. 53 will be the high. we go below average. the futurecast showing that happening with clouds and breaks of sun in the forecast. then there's this system swinging to our south. there's the snow and rain for saturday. again, could be enough to whiten the ground north and west of the city. struggling to get above 40. breezy on saturday. sunshine back sunday. breezy and chilly weather.

5:38 pm
do a little more to take care of other people. so you've got to be better. russ: he makes it simple. don't let people lose more than they've lost. don't let them lose their dignity. there's only so much you can do for yourself. if you care about other people, it makes you even stronger. i'd have to say that teddy atlas is made of the right stuff. steve: pretty powerful lesson. thank you, russ. dari: well, knitters were stitching up a storm today. steve: the event that took over yarn shops on long island. dari: plus, her face really is her canvas. the social media star -- we love this -- who's using makeup to recreate fine art. in new york state, we believe tomorrow starts today. all across the state, the economy is growing, with creative new business incentives, the lowest taxes in decades, and new infrastructure for a new generation attracting the talent and

require insurers to cover lyme disease treatments for as long as needed. right now the cdc doesn't recognize chronic lyme disease, so many insurance companies will not pay for long-term treatments that can cost thousands of dollars a month. the bill is currently under review in massachusetts, but it's causing a lot of controversy because some experts say extended treatments are not cost effective or proven to work. steve: a report about diabetes. the disease is on the rise. dari: joining us is dr. teo mendez from new york orthopedics. he's affiliated with lennox ox hill hospital. good to have you. wow. 422 million adults living with diabetes are, in fact, in poor countries. the w.h.o. is saying. >> what's happened is that the rate has doubled really of diabetes. that's because poorer countries, china, india, have really
