7:05 am
inside the store and employees were left to clean it up. the expense of that is a little bit of unclear. in the sure of the repercussions of that either because police tell us that all of yesterday thousands of protesters out here, and zero arrests, alex? >> that says a lot, good work. thanks, jenny. >> certainly. yesterday i was out and around in that area and there were police officers every where, lining up, everybody was peaceful and they are just protecting their rights to free speech. >> we are doing. that we have big event, police are really good at managing crowds, letting people say their peace and not having any problems disturbing peace. >> reporter: president trump is upsetting many people in fail with his comments about crime rising in our city. here's what he had to say. >> here in philadelphia the murder rate has been steady, i mean just terribly increasing. >> city leader quickly jumping to the defense of philadelphia to set the record straight. >> lets get over to police headquarters where steve keeley is, he has all of the
7:06 am
thumbs so we can see, is that a true statement or what do you think, steve. >> reporter: well, see the worth integrity, honor, integrity and service is model of the philadelphia police department. if you ask mayor kenney, either mayor, if you ask mayor kenney integrity is not a word wow use to describe donald trump especially when he refers to philadelphia yesterday in that speech when he seemed to not read the teleprompter or what was on there or what he was supposed to say. that was the perception. the lets look at more video of philadelphia's police department hard at work, again , throwing another perfect game. they get through another major incident with no arrests, and no problems, no vandalism, no where near what you saw just days before in washington, and mayor kenney called donald trump's statement about philly crimes fake facts and while men and women of the philadelphia police department mayor kenney said were working out on the street protecting
7:07 am
the president and other republican dignitaries putting their lives on the line every day to drive down the crime rate, he denigrates them. we're in a 40 year crime low what is he talking about? so we check with numbers. maybe donald trump was talking about this month already. we've got 27 murders and we only had 17 by this date last year? was he referring to that? who knows. he certainly could not be referring to the last ten years because in the past decade philly's crime rate and murder rate has gone way down. look at the murder numbers alone, 391 in 2007. and then, 277 last year. so, more than a hundred, but mayor kenney also said this we're not going to be happy until that number is at zero but certainly our crime is not out of control like the president made it seem to be. so not the happy with the president's referring philadelphia in the same line as chicago where there is a
7:08 am
big problem right now, but mayor kenney and donald trump not the best of friend to begin w notice one other thing you guys in the video we have been showing on the visit here , mayor kenney not at the airport to greet him and welcome him here to philadelphia. no brotherly love there, for sure. >> nope, not at all, thanks, steve. we have a developing story right the now at 7:08 out the of fairmount a police officer had to be taken to the hospital after that vehicle you can see it there all crack up, it collided with another car, and this all happened on west girard avenue and north 26th street around 2:30. that is the other car there, were two people inside, they were not injured, the the officers injuries are not life threatening, but the causes under investigation but officials say they just think it is an accident. we're also following developing news out of chester around 1:00 police were called to the 500 block of east 23rd street for shots fire. police say that a home was shot numerous times and at this time we don't know if anyone was in the home or if
7:09 am
anyone was injured. happening today, we have got some really troubling numbers from the philadelphia school districk this report will be released later today and tonight it shows their aiming buildings near $5 billion of repairs, according to district found that there are more than 12,000 outstanding repairs, the problem is, they have this is been fixing things along the way and delayed maintenance is reason why they are in such bad shape we have got some more alarming numbers, this is about lead in school drinking water in new jersey. the education officials have received 21 notifications there school district that they have had elevated levels of lead in the drinking water. where is this happening? they have not said which districts and schools have been affected? they have until july, to complete the lead testing. 7:09. there is a woman beat up, you can see black and blue marks underneath her eyes but she's not silenced by this one, she thinks it is important to speak out, and, off the the
7:10 am
street. surveillance video from gold star operations on elmwood avenue in southwest philadelphia you can see a has beinged man pistol whips owner after barging in the shop, he shook her violently and all for $100. sixty year-old woman said she's still scared. >> he hit me in the forehead, a few times. >> he hit you in the the information head two times. >> yes. >> she said she has never had anything like this happen this 15 years, of running her business, and you can really see the marks on her face. police are still looking for the robber. 7:10. president donald a trump host his first world leader at the white house later today. >> it is british prime minister teresa may. both countries are going through major transition ises. she was in our area yesterday speaking up the street and new she was in washington. >> she is following where donald trump is going, speaking to g.o.p. leaders and now going over to you in
7:11 am
washington. >> reporter: that is right, i think she's taking the acela down. >> maybe. >> reporter: but, look it is a quick hop, in doubt, teresa may and donald trump will talk about that special relationship, between the u.s. and uk. it is something that leaders of the these two countries always reference but this meeting comes as both of them are trying to forge new alliances, new relationships on the world stage. donald trump solutes and walks up the stairs of air force one his first time as command they are chief still getting used to the new ride. >> beautiful. great plane. really beautiful. >> reporter: but this tool of international diplomacy will carry trump into a world that is quickly realigning, that will be clear later today as he meets with british prime minister teresa may shepherd ing her own country through exiting from the european union. she spoke at a republican gathering in philadelphia ahead of today's visit.

7:13 am
tomorrow a conversation between russian president putin and president donald trump. now back to you. >> we appreciate you keeping us updated, doug. 7:13. there are new developments in two deadly amtrak accidents that happened in our area, over the past two years. >> engineer of the train 188 is suing amtrak after that deadly 2015 derailment and also the ntsb has released its report on that deadly crash that happened in delaware county last year. >> so first we will start the with the operator of amtrak train 188, we have attorney fred tecci here with more on both the but for brandon bostian's lawsuit, report came out that it was human error but he is suing amtrak, why. >> unbelievable to me. here's a guy who caused one of the worst train wrecks in history. we have people dead. we have people paralyzed. the fact of the matter is this guy could have been killed. his guardian angel was working overtime, he got combat pay and he turns around and sues amtrak. he is claiming that he
7:14 am
suffered from mental distress as a result of what happened but ultimately he was the guy driving the train that went in the 60-mile an hour curve at 109 miles an hour. i think for this guy to sue amtrak takes a lot of guts. >> his reasoning is amtrak failed to respond to reports that people were throwing things at trains and that is what distracted him because they weren't trying to handle the issue. >> i hear you, alex. those are his allegations. he is driving train. he has hand on the throttle. he hears there is issue about people throwing rocks at trains, there may be a problem what does he do? he continues on through the curve at 106 miles an hour. he was driving the train. the guy with the hand on the throttle was not his bosses, it was him. he should have gone through more safely. >> he is suing for $50,000 what do you think will happen. >> a couple things, he has right to sue his em lawyer, his claim is negligence, that they did something wrong and he got hurt. $50,000 is what you put in philadelphia common pleas court for purposes of whether or not arbitrator, heed eighth
7:15 am
or. i guarantee he is asking a lot more than $50,000. what will happies case will move forward. amtrak will deciding whether they want to defend it. under our system of justice if there is an accident to you are the person that brings the lawsuit a lot of people ask what role did you play? how much was your fault? in some states if tit is 1 percent your fault you are done. in pennsylvania, if it is shown he was 51 percent like he caused, he was most responsible for the accident, he doesn't get ten cents. so we will see what happens. >> we have another big case, we had ntsb report that came out about the situation in chester. >> tragic. >> two workers were killed. >> it looks like they believe it was their fault, workers fault. >> the ntsb was very critical of amtrak and very critical of management. they indicated that, you know, amtrak had this those during the course of the investigation that because this was routine track work there was certain standard and certain procedures that they did not have to follow whiz makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.
7:16 am
and so typical of the case, i studied them, airplane accidents, and actually worked for ntsb as a prosecutor, it is never one thing that causes an accident. it is a series of human errors in this case human errors there was a shift change. the foreman from the night shift didn't properly report back to the amtrak control guy and he realized the train came through here. the train was moving at 106 miles an hour, coming through there and the engineer he only had i think six to 17 seconds to react. you know, a train that weighs thousands and thousands of tons going a hundred miles an hour does not stop on a dime. so, ultimately, unfortunately horribly these two men were killed. >> didn't the report find that there was drug evidence as well with the driver. >> there was. the report found natalie marijuana had marijuana and open eighths but because he was given morphine at the time he was admitted to the hospital after the accident. but he did have marijuana in his system. and, obviously, in the state of pennsylvania, certainly you don't want your train drivers,
7:17 am
smoking weed and then driving trains but the question is whether or not that played a role, and from all reports, including a video of the inside of the train cabin, this guy acted very quickly and did everything he possibly could under the circumstances. so he should not have been smoking grass. he had weed in his system. but ultimately whether or not that was contributing fact orr cause of the accident that remains to be seen. >> thanks for having me. >> enjoy your weekend. >> we will keep you updated on amtrak incidents as they move forward. >> yes. 7:17. well, go ahead. >> well, it is weekend. we are exited to see what the weekend weather is and sue has a surprise with a s in it on sunday. >> at the end of the weekend beach get the through the weekend dry, is there a very slight chance, little wintry precipitation monday morning, even you can see, a little bit of snowflakes or two and let's say this lancaster county, berks county we had a report and a few snow flakes showing up there. this is just flurries, it the
7:18 am
is all from the lake east affect snow, which came on, when the cold air blew in after the rain ended yesterday , and ruined our mild temperatures, from wednesday and thursday morning. so it is 42 degrees now 306789 in mount pocono. forty in wildwood. but wind makes a difference. wind chillies 34, and it feels like it is below freezing in many areas this morning. keep that in behind before you send the kid out to the bus stop, it is 17-mile an hour sustain wind in philadelphia, we're seeing win gusts from 20 to 30 miles an hour. it the makes a difference. here's what is late weekend, sunday, perhaps into monday, here's a quick clipper system and sometimes they don't give us generally much, if anything in the way of snow. two computer models are saying next to months and one is saying a third of an inch of dusting of snow. so that is the situation here right thousand. it could change. in fact, here are the models, one says that the european model says a third of an this much of snow. we will keep comparing those
7:19 am
models and tracking it for you over the weekend so make sure you watch "good day philadelphia"/weekend both sat the day and sunday. get the latest forecast then. we can promise you this it will stay cold for the next seven days, bob kelly. >> be sure you have enough cake to get you through weekend. 7:19. good morning. we are starting to see, schuylkill expressway coming around conshohocken curve. accident on the turnpike between fort washington and the norristown interchange it is heading eastbound and are you ready for breakfast? today, i will head out to the coffee station in morton, a where they have scrapple fries , see you there at 9:00 o'clock. we will take you here live on good day. new schedules coming our way this weekend on septa's regional rail lines. we had some big problems last night, hot the mess, down tree with down wires, everything is back to normal, and then they have new schedules coming into play on sunday, same deal for patco, and then they have already cancelled the 8:03 train again.

7:33 am
congressman representative dwight evans. i want to start with you congressman meehan about this because you are a former u.s. attorney, former d.a., did you agree with the president's statement. >> well, numbers are numbers and i think, you though i have great respect for the philadelphia police tors and law enforcement and very good job that they do, the fact is last year at this time there were 17 murders. this year there are 27 murders at the same point. i think it speaks to people perfect concern about the fact that crime and feeling of safety, in the communities is something that is lacking, and the media will check them on the facts, and they should but when he speaks to things he is talking about things that people care about. when you get off on tangent of those other issues you missed the real point. i'm a by that cares about the
7:34 am
fact that people don't feel safe in their neighborhood. >> when you say he is a guy that cares, speaking of those issues don't you think he should have thumbs correct january 2017 there have been 27 homicide and last year there were 17 but when it comes to a month but yearly the thumbs they have certainly been down in 2007 we had 391 homicide, and in 2016, it was 277, so it has gone down. >> i told you the great work has been done, there is a thumb of things. here's a guy he goes off script and he will have to learn to be comfortable with his facts but you ask people in the neighborhood do they feel safer? are they feeling the things are in problems whatsoever. i believe that he is speaking to them, and saying i care about you and i will make this a priority and i think people ought to be great tool to say i want to headache issues of your safety in your neighborhood, something that
7:35 am
i'm going to be working on. >> representative dwight evans what were your thoughts on the trump's comments. >> first thing, i have worked closely with congress hand meehan and work with him at u.s. attorney's office. he is being night and light when he gets comfortable with the facts. is there a difference when someone out right lies about the thumbs. tackies we don't need that. if anything we should be working together. i work with the congress hand when he was with the u.s. attorney office. he is president of the you had he has been in that job for seven days. we should work together. it is in our collective interest that we make sure that this region and this city is safe. those police officers will get out there every single will day and they do an excellent job shouldn't be pointing tinkers at. congressman knows that. we need law enforcement. we need community. people working together. in this particular casey believe that the president is ted wrong and should not be saying those kind of things. if anything he should be
7:36 am
convening a heating with the mayor and delegation to work together to how to attack this issue of crime. it will not be solved unless we work together and in my view, in my experience that is how you work together. i think congressman, i understand he says he has to get facts wrong he is dead wrong. we should call him for it and say we have to work together. >> do you agree, congressman that he should be called out for the tax that he said it was steadily up creasing. >> you are calling him for the tax right the now but you are talking about working together and his administration he when i had chance with the u.s. attorney there was not only working together we had a ram in lays in which we partnered with local law enforcement and identifying the hose violent criminals, it was called project safe neighborhood when new attorney general came in, she tore that ram apart, removed the relationship and so many of the layses that we had, and didn't keep the same commitment, that had a real dramatic impact on inner city
7:37 am
violence. i think that is kind of thing that congressman evans talks about working together. we did it. then it was disa em isled, project safe neighborhood was disa em isled at a later period of time. if i have a president coming in and say i want a re commitment to that i'm looking forward to it. >> it is more than just ram when it comes to dealing with our homicide. we are mentions law enforcement, hair jim kenney had to say. he said that president trump's comments insulted our philadelphia police department , here it is. >> he had row pencety to do it he doesn't care about the truth. i to feel badly natalie men and women of the philadelphia police department who dedicate themselves to driving down our crime rate and laying their lives on the the line are standing out on the sidewalk on the street protecting him, and he ken greats them. >> congressman meehan your response. >> look, i told you, i have a great tiehl have respect for police tell. i have work hand and hand with the men and women in blue. i think they to a tremendous
7:38 am
job. the work that they to can help to influence the problem but issues are much larger than the police force. issues that are factors nobody has talk about in 900 plus heroin deaths right here in the city of philadelphia, in the the last year. people are concerned about the growing issues like that. things natalie the police can have have some influence on but as -- it is a bigger issue too. when you hear the president says i care about the people, i care about these issues, i think that is what people to seized on, to know that he wants to utilize the resources to focus in on those areas. >> i would say to that is by repealing the affordable care act it will not help a a trust the very same issue that you are raising, pat and i think you and i both know repealing the affordable care act in my view would take a was aspect of treatment to those very same people. we both know that there needs
7:39 am

8:16 am
hashing for this movie. they have been around since 2002. i was a big fan of these films back when i was in high school , college. they were fun, mindless dumb zombie action movies essentially. this sixth movie called final chapter i taught it will be the last one. they say it will be. then it won't be. but i think the closure of this film really ties back to the first hoff any 2002 and for me that work as a fan. i to think scripts are really bad. action scenes are what sells these movies. i will say i paid $20.49 to see this movie last night in i max 3-d. not worth it at all. waste of an extra six dollars. if you see it, see a math the in a. i did speak with milla, who was a star, and back in the first one there was a famous scene in the hallway with these lasers. they bring it back in this one her husband who direct the movie told me they had a broom they were using in the hallway to uses a double for lasers,
8:17 am
watch this. >> we would do the stunt and then, you know, they would bring like a pole. i don't remember if it was a broom. >> the film making secret is it is me with the broom handle >> are you kidding me. >> to show the handle. >> did they bring back the same sets or recreate it. >> recreated it. >> fifteen years ago it looked super modern. we are trying to recreate it. and then look at these, they have cords. >> yes. it just looks so different. >> so, i'm geeking out most when you are spinning under the bridge. >> the film, was three out of five. worth seeing if you are a fan with the franchise. high full conversation will be available on my twitter which is kevin mccarthey tv. >> the next film a dog's purpose. i'm interested to see what you have to say about this one. there has been a big controversy surrounding it. >> yeah, listen, before i get to the controversy the story
8:18 am
line in this movie is very interesting, a k-9 spirit that continues living on, multiple lifetimes intive rent dogs bodies. that is a cool concept but the problem with that conn president the is you have to watch the dog die multiple times in the movie. that to me was hard because my wife and i, we have a rescue dog, dogs are everything to us if you ever want to see a grown man ugly cry put marley and me in front of me and i will lose it, that movie destroyed me. but regarding the controversy if you have seen the video that tmz released the with the german shepherd. idea behind the video as you can see it appears natalie shepherd is being forced in the water. there is two sides to every story. i'm not detending the video. it is very hard to watch. i found myself watching it and being horrified. there is two side. it hasn't been fully investigated. i think movie toss have interesting things to say about the connection between human and dogs. when you get to that scene in
8:19 am
the film with the german shepherd in the water it is hard this is to think about that. when you go to the movie just know that you may have a hard time separating that. it depend on how you watch the movie yourself. i found the film to be entertaining, in the first and last part of the movie, hid will section to me was a little bit slow. the didn't connect as well but overall it is three and a half out of five. just know going in it is a very hard film to watch. my wife was crying. it depend how you want to feel >> well, thanks forewarning us then. >> yes, just go and just cry and feel bad. >> it is one of those good cr ies, you watch the film, there is moments in the film when you are feeling sad and they turn it back to happy but i think it is strange to say but i agree with this. i have a harder time watching animal characters getting hurt more than human. we are tea sensitized to hugh hans and films. it is all make belief but something about a animal that is just so hard to watch.
8:20 am
movie works. it just depend if you can separate two from the video that came out. >> thanks, have a great weekend? cool, thanks, guys. >> women and parent of little girls, listen to this, new studies out there shedding light on young girls and their self esteem. wait until you hear this you want to tell your daughter how smart they are. we will tell you why. also more controversy with this one, so ugly in this divorce situation, we are talking about paula path the on, right there, robin thick may not see see his son for a while. we have the latest on the custody battle. why she may be in trouble as well.

8:24 am
son. >> just so unfortunate to see this going on. whenever these battles turn ugly. you have to think about the the kid and what they are going through and what this must be like for them. >> sometimes kid are pawns in the middle and grown ups trying to hurt each other. lets talk about another high profile divorce situation >> brad pitt and angelina jolie. what is the real reason? new documentary promises to reveal this. >> we have to dish on this one investigative journalist iain halperthis and chronicled the relationship in the film. he says he has lots of things to expose and juicy details. he said they have been estrange for more than a year before they finally split in september, it was well before that. so there may be more to this story. source telling sun newspaper, british newspaper there are a lot of secrets coming out with this one. we will all stay tune. >> wonder where it will air if it will be something you catch

fios is not cable. we're wired differently. which means we can deliver internet speeds differently. welcome to 8 and a half maple street. it's half a house. and even though it only has half the headroom, half a hallway, half the closet space and a half bath, it's a full house to the wilsons. because they have fios, the only 100% fiber optic network with uploads as fast as downloads, their half house has full internet. cable only offers upload speeds that are a fraction of their downloads. now you might think it's a little odd that the wilsons have a half house, but they think it's a little odd to pay for uploads that aren't up to speed. get 150 meg internet with equal uploads and downloads, tv and phone for only $79.99 per month online for one year. cable can't offer speeds this fast at a price this good. only fios can.

8:39 am
welcome back, time is 8:39 president trump was in philadelphia his first visit outside washington since taking office. trump met with congressional republicans laying out plans for his administration. let's bring in chris wallace, anchor of "fox news" sunday, he is covering it all, good to see you, chris. president trump gave a campaign style speech, a pep rally here in philadelphia, he left without taking questions from his fellow republicans. we didn't second him too. to you get the a sense they are all on the same page thousand. >> relatively thinking, i think on some specific issues there are some members of the congress who get heartburn over some of the things the natalie president is advancing but overall, after an eight years of trying to pass things and having them block in the tell i can senate or blocked by president obama i think they are pretty excited of the eye tea they hey be able to turn their eye tease into law.
8:40 am
i think as i say for the few notable exceptions, there is a lot of unity in the republican party, both on end of pennsylvania avenue. thousand they will be moving forward with trump's campaign promises. i will talk about something he said regarding mexico's president. what has been reaction of the cancelled heating between trump and net the owe. >> well, they are substantial. one thing as a candidate and talk about building a wall and make mexico pay for it. but when start saying it as president and you have an order, executive order to begin building the wall, you know, this creates big problems, and it is almost a issue of, matter of national honor, this mexico. it is almost impossible for the mexican president, a government to negotiate right now with the united states because they feel like they have been disrespected. and when you talk about the possibility of some kind of a trade war may be over stating
8:41 am
it but some kind of trade controversy, this is a big tiehl. we have billions of dollars in trade every year with mexico. they are one of our top trading partners and just, for instance if we start putting a 20 percent tax, as was suggested yesterday by somebody at the white house on everything that comes out of mexico in this to this country mexico will not be paying it, we will be paying it, consumers, all of those mexican goods with a 20 percent tax means it will be that much more expensive when you go into your stores. so, this is a big issue, a complicated issue. it is interesting to see how president trump deals with it. it is not the just campaign rhetoric. >> who is going to pay for the wall. what is coming up on the program "fox news" sunday. >> we will talk about all of these things, with the counselor to the president, kelly ann conway one of his top advisors. we will talk to one of the top tells in the senate, senator dick durbin number two democrat in the senate because these issues the president, even with a republican
