3:00 am
and this had everyone talking last night around social media. what exactly was going on with the brokered convention? using hungry, hungry hippos to explain the brokered convention. guys, social media. >> so creative. >> that's right. >> i need to hire some folks. thank you. >> thank you. >> great to see you. >> that wraps it up for us. nice to have you here. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> have a good day. >> bye. our country is in serious, serious trouble. it's a bubble, and it's going explode. >> the answer is not simply to yell china bad, muslims bad. you've got to understand the nature of the threats we're facing. >> presidents can't just say anything they want. they have consequences here and around the world. >> i have to tell you this -- i don't believe there is any long-term permanent peace solution. >> we don't fight like we used to fight. we used to fight to win. now we fight for no reason whatsoever. >> if you're fed up with washington, the question you ought to be asking is who's willing to take on washington.
3:01 am
>> i absolutely will blow the whistle and begin to stand up for the american worker. >> i'm not interested in being politically correct. i'm interested in being correct. well, last night it was the 12th debate. it wasn't the dirty dozen. it was a nice talk to two of th men who were on the stage, donald trump and marco rubio will join us live on this here telecast. we did invite john kasich and did invite ted cruz. we invite them every day. they have other stuff to do this morning. they will not be appearing. we invited bernie sanders and hillary clinton. we invited all the candidates -- >> every day. >> we'll check our voicemail throughout the show. if any of the candidates are watching, call, leave a number. we'll call you right back. anyway, republican candidates going back to basics, setting personal attacks aside and focusing on policy. at last night's debate in florida. >> phil keeping is live in miami with more on the subdued debate details. good morning to you, phil.
3:02 am
>> reporter: good morning, everybody. on the home campus of the miami hurricanes, surprisingly no tropical storms on the stage last night. substance and civility dominating the 12th debate in the republican presidential primary circuit. billionaire businessman donald trump even remarking on the stage at how civil everybody was. and the candidates, though, however, did make their points. >> if there were only two of us that have a path to winning the nomination, donald and myself. >> the great thing about politics, the reason why we watch it, is what's true today is not necessarily true tomorrow. so let's not get ahead of ourselves. >> i think, frankly, the republican establishment or whatever you want to call it should embrace what's happening. we're having millions of extra people join. we are going to beat the democrats. we're going to beat hillary or whoever it may be. and we're going to beat them soundly. >> cuba stops putting people in
3:03 am
jail for speaking out. [ applause ] >> cuba has freedom of the press. cuba takes all of those fugitives of american justice, including that cop killer from new jersey, and send her back to the united states and to jail where she belongs. you know what, then we can have a relationship with cuba. [ applause ] >> that's a good deal. >> thank you. >> florida's home state senator marco rubio spending about $7 million in tv advertising in florida over the past couple of weeks. it suggests that he is whittling down donald trump's lead which had been 20-plus points. a new suffolk university poll shows frump at 36% followed by -- trump at 36% followed by cruz and kasich. in a poll from florida, it shows trump ahead but just by seven points over rubio, followed by cruz and kasich. of course, florida's got 99 delegates at stake. it's a winner-take-all state on tuesday. and there's a lot of voter interest, that's for sure. and 1.5 million registered floridians have already voted
3:04 am
early. back to you. >> thank you very much. >> interesting. now you know why when you see the last poll why i think donald trump and marco rubio up early. they know that florida's going to be the decider the next few days. >> absolutely. this could actually help. 9:00 this morning, over at the country club that donald trump owns, look at that. dr. ben carson is going to officially endorse donald trump. if you're keeping track at home, that means two of his former rivals. you got chris christie and now carson. both on the trump train. >> a lot of people saying this is a big deal because, like you said, he was one of the candidates at one point. a lot of people trust him. and he left the candidacy, he doesn't have a political agenda, a lot of people saying. this might be it for him for politics. so when he backs someone, people take notice. they like him. they trust him. >> i think so, too. i also thought it was interesting, ben carson said the person you know, donald trump behind the scenes, is a lot
3:05 am
different than the one you see in public. he says that thoughtful demeanor is the reason why he's going to come out today and do what he's going to. do i also thought it was interesting last night when you saw -- when you see the fact that ben carson's going to endorse, you wonder what -- you saw senator mike lee endorse ted cruz. if he has the leverage, you do that or sit out -- >> who would he endorse? >> i don't know. rubio perhaps because he mentored him. >> marco rubio said yesterday or two days ago, he said, we've talked on the phone several times. we've been discussing things. yet, they went after each other during the campaign. yes, jeb bush allegedly taught marco everything he knows about politics. they were friends. who knows if they still are. >> two things real quick. brief is before the debate made news when he said, look, let's get this clear. whoever wins we're backing as a party. number two, before that, he did an interview and said you understand something, you have to get to 1,234.
3:06 am
that's the election law. you cannot stop early and say, oh, you got 900 delegates, 1,000, that's good enough. the election law says here's your threshold, follow through with it. >> yeah. 1,237. >> donald trump with ted cruz or marco rubio or governor kasich has to get to the threshold. >> the question is if you don't quite get there before the convention, then what happens? that is a real possibility. and now they're starting to plan for it. something that happened the day before the debate was donald trump was on cnn, and he said to anderson cooper essentially that islam hates us. jake tapper last night who did a fine job moderating the debate asked the donald if he still felt that way. and the donald doubled down on it. watch this. >> last night you told cnn, "islam hates us." did you mean all 1.6 billion muslims? >> i mean a lot of them. i mean a lot of them. [ laughter ] >> i've been watching the debate tonight, and they're talking about radical islamic terrorism
3:07 am
or radical islam. but i will tell you, there's something going on that maybe you don't know about and maybe a lot of other people don't know about. there's tremendous hatred. i will stick with exactly what i said to anderson cooper. >> i know people find apeele peel in things donald says because he says things they wish they could say. the president can't say anything they want. it has consequences here and around the world. >> we've had consequences including airplanes flying into the world trade center, the pentagon, and could have been the white house. >> so on display, you've got a p.c. answer and a non-p.c. answer. >> marco rubio says presidents can't just say anything they want. a lot of people like trump because he doesn't care about being p.c. >> marco rubio scored. he's 100% right. as president, you can't say anything you want. the bottom line, our greatest ally in the war against radical islam had been the kurds who are, by the way, muslim. without them, no one would be fighting over there. we'd be sitting there just using drones. >> so if you were trying to
3:08 am
figure out if you wanted to do a thumbnail of each of the candidates, you would probably say donald trump wanted to appear presidential last night. he did. marco rubio wanted to recover from when he went through that insult stage. he did a solid performance. >> insult stage? >> have you gone through that yet, ainsley? >> she's two weeks into it. >> give me some time. >> yeah, ted cruz, he -- you know, he was solid as he always is. >> he was really good. >> a masterful -- >> did you enjoy debate? some people are saying it was boring. >> look, it was sober, but it was dull. so are we sober. >> how about this -- it started so late. it was supposed to start at 8:30. so -- >> it wasn't. it was always going to start at 9:00. >> the count down -- >> cnn lied to us. >> they said 8:30. >> they wanted you to stick around and watch the coverage. i was like, should i get ready for bed now? i mean, when is this debate going to start in then i went to the bathroom, started getting ready for bed. came out, 15 minutes later, still hadn't started.
3:09 am
good thing i got ready. >> i ran from dairy queen at 8:20 last night to get home in time. >> you didn't have to run after all. >> i didn't. >> you ran off the dairy queen. that was good. >> steve, you must have had nightmares. more in a moment. does sugar get him high at night? and weighing in on why the debate was so friendly with megyn kelly. >> i was stunned, shocked that cruz and rubio both whiffed on that question. kasich didn't take it up. they all ducked the question. instead of saying donald trump has created an atmosphere in which he incites team greater rage and he talked about -- in a seemingly understanding way that he said it was because of bad trade deals or whatever, but that people are angry, and sometimes it's going to spill out. that those guys on that stage didn't take trouump to take on that. i thought was reflective of an overall weak performance on everybody's part when it came to holding trump to account. >> so by that measure, trump
3:10 am
probably about d -- probably did a fraction better than everybody else. it was a chance. we'll have donald trump on in about an hour and will ask, was that the last time you will debate the republicans. >> there's a possibility it was. >> yeah, there's a possibility. we have one in utah. hopefully he won't bail on that. >> you never know. we don't know if marco rubio is going to be there. we don't know if john kasich will be there. heather is here with us. did you stay up and watch the debate? >> i sure did. then i got up this morning and watched more, and i was getting tired last night. >> i know. right? it start too late. >> with us kids, we need it to start at 5:00. >> exactly! >> dinner at 3:00, debate at 5:00. >> everybody, hope you're off to a great day. i've got news out of new mexico. there is a massive manhunt underway at this hour for two violent inmates including a convicted murderer who escaped a prison transport van. police in the albuquerque area coming close to catching jessup cruz and lionel claw. they acted on a tip.
3:11 am
they followed a car, but two men and a woman jumped out and started running. that woman is now being questioned. the inmates mean? some surveillance photos are wearing white prisoner jumpsuits and bound by shackles. at least they were. it's not clear yet how they escaped. we'll keep you post on. this. another fox news alert now. we first told you about an escaped murderer in mississippi last week. this morning, he is now dead after he tried commit another crime. police say that rafael mcleod broke into the vicksburg, mississippi, home yesterday morning. once inside, he tied up a man, his wife, and their 4-year-old child. one of the homeowners eventually breaking loose, grabbing the gun, their gun, and then shooting mcleod in the head. police aren't say figure it was the man or the woman who shot him. listen -- >> they sustained injuries, non-life-threatening. the wife did not sustain any injuries that required medical, nor did the 4-year-old child.
3:12 am
>> terrifying. a 4-year-old child. mcleod broke out of jail last wednesday by using a homemade shank. he was in jail on rape and murder charges. the justice department now blaming iran for a cyberattack on a new york dam. in 2013, you may recall this story, hackers accessing the central control system at the bauman dam. it allows them to get into the dam for flood control. iran responsible. happening today, a final good-bye to former first lady nancy reagan. she will be laid to rest at the reagan presidential library in simi valley, california, next to her husband, president ronald reagan. big names are expected there to pay their respects including first lady michelle obama, hillary clinton, george and laura bush, arnold schwarzenegger, wayne newton, and tom selleck among others. president obama, however, will not be in attendance. he will speak at the music and film festival in atlanta -- in

and i quit smoking with i'm chantix. i decided to take chantix to shut everybody else up about me quitting smoking. i was going to give it a try, but i didn't really think it was going to really happen. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history
3:32 am
of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. being a non-smoker feels great. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. senator cruz, if you overtake donald trump at the convention, what will you do to keep his passionate supporters from bolting the convention and sabotaging the fall election? >> look, there's some folks in washington -- >> and be president?

3:34 am
>> we have more live from washington, d.c. good morning, rich. >> reporter: good morning, its mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors, and in doing so, it spent millions of dollars on extravagant parties and travel. this is according to a cbs news investigation. as a result, the board of directors has fired chief executive officer steven nardizzi and chief operating officer al giordano. former employees said the excessive spending began when nardizi began in 2009. they said spending on conferences and meetings went from $1.7 million in 2010 to $26 million in 2014. it also claims the wounded warrior project dedicated 40% to 50% of its spending on overhead including parties. it says other veterans' charities have overhead cost of 10% to 15%. in response, the charity says of the $26 million it spent on conferences and events in one fiscal year, about 94% was
3:35 am
associated with programs, services delivered to wounded warriors and their families. though it acknowledges it is changing its rules. in a statement, the wounded warrior project says, "wwp has already begun to strengthen its employee travel policies to more explicitly limit domestic air travel economy class, absent an exception for health or disability reasons." charity navigator evaluates charities and their spending, it granted the wounded warrior project three stars out of four for the fiscal year ending in september, 2014. back to you. >> all right. reporting live on the wounded warrior -- it is a scandal. you know, you can hope that now things will change and people will continue -- >> we hope so. >> i'll tell you this -- the proceeds from both of my books went to wounded warrior foundation. >> all i can tell you is i've hosted -- i think i've known them eight to ten years. i've hosted the last seven courage award winners at the waldorf. a know a lot of people on the board. those guys have been nothing but
3:36 am
upstanding. of course, i haven't done an autopsy on their books. evidently cbs does. but you know, i have -- i know these guys exceedingly well. and in fact, i was set to host the dinner next month. i don't know what's happening. >> ultimately, their hearts have to be in a good place because they're doing this for the warriors. the problem is, the people who -- the people who suffer the most when an organization like this goes down or has something like this happen, it's the wounded warriors. >> right. >> and because as rich detailed right there, they were spending 40% to 50%. every dollar people sent in, 40 to 50 cents on every dollar went to the front was or parties. too much. >> when bill o'reilly was doing a series on that, they went out of their way to have a counterargument to this. they felt as though they were not getting a fair shake. of course, i got up this morning and see that these two guys got fired. >> maybe the parties they were spending on were for the wounded warriors who deserve great parties and fun in their lives.
3:37 am
>> we will continue the kofrgz that as we learn more details. in the meantime, heather's got news at 24 minutes before the top of the hour. >> i do. good morning to all of you. the video i'm about to show you will leave you short of breath. it is the moment this a propane tank explodes. take a look at this. >> oh, my god! >> oh, no! >> massive explosion happening there at a construction site near cleveland, ohio. not clear exactly what sparked that fire and explosion. and amazingly nobody was hurt, thank goodness for that. another incredible story to bring you now. two sisters who were taken. they were nabbed while they were waiting for their school bus, now found safe after missing nearly a year. kiley and shailene fourtner were found less than ten miles away from their upstate new york foster home. police got a phone tip that said they were being held against their will by a family friend.

five people including a 6-year-old girl. we have more of the rain. really incredible. i mean, they picked up more than a foot of rain out there across places like louisiana, and the rain is still coming down. not only in louisiana but across parts of mississippi where we continue to see that threat for flooding. taking a look at the broader picture across the nation, you see we have kind of a swirl over texas. that's a large area of low pressure that's helping to pump up that moisture into those areas along parts of the gulf coast and the lower mississippi valley. so we expect this to be the trend throughout the day today. expecting to see several more inches of rain. and because the ground is already saturated, because we have flooding ongoing, that's going to be worsening the situation out there. we have a number of warnings and watches that remain in effect across the region. otherwise, across the eastern u.s., we've been enjoying incredibly warm temperatures that have either been setting records or getting close to them. and you see in the southeast, it's going to be another warm one. temperatures into the 70s and 80s. cooler across the northeast.

3:46 am
socialized medicine we're talking about here, medicare for all, medicare for all, is like what the canadian system, it may save money. i grant him that. the positive side to this is it would probably be cheaper than the current obamacare behemoth, which is going to be over a trillion dollars a year soon. and medicare, over $600 billion a year. our health care dollar is $3 trillion a year. so we're hemorrhaging. this is cheaper, but the question is what's it going to do in terms of quality of care? >> let's talk about canada where they have socialized medicine, what bernie sanders wants to bring to the united states. what do you think about that as a physician? >> perfect model to use. canada, three months waiting line for a hip replacement. how would you feel about that sneer you need a hip. three months in canada. >> what about chemotherapy? you might run out of time. >> you might not get the chemotherapy you need. personalized medicine is not in place under socialized medicine. in other words, the brand-new chemo that we've been talking about, that president carter uses for his melanoma, might not be able to get that in canada.
3:47 am
cardiac stents, emergency procedures, over a month waiting line in canada. physician shortages are a huge problem -- >> what about your doctor would? you be able to use your doctor? >> you can't keep your doctor now. wait until under socialized medicine. doctors are dropping out of medicare by the droves. it's hard for our elderly to even find a physician or their physician. many are retiring, many are leaving medicare. if we make medicare for all, there's going to be even more of a doctor shortage. you'll get the doctor assistant or nurse practitioner, whatever's available. you're not going to have the same quality of care. >> you wanted to talk about taxes this morning. >> exactly. so how bernie going to pay for the system? he'll cut down on premiums for sure. did you know that your employer will have to pay a 6.7% payroll tax? right now, health insurance is a benefit. so it's a deduction for the employer. it's -- he's going to be hit with a 6.7% payroll tax. you can have a 2.2% income tax

4:02 am
night after. because people want to hear about what you thought you did. we know you were trailing in some polls by eight or 20. did you knock it out of the park? >> well, we feel good about our chapsss here in florida. what's happening as well a growing number of voters here in the state are starting to realize -- there are some people, they're not large numbers of people, but there are voters here that are supporting ted cruz and john kasich and they're realizing the only one who can beat donald trump is marco rubio. they realize a vote for kasich and cruz in florida is in essence a vote for donald trump. i feel good about that going into tuesday. >> well, how about the fact, senator, while last night was a sober discussion on policies some are saying, you know, kasich and rubio and cruz missed the opportunity. trump is clearly the front-runner across the country. and nobody really went after
4:03 am
him. i'm not talking about insults but i'm talking about substantive differences on how to lead the country. >> well, i think that actually did happen. on policy after policy issue for example when i had the opportunity, i tried to explain why donald's answer on an issue was not the right approach. but there's no winning here, right? if you have a debate where everyone is going after each other people say they don't like it. if we have a debate that we're debating issues people say it's too boring. the bottom line, this is not a sport, this is not entertainment. debates are not entertaining people, but about informing people. we're talking about the president of the united states. the most powerful commander in the biggest military of all time and we have to elect someone who isn't just entertaining but someone when they get there are able to do the job well. a lot is at stake here. i hope that's what people saw last night. >> something that's at stake for my generation is social security. people are saying we'll run out of money. you have said that. i want to listen to what you
4:04 am
challenged donald trump on last night and then get your reaction. let's take a listen. >> social security can stay the way it is, is lying. any politician that says we don't have do anything, all we have to do is raise a few taxes or leave it the way it is, they're not being honest with you. social security will go bankrupt and it will bankrupt our country with it. it will be debilitating to our economy and our children deserve better than to inherit a debt crisis. >> it's my intention to leave social security the way it is. not to increase the age. i want to leave it as is, i want to make is our country rich again so we can afford it. >> is that possible to leave it as is it? >> it is not possible. it is not possible. and that is the problem that we're having. that for far too long that's been the attitude that people have taken, so every year social security goes further and further into debt and closer and closer into crisis. what i mean by crisis, not just social security but the debt right now.
4:05 am
and that means people like me, i'll be 45 in may. there is no way my social security works the same way as it did for my parents. >> sure. >> it either won't exist or we make some changes to it and there are not unreasonable changes but we have to make them now. anyone who i is as differently is simply misleading you. it's not true. >> one of the changes you detailed last night is start raising the retirement age to 67, 68, 69, top out at 70, right? >> for future generations. that's already happening. it's going to up to 67. the way it's structured now, i'm supposed to retire at 67. i may have to retire at 68. that's not too much to ask of us, my generation, in e -- exchange for leaving the social security the way it is for our parents and grandparents and saving it for future generations. >> trump said that islam hates us. this is the two of you talking about that and then i'll have a
4:06 am
question for you. let's listen. >> i know that a lot of people find appeal in the things that donald says because he says what people wish they could say. the president is that presidents can't say anything they want. it has consequences. here and around the world. >> marco talks about kons quensss. well, we have had a lot of consequences including airplanes flying into the world trade center, the pentagon and could have been the white house. i don't want to be so politically correct. i like to solve problems. we have a serious, serious problem of hate. >> see, i'm not interested in being politically correct. i'm not interested in being politically correct, i'm interested in being correct. >> all right. senator, words, you're right, do have consequences. you do have responsibilities to the people you represent when you're the president. but the voters, what do you say to them who are tired of the pc rhetoric and they like donald trump for saying exactly what they're thinking? what's your response to that? >> well, first of all, i think it's important to be correct. the bottom line is yes, does islam have a radicalization
4:07 am
problem, it absolutely does. it's also correct to say there are americans who are muslims who serve this country in uniform and love the united states of america. there are muslims who have died in service to this country and there are muslims around this world that protected our men and women in uniform. interpreters on the ground. gave the story of a couple who are missionaries in a muslim country and how they rely on the muslim families to protect them. and so, look, i think it's very -- when someone who is running for president or is going to be president casts the blanket statements, what you do is you lose the focus on what we should be focused on which is radical islam. radicalization of islam is a serious problem globally. that needs to be confronted but i don't think it's correct to say that all muslims hate america. that's not true. >> but the -- you know, people who are watching right now and people who are watching last night, senator, say, well, the thing about what trump is saying is whatever we're doing right now, it just isn't working.
4:08 am
>> well, what we're doing right now is not enough. that's why it's not working. but saying all muslims hate america is not doing to make things better. it is inaccurate. the fact is that if we wanted to defeat radical islam, we have to work with the muslims together. when they say to arm the kurds or they say to work with the sunnis in that region those are muslims. when they talk about vote -- working with egypt and saudi arabia and jordan, those are muslims. when we talk about confronting radicals out there and using local tribes to reject isis, those are muslims that we need to work with. so my point is, i think it's important to have a president that tells you the truth. and the truth is, there is a serious problem of radicalization in islam and need to defeat it and there are muslims that are not radicalized who we need to work with to make that happen. >> a great point. let's look at a couple of polls. you had the fox news poll, it
4:09 am
had you trailing by 23 points. 43-20 with cruz getting 16 right on your heels. however, "the washington post" and univision did a poll, you're right there. much different story. 38-31 and cruz -- >> within the margin of error. >> within the margin of error. what a huge difference about two credible organizations in the same state. in that same poll, senator, before you comment, 60% say that florida republicans say that if you do not win your state, that you should drop out. your answer? >> yeah, look, when i ran for the u.s. senate five years ago i ran against the incumbent sitting governor of florida. i was like up 4% in the polls and he had an 80% approval rating. polls are polls, they change all the time. the only poll that matters is the one on tuesday. all i can tell you we're working hard every single day. we feel good about our campaign. i feel very good about the momentum and the progress.
4:10 am
voters will make their decision on today. i believe we'll win florida and i have great optimism about our campaign moving forward. i can't control polls and i certainly can't live by them and i don't make my decisions based on them. >> senator, two hours from right now, dr. ben carson is going to join donald trump on the stage in palm beach and say that i have looked over the field of remaining candidates. i'm going with trump. had you reached out to dr. carson and how do you feel about his endorsement? >> well, i spoke to him on the day that they announced that he would be suspending his campaign and we had a good conversation. and i don't think we -- i don't remember speaking since then. but everyone going to get endorsements in this race. i have more than my fair share of endorsement, multiple governor, south carolina's governor, new mexico, north carolina. we have a great group of people that have endorsed us. we have most -- i have more senate endorsements than anybody else. a lot of congressional members have endorsed me. it shows you can bring people
4:11 am
together. everyone is going to get their share of endorsements. i respect ben carson very much. he made what he thought was the right decision. i don't think that's how voters will make their decisions here in florida. look, i think a growing number of florida voters have realized that even the ones that are supporting john kasich and ted cruz that don't want it to be donald trump are realizing that neither one of those guys has a chance to win in florida. ted cruz is not going to win florida. john kasich is not going to win florida. if you don't want to be trump to be the nominee, a vote for john kasich or ted cruz is a vote for donald trump. i think you will see more of the voters come our way as well. >> what did your mom say about your performance? >> she was happy with it. >> i'm sure she's glad you're back home. >> it was great to be in miami, in front of so many family and friends and it was really -- we enjoyed doing it very much. we look forward to next one. >> well, you're in the homestretch. >> thanks for waking up this

. fox news alert on a friday. a final farewell to former first lady nancy reagan as she's laid to rest at the reagan presidential library in simi valley, california. >> adam housley is there as he has been all week. what can we expect today? >> reporter: well, today's ceremony begins at about 2:00 eastern. so 11:00 local time. expected to be on -- they say it will be an hour and a half, you know it will be longer than that. about a thousand guests will be here for the event to say good-bye to mrs. reagan and then she'll be buried at a sundown ceremony next to her husband, nearly 11 1/2 years after being laid to rest here. it comes after two days that the public got to pay here and pay their final respects to mrs. reagan. they had to extend hours both days and buses, nearly 6,000 came here. they had local law enforcement stand guard. they had a changing of a guard
4:19 am
like on national level. quite an impressive moment to go through there. the dosants gave you a chance to pay your respects, and it was a poignant moment for many who had a chance to go through there. when you talked to those who are helping plan this, here at the reagan library, people who knew mrs. reagan very well, not only did they say she took a -- she was very much involved in this process, but they'll tell you they didn't know how the public would come considering it's been such a long time since the reagans were in the white house. take a listen. >> you know, we didn't know what to expect. obviously, president reagan is a former president had hundreds of thousands, but we were hoping for the best and to have 5,000, 6,000 people come up, it touched us very greatly. >> reporter: once again, the former first lady lies in repose here for two days and the ceremony is taking place out back. they had to put up a tent because there's a chance for

time now for your "news by the numbers." you'll love this story. two cents. that is how much the price of stamps is dropping. on april 10th. the price of stamps has not dropped in nearly 100 years. and nearly $1 trillion, that's how much americans racked up in credit card debt last
4:25 am
year. finally, $950 million of tax funds not being taken about or the forfeited. with 99 delegates up for grabs in florida next week, how did last night's debate affect the voters in the sunshine state with so much on the line? frank luntzs asked that very question. he join us from miami, where he did yeoman's work for megyn 20 minutes ago. welcome back. first off, such a different feel to that debate. is that what you put to your focus group? >> yeah, i wanted to ask them because the last debate they were so critical, so hostile and angry at the candidates for what they did. this time, they absolutely loved the substance. they loved the style. they loved the candidates. and we've got a clip to show you that proves it. >> i want a word or phrase to describe tonight's debate. >> informative. >> presidential. >> substance. >> civil. >> key players. >> seriously, took the challenge and delivered.
4:26 am
>> inspiring. >> what was so powerful? >> you watch tonight, they're spending less time talking to the counterparts. >> i wasn't afraid to look at the television, i was engaged in what was going on because it was presidential. professional. >> are you a mom? >> yes, i am. >> were you concerned about your kids watching the other debate? >> i was. >> what about tonight? >> not tonight. >> what was the difference? >> more substantive and professional. it told us a little bit more about the candidates and a little bit more detail about what they believe and what they want for america. >> that's what i got too. >> it was pretty good. the thing is that every candidate went up. i never had this in any of the debates in 2016. they felt better about rubio and cruz and kasich and about trump. in fact, this is donald trump's best performance to date. that there was none of the negativity because there was none of the fighting. they really felt he was dealing with substance, with issues this time. so they all did well. >> yeah.
4:27 am
so you actually asked the group to grade trump's performance in a word or two. so let's look. >> in a global economy, donald trump understands the challenges that american businesses face. and he seems to have the power and the knowledge on how to deal with those challenges. >> you sound like a trump supporter. >> yes, sir. >> one more in the back. >> he actually this time gave us specifics. he acted presidential. he acted like he knew what he was talking about. he did a really good job on that. >> how many of you thought trump sounded presidential tonight? almost all of you. . >> pretty good. >> even people who weren't voting for him had a positive reaction. the guy who spoke first in the front i'm convinced that he actually beat up at least half a dozen of those participants before they went on the air. that guy was tough. every candidate -- every candidate's got to feel good about last night. and actually, if those are the debates then the republicans
4:28 am
should be having more of them. >> well, frank too, i guess reince prebus they agreed to stop cutting each other off and donald trump's opening remarks were about bringing the party together you got a sense this was going to be different. but did trump do enough to take ohio and florida and leave only ted cruz stand? >> that's the $64,000 question. the polls show that trump is winning in florida and that trump and kasich are too close to call in ohio. do candidates overperform? you know, i never duck any of the questions particular will i from you. this one, ohio is too close to call. and marco really did help himself in florida. but the gap between trump and rubio was so big that i don't know if he'll be able to close it. and ohio, kasich has a slight advantage even though some of the polls are showing trump up by a couple of points. >> he did lock up urban meyer
4:29 am
last night. great work last night and this morning. >> thank you. you heard what voters think about the debate. let's ask donald trump. he'll be joining us live with his reaction up. then, this is truly man's best friend. a man gets stuck in the mud for hours. but his dog never left his side. the amazing video accompanied by music from queen. wildlife rescue workers open up a lot of dawn. tough on grease...yet gentle. dawn helps open... something even bigger. go to facebook.com, dawn saves wildlife.

...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose

asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. or building the best houses in town. or becoming the next highly-unlikely dotcom superstar. and us, we'll be right there with you, helping with the questions you need answered to get your brand new business started. we're legalzoom and we've already partnered with over a million new business owners to do just that. check us out today to see how you can become one of them. legalzoom. legal help is here.

millions and millions of people are going out to the polls and they're voting. they're voting out of enthusiasm. they're voting out of love. i think frankly the republican establishment or whatever you want to call it should embrace what's happening. we're all in this together. we' we're going to come up with solutions and come up with things and i can't believe how civil it's been up here. >> okay.
4:33 am
so last night was the 12th debate of the republican candidates. but it wasn't the dirty dozen. it was actually very staid if you will. there was a lot of policy discussion. we got a lot of answers we hadn't heard and people were polite. >> but steve, i think that's a lot from reince priebus and shawn spicer -- >> there's probably a stephen spicer out there. >> but the other thing was, i think it's also important as i pointed out earlier that reince priebus said according to election law, you have to get to 1,234. it's not up to somebody else to say you're close -- >> 1,237? >> 1,237. you have to get to that threshold. >> if going in though, nobody has that number, but let's say donald trump is way ahead. then what happens? then you have this contested election process. and you don't know what's going
4:34 am
to happen in the second ballot. that's really -- we're getting into areas we haven't seen in generations and that is the big concern because let's say donald trump has got 45% and then ted cruz has got 35%. then what happens on the second ballot? >> you're right. but these are the rules. it's not -- if they make the rules up on the fly, if they collude to stop one man -- >> which is the fear. >> we'll learn a lot next week. we've got ohio and florida coming up. >> winner take all. >> i thought it was very civil and donald trump even said in the middle of the debate, so far i can't believe how civil it has been up here and the whole audience laughed. >> donald trump will be here in a moment. but before that, we join heather with the fox news alert. >> yes, good morning. we are watching the weather very closely down south this morning. a severe weather alert. the flooding in louisiana has gotten so bad, look at this. you can see the fish actually swimming through the streets. thousands of people at this hour under mandatory evacuations. but the water has gotten so high that the national guard has been
4:35 am
sent to help families leave their homes safely. historic rainfall claiming the lives of at least five people including a 6-year-old little girl. ten states in total are under flood watches reaching from the gulf up to boston. forecasts expect that flooding to continue into next week. i hope everybody makes it out safely. president obama's anticipated list of supreme court nominee finalist, four of the five finalists donated to president obama's political campaigns. each one gave somewhere between $400 and about $4,000. senate republicans vowing not to hold confirmation hearings for anyone nominated by the white house. well, at least until next year. look at this incredible video. a packed commuter train running with the doors wide open. this video coming out of the philippines. passengers stand just inches from the edge of the car as the train speeds along the tracks.
4:36 am
it passes by multiple stations as people waiting look up in shock. the rail company ended up seeing this video. they say they're now investigating. figuring out what happened. i don't know. why don't they move away? maybe it's so packed they couldn't. proof once again that dogs are man's best friend. a guy in the u.k. got stuck in a muddy bog for seven hours while hiking and his dog holly blue never left his side, despite freezing temperatures. a rescue helicopter found them using infrared cameras. they are now both doing well. and those are your headlines. dogs are the best. >> all right, thanks very much. we told you that donald trump will be joining he'll be here in a matter of seconds. after the debate he not only did interviews with cnn and fox, he went to the general pool and addressed everybody. >> he did indeed. donald trump joins us from florida.
4:37 am
>> good morning. >> on the cover of "the new york post" this morning, it's got your big headline n 90 minutes dr. ben carson is going to be endorsing you. you have two former presidential candidates endorsing you. can you tell us a little bit about the conversation you had with the doctor and how he came on to the trump train? >> well, ben is a terrific guy. loved by everybody. i mean, he was just really liked and respected by everybody. i think more so in terms of the like aspect of it. you know, each of the competitors really liked him. i got a call from ben and he said, you know, you're doing something that's amazing. we call it the movement and it is a movement when you have 20 or 25,000 people every time you speak or almost every time you speak. we have the biggest crowds by far. he said this is amazing. i love what you're doing and i'd love to join and love to endorse you and i said, ben, this would be an honor and an about an hour from now, a little bit more, ben's going to come over and we'll have a big news conference and we'll have a little fun. >> i know that at one point you did say that reading his bio you
4:38 am
called him pathological. i guess that was just part of the game? >> well, it was part of the game. i was -- all i was doing was trying to say exactly what he said, because he talked about his growing up, which was tough. i just -- all i did was i read parts of what he said and then i hoped -- but it all worked out. >> all right. so that's -- so that's got to be a big moment today. i think a lot of people want that endorsement of donald trump, you have it. meanwhile, something else that made headlines yesterday and that's when you doubled down on your comments on islam. let's listen. >> mr. trump, let me start with you. last night you told cnn, quote, islam hates us. did you mean all 1.6 billion muslims? >> i mean a lot of them. i mean a lot of them. >> what's your reaction to that? you probably heard rubio, we were interviewing marco rubio earlier on the show. he was saying that that is a big problem because of the -- let's
4:39 am
listen to his response. then i want you to react. >> when someone who is running for president or is going to be president casts the blanket statements, what you do is you lose the focus on what we should be focused on which is radical islam. radicalization of islam is a serious problem globally and that needs to be confronted. but i don't think it's correct to say that all muslims hate america. that's just not true. the fact is if we wanted to defeat radical islam we have to work with muslims to do it. when they say to arm the kurds or say to work with the sunnis in that region, those are muslims. when they talk about voting -- working with egypt and saudi arabia and jordan, those are muslims. >> so mr. rubio said that you had said all muslims hate us. you said many. you didn't say all. >> well, i said many, i mean many. there's no question about it. i don't have to be politically correct, you know i'm in this thing to make america great again.
4:40 am
that's what we have -- that's our theme. you have heard it for a long time. we'll make america great again. we won't be necessarily politically correct. but you look at on television, look at some of the mosques in the middle east where they are screaming, you know, death to america, death to america. doesn't look it's about 2% to me. so i make the statement. and look, we have a problem. and they have a problem. >> but donald trump, you would -- would you also agree that the kurds have been the best friends in the region, one of the few people we can count on for 20 years? >> i guess so. i guess we think so, i hope so. we have been very disappointed with our -- with the folks that we think are on our side over there. we've backed people and they turn against us. we have had so much turning against us, we have given so many billions of dollars of weaponry and everything else and then all of a sudden, we find out that the weapons are turned against us. that the people that we thought were on our side were not on our side. >> right. >> so i don't think we who's on
4:41 am
our side. but i do respect the kurds. they seem to be the ones that have most helped. but whether or not -- i mean, the question was asked of me, i want to be honest. i know it's -- it would be easier for me to say, well -- i didn't say all. but boy, there's tremendous hatred there. no question about it. we might as well recognize it, folks. >> there you go. >> well, a lot of people say what's happening now is not working. >> well, what's what happening right now is not working. that's right. we have to rebuild our country. we have to knock out isis. we have no choice but to knock out isis and to knock them out big and rapidly. we have to get rid of them. you know they're chopping off heads. these are people -- this is medieval times we're talking about. we have to stop being politically correct about the war. we fight the war in a politically correct way. we don't bomb certain areas because we're worried about air pollution. hard to believe. >> mr. trump, we had heard that
4:42 am
apparently your strategy going in last night was to be above the fray and not hit anybody unless they socked you. it seemed like, you know, i have heard a number of analysts say you seemed very presidential last night. yet, rubio and cruz did go after you. rubio on social security. and cruz on trade. did you accomplish what you wanted to, going in by the end of the two hours? >> yeah, i think so. by all scores, but everybody that scores the polls. and there are a lot of them. it's an amazing thing. we have these polls coming out and they come out -- drudge as you know, who's such a fantastic person. but drudge and "time" magazine and all of them. i won the debate by all scores so maybe it shows i don't have to be so -- so let's say flamboyant. last night was very important to me from the stand point of if -- you know, assuming i wasn't
4:43 am
attacked, i wasn't really hit the way i was previously. when you get hit you have to fight back. i thought it was a civil debate actually. >> let me ask you a question about social security because you said this affects all of us. your kids are my age. social security, the money is not going to be there when they get older and you said you want to leave it alone. >> what i want to do is and i feel strongly about it, save social security. i'm going to do massive cuts where we're wasting -- you have waste, fraud and abuse all over the place. we'll bring back the jobs, we'll be a rich nation again. we'll be able to afford social security. i'm not going to tell all of these people that have been paying in for many years that we're going to cut social security. like in all fairness rubio wants to do. like ted cruz wants to do. like the governor wants to do. they all want to cut social security. i'm going to go the other way. we're going to save social security, we'll make our country rich again and save social security and other things that we want for our people. it's time to stop cutting. our people have gone through enough. >> all right. donald trump, we thank you very much for joining us. just about 75 minutes from right
4:44 am
now, you will see the endorsement by dr. ben carson right here on the channel. thank you, mr. trump. good luck. >> thank you very much. >> all right. we'll step aside. coming up next, details on the scandal surrounding the wounded warrior project. i've been on my feel all day. i'm bushed! yea me too. excuse me...coming through! ride the gel wave of comfort with dr. scholls massaging gel insoles. they're proven to give you comfort. which helps you feel more energized ...all day long. i want what he has.

4:48 am
mission of helping wounded warriors and will this move, firing the guy, get them back on truck? peter johnson jr. joins us. what do you think? >> we hope it gets them back on track because a lot of people in america and a lot of people on fixed incomes they send their $19 a month to wounded warriors. so cbs and some of the mainstream and left stream media are reveling in the wounded warrior problems now. wounded warriors responded, they fired the top two guys. they're looking what they're doing. in terms of the $26 million they say the big portion of it, 94%, was actually related to warrior expenses of family outings and things like that. that staff also participated in. but obviously, they're bloated. obviously there's been a lot of abuse. obviously, they were traveling first class. they shouldn't be doing that. they have party, they shouldn't be doing that. but how does the program get back up on its feet? >> right. >> we have some great programs in this country. the marine corps law enforcement foundation, with navy s.e.a.l.s,
4:49 am
with other groups. their expenses are minimal. the expenses have been too high the wounded warriors project, but they're doing some good stuff. they're setting up stuff -- the medical centers around the country and doing programs across the yet in terms of psychiatric stuff. the truth is we shouldn't have the wounded warriors program, we shouldn't have the navy program, the v.a. should be doing this and they're not. >> so what what you're saying, don't lose faith in the wounded warriors -- >> they need to come on the show like "fox & friends" and sit with you three and sit with me and say this is what we have done, this is what we intend to do. this is how we spend our money. this is why you should have faith in us. the end game is don't lose faith in our wounded warriors. this program i think can be saved. but it's up to them. >> all right. peter johnson jr., thank you. >> good to see you. meanwhile, if you can't decide which candidate to vote for, help can be in the palm of

5:02 am
he's come so far in this journey and for trump to be selected by him, first of all, it strengthens the whole evangelical appeal. ben carson a deeply religious person, a man of faith. so by him endorsing donald trump i think that's very, very significant. it's a real nod to that community and said, look, this man is embraced by me. he's also because of this life arc he has lived and the wonderful in terms of his medical skills that he has demonstrated i think he would be a brilliant surgeon general. brilliant addition to the government of the united states. >> sure. when we had donald trump on about half an hour ago, we talked to him about the endorsement which you will see in about an hour here on the channel. regarding dr. ben carson and this is what donald trump had to say. >> well, ben is a terrific guy. loved by everybody. i mean, he was just really liked and respected by everybody. i think probably more so in terms of the like aspect of it. you know, each of the competitors really, really liked him. i got a call from ben and he said, you know, you're doing something that's amazing.
5:03 am
we call it the movement and it is a movement when you have 20 or 25,000 people every time you speak. he said, this is amazing, i love what you're doing and i'd love to join and endorse you. i said, ben, this would be an honor. >> this makes now two of his former rivals have endorsed him. chris christie and now here in an hour, ben carson. >> if john kasich loses ohio or even if he wins wouldn't he be a brilliant vice presidential choice for donald trump? a man of deep experience in government. >> he brings home ohio. >> well, you're talking tactical politics of course that's true. but in a larger sense it gives you some comfort that here you have a man who knows how the government runs. moderate in every sense. a republican much like i am. and i think that that would be a great team. i also think that cory booker would be a great selection for hillary clinton. that would be a great race, a strong field. a clinton/booker, you know,
5:04 am
trump/kasich. there you have four very skilled, very capable people running for -- >> you'd have a clear choice. >> and also a clear choice. absolutely. >> you know whatever it means, kasich says i don't want to be vice president or anyone's running mate. >> i don't want to be vice president either, i want to be president. okay. >> i'll take it. you know, donald trump a lot of people say they like him. they're going to the polls to vote for him because he speaks his mind. on wednesday, he said, quote, islam hates us. jake tapper asked him about it last night at the debate. let's listen in. >> last night, you told cnn, quote islam hates us. did you all mean 1.6 billion muslims? >> i mean a lot of them. i mean a lot of them. i have been watching the debate today and they're talking about radical islamic terrorism or radical islam, but i'll tell you there's something going on that maybe you don't know about, maybe a lot of other people don't know about. but there's a tremendous hatered.

i will stick with what i said to anderson cooper. >> geraldo, he doubled down. >> he did double down. i lamented. i don't think it was necessary. even if it's true, it harkens back to the old crusades, christianity against islam. you know, i have scores of muslim friends and i know how deeply disturbed many of them -- american citizens, successful business people, their children go to school now and they're really getting very bad vibes. i wish it was not -- i wish he could have moderated that. >> but there's a problem with radical -- >> it's a problem and radical islam is gigantic, steve. you can't minimize the problem. >> is -- >> when rubio said a significant portion of the sunni muslim population has this anti-american sentiment, rubio was right. but i think that trump could have said it -- rubio's way. >> they're both right. >> i think they're both right. >> here's marco rubio earlier on
5:06 am
our show. >> when someone who is running for president or who is going to be president casts the blanket statements loses the focus on radical islam. radicalization of islam is a problem globally. that needs to be confronted with i don't think it's correct to say that all muslims hate america. it's not true. if we want to defeat radical muslim we have to work with muslims to do it. when they say to arm the kurds or work with the sunnis, those are muslims. when they talk about working with egypt and saudi arabia and jordan, those are muslims. >> trump didn't say all muslims. he said many. >> he did, and when you have -- when you consider that we have to have egypt on our side, tunisia, the two countries that straddle libya in the middle where you have a tremendous isis presence, jordan, the king there could not be more friendly and more -- >> he's american educated. >> many of them are. turkey for all the problems and
5:07 am
islamists leader now -- we have to work with turkey. turkey should be part of europe. >> what about the kurds? >> the firmest ally, what i'm saying is donald trump is right. there is a cancer in the islamic society that threatens the west and has for a long time and there is a clash of cultures to a large extent. however, rubio is right. you can't just go out there and make blanket statements that take the people on the edges and accelerates this process. you want to begin to shrink this spreading cancer of anti-american feeling. a lot of it is because of the iraq invasion, let's face it. but there was not an iraq invasion before the attack on the world trade center. >> when we freed all the muslims from the brutal dictator? >> to me, that's a -- first with george bush and then late we are the arab spring, the catastrophic policy of barack
5:08 am
obama that was very naive. barack obama was the opposite of donald trump. donald trump is in many ways the reaction, the response to the failure of the obama opening and selling the society -- telling the societies they have to evolve much faster. we extend the olive branch to you. >> it sounds like they're saying the same thing, is it semantics here? >> absolutely -- >> well, between rubio and trump. but ainsley, i think that -- >> i agree with brian, with all due respect to you. but semantics count. >> it does. >> substance -- >> radical -- >> if people's feelings are hurt. why not add -- what do you lose by adds a modifier to a blanket statement? just to show you're -- >> maybe he will. >> you're not just saying it because you can say it. >> you talked about evolutiovol. what about the persona we saw in donald trump last night? going in he said, you know, i'm not going to whack anybody unless they whack me first.
5:09 am
you know, i have read some of the analysts they say he seemed presidential. >> i thought that he was. it is impossible to see donald trump last night and not see him as the republican nominee. he knows he has this won. florida will go to trump. florida will put trump into the nomination, i believe. ohio even if governor kasich wins ohio i do not believe that that in my meaningful way slow the express train. >> what happens to ted cruz then? >> you know, ted cruz is -- you know, i'm not a ted cruz fan. i think that, you know, i -- >> many are. >> dr. fester -- uncle fester from "the munsters" i can't look at the sharp face and the nasty things -- >> he used to light a light bulb with his face? that guy? >> but i think he's a brilliant
5:10 am
guy. dershowitz said he was the smartest guy in harvard law school. he's a very substantial person. i think unlike rubio, he's been solicitor general in texas. he's argued before the united states supreme court. he's a harvard law grad. a lot going on there, you'd like to tap into him. to me, i could never have a beer with him. >> just on a fox news alert basis, do you think what else is happening? nancy reagan. there you can see some of the images of yesterday, thousands of people filed past her casket there at the ronald reagan presidential library. geraldo, you have a story. >> well, you know, i have run into the former first lady now -- the former late first lady often over the year t last time -- i am very emotional about it. >> getting choked up. >> it was so touching. we were at the bel air, i stay at the bel air hotel. it's my west coast base. and i was there with erica and
5:11 am
sol, who was about 7 years old. the former first lady comes into the dining area. we were already seated. i saw her of course, i stood up. as i went over, i said, come with me. we're walking over with me. nancy had come in, she came in with a walker. she sat down, entourage. she stood up immediately. the former first lady, stood up immediately. and she was so attentive to my daughter, how are you? how is school? what do you want to be when you grow up? i mean, i'm telling you, it was so far beyond the necessary to be, you know, polite. she was -- she was sincerely engaged and my daughter was so puffed as a result that it was something she still talks about to this day. was so moving and so sincere. that i'm telling you, if you didn't love her before, you had
5:12 am
to love her after that. it was -- it wasn't a big state thing. it was a little thing. nobody -- >> just -- >> she appeared to repair the rift with her daughter. >> did you meet her? i wanted to here her so badly. >> she was. what a love story. that's a love story for the ages. >> all right. >> geraldo, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we loved having you on. talk to you on the radio. >> i'll be there. meanwhile, some news with heather. >> good morning to all of you. 12 minutes after the hour. a massive manhunt under way at this hour for two violent inmates. a convicted murderer, man who shot a sheriff's deputy in the face. the inmates escaped a prison transport van but it's unclear when this happened. the officers didn't check on them during two stops on the way to the prison. they say they're coming closer to catching cruz and clah.

desire to smoke. two encouraging stories. match that, steve. >> thank you, brian. as republicans faced off in miami last night and for john kasich the pressure was on. >> that's right. the ohio governor has not won any states so far and the only path to the presidency may be a brokered convention. the candidates touched on that issue last night. listen. >> i think whoever gets to that top position as opposed to solving that artificial number set by somebody which is a random number, i think that whoever gets the most delegates should win. that's what i think. >> donald is right, there are only two of us that have a path to winning the nomination. donald and myself. >> the math doesn't tell the whole story in politics. the great thing about politics the reason we watch it, what's true today is not necessarily true tomorrow. so let's not get ahead of ourselves. >> okay. we have the ohio's secretary of
5:25 am
state and he is joining us from columbus. good morning. >> great to be with you. >> so your reaction to how your man up governor kasich did last night. he hasn't won anything so far, although according to the latest fox news poll in ohio, of republicans, the governor is leading donald trump by five points. >> yeah. the governor did a great job. he's appealing to people's hopes and aspirations, not playing to their fears. that's what ohio voters like about him. and that's why he's doing well here so far. >> now going into the convention in july, if there's a brokered convention, what happens to kasich at that point? >> well, you know, i don't like to play ahead, you know, as the secretary of state we're focused on tuesday. we will all know as a nation a lot more about where the race stands after tuesday. i believe that john kasich is going to win ohio. he's -- it's going to be very close between he and donald trump. and i was just in cleveland last night, people in cleveland are very excited about hosting the convention. and we in ohio though we're
5:26 am
focused on tuesday. we're not playing fast forward at this point. >> john, though if you look at what happened in -- for donald trump in michigan for instance, michigan is a lot like ohio. a lot of manufacturing jobs. there's a number of stories out today about how -- there's one story that talks about in the state of pennsylvania, nearly 50,000 democrats in pennsylvania have switched over to the republican party so they could vote for trump. it's all part of a ditch and switch effort that -- that life long democrats are moving over to trump because they like his message when it comes to trade and manufacturing. >> yeah, you're going to see some of that. there's no question that john kasich is doing great among the republicans that always vote in the primary. the question is will donald trump be able to attract independents and crossover democrats in sufficient numbers to overcome the popularity that
5:27 am
john kasich has among republicans? >> what do you think? >> and i think it's going to be close. i really do. when i'm out aar people that ar vote republican to vote for donald trump. and who are going to vote republican to vote against donald trump as well. so you just don't know what that mix will ultimately be, but there's no question that he does have an appeal to many democrats who are converting to vote in the republican primary. >> any chance he could become the vp? >> john kasich would be a great president, he'd be a great vice president. you've got to win ohio if you want to win the country. and he should be -- he should have a role in this at some point. >> okay. now it's just a sprint to tuesday. see if -- we'll know wednesday morning. >> it will be an excite canning day. >> it will be. >> the secretary of state, the great state of ohio, thank you so much. >> thank you, john. coming up, ted cruz is down by 100 delegates so is it time for him to step aside? the governor of texas on that

senator cruz, if you overtake donald trump at the convention, what will you do to take his passionate supporters and keep them from bolting the convention and sabotaging the fall election? >> make me president. >> look there are some folks -- donald, you are welcome to be president of the smithsonian. >> that was one of the funnier
5:32 am
moments last night. ted cruz quick on his feet, but was his debate performance enough to give him an edge over the competition and have him win on tuesday? >> senator greg abbott who is supporting ted cruz joins us live from austin. good morning. >> good morning. >> what was your reaction to last night's debate? >> listen, i thought it wasser the rick for ted cruz -- terrific for ted cruz because the candidates are talking about the issues and separating themselves among the issues. i'll go back to the comment that both donald trump and ted cruz made. both of them agree that there's only two candidates in this race who have a mathematical possibility of winning the nomination and that is ted cruz and donald trump. we need to get it down to the two candidate, have them battle it out for the rest of the primary. >> but the problem is the fact that john kasich has made it very clear he's not dropping out before ohio. he's the governor there. he's leading by a little bit. and marco rubio while it had been rumored, you know, if he
5:33 am
doesn't win florida he's going have to drop out on wednesday morning, made it clear yesterday he's not going anywhere either. so the plan to -- plan to unite the party behind ted cruz as the anti-trump guy that's not going anywhere soon. >> first, what ted cruz is not asking for is trying to unite if you would the establishment behind him. but here's one thing that's going to be clear after tuesday. and that is, even assuming that kasich wins ohio, which i think and frankly hope he does, one thing that is clear, mathematically it is impossible for kasich or rubio to win. it will be mathematically possible for cruz to win. i think after tuesday the race will be narrowed down to the two candidate, cruz and trump. here's the deal of what was made very clear in last night's debate. ted cruz is the only candidate who robustly stands for conservative republican principles.
5:34 am
i think the more people get to see the separation of difference between ted cruz and donald trump, the republicans will go to ted cruz knowing that we need a solid conservative leading this country. >> right. governor, everyone who saw the debate last night could see how conversant he is on the issues, however, i cannot see judging by the polling that he'll win on tuesday. can he go 0 for 5 on tuesday? >> here's -- the states that he can win on tuesday, well, we'll see. here's what we found, that was there were several states that people couldn't see him winning polling wise before he won kansas and idaho and the other states. but he did and here's why. and that's because now that the field has been narrowed, people are voting based more upon political ideology. about principles and ted cruz is the only person out there who has a chance of winning, who has a solid record on conservative principles. >> all right, ted cruz goes after president obama. i want to play this sound bite
5:35 am
from last night and get your reaction. >> we have seen for seven years a president that has made the presidency and has made sadly his administration a laughingstock in the world. this administration started with president obama sending back the bust of winston churchill to the united kingdom within the opening weeks and then he proceeded to go on a worldwide apology tour, apologizing for the united states of america. our friends and allies quickly learned, america could not be counted on. but the good news, we have seen this before. we have seen a weak democratic president weaken our military, weaken our respect in the work in jimmy carter and in january 1981, ronald reagan came into office and that can change overnight. it's worth remembering. iran, release our hostages -- released the hostages the day
5:36 am
that ronald reagan was sworn into office. >> that was ted cruz last night. can you see yourself, if it's not ted cruz in the long run, reince priebus said to rally around the guy who wins, would you rally around donald trump if he wins? >> obviously the choice would be hillary clinton who it turns out the way she's arguing and presenting her case for the presidency would be far to the left, and far worse than barack obama. i'll give you one clear example and that is, in a large part the future of the united states of america is going to hinge on who appoints the successor to justice scalia. if hillary makes that appointment we are at a constitutional tipping point, the country will tip leftward for a long time. if hillary clinton makes that appointment. that's just one issue. but there's so many others, so of course i'll be supporting whoever the republican nominee s knowing they're far superior to hillary clinton. >> yeah. regarding that, let's say -- because you were talking math earlier, delegate math, what if going into the convention donald
5:37 am
trump is real close to 1,237 but he's not there and then what happens on the next stage is unchartered territory, isn't it? >> i don't know if it's unchartered -- >> in our lifetime. >> well, i may be older than you. by here's where we are and that is i do think we'll go into the convention with both donald trump and ted cruz being very, very close to having the delegates needed to win the nomination. i think that either one will win or two, we'll have a convention where delegates need to choose between one of those two candidates. maybe it could be a situation where each of the two candidates get on the stage and articulate what their vision is and try to convince the delegates they are the right person. i will add -- >> sudden death. >> well, let me add this, because there's a point you made earlier. a point made frequently, donald
5:38 am
trump has brought into the republican party, into this campaign, a lot of new voters. it is essential for republicans, whatever happens, that we're ability to continue to bring those voters in and get them to vote for the republican nominee in november. >> all right. very good. meanwhile, you have something big going on, south by southwest. it's happening this weekend. i know the president is going to be in attendance there. also, i did not realize that austin, texas, is the top city in the nation for tech jobs, creative job, start-up activity. what are you doing down there in the lone star state? >> you know, there's a great misconception that some people have, they think that it's an oil and gas state. that's the gravy we put on our plate. i'll throw out a question and answer it, what state in the united states of america is the leading exporter of technology? the answer is -- >> hold on.
5:39 am
>> i'll go with texas. >> texas? >> texas leads the nation in technology exports and it's about to get even more robust because oracle just announced they're building a 27-acre campus right here in austin, texas. apple is about to open their second largest campus in the world. where the western hemisphere operations will be conducted right here from austin, texas. but we have small start-ups like ones who moved from the san francisco area to austin, texas. it's a leading cloud based company because the cost of doing business, the taxes and regulations are far easier and far lower and far more profitable to do business in the lone star state. >> compared to california. >> he talked texas, tech, and ted. governor, thank you. >> thank you so much, governor. >> thank you. >> when i lived in texas, no state tax comes out of your paycheck. >> and in florida, you're right.
5:40 am
>> nice people down there. >> heather nauert? >> i was down there. i loved it down there. good morning to all of you. i have a couple of headlines to bring you right now. this video will leave you short of breath. it is the moment that a propane tank explodes. take a look. >> oh, no! >> can you imagine standing there and then you see that thing go off? this explosion happened at a construction site. it was near cleveland, ohio. ten fire departments had to respond the scene. not clear what caused that explosion. amazingly, no one was hurt. and a spending scandal is rocking the nation's largest veteran's charity. listen to this. >> with a gift of just $19 a month, you can join wounded warrior project. to help -- >> well, we all know the organization, but now two of the top executives at the wounded warrior project, stephen nardizzi and al giordano have been fired for spending more
5:41 am
than $20 million in donations on employee travel and conferences. >> they need to come on the show like "fox & friends" and say, this is what we have done. this is what we intend to do. this is how we spend our money. this is why you should have faith in us. >> right. >> the end game is don't lose faith in our wounded warriors. >> well, an investigation finding that 40 to 50% of donations are actually spent on veterans and many experts are saying that's not enough. this is one sly fox rummaging through a golfer's bag in ireland. love the shot. the animal takes off with the guy's wallet. >> that's my wallet! >> the guy is like, hey, wait a minute, come back here. that fox made it a few feet before he dropped the wallet. the guy got his money back and now he can have a beer and f finish his golf. >> thank you. the candidates played nice last night.
5:42 am
>> i would say this. we're all in this together. we're going to come up with solutions and find the answers to things and so far i cannot believe how civil it's been up here. >> right. so did you like the candidates playing nice or were you bored to tears? that's story next. what did our friend louie anderson think? he's a democrat, but he said that trump can get his vote. wake up and smell the voting, louie. i love life, so i like to live it healthy... i like to make it fun! a lot of clients become like family. that's the reason that i work for gnc for 25 years.

5:47 am
mother. we don't have to make any changes for them, but anybody who says that social security can stay the same is lying. if they say, we can raise a few taxes, or leave it the way it is, they're lying to you. social security will go bankrupt and bankrupt our country with it. >> the folks gave this one an "a." he brought his mother into the conversation, it was realistic. what people wanted to hear. rubio had a good night last night. he came back to who he was always -- who he was, his authentic self. his character came through. is it enough, too little too late, probably too little too late, but he needed to do what he needed to do. >> they're within seven points and if you believe the fox poll he's 23 away. john kasich he talked about the foreign policy. who our enemies are. >> you need to support your friends, you need to hold your enemies out here and you need to negotiate tough deals. the fact is, they need to understand who we are. the chinese understand.
