1:00 am
good morning. it is wednesday, june 8th and welcome to an early edition of "fox & friends first." i'm heather childers. >> i'm abby huntsman. the final six months is paving the way for donald trump and hillary clinton but bernie sanders says he is staying in the race. >> clinton declaring victory in at least three out of six races. the critical primary in california not yet called, but clinton is in the lead. >> no surprises for trump with a clean sweep across all five states. >> i'm going to be your champion. i'm going to be america's champion.
1:01 am
>> it's clear that donald trump doesn't believe we are stronger together. >> we will not allow donald trump to become president of the united states. >> to all of those bernie sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rixist of sutch err delegates, we welcome you with open arms. >> we're going to take a moment later tonight and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we've made here. >> next tuesday we continue the fight in the last primary in washington, d.c. >> the deal sealed for clinton with 2,497 delegates and for trump as well with 1,536 delegates. >> we'll go live to washington with a complete wrapup of the final states. garrett, good morning. >> heather and abby, good morning. hillary clinton made history last night becoming the first woman in american history to win
1:02 am
the presidential nomination of a major political party. while she did take some time to relish that historic moment in her victory speech, she quickly turned her hand back to the new task at hand, hitting donald trump and winning the general election. >> it's clear that donald trump doesn't believe we are stronger together. he has abused his primary opponents and their families, attacked the press for asking tough questions, denigrated muslims and immigrants. he wants to win by stoking fear and rubbing salt in wounds and reminding us daily just how great he is. >> last night was a preview of what we can expect to see a lot more of over the next five months. donald trump spent a good chunk of his victory speech hammering away at clinton as well. he went after her for the e-mail scandal and the clinton
1:03 am
foundation in his prepared remarks which he read from a teleprompter and gave a preview of what he's calling a major speech on the clintons next monday. >> we can't solve our problems by counting on the politicians who created our problems. the clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves. they've made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts and i mean hundreds of millions of dollars. >> and you also heard in those clips earlier about trump making his pitch to bernie sanders supporters saying he welcomes them with open arms. sanders made that a bit more difficult task when he adamantly told supporters, we will not allow donald trump to become president and said despite clinton's wins last night, he is not dropping out. >> next tuesday we continue the fight in the last primary in
1:04 am
washington state and then we take our fight for social, economic, racial and environmental justice to philadelphia, pennsylvania. >> fox news has learned though that over half of sanders campaign staff will be laid off in the next week. sanders is scheduled to meet with president obama and senator harry reed here in d.c. on thursday. heather and abby. >> garrett tenney, what a night it has been or day. can donald trump's strategy be a game changer? fox news contributor tony saig and mercedes slat. thank you for joining us, tony, for sticking around as well. >> good to be here. >> let's talk about this. let's begin with donald trump's strategy. he's saying that, you know, he has a 15-state strategy. will that work for him and can
1:05 am
he win over these left leaning states? mercedes? >> i think when you look at the case, for example, of ohio, in 2012 president obama won that state by just three percentage points. if trump is able to increase that appeal to the white working class in states like ohio, pennsylvania, michigan, for example, as well as keep the traditional republican base in the suburban, those who are right leaning, you're going to need to have both parts of the equation, i think, heather, he has a possibility of being able to turn those blue states into possible red states. it's an uphill challenge for trump, but with his economic populus message it's something that's driving those white working class voters who have felt left behind by president obama and the democratic party. >> so, tony, that's a very fine line to walk. i mean, how do you make both groups happy? >> well, i think you could certainly do that if you're
1:06 am
donald trump because you're actually running, in my assessment, a largely non-partisan campaign. he's not an ideologically rigid guy. on the republican side there's going to be animation to vote against hillary clinton. the states mercedes mentioned when you talk about pennsylvania, ohio, virginia, there's a catholic vote there. there's a major vote that donald trump has been over performing with. those are very good states for him to focus on. if you extend it slightly further, i know there's this crazy notion that every time donald trump says he's going to compete in california and new york, that that's crazy. that's not. he has the earned media and certainly the financial capacity to start really playing in these bigger states which most republicans campaign -- >> yeah, we have to talk about this though, tony, and mercedes, the hispanic vote in light of the controversy that's going on this week. >> sure. >> the hispanic vote, how does he get that vote, specifically
1:07 am
when you're talking about california, florida, arizona. mercedes? >> it's been difficult for republican candidates to win the hispanic vote. we saw in 2012, for example, mitt romney was only able to garner about 27% of the hispanic vote. i think you've seen recent polls, there was one that came out where trump was about 28%. we need those numbers to be closer to 40%. again, we've got to view it not nationally necessarily but in swing states like florida, like virginia where you have a growing hispanic population. where, for example, in florida, 12 to 15% of the electorate there, they're hispanic. the south florida region with the cuban americans, very important republican base to maintain. for trump it is going to have to sell that message that hillary clinton is, you know, lying hillary, crooked hillary and sell that message that his economic popularism is bringing it to the community. it is an uphill battle for
1:08 am
trump, if he's able to build that coalition and make that and reach out to the hispanic community, you know, he could get into the 30s, but it's going to be tough. >> speaking of an uphill battle, as we heard this evening, bernie sanders is staying in not only through the primary next tuesday and all the way through philadelphia. does staying in help or hurt trump? we heard him adamantly tell his voters, do not vote for trump, he didn't use those words, but he said we will not allow donald trump to get into the white house. tony? >> in the short term it helps trump because it continues to complicate what's been a very messy primary season for hillary clinton. it doesn't make the win that she earned tonight, the historic win, frankly, as clean as she wants it. you have to remember, bernie sanders when he talks about his message, economic justice, social justice, racial justice, environmental justice, three of those are very economic, liberal
1:09 am
buckets. the other area, liberal justice, is an area where they can pick off. that also goes to the larger point of donald trump expanding the base of the party. so, yes, mercedes is right when you look at the kind of zero sum way of politics, we need more senate votes. he's increasing votes from reagan democrats, blue collar workers and that can offset it. >> everybody wants a job no matter what demographic you are a part of. all right. we are going to bring you back in the next hour so do not go far. thank you very much for joining us right now though. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> abby. >> great panel. thanks, heather. the time is ten minutes after the hour. buckle your seat belts with donald trump and hillary clinton poised to be the most disliked candidates in history. are we in for an ugly general election? julie carter is here with what we can expect from a trump/clinton debate. stay with us.
1:10 am
[beekeeper] from bees to business expenses,
1:11 am
1:12 am
1:13 am
i'm in charge of it all. so i've been snapping photos of my receipts and keeping track of them in quickbooks. now i'm on top of my expenses, and my bees. best 68,000 employees ever. that's how we own it. welcome back to an early edition of "fox & friends first." 75 years, that's how long it could take to get to the bottom of hillary clinton's e-mail scandal. while the presumptive democratic nominee still insists her private server was no secret. >> everybody in the department knew that i was e-mailing from a personal address. hundreds of people knew it. people around the government knew it. >> but the state department begs to differ. lauren green live with us with some new developments. good morning, lauren. >> good morning, heather. the department spokesperson telling a completely different
1:14 am
story, saying hillary clinton's senior staffers had no idea about her private e-mail use as secretary of state. the department now fighting tooth and nail to block a records request by the republican national committee defending a 75 year wait time. the rnc demanding to see e-mails from clinton's top aides. >> it's a very broad range involving a number of people over a period of four years and it's not an outlandish estimation believe it or not. >> the rnc sued the department in march for the records. the suit covers former chief of staff cheryl mills, advisor jacob sullivan and the i.t. specialist who helped set up clinton's server. pagliano is the same ex-staffer who struck a deal in the ongoing fbi investigation. he's also filed a motion on his own to keep his records under wraps. heather. >> very interesting. lauren green, live for us.
1:15 am
thank you, lauren. meantime, former secretary of state and presumptive democratic nominee, hillary clinton, hear what she has to say herself because she will join fox news's bret baier on "special report" at 6:00 eastern. we're going to have quite an election, aren't we? i personally can't wait to debate him. >> well, i probably could think of nobody i'd rather debate. i think beating her in a debate would be one of the easy challenges of my life, that i can say. >> well, it is the general election of the lesser of two evils with donald trump and hillary clinton poised to be the most disliked presidential candidates in decades. so with the gloves coming off, are we about to witness the ugliest race in u.s. history? here to take a closer look, pollster and partner, jenn carter. >> great to see you. >> the most recent washington post poll on this, if you can pull it up, the unfavorable
1:16 am
rating, 60% donald trump, 53% hillary clinton. there's not one person i've asked about these candidates who hasn't said, i don't know, i kind of like them, i kind of don't. >> it is so polarizing. if you are against hillary, you are really against hillary clinton. if you are against donald trump, you are violently against donald trump. people aren't curious as to why people are against the other. they have washed them off as evil. >> what does that mean for a general election? here we are, donald trump says i haven't even started with hillary clinton yet. >> when you look at the polls leading up to this, it's almost impossible to predict how it's going to play out. until you see them side by side and we didn't know how donald trump was going to play until he was out there with all 17 candidates, we have no idea but we do know that it's going to be really, really ugly. donald trump has a knack on hitting on the thing that people don't like about a candidate.
1:17 am
her untrustworthiness is going to rise. that's something that's going to impact her when it comes to the general election. on the other hand, hillary clinton hasn't found attack point to take down donald trump. >> nobody has. >> until this last week. she's tried all different kind of things. he's anti-women, bigot, unfit to be president, his temperament isn't right. he's all of these different things and yet nothing has really stuck this week when donald trump pretty much handed her a gift by saying what he did about the judge. >> he might be his own worst enemy. >> she said that she looks forward to debating donald trump. how is that going to go? how is this general election debate going to be? >> i think it's going to be fascinating because so far donald trump's been the only one who's been able to go after women. i can't imagine what it's going to be like. who's going to hold hillary up there and hold her down without seeming sexist, without -- he is able to make those claims and
1:18 am
deliver them and not take the heat for it. so i think he's going to go ugly, he's going to go strong. he is the master of the sound bite and that is something that really plays well in debates. she is not. she's going to have to figure out how to make those punches come back just as fast, just as quick, just as picky, just as repeatable. that's not something hillary can do up to this point. she can get nasty and she can get angry but it's not in that quick way that gets that sound bite played over and over again. >> you've studied these polls more than almost any of us. when does hillary play the best? when she focuses on the issues or on the attack? >> she plays the best when she's focused on the bigger picture. she doesn't have a master narrative. trump does, make america great and bernie does. >> why is she running for president, it's hard to put that into one sentence like make america great again. >> that's exactly right. she's had two moments where she
1:19 am
does that. she focuses on creating possibilities for people across america. she had one advertisement like that and she had one speech that resonated with folks because it made them feel hopeful and optimistic. she couches her message, we can't afford to let this go by, we can't let this happen. that's not inspiring to folks. what's inspiring is a better day tomorrow, more jobs, more possibility. >> it comes off at times a little bit angry. buckle up, lee carter, it will be a wild ride. we're going to see you next hour. >> yes. >> thank you. still to come, 19 after the top of the hour, a fox news alert for you. this is a horrible story. hit-and-run horror leaves five bicyclists dead at this hour run down by a truck. some new information on an arrest breaking overnight. and be a leopard on the loose. the frantic moment zoo goers are forced to hide when a dangerous animal escaped its enclosure.
1:20 am
1:21 am
1:22 am
1:23 am
welcome back to "fox & friends first." a fox news alert. breaking overnight. a bomb threat forces ab egyptair flight to make an emergency landing. the cairo to beijing flight was diverted to uzbekistan. all people on board evacuated safely. egyptian officials now say that the threat was a fake. just last month a member of egyptair flight 804 crashed into the mediterranean sea killing all 66 on board.
1:24 am
terror being investigated as a possible cause amongst other causes as well. well, a hit-and-run where five bicyclists are dead and four others fighting for their lives after a truck slams into them from behind. >> the driver of the truck taking off on foot. patricia stark with the details. >> good morning, heather and abby. a terrible situation. a defenseless group of nine bicyclists plowed over by a pickup truck that witnesses say came out of nowhere. it slammed into them from behind in michigan twisting and scattering them. following the crash the driver of the truck bailed fleeing on foot but was arrested a few moments later not far from the scene. five people were killed on impact and four more are in the hospital this morning. at least one is in critical condition and the others in very serious condition. witnesses in shock after hearing a loud bang before seeing the
1:25 am
carnage. >> he swerved over, almost like ran over my foot. i stepped back, blacked out for a second and i turned around. before i could say watch out to the bikers, it happened. a bunch of bikes hit in front of his truck and a couple of them flew. >> it didn't sound like he collided with people, bikes. it sounded like he hit a tree. >> it happened just north of kalamazoo, michigan, where police got calls about a pickup truck matching the description of the suspect's driving erratically. police were looking for the truck but not chasing it when the crash happened. the suspect, a 50-year-old man will receive charges as early as tomorrow. back to you guys. >> horrible story. >> thank you, patricia. the time now is 25 minutes after the top of the hour, and in it to win it. bernie sanders refusing to call it quits. >> next tuesday we continue the fight in the last primary in washington state. >> but is staying in the race
1:26 am
really his best bet? and his supporters waiver, where are they going to go? our panel next to weigh in.
1:27 am

1:30 am
away quietly. >> clinton declaring victory in five out of six races. california not called yet but clinton is in the lead there. >> another primary next tuesday for d.c. no surprises for trump with a clean sweep across all five states this time. >> i'm going to be your champion. i'm going to be america's champion. >> i'm going to take a moment later tonight and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we've made here. >> next tuesday we continue the fight in the last primary in washington, d.c. >> the deal is sealed for clinton with 2,497 delegates and for trump as well with 1,536 delegates. >> so let's get right to garrett tenney, live in washington, d.c. been live all night here for us, garrett. you have a complete wrapup of the final states, right? >> absolutely, heather and abby.
1:31 am
good morning to both of you. if last night was any indication, we'd better buckle up for the next five months. hillary clinton and donald trump did not waste any time going right after each other giving us a preview of what this general election match-up may look like. in her victory speech clinton did take some time to relish the historic moment of becoming the first woman in u.s. history to win the presidential nomination of a major presidential party, but she also had plenty to say about donald trump. >> when donald trump says a distinguished judge born in indiana can't do his job because of his mexican heritage or he mocks a reporter with disabilities or calls women pigs, it goes against everything
1:32 am
we stand for. >> donald trump took the night off with his victory speech at trump national golf club just outside of new york city with blistering criticisms of his own of hillary clinton in a prepared speech that he read from the teleprompter going after her e-mail scandal and the clinton foundation. >> hillary clinton turned the state department into a private hedge fund. the russians, the saudis, the chinese all gave money to bill and hillary and got favorable fleemt return. it's a sad day in america when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens. >> trump also made his pitch to bernie sanders supporters saying he welcomes them with open arms. sanders, meanwhile, told an excited crowd he is not dropping out of the race and there's no way he will allow trump to become president. >> we will not allow right wing republicans to control our government.
1:33 am
and that is especially true with donald trump as the republican candidate. >> and while sanders says he's staying in the race until the convention, his campaign is cutting back. fox news has learned over half of his staff will be laid off in the next week. heather and abby. >> garrett tenney, live for us. thank you, garrett. hillary clinton has clinched the democratic presidential nomination winning the majority of the pledged democratic delegates undercutting one of bernie sanders biggest arguments for continuing his campaign, so will his supporters back clinton once it's clear that he has lost the nomination? here now for our political panel, lesli marshall and capri. thank you for joining us. >> absolutely. >> we listened to bernie sanders
1:34 am
and he says he is not going anywhere any time soon. he says he realizes it is a steep climb but still believes he can win and he is going to fight for every single delegate and still try to change the mind of the super delegates. leslie, who does this impact the most? >> well, right now it actually impacts i think bernie sanders the most because when we look at the numbers, it just doesn't add up. i mean, this -- to me, we might as well be believing in a man in a red suit in the north pole for real. senator sanders, with all due respect, i understand that he has a mission, i understand that he has a message and i know that people think it is a revolution, but i think he has in a speech foreshadowed the democratic presumptive nominee hillary clinton. >> he did not even mention hillary clinton until 15 minutes into his speech, the very end of it. >> yes. >> he did make clear to his followers that he will not -- he
1:35 am
does not want donald trump to get into the white house but he did not say support hillary clinton instead. capri? >> yeah, here's the thing. if bernie sanders doesn't want donald trump to be president of the united states, then he needs to reassess his strategy. the longer he stays in this race, particularly because of the historic nature of hillary clinton clinching the oing to, think, really create a division within the democratic party to a point where if he goes all the way to philadelphia continuing to fight, we're going to have such a fractured party that, you know, he really opens it up for donald trump. if he doesn't want donald trump to be president of the united states, he really needs to think twice about why he's staying in it, you know, as long as he is. >> and one of the reasons possibly that he's staying in it some people have said relates to hillary clinton's struggles to recover as that fbi probe looms, but half the voters say that they will still vote for clinton
1:36 am
even if she is indicted. and we take a look at that poll. 50% say that she should continue running until the court determines her guilt or innocence and 43% say she should immediately stop campaigning. leslie, what does this say to you? >> this says to me echoing the sentiments of a long time ago when you have that hugging coombaya moment between bernie sanders and hillary clinton, they don't give the democrats a darn about those e-mails and they don't care about those darn e-mails, but i think most of the people out there who support hillary, as i do, look at this as perhaps reckless, as a policy breach but is it criminal? most of us think not. most legal experts think not at this point so people are confident with her going forward and comfortable for her to continuing running. >> i think there still is -- i think there still is a voracity issue with hillary clinton. i think it plays into the concerned narrative that, you know, she somehow, you know, is
1:37 am
corrupt or is just doing whatever it takes to get wherever she wants to go and so, you know, while i -- 50% of these folks might still vote for hillary clinton, i think most of those people are not the swing voters. where the e-mails are going to matter are for the people who are on the fence or bernie sanders voters who may be looking for a home with donald trump. >> specifically those young voters and young female voters -- >> right. >> -- that bernie sanders has consistently won across all demographics. leslie? >> look, if you just look at the platform of this revolution of senator sanders' followers, there's absolutely no way that his followers who are very, very high in supporting the issue of climate change. donald trump says there is no climate change. want a $15 minimum wage and donald trump says, hey, people are making too much money. who want free college. there is no way they're going to go from being democratic social its supporters to donald trump --
1:38 am
>> there's a sector that i think could potentially cross over. some of the blue collar folks that are concerned about trade in particular i think could potentially look to donald trump. i mean, even in west virginia a few weeks back there were folks voting for bernie sanders in a primary and said in the poll they're going to vote for donald trump. >> it doesn't help when you're hillary clinton and you go to speak about income inequality in front of a group you're wearing a jacket that costs, what, over $12,000? that didn't help either. we're going to have you guys back so do not go far. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> abby. >> thank you, guys. the time is currently about 40 after the hour. a firefighter rushing through waist high water to save a brand-new baby. all across flood ravaged florida. new polls show a tight race between donald trump and hillary clinton in the general. what does trump need to do to secure a white house win? we are mapping out his path to victory. that's next.

1:44 am
>> good morning, abby. >> no matter how you slice this thing, it is an uphill battle for donald trump at this point. >> absolutely. you start with a map that shows blue and red states from four years ago. all of these blue states are not created equal. california, barack obama won it. donald trump has no chance there. >> no chance there. >> so you look at the closer states, places like virginia where it was a close election last time around. a couple points can flip this thing. >> virginia can be in play. >> it's a tough state for trump because of all the federal employees in the northern part of the state. you go down to florida, another tossup state. >> what can happen there? >> i don't know. the latino population there could create, again, challenges for donald trump. so what you do is you go back to the, you know, grand daddy of all tossup states in ohio. this is a state -- >> look how close it was four years ago. >> i feel so bad for the voters in ohio. they got bombarded with all of this stuff every year, and also ohio right in the midwest is the place where donald trump's
1:45 am
message can resonate better principals than anywhere else. >> if he sticks to jobs, right and the economy? >> if he sticks to jobs and trade and the economy in the sense that nobody in washington is listening to these people. it's a message a little bit like ronald regan had 30 years ago where he talked about these folks, but when you get to this map and you start to look, what's around ohio? you've got pennsylvania -- >> so, interesting, the four states we just showed, romney lost all four of those. >> that's right. >> so now the question is where can trump made in roads in other states, right? >> that's right. he has to win ohio, what we were just talking about. 18 electoral college votes. you go to pennsylvania right next door, this is a state republicans always dream of, never win, but that's a state that donald trump is going to have to -- >> he's saying he's going to win it. >> he said he's going to win a lot of places. >> so did romney. >> that's right. >> michigan, that's a state that hasn't gone for the republicans since 1988. that's a place where donald
1:46 am
trump will try to reach the economic message. wisconsin -- >> all of these right next to each other. >> here's the problem, right now i'm projecting that ohio is a tossup. those other three states are leaning to the democrats. it is clearly an uphill fight. if donald trump wins every state that romney won plus those four, he gets exactly 270 electoral college votes, no margin for error. >> for trump? >> for trump. >> i mean, that's an uphill battle to climb. >> there are other tossup states. florida we talked about earlier. new hampshire is a tossup as well. >> talk about new hampshire, the importance of that state. >> not only does it have four electoral votes but there is a tossup senate race there. new hampshire, florida, and ohio all have tossup senate races. what does that mean? whoever wins those states at the presidential level might give their party control of the u.s. senate as well, but all eyes are going to be on the midwest. we're going to be talking about
1:47 am
these states as well. >> the trump planes will be spending a lot of time in this neck of the woods. >> here's the challenge. donald trump is reaching the same people that ronald regan did reach all of those years ago. reagan did it by expressing faith in people by saying if i remove government, you can do this yourself. donald trump is saying i'm going to negotiate on your behalf, different kind of message. >> very interesting. as we said, economy, economy, economy. >> that's right. >> he's got to stick to his message. we'll see how this plays out. matt matters. >> matt always matters. >> thanks for being with us this morning. appreciate it. heather. nice to see you in person, scott. he called in earlier. the time is now about ten minutes to the top of the hour. outrage online. bernie sanders supporters storm social media in a fit of furry.
