3:06 am
though, you know, the president of the united states has described afghanistan as a disaster but keep in mind, if you pull everybody out, that's going to be a mess and he does not want to be the first president to lose the country to terrorists. ainsley: now 8400 troops there in afghanistan. their job there is to train and advise those afghan forces to be able to fight and stand up against terrorist organizations like al qaeda. james mattis is talking about this. is he actually in jordan. here he is talking about afghanistan. listen to this. >> the process was rigorous and it involved all members of the cabinet, of the national security staff. and i would say attorney general and homeland security protecting america. state department and treasury department since significant allies. it has impacts on our budget. direct of omb was in on it.
3:07 am
the national security advisor and the chief of staff coordinate and make certain everyone who had equity was heard. brian: what secretary of state mattis said plan. we need more troops in afghanistan. the president said i will give you 3900. he said i will wait. let's get a treive plan together before i just take these troops. let's do something can i go in front of armed services and say this is our way forward. keep in mind, too. the people that would have cheered the loudest picked up states and said goodbye afghanistan. iran whose presence is being felt and there russia. the one who the third loudest, perhaps, is isis. the taliban, despite all their bluster have not gained a significant stake in land there. the special forces about 21,000 now, g.p.s. to up up to 31,000 in afghanistan. doing 70% of the fighting. we believe over the next few beers we can start training more like that and bolster
3:08 am
up their 1,000 man force, they might be able to stand on their own. the lead now is not in our best interest. steve: here's the thing. here is what is interesting about the president's announcement tonight what he is going to say has not leaked. what we do know. that's why we have played some of mattis and company. the fact is that the advisors to the president have said the best way to go forward would be to mod testily increase troop threstles there keep training the military and cia operatives in the area for counter insurgency. keep 9 p.m. ainsley: i would like to send more troops. hold off and talk about this as a group. is he talking to the experts. clearly they have served our country. they have done a million tours. they know what they are talking about. if you have a loved one going overseas and we are asking you to fight for our country it has to be strategically planned. brian: we can't have effective plan while pakistan is still a sanctuary for taliban to train isis to go.
3:09 am
for iran to allow these fighters to go back and forth. iran is now a huge present in heir rat. we watched one of these key taliban isis grays. we killed him on the way back. sending a message we know who you were, we know how are and we chose to kill you where we did to send a message we know what iran is up to. steve: meanwhile a lot of people send messages on facebook. and mari marie chappelle-nadal sent a message retweeted something where somebody said i hope president trump is assassinated. that's the woman right there. when she said she hoped the president would be assassinated, there was outrage everywhere. in fact democrats-she is a democrat,clair mccaskill the senator from that state has said she has got to resign. the governor there has said she has got to resign. the state senator herself said i am not going to resign. i'm not going to apologize
3:10 am
until last night when she apologized. >> president trump, i apologize to you and your family. i made a mistake. and you know what i'm reminded of, is that we are all human. and i'm also a child of god. i made a mistake and i'm owning up to it. and i am not ever going to make a mistake like that again and i have learned my lesson. my judge and my jury is my lord, jesus christ. steve: so she says she ♪ going to resign. the governor eric greaten said on friday says if she does not resign the state government can vote to remove her. ainsley: she is the leader. she panicked. she dleeftd it she did ask for apology. she apologized to the entire family after she said she wasn't going to apologize. she is a child of god's.
3:11 am
i believe in forgiveness so we can forgive question is should she remain in office? should she continue to be a leader or should there be consequences to the mistake that she made? brian: she certainly seemed sincere. how she acts from here on in if that is backed up by her actions, i say give her a mulligannen this one as sincere as it so to say you should kill the president. by rare live do you see somebody go to the microphone i was 100 percent wrong. i made a mistake. ainsley: let us know what you think. steve: even though she doesn't resign she is term limited out. she will be out. the question is should they act to remove her let us know "fox & friends." ainsley: headlines hand it over to jillian. jillian: good monday morning. good to be back with all of you. we do have headlines. starting with a fox news alert. police confirming that just one terrorist in the spain attack remains on the loose. the search now intensifying

3:15 am
with continued use, twice a day, every day. it's also what i prescribe to my patients who have this condition. restasis multidose helps increase your eyes' natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation due to chronic dry eye. restasis multidose did not increase tear production in patients using anti-inflammatory eye drops or tear duct plugs. to help avoid eye injury and contamination, do not touch the bottle tip to your eye or other surfaces. wait 15 minutes after use before inserting contact lenses. the most common side effect is a temporary burning sensation. your eyes. your tears. ask your eye doctor about restasis multidose. you necessary one laugh, and hello sensitive bladder.

3:18 am
use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. i'm so proud to be a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay. brian: going to be confirmed tonight the president will get in detailor in fort meyers about plan going forward in afghanistan a war which he is reluctant to double down on but there not be any other way. coming forward to talk about that right now and best way and best strategy for this president and country is the officer of deseemed. he is retired u.s. army brigadier general anthony at a time that. general, what do you want the president to say tonight? >> i think what the president going to say, brian, is he is going to look at the success we are seeing in iraq and syria. he is commander-in-chief who has given authority to his
3:19 am
commanders on the ground. loosened the rules of achievement. we have accelerating success there. is he going to look over at afghanistan, iran, pakistan and say well county same strategy work here? it's infinitely harder here bigger terrain. we will see him honor genic coal son's request for more troops. brian: 4,000. >> about 4,000 to train the afghan national army and police and the governance of afghanistan. brian: when we left iraq we lost our eyes and ears. congratulations you can go and then we had to go back and leave defeat jv team isis. you believe doing the same thing. >> iraq adventure and so when we pulled out, we took all our eyes out, all of our intelligence, all of our communications and so i think he is carefully considering can we manage this ungoverned space with intelligence, signals,
3:20 am
capability over the horizon, reaction capability, taking a look at that. genic coal son on the ground is a great commander. is he one of the best we have ever had there. he is a long, long term commander in afghanistan. he served under me in 2006-2007 when i was deputy commander there and now here he is as a four star general 10 years later. so he knows this. brian: you know better than anyone because you actually put on the camouflage that without addressing pakistan this is fool heart j. >> what president trump is seeing by going in to syria we have been able to have more success against isis. without providing sanctuary is he going again to look over at pakistan and iran and say we need to be able to deal with knows areas as well. i think we will see a broadening of this strategy there. brian: don't be surprised if he is looking at some of the natural resources in afghanistan and teaches them a way forward to she can start financing this war themselves and to the paying the salary for 100,000 afghan forces. >> power, diplomatic information.

organization. needing 100 signatures on a petition in less than a week. the petition states that the group has earned this title due to violent actions in a number of cities. all right. that's some of the news, ainsley. ainsley: thank you, steve. outrage over civil war monuments making its way to the u.s. cap toll. nancy pelosi is chiming in the confederate statues in the halls of congress have always been reprehensible. if the republicans are genuine i call on speaker ryan to join democrats to remove the confederate statues from the capitol immediately. are they serious and playing politics here? or is this a winning strategy. a drank strategist and professor at johns hopkins university as well as katrina pearson. she is a spokesperson for america first policies and former spokesperson for the president's campaign. good morning, ladies, to both of you. >> good morning. ainsley: katrina, i will start with you, do you think
3:26 am
that speaker ryan should join in with nancy pelosi and take down confederate monuments that are in the halls of congress? >> absolutely not, ainsley, look. how long has nancy pelosi been in washington, d.c.? those monuments have been there for a very long time and suddenly nancy pelosi wants to actually help these anarchists and these violent protesters tear down pieces of america. american culture and american history. the only place that that is being done right now is by isis and i really don't think you should have leaders actually encouraging people to do these types of things. because americans actually love their history, their culture, good and bad because it helps them learn and it helps keep people educated about why america is so great to begin with. ainsley: wendy, according to a recent poll, most americans agree with katrina. the npr/pbs news hour marist poll 60% want to keep them the way they are, 27 percent said to remove them. what are your thoughts? >> we have to be mindful
3:27 am
that polls are not predictful but reflective of a current trend. what's being lost in the entire conversation is the history from which confederate monuments sprung from. it came after the south lost the war. 650,000 people died and the southerners were considered treasonous. on top of this, this sprung up after december 1865 when the ku klux klan actually was trying to revolt against black local power that came about during the redestructionist era. so this is not a symbol of patriotism. this is a symbol of hatred and division. and while i it is a piece of american history, not necessarily the good part of american history. actually neff farrous. doesn't deserve a place on state grounds. it deserves a place on museums. >> it absolutely deserves a place. that history is still good history for this country. >> slavery is good history? >> where we are today. >> slavery is good history? absolutely. oh, wow. >> during those times, think
3:28 am
about this for a second, where would we be today if not for that civil war? >> where would we be without civil war? where would we be without slavery do you know what you are saying. >> how special and how country this country. >> how special slavery is. people have died? ainsley: ladies, listen to me, please. clearly a heated topic. katrina, it's clearly a heated issue. no one is racist. >> people have founded this country. ainsley: let me talk, please. >> absolutely not. this country was founded on slavery. ainsley: ladies. please. >> put in a place to change the laws and to. >> you are completely out of line. on tv and said slavery is okay. >> no one said slavery was okay. >> that's what you just said. ainsley: ladies, ladies. i'm done you can't -- can i both ask a question. ladies is, this a winning issue. katrina, listen to me, please. >> absolutely not. ainsley: the president got more african-american votes than mitt romney did. is this a winning issue he
3:29 am
won because of jobs, jobs, jobs. no one wants to be racist and no one wants bigotry. is there a compromise here? should state leaders take over, governors decide ministry. nikki haley decided to take down the confederate flag in south carolina. >> that's where the decision belongs. >> this is a losing argument at the national level. >> no, it's not. >> issue should be decided in municipalities who make those kind of decisions. you cannot have people causing violence and chaos to make these types of changes. because that turns americans off. americans want jobs. they want to make sure that they can send our kids to college. they want to make sure we can put food on the table. they are not really considered about a statue that they don't even know exists. >> we are concerned, ainsley. to answer your question. these are symbols of hatred and they cause division in our country. quite frankly, we should allow the states to decide but for anyone to come on national tv and have the flawed rhetoric that these are symbols of america and what is good in america is
3:30 am
absolutely statistically dubious. and that language right there is what causes inflammatory behavior and inflammatory actions on u.s. soil. so we have to be mindful. >> people don't respect our culture and some people don't believe in violence to change things. >> slavery is violence. ainsley: thank you both. it's the russia story democrats don't want to talk about. did it workers hired by debbie wasserman shultz sell american secrets to moscow? and great american eclipse is just a few hours away. get the kids ready janice dean is live where my momma was born in south carolina. isn't it a great city? janice: ainsley, this is a beautiful, beautiful city. and more importantly, it is in the path of totality. it is totality awesome. we're going to be talking about this path of the so he lal eclipse that's going to go coast to coast for the first time in almost 100 years. are you ready, america? it is happening in a city

3:46 am
here to break down the latest details in the case is luke rosiak of the daily caller who really has owned the story. luke, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: there is a story tout there that federal investigators are looking into whether or not sensitive data could have been stolen from these members of congress and then ultimately sold to pakistan or russia tell us about that. >> what i know and i have been following these guys for six months is that there has been a criminal investigation into these guys for a year and a half now and it covers cyber security. and theft. and what we know is these guys did have the opportunity and the motive to monday advertise data. they had all the emails and files of dozens of members of congress. they had debbie wasserman shultz' ipad password. and they had just this tremendous thirst for money. they were seemingly willing to do anything for money. they are even in basically they swindled their stepmom out of 50 grand and made her homeless even though theist guys own seven houses.
3:47 am
total pursuit of money and obviously data is something that can be very. steve: looking into whether or not national security was at play here. tell us as well about a chief of staff to a democratic member of congress who now is under scrutiny because they kind of changed the protocol. >> yeah. and so some the details of the basic theft that is suspected on capitol hill are coming out. and they were filling out basically they were buying all this equipment and making it so that central resources and house central administrators couldn't track these items and then these items were disappearing and they were apparently being sold. so, for example, in yvette clark's office representative out of new york city. her chief of staff signed off on this form that basically made this problem of $120,000 in missing equipment go go away. this was one of these awan brothers who said you know all that equipment we bought and this is one tenth of
3:48 am
their annual budget is missing. instead of calling the cops and instead of firing this guy, instead of bringing this to authorities, the chief of staff did none of that they signed this form that basically said it's no big deal and swept it under the rug. and that is just the highly unusual thing. because these offices aren't that big. when $1.2 million in tech equipment goes missing, it's like that could be, you know, 150 ipads. an office with 15 employees, like why did they ever sign off on those purchase orders? because the intent of this scheme was to keep the chief administrative officer as it's called of the house but that doesn't explain why members of congress didn't see. they would have seemingly known something was up with computers. that's when you start thinking about is there a financial component there or is this potentially maybe data that's being used as leverage because members of congress have got to explain what went on here and they are just not talking. steve: luke, why is this not
3:49 am
a bigger story on the other channels and in the big newspapers? >> you would have to ask them. steve: what do you think? >> what they have been saying so far is that these guys have been charged with bank fraud. by the way basically so far two of these guys indicted for basically part of the coverup rather than the crime. investigation is proceeding. they haven't been indicted to something directly pertains to capitol hill work. this is what we today in my story. steve: very good. check it out at the daily call. luke rosiak we thank you for joining us from our nation's capital. all right. 10 minutes before the top of the hour on this monday. president trump taking his feud with arizona senator jeff flake right to jeff flake's doorstep with a rally in phoenix tomorrow. he is endorsing his primary opponent dr. kelli ward. she is going to join us life in the next hour. and her army ranger father died in a black hawk helicopter crash when she was just 3 years old. but he still inspires her today.

them a chance to prove what they want. and their strategy. but he is also a man who will reflect on that over the coming weeks and months. and he is able to change it if he decides this is not working. brian: we know he took the handcuffs off in syria and a blowing up the caliphate. took the handcuffs off in mosul and about to take their country back. let's talk about now that vacation is about over. the president is back on the white house. he actually was never on vacation that was poorly communicated. they are rebuilding the west wing. he has worked 20 hours a day. having said that do you think it's important, david bossie, just from you personally knowing the president and the hill for him to put out the hand to jeff flake, to lindsey graham, and mitch mcconnell that he has been clashing with through the media? >> some of those people, you know, in politics there is the front of the hand and the back of the hand.

professor. jonathan turley who knows. we have to change the at that point toll. let's talk about this. is there a legal precedent for tearing this stuff down? >> well, legally, people can do whatever they want with statues. it doesn't mean that it's wise. the fact is history is complex. one of the things that law professors and historians try to teach students is that history is not that neat. you learn from it. including the mistakes. these statues represent sort of markers in our history. where we evolved. george washington was a transitional figure in that sense. at the end of his life, he was steadfastly opposed to slavery. he is the only founder and the only slave-owning president who freed his slaves at the end of his life. he even required that some of the slaves be given life-time pensions to support them. now, does that excuse the fact that he was a slave owner? of course it doesn't. that's where we need to learn from those types of
4:27 am
great and horrible mistakes. but that doesn't mean that we remove their images. we need to understand who these people were. ainsley: you bring up a good point because there are some statues, there is a long list of individual states and what statues they are removing in the "new york times." there are some people ruled that african-americans both enslaved and free could not be american citizens. so i of course i think most people would agree those statues or those monuments need to be torn down but when you look at the history, you look at these people, george washington you said ended up doing a good thing at the end of his life by freeing his slaves and giving them pensions. where is the limit though? because have you got this bishop in chicago who wants to take down george washington and andrew jackson's statues. where is the limit? brian: former presidents. >> that's why i think would need to have a civil debated about how we deal with these founders and these images. at princeton there is a movement to strip woodrow wilson's name from that

4:43 am
who have this condition. restasis multidose helps increase your eyes' natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation due to chronic dry eye. restasis multidose did not increase tear production in patients using anti-inflammatory eye drops or tear duct plugs. to help avoid eye injury and contamination, do not touch the bottle tip to your eye or other surfaces. wait 15 minutes after use before inserting contact lenses. the most common side effect is a temporary burning sensation. your eyes. your tears. ask your eye doctor about restasis multidose. brian: all right. some quick headlines right now. let's begin with burglary. thieves get clever and destructive. robinson, arkansas, decided to rip an atm out of the ground taking it to unknown location without cameras catching a glimpse of faces

4:46 am
official, you know, the denouncing of the person should be quick. now, if there is an issue where there are multiple actors and multiple investigations that need to go on, it's different. but, in this case, she actually the tweet was screen captured as well as she admitted to tweeting. so the democratic party and the republican party should have been all over her instantly denouncing this behavior of even saying that she wanted our president dead. absolutely unacceptable. ainsley: christie, there have been a few democrats that have come out and said it was wrong for her to say that. she needs to step down. where is the outcry from the democratic party like you would see them going against president trump when he is -- they are so upset about these fringe groups. where is the majority of the democratic party when she says that she wants someone to kill the president of the united states? >> i think the majority of the democratic party is going about their business not really paying attention to what one random state senator from missouri. ainsley: what if the shoe
4:47 am
were on the other foot? >> the shoe is on the other foot. ainsley: saying this about a democratic president. >> i think that probably happens all of the time. and it didn't get news coverage. we are talking about president trump because he is the president. let's also go back to this woman and say that she did delete it immediately apologized. and roundly condemned by state senators and democratic leadership in missouri. that is the difference. when we are talking about the president of the united states, inciting the violence that he did throughout the campaign, when he had these fights happening at his rallies and we had his supporters beating up on protesters and on black people at his rallies, what did he do? he said i hope they take them out in a stretcher. he said, you know, i will pay your legal bills if you actually get in trouble for beating up protesters. he incited it along the way. and, again, he is not a state senator. he is the most important and powerful person in the united states setting a terrible and appalling tone
4:48 am
for the rest of the country. ainsley: what do you want to say? >> if i may respond, what i want to say is that the democratic party, the g.o.p. has ton do item hate and violence and any incitement of violence. immediately, especially like i said when the facts are undisputed. they are undisputed in this case. she admitted it and it was cause in a scree saver. during the campaign trump supporters were attacked and abused. imagine me a black woman who decided not to vote for hillary, i'm a democrat, i have been getting death threats. my family is not safe. at least i'm grateful that the president has secret service, at least his staff has secret service. a lot of trump supporters don't have that. so, imagine if someone had taken that tweet that she did and went out to go and try to assassinate the president. then what are you going to say she is one random senator. she is more than enough to incite violence against people and enough is snuff.
4:49 am
ainsley: christie, last word. >> what she said was wrong. but that's very different than doing things that are wrong. we saw a very violent. >> it was diabolical. ainsley: let her talk. >> someone actually died because of violent speech and violent behavior. on the part of the neo nazis who support donald trump, who they endorsed him in their newspaper. >> they endorsed hillary, too. >> they did not endorse. >> yes they did. $20,000. >> donald trump refused. >> in her campaign. >> refused to denounce several days that is wrong. >> he denounced them flatly on saturday. >> and then he took it back on the following day. >> he denounced them. ainsley: okay. >> denounce all hate. all hate. >> didn't mean it. >> we reject it as americans. we reject it. >> i mean it i don't think he did. ainsley: ladies, thank you so much. >> god bless you and god bless america.

along the uss john mccain in prayers. the rescue crews. and as you mention, this is bad news for the navy. it's the fourth major incident in the pacific involving u.s. ships. just a few days ago, guys. on friday the uss fitzgerald was relieved of duty in june when collided with the container ship off the coast of japan. that did claim the lives, tragically of seven sailors. the u.s. fleet calling that incident avoidable. so a lot of questions will be asked. but right now it's all on deck and prayers going out to finding those sailors that are missing. steve: chris, thank you very much. brian: meanwhile, tomorrow -- excuse me, tonight at 9:00, the president of the united states is going to be talking about a plan for afghanistan going forward. and general mattis made it clear. this is going to be a strategy center. he's not going to get out of the president. didn't last night. this is a south asia strategy. not just about afghanistan, which makes me hopeful that we're going to go in for the

5:05 am
friday where the president called everybody and said. okay. look, i have described this as a disaster. i look at the maps, it looks like we're losing. what do we do? while no details really have leaked out to the white house's credit, you talk to the various people who were in that room, and they have said for a while the only way to win the mission is to modestly increase the troop levels. also, keep training the afghan military. also keep on the ground cia and special forces people to keep the bad guys in check. so look for something along those lines, although we won't know for sure until the president takes the stage at the fort across the river from the white house tonight at 9:00 p.m. you'll see it right here on the channel. brian: evidently, there's only 7% of the afghan forces are special ops. but they're doing 70% of the fighting. we're paying for everybody. they've got to get more effective troops, we've got to make sure these afghan troops know that the you know what? we're not going to be doing this forever. you have to get your act
5:06 am
together and be productive. and i sense the president keeps talking about the natural resources that afghanistan has that are untapped. and the fact that the omb director in these meetings is going to find a way to mine some of their natural resources to get them to start paying for their own strength. steve: you mean take some of the oil or something? >> no. they have natural minerals and things that can benefit the afghan economy so that they can start living on their own. steve: because the president famously said in iraq, we probably should have taken some of that oil to pay for the cost of our treasure. ainsley: there's controversy in missouri. a local lawmaker, a senator there, and she went on facebook, and she wrote a comment about how the president should be assassinated. she panicked, she immediately deleted it, and she waited four days to apologize. this is the latest. this is that senator, maria apologizing. listen. >> president trump, i apologize to you and your

family. i made a mistake. and you know what i'm reminded of? is that we are all human. and i'm also a child of god. i made a mistake. and i'm owning up to it. and i am not ever going to make a mistake like that again, and i have learned my lesson. my judge and my jury is my lord, jesus christ. steve: you know, it's interesting because she had refused to apologize. she did say that it was a mistake, but she said she would not apologize, and she would not resign. don't know what happened in the last 24 hours. but obviously, she decided you know what? i'm going to go ahead and apologize. but at the same time, you've got one of the most powerful democrats in missouri who said she's got to go. but then again, claire is running for reelection, and that's what you would expect her to say. so now she has apologized, but she will not leave her job,
5:08 am
although the governor, who is a republican, has said -- he said on friday that if she doesn't leave the job, the state senate can move to remove her. so anyway. ainsley: brian, what do you think? should she step down? brian: i think it's a story that's done. she apologized, let her stay. ainsley: yeah, i agree that she is a child of god, and we all want forgiveness, and i can forgive her absolutely. she's requesting that and asking for that. she did say something very nice to the president's family. please forgive me. however, she's still a leader. i do think she should step down. steve: look, she was talking about the assassination of the president of the united states, which is so beyond th beyond the pale. the thing about her, though, at this stage she has not resigned, she's going to be out of a job next year because in her particular district, she will be term limited, so just a limited time. ainsley: please keep those e-mails coming.
5:09 am
we're reading them all. they're all very interesting. in the meantime, we're just a few hours away from the most spectacular solar in the skies. brian: the eclipse is attributing many people over to oregon, located right in the epicenter of its path. dan springer is live. hey, dan. >> yeah. good morning, guys. you know, veteran eclipse watchers will tell you that unlike the game of horseshoes, close does not count. and that is why so many people have flocked to this path of totality all across the country, really. but oregon was long ago identified as a premier spot to watch this eclipse because of its high desert blue skies and also because it's right in the center of the 70-mile wide path of darkness. so tens of thousands of people either drove here or flew in. 500, in fact, by private planes. they're here from los angeles, new york, and well beyond. we even caught up from a guy from dublin, ireland who's going to see his fourth total eclipse. he describes the crowd
5:10 am
reaction when day turns to night. >> everyone was just with joy, with wonder, experience the phenomenon that maybe 2,000 years ago that we were terrified of. >> many people brought high-powered telescopes and sophisticated cameras. nasa believes that this will be the most studied eclipse of all time. just because 200 million people can get to the path in one day's drive. now, matt henry is among 1,500 amateur scientists who will be uploading pictures for a google movie on the event. thousands have also helped nasa collect data. everything from plant life to animal sounds. total darkness here will last for two minutes. this shadow will race across the country and start on the oregon coast. and 90 minutes later off the coast of south carolina. so it moves very fast. but for those who magical minutes people here will be in awe. guys, back to you. steve: dan, when it does go directly over you, will it be
5:11 am
as dark as it is right now? or it's just going to be much dimmer? >> it will be not quite as dark because you're going to see the corona. the burning gases on the sun. the sun will be covered but the burning gases will be visible. ainsley: the corona. steve: i saw a corona yesterday. ainsley: me too. steve: dan springer live out in oregon. thank you very much. brian: 11 minutes after the hour. coming up, her presidential campaign has been over for months. so why is hillary clinton still paying aberdeen tens of thousands of dollars in campaign cash? ainsley: and trying to get the president's response from the violence in charlottesville. listen. >> the president said tuesday quote there were very fine people on both sides. who were those very fine people marching with the neonazis? do you believe there were very fine people? ainsley: jerry defended president trump, and he is going to join us live next

5:23 am
that the families of fallen and wounded heroes are never left behind. brian: and this year for the third time in event history, golf legend jack nicholas will help kick off the national golf day. ainsley: pete, help me with that. that's a great name and honorary chairman of patriot golf legend jack nicholas. they all join us now. thank you, all, for being with us. what an honor. we salute you, major dan and all the service that you do for this country and all the great people that you help. tell us about your organization and what patriot golf day is. >> well, ainsley, ear mission is to leave no family behind on the field of battle. patriot golf day is the most heroic round golfers have the opportunity to play over the weekend. and we have donations coming in from thousands of golf courses across this country to provide scholarships for spouses and children who have had someone killed or disabled.
5:24 am
ten years we've been at this and to have mr. nicholas, who is the greatest golfer of all time, but i know him as one of the greatest patriots i've ever met and together with the pga of america and 29,000 members, we've raised $28 million and almost 7,000 scholarships and what i think is the most patriotic game. the game of golf. steve: why is it -- i'm sure organizations come to you every day and say we would love to have you involved with us. why was it jack nicholas himself wanted to get involved with folds of honor? >> well, first of all, i didn't have the opportunity to serve my country. and the military that i think so highly of the military and the men and women who have served and major dan came to me, and we got to know each other and the mission that he was on that made a lot of
5:25 am
sense to me, and i thought it was very worth while. you've got 6800 scholarships now. >> yeah. through patriot golf day and 60,000 since we started. >> it's unbelievable how much good is done and the pga of america is involved. i'm obviously a pga member, and it's just something that i think our country is long needed and something that major dan has taken forward and taken the bull by the horns and done it. brian: pete, i know how you feel. i hope you end with a bigger name after today, so you're stuck with jack nicholas. i'm kidding. but it's going to be an excuse too for people who are patriotic and know that their green is going to go to a great cause; right? >> it's great to use the game of golf for such a great cause. and partner with jack who's such a great friend of the pga of america. i'm proud pga of america has
5:26 am
really been there since day one. you go back ten years ago, and i know there's a phone call from major dan to our past president brian, and they started this relationship. and for the pba professionals to be part of this, i know through the help of pga professionals all around the country, we will have raised with major dan over $6 million. we're on track to do better than that this year. and it's all -- it's what we're about. it's what the pga of america is about. our foundation pga reach fits so squarely into our strategy. and anything you can do with jack nicholas is obviously great for the game of golf. ainsley: major dan, i know you have something special for jack nicholas. what is it? >> i do. and mr. nicholas is our honorary chairman this year, and i will say in the opportunity of presence of the great people. i get chills sitting next to him and looking at him and what he has done with all the major champions, and i know
5:27 am
you've had six green jackets, but we commissioned a special jacket for you so you're properly outfitted here. this is the a2 jacket that we've won as aviators since the great war. freedom is not free. and with his name on there, jack nicholas, the golden bear as we know and love him. really, the most iconic patriotic golfer who has ever played the game. and it's an honor for pete and i on behalf of our 16,000 recipients and the 29,000 men and women that make up the pga of america and combat aviators, we salute you for using your talents for good. >> well, thank you very much, major dan. and, you know, if you all want to help out there, go to folds of honor.org and if you want to donate money or go play patriot golf day, call your nearest golf course. it's a thing that we all need
5:28 am
to do. and i remember the last time major dan and i beat was about four shots. steve: i heard him tell that story. pete and jack and major dan, thank you very much for joining us. and once again, folks down at the bottom of the screen, foldsofhonor.org is a way you can support. ainsley: it's great and great so many golf courses are participating in it. brian: i don't think jack has to golf with a jacket, though; right? steve: he's down in palm beach, florida. it's about 100 degrees. ainsley: i doubt it would mess with his game, though. brian: i wouldn't wear leather today. that's a good message for anybody. steve: absolutely. cool jacket. all right. straight ahead, canadian prime minister justin trudeau says episode he wants to build bridges to canada. not walls. but has a problem on his hands. it turns out this bridges are pretty popular with canadians. ainsley: and what's shaping up
5:29 am
to be a big news for the white house.
5:30 am
5:31 am
5:32 am
when itrust the brandtburn, doctors trust. nexium 24hr is the number one choice of doctors and pharmacists for their own frequent heartburn. and all day, all night protection. when it comes to heartburn, trust nexium 24hr. steve: all right. it is the 30 minutes past the top of the hour, author of president trump, new york times best-seller. newt gingrich. good morning to you. >> good to see you. steve: okay. so steve bannon is out at the white house. how do things change now for president? >> oh, i don't think very dramatically for the president. i think bannon was one of the sources of ideas, but i think
5:33 am
ban will be a source of ideas on the outside. what you're seeing is general kelly's ability to organize structured white house. and that's something the president has needed very badly. i think that general kelly, he has somebody who could be the kind of chief of staff that jim baker was to ronald reagan. and i think if they continue to work together well, i think you'll see a very steady improvement in the routine effectiveness of the administration. and i think in that kind of environment, steve bannon is much more of a free spirit -- i once said that he was a pirate serving in the u.s. navy, and i think he preferred to go back to being a pirate. and he'll be on the outside attacking things he doesn't like and arguing -- offering ideas the president will sometimes adopt. brian: the area you know quite well, which is what goes on in congress how it relates to the white house whether you have a rapport democrat in there. what i'm pretty amazed at over the last few weeks, bob has been critical of this president. doubles down, and then you
5:34 am
have a book coming out by senator jeff flake, which is very dismissive of president trump's agenda and his populous candidacy. what would you like to see the president do in order to push his agenda forward, even if he dislikes who these people are, he needs them. how does he get them in the fold? >> well, look, i think there are three key steps. the first is already taken. john kelly has tremendous relationships with both democrats and republicans. he was the marine liaison to the house when he was speaker. he served for two different secretaries of defense. he understands washington very well, and he's respected on both sides of the aisle. that's step number one. step number two, the president's got to learn to think in team terms. i know just had jack nicholas on who is maybe one of the greatest golfer or one or two of the greatest golfers of all time. one of the challenges of golf
5:35 am
in a way is a individual sport. it's you against the course. the game is now in as a team sport. and i think he needs to think like a team leader and team builder, and that's a very big change for somebody who is used to playing an individual sport. so if he's going to be successful on capitol hill, he's going to have to build a trump team. and a lot of the people you just mentioned in the long run may end up on that team if he works with them. the last thing he has got to do, being very candid here, he has got to quit stepping on himself. he had a very good infrastructure press conference the other day, and then he stepped on it, blew it, guaranteed that it wouldn't get covered. that's just -- that's like a quarterback who goes out and throws the ball down to the other side and fumbles on the first play of every possession. he's got to be more discipline, and he's got to work as part of a team. and then i think generally, he could end up being a remarkably great president. but he's got to make a couple of mid-course corrections. ainsley: you know, he might be doing that.
5:36 am
tennis, golf, individual sports until you go to college, and then you're on a team. and then the president asking all of these generals to come and be with him at catcher david, that is a sign he's working with a team. he's asking the experts in that field what he should do about afghanistan. he's going to be talking about afghanistan tonight at 9:00 fort meyer, which is in arlington, virginia and talking in front of the troops and telling them i realize your lives are important. but i am consulting the experts and these generals who have your best interest in mind. what do you think the president -- what is he going to tell the american people tonight? >> well, first of all, you put your finger on one of the places where he's had a real break through. he's had a superb national security team with secretary tillerson and general kelly, mattis, and general mcmaster. so i think nobody could argue he's doing this without having thought it through and having first rate people thinking through what he's going to do. i think what he's going to say is very simple. and it relates back to what has happened in barcelona and
5:37 am
what we see happening around the world. we are in the long-term struggle with terrorism, with islamist supremacist. we know that the last time we allowed afghanistan to be an empty space, it was filled with the taliban and by al-qaeda and the planning for 9/11 was done in afghanistan. we know if we pull out and the government collapses, you're going to have some combination of rices, al-qaeda, and the taliban running the country again. that's a long-term very real threat to the united states and europe and all of our allies. and i think what he's going to say is that there's a prudent investment, probably 4- 5,000 troops that allows us to train the afghan army, which combined with a new level of pressure and the pakistanis to clean up the northwest frontier, which is the sanctuary that the terrorists have been using, could lead us over the next few years into a much better future. i think you're going to see relatively fewer american casualties, you're going to
5:38 am
see a real emphasis on training the afghans, and i think in the long run that will be the right strategy. brian: of course, they have to start learning to fight. we've been training for 16 years. special ops are doing it but no one else is. real quick. would you have open up with clarification on his stance on race relations? >> i think i would have the president talk about bringing us together and then -- beyond race are helations. remember, an awful a lot of the people who have been demonstrators on the left aren't african-american or latino. they're white radicals. so i think the president can look legitimately say he would like to be the president of all the people. but that requires people coming together and talking with each other, rather than fighting each other. i think a speech like that would be very helpful to the entire country, and would probably be reputeiated by the hard left. steve: all right. let's see. that's tomorrow night. you'll see it here on the channel. and you've just watched newt gingrich on the channel.
5:39 am
what a show, i'm telling you. ainsley: thank you very much, mr. speaker. brian: by the way, he's in training to be a diplomat spouse right now. steve: there you go. ainsley: really? brian: yeah. ainsley: spouse training. brian: going through spouse training. ainsley: jillian has headlines right now. >> good morning, guys. good morning to you as well. the memorial on the national mall is getting an update on the wake of recent controversy over civil war-era statues. the exhibit alongside thomas jefferson will have a disclaimer to reflect quote the complexity of his status as the founder of the u.s. and the slave holder. a nonprofit group that provides critical support for the national mall is making the change to get ahead of any controversy. no one has actually complained yet. canadian prime minister justin trudeau welcomed the flood of immigrants with open arms. but now he's asking them politely please come here illegally. >> canada is an opening and welcoming society, but let me be clear. we are also a country of
5:40 am
laws. >> trudeau sounding the alarm stressing that anyone seeking refugee status will have to go through the country's rigorous screening process saying crossing illegally gives you no advantage. his comments come as the government grapples with a surge of asylum seekers crossing into québec. hillary clinton's failed presidential campaign is long over. but one of her top aids is still getting paid. federal election commission filings show aberdeen has been paid nearly $65,000 in campaign money since november. going through late june. and she's not the only one. clinton's former press secretary and another aid are also getting checks. look at your headlines as we look at you guys. brian: i haven't seen her in front of the prompt in a long time. ainsley: the media are trying to get conservatives to come out in response to the violence in charlottesville. >> the president said tuesday there were quote very fine
5:41 am
people on both sides. who were those very fine people marching with the neonazis? do you believe they were very fine people? ainsley: jerry defended president trump, and he's going to join us live next. brian: and the great american eclipse is just hours away and janice dean is live in greensville, south carolina to make sure no one looks. hi. steve: yes, i have some of my friends here from greenville, south carolina. are you guys excited for the great american eclipse? please stay with us at fox and friends. we're going to talk all about it. wave to everybody at home in our glasses. americans - 83% try to eat healthy.

5:45 am
past it after what happened on tuesday. and going up and saying do you agree with what president trump says? listen. >> the president said tuesday there were quote very fine people on both sides. who were those very fine people marching with the neonazis? do you believe there were very fine people on both sides? and also your idea that donald trump somehow knows there were good people. brian: jerry is one of the many conservatives getting grilled over the president's remarks, but he knows the president. and what he stands for. that's why he backed him. and we send some of the frustration yesterday, jerry. always good to see you on the air. so do you feel as though the president's being misrepresented, or do you think he should clarify what he said on tuesday to make backers like who know him like you life easier? >> i think he was very clear who the culprits were because he called out the nazis, the
5:46 am
white supremacist, the kkk members by name. he didn't call out the ones who committed violence on the other side by name. he never mentioned. he made it clear there was no moral equivalence between the two, and i think he should be commented for that. we had a president not too long ago who refused to call radical islamic terrorist by its name, and i'm glad we finally have a leader who calls evil what it is. you know, the media has tried to portray this as a philosophical war between the right and the left. between blacks and whites. between jews and gentiles, but it's nothing but pure evil versus good. and we all need to be united to fight any form of terrorism, whether it comes from timothy mcveigh in oklahoma city or from this group in -- crazy people in charlottesville or the ones who were flying the planes into the world trade center or isis attacking people in barcelona. it's all pure evil, and we all need to be united against it.
5:47 am
brian: jerry, i'm watching the video yesterday. this incredible documentary. they put someone vetted with these white nationalists. these people are despicable human beings. and just to put them on camera and show what they're about. and they're not about robert e lee. they're about forwarding a white nationalist agenda. but anyone who knows the president knows it has nothing to do with his movement and this success. and i get the sense after looking at's tweets yesterday when he had a similar thing happen in boston. although, much better police. he came out and understood it. he saluted those who came out against the white nationalists and said i want to applaud the protesters in boston who were speaking out against bigotry and hate. our country will soon come together as one. do you sense that that's moyer of the president that you know? >> president donald trump does not have a racist bone in his body. i know him well.
5:48 am
he loves all people. he has helped so well to help minorities in inner cities. to bring jobs back to them. he says. african-american has skyrocketed since he has become president. he's doing all the right things for the people that are in need, the minorities. and i think it's unfair for -- you know, he has an impressive way of saying things sometimes. and the the fact that he said there's good people marching within the bad people. those good people should have looked around and saw the people with the confederate flags and -- brian: got out of there. >> yeah. brian: i have to bring you to this. the accusation that he supports antisemantic behavior devise logic. he has people who have worked in his office that are jewish for 30 years. his daughter converted. you have steve mnuchin who
5:49 am
were urging him to resign says i feel compelled that the president is in no way shape, or form believes that neonazis or the hate group that endorse violence to demonstrate in peaceful and lawful ways. he's jewish. there's no way he would work for someone jewish. the president is getting mislabeled here in a way that he doesn't even -- it's so without fact, he doesn't even feel compelled to defend himself. should he? >> well, i think one of the first things that he did was rebuild a relationship with israel, with benjamin netanyahu. i've been in contact with friends in the community in charlottesville. and i can understand their fear. they had these terrorists marching outside on the sidewalk. right outside their synagogue, and it's all understandable. but president trump is not the source of any of that anti-semitism, and it's just completely unfair and it's a false narrative from the left and from the media.
5:50 am
brian: jerry, thank you so much for joining us. appreciate your perspective. >> good to be with you, brian. brian: i would love the president to include that, if he feels compelled to on tuesday just to reinforce it because that message is just not getting out. meanwhile, the total solar eclipse is just hours away. janice dean is celebrating with friends in south carolina. but first, let's check in with bill who was outstanding filling in yesterday. >> it was a high honor. we're going to have reporters everywhere for this eclipse, so this is going to be fun today. what will the president do in afghanistan today? the white house challenging the congress getting it done on the agenda. will that happen? the death toll climbing higher after the attack on spain. what do we know now about that terror cell in barcelona? and how do you remember the leif of jerry lewis? we'll see you in ten minutes. shannon and i will see you at the top of the hour here on america's newsroom ♪
