heather: 7 you are watching "fox and friends" first this tuesday morning. rob: thank you for starting your day with us. donald trump setting a new strategy for the war in afghanistan shifting focus from nationbuilding to killing terrorists. heather: here is reaction on the commander-in-chief ramping up pressure on pakistan. >> reporter: the president vowing to fight to win committing the world's greatest fighting force, it will not be unlimited, not a blank check, certainly it will be ones that he hopes will lead us to victory, here is what the president had to say. >> we will not dictate to the afghan people how to live or how to govern their own complex society. we are not nationbuilding again.
we are killing terrorists. >> reporter: the new strategy won't be based on timelines but condition-based, no troop numbers were given but it is likely we will get the additional 4000 proposed, the new strategy puts pakistan unnoticed and asks india to shoulder more of the load and says it's victory will have a clear definition. the reaction was mixed. rand paul opposed to any troop increase but the mission in afghanistan has lost its purpose. 's fellow republican lindsey graham took the opposite view. >> i will fight senator paul tooth and nail to make sure we don't lose in afghanistan like we did in iraq. just exactly what president obama did in iraq, to leave against military advice. >> senator graham approving what will be a contentious appropriations fight with
congress. >> my colleagues in congress, you will own a no vote. the next 9/11 will be your fault, not donald trump's fault because this is a solid plan, this will turn things around. >> reporter: this as james matus landing in baghdad just a few hours ago meeting with prime minister and military leaders in the fight against isis. later today donald trump traveling to yuma, arizona visiting the marine corps base and a trip to the border at a big rally. >> a positive response overwhelmingly when you talk to people in the military or republicans. a couple things drastically different than president obama, no timetable, the rules of engagement on the ground by the generals instead of washington dc and the stated mission which is to not nationbuilding but instead killed terrorists.
>> a soundbite from lieutenant colonel oliver north. >> for the first time we have a definition of victory, attacking the enemy and obliterating isis and preventing the taliban from taking over and stopping terrorists from killing and attacking americans, straightforward, good stuff, the right thing to say in the aftermath of eight years of the previous administration, from time-based to condition-based decision and integrate the military, diplomatic and economic instruments. pakistan unnoticed and the idea of not giving way instances of when troops are coming are going and when we are going to attack very good, long overdue and obviously this will make a difference. >> nice to have a speech that made it seem more aggressive. a lot of people saw it as a sign of american strength and fortitude and world policy and stuff which we lacked in eight
years of obama which was passive and able to be nudged and trounced on a little bit. a quick soundbite from paul ryan as republicans liked what they heard last night. >> i heard for the first time a new trump strategy or doctrine so to speak, the principle of realism is how he described it. >> on the other side of the coin democrats immediately speaking out against what the president had to say. this is what nancy pelosi had to say, donald trump announced his decision to put thousands more americans in harm's way in afghanistan, the president's announcement in sharp contrast to the statements he made before he was president, tonight he said he knew what he was getting into and had a plan to go forward, clearly did not, the president's announcement low on details but raises serious
questions. low on detail specifically on purpose. we don't want to give away too much as we did previously. >> can't just wait house was we are going to do and make an effort as soon as we are done. some other news, fox news alert, people heard after a high-speed train crashed into another train parked in one of the busiest stations overnight, the 69th the transportation center in upper darby, pennsylvania, authorities say the train packed with people came flying around the corner, did not slow down before smashing into an empty train at the terminal, when passenger says it was experiencing issues right before the accident. >> my face hit the wall or a big hole in the wall and i went straight down and blacked out, there was blood everywhere, driver all banged up. >> incredible nobody was killed. 42 people were on the train and all 42 were injured including the train's conducted, four taken to the hospital in critical condition, one of the tracks shut down as police
investigate passengers should expect hefty delays during the morning rush because of this, still had a live report where investigators are digging through wreckage to figure out what happened here. heather: also breaking divers searching flooded compartments and rescue crews scouring the waters off of singapore's ten navy sailors remain unaccounted for as we learn a major security breach could have sent an oil tanker slamming into an american warship. kelly wright joins us with breaking details from overnight. >> reporter: fears of a cyber attack after the warship collision in the south china sea. on twitter chief of naval operations admiral john richardson revealing there is a possibility of cyber intrusion or sabotage. the military considering all possibilities but no word on any
potential suspects. the navy suspending operations for safety checks. >> i want our fleet command us to get together with leaders and commands to ensure we are taking all appropriate immediate actions to ensure safe and effective operations around the world. >> top priority, three navies, the us, singapore and malaysia are searching a large area for a second day with seventh fleet divers exploring flooded compartments on the ship in search of those missing sailors, donald trump expressing his concern during his national address on afghanistan. >> we send our thoughts and prayers to the families of brave sailors after a tragic collision at sea as well as those conducting the search and recovery efforts. >> the uss john mccain near singapore sustaining damage to its left side, water flooding
compartments of the ship. this is the fourth crash involving a u.s. navy destroyer ship this year. in june seven sailors were killed when the uss fitzgerald collided with a container ship off japan and the uss antietam ran aground near japan in january and the lake champlain collided with a fishing boat off the korean peninsula in may. the navy will be looking at how it qualifies junior officers to drive those ships and how sailors are trained to stand watch particularly in busy shipping lines like the strait of milan. rob: a massive search after a helicopter crash in hawaii, five people on board that military black hawk, two helicopters taking part in routine night training exercise when one went
missing, rescue crews found pieces of helicopter but those that is no signs of life. the army has not determined the cause of the crash. >> four men accused of being involved in the barcelona terror attacks appear in court just hours after the suspect the driver behind the van attack is shot dead by police, spanish authorities a 22-year-old aby a uakub was screaming allah u akbar before being gunned down just outside barcelona. he is believed to be the final member of the terror cell behind last week's deadly attacks. rob: protesters blast charlottesville city council members during their first meeting since those violent classes erupted in that city.
residents screaming and cursing at councilmembers calling for resignations as tensions escalated. speakers grabbed their agenda and start addressing concerns from the crowd as the charlottesville murder suspect appeared in court for the second time after being charged with 5 additional felonies, judge declining to set bonds for james fields who is accused of ramming his car into a crowd, killing one woman. some sad video to see here, vandal taking a sledgehammer to the oldest christopher columbus monument in the united states. that is a big piece of history. the video posted online showing the man walking up to the baltimore 225-year-old monument before striking it multiple times, a sign taped to the monument reads the future is racial and economic justice. one man narrated the entire video. >> slaveowners and murderers,
poverty is concentrated in african-american households and the statue is an extra slap in the face. >> police searching for the man who made the video. >> extreme weather, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake shattering the italian island killing at least two people and injuring 39 others, incredible video showing crews moments before they pull the 7-month-old baby from the rubble. the earthquake took out power on the entire island, crews still searching for a trapped residents and tourists. rob: is the event we all saw that brought the entire country to a standstill, millions of people looking at the sky, for some of us its older solar eclipse. >> many deliveries and politicians joining in on the
fun. george w. bush posting this photo with suite for generations of his family at their summer home in maine. >> first daughter ivanka trump dancing with her eclipse glances on. >> senator steen taking this selfy from greenville, south carolina. certainly looked like you had fun. people all over were trying to get the perfect shot. did you? >> we had a big shot and i have a package at the bottom of the hour i will share with you. it was incredible. everything i imagined and more and the weather was great. let's look at temperatures, 75 in new york, 75 in chicago, potential of strong storms across the great lakes and upper midwest and interior northeast, large hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes, if you live anywhere in these areas just know what to do, start watching. >> bottom of the hour my equally experience in greenville, don't
go away. >> did it get dark? >> yes and the temperature dropped and we had a little wind. we saw stars in the sky. exciting. it was a little cloudy in new york city but still remarkable. i will show you pictures of my trip and bring you there. 13 minutes after the hour. a sinister plot thwarted. how terrorists were planning to use a barbie doll to blow up a plane. >> if you don't learn from history and have those reminders how do we move forward? >> history or hate? controversy over confederate monuments making its way to new york city. we hit the streets to see what people really think. >> a look at how some of you watched the historic eclipse yesterday. here is a frequent "fox and friends" guest, doctor nicole safire. >> another viewer, this photo from south florida. >> these photos as well.
>> welcome back, from coast-to-coast schools across america deifying our president vowing to protect illegal immigrants as superintendent and school board members how to shield students personal data and block ice from school property. a new sanctuary school policy includes training teachers to federal agents show up, about 1 million undocumented children live in the us. hassles over hats. high school students said they were harassed at howard university for wearing pro-donald trump year. visiting the historically black college in dc with her high school she said a man started cursing at her. someone else snatching her friend's hat off of her and got it back but the students marked
and other students videos and pictures of them calling them racist. the university responding in part students represent all that is right about america. rob: confederate monuments under fire, monuments to christopher columbus for alleged crimes committed against native people in the west indies when he discovered them and calls for monuments to george washington to be ripped down, washington was a slave owner as well as america's first president and a founding father who led america to victory against the british. we talked to people in manhattan which holds some spectacular monuments that are city's mayor is reviewing and deciding whether or not to ripped down. >> what do you think of calls for monuments like this to be taken down. >> a little ridiculous we have gotten to a point in this
country where political correctness is overflowing. >> to tear that down and the race it seems pretty pathetic i guess. >> seeking independence from great britain and in great britain there were slaveowners too. >> if we don't learn from history and have those reminders how do we move forward? >> the difference between the ones that were put up directly after the civil war and the ones that were put up in the 60s which had an intention of intimidating. >> this is the melting pot, let's have some emotions melt a little and show a little love to our fellow americans. >> we talk to new yorkers, tourists, international tourists, people from london. in new york city any monument that could be perceived as
hateful or offensive is under a 90 day review, it should be interesting to see how this turns out. a recent poll by pbs news hour showed that 62% of people think confederate monuments should remain as a historic symbol. you see even with the confederate monuments which more people have an understanding of it is offensive they say they should remain. when you talk about christopher columbus, what percentage of people think monuments of christopher columbus should be ripped down? >> many people have a problem because they say he dealt with slaves and had slaves but the thing is we talked about that yesterday and it is interesting when you look at the amount of confederate soldiers all over the country what do you do about that and who determines what offends someone or not, that is the question here in new york city as well. 20 minutes after the top of the hour, check your cabinets, the baby powder you have could be linked to cancer.

especially during an eclipse not without sunglasses, regular glasses. yelling don't look. the president did put on those glasses that are super tinted, black almost joining melania. >> he didn't have any glasses on but the real star in washington, attorney general jeff sessions, this photo of him holding his hand looking up instantly going viral and when you wish upon a star. >> looking like a kid on christmas morning. we all look like that. >> joe says most adorable eclipse photo goes to jeff sessions. >> 2:00 news alert donald trump refocusing his strategy on war in afghanistan shifting the focus from nationbuilding to
killing terrorists. >> in washington dc, reaction on our commander-in-chief ramping up the pressure on pakistan. >> good morning. noting the frustration of amerigas longest war donald trump pledged to fight to win committing the world's greatest fighting force morning the united states commitment is not unlimited and not a blank check making clear the stated goal in afghanistan. >> we are a partner and friend, we will not dictate to the afghan people how to live or how to govern their own complex society. we are not nationbuilding again. we are killing terrorists. >> reporter: the new strategy will be condition based, not on a timeline, no troop members were given but will start with 4000 additional troops with pakistan on notice and from now on victory will have a clear definition.
reaction was mixed conservative senator rand paul firmly opposing any troop increases saying the mission in afghanistan lost its purpose, paul ryan told the town hall last night he supports the president's strategy because it would stop another haven for terrorists being created. ambassador to the united states told hannity this is what is needed. we don't have that but he basically said for the first time this is needed for a long time and it comes as secretary of defense james matus arriving in baghdad meeting with the prime minister and military leaders in this fight against isis and terrorism, donald trump had the arizona later today to visit the border in a marine corps base and then finish with a rally in phoenix. >> that does bring us to a talking point this morning, lindsey graham says the
president's plan for a get afghanistan of the ship from the failing plan of his predecessors. >> i'm proud of the fact that donald trump made a national security decision, not a political decision and listened to the generals and shows the will to stand up to radical islam. winning a war you can't afford to lose, the game has changed for pakistan and afghanistan, he is trusting his military, giving them authority obama never gave them and we are going to make our decisions based on conditions on the ground, not arbitrary passing of time so hats off to donald trump not becoming general trump because general obama was a lousy general and that is the mess we are inheriting, general obama tried to play a job he wasn't qualified to play. >> be sure to not miss ainsley

campaign. rob: he -- in politicians who don't know anything about this, working in general, making deals like sending billions to pakistan, a country that harbors terrorists. it is a joke when you talk to most people, he connected with that. >> there is a lot who worked in the region who were incredibly frustrated that we haven't held assad more accountable. the facts remain, you are on the glyph. >> let's talk about that. >> we have been paying pakistan billions and billions of dollars at the same time they are housing the very terrorists we
