>> he's got to stop the missile testing that he's been hard at for the last years and he has to continue to allow us to perform militarily necessary exercises on the peninsula and then he's got to make sure that he leaves on the table for denuclearization. >> president trump in the meantime seems to rebel in the news, spoke in campaign praising china by calling out former presidents who failed to find a way forward with north korea. >> neither would bush, neither would clinton and they had their shot and all they did was nothing. president xi of china has really helped us a lot. china has more for us than they ever have done for any other president or this country and i respect that. >> now, we still don't know where this meeting would take place. nothing has been ruled out but a white house spokesman said it's highly unlikely that the
location would be pyongyang. heather: highly unlikely. tempered optimism. the president's national security team in the meantime making it clear that the white house is not taking kim jong un on his word alone. ron johnson, chairman of the homeland security says the only way president trump can stop threat of north korea is to learn from previous mistakes of the administrations. >> i joined in the letter with five other of my republican senate colleagues encouraging president trump to make sure to taken main the maximum pressure until we find, see complete verifiable and reversible denuclearization within north korea. so what we can't do is do what we did with iran and let out the pressure and watch the behavior go in the wrong direction. you have that history. let's not be snookered again, let's not be charlie brown to north korea's lucy, we called on

size fits all. every state and every community is going address this -- this issue in a different way. >> the trump's administration plan also includes strengthening criminal background checks and empowering states to train personnel. does not include increase purchasing to 21 even though president trump advocated to it. senate minority leader chuck schumer saying this, the white house has taken tinny baby steps designed not to upset the nra when the gun violence epidemic in this country demands a giant steps be taken. florida just passed bill which includes raising the age limit to buy riffle to 21, several parents of parkland shooting victims support the bill. >> we were up in tallahassee and what's historic, we were able to get the left and the right to come together, put away -- put

would this be the momentum to key races. kristin liberal analyst and kathy, thank you both for joining us. >> thanks for having us. heather: history shows that the party in power loses seats during midterm, do you think it will happen around kristin? >> it might. trump is in his element and at his best campaigning so definitely give the gop at least some momentum at this point. the republican party is trump's party. he's the heart and the soul of the party and the people love him, he has 85% approval rating among republicans and keep the right mobilized. which side can get most voters to the polls. what you think, kathy? >> i think it'll be a disaster in pennsylvania for trump. the gop needs to push but the push won't come from trump. i think he will be disappointed. it is trump country as they say, people didn't think the race so close and it's very close to
democrats are excited and the candidate is smart, he's witty, he's saying all the right things so it should have been this close and it is, so if this is a disaster, 2020 -- heather: another thing voters tend to vote with pocketbooks and we can take a look at the economic numbers right now, in jobs 313,000 jobs have been added, the dow is up, the nasdaq is at record highs, on that front that would seem to favor republicans in. >> absolutely. republicans have a lot to brag about but the democrat connor lamb can rally and moderate who distanced himself from extreme leadership of party, he's even called for nancy pelosi to step down f he wins the special election, it won't be a good sign for republicans but also won't be a good sign for nancy pelosi because signals to other democrats that her leadership is
toxic and being associated with her could hurt more than help. heather: indication of what democrats need to do. >> he definitely -- lamb does know the area and know what is resinates and brings in biden and they need that kind of guy and the voters aren't exactly agreeing with trump on the message, look, this is not working for our economy, so i think that's why it's working so well, he's focusing on his area, not the overall trump message. heather: it's not just democrats that maybe have disagreements with the president, president trump and his fans, also senator jeff flake, he's talking about somebody running against president trump in 2020, listen to what he had to say. >> do you think he needs to be challenged? >> yes. >> from somebody that spouses your views? >> yes, i do. >> okay. >> it would be a tough go in the republican primary, the republican party has -- is the
trump party right now, but that's not to say it will stay that way. heather: not that jeff flake party, though, cathy. >> i don't know, i think he's saying that guy is me, i think flake is getting ready to say i'm going to be the challenger, he has nothing to lose. trump, they are not friends and don't get along and don't see eye to eye. i think they are ready for run in 2020. heather: what do you think, kristin, would that be a good idea? >> in 2016 trump stumped out 16 candidates all who media told us had better shot at nomination, he won from little support from own party because the voters supported him, they do to this day and if jeff flake try to run against trump, they will end up defeated and humiliated, to jeff flake i say good luck. go for it. heather: appreciate it. >> thank you, heather. heather: time now 19 minutes after the top of the hour, did he do it? that's the question everyone
wants an answer to this morning. >> i grabbed the knife, do i remember that portion taken a knife from charlie and to be honest, after that i don't remember. heather: simpson's hypothetical murder confession sparking huge reaction online. >> by god's grace has pulled the cover off of that satanic jew. heather: known for hateful racist remarks but one magazine is defending his newfound relationship with democrats. carley shimkus is here with the outrage online.

humbling experience when people urged her to run. known for hateful racist rhetoric. >> and by god's grace has pulled the cover off of the satanic jew. heather: now one magazine is defending his newfound relationship with democrats. carley shimkus with fox news headline 24/7 siriusxm 115 is here with the outrage online. good morning. >> good morning, heather, atlantic coming out with article explaining why women's march leader tamika didn't commend. turned a blind eye to antisemitic comments because the nation's of islam in african
american communities. here is a direct quote from the article. because of the nation of islam's ongoing presence in many working poor and black communities, time and again farrakhan because for good reason and bad choose to deal with him. many on social media calling for all to condemn farrakhan. take a look at the tweet. lewis arrakhan is part america is divided. john on twitter also says, there's no excuse or justification why anyone would have anything to do with louis farrkhan. heather: we will see what happens moving forward. senator elizabeth warren is say nothing to presidential run? carley: she answered questions on past and future fox news
sunday and whether or not she will take a dna test to prove her native american an ces tri. take a listen. >> i am not running for president in 2020. i have an election right now in 2018 here in massachusetts. i know who i am bus of what my mother and my father told me. it's part of who i am and no one will take this away from me. >> why not simply identify as native american, problem solved. if elizabeth warren were to run, trump is a win in 2020. reaction there. heather: joe bide even took granddaughter to movie and what he did outside movie theater has become viral. carley: this picture that we have of him talking to a homeless person outside of a movie theater is going viral there. we have it right there. that's joe biden and that's
homeless man outside movie theater in washington, d.c. bystander snapped the picture and posted to snapchat, character is what you do with no one watching, a hundred likes on facebook. heather: very nice. >> isn't that great? heather: happy monday. carley: happy monday. heather: time now is half past the top of the hour, almost and an eye for an eye, president trump say that is drug dealers should get the death penalty, too harsh or step in right direction to help stop the growing opioid epidemic, the legal panel will debate it coming up. >> build that wall! >> we are building the wall 100%. heather: and forget méxico and taxpayer money, the border wall could actually pay for itself if we cut welfare to illegal immigrants. why our next guest, president of national border patrol council says this is a no-brainer.
heather: welcome back to "fox & friends first", ice on the hunt after sanctuary city of denver let him walk free. denver police releasing ivan on $2,500 bond. sheriff's office said they are issuing internal review as to why officers released him nearly two hours before notifying the feds. he's facing vehicular homicide charges. well, the jury expected to be completed today. the pool of 56 people will be narrowed to 12 juries or by orlando judge, aiding and encouraging her husband omar mateen to carry out 2016 shooting that killed people as well as lying to the fbi.

that china's stance will be addressed soon. president trump is close to firing him. has not spoken to staffers in weeks and claims political appointees are trying to undermine him. kelly urging for him to get back to work fixing the va. president trump continue to go push for biggest campaign promises. >> we are building the wall 100%. 100%. heather: brand new report show that is the wall could pay for itself for eliminating the needs for welfare and funding benefits given to illegal immigrants. here to react brandon, thank you very much for joining us this morning, appreciate it.
>> heather, good morning. heather: i would like to begin with some of the points that you made about certain magnets that actually draw people to droz border illegally to begin with, what are some of those? >> well, if you look at when we arrest people, we interview and ask them why are you coming to the united states, the vast majority of the individual that is we arrest, they tell us that they are coming here for jobs, they they are telling us they are coming for social programs and they know they will be released if they claim asylum and when they talk about the social programs, you are talking about the billions of dollars the federal and state governments spend on health care, on schooling and all of the different costs that illegal aliens cost taxpayers, and so when you look at what a wall will do in allowing us to apprehend the vast majority of those individuals that are coming across the border, it will cut down on how much the taxpayer burden will be which
will then go straight into funding the wall. so it's a brilliant, it's a brilliant way to go about it and that's the business strategy that president trump brings to the american people. heather: as we continue to discuss that, let's take a look, the report from the center for immigration studies that shows that this border wall would prevent 200,000 illegal crossings at the border saving 64 billion in expenses like welfare, public education, refundable tax credits along with other benefits an then there are a lot of estimates that some other organizations have as well, right? >> there's a lot of estimate that organizations have come out and said that in we were -- to cut down on the number of illegal aliens that are here in the united states, we would save billions of dollars. heather: and then the president himself is touring the border wall prototypes tomorrow, what is next on that front? can you tell us anything? >> yeah, he's going to go look at the prototype and he's going
to discuss the pros and cons of each individual prototype, from there he will go and choose which prototype is going to be best to go along the border and if you look at this, what i'm pleased from a border patrol agent standpoint, what i'm pleased about if you look at all of the fences that we currently have on the border, none of them went through research and development that the current prototypes have gone through and so those fences have been defeated in one way or another, these current prototypes, the u.s. forces, they tested prototypes and they weren't able to defeat them in the same manners that they were able to defeat the fences and you look at this and you to say we are going about this the right way, we are finally getting a wall in strategic locations that are finally going to be effective. heather: that's a good point. i constantly remember the video that we show, it went viral,
these two people that crossed over the border wall, they were running on the other side, they were caught and ran back and scaled right back up the wall. it was so easy for them to go back up it. >> yeah, as an agent working in arizona, i played this game where people would cross the border illegally, they will run into the united states a couple hundred yards and all they'll do is get my attention, run back to the border and climb the wall again and while i'm chasing them they will run another group right behind me, the area that i vacated, so when we get rid of this -- these games that the smugglers will be able to play was, we will be a lot more effective and that's what the walls in strategic locations will do. heather: spending money on things that actually work is a good thing to do. we appreciate your expertise as always. >> thank you, appreciate your time. heather: have a good day. 20 minutes until the top of the hour and do inmates have the
heather: welcome back, you're watching "fox & friends first", they're sitting in jail but they still get to vote. a cook county, illinois hosting first jail wide voting event. the group is called chicago vote, despite being detained 94% of the prisoners were still eligible to cast their ballots, flowns still don't have voting rights. and police taking aim at mother's day, a company came out with new cards reading happy you
day instead of happy mother's day, british super market quickly pulled the gender neutral mother's day card after backlash online, the so-called sentiments were an attempt to be more transgender inclusive. well, how about flights to mars, elon musk says it is going to happen but there's a catch. >> short flights, short up and down flights probably first time in first time next year. difficult, dangerous, good chance you'll die. heather: all right, there's that. tracee carrasco from sister network fox business with the plan. tracee: yes, good morning, heather, if there's anyone that can do this is elon musk. he talked about short trips to space as early as 2019. he made the comments at q&a but south by southwest conference in usaian, texas going on right
now, so he joked about his previous projects, his ambitious timelines, so he didn't want to spark too much speculation, we will see if he get this is done, he said in short-term, mars is really about getting the spaceship built that would provide, prove to other companies and countries that if it can be done providing impetus to go and do it themselves, so he says it's in the works, we will see if it happens. heather: he also said that kanye west and freda inspire him. tracee: role models. heather: krispy kreme. >> yes, they are turning original glazed doughnuts are turns them completely green, the inside too. that will be available this friday and saturday for st. patrick's day, there they are on the screen. they taste the same, right? heather: that's my favorite out of all of them.
>> thanks, heather. heather: 15 minutes until the top of the hour. eye for eye, president trump says that drug dealers should get the death penalty. >> they are killing our kids, they are killing our families, we have to do something. heather: would it help stop the opioid epidemic, we date bait coming up next? please do not call 9-1-1, why police in one city are telling people politely that there's nothing they can do to help. you won't see these folks at the post office they have businesses to run they have passions to pursue how do they avoid trips to the post office? stamps.com mail letters ship packages all the amazing services of the post office right on your computer get a 4 week trial plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale go to stamps.com/tv and never go to the post office again

toughness, you kill one person you get the death penalty, you kill 5,000 people with drugs because you're smuggling them in and making a lot of money and people are dying and they don't even put you in jail, they don't do anything. i don't think we should play games. heather: so would this actually deter drug dealers and clean up our streets, here now to debate criminals defense attorney david bruno and randy, thank you both for joining us this morning. >> good morning. heather: very important topic here and just as we begin, let's take a look at some of the numbers for people at home, in 2016 the total deaths relating from drug overdoes deaths, 63,000, overdoes deaths involving opioids, 42,000, the number quadrupled since 1999 and leading driver of drug overdoes deaths nationally. it's a serious problem. need to do something about it. randy, given the death penalty to drug dealers is that the answer? >> look, look at this way, we
talk about deterrence, one of the most frequent problems that i run into a sentence is when a judge looks at me and says, i get it, your client know that what he did or she did was serious, they understand punishment and will never do this again but we start talking about general deterrence, what about the next randy who did this, how do we stop it? and seems to me that perhaps the ultimate penalty, the ultimate deterrence is the only answer to getting our arms around what is happening in this country with drugs. heather: we are talk about, though, just to differentiate, not marijuana dealer, marijuana is legal in several states, maybe someone who has heroin which happens continuously now and a kid uses that and die. >> well, i disagree in the proposition that there should be death penalty for drug dealers,
it's unjust. our federal code has very serious consequences there are. there, in fact, is death penalty for certain ongoing criminal enterprises with exorbitant amount of drugs and quantity. just giving it to everybody is unreasonable, so many cases that are different and prosecutors have a wide discussion on how to handle the cases depending on who the defendant is and the facts of the case, that's important to leave it to discretion of the prosecutor. heather: so you're saying maybe different circumstances for different situations. >> sure. heather: perhaps a drug dealer, randy, as we were discussing, somebody dies as a result of that? >> you run into the slippery slope argument and becomes, okay, so where is the dividing line and from a deterrence, again, it's all about deterrence, it's all about letting someone know, perhaps even at a young age that if you do this it's not going to get you the mercedes and the rolex and the house and all of the fun
stuff, it's going to get a needle in your arm and it's that message that needs to be sent that perhaps maybe the only way not to make it so cool to be a drug dealer anymore. >> there's a distinction here as well because there are federal laws and then there's state laws and most of these distribution cases are being prosecuted at the state level and by state by state there are different laws and sentencing codes for each of them and even by county, so there are desperate results as a result of this process. unfortunately you can't just paint it with a broad brush and get the results you want. heather: you used the term distribution case, would this move from distribution case to something else when you're talking about murder and homicide? >> well, drug dealing, if we want to talk about drug dealing in codes and statutes it refers
to drug distribution, the context in which he is talking about is strictly distribution cases, there could be cases for acts of terrorism, murder that -- there's already the death penalty on many of those cases as we have seen in the boston bombing case. >> go ask someone in singapore, malaysia, indonesia where you're automatically getting it. heather: some are saying that the president got the idea from some of those countries, specifically from the president of china. >> and i believe the president of philippines also made it very well known, hey, i'm out there, i'm here, and if you deal drugs, you're going to die, so ask the drug dealers, not the drug dealers, the next person who is thinking about, you know what, maybe this isn't a bad way to earn a living, they are probably not a smart career move. heather: looking to see what we can do to bring numbers down. >> it's not all about deterrence though, you to take a look at
the facts of the case and the defendant themselves. heather: thank you both for joining us, appreciate it. have a good day. hash tag did oj confess after chilling amazing interview, did you see this, watch. >> the one thing that hurts me, you know, besides being considered by some a murderer is just being a batter. heather: oj's simpson last hypothetical confession murder that everyone is talking about. wait till you hear this.
heather: o.j. simpson elaborately detailing the murders of wife and her friend in interview but insists that his accounts are hypothetical. during the two-hour special the lost confession airing 12 years after being recorded. >> i grabbed the knife, i do remember that portion, taking a knife from charlie and to be honest, after that i don't remember, i hate to say it. [laughter] heather: simpson was acquitted of the murderers back in 1995, one of the most controversial hear negotiation u.s. history but convicted 13 years later of armed robbery and kidnapping landed him in nevada prison, he was in release parole after nine years, it was bizarre interview
to say the very least. meghan markle kidnapped and held hostage as she prepares to become member of the royal family, the actress spending two days in country side with britain special forces training her for terrorist attack, it even included gun live fire, the fiancee is under protection until may 19th wedding, that's part of prep raying. ncaa tournament is set and march madness is officially upon us, the teams with villanova, kansas city leading the way, others like notre dame were left out in the cold, some people upset about that, the selection broadcast, it was played with technical difficulties, but no matter how bad you think the bracket process is, don't call 9-1-1, actually happened, police
in kansas sending out a twitter saying they can't do anything about it. it actually happened. [laughter] heather: that wraps up the hour, go tar hills. have a great week, bye. >> landed like it was suppose today land and completely under water. >> the temperature is below 40. >> it is monday march 12th, fox news alert. chopper crash disaster breaking overnight, five people killed, look at that after a helicopter goes down in new york city river, the investigation happening right now into exactly what went wrong. jillian: ramping up the pressure , the meeting happening today to discuss the rising tensions. rob: if you think air travel is already a nightmare, wait for the new scheme by the big
