rectify this mistake. >> president trump, we have a new sheriff in town. zero tolerance and zero releases and 100 percent prosecution. ♪ ♪ ♪ i'm on top of the world steve: hi, everybody, live from new york city. it is the 12th day of april, 2018. this is "fox & friends" from the mezzanine level. hi, we're up here. ainsley: good morning to you. it's thursday. you can smell the weekend. > steve: you know what you can smell. today is national grilled cheese day. janice dean on our plaza is going to attempt to create a 35-pound grilled cheese sandwich. ainsley: she likes hers with mayonnaise and bacon. steve: that sounds terrific.
3:02 am
brian: got on the internet to find any knew thrill plan with grilled cheese and bacon on it. ainsley: it doesn't exist. steve: bacon is okay for you. i'm reading new book. number one book in the world now called food what to heat by dr. highman out of the cleveland clinic. he says bacon every day is not going to hurt you. ainsley: like wine and coffee, it's good for you one week. the next week we do a news story that says it's not good for you. steve: turns out they will make a 50 or 60-pound grilled cheese sand witch. stay tuned. what a show. brian: by all accounts more massive and substantial than the one a year ago when 59 tomahawks ransd down on syria after saturday's gas attack killed 40 and sent hundreds to the hospital. president tweeted russia vows to shoot down all missiles. they will be nice new and smart. i was shocked to find out
3:03 am
defense secretary mattis at least tells us he was sure syria did it which was astounding because other people said they were sure. and we had eyes on them the entire time. ainsley: reporter said do we have enough evidence to know this was syria? listen to his response. [inaudible] >> we are still assessing the intelligence ourselves and our allies. we are still working on this. >> is the u.s. military now strike if ordered? >> we stand ready to provide military options if they're appropriate as the president determined. but thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. >> you're welcome. >> ainsley: he wanted to end it there. steve: he says they are ready, trying to figure out who did it. there are these stories out there. you know, have you got to figure some of it could be russian propaganda: "newsweek," no print
3:04 am
addition anymore. apparently this group called the white helmets which used to be the syrian defense organization. there are stories that they staged bodies to make it look like there was a gas attack. meanwhile, have you got russian media saying we sent investigators in. our military did, and they could not find any traces of any toxins or gas on any of the bodies. brian: russians are so reputable and they have always told the truth in the past and those child actors with those gas masks probably ought to be up for oscars. ainsley: 2 years old and 3 years old, actors in diapers. our president was tweeting missiles are on the way, get ready, russia. russia is apparently tracking our ships. because we deployed at least one ship. and there was one already there in the region. russia is tracking our ships. they were seen removing 11 of their ships off of the coast of syria. i don't know if that was to get their ships out of the way or to get in place so they can shoot down our missiles if we shoot them.
3:05 am
steve: they know something is coming because the president yesterday eliminated the element of surprise. nonetheless, there are these stories from russia, hey, syria didn't do it. just know that because if you shoot something at us, united states, we're going to shoot your stuff down. sarah sanders says all the options are still on that table. >> the president has a number of options at his disposal and all of those options real estate main on the table and we are continuing to look at each one of them. the president holds syria and russia responsible for this chemical weapons attack. russia has proven themselves to be responsible in part for this. they guaranteed that the use of chemical weapons by syria would not happen again. they failed at that they have also helped enable syria by vetoing 6 different u.n. resolutions that have helped protect assad. so, they are certainly hold some responsibility in this. and certainly have proven themselves to be bad actors in this process.
3:06 am
brian: when president obama said -- got off his prepared remarks and said if you cross the red line using chemical or biological weapons, that's a red line for us. didn't act. had a plan, took a walk around the white house. changed his mind. went golfing. the devastation on our foreign policy and still recovering from. this president at this moment has credibility. if he takes a backwards step now and doesn't follow through, i don't care how long it takes, we will almost never recover as long as he is in office. if you talk to the chairman of foreig foreign relations bob corker, general jack keane and lindsey graham. they have the evidence. they know it's there. there is a sense that the russians want this fight and that we are backing off because we wonder if this is a somewhat of a plot to hook us in. i say we're a super power. we have a responsibility to act like that and when we say we're going to do something, everything is on
3:07 am
the line if we don't do it. the president will never recover from this internationally. steve: but, can you imagine if they didn't actually do it? so it does. brian: why would he tweet that out. steve: i'm getting information from the state department we have intel that shows that syria was somehow involved. nonetheless, they are making sure that it's going to happen. right now the general consensus that the pentagon is going to be one strike. there are going to be a number of targets. they had thought about a three or four day deal. that's out. looks like the united kingdom, france, and the united states will be all together on the attack when it happens. brian: the u.k. has not commit. theresa may is wavering. ainsley: calling a cabinet meeting today. brian: she does not have the support if you listened to nigel farage last night. one in four, concerned about popularity. support something like this. single strike means no strike. 59 tomahawks last year got eight more attacks this year. what is another single
quote
3:08 am
strike going to do? steve: that's what the pentagon is thinking right now just reporting the facts. the attorney general for the united states jeff sessions at the texas border coalition am spring meeting. they had 31 pedestrians of 31 different departments around the table where he was talking and essentially he made it very clear there are changes in the immigration system and they're going to start talking no tolerance, zero releases, and 100 percent prosecution. why? new leadership. listen. >> with president trump, we have a new era of support for law enforcement, like we haven't seen in many years. you might even say we've got a new sheriff in town. we are working to take criminals off the streets by restoring the rule of law and really protecting and fixing our immigration system. so we're going to step up our efforts to achieve zero tolerance and zero releases
3:09 am
and 100 percent prosecution. steve: that's what people want to hear. ainsley: he says to all of them, i know you have challenges and i'm here to try to fix these. i know you have limited resources. you have manpower needs. you need more beds and equipment needed and you are facing a lot of violence. he says i'm here to support you. california is -- they have responded. we saw new mexico, arizona and texas put more of the guardsmen on the border when the president said he was sending them in. guess what? governor jerry brown of california has said i am now going to comply and i'm sending 400 additional guardsmen down to the border. steve: but, there is a buy but. brian: that's a great move for governor brown to do. this i actually think he had very little choice, especially momentum build against the sanctuary state. he goes on to clarify why he's doing it he said let's be clear on the scope of the mission. this will not be a mission to build a new wall or round up women or children or
3:10 am
detain people seeking escaping violence and seeking a better life. enforce immigration laws. that's a huge but. what he does not understanding there is illegal immigration. there is legal and illegal. there is a way for refugees to get in our country. the way can't be sneaking in, just walking across our border. why would anyone do it the right way if he is encouraging the wrong way? steve: here's the thing. the president made it clear i'm seconding up to 4,000 national guard to help down at the border. jerry brown says i will take 400 and i will put them throughout the state. you know what? that doesn't count. california should not get the money to fund the national guard for those 400 personnel if it's not going to be in some measure regarding border security. ainsley: i wonder if jerry brown is starting to say so many cities now in my state don't want to be a sanctuary state. you had two more yesterday that voted because they are -- they're going to attach themselves to the doj
3:11 am
lawsuit. because they are saying we don't want to be a sanctuary state. maybe he is listening to his constituents saying maybe i got it whole idea is to assist with border security. that's not going to work. brian: president probably had the right to put them there himself and tell the national guard you go report but it didn't come to that 11 minutes after the hour. unless jillian wants to strike she has to read the news right now. jillian: i don't want to strike. will it's going to be 80 degrees tomorrow -- i'm just kidding. the resistance to sanctuary cities growing in california. the city of westminster voting overnight to support a federal lawsuit against the state. the sanctuary city's law cooperating with authorities. joins 8 other orange county cities that started the

bill. deputy attorney general rod rosenstein handing the two page memo over to house intelligence committee chair devin nunes and house oversight committee chair trey gowdy. those documents not yet made public. the justice department giving in after nunes threatened to have rosenstein and fbi director christopher wray impreached. years of soft policy on russia are over. that's what secretary of state nominee mike pompeo is expected to tell the senate during his confirmation hearing today. according to remarks obtained by fox news, pompeo will also emphasize that while challenging diplomatic efforts with moscow must continue. the cia director was picked to be the head of the state department after the president fired rex tillerson last month. two baseball games turn into base brawls with benches clearing and punches thrown. watch. >> and there it is. does not like it. now he is going to head towards the mound. now, this is a ball.
3:13 am
>> yankees and red sox coming to blows when yankee tyler austin is hit with a pitch and charges the mound. punches also thrown at the rockies padres game after a wild pitch. five players were ejected there. ainsley: do they have a history those two? >> they do now. jillian: they don't love each other. ainsley: i know the teams don't but i didn't know if those two individuals had sparred before. brian: no. but just when you slide high into second and you bat and get hit in the mountain you approach the mound like children. ainsley: the loyalty of both teams they all storm the field. thanks, jillian. brian: meanwhile, 13 minutes after the hour. more lawmakers confronting mark zuckerberg about why facebook labeled diamond and silk unsafe. >> diamond and silk have a question for you. and that question is what is unsafe about two black women
3:14 am
supporting president donald j. trump? brian: his response and what diamond and silk are saying now just ahead. steve: new way to see you lens conservatives on campus, call them hate groups. ♪
3:15 am
3:16 am
3:17 am
♪ steve: we've got a fox news alert because the president just tweeted about our next subject. never said when an attack on syria would take place, could be very soon or not so soon at all. in any event, the united states, under my
3:18 am
administration, has done a great job of riding the region of isis. where is our thank you, america? joining us now is the policy advisor for the syrian campaign keenan ramani. good morning. >> good morning. thank you. receive steve you like that the president of the united states is talking tough and it looks fast there will be a strike on syria. >> i absolutely support president trump in his promise for a military action. in response to this heinous war crime. women and children were gassed to death while they were being starved by the assad regime. president obama completely blew it in 2001 which assad killed 4,000 people, 400 children. president obama did nothing. signing a deal with russia. allowing a iran deal allowing it to go through. collusion is working with russia to allow syrians to
3:19 am
be gassed to death. we need to stand up for syrians not only facing chemical weapons, barrel bombs. being burned to death and their bodies being burned in cream torians. this is holocaust remembrance day and 14r50u8 imperative when we say never again we really mean it. president trump, we urge you to please follow through on your commitment to hold assad and russia accountable for these heinous war crimes. steve: um-huh. of course, he is making it clear with this morning's tweet, keenan, that that is his intention. we were also talking about how there are all these internet conspiracies and russians are saying we didn't do it, and there is probably an activist group that staged it, what do you think about that stuff? >> this is all classic russian propaganda, we should not listen to any of this. we have the photos. we have the videos. cylinders dropped on top of civilians. i know that the president is
3:20 am
reviewing all of this evidence. the evidence is very clear. what the president needs to do is to make sure that russia doesn't get away with this. that assad doesn't get away with this. there needs to be a response. there needs to be the complete grounding of the regime's air force immediately as quickly as possible. and the regime is trying to move all of its assets out of the way so that the president can hit those. and russia is trying to make threats against the united states of america. we should not be thwarted by this bluster from the regime and from russia. we need to make sure that these warplanes that are dropping chemical weapons and barrel bombs on civilians are stopped from being able to do so. i trust president trump can do that. steve: all right. and i think he thinks, given the nature of that tweet, that he can do it as well. thank you very much for joining us live from our nation's capital. >> thank you. steve: meanwhile, on this thursday, the heads of the consumer financial protection bureau under fire, mick mulvaney's crime,

3:25 am
thankfully, no one was hurt. brian? brian: house speak paul ryan revealing he won't be re-election. political bombshell is raising questions about what this means for republicans in the midterm elections. help or hurt? here to debate it democratic strategist calloway and matt schlapp who has a very famous wife. matt, real quick, you are say the speaker of the house never liked politics, was uncomfortable with the president. even though they had dinner last night. so this makes sense to you? >> yeah, it does. look, i think there has been a lot of political change in politics. and the speaker has been uncomfortable with aspects of it. the biggest part that he has been uncomfortable with in being the speaker of the house look, he is just not a guy who loves politics. he doesn't like bathe in politics. he loves public policy. he loves passing that tax bill. that's the valid victory of his time as speaker. is he being honest with the american people look, i have done the job i wanted to do and i want to move on.
3:26 am
good for him for coming to that conclusion. brian: when john mccain went thumbs down, that killed his ideal which would have been entitlement reform. he wanted to start there. your thoughts? >> well, paul ryan is a budget guy and he is a tax guy so ultimately agree with matt that the victory of his career even more so than entitlement reform has always been reforming our tax code for the first time since 1986. i don't agree with everything that happened in the tax bill but it is amajor accomplishment for his leadership. matt is right when he said paul didn't want to be speaker. what else he didn't want to be was minority leader. they see that blue wave is come and he wants no part of that i commend him however for doing the right thing and stepping aside now as opposed to running for another term and stepping aside once the minority was confirmed. >> let me counter that the person who might be the most disappointed person in washington is nancy pelosi. you know, people talk about donald trump's numbers, which are improving and much better than get reported. the politician with the
3:27 am
worse numbers in the last 20 years of politics is nancy pelosi. do you know what the focus is on? 100 percent around this country as we get closer and closer to november is the nancy pelosi agenda which is not going to help anybody in this country. brian: two things we hear, don. if you bring up nancy pelosi, republicans like that. if you bring up impeachment believe it or not republicans like that. the american people don't want to hear that. do you agree? >> this is a midterm election. midterm elections are not about the house minority leader. the midterm elections are about a referendum particularly on the president. that is what history tells us. we can always say that nancy pelosi is unpopular. whether or not that's true, i'm sure republicans will run on it this will be a referendum on donald trump. nancy pelosi doesn't really care whether or not paul ryan is speaker because this is a referendum on trump and, again, not only 39 republicans, which is a record in republican defections but who else matt schlapp his job to rally conservative troops. the blue wave is coming with
3:28 am
or without nancy pelosi. brian: you seem to be right when it comes to momentum. the generic poll had the democrat's lead shrink to 3 yesterday. i was surprised by that comaft, the big picture, what is the additional fallout? some say after this they pull the plug, a lot of other republicans retire. do you foresee that? >> first of all, it's okay for politicians who don't feel the energy to run again to quit. i would rather them quit than run a half hearted race there are a lot of republicans who are resigning. i'm okay with bringing in fresh legs into the political scene and the third point is that if this is a referendum on donald trump, it will be a referendum on the trump economy. why do you see those generic ballot numbers, brian, getting better for the republicans? it's because people feel secure. they feel more economic security and feel like president trump is projecting strength overseas, whether it's syria or whether it's china or whether it's russia. that's what this race will come down to. brian: i have news for you. kevin mccarthy coming up.
3:29 am
we will ask him. most likely good friends with the president and most likely be the next speaker. i believe the president cannot say i projected strength if he now backs out of showing strength in syria after what he said yesterday. >> i would agree with that i don't necessarily see his tweet as a backing out. his tweet is a very real response to the criticism that he was telegraphing military activity and he is still saying i'm going to do something, i'm just not telling you when it is. i support the president's action on syria. i think we should have taken bashar al assad out long ago. i don't like tweeting about it. it's unpresidential but i'm sure assad needs to go. brian: final thoughts, matt? >> in so many ways barack obama did not keep us safe. and i think this election is gonna come down to just one word. do you feel secure as an american? do you feel like have you greater economic security and do you feel like you are safer because of the trump policies? that's why i think the republicans will be in good shape and pick up senate seats for sure. brian: if we could all get along this way this country

a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. ♪ ♪ ainsley: the fbi caving to pressure when facebook -- the consequences of not turning in those redacted documents. >> they can either cough

telephone and resolve this. steve: right. >> the last time we had a dispute like this it was over fast and furious and a republican house of representatives held a democratic attorney general acre eric holder in contempt. what happened as a result of contempt? nothing. they didn't even get the documents. because they don't pursue these things. congress, not just devin nunes' committee, the house of representatives should subpoena a person, chris wray, jeff sessions, whoever has control over the whole thing. and if that person doesn't produce the documents, that person should be held in contempt. steve: it seems, judge, as if the attorney general of the united states is not acting in the president's best interest or in the best interest of congress' opportunity and right to see what's in all these documents. >> there must be some conflict by which i mean he must see something in there that he believes would be harmful for the public to see. now, there are statutes that regulate. you had john lausch on yesterday.

anything, it's going to be almost impossible to recover our credibility. steve: i like the fact that the president isn't just saying it happened yesterday i'm going to start bombing things. they are making sure things are as they do appear. you know, there are the stories out there, russia saying, look, syria didn't do it. there is that activist grope called white helmet. they staged it to make syria look bad so the united states would do it. that's why russia has partnered up with syria, as they have for years and said look, if the united states attacks them, we will blow every one of their missiles out of the sky. brian: it's about time russia understands hot super power is. they act like 22,000-ton gorilla, they are not. 30 planes there. they enabled this thug to kill over 200,000 people and keep him in people along with iran. they did this. they also did eight prior ones. there is enough evidence, the president is already on the record, he has got to do something. ainsley: we have sent ships that way.

4:05 am
landslide on the way just hold your horses. let's see how this turns out. economic growth and jobs and wages are very popular issues. and the people who are saying it's going to be a republican catastrophe in november are people who have opposed our tax cuts, do not believe we can have better economic growth or help jobs and productivity. let's see how that works out. brian: i think it's important to know at the very least, you know that the reason why the speaker was put in that place, he never wanted it he is not necessarily somebody to rangle people like other strong speakers in the past. what he is, he has got a lot of credibility. he has looked up to. people understanding how bright he is. he also was savvy enough to know he is not going to get rolled by nancy pelosi. loot of people feel that's the greatest quality of the next pirik is to be somebody who is politically savvy, likes the infighting more than the speaker did. ainsley: a timing issue. if i don't get out now, then i am going to have to wait until after the mid terms.
4:06 am
far enough away from the mid terms he can lead. steve: he is going to lead through the midterm election, stay in his office. brian: would he be a minority leader? no. even if i did keep this job, it's hard enough wrapping gling with the 23 or 24-person majority. the freedom caucus is 25 members. a lot of times they go against him because the frawx disagrees with anybody with the moderates. he goes how could i possibly get anything done if i have even a smaller margin. steve: right. you know what? he is going out on high note. they just got the tax cut bill which he loves. then again, there is the omnibus which was way too much spending. kevin mccarthy, house majority leader right now, he has been suggested along with steve scalise as perhaps a replacement for the speaker. is he going to be joining brian in a half an hour. brian to your point about the house freedom caucus, mr. mccarthy who rumors have been floating around for months that speaker ryan was going to be leaving. mccarty has been courting

the house freedom caucus and what he has talked about essentially is pushing back on the billions from the omnibus. he has also been talking to the house freedom caucus about maybe an investigation into hillary clinton and also the balanced budget amendment even though it can't get through the entire congress, at least the house freedom caucus would like to seat house on the record. mr. mccarthy is courting the house freedom caucus, which, if you are going to be speaker, you have got to do that. brian: big story on sunday is going to be the 2020 special as james comey sits down for the first time. bret baier third with george stephanopoulos. at which time the reports are suspects to riveting they have trouble jamming into one hour. good thing to say. steve: good tease. brian: it's a good tease. evidently, james comey makes the unfortunate phrase and actually equates this president to a mob boss. >> how strange is it for you to sit here and compare the president to a mob boss? things you know but haven't

4:52 am
only come home on the weekends so i would like to spend a little time before they grow up. that's a good reason. >> yeah, it is. a quick scan of paul ryan instagram account shows how much he enjoys spending time with his kids, the travel and fundraising. the schedule he has got. 20 states so far this year. the schedule has got to be just daunting particularly for someone in a decade isn't going to have his kids around anymore. they will be off in college. for some reason for someone want to leave one reason no one can argue with. steve: speaker of the house, you are in charge the house on the republican side. and you are the leader. but, they don't realize that if you are a republican, you do look for the speaker of the house, if you are in congress, to come out to your district and raise money and that's why a lot of the weekends when he would like to be at home in janesville with his kidd kids he is somewhere else trying to make money for somebody else. >> it's, like i said, the
4:53 am
schedule last week i do a lot of work in texas. he had been down there all over the state. having said that he is a prolific fundraiser. money from his campaign over to the rncc. he is going to run, keep doing that schedule, keep raising money. both the nrcc and rnc are on track. they have already through the end of february raised 50%. more than 50% for what they did for all of 2016. it's going to be well funded. i don't see that stopping. is he still committed to republican and conservative ideals and making sure he does everything that republicans keep the house. steve: we have a big screen over here that shows team ryan fundraising in the first quarter of 2018. look at that they have raised 11.1 million already. over the last election cycle over 54 million. here's the thing, chris. it does look to some donors as if paul ryan is getting out because he knows the democrats are going to be
4:54 am
taking over. is he going to lose the gavel so he is going to get out while the getting is good. >> i think democrats will certainly do everything they can to make that argument. as he gets out, he became the 25th member-to-announce retirement. have you 13 more moving on and trying to run for higher offices. 38 seats right now amongst republicans are open. steve, the interesting thing about that only 22 are ranked as toss-up, which is less than the democrats need to take over the house. ryan probably moves into that category. the democrat there has already raised $2.5 million. and now that ryan is out he has to find a strong republican to hold that seat. what it does is free's him up to go out and make sure the republicans have strong candidacies and helping them campaign. he knows in january he will have the time to spend his family and can he work with donors and republican party to make sure the republican does hold the house and pick um seats in the senate. steve: one of the problems for mr. ryan it was hard to get all the republicans on the same page and that's why
4:55 am
they didn't get a lot of stuff done. so, if the republicans still have the majority, come january, who would the next speaker be in a lot of people talking about steve scalise on the program for kevin mccarthy. right now, who is the front runner? >> you know, it's tough to say because this only started yesterday. steve scalise has said he won't run against kevin mccarthy. he started to run last time when paul ryan did and pulled back and decided not to. so no one has really announced yet there are a lot of calls being made. i had a couple calls with clients of ours. talking about what's going to happen. between the two. i think it's likely that scalise emerges because he is seen as the more conservative pick and he would be a face of the party. i think there is probably a couple other candidates in this that we haven't even heard of yet. steve: sure. >> you could see republicans coming together same thing with paul ryan. hey, this is the person who we can all get behind. steve: sounds like right now
4:56 am
they are doing the deal or they're talking to kevin mccarthy because he is saying all the things they want to hear. so stay tuned. we will find out what's going to happen. chris wilson, former ted cruz campaign polster, thank you very much for joining us live. meanwhile, if somebody wants welfare, should they have to get a drug? what about a drug test in the president pushing stricter guidelines. we'll have a debate on that next hour. here's the story of green mountain coffee roasters sumatra reserve. let's go to sumatra. the coffee here is amazing. because the volcanic soil is amazing. so we give farmers like win more plants. to grow more delicious coffee. which helps provide for win's family. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters. let's see. if this pack, and this pack, have the same number of bladder leak pads, i bet you think the bigger one is better, right? actually, it's bulkier.
