3:02 am
going to go. brian: that's what i think of when i think of stormy. steve: storm field the weather man in new york city. ainsley: he is the meteorologist and his name is storm. i was working other local news. i think it was in charleston, there was a guy who was our sports guy, radio guy, his name was adam but he spelled it atom. brian: if you are out there tell us why. ainsley: send us crazy names. steve: friends@foxnews.com, twitter or facebook. meanwhile the president of the united states is down at his mar-a-lago resort along with the prime minister of japan shinzo abe and during a joint availability yesterday in mar-a-lago's fancy ballroom, the president was talking a little bit about it sounds like there's going to be a summit with kim jong un at the end of may or early june and while mr. kim has been
3:03 am
described during his meeting with mike pompeo as personal and well-prepared. the president said yesterday if the meeting goes south and not fruitful. he is going to go to the exit. >> i will be meeting with kim jong un in the coming weeks to discuss the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. hopelhopefully that meeting will be a great success and we are looking forward to it. it would be a tremendous thing for north korea and a tremendous thing for the world. we have never been in a position like this with that regime. if i think that it's a meetings that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go. if the meeting, when i'm there, is not fruitful, i will respectfully leave the meeting. brian: i think it's pretty az r. amazing the cia director is going to be the secretary of state if congress doesn't embarrass
3:04 am
itself goes over there and has a one-on-one and walked out. if he felt as though he wasn't serious, he wasn't prepared, he wasn't ready or wasn't sincere, he would have come back and said mr. president don't embarrass yourself and the country. we're not doing it he saw enough there he can keep a secret. pretty clear can he keep a secret. he went through confirmation hearings even though he spent his easter in north korea, nobody knew it. steve: nobody asked. ainsley: you asked many times if the president is going to kim jong un free these americans that are there. he is going to be putting pressure on to denuke rise. steve: denuke. ainsley: yeah. take out the nuclear weapons. ask these three americans held in north korea. shinzo abe said japanese citizens have also been abducted he is going to put pressure to also release those individuals. north korea says they abducted 13 japanese stipulates. japan saying more than that. 17. they abducted them to train
3:05 am
their agents to speak japanese. brian: who does that? steve: back in the 180s. he is actually negotiating to release them. but there is a question about hey, so mike pompeo goes over there and he doesn't get anything, he doesn't get them in return as a good faith effort. and the president answered, look, i'm working on it mike huckabee says, look, the fact that this president is bringing north korea closer, this is historic. >> he's a guy when he plays cards never really gives his cards away. what he is saying okay, pompeo came. we had a great visit. things went well. the set-up is there. he wants to make it clear he has some expectations. will his expectations be met? probably not. not completely. but, it's historic in that he is bringing north korea closer to behaving like a real country than anyone in our lifetime has been able to do. and that really is progress.
3:06 am
brian: it is. it's just amazing, too. most people who aren't just blind with partisanship are saluting the president's tactics to this point that brought us to this point while the president is smart enough to say i'm not going to raise expectations. we can't even pick a spot right now to have a june summit. also in the back drop, they are also talking about north korea, south korea armistice. ending the korean war. steve: that would be great. brian: the conflict ended in '53 but we never signed anything. south and north korea could be making historic announcement in may. ainsley: president is going to head down to the key west antismuggling center california's governor jerry brown will deploy those 400 national guard troops, but there are conditions. there are strict terms. steve: that's right. keep in mind the president ordered up to 4,000 national guards troop on our southern border to help with immigration. jerry brown made it very clear, i will put them all over the state but they are not going to help with immigration.
3:07 am
partly of the order reads. this california ng service members shall not engage in any direct law enforcement role nor enforce immigration laws, arrest people for immigration law violations, guard people taken into custody for alleged immigration violations or support immigration law enforcement activities u it is so specific, it gets down to these people will not be able to gas up the trucks if the trucks are going to be used for immigration. it is that. ainsley: or build the wall. brian: the liberal governor does not have the voice of the people in his head when he is making these rules. they did a recent survey this institute said what do you think about illegals bolstering the border 50% is for what the president is doing. this governor is not. he is beginning to lose counties and towns and cities. he has lost the majority of the california people. ainsley: it's baffling that guy right there is defending illegal criminals and not allowing ice to work with them and arrest them if they are criminals and they are here illegally. why should all of this
3:08 am
matter to you? well, the numbers are really staggering. the department of homeland security has released the gang members that were shielded from deportation. steve: gang members. ainsley: sanctuary policies. keep in mind gang members, ms-13, brian went out to long island to do that story with those families there with the president when he gave the state of the union address. this gang is known for gruesome crimes. the parents of those girls could not even recognize their daughters' bodies. brian: look state by state. california, congratulations you lead on this one, too. 8. steve: two thirds of the total number were released from california. i know the numbers were a little small to see. maryland 13, texas, which is one of the, you know, crack down els statescrackdowniest st. she does not cooperate with ice. 11 in texas, 11 in washington and 11 maryland. brian: a lot of them came
3:09 am
during that so-called unaccompanied minor surge at the border where everyone open hearts and arms you got to come. a lot of them were pretending and a lot of them came in here and started with gang activity. steve: so, when they were released rather than going directly to the federal government. they opened the door and vanished in the town. ainsley: what's happening in syria to these families and what's happening in north korea. we want to keep our country safe. it's not that we don't have a heart. steve: sounds like it's easy to do but those are the numbers. brian: ainsley opened up your front door and now you have to adam housley. ainsley: the city of houston is celebrating the life of former first lady barbara bush lighting it up in her favorite color ahead of tomorrow's memorial. brian: other first ladies attend her funeral saturday.
3:10 am
steve: adam housley is outside the home in houston. >> we expect to get that official guest list this morning. there are some names coming out. you mentioned melania trump will be here. a lot of others. heard some rumors about people that know the bushes very well, of course, planning to attend. the plan is in place for that matter here in houston. right now the former first lady is at the funeral home behind me. tomorrow she will lie in repose at the church here. and there are all sorts of mommies taking place around the area tonight. there will actually be a candlelight vigil as well. you showed city hall and pictures there of the flowers at city hall gathering and dropped off by some people that loved the first lady in this part of the country and that are the path the country as well. a park named after her is going to be redone. flowers arriving there as well. great comments from not only those that knew her but those very close to her like her husband bush 41. put out a statement yesterday that gives you
3:11 am
great insight into the incredible woman she was and how close the family is. his statement i always knew barbara was the most beloved woman in the world. i used to tease her that i had a complex about that fact. the truth is the outpouring of love and friendship being directed at the enforcer, as she was known in the family is lifting us all up. she have faith she is heaven, and we know life would go on as she would have it so cross the bushes off your worry list. we are also hearing more about bush 43 about his mother. take a listen to. this the day before she died i said, mom, i just want you to know you have been a fabulous mother and i love you dearly. she said i want you to know that you're my favorite son on the phone. [laughter] >> mrs. bush will lie in repose saint martins episcopal church down the street. we drove by there this morning, a stunning location beautifully lit up and
3:12 am
tomorrow that's where she will lie in repose for those who want to pay their respect. steve: adam, thank you very much. live report from houston. ainsley: she lived a long and rich life. steve: she did a beautiful family. brian: do you know jillian? jillian: want to know if the president golfed yesterday. brian: i don't know we'll find out later. jillian: just one day after that nightmare explosion on a southwest plane, the engine of a delta jet catches fire. check it out. thick black smoke coming out of the plane forcing the plane from atlanta to london to turn back. >> issue with the engine on the residents. apparently there is some smoke coming from it. jillian: firefighters spraying the plane down with foam on the tarmac. thankfully nobody was hurt and passengers were put on the another flight. the cause of the fire is now under investigation. police are looking into the suspicious death of h.r. mcmaster senior. the father of former national security advisor h.r. mcmaster.
3:13 am
the 84-year-old died last week after falling in retirement community in pennsylvania. investigators belief mcmaster may not have received proper care after that fall. now, there are also reports, records surrounding mcmaster's death were falsified. that's a look at your headlines. steve: got to look into that jillian, thank you. meanwhile, ignore all the bad news about illegals. just ask california governor jerry brown. >> i think fox news exploits this issue. we have criminals that do horrible things all the time. steve: so fox news is exploiting the issue? apparently the governor has not spoken to jamiel shaw. his son murdered by illegal immigrant in california. he will join us live with a message for the governor shortly. ainsley: eric holder just dropped another hint about his intentions for 2020. ♪ ♪ [man] woah. ugh, i don't have my wallet, so -

3:19 am
we say they have to denuke rise or we get up and leave. do we put that up on the table early? is this incremental thing? >> the clinton administration and bush administration tried to buy off north korea for nuclear arsenal and nuclear aspirations, both times desperate to get to the deal. diplomats in search of nobel prizes. the complete difference this time around is donald trump who knows how to negotiate is willing to walk away from a bad deal. that's something every american who buys a used car knows and something our diplomatics don't know. that's what's different this time. brian: we know japan has their objective, south korea has their worries and north koreas that their objective. not wanting to see that regime collapse. do you think walk out in june beginning of a beginning of a series of talks? >> very hard to tell at this point. i think you could have a
3:20 am
framework. really it depends on what north korea is really up to again. if they really are sincere about coming in from the cold and i think they are desperate for funds. we really have done a good job of cutting that off. but, in the past, it's basically a cycle where they say they are going to disarm, they get a bunch of goodies from the u.s. and 58 lies and then never deliver the goods. brian: 20 seconds, they have three of our guys there we have got to get them out. we don't need them. that would be an easy thing to do. will they? >> yes. that's likely it would help if we have a confirmed chief diplomat if the senate would do its job and confirm mike pompeo so he could start negotiating for these people. brian: unbelievable that might not happen. have to go to the floor and that wouldn't be a layup by a guy who just got confirmed cia director who just got back from north korea. christian whiten thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: ignore all illegals just ask california governor jerry brown. >> i think fox news exploits this issue. we have criminals who do

trade, but they are also talking about north korean talks. why? because it effects so much what japan. it's their security. and their main focus medium range missiles and the abduction of japanese citizens. they do not know what happened. they want to get some answers. and meanwhile, i think they made their point yesterday. the most fascinating thing to emerge over the last two days has been the visit by cia director mike pompeo to meet face to face with kim jong un to see if, in fact, this was worth the president's time. the word is it's worth the president's time. ainsley: pompeo went and he sat down with them and laid the groundwork which was amazing, phenomenal. i don't think this has ever happened. it's incredible if our president does get this meeting with kim jong un and then kim jong un denuclearizes his country. that would be phenomenal. the president said this about that meeting. >> i will be meeting with kim jong un in the coming weeks to discuss the denuclearization of the korean peninsula.
4:03 am
hopefully that meeting will be a great success and we're looking forward to it. it would be a tremendous thing for north korea and a tremendous thing for the world. we have never been in a position like this with that regime. if i think that it's a meeting that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go. if the meeting when i'm there is not fruitful, i will respectfully leave the meeting. steve: ascoreding to mr. pompeo, he told the president, apparently, that he has set the table that mr. kim jong un is ready to go ahead and wheel and deal. to the extent, don't know, the president has made it very clear that if it's not as planned he is going to hit exit. here's the thing. mike pompeo currently is the cia director. he is waiting to be confirmed confirmed as the secretary of state. we have reminded folks rand paul has made it very clear is he litigating the iraq
4:04 am
war, he does not like the idea of mike pompeo as secretary of state. so he is a no. however. brian: for now. steve: the president yesterday made it very clear he said, you know, rand paul, he never -- he has never let me down. he said he has talked to mr. paul and it sounds like when it's time to vote, rand paul probably, if you read between the lines, will be a yes. which means then it would probably still move to the main senate floor, but the question is can they get any democrats to vote with all the republicans? brian: well, when it comes to senator rand paul, he said i'm going to have the meeting at the president's request one-on-one. what i want mike pompeo to do is basically devow all his beliefs that there needs to be a presence in the middle east. that afghanistan is not done, that the iraq -- he wants him to say iraq war was a mistake and that we shouldn't have a presence there. by the way mike pompeo doesn't believe that. that's the problem. rand paul, he is true to his
4:05 am
school, perhaps, but he is an outlier. he could single-handedly destroy mike pompeo in conference, make it go to the main floor where, amongst the republicans who are on the fence, senator john mccain just out of surgery won't be there, and senator jeff flake says beats me, i'm not sure how i will vote. ainsley: senator cory gardner a republican from colorado, he said there is really no good reason to vote against mike pompeo. listen to this. >> i think the senate historian said going back to at least 1925 this has never happened for a secretary of state nominee. it's happened in other nominations but you don't want this to happen. that's clear. there really is no good reason to vote against mike pompeo. i think we can work with rand paul. i hope that those conversations continue to gain his support. but there really is no reason by the democrats who voted for mike pompeo to be cia director to oppose his nomination for secretary of state other than blind and absurd partisanship. steve: absolutely. the growing opposition from the democrats suggest that the democrats do not want the president to have
4:06 am
anybody on his national security team who is in lock step with the president. but, you look historically, we have never seen this kind of thing regarding a secretary of state. for instance, on george w. bush's first secretary, colin powell was confirmed by unanimous voice consent. hillary clinton, when she ran for secretary of state, her conversation, only two no votes. john kerry got three. are you telling me every single democrat is going to say nope, not going to give the president the guy he wants? that would be historic. brian: the pressure on these democrats in republican states will be strong. joe manchin is going to vote against a guy so qualified west point. are you going to tell me john tester is going to say to the people of montana i vote with the president a lot. you can trust me and not vote for this secretary of state? by the way the hardest vote was tillerson, the guy who came out of business and got an award from vladimir putin. that was a tougher vote.
4:07 am
this should be a layup. he has already proven himself in a very respected cia director who has the president's residence because he briefs him every day. what is extraordinary to say i don't want him agreeing with the president too much. how dare they? what are they the supervisor of the president? steve: they are together on the same page. keep in mind, the senate has already confirmed mike pompeo once, and the vote was 66-32. why would it be any different this time? ainsley: if is he good enough to runt cia, wouldn't he be good enough for this position as well? steve: hello. ainsley: president is in mar-a-lago going to head to key west to go to antismuggling center. meantime yesterday, california's governor jerry brown said he will deploy those 400 national guardsmen all over the state. but there are conditions. he says he will -- they will not enforce immigration laws and they will not help construct a wall. steve: that's right. brian: what a joke this is. here's the quote. california's national guard service members shall not engage in any direct law enforcement role, nor
4:08 am
enforce immigration laws. that's the key. arrest people for immigration law violations like getting here illegally, guard people taken into custody for alleged immigration violations? or support immigration law enforcement activities. what are they going to do the laundry? what are they bothering for? that's what the federal government is paying for to show up in camouflage and not doing anything? steve: well, but that's not the intent. that's not why the president ordered them up. if i would -- i'm sure people are going well, mr. president, you are going to fund 400 national guardsmen in the great state of california if they are not going to do what you want them to do? it seems like a no-brainer. it seems like, you know, jerry brown is just finding busy work for them. meanwhile jamiel shaw sr. has been on this program a number of times. he lost his son to somebody who was in this country illegally. he was on about a half an hour ago talking to us about a message for jerry brown. we asked him if he had one, and he did. and, boy, was it powerful. >> every person who has died

4:10 am
of hard to see, but, look at california. they released 89 gang members in to society without calling ice. and you got maryland 13, the state of texas, i think is 11. and along with washington. ainsley: austin is sanctuary city? steve: probably. and new york 4. it goes on and on. it's extraordinary the number of states not coopghting with the federal government. brian: most of the american people want the border reinforced and most people want their immigration laws reinforced. the numbers are strong. if any of you want to play politics, you are playing it wrong. number two he says, governor brown came out and said listen, you guys are playing with numbers and act like all criminals are illegal immigrants. that's not the point. we know there are people here in this country horrible people who commit crimes and waiting to go to jail and should. it's likes saying because there are traffic accidents, it's okay to drink and drive and have a traffic accident. traffic accidents are unavoidable. people will die. i get that if you drink and drive or use any type of
4:11 am
drugs and drive. that, of course, is breaking the law and chances are higher. why would you allow that? you don't. why would you allow illegal criminals to stay here. you shouldn't. that's the point to governor brown. ainsley: two thirds release of these gang members released occurred in california, governor brown. 15 of these are in ms-13 gangs. known for those gruesome crimes. brian, your neck of the woods where ms-13 lives. you did those stories with two families those are the same families invited to the state of the union address. those moms when you hear those stories what their daughters went through, young girls, high school members. the police couldn't identify these young girls that's how gruesome their murders were. steve: all they have to do is cooperate with the feds which happens all across the country except in certain spots. ainsley: we just want our country to be safe. brian: jill january, if she cooperates me may be reading the news. jillian: i may not want to. brian: the show would grind to a halt.

4:18 am
fbi. how do you know? >> well, i mean, we know because we have a number of documents. a growing body of evidence, brian, that now would suggest that director comey, who under corn testimony, a number of times, has said there was no coordination between loretta lynch's doj and our fbi investigation. not only was that false, but we know that over and over again now, we have emails that would suggest that that testimony was false and at best mislead the american public. at worse was lying to congress. and here we are today with emails, text messages, that says that even the no coordination message that director comey put out on that infamous day in july, was actually suggested by the department of justice. brian: here's the text, timing looks like hell peter strzok says to lisa page.
4:19 am
it will appear choreographed. all major news networks literally leading with the a.g. to accept the fbi director's recommendation. yeah, this is awful. nothing we can do about it. i mean, this is like a third rate movie playing out on text messages. these people are supposed to be guarding our secrets and seeking truth and justice. they don't know how to secure their own texts. >> it's interesting that they would go back and forth saying that the timing looks awful. but there is even another email from the department of justice that would indicate that on how to articulate the exoneration of hillary clinton. aand so as you go further from another source, other than peter strzok and lisa page, within the department of justice, we now know that the edits that they had given edits to director comey or at least the emails would suggest that as we are looking at this, we have director comey out there saying well, you know, i was a boy scout, i was above reproach. now we have evidence that would suggest that that's
4:20 am
not accurate. so we have to look at it further. brian: also, keep in mind, you might have some help. looks like mccabe and comey are turning on each other. the deputy and the former director, one fired. they are actually both fired. i think you might get the truth out of their testimony. >> well, as it goes back and forth, you see that there is each one saying that the other one was not telling the truth. now we -- what we have is beyond just the two of them though. it's other people within the fbi and doj who know that the testimony that director comey gave before congress was not entirely the whole truth and nothing but the truth. and so as we look at that there is also additional evidence that would suggest that doj narrowed the scope of the hillary investigation to make sure. brian: gotcha. >> she was exonerated. brian: mark meadows keep that staff working because we have to keep the facts.

you feel? >> there was a very loud noise. and the plane started vibrating and shuttering and it was very, very loud. and the oxygen masks drop out of the compartment and we -- i think everyone knew that something really bad had happened. we weren't sure exactly what at that time. the plane started depressure rising and basically going down. definitely losing altitude. interestingly enough, the passengers were very calm for the most part. and my feeling was, initial feeling was, well, okay, i don't have any control over this situation. this is definitely not in my hands. steve: right. >> i had a real sense of calm about me. which looking back surprises me but that's just how it
4:28 am
was. i wasn't panicked. i wasn't hysterical. i truly believed that if it was -- if it was meant for us to land safely we would. if it wasn't, that was just how it was going to be. steve: you are just trusting the pilot who as it turns out was a great hero tammy jo schultz a navy avery aviator. you were in a dive she was trying to get down to the lower altitude because you needed the oxygen. >> right. >> that's a picture of the pilot we showed the picture of the window right there. sitting at that seat was jennifer riordan. i know at one point they asked is there anybody here who is an emt there was a firefighter and emt in her row apparently. you got up, why? >> actually the emt was not in her row. he was sitting on the other side of the plane slightly in front of me. several rows in front of me. and he went back immediately
4:29 am
when he discovered that, you know, there was something going on behind us. i staye stayed in my seat around and turned around to see what was happening. there was a lot of activity back there. recommendation. steve: sure. >> about two seconds after that they said does anyone know cpr? i took off my mask. i took off my seat belt and i went to help andrew who was the emt and we did cpr for, well until the plane landed. steve: yeah. i know there have been a lot of stories about what had happened to this woman and i know you don't want to get too graphic, so how would you describe the condition you found her in? >> i didn't know at the time that the window had blown. so did i not know what i was going to see when i walked back there. i will say that her injuries were substantial. there was a lot of trauma to her head and her neck and her upper torso and that's
4:30 am
already come out, i believe, from the coroner. but, you know, i didn't know. and so, you know, you just at that point you don't think about it anymore. you look at it, you assess the scene, and andrew was already giving compressions and i told him i was a registered nurse and i would assist him and we traded out. i attempted to establish an airway. i didn't feel like i ever got an airway established very well. there was no pulse. but we continued to exchange positions to give compressions. steve: i have heard accounts that apparently the only thing that kept the woman in the plane was the fact that her seat belt was still on and that's why you were able to then try to save her life but it doesn't sound like that was a possibility given her extensive injuries. but, what is it about -- okay, so, peggy, i know you felt when you were going
4:31 am
down that this was it. this could be it. the masks are going down and this could be it. yet, when you heard them say anybody know cpr, you took your mask off and you went back to help. where does that come from. >> that comes from being a registered nurse over 20 years. that's just what we do. that's just in our -- it's just part of who we are. you know that any time you step on a plane, any time you are out in public, anything can happen at any given time. and it's almost like you are always on call in your mind, you know. and you are always going to be ready to step in and lend assistance. and that's just what medical personnel do. rns do that on a daily basis. and you just -- it was almost -- i was almost relieved to have something to do that would -- that i knew i was in control of. i know how to do cpr. i can help. steve: sure. >> that was a good feeling for me to know that i could
4:32 am
at least attempt to help. steve: yeah. well, you know, they were lucky to have you on the plane. peggy phillips, thank you very much for joining us and telling us your story. >> you are very welcome. thank you. cut back on that. but if it feels like a lot of effort for a little gain, change that. start with something that makes a big difference... ...your student loans. refinancing with sofi could save you $30,000. it's an easier way to reach your life goal sooner. we've helped over 195,000 people. we want to help you too. find out how much you can save in just two minutes at sofi.com/save.

ainsley: we have a live look from houston, the city that is celebrating the life of our former first lady barbara bush, lighting up city hall as you can see in her favorite color of blue ahead of tomorrow's public memorial. brian: we now know first lady melania trump will go. the obamas will go. the clintons will go. and they will attend the former first lady's funeral. that will be on saturday. steve: adam housley is live outside the funeral home in houston with the very latest. adam? >> yeah. we have heard from all those distinguished guests in the last couple of days about barbara bush and what she meant to them. and here in houston, as you showed, the pictures of the city hall lighting up in
4:36 am
blue, her favorite color. tonight, there is a candlelight vigil also right now there are flowers that have been laying there for the last 24 hours in memo mormemomemoriam. tomorrow she lies in repose at a church just down the street from here. that's when the public mourning process, celebration as well of her life will begin with the ability to see her lie in repose if you care to do so. we are also hearing more from her family including this sound bite from her children about their beloved mother of 92 years. take a listen. >> my mother was at peace for what took place. she believes in an after life. and was joyously looking forward to that after life. >> and we keep hearing those same comments from george w. and entire family and friends that knew her very well that talked to her in the last couple of weeks that she was prepared for
4:37 am
this. and she did her life on her terms from the very beginning to the very end, guys. going home, being with her family and deciding to live her last few moments at home with her beloved george h.w. bush. steve: thank you very much. a live report from houston. fox news channel will have live coverage on saturday from houston. brian: thanks, adam. meanwhile the man just checking his iphone was the co-author of let trump be trump, david bossie, former campaign manager with. ainsley: wrote it with corey lewandowski he said you were his favorite. >> you know, the truth hurts. sorry corey. brian: i have to expose. i have not yet made a decision but i'm leaning towards bossy. >> thank you. brian: first off on robert mueller investigation, the president made it clear yesterday those two gentleman are in charge for the last seven months people have been telling me that i'm going to fire him but listen. >> there was no collusion with russia, other than by
4:38 am
the democrats. this was a really a hoax created largely by the democrats as a way of softening the blow of a loss. you look at the fact that their server, the dnc server was never gotten by the fbi. why did the fbi take it? the fbi takes what they want. they go in, they wouldn't get the server. as far as the investigation, nobody has ever been more transparent than i have instructed our lawyers be totally transparent. as far as the two gentlemen you told me about, they have been saying i'm going it get rid of them for the last three months, four months, five months, and they are still here. steve: they are still here. >> he is not going to fire mueller. is he not going to fire rosenstein. is he not going to fire mueller, is he not going to fire rosenstein. we continuously have this conversation. i don't know how many times
4:39 am
we have had to have it the left continues this mantra because that's all they have. they have no agenda for america or for the american people. they don't have a solution to our economy, our national security problems. they only want to attack this president who has done an incredible job over the last 15 months. ainsley: they would love to fire mueller because they want that narrative. >> all they want to do is create this narrative across the country, which is false. a false narrative. that's all they have is lies. just to be able to spread. steve: david, the president brought up something good why didn't the fbi go in and get the server because debbie wasserman schultz said no, you can't have it i don't remember any hey, you know, mr. cohen can i have those records? well, he did. >> pretty please. steve: he said he was cooperating they wound up raiding that place and the other lawyer. >> from an outsider's point of view, the way the fbi and the way the doj treated hillary clinton in that investigation of the emails and all of that. brian: with the dnc it wasn't criminal behavior. it's hey, you have been
4:40 am
hacked, you should do something about it. steve: it was espionage. brian: wasn't something they did criminally. wasn't something the democrats. >> american people understand the way hillary clinton was treated, the way her people were interviewed, together not under oath. steve: with immunity. >> with an immunity deal amongst them. versus how president trump and his team are being treated, the american people see what's going on. they see what has happened here. brian: the "wall street journal" today has a column from jay goldberg saying he talked to the president on friday. told the president michael cohen is going to flip and be much more fearful of what cohen has got than what mueller has. he is the attorney that handled his two divorces. >> and i know who he is i don't know him but i know who he is. i think that was a very strong statement from him to say, you know, and i think he went on further to say don't meet with mueller. don't give them an interview. you know, i think every lawyer has a different opinion on what the president should or shouldn't be doing. the one thing that is true is what the president said.
4:41 am
he has been transparent. he has had all of his people and his legal team cooperate with this investigation to try to get the russian collusion hoax, which is what it is, behind us. because, as a nation, it's best if we do that look, the world is in a dangerous place. and i'm sick and tired of the democrat party using our foreign policy, with the russians as a political lever. and that's what they have done. that's all they have. ainsley: what about hillary clinton, comey, strzok, page, lynch, are they in criminal trouble? >> some of those folks -- we will see what the ig report says in a few weeks. if there is a continuation of an investigation or referrals in that ig report, i think that's going to be the next big shoe to drop. steve: all right. david bossie. the bossiest guy on the couch. ainsley: let trump be trump he says. >> thank you. ainsley: david starbucks going to close thousands of
4:42 am

i no wondering, "what if?" uncertainties of hep c. i let go of all those feelings. because i am cured with harvoni. harvoni is a revolutionary treatment for the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. it's been prescribed to more than a quarter million people. and is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who've have had no prior treatment with 12 weeks. certain patients can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. before starting harvoni, your doctor will test to see if you've ever had hepatitis b, which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after harvoni treatment. tell your doctor if you've ever had hepatitis b, a liver transplant, other liver or kidney problems, hiv or any other medical conditions and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni can cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni include tiredness, headache and weakness. ready to let go of hep c?

steve: starbucks under fire after this arrest of two men, black men in philadelphia at one of their stores last week. ainsley: the coffee giant now announcing a bold move. it's going to close more than 8,000 stores on may 29th and risk losing millions of dollars to train their employees on racial
4:46 am
sensitivity. but will it pay off? steve: joining us right now to discuss we have the ceo of the black spear and fox news contributor kevin jackson joins us today from phoenix. kevin, let's start at the beginning. why did the manager call the police at that store in philadelphia? >> who knows, steve? do we really know all the details around that? i keep coming back to businesses can do what they want. there are many places that say no shirt, no shoes, no service. or we reserve the right to refuse service to whomever. so, were these guys right or were they wrong? i don't know. but what i do know is this: this was an isolated incident. starbucks has 8,000 stores, 175,000 employees and this is a single incident that probably should have been incapsulated in that single incident. i was saying to the producer earlier, if these are two white guys, i'm not sitting here and having this discussion. but now because starbucks and we live in this cult of, you know, social justice warrior, they have to face something that quite frankly is ridiculous and is a
4:47 am
cancer on capitalism in america. steve: why is it ridiculous? >> it's ridiculous because if any single employee can trigger a corporation to have to spend millions of dollars, we're talking about we did an estimate it's going to be at least $20 million to give this free day to employees so they can go through millions of dollars of social justice training sensitivity training that the overwhelming majority of these people don't need. if you live in america, you are desensitized to race issues gender issues and all these other issues that people like howard schultz and johnson want to make believe happen routinely. i'm no defender of starbucks. i can't stand the company. i wouldn't invest a nickel in them. but the idea that their ceos believe, former ceo and present ceo believe they have this pervasive attitude of antiblack, anti-whatever racism against blacks is
4:48 am
ridiculous. in philadelphia, that's a city that's overwhelmingly black. that anybody looking at starbucks and say how many other blacks are there in the store? how many people -- how many blacks go to starbucks daily? i go even though i don't necessarily like it. i have never been mistreated and many other blacks go to starbucks and aren't mistreated. we single isolated incident. think about what any corporation faces if one employee happens to do something wrong. ainsley: why do you think starbucks is doing this? they are losing a lot of money. >> i think starbucks has just -- they believe -- they have the muscle memory of barack obama era where everything is an overreaction to something racial. and so they believe this is going to help their stock. they think they are being good corporate citizens, starbucks job is to sell coffee. but if somewhere along the line showered shuttle believed his job was to protect black people. i would say to howard
4:49 am
schultz and kevin johnson black people have done a great job protecting ourselves. we are more than capable of doing this and america is ready to move beyond this. steve: well, it does sound as if eric holder, former attorney general is going to help with the training that day. kevin jackson, we thank you for joining us today from phoenix to weigh in. >> no justice, no coffee, steve. ainsley: thanks, kevin. steve: straight ahead. ainsley: it's the end of an era for the first time in 60 years. cuba will no longer be ruled by castro. our next guest a cuban american says it's no time for celebration. plus, dana loesch is going to join us live in the next hour ♪ on the job from 9 to 5. working 9 to 5, what a way to making a living ♪ barely getting

ainsley: well, it is the end of anner are a in nearly 60 years, cuba will no longer be led by a castro. raúl castro was planning to step down as president later today with his current vice president taking over. so, what does this mean for future relations with our country? maria elvira salazar is a republican congressional candidate for florida's 27th district and cuban american and joins us with insight. good morning, maria, thanks for joining us. >> good morning. thank you for having me. ainsley: you are welcome. what do you think about this news and what do you know about the vice president that will now become the president? >> well, it's just basically a transfer of title, not a transfer of power. we have to remember that was throw brothers are in the business of keeping political power. and they are not going to share any market share with anybody. so, basically, diaz cannell, 57-year-old, pretty much someone unknown for the cubans. not anymore really knows him he is just an emperor with
4:54 am
no clothes. just a figure head. because the power in cuba remains in the hands of the communist party. and the person that is heading or the leader of the communist party is still raúl. so, diaz cannell just a puppet of the castros. ainsley: tell me about your family what is your story. >> i was born first generation american. we really appreciate the system and the freedoms of this country. my parents are political refugees. so i was born and i grew up, i was raised feeling the pain of not having democracy and freedom. you know, there is no exception. cubans want liberty just like the other 27 countries in this hemisphere, just like everybody else. we want freedom, liberty. we want to have free elections. who elected this guy? no one. so, it's an embarrassment right now that the world media is touting or saying that today is a new day for the cuban government because no one named castro is at
4:55 am
the helm. bologna. the castros are still there and the political apparatus and repressive apparatus is still intact. you know, where are the elections? in reality, we have to keep on fighting for the cubans to be free and today is not that day. today there is nothing to celebrate. ainsley: maria, what has americamerica done for you. >> this is the best country in the world. that's why everybody wants to come here. america offers you the opportunity to be somebody you be able to grow and to raise your family in freedom and liberty. to have political elections. and to have freedom in the elections. which is what i always say. we have to love and preserve the system, the american system. because, it may not be perfect, but i assure you that it is still the best that we have in the world. and that's why we have the immigration problem we have because everybody wants to come here. because here you are really a person. when you have -- you know, i
4:56 am
live in miami. we're in miami. you know how many millions of cubans are here that have been able to defy the sharks in the middle of the ocean just wanting to come here. so, in reality, cuba remains the north korea of the hemisphere and we have to keep on fighting to find some freedom. do you know what's great about your story. >> i have thanks to my parents. ainsley: your parents came over here, and i don't know if they had ever been to america, but you were born in america and now you are running for congress. congratulations. proud of you. >> well, that's why -- that's what the system and this country gives you, the opportunity to be the daughter of very poor political refugees and now be able to represent my people in the u.s. congress. could you imagine what that means the glory, thank you for the opportunity. ainsley: you are welcome. thank you so much. maria elvira salazar, we appreciate it. god bless you, thanks. california governor jerry brown agrees to send national guard troops to the border. not enforce immigration

steve: something the president president -- talked a little bit about the upcoming summit with north korean dictator kim jong-un. it will happen at end of may, or early june. apparently the venue is one of the main sticking points out. it will not happen in washington, beijing, seoul or pongyang. sounds like a possibility it could be singapore, switzerland or sweden. ainsley: this is what the president said about that meeting. >> i will be meeting with kim jong-un in the coming weeks to discuss the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. hopefully that meeting will be a great success and we're looking forward to it. it would be a tremendous thing for north korea and a tremendous thing for the world. we have never been in a position like this with that regime. if i think that it is a meeting
5:04 am
that is not going to be fruitful, we're not going to go. if the meeting when i'm there is not fruitful. i will respectfully leave the meeting. brian: it is so smart to say, listen, i'm not promising the moon. i'm not saying we're at the goal line. i'm telling you that there was enough there when i sent my cia director, soon to be secretary state of saw enough promise to go ahead with it. the key to the summits is plowing the ground so you don't go in there blind. i think in this way i think this will be the situation. they go in there with certain marks to hit. but after leaves, there will be a lot of negotiation after he is done. rather than leaving with an agreement, i think they will leave with a framework to move forward on talks. meanwhile at the same time no more nuclear tests. maybe we subside on the war exercises. we have 38,000 troops. maybe we pull 3,000 back.
5:05 am
steve: i think they will wind up with a deal. you look at the news -- brian: he will leave with a deal. steve: absolutely. that is why you have somebody at another level to go set the table. you show up, wind up with a big deal. we don't know that will happen. with mike pompeo has been a great cia director, approved by the senate 66-32 looks like tough sledding for mr. pompeo in the senate this time now that he wants to be the chief diplomat. ainsley: rand paul said he wasn't going to support mike pompeo becoming secretary of state but the president says he thinks that he will come around. he thinks he will be a yes vote. he needs a yes vote. cory gardner says there is no good reason to vote against mike pompeo. >> the senate historian going back to 1925, never happened for a secretary of state nominee. happened in other nominations. you don't want this to happen,
5:06 am
that is clear. there is no good reason to vote against mike pompeo. we can work with rand paul. i hope conversations continue to gain the support. there is no reason by the democrats who voted for mike pompeo for the cia director, other than than blind, absurd partisanship. brian: how will trump treat the secretary of state and affect the state department. rex tillerson wrecked the place. morale was in the toilet. a lot of people resigned. maybe something had to be done. there was no sign that they would reconcile the state department in his image. this secretary of state has the president's ear. has to understand he needs to rebuild the state department. they will have great street cred. marco rubio kind of against tillerson tweeted out with iran threatening, china, russia, north korea, u.s. national security now is not the time to pay politics and block pompeo. do the mature thing, not the
5:07 am
partisan thing for the first time in years. steve: the senate liked the fact rex tillerson was not on the same page all the time with the president. so democrats felt he would be a counterbalance. brian: not during the nomination process. steve: good cop, bad cop, they weren't always on the same page. now because mike pompeo and the president are sipmatico democrats say i don't know if we want a yes men as secretary of state. brian: that is not up to them. steve: hillary clinton up for nomination, only two no votes. john kerry up for nomination, only three no votes. for every democrat to say no that would be crazy. ainsley: no matter what the president wants, the swamp or the democrats want to say absolutely not. even when it comes to something our country's safety. brian: if it has to go to the floor, it is embarassment, first time in decades that the case. if it goes to the floor no guarranty to passage if democrats don't flip. who benefits, think about
5:08 am
november, in this case, they know they can embarass this president, has a cia director get confirmed. could be tougher. has a va secretary to get confirmed. could be even tougher than that. meanwhile president of the united states was asked of course before he left about the mueller investigation with the japanese leader right there. here is what he said to make it clear he is not firing anybody and never was. >> there was no collusion with russia other than by the democrats. this was a, really a hoax created largely by the democrats as a way of softening the blow of a loss. you look at the fact that their server, the dnc server was never gotten by the fbi. why didn't the fbi take it? the fbi take what is they want. they go in, they wouldn't get the server. as far as the investigation nobody has ever been more transparent than i have instructed our lawyers, be
5:09 am
totally transparent. as far as the two gentlemen you told me about, they have been saying i'm going to get rid of them for the last three months, four months, five months. and they're still here. ainsley: we had david bossie on the curvy coach earlier. he wrote the book with corey lewandoski, called let trump be trump. he is the elected he is the man he is. let him be trump. david bossie says the democrats would love for the president to fire mueller to have something against him. they love the russia lead, russia investigation. listen to this. >> the american people see what's going on. the world is in a dangerous place and i'm sick and tired of the democrat party using our foreign policy with the russians as a political lever. that is what they have done. that is all they have. they have no agenda for america or for the american people. they don't have a solution to our copy, our national security problems. they only want to attack this

president who has done an incredible job. brian: one of the biggest fears what happened yesterday. a president acting like a president, getting respect of another world leader, going ahead making historic achievements in north korea to get is to this point. that is when you see the press move against him. have to come up with something to get people's attention off legitimate policy. instead of debating a policy or procedure, they want to pull it into not ready, not worthy. ainsley: what if he has the meeting meeting with kim jong-un and gets rid of nuclear weapons, how do you think the press will handle that? they will still be against him, right? brian: it will be very tough to get around that. steve: the press doesn't like the president. i'm getting a feeling like. brian: trust your instincts. steve: 8:10 in new york city. jillian you have a fox news alert. jillian: we'll get you caught up on this story we're following. a man accused of recruiting 9/11 terrorists for al qaeda is behind bars. kurd irforces interrogating him

5:18 am
ron, are you okay on limitations on 400 national guard members? >> we're asked for limited missions from the border state. we're glad he deployed in the southwest border. the restrictions are not that different we're asking the guard to do. we're looking for aviation support and watch sensor feeds, cameras for us. road maintenance, brush clearing, that help us do the mission bedder and replace agents doing those border functions. they will be deployed to the border. brian: they will not guard people taken into custody or arrest people arrested for immigration violations or enforce immigration activities and you're okay with that? >> we'll not ask them to do law enforcement duties. that is the rules set we put together with the pentagon. brian: we're stunned to see sanctuary state and all these cities rising up saying that is not okay with me. they're beginning to sue the government of california to get rid of that status. what is the problem with

sanctuary state status when it comes to border enforcement? >> it encourages people to go to places where they think they might be safe. this is not -- no jurisdiction should be put in a place where they're protecting people that broke the law, that law crossing the border illegally. it is not safe for communities those people live in. it is not safe for our law enforcement officers. i'm very good friends with the director at i.c.e., tom homan. he says their officers are in more danger when they look for fugitives in communities or hopes. it is contrary to their officer's safety and not good for the communities either. brian: ron, it is logic. it is harderrer to find somebody than it is to pick somebody up waiting for you after they were apprehended by local officials. i was staggered to see this map. how many isis, excuse me, ms-13 members have been released back into society after they came back into this country. 2/3 are from california. 89 in all. 53 to the rest of the country. how do we change that?
5:20 am
