6:00 am
>> jesus loves me, you are my sunshine, the imperial march from "star wars" and we say our prayers and go good night. >> what's the next song? >> a good day. >> good morning, everybody. fox news alert. the north korean vip for a message to the president. he has a letter to president trump from north korea's supreme leader. what's in it? this is friday's edition of "america's newsroom." >> sandra: i'm in for sandra smith. the visit from kim jong-un's right hand man marks the first time a north korean official has been at the white house in nearly 20 years. the high stakes diplomacy coming amid growing signs this summit in singapore is now looking more and more like a sure thing.
6:01 am
white house correspondent kevin corke is live with more on this intrigue. >> you're right, a hand delivered letter by its nature certainly underscores the importance of the correspondence. that letter that you pointed out will be delivered to the white house sometime this afternoon we suspect by a high-ranking north korean official, kim yong chol. he was in the city yesterday meeting with secretary of state mike pompeo yesterday. they covered all the ground necessary in less time than expected. >> we've made real progress in the last 72 hours towards setting the conditions. the conditions are putting president trump and chairman kim jong-un in a place where they think there could be real progress made by the two of them meeting. there is no good if we don't think there is real opportunity. >> he said this. the president has made it clear if kim jong-un denuclearizes there is a brighter path for
6:02 am
the dmrk. a strong, connected, secure and prosperous north korea that maintains its cultural heritage but integrated into the community of nations. amid the optimism, there is a fair amount of skepticism in some corners of the administration as you can well imagine. keep in mind the north has previously made grand plans and proclamations about its nuclear program only to go back on its word. this picture from october of 2000 there with then-president bill clinton. as you also pointed out when chol makes his way here we look for read out from the president. for now, back to you. >> everyone wanting to know what's in that letter. >> bill: something to watch there. breaking overnight. samantha bee apologizing for the vulgar comment about ivanka
6:03 am
trump. tbs executives has condemned it but she still has a job. here is the tweet from president trump. why aren't they firing samantha bee for the terrible language used. total double standard. we're winning and doing so for a long time to come. >> they send a message that you're allowed to tack a conservative woman in the most vile of terms and they're okay with that because they basically waited until she apologized. took a day for this to come together. cnn anchor called out his own company. this should have been swift, immediate apology and she should lose her show. >> bill: you think she should be fired clearly. >> absolutely. >> bill: she was at an awards ceremony last night. showed up on stage and part of her statement was every week i strive to show the world as i see it unfiltered. sometimes i should probably have a filter.
6:04 am
i don't think you disagree with that. here is tbs, right? samantha bee has taken the right action apologizing for the violent and inappropriate language she used about ivanka trump last night. where is the double standard if roseanne barr loses her job and samantha bee keeps hers? many folks on the right think that. do you feel the same? >> roseanne barr loses her job, samantha bee stays and thrives. this comments were scripted, edited and put in a teleprompter. the executive producer celebrated when the words trended on twitter and tbs doesn't seem to have a problem with it. they give it a half apology and that's it. on with her life. samantha bee i want to point this out is not a feminist in the women celebrating her. she is a hateful prove act tour. >> she said i want to apologize
6:05 am
to ivanka trump and my viewers. it was inappropriate and inexcusable. i crossed the line and deeply regret it. >> it is not enough because she thought this out. she was celebrated. roseanne barr apologized, too, and lost her job. tbs is sending a message. you can say whatever you want with the last name of trump and say a watered down apology and remain on this network. >> bill: more on this. we'll see if there is fallout today. did you hear john boehner? he had a lot to say about president trump and what he is doing in terms of the positive momentum with the economy and deregulation. he made this comment about the republican party that caught our ear. listen. >> i want to talk to you about what has happened with the republican party. >> there is no republican party. there is a trump party. republican party has taken a
6:06 am
nap somewhere. >> bill: john boehner is funny? >> there is a republican party. i'm their spokesperson and led by president trump. i don't agree with the tone he had there. it's a good thing president trump is the leader of this party and i would remind speaker boehner president trump got more republican votes than anyone in our country. president trump has a commanding lead of this party. that's a good thing. he is governing as a conservative. >> bill: you care to comment about the nap? >> we aren't taking a nap. every day we're hard at work and so is this president accomplishing 64% of the conservative agenda. pretty good for 18 months. >> bill: nice to talk to you. we shall speak again. what's next? >> canada, mexico and e.u. are vowing to hit back after the
6:07 am
trump administration rolls out steep new tariffs on steel and aluminum. the back and forth reigniting concerns of an all-out trade war. trump responding on twitter with two simple words, fair trade. benjamin hall is with us. >> a lot of angry loud voices from across the world including some of america's closest allies who say the tariffs on steel and aluminum may lead to a trade war. we're seeing counter measures being brought in by a number of those countries, canada, mexico and european union fighting back to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, 25% on steel, 10% on aluminum. the european union has a 10-page list of goods from motorcycles and bourbon and food products. macron told u.s. trumps said
6:08 am
the new u.s. tariffs are illegal and a mistake. he said the response would be firm and he warned economic nationalism like this leads to war. canada has also announced plan to slap counter tariffs ton 12.8 billion worth of u.s. products ranging from steel, toilet paper. trudeau said he hopes common sense will prevail. >> these tariffs are totally unacceptable. for 150 years canada has been the united states's most steadfast ally. >> mexico complaining the tariffs will distort international trade and they said they'll penalize u.s. imports including po,, apples and cheeses. volkswagen said it could start a trade war that no side could win. the european and chinese
6:09 am
foreign ministers meeting to see deeper trade ties. we see the pivot east. this is a campaign pledge of president trump. he wants to negotiate a better deal as a result. there is some way to be played out on this. we'll see who comes out on top. >> benjamin hall live. >> bill: a little bit of movement here and there. anybody who expects a quick resolution is kidding themselves. it will go on for some time. >> the president promised this and is following through. >> bill: with multiple countries. china, mexico, canada and others. the jobs market is on a tear. the unemployment dropping to its lowest level in about 20 years. details on the numbers and what it means for you. there is this. >> president trump: we will get the wall. we've already started doing it. >> president trump doubling down on his long-held promise of building a border wall as the battle over immigration heats up, we hear from a leader
6:10 am
of a border patrol agent union later on. >> bill: also a gruesome discovery. multiple bodies inside of a home. what could be the sign of a potential serial killer. >> it is scary because that could be my children over there or could be my wife. i'll take that. [cheers] 30 grams of protein and 1 gram of sugar. new ensure max protein. in two great flavors.
6:11 am

6:12 am
and just wants to give up and die. and that's where we come in. we are called to comfort these people, to be a blessing to their lives. - [voiceover] for just $45, we'll rush an emergency survival package to help one desperate elderly person for a month. call right now. - [eckstein] call the number on your screen. - in ukraine, there's no supper network. they don't have food cards or neighbors that come in to help. they're turning to us because they have nowhere else to turn. - [voiceover] your gift is a life line to help these elderly jewish holocaust survivors, help them to live out their final years with dignity and love. call right now. - [eckstein] call the number on your screen.

6:14 am
in hawaii. authorities have given people 24 hours to leave an area declaring it off limits indefinitely saying anyone who stays behind could be subject to arrest. fema announcing it has no plans to enter the area after 12:06 p.m. the lava bubbling to the if you recall says yesterday was the hottest since the volcano erupted. >> it is going to be a process that will take days and weeks to work our way through. there will be tough moments and difficult times. >> president trump: a letter will be delivered to me from kim jong-un. i look forward to seeing what's in the letter. but it's very important to them. so they will be probably coming down to washington, d.c. on friday. >> bill: this is the story of the morning. secretary pompeo and president trump giving the lowdown on talks with the north korea
6:15 am
official. they've made some progress. the same official from north korea will go to the white house and bring the letter for kim jong-un. republican congressman scott taylor out of virginia and former navy seal. how are you, sir, welcome back to "america's newsroom." we had an interesting conversation bill richardson the other day and cautious how you move forward. north koreans are super cagey. you have to be aware of all that. what is your expectation given the comments of mike pompeo from yesterday and this letter today? >> i think they have been super cagey. the roles are reversed here. they have been -- president trump's predecessors -- this president has thrown the north korean regime offguard. i'm skeptical but optimistic there will be a summit and positive outcomes from it. >> bill: if you have the summit. i think the president alluded to this, too, it could be the first of many meetings and go on for months.
6:16 am
we could argue it going on for years. >> no question nothing will be solved like that. >> bill: do you think north korea is at the point of just giving up their nukes? >> i don't. i think that's important and where my skepticism comes in. this president has certainly with military pressure, with sanctions, with the ability and the power to walk away from the table has really changed the dynamic and altered the calculus for north korea. however, i think what they get in exchange for denuclearization is going to be the key thing, right? i spoke a bunch of times i think the president can have a marshall plan or a trump plan where you use asian economies to put forth a fund to help bring the country into the community of nation states but not with american money but with the countries that stand the most to lose if there is war and people in treasure in japan and south korea and taiwan and china. i think you need something like
6:17 am
that to really fundamentally alter the calculus of the north korean regime so they will actually denuclearize. >> bill: the other point richardson made, a lot of good meetings going on. it appears to be a lot of good meetings. but he says don't rush it. get it right. but how do we determine what's right in a situation like this? >> we have history so we can look at some of the claims of the previous north korean regimes who claimed they would suspend or stop their nuclear program. we have to have rigorous oversight from inspectors to make sure it actually happens. i think this president and administration and pompeo have done a great job to get us to where we are today. but to actually fundamentally get rid of the nukes on the korean peninsula you will have to have more carrot. i think the asian countries that stand to lose the most could probably step up and help
6:18 am
out. you are seeing russia is trying to come to the table. you'll probably see china as this president trump is more successful in bringing them to the table. you'll see the other countries with interests in the region will want to play a part, too. there is a real opportunity for peace here and this administration should absolutely be applauded for their effort. >> bill: we hope you're right about the peace effort. there is an election in november. you are in the second district of virginia. far eastern part of the state. comstock is running against a democrat by the name of hellmer. this was the ad that hellmer's team put out this week. here is part of that. watch. >> after 9/11 the greatest threat to our democracy lived in a cave. today he lives in the white house. no one, even the president, is above the law. barbara comstock has been every politician. i'm different. >> bill: doesn't live in a cave, lives in the white house. what do you think of this approach and talk?
6:19 am
>> i see things like that across the country and they're overplaying with the rhetoric. normal people think it's stupid and ridiculous. i would never count comstock out. she works her butt off and does a great job for the 10th district of virginia and i think she will win. i don't think that kind of stuff works. i think it's ridiculous. >> bill: he is a veteran, too, you're aware of that. >> appreciate his service but trying to overplay your hand with those kind of comparisons are stupid, just dumb. >> bill: scott taylor, thank you for your time and appreciate you coming in today. thanks. >> heather: president trump facing some scrutiny after a round of high-profile pardons. but now the wife of former governor rod blagojevich thanking the president for commuting her husband's prison sentence and says that robert mueller and james comey perverted the law against her families. details on that straight ahead. >> bill: hard to play golf when you have a moose on the loose, heather. >> heather: a moose on the loose.
6:20 am
>> bill: he didn't want to give up, either. it made a memory. we'll tell you how it ended up on that hole. but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally found in jellyfish, prevagen is the number one selling brain-health supplement in drug stores nationwide. prevagen. the name to remember.
6:21 am
6:22 am
6:23 am
>> bill: big moose causing mayhem on a golf course in utah. he is chasing after a couple as they were playing. they keep on driving in the golf cart. thankfully the cart was a little faster than the moose. check it out. >> heather: it looks like a baby moose. >> it is coming in hot. we jump in the golf cart and drive away after we teed off the next hole he found his way back down to the golf course and came at us again. i had a good round going and parred the hole. >> bill: moose picked up his ball. eventually the moose lost
6:24 am
interest and trailed off. how about that? >> heather: what kind of hazard would that be? >> bill: a big hazard. if the moose could find a lost ball there would be value in that. >> heather: there is that. >> bill: that moose is taller than the golf cart. >> heather: it still looked like a baby moose. >> bill: couple is okay and finished their round. >> heather: good to know. a gruesome discovery at a home in massachusetts. police finding three dead bodies at the home of a man that they had already charged with kidnapping, sexual assault and torturing women. officials admitting they have their hands full with this case. >> we'll continue in daylight to continue to search this property and whatever else comes from there. but as you can imagine it's a very complicated investigation. all hands are on deck from the springfield police department. >> heather: all hands on deck. molly line the live with more from boston. >> this really is a bizarre case.
6:25 am
it starts with a broken taillight. leads to a police car chase and a kidnapping victim is discovered and the grisly discovery of three bodies is made. the man at the center of this investigation is this man arrested sunday after police tried to pull him over for a broken taillight he took off after a chase. he rammed a police car before being forced to a stop and boxed in and officers discovered a woman in the car that told him that she was held against her will for a month. suffered severe abuse and he was charged with kidnapping and threat to commit a crime, murder, and resisting arrest. by midweek as investigators combed the home where he live the horrific discovery of two bodies is made. thursday evening the discovery of a third body was announced. prosecutors have yet to reveal the identities of the dead or offer too much information on the female victim they rescued. here is the district attorney.
6:26 am
>> we're considering this an active investigation and not declaring any suspects. the woman he was with was an acquaint ans of his. i'm not confirming the existence of any children at this point. >> they're just beginning to look into the case and continuing to scour the property today. they say at this point they do not believe there is a heightened risk or threat to members of the public. the man is being held on $1 million bail. >> heather: not sure how that makes neighbors in that area feel. they have to be concerned. >> it is discon erting. >> bill: 9:27. markets open in three minutes. a new job reports show the economy is revving up even more. we'll bring it to you when the opening bell goes down in a moment. >> comedian kathy griffin going after sarah sanders while defending samantha bee over the vulgar comments about ivanka trump. mike huckabee is here to
6:27 am
respond. >> bill: did you stay up late last night? what a finish. did a major blunder cost cleveland game one of the finals? why j.r. smith might owe lebron a major league apology. [thoughtful sigh] still nervous about buying a house? a little. thought i could de-stress with some zen gardening. at least we don't have to worry about homeowners insurance. just call geico. geico helps with homeowners insurance? good to know. been doing it for years. that's really good to know. i should clean this up. i'll get the dustpan. behind the golf clubs. get to know geico. and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be.
6:28 am
6:29 am
just another day on the farm. or is it?
6:30 am
this farmer's morning starts in outer space. where satellites feed infrared images of his land into a system built with ai. he uses watson to analyze his data with millions of weather forecasts from the cloud, and iot sensors down here, for precise monitoring of irrigation. it's a smart way to help increase yields, all before the rest of us get out of bed. >> bill: fox news alert. wall street open for business reacting to the tariff information and also this red hot monthly jobs report that came out 60 minutes ago. we added 223,000 jobs in month in may. it is a gain extending a streak of solid hiring. all this helping to bring the unemployment rate down to 3.8% marking an 18-year low for american. real unemployment rates double that. it measures people no longer working for work who dropped
6:31 am
out of the job market and perhaps now giving them more encouragement to come back in. it's a really good number. they revised a few of the months previous even higher than they were. we're adding jobs. as charles payne would tell you we're cooking with gas right now. >> heather: it shows the trend going on in terms of adding to the economy is continuing. >> bill: charles coming up next hour. we'll get the lowdown from mr. payne on all that. >> heather: comedian kathy griffin is getting back into it with the trump administration coming to the defense of samantha bee. she is taking swipes at white house press secretary sarah sanders after sanders not only denounced bee's comments but asked where was the apology from griffin after her self-portrait with a fake severed head supposed to resemble president trump? griffin going after sanders in this treat and uses an expletive. do not come for me. i did not call you and for expletive sake take a cold
6:32 am
reading class. maybe you won't stumble so much. thank you for joining us. we have kathy griffin responding with a horrible expletive describing a woman to samantha bee who used this vulgar expletive defining or explaining a woman. >> the best way to solve this, if people would only speak in public what they speak in private maybe things would be better. i think people ought to change their private language. if people use vulgar and vile language privately they tend to use it publicly. maybe everybody should clean up what they say behind closed doors and when they get on the stage or have a microphone in front of their face they won't say things that require an apology, a firing or the loss of sponsors. and that's what i find so remarkable about some of this. >> heather: it is remarkable.
6:33 am
we were discussing this earlier and our guest said that she believes it is a message from hollywood showing that they just do not respect women and it is okay to attack women. >> i think that's a large part of it. they respect women if they agree with them wholeheartedly. if they are politically on the same side. they don't really respect women they respect leftist. you can be a leftist and get all the love in the world. if you aren't a leftist then you are going to be given enormous levels of scorn and vulgarity and the most vile kind of language regardless of your gender. it does show that the people who claim to be champion of women are not. they're champion of the left. it is a political ideology, not a gender identity at all. >> heather: but at the same time it's coming from both sides. i was doing a little google search and trying to look up things that happened with the obama administration and things that happened with the clinton administration and their families being targeted, that type of thing.
6:34 am
it really just runs the gamut from both sides. it has gotten worse because of social media. >> i won't in any way defend when conservatives say ugly things about people on the other side. i think it is still disgusting and go back to my point, practice in private being respectful of other human beings. be civil, be kind. you can be funny without being vile and evil. but if you are vile and evil in private and if you do have that kind of disgusting attitude toward other people, if you hold other people in contempt and think you are better than somebody because of your views, then you tend to go out and show that same side of yourself in public and i think that's the real problem. >> heather: i don't know when mean became funny because we are definitely trending in that direction that the meaner you are, the more coverage you get, like we're doing right now. and how did that become funny? >> a lot of it is the loss of inhibitions that have been brought on by the anonymity of
6:35 am
social media. people think they can say things on social media hiding behind their keyboard. people would never say these things to a person's face ever. they wouldn't. even some mean people. some would, they are that uncouth but as my mother used to say, were you raised by wolves? i think some of these people may have been raised by wolves. a lot of this would be fixed by mothers and fathers who taught their kids respect for other human beings and if they didn't, now i understand why millennials eat tide pods and some others truly need their mouths washed out with serious soap. >> heather: i didn't understand that trend when it was going on. maybe that explains it. just on a personal note, when you are talking to sarah off camera behind the scenes maybe around the family dinner, how does she handle things like this? it gets so rough for her. they talk about her appearance. they talk about her supporting
6:36 am
president trump. it just -- how does she handle it privately? >> well, i don't think she enjoys it but on the other hand sarah knows who she is. i believe that her faith, her connection to christ is something that gives her a sense of grounding and centering. and she knows that her ultimate judge is not going to be some hideous comedian. her ultimate judge is the god who created her and knows her a whole lot better than kathy griffin or samantha bee or any of these people and she is pretty content with the fact when she is ultimately judged for her life it won't be by some wanna be comedian and somebody trying to be funny, it will be by the creator of the universe. she will put her life in those hands and i think be far more comfortable with it. >> heather: she is in a tough position, that's for sure. so i admire her. thank you so much for joining us. appreciate it. have a great weekend. >> bill: breaking overnight the israeli military bracing for a new round of protests around the gaza border.
6:37 am
it has been a friday afternoon repeatedly going back months now where there is action. hamas has made news here. mike tobin is in jerusalem. what's happening? >> for more than two months now when palestinians get done with friday prayers they've been gathering at the fence that separates israel from gaza. let me show you file video from previous protests. the palestinians are gathering at the fence now. we have information that at least one group has tried to rush the fence and reports of three injuries thus far. now it is the third friday in ramadan, palestinians go to the mosque and we'll see how big the crowd gets after that. islamic jihad and militants in gaza fired mortars in israel. israel responded with air strikes and grew rockets from hamas and islamic jihad through the night. egypt wanted a cease-fire since
6:38 am
wednesday. u.s. has made a diplomatic move. president trump is now considering giving the u.s. ambassador to israel, david friedman. more control over the u.s. consulate in east jerusalem and responsible for u.s. relations with the palestinians in gaza and the west bank. it has reported directly to the state department in washington now communication will be filtered through the embassy in jerusalem and is particularly aggravating to palestinians because the k*ur current u.s. ambassador is a supporter of the west bank settler movement. i spoke to a palestinian leader who said this shows that the peace efforts are dead as well as a two-state solution. >> bill: thank you. a lot to watch in the middle east. thank you, mike, for that. back at home now. game one nba finals. it was a doozy. final moments of regulation when this happened. >> misses, rebound goes to the cavs. j.r. smith brings it back out.
6:39 am
throws it -- it is blocked. we'll go to overtime. >> bill: the problem. they were tied. smith got the rebound. five seconds left could have put an easy lay-up out. lebron is perplexed. go for it, man. smith said he thought the cavs would call a time-out. they didn't. what happened? we go to overtime. around midnight on the east coast. and the warriors win by 10. lebron had 51 points. the most points he has ever scored in a playoff game. the cavs lose. now it's off to game two. the cavs look to put last night behind them on sunday night at 8:00 prime time eastern time. this is "america's newsroom" scorecard. my bet with sandra is ongoing. nice pose on the right and left. you have to win four. we'll see how it goes. game two on sunday night. great, great game. >> heather: i would have gone for the warriors, too. >> bill: they were a favorite.
6:40 am
>> heather: okay. >> bill: vegas thought so, too. and they are super good and good at passing the ball and making great cuts. cleveland is tough. >> heather: not tough enough last night. >> bill: hang on, all right. >> heather: we have breaking news for you right now. on the hunt for a cop killer in tennessee. we'll have the details after the break. >> bill: president trump not pulling punches when it comes to the animals of ms-13 gang members and why he is demanding action on the border to stop criminals from getting into the country. we'll talk to a border patrol agent about how that effort is happening today coming up next. >> president trump: have you seen what they've done? they want to cut people up into little pieces because it's more painful. and this is why we call the blood thirsty ms-13 gang members exactly the name i used last week. what was the name? >> animals! people would stare.
6:41 am
psoriasis does that.
6:42 am
it was tough getting out there on stage. i wanted to be clear. i wanted it to last. so i kept on fighting. i found something that worked. and keeps on working. now? they see me. see me. see if cosentyx could make a difference for you- cosentyx is proven to help people with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis... ...find clear skin that can last. don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx, you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. never give up. see me. see me. clear skin can last. don't hold back... ...ask your dermatologist if cosentyx can help you find clear skin that lasts. it's funny really, nobody ever does iti didn't do itppens.
6:43 am
and of course it's the really tough stains that nobody ever does ready? really? i didn't do it so when i heard they added ultra oxi to the cleaning power of tide, i knew it was just what we needed so now we can undo all the tough stains that nobody did dad? i didn't do it huh, he didn't do it introducing new tide ultra oxi; it's got to be tide >> heather: some breaking news
6:44 am
to tell you about. the tennessee manhunt for a suspected cop killer is over. police capturing steven wiggins on the run for several days. accused of shooting and killing a sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop. details of where or how he was apprehended aren't known yet. we'll bring you more details as they come into "america's newsroom." >> president trump: we need border wall, we need -- we got to have a change in our laws. our laws are the worst laws of any country anywhere in the world. catch and release, did you ever hear? you catch, you take their names, and you release, oh, great, wonderful. then they are supposed to show up to a court. there is only one problem. they never show up. >> bill: that's president trump talking to a rally in tennessee and a crackdown and dangerous
6:45 am
gangs. art del cueto is live in arizona. good morning to you on a friday. >> thank you very much for having me on. i appreciate it. >> bill: here is what i think whether it's arizona, new mexico, california, texas, we hear a lot of things from a lot of different people. how would you characterize our level of security today along that border? >> you know, i think we have the support that we didn't have for many, many years. when the president runs the country on his instinct everything goes well and from day one president trump's instinct on illegal immigration has been spot on. i had the privilege yesterday to be in a round table discussion with secretary nielsen, a lot of issues were brought up and explained to her on her visit down here on the border. she is an individual willing to listen and i think we'll take a good, tough stance now that we've been lacking before. >> bill: the way you characterize it all in a
6:46 am
forward, positive motion. you mentioned the meeting with secretary nielsen. here is what she said about the argument of separating families and the like. >> unfortunately we have a system where many of these children are placed with families who themselves are illegal aliens. they are not returning phone calls. they aren't lost, they don't want to be found. >> bill: that was in reference to the number that went out earlier 1500 kids being lost in the system. what she said is people don't show up in court. i imagine that's your experience as well. >> it has been happening for years. we arrest these individuals, the law says you can only hold them for a certain amount of time. so they get in these detention facilities. by that time some of these non-government organizations have had a chance to speak with them. a lot of these individuals go in there with the mindset of they understand they are here illegally and the probability of them going back to their country are high. after they have spoken to the ngos now they are asking for
6:47 am
credible fear. that is what gets confusing. once they do credible fear they have to go through the amnesty program and all that and wait to see the judge, the problem is they never go see that judge. and frankly, they know the system. they know how to game the system. when you hear this strong stance it is important. >> bill: if you had a wall, would that be better than it is today? or do you think you can be just as effective without it? >> honestly, you need to place the wall in strategic locations. the president is spot on with all the things he said on illegal immigration. that's what it comes down to. there are strategic locations where we definitely need the wall. what that wall will do is give the agents enough time to get there in time to apprehend anything entering our country. the reality is there is other things you also need to focus on. you need to focus on retention. that's a huge, huge thing right
6:48 am
now. we're losing agents faster than we can hire agents. technology is great, the wall is fantastic but boots on the ground are the most important thing. >> bill: what is the problem with that? why would the agents be leaving? >> there is a lot of problem. under the obama administration the agents took a big pay cut. that really affected the agents when they saw other sister and parent organization of dhs and cdp and other people within that organization are still making a little bit more money. plus it is better areas to work at times because of less remote locations. listen, the men and women that are out there working every day putting their lives on the line do a fantastic job and we're very fortunate to have an administration like president trump that actually is -- has a strong stance against these illegal aliens coming into the country. >> bill: very interesting to talk to and get your perspective. a lot of folks are trying to
6:49 am
figure it out. last week you slammed the deployment of national guard troops to the border as being wasteful. do you believe that's the case if you've got thousands of border national guard troops coming down to help you out? >> we believe that the president is doing the right thing. however, there may be a lot of individuals underneath the president that were still here during the obama administration that aren't on the same page. we never slammed the president, we never went against what the president was saying. that was some of the fake news out there trying to put some kind of divide and at the same time try to embarrass president trump. that was never our intentions and that was not our words that we said. >> bill: thank you for your time today. really appreciate it. art del cueto in arizona. >> heather: house majority leader kevin mccarthy going after google after a search result that listed nazism as part of the republican ideology in california.

6:54 am
party's ideology was nazism. this is very important because california primaries are next week. if you were looking for some information about the party, that is the description that you were met with. >> heather: their explanation in part blamed wikipedia. >> they said they sort of acquire information on their -- for their searches through wikipedia but that doesn't necessarily add up because as they point out the word nazism was nowhere to be found on the california republican party's wikipedia page nor any google news searches. it could have been a hack. they may be telling the truth. there is something fishy going on. >> heather: let's see what they had to say. they said we don't bias our search results toward any political party. sometimes people vandalize public information like
6:55 am
wikipedia which can impact the information that appears in search. because people can go onto wikipedia and add whatever information they want to, right? >> when people looked to see if the word was on the wikipedia page, it wasn't there. no secret silicon valley is liberal. that left leaning bias is scary when you consider they control the information that people read online which helps formulate people's opinions. for example, facebook censoring conservative news, diamond and silk labeled a danger to the community. >> heather: youtube channels being shut down and instagram is impacted. >> google got in trouble for firing a conservative software engineer. couple that with late night tv and it becomes a big deal when you consider how young people consume their news, through facebook, through late night tv
6:56 am
like jimmy kimmel. could they only be seeing one side of the story? i think the answer is yes. >> heather: more and more so as social media continues to just grow and grow, which it is going to do. in terms of samantha bee, you talk about liberal bias let's touch on that. being treated differently than roseanne. roseanne is saying she begged to keep her show. >> one of her tweets said it gave insight into what she did to try to keep the show on the air. she said she had a conversation with abc and said that she tried to explain herself. she said she thought valerie jarrett was white. abc didn't buy that and canceled the show. now we are diving into whole different territory where people are comparing insults between samantha bee and roseanne. >> heather: when you get to that point we have a problem. thank you so much, carly. >> bill: technology, a lot of power. top official from pyongyang will be at the white house today marking the first time a north korean official has been

7:00 am
>> bill: breaking news, rod rosenstein considered recusing himself in the russia matter. senator lindsey graham saying that if the deputy a.g. is being interviewed by bob mueller, then it is time for him to step aside. >> heather: makes sense. >> bill: wow, friday, i'm bill hemmer live inside "america's newsroom." hour two kicking off. sandra has the day off. >> heather: lucky sandra. nice to be here for you. james comey in the meantime has officially been interviewed by prosecutors as they investigates former deputy. >> bill: mueller's investigation has cost taxpayers 16 million large. >> heather: catherine herridge is live for us in washington
7:01 am
hello and what can you tell us about this letter from lindsey graham? >> thank you, heather. good morning. earlier today fox news obtained this letter to the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein from a senior senate republican questioning whether rosenstein should recuse himself from the mueller probe which is looking at the issue of obstruction and the firing of f.b.i. director james comey. when president trump fired director comey he relied on the memo drafted by rosenstein. lindsey graham questions whether rosenstein is a relevant witness for robert mueller presenting a potential conflict of interest. it's been widely reported that mueller's investigation includes whether president trump obstructed the russia probe by firing former f.b.i. director james comey. when president trump fired director comey in may 2017 he relied on a memorandum prepared by you to justify the firing. should you recuse yourself?
7:02 am
>> the state department didn't respond to the letter. >> heather: $16 million. any new details about the skyrocketing cost of the russia investigation? >> we have the report itself. according to the report the taxpayer funded russia probe spent nearly $17 million, as you say, since they opened or robert mueller took over the investigation last year. the special counsel offices are headquartered in washington, d.c. and, according to the justice department report about $10 million has been spent between october and march including 4.5 million spent by the team and 5.5 million spent by the justice department on other expenses attributable to the investigation. the report reads in part the department will continue to dedicate and leverage resources to maintain strong program and financial management controls. that's what the report said adding management takes its programs and financial accountability seriously and dedicated to ensuring that
7:03 am
funds are used in a responsible and transparent manner. shortly after the report came out the president took to twitter writing the a.p. has just reported that the russian hoax investigation has now cost our government over $17 million. not quite that much and going up fast. no collusion except by the democrats. heather. >> heather: all right. catherine herridge live for us. thank you. >> bill: here is another big story. right now president trump awaiting the arrival of a top secret level from the north korean leader kim jong-un. secretary pompeo saying it is not clear if the summit will take place but negotiators he believes are making real progress. here he is from yesterday. >> the conditions are putting president trump and chairman kim jong-un in a place where we think there could be real progress made by the two of them meeting. it does no good if there isn't real opportunity to place them together. we've made real progress for that in the last 72 hours. >> bill: chris wallace of "fox news sunday". good morning to you. this is really interesting when
7:04 am
you think about the move and counter move and the way they're speaking publicly about how they think that they are moving this forward. so what happens today? how much do the actions of today move us toward the possibility of this summit? let's start there. >> we don't know. but i think you have to read the tea leaves. mike pompeo met with vice chairman kim yong chol for several hours both wednesday and thursday and held that news conference in new york where he talked about progress being made, said it would be a tragedy if they didn't take advantage of this situation. those aren't the words of a guy who has met fierce resistance from the north koreans. in addition to which he took the unusual step of asking the vice chairman to come down to washington to meet personally with the president and deliver the letter from kim jong-un. and again, i don't think he would have done that if he wasn't pretty confident that this was a positive letter. we don't know what is going to happen.
7:05 am
i would think from my experience over the years there will be a summit, whether it's the 12th, whether it gets delayed a few days we'll wait and see. but all of the signs point to this thing moving forward whether it's 11 days from now or not. >> bill: i thought your interview with pompeo two weeks ago was illuminating getting inside his head and trying to figure out where he is coming from and moving to. this is what he said yesterday also for our viewers. >> one not ought to be either surprised, frightened or deterred by moments where it looks like there are challenges and difficulties, things that can't be bridged. our mission is to bridge them so we can achieve this historic outcome. >> bill: he is such a capable man in this role and it was evident in your conversation. we don't know what president trump does today. he may greet him in the west wing. he may have him in the oval office. he may give him not just a handshake, perhaps a hug. if you get that moment and that image whose knows, chris, we
7:06 am
could start catapulting ourselves forward toward that meeting. >> yeah, but i think what you just heard there from mike pompeo is very helpful and useful because when the president accepted -- everybody was surprised he accepted the initial offer from kim jong-un that was relayed by the south koreans. i think it was in march. people were surprised by that and i think that in the aftermath of that there may have been overexuberance. it will all get settled. decades of enmity and division will get settled on a day in june. that was always unrealistic. we had the president going out and rallies and people were chanting nobel prize and the president was saying look, clearly was relishing it. the fact that they hit a pothole last week and the president canceled it and now they are kind of joining again and you heard the president yesterday joint base andrews saying it might happen at one meeting or two or three or might not at all is probably
7:07 am
useful caution about this. this isn't going to get settled in one meeting. it is probably going to take a bunch and who knows what it is that the north koreans ultimately have on the table in terms of denuclearization. the idea of optimism but cautious optimism is a useful way to go into this. >> bill: wise counsel. richardson said don't rush it, get it right. the north koreans are cagey. john boehner was speaking in michigan talking about the state of the republican party and president trump. he said this comment. >> there is no republican party. there is a trump party. republican party has taken a nap somewhere. not based on what the polls say. they're won or lost on who shows up to vote. trump's people showed up and hillary's didn't. >> bill: he had a lot of praise for the president and
7:08 am
deregulation and on and on. the phrase about the republican party taking a nap. >> the thing i liked most about that was the shot at the bloody mary on the side of john boehner. there is a certain amount of freedom to getting out of washington and getting out of being the speaker and having to answer to any constituency, you can say or do whatever you want. there are some areas which the president is very much pushing the republican traditional agenda, some areas where he isn't. look at trade. this is a party that has embraced free trade, fair trade but especially free trade for decades. now you have the president threatening or imposing sanctions all over the world. that is certainly not traditional republican orthodoxy. you heard paul ryan the speaker of the house say yesterday how troubled he was by that. so this is the trump republican party. i am not sure i would go as far as boehner. there is a republican party. but the trump republican party and like with any president
7:09 am
they are the party in power and they're bending to the will of its leader. donald trump is taking the party in some areas in very traditional airs and other areas not at all in traditional ways and the party is having to bend to that. >> bill: well noted on the bloody mary. not a glass of red wine this time. it was 4:00 in the afternoon. thank you so much, chris, have a great show this weekend and want to let our viewers know chris sits down with former trump campaign manager corey lewandowski and a big role with mike pence at 2020. check your local listings for sunday morning air times on fox broadcast. see you sunday. >> heather: this morning will prove to be a big test for just how popular the obama wing of the democratic party actually is as they look to defeat president trump in 2020. right now former attorney general eric holder is speaking at politics and eggs at the new hampshire institute of politics.
7:10 am
further fueling speculation that he is planning a white house run. peter doocy joins us from the d.c. bureau. how much has holder said about 2020 so far? there have been things here and there. >> he said he is thinking about running for president and that if he does decide to run it would be because he thinks he could be a unifying figure. this morning the crowd at the college in new hampshire for the politics and eggs event supposed the start five minutes ago is made up of influential local business leaders and political activists who only heard from two other possible trump challenge gears this year. martin o'malley and senator jeff flake. holder was the first ever african-american attorney general and he was also the first ever attorney general to be held in contempt of congress when republicans got fed up that he wasn't turning over documents tied to the fast and furious investigation. but he helped implement the obama agenda at d.o.j. for six years. he represents a throwback to
7:11 am
the obama era for democrats in a state trying to figure out how progressive they want to be in 2020. >> heather: what cause has he been advocating the last few years. >> pushing a redraw congressional maps. he started this national democratic redistricting committee. it helped get president obama elected twice. they are planning to buy a lot of ads to bring awareness to that cause but these things could also wind up bringing awareness to a candidate, too. heather. >> heather: peter doocy live. >> bill: in new hampshire. crunch time in california before next week's primary. one republicans shaking things up in sacramento. we'll talk to john cox about the campaign and his latest endorsement from the president and there is this today. >> he said upon reviewing it he felt a great injustice had been
7:12 am
done and that using his power he was going to rectify it, sort of clear the slate to be a bigger voice than ever defending the principles that i believe in. >> heather: president trump pardoning conservative filmmaker denish d'souza and looking into doing other things including doug blagojevich. listen to what his wife has to say about comey. >> bill: an exclusive look at revolutionary technology that could save countless american lives on the battlefield. check that out coming up.
7:13 am
7:14 am
7:15 am
7:16 am
>> bill: the president making another high profile pardon. granting a full pardon to den i shall d'souza. he pleaded guilty to illegally using straw donors to contribute to political come -- campaigns. he said this. >> this was a vindictive political hit that was aimed at putting me out of business essentially making -- destroying my credibility. making it impossible for me to make movies, write books. in that sense it failed but it still left a cloud over me. i would be a life long felon. not able to vote and have my full rights. i'm very grateful to president trump for giving me those
7:17 am
rights back. >> bill: the president is considering a pardon for martha stewart who served five months in prison for obstruction of justice and lying to investigators about a stock sale. >> heather: in the meantime the president may commute the sentence of former illinois governor rod blagojevich, the democratic politician slapped with a 14-year prison sentence for attempting to sell obama's former senate seat was the allegation. his time behind bars might be reduced. his wife reacting to the news. listen. >> he was and we are all so grateful the president is thinking of us in this way but it's been such a long road for us and we have been so disappointed so many times before. we know that president trump is a kind man and compassionate and always been kind to my family. he knows how important it is that my husband gets home to be a father to our daughters, that we can't help to be hopeful. >> heather: she went on to say
7:18 am
both robert mueller and james comey perverted the law that landed her husband in jail. joining me now to talk about it matt schlapp, former white house political director for president george w. bush and doug schoen, the former advisor to president bill clinton and fox news contributor. thank you for joining us. before we get into this let's actually bring up what patty blagojevich had to say in terms of mueller and comey. listen. >> the same people that did this to my family, the same people that secretly taped us and twisted the facts and perverted the law that ended up putting my husband in jail, you know, these same people are trying to do the same thing that they did to my husband just on a much larger scale. >> heather: familiar names we keep hearing and they keep coming up over and over again. so in terms of whether or not these people should be pardoned, doug, i'll start with you. what do you think about what the president is doing? he has this power and he can do
7:19 am
it. >> well, i would say a couple of things. first it sends a very loud message to people who are under the gun in the mueller investigation currently going on that the president has an unqualified and absolute pardon power. in terms of rod blagojevich, who i knew and worked for, i think he did commit crimes. he has acknowledged it. and frankly, a commutation i think is in order. denish is a friend of mine pled guilty. i'm glad he will have his voice back. it is not my voice. he acknowledged he made campaign finance violations for which he got a sentence. >> heather: let me get to matt quickly. at the same time he said that he didn't do it. he kept saying he hasn't done it ever since then. in terms of the names let's go back to the names that keep popping up over and over again,
7:20 am
comey prosecuted martha stewart. >> i think presidents have unlimited power to pardon. and presidents have different things that they feel sympathetic about. barack obama pardoned and commuted the sentence of thousands of people who had low-level drug offenses and other folks and he has the right to do that. i believe in second chances. i believe in mercy. and in a lot of these cases people did commit crimes. martha stewart committed a crime but the question is that she is in the winter of her life. if it's okay for the president of the united states to say look, there are other things about your life that are redeeming. you shouldn't have this smudge on your record forever. i think its -- i love the fact that he pardoned jack johnson who had committed the crime of having a white girlfriend as an african boxing legend. he has sympathy for these figures who get prosecutorial
7:21 am
excess partly because of their fame. they might commit crimes but the question is, did the prosecutors go too far. i think what we're seeing over and over again prosecutors tend to go too far and could be true with mueller and if he is sending that message to mueller i agree with that as well. >> heather: do you think this is the case of pardons being used as weapons? >> i think the pardons are being used partially, as matt situation, to send a message. partially because of individual compassion, and partially, as i was suggesting, given what's going on now, the president is making it very clear he is not going to roll over in the mueller investigation. i guess my point of difference with matt is i would like the mueller investigation to play itself out. there are leads still being pursued and then make a judgment. >> i agree with that. >> heather: a lot of money being spent. >> for a law and order president it is really nice now
7:22 am
he realizes how bad this can be. >> heather: thank you for joining us. >> bill: strong jobs report and charles payne will tell you what you need to know coming up next here. the numbers from mr. payne. ♪

>> heather: a first time competitor wins the national spelling bee with this word, listen closely. >> koinoini. >> heather: 18 rounds they went through. he takes home the gold. he is an eighth grader from mckinney, texas, the word is defined as the christian fellowship or body of believers. he gets $40,000, a trophy,
7:26 am
encyclopedias and savings bond. >> bill: i'm a believer in charles payne and he will tell you why in a moment here. fox news alert. u.s. employers adding 223,000 jobs in may. we only expected 190,000. 3.8 for unemployment. 18-year low. he is making money every day is charles payne with me now. how are you, sir? >> i'm doing great and so is the country. >> bill: break down the numbers. to days ago you said we were cooking with gas. >> i said that and pointed out interesting things around this country. one thing i thought was amazing. we've seen employ ears in this country saying we won't drug test people and hire non-violent convicted felons. we're seeing people in this country who thought they would never, never work again now that fast forward to today's number. not only was it a great number but more specifically this is one of the best monthly numbers i've ever seen for black people ever. the unemployment rate for black
7:27 am
people went from 6.6 to 5.9%. the lowest ever. here is the kicker. labor participation 76,000 blacks came into the labor market. every other race actually saw people leave the labor market. absolutely remarkable stuff. good stuff. >> bill: why do you think that? that's quite a statement. a commentary about the economy, social commentary as well, frankly. why do you think that's happening now? what level of confidence do they -- these people coming back to the labor force, what do they see? >> they see a chance to get a job. they see an opportunity to get a job. the hottest area, i've talked about the dirty fingernails things, manufacturing. there is so much jobs in every region of our country manufacturing is on the rise, carpentry, those kind of things. wages are going up. it's a remarkable time.
7:28 am
again, this number was great. to your point, it beat wall street. >> characterize it. is it low interest rates and deregulation and the president talking about it? is it all combined. >> when the president is elected the small business surveys went through the roof that same month. smaller businesses are the engines of economic growth in this country. they have been optimistic from day one. the day after the election and now they are starting to hire and makes it easier to hire people when you have fewer regulations and lower taxes, and it becomes this thing what they call a self-fulfilling prophesy. the federal reserve calls it a cycle. they tried to generate it through printing trillions of dollars. but they printed the money and gave it to banks. this is something more organic. it is infectious. velocity of money.
7:29 am
i'm now working, i'll spend it. other people get a chance to spend it and businesses will have to hire. >> bill: looking at the screen and i see the number 3.8%. you know how long we've been doing this for years. never seen a number that low. >> but april of 2000 the last time it was this low was in the 1960s. so it is really a remarkable number. we're getting close to what they call full employment. and -- i still think there are millions of people who aren't accounted for who left the jobs market a long time ago and gave up. another good highlight on this is long-term unemployment. 26 weeks or longer had the largest decline. over 100,000 people were able to get back into the labor market who were laid off a long time. i was worried about that during the great recess.-- great recession. >> bill: a lot of us like to worry. what do i need to worry about now? what can the throw the train
7:30 am
off the tracks? >> the experts are saying it's too good and create inflation and excess spending and -- it's one of these things where economists are paid to think that way. right now i'm happy for the american public and we have a long runway. not a one-time event. >> bill: let's settle on that. thank you, charles. >> heather: president trump traveling to texas and meeting with the survivors and families of the sante fe school shooting. we'll speak with the texas lieutenant governor dan patrick up next. >> bill: something you haven't seen before. a flying car on the battlefield of war. fox news with an exclusive look at how this could save american lives coming up. >> it is real, it is flying. and we are going to have it here in the united states in the next few years.

>> heather: a fox news alert for you, police confirming the capture of the man suspected of killing a tennessee sheriffs
7:34 am
deputy. the state bureau of investigation tweeting photos of 31-year-old steven joshua wiggins looking muddy. this was after being taken into custody. was not too far from the scene. he is accused of shooting sergeant daniel scott baker during a traffic stop on wednesday. baker, a former marine and 10-year veteran of the force was responding to reports of a suspicious vehicle. the dixon county sheriff insisting that wiggins will face justice. >> it is my prayer to god that our court will be a terror to him on the punishment he receives. >> heather: a woman that police say was in the car is also facing a murder charge in connection to sergeant baker's death. >> if you smuggle illegal aliens across our border we will prosecute you. if you cross the border illegally we will prosecute you and if you make a false
7:35 am
immigration claim, we will prosecute you. the lawlessness has to end. >> bill: homeland security secretary talking about illegal immigration in arizona yesterday during a visit to the southern border. you have president trump meeting with top texas officials and texas lieutenant governor dan patrick is here to talk about this. thank you for coming back to "america's newsroom." come back to nielsen's point there. there has been heated rhetoric on both sides about this government splitting families apart. what's the truth on that? >> well, the truth is, bill, let's look at the whole immigration issue. i did research on this some time ago. we hear the number of 11 million people being in this country illegally. if you go back and do a search you'll see that was reported in 2004 and 2009. there are many more than 11 million people here illegally. we have to secure this border. we have to build the wall, we have to end the lawlessness as she said. bill, in terms of families, we
7:36 am
want to keep families together but that cannot be an excuse to break our laws and in terms of family issues, we do that with child protective services and social services in our country where we find a child in a dangerous situation. so the left is trying to make a bigger issue out of this because they want an open border. we have oh secure the border, bill, that simple. >> bill: you have a problem with the system when for years people can find a way to come to the u.s. and disappear. that's a problem. >> absolutely. and bill, we need legal immigration reform. everyrepublican knows that. we want people to come here legally. i would rather for them to pay the u.s. government a few thousand to come to this country than pay the cartels. the cartels make as much money from smuggling people as they do drugs. no one crosses the border without paying a heavy price. the drug cartels are controlling it on the mexican side. we need a system where people can come here in dignity. not work in the shadows.
7:37 am
learn our culture and language and be proud americans. that's what we need. illegal immigration must end. too many criminals, bill, too many criminals by the hundreds of thousands come into this country every year and in texas i've been with you before and shared the numbers. we've put in jail over 200,000 people here most illegally, criminal aliens came here illegally and charged them with over 600,000 crimes in the last seven years. every sheriff in the country is a border sheriff. >> bill: it can't continue. the best way to figure it out now. >> donald trump is on point. >> bill: he was there yesterday and met with ted cruz and governor abbott. what was his message? >> i had a chance to spend time with him yesterday, a 30-minute conversation for a while. and this president, bill, is the best communicator along with ronald reagan we ever had. you know as an interviewer the best interviewer is someone who

listens to form the next question. and he listened to those people yesterday. it was a private meeting. i was there in the meeting and been there all of two weeks down in sante fe. these are extraordinary people. this was the first time, bill, all these families, the victims were together. the families of those two teachers and eight students. i've gone to the different funerals and visitations but they were all together and i would say they were 90% unanimous in what they asked the president and he sat there and listened. bill, he has an incredible talent that he comes into a room where no one knows him. the president or when i was with him on the campaign trail running for president, the nominee, and he may be a stranger when he walks in. they know him and seen him on television. by the time he leaves, they feel close to him. he knows how to comfort people, he listens and he does this. all these rallies that you all carry on fox, usually before those rallies he often meets with law enforcement or
7:39 am
veterans or victims of violence, he meets with small groups like this and he learns and he loves people. and yesterday he was a great listener. by the time he left that room for a brief moment he relieved some of that pain for a small time. they know he cared, they know he listened and that he will help them. >> bill: come on back. dan patrick, lieutenant governor of texas. >> heather: a self-flying car could soon make its way from signs fiction films to the battlefield. it is being tested in the remote israeli desert but could be produced here soon in the usa. we have a look. >> imagine american soldiers in the mountains of afghanistan pinned down by enemy fire. the terrain too dangerous for a helicopter rescue mission. in the near future thanks to

technology that is transforming flight. >> it is real, it is flying. and we are going to have it here in the united states in the next few years. >> this is it, the flying vehicle that cannot only save american lives on battlefields a world away but also on highways right here at home. >> the concept of the golden hour. in order to maximize survivability in an accident, you need to get to that victim and get that victim evacuated and to medical attention within an hour. >> the idea for a vehicle that can go where helicopters can't was born out of the 2006 israel/hezbollah war. it took 5 1/2 hours to evacuate israeli soldiers. >> ground the air fire and because of the physical limitations of the helicopters's rotor it cannot land in an obstacle rich area. >> it is being tested in israel
7:41 am
with interest and support from the israeli military. the long-term plan is for production to move to the united states and for both pilotless and piloted models to be available for military and civilian emergencies. >> disaster response, nuclear, biological, chemical, decontamination. dirty bomb in a sitting. butting against the wall of a building and rescuing people. this aircraft can do all of that because it doesn't have the overhead rotors. >> they tell us they hope to produce the cormorant here in the u.s. by 2022. >> heather: amazing. we're living in the future, that's for sure. >> bill: interesting stuff. you don't know what they come up next. how tech -- technology is applied to war and our lives. something else. house majority leader kevin mccarthy taking google to task

>> bill: big change in the way for the u.s. coast guard. president trump said to make remarks at the coast guard headquarters. the current commandant retiring today after 41 years of service. that's a great career. the president's remarks will come at the top of the hour and we'll watch them for you right here. >> heather: we're less than a week away from the primary for california's next governor. they advance the top two
7:46 am
finishers regardless of party. with the lieutenant governor as the clear frontrunner a tough battle between former los angeles mayor and businessman john cox. cox is trailing newsome but he landed an endorsement from president trump and john cox joins us with more. good morning again. >> good morning again to you, heather. great to see you again. >> great to see you as well. let's talk about the momentum that's going on and how president trump's endorsement is helping you. >> well, it is a great endorsement and the president is a businessman just like me. business people have made great leaders, and 19 states have republican business people as governors and the reason, heather, is because we get the job done. we don't engage in a lot of partisan bickering.
7:47 am
we try to get results. that's what the president is doing. you probably saw the jobs report this morning, 223,000 jobs created. the president is delivering results. what we haven't gotten in california is results. i think my momentum is because californians are looking for change. they want the state to be affordable. they want this state to be sustainable and they want the opportunity to make a living, to save for retirement, to provide for their kids' education and the democrats have strangled this state and wasted money and taxed us to death. >> heather: let's talk more about that. california tends to be a little different than a lot of other states. they tend to be i think i said earlier diametrically opposed to what president trump supports whether it's sanctuary cities and other immigration policies, healthcare. so in terms of republicans overcoming this democratic hold on california, how realistic do
7:48 am
you think that is? >> very realistic. i talk to working people all across the state, heather. they tell me that their rents are sky high. they are paying over $4 a gallon for gasoline. i'm the leader of the repeal of the gas tax in this state which has driven up the cost of living. that really hits people's pocket books. i think they are finally getting it that we don't want to become the venezuela of america. we don't want government running our lives completely. and you know what? the liberal special interests are very, very afraid of my candidacy. they know -- >> heather: hold that thought. i want to get your thought on this. we said you would respond to it. in terms of the google search we've been talking about.
7:49 am
the first thing that came up was nazism when you do a google search. >> more competition for google. they are the absolute leader almost a monopoly in their field. we need more competition because they need to be watching what they are doing. this is obviously a tactic to try to keep the democrats in power. they've gotten arrogant and i think there is a good reason they have competition. that will make sure that they don't do horrendous things like this. >> heather: the primary coming up on june 5th. good luck to you and we'll be watching the results. >> thank you. appreciate the opportunity. >> bill: interesting time in that state. in the meantime this is also happening in california. what a finish to game one. oh, oh, oh. did you see this? game one is in the books. it is not the way to end for cleveland. we'll tell you about that

>> bill: cleveland fans shaking their heads this morning. last night's loss. the warriors get the win in overtime by 10 after what was a razor close game all night long. a major league mistake by j.r. smith. jared max, how are you? did you stay up until 1:00 a.m. >> i did. just after midnight eastern time is when it ended. >> bill: then you have to be here at 3:00. before we get to the heart of the matter. how good was lebron james. >> i've never seen a better basketball player in my life. watched larry byrd, magic johnson. i thought they were the best. lebron james would beat those guys where he is at now.
7:54 am
51 points last night. most he has ever scored in a playoff game and the first guy to break 50s in a finals game and not be on the winning side. he is the only guy doing it for his team. >> bill: folks are watching in cleveland they don't want to see this. >> it was awful. at the end of the game george hill had the opportunity to give his team the lead. he makes a foul shot and ties the score. the second shot. j.r. smith seems to think the cavaliers are winning the game and seen on camera mouthing to lebron james i thought we were ahead. yet after the game when everybody saw him get his hand stuck in the cookie jar he tried to tell us it wasn't there. listen to this. >> the replay looked like he said to lebron i thought we were ahead. >> i thought we were ahead. i was just handling the ball, no problem. clearly that wasn't the case. >> he made the situation worse. if he just said worst mistake of my career it would be over.
7:55 am
>> the warriors are so good and so fast and they've been there before. really have to be bruised if you are in that cleveland locker room right now. >> you had an opportunity to win the game. the controversial play in the final 40 seconds, lebron james looked like he drew a charge. >> bill: this one? >> looked like lebron drew the charge. they overturned it. durant went to the foul line and tied the score. so many points in a whole basketball game that could make a difference. j.r.'s blunder will be remembered. that's a landmark moment. >> bill: is the nba getting what it wants? >> i would be shocked if golden state didn't win the series. five games but i won't put anything past lebron because you don't know. bill, he is doing things that he makes us all step back and say wow. let's see what he can do.
7:56 am
golden state has too much manpower, steph curry. he led the team with 29 last night. durant had 26. lebron had 11 more points than the rest of his other four starters combined. >> bill: the league needs a great series. they may be on to something. had cleveland won that game last night you would have drawn a lot more interest. >> a lot of people will tune in for game two on sunday. >> heather: i'll tune in and see what lebron is wearing after the game. you don't have the shorts. >> lebron wore a suit and shorts. scored 51. i bet he does it again. >> bill: lebron can do that. thank you. we shall be back in a moment. president trump is now out at the coast guard. all right, let's drop on in when he is live coming up next shortly here. ...nature! sure smells amazing... even in accounts receivable.
