>> kid rock hopes his endorsement can catapult this candidate to victory. >> the next senator from the great state of michigan, john james ♪ these are the days of america ♪ brother, to brother hand in hand. steve: after a long flight, you don't need a necktie. we start with a fox news alert. moments ago the president touched down in joint base andrews in maryland, after that historic summit with north korea's dictator kim jong un. the president is back. ainsley: that's right. he just tweeted as he was landing. he said a long trip but everybody can now feel much safer than the day i took office. there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea. meeting with kim jong un was an interesting and very positive experience. north korea has great potential for the future he says. brian: griff jenkins is live, going to recap all from washington, d.c. unless he refuses. every once in a while he says no.
3:02 am
>> i will comply. good morning, guys. the president traveled the 23.5 hours with two layovers with guam and hawaii. he still found time also to tweet to the american people on the way home saying the world has taken a big step back from potential nuclear catastrophe. no more rocket launches or nuclear testing or research. the hostages are back home with their families. thank you to chairman kim our day today was historic. this one addressing nay sayers, a year ago people were begging for conciliation and peace. please meet, don't go to war. now that we meet and have a great relationship with kim jong un the same haters shout out, you shouldn't meet, don't meet. chairman kim is heading back to north korea to start the denuclearization process virtually immediately. this as secretary of state pompeo has touched down in seoul as we speak. continue beijing working
3:03 am
peace process. gone are the days of politics ending at the water's edge. chuck schumer arguably the most powerful democrat in america has already concluded the historic summit failed to produce anything. >> president trump seems to have given away two or three of the major things that kim jong un wanted. a meeting, the flags next to each other. now no delay of exercises with south korea without getting anything in return. >> the motorcade is in route to the white house. expected to pull into the driveway any moment now. we will bring you those photos. we will find out whether the president is going to get some much needed rest or whether he may take to twitter again to address critics like mr. schumer. steve: you know what? he went on twitter one minute ago, griff, while he is there in the suburban. he says before taking office, people were assuming that we were going to war with north korea. president obama said north korea was our biggest and
3:04 am
most dangerous problem. no longer, sleep well tonight. brian: but, for the most part he thinks we are not going to know anything for about six months. how sincere they are going to go to the next step. how sincere with ambassador bolton and mike pompeo which they will meet as early as next week. kim jong un came back. he said positive things about our president and said he got a lot of concessions. he got the meeting and the end of the military exercises. by the way, the reality to military exercises, there is two a year we did one already. the next one is coming in the fall. should they start backing out of this we ramp up. the word from the pentagon is we haven't stopped preparing no. one has told us about it yet. ainsley: media is having a hay day with this. lindsey graham was on the story last night with martha. he talked about having a phone call with the president from air force one after that meeting right there with kim jong un. and this is what he says. >> i think it's a good first step. he felt good about it he said he had a good meeting with kim jong un.
3:05 am
and what really struck me. he said, listen, this has got to come to an end. we can't live with this kind of threat. he has to give up his nuclear program. a war would be devastating. i don't want to go down that roovmentd he felt good about the initial meeting. we have a long way to go. what struck me most is how much the president appreciated how devastating a war would be but it would be even more devastating to walk away from this nuclear threat. he is going to end it on his watch is what he told me. steve: lindsey graham is exactly right. it's a good first step. the president of the united states himself said, you kn it's a good first meeting. i may stand before new six months and say i was wrong. nonetheless, it's a step in the right direction away from atomic war. mainstream media, a lot of people's hair is on fire. watch. >> after all the pomp and circumstance what comes next? how does the u.s. hold north korea to its commitment, to denuclearize after its
3:06 am
broken nuclear promises in the past? >> how county u.s. be sure? a key missing ingredient no requirement that kim jong un disclose how many weapons he has or where they are hidden. >> to believe that kim jong un is going to give away his nuclear arsenal, which really gives him the power, i think we went too far and, perhaps. >> nothing has really happened yet. >> can we take kim jong un at his word and can we take the guy in the white house at his word? >> are we going ahead with just some hopeful, wishful thought? and i find that incredibly worrying, incredibly depress depressing. ainsley: some of the points are true. can we trust this guy we saw what he did to otto warmbier some of the concerns are valid. this is a great first step. brian: the ambassador of south korea until us his nomination got derailed my
3:07 am
sense a lot more going into the meeting in terms of specifics, including a declaration of nuclear assets. some reference to a time line. so far we haven't gotten those things yet. but, hasn't stopped marco rubio from pointing out the hypocrisy in the media. he said the president's meeting with #kim jong un exposed incredible hypocrisy of many in the media. when obama did these things he is described as enlighten. when trump does it he is reckless and foolish. one year ago they attacked trump for leading us towards war now attack for being too quick for peace. ainsley, when he went to cuba, no one even met him on the tarmac. he was by himself. steve: much different reception. and there you see some of the images from back in 2016. meanwhile, rush limbaugh says the political left, mainstream media caught off guard. >> expert after expert condemning it ridiculing it.
3:08 am
no chance, no way. trump doesn't know what is he doing. we're on the verge of a potential disaster. i think they were totally caught off guard. what was really going on is they were hoping it was going to blow up. they wanted it to blow up. they wanted kim jong un to humiliate and embarrass trump. >> so when that didn't happen, i think that they were caught completely flat-footed with the successful of this meeting. especially the signing of the declaration which reiterated the north's pledge to get rid of nukes. brian: kind of interesting, too. among the people complimentary to the president bernie sanders. he said this meeting is a positive step to diest can a rating tensions and addressing the threat of north korea's weapons. it was brought out too to ainsley's point earlier. if president obama came out and said kim jong un if he was in power then praised
3:09 am
the dictator as a very talented man, very worthy, and smart negotiator, a lot of people would have been critical to him. that did come out over the hour plus press conference the president had. ainsley: if he denukes north korea and that peninsula, it prevents a potential war down the road. so the media has to decide what they want their narrative to be. they can't say no war and then criticize him for getting rid of the nuclear weapons. steve: three presidents could have done this and three presidents did didn't. donald trump has done it and he has taken a step in the right direction most people feel. meanwhile a problem at the department of justice, there is a showdown between congress. they want some of the documents to figure out what is going on behind the scenes and the department of justice simply will not reveal them. and, in fact, there is a story out that apparently before the inspector general's report, which is coming out tomorrow on donald trump's birthday, apparently the deputy attorney general was angry
3:10 am
that the requests from congress were that they respond in writing. because they didn't want it in writing, essentially, with the paper trail. so, all of congress' requests were on paper, and they didn't like that. and apparently there was a blowup where reportedly rod rosenstein threatened to subpoena members of the intel committee to get their records and they felt it was simply intimidation. brian: so the deputy attorney general was threatening the intelligence committee for investigating -- just asking for paperwork. said you keep asking for this in writing, i'm going to ask -- i'm going to subpoena all your records and all your email. can you say they are not getting along? that's safe to assume. that's this is the same party a republic republican appointed deputy and republican controlled house can't see eye to eye? ainsley: the doj are denying this and they haven't commented on it. steve: they say it didn't happen quite like that. you would think as an
3:11 am
attorney you would want requests on paper. you have a paper trail. they don't like it. it's washington. and the so mark meadows and jim jordan it sounds likes a early as today are going to file a resolution to compel him to turn over some of the documents. they were on last night with laura. look. >> i'm here to tell you, we are fed up with it. we have been working on a resolution. it's all about compelling doj to turn over documents so that we can do proper oversight. if they have nothing to hide, turn over the documents. brian: and the redaction. also, what really bothers me too is what ron johnson wrote. i am finding out you are redacting things just for no reason or to make the story we are trying to put togeer, the puzzle we are trying to reconfigure impossible about peter strzok and other people. when they finally unredact it to a degree they say what are you doing? steve: they are taking out embarrassing stuff for the department of justice. brian: incredible. steve: we did hear from
3:12 am
catherine herridge. ainsley: she said the deputy attorney general after being threatened with contempt as an american citizen with the offense of contempt of congress he would have the right to defend himself, including requesting production of relevant emails and text messages and calling them as witnesses to demonstrate that their allegations are false. steve: one of the people that told catherine in her report having the nation's number two law enforcement officer threaten to subpoena your calls and email was down right chilling. brian: meanwhile, always great to see jillian. great job this morning as you handle the tarmac duty air force one landing. >> good morning to you guys and to you at home as well. get you caught up. we have a fox news alert. breaking news. police now believe they have the person responsible for shooting an officer outside pittsburgh. another officer's head was grazed by a bullet. they are both expected to be okay. a suspect opening fire as police responded to a call sparking a manhunt overnight. now, we're also hearing the suspect may have taken hostages. no word yet on the motive.
3:13 am

3:14 am
campaign trail. only problem it was rv tour. ♪ come on and take a free ride ♪ come on and by my side 10 miles on every dollar they spend at thousands of hotels. all you have to do is pay with this... at hotels.com/venture. 10 miles per dollar? that is incredible. brrrrr. i have the chills. because you're so excited? because ice is cold. and because of all those miles. obviously. what's in your wallet? i'm not sure. what's in your wallet? and with twice the detail of other tests... ...it can show dad where he's from ...and strengthen the bonds you share. give dad ancestrydna for just $69- our lowest father's day price ever.
3:15 am
for just $69- a trip back to the dthe doctor's office, mean just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. neulasta helps reduce infection risk
3:16 am
by boosting your white blood cell count, which strengthens your immune system. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro.

the first survivor of ais out there.sease and the alzheimer's association is going to make it happen. but we won't get there without you. visit alz.org to join the fight. brian: it's the start of a deal with north korea. president trump's work with north korean's dictator kim jong un has just begun. what are the next steps in
3:18 am
diplomacy and are the critics right to sound off. here to discuss is senator cory gardner republican from colorado. senator, your thoughts on first blush, the key term, working toward -- both sides, north korea and the u.s. agree to work towards deplete denuclearization is that enough for you? >> this denuclearization was the goal of the summit. getting president trump and kim jong un to agree on denuclearization had to be the goal. this is the first time we have seen kim tell a united states president in person that he supported denuclearization. we have a ways to go. but that's historic achievement. brian: some people are upset at some of the words the president used. he said one point honorable. he said he was smart. great honor, special bond. excellent relationship. some are uncomfortable with that language. are you? >> two years ago people were complaining that the president's language was too nice, too harsh, too nice. here is what we know, at the
3:19 am
end of that theend of the obama administration we were at the brink of war because had a fully program with a dozens and dozens of nuclear weapons that might reach the homeland of the united states. what we know now is we have backed away from that precipice of war. we have a ways to go. we should remain cautious in terms of the ability of kim to actually keep his word because we know there is a family tradition of breaking their word. this is a 34-year-old leader who has 40 years to run. does he really want to lead a hermit kingdom or is he actually looking at something different? we will never know unless we pursue this path of diplomacy. no higher everything of diplomacy than the president of the united states, and that's exactly what we saw in singapore. brian: praise is coming from the japanese leader and south korean leader, arguably the most effective. next, the thing most controversial to some is the second military exercise of the year so far is on hold or out. does that bother you? are you okay with that? >> yeah, you know, i have
3:20 am
actually been in south korea in cp tango, commands post tango during freedom guardian one of the major exercises. i think the exercises are important. i would like to see them continue. but, perhaps, the president believes this is a way can he move forward with president kim. the bottom line is, this we will know that we have an agreement that is working with and toward denuclearization. we are going to know that soon. we have more follow-up meetings. this will be tested regularly. it should be tested. the resolve of kim should be tested regularrably on this and the president made it clear this will continue if there's not the progress made towards denuclearization that was promised. the pa these are important steps we have got to learn more as we move towards denuclearization. brian: senator great to see you especially this early. >> thanks, brian. brian: if sanctioned are going to be loosened that
3:21 am
will be key. the president doesn't want to do it. support for the death penalty now on the rise believe it or not. what is behind that spike. what does it tell us about our country. remember when facebook called diamond and silk dangerous? >> (butch barks at man) butch is like an old soul that just hates my guts. (laughs) (vo) you can never have too many faithful companions. that's why i got a subaru crosstrek. love is out there. find it in a subaru crosstrek.

steve: it is 6:24 in new york city on this june the 13th. here are headlines for you. the department of justice now weighing legal options after a federal judge has cleared the way for at and t's 85 billion-dollar takeover of time warner. the court ruling by the judge yesterday against the government's argument that the merger could stifle competition resulting in higher prices for people who use their products. and mark zuckerberg now admits facebook messed up by calling social media stars
3:25 am
diamond and silk dangerous. in a newly released response to a senate committee, the ceo says in part, quote: we mishandled communication with diamond and silk for months. the message they received that characterized their page as dangerous was incorrect. the duo avid trump supporters claiming they were censored. ainsley? ainsley: thank you so much, steve. support for the death penalty is rising among americans. according to a new poll, 54% of adults in the united states this year are now in favor of the death penalty while 39% opposed it in 2016. 49% favored and 42% oppose. so why the spike and what does this tell you? here to debate this is attorney elliott who served as a prosecutor in the manhattan d.a.'s office of homicides and major cases and we have keisha heaven a defense attorney and former prosecutor. thanks, guys, for being with us. for, against, and why? >> for. thousands of years across
3:26 am
multiple cultures one of the reasons we have a criminal justice system is to incapacitate those who have demonstrated through heir their actions they pose a danger to others. there is no more revocable way of incapacitating a dangerous individual than through imposition of the death penalty. ainsley: becoming a parent changes how you feels changes if this happened to my child. >> of course the horrific child we read about. ainsley: kish sharks for, against or why. >> against it for spiritual and constitutional reasons. i don't feel the human being has the right to take the right of another human being. a lot of people against abortion but for the death penalty. it's another thing taking af a lot. also find it's being applied unfairly and unjustly amongst different races, different classes. not everyone can afford a good attorney. and also from statis particulars that i have seen, it does not necessarily deter criminals from committing these heinous crimes. ainsley: why do you think that the statistics have
3:27 am
changed? why do you think more americans now are in support of this, elliott? >> it tends to track with the crime rates. ticked um in recent years. when people read about 10,000 ms-13 gang members and connect it to ms-13. ainsley: mutilating teenagers. >> pretty horrific crimes. law enforcement is holding back or politicians are forcing law enforcement to hold back that makes people rebel and want to see more aggressive action. what else perceived as more aggressive than the imposition of death penalty. ainsley: why do you think the numbers have gone up. >> i feel our country has been so divided politically right now. a lot of compassion has been absent in my opinion. i agree that a person who commits a crime murdered someone, raped someone should be punished. i think the death penalty is actually giving them a break. like they should suffer and sit in prison. so i think a lot of people are just going, you know, with hard on crime, prosecute and kill them. instead of saying you know what? let them suffer. let the victims see or the
3:28 am
victim's family members see them suffer in prison instead of putting them to death and that it. ainsley: if people are put to death, elliott. i don't know if you are familiar with the innocent project. proven guilty of their crime and then later science disproved that. we need hard clear evidence to make sure these people did the crime. >> a lot of those exonerations happened alluded to advanced technology d.n.a. that same technology can make sure convictions going forward are more integrity. use d.n.a. to more definitively connect the guilty parties to the crimes. two sides to that crime. sure, we have had high pro-full-time exxonnerations. convicting the right people and imposing the death people on people truly guilty. >> it also goes to get legal representation. someone who may not be able to afford a private attorney and has a public defender who is overworked. they may not push for we
3:29 am
need more evidence. and a lot of times the demographics has a role in it as well. you know, some states are more conservative. they are more like live to prosecute certain individuals. so, i think all that goes into whether the person is going to get the hardest or strongest defense as possible. ainsley: thanks so much for being with us. let us know what you think about it. very interesting topic. send emails to us and we'll read them in the show. ainsley: democrats calling on hollywood to help them win the mid terms. >> yes, i have thought an awful lot about blowing up the white house. >> i'm going to say one thing, [bleep] trump. ainsley: well, does this prove that they're out of touch with real americans? plus it, walls supposed to be an rv tour among the people in the midwest. >> so why was senator claire mccaskill living up on a private plane instead? we'll tell you about that story. first, happy birthday to mary-kate and ashley olson

3:34 am
democratic higher ups think they want to tap into some of that promotion and marketing? steve: they do indeed. there is an item in politico who talks about how the dnc has been meeting with various writers and actors and producers trying to get holiday help them with messaging not only for the mid terms and the presidential but also to turn out the vote. they are trying to find some young actors and celebrities who will tape themselves going in to register to vote and things like that. when you look at the messages and little montage summarized effectively. so crazy points of view that have been out there. keep in mind after robert deniro said that about the tonies a couple nights ago. those people in attendance gave him a standing ovation for close to a minute. ainsley: talk about hypocrisy. what if conservatives did this? what if conservatives had said that about president obama. it's just distasteful. it's angry and mean, mean-spirited. you can disagree you don't have to say things like that so far. brian: good that the president was giving robert
3:35 am
deniro the m&m treatment of ignoring him and then last night these tweets came rolling in from air force one. steve: good. brian: robert de deniro a very low iq received too many boxes to the head. i watched him last night and truly believe he may be punch-drunk. i guess he doesn't believe the economy is the best it's ever been. wake up, punchy, and that will be 45% of the country that supports president trump will be calling robert deniro as he walks the street of new york. ainsley: don't you want your message heard? his message was bleeped the entire thing. you didn't know what the message was if you were watching it. brian: what the wisdom of tapping into that. one thing with al gore and hillary clinton is a dozen celebrities. they show up, the crowds come out. jay-z, beyonce, they come out. but doesn't convert to votes. ainsley: you hear people in the middle of the country, they say we don't care about these celebrities. they don't relate to us. let them all come out

steve: some critics on the political left are running out of excuses for first economic policies have caused a boom rather than the bust that they predicted. turns out, the american people are feel confident about the economy under president trump 59% optimistic. here for the international trade commission and international business professor at the university of maryland in college park maryland peter mor more more mo. economists calling for a rate of growth for the united states 4% for the second quarter of 2018. for those on the political left who said it would be a big mistake to elect president trump, they don't have a little egg on their face. they have a whole omelet. >> absolutely. it's really not putting america first. it's putting americans first. getting the government out of the way so we can solve our own problems.
3:47 am
you know, people focus a lot about the things we need to fix at home. lord knows we have got to fix a lot of things. but do you realize in the rankings of global compitiveness the united states comes out now with donald trump in office first among all the industrialized countries and well ahead of china. the world economic forum, look at their rankings, simply getting the government out of the way instead of running a french state as barack obama did is the key to success. steve: peter, what's going on. a lot of people have credited, a lot of republicans have credited the tax cuts to help people feel like they have more money in their pocket. but then, president trump has made it very clear for every new law passed we are going to cut -- or regulations that is. i think rather than for every regulation passed they are going to cut two. i think he is cutting something like 2 it 8 or 29. >> the deregulatory boon has been very helpful. especially in the oil patch. have you noticed a very
3:48 am
steady growth in manufacturing jobs? steve: right. >> really hard for folks to focus on it because it's under the radar. each of these new factories and the expassengers of factories heavily regulated by the obama administration. you know, it walls hard to move a machine from one side of the shop to the other without either negotiating with a union or negotiating with barack obama or barack obama calling up the union and telling them to go in there and negotiate. steve: right. >> now can you get stuff done reasonably. not recklessly but reasonably. everybody wants a safe workplace. the safe workplace in barack obama's world was no work place. we have opened up the factories again. isn't that great news? steve: it is especially for the americans who need jobs. right now we have more job openings than americans who are looking for work. peter, you mentioned the word reckless a moment ago. i was watching tv earlier in the week a lot of commentators were saying that the president was reckless in leaving the g-7 summit up in quebec not
3:49 am
signing ton their communique. you say the president was right to walk away. >> my feeling is the communique simply ran counter to what our fundamental objects tifs are that is to reform the global trading system so the american worker gets a fair deal. the europeans would like to bog us down in negotiations about how to reform the system. what i want is the europeans to reform. they are blocking our exports. they put on higher tariffs. it's high time the gerns re called to account for running big trade surpluses that victimize american workers and frankly victimize workers in places like italy, greece, spain, portugal, france and so forth. steve: shouldn't surprise what donald trump did. when he was running for president he said when i'm in the room with those people i'm going to make it clear america first. >> yeah. steve: he did and here we are. peter, thank you for joining us live. >> take police sergeant will run

hey, hey, hey. come here. you're okay. you're okay. ainsley: incredible moment as you can see caught on camera. that hero cop saves a
3:54 am
toddler's life as is he wandering into oncoming traffic. brian: this illinois officer is a hometown hero no doubt. sergeant anthony has been on the job 25 years been on patrol 12. and congratulations, officers. i cannot imagine what was going through your mind as you saw this unfold. can you bring us back to that day as you are driving on that road and see that child? >> sure. it's the middle of the day on route 59, which is a heavily trafficked area in our town main thorough fare. just conducting normal traffic enforcement. looking for distracted drivers, et cetera. something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye off to the right. initially i thought it was an animal. possibly a small dog about to run into traffic. and as i got a little bit closer i noticed there was a young toddler, maybe one or two years of age. ainsley: my word. how did the toddler get away from. he was with his mom i understand and flipped out and she felt horrible about
3:55 am
it tell us that story how did he get out. >> apparently watching the child. in the home with the child. in a fleeting moment the child just ran out of the house. they lived within a couple blocks of where we ultimately came to a stop with that child. and she ran to the scene. she ran outside the house looking for her child. she saw the police lights on and figured it must be related to her child. and she was just running towards us and overwhelmed with emotion. steve: sergeant, when we look at the video, it gives you goose bumps because that kid was so close to getting run over by all that traffic. >> yes. brian: as an officer, what is the procedure i understood you got as close as you could you blocked the car and blocked that lane and got physically out of the car because i know if you are about to go into a crime, you know, have you certain type of adrenaline. is it a different type of adrenaline when you are going to save somebody? >>
3:56 am
>> this situation was very fluid. there were obviously a lot of concerns that we h my goal initially was blocking that lane of traffic, activating my emergency lights. getting out of the squad car and trying to corral that kid. if you look at the video at one moment he looks like is he about to make a left where all the traffic was going. once i saw that that obviously raised that sense of urgency even more and when i'm shouting for the kid, hey, hey, stop. at that point he actually runs further away to a full sprint. steve: sure. ainsley: time is of the essence here you saved that child's life. the future of that child is completely different than it could have been. i'm sure the mother was panicked when she saw the blue lights. probably so relieved when she sees the child alive and in your arms. thank you for what you do, you are a hero. >> i appreciate that. steve: we know your town gave you a certificate of recognition as well. thank you for joining us live to tell us your story. >> thank you. ainsley: thank you for all that you do. saving lives.
3:57 am
steve: no kidding. brian: father of two 14-year-old twins so he definitely can understand. meanwhile this. ainsley: president trump back in washington after summit in singapore. he is also tweeting about north korea. that's next.

4:02 am
revenue we gained. the mls is now thriving, fastest growing in the world. after getting screwed out of cutter, screwed by moscow because we wouldn't cheat and pay off fifa officials. blow up fifa, reconfigure and believe it or not morocco was the only contend tore stop us. so this is huge news. steve: why would they. brian: world's biggest sport and biggest tournament comes to north america. steve: now americans have got to fall in love with soccer. have you got 8 years. why would they call it the nafta world cup if there is no nafta? because right now it looks like it's going t there's not gg to be nafta. brian: my story. we have plenty of stadiums. we don't have to do any corrupt build go ahead they are doing in moscow. 500 percent over budget. ainsley: where would the game be. brian: televised by fox because we have the rights. ainsley: where would the game be. brian: in the u.s. you know it's going to be in los angeles or new york or
4:03 am
chicago. steve: moves around. brian: nonstop. this country through this party in 1994 when we weren't even thinking about soccer. ainsley: congratulations, i'm glad they plan that far out. steve: they need to build stuff and pay off politicians historically. brian: hopefully not. our fbi blew this up and they thought they were going to be back at us by not giving utes the world cup. steve: you knew so much now about soccer. brian: steve doesn't want to know. steve: i was a soccer coach many years i retired. we have a fox news alert. president trump back at the white house after a wind chill wind summit. remember, it started in canada that didn't go so for the rest of the world. went okay for him. look, i have got to walk out. we are talking america first and went over to singapore. and they signed that agreement to denuke the korean peninsula, and it sounds like the sanctions are going to stay in place until mr. kim can prove that he has done just that.
4:04 am
ainsley: there he is. no tie. hopefully he got some sleep. he said in the presser yesterday he had gone 25 hours without sleep. he did have 20-plus hour plane flight. hopefully he got sleep. is he tweeting this morning just landed a long trip. everybody can now feel much safer than the day i took office. there is no long ear nuclear threat from north korea, meeting with kim jong un was an interesting and very positive experience. north korea has great potential for the future. brian: what is interesting the north korea newspaper has covered it this way and obviously looked at their leader. they knew once he left they announced when he left and where he was going. korean state news eminent domain reporting president trump and kim met agreed to adopt a step-by-step approach to denuclearizing the country. north korea government told the north koreans they are going to denuclearize. i think that's important. steve: absolutely. the president also tweeted before taking office people were assuming that they were going to war with north korea. president obama said that
4:05 am
north korea was our biggest and most dangerous problem. no longer. sleep well tonight. he also tweeted this out. and this is big. the world has taken a big step back from potential nuclear catastrophe. no more rocket launches. nuclear testing or researches, the pose hajjs are back home with their families. thank you to chairman kim our day together was historic. ainsley: think about that how far we have come. three hostages backs home safely they are getting rid of missiles and testing sites. saying they are going to denuke. if they did not denuke that could lead to a war. many lives have been saved if we don't have to go to war. brian: four elements in it a lot of people expected more it is just the start. a lot of people are saying wow, i'm so disappointed. other people are high fiving. i think the best or the worst is yet to come. all come out in six months. steve: good first step. brian: senator cory gardner joifnsd us last hour. is he on the foreign relations committee. he talked to the president.
4:06 am
here's what he said what he knows and what he thinks will happen. >> the first time we have seen kim tell a united states president in person that he supported denuclearization. we have a ways to go. but that's a historic achievement. the bottom line is this: we will know that we have an agreement that is working with and towards diewkdz. we are going to know that soon. we have more follow-up meetings. this will be tested. the president made this clear this will continue if there is not the pro-progress made towards denuclearization that was promised. steve: a lot of details flushing out in the days and weeks and months ahead but it is a good first step. let's talk little bit about this. you know that congress has oversight over the executive branch. right? they have been try for a very long time to get documents involving the mueller investigation. a number of months ago, back in january, i understand, there are a couple of committees, in particular the intel committee up on capitol hill, and they asked the deputy attorney general
4:07 am
to go ahead and provide some documents that they need. and they wanted to establish a paper trail. so we're going to request these in paper on paper so that there's a record. well then he came back, rod rosenstein, and he was angry that they had sent requests for documents in writing. and then he was critical of the request to then have the department of justice and the fbi respond in writing as well that turned out in the estimation of a couple of people who were in the room sounded like he intimidating these congressional staffers, threatening them with subpoenaing their records and their phones just to push themack. ainsley: they are saying we want to tell the american pe what's really happening in this russia investigation. we want oversight. we want to see what's happening. give us those documents. give us those records. if you north trying to hide anything you won't care. you will give them over to us. according to people in the room on this committee, they said rosenstein came and threatened them and said you want these records, then i
4:08 am
want to see all your phone records and i will subpoena them. steve: doj said that didn't happen. he was just protecting himself if he was going to be held in contempt of congress. brian: alan dershowitz weighed in on the legality of this so-called intimidation. >> this is a classic dispute between separation of powers. the legislature has the power, obviously, to oversee and investigate the executive branch. and a member of the executive branch, which is what rod rosenstein is, shouldn't be able to bully the legislative branch. he should be transparent. he should turn over the documents. he should be cooperative and congress should be cooperative. the executive branch. you know, we have so much dispute today, partisan dispute. legislature and executive branch. all republicans. they shouldn't be fighting with each other. ainsley: doj says no one in the room was ever threatened with a criminal investigation. this information is false and we have the right to defend ourselves.
4:09 am
steve: mark meadows and jim jordan were on with laura they said they have a resolution coming out very promently, probably today, compelling the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein to provide these documents that they say they are entitled to because congress has oversight over the department of justice. brian: going to be interesting on thursday because rod rosenstein will be briefing the president on the ig report, which is 500 pages long to find out and give the president a concrete idea of what the ig report says about what was the -- what was done and not done in the hillary clinton email investigation. ainsley: all right. brian: that should be interesting to read what the president tweets after that is fascinating. steve: it's the president's birthday tomorrow. brian: that's what he wants. ainsley: andrew mccabe involved in. this is he now suing the doj and fbi. you remember him. a few days away from retirement and he got fired because he was leaking information to the press and then lying about it to investigators to the intel committee and lied several times. fired didn't get his
4:10 am
retirement. brian: fascinating to see how andy mccabe ends up going after james comey because they both can't be telling the truth. is he actually having his legal team sue. this is fascinating. because one point he was all focused on the president. now he realizes his problems are much deeper. ainsley: he says i want files. i want the files connected to. this. steve: i want to seat inspector general manual on how to discipline people who are in big trouble because right now the department of justice is not providing that to mr. mccabe who used to be part of the department of justice ironically. ultimately, mccabe's lawyers say they are just trying to clear his name. stay tuned for that. ainsley: i think they are trying to get his retirement money, too. brian: somebody's name who is always clear jillian mele. jillian: exactly. brian: background check crystal clear. fox news alert now. police believe they have the person responsible for shooting an officer outside pittsburgh. one of the officers was hit in the arm and bullet-proof vest. the other suffered a head

4:17 am
violence that says "the washington post." according to the doj there is 10,000 ms-13 gang members in the country. including 3,000 in the d.c. metro area alone. what can local law enforcement do about it. here to give us his take is jeff jenkins sheriff of the neighboring county in maryland. sheriff, how did we get here? >> we have gotten here, brian, from years of not doing anything, years of knowing this problem was coming at us and now we're stuck with the problems of ms-13 in our neighborhoods, our communities, our schools. they brutalize, intimidate, torture. we have got to find a way to clean this up. brian: some of these so-called more affluent districts are complaining that ms-13 is bleeding into theirs. so they're putting these kids into working class schools that often are underfinanced. but they are not staying there. >> no. they are not. they are infiltrating other schools, other communities. again, teachers are afraid to teach. our students and children
4:18 am
shouldn't be afraid to go to school to learn that should be a safe place. feeling impact of years of gang infiltration and get worse until we do something. brian: virginia, long island and boston. when they flood across the border unaccompanied minors picked up under the daca provision and scattered in these communities but not to rich schools. you have schools that are struggling and they make these classes which are already too big even more unwe wouldy and they don't even speak english so they need even more support. >> that's right, brian. and, listen, prince george's county, montgomery county, this part of maryland now in to frederick was targeted area for relocation for some reason. we know the ms-13 population in this part of maryland that i'm talking about is well over 5,000. brian: so teachers in some cases afraid to teach. kids afraid to go to school? >> very much. so i can tell you in my jurisdiction a couple years ago we had a problem in one of our high schools where ms-13 owned the second floor. that was their touch.
4:19 am
18th street turf on the first floor there were fights every day there was constant problems in the school. and, again, teachers can't do their job so they can't learn. brian: when a kid comes across refugee but has neck tattoos that might be the first clue. >> that is a clue. brian: nearly a dozen parents told the post they were worried about gang activity at their school happens to be 10 miles from the white house. >> how can it be anywhere in the united states, brian? how could we have let this happen? brian: how could it have happened again? what have we done to change things. >> we haven't done enough yet. what we need is a push from this administration from the justice department to declare this organization a terrorist organization and clean them up, get them out of here and get the o of this country. ian: what kind of support are you asking? do you need m? do you need people? >> we need a declaration from the white house from president trump from the department of justice to allow local law enforcement to be effective, get in there and clean these pockets of crime out. brian: you don't have to dig

themselves. kid rock is a patriot who loves this nation and who is serving in his own way. and i spoke the first time about how when i was deploying to iraq the first time, in november 2007, this was when his song all summer long came out. and while i was fighting for iraqi freedom, he was raising morale among the troops. so, just excited to get the momentum. and if you want to seat rally. go to john james for senate.com and we'll have a post for you. steve: that's right. he was watching this program. saw you on tv. reached out to us and our producers and we were able to give him the information on how to get ahold of you. here's the thing. i understand last night at this event, he actually apologized because kid rock said i had this promotional stunt last year and people thought i was really serious for running for senate. i apologize if i let any of my supporters down. >> well, i will tell you what this just shows you where kid rock's heart is. it's not about him.
4:27 am
it's never been about him it's been about using his platform to be a blessing to others. whether it's raising morale or awareness in getting this. this is quite frankly something that got out of his control. when people hear about somebody who is not inoculated by the liberal fake news somebody who is see above all the crap. he is one of those entertainers who is spouting off the progressive nonsense that's tearing our country apart. is he willing to think for himself. he understands we are independent thinkers. sometimes people get excite president that and carried away. he too close to call responsibility for his part and apologized and continued to endorse my campaign. steve: absolutely. he is not one to throw his support behind a bunch of candidates. tell us a little bit about your personal story. tell us about your military service and your family business. >> sure. well, i graduated from west
4:28 am
point in 2004. i became a ranger qualified apache pilot and flew 750 hours combat in operation iraqi freedom. i came back because i was shocked not only by what i saw in combat but during the great recession what i was seeing piped back to me on the armed forces network, areas of pontiac, detroit, benton harbor some areas of my beoff loved stateooks worse than the combat zone i was flying. in after years and years of strule too many people did not have the access to economic opportunity. i came back to join the family business, automotive supplier in detroit and able to help grow the company to 137 million and added 100 jobs in michigan east of the mississippi. i'm only the only conservative in this race endorsed by john bolton, marcmarco rubio and now kid rock. i have the understanding national security and critical facing this nation. i have done it of about.

seattle city council is going to tell homeless people dying on the street that the pain of jeff bezos is greater than your pain. >> i want seattle to be a vibrant, beautiful city just like everyone else. this head tax is not the right answer. taxing businesses, businesses that have thin margins that are not amazon will impact prices, impact jobs. ainsley: in fiery seattle council meeting seattle repeals amazon in order to help the homeless. brian: stuart varney is here host of varney and network. how significant is this? >> receipt jection of this tax is very significant there is a message here for west coast democrats. if you tax workers, jobs, and employers will leave. if you raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, then
4:34 am
jobs will leave town. that's what's happening up and down the west coast. higher taxes on employers. higher minimum wage that the employers have to pay. in seattle, that is the classic example. seattle on may the 14th, seattle city council unanimously voted for $275 per worker tax per year on big businesses in the city. they were trying to raise money to build affordable housing. on june the 12th, less than a month later, the city council voted to repeal that tax. amazon and other big employers have said you do that, we leave. and they can't handle that kind of thing. steve: it was a stupid thing to do in the first place where they didn't understand the needs of big business and it's kind of like hey, seattle, we can go some place else. you want had a head tax, fine, you will lose thousands of people from amazon if you do it? >> deliberately punitive.
4:35 am
city council is run by far left. they wanted to punish business. it was a punitive tax. and finally employers said led by amazon and this is unusual for amazon going very public. don't do that we leave. don't do that they have 45,000 people. ainsley: what does it say in washington state in seattle is doing. this liberal state they would have voted in favor of this. when they don't, what does that tell you about the liberal left? >> listen up. >> it tells you that the left does not like business and blames business for the homelessness problem up and down the west coast. wait a second, there is a message here for other cities as arica which are trying to attract amazon and second headquarters. amazon is not going to move to a city which is likely to impose a tax on them just for moving there. brian: just because jeff amazon is loaded doesn't

4:37 am
would go on forever. don't expect this to happen in any time in the next decade, hrble we say. brian: i challenge you to bring up the name trotsky on any other show today. he got an ax in the head. that's how he died. >> sat upon by stalin's assassins in mexico city. brian: stalin holds a grudge. i think it's interesting you brought of trotski. >> prominent member of the seattle city council. her idea to punish amazon. ainsley: could you imagine if it split into three. new elections. steve: a new flag. >> four more senators that would be interesting. steve: 52 states. >> would they be all democrats, probably not. in california right now, uniformly democrat. but if it splits this three might not so. brian: don't be surprised in

4:46 am
of trade deficits. they don't take our farm products, many of them. it's very unfair to our farmers and very unfair to the people of our country, the people, the farmers. ainsley: dairy farmer for nearly four decades, he owns south mountain creamery, which is located in maryland and he joins us now. thank you so much, randy, for joining us. >> thank you for having me. ainsley: you are welcome. as a dairy farmer, were you please with the president's message to canada to justin trudeau and putting tariffs on canada? >> certainly was, yes. ainsley: tell me why. >> canada has a system where you buy -- produce milk in canada you have to buy a base and then you produce milk on that. they are trying to keep their milk supply, you know, in check so they can -- dairy farmers up there can make good money. but if they have the extra
4:47 am
products, they send them into this country and we accept them with pretty much nothing attached to it. where in this country we are supposedly overproducing milk all the time which i'm not sure i believe. but most of that milk they say is dumped they really take that fat off of it first, the fat is worth a lot of money. one of the heavier tariffs to go back into canada is butter if you can get it in there. ainsley: how is this going to affect your life. >> it's a start. dairy farming is not easy business to be. in dairy farl farmers are falling over. many reasons. dairy products coming in from other country. if we have too much why would we bring anything in? we ought to be like canada and not bring anything in. i understand the trade have you got to keep things moving.
4:48 am
and i don't know what the outcome or the answer is for dairy farmers. i'm not sure the program that the government set up right now that is supposed to pay us a little bit money to try to make it better profitable for us. i'm not sure that would work. ainsley: i know you said american dairy farmers are in dryer straits and american farmers are doing this trying to make a living and put food on the table for their families. are you happy for the president at least standing up for the american worker and say hey i'm putting america first? because he has been critical for other administrations for going on apology tours and doing what's best for this country and this president says i want to put america first and put families like you first. >> i agree with everything he is trying to do. i think he is really on the right track. i guess time will tell. i don't think it's going to hurt anything. i'm not worried about it. i think being a businessman like he is, he understands what we're going through a
4:49 am
little bit but farming is different. farm something something that this country ought to be concerned about because if people like me that are willing to work 16, 20 hours a week, seven days a week can't do this anymore for a lot of the different reasons and big corporations take over, people are going to start paying more for their food. in the united states we pay like 7% of our income to food. and i think the closest country to that is twice that much. i mean some people paying 50% for their food. if they had to pay me wages like you work for big corporations and pay me double time and all of that kind of stuff for everything over 40, you can see how expensive it would get. ainsley: randy, thank you for what you do. we have a lot of milk in our house and we are grateful for the product you are putting on all of our tables. >> thanks for having me. ainsley: president trump back at the white house this morning after historic meeting with kim jong un. what comes next in the talks with north korea? we will ask democrats bring in a

the very latest, it was 6:30, 5:30, this morning president trump in air force one landed out at joint base andrews. after he came down the stairs, he got into an armored suburban for the 20-minute ride to the white house. he started doing some tweeting. ainsley: he didn't have his tie on. hopefully got sleep. he hadn't had sleep in 25 hours. the summit has come and gone, which is hard to believe. when he went over he talked to kim jong-un. there was edited video what north korea could look like if you did denuclearization your country. steve: that's right. ainsley: we have a little bit of video. brian: he just landed after a long trip. everyone can now feel much safer than the day i took office. there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea. what you're watching, is some video, that the president handed out in korean as well as english. during this four hour meeting
5:03 am
when they were with the four-by-four meeting, kim jong-un, and your delegation, look what north korea could become? they did it by destiny productions. wants to visualize impoverished nation, hermit king doming. doesn't have to do that. steve: come on over to our side. whose idea was that? go to kellyanne conway joins us from washington, d.c. kellyanne, that video, it is now available, some people love it. some people think it is kind of crazy propaganda. whose idea was it? >> it came from our national security counsel and you characterized quite well. kim jong-un has a decision to make. he can either continue to be nuclear capable or he can swiftly move towards, complete verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of the korean peninsula. stop the economic self-isolation that marked his country so long with the suffer of his people.
5:04 am
this is somebody, 34-year-old man imbibed western culture. people report he is very aware of all the privileges that attend to western civilization and i'm sure that some people even in north korea know that as well. look, this president, his moxie on the world stage can not be overstated. unlike the one-sided iran deal, cuba deal, where we gave up everything and got nothing in return, quite embarrassingly, this president has made clear that he is the one looking for kim jong-un to denuclearization and to stablize and this president also engaged allies in the region, mr. abe, mr. moon. he force ad great relationship with mr. xi on a number of big issues. so he has been bringing along leaders in that region the entire time. mr. abe was here last week, for example but i think you can not underestimate what it means to have a leader who makes good on the commitment to keep everybody
5:05 am
more safe. don't give too much attention to the angry people. don't give too much credit to the critics frankly. almost who cares. they're skeptical, they're cynical. last year i sat two seats away from the president when he said fire and fury and everybody exploded. he will bring us into -- now he is de-escalating and denuclearization korean peninsula, they're still not happy. the company sees the president, social media platform. they saw his leadership unfiltered on the world stage. steve: kellyanne what did mr. kim say when looked at video? later showed him the ride of my cadillac here. >> i have spoken to the president this morning but i haven't spoken to chairman kim. what did he say? yes, but again, this president reads people, like no one i have ever seen. he is a master deal-maker and negotiator. that is all very important because so many people are trying to fit into an old, stale framework what just happened. folks you have to throw out the
5:06 am
playbook. for three years now, almost three years to the day that president trump announced his candidacy for the president, he has been really turning the tables over and trying things in a different way. he was sent here to washington to do exactly that he has taken that all across the world. those look, denuclearization korean peninsula no doubt is benefit to everyone. that is a global issue. this is not an american issue. certainly isn't just about north korea and south korea. this benefits everyone. look what happened with iran. this president hates those deals. we gave up so much and got so little. we shoveled over pallets of cash. this president is on the world stage for everyone to see unfiltered, holds forth for media for an hour, gives four different interviews. bilateral is covered by thousands of credentialed press, this is the president i think we should all see more of. the more we see of president trump, the more we hear from him the better. brian: you brought up something
5:07 am
interesting. the president said this twice now, iran is a different country since we tore up the deal. do you what he means by that? >> i think he means he has gone in and undone what the last president did. the last president didn't have the courage to bring the iran senate to the senate. brian: he said iran is acting differently. i don't know, are they reacting differently? >> i'm not going into what the president discusses with diplomatic and national security team what it comes to iran and other countries. they did react differently. responded immediately. there were "death to america" chants from some folks over there, when the president took action. made good on the promise. why? this country whether it comes to trade, whether it comes to tariffs, whether it comes to iran, cuba, now north korea, stop with the one-sided deals that also screw america, american workers, american interests. this president really he has shown leadership and skill but he also has shown will in a way
5:08 am
on the world stage, here domestically that has our economy booming beyond what anybody even expected and anticipated. you can not overstate the effect of the trump economy on the workers in this country. 6.7 million american jobs available exceeding number of people looking for it. it is hess moxie. this is a process. i really hope people saw president trump in full, in singapore, when very humbly said, it's a process. i may come back in aear. this doesn't wor out. out.yay, hey, it didn't work but at least we tried. as secretary pompeo said this is mission of peace. peace and prosperity should be everybody's goal. everybody should get on team america for that. ainsley: kellyanne, this headline will get your attention, click on it, watch, cnn's jim acosta interrupts historic signing ceremony, shouts at trump. that was their headline. if you click on it, this is the video you see. >> this president, did he agree to denuclearization, sir?
5:09 am
>> starting that process very quickly. very, very quickly. absolutely. >> did you talk about otto warmbier, sir? ainsley: there are critics, kellyanne, he was choosing the wrong moment, a historic moment to throw out questions to the president. the 2020 campaign manager for president trump, badbrad parscale he is calling for acosta to lose his press credentials. he thought it was inappropriate. what are your thoughts? >> some people in the white house press corps do that routinely. i'll not giving any names. they make it about me, myself and i. on twitter they're a hot mess, snark and bark, including people that work for him. things that would not pass editorial muster? newspaper, i call it social media muscle, cable news cajon.
5:10 am
this is not about that correspondent or another correspondent. the president didn't make it about himself. he made it about a process. he made it about doing something great for the world. look, the last president was handed nobel peace prize. this president will earn it. steve: right. >> that is all we need to know about this, his moxie. i said from the beginning as pro press person here, i said from the beginning the press and the presidency have joint custody over the country for the next eight years, next six 1/2 years and beyond and people need to really figure out how to cover this president in a respectful manner. they can be skeptical. they can, but there is time and place. he a white house guest. steve: like you said earlier you have to throw out the playbook with this president. you talked about the last summit but the summit before earlier this week when the president left canada, the world community
5:11 am
we can't believe this donald trump guy. he is walking away from the western civilized economies. what's up with that? it is not surprising this is exactly what donald trump said when he was running for president. >> that's right. you can draw a straight line from how canada trump campaigned and what he promised the american people to getting elected on those promises, elevating issues like unfair trade deals and wanting to renegotiate them and make them more fair and reciprocal. this is not a president who ripped up trade deals and walked away this is a president who said let's renegotiate ones more fair and more reciprocal. to whom? to american workers. he is president of this country. he is protecting his workers, american industries. the president said if we don't have steel, we don't have a country. look at the results. look how people are end abouting to the will of president trump whether they want to admit it or not. by the way a lot of consensus building was gone at g7. they agreed to things not getting as much coverage because
5:12 am
