[laughter] griff: there was a small events that occurred yesterday and that is our economy is greying in leaps
and bounds. the president taking to the rose garden. it was really something to be there. abby: i bet. pete: you there were in person. pete: personpete. griff: i was. i was covering for the channel. the mood at the white house is really jubilant. they really know that they have scored as i was explaining and talking earlier, pete, you know, if it were a golf game the president has just hit an eagle. they have teed off on the next hole and looking at a short pitch for a birdie. here is the president yesterday, take a listen. >> it is indeed a big one. we have accomplished an economic turn around of historic proportions. once again, we are the economic envy of the entire world. as the trade deals come in one by one, we're going to go a lot higher than these numbers and these are great numbers. these numbers are very, very sustainable. this isn't a one-time shot. if economic growth continues at this pace the united states economy will double
in size more than 10 years faster than it would have under either president bush or president obama. pete: so this is a big part of the reason why americans voted for this president, a businessman who is going to cut taxes, unleash or slash regulations, unleash the frequent. free market and make deals for america when you see 4.1 g.d.p., there are economists and experts who said it was impossible to get to 4%. never going to happen. here we are and, likely, and potentially even moving past it. it's what a pro-business president looks like vs. a pro-government president. that's what brings jobs back. so, you know, folks are happy in the white house. guess who is happy? the american people who have jobs and prosperity and that's what they were hoping for. abby: whether you voted for the president or not, have you got to be pretty happy right now with the numbers we are seeing. this goes back to this is
the first time they can really say this is the impact in large part because of the policies that we have put in place. you mentioned regulation and deregulation that we have seen. also, tax reform. this quarter is really out first time we have seen the tax reform go into full effect. as you said, pete, people are buying things again. companies are out buying. shows people have more in their pocketbook and they feel that confidence. they want to go out and buy things. they want to give their family things. right? they want to live that american dream. that's what we all aspire to do in this country. i don't care where you sit on the aisle. you have got to feel pretty confident where this country is with the economy. griff: rush limbaugh talked about this yesterday. very good at breaking things down on why they're. pete: all the time. griff: here is what rush said. take a listen. >> this 4% g.d.p. is exactly what should happen based on the policies that trump implemented. deregulation which allows capital money to start moving around and creative
and inknow available ways people earning more and getting increases and getting bonuses. paying less in taxes and more disposable income meaning more commerce. it's a self-feeding growth formula and it works every time it's tried. there is nothing accidental. there is nothing coincidental here and nothing really magic. it's just plain old 2 plus 2 is 4, common sense. griff: the president at the very end of his remarks is very honored to see the 4.1 number perhaps even more honored to see the trade deficit shrink. we will talk more about that later today. that's the secret driver here the fact this trade deficit means we are exporting more than double what we have been recently. pete: that's a big one for him. look at industries like manufacturing, like energy, like construction. the ones that previous administrations said are the jobs of yesterday. abby: didn't hillary clinton say that.
pete: and barack obama as well. that kind of anemic growth is the new normal. and a lot of economists said that as well. griff, you brought this up. you should get credit for this. i will read it one of our reports in october of 2016 cnn surveyed 11 economists on whether the economy would ever reach 4% g.d.p. all said no. quote: one economist his name is robert brewska he said pigs do not fly. trump -- donald trump is dreaming that it would get to 4%. breaking news this morning, pigs do fly. they actually do. [laughter] because we hit 4.1%. if it's on the folder it's got to be true. think about it, economists and everyone in the establishment said no, no, no. 4% can't happen. we are managing america's decline. we are a second rate power. our economy is stuck in the mud. trump said no we can unleash it again. america can be great. economic engine of free market works.
abby: some people when they go out to vote is the economy, economy, economy. the mid terms are around the corner, steve bannon who used to be a strategist for the president is no longer there but working on the sidelines to get people motivated to go out and vote for the president's policies. he said the opposition will try to unwind everything the president has done. that's why they need to get out. this is going to be up or down vote. it's a referendum on the trump presidency. they are very focus i had. the opposition is very focused on trying to win the house of representatives. trying to win congress in order to impeach president trump and stop the entire project. they will try to unwind it this is really -- the democrats got one thing, they got a do-over. in this november it's 100 days and a wake-up. 100 days and a wake-up, we have essentially a national election and that's going to determine the second half of the first term of president trump and i think 2020. pete: navy guy 100 day us
and wake-up and did you go home. his reference is we are right here, right at the end. exactly right. this is a political war. the democrats want to impeach this president. motivation should be high on both sides. if the democrats get the house of representatives. that's where they are going. that's where the energy of their base is the base and the media have led the democrats in the beginning. if you are a republican and trump supporter you better be motivated to get that from happening. griff: less than 100 days in the start of the nfl season. this has been an issue from the first time the president took umbrage at players, not standing for the anthem. and that is now, at best, a debacle. at worst, a literally nonstarter for nfl that last season saw less than almost 10% of its viewing cut to drop. and now, here we are.
abby: we are still dealing with this. griff: the player's association says we are not on board. we are not going to go with this new anthem policy that roger goodell thought he had apparently solved it. it appears he hasn't. my red skins just started this week training camp. everyone is taking a look. people trying to get excited. but, i don't know. it could be a really rough time. abby: zac prescott the cowboys quarter back had strong words on what the game means to him and what the game of football means to so many americans, and what this has done to sort of take away that joy that we all feel when we watch football. here's what he said about this. >> i never protest. i never protest during the anthem and i don't think that's the time or the venue to do. so the game of football has always brought me such a peace and i think it does the same for a lot of people. a lot of people playing the game. a lot of people watching the game. a lot of people that have impact of the game. when you bring such a
controversy to the state and to the field and the game it takes away from the joy and love that football brings a lot of people. i'm for taking a next step, whatever that step may be for action and not just kneeling. pete: amen, well said. he can figure out what the nfl cannot. they are in the meetings with the players association. of course the players association could fix it if they want to. they don't. right now it stands a ambiguous: the cowboys came out and said if you are on my team you are standing for the anthem. to say me sounds like the easiest policy. on my team standing for the anthem, otherwise, you are going to sit out and not be on this team. nfl just hurting itself right now. diamondbacdak prescott god bles. abby: people want to talk about challenges we face in this country, think about
ways to make that positive change. i'm not sure what we have seen play out over the past year has helped us in any way other than get attention in headlines. griff: let us know what you think about this. email us at friend email@example.com. what is being talked about fort anthem during the national anthem players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in left hand and refrain from talking. that is what they are asking for. pete: sounds really difficult. abby: send us your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org. starting with a fox news alert. two officers shot while responding to a disturbance call in massachusetts. the falmouth police chief identifying the injured officers as ryan moore and donald d. meranda. one officer hit twice in the chest another grazed by a bullet in the head. >> this is happening way too much. we have got to return back to a time when police officers are respected and it's not okay to shoot a police officer.
abby: a suspect was also shot and will be taken into custody once he is out of the hospital. both officers are expected to be okay. meanwhile overnight in los angeles, a fee malt officer now recovering after being shot in the leg. the suspect also was shot still unclear what led to that shooting. both of their conditions are unknown. and now to another fox news alert. a desperate search for two young kids and their great grandmother after their house burns to the ground. the car fire in northern california tripling in size leveling more than 500 homes and threatening 5,000 others. incredible video of fierce flames whipping into fire tornadoes. two firefighters have now been killed. the fire is only 5% at this point contained. and there's this. president trump putting his stamp of approval for a michigan republican primary for u.s. senate. the president tweeting in part this: john james, who is running the republican primary in the great state of michigan is spectacular. vote on august 7th. rarely have i seen a candidate with such a great
potential. west point graduated. successful businessman and an african-american leader. james will join us live during the 9:00 hour on the show. you don't want to miss that interview. and there's this. a spectacular event seen around the world. the longest total lunar eclipse of the century lasting 143 minutes. the blood moon happens when the sun, the earth and the moon perfectly align. those in north america and greenland could not see it because of the time of day. pete: so you didn't see it but sounded cool. abby: it was very cool in the picture. that's our job, pete, tell everybody what they are missing u. pete: latest sign of trump's economy. are democrats in trouble in 2020. peter morici weighs in next.

griff: if you are just waking up the trump economy is booming. surging 4.1% in the second quarter. up from 2% in the previous quarter. president trump highlighting the success yesterday. >> if economic growth continues at this pace, the united states economy will double in size more than 10 years faster than it would have under either president bush or president obama. griff here to disut is peter morici one of the smartest guys i know privileged to talk to you every morning in d.c. what do these numbers mean and why has this happened? >> it's quite simple. the government has gotten out of the way and let the american people solve their own problems. cut the taxes. cut the regulation and so forth. what it means is the
democrats have got a data problem. i mean, led by paul krugman at the "new york times," donald trump was supposed to be a flop. well now he is a success. there is nothing like being a coach on monday morning and having beaten the spread. griff: that's right, peter. i was at the white house yesterday they are elated over there not elated because they hit the numbers but they believe these numbers are sustainable. what do you say? will we see another quarter like. this we will see quarters like this. even barack obama had quarters like this. what matters is the average over many quarters. i think this president can sustain 3% growth. that's not a come down. barack obama had 1.8. so 3% growth would be a profound difference in americans' lives. sooner or later wages would simply have to go up from that somebody halls to get the money. stocks, ir iras, key owes, governments would have more
revenue. all this stress you see in state and local governments would abate. 3% growth is marvelous. griff: peter, you mentioned president obama. would these numbers have happened -- would this have happened under a president clinton? >> absolutely not. you know the agenda. listen to cortez in new york right now. more taxes, more regulations, more give aways, more of a war on work. more of a tax on work. americans can only bear so much. we have let up on the burdens it's like taking the weights off a sprinter and they have run away. griff: i don't want to go in the weeds. it's early on a saturday morning. >> sure. griff: the president in his remarks at the very end said a big driver in this in what will make it sustainable is the trade deficit has been cut to the tune of $52 billion. why does that matter? >> well, it was an export-led surge. we need to start exporting more in america. there is nothing wrong with
buying chinese toasters if we can sell them the things that we do well. and president trump is trying to open up markets and, of course, a big part of that message was watch the trade agreements. i get for you. that's what he is banking on. i'm hoping we will see more investment in america than we have seen lately. that wasn't in the numbers as strong as i would like. that's where i think the big growth surge is going to come from. lower corporate taxes. lower cost of capital to people invest more in america. griff: one last question with you, peter, that is many of the naysayers say this 4.1 number came about because companies were front loading, trying to get ahead of the tariff impact. what do you say? >> you can't see it in the data. what's more, we don't know what the tariffs are going to be on the other side. my feeling is that was just basically democrats hiding in the boughs of banks who are anti-trump who came up with polemics to poo poo a marvelous achievement.
one of the things i really disliked yesterday was donald trump deserves some congratulations for his accomplishments and there was chuck schumer negative again. you know, this is a day to celebrate. let's hope we have some more. griff: that's right. peter morici the man to go to when you need to sort things out. have great saturday. you are right, it's time to celebrate these numbers are real. and as you say, perhaps the good times are here to stay. thank you, peter. >> take care. griff: all right. a wil brawl breaking out on hollywood walk of fame. corey booker taking a out of maxine waters playbook. >> go to the hill today. get up in the face of some congress people. griff: does this help the political discord in america? we'll debate it. that's coming up. ♪ in and out ♪ you're up and you're right ♪ it's black and it's white

made to me. i'm sure he will continue to fulfill that promise as they serve and searcsearch and searcd search. >> 55 cases each draped with the flag of the united nations and they arrived aboard a plane at u.s. military air base outside of seoul, north korea. this transfer had been negotiated last month during president trump's summit with kim in singapore where they reportedly discussed this matter directly face to face. the return of remains is viewed as a way for the north to demonstrate its intent to follow through on other commitments that kim made to president trump, including most importantly, the commitment to denuclearize. now about 7700 u.s. soldiers are listed as missing from the korean war and 5300 of their remains are believed to still be at large in north korea. the war killed millions but most notably 36,000 americans, pete. pete: welcome home, men. gillian, thank you very much. appreciate it abby, down to
you. abby: thank you, pete. remember when democratic congressman maxine waters said this? >> if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, you get out and you create a crowd. and you push back on them. abby: well this week senator corey booker seemingly took a page out of her playbook. >> that's my call to action here. please, don't just come here today and then go home. go to the hill today. [cheers] >> get up and, please, get up in the face of some congress people. abby: the senator has since walked back this aggressive rhetoric is this really the right message to already send to a heated base. here to debate mitchell ricky and jana caldwell. good morning to both of you. thank you for being with us. jenna, what does this tell you about our political rhetoric right now and maybe more importantly in this conversation the direction of the democratic party? corey booker is someone who has talked about running for president in 2020.
>> yeah. there is a lot of democrats that are going to run for president. maybe even the new face of the democratic party marks seen waters, honestly, when i think about the rhetoric in which maxine waters has used. to seems when ideas, mob violence seems to be the answer. this has become a very dangerous scenario at play. when you see trump supporters or republicans in general get attacked, you think about an example that happened in 2016 where a chicago man was beaten and people were yelling out he voted trump. you know that this isn't an environment that maybe should make the careless and dangerous comments that senator booker means. abby: you have two political parties that seem to not be further apart. why are we seeing so much hate? >> look, first of all i think we need to be clear that senator booker never called for anyone to be physically assaulted, harassed or fossilled. and the fact that 17 seconds of his 35. abby: what did he mean by
that when he said get up in the faces of people. >> when you say 17 seconds of someone's 35-minute speech and misrepresent it to me that's the epitome of fake news. >> do you think that message is helpful for your party and for the country? >> he clearly is telling people to get in the face of people in congress. abby, he did not say get in the face of conservatives. he did not say get in the face of republicans. he was actually asking people to get in the face of members of congress to address homelessness in this country. abby: let me ask you this rorochelle is that the way to make changing? >> i don't think he used the word hurt, beat. i don't think he offered to pay the legal fees of advocates who go and knock the crap out of people because they disagree with the senator. so if we want to talk about leadership. if we really want to talk about that it starts at the oval office. >> row chilly, if roach chillyy
respond to that. >> go ahead. >> i don't believe senator booker was telling people to go beat people up. considering the environment we are in hostility, especially when it comes against actual people republicans, trump supporters, wouldn't you agree that his comments were careless and dangerous, thereby, that's why he walked them back. that's why he said this is not the direction i'm going. in so we can at least have a conversation and be very honest and i know you and i will be very honest with the folks at home. >> being honest, words matter. words definitely matter. but i think that we have to look at 35 minutes worth of words. not 17 seconds. and the entire speech was really phenomenal. he was talking about the future of america. this is not a blue future a red future. a republican, a democrat future. it's about the american future when it comes to homelessness and poverty in this country. if we're going to take 17
seconds, we need to make sure we are telling the american people the truth by saying watch 35 minutes and listen to what he says before and after. abby: you also need to think about what is being said even if it is 17 seconds of how we come together more as americans. >> start with president trump. abby: in that party talk about the issues. quickly both of you, how do we move forward from here, rochelle, you first. >> i think we have to learn to agree to disagree. that's just a common theme that i think mature adults can agree to disagree. i do condone violence of any sort, whether you are on the left or right? absolutely not. did i think that congresswoman maxine waters did step out of line a little bit with her comments. at the same time, we also have a president that has stepped out of line plenty of times at his rallies and, gee gianno, you mentioned the will. you didn't mention the people shoved around by the trump era.
you didn't mention the young man punched in the faces a he was exiting a trump rally. this does go both ways. abby: gianno, last word here. >> i can agree with rochelle in terms of agree to disagree i think that's great. the honest answer and response to this is that's a different era. the era we live in now with the democratic party you're wrong, i'm right. especially with the economy booming like it is, mob violence seems to be the answer that they have. we can be honest about that rochelle, we talk about maxine waters and you said she stepped out of line a little bit. it wasn't a little bit. if obama was in office and republicans said some of the same things that she said, they would be investigated by the fbi. >> and if obama said for people to be punched in the face, this entire country would go crazy if obama said that. abby: to both your points we can agree to disagree and this conversation will continue on after this. thank you both for being with us this morning. >> thank you. abby: have a great saturday. the war on cops intensifies.

hospitalized. and overnight in los angeles, a female officer shot in the leg. her condition is unknown. the suspect is in custody. the news coming as the number of police dying in the line of duty is on the rise. this year alone, 33 officers have been killed. that's compared to 35 officers killed in all of 2017 and we are just in july. we have a law enforcement panel to talk about what's going on. sergeant sean larkin is with the pull is a police department's gang unit. he is also ane's live feature analyst and the deputy cheeft monday clair police department and former law enforcement official. thank you for joining us this morning. >> good morning. pete: sobers news. sergeant, i will start with you. what do you make of this trend. almost so the same amount of police officers killed in 2017, why? >> any officer killed is too many. nowadays i think because of negative media coverage
involved in every officer involved shooting we see, i think officers are finding themselves a little hesitant to use deadly force at times even when they're totally justified. the policy covers them that they are finding themselves hesitant to react and unfortunately some officers are getting killed because of it. pete: tracy, i can relate a little bit in a different scenario being in the military, rules of engagement. commanding officer whether they support you or not depends how you feel in that moment. for police officers in new jersey and elsewhere is, it a different environment? are they looked at differently these days? >> i think police are always looked at differently. as much as we want to be part of the community, the uniform makes us stand out a little bit or mr.. we are always involved in any type of scenario. i mean, we go to medical calls. we go to fire calls. you know, we are there to even help with kids in schools. pete: absolutely. >> our involvement is at a very high level now in society. pete: that's a great point. now we are talking about school shootings and should
police be there. is there a stretch thin environment to it all? do we have enough police? are they asked to do too many things. >> no, and yes. it's hard to recruit police today nobody wants to get killed. i said last week when i was a mafia prosecutor even the mob did not want to mess with law enforcement because of the ire that it brought. i think what's happening today is in addition to that sea change of culture and lack of respect of police you have other factors that escalate the likelihood of violence. have you black lives matter or white supremacists or ho are often anti-cops. have you people like maxine waters, not to pick on her, that could be of either party who are urging confrontation you have animus towards president trump at times. all of this brings flash point and likelihood of reaction to attack a cop much more quickly than it used to be before. i will say law enforcement
has no better friend than president trump. i have been a street cop to white house 30 some years. and i think he will recognize this as if he were watching, this he would pick up the phone and call doj and call the attorney general and say we need more training, we need more equipment. we need to work with the communities. pete: interesting point. the ire would have come from the police community who did that now the ire is more public. have you social media, videos out there. briefly from awful you, sergeant larkin, what needs to change for this to improve? >> you know, obviously, better relationships with the public. i mean, you know, speaking for my own police department, i know we are active out there in the community trying to be that type of relationship with people. but just as, you know, joe talked about, the social media right now is huge because officers we'll relevant respected and now it's actually almost encouraged on social media, it's posted it's shared when an officer is having a difficult time. it encourages others to keep doing it. that's a major issue.
pete: we have to leave it right there. i know this program appreciates what you guys do. a huge swath of america recognizes you put your lives on the line so the rest of can you say live free and safe. >> thank you for your service. pete: abby, over to you. abby: great job, pete. turning to other headlines we are following this morning. take a look at this bizarre scene. a small plane makes emergency landing during rush hour. the pilot said he had no choice but to land the aircraft after the engine lost power. officials say it was flying to ohio after taking parts in the air show in oshkosh, wisconsin. luckily though no one was injured. the obama administration tens of thousands tax dollars to a group called al qaeda. $150,000 in aid came even after the administration found out about the terror funding connection. a total of $200,000 given to the islamic relief agency to supposedly help provide humanitarian aid to the
sudan conflict back in 2004. tensions flair when a brawl breaks out near president trump's new hollywood star. >> hey, hey.

it disproportionately affected conservatives. kind of weird. when you advantage one side and disadvantage the other you are doing something that is wrong. republican chairwoman hers was quality banned while the democrats weren't. same with members of congress. when twitter knew that was happening and they did, that looks an awful lot like what you might call election meddling. pete: a lot of conservative amongst conservatives whether it's twitter or facebook detached corporate elites putting their fingers on the scale. twitter today facebook and others tomorrow. how do we change this? >> here's the thing, twitter is a private corporation, they are allowed to do whatever they want. that's the joys of free speech. when they go ahead and make additions that they know is going to change the political landscape they have done something wrong. twitter has done this by allowing liberals to institute a heckler's veto. when they talk about which
accounts are low quality, some of the factors they use are how other people perceive the account. who blocks the account? who complains and reports on particular accounts? and liberals do that proportionately more than conservatives. when twitter uses that as a factor to declare these accounts low quality, they are putting their finger on the scale. abby: also a systemic thing. you need to have people in your company that think differently. jim hanson, always good to have your take. >> my pleasure. griff: reasons priebus, mercedes schlapp and gregg jarrett all coming up.

pete: even the failing "new york times" calls it a hot economy. there is no way to put it elsewhere. you unleash the business and the free market, this is what you get. the problem is so many of the naysayers believe that america's best days are behind us. that we are managing our decline. part of the reason why americans voted for this president, a big part of it is he said i still believe in you. i still believe in those industries they said are gone. manufacturing, construction, energy, the future will be determined by them. and here we are with those industries coming back and jobs coming back. pretty cool moment. abby: a lot of people don't want to give the president credit. year and a half into the presidency. this is a time when you can say this quarter is when tax reform has taken effect. can you talk about deregulation. companies that are spending more. the american people that are spending more. pete: consumer confidence. abby: look at the policies that have been put in place with this administration. you can't say there has not been an impact on where the country is right now. did you go back to older headlines just a year ago.

in sight is a bad thing. pete: paul krugman, i can't wait for his next "new york times" article. tell me why 4.1% growth is a bad thing he? will try. so look for it in the "new york times." abby: critics would say it's not sustainable. how do you keep this going for a long time. the president said yesterday in his remarks when you were there, griff. you heard, this that whenever he travels abroad he said so often the leaders of other countries congratulate me on the economy that we have here in america. that is how the world views the success of another country is how their economy is doing. how their country is booming. he said that is the greatest success we can have as a nation is if our economy is doing well. griff: you wondered how other nations viewed former president obama or might have been president clinton. here is obama and clinton talking about the trump economy. take a listen. >> some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back. and when somebody says that
he is going to bring all these jobs back. how is he going to do that? what are you going to do? >> you might think because he spent his life as a businessman he would be better prepared to handle the economy. well, it turns out he is dangerous there too. pete: might think because he has run things he might be better with the economy. he is. think about the audacity of the community organizer and career politician, effectively saying that businessman he wouldn't know what to do. how dare you think he might know how to market our economy, unleash the free economy, cut taxes and regulations. small business owners, you see that event in illinois with those manufacturers, who said my job was gone and now it's back because america can build things better than anyone else in the world, believing in your people is what your chief cheerleader should do. that's what trump has done. abby: all three of us have been out in the field and we have traveled the country the past year. we have talked to voters. i can't tell you how many have said i feel like small
business owners have said i feel like i can hire more people. i feel like can i provide more for my family. that makes me a happy person. griff: yeah. abby: that has a real impact on the elections. it will be so interesting to see how the mid terms play out. with the economy doing well, the democrats, what is their message going to be, right? i think they are still trying to figure out what their soul is who they are. hard to do when the economy is doing well. griff: what you summed up is confidence. they have confidence in the economy. you know, there is another thing happening across the country as we have all traveled and that is the lack of confidence that so many and really the lack of respect that people have having for ice, for our law enforcement. and, you know, that was something this week that president trump will not let go. these law enforcement officers, whether they be ice or border patrol or others, to know that he has confidence in them. just real quick, pete, let's take a listen to what the president said about
standing with us. >> one of the critical lessons of 9/11 is that immigration enforcement saves lives. we must enforce the rules against visa fraud, illegal overstay, illegal entry, and other immigration violations and crimes. and crimes they are. yet, leading democrat politicians have called to abolish ice. without the brave heroes of ice, we would have no enforcement, no laws, no borders, and, therefore, we wouldn't even have a country. to the courageous public servants at ice, we want you to know that the american people are with you and my administration has your back 100 percent. pete: say what you want. but this administration knows how to message and stay on message and hit the key items, right? it's 4.1% g.d.p. growth. the economy, jobs, jobs, jobs. and immigration. we're going to stand with law enforcement. we believe in borders. and they feel like going into the 2018 mid terms if we stay focused on delivering on the economy,
and litigating border security and ice against the party that says we don't want a wall and we want to abolish ice, they feel like those are winning messages. that was the weekly address. you choose what you talk about each week and they're staying focused on those issues. abby: they need that morale boost because you have so many in this country helping to protect us and make us safer. it's really difficult when you have local leaders and local mayors around the country that don't want to support ice. that want to make it more difficult. that tell their cities don't report things. don't help ice do their job. that's exactly what we heard from the mayor of philadelphia. jim keny, right? is that his name who we hear from all the time. he said we are not going to provide them with any information so they can go out and round people up. i cannot in good conscience allow the agreements to continue. all of us have ancestors who were once immigrants. all of us. this the complete opposite message of what we heard from president trump. as i said with these mid terms. the parties couldn't be further apart, right, in what they stand for and the
type of country they want to live. in the american people are going to have a real choice this time around of what they want. griff: here is a problem with the mayor's statement. the border patrol stops them owe f.d.r. about. gang members a threat to the nation it is ice that then rounds them up as he says. so we are talking about opening up the borders if we get rid of ice. pete: classic conflation of immigrants vs. illegals. especially illegals who commit crimes. shelter them you are hurting the citizens that live in your jurisdiction. abby: send us what you think at email@example.com. starting with a fox news alert and serious one. two officers shot while responding to a disturbance call in massachusetts. the falmouth police chief identifying the officers as ryan moore and meranda. one officer hit twice in the chest the other grazed by a bullet to the head. >> this is happening way too much. we have got to return back to a time when police officers are respected. and it's not okay to shoot a police officer. abby: the suspect was also
shot and will be taken into custody once he is out of the hospital. both officers, luckily, are expected to be okay. meanwhile, overnight in los angeles, a female officer is now recovering after being shot in the leg. the suspect was also shot still unclear what led to that shooting. both of their conditions are unknown. and now to another fox news alert. five children and one adult all from the same family are killed in a massive motel fire. the children range in ages from 2 to 10. the woman was 26 years old. the 2-year-old child is in the hospital being treated. the fire destroyed about 90% of the motel in southwest michigan where 27 rooms were occupied. the cause is still under investigation. we'll keep an eye on that one. and there is. this a top cbs executive now accused of sexual misconduct in a bombshell report. six women now say the cbs chairman and ceo less moonves made unwanted advances on them. the story published in the new yorker also lays out accusations of gender discrimination and
retaliation by more than a dozen women. the alleged incidents took place 1980s and late 2,000s. the 68-year-old executive released a statement saying this in part he regrets mistake that he made in the past but never used his position to harm anyone's career. and there is this: the florida officer helps a homeless man get back on his feed, helping him prepare for a job interview. the cop first went viral when he was spotted shaving phil's beards. well, phil told the officer he had an opportunity to get a job at mcdonald's if he showed up with a clean shave. at the interview, phil was then told the job would be his as long as he could provide a florida id. so the officer took him to the dmv to get a license. phil is doing janitorial work with absolute room for growth. what a great story that is. pete: great stuff. abby: i love to hear that. griff: r50e8 quick we don't much time. study evite poll about

all together in the same place. you both were there. how special was that? >> spending time with these veterans that are incredible heroes and who didn't talk about it for 70 years, they wouldn't talk about their story. and we can all learn from something from that. they came home from the war. they bucked up. they got to work and they did what they needed to do. and these reunions were the first time that they could talk to each other about something that only they could understand together. and that was healing for all of them. and then for us just being part of that and being age to share those stories that they have entrusted us with has been an incredible experience. pete: you say this book helps -- or there has been exoneration of the captain. why was he court martialled briefly and what's the exoneration? >> he was court martialled for failure to zigzag which sounds really strange but that was an anti-submarine technique. he had discretion to zigzag and chose not to. they really needed someone to blame. it was at the end of the war between that and another sinking about a thousand lives had been lost. and they pin the blame at
the lowest level. and we learned decades later that the navy knew at the time that there were many other people who should have been held accountable instead of the captain. griff: very powerful. thank you so much. it is an incredible story in indianapolis of the worst sea disaster in naval history a lot of lessons. pete: it's already out. the book is "indianapolis." abby: such as important part of our his strismt ladies, great to have you here. >> thank you. griff: new marijuana bill letting federal workers caught smoking pot to keep their jobs. abby: plus alexandria ocasio-cortez has big ideas in mind to fund her socialist policies. listen. >> if people pay their fair share, if corporations and the ultra wealthy, if we reverse the tax bill, close some of those loopholes, that's $2 trillion right there. abby: what does dan bongino think of that response? i don't know if he has any opinions on this. we have to check out.
he is up next. ♪ ♪ sometimes, bipolar i disorder can make you feel unstoppable. ♪ but mania, such as unusual changes in your mood, activity or energy levels, can leave you on shaky ground. help take control by talking to your doctor. ask about vraylar. vraylar is approved for the acute treatment of manic or mixed episodes of bipolar i disorder in adults. clinical studies showed that vraylar reduced overall manic symptoms. vraylar should not be used in elderly patients with dementia due to increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles, or confusion, which may mean a life-threatening reaction, or uncontrollable muscle movements, which may be permanent. side effects may not appear for several weeks. high cholesterol and weight gain; high blood sugar, which can lead to coma or death; decreased white blood cells,
raised our corporate tax rate to 28%, if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that's $2 trillion right there. if we implement the carbon tax that's an additional amount of the large amount of revenue that we can have. and then the last key, which is extremely, extremely important is repriorityization. just last year we gave the military a $700 billion budget increase, which they didn't even ask for. pete: that's the new socialist darling from the bronx. let's bring in dan bongino, former secret service agent and host of the dan bongino podcast. she seems to be speaking for a lot of the democrats even though she calls herself a democratic socialist. her ideas are gutting the military and taxing the rich with different priorities. what do you think? >> yeah, pete, she is also speaking for people who don't read books. because almost nothing she said in that clip was factually correct.
ronald reagan, yes, ronald reagan actually raised a couple of taxes when he raised those taxes, tax revenue went down. when he cut income taxes significantly, tax revenue went up. so what she is talking about about raising taxes she has very little evidence going to produce more revenue. number two, she confusing the entire military budgets, pete, with the increase. the entire military budget is around 700. they didn't ask for $700 billion increase. she is running for congress. duped this, right? not only -- by the way, the lies go on or the mistruths or whatever the focus group tested word is and then she says and they didn't even ask for it general mattis actually lobbied for the increase. dolls she not know that did she just make up this whole thing? at what point is she going to go on the air and say something that is factually correct? this is now, what, 100 interviews where she has filibustered something big. this is embarrassing now. griff: dan, let me just tell
you, she clearly is pointing out some of the weaknesses of the g.o.p. she tweeted that the g.o.p. is weak on fighting for working class americans. weak on crime, work on equal rights. weak on national security, weak on rejecting racism, weak on moral courage and family values. she says hey, look, this is a problem with the republican party. what say you? >> yeah, yeah. that's just a genius tweet. weak on borders. we want a border wall that l. will definitely weaken the border. weak on family values. s that fascinating. griff is, she just making this up? seriously? she may need an intervention after this tweet. that is insane. why would you even write that? she doesn't even understand basic facts by the way. when she says the thing about fair share? you know the top 1% of earners pay 40% of income taxes. big federal income taxes. think about that. one out of 100 people working their butts out there is paying 40 cents of every dollar. the top 20% of earners are paying 70 to 80%. now, by the way, new rules on talking about the economy
since trump is in office and i want to thank him for this. one we are not apologizing for hard work anymore. number two, we don't owe a dime more captain federal government. not a dime. every time we give you a dollar you waste it you flushed our social security down the toilet. have you ruined the education system. you are drowning us in 20 trillion in debt. we are not giving you any more money. do you hear what we are talking about? in rules. no mosque, no more money for you. have you ruined all your credibility. it's not that the government is too big it's too dumb to spend our money the right way. we will keep it now thank you very much. abby: dan, there are a lot of democrats who think she is the future of the party. they love the message she is talking with a lot of young people as well. free education, free healthcare, who doesn't want that? the big question as we all are talking about this morning is where is that money going to come from? how are you going to pay for it? cabot phillips who is on our show all the time he goes out and gets an idea of how people are thinking in this country. he went to college campuses and asked them about these
policies. he went to her district. abby: here is what they said about how going to pay for this. >> her platform includes free healthcare, free tuition, living minimum wage and housing. are those things you think the government should be providing for people. >> absolutely. >> 100 percent. >> i feel like everyone should have free education and healthcare. >> how are we going to pay for those? >> oh, god. i mean,. >> us. >> us, i guess. >> who, in your mind should pay for all of the free things? >> all the free things? well, some of it should come from taxes but the government should pay for it. >> but the government is funded by taxes. >> yes. >> there you have it, dan. >> that last answer was epic because it sums up the entire progressive movement. how far are we going to pay for it? by taxes but then the government can pay for the rest as if the government has like a money fairy. like there is a money fairy that sprinkles money all around. do you understand like the
black hole of intellectualism the current progressive movement lives in? they don't understand. it reminds me of a melton freidman analogy where he said the great myth of progressivism you think your neighbor is paying for it but your neighbor saying the same thing. they think you are paying for it they really believe there is a money fairy out there. i applaud ocasio-cortez for doing the hard work. i ran for congress, i lost. i knocked on a lot of doors. nice job. i'm being serious here. she is running for congress. she knows very little about what she is talking about. if she is going to be the future of the party, she owes the voters out there some semblance of reality, and she is not living in it now. pete: dan, based on those yachts behind you in that shot you are clearly one of those 1 percenters. >> i'm proud. i earn my money and i'm proud of it. enough rules i'm not apologizing any more. pete: good man. griff: send the money fair uphere we could use a yacht.
abby: it is hoth though in florida. i don't envy him too much. but a yacht sounds nice. other headlines i want to bring you this morning. starting here. four of the nine family members who died in the doomed duck boat, they are laid to rest. hundreds showing up to support the surviving relatives at a ceremony in indianapolis. tia coalman was with 10 family members on that tragic day when she lost her husband and their three children. the tourist boat capsized during a violent storm in missouri, killing 17 people. the nbc is buildin nbc is build- ntsb is building a. only valid in states where marijuana use is legal. so far 30 states have passed laws allowing residents to use medical marijuana, including nine that have now legalized recreational use. remember how vice president

just not good enough. >> one quarter of growth does not a transformed economy make. as we all know the numbers bounce around a lot from quarter to quarter. >> president trump is going to take a lot of credit for these good numbers. don't believe him. >> it's good to see but will it last? >> yeah, exactly. griff: why won't they give president trump credit for the booming economy? joining us now is managing he had ever to olympic media katie frakes. happy saturday. >> i'm so happy to be here up with you finally in new york. griff: the president said his policies were going to raise this economy. it now clearly has why can't and i was there yesterday in the president was making this announcement in the rose garden. why is it some in the media won't give him credit. >> they love to hate him. that's heir favorite thing. if trump is going to say that's historic. that's his manner of speaking. everything is the best. everything is the greatest. it's never happened before. so if you want to point out that it did happen under obama or bush, that's fine. you can also be happy that
the economy is strong and american families are doing better and there is less people on food stamps. but it seems like they just want to focus on whatever negative aspect of this they can clutch to. and that's kind of sad. >> and yesterday, at the very end of that announcement, he pointed to the trade deficit as a very significant thing. whether it's the deregulation or tax cuts, there is also the trade deficit cut is a strategy and they won't even engage in discussion over why this is sustainable. >> right. and they can't -- i don't think they can stomach the idea of giving him any amount of credit for anything. and, yes, the economy, you can't always interpret it to just one president. that's not quite how the economy works. i think credit is due here in that these deregulations make it easier for people to go back to work. making it easier for businesses to do their jobs. clearly it's had an effect in getting us to 4.1%. is that sustainable in the long run? probably not. historically that's just thought how it goes.
if is great, great news. there is no other way to spin it than that. griff: let's talk about quarter three. the administration, the president says this is definitely going to continue for the next quarter. we will be just days away from the midterm elections, what will the media say then? >> if it continues on at a rated that this high or close to it, i think that's probably bad news for democrats. it's hard to campaign on impeaching trump when more so have you such a strong economy behind him. and that's what americans care about the most is it easier for them to save for their kid's college and put food on the table? they care more about that than they do impeaching trump. if that's the only things they have got on the mid terms. griff: thank you very much. we will bring you back when the quarter three ends and see what the media has to say then. thank you very much. >> thanks. griff: straight ahead reince priebus and mercedes schlapp coming up. twitter claims that they shadow banned conservatives whavmentd does this mean for
abby: welcome back. twitter continues to deny that they don't shadow ban the right despite prominent republicans saying they are falling victim to latest glitch. what will be the impact on heavy social media users. let's turn to joshua. great to have you, joshua. >> great to be here. abby: this seems to be happening for some time. twitter says it's a glitch on their end. it's an error and they fixed it. you tell a different story of what you guys have experienced? >> so a number of our influencers have reported that when they have viral
tweets, oftentimes in the days following they see of a lot of their social media numbers. when you think about it, the social media cartel, twitter, facebook, instagram, they create algorithms that show us what we want to see that gives them enormous power to control what we do see. and i think that they are not being honest with it. abby: all right. here's the statement from twitter. they say we certainly don't shadow ban on viewpoints or ideology. for the most part we believe the issue had to do more with how the people were interacting with these representatives' accounts than the accounts themselves. they are saying we don't have a problem here. we are not trying to treat someonen the republican side any different than on the democratic side. >> of course twitter is going to say that look at how an overwhelming majority that these employees at the silicon valley company does not share our ideologies. cultural elitism that believes a few people in an ivory tower should make
decisions for every day americans, these people don't want free thought. and it's more than that they don't want it, it's that the left knows that when our ideas compete with their ideas we win. that's what our young influencers see on campus every day. we see a markedly different story online. believe capital schism a great idea. a lot of the students love this country. online i don't think that's properly represented because these companies are doing everything they can to change the conversation. abby: either way these companies have real challenges they have got it figure out. great to have you on this morning. great to see you this morning. >> good to be here. abby: daca prescott says he has a message for protesters. he said time to do something than just to kneel. pete is going to hit the streets. we have never seen this before. is he going to find out what the american people think. stay tuned for that reince priebus and mercedes schlapp and gregg jarrett all here live. two big hours live until the go on "fox & friends" this

wallet. griff: great to be here today. yesterday i was at the white house when the president came out and announced 4.1% growth. the fastest economy growing since 2014. and the fact that today we sit here almost 100 days from the midterm election. pete: a huge number. here to react to that big 4.1 g.d.p. growth number is reince priebus. former white house chief of staff. reince, thanks for being here this morning. this is what the president campaigned on. i'm a businessman. i'm going to do things differently. i'm going to bring this economy back. your reaction to that big number and how it effects, you know, a big date on the calendar coming up in november of 2018? >> it's great to see and i agree with a couple of guests you had on this morning which is everyone should at least say this is great news for the country and give the president his due. you know, on the first few days of his administration, one of the most consequential things he did was sign an executive order that said for every two regulations -- for every regulation that's put in, two regulations have to be
eliminated. and i think something like today it's anywhere from 15 to 20 regulations have been eliminated for every one that's been put in. and you are seeing the effects. now, as far as the midterm, it's really bad news for the democrats. because, without this good news, the president's approval number was anywhere from 8 to 13 points higher today than it was on election day when he won. so, on election day when he won, the president was at 37% today he is anywhere from 45 to 50. one last thing, the reason that's important is democrat turnout is concentrated much lower than republican turnout. here's why it matters. in 2014, the democrats actually held an advantage over the republicans in 2014 the "wall street journal," nbc, abc, cnn had the democrats ahead and the
republicans won 13 seats. very bad for the democrats. the president's approval numbers alone are problematic for them. abby: i was going to say what is the message then that republicans should be using. as you said mid terms around the concerner and that's what you are working so hard on to get the base out to vote. what is their message? how do they speak to this economy and numbers we are now looking at 4.1% g.d.p.? how do they seize on that opportunity for some success on their end? >> well, keep in mind, it's important for everyone to understand, these midterm elections are really in a very limited amount of seats. and these are basically moderate congressional districts. they -- and many of them, about 23 of them, all you have to lose, they were actually won by hillary clinton, even though a republican in that congressional seat won. so the republican won, but hillary clinton won, which goes back to what i said before why it's so important that actually the president's numbers are much better, which are going to help in those districts.
but what those folks need to do is what they are doing right now, which is look at the fundamentals. that's what i have been saying the last six months. the fundamentals of the trump economy is -- that alone is a winning message. look what's been happening on the economy. look what's been happening on wage growth, which, for the first time in a long time is increasing under president trump. and then look at what's happening on isis, on the courts. the basic fundamentals, people don't have a lot of time to digest every little bit of minut minute sushi minut. the president's record is doing well for this country and work well in moderate districts. pete: absolutely. griff: third quarter is going toned right before the election. we will z. if that's a game changer. thanks for joining us. abby: speaking of the mid terms you are hearing on the left. specifically here in new york. from the bronx from
alexandria ocasio-cortez who has completely opposite perspective of how she wants the economy to go. and how she handle our taxes and how we deal with our spending and she talks about a lot of socialist ideas. right? she is a socialist who wants free medicare, free education and she -- so she is also tapping the republicans on an area she thinks they are weak in. this is a tweet she sent out. g.o.p. is weak on fighting for middle class americans. weak on crime weak on rejecting racism. weak on moral courage. weak on family values. so, yeah, i would say this is a representative choice of their values. pete: this is a new socialist darling from the bronx versus capitalism. ultimately that's what we're dealing with right now. capitalism vs. socialism. and you are talking about it's almost like when you are accused of something, you deny and counter accuse. to accuse the republicans of being weak on the border, being weak on national security after spending on the military at the
decimation of isis, it is they don't have anything to run on. they are picking out moments and trying to make it play opposite day. voters aren't going to buy it when their pocketbook gets strong and they know who stands for the border and the military. when they look at the supreme court picks. when they look at the v.a. and the focus that the president has put on there those things really matter for people that voted for him. as reince said stick to the core issues and the republicans will be in better shape. abby: darling of the democratic party. people like that message. they want to talk about free education and free healthcare. folks saying have you got to do more research. it doesn't work that way. the money has got to come from somewhere. dan bongino was on last hour and here is what he said about that. >> that's just the genius tweet. yeah. weak on borders. we want a border wall that will definitely weaken up the border. weak on family values? that's a fascinating new twist. she may need intervention after that tweet. that's insane. i applaud alexandria
ocasio-cortez. she is running for congress. she knows very little about what she is talking about. if she is going to be the future of the party, she owes the voters out there some semblance of reality and she is not living in it now. griff: dan says, is she the future of the party there? this is very significant. what you are going to see and this is an observation that the democratic party is going to have its own small civil war here before the midterm elections because she is pulling them so far left. when it was bernie sanders you expected it now it is this candidate in the bronx. albeit perhaps more democrat-liberal corner, she is now starting to really gain traction nationally for democrats. you will see people separate. remember, the playbook that won for democrats was conor lamb in pennsylvania. pete: pretending to be a republican. exactly the opposite of what alexandria ocasio-cortez is saying. you will receive a big consternation within the democratic party i think within the next few months. pete: reckoning won't just happen in november of 2018.
it will go all the way through the 2020. rye sis tans is heavy. trump derangement syndrome is thick. socialists on the asen dance. where are the old blue dog democrats. do capitalist democrats exist anymore? that is going to be what is at play here here some of the candidates for 2020 have to veer for left. they have to get through the primaries. tough process. steve: steve. griff: i invite to you to the smithsonian to see the exhibit on blue dog democrats. abby: where is my invite? griff: you too. abby: a fox news alert. two officers shot while responding to a disturbance call in massachusetts. the falmouth police chief identifying the injured officers at ryan moore and donald d. member ran do. one officer was hit twice in the chest. the other grazed by a bullet in the head. >> what happens way too much. we have got to return back to a time when police officers are respected. and it's not okay to shoot a police officer.
abby: the suspect was also shot and will be taken into custody once he is out of the hospital. both officers luckily, are expected to be okay. meanwhile, overnight in los angeles, a female officer is recovering after being shot in the leg. the suspect also was shot, still unclear what led to that shooting. both of their conditions are unknown. and now to another fox news alert. five children and one adult all from the same family are killed in a massive motel fire. the children range in ages from 2 to 10. the woman was 26. the 2-year-old child is in the hospital now being treated. the fire destroyed about 90% of the motel in southwest michigan where 27 rooms were being occupied. the cause is still under investigation. and there is this: president trump putting his stamp of approval for michigan's republican primary for u.s. senate. the president tweeting in part this: john james, who is running the republican primary in the great state of michigan is spectacular. vote on august 7th. rarely have i seen a candidate with such great potential, west point
graduate. successful businessman and african-american leader. james will join us on the show during the 9:00 hour. you don't want to miss that interview. and there's this. the crowd goes wild after a scottish dart player throws a perfect game. watch this.

stop giving aaccess to realtime arrest database and not renew a contract set to expire next month. kenny claims ice is misusing the information from database. specifically they are gathering names and addresses of residents who list foreign countries of origin and conducting sweeps of homes and workplaces that include law abiding immigrants. >> we're not going to provide them additional information so they can go out and round up people. >> some federal officials are pushing back against the mayor saying this decision puts u.s. citizens in danger and president trump is taking it as an opportunity to double down on his own support for the embattled agency. >> without the brave heroes of ice, we would have no enforcement, no laws, no borders. and, therefore, we wouldn't even have a country. to the courageous public servants at ice, we want you to know that the american people are with you and my administration has your back 100 percent.

the obama administration september sending will will will money to al qaeda. "the national review" $115,000 grant in aid came even after the administration found out about the terror funding connection. a total of $200,000 were given to the islamic relief agency to supposedly help provide humanitarian aid in the sudan conflict in 2004. and a taliban official is claiming they had peace talks with an american official in afghanistan. the unnamed source told the a.p. that he met with alice wells, the top u.s. diplomat for u.s. asia. the top diplomats have neither confirmed or denied the meeting. we'll follow that abby? abby: thank you, pete. now to a fox news alert. 55 cases containing what are believed to be the remains of u.s. servicemen killed during the korean war returning home after 65 years. griff: president trump thanked kim jong un for the return. that i catake a listen. >> i want to thank chairman
kim for keeping his word. we have many others coming, aboubut i want to thank chairman kim in front of the media for fulfilling a promise he made to me. i'm sure he will continue to fulfill that promise as they search and search and search. pete: well, about 5300 american soldiers' remains are believed to be still in north korea. joining us is joey jones bomb technician and purple heart recipient for losing his legs in a bomb blast in afghanistan. explain why service member, let alone the korean war, the forgotten borrow is so important. >> good morning, guys. you know, here in america, we experience the sacrifice of past generations passively. we don't really see it firsthand. each my wars in iraq and afghanistan are more commonly experienced through a peterburg movie than
understanding what that sacrifice means. people say things we didn't get much out of these meetings when we're just bringing home a few thousand dead soldiers. what they don't understand or failing to recognize is that these men and women, mostly men in that time, they died so we could set here and ironically say it's not that big of a deal. you know their sacrifice truly comes full circle when we are so free and so comfort be in this country when we can say not a big deal a few thousand service members, a few thousand remains not a big deal. today we stand and we are not forgetting these men. today it's not the forgotten war. today we are remembering them and we are going to have a chance to lay them to rest in the only place they can find rest and only place they should be and that's here at home the land of the free because of the brave just like them. abby: joey, such a good story we need to hear this morning. often called the forgotten war. you think about where we are today and you say the meaning of those meetings that we just had between the two leaders and now what is taking place. how important is this for
closure for so many families that were impacted by this war? >> well, it's incredibly important for those families that actually have loved ones that are coming over. and i know that, you know, some of the antidotal messages out there that are very anti-trump would say many of those families are no longer alive. i think trump said parents and obviously their parents aren't alive. the underlying issue here is that 330 million americans should care, should feel something, and should celebrate bringing these men home. and another thing i want to point out that's often time overlooked is that we sacrifice people today overseas looking for remains. i have got a friend that also almost killed in cambodia doing just that so to understand there is ordnance and planes and booby traps all around these remains and we sacrifice to ogo out and roar them shows just how much it means to us. we are willing to sacrifice links limb and property today to bring those men home. i can't be more proud of our country. i'm proud that today our country took a stand and
decades later our president took a political risk to bring these men home and i couldn't be more proud. it's a solemn day but happy day for me. griff: one more question, that is how significant is it then that the president says this probably opens up those search mission. the many people don't knowed we were doing a lot of missions, 30 plus missions. then it stopped. it hasn't been done in 10 years. they are going to start this again. general mattis alluding to it yesterday. how significant is is that? >> i will tell you, look at me. look at my face right now. that's who we are bringing home. and i mean that to say the only difference between me coming home and you seeing me on television right now and those thousands of service members is just technology and opportunity. these are real people. they had a face, a story. they sacrificed and they served. and they felt something laying on foreign soil as they bled out and died. to understanding that's who we are bringing home, that's
a huge deal. that's something we should all celebrate and care about and today take a moment to remember. if this means we have more opportunity to go over there and find more of our brothers, that's what we need to do. there isn't a service member alive or none that i know that wouldn't volunteer for that mission and consider it just as important as anything else that we have the opportunity to do in our service. abby: you know the meaning of sacrifice better than anybody. joey jones, always good to have you with us. a message we all need to hear today. >> thank you, guys. abby: u.s. economy booming to 4.1% g.d.p. growth. mercedes schlapp is with us live with what that means for the surging economy under president trump. pete: and, this 8-year-old boy is pouring cups of lemonade for a great cause to support his local police officers. hear from him, hope they didn't shut him down. i don't think they did. hear from him coming up ahead. my mom's pain from

in size more than 10 years faster than it would have under either president bush or president obama. abby: that was president trump yesterday at the white house touting the booming economy and now we want to bring in mercedes schlapp, white house senior communications advisor. these are great numbers across the board, mercedes, 4.1 g.d.p. growth. i think the big question and you heard the president there. he says these numbers are sustainable. have you got critics who say, you know, they aren't sustainable. these are not numbers you are going to see lasting for a very long time. what is your reaction? >> oh, absolutely. first of all, we have to remember that the president is -- you look at this optimism in consumer spending. you see the fact that we are in historic moment in terms of our economic growth. this is the first time in four years that we have seen the g.d.p. break at 4%. remember, it was economist larry summers who basically said that if we get to a 3% growth, that it would be fair enough to say if you
were to believe in tooth fairies. right now i have got to till we better start believing in the tooth fairy because we reach to the 4% right now it is sustainable. in the sense that we have seen increased capital investment. so these business investments, for example, before president bush took office, it was only growing at 1.8% increase. look at the fact that president trump has put forth strong economic policies, move forward with strong deregulation reform. and what have you seen is business investment now grow at a pace at 9.4%. that is significant. you are talking about job creation. you are talking about the fact that businesses are restocking their shelves. there is optimism with consumers and with businesses. again, when you look at this, you look at the fact that there is a long-term incentive in terms of businesses being able to invest in america and invest
in american workers. that's all due to president trump's vision for a strong economy and his successful economic policies that we're seeing in place. griff: mercedes, let me just ask you then, you talk about the vision and the policies. trade deals are their trade deals in the works, in the pipeline right now that are concrete? >> absolutely. i mean, you saw this week president trump meet with the eu commission president juncker where they did talk about these principles and starting these negotiations for zero tariffs. and zero nontariff barriers. we got the eu to basically start buying and increasing purchases in soybeans. and basically working with us in terms of -- in terms of american energy. so, again, we are making significant progress here with the eu. we are working through a nafta deal with mexico, with canada. these are important trade deals.
but, one thing about president trump, which is so significant, for too long it's been status quo when it comes to our trade. president trump understands that we need to use these taferls as a negotiating tool. bringing these countries, bringing these leaders to the table to get better trade deals. and that is what the president is working on every day to protect american workers. and we will see these trade deals come through. we saw very significant win this week with the european union and the discussions that they had at the white house. pete: 4% is the tooth fairy i'm all for the tooth fairy. my hat is off to her. >> we are in. we are in. pete: mercedes another topic as there is always multiple cylinders firing. north korea negotiations we saw great news of the american service members remains being returned. speak to that and how does that play into the overall relationship we have ongoing with negotiations with north korea to get that peninsula denuclearized? >> well, the north koreans
obviously delivered on a promise that they made in terms of returning these remains. and we are working diligently to make sure that that process happens. what we know is that this is directly due to the fact that president trump obviously negotiated and worked with chairman kim. and so at this point, what we're seeing is the fact that for presidents, former presidents have tried to bring these remains back and they have failed. it is because of president trump's leadership in terms of being able to take a very difficult, complicated situation as is in the case of north korea, work with them in order to ensure that we bring back the remains of these men and women. those who died for our country. those who died for our freedom and they will be able to lay to rest here on american soil. abby: all right. getting your thoughts now on alexandria ocasio-cortez a woman we have all been talking about, the new darling of the democratic party. pete: socialist darling.
abby: social isles out of queens, new york. she was speaking recently about her ideas on socialism and how you pay for that and she compared that to what's going on right now in the white house and the administration and she says spending is out of control. even in places like the military where they didn't even ask for that here's what she said. >> if people pay their fair share. if corporations and the ultra wealthy, if we reverse the tax bill but raised our corporate tax rate to 28%, if we do those two things and also close some of those loopholes, that's $2 trillion right there. if we implement a carbon tax that's an additional amount of a large amount of revenue that we can have. and then the last key, which is extremely, extremely important is repriorityization. just last year we gave the military a 700 billion-dollar tax -- budget increase, which they didn't even ask for. pete: they didn't ask for it except secretary mattis did.
so raising taxes and gutting the military. >> well, as you know, that is the mantra of the democrats. and you forgot to include the fact that the democrats also want to abolish ice. obviously and really not move forward on immigration reform. and in terms of securing the border. but, remember, it was the democrats, not one of them voted for the tax cut legislation now that's in law. what we have seen are direct, positive impacts on our economy because of this tax cut law. the fact that you have had millions of americans basically receiving bonuses. we have seen wages starting to increase. you see the fact that consumers are spending. you are seeing $300 billion of money being invest you have had in america by our corporations. this is what we causal a booming economy. this is what we call economic growth. and of my advice to the socialist candidate is to basically say take an economic class with
president trump with larry kudlow, kevin has set. our key economic team who has led to this incredible success on our economy. the fact that we are putting americans back to work. the fact that hispanics and african-americans are hugely benefiting from our economy, and that's thanks to what president trump has done in terms of pushing forward a pro-growth economic agenda. pete: that would be a good podcast econ 101 with the president and larry kudlow. i could sign up for that. >> hey, you just gave me an idea. pete: might not be a bad one. abby: mercedes, great to see you in medicine minister, new jersey. turning now to other headlines we are following closely this morning. turning to a fox news alert. and the desperate search for two young kids and their great grandmother. after their house burns to the ground. the car fire in northern california tripling in size leveling more than 500 homes and threatening 5,000 others. incredible video coming in of fierce flames whipping
into fire tornadoes. two firefighters have now been killed. the fire is only 5% contained at this point. and there is this: a doctor is facing charges for overprescribing pain medication leading to the death of a patient. a grand jury indicting the medical profession. he ran a neurology and pain center as well as a medical practice in west virginia. the jury found that he prescribed opioids that were not for legitimate medical purposes for the past five years. he will be back in court next week. yikes. and president trump is awarding the prestigious medal of honor to a fallen air force sergeant. john sergeant was killed in afghanistan in 2002 and credited with saving the lives of his teammates after his helicopter was shot down. he led the effort to rescue one of his comrades despite heavy enemy fire. sergeant chapman will be the first airmen given the medal of honor since the vietnam war. that will be next month. and an 8-year-old boy is rolling up his sleeves in an effort to raise money for his local police department.
>> a goofed thing to do for the police -- the blue stripes police department because they will stop what they're doing and come out to help people if there is serious trouble. abby: how great is he? in just a few hours brecken simmons is setting up a lemonade stand outside of his house in missouri. don't have to worry about cost he will anything anyone can spare. hoping it make at least $12 for our boys in blue. how great is that? pete: i think he is going to make more than $12. you government regulators, don't try to shut down his lemonade stand. that's a thing now. legal defense fund for lemonade stands because they literally try to shut too many down. good job, kid. we're ready new top iranian general's message to president trump. what's the best way to handle iran? we will ask a special operations intel analyst next. griff: plus geraldo rivera and gregg jarrett both here

>> thank you. pete: we struck a bad deal trying to prevent them from doing so. if rhetoric remains hot what should we do about it? >> iranians are generally known for being all talk. they pride themselves about talking how strong they are, even though the u.s. government clearly knows how weak and fragile they are both economically and militarily. so, you know, they -- they are always going to choose sort of this pride over being pragmatic and that can be quite dangerous because even though, you know, we will go out and there is this war of words that is happening right now. we are really not going to win that just based on how these guys think. the president can go out and tweet all he wants about how he is going to obliterate them. they are just going to come back and say okay, yeah, we are going to obliterate you plus one. really, there is always going to be a better way to handle that that's through covert action. pete: what is that covert action? we have scrapped the deal. we still have heavy sanctions on iran we don't want them to get the bomb. this rhetoric has gone back
and forth. if you had the ability to put in place measures to take on the iranian regime. what would it be? >> part of it would be unleashing our special operations guys to go after some of these elements that are upsetting the regional stability. so, you know, if you haven't worked within the intelligence community, you might not know that the iranians are covertly at war with us. i'm not so sure that we're really covertly at war with them. that's for years the obama administration has really taken this almost whistle passed it approach to some of the things they have been doing. it's almost as if they have been pretendin pretending iranis weren't responsible for hundreds of american soldiers deaths weren't responsible for provoking naval forces and purging them in the gulf. houthi firing into narpts. we need to really step up our aggressive covert action in this case. that also includes cyber. that also includes allowing the israelis to do what they have been begging to do for
while which is to step up their targeting of this organization called the quds force run by general solomony going around upsetting the middle east. pete exporting terrorism around the world. israelis know it more than we do because it's on their doorstep. when america looks the other way and chooses not to see these things the problems only get worse. bret, thank you for your time. >> thanks, pete. pete: he flew helicopters in iraq and then ran a successful business. now john james is running for michigan senate seat. and he just got the endorsement of the president. he joins us live next hour. and, it is national milk chocolate day. so, of course, we are celebrating with some, what? is this right in the prompter? avocados and other food you wouldn't expect to go with chocolate. i guess we are going to try it. the chocolate will be good. how will the combo be? ♪ favorite girl [cheers] ♪ check out the bass pro shops and cabela's

it must be true. >> you know why pigs fly? economist said no way we reached 4% growth. one economist said pigs do not fly. president trump said the weather is nice and the economy is booming. because the white house said because of the trade policies that wouldn't work would sustain us. paul from the new york times said these policies were ignorant and this was a terrible thing. we know for the short-term this would be a good thing. we would find out in the last hour i was body on friday when the president came out. today we have the american
people talk about why this is such a big deal. >> you are talking about job creation and the fact that businesses are restocking their shelfs. there is optimism in terms of consumer. there is a long term incentive with businesses investing in america and american workers. that's due to president trump's vision for a strong economy and the you can accessful economic policies. >> all right, let's begin. geraldo. we have seen the effects of deregulation and policies from this administration. companies are going out and buying more.
the american people are buying more. >> first of all on the issue of why the president isn't given more credit for this wonderful booming economy we are exsuper -- experiencing know you have to remember how deeply louted he is. he could deliver gold to every family and they say it was too heavy. i'm being facetious. it's a real problem in the country. it's a real problem that the president master mined a great economy. it was suppose to cycle downward but it's distaining the record
economy. i would point out to the socialist within the democratic party you have had control of america's city for decades and run them into the ground and not severed the population that's significantly minority populations. i on the other hand using principals of free enterprise and unleashing the monster created a situation were wealth is trickling down into the city. record low minority unemployment. this is big stuff. if i were the president i would practice it everyday. >> absolutely, the reaction among many said this could never happen. help many ein the mindset that said 3% growth is not possible. 4% growth is not possible. they believed the decline was
