they are breaking into our country coming to our country illegally. let's and forth our border. rob: big bill calls for wall construction to begin by december 2019. jillian: democratic lawmaker said the russians hacked florida voting systems but no evidence. senator bill nelson saying, quote, they have already penetrated certain counties in the state and have free reign to move out. nelson said he wouldn't elaborate since the information was classified. state officials say they have no evidence to back up that claim. rob: it addiction from donald trump on the country's gdp after seeing big numbers in the last quarter. >> virtually above and again, numbers -- we can go much higher. jillian: is this kind of growth realistic and what would it mean
for average americans? his chief economist for the international trade commission peter moricci. is it realistic? >> it is campaign talk, hyperbole, not possible to grow at a 5% rate and politically he will regret it. every president the matter how well he does, i can see that soundbite popping up when he has a bad quarter and democrats using it against him. rob: just like the stock market, you brag about the stock market to live and die by it, it comes and goes. and the last -- president obama with the gdp. he also has terrible moments down one person. you see 4.4% not very good. and the past quarter, 4.1.
sustainable 5% is possible? >> this is like baseball. batting averages matter. president obama averaged 1.9% growth. donald trump since he came to office, the economy has done 2.7, 2.8, his batting average is 40% higher. that is what we should be emphasizing. as i see the economy going forward of the trade war doesn't derail us we will continue to grow at 3%. we haven't seen that in two decades. that is terribly good news and that is what they should be running on. unfortunately mister trump is inclined to say the extreme. what economist he has in the white house which are few tend to come up with numbers to justify. a bad way to do economics. jillian: is he being extreme in these numbers he is helpful for
is it being optimistic? >> i think it is pr trump. it is trump being trump. running the economy, dealing with the chinese is serious business. the bellicose talk only goes so far. this is not the way for a president to be talking to because these words can come back to bite him. my feeling is it is important to say we are doing better, tax cuts work, deregulation works, we have a record number of open jobs for people to take. this is good news and run on that. rob: what do you think of the statement we have heard the past few weeks that this is president obama's economy? he should get the credit? it almost defies logic in some ways. >> let's look back on the obama presidency, he was 6 years in
and blaming bush first troubles. everything that went wrong in the obama presidency was the responsibility of the republican predecessor and everything that goes right in the trump presidency was facilitated by his groundwork. obama and his supporters are shameless when it comes to this. we had a change in economic policy. let's hope the trade wars don't derail it. trade wars are dangerous things, hot wars, cold wars, two kids shooting with p shooters in the back of english class, someone could get it in the eye. this is serious business, that is where his focus should be, not on selling 5% growth, something that can't happen. >> that is how you survived in the classroom. thank you. appreciate you coming. >> 20 minutes after the hour. donald trump has taken direct aim at twitter for shadow banning conservatives. now here from the ceo himself. rob: what jack dorsey has to say
interview with jack dorsey. it does not censor users based on political beliefs and conservative politicians on twitter. the company blaming that on a technical glitch. despite jack dorsey's latest comments on social media remain unconvinced, they do shadow ban, we have seen the numbers. elaine says when is jack going to take care of the situation. jeffrey saying even though i disagree with the way they have been treating conservatives, he is willing to listen and adjust a platform instead of hiding like the other guys do, give him credit for going on sean hannity's radio show, they are trying to be better at least. rob: nancy pelosi always for a controversial soundbite.
>> nancy pelosi says a vote for a democrat in november will make the lives of illegal immigrants a little easier. take a listen. >> going home for a family funeral can come back into the country. every mom who courageously brought her child across the desert across all those injustices. jillian: not making surprising comments a press conference in el paso, texas. jim on twitter says she is the gift that keeps on giving. democrats want votes to put illegal immigrants interest over americans. black dog chiming in that is not a good thing. what is good is truth. be honest about what is happening to protect our borders, elections and citizens. going down party lines. jillian: oh baby, carly has a
surprise. >> listen to her big announcements. >> why is it starting in may? mike and isaiah and i are over the moon and excited, adding fish to the pond. >> are husband's name is mike fisher, another fish to work on. >> a lot of babies growing around here lately. nobody that you are seeing right now but the people through the magic of this show building an army. thanks so much. 26 minutes after the hour.
and kill american soldiers in 2015. according to the department of homeland security, and compared to 30,000 people in june. and kirstjen neilsen will learn more about how drones are threat to the northern border. >> the terror watch list unconstitutional. muslim advocacy group care. >> the federal government created a secret system that relegated tens of thousands of american muslims, and in the muslim community. >> do they have a case here? legal affairs reporter alex
sawyer and criminal defense attorney, thank you for coming in. we start with you. who are the plaintiffs in this case who say their rights are being violated? >> american muslims being represented by the council on american islamic relations brought a suit saying they were disproportionately impacted by the terror watch list and they cited the quiet skies program, no relation to deterring terrorist attacks monitoring people based on whether they look weird. rob: they are watching people you are not seeing that are trying to protect us. seeing people in airports on planes acting nervous and going to the bathroom, sweating it in some cases a cold penetrating stare. people are asking bizarre. is this going too far in trying
to protect people at airports in skies? >> the issue with the lawsuit is we had recent reports that 50 people every day are being monitored on flights. it targets muslims is questionable, millions of muslims are able to travel without any monitoring or problem with that. that is a big hurdle they have to face and the fact that police officers have been able to legally stop people they see and have reasonable suspicion is on the side of federal government in their program. >> nothing about it says where you are from. and there is something to be said, maybe a month ago, she
told fox news, 10 suspected terrorists they are stopping from coming into the country every single day, suspected or known terrorists, this is a big problem. a lot of radicalism and people who want to do damage in this country. that start to go the other way? >> i don't think there has been any link on the terror watch list and stopping people who tried to commit terrorist attacks. there have been 250 terrorist attacks homegrown terrorists, only one person on the list is on the terror list involved in the attack. that person was removed from the list before the attack. it is publicly available and cited in the lawsuit was a larger issue here is it appears based on these plaintiffs they have targeted by relations with somebody else.
a girl who is 9 years old whose father had been expelled and she is subject to scrutiny and excessive scrutiny. rob: this is a response from the tsa. in my view it has been very effective. ordinary citizens should be happy a program like this is in place because everybody expects us to do what we can to do that, protect the privacy and unconstitutional rights of our citizens. to some extent we are all harassed in the wake of 9/11. in the airport somebody grabbing your butt, open your bag, have to take your clothes off. that is a form of harassment. it is irritating and if you did this to people 25 years ago it would be considered harassment. should people learn this is part of the deal if you want to travel? >> the courts have been getting the federal government broad
discretion in terms of national security interests and we saw that with the travel ban case, the supreme court upheld executive authority to make sure the american public is safe and that is part of the training process at tsa. there are adequate questions about a 9-year-old being subject to extra scrutiny because of her father being on the watch list but at the same time the courts have said being subject to extra questioning doesn't reach a constitutional violation. the young girl is still able to travel. rob: an interesting legal debate and constitutional debate. thanks for coming on this morning. we appreciate your time. longer school days but shorter weeks. one school district is dropping down to four day weeks saying it will benefit the community. could your kid's go week be next.

korea to surrender its nuclear weapons. >> we are willing to wait if they are willing to wait but we are not willing to wait long. >> reporter: mike pompeo accused him of using sanctions against north korea. state department official for the us is sanctioning russia again for the poisoning of the former british spiders are in england. haley warns of more potential penalties. >> lots of options we could do this past week so those things will continue to happen until we can cleanup the behavior. >> reporter: the us began restoring sanctions against iran it lifted as part of the iran nuclear deal in european firms continue conducting business with iran. >> they can play politics all we want, we wanted to get out of the deal and we did. the eu can do what they want but you can't condone the practice is coming out of iran so there will be a decision to make. >> chris collins refusing to drop out of his race after being
indicted for insider trading. >> charges levied against me are meritless and i will mount a vigorous defense in court to clear my name. >> the new york representative gave information about a pharmaceutical company to his son who used it to make stock trades. they avoided $768,000 in losses when they got that information before was made public. collins is due back in court in october. the new darling of the democratic party, alexandria ocasio-cortez can't name her party's leader. >> whom do you believe to be the head of the democratic party? >> i don't think there is anyone head. we are a collective. this is a movement. i don't think parties are ever about one person. they are about how the contributions each person gives to the party. there are exciting folks in the
party. rob: ocasio-cortez is running for congress in new york. jillian: a digital doctor. if you have a cold, the flu or general wellness matter, cvs will diagnose you through an apps on your smart phone. is this a good idea? here is doctor mark siegel. thanks for joining us. $59, what do you like about this? >> what i like about this is patients don't see the doctor, they know they are supposed to. we might be able to access by telemedicine. a huge clientele, what about people in rural areas? i can't drive to the doctor. what about people who don't want
to wait in the waiting room? just have a cold or sniffle. what is a mole on my hand? access is a big plus that will lead to people getting seen by a doctor that they were seen before. jillian: this could be a good thing but what are the cons? >> the downside, some of the things i don't want doctors diagnosing over the internet like a cold or somebody says i have sniffled and the doctor feels pressed to give an antibiotic. what about the doctor-patient relationship? someone has a serious thing that might take half an hour or more to get them to reveal. i can't have that same relationship over video that i can have in person. there are intangibles. jillian: chief medical officer on these items, new telehealth offering, patients have an additional option for seeking
care that is more convenient for them. makes you wonder at some point, your traditional doctors office would be extinct if we had things like this. those walk in clinics on every corner nowadays, what do you think of that? >> things you wouldn't otherwise get to see the doctor for. we doctors feel we are becoming extinct but that is not happening. >> we wouldn't want to see that happen. >> they are becoming part of a larger team, physician assistants, there is too much time spent on computers. we are not becoming extinct. we have to worry about telemedicine having too large a role. there is a cautionary flag, it is too convenient. jillian: you have some tips on how to live longer and healthier life. please do tell. >> number what is what you know.

and lift in new york city. the first one of its kind in the country so this would put back pricing and availability. that is where the services are opposed to this but the city says there has been major congestion in the last few years because of all these ride healing services coming into the city and they want to study this service for a year which is why they are putting a freeze. uber said they would do whatever it takes to keep up with growing demand. they would not stop working with city and state leaders including corey johnson to pass solutions that comprehensive congestion pricing. this could hurt people who are trying to get rides using these surfaces although those in favor of it sated hurting yellow taxis.
