woman was caught shaving her legs in a hotel pool in florida. don't do that in public. how about that? rob: pool is far more vial. jillian: yes. agree. okay. have a good day. ♪ ♪ and we can't stop ♪ and we won't stop ♪ steve: miley cyrus. back in the day we can't stop. folks, finally after a long week, it is friday. thanks for joining us tgif. thank goodness it's fox, right? ainsley: i like that. brian: i'm going to declare friday and i'm going to declare i think president is going to declare a little bit later a state of emergency. what events took place last night not only back-to-back votes funding bill of. the president was ready for plan b. ainsley: the president said
3:01 am
he is going to sign it and at the same time issue a national emergency to get more money for the wall. steve: what's going to happen after that? we told you the democrats are going to drag him into court. sure delay will happen. first, after the president declares it's a national emergency humanitarian problem at our southern border, the flow of drugs. immediately after he does that house judiciary chairman jerry nadler is going to introduce into the house a resolution of disapproval that would overturn the president's emergency declaration that's the way the law was written. if it passes it will pass the house by a simple majority. then it goes to the senate. if they get 51 votes in the thasenate, then essentially the president would be out of luck. he would then have to veto it, which would be the first veto of his administration. but, if he cannot get 512349 55n the senate. that makes him look bad because republicans voted
3:02 am
against him. brian: "the washington post" reports that mitch mcconnell got a call from the white house saying the more i'm reading this bill i don't want to sign it mitch mcconnell was beginning to panic what do you mean you are not going to sign it you have got to sign it we have got to fund the government. it's a terrible bill full of poison pills. steve: it is. brian: i want to make sure that i can declare state of emergency because i have got and been working on the past three months ways to get additional funding to the tune of $8 billion. so if i can do that and you are going to back that i the sign. this mitch mcconnell said fine, i will do it. he said we will vote on it they voted first. they got 83 votes. more than enough. the house would vote later. get more than enough. then mitch mcconnell would say the president also plans on declaring a state of emergency. ainsley: legislation falls short. he says i'm going to find other ways to get that money. you are giving me 1.4 billion through this deal. i'm also going to get 600 million from the treasury department. the drug forfeiture fund. 2.5 billion from the defense
3:03 am
department for the drug train addiction program and 3.5 billion from the defense department military construction budget. steve: right. ainsley: all to be used to you build that wall to keep drugs out of the country. steve: i'm sure a lot of the president's base this morning good, that's exactly why we put you there. we wanted you to do that. do you know who doesn't like it? the democrats. >> declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act. >> if it was an emergency every time a president of the united states couldn't get what they'ved from congress we would be in a constant state of emergency. >> we fought the revolutionary war not to have king george or a successor. this is the actions of a king. and no matter which route he takes it, will be challenged from the court. >> if the president can declare an emergency on something that he has created as an emergency, an allusion that he wants to convey just think of what a president with different values can present to the american people. brian: been on the books since 1976. 58 times presidents with
3:04 am
different values have been in the white house and 58 times. and in fact, 31 of the emergency actions are still on the books since 1976. so how bad can they be? and we know we have had a diversity of opinions of people in the white house. president obama did it dozens of times. president trump dba dozen times. president trump has already had three executive orders declaring a state of emergency. ainsley: you heard democrats that aren't for it a lot of republicans that are for this. listen to this. >> i think he will go the the national emergency route. we had three weeks to find a compromise. the hope was we could give the president his budget number and do something aboutpsand daca. that ship never appeared. >> i don't join with my colleagues in believing if the president does this, when he does it he has declared he is going to do it that it will be the end of western order. i don't believe that. steve: really it comes down to this. do you think what is going on on our southern border is
3:05 am
a national emergency? well when you look at the number of people that were apprehended in 2018, it was close to 400,000 that were apprehended. how many weren't apprehended on average that's 1100 per day. so if you think that there is a national emergency with so many people flowing across our southern border whether it's the sex trafficking which the president has talked about or the drugs, you are firmly behind the president in doing. this then you have got to ask yourself is that pentagon money that was appropriated by congress to do different things, like drug interdiction or military construction clearly would both be drugs building is on our southern border. if you can make the argument that that all makes sense you think what is he doing is absolutely a okay. ainsley: that's one of the reasons people went to vote for him for that wall. you ask the republicans support him and the wall. it's common sense.
3:06 am
don't you want to know who is coming into the country. keep tabs who is coming. in they don't have a heart for the people in the southern countries below us that don't have as much as we do. they know the country is amazing. make sure we know who is coming. in we have a major drug problem in our country. kids are dying all the time because they are overdosing on this. fentanyl takes like three little drops and you are dead. steve: three grains the size of a grain of salt can kill a person. ainsley: amazing. brian: the world didn't come to an end when bill clinton did it 17 times or george bush 14 times. it's got to work its way through the court and the fact it's an emergency it will go there fast. ainsley: they expect it to go through court but they expect to win on appeal. steve: generally the courts uphold the president of the united states has broad authority to protect the country. you will hear from the president himself. he will be live in the rose garden we believe exactly four hours from now. you have will see it on fox. meanwhile had andy mccabe
3:07 am
essentially not had his way, the president would not be in the white house today becausheis revealing in this new book and "60 minutes" interview that apparently some top doj officials and fbi officials were trying to recruit -- talked about recruiting cabinet members and the vice president to oust the president of the united states via the 25th amendment. listen to this. >> i was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency and won the election for the presidency. and who might have done so with the aid of the government of russia, our must formidable adversary on the world stage and that was something that troubled me greatly. i was very concerned that i was able to put the russia case on absolutely solid ground in an indelible fashion that were i removed quickly or reassigned or
3:08 am
fired, that the case could not be closed. steve: really? brian: meanwhile andy mccabe has a little problem. he brought focus on what he did and didn't do as deputy director and. they recommended a criminal referral for andy mccabe. you cannot say he is telling the truth and at the same time back james comey. they contradict each other at person times during important time lines no. doubt about it he was taking head counts in order to overthrow the president. the vice president said said no one came up to me would i take over the job should andy mccabe and the fbi do a palace coup. that's what alan dershowitz was saying and fearing. >> any justice department official who even mentioned the 25th amendment in the context of president trump has committed a grievous offense against the constitution. the framers of the 25th amendment had in mind something very specific. and trying to use the 25th
3:09 am
amendment to circumvent the impeachment provisions or to circumvent an election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing. i tha challenge any of my colleagues get trump at any cost camp come on television and justify the use of the 25th amendment other than for physical or psychiatric incapacity. ainsley: basically just said that if the president resigned or if the president passed away while he was in office the vice president would take his spot. knowing what we know about this vice president, i surely doubt he would ever go against and not be loyal to the current administration. steve: here's the thing. the 25th amendment is very clear about how you would get rid of the president. it does involve the vice president, it involved the cabinet it does not involve the department of justice and the fbi. and that's what they were trying to do. brian: the deputy attorney general, we know going to wear a wire or were you kidding? who kids sarcastically says
3:10 am
i'm going to go in and meet with the president and wear a wire around try to overthrow the government. i was kidding about that. i have news for you andy mccabe or that source in the "new york times" says you weren't kidding. we have got get rosenstein i believe under oath in public to tell us who is lying? you, andy mccabe? or james comey. steve: congress has been trying to get him up on the hill for the last six months he says i will have informal meetings. i don't want to be under oath. now lindsey graham wants to subpoena him unless he shows up and testifies. ainsley: he says he was not joke. there were multiple occasions where he discussed wearing a wire. brian: how does he still have that job? how does he go to work every day trying to overthrow the president? steve: appears mr. mccabe on this clip for "60 minutes," people will be watching and trying to figure out what the heck else happened behind the scenes. brian: 10 minutes after the hour, jillian mele won't tell us what goes on behind the scenes at your show.
3:11 am
you will tell us what's going on in the news. jillian: amazon pulling the plug on plans to build a new york city headquarters. democrat governor andrew cuomo now slamming his own party over this move. he claims it will cost $30 billion in revenue and 25,000 jobs adding, quote: the small group of politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community. democratic socialist congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez praising new yorkers for defeating, quote: amazon's corporate greed. not the last you will hear of that william barr is officially confirmed as the u.s. attorney general. barr sworn in by chief justice john roberts at the oval office with his wife and senator lindsey graham by his side. his three daughters and grandchildren also at the ceremony hours after the senate confirmed him in a 54-45 vote. barr previously served as ag under president george h.w. bush. today a federal judge will hear arguments about adding a citizenship questions on the 2020 census.

♪ brian: president trump forced to declare a national emergency to build his wall and get other border security. the move is expected to draw challenges. how would this compare to challenges by former presidents is the law on his side or not? let's ask law professor jonathan turley. jonathan, they will use your case against president obama for what? >> well, that's right. they are using the case where i represented the house of representatives against obamacare. and we won. this is not the same case. what president obama did was order the treasury, certainly to opened up into insurance companies that's a different type of funding. going to use money by congress doesn't have tight conditions on them.
3:18 am
that's congress' decision to make. they can appropriate money and not put many conditions on. it's going to be a different fight. so there is two issues here for the court. the authority, the authority to declare the emergency and the source of the funds. on the source of authority, they will lose in a spectacular fashion because they gave this authority to the president. brian: in 1976. >> that's right. he and other presidents have virtually unfettered authority to declare an emergency. on the funds, this is not our case from the obamacare fight. they have a much more difficult time in challenging all of these funds. remember, the president can start construction with the money congress just gave him. and even if they knocked out one or two of these sources he still has plenty to go pretty far down that road. brian: bring me to the legal road. who files the suit. i found it curious the speaker wouldn't say if he files a national emergency i would look to stop it didn't commit to that if you want to stop the president, how
3:19 am
do you file it? >> well, can i tell you i hope the house of representatives is not foolish enough to file as an entire house the way they did when i represented them because they could lose that important victory that we secured not that long ago. they don't have to do that. they can go down to the texas border. find some rancher that will be subject to seizure of their land. those people have standing. they can sue it will go probably to the d.c. district court. it could happen in some other jurisdictions. and the court will have to decide if it's going to enjoin this construction. i don't think it will because they have a green light to start construction. now, the court might enjoin some sources of funding. but, that's not going to change much. that building is going to start along that line. if the court. brian: with the 1 pin 3 it will start building. county president begin with the 8 that he found in
3:20 am
different departments while this makes its way through the court? >> he can until the court enjoins him. but the important thing is when -- if congress goes in front of the court and says we want you to stop this, the court is going to say whoa, whoa, whoa. you first of all gave this authority to the president without many conditions. you gave this money without many limitations. more importantly when you passed this act. you gave yourself the right to rescind it. to reject it. so you are coming to me to do something that you could do but you don't have the votes. and that's not normally what we do here in the judiciary branch. brian: fascinating. so the president is going to sign this bill and declare a state of emergency all before noon. exciting day. 58 times national state of emergency has been declared by the president since 197631 of those emergencies are still on the books. jonathan turley, fascinating time. thanks so much. >> thank you, brian. >> as the president gets ready to declare a national emergency to build a wall.

ainsley, thank you. democrats are gearing up for 2020 pushing further to the left with some socialist policies. but according to a brand new fox news poll out this week, the majority of americans prefer capitalism instead. take a look at the big wall. nearly 60% of voters. 57% to be exact say they have a positive view of capitalism. more than twice the number who feel the same about socialism. so what do younger generations not understand about capitalism or why do they like socialism we have a conversation in the studio. an attorney who fled communist albania and jason nicoles lecturer of african-american studies at the university of maryland. good morning to both of you guys. >> good morning. >> good morning, steve. steve: jason, let's start with you. what is it about socialism that you think has captured the imagination of a lot of young people? >> well, first of all, i think we have to start out and understand that socialism and capitalism can coexist. this idea that there has to
3:26 am
be this clear dichotomy between the two is kind of a false dichotomy. i believe that socialism, you know, people seem to hate socialism like had you in your poll until you tell them that you are going to get rid of their medicare or their social security which were socialist programs. i think, you know, the idea that we can't have an expansion of the welfare state and also have some elements of private ownership i think is a false dichotomy. steve: all right. peter, your family fled al bane i can't. your father tortured to death by a socialist regime. i have a feeling you don't feel the same way. >> actually, i don't. i'm surprised the numbers we got americans approving capitalism. i think it could be worse if you take into account what the media is doing to socialism, promoting every day. and beating up capitalism. what the social media doing with capitalism, i'm surprised we got that number. if people knew how evil socialism is, the approval
3:27 am
of capitalism. steve: what do you mean east evil, peter? >> it is complete evil. it replaces god with government. it is against prosperity it is against liberty. it is conformity and if you don't conform with socialism, brutal force is going to be used against anyone who disagrees with it. i have seen that movie and i don't like the ending of it. my family suffered and endured under socialism and the story that i'm sharing with you can be shared by millions of americans, legal immigrants who came to the united states. steve: the university of maryland where you are a lecturer, are you one of the people who tries to show your class the benefits of socialism and say hey, this is something we should be working for? >> well, what i do tell them is about the roots of capitalism and how they can be exploitive. the roots of capitalism in this parts of the world and western hemisphere are slave trade and slavery. i feel terrible for the people who have gone through dictatorships and misuse of
3:28 am
socialism and as i said, i don't think that we should have either capitalism or socialism in a vacuum. i think we need social democracy which is an expansion of the welfare state. when you look at capitalism it's very exploitative. steve: the way you said it earlier there are social programs right now in the united states down on their luck or retired and need social security and things like that. that is an example of socialism in our democracy, right? that's what you are saying? >> yes. yes, that is what i'm saying. i think we can also expand it further in terms of more protections for american workers. i believe in medicare for all. i believe every human being needs healthcare and that's a human right. i think we can expand it even further. steve: jason, thank you very much. peter, i will give you the final word. >> socialism is all with commands and control. when you look at capitalism. capitalism has lifted more
3:29 am
people out of poverty than any other system in the world. if you give capitalism the free markets and allow the free markets to determine the people's future. allow people to be free, allowing individuality to prosper. prosperity and liberty, they go hand in hand. socialism kills that there is no prosperity or freedom or liberty under socialism. steve: we are going to leave it there right now. we report, you decide. peter and jason, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thanks, peter. >> thank you for having us. steve: what do you think about that? email us at 6:30 in new york city. a man attacked by a mountain lion while hiking speaking out for the very first time. listen to. this there was a point i was concerned i wasn't going to make it out. i knew pretty good blows to the back of the head it didn't release i was going to have to do something a little more drastic. steve: he did. the incredible survival story of that man coming up next. forget building walls. beto o'rourke wants to tear down the walls that are there right now.

3:34 am
is he going to go into the same rose garden and he is going to sign the bill and declare a national emergency. ned ryun, republican strategist. he was a speech writer for george w. bush and founder and ceo of american majority. do you like the way the president is doing this? i think he is com compelled to do something. this bill far more odious than people want to acknowledge. the wall funds are restricted to the rio grande sector, 55 miles. local government has the control that guess who controls that sector democrats? i'm telling people, if it's any of those miles are actually built, it will be years from now, i think they are just going sob doing resist and restrict and try to prevent that from being built. i think is he compelled to go this route. i'm not crazy about the national emergency route. i have been arguing for the department of defense's section 284 authorization. you don't have to declare national emergency. steve: reprogram that money.

they want an open border approach for him to say that our borders have never been more secure. you guys just showed that graphic 400,000 people a year coming through our southern border. this is not the right approach a sovereign nation takes. we have to actually have borders. brian: goes to show you how this is pure politics. he says the walls right now are forcing illegals towards the most dangerous places to cross. wait a second. so you are saying the wall is forcing people to go a different direction so that direction. >> they don't you want the wall they want people to keep pouring in because they think they are building out their political base: donald trump has to make more immigration reform. ainsley: open the borders, come on, in we will pay for everything for you. free healthcare and free free college. >> non-citizens coming in end up on a form of social welfare if you have been in the country more than 10 years it goes to 70%.

3:46 am
america's muslims in her remarks she has branded every muslim in the america as anti-semite. this is absolutely unacceptable and unislamic. she has shown a degree of inslans, arrogance anti-semitic expreparations and beliefs for years going back to tweets in 2012. the jewish committee in minnesota approached her to try and see where these ideas were coming from and help her understand. it's a disgrace and to single out aipac by the way i'm not paid by aipac. i have no relationship with them. she failed to mention that muslim nations, saudi arabia, qatar spend februaries of millions of dollars more on lobbying than aipac does. there is an incredible bias that is disturbing and to me speaks of islamist anti-semitism. ainsley: should she be penalized? some are calling for her to step down. >> eject her from the house of foreign affairs
3:47 am
committee. they have no justification for keeping her there anything she is proposing is now going to be interpreted through the lens of anti-semitism. we also are very concerned, i am, that she is affiliated with the boycott divestment sanction movement which is legitimizing and normalizing anti-semitism. it's a movement that calls for the eradication for the state of israel which is unacceptable. it's disguised as a human rights movement but it's actually anti-semitism and that's the new anti-semitism. it's infecting islam. there is an op-ed in the "the washington post" about it by a colleague anti-semitism is carried thought through islam whether muslims like it or not. that is an think they particular call to islamic believes. she elm bodies that and american muslims must reject it. ainsley: my intention is never to jewish americans as a whole. at the same time i reaffirm the problematic role of lobbyists in our politics,
3:48 am
whether it be the aipac or the nra or the fos sill fuel industry is that satisfactory to you. >> that rings hollow. there is no reason for anti-semitic speech. it's not only hate speech it's genocidal speech. only vilification or prejudice of a people that leads directly to genocide. it's unacceptable. secondly, about lobbying welcome to liberal democracy. this is america. we get to lobby our government in any number of interests with any means that the citizens want. so she doesn't accept that she doesn't want to participate in the vibrant democracy that america is. ainsley: if this is really -- if she has this much hate in her heart for the jewish people, where does that come from? what is her background? why would she believe that? >> so, certainly it, does not come from islam, which teaches us to treasure and revere the tore remarks moses, just as it does jesus and the bible. it's not coming from islam.
3:49 am
this is day novo this is a 20th century construction that has adopted the northern arab world and rife amongst muslims who don't have critical thinking and who see maybe the success of israel or maybe the intelligence of the jewish community with resentment and with animus. and i don't accept that it's a means to advocate for the palestinian people either. the palestinian people need advocates. they have advocates just as the jewish people do, too. and many more besieged muslim populations in the world than the palestinians, the and others facing literal genocides at the moment. so, it is absolute hypocrisy. the other thing that i think prevents americans from understanding this and particularly the democratic party, there are enormous fears that saying these
3:50 am
things is somehow islamophobic. to all the viewers and listening, criticizing the endorsement of anti-semitic, anti-israel, anti-zionist speech by a muslim is not islamophobia. that is a false construct that just prefers islamism and denies us to look at the truth. ainsley: thank you so much for being with us. have you heard about flipping houses there is a new flipping trend. listen to this. rating clearance i'lls and reselling the items for full price it worked so well next guest just quit their jobs. they will tell us their secrets, next.

store. more oftentimes there are some tools out there that you can use online. but, usually those are heavily trafficked by other people that are doing stuff like what we do. we tend to look for stuff that's out of the norm. maybe different stores that usually aren't seen as potential profitable places for other amazon sellers. we try to just think outside the box and go in there and hit the clearance aisles and look at anything that might be there. and that's how it is. steve: okay. brian: capitalism. steve: folks like more information follow you guys on instagram you are at flipping profits justin and kristin herbert, thank you very much. ainsley: thanks y'all. >> thank you. brian: there is the ingenuity. steve: what a good idea. ainsley: colin kaepernick has been out of the nfl for three years now. his supporters say he wants to play. he was just given a chance. why did he say no? brian: a big show ahead.

about for a while. three hours from now president trump out in the rose garden will declare a national emergency over border security then is going to sign make spending bill. brian: congress passing a measure overnight in the hopes of stopping another government shutdown. it was successful. it doesn't end there. ainsley: kevin corke joins us live from the house where the president will address the nation. kevin? >> good morning, folks, you are right. this will be a very interesting opportunity for the president not just to talk about his mindset behind calling and declaring a national emergency. it's also very important to talk about how he intends to get money to fund national security, borders, and, of -- br security and building a wall on our southern border. we talked a great deal how the president would move money from different pots to try to achieve his ultimate goal. that is coming up with $25 billion to fund borders. as we take a look inside the numbers. you get a sense from what is he really going to try to do. he is going to claim
4:02 am
$8 billion for the border wall. 1.375 billion for the border security compromise which we talked about yet. that is part of the bill. there is also $3.5 billion that he intends to claim out of the dod's military construction budget to again create that border barrier. another $2.5 billion of the dod's drug interdiction program and for good measure, $600 million out of the treasury's drug forfeiture fund. again, trying to collect as much as he can from different pots in the government to, again, secure the border. now, the white house as you can imagine has been talking about this idea ha that we have to do something if congressional lawmakers won't. sarah sanders had a statement yesterday. i want to read part of it. she said. this president trump will sign the government funding bill. and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action including a national emergency. there it is. to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border. you may have heard nancy
4:03 am
pelosi say plainly yesterday, you do this now, be careful. a democrat president might decide to do something similar in the future. that's not stopping the president because he says this is a real crisis. and has to be tackled right now. of course, that's coming up at 10:00 a.m. we have live coverage. for now, back to you. steve: thanks for explaining the numbers, kevin. the president is going to make it really easy. i think his base understands. this he is going to probably say look, i have been trying for -- i have been working for two years with congress to try to do something. and i haven't been able to get as much as i have wanted to. i listened to the lawyers. i personally feel i can get this $8 billion out of money that is already been appropriated from congress for various reasons for drugs and military. and use it right there. you sent me to washington to do something about the southern border. this is it. well will the democrats take him to court? only if jerry nadler who is going to immediately file a resolution of disapproval only if that fails in the
4:04 am
house and then the senate. it will probably pass the house. but then it could actually pass in the senate because there are some republicans who do not like the fact that the president is going to declare a national emergency. ainsley: as soon as the president said national emergency, almost instantly he was met with fierce criticism by the democrats. listen. declaring a national emergency where there is no national emergency is not good for the president to do. >> declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act. >> i think all of us will come to regret this. this is not the right way for the president to try and end run congress. >> if it were an emergency every time a president the united states couldn't get what they wanted from congress we would be in a constant state of emergency. >> we fought the revolutionary war not to have king george or a successor. this is the actions of a king. and no matter which route he takes it, will be challenged in the courts. brian: it's called 1976 rule that's been used multiple
4:05 am
times in order for a president to use -- take action state of emergency. always challenge in this court. immediately declaring all of the daca kids declared adults could stay here. the problem is 1.375 billion for border fencing and border barrier, ballard fencing. so many limitations to it. confer locally if we want top build a wall neither butterfly park. near the historical park wild refuge. not only is he not getting enough money he is getting money so restricted they would have wall challenges through the 55 miles. ainsley: look at that brian. as we look at the presidents there. you see how many times that bill clinton used a state of emergency. 17 times george w. bush 13 times. but what the president has done here is he basically said. this nancy pelosi for 35 days she would not negotiate with me. i stopped your plane because you wouldn't negotiate with me. you still didn't negotiate with me. guy back because you told me to to negotiate fairly.
4:06 am
i saw what you gave me. i read it i'm outraged by it. i almost ripped it up. called mitch mcconnell and said i'm not voting for it. tell everybody. mcconnell talks him off the ledge and said you just make sure everybody knows that i'm putting the state of emergency out there. mitch mcconnell goes okay. i will back that, mr. president. so you would think he would. steve: if you were the president and looked at the bill the congress handed him. it's a stink bomb it does not have nearly the amount of money that he wanted and so restrictive. that's why he is going to do the state of emergency. apparently he was leaning against the bill. his attorneys saying let's just program money. state of emergency way too complicated an hour ago brian talked to jonathan turley. what does he say about the state of the emergency? that the president is going to declare in three hours? he said this. if congress goes in front of the court and says we want you to stop. this the court is going to say woe, woe, woe, you gave
4:07 am
this to the authority to the president without any conditions and money without limitations. more importantly, when you passed this act, you gave yourself the right to rescind it, to reject it. so you are coming to me to do something that you could do but you don't have the votes. brian: jonathan says that the house should not bring up this lawsuit. it should be people on the border or somebody else to bring it forward and say this directly affects me. and then the court fight begins. meanwhile the president can continue to build while they fight it out unless there is an injunction. ainsley: did warn the white house. almost certainly it will be blocked by the courts at least temporarily the president hopes to win on appeal. >> other thing to remember it's not just the border. the democrats freak out everything this president does. but he is the president and he feels that he is out to protect the country and that's why in three hours is he going to say i'm declaring a state of emergency and i'm going to take those $8 billion to start building a wall.

4:10 am
for their communities and they can have more say in this country than the richest man in the world. we were subsidizing those jobs. so, for the city was paying for those jobs. so, frankly, if we were willing to give amazon -- if we are willing to give away $3 billion for this deal, we could invest those $3 billion in our district ourselves if we wanted. to say we could hire out more teachers, we can fix our subways. we can put a lot of people to work for that money if we wanted to. steve: expression have you got to spend money to make money. ainsley: going to make 25 to $30 billion over the next 20 years. so what's $3 billion in tax breaks? brian: do you know what that company would have done? also with the tax. ainsley: every state is fighting for amazon. brian: marc thiessen was apoplectic saw that win by democratic governor and democratic mayor as they brought this business to new york city. here is how he breaks it down.
4:11 am
>> ocasio-cortez is a wrecking ball inside the democratic party. as a conservative i'm sitting here with popcorn and watching it happen. i mean, this is -- this was a deal negotiated by the democratic governor of new york, the democratic mayor of new york, sponsored by democratic legislators and she comes in, the newly elected democratic socialist and wrecks the deal and creates such a hostile environment to the point that amazon said we don't want to work in this environment. we're gone. and they took 25,000 jobs with them. and just to show you how economically illiterate she is, she said the city was paying for those jobs. there's no $3 billion. literally she doesn't understand that there is not $3 billion. and the lesson for america is if you like this, you will love the green new deal. ainsley: amazon said fine i'm out of here then. i'm not going to work in a state where we don't have full support. the governor is furious. the democratic party is split in new york. the governor wanted that that would be a big win for him. steve: amazon would contribute to the infrastructure.

4:18 am
co-story top story obviously with the president possibly declaring a national emergency and the budget shutdown that shares 1 and 1 a. instead at "the washington post" they don't even really touch on this in their top 14 stories. instead the story says what it was like for andrew mccabe to work with trump and sessions a negative story obviously. the point is the fact that there was even a discussion, a plot that may have been tried to be hatched around wiring a deputy attorney general invoke ago 25th amendment to oust a sitting president because you want to say he is mentally incapable. this something that aaron sorkin in the west wing would say no that's unbelievable. steve: why isn't it a bigger story elsewhere? >> why isn't it a bigger story else where? i think there is a couple reasons for that, obviously. mostly because the fact that perhaps it's based in conjecture. i would hope that's the case or perhaps a case that people don't see this as a
4:19 am
big deal that they want to push the fact that of course the president was mentally incapacitated why is that because rod rosenstein wrote a memo recommending that james comey should be fired that democrats and republicans alike said he should be fired. that's the reason you want to go down a road to oust a sitting president? i would hope that when mccabe is interviewed, steve, is he pressed on this time and again. why did you think you could possibly even get away with something like this? steve: right. okay. >> and a very negative tone the interviewer should have. i have a feeling that's not going to happen. steve: for the last two years. people on television have been talking about well, russia collusion there was russia collusion. now we have heard from richard burr, the senator from the great state of north carolina that senate intel has seen no evidence of that this turned out to be a story that msnbc reported and, yet, mrc, media research center said that the network newscast spent zero minutes covering this particular story, which is crazy because they also
4:20 am
say there were 2202 minutes on the russia scandal. zero for the collusion report. this is a big story you would think, right? >> particularly on the nbc side, steve. i will be quick on this. if a story is reported on msnbc by its news division and then the nbc nightly news, which is watched by anywhere from 8 to 10 million people a night, and you don't cover a story that your own network broke earlier that afternoon, that is the bias of omission. and as the most insidious kind of bias that's out there, steve. the kind when you don't even hear about a story that absolutely should be your lead. steve: it is curious what's going on. joe, thank you very much for joining us live. >> all right. have a good weekend. steve: 7:20 now in new york city. a major twist in the case of a green beret charged with killing a taliban bombmaker. his lawyer is now accusing the investigator of stolen valor. could the charges now be dropped against that green beret's case? plus, sources tell fox news

4:47 am
president trump has said and done both as a candidate and as president, he walked into the oval office shortly after taking the oath of office and he restored the mexico city policy that was begun by ronald reagan, that prohibits the use of tax dollars to take innocent human life overseas through family planning programs, u.n. programs he has restored conscious rights for christians and others of faith who under obamacare were forced to violate their conscious and their faith by providing medical services like abortion that they objected to. he has appointed pro-life and strict constructionist judges, including neil gorsuch and brett kavanaugh to the supreme court. and the other thing is, ainsley, and this is the thing that i really appreciate, is how the president is beginning to use what teddy roosevelt called the bully pulpit of his office. this is the most consequential office in
4:48 am
human history through the words that he speaks and through the power of what he says in determining right and wrong as a matter of moral clarity, he can move the needle in the culture and he can affect what legislatures and congress do. i appreciate that. ainsley: ralph, a lot of people voted for him because of the wall there are a lot of evangelicals who voted for him because of his pro-life stance and because of his ability to appoint conservative judges. you say that the right to life is just equally as important as the wall. why do you say that? >> well, because i think if you look at the evangelical constituency, it was 27% of the electorate in 2016 and 2018. if you add in pro-life catholics, it gets up to 35% of the electorate. donald trump won 81% of their votes. they were half of all the votes he received. donald trump isn't in the white house today without the strength of that vote. and if that vote had not turned out the way it did in 2018, not only would the republicans have lost the house, they would have lost
4:49 am
the senate and it wouldn't have even been close. so, these are voters that, to be clear, are not ultimately partisan in their affiliation. they are driven by a set of issues. they are driven by a set of moral concerns. and at the top of that list is creating a cultura culture of life that protects the dignity and sanctity of every human life from conception to natural death including the unborn. and by the democrats pursuing this extremist late-term abortion and even infanticide agenda, which gallup, ainsley, found last year only 13% of the american people. ainsley: that's right. >> favor abortions in the third trimester i think they are helping president trump. ainsley: most pro-choicers don't agree with that. >> they don't. ainsley: thank you have a great weekend. >> you too, ainsley. ainsley: forget building walls, beto o'rourke wants to pay to tear them down. diamond and silk are here to react to that next. the left claims victory
