jillian: good morning. you are watching "fox and friends first". rob: thanks for getting up early. a fox news alert. and iranian crew removing an unexploded line from one of those two oil tankers just yesterday. the us blaming iran for the attacks on foreign ships in the gulf of oman. jillian: to note that iran is denying involvement at this point. >> reporter: two more oil tankers under attack in the critical passageway in the strait of hormuz, tehran is denying responsibility. here's what they say, quote, iran categorically reject the unfounded claim with regard to 13 tanker incidents and condemns it in the strongest possible terms. they also added this, us and regional allies must stop warmongering and put it in mischievous plots and operations in the region.
the president releases that shot showing revolutionary guard removing an unexploded mine. one of the two tankers targeted, mike pompeo says this can only be the work of one perpetrator. >> this assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise to execute the operation. recent similar attacks are shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication. >> reporter: one month ago the admin straighten blamed attacks on four different -- the uss bainbridge in the persian gulf to assist this attack rescuing 20 crew members from the tankers. and the us and iran amid deteriorating relations. the us does not see conflicts that will defend its course. japan's defense minister
responding they have no intention of sending japanese troops to respond to this attack but it comes as chinese president and the -- xi jinping met with hassan rouhani over the weekend but things are moving in the wrong direction. rob: we will dive into this later in the show. jillian: as the world watches to see what iran will do next fox news contributor says the president is squeezing the regime, the us should take action. >> the president made clear he is prepared to negotiate but they are being honest and in the past we are cuddling up with what iran has done and i think the secretary is right, they are feeling the squeeze and they should be called out. there probably needs to be a response to this. what we want is for iran to stop its mischief in the middle east and we don't get there by not being honest about what it is
doing. i think sometimes people say a tough reaction make negotiations with possible. in vietnam we bombed hanoi and they came to the table. sometimes you have to be serious with people in the secretary is making a calculation. we need to be honest and call them out and no use having negotiations if they are not going to be honest and we are going to look the other way at their bad actions. rob: iran gave world powers 60 days to comply with the obama era nuclear deal or the regime would resume its uranium enrichment. jillian: white house press secretary sarah sanders is stepping down. she will leave the administration by the end of the month to spend more time with her children, not clear who will replace her. her father, former arkansas governor mike huckabee says she enjoyed her time in the white house. >> one thing i can tell you, she loves this president, she has been absolutely loyal to him and will continue to be and one thing she's looking forward to
doing is to be able to set the record straight about what a remarkable person he is. jillian: donald trump raises his longest-serving press secretary. >> he has done an incredible job. we have been through a lot and she is tough, she is a special person, she has been so great, she has such heart. thank you for an outstanding job and thank you. thank you. jillian: the president encouraged her to follow in her dad's footsteps and run for governor of arkansas. rob: the white house firing back every watchdog recommend kellyanne conway be removed from her position saying the office of special counsel unprecedented action against kellyanne conway are deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process. the agency suspected conway be
removed and accountable president for violating the hatch act, prohibiting federal workers from engaging in elections and making negative comments about democratic candidates. jillian: the difference between right and wrong, nancy pelosi slamming donald trump for being open to opposition research from foreign governments. >> might want to listen. nothing wrong with listening. >> what that kind of interference in our elections? >> it is not interference, it is information, i would take it. jillian: policy criticizing his moral character over those comments. >> so against any sense of decency that he does not know the difference between right and wrong and that is the nicest thing i can say about him. everybody in this country should be appalled by what the president said. this one borders on so totally unethical that he doesn't realize it.
jillian: donald from responding to criticism from the left, quote, i meet and talk to foreign governments every day. should i merely call the fbi about the meetings? how ridiculous, i would never be trusted again. rob: nancy pelosi said this about mitch mcconnell. >> mister mccall takes great pride in calling himself the grim reaper, as leader of the senate. rob: mcconnell surprising in a surprising way. >> the grim reaper, when it comes to the socialist agenda that they have been ginning up over in the house with overwhelming democratic support and sending over to america. rob: essentially agreeing with pelosi and the grim reaper analysis. pelosi accuses mcconnell purposely trying to stall measures in congress like gun violence prevention.
jillian: i liked it better when janice was inside with us but she is not. >> reporter: i wish i was inside with you because 59 °. that is a little crazy. the good news is it is not humid so my hairdo could have saved it. out here, rodney atkins will perform on fox square and we will salute the army, it is their birthday and the president's birthday. all good things coming up. let's look at the maps and i will show you how chilly it is. 59, 6:00 am, 60 ° for the concert. dry and cool. bring yourself a light jacket. 60 °, feels cooler than that, 46 in cincinnati, the cold front went through, we will have showers in the forecast this
weekend because we are into this trough situation where it will be unsettled over the next couple days over the eastern half of the country through the central plains as well for father's day and we could see more heavy rain in areas that don't need to see more rain on the mississippi river valley. 91 in houston, 77 in portland, we will get up to 76 with mostly sunny skies today. it is chilly. make sure you have your light jacket. excited about the concert, rodney atkins coming up and barbecue. rob: get out of here with your chilly comment. it is fantastic outside. jillian: men and women have different variations of what chile is. rob: it is cold when it is under 90 °. jillian: your hair does look great. rob: look at the next one. thanks, 10 minutes after the hour. the hour, california, took one
step closer to giving illegal immigrants free healthcare, florida is about to ban sanctuary cities which our country is very divided on illegal immigration. how is it we can all meet in the middle and get -- george rodriguez ways in next. jillian: a roller coaster. look at that. coming back on friday. logy make. the visionary lexus nx. lease the 2019 nx 300 for $359/month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. my mom washes the dishes... ...before she puts them in the dishwasher. so what does the dishwasher do? cascade platinum does the work for you, prewashing and removing stuck-on foods, the first time. wow, that's clean! cascade platinum.
police are searching for the 10th and final suspect. you can see him there. he is also wanted in pennsylvania accused of shooting a man in the back in 2018. he is recovering at a boston hospital. >> the mystery deep into the dominican republic after another american dies on vacation. lela cox founded in her hotel bedroom one day after her 53rd birthday. the us embassy says she died of a heart attack but her family is suspicious of that claim. her son says she would still be alive today if she didn't go on that trip. eight americans have done that this year. jillian: two states, two different priorities. ron desantis will find a bill banning sanctuary cities in the sunshine state. rob: gavin newsom ready to make a sanctuary state the first to cover healthcare costs for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants so will there ever be
a solution here, a border solution that works for everybody? jillian: george rodriguez joined the reagan administration and joins us live, thanks for your time. easy for a lot of people to say isn't there a middle ground? but is there a middle ground? >> i am not sure. we have reached a point where the conservative and liberal gap is so wide it just reflects these two states reflect that gap, and it keeps getting wider. ron desantis i applaud him because he is thinking of citizens first, thinking of lawful legal american citizens first. in california a few moments ago you had the clip of nancy pelosi asking if donald trump knows the difference between truth and lies. i wonder if they know the difference between legal and illegal immigration.
rob: when you ask people, you find a lot of compassion for the dreamers and compassion for people that have been in the country, giving them a pathway to citizenship but when you talk about 150,000 a month coming in right now. i would imagine you get a different answer. >> exactly right. what we have done for the past 20 years, the past 25 years is reward illegal immigration. we did it during the reagan administration although many of us were opposed, did with the amnesty. now we are providing amnesty, providing more amnesty, we provided amnesty through da ca and folks that have been affected by storms in central america. we can't continue to reward illegal immigration because the more you do the more you get. jillian: these states that have
laws requiring law enforcement to cooperate with ice, a small list, alabama, arizona, georgia, iowa, north carolina, mississippi, missouri, tennessee and texas and another graphic showing $98 million is the estimated cost to provide health insurance to illegals. look at the number, the fact that more and more states starting to get on board getting drivers licenses to illegal immigrants or seems like there is so much more they can utilize and access. >> let's talk about the drivers license issue. these folks will get drivers license, hopefully they will get insurance but the fact of the matter is they are still here illegally in the united states. you are rewarding folks that came into the country without permission and as long as we continue to do that we are going to continue to get more.
rob: a lot of asylum-seekers, 90% not showing up for court, combined with free college and a lot of other free things. thank you, appreciate it. 15 minutes after the hour. the us pointing a finger at iran after two oil tankers are attacked just yesterday. iran denying that claim but this morning there is new proof, new video, how should the us response? daniel davis will weigh in on that coming up next. >> she suffers from liabilities. >> i don't want to sound rude or flippant but good riddance. jillian: there is handed out at the white house and as you just saw, the left in the media wasting no time taking aim. we are coming back. guys, get in here!
who's a good boy? it's me. me, me, me. hey guys! you're gonna want to get in on this. i know how to those guys in here. let's pause the internet on their devices. wohhh? huhhhh? [ grumbling ] all: sausages! mmm, mmmm. bon appetite. make time for what matters. pause your wifi with xfinity xfi and see the secret life of pets 2 in theaters.
rob: the trump administration blaming the iranian regime protection two oil tankers in the gulf of oman. they have brand-new video. jillian: iran says they had nothing to do with the latest act of aggression so where does the us go? here is senior fellow and military expert lieutenant colonel daniel davis. thank you for joining us this friday morning. what do you think the united states should do? >> we have to decide what we want to accomplish. there is no question iran is a malign actor and they have been doing all kinds of things in the middle east but if our intent is to moderate the behavior and keep stability in the area maximum pressure by itself will not accomplish that. if we are strangling the economy
and not giving them that, these will increase and this increases the chance for war, doesn't decrease it. we have to be careful not to push too hard. rob: a tweet from the iranian foreign minister, the us immediately jumps to make allegations against iran without a shred of circumstantial evidence only makes it abundantly clear that they are moving to plan b, sabotage diplomacy including by shinzo abe and cover-up economic terrorism against iran. they are saying we set this whole thing up knowing abe is coming in to talk to iran, the we will up these ships trying to make them look bad. >> the bottom line is we need to go slow here. not as though there are not other actors in the region that would love to see the united states go to war on their behalf against iran. we need to make sure we don't inadvertently go too fast and see circumstantial evidence and say they did and take action and then later find out there is another actor, saudi arabia or
another group like iran and we acted in their behalf and that would be really bad but we have to avoid that at all costs. if we do something like that we we the ones who take the brunt of any military action from iran and that doesn't help our cause at all. jillian: how about the timing of it? >> i am suspicious because a had gone with the approval of donald trump. he took a personal message there and it seems a little odd that iran would choose that moment to make things look bad for themselves when they are trying to get iran or japan's help. i'm a little skeptical. rob: they are trying to say we are pinning it on them trying to make it look bad. 244 years and we want you to tell us why you chose to serve the country. >> i first joined as a private in 1985 because i love this country and it was an honor for
me to serve. it is something i'm very proud to have worn the army uniform. there is little i would do to measure up to that because it is a sacrifice many of my friends made the ultimate sacrifice and i remember them on this day but it is something i don't regret in the least and i'm grateful for the opportunity. jillian: thank you for your service today and every day. >> my pleasure, thanks for having me. jillian: the stage is set but is it really? 23 democrats running for president and only 20 making the cut for the first debate. who is in? who is out? we will tell you. >> once you serve in the military it is in your dna and once you get out of the military it is hard to find that we found that. jillian: national bourbon day and flag day. meet the veteran who is making american flags. jillian: the folks who got this

there embassy and kicked him out, seeking asylum for years, serving a 50 week sentence in england for skipping out on bail. jillian: sarah sanders is stepping down in the mainstream media wasting no time slamming her work. >> she suffers from diabetes. >> i will not miss her. >> i literally and figuratively will not miss her either. jillian: many democrats slamming sanders online, joyce says thank you, we will miss your daily press briefings, oh, wait. rob: a crowded field of
democrats set for the first debate of the 2020 campaign. jillian: they are rushing to break from the pack and set themselves apart. aishah hasnie joins us live and we now know who is in and out. >> let's look at the candidate to qualify for the first big debate. joe biden is in the mix, bernie sanders, elizabeth warren, lots of big names. here's who is out. montana governor is among the four left behind, he is challenging the decision claiming he did meet the polling threshold. we will see what happens. the stage isn't even set yet but several democrats going in and taking shots at the white house, former head secretary julian castro calling for kellyanne conway to be fired for violating the hatch act, something he has also been guilty of and doubling down on his calls for impeachment.
>> a few years from now, 10 years of from now or 20 years from now we are going to look back on this as americans and say what was wrong with that president? the americans want a president they believe has integrity. who will put the national interest above his own personal interests. jillian: there is one democrat contenders standing out for saying no to putting a political rival behind bars. >> when pattern of america should seek to avoid is prosecuting past leaders and presidents and imprisoning them. that is something america has never fallen into and that is the way i would hope we would proceed. jillian: andrew yang offering a different perspective. you will not feel 20 people on stage at once. 10 one night.

rob: democrats blasting amazon for its new credit card exclusively for prime members. jillian: tracy carrasco joined us to explain. >> reporter: alexandria ocasio cortez and bernie sanders are accusing amazon of getting greedy. the amazon credit builder is for people with bad or no credit. amazon hopes its customers raise or rebuild their credit score. the card comes with perks including 5% cash back for online purchases, no annual fee. the biggest downfall is its high interest rate. sanders tweeting can you believe it? amazon is issuing credit cards with 28% interest rates to help people with bad credit.
this kind of greed makes the poor even poorer. alexandria ocasio cortez and i intend to outlaw it. corporations will have to survive on a 15% on interest rate. joe biden weighing and not about the card but on amazon's tax rates. the former vice president tweeting i have nothing against amazon but no company pulling in billions of dollars of profits should pay lower tax rate than firefighters and teachers. we need to reward work, not as well, amazon firing back tweeting we pay $2.6 billion in corporate taxes since 2016. we pay every penny we owe. congress designed tax laws to encourage companies to reinvest in the american economy. we have to hundred billion dollars in investment since 2011 and 300,000 us jobs. i assume vice president biden's complaint is with the tax code, not amazon. back to the credit card, amazon's partner says it provides a new segment of the market.
