golden noodle owners out there. jillian: i'm sorry, what happened there? rob: but can you imagine being the pet you? are thinking it's a party. i'm ready for the weekend. i'm going out with my girls. jillian: have a good day, everyone. ♪ ♪ ainsley: a little rascal flatts on this monday morning, august 19th. hope you had a great weekend. thank you for joining us. steve: brian is off today. griff jenkins is in his seat. griff: thank you. good morning. ainsley: griff is a big surfer. i watched it on "fox & friends first." we will show it. griff: i have the best job in the country. roll outs of bed and talk about sipperring. we have steve's steaks on the grill later.
steve: first day of grilling contest. ainsley: great summer recipes. favorite recipe that involved grilling and yours is can you say? steve: steve's steaks adopted from the happy cookbook, of course. ainsley: what steak do you prefer? are you sirloin or porter house? steve: i like the fillet or new york strip or as we call it the kansas city strip because i'm from kansas. cheesy loaded fully skill let french fries on the grill. griff: you showed me a picture. it looks fantastic. steve: thank you for joining us. the conventional wisdom is if the economy is doing well the incumbent president of the united states usually gets elected suddenly after a very wild to say the least week on wall street. over the weekend do you know what people are talking about in the economy not doing well. watch this.
>> recession jitters. president trump said to be rattled economic alarm bells cause a wild week on wall street. >> there are indicators that the u.s. could be headed for a recession. >> there are some rough waters ahead, maybe a recession. >> fears of a coming recession spiked on the heels of a key economic indicator called inverted yield curve. >> the yield curve has inverted before every u.s. recession since 1955. >> they say potential recession on horizon. >> recession. >> recession. >> recession. steve: so you get the idea. we brought in an expert who knows about the recession. charles payne. knows about recessions. ainsley: so obvious what they are doing. they do not want him to win again and do not like to the economy is doing well. >> the ceo of bank of america said it best only fear of recession we have fear of recession. owner thing that can happen
is fear jugser naught everyone believes it's going to be derailed. i hate to say it to the degree the media almost did that in december. some people do it dlicketsly. there is no economic data out there that suggests we are on the cusp of a recession. steve: they have suggested the inverted yield curve where have you more money on the short-term bond than the long-term bond. >> two and 10 year has inverted 24 hours. it has to be longer than 24 hours. we saw retail sales sore. absolutely sore significantly better than anyone participated. we saw an earnings report from walmart absolutely remarkable. walmart is a great proxy. not because they did almost $131 billion in sales in three months every american goes there one third of the shoppers have $100,000 income. walmart lower end. no. that's americana. steve: they are america's number one grocery store as well. >> that's another big seller for them. bottom line is it seems to
be a deliberate attempt by many people to make this economy go into recession. steve: you mean talk it down. >> talk it down. griff: clearly a strong economy is key to president trump's re-election. >> sure. griff: going after it. yet larry kudlow playing down fears of recession. take a listen to what he had to say. >> consumers, first of all, they are working. the employment numbers are terrific. second of all, they are working at much higher wages, third of all, they are spending and, fourth of all, interestingly, they are saving even while they are spending. that's about as good as it gets and i notice at the end of the week a lot of the wall street firms have been marking up their economic growth forecast. i think we are in pretty good shape. ainsley: the president said he was very optimistic about the outlook. look at walmart's numbers they are through the roof just a few days ago. larry kudlow went on to say don't be afraid of this optimism. the truth is unemployment is
down, 4011 ks are up. wages are up. lower tax rate. they are rolling back regulations. the economy is good, right. >> the economy ebbs and flows, but the idea that we are going to fall off of a cliff right now is far-fetched. on friday the atlanta fed marked up third quarter from 1.8% to 2.2%. to say larry kudlow's point some people see the economy doing better not worse right now. griff: what's the difference though because steve mentioned the inverted yield curve no one seems to know unless you are a economist, flight as i understand it it's different when it was a marker during high inflation vs. low inflation. why does that matter? >> a lot of things are different right now. this is the first time in history that governments around the world are borrowing money and you have to pay them to hold your money. in other words, if i'm germany and you give germany 10 bucks, in 10 years, 30 years they will give you back $9.50. i'm exaggerating and trying
to make the point. it's odd. have you never heard that before. what happens is, when that's the case, guess where you go you go to a country like america that's actually paying a yield. so billions, if not trillions of dollars are pouring into our bonds. that's driving the yield down. this is where the inversion comes from. it's amazing. $16 trillion with a negative yield around the world that money wants to find a place where they can get some return. not to have to pay you for holding the money. steve: something else happened on friday. you mentioned something that came in on friday. the president actually had dinner, apparently, out at bedminster in new jersey with the guy who runs apple which is one of the most valuable companies in the world. he made a case -- we heard yesterday as the president was heading back to washington that tim cook made a case for how the trade war, such as it is with china is, impacting apple because they have a really strong competitor not involved in it. listen. here's the president. >> i had a very good meeting
for tim cook. i have a lot of respect for tim cook. tim was talking to me about tariffs. you know, one of the things that he made a good case is that samsung is their number one competitor and samsung is not paying tariffs because they are based in south korea and it's tough for apple to pay tariffs if they are competing with a very good company that's not. steve: because apple makes most of their products in china and samsung number one rival makes them around the world, not china. >> apple is in an awkward position. and tim apple or tim cook. [laughter] >> you know, he is trying to make the case he also said, tim cook himself said earlier in the week that apple is bringing back thousands of jobs in america. hey, if you want this exclusion. if you want to be called out of, this you also have step up and be a good american citizen, not just a company that sells products to americans. i think you will see apple bring more of their production back to this country. by the way, that's how any business can get around the
terrorist. it's not a tariff against business. steve: make it here. >> how about making some of this stuff in america? how did we get in this predicament in the first place. you want to avoid tariffs? hire americans. that's pretty simple. that's what's going to happen. ainsley: there is this business owner in california she put on twitter emotional speech about why she is having to shut down her shop in california because of the homelessness she is cleaning up needles. she had a message from gavin newsom. watch what she posted on video. this video is for gavin newsom. i want to tell you what happens when i get to work. i have to clean up the poop and the pee off of my doorstep. i have to clean up the syringes. i have to politely ask the people who i care for. i care for these people who are homeless, to move your tents. you want to make it comfortable for everybody except people who work hard and mak now we have to change that due to your lies. what are you going to do for us? steve: she has a business sacramento 15 years has to leave and close up shop.
>> that's why when i talk about markets and investing. the first thing i look at you have to have stability and peace. that's why violence, drug epidemics, all of those things, that's your foundation. you can't have prosperity without having that first. and, you know, listen, i understand where she is coming from. we see it to a degree here in new york city. and this whole thing about being woke as a politician and you have got to remember who is actually generating the income. who is generating the tax dollars. if you really want to be a great governor. if you want to be a great mayor, you've got to realize there is certain -- have you got to have the businesses generate the money so can you do really good things for people. i think california has gone so far left that, you know, listen, they got silicon valley, they have hollywood. they have a strong tax base. other than that their buy if you are occasion between poor and rich is atrocious. people talk about the genome
of you will income. they have land of milk and honey. steve: how did they wind up there. >> you go past the rubicon and promise so many things to so many people you can't get back to a real smart fiscal policy low taxes. you couldn't get through the transition. place like venezuela maybe someone has the best of up tension. promise so much to too many people for not doing anything, this is what happens. you have to pay for it. griff: we reached out to the governor and did not get a response from gavin newsom about this particular owner. they have said for a long time, as goes california goes the rest of the country. we have seen that with plastic straws and plastic bags and stuff. are the problems in california going to end up. >> that's corporate virtue signaling and things like that. no, california is losing out to states like texas, utah. just like new york is losing out to north carolina, virginia. florida. i mean, the bottom line is every state is not california. in fact, many states are doing the right thing for citizens and creating
prosperity for everyone. ainsley: it's fun i couldn't say that you go on her twitter account she blocks and chooses who gets to see it. see the comments of what people are saying. people are posting penske truck saying move out of california. another lady said i grew up in california my whole life. i'm thinking about moving. another person had a lot of trashed in the picture and tents and said clean it up, gavin. >> to that point i read it somewhere. i didn't get a chance to investigate it. usually i investigate these things before i mention them it. is intriguing, it's true, a u-haul truck from texas to california cost 100 percent more than a u-haul truck from california to texas. that's how much demand there is right now to get the heck out of that state. steve: that woman you saw in the twitter video, a business owner elizabeth novak is going to be joining us two hours from now 8:15 in person. at least on the tv. >> charles: have a good day. steve: charles rushed. in he was supposed to be on
at 6:30. >> markets may be up big this morning. steve: i heard there was a recession coming. >> just saying. ainsley: charles, behind you, is jillian. jillian: let's start off with a story out of florida. this is a fox news alert. the search intensifying overnight for two firefighters missing off the coast of florida. justin walker and brian mcclooney were last seen leaving for a fishing trip friday morning from port canaveral. their families returnin prayinga safe return. >> anyone going to get through this is my brother a u.s. navy, fallujah. he has been sailing all his life. >> covered 20,000 square miles by air and sea. >> severe storms sweep the nation bringing mild weather from the midwest to to the northeast. at least nine people hurt including seven kids in pennsylvania when lightning struck a tree sending it crashing on to a tent. take a look at this.

any other country on earth. steve: there you have got presidential candidate senator bernie sanders unveiling the sweeping criminal justice plan. here to break down details is the policy director for the conservative partnership institute. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: before we get into the some of the nuts and bolts of what bernie is suggesting, why is he suggesting it now? >> he is about to do a sweep through south carolina where the large voting demographic of democrats is african-american and this is the group most disproportionally impacted by mass incarceration. steve: all right. let's take a look at some of the points of bernie's criminal justice plan. end mandatory sentencing minimums and three strikes law. abolish the death penalty. legalize pot. end solitary confinement. legalize safe injection sites and guarantee living wages. all right. let's start with abolish the death penalty. is that popular in south carolina? >> i don't know about south carolina but it is very polarizing throughout the nation. there is a lot of
interesting criminal justice reform. we saw this when president trump signed into law the first step act at the end of last year. no democrats give him credit for that, of course. but, bernie in true fashion has taken popular ideas and just taken them a little bit too far. safe injection needle sites too far. steve: what does that mean. >> using iv drugs and go to this place and what do they do? give you clean syringes. >> they give you clean syringes and be there in case you overdose. is the idea of safe injection sites. steve: that's a good idea. >> according to bernie sanders is it is. steve: it would keep people from spreading disease i would imagine. >> and keeps them safe, i guess, when they overdose. steve: in the meanwhile andrew yang who we saw dance dancing a little bit ago has this proposal. listen to this. >> i'm going to mass pardon everyone in jail for a nonviolent marijuana offense and high five them on the
way out it. makes no sense that people are in jail for something that's legal in other parts of the country. steve: what do you think about that past pardons over marijuana offenses nonviolent. >> most important part the high five on the way out of mass incarceration. that's as much as we have heard from andrew yang pardon and high five. steve: why would he be making this suggestion now. >> you know, he is fighting for relevance right now. again, he is going in for the pot-smoking demographic, i think it is what we refer to it nonviolent drug offenses. this polls well in parts of the democratic party and andrew yang is push for that vote. steve: okay. meanwhile i was just out in orange county, california, it turns out that has been a rather red district for a very long time and now for the first time in orange county california, which includes newport beach, democrats outnumber republicans. and just by, about 900. a little less than that what do you make of that? >> you can't take anything for granted if you are a
republican. you always have to fight for those votes regardless of where they are, about you i would say census data tells us people are fleeing california, republicans in particular 2016 and 2017 the state lost 120,000 people. over 53% of residents are thinking about pulling the plug on living in california. steve: what do you make of our lead story talked about how all the news over the weekend sounds like we are on the verge of a recession given the fact it's been wild on wall street we are in this trade tussle with china. what's going on? >> you know, uncertainty and markets respond to it, right? i think a lot of this is narrative. you push us in one direction. confidence goes that way as well. all the other indicators say we are doing great. president trump has put us in a good spot. steve: i guess we are done talking about russia and collusion and obstruction we have. >> we have to find something new. steve: we do because we presidential race. looks like joe biden is still holding firm at number
one but elizabeth warren is surging. >> she is. she is now in second place. again, we haven't seen these two on the debate stage together. we haven't seen them face off. they have a long standing personal animosity towards each other. steve: oh, wait. tell me about that. >> bankruptcy bill joe biden was pushing in 2005 and 2002. elizabeth warren then harvard professor elizabeth warren went after him saying he was antiwoman, anti-single mother. should be interesting. steve: did i not realize that. >> get the popcorn. steve: rachel conservative policy institute thank you for joining us live. >> my pleasure. steve: meanwhile, that movie, the hunt, could still be on. the controversial movie's professor wants to produce it even though the studio suspended it. actor zachery bryant here to call out hollywood's hypocrisy and that's coming up next.

griff: quick headlines forever you now. president trump condemning as he weigh as troop withdrawal in afghanistan. >> we are there for one reason, we don't want that to be a laboratory, okay? it can't be a laboratory for terror. griff: about 14,000 u.s. service members remain stationed in afghanistan after nearly 20 years at war. and this: a new report says two russian nuclear monitoring stations went silent in the days after an explosion. an official tells the "wall street journal" the site experienced communication and network problems. the blast is believed to have been caused by nuclear missile testing earlier this month. radiation levels increasing 20 times above normal right after the blast. ainsley? ainsley: thank you so much, griff. a controversial film featuring elites hunting down so-called deplorables was supposed to be put on hold. >> every year a bunch of elites kidnap normal folks like us. >> where did they get from
you. >> wyoming. >> mississippi. >> orlando. >> and hunt us for sport. >> now the producer still wants that film released. here to weigh in is former home improvement star zachery thai brian. >> hi, ainsley, thank you for having me. ainsley: what do you think about this? they pulled the film and producer saying timing was off but we might release it later on. >> yeah, i mean, i think they probably pulled it because of those shootings out of the gate. i mean, at the end of the day, they have a lot of money into this and i'm sure they want to recoup as much as possible if not make money on it. and, again, i'm a free market guy. so i say put it out into the marketplace. let's see how it does. you know, promoting political violence is dangerous, if ask you me. and it seems like they kind of always accuse us of what they are actually doing, you know. they tell us that we are more divided now than ever. but if you look at it, you
know, have you snoop dogg that shot trump in one of his music videos. you had kathy griffin hold a severed head of our president. it seems a lot of violence or rhetoric is coming from hollywood. so, and then you look at a movie like this, i guess it's good to know how they really feel about us. they dehuman nice us, calling us racists and bigots. when you dehumanize somebody like that, why not hunt them? ainsley: encouraging violence is what they are doing in this movie. this is an excerpt from "the hunt" watch this. it says at least the hunt coming suspect nothing better than going out to the manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables. so they actually use the word deplorables. they are not even trying to hide it. >> i guests that's the political climate we are in right now. for me, it's, you know, it's kind of sad. but what are you going to do? you know, i think we all
have the decision on whether or not we want to see this film i'm a free market guy. there is a sense, too, one the elitist are the bad guys. the one thing i do want to say is in my town specifically, they are always, you know, whether they are fighting for gun control and a lot of them just want guns eradicated yet they make all these movies with guns and killings in them. they are all about, you know, redistributing the wealth or the top 1%. we are in a business where you pay the lead actor $20 million and everybody else gets paid scraps. it's definitely do as i say, not as i do. i would love to see them pay everybody and let everybody have proper participation as if you were in a socialist i can time government. they won't do it. it's hard to take them seriously will. ainsley: what do you know about this professor. he worked for harvey
weinstein and he made a lot of money on paranormal activity. he will spent $15,000 and made 200 million. do you know him? do yodo you think universal is afraid to lose him? they want this video or film released because is he such a big money maker? >> yeah. i think there is definitely a part of that i don't know him on a personal level. but i do know he has a really, really good track record. the horror space is definitely his genre and what he knows best. yes, there is definitely -- i mean, i don't even want to know how much money they have into this budgetary wise but i'm sure it's quite a bit. i'm sure us talking about it right now makes them happy because the controversy, as they say, bad publicity is good publicity. but, yes, i would suggest everybody go out and see a really good film that we have out called skin right now with jamie bell. we have won a ton of awards. yes, i think it's definite a
connection between the studio. again, they wants to be in the green. and they want to put this out and see what they can do. now we all have the chance whether or not we want to support the film or not. ainsley: you are right. we have the choice to do it. do you think it will be released eventually? >> my gut says yes. this town is about one thing and one thing only and that's money. so i would say yes. you know, i think the moral glart hollywood has been gone for a long time. ainsley: all right, zachery. thanks for joining us. >> sure. thank you. ainsley: everyone go see "skin" '2 minutes after the top of the hour. officers in a fight over the weekend. mayor's police union says de blasio is to blame. we have an officer here next sounding off. ♪ under measure ♪

[laughter] ainsley: brian, i hope you are in bed. >> steve has been doing this since i was in the secret service. this is my fourth career. steve: almost seems like it. look at the cover much the "new york post" today. chaos runs the streets.
it tells the story about how on friday night here in new york city three police officers injured, assailants in one of the housing complex at bedford marci houses targeted cops with hurled bottles, other debris which police believed tossed out of the windows from the roorooftops there are so many police who feel like this administration doesn't have their back. >> yeah. steve, these stories make me sick. you know, we had an incident before i came on with the police department but was well known because it was in the area i had worked. where a box -- smeer, a bag of cement, dry cement was dropped and killed the police officer. they called it -- it had a name. it was called airmail. they always used to teach you when i was a cop before you walked into hiewsing project for a vertical. you walk up and down the stairwells and check each floor. they would tell you always, always look up because you don't know what's going to come from the top.
having said that this disgusting gross, unforgivable anti-cop atmosphere permeating down from the top of new york city is a danger to every cop out there. and what's even worse about it is the failed communist mayor of new york, de blasio, he understands this is not a dumb guy. believe me, i would love to say it but he is not. he is not stupid. he understands using the cops as a whipping boy is a political tactic for him to gain favor amongst his far left base. in other words, what i'm telling you, is he putting cops in danger. i have no doubt about that with this defactor screw the cops attitude he has. he is doing it strictly for his own political career. not if it was any better for f. it wasn't for politics. only worse now that he is only doing it for his political career. griff: what happened, dan over the weekend not the first time police deescalation situation and have to respond. that's why the new york police benevolent association tweeted this out
they say how are cops supposed to do our job in this environment? when will nypd our mayor de blasio stand up and say enough is enough. chaos is running the streets. this is outrageous. we're lucky, it wasn't worse. your point. >> fair point you make there, griff. this is not the first time. not like mayor de blasio get in office and do things against the cops. i get that the problem i have here is since mayor de blasio is in office. it's affected the psychology of the workforce. i mean, think about it. imagine where we work every time you came on the air every single day someone told you are doing it wrong, griff, you are terrible, you are not, of course. you are awful at this. eventually you goal to work and do what you have to do but you just can't stand it. nine suicides of police officers this year? i'm not pinning those on de blasio. i am simply saying i know cops. i talk to them. not all of them but a good lot of them that i know are miserable working for this mayor. they have no leadership at
all. and they are putting these cops in danger every day because the word gets out on the street that the cops with demoralized and not do anything and see incidents like this happen. ainsley: we talked on friday there were going to be protestprotests in portland that happened over the weekend. the mayor of portland said it was the worse case scenario has been avoided because no one died. at least andy ngo i was watching an interview with him. he said that's how the mayor decides that it's peaceful because there weren't any deaths. look at this video there were six people that had injuries. there were -- there was concrete that was thrown. metal and wooden polls con iconfiscated. shields were confiscated. what do you think? >> >> let me get this straight. your standard for success is hey, well, nobody died. i mean is, that for real? is this guy serious? excuse me. talking about the mayor. serious? this is insane. the police chief down there is completely failed.
i believe they sit in the same role. completely failed. this is a terror group. there is no doubt about it. by every measure of what a terror group would be, antifa fits it. they use violence and intimidation to harass people. this is what they do. and by the way this is a group of unbelievable losers like i have never seen in my life. the thing about losers is they attack in packs. losers and cowards. they are not packs of wolves. they are like packs of angry poodles. these are people with no prospects for any job anywhere. they would be full-time s'mores roasters in their mom's basement eating s'mores because they would have no prospects of anything else. so they go out in the street and they cause chaos. this is a terror group, nothing more. they were trying to hit people with hammers. they were chasing that young lady around stalking her like a bunch of animals. this is a terror group no doubt about it. something needs to be done. steve: dan bongino that is not the way a lot of people described antifa yesterday
on tv. listen to this. >> violence, street confrontationconfrontations in d oregon. 13 people injured. 6 injured. more than 1,000 right wing demonstrators and counter protesters descended on the downtown area. >> protest not guilty middle of what appear to be a right wing protester and they are doing all they can to push him out. steve: had a little problem with the audio right there. what did you make of the coverage regarding antifa. >> they are not counter protesters, okay? you have been in the media a long time. other outlets do this it's called gaslighting, tell a lie, tell a lie confidently and isolate people from the truth and can you get people to believe anything. antifa are not counter protesters. it is an anti first amendment. that's what it stands for. they tell you it stands for anti-fascist. it really is anti-first amendment. they are anti-first amendment ultra violent terror group that wants to see you lens people's free speech. they are not counter
protesters. i don't know what the other group was about. i totally, completely 100 percent disavow violence. it has no place in a political conversation ever. period, full stop. on any side. and that will never ever ever back away from that no matter what. >> antifa, i'm not saying nobody else does anything wrong, i'm saying the evidence of antifa and ultra violent routine is everywhere. stop calling them counter protesters. griff: there is far right protesters on one side. proud boys whatever it is. and then there is antifa. we have been seeing. this as i was talking this weekend trying to sort of lay it out, the antifa folks really found donald trump as a target. and so we have seen this escalation and the problem is that you have mayor ted wheeler in portland saying it was largely peaceful. you have police that are incident. the antifa people are not getting hurt. it's people like you saw on that bus getting hammered and pepper sprayed. the question now is what needs to be done? >> yeah. i'm sorry i screwed up the
mayor before. my apologies for that what needs to be done, griff, the group, one, you have to actually police your city. the mayor has completely let down the people of portland, instead of acknowledging the problem he is involved that 365 gas lighting effort. i saw your piece this weekend it was a good one. you can check the video yourself, don't take my word for it. antifa out in the street actually directing traffic. i'm not kidding. telling people and i don't mean directing traffic. telling people you can't drive this way or that way. this is complete urban chaos. these people have to be immediately told, can i just add one more things, but, the giuliani approach when i was a cop was this. i have said this a couple times. you throw a bottle, you throw a rock, you get eard. the second person who throws a bottle or rock they get arrested, too. i promise you, because i was at these things, there was no third person who threw the bottle. it didn't happen.
because they were already in jail the first two. the mayor needs to take the giuliani approach. steve: all right. dan bongino joining us today from florida where he says he is not a morning person but he seems pretty awake. griff: thanks, dan. >> i only slept two hours my smoke alarm went off at 2:15. ainsley: why did it go off? >> the batteries are dying. the worst thing ever. steve: that's why you change. >> folks, public service announcement. change your smoke alarm batteries. there you go. griff: back to sleep. thanks, dan. ainsley: jillian has more headlines for us. jillian: that is the worst. follow this story we are following. inspector general's report on the russia investigation will be, quote. ugly and damning. that's the word from lindsey graham looking for answers on the origins of the fbi probe and the unverified trump dossier. >> the warrant application to the fisa court, i think, was quite frankly a fraud on the court. i want all the

♪ steve: live from new york city, it's hour two of "fox & friends" for this very busy monday. you know, griff, a lot of people don't realize that you can actually surf in new jersey. griff: yes. some of the best waives on the east coast. we have todd piro out surfing. a good time. that's what summer is all about. summer is not over yet. steve: no. ainsley: that's intimidating to try to do that, to try to surf if you have never done it before on am are a and then air it on national television. griff: particularly since he started by putting his wet suit on backwards. he had a lot of ways to grow but did he it.
steve: it's ha. griff: best surfer out there having the most fun because you are out there. the waves, nature, it's good stuff. steve: indeed. all right. thank you very much for joining us. brian is off today. griff is in his chair. it's good to have him. the cover of the "new york post" today chaos runs the streets. what they are talking about is something that happened over the weekend. three police officers were injured here in new york city. apparently they were targeted with hurled bottles and live -- other debris which police believe were tossed out of the windows or rooftops. none of the projectiles. one of the officers was head butted by a teenager carrying pepper spray according to the "new york post." this is on the heels of all those dousings of police officers. ainsley: can you believe this? i'm reading all these articles about this. people standing on top of the roof and throwing things down on top of the police officers. three of the police officers were injured. minor injuries. thank goodness. that could be very -- that could be very, very dangerous. it could hit someone in the wrong place in the head.
how painful would that be? griff: the problem is that it keeps happening. i was filling in on the weekend. we talked about this. the new york police union, the benevolent association is tweeting about it, too. saying how are cops supposed to do our job in this environment? when will nypd or mayor de blasio stand up and say enough is enough? chaos is running the streets. this is outrageous. we are lucky, to your point, ainsley, it wasn't worse. ainsley: 11 people were arrested the next morning it. happened overnight and then that next morning 11 people were, thankfully, apprehended. steve: remember a couple weeks ago we were showing you all the embarrassing video of police officers doing their job responding to calls and people throwing buckets of water on them. one guy got hit in the head. i mean, look at them. they don't even flinch. they don't turn around and say hey, i'm going to write you up. that guy gets conked in the head. now there have been a couple of bills introduced in the state legislature that would make those kind of attacks on police officers, a
felony. the big question is whether or not they will pass, of course, they have got to, don't they? >> dan bongino has a long history in law enforcement. he had this to say about it. >> this disgusting, gross, unforgivable anti-cop atmosphere permeating down from the top of new york city is a danger to every cop out there. and what's even worse about it is the failed communist mayor of new york, de blasio, he understands this is not a dumb guy, believe me, i would love to say it but he is not. he is not stupid. he understands using the cops as a whipping boy is a political tactic for him to gain favor amongst his far left base. in other words, what i'm telling you is, he is putting cops in danger. i have no doubt about that with this de facto screw the cops attitude he has, he is doing it strictly for his own political career. griff: tragically, it's putting the mindset, dan was telling us, griff, what if they came in every day and told you are doing your job
terrible and your morale really got shot down? that's another take away, it's the accumulation of all these attacks, it's not a good environment and doesn't lead to a good end. steve: after the police officers' union sent out that tweet, the mayor yesterday at 4:15 responded via twitter because is he campaigning for president in new hampshire, he said it's really simple. anybody who attacks our new york city police officers will be caught and will pay the consequences, he tweeted. and asking the public for more information. steve: once again, he is not in town. is he out running for president where i think he has got 1%? ainsley: i know. the economy doing is well as we gear up for the next election and another year we will know who the two candidates are on -- for both parties. and the president has been out there touting the economy. he was doing that over the weekend. the media, because some of the stocks fell a little bit last week. steve: they fell a lot.
ainsley: the media ran with that saying there was going to be a recession coming up. listen to this. >> recession jitters, president trump said to be rattled as economic alarm bells caused a wild week on wall street. >> there are indicators that the u.s. could be headed for a recession. >> there are some rough waters ahead, maybe a recession. >> fears of a coming recession spiked on the heels of a key economic indicator what's called inverted yield curve. >> yield curve has inverted every -- before every u.s. recession since 1955. >> they say recession on horizon. >> recession. >> recession. >> recession. steve: you get the idea a lot of recession talk. inverted yield curve for a period charles payne said it was less than 24 hours. for a short period of time the rate you got paid on short-term bond was actually more than the long-term bond. usually you put your money not long-term bond because it's a safer bet. people were so worried about the future the short-term was better.
24 hours according to charles. griff: this administration is pushing back. president trump, his advisors are saying listen, the yield curve has been an indicator in the past. these are different times. these are different circumstances. this is the president pushing back saying he doesn't see the recession. >> we have the strongest economy by far in the world. the tariffs have caused nothing, or very little. i don't see a recession. the world is in a recession right now. although that's too big a statement. but if you look at china. china doing very, very poorly. they have h i just saw a report. they have had the worst year in 27 years because of what i have done and they want to come to the negotiable table. we are doing tremendously well. our consumers are rich. i gave a tremendous tax cut. and they are loaded up with money. they are buying -- we are doing better than any country or even area anywhere in the world. we are doing great. and our consumer is really,
really strong. and it looks like they are going to be for a long time. ainsley: he said walmart's numbers are through the roof. national association of business economics they did have a report that was released. they said 34% of the economists believe that there will be a recession in 2021. and when you look at that number against february, there were 25% of the economists believe that but, i'm not an economist. you know, no one can really predict what's going to happen. these are the experts that are listening to the experts and many of them disagree with what the president is doing when it comes to tariffs. but, if you look at -- don't you have to look at the overall picture? steve: 23 you look at the whole globe, the globe is slowing down. the yates is actually the bright spot and the president, that's why. ainsley: strongest economy in the world. >> strong labor market and robust consumer spending. "wall street journal" said retail spending strong in july. but the u.s. consumer sentiment slipped to a seven-year low in august and corporate profits are down 2.2% over the same period
last year. the worry is that the trade talks, with china, because, you know, it doesn't seem like the president is in any hurry to just take any deal. he wants his deal, it looks as if, you know, the worry is that the trade talks are impacting our economy. ainsley: he said china has had worst year in 27 years. griff: they have. many say the trade war, the tariffs is going to ultimately hurt the consumer in the end. we asked charles payne okay, even considering a situation that we find ourselves in, does that mean we are going to get an answer or not. answer on monday morning, here's what he says. >> the only thing that can happen in this country right now and can derail this economic juggernaut is in everyone believes it's going to be der5eu89d. i hate to say it but to a degree the media almost did it in december. some people do it deliberately. listen, there is no economic data out there that suggests we are on the cusp of a recession. meantime guess what we saw last week. retail sales soar.
absolutely soar better than anyone anticipated. earnings report from walmart absolutely remarkable. steve: him talking about the walmart thing that you were talking about. regarding the trade troubles with china, the president yesterday warned the chinese president xi, keep in mind we are about to start another round of talks in washington, d.c. he warned the president xi against reacting violently to the protest in hong kong that we have been watching over the weekend. he said, quote: it would be much harder for me to sign a deal if he did something violent in hong kong. ainsley: what charles said was interesting. if they can get america to believe that we are heading for a recession, then that's when we could enter into a recession. so the media is here saying recession, recession, recession, knowing this is going to be a big issue for americans when they go to the polls next year. griff: meanwhile, that's not playing on the 2020 democratic campaign trail. steve: not yet. because they don't like to talk about the trump economy. for the most part, it's been
pretty good. griff: hard thing to run against. one of the things bernie sanders wants to do though is completely revamp prison. ainsley: criminal justifiable. steve: unveiled a plan yesterday aimed at slashing the country's prison population in half and riding institutional racism and corporate profiteering. here are some of the points of berniey's plan. ainsley: he wants to abolish the death penalty. he wants to stop excessive sentencing, end mandatory sentencing minimums and end three strikes law and expand the use of sentencing alternatives. steve: we had with us earlier today rachel the policy director for the consumer rather the conservative partnership institute. and she took a look at the political dynamics of what's going on here, and she had this observation just about an hour ago. >> there is a lot of interesting criminal justice reform. we saw this when president trump signed into law the first step act at the end of last year, no democrats give him credit for that, of course. but, bernie in true fashion
has taken popular ideas and just taken them a little too far. safe injection needle sites. >> what does that mean, a safe place to inject. griff: latest fox news poll elizabeth warren jumping ahead of bernie sanders. taking for granted biden because of name recognition maintains the lead. now here you have these policies getting unveiled. we will see if this is a bridge too far and whether biden will respond to this sort of policy proposal. because he has been pushed each time. we will see how he responds. steve: we will indeed. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us, hey, jillian two fire firefighters missing off the coast of florida. justin walker and brian mcclooney were last seen leaving for a fishing trip friday morning from port canaveral. their families praying for a safe return. >> anybody going to get through, this it's my brother, combat veteran. u.s. navy, fallujah,
firefighter in jacksonville, florida right now. he knows what he is doing. he has been sailing all his life. jillian: the coast guard has covered 20,000 square miles by air and sea. bail is set at $200,000 for the man accused of sparking a bomb scare. placing bombs in new york city. the west virginia man planted a pair of rice cookers in a subway station forcing emergency evacuations and a lot of chaos and panic on friday. griffin will be back in court later this week. a motive is still unknown. former governor who led the state during hurricane katrina has died. current governor john bel edwards tweeting about heir legacy saying she was a, quote, trailblazer and broke many barriers leading the way for others to follow. she stands among the giants who have helped shape louisiana's history. blanco was the first female governor of louisiana. she had been battling a rare form of cancer that spread to her liver. blanco was 76 years old.
he picked the wrong car. a man is arrested for impersonating a cop after he pulled over a van filled with real detectives. he turned on emergency lights and sounded an air horn to try to stop the van on long island, new york. ran away as soon as the cops identified himself. he was arrested a short time later. ainsley: what was the motive? he was just -- did he want to steal their car or something? just wanted to act like a cop? jillian: i don't know. steve: that's enough. just picked the wrong car to pull over. griff: criminals do dumb things. ainsley: thank you, jillian. 13 minutes after the top of the hour. congresswoman rasheda tlaib's grandmother slamming president trump after she turns down a visit to israel. house democrats could punish israel's ambassador. griff: congress lee zeldin says there is a big double standard on the left. he is here to weigh in next.

after her granddaughter decided not to visit israel telling reuters, quote: trump tells me i should be happy rasheda is not coming. may god ruin him. the move comes as consider action against u.s. and israeli ambassadors. here to weigh in is new york congressman lee zeldin one of two jewish republican men in congress. good morning, congressman. what is your reaction to what has transpired here? >> over the course of the last few days, it's been a lot of back and forth. but, very quickly, you know, to kind of catch up, israel said that if rasheda tlaib wanted to estimate humanitarian visa to visit her grandmother that israel would grant it. rasheda tlaib then submits the request to have that humanitarian visa. israel grants it and then rasheda tlaib turns around and goes after israel for granting this humanitarian visa because she wants to not only visit her grandmother but she also wants to go over there and
advocate for harm to the nation of israelunfortunate that all of these events transpired the way it did. there was an opportunity for tlaib and omar to have gone earlier this month with 70 colleagues, republicans and democrats, to listen, learn, in good faith it. would have been a genuine and productive, substantive dialogue, hopefully if they approached it in the right way. instead what we have seen is this bad faith pr attempt and this latest news is now she is not going over and they want to blame donald trump. but it's really the fact that they are promoting policies to harm israel. griff: well, congressman, israel has a law that allows them to bar people who boycott israel. that was initial barring. then the humanitarian visa was granted. and, yet, tlaib rejected it again as you pointed out. my question to you is, what is her motivation and is this something that's coming back to washington when you guys are back in september?
>> as far as motivation, just look at her policy and her rhetoric. she supports -- she has endorsed a one state solution that would effectively remove jews from power in israel. just a few weeks ago she stood on the floor of the house of representatives and compared boycotting israel to boycotting nazi germany. she says thinking about the holocaust gives her a calming feeling because of the safe haven that she says the palestinians provide to the jews, which is factually inaccurate. so her and her squad mate, ilhan omar, who has said that israel hypnotized the world. if you support israel, you have pledged allegiance to a foreign power. if you support israel have you been bought off by jews. the two of them were looking to tag team this trip in bad faith. rhetoric, policy, it's all there, what their intentions were about and it wasn't good. griff: congressman, we saw some house democrats calling, to i guess, take a vote of no confidence on two israeli ambassadors are we going to see that? and, if so, should your speaker, pelosi, allow that?
>> it would be a huge strategic mistake on their part. it's wrong on the merits. it's bad politics on top of it all. one is the israeli ambassador to the u.s., the other individual is the u.s. ambassador to israel. and israel has a law that is on the books that allows them to prevent anyone to visit their country who seeks to harm their country. it would be wrong to be criticizing israeli ambassador to the united states for his role in this because they don't want to have people traveling to their country that want to harm it. as far as the u.s. ambassador to israel goes, we have to understand that these two members were going -- they were claiming to be representatives of the u.s. government. but they were seeking to undercut u.s. foreign policy and not represent our actual distances government. griff: why, quickly, has speaker pelosi not attempted to reign some of this in and it looks like we will see more of it? >> because she has no control over the squad.
as aoc said at the beginning beginnings of this year. i'm not stuck here with you y'all are stuck here with me. the squad has been rolling the leadership and the leadership doesn't know how to deal with them. so, as far as tlaib and omar goes or this situation, and the radical left all across this entire country, nancy pelosi has lost control. she wants to stay a speaker, and doesn't believe she could stay as speaker if she doesn't appease these radical members of her conference. >> all right. congressman lee zeldin thank you very much. you mentioned lee and omar actually have a press conference this afternoon. we shall see what they say. congressman, thank you for being here. >> thank you. griff: all right. our next guest was a lifelong democrat calling to repeal the second amendment. now is he a trump supporting gun hunting republican and is he opening up about the backlash he received because he changed his party. that's coming up next ♪ all right now ♪ baby, it's all right now ♪

traumatic experience but it got me started the ball rolling and got me thinking about guns. and then as time went along a few years later, i was, you know, kind of easing my views in terms of the second amendment and gun ownership. i decided to move back to washington state and i was building a house. i started thinking about what i'm going to do the police are minutes away. what am i going to do? how am i going to defend my life, you know, so that's when i really -- my views really changed and i decided to purchase the gun. steve: sure. well, let's talk a little bit, ryan, about where your views came from originally. because when you were a young man, you loved music. you went out to california. you went out to los angeles. you wanted to work for divo. you drove up to their office. you got hired by divo, the rock band. and you worked for them for seven years. and it was the girlfriend of one of the lead singers who kind of shaped your early days, right? >> exactly, yeah.
you have did your homework. steve: i did. >> yeah. so, basically, i mean, i was 18 and getting ready to vote for the first time. and i was really, you know, a huge divo fan and so basically said hey you should always vote democrat. i was like okay, i'm a democrat. steve: that's where it came from. ainsley: that's interesting. >> yeah. exactly. that's how i started. someone i really looked up to told me how to vote. i was a big fan of the beatles, too. i was really young when john lenin was killed, so that really affected me as well and made me kind of anti-gun as well. ainsley: what's been the reaction? i have read some of the comments on social media. but tell us about the backlash. i know you have experienced that. >> yeah. for sure. it's pretty surprising. you know, it just seems so many democrats, i believe they, you know, seems like they support the first amendment when they agree with what you are saying. snels they disagree with
what you are saying, now they automatically just call you racist or white supremacist or just attack you personally. they don't come back at you and even argue your views. they just attack you personally. so i have experienced a lot of that. and, you know, it doesn't bother me. i don't really read the comments. i do my thing on social media. i tweet out what i want to tweet out or i leave a comment or a post. and then i don't really, you know, stick around to argue with everybody about it. steve: well, you wrote the op-ed. it's called how i went from a liberal to conservative in 30 short years. i understand these days though, ryan, because you are now a supporter of the president, you know, you are defending a lot of his policies. what is it you like about it. >> the biggest thing that attracted me to president trump that made me come around and switch originally
was just his putting america and all americans first. like i really believe in that. i really am a big, you know, i love america. i love products to be made in america. i love all americans. and i really, absolutely, believe that the president does as well. he really truly cares. he loves america like, you know, no one else. and he loves all americans and wants everyone to succeed. so, that's really the biggest thing for me is we are finally putting our own country ahead of other countries. ainsley: when i listen to your story, the biggest take away for me you looked up to this rock group and they told you to be a democrat and you just said okay. it's fine to be a republican. it's fine to be a democrat. but i feel like the message here is just do your homework know why you are voting for someone. know the issues. >> exactly. i mean, i was -- you know at 18 i was a lot more naive than a lot of 18-year-olds
now and more impressionable, hopefully. and, yeah, you just -- i finally started thinking for myself. i mean, i had to learn -- i had to learn -- i had basically what i believed on a certain issue but then i had to learn what the democrat position was on that. and then i was like okay, so i made those my views even though those weren't my natural views. so i had to learn to be a democrat. steve: and because you are living in the pacific northwest now, which you are in a state right now that is very blue, do you talk much about politics or, you know, do you talk to your neighbors how you feel about different things or do you just write podesta? >> yeah. i mean, i mostly as far as interacting with people about politics mostly on social media or on op-eds. my mom, i moved up here to also kind of take care of my mom. she is a little older. and she is a lifelong republican, conservative, she is a big supporter of
president trump from, you know, since always. she has always loved him. so, yeah. but back when i was a democrat. we used to have arguments about politics, of course. and you know but we were able to remain civil and still love each other. so that's something that i feel that we have really lost with whether -- you know like on social media, when i switched and came out as republican, i lost thousands of social media followers who were liberal or democrat. you know, and including people that i know in person, family members. you know, it's crazy. that people can't, you know, remain connected and remain friends afternoon get along ryan ryan agree with that a lot of people feel the way do you but too scared to wear the hat and his policies. thank you for coming on. >> thank you for having me on, absolutely. steve: ryan moore, absolutely. meanwhile colin kaepernick calling out jay-z after he apparently is on the verge of a deal with the nfl.

outrage. steve: i wonder how colin kaepernick feels about that. ainsley: my brothers eric ride, kenny stills and albert wilson continue to fight for the people even in the face of death threats. they have never moved past the people and continue to put their beliefs in action. stay strong, brothers. griff: well, you know, the eric reid part 2 it basically said kiln kaepernick has to get a job. now it's turned to this mess. i was working on my fantasy football team last night. football is about to start. we will start the season with this thing. the "new york post" weighing in on an op-ed. steve: they did. the headline was you know things are bad when the pc mob comes for jay-z. just out of curiosity, what team are they talking about him buying? griff: we don't know. there are just reports out there. and he, of course, has had a professional sports team before. not football. basketball now he wants to weigh in. he would, if jay-z did get an ownership stake in nfl team would be the first
american owner to own an nfl team and that would be historic. there is this camp that is fighting for colin kaepernick. colin kaepernick must get a job or get a quarterback job to go along with it and, you know, as we were talking about a lot on the weekend, a lot of people, our viewers and people said this is, you know, it's time to move beyond -- ainsley: if he did bay team and they went to the super bowl, would beyonce perform at the halftime show? because i would buy tickets for that. griff: i don't know. i don't know. you can ask jay-z if you want. tweet at him. ainsley: let us know what you think about that and the colin kaepernick thing. firstname.lastname@example.org. steve: meanwhile a high school principal going strirl for this incredible catch. look at. this act like you have been here before. easy money. [cheers]
ainsley: he won a bet against the football coach the whole team got a day off football camp. griff: lasalle high school in ohio. the kicker the kicker at the school. amazing kick and catch. coach or principal, what -- tell us more about what happened here. >> well, good morning. ainsley: good morning. >> and thank you for having us on this morning. who would have thought that a simple kick and catch would garner so much interest. it's incredible. the story is that i went out to talk with the team and i like to do each season, talk with our young men on the different sports teams and tell them how much we are proud of them and excited for the upcoming season and also to embrace leadership and talking about being leaders in the classroom and in the community and at the end of that particular
conversation with the football team, our head coach pat mclaughlin said that if this man next to me, jake cyber, i sign seiber cixd n the air and i caught it they would have the afternoon practice off i told my coach i can't do that coach. i said i mean you can't catch a kick? no i think i can catch a kick but we play a pretty challenging schedule. steve: we need a practice. >> for me to catch it and give the team off weed be prepared. he assured me that the boys have been working really really hard and that they would use that time to study their playbooks and do some team bonding experiences. so, jake, who is committed to the ohio state university. is he one of the best kirks in the country. he gave me a softball. it was easy for me to catch and the rest is history. steve: jake, the pressure is on you. everybody wanted practice off. had you to really get it to him and he had to catch it, which was the hard part. >> yep, um-huh. i try to make it as easy as
i could for him. >> the truth be told, the coaches were telling me just to stand on the hash and jake is so good he can put the ball on the hash. but he wanted to actually see if i could catch it. so he kicked it a little off center intentionally and wanted to see if i could, you know get over there, shuffle my feet and catch it, it's a good thing i caught it or we wouldn't be sitting here this morning. ainsley: aaron, were you nervous? >> i don't know that i time to be nervous because, you know, one of the things we do at lasalle high school is we work on building relationships with our young men. we had a lot of fun even before that video was recording. and, you know, we talked back and forth and we are having fun with it. so i went back there just thinking i was going to catch a simple kick. i will say there was about a half a second thinking if i don't catch this and practice is on the line that wouldn't be good at this point. griff: jake, congratulations, going to ohio state. >> thank you. griff: can you kick that
every day? do you know the to play in the nfl? >> yeah, of course i want to play in the nfl. who doesn't? i work on kickoffs all the time so i'm able to get it to where he wanted it to be. steve: right. jake, are you astounded at the social media reaction and how this has gone viral? >> yeah, i am. we do that every year. and only thing we switched up is instead of having a lineman catch it, we had our principal catch it and that blew up that's pretty amazing. >> i'm a step up from like a lineman. ainsley: jake, tell us about your principal and coach. i come from a family my dad was a coach and i see the influence that my dad has had on so many individuals. he still gets letters from kids who have went on to college to play. tell us about your coach and your principal. >> coach is always working with the team to make us better. and just the fact that he is will to give us one practice
off is awesome. he is willing to trust us with our abilities and he knows come back the next day working harder. so, that's -- it was awesome to see him do that for us. and then a principal here, he is one of the most fun guys to be around. and i'm glad he is able to catch it for me. steve: aaron, you realize from now on, once a year, you are going to have to catch the ball. [laughter] >> well, i have already had the different teams, you know, be it soccer or basketball challenge me to do different things. i might just stop after catching this and not risk it. griff: all right. we look forward to following your career. are you going to be more nervous trying to kick like that or do you think you have got confidence that you have been prepared there to deliver it for four years in college? >> no, i don't see any pressure to it as long as i keep working on it. pressure is nothing. steve: all right. well have a great rest of the summer, guys.

steve: all right. welcome back. let's bring in newt gingrich, forminger speaker of the house, fox news contributor. he writes a free newsletter available at gingrich 360.com. it's available right now. newt, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: i'm sure you were watching a lot of television over the last couple of days. there has been a lot of reporting how it looks like we are aiming for a recession because there was inverted yield curve thing and trade war with china. what do you make of it? >> well, look, i think every left wing reporter in the country and every democratic presidential candidate is desperate for a recession.
it's kind of weird. you know, they are running to be president in the hopes that more americans will be unemployed. and so, any indicator of any kind that gives them an excuse to say oh the recession is on the way, the recession is on the way, just makes them feel good. now, the fact is that the president's policies are working overall. that the decline, for example, in the cost of oil and gas and natural gas is the equivalent of big tax cut. and that we are going through a lot of changes. and the changes in a frequent, you get turmoil. you get somebody inevents apple. somebody inevents a computer. somebody inevents a new drug. so a lot of churning, so far, at least, we are probably the healthiest economy on the planet. and we are more likely to avoid a recession than any other country in the world. griff: ask you about the "new york times" magazine.
crusade reframe america as defined by slavery and racism. here's the headline i want to show it to you. the 1619 project and the quote inside says q it aims to reframe the country's history, understanding 1619 as our true founding and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black americans at the very center of the story tell us who we're. you are a historian. your reaction? >> yeah, the whole project is a lie. look, i think slavery a terrible thing. i think putting slavery in context is important. we still have slavery in places around the world today so, we recognize this is an ongoing story. i think certainly if you are an african-american, slavery is at the center of what you sees a the american experience. but, for most americans, most of the time, there were a lot of other things going on. there were several hundred thousand white americans who died in the civil war in order to free the slaves.
the fact is that i saw one reference that the "new york times" claims that the american revolution was caused in part to defend slavery. that is such historically factually false nonsense that it's embarrassing that the "new york times" is doing. this but, if you saw the recent leaked interview, town hall meeting with the "new york times" editor, he basically said, look, we blew it on russian collusion, didn't work. now we are going to go to racism, that's our new model. the next two years will be trump and racism. this is a tragic decline of the "new york times" into a propaganda paper worthy of provada in the soviet union. steve: thank you. griff: homeless drug crisis growing in california. one business owner says it's gotten so bad she has had to close up shop. she joins us next. >> this video is for gavin newsom, i just want to tell you what happens when i get to work. i have to clean up the poop

at one point last week. people are going wait a minute, maybe the economy is not so good? ainsley: some economists say there will be a recession in 2021. who really knows at this point. but the media, sunday shows, the media over the weekend they ran with this, making you wonder do they want a recession? listen to this. >> recession jitters. president trump said to be rattled as economic alarm bells cause a wild week on wall street. >> there are indicators that the u.s. could be headed for recession. >> there are some rough waters ahead, maybe a recession. >> fears of a coming recession spiked on the heels of a key economic indicator which calls inverted yield curve. >> the yield curve has inverted, before every u.s. recession since 1955. >> they say potential recession on the rise. >> recession. >> recession. >> recession. griff: clearly my colleagues in the media are jumping on the
yield curve indicator which led to recession, president trump in new jersey, pushing hard back, he doesn't see that coming. here is what the president said. >> we have the strongest economy by far in the world. the tariffs have caused nothing in my opinion or certainly very little. i don't see a recession. the world is in a recession right now. although that is too big a statement, if you look at china, china is doing very, very poorly. they have had, i just saw a report, they have had the worst year in 27 years because of what i've done and they want to come to the negotiating table. we're doing tremendously well. our consumers are rich. i gave a tremendous tax cut. they're loaded up with money. they're buying. we are doing better than any country or even area anywhere in the world. we're doing great. and our consumer really, really strong and looks like they're going to be for a long time. steve: the president pointed to the strong labor market and
amount of money people are spending. consumer sentiment is high he said right there. also he revealed on friday night, he talked to tim cook who runs apple. >> apple cook. tim apple, that is right. steve: explained something to me i hadn't really thought about, one of their biggest competitors for apple who makes most of the products in china is samsung. samsung is not impacted they don't make things in china. they make things around the world. the president said that was impactful on him but also at the same time he doesn't appear to be in any big hurry to get a deal with china although they are going to open another round of talks. ainsley: the majority of economists are not thinking there will be recession, but the national association for business economics did a report, 34% of the economists did believe we were heading for recession in 2021. charles payne was on with us earlier. he says there is no evidence
we're on the brink of a recession. listen. >> the only thing that can happen in this country right now that can derail this economic juggernaut if everyone believes it will be derailed. i hate to say it, the media almost did that in december. i think some people do it deliberately. there is no economic data out there that suggestions we're on the cusp of a recession. meantime, guess what we saw last week? retail sales soar, absolutely soar, significantly better than anyone anticipated. we saw earnings report from walmart that was absolutely remarkable. griff: we don't know what's going to happen and as charles payne said there is no economic data that indicates recession is coming. interesting to see whether the trade war with china hurts consumers as many critics -- ainsley: we don't want recession. we don't want people to lose their jobs or their money. steve: regarding china, regarding president xi of china, suggesting he not react violently to the protests we're about to talk about.
would be much harder for me to sign a deal, if he, president xi did something violent in hong kong. ainsley: speaking of that, here is a fox news alert. protests in hong kong showing no signs of slowing down or stopping. steve: look at that. nearly two million people, a quarter of the population in hong kong filling the streets this weekend defying threats from mainland china. griff: susan li joins us live from hong kong where rallies are set to begin. susan, good morning. reporter: good morning to you, we had one of the largest turnouts in the 11 weeks of protest here in hong kong. emphatic show of support for hong kong yesterday for the pro-democracy movement. we saw close to two million, according to some reports, as really a sign of unity among the hong kong public that we're together in this. we can do this peacefully as well. a sign no one is fearful after china troop buildup along the hong kong border with china.
we're out there yesterday. torrential rains didn't start crowds from coming out. we saw families there. we saw people young and old. we saw students, we saw professionals. they were really in this together and enthusiastic, in fact. i guess the pressure is back on beijing to respond to this. there was some controversy last week, when the star of the live action disney film, mulan, supports the them and jackie chan. they fear backlash if they go against china and beijing. one celebrity voiced support for prodemocracy movement in hong kong, she is a pop star in this community. she says her career has been hurt as a result of that. >> i have been banned from china, all brands and businesses keeping their distance from me. so dropped to near zero.
reporter: we do have more protests planned for rest of this month. another big one expected on august 31st, they expect maybe another million people to come on to the hong kong streets, guys. griff: wow, thank you, susan. >> thank you, susan. a lot of umbrellas out there in the streets. steve: rainy day but didn't slow them down. meanwhile on friday when we saw you we told you about awe ilhan omar and rashida tlaib were denied access to enter the country of israel with a codel, a congressional delegation, that came on heels president tweeting out israel would look weak if they allowed. rashida tlaib then sent a letter to the interior minister, hey look, this could be the last time i see my grandma, she is 90. i promise not to talk about the
boycotts which she talked about the in past interior minister granted entry into israel. you know what? it is too restrictive. i don't want to go. now, sounds like democrat are issuing a no confidence statement regarding the israeli ambassador to the united states, ron dermer because he had said israel would never prevent a member of congress from visiting israel and they changed their mind. ainsley: they will have a press conference. we'll learn more what rashida tlaib and omar think of this. the president tweeting about this. house democrats want to take action against israel, fighting back against two, maybe four people, said unthinkably bad things about it and israeli people. dems have such disdain for israel. what happened? aoc plus 4 is the new face of the democratic party. griff: we talked about it over the weekend. one thing you have to remember democrats have been calling out president trump over the situation.
israel has a law that allows them to speak out that calls for a boycott of israel. here is some democrats calling out the president over the situation dating even before this incident with talib and omar. listen. >> donald trump is not doing any favors to himself or to israel with his tremendously cruel and childish behavior. >> should there been repercussions for israel? >> i think our obligation as an ally and as a friend is hold them accountable when they're wrong. i think anytime you're undermining basic free speech rights and human rights you're going in the wrong direction. >> i think that you do not have a president of the united states suggesting to an ally that congress members should not be able to visit their country. steve: so the democrats are considering a no confidence statement regarding israeli ambassador. they're talking about perhaps
opening an inspector general investigation into the u.s. ambassador to jerusalem, mr. david friedman. ainsley: president said this, he tweeted about that. it is complete set-up. she wanted to use the grandmother. they said fine you can go to the country. i retract that, i'm not going. griff: congressman lee zeldin one of only two republicans, jewish republicans in congress we had him on earlier, i asked him about the motivations what talib wants to accomplish. here is what zeldin said. >> we've seen a bad faith pr attempt, this latest news, now she is not going over. they want to blame donald trump, but just a few weeks ago, she stood on the floor of the house of representatives and compared boycotting israel to boycotting nazi germany. she says thinking about the holocaust gives her a calming feeling because of safe haven palestinians provide to the jews which is factually inaccurate. her and her squad mate, ilhan

ainsley: that is hard to see. imagine what the family is going through. steve: switching gears. he is one of the most influential musical artists of all time ♪ you wonder why i always dress in black, why you never see write -- bright colors on my back ♪ griff: we know johnny cash and his music but a new book talks about struggle for faith. steve: senior pastor at the harvest christian fellowship, greg laurie, who appropriately is dressed in black. >> this is navy blue but close to black. steve: where did that start with johnny cash? >> it started early on. he started wearing black more and more. he became identified as "the man in black." even recorded a song about it ultimately. it became part of his image. people thought johnny was a horrible outlaw, this criminal because he sang, i shot a man in
reno just to watch him die. he actually didn't do that, but he put it in a long, folsom city blues, but he did live this conflicted life. so part of that image he had was the man in black. steve: right. ainsley: i remember seeing billy graham at usc, the stadium there, johnny cash came on stage. >> that's right. ainsley: my dad, i was so little, myi didn't know who johnny cash was, that he became a christian in prison. i don't know if that is true. he was arrested in five times seven years. he was probably all a christian but did he find god behind bars? >> yes, yes, yes. he was raised as a christian by parents. had a harsh father. steve: grew up in the depression. >> he grew up in the depression, literally out in the fields picking cotton. his brother died in a tragic accident when he was very young, it had a big impact on johnny's life, sent johnny on a search. johnny made a commitment as a
young boy to the lord. when he became popular, his recording career took off, he started using amphetamines on the road. it became ad diction. he didn't go to prison, ainsley, but he went to jail for smuggling amphetamines across the border. he had the struggle throughout his life. he is honest about the strug fell. the movie walk the line, starring joaquin phoenix and reese witherspoon was a very good depiction much the life of cash. i'm picking up where the movie left off, weaving in the faith story that was bedrock of johnny's life. that is why he lived to the tell the story. griff: you have great quotes in this book, one a bit of a confessional where johnny cash says i was a bad boy at times but god was always there for me. i knew that. i guess i always took advantage of that. >> yeah. ainsley: a lot of us do that. >> a lot of us do that. you know, welcome to the human race. i mean if you're a believer, you
struggle. johnny struggled. he was very close friends with billy graham as you mentioned ainsley. there was a dual personality. johnny said is the good one, cash gives me all the trouble. there was johnny who was good would be with billy graham in his crusades, used his tv program as a platform for sharing his faith, but cash struggled and fell, but he came up again. look at pantheon of rock stars that died from drug overdose, that could have happened to johnny cash. the reason it didn't happen, johnny had bedrock faith he always returned to again and glen. at the end of his career he had huge musical resurgence and spiritual commitment. he started strong at sun records in the old days with elvis and jerry lee lewis, he finished strong when producer rick rubin discovered him, relaunched him, became a hip icon for
generation-x. steve: he was on "fox & friends" to talk about that. at core of the book it is all about redemption. the story of johnny cash is a story people can identify with. >> it is everybody's story. here is the real message, no matter what you've done, no matter how many mistakes you made, no matter how far you've fallen there is a god in heaven will forgive you and give you a second chance. johnny is great example. his sister, joanna cash yates, says he would have liked this book more than any other book about him, because it tells that story. that is why i wrote the book. i'm not really a biographer per se, i'm a pastor. i have written a couple of biographies. steve: you know about redemption. >> i love stories about redemption. to me the story of johnny cash is a classic redemption story. ainsley: why did you use johnny cash to highlight? >> i always liked him. going back to my childhood i remember watching him on tv
later in life i rediscovered when i became a christian in 1970. i said, wow, this guy is a christian? a cool person is a christian? johnny was called the godfather of cool. he had the coolness right to the end of his life. i've always been a fan of cash. but since writing this book i gotten to know a lot more about him. griff: it's a great book. johnny cash, redemption of an american icon. bob dylan saying that johnny was the north star you can set your guide ship, he would be your guide. thanks very much, greg. ainsley: if you're in riverside, california, go to greg's church. >> we're doing a big crusade this weekend at angels stadium. so that is going to be a big thing. check it out. thank you, guys. steve: straight ahead, the white house reacts to the media's recession rhetoric over the weekend. kellyanne conway live from the white house when we come back. ♪ the first survivor of alzheimer's disease

media covering the economy but they only use grover assessing see street word of the day, recession. more people are work now than ever before in american history. more people off the sidelines back into the workforce and those wages are up particularly among blue-collar workers. a lot of the trade deals the president has renegotiated, continues to negotiate in a bilateral, reciprocal, more fairway to american workers and american interests and america are happening and also the optimism is there. people are spending money. they're also saving money. some people are saving money. some people no longer dipping into the savings to meet basic household, life expenses. all the fundamentals haven't changed. 2 1/2 years, collusion hunt and mueller report were a big dud. now they're searching around and they're trying to, they're trying to bureau into the president's number one issues in the polls. a majority of americans approve he handled the economy. that hasn't changed over time.
they need to go against the fundamentals. they realize it was bill clinton who denied george herbert walker bush his second term saying it is economy stupid, even though we were into recovery by then. people didn't believe it. they didn't feel it yet. that just not going to work, if people know the economy and fundamentals are strong. steve: kellyanne, last week was a wild week on wall street. >> no doubt. >> because of the trade deal with china, it doesn't look like we're anywhere close to a deal. are we? >> well the president said yesterday that he could do a deal right now and, that the economy would take off like a rocket, i'm paraphrasing his words yesterday but he doesn't want to do a deal if it's a bad deal. too many presidents in the past have done that. we ended up where we are, which is half a trillion dollar trade deficit with china, the world's second largest economy where the technology transfers and the theft of intellectual property went unabated and unpunished. this president is waiting for a
better deal for this country but, look, we can't deny the fact that because of his tax cuts, his deregulations, the energy explosion in this country, where now we are the world's largest exporter of natural gas and oil, people can't deny the manufacturing base is back. i watched somebody on tv yesterday say, manufacturing never recovered. the president promised it. what are they talking about? there is over half a million new manufacturing jobs since president trump was elected, six million jobs. the wage growth is important because people are raising wages to compete for these workers. workers right now can compete for over 7 million available jobs. the reskilling going on, dignifying all types of work. this is important to the fundamentals in the economy. everywhere i go people stopped me, i didn't vote last time, i didn't vote for him, i'm going to this time. they usually mention the economy. griff: will that be the case, kellyanne, if this trade war
with china ends up hurting as critics pointed out herring consumers? >> the president takes the long view on all of this. he takes the long view. he want a better deal. he inherited a imbalanced, non-reciprocal unfair trade deficit with china. when i say trade deficit, we have half a trillion dollars. makes no sense to the average american worker, we were told, find a new line of work. your job has been outsourced. we have to somehow give money to, be on the losing side as number one, world's number one economy to the world's number two economy. it makes no sense to americans. part of how the president got elected in the first place. but again those people who originally said the tax cuts can't pass if they do, it will never rebound to the benefit of worker. millions of americans got higher wages or races or both. we mention health care t doesn't get mentioned enough. health care eats up a major share of many household budgets.
why is that? because obama-biden care left 28 million plus americans with no health insurance whatsoever. this president comes out with a major plan to fix health care, make it even better. we're waiting on fifth circuit decisions as well in the azar-texas case. meantime he is doing away with surprise medical billing. bringing more transparency. he is making moves to make health care, more accessible, more affordable, to more americans. that is big part of many people's budget. ainsley: you break it down, when you talk about budget. are you doing better now than before. move to israel. israel bars rashida tlaib and ilhan omar from coming into the country. talib says my grandmother lives there, i might not be able to see her again. israel says yes as long as you don't protest. she says i will not go now, the restrictions are only to humiliate her. why do you think she did this in
the first place? she appealed to want to go, now i'm not going? the president tweeted said, this was all a set-up. what do you say? >> how can you con conclude than anything what it usually is with them, raw politics and media attention? and, if she wants to go see her grandmother she should do that she is allowed to do that. no, i can't do it now. what was that in the first place? also, there was an 80-person bipartisan congressional delegation that went to israel around the time that ilhan omar and rashida tlaib were planning on going. why didn't they join the delegation? i can tell you why. they want to be two of two gobbling up media attention. they don't want to be two of 80. there is another reason. they are anti-israel. they were coordinating their trips with vicious anti-semites. so, now rashida tlaib instead of getting an plane going to visit her mother in the west bank which she is allowed to do, her
90-year-old grandmother, she is telling everybody to boycott bill maher's show on hbo. he dared call out her and ilhan omar being against the country they want to visit. if people want to visit the country to learn something, correct their ways, not be anti-semitic anymore, fine. the fact-checkers on these two and rest of the squad are still in nantucket and martha's vineyard or europe for the summer, they never challenge them on basic principles. they like -- one of them will break away beyonce leaves destiny child at some point. they like a lot of media attention. boy, do they get it. griff: over the weekend we saw another sort of violent antifa protest. >> disgusting. griff: in portland. portland is ground zero. i stride to explain the rise of antifa because of president trump has been the catalyst. but the president had tweeted, maybe it is time to designate antifa as a domestic terrorist
organization. can you tell me this morning that we can expect to see action on this other than just a tweet? >> the president's looking at it. fbi director chris wray made very clear that their arrests based on domestic terrorism are up now. the fbi, includes white supremacy, also includes antifa, it can also include anti-semitism, it includes all types of hate and the president does have different folks with those powers looking whether to designate them. >> right. >> if you roll the tape, you see what they're doing. they're not just taunting, they're not expressing nonsense on twitter like some do, they're not just taunting other people, they're physically violent. they're hurting people. griff: yeah. >> by did you see, i tweeted out a few of them, or more, they're completely harassing brave men and women in blue. one was hurling racial insults at an african-american police officer.
i'm not even going to repeat what they said. everybody should look at tape. griff: i talked to one of the leader of antifa, they say they don't have leaders, i spoke to prominent one in washington that was there during your inauguration and she says that she sees this as an attempt, an assault on their first amendment rights. your reaction? >> my reaction, do we know what antifa stand for. it is anti-first amendment. that is very curious. but your first amendment, first amendment rights of free speech do not extend to be physically violent towards another human being because you disagree with their politics because they have a red maga hat on. that has to stop. guy at fill self shooting at six police officers. has a rap sheet size of me, and everybody screaming about gun control. people have to focus on the violence that is happening. you can pick and choose who you think is criminally reprehensible and violent, worthy of punishment based on their politics. we're a nation built on the rule
