with something that's pretty high maintenance. dogs arcat are not easy. dogs are easy. i love the challenge of a cat to make him love you ain't easy. have a good day. jillian: got to go. "fox & friends" starts right now. [shouting] >> we start with a fox news alert. chaos in our nation's capital. did you see this. rioters clashing with d.c. police. they tried to create their own so-called black house autonomous zone outside the white house. steve: just a few hours earlier protesters used ropes to try to take down that statue of president andrew jackson in lafayette square park. once again, targeting st. john's episcopal church as you can see right there. they wrote bhaz for black house autonomous zone.
which you were talking about, brian. >> griff general kings is live down in washington with president trump's reaction to the unrest overnight. griff, what else the latest. >> good morning ainsley, brian and steve. not happy because civil unrest is returning to the streets of d.c. specifically in that area north of the white house where all the activity has been going on. remember mayor bowser pro-k4r5eu78d this the black lives matter plaza. trying to something similar to seattle. calling it the black house autonomous zone vandalizing that church spray painting wbhaz on its pillars. same church they set on fire last month. tried to tear down andrew jackson statue andrew park. thwarted by d.c. police. the president tweeted. this numerous rules people tweeted this numerous people. imagine any if i sent statue of andrew jackson in addition to the exterior defacing of st. john's church across the
street. 10 years in prison under the veterans memorial preservation act. beware. tweeting this overnight despite reports to the contrary. bhaz was held. currently held of blm plaza and h street from 17th to vermont where barricades have formed to protect bhaz activists sleeping from getting hit by cars: in a mob let me be clear we will not bow to anarchists, law and order will prevail. justifiable will be served. tensions rising again here in d.c., guys. transferringly, no word overnight from mayor muriel bowser over last night's incident. she doesn't have a press conference set. we will see what she has to say. we will definitely hear more from the president. he departs a little bit later for arizona. brian, anxiously, steve? brian: going to be interesting to find out how this plays out. we thought most of the hard civil unrest was done from two weeks ago now it's back and they
use defensive barriers that were used for the police. they were actually used to wall off and create this temporary new autonomous zone in washington which was immediately broken up. so the big question is this war on history. over 100 monuments been taken down since may 25th. 100 monuments and plaques everything from george washington to francis scott key and thought removal of teddy roosevelt. yesterday part of a special we're doing that's going to air on sunday which is the history of the white house which is 230 years old, the president of the united states talked to me about the statues. this is one hour before they targeted andrew jackson, which is about -- steve, would you say like right down the block. steve: it's across the street from it. brian: across the street a half mile away. here is what he said is the problem with tearing down imperfect people. >> we are in a war on
history. they want to take jackson statue out of new orleans, without the battle of new orleans not the same country. >> i don't like it at all. i don't like anything going on
now. federal i have stopped. i have stopped federal. but the states are a lot of states are weak. a lot of people are weak. and they are allowing it to happen. hey, it's going over a little bit around the world now. they wanting to remove the statue of gansdy. ghandi. all he wanted was peace. hthey wanted to take down ulysss s. grant. no one higher over the last 10 or 15 years. brian: understand look at one thing they had they were brilliant they also had slaves. how do we grow as a country but yet not forget our past? >> so, tough understand history. and you have to understand the culture. and some other aspects of our country. and people can study that and they can hate it and let's all hate it. but you can't take down george
washington's statue and half of our country is named after washington. you can't -- we have to remember the heritage that the culture of our country. and, you know,this is less important but it's very important. some of the things that they are trying to destroy are magnificent pieces of art. have you ever seen an area where a statue was removed and you look at the area and they put blacktop over the top of it, they put asphalt over the top and that's the end? and it was the center of a town or a village? and now the statue is gone. and the whole village is like a different place. and here's the other problem i have, a lot of these people that want it down don't even know what they are taking down. i watched them on television and i see what's happening. and they are ripping down things they have no idea what they are ripping down. but they started off with the confederate and then they go to ulysses s. grant? well, what's that all about? they would knock down lincoln
there is a group that wants to take down lincoln. they haven't figured out exactly why yet. george washington. thomas jefferson. i have stopped them twice now from going other to the jefferson memorial. if i weren't president, if a guy like biden was president, they will knock down
the jefferson memorial. not going to happen. brian: obviously kind of ominous right between the jackson portrait right there. nobody says you are on a statue because you are perfect. people said you made a huge impact. no one doubts that andrew jackson walls imperfect. but also doubt made huge impact on an entire generation not just 8 years in office. leading up to a major general. orphan at 13. fighting the war at 14. loses his his entire family. finds a way to become a major general two term president. my goodness, how dare you put a rope around his neck and try to tear down his statue when you see the people of that time
generation. nation mourned when he passed. then to see this one hour later is totally discon concerning. where are the democrats who should be yieldly outraged? we should be able to come together on this. >> the thing about jackson, brian, he has been a target in that park for a long time. in addition to owning slaves, it's about the fact that he signed the end i can't believe removal act which back in the 1860s, i think, what it did -- 1830s that is to say. during the fall of 1838, i believe, is when they moved all those cher ke cherokee indians. so-called trail of tears. that's why so many people are angry because he is a symbol. however, the president did say yesterday as well that what he's going to do is he will sign an executive order to protect the statues, essentially by making the cities guard their monuments, ainsley. so, you know what?
he is sick of it and he is going to try to do whatever can he to stop it. ainsley: he was tweeting yesterday. senator tom cotton was tweeting yesterday and both of them were saying that these individuals could actually get 10 years behind bars because there is the veterans memorial preservation act title 18 of the u.s. code section. steve: that's already on the books. ainsley: 10 years for destruction of a veterans memorial. the protesters that were trying to take down the andrew jackson statue were chanting hey, hey, ho, ho, andrew jackson has got to go. one person said welcome to the az, the autonomous zone. you are now leaving the u.s. so, yes, the president is vow is he going to sign an executive order making sure these cities guard these monuments so that this doesn't happen. the d.c. police, u.s. parks had to get out there. they used a chemical irritant to disperls the crowd. officers were hit with objects and numerous people arrested.
brian: add something to the trail of tears. martin van bur buren was presid. even hour had the plan to invade fidel castro's cuba and kennedy that used the plan. martin van buren used the plan he thought jackson left for him and ended of up being a disaster for the indian community and stain on our country. but he also adopted an american end i can't believe son. and he also, yes, he fought indians. the american indians were the tribes that fought with the british against us in the war of 1812. i don't know if you were rooting for the british in the war of 1812 but i'm not. steve: i was triking to explain why there has been anger toward jackson. that particular statue in washington for a while. meanwhile as we saw in griff's report, they spray painted on st. john's church bhaz black house autonomous zone. well now that's on the east coast, on the west coast, remember the chaz or chop? well, the mayor said yesterday,
she has had enough. because they had three people shot over the weekend. and what they are going to do is they are slowly going to phase out the chop or the chaz, and the police are going back to these precincts. this is victory for law and order. here's the mayor, jenny derken. >> the gun violence unfolding at night is not only wrong it also is underpalestining and distracting from the message for change that we are hearing in the street and so many of the peaceful protests we are working with the community to bring this to an end. will be returning to the east pry 60. we will do it peacefully and in the near future. it is clear while the physical space is important, we are going to focus our greatest efforts on reimagining policing itself. steve: it's interesting because one of the people who died over
the weekend, the police chief, carmen best seemed to suggest yesterday according to the seattle times, one of the laws ordinances passed last week which banned tear gas, she made it sound as if she felt that the coming could use that to get to the victim faster and might be alive today. she said right now what the will officers have are riot batons and handguns and that is not sufficient, ainsley. ainsley: 25 activists and volunteers who support chop. and they sent an open letter to the organizers. they said look, we want to set up at least a safe space on the outskirts of the zone. we can create signs that say intoxicated people are not welcome. also asking for a curfew to prevent destructive behavior at night. we will continual to watch that. brian, do you want to set this
up? brian: this mayor is an embarrassment. this mayor says the summer of love and no end to how long the autonomous zone would last. and as predicted by every law enforcement expert of people in the seattle area, they say this is going to be violent it. is crazy in there. she called all those people essentially out of touch and didn't know what they were talking about. she gave up the police precinct and embarrassed the whole police force and now going to crack down and say it's time to come in. this has to be embarrassment. embarrassment to other mayors, as liberal as you may be, understand the down side. people will die if you tell the police to back out and you put in a cabinet drawer law and order. and that's what this presidential run is going to be about. it's going to be less about biden and trump and more about what you see in seattle and then the results we all are witnessing in seattle. tough decide what you want. ainsley: the one who died on saturday 19 years old. the one who was shot on sunday 17 years old schott in the arm. brian: cops couldn't get in and they were forced to retreat that
humiliation is going to force a mass resignation. you just watch. steve: brian, when you were at the white house. i don't know if you saw across the street over by the black lives matter plaza apparently over the last number of days a number of tents have been assembled that's where people have been congregating yesterday the police said you know what? we have got to end it now it's a public safety issue. way too close to the traffic. so they cleared the tents out. but, there were a lot of people down in tulsa over the weekend, not as many as the president was planning on, brian. they had suggested maybe a million i'm sure that came up with your conversation with potus as well. brian: got a new story when i walked in there from foxnews.com that talked about fox coming with the highest ratings in the history of our network on saturday to watch his rally quhe talks about how to go forward with rallies he said he will keep that in mind.
this is what i asked
him first time as candidate did you not sell out an arena. >> when i went there it was the first time. i heard two weeks of nothing you are going to die if you go. you are going to die. you will never live again, you will never breathe again if you walk into that very beautiful arena. they treated us very nicely, except for one problem. they called a curfew so people that were in line had to leave. had you people sitting, waiting for four or five days in advance and they called a curfew and they had to leave. i don't know where they went but they had to leave. you know that then i called up and i said shouldn't be curfew. i called the mayor. and i said mayor, you can't do a curfew, it's not fair to our people. they called a curfew because you had some very bad people coming. they did come and the police did a good job. buff they called a curfew, number one.
number two, you had nothing but horrible press for a week and a half, two weeks leading up to it that you were going to be in bad shape if you walked into the arena, and various other things. now, despite that we actually had a good crowd. for anybody else it would be a good crowd. i agree with you it's the only time that i have had a vacant seat sings i came down the escalator with the first lady. but, this just came out, as you came, in you didn't give this to me. but this just came out and people have to see this. trump rally -- do you see what that says? -- gives fox news the largest saturday night audience in its history. so, my speech the other night largest audience in the history on fox on saturday night. that covers many many years and many, many big shows this speaks now. online it was even bigger than this. so online you have many
different sites. but biggest thing in a long time. now, noble is going to write that the reason i talk about it is because if you don't tell it yourself. brian: you can't say nobody. >> no, no. fox put it out. fox put it out. so it's the biggest, largest saturday night audience in its history. nobody is going to say that i will say it. i'm saying it now. if i didn't say it. noble is going to pic it up because the fake news won't do that think about what that means. a lot of people saw it. a lot of people went to stall and it was rough because they had, you know, so-called protesters, anarchists and various other people and they said let's go home and watch it on television. this is much more important. we had a very nice crowd of warriors. they were warriors. but first empty seat. but these are the best ratings we have ever h i think that means something. because that, to me, is like a poll. and online
even better. steve: do you know what's telling about that you know,
congratulations to us at fox because we had the biggest saturday night in prime time ever. but the lesson is the fact that carried it from the beginning to the end live. couple of times i clicked over to cnn and msnbc and they weren't carrying it. so, obviously, there is an interest in it. i think a lot of people tuned in in the beginning to see is there going to be trouble because there were stories about anarchists and that's why they did institute that curfew going forward. and then, you know, i clicked over again and all they were talking about on one of the other channels was the crowd size. they actually weren't listening to the president but they were showing the inside of the arena. maybe the lesson is, if you show people will watch it. ainsley: do you know what i take away from this. you saw the crowds, and if you are a supporter of the president, you might think oh, gosh, he is going to be in trouble in november because he couldn't fill the seats. now, you look at these numbers, people did just not want to got rally. many people in fear about being
in big crowds like that. steve: absolutely. ainsley: look at those numbers and compare them 7.7 million total viewers on saturday night. do you know how many the draft got 8 million. the draft got a little more than fox on saturday night. that's huge. everyone around the country watches the draft. trump's state of the union address 8.2 million. those are big numbers for fox. but, yeah, the curfew thing. i'm glad you asked him about that. all those people out there waiting in line to get inside. and they're sitting out there on lawn chairs. many of them had been out there several days and implement the curfew because they were scared of the violence. those people in line had to leave. i wish they would have said if you are peaceful and sitting in line we will allow to you stay so you can get inside. brian: couple of things to steve want point yesterday, got to be in open air. steve: absolutely. we have been saying that for weeks on this show. brian: you could also say diminished crowd size. if you are comfortable coming
out. i'm going to be in arizona. if you are comfortable coming out i'm going to be in north carolina. i understand if you don't want. to say watch we will be streaming. this is the message i will be bringing to november. the other thing is clearly friction between the old band and this band. of the trump campaign. corey lewandowski was critical and others of the way they are running things now. and i'm wondering if there is going to be a merger, a mind meld between them. meanwhile coming up straight ahead, crisis in chicago as the city sees worst week of gun violence in years. what is happening and can it be stopped? we will talk to a local pastor who has made it his mission to end the violence, next.
to help give you the speed, reliability, and security you need. tools to manage your business from any device, anywhere. and a team of experts - here for you 24/7. we've always believed in the power of working together. that's why, when every connection counts... you can count on us. steve: the city of chicago has been rocked by worst weekend of gun violence so far this year.
listen to this. over the weekend, at least 104 people were shot, including 14 who were killed. it also involved five miners, all over the city on father's day weekend. what can be done to stop the violence. let's talk to the cre of projecthood pastor corey brooks in new beginnings church in chicago. pastor, good morning to you. >> good morning. thank you for having me on your show. >> it's good to have you back. that is a jaw dropping number. what's going on. >> well, as we see almost every summer, a lot of violence is going on. we have to continue to do something about it. we're facing a city that has a lot of broken homes and broken homes lead to broken people. a lot of disenfranchised people. a lot of people who -- young men who have dropped out of high school and educational system is failing them. also, economic system where they are not participating in the american dream. a lot of that is resulting in violence every single day.
steve: how much of it has to do -- i know here in new york city i was reading a "new york post" article this morning about how shootings in new york city are skyrocketing. and the cops say it could actually be the new normal because of the increased scrutiny over the last couple of weeks since the killing of george floyd. >> it could be some people feel like the police probably are being more releaksed as a result of being a little more to do something. however, i feel like this is something we have been having in chicago for some time. i meal like the police are doing the best job that they can. i don't think that defunding the police is the answer to our question. i think the problem is that we really are facing some serious issues in our community. and we in our community have to step up and do something about it. we can't wait for government or the police to save us. we have to take responsibility ourselves. steve: sure.
i know you have a plan and you have been talking about it for quite a while. if people watching right now could think of one thing you could do in chicago to improve the situation, what would it be. >> young black boys early on. we have to get involved in the lives of these young black men and young black boys. some of them are fatherless as a result of a lot of their fathers incarcerated or absent from the home in whatever reason. we have to get back involved in the lives 6 these young men if we're ever going to settle the issue of the violence we see every single day. >> great advice. pastor corey brooks joining us from chicago. we know you have your hands full. thanks for spending your tuesday with us. >> absolutely. >> all right. good luck to you. meanwhile, new york city where we are right now getting back to business after entering phase 2 of reopening yesterday. how is it going so far? we will talk to restaurants owner. they have outdoor dining. they are coming up next. ♪ ♪

♪ ainsley: president trump sounding off on former national security advisor john bolton has his new book hits shelves today saying he should go to jail for plusing classified information. >> here to react is fox news senior judicial analyst
judge andrew napolitano. judge, in those comments the president made yesterday anticipating the release of his book today, he expanded on what legally he has to go on with that i want to see what you think about the president's ca case. >> john bolton came out and said that doesn't work with country to country. what's your reaction? >> this is guy with no personality. all he wanted to do was drop bombs on everybody he was one. people who got us in a war in the middle east. recently i said what did you think? i think made the right decision. i said you lost me there it was
the worst decision in the history of our country. i know you may disagree with that well now you might agree. at the time you would have, you know, felt differently. but also, the libyan model, do you know what that means, right? look it up. one of the dumbest things ever said, i think defaced th deface. libyan model would set us back, you have no idea. john bolton was a stupid guile and a guy with no heart. and he also had a statement that he would lie whenever he had to. he has that statement. it's a well-known statement. and i fired him. and i didn't think it was a big deal. i wasn't around him very much. but, what he did do is he took classified information and he published it during a presidency. one thing to write a book after. during and i believe he is a criminal
and i believe frankly he should go to jail for that.
brian: judge, i don't know if you have read the book, but what do you think? >> yeah. no. i have not read the book, brian. my familiarity with the book is based upon the legal pleadings that the doj filed and quite frankly on your terrific interview with him yesterday which is very enlightening. the president has a good point. it's almost unheard of that someone would be accused rrnl stealing national security secrets during the same presidency. but the justifiable department halls two problems here. one is they waited too long too late to bring this action to stop the book from being published before a court if this was so serious why weren't you here a month ago why did you wait until 250,000 copies of his book had been distributed? the other is i don't know what the secrets are in this book and the judge didn't know what the secrets were in the book until they went into chambers with
just john bolton's lawyer and the doj lawyers and the judge and the press wasn't there and they pointed out what the national security secrets are. so at some point we will find out, brian, just how serious and how damaging our world is if it's serious and damaging, the president is right. the justice department can pursue john. they can get a judge to order simon and shuster, his publisher, to preserve all income derived from the sale of the book and the justifiable department can attempt to seize that. all that time persuade a grand jury that this was a criminal act so the president is right. the issue is was this a criminal act. are there secrets in there one last thing, brian. in the doj's complaint against john bolton they reflect at one point he did receive clearance for the book. he did. and then a new team came in headed by bob o'brien, the current national security advisor and that team said
shouldn't be published got to get them out. steve: judge, you know from the filing what it also said was because mr. bolton contacted the department -- or the nsa and said okay, you are going to sign off on this and they said on may the 7th, they said we will let you know on, i think, june 19th, last friday. but the books had already been published. so, what going forward whether or not they find look for criminal liability, is this really, you know, once played out in court? >> probably not. steve. that's a great question. everybody is going to have to testify if they do, including the people no longer in the national security council in donald trump's white house who authorized the printing of the
book several months ago and on which john bolton relied when he told hills publisher you can go ahead and print it. it will be a little bit embarrassing. the president knows what these secrets are i don't, we don't. it depends on what they're and how damaging they might be. the justice department might be wise to sit on its hands. it might be unwise to sit on its hands. we are going to have to wait and see. ainsley: judge, the people who are the die hard trumpers, the liberals who hate him are not going to vote for him. he will vote how does this effect the middle of the road is someone who hasn't made up their mind yet? >> that's a great question. the president is doing a very effective job, i think as he did with brian yesterday. in undermining john bolton's credibility. in fact, i saw some old collision of an interview did i with john bolton on my old freedom watch show on fox bills
in which he says sometimes certain truths are so strong you have to lie in order to protect them. john what are you talking about? i said would you lie to protect a truth he? said yes, of course i would. i don't know, ainsley, if the american people really get into the wise on that i think the american people will take the big picture on donald trump. either you like him because of what he is doing or don't like him because of the way he does it. brian: judge, i don't know how did you it. that background your head is perfect between your lamps. i don't know. >> every morning somebody gets in my ear and says move a half an inch this way. move a half an inch that way. move back, please. i can't wait until i'm back in the studio with you guys. ainsley: i know. it is nice to be back. those chairs are beautiful by the way. thanks, judge, for being with us. steve: legal segment. ainsley: he has great tastes.

restrictions? here to break it down for success charles payne, host of making money on fox business. hey, charles. >> hey, good morning, ainsley. ainsley: good morning. >> it's really kind of common sense. but this is what we need, this is the tonic that we needed as we are living with covid-19 and the relation thathe realizatione could be soon or will month away. this is part of society getting back to work interacting with others at a social distance. these states that have waited a long time listen, new york city, the epicenter of all of this, i think they made quite a few mistakes along the way. this is obviously very welcome news. you will see it register in the economy. remember, new york state itself is a large chunk of g.d.p. it's much bigger chunk of g.d.p. for the country than the population. this is extremely important. the tristate area, which all revolves around new york city is a $1.8 trillion economy.
we needed this badly. ainsley: do you know who my heart goes out to the people who are trying to sell their apartments in new york city and just going to sit there because people are going to watch to see what happens with new york. talking to freangetsd she owns buildings here in the city. that's how her family makes money rent out spaces to office and people are not paying and then many of those offices are closing up shop and moving elsewhere. have you heard of anything like this. >> absolutely. that's the new reality. you know, my -- from my own small business, my lease was over i think march, april we didn't renew. work from home until we have the ability to all gather together back in an offers setting. and of course before that big exodus out of new york including a myriad of reason high taxes and other factors. this is going to make it tough on certain parts of new york's economy without a doubt. bounces back and business also
[shouting] steve: we start this hour of "fox & friends" on this tuesday, june 23rd, with a fox news alert. those are images from our nation's capital overnight. rioters clash with d.c. police as they try to create a black house autonomous zone about a block from the white house, ainsley. ainsley: that's right a few hours earlier protesters using a rope. you can see right there to try to take down a statue of president andrew jackson in lafayette square park. and once again targeting st. john's episcopal church. they wrote bhaz. black house autonomous zone. brian: i think they need security over there griff jenkins is live in washington. the president just tweeted about this whole story moments ago, right? griff: he sure did. let me tell you what the president is saying actually. let me go right to that tweet he says this. i have authorized the federal government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such
federal property in the u.s. with up to 10 years in prison. veterans memorial preservation act or such other laws that may be pertinent. he continues: this action is taking effective immediately but used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. there will be no exceptions it. comes after civil unrest returns to the streets. guys. in that area mayor bowser proclaimed black lives matter and protesters trying to establish something similar to seattle. as you mentioned, ainsley, calling it the black awmedz. >> saint john's bhaz written on its columns. this is the same church by the way arsonists set on fire last month. the president issuing that tweet. but you know one of the group's organizing the autonomous zone tweeted overnight, quote: despite reports to the contrary, bhaz was held. bhaz currently exists of blm de blasio and h street from 17th to
vermont where barricades have formed to protect bhaz activists from sleeping and getting hit by cars. senator tom cotton. >> mob doesn't stop statues. rioters have already torched police precincts minneapolis. churches and synagogues have been vandalized. next, perhaps the mob will target the homes of police officers. and soon enough, the mob may come for you. and your home and your family. >> meanwhile interior secretary david barnhart. saying let me be clear we will not bow to anarchists, law and order will prevail, and justin will be served. as tensions rise in d.c. i reached out a couple times over mayor mueller bowser. she hasn't tweeted or put out a statement. we will see if we hear more today. brian, ainsley, steve? steve: last night the activity over in lafayette square around the jackson statue was obviously
very well organized because if you were on the ground level, you just saw hundreds of people who were locking their arms around the statue. inside the metal pickerington p. some dressed in goggles and black. they scaled the statue. they draped ropes around jackson, tried to pull it off the pedestal. somebody scrolled killer on the pedestal. the protesters then, when the police came, in the u.s. park police came in to move them back, protesters threw things at the officers. one woman threw a folding chair, hit an officer during the protest. and he just staggered arranged, obviously he was hurt. it will be interesting if she was arrested, ainsley. >> brian was down there. he left the show. and went down there for a special that's going to air on sunday night. a tour of the white house. and that happened, brian, right after you left? brian: we were talking about
what he was going on war on monuments. over 100 torn down or defiled. andrew jackson. he has a bust of him and portrait as you see between us. i asked him about this. and he is alarmed by it. you saw that again this morning. this was an hour before this incident. >> we are in a war on history. they want to take jackson statue out of new orleans without the battle of new orleans not the same country. >> i don't like it at all. i don't like anything that's going on. federal i have stopped. i have stopped federal. a lot of states are weak. a lot of people are weak. and they are allowing it to happen. hey, it's going over a little bit around the world now. they want to remove the statue of gandhi. all he wanted was peace. they want to take down ulysses s. grant. he's the one that stopped the confederates, right? he was a great general. nobody -- last 10 or 15 years.
brian: look at james monroe and james madison. one thing they had they were brilliant. they had slaves. how do we grow as a country but, yet, not forget our past? >> so, you have to understand history and tough understand the culture and so many other aspects of our country. and people can study that and they can hate it and let's all hate it. but you can't take down george washington wants statue and half of our country is named after washington. you can't -- we have to remember the heritage that the culture of our country. this is less important but very important. some of the things they are trying to destroy are magnificent pieces of art. have you ever seen an area where removed and put blacktop over the top put asphalt over the top and that was the end and it was center of the town or a village?
and now the statue is gone and the whole village is like a different place. here's the other problem i have. a lot of these people know what they are taking down i watch them on television and see what's happening. they are ripping down things and they have no idea what they are ripping down. they started off with the confederate then they go to ulysses s. grant. they would knock down lincoln there is a group that wants to take down lincoln. they haven't figured out exactly why yet. george washington. thomas jefferson. i have stopped them twice now from going over to the jefferson memorial. if i weren't president, they would have knocked out -- if a guy like biden was president, they will knock down the jefferson memorial. not going to happen. brian: where are the historians, where is the history teachers and drags saying listen this is our history, for better or worse we have grown from here, gotten better. fought a war because of this. let's acknowledge it.
i have seen other people say let's put a plaque alongside that third put of the united states, founder of the university of virginia at the same time owned x amount of slaves and did f, y, and z. put the whole story on there if you want. don't eliminate the story. why is the president alone and tom cotton alone in fighting this? why isn't this something to unify? let's debate it? what is so great about our generation that we think we are so perfect that they don't -- these people in the past made such an impact on the world don't live up to our standards of a shirtless skateboarder who wants to put his skateboard through a cop car is also to going to take down andrew jackson, i don't think so. steve: ultimately it's vandalism. and how the localities decide to prosecute it if at all. the president that great interview, brian that you did in the oval office. he said when it comes to federal, we have stopped it. and obviously he was talking
about the veterans memorial preservation act wind up with 10 years in jail. but the president also just signed that executive order this morning, essentially telling the localities to take care of those statues. ainsley, you know there are some localities where we have seen some of that vandalism and people were not charged. ainsley: yeah. we are having these conversations in our country now that has needed to be had for a long time. after george floyd that was just despicable. everyone agrees on that. it's led to new conversations. and even though the looting we don't agree with and you might not agree with taking down these statues and these monuments. it is something that our country needs to address. so hopefully down the road good will come from this and we'll be able to unify together as a country and listen to one another and love one another. no matter if you agree or you disagree. steve: ainsley, let me just interrupt. i just saw this item and this goes to the heart of what you
are talking about. the governor of rhode island signed an executive order yesterday. apparently they are going to try to change the name of rhode island because the official name is the state of rhode island and providence plantation. and the plantation part is problematic. so, she has signed -- the governor has signed an executive order they will not refer to it as anything other than rhode island going forward; however, to make it official the people of that state have got to vote on it and change the constitution. brian: it will remain the smallest state. we know that. steve: with a different name. ainsley: do you know the smallest country? the vatican. yesterday you were at the white house and talking to the president, brian, about the rally on saturday and many people are focusing on empty seats and all of that and some are focusing on he said slow down the testing. most -- his supporters say that he was joking. here is what the president said
first we will play the soundbite at the rally and get the president's response when brian asked him about it. watch. this we saved hundreds of thousands of lives and all we do is get hit on like we are terrible and what we have done with the ventilators and with the medical equipment and with testing. you know, testing is a double edged sword. we have tested now 25 million people. it's probably 20 million people more than anybody else. when you do testing to that extent, you are going to find more people and find more cases. so i said to my people slow the testing down, please. brian: his point was like the 30,000 emails that everyone took literally. he was kidding. if you saw the change in his voice. i watched at the time. no way to slow the testing down in real life. guys, doing too good a job.
i asked him. do you want to expand on that. >> we got so good at testing. what we did is a miracle between the ventilators and all of the things we did, we got so good at testing that we have done 25 million tests. we have done 20 or 21 million more than germany and these other countries. if you do more tests, that means you are going to have more case cass we have done so good showing have more cases everyone is saying we have more cases. we have more cases because they are doing more testing. they can test a kid who has sniffles and going to be better in about two hours because they're young kids have done unbelievably well. their immune system i guess or whatever is stronger. so when you do 25 million tests. you are are going to show you have cases. and by doing all those tests while it's good to do them in one way, in another way it makes us look bad. brian: do you mean slow down testing? >> i don't mean slow down but if
we did slow down or didn't do some. say if we did 5 million tests instead of 25 we would be so low. not only did we do a lot of testing but far more advanced. 5-minute test and tests they don't think of other countries. you hear about south korea. they are always congratulating me on the great job testing. the media, fake news doesn't get the word out. that's why it's good to speak to you. we have done 25 million tests. that means we show a lot of cases and that's all fine but it makes us look bad even though
it should make us look good. brian: is he not saying slow the test. we got so good the tests are so high. he doesn't care if he is misinterpreted he sits there and says obviously i'm kidding. people see my rallies. is he exaggerate. he exaggerates himself walking down the ramp at the rally. if other networks instead of taking a wide shot of empty seats actually put the sound up
instead of cherry picking different sound bites they mift have a understanding rallies are a performance in many ways. steve: speak of networks, fox news channel notched the highest saturday night prime time rating in the hills industry of this channel with the trump rally in tulsa. obviously a lot of people wanted to see what was going to happen. how many people would turn out. 7.7 million. it peaked at 9 p.m. with 8.2 million. cnn and msnbc did not carry it live in its entirety. and their ratings were not so high. but, if you noticed in that soundbite with brian and the president in the auditorium, the president was holding up a piece of paper. in this sound bite we find out what's on that paper. brian: first time since as a candidate or as president you did not sell out an arena. did that make you want to? >> when i went there, it was the
first time. i heard two weeks of you are going to die if you go. you will never breathe again if you walk into that very beautiful arena. they treated us very nicely except for one problem. they called a curfew. so people that were in line had to leave. had you people sitting, waiting for four or five days in advance and they called a curfew and they had to leave. i don't know where they went, but they had to leave. you know that and then i called up and i said shouldn't be curfew. called the mayor and i said mayor, you can't do a curfew. it's not fair to our people. they called a curfew because you had some very bad people coming. they did come and the police did a good job. but they called a curfew number one. number two, you had nothing but horrible press for a week and a half, two weeks leading up to it. that you were going to be in bad shape if you walked into the arena.
and various other things. now, despite that, we actually had a good crowd. for anybody else it could be a good crowd. i agree with you. it's the only time that i have had a vacant seat since i came down the escalator with the first lady. but, this just came out. as you came, in you didn't give this to me. buff this just came out. and people have to see this. trump rally -- see what that says. gives fox news the largest saturday night audience in its history. so, my speech the other knifed t was the largest audience in the history of fox on saturday night. that covers many, many years and many, many big shows. online, it was even bigger than this. so, online you have many different sites but they say it was the biggest thing in a long time. now, nobody is going to write that the reason i talk about it is because if you don't tell it yourself nobody else will you will because you have been fair. fox put it out.
so it's the biggest, the largest saturday night audience in its history. nobody is going to say that i will say it. i am saying it now. if i didn't say it. nobody is going to pick it up because the fake news won't do that think about what that means. a lot of people saw it. a lot of people went to tulsa and it was rough because they had, you know, called protesters anarchists and various other people. and they said let's go home and watch it on television. but this is much more important. we had a very nice crowd of warriors. they were warriors. first empty seat. these are the best ratings we have ever had. brian: interesting. >> i think that means something. that to me is like a poll. online even better. >> that was fascinating, brian. you saw it right theren the paper. the point of this is so many people were probably too afraid to go to the first rally right after covid, many of us are still in the middle of this. we are in phase 2 here in new
york. but you wanted to watch it with your family members at home. so, the democrats or other networks will say those empty seats just a sign he is not going to win in november. when you look at these ratings, so many people were tuned. in many people out there haven't made up their minds yet. steve: when you talk about big crowds, senator rick scott of florida said yesterday when it comes to the rnc in the month of august, down in jacksonville, he says that people need to social distancing inside the arena and people need to wear mask and the senator was very emphatic about that yesterday at that tulsa rally, masks were optional. did you see a few, but not many. brian: should be very good natural environment. the president will probably have about 10 events before jacksonville in august. come up with a way to find both sides. ainsley: president wants four debates and biden agreed to three. brian: he will have to come out
of his basement. i don't think president trump wants to go to his house. we will have to see. 200 miles of new border wall now complete. the president set to head to arizona this morning to mark the milestone. our next guest will be with him. acting dhs secretary chad wolf joins us live on what this means for border security next. ♪ taking carol of business ♪ it's all right ♪ taking care of business ♪ and working overtime. ♪ can my side be firm? and my side super soft? yes, with the sleep number 360 smart bed, on sale now, you can

mr. wolf, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. steve: 200 miles. i know a milestone the president would like to double that by the end of the year 500 by 2021. remind people how the president figured out how to fund this because the democrats in congress did not want him to get the money to do what he did. >> absolutely. not only is the president and the administration worked with congress, but we have also taken action when congress refused to fund border wall security. and that's what we have done. we have over $9 billion dedicated to the border wall system. it's being built as you indicated. we are a little over 215 miles today. the president is going down to commemorate the 200th mile that's been constructed. as you indicated we are going to see about 450 miles by the end of this calendar year. it's a great accomplishment. it's a commitment to the president made to the american people to protect our southwest border. steve: something else of interest. and it's in your purview is yesterday the president extended
for 60 days the visa freeze allowing people to come into the country to work. and instead intend to free up 525,000 jobs for americans who have been impacted by the pandemic. can you explain how that is going to work. >> the president suspended immigrant visas for 60 days. what the order yesterday does is extends that ban through the end of the year as well as nonimmigrant visas. temporary visas that people come in from out of the country, foreign workers come in. the president said as we build this economy back up, he wants american workers first. he wants to give them the opportunity to come back into the workforce, regain their jobs and contribute to this economy. so what we did is we pause a number of these visas and we are going to allow americans to compete for those jobs first and foremost. steve: do we have any evidence that that is actually working? >> absolutely. i think what you see is you see the job numbers continuing to rise month over month.
the unemployment starting to deline a little as well. economy is rebounding, pro-growth strategy that the president has put in place is working. we just need to give the american workers another leg up and by suspends these visas we believe we are doing just that. steve: it's your belief in another 60 days they will resume them? >> no. so these visa suspensions are through the end of this calendar year. so through december 31st. steve: all right. i understand. chad wolf. the acting secretary of department of homeland security, got real busy day today. you are going to fly coast to coast. thanks for spending a little of your tuesday with us. >> thank you, steve. steve: thank you, sir. new york governor andrew cuomo passing the blame for nursing home deaths in new york state. >> because we had more people die. because the federal government missed the boat. steve: one state assembly woman says the feds need to

jillian: good morning and welcome back. polls are now open in new york, kentucky and virginia for today's primaries. there are several key races to watch. in new york. democratic congressman elliott angling is facing a tough challenge from progressive backed jamal bowman. alexandria ocasio-cortez faces three democratic opponents in her first re-election bid. a kentucky democrat amy la graph and charles booker running for senate. winner faces senate majority leader mitch mcconnell in november. new yorkers tired of noisy fireworks are sending a clear
message to mayor bill de blasio to make it stop. >> we can't sleep. mr. mayor, you won't sleep. [horn honking] >> overnight residents parked outlines of new york's gracy mansion and honked their horns. the city has reported nearly 850 firework complaints just this month. a spokesperson for the mayor says he will announce an agency to crack down on the fireworks this morning. ainsley? >> okay. thanks, jillian. new york's governor andrew cuomo facing backlash after order that directed nursing homes to take in covid-19 patients. in total the state reporting 7800 confirmed or presumed nursing home deaths. cuomo had this to say about that order. >> do you take responsibility for that order and the role it may have played in those deaths? >> the republicans definitely are playing politics. >> these are people's parents lives. >> yes. i understand that yes, we had
more people die in nursing homes than anywhere else, because we had more people die. because the federal government missed the boat and never told us that this virus was coming from europe and not from china. >> here to react is new york state assembly member and g.o.p. congressional candidate nicole, good morning to you. >> good morning, ainsley. ainsley: assembly woman i understand you are calling for an investigation now, right? >> sure. i may have been the first person to call for an investigation into this decision; however, i'm not the last. and certainly it's not falling along party lines. we have the very powerful democratic health assembly chairman of the committee here in new york state legislature that has also called for an independent investigation. and i have to tell you what he is saying is not accurate. if you look at the directive and even cms administrator verma came on your show and talked
about this. they say nursing homes can accept but they had to be put in a separate wing and they could also turn them away. here in new york they really weren't giving a choice. as a matter of fact, the nursing homes that i have spoken with have told me that they felt that they were pressured in being forced to take individuals even though they couldn't provide a care for them and then on top of it the governor didn't provide them with the proper p ppe and safety equipment to stop the spread in the nursing homes. there are two reasons why this needs to be investigated further. ainsley: have you heard the governor or any of the governors from those three or four states who were doing this why they did that when they were telling everyone, when the cdc was telling everyone, elderly, underlying conditions. you are most at risk. >> it makes absolutely no sense. and the fact that other states didn't do it, just shows that this was not a mandate from the federal government. as a matter of fact, you have
congressional members like elise stefanik from new york and steve scalise the minority whip who have joined my efforts. as you know, ainsley, i'm also running for congress. today happens to be primary day in new york. when i get there in january, i intend to work with them and follow through in making sure that there is an independent evaluation, because why cannot trust the new york attorney general to do it. after all, governor cuomo hand picked that attorney general. so there is no way that there could be an independent investigation here in the state of new york. ainsley: real quickly, what does it mean for the families if there is an investigation and if there is found that there is negligence. janis dean our meteorologist on morning show she lost both of her in-law's in two different facilities. father-in-law in one and mother-in-law in another. she is calling for an investigation, too. >> absolutely. there are so many families like the dean family and very sad and i have so many that live right here in my district. and i have to tell you, it's not just heart-breaking for the families. >> it's heart breaking for the administrators of the nursing homes who knew it was not the
right thing to take these individuals. in and also the staff members. and i have to tell you, evening after the u.s. navy comfort ship came to our shores, the javits center was set up. he still kept that directive in place. he could have easily changed it at that point and said we are going to move people to these areas that were meant for covid positive patients only. ainsley: all right. asemably woman, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. chop is on the chopping block. seattle police vowing to dismantle the autonomous zone in the city. lawrence jones is here to discuss it coming up next.

bring this to an end. capitol hill belongs to 9/11 this city. spd will be returning to the east presingle digit we will do it safely and in the future. it is clear while the philadelphia space is important, we are going to focus our greatest efforts on reimagining policing itself. brian: what a law and order mayor, really taking control three weeks after someone took the center of their center away. lawrence jones fox news analyst and fox nation host. autonomous zone has gotten violent. lawrence, are you surprised? >> no. and she shouldn't be surprised either. this is a science project gone bad. look, this had nothing to do with george floyd. this had nothing to do with the movement and the broken relationship between the community and the police. these were retired occupy wall street people that decided to go and take advantage of a
movement. but, this really shouldn't surprise the audience, either. i have been traveling around the country for the last year highlighting liberal cities. and these sort of experiments that they do. and seattle was one of the places where people were able to just do drugs on the street, crime running rampant. and it seemed like no one wanted to say anything about it. i just find it discussin disgust took the lost of life before the mayor decided to shut it down. steve: they are not exactly shutting it down. she did say the police are going to return to the east precinct which is good but didn't really have a time table. the other thing is they are really going to phase it out after 8:00 p.m. at night. so, in other words, you can be there in that area until 8:00 at night and then rather than have the police ask you to leave they are just going to ask you to. how is that going to work out. >> it's dumb.
i don't get. what is the objective of this. like you can have a conversation and sit down and talk about reform but that is not their message. first of all, it's disgusting. right? this is not a sanitary environment. this is not conducive to the businesses that are there that have to deal with there are customers having to walk through. this is that the new standard? you want a place that is rent free, you just go up and set up tent? it's a dangerous precedent to set. but, again, i know the people that are down there on the ground and i have talked with these people before. they want change. and there has been to be a response. i get on here and rant about the disgusting nature of a lot of these progressive cities. but there has to be a republican response on the local level to counteract this message. brian: good point. >> it cannot be this hard to defeat these type of people. ainsley: all right. let's talk about bubba wallace.
we saw the story a few days ago. horrible story. someone that is racist and not a nice person has no love in their heart. has hate for people of other races, it seems. put a noose in his garage. as a result of that everyone in nascar rallied behind the only african-american driver. look at that they are pushing his car. this was at talladega. isn't that awesome? they're all supporting him and he is walking out front and take as selfie and posts it on social media and he only put one word and that is together. they are saying we stand behind you, we are trying to find out who do d. this they are looking at video of the garage to find out if they can discover who had access to it. your reaction, lawrence? >> you know, i don't watch nascar but i watched it yesterday because i wanted to
see them come together. they described to the world. ainsley: look is he getting emotional. steve: richard petty. >> one nation. i'm so proud of what they did that day. you know what? it sent a message to those who try to divide us you can't do it. we really can't. we are going to come out swinging together. ainsley: thanks so much, lawrence, for weighing in on all of that our country needs to be together and to unite. >> thanks, guys. we are one nation. ainsley: i know. got bless america. thanks so much, lawrence. brian: the fbi is investigating. we will get the answer to that soon. ainsley: jillian is upstairs. jillian: president trump is open to a second round of stimulus checks. "the washington post" reports the president has told aides he believes the payments will boost the economy. treasury secretary steven mnuchin has previously said the idea is being considered. the president also telling script news the next stimulus package will be, quote, very
generous. he said the bill would be bipartisan and unveiled in the next few weeks. a harvard student sues the university for refusing to lower tuition. breached contract by not making reduction by switching to remote learning because of covid-19. the student telling abc news he would have went somewhere else if he knew this would be the case. the law school plans to remain virtual in the fall and keep tuition at nearly $66,000. brett favre is clarifying his comments about colin kaepernick and pat tilman. tilman left football to fight for our country and died in afghanistan in 2014. >> pat tilman is another guy who did something similar and we regard him as a hero. i assume that hero status will be stamped with kaepernick as
well. jillian: here is what he tweeted then saying quote including tilman's name was not a comparison of the two but a recognition that they both sidelined their football dreams in pursuit of a cause. pat tragically lost his life, making the ultimate sacrifice, and deserves of the highest honor. baby is not so sure what her name is and amazon alexa is apparently to blame. >> emily? >> emily. alexa, your honor name is emily not alexa. oh my god what am going to do? >> the baby, obviously, as you can tell names emily only responding to the name alexa. her mom posting the video on tiktok writing i think we have a bit of an issue here. send it back to you. brian: she will grow out of it. steve: every time i talk to the producer sarah, my phone lights up and sire wants to help me. same thing.
jillian: i don't have siri or alexa activated i'm totally good. brian: alexa, put on fox news. so hopefully around the country. jillian: alexa, talk to janis dean. steve: alexa, how about the weather? here is janis dean. janice: as long as you don't ask alexa for the weather and ask janis for the weather i'm okay with that set records. behind us a cold front. along the cold front that's where we are starting to seat showers and thunderstorms for severe storms. especially if you live in texas and new mexico. but you can see widespread thunderstorms across the gulf coast, parts of the southeast, as well ass interior northeast later on this afternoon it. is very warm, again, out in california, the central valley and parts of northern california

ainsley: we start with a fox news alert. griff is in washington d.c., because there's a lot of chaos happening in the nations capitol , riot rioters have been clashing with the d.c. police as they try to create a black house autonomous zone outside of the white house: signs and graffiti still seen in the area this morning. brian: tucker opened up with that this morning and we'll have more, protesters also using rope s to try and take down a statue of president andrew jackson in lafayette square park you probably seen it if you ever been to washington and once again, targeting st. john's episcopal church, the president 's church. steve: and a live look there this morning, where officials have painted over the letters that's a live shot from lafayette square. all right griff jenkins is live in d.c. and griff, we heard the president tweeting about statues just within the last hour or so. griff: that's right, steve,
ainsley, brian, good morning the president has a warning but it's because of this civil unrest returning to the streets of d.c. but these protesters are trying to do what they did in seattle creating a black house autonomous zone. now, the chaz which is what spray painted on that church column at st. john's is actually being painted all over the place to include the veteran affairs building just next door to st. john's and remember that church is the same church that was set on fire last month and the protesters as we mentioned earlier today trying to tear down jackson's statue across the street from st. john's in lafayette park and the presidents warning is serious. he tweeted i've authorized the federal government to arrest anyone who vandalized or destroys any monument, statue or any other such federal property in the u.s. with up to 10 years in prison for the veterans memorial preservation act or such other laws that may be pertinent he continues this action is taken effective immediately but may
also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused there will be no exceptions; however there isn't any sign that this mob is backing down. one of the groups that's organizing this tweeted overnight that despite reports to the contrary, it was indeed held, and i'll tell you, capitol hill is getting involved too now senator tom cotton said on the floor yesterday, guys, that it doesn't stop at statues. he believes that by what we've seen with police precincts taken over and torching minneapolis to churches being vandalized in d.c. perhaps the mob would target homes of police officers and he said that the mob may come for you, your home and your family. very serious situation here in the nations capitol. and i can tell you guys no word from mayor bowser who first supported all of this spray painting black lives matter in the streets just north of the white house, but this morning, no word from her as things get a lot more serious , brian, ainsley, steve?
ainsley: thank you, griff. let's bring in south carolina gop senator tim scott to react to this. i know you're in washington senator scott. what is your reaction? did you see all of this happening yesterday? >> you know, i paid attention to the news reports but without any question, chaos and lawlessness has to be dealt with significant force, period. you know that the most vulnerable communities in a rural chaotic are among the ones most targeted so those folks who believe that whatever they are doing leads to a positive outcome it is ridiculous, it is wrong, and it is illegal, and the president's comments about having stiff terms should send shivers down the spine of these agitators. they are not a part of any protest. they are simply agitators trying to find a way to create anarchy, chaos and lawlessness. that is dangerous for every single person in this nation, especially the most vulnerable communities we have. brian: so yesterday the president was talking about
he was extremely concerned yesterday and today about the statues and tearing down of those statues but when people african americans like yourself see presidents that had slaves are you torn senator tim scott, on whether they should have statues? >> i'm not, actually, personal ly. i think we could have a robust debate about how to deal with the renaming of some military bases. there's some things we could have a serious debate about but this desire to purge all of history because it was ugly or negative really does not serve the american people well. i go right back to the selma bridge which is actually called the edmond bridge because we preserved the reality of how vicious people can be by keeping it named that bridge. that's why it was so important to see president obama and president bush standing together underneath that bridge to reinforce the fact that in
america, all things are possible , and in america, we may have flaws, we may have challenges but we did it together and we come together to overcome those challenges, and that's why i think oftentimes, preserving the history as ugly as it may have been can be a sign and symbol of how good it can be. if we want to do something why don't you put up a statue to booker t. washington. why don't you have a conversation about washington carver. these be positive steps. tearing down the history for the sake of anarchy is not how we make progress in this country. it never has been and it never will be because we are the united states of america. steve: indeed. brian: right. here is what the president said about this very topic yesterday. president trump: so how do we grow in a country but yet not forget our past? so you have to understand history and you have to
understand the culture and so many other aspects of our country, and people can study that and they can hate it and let's all hate it but you can't take down george washington's statue and half of our country is named after washington. you can't, we have to remember the heritage that the culture of our country. brian: he is for adding statues , and monuments too, and like booker t. washington. >> well if you think about it for me, remembering our history is really important. me celebrating all of our history be crazy. i'm not going to celebrate all of our history because all of us shouldn't be celebrated but we should remember it. it is a fantastic landmark for us to realize that progress has been made, progress needs to be made, and it only happens when we work together. that's why the president's comments were somber, measured, and consistent with history. we have to understand and
appreciate frankly embrace remembering the tragedies brought upon man by other men, and how men came together. people thought their brothers and sisters in the civil war, literal brothers and sisters, blood brothers and sisters for an oppressed voiceless people to be heard, to be seen, and to be free, so when that kind of carnage is a part of our history that's ugly too but we should celebrate the fact that we'll go to whatever length necessary to preserve this nation and the president, congress, democrats, republicans , black and white, we should come together and realize that there is an element, a minority element in this country , that doesn't want progress. they want anarchy. they don't want us to unify. they want us to be lawless. steve: there's that element of anarchy, senator, in the chop zone, in the chaz zone as we've been reporting over the last couple of weeks in seattle.
yesterday after three people were shot of this weekend the mayor said do you know what? it's probably time to pull the plug. watch. >> the gun violence unfolding at night is not only wrong. it also is undermining and distracting from the message for change that we are hearing in the street and in so many of the peaceful protests. we are working with communities to bring this to an end. capitol hill belongs to everyone in this city. spd will be returning to the east pre significant. we will do it peacefully and in the near future but it is clear while the physical space is important, we are going to focus our greatest efforts on re imagining policing itself. steve: okay, so what they're going to do, senator is slowly phase out that and ask people to please leave at 8:00 at night, because they had the trouble. but ultimately, what has happened and seattle's finally figuring this out, is that
activists hijacked what was initially peaceful protests about police brutality and other things and now, it has become this. >> yes well there's no doubt that this is no longer about george floyd and that's exactly where it started and it's where we should be. we can't put the two issues together. what the mayor said was fascinating from my perspective, she said that lawlessness has finally reached a point where they must act. the fastest way to keep lawlessness from reaching the point where you must act is to snuff it out at the beginning we should not allow the people in seattle to conflate positive pro protesting with agitating. there's two different issues. what we saw in autonomous zone was lawlessness. the fact that she allowed it to metastasize and now we have to bring more people in, she could have finished that the day after it started. it is really important for us to recognize whether it's
washington d.c., charleston, south carolina or seattle, washington, we can't have autonomous zones that are not a part of the united states of america. we have to be a country driven by order, structure, discipline. that is the only country where human flourishing at its highest potential is even possible. ainsley: senator let's talk about the justice act. i know you're spearheading this. what's going to happen this week with that and will it pass? >> well, i don't know that it will pass, ainsley. i will say this. i have been hearing from the leadership on my friends and senators on the democrat side say that their leaders do not want them to sign on for even a motion to proceed. it appears to me that if they follow their leadership, we will not have any discussion on the bill at all because they believe that police reform is a better election near issue than police reform is an issue to be solved for the vulnerable communities that started the entire discussion. i think that is as close to being a debacle.
brian: senator why not work with democrats and see if there's something you could put in there to get the 60 votes? >> oh, listen, we're willing to do so but in order to start that conversation, we have to first get the motion to proceed, which is simply a vote that says let's get on the bill, so that we can see what you want from your side , compare it to our side, and have some amendments to make it better. i'm open to an amendment process that improves the bill as long as we don't demonize police officers along the way, so i'm open to a discussion about improving the police reform objectives within the bill, and if we do that, then we'll have a robust underlying premise of the legislation. without doing that we're only having political talking points. steve: well you know, senator a lot of people looking in are going to be disappointed because over the last couple of weeks it sounded like washington d.c. wanted to do something but now, you suggested that the democrats that you've spoken to wanted as
an election year issue, so that they could say, you know, we are for law enforcement we are for much more than the republicans are. you know, nothings going to get done before and then the question is, is anything going to get done after the election? >> well steve, they are string ing the koolaid on, we'll have a sea change come november i think they're wrong but let me ask you this question, steve. i hear and i read in the house bill that they want more information so they can direct training in the right direction. that's the foundation of our bill. they say they want more training around deescalation that's in our bill. they say they want to have a chokehold band or reduce except for the life of the officer, that's in our bill. they say they want duty to intervene and studying the use of force. those are in our bill. they say they want us to look at recruiting more officers to reflect the diversity, the demographics in their city that's in our bill. they say they want to have more
information on best practices that's in our bill. they say they want to talk about mental health experts that's what the president's executive order says on co-responders it's in our bill. drug addiction in our bill. homelessness in our bill. their priorities fortunately and unfortunately for them, matches pretty well with the president's priorities, and those two matches really well with my priorities and the senate priorities on the republican side. so now we're having to ask a political question. if you get two-thirds of what you want out of the gate, why would you change the rules and change the goal post? it's a chokehold was the litmus test, but we had already put it in our bill so they changed the goal post. they do that because it seemed like they're more interested in campaigns than they are the vulnerable communities they say they serve, and when you feel like you own that vote, you
quit working hard for those people. ainsley: senator thank you so much for joining us. yes, ma'am have a good day. ainsley: jillian is upstairs with the headlines. jillian: good morning, that's right we begin with this. polls are now open in new york, kentucky and virginia for today 's primaries. there are several key races to watch. in new york, democratic congressman elliott angle is facing a tough challenge and has held his seat for 31 years and congresswoman cortez faces three democratic opponents in her first re-election bid in kentucky democrats amy mcgrath and charles booker are running for senate and the winner faces senate majority leader mitch mcconnell in november. today family and friends will say their final goodbyes to rayshard brooks in a private funeral. heards gathering to pay their respects at ebenezer baptist church in atlanta. martin luther king jr. served as a co-pastor until his

brian: democrats and republican s set to faceoff over dualing police reform plans this week you just heard us talking to tim scott about that and while monday it protesters are calling to defund our police , our next guest says we need to invest more in police training and train them like the military. here to explain retired navy seal officer, co-founder of front, jocko willink. he's also the author of the book leadership, strategy and tactic and host of jocko's podcast. so you think the answer to these problems are in training. what did you discover when you looked at the average police training regime? >> well, brian first of all, a lot of people now quoting me saying the police should be trained like the military. that's not what i'm saying. it's not the same tactics, and certainly military operations are definitely different than policing, and a lot of ways policing is more complex because you're always dealing with
civilians, the use of force is much more restrictive, rightful ly so, so it makes the job harder, and you always have a lot less people on your team. you know, military units you've got 30 or 40 people with you. police are often working alone. so the job is very different and we have to recognize those differences, but there are definitely some training methods and some lessons that we learned in the military that apply across-the-board and would certainly be applicable inside the police. the first of which being the frequency of training so we would spend 18 months preparing for a six-month deployment overseas. when you look at police, they get a matter of hours per- training of training per- year. think about that, so out of the gate, what i think is police should have about 1/5 of their time should be spent training. brian: yeah, you said between two and four hours of combative
training and you think that's insanity. you said you got to learn to detach sometimes mentally. this has got to become when you're in situations like this. learn to act calm under pressure , and that only comes from you say repetition. >> yeah. when i ran field training and the field training that i ran was not carrying logs around but i ran the tack think tactical training and we put these guys in highly stressful situations over and over and over again and the reason for that was we wanted to teach them how to control their emotions, how to take a step back, how to get control over their adrenaline and like you said how to detach from that situation, because when we get emotional we make bad decisions, especially with things that get chaotic. brian: yeah, you say you've got to stop, process, and then you make a good decision and as we see these all these body cams, and angles from the police car
we can really judge how someone's acting under pressure and you think it could all come into training and i think both sides kind of agree on that, joc ko, that more training, if you pay a man or woman to go through more training why wouldn't they want to do it? >> yeah, absolutely and then on top of that you do role playing scenarios where you learn to de escalate and everyone keeps using that word, let me tell you a little bit about it. that means when you approach someone, instead of causing them to become more emotional, because when you get emotional with them, they are going to become more emotional. we have to learn to calm things down, to deescalate and then of course, yes, you have to learn how to detain them if they are resisting and what that means is more hand-to-hand combatives training and this isn't training that teaches you how to hurt people. in fact, just the opposite is true. the more times you spend
training hand-to-hand, the more easily and the more safely you can detain people, and you know i'm a big support of ju jitsu will give police officers better ability to detain people without hurting them. brian: how do you feel about getting rid of the choke? >> the chokehold is a very good tool for people to use when you're trying to detain somebody and i think what you have here is the worse case scenario. people in washington d.c. literally dictating what can and cannot be used on the streets, and i'm going to tell you i've been choked thousands of times training ju jitsu. i've never been injured and i've never injured anyone. why? because i stayed attached and i learn and i know the moves and i use them correctly and so it is something that definitely needs to be discussed and anybody that
knows anything about defensive tactics and hand to hand combat knows that the chokehold is the most gentle way to sub due somebody. brian: right. that's very interesting because a lot of marshall artists are saying it's crazy to get rid of the chokehold but you don't want to kill someone with it you want to sub due them with it and both sides seem to agree on that and the people who are experts in it say don't agree so hopefully they are listening to you that's why law enforcement needs a seat at the table. jocko willink thanks so much. >> thanks for having me on brian. brian: we're going to listen to your podcast today and he always takes a picture to tell us how much earlier he's up than everybody else except for morning show hosts. meanwhile, straight ahead, protesters try tearing down a statue of andrew jackson in washington. the statue of teddy roosevelt being removed from the museum of natural history in new york city tammy bruce says this will only divide our country even more. solves nothing she'll explain. >> ♪ ♪

privacy people are looking for homes that can support not just working from home but also schooling at home, studying at home, and working out at home. you can't always find that in an older home. listen. >> the inventory is really viewed as obsolete by a lot of new home buyers. they are too far out the houses are 50 years old and require too much work. builders really capitalizing on that and building entry-level homes now that satisfy the demand for office space, home gym space. lauren: that's one of the reasons sales of previously- owned homes fell 9.7% last month, and inventory is tight for a buyer, ainsley, that wants a lot more. new home sales data come out at 10:00 this morning so we'll find out just how many homeowners are building their dream homes because the idea of what you want is certainly it's changing. i mean, i've got a cold call yesterday for my home the broker says the homes in your area are in desire right now.
do you want to sell? and i was like well i haven't even thought about that. ainsley: say what's the price! that depends. lauren: that's what i said i'm like is there an actual offer or you're just in wiring? she says she was just in wiring i don't know where it goes so we're staying put. ainsley: steve over to you. steve: thank you very much. meanwhile the debate over recovering controversial symbols expanding beyond confederate generals in washington d.c. yesterday, late in the day, protesters tried taking down the statue of andrew jackson before the u.s. park patrol shutdown the scene and here in new york city, the museum of american history, natural history, is removing a statue of teddy roosevelt that crit beings say glorifies colonialism and he is right there on the horse and an african american and indian american are on foot. here with reaction fox news contributor and fox nation host tammy bruce. tammy, this seems to be the number one topic in america right now the president has tweeted out he signed an
executive order this morning as well protecting things on federal property. are there some symbols, some statues that may have outlived their message and need to come down? >> you know, one of the problems we're dealing with now is that this is a conversation that is not limited even to that, and it's about mar xism, and the people controlling the narrative at this point is determined to cast everything in america's history, much of which has been difficult and bad, we had to have a civil war to correct a process that was going on, to end slavery but the dynamic with marxist is not to actually have a large conversation within the community and within america , which we've been having from our beginning. this is about erasing our past in its entirety, but more than that even, steve, it's about condemning us with no room for forgiveness. if you've noticed all the
condemnation about systemic racism and americans are racist and that, this and the other thing it is a condemnation but with no space for reconciliation and that's what's happening right now. they want the conversation to be about well those people were bad and obviously, they were defeated but we've seen this trend, steve, its gone from an argument about confederate statues to ghandi was defaced, andrew jackson, lincoln, the lincoln memorial at first, a lincoln statue, because inevitably, you know, look. the complaint about teddy roosevelt is that it's colonial and it represents could lean qualityism. we started as colonies. our history is colonial. the entire museum of natural history is all about colonialism and i would argue even the metropolitan museum of art, all art museums, so we've got to have a conversation and an
agreement that we are ourselves personally and as a nation the good and the bad and not allow marxist to erase our history which ends up dividing all of us. steve: tammy this movement started with the death of george floyd, but now, as we have progressed over a month, has the fact and i'm just curious your point of view on this , has the fact that it is an election year changed any of the dynamics >> well obviously, yes. there's a meme that's online one from the babylon bee that democrats announced that black lives will matter in the next four years that that'll end at the election and that it'll come back. we're talking about your previous segment about people moving out into the suburbs. well you know, only the middle class and the upper classes can do that. the people, a lot of people are stuck in the inner city. people who are poor, people who are right on the edge, whose got really the luxury of thinking about buying or selling your
home. what we're dealing within the inner city in these democrat cities is it has not gotten better over generations. it has gotten worse. it's getting worse now, and so our solutions can't be about this , yes, massive divide and attack during an election year, and the same politicians that abandoned these issues. donald trump is the first president to really do things regarding justice reform, and moving through and recognizing that the urban areas and the inner city also deserve representation, so that's the conversation and in the meantime when you think about black lives mattering as a concept versus the group, which is political and marxist is that last night at lafayette park you had and these are white liberals , attacking the police, screaming at african americans police officers that is what this means. it is now no longer about george floyd and all of this should be. steve: talking ability the news today, tammy, thank you very
much for joining us. >> thank you, steve. steve: check out her show on fox nation. meanwhile, president trump says john bolton should go to jail for publishing classified information in his book that comes out today. former white house press secretary sarah sanders says bolton was "drunk on power." you'll hear it from her, with an explanation, next. i thought i had my moderate to severe ulcerative colitis... ...under control. turns out, it was controlling me. seemed like my symptoms were... ...taking over our time together. think he'll make it? so i talked to my doctor and learned humira can help get and keep uc... ... under control when other medications haven't worked well enough.

and then he published it, during it's one thing to write a book after, but during, and i believe that he's a criminal. ainsley: in her upcoming book our next guest calls out john bolton as a man "drunk on power ." steve: here to explain fox news contributor and former white house press secretary she knows john bolton pretty well, sarah sanders. hey, sarah good morning, can you hear me? sarah can you hear us? i think the answer is "no." brian: i think so too or she be giving me the cold shoulder it's not like her though. ainsley: brian you went down to washington yesterday and you talked to the president he gave you a whole tour of the white house that special will air on sunday. what did he say in addition to what we just played about this? brian: well he's furious, because he said that he basically was the counter that he liked him one way when bolton would walk him with him to a room because he had a
reputation of somebody that's very aggressive and it's like hey, listen, you want to deal with me, this guy has his way, the war would start tomorrow, and he kind of liked that but he had trouble getting along with other people. the one thing that sarah sanders put in her book -- steve: we'll have her here in just a minute. brian: here is mick mulvaney with this is she chronicles an interaction between her and mick mulvaney whose famously known as pretty equal balanced. he never got upset. he wasn't territorial as chief of staff. mick mulvaney saw they have this story in sarah's book that john bolton got into his own car and got to an event without communicating with anyone. m ic m to john bolton here is the quote. let's face it, john. you're a blank self-righteous self-centered son of a b and he goes on from there, and she wanted to chronicle that, because she wanted to say that
there was not only tensions with the president, there was tensions amongst the staff with john bolton. steve: we hope to have sarah established via audio here in just a moment but we could talk a little bit about the john bolton book which is officially being released today. usually you find out what's in a book the day it's published but there have been so many leaks so many interviews about it as well now, we understand sarah sanders can actually hear us. congratulations. hey sarah. >> [laughter] good morning sorry about that. steve: it's okay because we have been all operating remotely. there are problems with it and challenges so tell us about the job you know is a john bolton we don't know. who is he? >> look right now i think he's a disgrace to the country. i think what he's doing right now is absolutely appalling and i write about in my book " speaking for myself" john bolton was your classic case of someone who was completely"drunk
on power" who thought he was the president. he was constantly pushing his own agenda, which was all he cared about. the big problem for john bolton is that's not how it works. he forgot that no one elected him to anything and that it was president trump and president trump's agenda that mattered within the white house. ainsley: sarah some of the comments that he said that says he's not worthy of the position and that the president makes decisions on a whim. what's your reaction, is that true? >> if anybody is unworthy of a position it is somebody who takes an opportunity given to them like john bolton does and runs out the second he gets released from that job, and starts to change his tune. he was either lying when he was in the room where it happened or he's lying now and i think john bolton has absolutely zero credibility since for 17 months he went out and championed president trump and his agenda saying all of the things he was
doing, how he had been tough on a variety of countries and now all of a sudden that he is a disgruntled former employee, his entire tune changes. it just doesn't work like that john and i don't think he has any credibility at this point. let's not forget, no one was tougher on china, iran, russia, north korea than president trump far moreso than obama or biden and john bolton knows that and it's an in disputable fact because everybody else knows it too and unfortunately, he doesn't get to rewrite history and change the story now. brian: sarah are you surprised that john kelly, general mattis and now john bolton are all critical of the president being that you were behind the scenes, we were not? >> look, one of the things that i hope people will see in my book that comes out in september is a side of president trump who loves this country, who woke up every day looking for ways he could make it better, and it is at his heart and core actually a very generous caring person. i tell a lot of behind the scene
s moments where you see that come through and i think that that's the side of the america that i hope people will take away. i spent more time with the president than bolton, kelly or mattis, and i hope that people will see that when my book comes out in september. steve: we'll be looking for that but ultimately, you know, we've heard so many contrary things from some of these people who had been posted close to the president, if you were the president, you'd think can i really trust this person? can i really open myself up and ask for a point of view? he's going to wind up writing a book too. >> [laughter] i bet he does, and i think it'll be one for the ages when that happens after he finishes another four years as president. brian: sarah i think more about the other leaders. is this the national security advisor that i'm having a confidential conversation with the president of the united states? is this going to be the one that writes a book while i'm still in office? the president xi, kim jong-un,
vladimir putin? i'm sure there is all of this stuff doesn't want it going public even someone's version of what went public. real quick your thoughts on that >> absolutely and i think that's what john bolton is doing right now is such a disgrace to the country. he was a part of something very sensitive, classified and for him to betray not just the trust of the president but the entire country and those other world leaders, i think it's very damaging and i think it shows at his core who he is. brian: sarah sanders -- ainsley: also he's made the party upset because could divide the party in november or some people might not vote because of what he said. all right thanks so much, sarah great to see you. >> thank you. brian: meanwhile coming up straight ahead an amazing show of support nascar rallying around bubba wallace after aneuc e was found in his garage. jack brewer reacts to that powerful moment, next. businesses are starting to bounce back.

what bubba wallace was going through so this is really what america needs to see. this is the symbol of what america is, and how we can grab hold of our brothers and sisters of all races and come together. ainsley: you're right. jack what is your message to people out there that do this kind of thing? they need to have love in their hearts and don't they know that we are all god's children? >> that's right we're one blood you know, acts 17:26 says that we got to come together all nations but ainsley the most important thing is that our brothers and sisters of other skin pigmentations need to do exactly what nascar did. all the families out there across america, go and grab folks that look different than you and show that unity and show your communities that. show your families. ainsley: just like richard petty right there. >> that's right, amen. ainsley: he went up behind him and hugged him when he got
emotional. i'm sure he's been through so much i've heard an interview with his mom and she said you don't know what my son's been through driving nascar so we all need to stand behind him and love one another. it's time it is time. jack thank you so much god bless you. >> good bless you, ainsley love you all. ainsley: we love you too. more fox & friends moments away. y asthma attacks i've had. i've been on and off oral steroids to manage my asthma. does that sound normal to you? it's time for a nunormal with nucala. my nunormal: fewer asthma attacks. my nunormal: less oral steroids. nucala is a once-monthly add-on injection for severe eosinophilic asthma. it targets and reduces eosinophils, a key cause of severe asthma. nucala is proven to help prevent severe asthma attacks and reduce the need for oral steroids. nucala is not for sudden breathing problems. allergic reactions can occur. get help right away if you have swelling of your face, mouth, tongue, or trouble breathing. infections that can cause shingles have occurred. don't stop your corticosteroid medications
