6:04 am
support of the president. could push them into it, what we >> on capitol hill tomorrow, the know from our jobs report is that our economy right now is house is set to set up a special pretty solid. which means wearing a pretty center to prepare infrastructure good position to absorb whatever for possible telework as shock we get from us. capitol hill becomes the latest front in the fight. chris. >> chris: kevin corke reporting for mar-a-lago, kevin, thanks. we will have more in the as you talk about all the conferences that are being coronavirus later in the canceled, and we hear about airlines which are cutting program, but first, back to flights by dramatic amounts, this is going to filter into the politics. joining us from the campaign economy, as we head into march trail in michigan, democratic and april. presidential candidate and again, he will have to find a senator, bernie sanders, senator, since super tuesday, way to reassure people, and not overpromise in terms of how you've been going after quickly we are going to get past joe biden pretty hard on a this. i think he needs to let the number of issues. take a look. health professionals do their >> bernie: of one of us in job and not be out there this race led the opposition to contradicting or second-guessing them. >> chris: congresswoman, had words, obviously we have no idea the war in iraq, one of us led where this is going to be in the the opposition to disastrous fall, amy the president's right, and like the flu, as we get into trade agreements, one of us has warmer weather, it will begin to diminish, maybe not. spent his entire life fighting how legitimate do you think it is for democrats to go after the against cuts in social security. >> chris: senator, now that this is a two man race, and president on the administration you're going to have a two-man
6:05 am
response to the coronavirus? >> donna: well, i think it's debate sunday, how hard do you go after joe biden without legitimate to challenge the process and the of carving each other up and helping donald trump win this cri whenever weut what to , reelection? >> bernie: well, chris, that's the right question. biden is a friend of mine, joe biden is a decent guy, what joe has said is that if i win and what americans can do, that the nomination he will be there for me, i have said if he won the nomination, i will be there it actually is a somewhat for him. reassuring. but we don't get is that kind of because we both recognize that reassurance coming directly from we have a president who is a the president, because of his pathological liar, and i say that without any joy in my hea know, the information that he puts out is just on accurate. he would actually, i think, do heart. better in terms of the public if he just shut up. because i don't think people wouldn't necessarily blame the president for something that was out of his control, but if he continues in his administration somebody who is running a corrupt administration, and it somebody who is apparently never read the constitution of the mismanages the crisis, then i united states and think these think it's a legitimate point of above the law. biden and i, no matter who wins this thing will be competing, but now that it is a two-way race, it is important for the challenge by anyone who wants to voters of this country to ask be president saying i would themselves two questions. number one, which candidate is manage a better, i mean, we saw stronger in terms of being able to defeat trump. and number two, what are the
6:06 am
differences in our record. joe has been in washington for a the impact, for example, that long time as have i. my point is, when people see the records, joe voted for the war hurricane katrina, and the response had with president in iraq, i oppose the war in president bush. iraq. joe voted for the wall street i don't think this is different in that respect.od when he makes bailou wall street bailout. when you go to the midwest, we are in michigan right now, you go to wisconsin, pennsylvania, people want to know about your assertions that are completely views on trade, because contrary to the scientific disastrous trade agreements like evidence. nafta and pmp are with china >> chris: ben, the president literally tweeted this morning, cost this country over 4 million primarily to this conversation good paying jobs, decimated that the administration is doing a great job and it's a fake news media that is running him down. communities here in michigan. i hope to leave the opposition >> ben: i think we can believe to those trade agreements, joe a couple of different things are voted for them. >> chris: senator, joe biden true here. one is, the panic is overblown, is also going after you, here he this is not the kind of public health crisis, yet, that people is on who is better able to help are treating it in the way they are approaching it in some working americans. take a look. sections of the media. >> now, let's go to michigan, however, it's very serious. bernie, and see if that's true. it should result in changes in i'm the guy that helped bailout human behavior for the time the outer mobile industry, what being, as we figure out how we adjust to live our lives this did you do, old buddy? come on. way. just to note a personal thing >> chris: he says you've got big plans, he gets results. here, a former guest on fox news >> bernie: well, i think in quite a lot, passed away a little over a year ago, one of terms of results,ort the disastn our employees, from the flu, so
6:07 am
iraq, when you support the the flu is very serious, we have wall street bailout, when you a very high level of flu and america right now. so people should take this seriously, but don't freak out. support terrible trade agreements -- >> chris: how about the auto don't panic, don't into a bailout, sir? >> bernie: mall, the auto bailout was done by the obama black friday mob at the costco administration, and it was a when you're trying to prepare step forward, but i think, for this. sometimes joe was taking a little bit of credit, as >> chris: and quoting the congresswoman, that the vice president, for initiatives president, i will be gentler, that were led by should be quiet? president obama, and by many >> ben: i think the president, members of the congress. as i said, should stick to the >> chris: let's take a look at talking points he's given. he's not the practical politics, here, the big prize on tuesday, or the there are a lot of serious people working on this, he biggest prizes michigan with 125 should stick to those points and not go off script the way he delegates, you scored a major does. upset when they are in 2016 before i think it hurts them politically, you can see there's a public because they pullout, against hillary clinton, but on super tuesday, you lost to 51% of americans at the moment biden, among what many people disapprove of the way he's would think would be her base, handling this, but i agree with councilwoman edwards, if he white working-class voters, in a said nothing, people wouldn't number of states, and biden blame him. taunted you bernie, you >> jason: but people look to the present for leadership on this, he has to watch what he says but i don't think you got beaten by overwhelming
6:08 am
should stop talking. >> donna: i think he's incapable of doing that, so i support, african-americans, think you should really defer to bernie, you had beaten because the people in his of suburban women, bernie. administration. >> chris: if you were to lose who have the capacity to make the american public comfortable in the first industrial midwest estate to vote, michigan, on and where we need to be. >> chris: all right, thank you panel, see you next sunday, my tuesday, how serious is that, guess is, unfortunately, we will how damaging, would you consider still be talking about this, up dropping out? >> bernie: well, no, i next, our "power player of the week," the girl scout who became certainly would not consider a rocket scientist and is now dropping out. you know, chris, media asks you, leading the organization into the future is this state or that state life or death. dad, i'm scared. i was asked that in iowa, ♪ new hampshire, we won california. at the large estate in this it's only human to care for those we love. country, we are winning among latino voters big time. and also help light their way. we are winning among young people. it's why last year chevron invested over $10 billion you know, when you talk about the future of this country or the future of the democratic to bring affordable, reliable, ever cleaner energy to america. party, we might want to look where young people are at, and what young people are saying is ♪ that we have got to move aggressively to make sure that health care is a right for all, young people want to rage minimum-wage to at least $15 an

6:15 am
old-fashioned, not like donald trump. i don't think putin is a nice guy, i don't think kim jong un of north korea is a nice guy, i speak up for democracy all over the world, whether it is in cuba, whether it is in saudi arabia, whether it is in russia, wherever it is. >> chris: finally, there was a fascinating profile of you in "the new york times," i don't know if he had a chance to read it yesterday, it said that when you are in hotels, you want a room which is far away from the ice machines in the elevators, which i have to tell you, i good morning. passengers on the grand think it's perfectly sensible. it also said that you want your princess are frustrated with little answers about when they will get off that ship. room to be at 60 degrees, and it will dock tomorrow but the the question i have, sir, is when you are on the road, do you embankment process will take days. more than a dozen new cases hang meat in your room? >> bernie: [laughs] have been reported as officials are recommending people stayed i'll tell you, maybe it's having lived in vermont for the last 50 home for the next couple of years, i just don't sleep well weeks. from ktvu fox 2 news this when the room gets very, very is 'mornings on 2'. warm. my poor wife has been having to

deal with that for decades now, >> good morning. it is sunday. sometimes, in hotels, in the it is not monday. night they turn off the air i am here for claudine. conditioning a gets pretty hot and i don't sleep, and we are on the road a whole lot. but i do like, have to contest, i'm pam cook. >> i'm frank mallicoat. we had tock. i do like cold rooms. >> chris: in 15 seconds, it also said that you like to watch old boxing matches on tv, who is we actually went forward. your favorite fighter, sir? >> bernie: i would go with muhammad ali who is not only a great fighter, one of the great heavyweight champ's of time, but the next ordinary human being and probably the most loved athlete of his time. >> chris: you think you could have beaten joe lewis? >> bernie: yes, i do. >> chris: senator sanders, thank you, incidentally, joe lewis was from michigan, you're going to be in trouble on that one. >> bernie: by the way, i know, i just met, and terms o was the mayor of jackson, mississippi, is campaigning for man michigans
6:17 am
family is related directly to joe lewis whose real name is joe barrows, the barrels family of michigan. >> chris: you've got some political repair work to do this afternoon, senator, thank you, thanks for your time on this busy weekend, safe travels on the campaign trail, sir. >> bernie: thank you very much, chris. >> chris: went up next, we will bring in our sunday group to discuss what is at stake tuesday. plus, president trump's new chief of staff. nt income is complicated. as your broker, i've solved it. that's great, carl. but we need something better. that's easily adjustable has no penalties or advisory fee. and we can monitor to see that we're on track. like schwab intelligent income. schwab! introducing schwab intelligent income. a simple, modern way to pay yourself from your portfolio. oh, that's cool... i mean, we don't have that. schwab.
6:18 am
a modern approach to wealth management. the one thing you learn pretty quickly, is that there's a lot to learn. grow with google is here to help you with turning ideas into action. putting your business on the map, connecting with customers, and getting the skills to use new tools. so, in case you're looking, we've put all the ways we can help in one place. free training, tools, and small business resources are now available at are critical skills for scientists at 3m. one of the products i helped develop was a softer, more secure diaper closure. as a mom, i knew it had to work. there were babies involved... and they weren't saying much. i envisioned what it's like for babies to have diapers around them. that's what we do at 3m, we listen to people, even those who don't have a voice. at the end of the day, we are people helping people.
6:19 am
[ "turn around, look at me"al♪ don't have a voice. ♪ turn around ♪ look at me ♪ there is someone
6:20 am
>> we are very much alive! and make no mistake about it, this campaign will send it donald trump packing. this campaign is taking off, join us. >> chris: well, what a difference a week makes, reenergized it joe biden, as the results from super tuesday put him back in the lead for the democratic nomination. and it is time, now, for our sunday group, cofounder of the federalist, ben domenech, fox news political analyst, juan williams, former democratic congresswoman, donna edwards, and jason riley of "the wall street journal." while, congresswoman, where is the democratic race now, how solid is biden's position as the front runner, and is it possible for bernie sanders to flip the script one more time? >> donna: well look, coming out of super tuesday, biden could not have had a better night, he swept a ton of 14 states, he is in a very solid
6:21 am
position, looks like he is pulling together the democratic coalition it's going to be needed to beat donald trump in november, but i think, it is still a race to the finish, and it is possible that there could be some catch up, but biden is in a very solid, strong position going into the coming tuesday races. >> chris: and we should point out, that just this morning, kamala harris, the senator from california, former presidential candidate has now endorsed joe biden. jason, we've been down this road before, last summer, biden was unbeatable, than warren was in the lead, if we had talked a week ago, certainly ten days ago, we would've been saying that, can anybody stop bernie sanders coming out show biden. so, juan, how do you see the race, and you think there's a possibility were going to see some more twists and turns? before we could, i think biden's lead is real, but i don't think he can get too comfortable. i think he is benefited from a couple things, one is that democrats, i think, took a lesson from what happened to
6:22 am
republicans in 2016, and you saw pete buttigieg and amy klobuchar, and even beto o'rourke down a texas turnaround and indoors an alternative, they got out of the race, and they endorsed biden, and that is something that republicans, of course, did not do back in 2016, when it came to endorsing an alternative to donald trump. i also think that biden has benefited from bernie sanders underperforming this cycle, to the extent that he did four years ago. yes, he is doing better with young voters, but they are a smaller percentage of the voting public right now than they were four years ago. we talk about how trump benefited from and say clinton senate stomach sentiment four years ago, but so did clinton in the primary. there was a lot of sentiment going on last time. bernie benefited from that, that's out there this time, you saying he will suffer because of that. >> chris: there's another big
6:23 am
political story want to get too, that is that friday night, president trump announced, there you see them on the screen, he is replacing mick mulvaney as white house chief of staff with his fourth chief of staff, and a little over three years, congressman mark meadows of north carolina, ben, why the switch, and what you think it says about the president's strategy as he prepares, in earnest, to go into the 2020 election campaign? >> ben: the president had reportedly soured on mick mulvaney as his chief of staff months ago. this is something that he wanted to do much earlier, but the impeachment process, as it was playing out, really didn't allow him to do that. now we get someone who is really kind of a story of the republican party, in terms of mark meadows, someone who is the founder of the freedom caucus, a very ideological conservative, someone who, even reportedly was reluctant to go to the convention in 2016, because he didn't know if he wanted to be there supporting donald trump. now he is someone who is as loyal as you can be and was a
6:24 am
fierce advocate for him on this network and others during the impeachment process, meadows is someone who, i think, is just a signal to conservatives that trump knows who he is close to, he's going to stick by them, and he's going to make that case to his republican base going forward, in what he views to be of a selection where he has a lot of things that he can say and advocate for four reasons as to why he should return. group of donors on friday night that mark meadows is going to be his jim baker, the very well-regarded first chief of staff to ronald reagan, you and i both covered the reagan white house, do you think this president really wants a geo baker? >> juan: it now. first of all, jim baker was respected across the political consensus builder, and someone who is a student of government mr. neary in terms of the way government works. he had a deep appreciation of
6:25 am
the government's ability to serve the american people. mark meadows is known as of fire were, what you just heard, he's the fire of the freedom caucus, but he's also a guy who has mocked up government operations, the shutdown, that was freedom caucus, that was mark meadows, he has a distaste for how government actually operates, he things government is a problem, and has gone after bureaucrats and government workers. so it's the exact opposite. i think it's a base plate, i think it says to people who are strong trump partisans, we have got our guy right next to the president, and i think there was fading confidence in mick mulvaney, especially after that press conference, when he talked about quid pro quo, and the like, but secondly, i think there was a low density was in charge. now, the president is now after impeachment, calling in and pushing at people who he things aren't disloyal, but calling in terms of oils, is
6:26 am
making a play right now to consolidate before the election. >> chris: jason, your thoughts on the meadows appointment, and the continued people in this white house. >> jason: am actually reluctant to read too much into the meadows appointment. i think that you know, the chief of staff traditionally has been a manager, or a gatekeeper to the oval office. i don't think trump quite views is in that role, i think he sees the chief of staff is another aid, and he's looking for someone who's going to be a fighter for him, particularly in the media and be loyal to him. i think mark meadows checks both of those boxes, he will do fine. >> chris: congresswoman? >> donna: i agree. i do think that the choice of meadows is actually a signal to people that there could be coming out as a spokesperson, a little bit more disciplined, i think than mulvaney had, thereby, to the president, but changing another chief of staff, frankly, is not going to make a difference for this president. the president really is his own chief of staff, and mark meadows

may be a fill in, but this is really about donald trump. >> chris: lets okie actually makes it to the election, he's not a fill-in to that sort of time. when we come back, the spread of the coronavirus across the world, and here in the u.s., we will discuss the response with dr. anthony fauci, the nation's top expert on infectious disea disease. ♪ i want to rock!

>> chris: as americans embrace for the medical and economic impacts of the coronavirus, u.s. officials are trying to encourage preparedness without setting off a panic. joining us now, dr. anthony fauci, director of the national institute of allergy and infectious diseases, doctor, we'll come back to "fox news sunday." what's the latest on the threat of the coronavirus across the country and the number of deaths here? the >> dr. fauci: were obvious they having an acceleration of cases now, if you look every day, we have somewhere around 350, probably going to be close to 400 if it is an eyes and already there. we have at least 18 deaths, they keep coming on every day that goes by. what we are seeing is what is called community spread in certain regions of the country, particularly in the area of washington state, seattle. >> chris: so italy just announced that it is going to lock down an entire region of
6:32 am
more than italy that includes milan and venice with a quarter of the population, millions of people, no one is going to be allowed except under extra ordinary circumstances to go in or to go out. that happened here? >> dr. fauci: you know, we have to be realistic. i don't think it would be esther kony and as nobody in a nobody out. but there will be, ifcontinue t, particularly at the community level, there will be mitigation where we have to do essentially social distancing, keep people out of crowded places, take a look at seriousness, do you really need to travel? those kind of things. i think it's particularly important among the most raw marble. that's the thing that the cdc and the state department are going to be making some recommendations about how people who have underlying conditions, those are the most vulnerable, particularly elderly with underlying conditions. heart disease, chronic lung disease, diabetes, right now, not weight, but right now to
6:33 am
sort of take a look at things that are at high risk. crowded places, getting on airplanes, and absolutely, don't get on a cruise ship. >> chris: i'm going to press this question, though, of ada lee, could you see a situation, you know, a lot of talk about seattle, and what's going on taly, untiltate, or region is april 3rd, nobody in a ns possi. what you need to do on real-time basis, and that's the reason we evaluated every single day. you don't want to alarm people, but given the spread we see, anything is possible. that's the reason why, we've got to be prepared to take whatever action is appropriate to contain and mitigate the outbreak. >> chris: okay, meanwhile, the cruise ship, the grand princess, the latest call is that it has 3500 people on it, that it's going to dog, perhaps as early as tomorrow at a nonoccupied
6:34 am
dock in san francisco bay, people are then going to be taken off the ship, they're going to be sent to quarantines, california people, the others to a base in georgia, would you prefer that would you prefer to see people stand that ship? >> dr. fauci: , i recommend we see people get off, we don't only see you at the diamond princess where the ship became almost a hot spot of transition. i want to see them getting off, and be a part of the appropriate quarantine and/or care for those were sick. >> chris: there has been some confusion about the response in this country to the disease. first of all, when a vaccine will become available, take a look. >> president trump: i've heard varying numbers, matter of months, and i've heard pretty much a year would be an outside number. >> reporter: what is it going to be deployable? that's going to be at the earliest a year-a year and a
6:35 am
half as fast as you go. >> chris: realistic, what's the earliest vaccine would be available for americans to take? >> dr. fauci: people need to appreciate the difference between a vaccine that you've proven marks, that's going to take between a year and a year and a half. when you can get it scaled up, that the reason we've met with the pharmaceutical countries, because once you shot works, then he got to scale it up to hundreds of millions of doses. we're talking at least a year to year and a half, at least, at best. >> chris: you sound like you think it's longer than that. >> dr. fauci: chris, the test were doing right now, getting it to phase one trial is the fastest we've ever done. don't confuse that with when you can put it in someone's arm and a deployable way. so i think that we really need to realize that, for now, the answer is not going to be a vaccine, if, in fact, we go into a cycle, where we come back next year, then we likely would have some opportunity for a vaccine. >> chris: there have also been
6:36 am
contradictions about when and how many people can get tested. take a look at that. >> president trump: anybody that needs a test get the test, they are there, they have the test. the tests are beautiful. anybody that needs a test get the test. >> we don't have enough tests, today, to meet what we anticipate will be the demand going forward. >> chris: can anybody who needs a test get a test now? >> dr. fauci: the fact is, the tests are outtep early on with o the tests, a technical difficulty, but right now, about 1.1 million tests are out there, now. they will be an additional come about 640,000, on that same monday, then at least another 4 million, particularly, now that we are engaging the private sector. now, when you say that, they are out there, if you go to a doctor, it is up to the doctor to order the test, and if that happens, a person should have a
6:37 am
test available. but it's no doubt, chris, you have to be realistic, early on, there are some missteps that delayed it. >> chris: i want to pick up on that, doctor, and the question of testing, i want to put some numbers on the screen, as of thursday, the cdc had tested only 1583 people in california, only 516 tests. meanwhile, in south korea, more than 66,000 people were tested within a week of the first case of community transmission, and of a canal tested 10,000 people a day, why are we so far behind? >> dr. fauci: it gets back to what i said in the beginning, that the cdc made a test, there is a technical glitch there, the cdc provides test for the public health groups in the state and local. what we really need to do, now, which were the numbers that i mentioned to you, is to get the private sector involved, so that you could literally flooded with millions and millions of tests. that is happening now, but in fact, the american people need
6:38 am
to realize, that in the beginning, there was a glitch, and we need to overcome that, now. >> chris: you spoke with politico recently, and i want to put a part of what you had to say. you said, "you should never destroy your own credibility, and you don't want to go to war with the president, but you've got to walk the fine balance of making sure you continue to tell the truth." you have had to correct the president a few times, especially on the availability and the schedule for vaccines, where do you personally draw the line between reassuring people, but staying away from the spin? >> dr. fauci: i dries best as possible, i think i succeed over many years, of staying away from spin, and just give people the information that you need based on evidence and hard facts. when you have the evidence, you give it as it is. if you don't have all the evidence, because we are in a ur best judgment and recommendations and guidelines,
6:39 am
but you must always, always be truthful with the american public. >> chris: there is a story today on ap that the white house overruled the cdc, which wanted to warn elderly people, and people and it physically fragile conditions not to get on commercial airplanes. one, do you know whether that's not, and two, what would you tell a relative of yours who was in either that class elderly or physically fragile, would you say staff airplanes? >> dr. fauci: here's the deal, i can tell you right away, chris, that nobody overruled anybody about saying this. let me say it loud and clear now. the cdc has a health alert and the state department has right now, i'm telling the american people, the task force, that if you are an individually an elderly persn with an underlying condition, right now, not
6:40 am
yourself from the risk, crowds, getting on a plane, a long plane trip, above all, don't get on a cruise ship. that is a health issue. with the state department is saying from a logistic standpoint, don't get on a cruise ship, because you can come out, has a have a person on there that all of a sudden, you find yourself not be able to get back in quarantine, no one has d us not to say that, and i'm saying it very clearly now on your show. >> chris: finally, i have noticed, you've been all over television the last few days, you have a bit of a raspy voice. have you tested yourself or had yourself tested for the coronavirus? >> dr. fauci: no, because i have not been at risk. my raspy voice is the fact that i'm talking too much on tv shows. >> chris: keep doing it, you are a voice of science and authority, when people hear you, they have reason to think they're getting the straight scoop. thank you very much. >> dr. fauci: thank you for
6:41 am
giving me the opportunity, chris. >> chris: always good to talk with you, sir. up next, we will bring back our sunday group to talk about the president's plan to contain the outbreak. plus, what would you like to ask the panel about how the spread of the virus could threaten the u.s. economy? just go to facebook or twitter and "fox news sunday," we may use your question on the air. i love him and i miss him very much. i miss you dad. i love you daddy. my daddy was a hero and i'm so proud of him.
6:42 am
when i told the girls that their daddy became an angel, it was extremely hard. because their daddy was no longer there to tuck them in at night. to be with them every day. there are over 1000 families that need our help, tunnel to towers honoring is those heroes that risked their lives by providing them with mortgage free homes. it means so much to me as a law enforcement officer who was affected by a tragic loss of my husband to know that if there is a loss in the future, the tunnel to towers will provide support for those families. they're not alone. i'd like to ask you to contribute eleven dollars a month to support their efforts. please visit
