♪ rob: live look at midtown manhattan, you are watching "fox and friends" first on thursday morning. heather: another busy one on tap. a brand-new threat from iran, the nuclear deal begins to unravel. donald trump has not announced whether the us will the agreement. rob: the president will focus on escalating tension and the mess with north korea as it meets with leaders of japan and south korea. heather: the latest developments from dc. >> reporter: donald trump has
been a longtime critic of the iran nuclear deal and he went after iran at the un general assembly tuesday saying he believed the nation is pursuing a nuclear weapon. that prompted reporters to ask if the us will withdraw from the nuclear deal and the president played it cool. >> i will let you know. >> reporter: rex to listen met with a proponent of the nuclear deal, iran may be meeting its obligations but violated the spirit of the agreement. donald trump had harsh words for north korea in the un speech, the leaders of south korea and japan call on other world leaders for tougher action against kim jung un's government. >> china and russia supported
this resolution. we have to have their cooperation. whether that is implemented or not, this has to be implemented to make north korea take this policy. now is the time for pressure. >> north korea's foreign minister weighed in on donald trump's speech yesterday saying donald trump sounded like a barking dog. we will hear more from him about that during his speech at the un tomorrow. >> interesting response. the left continuing to hammer donald trump for his hard stance and that speech talking about a nuclear north korea. >> charles hurt says liberals should ask why former president obama let it get this far to begin with. >> i have a hard time understanding why advising north
korea, advising rocket man, attack one of our neighbors, attack the united states you will be annihilated. that your message is very important. listening to democrats talk about all these things trump didn't address or didn't address properly, all these problems were given to us by barack obama and whether russia run amok or nuclear north korea or isis on the march or the mayhem in syria and iran all of this was bequeathed to us by his predecessor sell try something different is a smart idea. >> now to this fox news alert, rescuers in mexico city working around the clock to save a 12-year-old little girl trapped underneath that school that was destroyed by the earthquake. rob: crews unable to pull her out but they have gotten her water and oxygen. 11 other children already have
been rescued from the rubble. [speaking spanish] rob: just incredible. the 7.1 quake leaving 21 little kids and four adults at that school dead. >> 240 people total have died across the city but some officials say that number could reach 1000. rob: another major disaster, puerto rico waking up in total darkness this morning after taking a direct that from hurricane maria. the entire island now without power. authorities are warning it may not be returned or turned back on to everybody, it could take months to get that to happen. on top of that two feet of rain falling in parts of the country turning streets into raging rivers, official saying, quote, the island is destroyed.
>> donald trump saying to we are with you and the people of puerto rico, stay safe. 3.5 million people in the dark, no power. >> it will take a long time to get that power back on. >> i we done with? >> maria or the season? the season lasts until november 30th unfortunately and we could have more storms on the way but for now we are watching maria. incredible wind gusts in excess of 130 mph across puerto rico and the virgin islands. an incredible storm, still packing winds of 150 mph, went over mountainous terrain in puerto rico, disrupted the storm, weakened it but still has warm water ahead of it so we think it has potential to strengthen a little bit but we are hoping it goes east of the turks and caicos, east of the bahamas and east of the us.
fingers are crossed. the latest advisory, hoping everything is okay. the turks and caicos and the bahamas, looks like we are still going to have to monitor this but looks like this will miss the us next week so we will continue to follow it and bring the latest from puerto rico as well. >> they need a break. rob: donald trump throwing his support behind last-ditch effort to repeal and replace obamacare, calling a republican holdout senator rand paul. >> rand paul is a friend of mine but such a negative force when it comes to fixing healthcare, the graham cassidy bill is great. the new bill aims to shift more power and funding away from washington and back to the states. >> president obama breaking his silence about the gop attempt to undo his signature health law. >> when i see people trying to undo that hard one progress for the 5460 is time it is aggravating, frustrating to have
to mobilize every couple months to keep our leaders from inflicting human suffering on our constituents. >> the senate is set to vote on the bill next week. they are up against a deadline. what are the chances it will pass? what is in the new bill? >> here to break it down for us the chair of the program in business and finance at kings college in manhattan, thanks for coming on this morning. the question is what changeds, one analyst said at the end of the day we will still have socialized healthcare, obamacare wins the war, we are just trying to figure out how to implement it in a way that seems more conservative? >> the money stays the same, money from --
>> 90% of it. >> the difference is the decision how to spend the money will happen at the state level, not the federal level and that could create some big differences depending what state you are talking about. if you are talking about a red state like texas you could see big reforms, dropping coverage mandates under obamacare, changing medicaid, more market oriented direction. a place like new york or california you could see the opposite, more toward a single-payer system. you could get a lot of diversity around care if this bill passes. >> rand paul has come out and said he will not vote for this at this point, if they decide to bring this up next week, his argument, when voting for the skinny obamacare bill he did vote for that. the difference being this takes block money and gives it to the different states but some get different amounts than others. >> not quite clear why rand paul is opposing this bill versus the when he voted for.
he has some explaining to do. this isn't a repeal of obamacare, just a repackaging and repurpose thing. that is a big deal, that is federalism but not a complete repeal. if it is the standard he is right. >> this bill existed before. they discussed this before. >> it has been around the better part of a year, took a backseat when we had the other appeal plan on the table. it is back at the last minute. >> let's show you the governor's against this bill, at the top is a big critic, john kasich of ohio, at the top of the list. a couple other swing state governors as well. a number of people against this bill but a number of people on this bill as well. at the end of the day the question is does it get through? >> when talking about the decision of one or two senators it could change in a heartbeat.
look at the most governors who oppose this. >> did not expand medicare. depends how much money they get this time. >> money gets shifted here but this is a big deal. governors had two years to figure out how to do healthcare, that is a heavylift. the federal government says you solved this problem because we can't do it. >> previous issues. >> on the bill. >> i don't think it is as bad as critics are saying, the bill requires states to have affordable options for people with preexisting conditions but there is more flexibility so things are going to change. >> who determined that? >> governors, state legislatures that will try to make it appeal if they want to bend preexisting conditions depending where you live things could change a lot or a little. >> we could talk about this another 20 minutes.
thank you so much. >> the time is 10 minutes after the top of the hour. finally a victory for our veterans, how the trump administration just a game at the va to help our heroes get closer to the healthcare they deserve. >> the apple watch you just cost of $400 for for might be bad. the crucial defect apple just admitted to. we will talk about that. >> that is school spirit, the officer going viral for all the right reasons. ♪ you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad. then liberty mutual calls... and you break into your happy dance. if you sign up for better car replacement™,

his 105 mile-per-hour foul ball, the speed it came off the bat at hit a toddler in the face. >> players demanding more protection for their fans. and how the little girl is doing. >> a lot of people talking about this, great news for you, we have learned the 2-year-old girl is out of the hospital after taking a direct hit. the nightmare scenario unfolding behind third base where she was enjoying the game with her grandparents. >> little too graphic for us to show you and that says it all as far as fraser. >> every player in left field visibly shaken, moved to tears

made me think of the blueberry girl from willy wonka commenting on her oversized dress. caroline said in an attempt to have anything in common with her husband, melania has gained 190 pounds and use orange makeup. other people used her speech to make fun of the president and accuse him of bullying himself. you call out trump for supposedly in yet you resort to bullying tactics against the first lady. do unto others mean anything to your? you know what? i want to know what you think of this. actress melissa joan hart facing backlash for complaining hurricane maria ruined her vacation. she took to instagram with an alert on the hurricane and under that alert she said just like that our family vacation is

credit if they can determine their own white privilege. a sociology teacher at san diego state university asking students to check examples how they benefit from their white skin color. >> when example being i can choose bandages in flesh color and have more or less match my skin. here to react, the president of the university, campus reform correspondent brendan jones. thank you for joining us. the professor in question says she wants her students to see things from a different perspective. do you think this allows them to do that? >> no. i don't think this allows them to see a different perspective. i think she missed the mark here. we see this all the time and report on it, especially college republican that san diego state. she is dividing students and creating an us versus them
mentality. rob: have you gotten complaints from students? i can't imagine being in a position like that where your method is to feel guilty for who you are which is what she is asking you to do, to blame your self. >> students on campus are not tolerating it. college republicans are not going to tolerate it and we have seen this time and again. you have covered the new black lives matter course at san diego state, very divisive and a trend we are seeing on college campuses, another example of the indoctrination we are seeing. heather: the three of us are sitting here, have you heard anything from people with skin of a different color? what do they say? >> i haven't heard anything directly. i know people in our club are very mad about this and the
country is taking -- it is a critical time in our country and we need to focus on mending racial tensions created by the last administration and we need to mend that divide and come back together. it is almost laughable at this point. rob: you breathe that divisiveness, let's look at examples from the quiz. some of the answers students gave. the first one, the bandages, i could be late to a meeting without having the lateness reflect on my race is another one. i'm not made acutely aware of my shape, bearing or body odor is taken as a reflection of my race. i can enroll at a class and be sure a majority of my professors will be of my race. seems they are pushing a logic here is that gives you an unfair advantage and you should feel
guilty if your skin happens to be white. do you agree with that? >> very clear to me when i went to college i was expecting a marketplace of ideas. it didn't mean i would agree with those ideas but a place in the space for students to just have dialogue about politics, social issues and what i have seen is an assembly line of left-wing indoctrination and sheep of students i attend classes with just absolutely sheep and take what these professors say when they are standing on a soapbox, take it, i wish they would take it a little less seriously but it is not happening and they are going to be the professors of tomorrow. heather: students of african-american descent, asian descent who think this is not a good idea, not the best way to go about teaching, yesterday i saw this and the first question, the blemish color bandages i hadn't thought about it until
yesterday. there aren't any bandages you see for specifically african colored skin but they do have the clear ones. it does make you think. perhaps not the best forum to do it in. >> people of all races, just a lot of nonsense. thank you so much, appreciate you coming on this morning. heather: a lot of talk about free speech from people on both sides of the debate. rob: is this debate heats up, college campuses trying to shun free speech and not let people talk and others allowed to speak, 37% of americans cannot name one first amendment right. heather: 26% can't name a single branch of government. pretty shocking. rob: i went out to ask

and petition of grievances. we brought this up because we were talking about the constitution and people not being aware what their rights are. >> people are smarter than we think, when you shove a camera in people's face, everyone does this and ask a question, your mind goes blank. you put people in the right situation and give them a second most people are smarter and they get credit for. >> us every day. >> we have it in our face every day. 55 minutes after the hour, dictators don't pay parking tickets. how much kim jung un owes new york city. five days total. we lost a lot of food. we actually filed a claim with usaa to replace that spoiled food. and we really appreciated that we're the webber family and we are usaa members for life. the strikingly designed lexus nx turbo and hybrid. .
