thank you, i'm here. ainsley: we have got to get steve back. america is counting on him. you did a great job in austin. steve: such a powerful story. that's where we start morning. ainsley: let's begin with this fox news alert. of the confession of a maniac. we now know the austin bomber left behind a chilling video admitting to the deadly attacks. brian: 23. his name is mark conditt, revealing details about each and every one of the seven bombs. steve: todd piro is live in the palmer's home in pflugerville, texas, which was evacuated four blocks each way was yesterday. now people are back home. todd, what's the latest? >> >> steve, ainsley and brian, good morning to you. the street where we are on right now is one of two scenes of intense investigation. the first, of course, being where the bomber blew himself up there in round rock. take a look over my right shoulder. can you see the atf truck. the boarded up home of the bomber. in and around that area law enforcement securing the
scene. but, by the time the day was done yesterday, authorities had already found, of course a lot of the bomb material and that confession tape. >> i know everybody is interested in a motive and understanding why and we are never going to be able to put a ration behind these acts. he does not at all mention anything about terrorism. nor does he mention anything about hate. but, instead, it is the outcry of a very challenged young man. >> in the 25 minute cell phone confession 23-year-old marc anthony conditt also listed future targets he was intending to blow up before he was stopped. police said all seven of his bombs have been found suggesting there was no further threat from conditt but, adding that the community should still remain vigilant. i went into that community to speak to neighbors about the bomber and this absolutely terrifying ordeal. >> i seen him a few times
and waived. the other guy seemed like a cool dude the dad. i only saw the kid once. >>er time -- since the first day that this incident has came to austin. this is the first bombing we have had. it's affecting my income. buff, you know, i would rather affect my income than affect my life. todd: steve, anxiously, brian, this is not the only area on edge. there was a report of a suspicious package in los angeles from an austin address. but the bomb squad there checked it out and everything is okay. back to you. steve: that is good news. todd, live in pflugerville, thank you very much. during one of those press briefings, one of the atf guys was talking about what incredible law enforcement effort went into finding him. he said remember when the guy took off from the red roof inn and then went to
the ditch on the frontage road and stopped and the police then, this guy says we literally had austin police officers running toward a vehicle that had an explosive device in it that detonated. that is unbelievable courage. those are heroes. ainsley: they really are we are learning more about his family, too. his dad lived in colorado in the mid to late 1980s, his grandmother lived there and his aunt lived there someone went up to the aunt's door and talked to her. knocked on her door and this is what she had to say. >> this is just a horrible, horrible thing. you never know. it's just awful and i'm so sorry that everybody is dealing with this. the family is devastated and broken at the news that our family could be involved in such an awful way. we had no idea of the darkness that mark must have been in. right now, our prayers are for the families who have lost loved ones. our prayers are for those impacted in any way. our prayers are for the soul
of our mark. we are grieving and we are in shock. brain brian he was described by some people as extremely bright. she said she went on to say that christmas they basically sat around her table. no indications of this. he was jobless. one room is where all the bomb making material evidently was not throughout the house. they questioned two roommates. holding one roommate. one was exonerated. ainsley: sniffed around for bomb making material they didn't find anything suspicious. home schooled as a kid austin community college for two years but did not graduate. steve: 25 minute confession video that they were quoting in that report of todd's, apparently he made it between 9:00 and 11:00 on tuesday night as the police were closing in. he thought he would explain how he built the bombs and how he targeted people, which he didn't. and they will release the contents once the investigation is complete. brian: thought is he put his
phone on when he left the hotel that was it, it was over. who knows what he was thinking. six minutes after the top of the hour. the president of the united states noted that vladimir putin basically ran unopposed and told his own legitimate opponent if he ran he would go to jail. he didn't. vladimir putin had a sham election which is caught on video actually having people jam in the ballot box where he got 70% of the vote. like president obama, the president of the united states called up and congratulated president putin on the win. should he have congrats lathe you had, obviously, i don't think congratulations is the right word for a sham election, but the president is defending his move. steve: he is. ainsley: first, let's play for you what the media said about it, listen. >> it's not just what president trump said during that phone call with vladimir putin. it is also what he did not say that has some in his own party angry this morning. >> this would be like j. edgar hoover of the director of the fbi calling al capone to congratulate him on a
bank robbery. >> president trump went out of his way to praise putin and not bring up extraordinarily important and controversial topics. >> it's just the latest in what is obviously a long pattern of behavior by this president. >> the president often congratulates leaders who are not democratically elected. he often gives autocratic dictators congratulations. >> donald trump thought the first president to make a mistake about vladimir putin. the other ones changed their course. we will see if he ever. >> president trump to this day has said nastier things publicly about me, don lemon, chuck todd, meryl streep and the cast of hamilton than he has of former kgb operative and human rights oppressor is vladimir putin. steve: now through a leak from the west wing, apparentsly the president got a briefing book. and right across the top in big bold letters it says do not congratulate. also, call him on the fact
that a british spy or a spy and his daughter were poisoned in great britain. but the president was briefed orally that day. probably didn't look at the briefing book. but, nonetheless, somebody inside the west wing and mark meadows from the freedom caucus yesterday suggested that it was somebody from the president's own national security team, who is trying to embarrass him leaked that to the "the washington post" u. ainsley: someone said if that's the case that could be illegal, definite lay fireable offense. steve: criminal. ainsley: marco rubio said i didn't like that he congratulate. what disturbs me even more because it's dangerous as far as national security is concerned someone in his inner circle is allergic this information and releasing it. brian: what bothers me most is vladimir putin misinterprets all the fact that we look past these things and look at it as weakness. if you look at what happened over the last 12 years with the last two presidents. meanwhiles, the president tweeted this out i called president putin of russia to congratulate him on russian
victory in the past obama did. the fake news is crazed because they want me to excoriate him. they are wrong. getting along with russia and others is a good thing not a bad thing. just to finish this up. the thing about the president he actually is a significantly tougher than the other prior president on russia. look, h he has armed the ukrainians and hit the oligarch list. wecht along with sanctions. three days ago he condemned them for the poison attacks in britain. look at his actions, not past his words. hopefully there is a grand plan. steve: let's look at the actions of barack obama. he did exactly the same thing. he also, if the mainstream media is going to call president trump on i can't believe you picked up the phone and congratulations you won. look at the things that the president of the united states by the name of barack obama did in 2012. he congratulated him. ainsley: yeah. he congratulated also the islamic brotherhood candidate when he won
egypt's presidential election in 2012. he broke three decades of precedent in 2013 when he congratulated the winner of the iranian presidential election. and then congratulated turkey's president erdogan in 2014 the guy who said there is no such thing as moderate islam. brian: erdogan has done despicable things with that country as a nato ally. consolidated power and jailed the media. for him to call him. says he gets along with great that was abhorrent. steve: president obama called putin to congratulate him like they are he is coreiating donald trump. i was in an airplane so i missed all the coverage. was that on any of the other channels? just curious. ainsley: probably not. steve: just cure yussments. ainsley: curious. ainsley: what do you think? do you think he should have made that call? are you upset with the leakers? send us your emails and we'll read them in the show. brian: little bit later talking to the speaker of
the house huge budget to go over. how are we spending it? something to break down. steve: behind us, we have got the weather it sex stream and she is going to tell us about it. jillian: that is right. starting with that extreme weather. my goodness. did you get the snow? powerful nor'easter blasting the east coast with snow taking aim at new england today. meantime millions are cleaning up after more than a foot of snow fell in some places causing hundreds of crashes. the storm blamed for at least two deaths and tens of thousands of power outages. more than 4,000 flights have been cancelled so far with another rough travel day expected today. janice, we will hav will have a. moment the self-driving uber hit and killed a woman in arizona. video showing dark road and seemingly appearing out of nowhere. inside the car operator and ex-con raffaele vazquez repeatedly looking down and suddenly shocked before the crash. both women were not impaired. uber has suspended self-driving car program.
the house could vote on a massive spending bill to avoid a government shut down as early as today. republican leaders unveiling the 1.3 trillion-dollar plan wednesday night. the 2232 page bill includes money for defense spending and the border wall but does not provide a fix for daca. the president backs the bill. congressman jim jordan and sean duffy along with house speaker paul ryan will join us later this morning to talk more about the plan. that's a look at your headlines. i will send it back to you on the couch. brian: all right, jillian, thanks. steve: in the budget there is zero for the trump wall because it specifies. the language is none of the money can be used for a concrete wall. which is what the president has asked for. thank you jillian. ainsley: 13 minutes after the top of the hour. remember the high school teacher caught on camera going on disgusting antimilitary rant? >> they are not like high level bankers, they're not academic people. they are not intellectual people. they're the lowest of the low. ainsley: this morning a big update on his future and we
think you are going to like it. brian: we are paying for than $650 billion in taxes every year and don't know it how is it possible. the author exposing it all is going to join us next. ♪ image in the air ♪ ♪ next chapter ♪ copdso to breathe better,athe. i go with anoro. ♪go your own way copd tries to say, "go this way." i say, "i'll go my own way" with anoro. ♪go your own way once-daily anoro contains two medicines called bronchodilators,

the other ways the government is soaking you and taking money out of our wallets and putting it in theirs? ainsley: brand new book called "how do i tax thee" a field guy to the great american rip off. kristin how the government hides fees and how you can take action against it. kristin tate joins us now. we are giving a lot of people anxiety this morning. steve: we pay enough. ainsley: our taxes are due in a few weeks and look at our paychecks. it's just ridiculous. you are saying there are all these hidden fees and we are paying as a collaborative group we are paying 650 billion in hidden taxes a year. >> 50% of our income. taxation is a hot political topic. when we have these national dialogue about taxes we tend to focus on income taxes. people don't realize income taxes make up less than half of our tax burden. hidden taxes are embedded in every cost tax appearing and bill. balloon the cost of plane tickets to restaurant meals
to utility bills. we end up paying $650 billion a year in hidden taxes. but what's really incredible is that the resulting tax revenue is often squandered and not even spent in a way that makes our country, city and state a better place. i wrote "how do i tax thee" because i think hidden taxes need to be a part of the discussion. steve: absolutely. here are some of the things you don't think about. on your cell phone bill you are taxed over $120 a year. every electric bill inflated by 27% in taxes. taxes inflate the average cable bill by 10%. actually i think that one is okay since we are on cable tv. [laughter] >> it's really incredible and a lot of these bills are regressive. they hurt poor people more than people well to do. because everybody needs to pay electric bills. everybody needs to pay a cell phone bill. 95% of americans own a cell phone today. for somebody making six figures a few hundred extra dollars every few months doesn't mean much.
steve: sneaky. >> hidden taxes violate the principle of taxation is taxes should be visible to the people who pay them. ainsley: what can we do, kristin. >> a lot of this is just being aware of hidden taxes. because most of these are implemented on the state and city level. as we know where these stealth taxes exist, they are actually pretty easy to get rid of. again, most of them are implemented on the local level, we can hold our politicians accountable. in my book i give people tangible ways to demand accountable. the three pillars of a successful taxation system are thrift, transparency and fairness. steve: let's see what happens. kristin, congratulations on the book. >> thank you so much. steve: "how do i tax thee." ainsley: they always find a way. steve: supposed to be picked up by ice but slipped out of jail before agents got there. growing manhunt for that person. ainsley: fresh off the push to end the opioid crisis. one community rocked by the drug epidemic. some of their stories you
brian: quick headlines. overnight the house passing a bill giving patients terminal illnesses a right to try drug finally. not yet approved by the f.d.a. can you believe they held this up? the measure was backed by president trump and the house voted on it last week. it fell short. now, the measure has a good chance of becoming law as it heads to the senate which approved a similar proposal last year. and, the special election for pennsylvania's 18th district over. republican rick saccone conceding the race to democratic conor lamb. the election carried on for
more than a week after initial results were too close to call. and it was close. steve: difference of 700. this week president trump unveiled a plan to fight the opioid crisis in this nation and delivered some tough talk to drug dealers. >> we don't get tough on the drug dealers, we're wasting our time. just remember that. we are wasting our time. and that toughness includes the death penalty. brian: ainsley visited town hall and saw firsthand how one community is tackling the epidemic in their own backyard. ainsley: that's right. we went out to east meadow which is close to where brian lived in nassau county. it's the county, if you drive out on long island, goes through queens. and before you get to the hamptons, which is a different county in between a lot of families from new york city live out there. the dads, moms, working the city. the kids grow up out there. this is a major problem in our country. opioids and kids are getting
addicted. it's really affecting more kids than adults even though a lot of adults have back surgeries and take one opioid and then they are hooked. watch this. this is what is happening out in east mode dough. themode -- meadow. we talked to. so leaders in that community and talked to some parents who have lost their children. >> i worry that like every father. >> i feel like listening to you my kids are fine. there are not enough programs. we need to get into the schools. >> when you see a drug deal on your block because i know a lot of people here have seen it, right on our front lawns. >> i, too, have been to many funerals of many children have helped friends bury their kids from drug overdose. >> i'm going to tel tell you about my son rob. he was a member of this fire department. he served this community. rob died on april 10th, 2012. and we got him to the hospital and while they were still working on him in the emergency room, two of his friends who were also members of this fire department went on to be a cop and firearm and wonderful people came to me
with tears in their ice and they said, mr. priest, we should have told you. i said told me, what? what are you talking about? they said rob does heroin. >> you never even saw signs that your son was doing drugs, right? >> we saw some signs that we made excuses for. we wanted to believe it wouldn't happen in our house. ainsley: was he hanging out with the wrong crowd? how was he introduced to heroin? >> you know, i don't know. and i don't think we're ever going to know. i'm sure it was through friends. the thing that i will tell you is we are a middle class family, religious. two parent household. this thing crosses every line. it crosses racial lines. it crosses religious lines. it crosses economic lines. we just don't know how long my son was doing heroin. and he had told his friends he was going to stop. and i think he wanted to stop. and what we found is it just gets ahold of you.
and he just did it one more time. and that was the last time. ainsley: what's your message to people watching? >> my message is get out of your head the idea that it can't happen to you. ainsley: you think that you have a good kid. you probably do have a good kid, but there are so many adults. so many parents who have no idea that their kid was using, that their kid was an addict. >> this is every day middle class america. it's not a poor man's drug u it's not a rich man's drug. it's a drug. ainsley: tell me about the problem in nassau county and why you wanted to have this town hall? >> we have a serious opioid epidemic here in nassau county. and it's in every community. so the commissioner has targeted certain communities where we are seeing a lot of arrests, targeting them by looking at, you know, in realtime reporting where there are overdoses. overlaying that with where there are larcenies connected with drug use. >> go in with e, backed up by education, awareness, diversification and treatment. it's not just a singular approach where you go and
try to arrest yourself out of a problem. we are not doing that we are going in. we are doing enforcement to get them into treatment and then not walking away from the problem. we are coming back in 60 days to show them a result. ainsley: what did you think of the president's plan that he announced in new hampshire. >> failure is not an option. addiction is not our future. >> i think his remarks really highlight that there is a serious opioid epidemic not only in our county but all over the country, and he's looking for solutions and i can't blame him for that. >> in 35 years in law enforcement you realize that once a drug user, a drug seller is out of business, there is always someone to take his place. it's a supply and demand. it's a business. you can take the drug sellers out, but there is going to be someone to replace them as long as have you people that are using. we are going to go after the users, hopefully we can eliminate the dealers. ainsley: now, they have this overdose detection mapping system in place in this county and it's great because they have seen the overdoses go down in that
community. and a lot of people, the leaders in that community said i know y'all are mad at me. all of the neighbors were calling me saying why are you making us look bad, we have great community. he said because i'm trying to save lives. hats off to this yowrge just cos group of individuals in that area trying to bring awareness and save lives so other families don't have to experience what mr. priest did. if there are three or more drug overdoses in a 24-hour period. they are alerted and they realize there must be a bad batch of heroin out there. they alert the community do not do this drug. then they also are connecting all the larcenies with -- they have this mapping system that if there are a lot of larcenies in one area, they realize that's connected to the drug problem, too. because people are breaking into cars so they can support their drug habit. and then also there is a court system where they will try to -- they put you in a rehab facility or some sort of treatment, they don't let the press know if you have been arrested. because they are trying to protect these individuals, get them into treatment and help them so that they don't end up in prison for the rest of their life, or even
worse dying. steve: step in the right direction. impacts some people in some people in communities. that's why the president is taking it on head on. brian: 29 minutes before the top of the hour. the president just responded to get this the former president of the united states joe biden after he said this. >> they asked me why like to debate this gentleman? i said no, if we were in high school i would take him outside the gym and beat the hell out of him. brian: he wasn't packing off. congressman sean duffy here to react to that and more. as well as the budget. >> so much barking and noise and yelling. our role is to take three steps back and discern what really matters. the most important thing that we do. we are looking out for the forgotten men and women in this country. >> they are going to get a straight shooter no, holds barred. i'm not going to cut people slack.
viewers expect that. >> fox is the one place which defends people. >> we have voice. we won't be silent. >> who crolts my voice? noble. . ♪ ♪ i'll stand by you. mvo: with everything that is going on around us and in the nation, we need to work together. we need to do it more often to help people that need help. ♪ ♪ i'll stand by you. she's noticing a real difference in her joint comfort... karen: "she's single." ...and high levels of humiliation in her daughter. in just 7 days, your joint comfort can be your kid's discomfort. osteo bi-flex. made to move.

"fox & friends." steve: she is very talented. you are a lucky guy. ainsley: let's talk about the omnibus spending bill midnight tomorrow night government shut down is that going to happen? >> i don't think we have a shut down. have you a lot of the members of congress upset about what's happening. sso you know how the budget works. pass bail. break this up 12 bills. we did that in the house. sent it to the senate. and the senate is so dysfunctional they didn't do any appropriations. what happens is you have to pile all this money into one bill. we have had less than 24 hours to review this thing. it's 2200 pages. and we have to vote on it the problem is there is really good spending in here. we increase funding for our military. we give our troops a pay raise. we help with v.a. spending. we dress opioids, we sent out money for the wall. all good stuff. but, man, we are $21 trillion in debt. and we are spending way too much money. so you put, you know, guys like me in a hard place where you want to vote for
the good stuff but you don't want to bad for the bad stuff. you have to take it or leave it that's what we're left with today. i think it will probably pass the house and we will see what happens over in the senate a rot of us are unhappy with this process. brian: no one is reading 2200 pages in 2 hours. i think what bothers me most is the wall funding. it's 1.6 billion. think that's not close to enough. not only that they make you use the current technology. you are not allowed to you use a solid wall where a solid wall. not allowed to you build it higher. all those prototypes. that ends up being just a big facade because this is pure politics. the polling shows america wants a legitimate barrier. >> they do. brian: and this seems to be a shot at donald trump and his agenda. that's got to bother you. >> so, two things. one it's not the 25 billion that donald trump asked for. but we're over a billion dollars in wall funding. and that's only from today until the end of september. so that's plenty of money to
continue construction. the problem is, in the senate, you need democrat votes. and so democrats get to put their fingerprints on this bill. they don't like donald trump. they will don't like border security. they want an open border. so they push back on what donald trump ran on. which is border security and building a wall. and you know what? it's -- listen, it's a dysfunctional process. by the way paul ryan has commissioned a group of house and senate democrats and republicans to work through new reforms to this budget and spending process. because this is insane. steve: it's ridiculous. >> how do you get feedback from the american people. how do you get feedback from constituents to say i love this and hate that and vote for or against it they will can't even weigh in. steve: it's not wall funding. it's funding for a fence effectively. according to the stuff i read from pbs. >> see through. have you got to be able to see through it. steve: it's a fence. you mention the democrats, congressman. here is what is pulling to me. we learned this past week
that apparently this is being negotiated just by four people. the leaders from the house and the senate on both sides. and while the president was saying let's do something with daca in there. he didn't get his wall funding and the democrats didn't push for daca. i'm shocked at that this would have been their opportunity. come november, what are they going to tell the people? >> you are not shocked by that because, listen, democrats don't want a daca fix. donald trump offered 1.8 million daca people to get protection under his plan. there is only 700,000, 800,000 in the program right now. so a million more kids would be protected if democrats cared about daca kids, they would work with the president and republicans. what they want is a political issue. they want to use this against republicans to try to turn out votes. that's all this is about. this is about politics. not about people it doesn't surprise me in the least bit. and you pointed out earlier, america supports the president's plan. they want a daca fix.
they want -- they want border security. they want to end chain migration. so, this doesn't make sense to me why democrats are being so abstinent on this issue. ainsley: joe biden was down in miami and speaking about the nationwide movement against sexual assault. he was encouraging violence. talking about what he would do to the president. listen to this. >> when a guy who h headed up -- grab a woman anywhere and she likes it they asked me why like to debate this gentleman and i said no, if we were in high school i would take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him. brian: you heard that right? how do you feel about that? >> i thought that love trumps hate, guys? what's up with that. promoting violence from crazy uncle joe? here is the problem with joe biden. as a sitting vice president, he had a chance to run for president. but he was frightened away by bernie sanders and hillary clinton? he didn't have the backbone to run for president.
now is he going to come and say i'm a tough guy i'm going to take on donald trump. i would bet on donald trump whether they are back in high school or today to take out joe biden. but this is ridiculous. you can't win the debate. you go to violence. and this is what the democrats playbook is they sit there and applaud go, joe, you are so tough. it's ridiculous. steve: the president is not quoting you but close. crazy uncle joe. he said: >> i would love to roll back michael j. fox and back to the future and what happens back in the stadium with those two guys. donald trump is a big guy. they are not winning the debate right now. had historic losses in the democratic party. instead of talking about ideas and issues that drive a political agenda and
motivate people, this is what they resort to. and, you know what? what we do is talk about ideas and middle class. middle income people. that's why we are winning elections and that's why democrats will continue to lose. brian: he is trying to get the female vote from the president. and that seems to be the democratic playbook. steve: okay. go read your 2,000 page omnibus, would you? >> god help me. brian: jillian, we don't know your budget. we were just talking budget. do you have anything else on your mind? jillian: no. i got nothing. i'm listening to this conversation. it's very enlightening. brian: would you read me something? jillian: yes. escape jail moments before ice agencies were supposed to pick him up. investigators in harris county say he somehow slipped out while waiting for agents in the inmate release area. he was originally booked in the jail for theft and trespassing. you remember this guy, a california high school history teacher caught on camera going on antimilitary

brian: ncaa tournament continues into second week. the hardwood isn't the only place for march madness so to speak. steve: washington, d.c. is embroiled in own mayhem over andrew mccabe's use of that anti-trump dossier to justify the spying on innocent americans. ainsley: here to break down this washington march madness bracket is fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. >> i'm laughing because i wrote this column. i write in my column for thursdays on foxnews.com and elsewhere. you know part of writing a column is a catchy title. steve: sure. >> i called it march madness washington style. and our wonderful producers loved it when they saw that and they came up with. brian: a bracket.
>> they came up with a bracket. steve: let's go to the big wall. i don't seville nova anywhere there. tell us what we are looking at. >> you have fisa court it meets in secret. steve: you are starting on the left. >> i'm starting on the left. nobody to challenge what the government submits. no one to say to mccabe or comey, wait a minute, this is a piece of political clap trap written by the democrats and submitting it as if it were evidence. that's been going on for 40 years. the fisa court has granted 99.9% of government surveillance requests go over on the other side. you see the anti-trump political dossier funded by the democrats. you see andrew mccabe and his leagues using this dossier as the basis for a fisa application. and you see the transfer. we're talking about this during the break of fisa, which was written to protect americans from being spied on.
the first word in fisa the first word is foreign intelligence surveillance act. it's now been turned 180 degrees on its head to spy on americans. did andrew mccabe cause this to happen? no. it happened over 40 years. he is part of the culture that accepted it as the norm and utilized it. james comey did, republicans did. democrats did. leads to a crissments. steve: your championship bracket. >> constitutional crisis occurs when one branch of government is going after another. or when one branch of government is going after itself. brian: like when mccabe goes after sessions? >> like mccabe goes after sessions or mueller goes after trump. they are all in the same branch of government. or if donald trump exercises his constitutional authority, and directs rod rosenstein to fire bob mueller, then the congress will go after donald trump. that's a constitutional crisis. i hope and pray that i am
wrong and constitutional crisis is not coming. they are bred in secret when we don't know what the courts are doing. ainsley: so by spying on americans it's unconstitutional. >> absolutely. ainsley: they're breaking the law. they have been doing it for 48 years. >> for 40 years since 1978. it started very, very gradually. as i said mccabe didn't start this but he and the others took advantage of it when they went to the fisa court in october of '16, with that piece of garbage that was the dossier. they knew that the court was going to grants the warrant. ainsley: because they always do. >> they grant 99.9% of the warrants because no one is there. brian: he says mueller should be fired because it's dividing the whole country. >> i'm not in favor of firing mueller but the president has the authority tto do it. steve: indeed. thank you very much. brian: meanwhile straight ahead. we have telling you about the california city that vowed to break away from the
state's sanctuary laws, right? other cities want to do the same thing. we'll tell you about it. steve: u.s. house set to vote on 1.3 trillion-dollar spending ghispending bill this afternoon. congressman jim jordan says he's going to vote no. it's time for the 'sleep number spring clearance event' on the only bed that adjusts on both sides to your ideal comfort, your sleep number setting. does your bed do that? it's the last chance for clearance savings up to $800 on our most popular beds. ends saturday. visit sleepnumber.com for a store near you.
brian: speaking of mark penn who does these great analysis and of course he worked with the clintons for years on what the americans care and don't care about. do you know overwhelmingly americans want a strong border enforcement and they are against sanctuary cities in the country? democrats and republicans. ainsley: one of the big reasons the president won because he wanted to build that wall and not have sanctuary cities. steve: one of the developments is california has become sanctuary state. folks in the town of lois al lot
like they couldn't cooperate with ice. they voted on monday night 4 to 1 not to follow the suggestion by the state that they don't cooperate and so now we are learning that apparently a number of others, southern california counties and communities are contacting them and saying hey, how do we opt out of this crazy sanctuary state, sanctuary city business because we don't like it. ainsley: that's right. the commissioner of orange county, michelle steele, she said or the supervisor, not commissioner and the mayor said they thank los almitos for standing up. and then the mayor in one of these places in one of these towns, the town of alicio, the mayor had this to say. >> it makes us less safe. that is the problem. we have got to start pushing back on this stuff or we are going to ruin this state
completely. >> that's what's got to happen in illinois and across the country. people have got to stop being victims to the victims that are running the states who have an agenda. it doesn't match with their local agenda. who the heck wants illegals being paid and taking money out of the coffers so your kids suffer. and they are buried in debt in california anyway. steve: remember we told you about the oakland mayor who warned anybody in this country illegally, i heard there is going to be an ice raid coming up in a couple of days. well, thomas homan running the ice department right now, he said yesterday at a hearing that some of the people who ran away, three of those people who they were going to pick up have gone out and reoffended. so, that's all bad regarding sanctuary cities. ainsley: they were criminals and warned by this mayor. steve: she gave them the hey, run. ainsley: wonderful for these communities to stand um for how state legislatures feel.
dana loesch and house speaker paul ryan and jim jordan all going to join us. steve: busy show. you wouldn't believe what's in this kiester. a farmer's market. a fire truck. even a marching band. and if i can get comfortable talking about this kiester, then you can get comfortable using preparation h. for any sort of discomfort in yours. preparation h. get comfortable with it.

ii veteran. >> 99-year-old sydney walton and his son meeting president george h.w. bush at a rodeo. ♪ ♪ i say ♪ have a nice day ♪ steve: bon jovi singing from across the river in new jersey. it's not starting out as a nice day in new york city. we still have had flurries. we had a nor'easter, but you are with us so it's a great day. i walked out this morning and said it's still snowing. steve: still going. brian: my dogs were very happy about it hear from them a little bit later. it turns out they prefer that environment. steve: always wearing a if you are coat. ainsley: roll around in the snow. brian: tackle each other. steve: they are dogs. brian: i did tape it i was a little stunned and so were they taken aback about the
2232 page omnibus bill coming down the pike it's going to be the biggest spending bill we have ever had. it is a compromise bill between production and republicd democrats. leadership went over and explained why it's still good for republicans. ainsley: government will shut down on friday night. we have thwe count down clock. one day, 16 hours and 57 minutes. brian: third one if it does. steve: the president was entertaining vetoing it. because it doesn't have any money for his wall in it. keep in mind, there is $1.6 billion for border barriers. there is specific language that will not allow for a solid concrete wall. and so, the president wanted 25 billion for the wall in security. they are going to get 641 million for border barriers not to be used to
build a concrete wall. brian brian here is the thing. he wanted 60 miles. he knows he couldn't get it all without the daca deal of 25 billion. he got 33 miles. using $640 million, not the 1.6 to build the barrier. but it's going to be the existing technology, that to me is pure politics. what do you care if you are a congresswoman in san francisco, what it looks like in texas? steve: they don't want to make it a wall. it's all about a wall. brian: symbolism because that's what the president wants. ainsley: president says got $1.6 billion to start wall and southern border. rest will be forthcoming. most importantly got $700 billion to rebuild our military, 716 billion next year. most ever. had to waste money on dem give aways in order to take care of military pay increase and new equipment. i love that about it the military is going to get a pay increase. brian: 18% less than the levels than obama took over from george bush. we have to rebuild the
military because it is drip dry. that's what the president sacrificed. he sacrificed for now the temporary the wall that he wanted for the military he needs. mattis got what he wanted. steve: here's the thing. they are actually giving in this omnibus only going to fund the government through september, they are giving the president more money than he asked for. that's one of the reasons guys like jim jordan and mark meadows from the house freedom caucus. they are going to vote no because they go look, we were sent to washington to actually drain the swamp. this is completely inflating everything. we're also going to have paul ryan with us. is he one of four people who negotiated this. there are a lot of rank and file members of the house of representatives who are steamed. it's like why did we go to washington if our leaders are going to just do a behind closed doors. brian: do you know why? because. steve: better be a good reason. brian: 60 votes in the senate. some republicans will not vote. they need democratic votes. if paul ryan had his way, it
would be a dramatically different bill. he needs democratic votes to get it through the senate and he needs democratic votes to get it through the house. steve: 435 members of congress if four people are going to do it. brian: change the rules. steve: yeah. get rid of the filibuster. brian: yeah. but you do that and if the democrats get the astronaut in january, they won't like that. steve: absolutely. that's the way it works. ainsley: talk to these leaders and find out what they don't like about this and how it will effect you if the government does shut down on friday night. the president picked up the phone and called vladimir putin to congratulate him when he won the election, the election that was rigid. the mainstream media had a major problem with that even though president obama did it as well. listen to this. >> it's not just what president trump said during that phone call with vladimir putin. it is also what he did not say that has some in his own party angry this morning. >> this would be like j. edgar hoover of the director of the fbi calling al capone
to congratulate him on a bank robbery. >> president trump went out of his way to praise putin and not bring up extraordinarily important and controversial topics. >> it's just the latest in what is obviously a long pattern of behavior by this president. >> the president often congratulates leaders who are not democratically elected. he often gives autocratic dictators congratulations. >> donald trump not the first president to make a mistake about vladimir putin. the other ones changed their course. we will see if he ever can. >> president trump to this day has said nastier things publicly about me, don lemon, chuck todd, mayoral veep and thmayoralstreep than ht of hamilton than he has the oppressor vladimir putin. steve: here is a new wrinkle to it. somebody apparently in the national security apparatus of the white house leaked to the "the washington post"
one of the confidential top secret briefing papers. at the top of it said mr. president when you are on the phone do not congratulate. whatever do you do not congratulate. also, bring up that whole you poisoned a spy and his daughter business in great britain. but, here's the thing. the president obviously, doesn't appear, read that thing because apparently that day he was briefed by somebody in person. but, now, it's like who inside the west wing is leaking to the "the washington post"? ainsley: marco rubio said i don't like the fact that he called to congratulate. but what's worse, what's more of an offense because it puts american lives in danger when these briefings are leaked to the press. brian: the president tweeted this. i called president putin to congratulate him on his election win, quote, this is in brackets, in past obama called him office, the fake news media crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him. they are wrong. getting along with russia, and others, is a good thing not a bad thing. in theory he is right. and we know that there is other people on the left that say you have got to
have relations with kings and queens and dictators, regardless of how they win or lose. so far what we are seeing with vladimir putin, when you take the missiles out and say that's a show of respect. when you say here is a reset button, what you get is georgia, crimea annexed. what you get is the ukraine being tortured. have you them enter into syria and oversee the execution of hundreds, tens of thousands of innocent people in syria. vladimir putin only understands force. now, what the president does and gets little credit for, nor does he want it, it doesn't seem, he has gone on hard with sanctions. and if you listen to trey gowdy on sunday. they say why is he so nice to vladimir putin? he goes did you see what he did? he has the oligarch's list. he is arming the ukrainians. he has gone at them hard. but he hasn't gone at them hard publicly. sooner or later he is going it realize that vladimir putin will do -- only understanding one thing. that's force. he has got to be encircled and his economy has got to
be starved. steve: here is the thing. you saw the montage with members of the media with their hair on fire about the fact that the president called and congratulated vladimir putin as ainsley touched on for just a moment. president obama, when he was president did exactly the same thing congratulate putin on his elections. ainsley: president obama congratulated also the islamic brotherhood candidate when he won in egypt in 2012. he also broke three decades of precedent in 2013 to congratulate the winner of the iranian presidential election and congratulated president erdogan in 2014. steve: i don't remember anybody's hair on fire about that, just saying. brian: it wasn't. doesn't mean it was right. a week ago when he killed two expats in the u.k. poisoned 12 people overall. it's going to happen in new york city. if we have russians walking around then what are we going to do. steve: it's just the hypocrisy is stunning. more on this in a little bit because we have got to get
to this. 7:10 in new york city. we start with a fox news alert. maniac. that young man right there, the austin bomber left behind a chilling 25-minute video admitting that he did it. ainsley: now his family is speaking out. brian: todd piro live near the bomber's home in pflugerville, texas. etodd? todd: good morning to all of you, steve, ainsley and brian. take a look over my shoulder, can you see the house, the atf truck is in front of the boarded up house. inside that home is where authorities yesterday found a lot of bomb material on the bomber's cell phone that confession. >> i know everybody is interested in a motive understanding why. we are never going to be able to put a ration behind that he does not at all mention anything about terrorism. nor does he mention anything about hate. but, instead, it is the outcry of a very challenged young man.
todd: in the 25 minute cell phone confession marc anthony conditt also listed future targets he was intending to blow up. police said all seven of his bombs have been found suggest nothing further threat adding the community should still remain vigilant. meantime his family put out a statement that they were in grief and in shock and had, quote: no idea of the darkness that mark must have been in. his aunt spoke to reporters. >> this is just a horrible, horrible thing. you never know it's just awful and i'm so sorry that everybody is dealing with this. he was at my christmas table. he was a great kid. he was smart. he was loving. he was kind. i have no idea who this person is. todd: to find out more, we spoke to neighbors about the bomber and terrifying ordeal. >> i have seen his dad a few times: i saw the kid once. he was quiet to himself.
he seemed like a cool dude, the dad did. the other guy i only saw him once. >> actually is just started of working for a company called delivery express. every time i opened up the bake of the truck i was worried. since this incident came to austin. first bombing we have had. it's affecting my income. but, you know, i would rather affect my income than affect my life. todd: overnight, there was also a call of a suspicious package in los angeles with an austin address. but, bomb squad went out there, checked it out it is not a big deal. guys, back to you. steve: so maybe they know where all of them are todd, thank you very much. live report from texas. ainsley: thank you, todd. we have been telling you about convicted cop killer set to go free in just weeks for good behavior. this morning new effort to keep them locked um. brian: this morningy is driving the internet ba than bananas. can you tell why?
cases not happy, including our next guest. he is steamed. i just talked to him. g.o.p. congressman of ohio jim jordan. congressman, why aren't you happy with this bill specifically? is it the price tag or what we are spending it on? >> well, both. i mean, and it's not even close to what we told the american people we were going to do. it's not just conservatives who don't like this bill. the american people when they find out what's in it. that's going to take a while. we just got it 12 hours ago. we will vote on it in a few hours and it's 2200 pages that fund sanctuary cities. funds planned parenthood. restricts second amendment and grows the 1.3. lead to trillion-dollar deficit. i don't think the american people said let's put republicans in control of congress to do a bill like this. this may be the worst bill i have seen in my time in congress. the worst bill-s our leadership has ever allowed to you come to the floor. brian: they are doing it not because they want to do it but because they have to compromise with democrats who have a totally different
feeling about spending than do you. >> brian, american people didn't elect democrats to control the united states congress. they elected republicans. i don't think we told voters when they gave us the privilege to come here and serve and continue to fund planned parenthood and restrict second amendment liberties. let some bureaucrat take away second amendment rights and court of law. not going to fund this gateway earmarked boondoggle project and not fund the border wall. the one thing we don't fund is the one issue we all campaigned on a border security wall and that is not in the legislation. so it can't get any worse than this bill. we should stop. we should go back to the drawing board. we have to do a short-term funding bill, do that. but go back and do something consistent with what the voters elected us to do. brian: you know general mattis said suffering with funding bills. give everything mattis wanted. $80 billion. get up to the level he was before president obama took office and it's been
stripped dry. you are happy with the defense levels just not happy with the other levels. >> of course. that's what the american people elected us to do. they want our troops to get the pay raise they deserve and the military the best they are to continue to be the best and have what they need to defend this country. they don't want us to grow government. they don't want us to fund planned parenthood. they don't want us to restrict their second amendment liberties. they don't want to give money for the gateway tunnel and not give money for the border wall? they don't want those things. we were so close to winning this. brian: you are right. it wasn't shut down before and it was daca against this and you guys won that. if this is pure spending president and g.o.p. look like they can't govern. 60 votes in the senate and they are not going to change that. >> final. have the debate. take the debate to the american people and say we are going to fund our troops. in fact, we are ready to do this. chuck schumer shut the government down a couple months ago. a couple weeks later we sent him a bill to fund the troops the entire year and gave them the pay raise they needed and held the line on everything else. instead of having that
debate and win the debate. after chuck schumer embarrassed. we did what washington always does. we increased spending for everything. and now we are taking that increased spending levels that were set a few weeks ago and funding things like planned parenthood, continuing to fund obamacare. continuing to use money to take away people's second amendment liberties without getting their day in court that should never happen in this country and that's why thibill is so bad. you will see lots of conservatives vote against it. it's not what the american people want. brian: 10 seconds. why is the president supporting it. >> it's the only bill they put in front of him. put a good bill in front of the president he would support that too. i know he would. let's not bring the worst bill i have seen in my 10 years in congress to the floor of the house today. pit something good in fronts of the president consistent with what the american people elected us to do. brian: congressman jim jordan not going to be signing this omnibus bill. congressman, thanks for joining us this morning. >> you bet. brian: 10 minutes before the top bottom of the hour. 10 service members killed helicopter crash last week near the syrian border.

beijing property theft. the tariffs could amount to $30 billion. china now says it will, quote, take all measures to defend its rights and interests. that's a look at your headlines. send it downstairs. ainsley? ainsley: all right. thanks so much. seven u.s. service members. look at these faces. they were killed fighting for you when their helicopter went down last week near the syrian border. among the victims was christopher raguso, he is the one on the end. here are individual pictures of him. he was a 13-year fire department or new york city firefighter. he was a veteran serving our country. this was going to be his last tour of duty as a national guard flight edges near. and he leaves behind a wife, a breast cancer survivor and two young children. 5 years old and 6 years old. the tunnel to towers foundation has already pledged to help pay off their mortgage. and now the organization is stepping up to help the family of another one of those fallen heroes.
this man right here. technical sergeant deshon briggs who also leaves behind a wife and two children. the chairman and ceo of the steven tunnel to towers foundation is frank tiller. you know him. he is on our show a lot. the father-in-law of fallen lieutenant chris raguso. thank you both, gentlemen, for being with us. >> thank you for having us. ainsley: i'm sorry for your loss. >> thank you. >> how is your daughter doing and how are the children. >> she is doing well. she has the support of brothers and sister and mom and friends. she is getting along. they are taking carol of the kids. the kids actually have a normal life. they are going to school. hopefully they won't be too -- their minds are being, you know, busy. they are busy. they are playing. so, they are getting along. they are doing well. we are pulling together as a family and.
ainsley: chris was like a son to you. >> chris was unbelievable. chris was a role model to me. it's strange to say. i'm almost twice his age. and i looked up to him. obviously i wouldn't tell him that. but he -- i looked up to him. he was a great, great man. he was a great father. he was a great provider. and great all around guy. he cared about people. that's all he wanted to do was help people. he loved his family. and it went down to the hurricane down in texas down in puerto rico. and he saved countless lives. and overseas he was on a rescue helicopter and i can't imagine how many soldiers he rescue you had. ainsley: the kind of man every father wants their daughter to marry. >> absolutely. unbelievable role model and man. again, i would have never had said this to him but i was very, very proud of him. and he knew i was proud of him. i looked up to him just the response from the fire
department, and just from the air force is just overwhelming. like i said, every time these gentlemen open their mouths they say something to me, my jaw drops because i can't believe the outpouring of brotherhood of these organizations and it is just amazing. ainsley: you told me you said by frank stepping in and his organization paying for your daughter's mortgage, it's one last thing she has to worry about when she is going through this terrible time. frank, you want to bless another family. we showed the pictures of the gentlemen who lost their life fighting for our country. you lost your own brother who was running through the tunnel to the towers. he was part of new york city fire department as well you started this organization and now you will pay off the mortgage of someone else who lost their life. why are you doing this. >> i'm doing this right thing to do as americans. if somebody is going to go overseas and protect our

that the evidence in it is supportive of mr. quin quinonez. his practice to target students. in victor's case he went after him because of his connection in the military. also evidence that he went after students based on their religion, gender, and potentially even race and national origin. so, as an attorney, that really interests me. ainsley: victor, you were wearing a marine's t-shirt in class that day. that's when you started recording it your dad and two uncles are marines. why did you decide to videotape that? >> you know, i was wearing a sweatshirt of the marine corps. i began to record it because this is not the first time he has gone on a military rant. when i let my dad know, he told me you let me know the next time he goes on another rant like that. so, instead of telling him, i decided to record it.

the author of drone warrior is joins us in washington. he is special operations intel analyst. he knows everything about drones. he says, you think this is a good idea on the part of donald trump don't you? >> yes i do. this is value of having a business savvy president in office. trump wants to us compete. this plan will bring billions of dollars to the economy and boost allies abilities in war on terror. for years the state department had akay i can export controls when it comes to drone technology put in place by previous administrations for a different time. meanwhile the chinese government is building knock-off of our predator drones and selling them to the highest bidder. that is problem embarrassing from a competition standpoint we haven't done something to fix that. steve: right. let me ask you this, why would we want to give to our allies our supersecret drone technology? >> right, so let me be clear.
this isn't the lamborghini of tech that we v these are things that somewhat outdated at least to our military forces but are still highly capable. steve: you're saying this is the pacer, the pacer drone? >> absolutely but still very, very lethal. you should see the stuff we have in our arsenal. in the end it is about competition. this is much more about drones we're dealing with here. this is the fact of the competitive advantage. if we lose the competitive advantage for the rest of world. we had the leverage for so long. our allies will try to buy these from other countries. so why not us? steve: why not have american companies make the money. >> exactly. steve: you were talking about a story during the break trying to get drone technology for africa, right? >> this goes back to the archaic export drone systems for a difficult time. i remember going into state department meetings getting boeing drones, outdated,
exported for wildlife conservation, had to sit in bunch meetings where they told me you couldn't do that there are many other cases to use drones other than war. the fact of the matter they wouldn't let us export the technology at the time. i love the plan. it is great for the economy. it will be huge. it is long overdue. it's a fantastic plan. steve: exit question, how does this happen? can the president make the call or does it have to go through congress? >> it will go through number of different authorities. they're looking at current authorities to figure out how to revamp some of that in order to prioritize it. one of the priority countries is actually south korea. when you think about it, they're staring down the face of north korea. they want the best technology and that only benefits us. they're prioritizing countries like that and nato partners. hopefully we'll see something in the coming months because these allies are asking for this for years. steve: there is money to be made. why not? you know him at the author of

he admits he did it. now his family is speaking out. brian: todd piro is live near the bomber's home in pluegerville, texas, where we, he has the latest. hey, todd. reporter: hey, guys, good morning to you. right now as the sun starts to come up a little bit more activity outside of the bomber's home. inside the home authorities found a lot of bomb-making material on his phone, that confession. >> i know everybody is interested in a motive and understanding why and we are never going to be able to put a ration behind these acts. he does not at all mention anything about terrorism. nor does he mention anything about hate. but instead it is the outcry of a very challenged young man. reporter: in the 25-minute cell phone confession, 23-year-old mark anthony conditt listed future targets he was intending to blow up.
police said all seven of his bombs have been found suggesting no further threat but adding that the community should still remain vigilant. meantime his family pout a statement that they were in grief and in shock and no idea that the darkness mark must have been in. his aunt spoke to reporters. >> this is just a horrible, horrible thing. you never know. it is just awful. and i'm so sorry that everybody's dealing with this. i mean he was at my christmas table. he was a great kid. he was smart. he was loving. he was kind. i have no idea who this person is. reporter: overnight there was also a call for a suspicious package in los angeles with an austin address but bomb squad officials went over and determined it was nothing. guys, back to you. steve: todd piro live in pluegerville, not far from austin. thank you very much. they're still trying to filling out. brian: this week president trump
unveiled a 6 billion-dollar plan, earlier in the week and to fight the opioid crisis and delivered some tough talk to drug dealers. >> if we don't get tough on the drug dealers we're wasting our time, just remember that, we're wasting our time. and that toughness includes the death penalty. [applause] ainsley: this week i visited a town hall and saw first-hand how one community is tackling the epidemic in their own backyard. take a look. >> i worry that like every father -- >> listening to you, my kids are fine. >> there are not enough programs. we need to get into schools. >> when you see a drug deal on your block, i know a lot of people here have seen it, right on our front lawn. >> i do have been to many funerals of many children have had, helped friends bury their kids from drug overdose. >> i will tell you about my, our son rob. he was a member of this fire department. he served his community. rob died on april 10th,
2012. we got him to the hospital. while they were still working on him in the emergency room, two of his friends also members of this fire department went on to be a cop and fireman, they're wonderful people, came to me with tears in their eyes. they said, mr. priest, we should have told you. i said told me what? what are you talking about? rob does heroin. >> you never even saw signs that your son was doing drugs, right? >> we saw signs that we made excuses for. we wanted to believe it wouldn't happen in our house. ainsley: was he hanging out in the wrong crowd? how was he introduced to heroin? >> i dent know. i don't think we're ever going to know. i'm sure it was through friends. the thing that i will tell you, we are a middle class family, religious. two-parent household. this thing crosses every line. it crosses racial lines. it crosses religious lines. it crosses economic lines. we just don't know how long my
son was doing heroin. and he had told his friends he was going stop. i think he wanted to stop. what we found, it just gets ahold of you, he just did it one more time. that was the last time. >> what is your message to people watching? >> my message is, get out of your head the idea that it can't happen to you. >> you think you have a good kid. you probably do have a good kid. there are some adults, so many parents who had no idea their kid was using. that their kid was an addict. >> this is everyday middle class america. this is not a poor man's drug, or a rich man's drug. it's a problem. ainsley: tell me about the problem and why in nassau county you wanted to have this town hall? >> we have a serious problem in nassau county and it is in every community. the sheriff is targets communities where you see a lot of arrests. real time reporting where there are oh doses. overlaying that where there are
larcenies connected with drug use. >> we go in with enforcement, backed up by education, awarenesss diversion and treatment. not just a singular approach where you try to arrest yourself out of a problem. we're not doing that we're going in with doing enforcement to get them into treatment. we're not walking away from the problem. we're coming back in 60 days to show them a result. ainsley: what did you think of the president's plan he announced in new hampshire. >> failure is not an option. addiction is not our future? >> i think his remarks really highlight there is a serious opioid epidemic not only in our county, but all over the country. he is looking for solutions. i can't blame him for that. >> in 35 years of law enforcement a drug user, seller is out of business, there is always someone to take his place. it is supply and demand. it's a is about. you can take the drug sellers out but there will be someone to replace them as long as you have people using. if we go after the users, hopefully we eliminate the
dealers. ainsley: more people die because of drug overdoses than they do car accidents, if you can believe it. steve: over 100 people every day in the united states. ainsley: it is just heart-breaking. brian: 29 minutes after the hour. he was supposed to be picked up by i.c.e. but slipped out of jail right before agents got there. this morning there is a manhunt out for him. ainsley: the left is slamming president trump for his call congratulating president putin. dana loesch has a message for them next. they appear out of nowhere. my secret visitors.

♪ >> not just what president trump said during that phone call with vladmir putin. it is also said what he did not say that has some in his own party angry this morning. >> this would be like j. edgar hoover as director of fbi calling al capone to congratulate him on a bank robbery. >> president trump went out of his way to praise putin and not bring up extraordinarily important and controversial topics. >> president trump to this day has said nazier things publicly about me, don lemon, chuck todd, meryl streep and the cast of hamilton than he has kgb operative, current human rights oppressor, vladmir putin. steve: my goodness. that is the reaction from the made i can't after the president
called president of russia after his not surprising win. vladmir putin is a bad guy. you can't call him up and congratulate him, even though barack obama did exactly the same thing in 2012 but they didn't mention that, did they? brian: yeah so, should very called him and congratulated him? no. should he have called him? yeah. vladmir putin is evil person who goes out of the his way to stomp on people he doesn't like and kill those who turn on him like expats that he murdered up to 12 in britain. so, they wanted to sterner message sent. but for those who say the president doesn't send a stern message are not watching actions. sanctions on the oligarchs. the sanctions on the country. the way he is arming the ukrainian government with real weapons not blankets like the previous president. that sends a strong message.
he said they were guilty of doing that the week before, but calling them up and speaking to him is questionable. ainsley: did vladmir putin, did he rig the election? talking about his election. was it a sham election? yes, it was, it was. does the president of the united states traditionally call presidents from other countries to congratulate them? yes. so they can work with them for future business dealings. steve: surely. ainsley: look at barack obama, you mentioned that. look at his record. he congratulated the islamic brotherhood candidate back if 2012 on winning egypt's presidential election. he broke three decade of precedent in 2013 to congratulate the winner of the iranian presidential election. congratulated turkey's president erdogan back in 2014. same guy who said there was no such thing as moderate islam. steve: here is the thing, one. reasons we know the president was not supposed to congratulate president putin was the fact that somebody in the west wing, they do believe somebody from
the national security apparatus, leaked to the "washington post" classified documents. that is criminal and it is fireable. brian: but you also know what is dividing this country right now, russia meddled in the election. with the finger pointed across the aisle, it created 18 months of turbulence. we found out what they did, that made it worse than other thing. steve: it is hop pick chrissie. -- hypocrisy. they should have called obama on it. brian: that is what makes it so -- along with the poisoning in britain. steve: by the way mr. obama did the same thing. but never mind. 22 minutes before the top of the hour. jillian has a developing manhunt. jillian: is a story we're following all morn moving. the manhunt is intensifying? texas for an inmate escaped jail moments before isis agents were supposed to pick him up. manuel soto somehow slipped out

♪ steve: later today in that building right there, the u.s. house of representatives is set to vote on a $1.3 trillion spending bill to fund the government through sent and some conservatives like congressman jim jordan who was with us earlier are ready to vote no. >> this may
be the worst bill i have seen in my time in
congress. the american people didn't elect democrats to control the united states congress. they elected republicans. i don't think we told the voters we were running for job, gave us privilege to serve we would continue to fun planned parenthood. this gateway earmark boondoggle project and not fund the border wall? you will see a lot of conservatives vote against it because it is not what the american people want. brian: speaker paul ryan has a different view. he says no bill this size is perfect. jump ahead to get into your mind. you believe jim jordan is wrong. this is not the worth bill ever. why is he wrong, mr. speaker? >> good to see you. he is wrong. jim has never voted for any of these bills. i don't expect him to do anytime in the future. it doesn't fund gateway and funds the wall. you know how long the funding bill lasts? six months. this is not a 10-year bill, six months. what we did in this bill we funded in the next six months
exactly the budget requests the administration asked us for the border. funny we pass -- the house passed all these bills back in september. we passed them with republican only votes. this has the exact same funding for the border in this bill we funded back in september with all republican votes. so it is kind of interesting people are saying different things now. but here's the point. the administration asked for 74 miles of border wall funding. we did 100 in this bill. we actually exceeded what the administration asked us for for the border. here is the deal on the border. we asked the border patrol, what do you need on the border? what they tell us is, the conditions on the browned determine what kind wall they wanted, different places. for instance, they warrant concrete barrier with a fence on top, earth behind it, rio grande valley so it doesn't get washed ain floods. in the desert they want to see through it so we did that. we asked the border patrol, what
do you need? here is the resources this is $1.8 billion. this is what the president asked for. ainsley: the president said he wants all the funding in place, then he will build entire thing? >> we want to get it going. we don't want to wait until a multiyear is passed. this sort pa of the process, i hate, the senate has a filibuster. the reason coming up to the deadline government stopping funding is because of the senate filibuster. we fund government one year at a time. that is how the budget proses is work. we'll fund the wall one year at time, next six months. on gateway, there was a earmark for gateway, all the mass transit funds wig cities get, they wrote it such a way new york would only get the money. we repealed the language. that is not in here anymore. we took that language out. the administration, the president gets to decide mass transit money. i want to clear up the misinformation.
brian: 1.6 billion, the 1.6 billion is the total s that wrong? i only heard 650 million goes toward the wall. >> 1.6 for the entire -- border also you need fences. you need cameras. you need electronic devices. you need aerial devices to be able to police it. in the mountainous areas you can't build a wall over a mountain. you need cameras and drones up there. it is a border wall system that the border patrol tells us they need. we fund their request, based on what they say they need to secure the border. different kinds of wall based on different kinds of conditions on the ground. that is it what we fund. steve: not the wall that the president inspected prototype? >> no, there is bunch those. there are more than one based on different conditions. in a river valley you don't want a stand-up wall that washed away in a flood. we have one that stand up to flood with a levy with a fence on top. steve: ultimately, mr. speaker, the president said i need 18, $20 billion for the wall. >> that is over number of years.
this is 1.6 over the next six months. steve: some suggested maybe with the omnibus spending bill they might get the wall and the daca provisions as well. >> right. >> steve: we heard earlier in the week apparently behind closed doors you guys were negotiating with the democrats. >> that's right. steve: to go ahead provide relief for these daca kids. but apparently the democrats were not interested, which shocks me. >> that's right. so we, president, i, other leaders in the house and senate offered that to the democrats and said no. we'll do multiyear funding for the wall for multiyear relief from the daca kids. they walked away. they wouldn't take that. there isn't a daca solution here. we have the wall in here for the next six months. by the way we fund the president's opioid campaign to combat opioid abuse. the president asked us to put "fix nics" to plug loopholes, which the nra supports, the school safety issue is in here.
we have, biggest increase in the military in the 15 years. biggest pay raise for men and women in uniform is eight years. ainsley: that's wonderful. >> we need to rebuild the military. we lost two f/a-18 pilots. we lost four times as many people in training accidents than combat. why? obama shortchanged the military. this is the trump jim mattis budget for military. that is the biggest victory what we're doing for our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines for our veterans. this fixes that massive problem. this funds the wall, fixes the military, fight opioids, does the things we said and does not
fund gateway. gives donald trump the decision on gateway. steve: mr. speaker you have a busy day. you need a bunch of yeses. >> take care, guys. steve: step aside. >> oak ridge boys coming up.
