tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News July 16, 2020 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
see nancy is a brand-new special. good luck, nancy. we will talk again soon. nice to see you. in the markets, neil, has got you covered. the president is going to be at the white house south lawn. we will talk about regulations. until then, here is neil. >> neil: thank you very much. busy hour here as well. all eyes on the south lawn of the white house. rose garden, the president going to talk about regulations that have been dramatically cut. much of the economic turnaroun turnaround -- the market turnaround started with the regulations being caught long before taxes were cut. we are honored when the president speaks. you saw the attack on police. the first interview with the chief of the apartment in new york terrence monahan. he was really banged up pretty badly. he's talking to us here about what happened at an event that was supposed to honor the police
and blank the police. something went very, very wrong. he is here. then ric grenell not wanted at carnegie university? what happened? are they slighting him simply because he works for the president of the united states? or is that this president that has got their goat? we will be talking to him. and then masks, all the rave right now. better than two dozen companies are telling you, no matter what the rules of the states, but the mask on. and the push by states to do the same computer then there is facebook's mark zuckerberg who will be interviewing dr. fauci also says it is a good idea. and what he has to say about his relationship at the white house. all of that coming up as well. welcome everybody, i am neil cavuto and this is "your world." what a busy world it is. justin fisher at the white house at an event that is supposed to be all about focusing on the economy and what many argue was
the first act by this president to get it going. >> the white house is billing this as a celebration on the south lawn of the president's deregulation agenda. let me paint a picture for you. there's about 200 people here sitting in front of what i believe is a crane. unless out of the crane, and says "the trump administration." at the crane's lifting up some weights from the bed of this red truck. underneath the red truck, it reads "four years of regulatory freedom" appeared on the other side, you have a blue truck with all the weights on top. underneath that it is says, 40 years of regulatory burden. the message is president trump is really promising to expedite infrastructure projects by cutting red tape and rolling back regulations. it is something that really started pushing yesterday down in georgia. it culminates today. at the white house press secretary kayleigh mcenany gave us a preview of what we can expect to hear from
the president during her briefing earlier today. >> secretary mcenany: deregulation has been a top priority of this president. the president reversed a disastrous overregulation of the obama-biden administration. under's between nine, 70 regulatory actions have been taken for every one new regulation. this amounted to $50 billion in regulatory cost savings. >> democrats say the cost of these expedited infrastructure projects are of a loss of environmental protection. former vice president joe biden put forth his own infrastructure plan that places a heavy emphasis on improving energy efficiency in buildings and in housing. it is pretty clear the white house believes that they believe this message of the regulation is going to be a winning issue with voters in november which is just four months away. the other big news today is this shake up the very top of the trump campaign. for months until election day,
he's going to be taking over for brad who is going to be stepping down and returning to what he was doing in 2016, which is overseen the campaigns digital operations and data collection. it is something that has been talk about for quite some time, but still caught many staffers late last night by surprised when the president first announced that. anytime you replace a campaign manager this close to election day, never a great sign. you have to think about where president trump was at this point in 2016. he was on his second of three campaign managers. it is never a great time when you have a shake out this high up at the top of the campaign, but it is also something that president trump has done and overcome four years ago. >> neil: yeah, that is true. it worked for him then. i guess it will work for him n now. she will be updating on what the president is planning here. more regulatory cuts we told our company. a big one from nbc news that
says the president continues to trail joe biden. this one that caught our attention, because it takes some of the biggest argument, the president's argument that has been borne out in poll after poll until this one on the economy. the president now trails joe biden on five points on who would be better at handling the economy. some look at this as an outlier. others say that it just doesn't make sense. it explain this regulation cutting push the president will be promoting today on the south lawn of the white house. to consciousness and how wall street has reacted to this. a lot of financial fans are waiting this. a poll like this particularly when it takes an advantage away from the president on the economy, it might be an outlier, but it is the first time we've seen that. even though he trails and other areas, it has never been on the economy. what are we to make of this? >> you can attribute some of those shake-up in a campaign to
polls like that. there are internal polls are showing similar stuff, not that he's losing to joe biden on the economy but he starting to catch up on the economy. the problem that the trump administration has an campaign has is that they have not been able to define joe biden as he is. he's been able to basically spend this to trillion dollar spinning jamboree on green energy jobs, which you know, sounds like, you know, pie in the sky. it often is. we only go back to the obama administration to remember solyndra. this is obama's green energy plan on steroids. it usually doesn't amount to much. but still, the trump administration has not been able to define joe biden as some sort of left-winger. based on this policy, he is a tax guy that wants to raise your taxes. he just doesn't want to raise corporate taxes. he wants to raise a lot of
individual taxes. this is going to be a 180 from what we have here. the trump administration -- we create the coronavirus nor the lockout that were necessary, but before that happened, things were pretty good. the economy was going great. the environment wasn't imploding. all of these are issues that they need to start to underscore and to explain and to frame joe biden. >> neil: i think you are right. it is interesting that we are going back to the beginning he here. long before the tax cuts, all the president can do by executive edict. only executive orders to remove regulations. in that pace picked up. we had months of that before we got the tax cuts. i daresay that much of the approval we did see to say nothing of the market surge and we would eventually see started with a cut and regulations. what you make of that? >> people's eyes often glaze over when you talk about
deregulation. it was a huge tax cut to businesses. it allowed businesses to start hiring again. it allowed fracking to take off which hired a lot of people. there is an argument to be made here. the trump administration has to make it. it is interesting that perhaps they are using today. whatever they've got going there. about deregulation. and i think this is something people should pay attention to. we are going to come out of this coronavirus enzyme time. there's going to be in economy at some point. the last time we had people like joe biden in charge, we had extremely low wage growth. we had extremely low economic improvements, gdp growth. we had a raging stock market. under trump, it is quite the opposite. we had a raging stock market, but we had wage growth and we had decent economic growth. we also had very low unemployment. he has a record there. he has not been able to articulate it. maybe this new campaign chairman is putting this in motion today.
maybe this is the beginning of donald trump's comeback. there's there's not a lot of time left. >> neil: we did notice the red and blue trucks. as you know, wall street isn't bad or blue, it is green. about making money. there will probably be a green truck very shortly. i'm wondering, how is wall street crunching this possibility? they made a lot of money under this president. they made a lot of money under the last president. i don't think they really focus on their politics as much as how much money they make. is that in question now? are they talking about the same tax you are talking about? are they worried this is all going to go? the president said he liked the other guy and you might as well kiss your 401(k) goodbye. speak out their clients are forcing them to react. what i'm hearing from people, senior executives a at the major brokerage farms, merrill lynch, ubs, morgan stanley, their clients are calling and saying,
what the heck is this? is this guy going to raise the top grade to x? how do i plan for that? there are those colds going on right now. because joe biden when it comes down to is offering an agenda that is radically different than donald trump. if you are a financial advisor, i could tell you what they are saying. don't panic. the federal reserve is still very important. they will keep interest rates to zero. don't sell everything off. they are going to have to at some point, you know, get real about what joe biden represents in terms of fiscal policy and taxes. and that is going to be reflected into individual investor's portfolio at some point. it is probably too early to do that now. i start taking profits at the table now when we have a little bit left of this bull market to go? i think there will be some volatility as we get past navy memorial day and we start
talking about the reality of a joe biden presidency if he is still out by double digits as we have seen in these recent polls. lots to go here. it's not even a debate. donald trump hasn't been able to define joe biden and his fiscal policies just yet. a joe biden has been largely silent. he's late coming out. he's going to have to defend some of this stuff. he will have to defend by $2 trillion and his green energy infrastructure spending is really worth the massive tax increases on individuals that will have to come. he will have to explain why from an economic standpoint, alexandria conseil cortez should be running around the white house and why should be listening to elizabeth warren. these are all issues that need to be explained. the trump administration does have its work to cut out for them. they need to frame these issues better. >> neil: that is what this whole affair on the south lawn at the white house is about. thank you very, very much. these polls are all over the
map. this in bc when they got a lot of attention where you have more a double-digit advantage for joe biden over the president. there is a rescue someone that honestly looks at more republican voters uncannily accurate four years ago. just a flip of the coin. there have been others that look at the overall sampling and much more of a horse race certainly in battleground states that we have presently seen. we do want to step back from that and remind you as we always do that polls are like snapshots. one snap is shot and onto the next image. we are following this waiting to hear from the president and also following a lot of elements we saw in new york over the last few days, particularly those that were part of the black lives matter trying to break into appreciate the police debuted in so doing, actually getting into physical fights with some top law enforcement officials in new york including the guy who is the chief of the
department. he is here. a little battered, a little bruised, but here. ♪ oh, oh, oh, ozempic®! ♪ (announcer) once-weekly ozempic® is helping many people with type 2 diabetes like emily lower their blood sugar. a majority of adults who took ozempic® reached an a1c under 7 and maintained it. here's your a1c. oh! my a1c is under 7!

hirings. a lot of them buying back stock. a lot of them propelling their operations even further. the tax cuts came along after that, it was a positive one-two punch. the president mentioning this today and saying the regulatory deal that doesn't get a lot of press attention have really laid the groundwork for this in recovery in the boom that followed. he's going to be featuring that whole point with some there. we did notice a couple of pickup trucks there. red and blue. the conservatives and liberals alike. that is just me. the green truck problems, then you know it is all about the green and the money, which has been a substantial win at the markets back. a little bumpy ride today. the fact of the matter is that markets have gone up appreciably from the lows we experience in march. the president will make his way to the podium. before he does, i do want to go to laura who has been following some developments in new york on
this attack line on police that did bring up the guy who runs the police department and the city. do we know, did they ever get all of those involved in that attack? >> you know, just a short while ago, we learned that a woman had taken into custody earlier today could be the cane building suspect that we've seen on that video blasting police over the head on the brooklyn bridge yesterday. nypd telling us that that woman is getting a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. the horrifying video shows how bad things really got. it happened yesterday, and we are going to send it back to y you. >> neil: all right, we will get more on that. right now, the president of the united states. he has just switched his campaign manager and also, now using this as an opportunity to crow about the regulations. >> president trump: we are here today to celebrate and
expand our historic campaign to rescue american workers from the job killing. before i came into office, american workers were smothered by merciless avalanche of wasteful and expensive and intrusive federal regulation. these oppressive burdensome mandates were a stealth tax on our people, slashing take-home pay, suppressing innovation, surging the costs of goods and shipping millions of american jobs overseas. millions and millions and millions. it never ended. nearly four years ago, we ended this regulatory assault on the american worker. and we lost the most dramatic regulatory relief campaign in american history by far. no other administration has done anywhere near. [applause] thank you. at the heart of this effort was a revolutionary promise for every one new regulation issue,
we pledge that to federal regulations would be permanently removed. we not only meant that ambitious goal which at that time people said was impossible. we have vastly exceeded it. for every one new regulation added, nearly eight federal regulations have been terminated. [applause] it has been an incredible achievement. as you can see behind me, we have removed the gigantic regulatory burden americans have been forced to carry for decades, freeing our citizens to reach their highest potential. our historic regulatory relief has provided the average american household an extra $3,100 every single year. and we are going up from that number. [applause] we are going up from that number. think of that. $3,100 per household. joining us today is
vice president mike pence. thank you, mike. [applause] commerce secretary wilbur ross. wilbur, thank you very much. labor secretary eugene scalia. thank you. health and human services secretary alex azar. thank you, alex. transportation secretary elaine chao. thank you. we had a great day in georgia yesterday cutting regulations. like no one has ever seen befo before. epa administrator, andrew cuyler. thank you, andrew. thank you very much. acting director ross vote. thank you. and small business administrator. i love her name, jovita carranza. thank you very much. thank you. cms administrator seema verma. thank you, great people. and there was a great people.
they do an incredible job. i also want to thank the many state and local tribal leaders who join us in this great cause. thank you very much and thank you for being here. we appreciate it. thank you all very much. but we have achieved together is truly without precedent. it never happened before. the previous administration added over 16,000 pages of heavy-handed regulations through the federal registry. that is why nothing got done. under my administration, we have removed nearly 25,000 pages of job destroying regulations, more than any other president by far in the history of our country whether it was four years, eight years, or in one case, more than eight years. the prior administration piled up more than 600 major new regulations, a cruel and punishing regulatory burden that cost the average american an additional $2,300 per year. think of that, the average
american, $2,300. regulation. hitting low income americans by far the hardest. these regulations also inflicted a steep economic toll on african-american communities. by contrast, putting more money into the pockets of hardworking americans. in addition to saving every family more than $3,000 per year, my administration has just issued another reform that my council of economic advisors estimates will lower the price of new vehicles by more than $2,200 per vehicle. and i think we are going to get that up to $3,500 per vehicle. [applause] it is very exciting. by the way, they vehicles will be better, they will be stronger, and they will be savior. our regulation cuts are also delivering massive savings on
broadband internet services and some home energy bills will be really historically cut. it is actually amazing. as well historically low in gasoline prices. gasoline prices, i think it was $1.99. at the same time, we saved our oil companies. we are now the largest since we've been here, the largest energy source in the world. nobody is leaving close. it's great. we saved them. they had a hard time a number of months ago and friendly for a long time, but we have saved them. $1.99 they were telling me and in some cases lower than that. we were bringing back consumer choice and home appliances so that you can buy washers and dryers, showerheads and faucets. showerheads, you take a shower, the water doesn't come out. you want to wash your hands, the water doesn't come out. what do you do? do you stand there longer or take a shower longer? because my hair, i don't know
about you, but has to be perfect. [applause] dishwashers, you didn't have any water, so the people that do the dishes, you press it and it goes again, and you do it again and again. so you might as well give them the water, because you will end up using less water. so we made it so dishwashers now have a lot more water. and in many places in most places of the country, water is not a problem. if they don't know what to do with it. it is called rain. they don't have a problem. and old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs, i brought them back. i brought them back. [applause] they have two nice qualities. they are cheaper, and they are better. they look better, they make you look so much better. it's important to all of us. but they are better. and they are much cheaper. and they were mandated out, legislated out, and we brought
them back. they are selling like hot cakes. we stopped the egregious abuse of the clean water act which extreme activists have used to shut down construction projects all across our country. when i signed that legislation, i had many farmers and construction people standing behind me. people that haven't cried since they were a baby, some of them never even when they were a baby and they were crying. we gave them back their life. they took away their land. they took away their rights. they took away their life. by reining in epa overreach, my administration has returned the agency to its core mission of ensuring clean air, clean water, and a truly pristine natural environment, our air now and our water is as clean as it has been in the last four decades. yesterday, our country achieved yet another groundbreaking milestone. by completing a sweeping
overhaul of america's badly broken infrastructure approval process. it was totally out of control. instead of taking out the 20 years to approve a major project, we are cutting the federal permitting timeline. it is already been done. to a maximum of two years or less in some cases even less than one year. [applause] and it is possible that it won't qualify. it's possible that it won't be good environmentally or safety wise, in which case, at least in a year or two, we will raise their hand and you won't make it. but most projects will make it. but you won't go for ten, 15, 18, or 20 years. there are many horror stories that we could relay. we are reclaiming america's proud heritage as a nation of builders. my administration is also eliminated passive regulatory barriers in our battle against the china virus. of these actions and save countless lives speeding up the production of equipment.
that means ventilators like nobody has ever seen before. probably the greatest source of manufacturing, the greatest achievement since world war ii. we are now making ventilators for countries all over the wor world. and medicine, accelerating the delivery of life-saving treatments and ensuring that we will have a vaccine in a record time. we are doing fantastically well on that. that will be up for another time, and other meeting. but we are doing on therapeutics and vaccines incredibly well. no administration in history has removed more red tape more quickly to rescue the economy and to protect the health of our people. when you think of it, we are all set up as we get the vaccine or therapeutic, we are set up militarily, we are going to be delivering it in record time. it is all set to move. we put an investment up front. and we have logistical people, generals, great people.
they are going to be delivering this all over the country as soon as we have it. we've made tremendous progress. you've been reading about it. in total, we've taken more than 740 actions to suspend regulations that would have slowed our response to the china virus. this includes lifting restrictions on manufacturers so that our great autoworkers could produce more than 100,000 ventilators. so we have done over 100,000 in 100 days. think of that. and we didn't have ventilators. we were set up for ventilators. he became a country that's making a lot of them, helping so many others. >> neil: we are going to continue to monitor this. i do want to clarify a couple of things that he said that no president in history has got regulations as much as he has appeared that is true. i think you might have mischaracterized the regulations that were added under barack obama. they were largely financial related. you might recall, we had the
financial meltdown. and much of those regulations were geared to preventing banks from ever investing in things like risky mortgage securities, that tended to be the scourge of that entire period. so more than half of the regulations the obama administration added where post-meltdown. another quick point when the president referred to the horrible results -- whether disappointing results of the prior administration were adding those regulations, be that as it may, the unemployment rate did under barack obama go down from a high 10% to around 4.7%. president trump sent that even lower eventually getting us around 3.5% unemployment rate. i did want to leave you with the impression that during those eight years when obama first came into office and we were bleeding about a million jobs per month that that was a standard fare, and that characterized the whole eight years b of the recovery itself
might have been weak, but we were coming off a meltdown. both presidents can crow about their growth they saw, but it was not a disaster. not only did the doubt essentially triple during his tenure, whether you want to call the increased regulations and other things that police financial companies as the bane of our existence, those companies did very well. americans did very, very well. i just want to put that in some context here. it was not disastrous in the prior eight years, just like it hasn't been disastrous with an iris under this president. just doing a thing on that. we are monitoring this. frank wants us to get a read on this. at the economy as you know, frank is a very central issue to this president. he is obviously taping a little bit at this latest poll that show that even on the economy, he trails joe biden. that could be an outlier.
what do you think? >> i think that as you watch all of these surveys, you always throw out the one that is most supportive of the democrats, throughout the one that is most supportive of the republicans. they really aren't any right now. you do an average. at the averages that donald trump is down 10 or 11 points. this is significant. the fact that he is now losing to joe biden on the economy in the latest polling is also significant. it really does matter. because in the end, more voters vote on the economy than anything else. but i want to bring up something in that latest poll, the nbc poll that no one's talking about the republicans have a 4-point deficit to the democrats which is the lowest it has been a long time on a generic congressional ballot. 47% of americans want to vote for a democrat for the house. 43% republican. traditionally, if republicans are within 4 points out the democrat on that boat, it means
that they are within striking control of congress. trump is down 11 points. i don't want to kill you with math. trump is down 11. republicans in the house are only down 4. this is not a meltdown for the republican party. in fact, it can give the biden campaign a reason to feel comfortable, because in some areas, the g.o.p. is still doing quite well. it goes back to my point that i have been making for two weeks. it's not that campaign manager that is causing trouble in the trump reelection campaign. it is the campaign message. >> neil: so many argue that president distracts from that message when he goes on some of these tangents. he has a good case to make that he is today on regulations and cutting them. people have different thoughts on that of whether he got too much and all that. but he has a good case there and a good case prior to the economy growth and the record low
unemployment rates across all demographics of our society. and that is what he should be pounding. as well as the comeback in the last couple of months and jobs. better than 8 million gained. that is happening a lot sooner than expected. but he can't stand that message. i'm wondering whether a new campaign manager can make sure that he does. >> a new campaign manager only has control over the overarching strategy. what is the issues that you talk about. this president as he was on your show moments ago, this president determines exactly what he's going to say. i will give you three examples. he talks about law and order. when your viewers hear law and order, they think cops being really tough on protesters. what those swing voters, these floating voters want more than law and order is public safety. safe neighborhoods, safe homes, safe communities. second, he likes to call his
supporters warriors. for the undecided voter, they don't see themselves as warriors. they see themselves as hardworking taxpayers. that matters much more to them. third, he talks about a silent majority. what the public is responding to when they voted for a trump with someone who would be their voice. it was donald trump's language in 2016. and it was brilliant. and he refuses to use that language today. neil, i know the consequences of what i'm saying to you right now. the president's message is off, and he is not going to lead joe biden with his current messaging. >> neil: all right, i will watch it very closely. part of that messaging is to trump -- again no pun intended the economy. thanks to his efforts to cut regulation. many argue -- i don't know if frank agrees with us how he handles the virus and also this law and order push that he has been making that might be timely especially given what has
happened in so many american cities. in portland, where there has been a lot of violence and problems in seattle. and in new york, where police were under fire. and they were the ones being targeted. laura ingle was interrupted by the president of the united states of the bed earlier. i want her to follow up on that report because it is still an ongoing issue in new york. isn't it, laura? >> it is a huge issue every single night in new york over the last several weeks, there have been violence and shootings. we have the protests that happen on the brooklyn bridge yesterday where we had dual protesters going on. and in this horrific incident where protesters and police clash. a woman has been taken into custody who was believed to be the cane welding suspect who reached over the fence and was hitting those officers over the head. you have been seeing the video all day long. it is really terrible. and they have been looking for that suspect.
they've got this woman in custody now going under a psychiatric evaluation. we also want to share with you some of the newer videos we got from the nypd today. the horrifying video back on the bridge really does show you just how bad things got which led to broken bones and stapled to the head for some officers among those injured, that the above -- i know you're talking to you soon. he suffered injuries to his hands. the nypd releasing this new footage showing what things look like as protesters clash with police officers on bike patrol on the brooklyn bridge as well. this all went down a few feet away from an antiviolence march led by local clergy who were calling for peace in the city. new york city mayor bill de blasio signed reform measures yesterday including a ban on choke hold and other restraints while condemning the violence against police. lesson. >> there is no situation in which it is acceptable to attack a police officer, period.
i talked to terry monahan after i heard that he was they are. thank he's okay. no, it is just not acceptable. >> some protesters say that the police didn't actually let them exercise their right to protest. at least one person has been charged with assault. violence as i mentioned at the top continues to escalate in the city according to local reports, at least eight people were wounded in separate shootings last night. so far this week, they have been ready to shootings. 59 injured. >> neil: just incredible. thank you very, very much. you heard that bite there from the mayor talk about terry monahan. chief terry monahan is the nypd chief of department. and this is his first chat tv chat since all of these attacks. chief, it is very good to have you. how are you feeling? >> i am feeling fine, neil. i have a few bruises here and
there. luckily, the fingers were not broken. i'm doing a lot better than my sergeant and lieutenant that was attacked. >> neil: yeah, i was going to ask about them. you look pretty banged up yourself there. the irony was this was an event that was supposed to be support of the police department. trying to get the public protected and looked after. and that all of a sudden devolved into this. what happened? >> the peaceful protests, the clergy was coming across. there was a group of anarchists that wanted to prevent them from having their march. so a group had jumped on the brooklyn bridge roadway to block them on the brooklyn side. arrests were being made over there. i was walking across the roadway tried to get to where that was happening with a couple of my personnel when a group jumped onto the walkway. and one individual jumped on to
where we were and came running directly up towards and immediately started cursing us out. we ordered him off the road bed. he wasn't leaving peered we went to make an arrest. as we were arresting him, he grabs onto a railing by the walkway and the struggle begins. the fighting starts. that is when the individual comes up with the cane and hits my lieutenant in the head and cuts them open. it gets my sergeant in the head and causes him to get eight staples in his head. we were able to remove that individual away from the walkway. as i went back to identify the person who hit him with a cane, our bike patrol was coming. the person who hit with a cane was able to jump over into opposing traffic and get away. another individual took a mop handle and charge the guys on the bike. knocking them down. he ends up on top of one of our lieutenants from the bike unit and literally went to town on him and started beating the heck
out of him right and left. swings to the face. it was at that point myself in my lieutenant was already bleeding from his head and reached over to pull him off that lieutenant, the struggle continues with the other cops on the bridge. punches getting thrown. he breaks free from them. he gets into a boxing stance to keep going. that is when i reach over it. i grabbed him. i was able to pull him back towards the fence. he turns on me and throws a couple of punches in my direction. the rest of the cops were able to grab him and cuff him and he was arrested for assault on the officer. the bike lieutenant it up breaking a bone. >> neil: this was only a few days after some guy out of nowhere gets to do a fight with an officer, puts him in a headlock, a choke hold, really. if it were reversed, that officer would have been fired
and probably sitting in a jail sale. what's going on in new york? >> there is a lot of animosity toward the police. we are feeling it not just in the protests. when thes and arcus take over oe street. they don't have to listen to the police. and they are willing to fight the police officers. it is something that our men and women have to deal with every single day. going out to a call, whatever the call for service may be. we have them going out. we try to get them go out to back one another up. it's something we are going to have to get control over. >> neil: right now, protesters are demanding more money be taken away from the police department, chief. already, mayor bill de blasio is looking to trim at least a billion dollars from a bunch of i believe a tad more than
6 million. many of your fellow officers are saying, he doesn't have our backs. do you think mayor bill de blasio has your back? >> i have talked with the mayor for years. he has been a supporter. he has helped us at times. there are always issues going back to the beginning with the mayor. but he has been supportive to us. we have asked for things to get done. he has given it to us. these are tough times that we are going through right now. it is a lot more than the mayor. it is city council is strongly, strongly opposed to us. they seem to be the biggest voice right now in defining and taking away from us. they are the biggest ones right now telling us how they don't want quality of life and for certain neighborhoods.
i've got my directly from some city council members. that is one of the issues that we are dealing with. we need to go out through the entire city at and stand up and say that they support our poli police. >> neil: but we are not seen that, chief. i'm not trying to put you in a corner. hundreds of you men and women who are nearing retirement age -- they don't have to retire, but they are. they want to because they are sick of it. i have an officer not too long ago saying i don't want my kids to become a cop. i just don't think it's worth it. and crime goes up, double triple digits, homicide, 116% throughout all of this. how do you get a handle on that? >> building up the morale of our cops. understanding right now morale has probably been as low at this been in a long time. it is important that we as an agency tell them how much we appreciate them, how much we know they are out there, the
trouble they are dealing with on the street. more importantly, the silent majority is out there. the community that is out there that supports our police officers, that know their job they do. they know the times they ran into a building building to save a life. they know that times they've saved the life of a choking baby, of a cardiac victim, how often they run into gunfire to save people. these are the men and women that you are hearing others put down on a regular basis. these are the heroes of 9/1 9/11 these are the men and women who made new york the safest big city. only months ago, we had that without a problem. we made reforms in this agency after 2014. we accomplished the men and women accomplish things that no one thought was possible. last summons, less stops, crime went down and more importantly, violent crime had gone down to historic lows.
these are the men and women that are going to be out there. and they're gonna turn the city around and they are going to turn around with the people, the good people of new york that know and appreciate them. >> neil: you know, chief. you are banged up pretty badly yourself. i talked to democrats and republicans who worked in various administrations that sing your praises. in your may be most quiet moments, have you ever thought to yourself, the hill with this? i don't need this? >> i love this job. i've been doing it for 39 years. i got banged up as a rookie back in the '80s. i got banged up in the '90s. i'm getting a little bit old for it. my body does not recover quite as fast. i love this city. i love the people of this city. i love that men and women who do this job. it is amazing. i have been coming close to
starting my fifth decade. to see the young officers out there, they are the ones that are going to be leading this agency. 175 years in existence. >> neil: keep at it chief. keep at it. you are a good man and a strong man. more after this. usaa is made for what's next we're helping members catch up by spreading any missed usaa insurance payments over the next twelve months so they can keep more cash in your pockets for when it matters most find out more at usaa.com for when it ♪atters most the calming scent of lavender by downy infusions calm. laundry isn't done until it's done with downy.
>> neil: not only wear it, but we demanded. masks that are required for end or even some public places all the rage among more and more states including california new jersey, texas, alabama, arkansas, louisiana, and they saiat least adozen others. a number of companies better than two dozen by last count i was saying the same. it all started with walmart,
kroger, sam's club, a host of others that are saying when you come in here, no matter what the rules are in the given state, you wear a mask. let's get the read of all of this and the university of washington chief strategy officer for population health and much, much more. professor, what do you think about this? the companies now take things into their own hands, walmart chief among them. no matter what state we are in, you wear a mask when you coming here to shop. what do you think? >> that is the decision and i like it. masks will save lives and will save our economy. projection so that we have between now and november 1st, about 85,000 deaths. we can save 40,000 deaths. that's about half of them by 95% of us wearing our masks when we are outside our homes. >> neil: i noticed the cdc looks like the same, doctor.
how reliable is that? a lot of people would say in states where it isn't as big of a problem, you don't have to do that, you shouldn't have to do that. and they don't like the strong arm of the law or i guess the company telling them that they must. what do you say to them? >> change of behavior is difficult and takes some time. we know that. we have to be very patient. not shaming everybody, but show them it's working. they are wearing masks in hong kong, japan. they have been able to open their economy and reduce the burden of covid-19. >> doctor, what do you make of the spikes in cases we have seen? are they within their range you would think -- i also look at hospitalizations and death rat rates. states like south carolina and florida, they are both running at a much higher-than-expected clip. i'm just wondering, if it is
distorted, that is the number of cases by this year increase in testing. what do you think? >> the percent positive is remaining high in many places. the fact that we have more cases right now means that the viruses are circulating and not being very careful. it's not surprising to see the rise in places. for example, texas and california where people are letting down their guard and getting out without wearing a mask and each other. what's good about this is that we have seen in places where the infection and hospitalizations are increasing, more people are wearing masks. we are seeing less mobility in this area. >> neil: good catching up with you. i always learn a lot, my friend. thank you for your help in calming perspective on this.
