with less than two months to go until election day. good morning, happy labor day, sandra smith is off, happy to see you. >> happy to work with you for the first time. president trump and joe biden are turning their focus to pennsylvania this week where the real clear politics average shows him leading by four points. the former vice president will travel to harrisburg and the two sides not holding back as we enter the final stretch of the 2020 race. >> every time i see biden speak he says delaware, delaware, he never leaves. i'm all over the country. and then when i watched before getting asked questions that are really meant for a child to answer, anybody could answer, and i look at the level of questions that you people ask. honestly it's disgraceful. >> donald trump is not fit to be

6:03 am
trust donald trump and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he's talking about. >> trump won wisconsin and 25 i, 5% are undecided. she will campaign and milwaukee where the party canceled their convention less than a month ago and mike pence will be on the border where the campaign is trying to turn red. minnesota, joe biden is going to be an pennsylvania hoping to hold the lead in there, but these are places the trump campaign and says they're doing better than it looks. >> you know we always discount public polling because they oversample democrats and under sample republicans. our internals for a long time

6:04 am
and eve are today show that in the 17 battleground states, the president is very strong either tied or ahead of joe biden. >> the center of attention as wisconsin and a real challenge for kamala harris and mike pence is going to be breaking through the local story in wisconsin today, and that is the milwaukee bucks being one game away from the eastern conference finals. >> beat my miami heat in overtime last night. peter doocy. thank you. >> let's bring in byron york, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner" at a fox news contributor. always great to have your expertise. let's talk about the trump campaign and then we will move on to biden. do you believe the trump campaign has done enough to resecure pennsylvania? >> they will do a lot more. the president was in pennsylvania a few days ago an
6:05 am
end then in late august as well. back in 2016 donald trump's path to victory was fairly simple, he had to win all of mitt romney states and then he had to win florida, ohio, and pennsylvania. he did that and then he threw in michigan and wisconsin for good measure. right now it looks like all of those states are now becoming the same important states again in 2020. >> julie: should the president be out in the campaign trail where workers are obviously looking for the candidate that's going to most support the blue-collar voters, especially today on labor day? >> joe biden is they are today. he has a huge amount of labor union. biden is there. joe biden is a native son and pennsylvania. he was born and some of his early life and scranton. this race is actually close as
6:06 am
it's tightening and pennsylvania and other states. over the summer biden had an 8.5 percentage point lead in the real clear politics add, today it's less than half of that, 4.2%. look at florida, is 1.8%. north carolina is a fraction of what it was. a lot of these key states, michigan, wisconsin, pennsylvania, the race has gotten tighter. >> julie: blue-collar voters is where biden does really need to advance. he seems to be flipping a bit in that category. the american federation of labor and industrial organizations, the largest federation in the united states. together it represents 12 million active and retired workers. how important is this meeting for biden to connect with blue-collar voters, specifically these union leaders that say
6:07 am
there are thousands of employees and voters and workers that are at risk? >> look, it's a huge part of biden's campaign, not just for the votes, unions and the private sector or nothing with what they were a generation ago or two generations ago when joe biden was starting and politics. on the other hand he does have strong reports. by the way, the unions, police unions which are supporting president trump for obvious reasons. >> julie: you have union leaders, lawmakers, fossil fuels obviously carry a network of jobs, training, trade construction. that is where these voters are headed. they're looking for a leader that's going to protect them. a lot of these leaders say that joe biden's energy platforms threatens the jobs of thousands of blue-collar workers. could his acceptance of the
6:08 am
progressive energy and climate policy risk alienate all those workers that he needs to carry pennsylvania in the election? >> absolutely. and the obama-biden administration, a lot of progressive policy people made no secret out of their desire to destroy the coal industry. donald trump's 2016 campaign platform on that was, i'm going to promote you, i want coal to be alive. i wanted to be a real industry in the united states. and that dynamic is still in play today. you have workers who feel that one candidate wants to destroy their way of life and the other wants to preserve it. it's pretty clear which way they're going to go. >> the international union of engineer is worried. they say it's 8,000 members are in jeopardy. they say, "it's going to be difficult to support or endure
6:09 am
joe biden with the position he seems to be leaning towards when it comes to energy." that's the business manager quote there. code biden may be be going down the same road as hillary clinton and 2016, which as you remember, many people believe ws a big reason for her loss? >> absolutely. there were two reasons for her losses in and slovenia and michigan, and in wisconsin. one was that she did not connect. she could not connect with the white working-class voters. the other was that she failed to match barack obama's appeal and democratic strongholds and pennsylvania, detroit, and milwaukee. biden will have to do both of those things. he will have to match the obama performance and those places and he will have to draw those white working-class voters who were very attracted to trump. we just saw an article by the
6:10 am
way, very liberal magazine, "the nation" and it talks about how president trump talks about jobs all the time and joe biden does not talk about jobs. that's a hughe huge issue. >> julie: appreciate you coming on. blake? >> blake: of the former fbi agent peter strzok is now speaking out, coming to the defense of his former employer. what he is saying about the flaws and the bureaus of original investigation with the ties to russia. plus, the president setting his sights on a new target, senator kamala harris, portraying her as a threat to the working class. is this the way to win over swing voters? we will get into it next. >> there is no question that donald trump has been an abject failure and incompetent when it comes to addressing the severe job loss that has happened as a result of the pandemic. ♪ to severe psoriasis,

6:15 am
about 1,000 cases, to ten have seen one suspect arrested. nypd officials have said the normal rates are about 30-33%, they blame the low arrest rate on reform, the covid-19 pandemic, and an increased scrutiny of police parents >> julie: portland and rochester, demonstrations gave way to violence and multiple arrests and both cities. and rochester more than 1,000 people came out for a fifth day of protests over the death of daniel while the mayor and police chief promised police reform. mike tobin is live with more. what have you seen from demonstrators. >> we saw they passed the milestone of 100 straight days of protests. they were not peaceful. one of the demonstrators caught fire from one of the incendiary devices used in the crowd.
6:16 am
that was saturday night. the molotov cocktails appeared around 9:00 p.m. and then law enforcement declared a riot. they showed up with shields and protective gear, police officers were hit with rocks. one officer was injured when he was hit with a firework that burned through his glove and entered her's to make his hand. two of them had knives, 150 calls for service were unanswered because police were busy with protests. for a fifth night demonstrators marched and rochester, new york. more than a thousand people showed up. injuries to both protesters and police. they were ignited when daniel prude died in police custody after police put a hood over his head to prevent him from spreading. the kentucky derby around without fans and the stands, there were crowds in the streets. demonstrators continue to march in protest of the death of breonna taylor, she was shot and killed when they had a one for her boyfriend's apartment.
6:17 am
they were met with counter demonstrators. a man who was shot by a kenosha police officer spoke from his hospital bed, jacob blake says he has staples and his stomach and back, he's him in 24 hours a day. >> i'm telling you, change lives out there, we can stick together, make some money, make everything easier for people out here. this is so much time that's been wasted. >> blake: there were demonstrations in chicago, the demonstrators outnumbered those. >> julie: mike tobin, thank you. >> blake: the trump campaign is setting its sights on a senator kamala harris. after months of slamming the former vice president joe biden on his 47 year record and politics, he is hitting his running mate. betraying her as an extreme california liberal who would hurt working-class voters. bent on a niche, the senior
6:18 am
editor of "the federalist." hi peered >> good to be with you. i guess this makes sense, 57 days until election day, you either go after biden or harris. started there. >> i think the trump campaign is acknowledging the very thing you can't say which is come expecting the presidency, expecting kamala harris pro codependency, a situation where she is going to be running the show when it comes to these policies. i think with what we have in terms of a record from her. >> blake: what you mean by that? >> people understand that this is not a decision that indicates that joe biden is going to be the person driving all the policy decisions. i think kamala harris is the kind of person you pick who was a very ambitious person. she's going to push biden to the side on these decisions that are going to be made, it's only
6:19 am
given. and her case in particular, that should concern a lot of people. she has the second most voting record that you can find in the senate, and her 10-year. that's not some partisan measure, that's the thing that is used by all sorts of academics, the measure that is used to analyze votes, the second most leftist voting record in the senate. she's also someone wh who is notoriously anti-bipartisan in terms of her record that something that the leader center at georgetown found as well. these are not measures that are put up by the g.o.p. or by some conservative group, other measures that indicate how far left she truly is. >> blake: here's how the trump campaign is trying to frame her, "kamala harris is a california liberal who has defined herself as a radical democrat with her support of the green new deal, socialized medicine, fracking bands, tax raises, and tax funded abortions." there is a lot in there. do think that's the way the
6:20 am
trump campaign should go? >> i think there is one aspect in that that deserves more attention, kamala harris has one of the most antireligious, anti-catholic records you can find. she said that obviously a member of the knights of columbus should not be able to be on any kind of court. that's a membership organization through the catholic church that obviously jfk belong to. it's a extreme position to have. she was criticized by her own party. you will continue to see that issue put forward. nobody really thinks that joe biden is a radical, but they do believe and it's accurate to say that he's too weak to stand up to the members of his own party who want to put the country in a radical direction. >> blake: if you were to be president he would be the president and he would set policy for that party, no? >> you have more faith in that than i do. i don't think that joe biden is the person who directs the
6:21 am
situation on the democratic side and to call him the leader of the party is an accurate. the party is being led by a radical leftist agenda. i don't even think that nancy pelosi directs her own conference in terms of the votes she's had to take. she is notoriously opposed to impeachment, something that ended up dominating what democrats did. and i think this is an indication that a new generation of leaders is taking over the party and that they do represent a more radical vision of the future, including kamala harris. >> blake: we will see kamala harris out on the trail and wisconsin, she's meeting with the international brotherhood of electrical workers and then speaking to black business owners. the latest polling in milwaukee, not good for president trump. joe biden is up by 4 in that state according to the latest fox news poll, joe biden is up by 8. what do you make of wisconsin and what you think we see of
6:22 am
harris today? >> i don't think that senator kamala harris is going to have a very warm welcome. joe biden didn't get one. while i do respect of the polling evidence there, i think the trump campaign has its mind on turning out a lot of white working-class voters, people who are difficult to pull, these are the same numbers we saw last time around. i expect we will see a similar result in 2020. >> blake: we have to leave it there. good to speak with you. have a good one today. >> julie: a longtime critic of joe biden says she's voting for him for president. three decades ago anita hill testified before the senate committee considering the nomination of her former boss clarence thomas to the supreme court. women's groups were outraged about the way the committee dismissed her claim of sexual harassment. joe biden was the chairman. he will tell cnn, she is now with biden regardless.
6:23 am
>> who would you like to see elected? >> i think joe biden is the person. >> would you be willing to work with him? >> yes. my commitment is to finding solutions. i'm more than willing to work with him. >> last year biden said that he had wished that he could have done a more to get hill the hearing she deserved. speak to the u.s. navy is searching for a sailor who won missing from an aircraft carrier, coming up details on that rescue mission plus, wildfires multiplying in california during a record heat wave out there. as we learn the cause of one destructive fire that has grown by the thousands of acres. >> it's been a mess.

biden's lead is slipping between july and september where he led trump 48-43. both candidates taking up in august but that in august of biden's lips while the president is about 46%. what do you think is going on in florida? >> i think you will continue to see polls fluctuate and we will continue to see the race tighten. we've always believed that this is going to be a close race and that is why the dnc and the biden campaign haven't been investing in these battleground states. the dnc actually put organizers there months ago even in the middle of the primary to make sure that we're reaching out to voters and talking to them, especially latino voters. one thing i want to point out is that even in a place like florida we have did focus groups they are and we had the top three issues among latino vote voters, covid, the economy, and health care. one of the things that we continue to hear down there is
6:43 am
exactly -- especially latino families are worried about the administration handling of the virus. specifically about that and their kids back to school, that there is no plan to get them out of this virus, and especially in a place like florida where you continue to see cases at an all-time high. i think that right now what latino voters and now that it is labor day everyone talks about how labor day is the kickoff to the sprint election, but we will see these polls tighten. that is why we made historic investments in places like florida and now have the largest latino outreach program in the history of florida. >> julie: it's interesting you mentioned the three top among latino voters, i noticed you didn't mention one and that is legal has been asked in this country are concerned about immigration. they don't want illegals to come into this country and skip ahead and they want them to do it legally, the way many of them
6:44 am
did. that is how they got to be citizenship. there are many legal hispanics in this country that want to look to a leader who will be tough on immigration. i believe that is the reason why joe biden perhaps might be failing a bit when it comes to resonating with those legal latino voters who don't want to see a president let the immigration crisis in this country fall by the wayside. is that an issue? >> what they want specifically is a plan and they want a plan so that you get a pass to citizenship. what they want is comprehensive reform. what they believe is that daka or cyprian's and we should have daka and you should give them a path to legalization. right now all across the country, they understand is the administration continues to divide us. they understand what donald trump is doing. they see the photos of children being separated from their families. latino voters don't agree with
6:45 am
that. they don't agree with donald trump continuing to divide our country. they don't like this. what they want is they want a leader who can actually have a plan, work with congress, work to get comprehensive immigration reform. make sure we are providing legalization. that is what latino voters want to. they also want someone who will look out for them. unemployment is in double digits and you continue to see this pandemic impact voters by 20%. >> julie: the latino civil rights and i want to quote from the president of the civil rights group, "the campaign needs to reach out to latinos directly and specifically and ask for their votes. we haven't seen enough of that yet." what would you say to that? >> we will continue to ask for their votes and i respectfully disagree because i think that we
6:46 am
are arguing that currently. you see especially in a place like florida where we have expanded our team. one thing that is significant is when the biden campaign made their election, they invested in not only spanish language media, but latinos also watch tv and english. my parents are latino and there watching new shows. we need to make sure that were reaching out to all families whether it's in english, spanish, bilingual, and to the biden campaign is doing that. especially if you set kamala harris, she did a virtual event and she was focusing on the latino small businesses. we will continue to do outreach like that. >> julie: thank you so much. we appreciate you coming on. >> blake: fox news alert, the president announcing on twitter that he will be holding a press conference today at 1:00 p.m. originally there was nothing on his schedule. the vice president out campaigning, the president,

7:19 am
that's normally what goes on. there is no issue whatsoever here. the only people who are conflating universal mail in voting, 100% voting where you get a ballot, everybody is there, we know voter rolls are notoriously filled with errors. absentee voting is the media. they're allowing for the two to be conflated time and again. there is a big difference between, the president who votes by absentee, he can't be home on election day. he submits a request for a ballot and he receives it, signs it and submits his vote. that is very different with what democrats are trying to do in nevada which is sending out live ballots to universal voting rolls to people who may not be active voters become a people who may have moved or died. you're putting -- that's roger lehr, you're putting a ballot out to everybody and that means if they're not there, someone could grab that ballot. that's an issue and that's what were talking about here.
7:20 am
that's what democrats are trying to do. chaos and to the election system to upend it before election day. >> julie: mccarthy has a point, if there is one demographic that is fearful it is the seniors. there are the most at risk for covid-19. with the president sending out a message that you should not go into your postal office and that you should not be mailing in your vote, you should go in person and those seniors would be president trump voters, that could possibly scare away older voters who might support the president? with that in mind, is there a different message that the president should get out there for exactly those voters, the seniors? >> the president by no means has had that people should not vote absentee, to request a ballot, to put a ballot into the mail. what he is saying is what democrats are trying to do with upending the election system,
7:21 am
it's frie ripe for fraud and ch. if you are in that section of the country, absolutely, requester absentee ballot and submit it early. make sure your vote has been counted. the president has had clear, he wants to make sure people can vote safely and do so. >> julie: i'm going to switch gears by this article by the atlantic. here's the headline, "trump, americans who die in war are losers and suckers." he has repeatedly and this is what the article is stating and i'm quoting, "for sparing the intelligence of service members and asked that women veterans be kept out of parades." i want your reaction to the article. the president has said that it's completely false and that he has never defended the military more, he can defend the more.
7:22 am
could this hurt his campaign? >> this is why the president is so fiercely a critic of the media because you see four anonymous sources go out there and not be willing to put their names to absolutely disgusting allegations against the commander in chief of the united states. there is no bigger defender, not only of our active military, but our veterans than president trump. not only in words but in action. he rebuilt the united states military, he has reformed the veterans administration, he is allowing them to get better care than ever before. there are 14 people on the record with eight of them at least with first-hand knowledge to refute these claims, to refute this story. the atlantic should be ashamed of itself. there is no better champion for america's veterans than president trump. p1 i that actions do speak louder than words and you point out a good point, the president has done a tremendous job in helping troops get out of afghanistan
7:23 am
and fighting crimes overseas, but let's talk about those words. this is in the first time that he's been accused of disrespecting war heroes. when he attacked john mccain. "he's not a war hero, he was a war hero because he was captured. i like people who weren't captured." john mccain is not the only war hero and i will emphasize the word hero because he was one. he gave his life and he was physically abused and permanently scar and physically find that capture appeared to not recognize as a war hero, is that not a slap in the face to all of those veterans who either died in captivity or managed to escape with their lives after being tortured for years? i believe those comments sort of are coming back to those that were extremely offended by his comments about john mccain. >> did you see the president bring united states capitol to have flags flown at half-staff
7:24 am
across the country? look at what this president has done, not only for senator mccain to honor his legacy but all veterans. this is a man who loves the troops more than any other president ever has and it's very offensive that anybody would dare say such disparaging words about this president and his love of the troops. videos exist of this president hugging veterans, meeting with families at arlington, look at what this president does, he fights for our troops. let's remember how the fake news is out there saying the president was out golfing when he shows up at thanksgiving dinner with our troops. this is more fake news and we need to understand that the president of the united states is commander in chief, there is no stronger ally fighting force in this country for our veterans and our active duty military then president donald j. trump. >> julie: thank you. >> blake: a coronavirus warning on this labor day as

president obama and ceo of 32 advisors, he is also a fox news contributor. good to see you as always. i think we got you plugged in. we will get to the economic stuff and a second, but first those comments by the vice presidential nominee. what do you of them? >> i think what she is saying is just the facts. the g.o.p. senate led foreign intelligence committee has already said that russia meddled in the 2016 to the benefit of donald trump and the detriment of hillary clinton. the national security advisor has recently said that russia is trying to metal again. we are also now hearing about china. >> blake: just to stop you there, the security center has said of russia is using a range of measures to denigrate biden. go on. i wanted to clarify that. >> that's part of the national

or below, it's going down. the question really is, is this working for working families and the answer is no. >> blake: a k shape recovery, those of the top have kept their jobs and have done well and a rising stock market, but those at the lower income levels have lost their jobs or been furloughed and haven't made as much money this year as they have in years past. is that part of the argument? >> what is interesting is not only economists are saying it, the chamber of commerce said it. i wrote a piece on this last week to many of the people i advise. it's clear that we do have a k shape recovery. we have the haves and have-nots. we have 10.6 million jobs, but we've lost 22 plus million. 87% of those in the stock market are the top 10%.

all, 3.4 million people have left the workforce permanently, 5 million jobs have been lost, 24 million people are actually working less were not working at all. let's just be clear, june was 4.8 million, july was 1.7, august was 1.4, this recovery is slowing. it's not a v shape, it's the opposite. i would say that i hope we have a great recovery, i hope we have unemployment under 5% and i hope we have 20 million new jobs, but the data does not tell you that today. >> blake: i think everyone hopes that. especially on labor day. robert wolf, good to talk to y you. >> julie: protests are turning violent yet again across the country this weekend. portland police declaring a riot, but the question is this, where are they coming from? we will try to answer that. scientist shocked and confused by a new discovery on the moon.

thank you. >> blake: even though some polls show the race tightening, president trump still lags behind joe biden. the latest real clear politics average polling average shows the president trails the former vice president by roughly seven points. the president also behind and real clear politics battleground state polling average by a few points there. an article in "the new york times" sums it up this way, and their words, "no president has entered labor day weekend, the kickoff of the fall campaign as such a clear underdog since george bush and 1992, still the president's surprise win in 2016 weighs heavily in the thinking of nervous democrats and hopeful republicans alike." making it real clear politics let's bring international correspondent. we normally do this in person, good to see you. happy labor day. i think you can throw the national polls away because you
8:20 am
look at the state average that you guys have, it's a few points when you talk of the six or so most important states. the trump campaign communications director was asked about their internal numbers over the weekend and i want to get your reaction after this. >> our internals for a long time and even today show that any 17 battleground states that we survey, the president is very strong, tied or ahead of joe biden. president trump has made an enormous inroads among black and latino voters. in 2016 the exit polls show the president got a percent of the black vote, some of these public polls show the president getting in the mid-20s. >> blake: do think the president is tied or leading in all 17 battleground state? >> i think, i'm not surprised to see the trump campaign be very bullish about their internal polling. this is something the campaign always seems to do. i'm glad that you joined both
8:21 am
"the new york times" headline with ercp polling because history is a very good guide, but history does retire context. it's true that president trump is going into this reelection very similar to president bush, but the context is important. the context is that while trump is underwater and an underdog he's had to combat this pandemic. he's behind joe biden by seven points, but if you look at those six battleground states that we have pulled and that average, it shows a rather narrow race. i think that democrats, unlike in 2016, they're not taking anything for granted. >> blake: polls are snapshots in time and as you say the battleground states are narrowing so as we go closer or get closer to election day, to think they still continue to narrow? because that certainly the hope of the trump campaign. this remind me of a conversation
8:22 am
i had with minority whip steve scalise, i think it was in may or june. his argument was, the reason why the president at that time had not narrowed, got closer to joe biden was because at that point the race really was between us, not just the president and the democratic nominee, but against the coronavirus as well. there had not been as much of a contrast. his theory of the case is that after these conventions you can have a one-on-one comparison between the two camps and the comparison of the trump campaign wants to push right now, they want to push the comparison on the issue of violence and rioting and looting. >> blake: before we go, kamala harris will be on the campaign trail today for the first time and we see joe biden starting to get out on the trail again. does that move things in his direction or is this built in as a very unusual election year? >> it's very unusual because it's been so virtual but
8:23 am
something i've been impressed by by both campaigns to be quite honest is that their retail politics have not suffered considering the challenging circumstances that we've just had. maybe those two conventions, those infomercials didn't move the needle too much, but what we saw and that preprogramming was two candidates who did their best to be empathetic and actually interact with voters. i think biden and harris do a very good job working the rope lines. obviously it's going to be socially distance, but i think it will lean into that advantage as they come down the stretch. >> blake: see you tomorrow, enjoy the rest of your day. >> julie: the senate's top democrat chuck schumer now calling for an investigation into the postmaster general after five former employees say that he pressured them to support g.o.p. causes. they say he even reimbursed them with company funds for donating

8:32 am
they say china has roughly two had nuclear warheads. the u.s. military has 3800. for context when it comes to the larger navy they say the warships, they're far more powerful than china's, but at a time when the national defense strategy calls for a shift to great power competition, it's clear from this report that china's military has grown in the past year and size and its abilities. >> blake: jennifer griffin, thank you. >> julie: more on this now with chairman of the institute for the study of war and fox news strategic analysis to. always great to see you. jennifer's report is alarming. china is growing. new drones, fifth generation fights, reconfiguration planes and defenses obviously making even deadlier. you agree with the pentagon's assessment that the chinese air force is becoming a massive
8:33 am
