reporter: pulling markets down today, tensions between the u.s. and china. the president signed the hong kong autonomous act that mandates sanctions on people or entities that break the agreement with hong kong. the chinese foreign ministry will make the necessary say response and sanction people and entities in the united states. it is escalation of rhetoric at this point. back in the united states, the family of george floyd is now suingcity of minneapolis as well as four police officers involved in the death of george floyd. the attorneys called the death a civil or public health crisis is how they labeled the death of george floyd in minneapolis. back to you. elizabeth: edward lawrence, thanks so much. president trump really tore into joe biden in the rose garden. critics attacking the president against the protocol using rose garden to attack biden.
6:05 pm
bernie sanders is applauding biden, great for you for adopting my ideas, saying the far left has to elect biden to quote strengthen the far left movement. alexandria ocasio-cortez says the man is to get biden elected so the far left can enact its agenda. watch this. >> that is really, when people say, and ask me, how are you going to pass this or how are you going to pass that, i tell them we got to win the senate and the white house. that is our legislative strategy for getting this stuff passed. elizabeth: democrats crave a knockout punch, a clear statement against the trump era but is that it? is this the path to victory to get independent and moderate voters on the fence in michigan, pennsylvania and wisconsin? welcome back to the show trump 2020 senior advisor mercedes schlapp. always grad to have you back on, mercedes. what are the far left policies that the president is talking about here that he says biden is now taking on? >> i think you're seeing, for
6:06 pm
example, joe biden, cozying it up, embracing the unifying agenda with socialist bernie sanders as a winning political strategy. that includes things like abolish i.c.e. that includes abolishing the death penalty. that includes raising taxes which is the one action that joe biden says he is going to do immediately, we know would increase taxes on over 80% of americans. you're talking about raising corporate taxes. actually raising corporate taxes to 28%. you know in china the corporate tax rate is 25% liz? go down this list, of these far left actions that biden is deciding that this is going to be his platform, his agenda. that means that he is definitely the trojan horse for the left. let's be real. he will be soft on dictators like he will be soft on the cuban communist regime.
6:07 pm
he will be soft on nicolas maduro in venezuela and he is going to line up with china. this is where his head has been. this is where his career has been when you look at his 40 plus years as a career politician. elizabeth: you know, the president, his supporters say he has been pushing hard to get things done in the face of three years in the push to get rid of him, to impeach him, to sue him, to indict him. now attacking him over his covid response and recession that was basically gross suppression. also reaction to protests. the other thing that is going on, critics say biden has been doing scripted tell prompted messages, pretaped, canned interviews, the biden team is doing exactly what the obama team in 2012, studiously keep joe biden hidden and off the campaign trail. what is your reaction to that?
6:08 pm

6:09 pm
be in mount rushmore is a priority. it is critical to get the word out because why? because joe biden refuses to answer the tough questions. joe biden gives these very mini little speeches without having to take the tough questions from reporters. and i think that many in the media have given joe biden a pass. and yeah, they spend most of their time, many of these liberal media outlets just crist sizing and attacking the president for any move that he makes while when you look at the president's policies, they're common sense policies that mainstream americans can agree with, which, that of insuring that we have a prosperous economy and that we put american workers and american families first. elizabeth: mercedes, let's listen to this. let's listen to the president, compare and contrast tear policies. watch this. >> mr. president, please listen to your public health experts instead of denigrating them.

6:11 pm
joe biden, he was in the white house for eight years and now campaigning on stuff that didn't get done when he has been in d.c. for nearly five decade. your reaction? >> you make a great point. the fact that you have seen the weakest economic recovery under a obama-biden administration. you understand economics perfectly well and you know what works to get our economy going and president trump, really it is not about the politics. he knows what policies work. that includes tax cuts that we know benefit the middle class, that includes insuring that our taxes are lower for businesses so they can invest here in america. getting rid of job-killing regulations the president talked about today regarding infrastructure and also renegotiating these trade deals. instead you have joe biden pushing a green energy initiative that would cost trillions of dollars and shut down our energy industry after we've seen president trump focus on building a strong energy

6:19 pm
anything she says. elizabeth: yeah. this is a distraction. democrats talking like this is a distraction away from stopping the root cause. it is ongoing gang violence. these shootings are acts of revenge or score-settling. cortez if she cared about jobs she wouldn't have chased away tens of thousands of jobs amazon would have brought to new york city. your reaction? >> you know what, liz? there is something much bigger. i blame the mayor for emboldening the criminals. i honestly believe at this point, especially today in the aftermath of mayor de blasio signing this law enforcement accountability package, this guy is a marxist trojan horse come into new york city in his last year in office and he is going to completely annihilate the city. he is allowing the criminals to get out of prison. he is bringing them off of rikers. he is not putting anybody in jail for things they have done.
6:20 pm
he is handcuffed the cops, completely handcuffed the cops from doing the job they have to do. as a result, we're seeing systemic slaughter of black men and women in the communities of color. and he is not doing a tamm thing about it. elizabeth: doing things like blaming the coronavirus. it is trying to magic away the double-digit increases in crime. we're seeing shootings going up in new york city and atlanta, in philadelphia, san francisco, chicago. listen to the grandmother who lost her one-year-old baby boy who lost her one-year-old grandson in a stroller in new york city. >> for the cowards that did this, you should be ashamed of yourself because everybody is talking about black lives matter, what about baby lives? what about teenager lives? you took an innocent child from a mother and a father as well as
6:21 pm
the grandparents. i don't think it's fair. you took my son and go to hell. you can go to hell. and excuse my expression but you took something that was precious for me, precious for my son, precious, something precious from his mother and we will never see him come back. he cannot come back. he cannot wake back up. he was a innocent little baby and he is gone forever. elizabeth: commissioner, still no arrests. the video of the suspects now released in the killing of the one-year-old devin gardner. 15,000-dollar reward being offered. you're seeing video right there of the suspects doing the shooting. your reaction to what the grandmother just said? >> i think it is horrible. to listen to her words. i think there are a couple things your viewers have to realize. 15,000, 16,000-dollar reward out
6:22 pm
there is from the police, from the police. that who is doing it. not black lives matter. the black lives matter the organization, they don't care about black lives. they use black lives to promote their political gain. that is what this is about. ask the grandmother if she wants cops in her community. elizabeth: bernie kerik, thanks for joining us, commissioner. come back soon. >> thanks, liz. elizabeth: coming up democrats pushing for mail-in voting pushing back on questions about voter fraud claiming it does not happen. we've got evidence that suggests otherwise. why are democrats ignoring it? that debate next. former california republican party chair, tom vacarro. >> worried about mail-in voting because it is subject to tremendous fraud and being rigged. great for us! but not for your clients. that's why we're a fiduciary,

♪. elizabeth: to the fight over mail-in ballots. we're digging into the footnotes, government documents to find out what is going on. democrats like joe biden, nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, barack obama, they are demanding people, they want them to vote by mail due to fears of covid-19 at ballot box.
6:27 pm
california, oregon, colorado do it. election watchdogs warn that mail-in voting has been long riddled with inaccuracies and fraud. there is fraud in the mail in balloting. the democrat plan would send ballots to 24 million voters with dubious, flawed voter registrations. the public interest legal foundation found since the 2012 election, more than 28 million mail-in ballots somehow went missing. former california republican party chair, tom vacarro. the other problem with democrats push for this, they refuse to admit it, they refuse to do audit of votes. because it is expensive to do so. the argument democrats want votes from fake mail in ballots as critics warn. they don't want audits to catch it. that is what we found in
6:28 pm
government studies, numerous studies are reading. your take on that? >> jimmy carter back in 2005 said mail-in ballots were the biggest potential for fraud. there is two aspects. 24 million mailed in california. there is half a million, up to half a million they think of dead people who will get these ballots. then what happens? here is part two. if california has 16 million votes, that means they have to look at the signatures for 16 million people and measure that against the original registration. they don't have the personnel to do that. they will be under a time crunch. california always waits until the 38th day to verify it. if they don't have the resources to do that, you know what happens, liz? they throw them through and don't check them. that is where the voter fraud will occur because no one win toll them. then when the republicans said you should check it, the democrats will say, too late. we declared a winner. elizabeth: yeah.
6:29 pm
you know the white house opposes this. earlier this month, a family in atlanta got a mail in voter application for the family cat. the family cat had died 12 years ago. here is what else is going on. the biden campaign recruiting army of hundreds of attorneys to prepare for legal fights to push for mail in voting. the heritage foundation, have election fraud database dating back to the 1980s. nearly 1300 proven cases of voter fraud in numerous states, including swing states of pennsylvania, michigan and more. so in florida, 2013, the chief of staff to democrat representative garcia you i can't, sentenced to three months in prison. why? orchestrating a massive plot involving submission of hundreds of fang absentee ballot requests. they want to paper the country with these ballot registrations and don't want watchdogs to catch it. go ahead. >> it doesn't take much to make a huge difference.
6:30 pm
remember the 60th seat in the senate for the democrats, that broke the filibuster, al franken, won by 300 votes and some of that had to do with fraudulent voting. so the margin doesn't need to be in the millions. and they will blanket it where it is needed. as someone who personally watched at a, you know, i have a long history in california. i watched a van go up to a polling station, people get out. look at the list. see who didn't go and vote because california has no i.d. this is real. to those who say it isn't, are lying. they will not get d.a.s in california to prosecute those people, democrat d.a.s prosecuting democrats. you carpet get ahead with that. the real danger they dot mass mailing. they don't have the resources to check on it. they were the election will just be pushed through. this matters in michigan. this matters in pennsylvania and wisconsin where this election will be decided but the
6:31 pm
democrats are just going to claim unfair but the republicans need to have voter integrity projects or they can lose the senate again or important votes when this is stolen. elizabeth: you know attorney general william barr talked to maria bartiromo about massive voting fraud with mail in voting. listen to what he had to say about it. watch this. >> there is questions about whether or not it even denies a secret ballot because a lot of states have you signing the outside envelope, person who opens the envelope will know how people voted there is no, right now a foreign country can print up tens of thousands of counterfeit ballots, would be hard to detect which is the right or wrong ballot. it can upset and undercut the confidence and integrity of the elections.
6:32 pm
elizabeth: that is the thing, tom, it is about integrity of who is doing the mailing and doing the tabulating at the back end, that they have honestty of doing the counting. tom, take that on. >> there are only couple of months to implement this. that is not tough time. california had a pilot project, took two years so at the time this up. rushing this, this election will be tainted regardless. the question, going forward do we have the time and resources. right now i'm unempressed by the efforts by democrats to push this through. elizabeth: tom del beck car row, thanks for coming in. big indictment against the management of "the new york times" from a times editor who quit saying "the times" is dominated by intolerant idealogues who attack, bully, censor people with different opinions. that is what an op-ed page is
6:33 pm
supposed to be about. now this debate, the former "times" editor warning that what's happening now at "the times," it is distorting the coverage and distorting the information conversation and it is misleading americans. that story is next. after my dvt blood clot... i wondered.. could another come around the corner? or could it play out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot. almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. -and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding.
6:34 pm
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily- and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be your moment. ask your doctor about eliquis.

♪. elizabeth: okay. we got new fallout from the scathing indictment of "the new york times" by its opinion editor who quit yesterday. bari weiss says "the times" leadership is caving to a toxic intolerant left-wing culture. liberals who are not liberal at all. they censor and attack those with differences of opinion. that is what an op-ed page is supposed to be about. bari weiss said management stood by, did not defend her, effectively condoned bullying, harrassment not just of her but work colleagues. now there is this, has "new york times" exposed itself to potential lawsuit for
6:38 pm
allowing a hostile work environment, a hostile work environment against moderates an send tivities. christopher bedford what do you think. has claims of hostile work environment, violation of civil rights act of 1964. what do you think? >> explicit, exactly, liz. in her piece worth reading for certain, she said explicitly, these are the problems she was facing. work place harrassment. these are legal problems for "the new york times" if she would decide to bring a lawsuit. my reading of the piece similar to yours, she might bring a lawsuit and she might have similar support in this matter. "new york times" is this a dangerous place. you never warrant the criticism you get from the outside to mirror the criticism from the inside. when those two things combine, it says to you and me that it is true. elizabeth: weiss, looks like she has gotted goods on them. she is jewish.
6:39 pm
"times" staffers called her quote a nazi. there she goes writing about the jews again. this is the about holier than thousand culture at "the new york times," they fingerpoint and attack. everyone else is wrong. when you do name-calling like that, you set aside rational illogical debate, attacking people personally with name-calling. that is just like trying to win an argument by swearing this is happening at media shops across the country, ship. people running the shops are failing the reporters. failing op-ed columnists, attacking them and undermining moderates. your reaction. >> media companies across the country and corpses are seeing it across the country. what is strange about it, cadre of young orthodox leftists, liberal reporters or staff, take over hr departments, start their
6:40 pm
own departments by broken up by gender, blacks at "new york times," black women at "the new york times," for example. these are the breeding grounds across the corporation for kind of complaints and intolerant. maybe older class ral liberal tolerant people that work at corporations and work in the media feel handicapped by stormtroopers at the left. they don't have any tolerance for dissent. they feel like they're afraid to is he back and pure back. the popular book in america is right fragility. the idea if you say you're not racist, you're racist for saying that. there is little way to protect yourself against that. elizabeth: that is pathetic. it is breath-takingly idiotic and pathetic to call people racists they hardly know the person they're attacking. again and again we see vanity and lack of humility of leadership at "new york times,"
6:41 pm
pointing finger at everybody else but we'll be the one that points the finger at them. final word, christopher. >> there was a brief moment when donald trump was elected they had no idea what has gone on in the rest of the country. they have forgotten that moment sadly and gone back to attacking us. elizabeth: that is why she was hired in the first place and now she is gone. christopher, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. elizabeth: the backlash against the nfl and nba. fans are fed up. they are saying stop letting politics mix in with sports. we don't want it. we don't like it. you won't believe what is going on with the nba. this is big money business stuff. it is basically hurting the fan base.

6:49 pm
candidacy -- initiation of his candidacy, he instructed the attorney general to aggressively prosecute those who attack the men and women of law enforcement. also the president signing into law, the law enforcement mental health and wellness act. he is advocated on our behalf on a continuous basis, not only from the oval office but from throughout his administration. another great piece of legislation which was signed into law was the permanent authorization of funds to the 9/11 act. for our first-responders and their family who have suffered tragic loss and continued need for support, also for the support of the project safe neighborhoods, is meant to help reduce violent crime, and president's undying support of

law enforcement officers, especially in these times of need where we are often times made public enemy number one. the president has backed up many of his position of support with to law enforcement by the actions that he has taken. elizabeth: yeah. we have joe biden saying yes to fund some police budgets. the hard left, they're taking on that platform, abolish i.c.e., abolish customs and border protection. stop gang databases run by states. your reaction to that? >> well my reaction to that is that we are going to, if these problems are put into place, it is going to further jeopardize the public who depends upon our services, our protection to insure that they are safe in their communities and in, through the united states. elizabeth: okay. >> if president trump, president trump has advocated not, not so
