what's your batting average across the season, what's the batting average across the years, bottom line is president obama really wasn't a big leaguer, mr. trump's is about 2.08%, a heck of a lot better. >> let's put up the numbers for second quarter gdp, that's up from 2.2% in the first quarter, that said, many on the left are saying these numbers are artificially propped up by tax cuts and too inflated because of the tariffs, a lot of companies selling wears, boosting second quarter at detriment to third and forty quarter, how do you respond to that? >> it will come 3, critics are overly pessimistic. hard reality. 3% growth is pretty darn good,
as for tariffs, chinese are clamping down on exports through administrative means in anticipation of what president trump might do i mean, that's a bogus argument. we had expert number. that's not going to repeat, they never do but we will have other areas that do very well in third quarter, nonsense. bottom line is the left has a data problem, they gave us eight years oflet -- lethargy and now we are growing again. jillian: let's take a listen. >> we can only project a couple of years in the future but we are well on the path for several years, i don't think this is a one or two-year phenomena, we are in a period of 4 to 5%, 4 or 5 years of us taken 3% growth at least. jillian: look into your crystal ball do you see the growth as
reality? >> i see it 3%, i don't see it 4 or 5. i will point out that 3% growth is dramatically different than president obama, the consequences for state and local tax revenues, municipalities, ability to finance social security are so profound with the economy growing at 3% i know it sounds small but, you know, this is like soccer, you know, it comes one goal at a time, what matters is you win 3 to 2, this is a profound difference, i'm optimistic, but mr. sneech tends to speak in hyperbole even though he seems reserved, if you read the words, he tends to make things bigger than we should. jillian: i'm justifying using how many sports andies that we would have. >> i'm a baseball fan. i'm sorry, but you know i remember willy and nicky mantle,

robust family friend programming. well, some folks are suspicious, guys, let's take a look at the tweet, evelyn says why, they lost a lot of viewers after they let obama produce shows. a lot of people think it's a good idea, so maybe some more viewers on netflix over the whole thing. >> taylor swift doing taylor swift type things again? >> carley: a very sweet gesture to donate tickets who are mourning the death of police officer, many viewers remember he was shot and killed with his own gun on july 15th, mayor in massachusetts says taylor swift quietly donated, she didn't want no one to know this, fire fight ergs and police officers to her

campaign. jillian: garrett tenney on russia investigation. >> last week the fbi released more than 400 pages of previously classified documents related to applications for surveillance called fisa warrants, most of the documents were redacted particularly section detailing why carter page was russian agent, those that were not redacted showed the steele dossier, democrat-funded opposition research was major component for justification of the warrants. democrats argue the redacted sections show there was much more evidence, house intelligence chairman devin nunes says he documents wants declassify show the fbi and the justice department acted improperly. >> the reality is that's not the case.
those of us who have been providing oversight over this issue, we are quite confident once the american people see the 20 pages, at least for those that will get real reporting on this issue, they will be shocked by what's in that fisa application. >> the white house says that at least for now, president trump does not plan to get involved in this specific request to declassify documents but today devin nunes said his understanding that the white house lawyers are looking into it to see if they can declassify sooner rather than later. in washington, i'm garrett tenney, fox news. >> the trump administration cracking down on spending as congress faces september deadline to fund the government. president trump's economic larry kudlow sounding on the timeline for corporate tax rate to be paid off. >> we will be tougher and tougher on spending. i reckon it'll take us a year or 18 months to start turning that around. it's not unusual.

i have about more years. jillian. jillian: the battle for border security is heating up after president trump sends this blistering warning to congress, quote, i would be willing to shut down the government if the democrats do not give us the votes for border security which includes the wall, so where does the border wall battle go from here? joining me to debate gop councilman borelli and democratic strategists rochelle, what do you make of the messaging? >> this is another attempt by the master of distraction to take attention away from the fact that he as a bromance with putin, questionable meetings at trump towers and the fact that he was covering it all up. what president tweet that is he would love to see the government shut downs, why would president want to see federal employees struggling make ends meet, put food on the table, pay bills and send kids to school, we are
talking around september, around the time kids will be buying school supplies and it's unfortunate because it's him throwing a tantrum over a wall that he said méxico will pay for. jillian: in fairness, joe, i want to take your take, something the president has been fighting for, not sure if it's something bringing up right now to distract from putin. >> this isn't out of the blue and it's not the first time to threaten to shut down government over border wall. government shutdowns are used by political footballs by both parties to get name calling and not many people remember the schumer shutdown in january this year, but the reality is what voters will remember is the fact that one-third of the electorate believes that immigration reform is the most pressing problem america faces today. the fact that democrats are willing to hold congress from enacting any type of reform is going to play out pretty significantfully the midterms.
jillian: rochelle, say that the government does shut down, let's play the card right now, how do you think this would affect the midterms? >> well, i think it's going to be bad for republicans, you already had congressman johnson of wisconsin come out and say he doesn't think it's a good idea, you also had the rnc chairman say that this should not and will not happen, it's just not a good idea for republicans to do this right before the midterms, i mean, if we want to talk about, you know, government shutdowns, president trump was very critical of president obama in 2013 during that shutdown in which he called obama's, obama weak and saying that he lacked leadership because of government shutdown, so i wond internal revenue if the president feels the same way now that has going to be the second government shutdown in less than two years. >> look, nobody wants government shutdown. nobody is a party of government shutdowns but when you elect a republican congress to the house, you elect to republican senate and republicans to the white house you have an expectation that they do what they say they are going to do
and one of the things is to reform immigration. this is more about the republicans have been a little bit of enthusiasm gap going midterms and this is something that would really drive the base, something they committed to and something i hope they do. jillian: you don't think it would be detrimental in midterms? >> no, just the opposite, show it is base that electing a republican copying will result in republican policy. jillian: when do you guys think, rochelle, i will start with you, when we will get the border wall? >> one, i think the republicans are a little bit out of touch, they are using 20th century solution for 21st century problems. president trump has said that this entire shutdown would be in response to drugs, well, drugs are not coming-during thrown over in sacks into the united states, drug dealers are using modern technology to bring drugs into the united states, i mean n2016 you had border agents
track down, try to attempt to seize a submarine carrying $194 million worth of cocaine. so these policies that they're bringing forth to me aren't realistic in response to the real problem we are facing. jillian: joe, final word. >> the majority of the drugs do come across the southern border. >> but not over the wall. >> through the southern ball. that's near here nor there. >> the issue that funding for the wall has been democratic platform from bill clinton the barack obama and it's only now because of trump that democrats do not want to see seen as compromising that they are willing to abandon their principles -- >> in all honesty, i want to respond to that. >> jillian: a couple of seconds. >> obama deported more immigrants than any president in u.s. history. jillian: we do have to leave it there, it is 38 minutes after the hour. bombshell report revealing the obama administration shell out

military's operations and maintenance budget according to republican chairman of the house armed services committee. >> it says if any operational units are used, secretary mattis has to certify that it will not affect readiness. >> the pentagon's top officer has arriened u.s.-northern command based based in colorado, starting from the revolutionary war and war of 1812 till today and coincide with the 100th anniversary with tend of world war 1. it's not clear how much the parade will cost taxpayers. >> i've seen various cost estimates, 10 million and 30 million depending on the size of the parade. >> the bill tries to try to focus on men and women who have
served and really tailor toward 100th anniversary of world war i but also give an opportunity to honor those veterans who never had a parade. >> the council was concerned roads would be damaged with heavy armaments rolling down pennsylvania avenue, spokes han for the u.s.-northern command say at this time we do not intend to use tanks at parade. jennifer griffin, fox news. >> 46 minutes after the hour, a father pulling off operation glass flipper for his daughter. >> oh, man, lump in your throat time. the story that will sure to bring you a tear to your eye.
