1:14 am
heather: welcome back, a fox news alert. an you urgent nationwide search underway for a missing 13-year-old girl after her parents are found dead in their home. authorities believe jamie klaus is in danger. the only word that can be understood in a 911 call is "help." police believe that she was taken by someone with a gun. they don't have any leads on a suspect right now. senator susan collins in her home right now after receiving a threatening letter reported to contain ricin. collins has been threatened over
1:15 am
her support of supreme court justice brett kavanaugh. ricin was sent in the mail addressed to president trump and the pentagon earlier this month. republican candidates across the country are riding the trump train into november hoping that his endorsement will pay off at the polls. are the president's economic successes enough to fend off a so-called blu blue wave? helping break it down is peter maurici. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. heather: a long list of economic successes. is that what republicans need to focus on going toward november? >> well, they couldn't ask for a better economic environment to run for re-election. everything is good, the economy's growing, unemployment is low. inflation is low also. and i think donald trump's got a real point when it comes to china on trade. we could make things better by basically raising the tariffs, going across the board, and also he's got a real complaint with
1:16 am
the fed. there's no reason to push so hard with inflation so low. heather: when you say raise tariffs across the board, that puts fear in some folks. they say that hurts their businesses locally. you have a different view on it. >> there's two things. right now we have anomalies, for example, bicycles they're importing parts from china and paying a tariff on that. bicycles from china don't pay the 10% tariffs. that puts bicycle manufacturers worse off than if nothing happened. across the board eliminates that problem. what good does it do most working americans to be able to buy a toaster at walmart for $20 from china if their wages are only $11 an hour. the imports have closed the factory in their town. it's easy for the folks in new york and the financial sector to say tariffs are no good because we don't import banks from china. and the media is kind of
1:17 am
infiltrated with that. we don't import television show froshows fromshowsshows from ch. middle america, factories are closed, cheap goods don't do much good. heather: your recommended rate is 35% 1234. >> 35%?>> i told the white hous% across the board, after 90 days, go up from there. heather: this one was interesting. the worst run states, one thing they apparently all have in common, they're run by democrats. take a look at this. the most and least fiscally sound states in 2016. these are the most fiscally sound, nebraska, south dakota, tennessee, florida, oklahoma. the least fiscally sound, illinois, connecticut, new jersey, massachusetts and kentucky. and so the least fiscally sound run by democrats. that benefits republicans going into november. >> it's a hard case to make.
1:18 am
you fail as a state, you have to raise taxes down the road. in the near term, they promised new benefits like in new york state. doesn't seem like there's anything the mayor there or the governor there can't roll out, like paid family leave, sick time and all this for every worker, every single worker, no matter who employs them. i was at a conference recently, a private dinner for leading economists around town, there were about 30 of us there and i raised the issue of entitlements that it would soak up the entire budget and one of the liberal economists said peter, i don't believe the government will ever run out of money. they think they can borrow indefinitely. when do you that, you get a city like chicago or even new york. why are the subways so bad in new york? the answer is because mayors have spent every last nickel they can lay their hands on on some form of welfare or terribly
1:19 am
high union wages. there's no money left to take care of new yorkers' basic needs. heather: and taxes. >> huge taxes. you have subways like nigeria. it would take $400 billion to rescue new york subways, to put them on par with paris. they're devoting $80 billion to renovationless. it's absurd. the mayor says let's have a millionaire's tax. heather: thank you so much. we appreciate it, peter. or just play the lottery for tomorrow, how's that? >> i ought to play the lottery so i can retire in florida. heather: you and me both. the time now is 19 minutes after the top of the hour and elizabeth warren, you've got to watch this, finally taking a dna test. >> what do the facts say? >> the facts suggest that you absolutely have native american ancestry in you your pedigree. heather: how that test is backfiring big-time. and love trumps all, how a

heather: comb back to "fox & friends first." 23 minutes after the top of the hour. elizabeth warren's dna test backfires. the cherokee nation denouncing her results, saying they do not prove her native american heritage by any means. todd pyro joins us with more on the fierce backlash and how the democrat keeps firing back at president trump. what is happening? >> this was something else yesterday. following warren's release of a campaign video playing up her latest dna test, the cherokee nation responded in part, quote, using a dna test to lay claims
1:24 am
to any connection to the cherokee nation or any tribal nation is inappropriate and wrong. it makes a mockery out of dna tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens whose ancestors are well documented and heritage is proven. senator warren is undermining tribal interest with continued claims of tribal heritage. that statement came amidst a day of twitter tirades from warren, first posting the boston globe story highlightin highlighting . the globe had to issue a correction to its math, downgrading its results to between 1/64th and 1 /1,024th native american. the article noted the an an sill was baseanalysiswas based on cod
1:25 am
peruvia dna. as for warren's reference to the president's million dollar bet, if dna showed she did have native ancestry, the president said this. >> you mean if she gets the nomination in the debate where i was going to have her tested, i'll only do it if i can test her personally. okay? that will not be something i enjoy doing either. >> even democrats upset with warren's dna debacle. obama's campaign manager mad she made the announcement right before midterms, why can't dems every stay focused. heather. heather: that's a good question. a lot of people at home have things to say about this as well. >> we asked you do warn republican's new claims prove she is only concerned about 2020. most of you seem to agree with that statement. one user on instagram saying it proves she is completely out of

touch with the people and has no idea what is important. patricia asks on twitter, this stuff needs to stop, is she an adult or in first grade? todd on facebook, not me, says if she was, she has nothing to worry about now, implying that any chance she has at 2020 kind of went away. we'll see. heather: the crazy thing is, after the response from cherokee nation, she is still out there tweeting about it. she might drop it at this point. >> she tried to work it back a little bit but it didn't work. heather: yeah, just stop. thank you so much. the time now is 26 minutes after the top of the hour. new poll shows joe biden far beyond the favorite to lead the democrats in 2020. is he really the best they have? two democrats join us to debate it. >> are you willing to commit to share some of that to help other democrats get across the finish line? >> no. heather: well, so much for socialism. why beto o'rourke says he will not share his funds with fellow

democratic 2020 poll. but is bringing back a familiar face really the best democrats can do? joining me to debate is, former ceo of the democratic national committee, joseph o'connell and former obama campaign staffer robin biry. thank you for joining us. let's bring this poll up first and jeff, i'll let you start. 33% favor former vice president joe biden, followed, 13% for senator bernie sanders and we have kamala harris,en tore he'lr elizabeth warren, corey booker and john kerry. a lot of familiar names right there. what do you think about it? >> i don't think it's any surprise that the vice president is leading the pack right now. he has about 100% name i.d. he served the country for 40 years now. he has a way with voters.
1:35 am
i think that it's no surprise that he's at the top of the list right now and i think that's a good thing for democrats. what we know for sure is that there's going to be a robust democratic field in 2020. and maybe vice president biden will run. maybe a whole bunch of other people will run. we've got a lot of senators that are lining up, a lot of women are looking at this, as you mentioned, elizabeth warren, camilla carries, we've got -- kamala harris. we've got a deep ben of. bench. we are a ways out. robin remarks do yo, what do yoe familiar faces, familiar names, does the democratic party need new blood? >?>> great question, he heather. i'm glad to see this. one thing anecdotally. my stepfather who never voted for a democrat in his life, said if biden runs he will absolutely
1:36 am
vote for him because he's that great of a guy in his opinion. i think this is a good thing. we could use new blood. one of the things that always makes our country great is healthy competition, maybe not so much for hillary clinton in 2016, but i think that a robust field really will help us in the long run, heather. heather: you look at this list also, and a lot of these potential candidates have come out very strongly against president trump and trump supporters. some of these names being accused of getting violence on behalf of their consisten const. are those the type of candidates that should be on this list as well? i'm referencing corey booker and kamala harris. >> i think democrats are looking for fighters, someone who can go toe to toe with president trump. i think presidential elections are about the future and, again, we're going to have a big contest with democratic nominees, we're going to have
1:37 am
governors, we're going to have mayors, a lot of people that are running. that's a conversation that's really important to have and voters are going to decide what that looks like as we move into 2020. i agree, we need a lot of voices in the conversation because we have a lot of problems ahead of us. i think whether it's the senators, whether it's the mayors or governors that are running, they're going to go toe to toe with president trump because that's what's required. all these folks are focused on one thing, and that's the midterm elections in three weeks. heather: interesting, though, robin, that senator warren what she did in reference to the dna testing, coming out and announcing yesterday and it has backfired. >> it definitely has. and i'm glad -- i wanted so long for her to take this d envelope na test --dna test. it didn't work in her favor. but i'm glad that we've got a good playing field. i'm glad these guys will be giving him a good argument. nobody can dispute the fact that
1:38 am
donald trump has changed the game. people are looking for fighters, for anyone who is going to come from a position of strength that's changed from the way things used to be years can ago. so honestly, he changed the playing field and we've got to adjust now. heather: that's part of what happened with senator warren. i think she walked right into that. president trump pushed her to do it. she did it. backfired. it will be interesting to see what the next poll he shows after that. >> yes. heather: thank you. appreciate you joining us. >> thank you. heather: the time now is 20 minutes until the top of the hour. robert deany ro deniro has beeng president trump from the start but apparently he's the one offended. >> i'm so offended by this person and by the republicans in general, how they behave. heather: why the actor says that he's the one that deserves to feel salty. if that doesn't leave a bad

1:44 am
much about factory jobs. >> 18,000 jobs were added in the manufacturing industry. as you said, the pace of manufacturing job growth over the past 21 months under president trump, eight times that of president obama, the last 21 he was in office. and we look at things like maybe the tax cuts, also to regulatory policies, those may have contributed to the resurgence in manufacturing where over the last 21 months or so about 396,000 jobs in manufacturing were added. this is a positive sign for the economy. heather: lots of folks in hollywood have no idea what it's like to work paycheck to paycheck at all. but they have a lot to say. let's talk about this trouble, the world's beer supply could soon run out? >> yes, this is according to a new study in a british journal. over the next few decades, beer could become more scarce, more expensive, because of human caused global warming. this is because barley, the main
1:45 am
ingredient in beer, it could likely substantially drop because of severe droughts and heat extremes that would become more frequent because of the climate changes. we would see beer prices potentially doubling because of the price of barley. also shortages in beer that could reduce the amount that americans consume by as much as 900 million gallons, about 9 billion bottles of beer. let's hope that doesn't happen any time soon. heather: reminds me of the song, bottles of beer on the wall. >> we'll start at 9 billion. heather: thank you so much. how about this? if you are looking for love and someone who supports president trump, there's a new app for that. it's called donald daters and it's for singles searching for fellow trump supporters. the ceo says that they launched the new platform so people could meet and not be afraid of talking politics. the app by the way is free. so we'll see how that does. the time now is 15 minutes

1:50 am
>> i was appalled by what i saw in the video but i support the decision of the portland police not to intervene. this whole incident will be investigated. heather: so are scenes like this the result of an out-of-control safe space mentality? here to weigh in is director of campus, emma michelle. thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. heather: you're from portland. you've seen the protests on and off campus. tell us what you personally experienced or family members or friends. >> as someone who is from portland, the riots do terrify me, not only for the sake of my hometown, but the sake of the country. the left has taken on the mentality that they think they hold the moral high grounds and they're not only justified but obligated to do any means necessary to shut down their opposition over politics. and this is something that i think stems from the college
1:51 am
campus at the leadership institute campus reform, i used to be a correspondent. i went to one of the first antifa riots in portland in 2016 to film. i actually had one of the organizers look me in the eye and say, if you're here to film for the, quote, wrong reasons, that we're going to, quote, take care of you. that violence threat has turned to violent action in my own city. heather: you think the students originally they called for these safe spaces, you think they weaponized the safe spaces and gone on to graduate and go out into the community? >> certainly. and something that i've seen is that original protest that i went to, one of the groups there was the young democratic socialists of america. and since that one protest, they've added 200 new chapters and they've had over 40,000 new members join. it's very important that we watch where these movements begin and it seems to really begin at the college campus. portland state university is kind of central to all of these
1:52 am
