rich edson in florida. president trump also willing and on the homeless situation in california. he warned gavin newsom yesterday that if he doesn't fix the problem the feds will get involved. so far no response from you some but earlier this month he accused the trump administration of "playing politics with the issue. christina pullman reporting live for my west coast news hub. >> president trump not holding back today on the state's chronic homelessness crisis. he slammed house speaker nancy pelosi on twitter saying he's lost control of his district. governor gavin newsom has done a really bad job at taking care of the homeless population in california. if he can't fix the problem, the federal government will get involved. however trump didn't say how the feds could intervene. this morning comes after the recent department of housing and urban development report.
that's a 2% rise in homelessness which was caused by a 13.4%, and that's an increase of about 21,300 homeless people in the state alone. this is the latest hud report analyzing data since 2013, and that's at an estimated total of 129,000 as of january 2018. governor newsom says the state is doing more than ever to tackle chronic homelessness and has invested millions to help fight the problem. they asked the trump administration, and about a third of our vouchers are unus unused. and you have a late list in addition to those with vouchers.
it is we do that, there's no greater, quicker or faster way to get tens of thousands of people of the street. >> as of now newsom hasn't said anything about trump's warning to get the fed involved but based on their on going back and forth and criticism of each other, that might change. alisha? >> let's bring in our political panel. laura fink, democratic strategist currently runs a communications company. thank you both for joining me today. laura, i want to begin with you because this is being called a warning, and we just heard that governor newsom wants federal help. she says the president, and i
don't know why the president is doing what he's doing. in san diego specifically, one out of every ten homeless people is a veteran and we need to address the crisis now and a lot of it has to do with housing, getting folks housed in the wraparound services, substance abuse ptsd and mental health services that they need. governorgovernor newsom is righ. and it's a big problem, and no one party can help it, can solve it. >> my response is there is an issue with not enough housing and that is what has driven a lot of the homelessness. california isn't unique in that they have state laws and local ordinances, and a lot of the
problem is that the rents are going up because there is a decrease in housing and they are not able to build new housing and then people are left with no option and that's the root of a lot of this. i think when there have been bills that have been introduced, and, they didn't want to increase some of the housing with too much population density and that sort of thing. it is actually the issue they are that it would be fabulous if we could just remove a lot of those, and have people grow in the market and have the rent go down. you've seen this in texas and it's been really successful in the place a lot of people .2, and homelessness and people and places to go. >> this is by the u.s. interagency council on homelessness. this is the percentage of people that are homeless by state.
this and five, and i want to start with you laura. when i look at the number, even when you on scientifically account for whether comic california is so outsized. and it's really easy to build a luxury tower, and we need to make sure we are funding homeless services, we need to make sure we are building that housing stock, and it's complicated, not a one-size-fits-all solution. you saw texas on the board and deregulation hasn't help them entirely out of the crisis but this is something we need to
come together on. i think republicans and democrats in california and other states would agree with that. let's come to the table and to do. >> that's exactly right because they are homeless and don't really care about whether you are a republican or democrat. i want to put up the suite now by the democrat saying, nancy pelosi's district in california has rapidly become one of the worst in the u.s. when it comes to the homeless and crime it has gotten so bad. so fast, she has lost total control along with her equally incompetent governor gavin newsom it's a very sad site. i will go to you first. how does this help? >> i don't think it actually helps. we were talking about how we need to come together and work with the state and local officials to make sure we can address the service. just like laura, they suffer
from mental illness and substance abuse issues. that's everybody that we can in order to pull them together and work on the issue. >> the president is hardly the one being and antagonistic. >> you know, on the number of issues we could say that about any of the people but let's address what governor newsom specifically asked for which was increasing the value of those vouchers so that those folks that up possess them in california can actually rent and landlords can make a market rate. the market is not working effectively and that's because most vouchers are priced too low. president trump could do that with the stroke of a pen, and it would actually serve him to watch them working and looking in a bipartisan way. when president trump has
democrats on his side he gets things done. when he does not it's all sound and fury. christmas has come and gone and we still haven't received the promised present from north korea. how american forces did something unusual this week just in case the north korean military did anything. this is fox news reporting.

>> alicia: the pentagon sent for surveillance plans to do some laps around the korean old peninsula after north korean officials warned the u.s. about a so called a christmas gift according to a south korean media report. negotiations between the u.s. and pyongyang have stalled since a summit between president trump and kim jong un collapsed back in february. kim has says he will give the u.s. until the end of the year to come back to the negotiating table. lucas tomlinson reporting live from the pentagon. there was a false report that north korea fired a missile today? >> that's right. some japanese citizens were jolted awake sometime after midnight after an alert from the major med comic japanese news outlet said a north korean missile had just fallen over the country. it appeared to be faults but it was not retracted for 23 minut 23 minutes. the u.s. military is not taking any chances. reconnaissance aircraft like
this air force rc 35 have scrambled in recent days to fly missions over the korean pencil mike peninsula. they are monitoring and spying under their communications. so far all is calm. north korean leader kim jong un recently met his top korean brass and the next day, watching for his new year's day address. in 2017, kim said north korea was in the final stages of launching its first intercontinental ballistic missile. but at the end of the year he had done so three times including one that put all the u.s. and range. he now has over 30 nuclear warheads in his arsenal, according to the latest intelligence estimates. >> alicia: as we head into 2020 what will the pentagon be watching in the new year? >> alicia, just because there hasn't been a long-range missile test in the last two years to come they've launched a series of short-range missiles, this
year over a dozen alone. next year what's a missile experts tell me to be on the lookout for is the following. have a reenter earth, and successfully hit a target. recently defense secretary mark esper learned about solid fuel missiles. >> solid fuel boosters do provide you a degree of efficiency and mobility, and it gives you less warning than do liquid fuel rockets. it's another thing that we watch because it reduces our warnings if you will. >> now perhaps north korea surprise christmas gift could be coming next month on orthodox christmas. these things could get lost in translation as you know. >> alicia: christmas is christmas, as you know. workers only have a 50/50 chance of saving the notre dame
cathedral from collapse. that's according to the notre dame raptor who said scaffolding is threatening to crash through parts of the cathedral. a fire that broke out on april 15 took up the cathedral's fire and most of the roof. cleanup teams say it also released tons of poisonous lead dust and the rector says workers may not be able to start restoration for more than a year. the french president has called for the cathedral to be completely rebuilt by 2,241 pair is host the olympics. investigators say they are still not certain what caused the fire. if you have to get home after the holidays, you might want to wait, because considering the crowds, today is one of the worst days to fly or drive. we will see how folks are coping and look at what's in store for you whether, next. as a struggling actor, i need all the breaks that i can get.

considering filing criminal charges against harvey weinstein after spending two years investigating sexual assault grant claims against him. representatives for the disgraced movie producer tell fox news that mr. weinstein's team has not heard any of this from any other source but media and we are looking out for more information. he has pleaded not guilty to those and denies all accusations of sexual misconduct. let's bring in criminal defense attorney mimi coffee. thank you so much for joining me today. we have some questions about this. some of these accusations according to the "los angeles times" date back to 2013, february of 2013. what does that timeline tell you about success in california? >> i think that that timeline is going to work for the district attorney's office because of the statute of limitations is still at play. particularly with the italian
actresses allegations that they are really investigating right now. >> alicia: you bring up this italian actress, and she claims that harvey weinstein her in a hotel in beverly hills los angeles area. according to law enforcement sources the actress did not immediately report the alleged incident but she did tell three people what happened to her including her priest. investigators travel to italy that where she lived at the time of the assault and independently verified their accounts. so under california statute, is it difficult though in any way when we are just talking about the statements from the victim? >> well, i think that under the california statute, harvey weinstein is going to have a more difficult time because of the california me to law.
if jackie lacey decides to pursue the italian actresses claim then under the law other accusers can come and testify about their experience with sexual harassment and criminal allegations of harvey weinstein. >> alicia: we are talking about eight different cases he here. for in los angeles and four in beverly hills. if you are not saying that you could bring in additional victims, you are just talking about those who could provide testimony and evidence? >> certainly they are going to have to decide what cases are meritorious to prosecute and not prosecute but it will be up to each individual prosecuting attorney to determine whether or not the probative value of another accusers testimony would outweigh unfair prejudice. in other words, actual instances of sexual harassment or misconduct, that would be
allowable. >> alicia: he's facing trial in new york city, and that's getting underway next month. does that impact them here or does it at all? >> it's interesting because i think that the timeline of our publicity has helped the l.a. district attorney because one of the accusers who had contacted the new york pd actually was directed to the task force in l.a. that jackie lacey had created. speaking okay, we will have to watch things getting underway next week. thank you so much for your time, i appreciate it. did you get any christmas gifts that you don't love? plenty of people set to start making the returns today and returns turn out to be big business, that's ahead. but first, 2019 had their share of interesting stories, some caught on camera. here's a look at some of the year's best and most unusual moments. >> on the side of the

speaking of christmas, sorry kids, but it's over. the rush to return things is just getting started. americans are expected to send back up to $95 billion of stuff purchased over the holidays according to a company that helps retailers liquidate. fox business networks jeff flock has been walking the streets of chicago talking to folks returning merchandise. how's it going? >> literally walking the streets, this is state street. this is the iconic shopping district of chicago and you are absently right about that number. now about $100 billion i should say worth of returns on the top 10% this year compared to last year. i'm looking at the numbers and here's another interesting number. 77% of people that got a gift this holiday will return at least one of them and 20% will return they say half their gifts. to mean, that's an amazing
number. i think we are way too picky this year. i will show you as we come back live here the iconic windows of what used to be called marshall fields. mike, take a look at this window. this santa claus and a supercharge's lead to. speaking business, this is a thing, a return that cost businesses lots of dough. they were $41 billion by estimate of online returns this year, that cost retailers about $50 billion in lost profits. restocking costs and all the rest. and in terms of when it did things get returned? while apparently they get returned within the first month. >> alicia: 77% of people return something they got. i know it's boring but you don't return them. >> gift cards would be a good idea.
yes, and this was a restocking cost and that's the number that we gave them just online. the bulk of the returns that are actually done in store and i will tell you this. even though the returns mostly come in the store, the vast majority, the purchases still still common stores. so it's a much greater chance that it's going to return something online as opposed to in-store, i just want to see something as we bought it. i don't much care for online shopping. >> then you couldn't go out and talk to people on the street. thank you so much. >> i know, i'm such a people person. thank you. >> we are keeping an eye on the markets in these final minutes of trading, a live look at the dow on pace right now for buckler to close. >> we will have new records for all three major averages, it
only had to gain 36 points today to go through that high. here we are and it looks like we are poised at the 83 points, and traders down here are calling us to melt up instead of a melt down. that's a series of records and, also setting a record high, at the bar was low here and only had to finish up about half a point. it's on 34th record close to that index and the nasdaq is a rocking through 9,000 points. look at this. it's a new all-time high as well, it's the tenth record close in a role, the longest stretch and 22 years. why are markets doing so very well? there are a series of reasons. a lot of it has to do with the china u.s. trade deals that are expected to be done soon. china and the u.s. removing
tariffs and then our economy is doing so well, consumers are still spending money here. it was a strong christmas holiday season and we saw sales of up to 3.4%, online holiday sales were up 18.8%. companies like apple making new all-time highs and as we see these markets just on fire at the end of the year here, such a big difference from last year when we had a major sell-off and it lots of optimism down here early. so some good news. >> alicia: good news especially for investors the day after christmas. gerri willis, have a good one. an update to a story that we told you about earlier in the hour, new york city police say they found the 14-year-old is suspected of killing a bernard of freshmen earlier this. detectives tweeted the news earlier but now they have released the teenager. it's unclear if he will face any charges.
