>> you have president trump veering to the left of sanders people on trade. >> maybe be able to give a little bit of health to the steel and aluminum industries. you will cause damage to any number of downstream industries and any number of industries that export to countries that are like lie to retaliate. >> tariffs involve collaboration. he doesn't have a collaboration bone in his body. brian: economists and media many in cases going over the top on the president's plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum should be official by friday of this week. what do the tariffs mean for the forgotten men and women who voted for the president. joining us is the president of the 1219, united steel workers union in braddock, pennsylvania. jim, your reaction to the president's announcement about pending tariffs. >> it's been a breath of
3:17 am
fresh air to actually have a politician that actually acts on it we have heard for too long some people that have talked about trade and actually haven't done anything for it. it's been up to us. the steel workers to actually have to fight these trade cases. it's a huge amount of resources and money and time. normally by the time we get a good ruling on a trade case. we have lost too many jobs at that point. it's refreshing to hear. brian: what are the numbers in terms of steel jobs lost? >> i don't have the number on me right now. with our company u.s. steel, since 2015, i think we had somewhere around 4,000 or 5,000 people laid off. brian: the "wall street journal" said you are helping 140,000 steel workers, perhaps. actually hurting industries that employ 6.5 million americans. >> i don't believe that a lot of people especially in
3:18 am
the stock market, they react based off emotion. i think, you know, once this is all straightened out, everything -- we actually understanding what these tariffs are going to mean. the market is going to balance out. and it won't be as bad as people think. brian: jim, you look like a young guy but evidently george bush did the same thing one year steel tariff at 30%. he wasn't working. he basically said all right. i'm going to pull the plug on that. what's going to be different now? >> you know, that was right after a lot of steel consolidation with companies. huge bankruptcies in 2002. and we consolidated a lot of our steel companies. i do think that opportunity allowed for our companies to modernize our facilities be able to invest in our facilities and workers at the time. and actually helped level the playing field for us. that's what we are looking for right now is a level playing field. just to be able to compete on the same level of these countries that cheat.
3:19 am
look at south korea. no real use for ocg goods there. they export it to america. they put our pipe mills like works in illinois out of the business. we are looking to get that market share back. brian: two big partners are south korea and canada. work with coveted ally he is when it comes to steel they are not playing fair. >> not as far as south korea is concerned. canada we have more of a balanced trade relationship with them. so i don't think canada -- i think canada actually should be excluded from this. that's obviously yet to be seen. but in regards to south korea, yes. they have been -- it's been bad how much the job losses have been. brian: real quick. the word union at the end of your title. that's not usually something with a republican president. do you feel as though this is something that might
3:20 am
change your mind about a republican president? >> to be honest with you donald trump got a lot of support out of our plant this last election due to the fact that trade was a big issue he talked about during the elections cycle. not too many of the other republican candidates even talked about trade excepts for donald trump. that resonated with our manipulate and something the --membership and something r members were excited to hear and he reacted on it and we applaud him for that. brian: we know you have a full dale of work ahead of you. jim johnson. thank you. >> thank you. brian: campaign promise to america's blue collar workers isn't the only one that the president has kept. why would many on the left rather be talking about a joke he made about being president for life. coming to a college near you. convicted leaker chelsea manning talking ethics?

payne down in our nation's capital. president of independent women's voices tammy bruce. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. steve: with we goethe both agree i was joking about being president for life. >> agree. >> i certainly agreement for my friend on the other side there the president knows even with a joke he can control the entire narrative dynamic. there is so much angst with the democratic side. all the 35er8s have now been cleched into dust. this is what is fast sin nation. he controls the narrative in that fashion. it is really about also having a sense of humor and knowing of course what the mess seeming is. and really just about that with america's media. the buyer world is knows the president is kidding america media doesn't want to notice it but has no sense of humor themselves. steve: the "new york times" themselves on op-ed page said mr. trump was surely joking about becoming president for life from?
3:27 am
>> their lips to god's ears i hope he was joking. look at this president, he has failed every test of leadership. this is not conjecture. this is not opinion. he has failed. that's why he was historically low approval numbers. that's why many americans who put their trust in him are having second thoughts. he was already the third choice for president behind people who chose not to vote for hillary clinton. >> this is where factors come in. as a matter of fact, his numbers today over the weekend were exactly where barack obama's were at the same time. millennials in zogby report has millennials supporting him at 49 or 50%. when it comes to the second amendment. 65% of millennials want the second amendment. want their right to own a firearm. we don't know those things because the media doesn't report that joel has to say i believe because the media is not reporting the facts of the success of his policies which is why these numbers are going up. whether it's the tax reform or making america great again. and, of course, worrying
3:28 am
about middle class and our steel workers and everyone else. >> tammy, respectfully, i can list off everything that he has failed at. he has failed at comforter and chief. he has failed as actually a policy as someone who has accomplished policy in office. tax reform is the only thing. >> extra cash in everybody's wallets it changes our lives. you know that. it makes a difference in whether you have a vacation or pate rent. whether you can put money into your child's education fund: >> he has failed at military leadership. >> i disagree with that sir. ask isis about our military leadership. >> yeah. can you ask isis about president obama as well. steve: joel, let's fixate for a moment how has he failed in the military. >> how has he failed in the military? military leadership. >> the niger raid, that was a complete disaster and handling of the war widow after that. a complete disaster and egg on his face. international community laughs at him. he is mocked.

president putin of russia, as hillary clinton said, he is one of the puppet in the white house and he has got one. >> when you had the oslo international gathering, he was cheered like a rock star. so we have got facts that counter act everything you noted but the democrats will only survive if they join reality and admit the nature of what is really going on in this country. steve: great chat to get people's blood boiling this morning. thank you for joining us live. what do you think about that? please email us at friends@foxnews.com. faith under fire. the court case that could rip iconic crosses at arlington national cemetery. get rid of them. pell them out of the ground. mike huckabee cma board over conservative views. >> he fires back after a break. you are watching "fox & friends" live from new york city ♪ everybody's dancing in the moon light ♪

♪ ♪ brian: governor mike huckabee in a still shot playing the guitar as he did every week when he was doing the huckabee show on sunday with his little rockers and also take super stars at fox who have interest in music and he would put them in the band. ainsley: i know. i loved that part of his show. mike huckabee, the former governor of arkansas. former fox news contributor and former g.o.p. presidential candidate. those are just a few of the things on his resume. he was also on the board of the cma. steve: for about a minute. ainsley: for about a minute. he divided to resign. were you pushed out? i know some people had a problem with your conservative values and views. surprisingly in the country music world. were you pushed out? what exactly happened there? what's the story? >> well, when it became controversial, i knew it was going to be a distraction.
3:34 am
that's not i wanted to be. my reason for being involved in it and i was so thrilled to be asked because for decades i have been trying to get music in the arts in public schools. pushed that in my own state. worked nationally across every kind of barrier to put musical instruments in the hands of kids which i think is life-changing. it certainly was for me as a kid. i wouldn't be who i am and where i am today without it and the controversy came. somebody was upset because i'm a member of the nra and i'm conserving and i'm a christian and i hold some views that this person didn't like. and so, you know, it just wasn't worth it to push it. so i lasted less time in that job than anthony scaramucci did at the white house. [laughter] >> you know, i made him look like a lifer. so, as a result in and out like a 24 hour virus. steve: okay. so here is a quote from one of the music execs who did not want you there jason owen. huckabee has a language has a profoundly negative impact
3:35 am
on young people all across the country not to mention how harmful and damaging his deep involvement with the nra is what a shameful choice. >> what do you say that you have a different point of view than he does. are they looking for only like-minded people on that board now or was it you particularly? >> i couldn't answer that. >> here is what i know. the new direction of the left is in the name of tolerance being intoler rants and in the name of love, hate people. in the name of -- it's not enough to say i disagree and wish this person would change his mind. today it's let's put him out of business. let's close his store. let's not allow him to continue to operate a business. let's damage him professionally. let's hurt his brand. i mean, it's all about destroying the other side. rather than disagreeing with the other side. that's not the kind of america where the first amendment reigns and people
3:36 am
are free to speak, associate. today it's let's destroy everyone who doesn't agree with me. sadly, there was a young artist in kentucky who has a similar name to this guy, and this troubles me. a lot of people who thought they were supporting me. went out and attacked this guy. so i went to twitter last night and i said, guys. wrong guy. this young artist in kentucky is 22 years old. we need to support him. let's buy his music. let's show him that this is not who we are. and i said let's not punish the cma because the fact is if they are going to put musical instruments in the hands of kids, then i'm for them. the fact that i'm not going to be a part of it is irrelevant. they don't need me but kids need musical instruments and that's what this ought to be about. steve: it's too bad it ended that way. ainsley: if it is all about that, then why didn't they keep you on the board? steve: how about hollywood hypocrisy. you called out celebrities for double standard on guns. >> well, i think it's a
3:37 am
little ridiculous that people in hollywood are so against law abiding citizens who have never pointed a gun at anybody and every day in hollywood they produce movies in which there are mass murders with automatic weapons. and the glorification of murder. the glorification of the misuse of weapons is at the hands of hollywood. gray up in aim too. i know here we go. you never saw beaver cleaver pointing a gun at somebody in school. when i went to school we had all kinds of guns in high school. they were stuffily tucked in the back of people's window of a pickup truck. noble ever thought about murdering somebody. ainsley: what changed then? why are kids doing this in school now? >> two things changed. one, we have lost a god consciousness. we have lost a sense of accountability. a sense that there is something that we are going to answer for. ainsley: yeah. >> the other thing we have lost is this notion that there is a fantasy and there
3:38 am
is reality. and we have erased those lines and people grow up conditioned to killing through their games and through movies. i'm not saying that's the sole reason. it isn't. but it gives us this mind set and conditioning. and when people aren't mentally stable. they don't know how to separated reality from fantasy. brian: governor, real quick, before we move on to israel and i know there are fewer people better to talk about israeli foreign policy and the threat from lebanon to syria. real quick, on guns, do you want to seat president do anything? do you like marchible-toomey? do you like anything to fix nics with senator cornyn? and senator murphy, do you want them to do anything on this? >> if they can strengthen the background checks, that's great. if they want to raise the age to 21. make exceptions for somebody who has been in the marine corps for three years if he went in at 17 and we have asked him to carry a gun into battle. i think it's a little ridiculous to say he has got to wait a couple years before he can get one there are some things that could
3:39 am
be it needs to be reasonable and not punish the law-abiding citizen. that's the key. brian: israeli's prime minister under fire at home is visiting with the president today and they are good buddies and they are true allies in and out of politics. however, if you are looking at the peace process with the palestinians, to come out of this know the real threat we understand is coming from hezbollah and syria and iran and russia who have combined forces and a war could be imminent. am i correct? >> well, i don't know if the war is imminent. there is always a threat from hezbollah, from syria, from lebanon, because of hezbollah u and that's backed by iran and russia is the willing participant to stand by. here is the real key. if we have a threat from russia. it's not so much what they are doing on facebook. it's what they are doing to arm hezbollah and how they are playing a double game and secretly helping iran. that's what ought to be frightening to us. because that threatens not just israel, but every one
3:40 am
of the gulf states u whether it's cutter, saudi arabia, emirates. serve threatened by enhanced hezbollah, financed by iran. steve: governor, you are over in israel all the time. we spoke to you about a week or 10 days ago when billy graham died that day and you were over in jerusalem. what is the israeli opinion of this president and his quest to try to solve the problems over there. >> even the left wing israelis who don't like him personally cannot help but realize that here is a man who finally, after 70 years, has recognized jerusalem is the capital, is going to move the embassy. really standing with israel in its battle to constantly stay independent free and allow full rides for earn. including its women. unlike most of the countries in the middle east. this is a true light in the midst of a lot of darkness. and so how can they argue
3:41 am

4:02 am
negative to tariffs. we will have peter navarro. three tweets in last 10 minutes. first up large trade deaf swits mexico and canada. nafta under renegation right now has been a bad deal for u.s.a. massive relocation of companies and jobs. tariffs on steel and aluminum will only come off if new and fair nafta agreement is signed. also, canada must treat our farmers better. highly restrictive u canada and mexico must do much more on stopping drugs from pouring into the united states. they have not done what needs to be done. millions of people addicted and dying. brian: interesting. now in the eighth round of nafta negotiations. they are not going well but at least they are moving forward to some degree. they are saying that a lot of nafta negotiators don't have much flexibility because the president has given them staunch marching
4:03 am
orders. don't budge on this. then also some word two weeks ago that the president was considering going into the tpp if it was under better conditions. then in come these tariffs. the president seemed to be indicating with that tweet that they're all linked. steve: some negotiation. ainsley: in january he did announce tariffs on solar panels and on washing machines. this is a new tariff. he says the reason he is doing this because we have made stupid trade deals in the past. he used that you word "stupid." he said we have $800 billion in yearly trade deficits because of what former administrations have done not putting america first. brian: weird thing is with tariffs it's not cut and dry. it's complicated. you look at what george bush did, he put 30% tariff on steel. and after a year, they said let's undo this because it wasn't working. it wasn't effective. steve: well, brian was talking to jim johnson. he is the president of a local 1219 for the united steel workers. and this guy is so happy
4:04 am
that we finally have a president in the white house who actually is following through on something he campaigned on, here's part of that conversation with brian just about an hour ago. >> it has been a breath of fresh air to have a politician that actually acts on it we have heard for too long some people that have talked about trade and actually haven't done anything for it it's been up to us as steel workers to actually have to fight these trade cases. it's a huge amount of resources and time. normally by the time we get a good ruling on a trade case we have lost too many jobs at that point. it's exciting to see that he actually acted upon it and we applaud him for that. brian: it's divided his own cabinet. gary cohn says i don't want you to do that pete navarro says i do want to do this. he wins this battle. this is what the "wall street journal" said on friday. by using this tariff. will hurt 6.5 million
4:05 am
americans to the benefit of 140,000 steel workers. will hurt canada and south korea the most. not china. is that the intention? does peter navarro want to push back on that? ainsley: china says they are going to take necessary measures depending on how it does affect them and their interest. this article says it's not going to affect china? steve: 6.5 million americans involved in trade involved in steel. the question is how much -- i'm sure you were watching and saw wilbur ross hold up a can of soup saying it's a fraction of a penny the amount of the cost that's going to go up. ainsley: half of a 1% it's going to affect the price of a car. steve: ultimately what the president is trying to do it does sound like is he negotiating trade deals with this stuff is will it save the steel industry in the united states and the aluminum industry? and there are hundreds of thousands of jobs involved. we are going to talk to peter navarro the president's trade guy. is he going to be with us exactly 10 minutes from now on this channel.
4:06 am
brian: will there be any carveouts for the european union or canada. steve: he says no. brian: european union says if you do this we will target jeans, harley and whiskey. which are exactly the three things i used over the weekend. ainsley: did you wear a helmet. brian: i did. ainsley: didn't drink the whiskey and then drive the harley. brian: everybody buy the jeans before the tariffs come in. steve: last night was a big television show did. you watch the oscars? well, if you didn't. it might have been you were worried it was political and they didn't let you down. ainsley: here is a montage of jimmy kimmel who hosted the oscars last night. >> she was born in mexico and raised in kenya. let the tweet storm from the president's toilet begin u oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means is he probably at home right now watching fox news.

4:08 am
of responses. ainsley: jim mihm my kimmel so out of touch with america values. ryan brian the real winner at the oscars was me. i didn't waste my time watching because of all of the liberal anti-trump political rhetoric. ainsley: you made a good point in the first hour you said people want to go to the movies to relax. i don't want to look at the actress and actor and think oh she said this and he said. this i want to just go and listen to the script and watch the movie. brian: jennifer lawrence who has come out firmly against trump over the last two years but not recently red sparrow tanked at the box was. said it was one of the worst movies. i wonder if it's related that she polarized her audience. ainsley: look at the ratings for the oscars now. brian: see you later. i'm working on them now. steve: we shouldn't be surprised though at the ratings at the beginning jimmy kimmel did say if anybody is going to win an oscar, this is your opportunity to go ahead and
4:09 am
talk about you know whether it's equal rights or, you know, those kids from parkland high school are going to have that rally at the end of the month. brian: or dreamers. steve: right they beginning encouraging people to be political. brian: other thing i thought was good on the positive side. whoever wins shortest speech wins $17,000 jet ski and went to some costume designer who said thank you under 30 seconds and ended up with $17,000 jet can i. ainsley: actors are saying i can afford five jet skis. 7:09. turning to other headlines. a police officer among two people killed in an avalanche in washington state. 41-year-old bonnie lake, officer james larson and a 27-year-old man were snow mobiling when an avalanche hit them. a third snowmobiler was critically injured.

>> on trade you correctly identified the probable of china dumping steel throughout the world destroy the american steel industry. your solution is let china off the hook. it's only going to hurt american consumers and their allies, please consider your solution. steve: okay there have you republican senator lindsey graham with his opinion warning the president's steel tariffs only serve to let china off the hook. brian: peter navarro is director of the white house trade council often thought to be the most fervent in support of these tariffs. peter, what's your response to senator lindsey graham and others. you let china off the hook and hurt china and south korea more with 25% tariffs on steel and 10% on aluminum. >> brian, the mission here is to save our aluminum and steel industries for the purpose of the preserving our economic and national security. that's what this is all
4:17 am
about. we have imports coming in across the globe threatening those two industries. as the president said, we can't have a country without aluminum steel industry. let's look at aluminum. since 2013, we have lost six smelters. we only have five left. two of them working at full capacity. we have one only one that does high purity aluminum for defense purposes. if we lose that we have to rely on china and some countries in the middle east for that. this is untenable. so, the question is, do we want to save those industries? the president says yes. and then what are the costs? virtually no cost here. there is no downstream price impact. if you put a 10% tariff on live in the newsroom cent and a half on beer and $320 on 330,000,777 bowing. 330,000,. we need to look at the chess board and say do you want a steel industry and aluminum industry in the president
4:18 am
feels very strongly. go ahead. steve: peter, the president himself was tweeting about -- i don't know if you have seen the new tweets, but he says we have large trade deficits with mexico and canada. nafta under renegation right now bad deal for the united states. massive relocation of companies and jobs. here is the important part. tariffs on steel and aluminum will only come off if new and fair nafta agreement is signed u it sounds like the president is putting these tariffs on to get those two countries to sign a new nativity tanchts the purpose of the tariffs is to defend our steel and aluminum industries. steve: i understand that but it sounds like is he negotiating. >> i understand if we get a great nafta agreement and ambassador lighthizer is trying to do that, that would be a great thing for the american people. at this point in time, 25% on steel. 10% on aluminum. no cuts or exclusions, firm line in the sand. brian: south korea and canada one and two coveted
4:19 am
allies. josh bolten former chief of staff for president bush was complimentary on your guy's trade and taxes. he said we tried this before under bush. we had a tariff. it didn't work. listen. >> i don't know if peter navarro would be willing to bet his job that he is right that there won't be retaliation. but he ought to be willing to make that bet. because he is betting the jobs of tens of thousands of americans who depend on these export markets that there won't be retaliation. history is completely against him on that. brian: and eu is going to target jeans, harley and whiskey. electrolux and bmw. >> lobbyist on case reader full throat against. this who cares? we have the politicians. everybody in the swamp is rising up against it you know, at the end of the day, we're getting a bad deal. and the president has said quite clearly, and quite
4:20 am
correctly. that these countries around the world are running huge trade surpluses with us. we are shifting our wealth offshore. they are taking our jobs and factories. all we are trying to do with our trade policy is get a level playing field. what w. this particular case brian and steel, the aluminum and steel industry, this is different. we veto defend those -- we haveo defend those industries and keep them on american soil. steve: no one should be surprised the president is doing. this he said he was going to do it when he was running for president. >> what is this shock and surprise? go back 20 years and watch the president talking about trade and this is very consistent. and so, what is it? these people don't believe that the president keeps his word? first thing he did when he got here. he got out of tpp. renegiating nafta and south korea deal. this is great president doing great things for men and women who work with their hands.

4:28 am
to follow and which rules not. why? because is he a narcissist who gets to decide who is right and who is wrong rather than following the rule. president trump fired him because he was troubled about the russian investigation. and i think that was the wrong reason. ainsley: at first everyone thought is he in hillary's camp because of that press conference in the middle of the summer. he ihe a few days before the election he decides to bring up out case again. >> my book really proves as a matter of fact on october 28th in the morning. and i had some slides sent to you. i don't know if you have them ready. steve: start with the popular vote before the announce you meant. >> on the morning of james comey's work he doesn't have to follow the rules. on the morning of october 28th, hillary clinton is ahead in real clear politics by 5.9%. which by the way called the national election on election day within 1.2%
4:29 am
