steve: president trump has agreed to 90-day cease-fire to hash out trade negotiations with china. the president tweeted something else overnight that nobody had heard about. china has agreed to reduce and remove tariffs on cars coming in to china from the u.s. currently the tariff is 40%. that is a gigantic headline. what's that all about? let's talk to christian
3:18 am
whiton a former state department senior advisor in the trump administrations. he joins us now. smart power. this is a headline if true. >> if true. right. this is the problem with agreement the chinese have said they agreed conceptionly as they did in the trump presidency to lower tariffs to talk about trade to get through some of these things. i didn't see anything in that agreement to lower car tariffs but maybe that will happen in this 0 day period. steve: you don't trust the chinese at the table. >> no. the mar-a-lago summit and earlier this year in march they offered the same type of framework and same basket of goodies they are going to buy a bunch of you are escorts and turned out not to be real. steve: you think the chinese, who have the long view, they are going to wait him out. they think this guy can't get reelected and the next guy is going to be a bush

over. >> i think. so not so much the long view who they have on payroll opinion makers and wall street investment bankers very happy with this deal telling them that trump is an aberration. they see this agreement as a singe weakness. a 90 day delay in tariffs set to go up on january 1. they think this business them 90 days. the 90 day's endeavor to compete in 90 days this could run longer and you will bet wall street will want it to go longer. steve: a 90 day truce to negotiate some sort of a trade deal. excuse me. trump will delay raising the tariffs on 200 billion in chinese goods. china to buy a substantial amount of u.s. products. a lot of ag stuff which is unitegreat. no deal tariffs get jacked up to 25%. chinese hate that idea. >> they do. although that also should be seen as measured because tariffs on only about half of chinese imports are 10% now. small tranche at 25.
3:20 am
even though that raises the prices 10%. china has devalued currency by 8%. essentially no tariff now. >> so where are we right now. >> where are we is i think the president in this agreement may have undercut the emerging strategic vision that we're going to be much tougher on china militarily and economically. articulate the by vice president pence at a speech at the hudson institute and apec. the chinese think they have won one. i think president trump will be tough. i hope at the end of 90 days he is tough if the chinese hasn't done anything. this turns into a real read my lips moment where the president seems to be ignoring a fundamental promise he made to voters. wall street is not going to get donald trump reelected. the people who expect more manufacturing jobs in america are going to do it. steve: see what happens. futures are up 400 or 500 points based on the tweet earlier. >> wall street is happy.

announcement, barbara and george bush were coming out. the place went absolutely crazy. ainsley: he was 94 years old. he had the distinct honor of being the longest living president in american history. i remember covering when tony snow passed away his spokesperson. i was anchoring "fox & friends." our producers were talking in our ear saying the president is own the phone. president bush and barbara bush are in the phone. we are in bed having our coffee and watching "fox & friends" and we learned about tony snow's passing by watching your show and i had the same thought wow, they watch "fox & friends" that's such an honor for all of us. let's bring in dan bongino, also served our country a great service man. former nypd and secret service agent. how is he remembered amongst those men and women? >> ainsley, i can remember a story when i was on president bush the younger 43's detail obviously when he was the president, and we took a trip up to kennebunkport. the family would hang out

3:38 am

3:40 am
they are coming here for economic opportunity. why? because we are the freest country on earth. why are you bashing our economic system. this is the kind of peace ethics poses them if you get them on the record to answer. deroy is right. if it's about economic opportunity. panama is closer and probably has some opportunities there as well. but the left won't admit that. that's why, steve, they constantly focus on oh, they are coming here for asylum. some are. most of them are not. brian: get a deal going. great point. get the southern border of mexico reinforced. they won't have a problem with their northern bored and we won't have one on our southern border. get mexico involved in this and get congress to do something before this lame duck sessions is done. make them come together in the next two weeks. >> we're going to have, to brian. listen, chaos is not a policy, okay? and the left -- i have been harping on this endlessly. no one on the left is proposing anything sensible other than emotional talk. it's an emotional situation. we get it but sooner or later you have to put something down on pen and paper and the left has

not. because they hide. griff: expectations of those meetings in washington would be, guys, remain in mexico sort of deal. the foreign minister saying he wants marshall plan with more commitments for resources and money going to central american countries to try to stem them from coming in the first place, guys? steve: something has got to give. griff, live in tijuana, thank you very much. ainsley: thanks, griff. steve: meanwhile, let's go to the great state of texas and ken paxton is the texas attorney general and he joins us right now from austin. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning from texas. steve: explain to us why you are suing san antonio. >> our legislature about a year and a half ago passed a sanctuary city bill that required cities and other entities like that to require law enforcement to ask about immigration status and required to turn over illegals who are requested by the federal government. in this case chief of police
4:36 am
of san antonio found 12 illegal also being smuggled into the country after being requested to turn them over to the actual government and refused to do so and released them without any federal background check and without any concern for the children that were involved. steve: you are suing san san antonio for $11 million? >> it's just about a 25,$500 day for violation. every day they are in violation they are potentially liable. steve: what are the possibilities you will actually get that money? >> you know, we're optimistic. we think it's pretty clear that the police chief violated state law and federal law. this is obviously our first lawsuit. we investigated this and clearly believe that the police chief violated state law. brian: the thing is know every time we hear that the courts don't seem to he agree. the sanctuary city has withstood all legal challenges. this president ran on fighting sanctuary cities. went to follow through on it
4:37 am
and the courts have stopped him. >> that is certainly the case. in our case, we actually went all the way to the sixth circuit. our law was struck down initially. allowed to continue by the sixth circuit. we are pursuing it. the law is absolutely in place. and we plan on enforcing it. steve: senate bill 4. ainsley: well, we are all remembering president bush this morning, bush 41 who passed away on friday. i know you have some stories you would like to share with us. >> well, that's true. obviously, we are proud texans and that he served as president from texas. obviously, an amazing man with an amazing accomplishments from being u.n. ambassador to cia director. but really just a great man. a man that people in texas just loved personally along with his entire family. brian: i understand the state, especially houston, loved the fact that he could have went anywhere. and he chose -- yeah, i'm kennebunkport it's going to be in my family forever. i'm going to retire and he
4:38 am
did spend his days in houston. you guys took pride in that. >> there is no doubt. we loved that he was from houston. that he showed up in houston. that he lived in houston. people felt around the state. obviously he came here and started his business straight out of yale. and it was here for decades and decades making a difference in our stat in all kinds of different ways. obviously a sad loss for us. but, we're proud of what he accomplished and people here loved him. steve: indeed. of the eyes of the world are on texas today and this week mr. attorney general. i think we have got some live images from what is commonly known as air force one. will be carrying the former president back to washington, d.c. there you can sees a the sun comes up and cameraman focuses on the side of the airplane and pulls back out. we understanding apparently they are taking out the rows of chairs, seats, that is in the presidential cabin so that they can actually put the coffin upfront where the
4:39 am
president rides. that was at the direction of president trump. ainsley: where he will ride in air force one for the last time. brian: all right. thanks, ken. appreciate it. >> y'all have a great day. brian: other news is happening. a lot of news. including something that got steamed over but some big news in alaska. carley: absolutely. want to focus on alaska for a minute. more than 14 lurks aftershocks rocking the state as clean up from a massive earthquake continues. a state of emergency just extended after the 7.0 magnitude quake jolted last week. apaysingly no one was injured. most schools in the area will be closed all week as officials work to repair roads and fix broken water lines. and the kansas city chiefs win first game since shocking video surfaced showing running back shoving and kicking a woman. he was released by the team on friday is now apologizing. >> i'm extremely embarrassed
4:40 am
because of that video. carley: the nfl is now investigating the incident. environmentalists are slamming a global climate conference for having, get, this too much meat on the menu. they say there were twice as many meat options as vegetable options at the poll land summit. this particular protester stuffing his head gear with greens and a note that says act now. their goal is to find ways to reduce greenhouse gases. and do you remember this scene from the classic movie christmas vacation? [screams] carley: who doesn't know that one? a clark griz wald decoration causing a real life scare in texas. a veteran saw the dummy hanging off the roof and thought it was real a home surveillance video capturing him frantically trying to save it with a ladder. look at this guy. brian: he is great.
4:41 am
that's the ladder. look at that. the homeowners say they called that vet and thanked him for his concern with a gift card. they also put the sign saying the decoration is not real. yeah, i would say that sign is probably a good idea. ainsley: that guy. what a hero. steve: very realistic. ainsley: he got a little closer. realized. steve: meanwhile, janice dean is outside. she is not on a ladder. she is on street level with the folks. janice: i'm very grateful for the ground today. how are you guys doing?

to you. brian: all eyes on what's expected to be a big day for wall street with futures already surging out of the gate on news of a trade cease-fire so to speak between china and the united states. trump tweeting this overnight. china has agreed to reduce or remove tariffs on cars coming in to china from the u.s. currently at 40%. which by the way was in response to us putting tariffs. here with outlook is former chair and cbo of -- founder of 32 advisors. so the 90-day pause. are you happy? >> i am. first of all, as you know, we spoke before, i'm not necessarily pro-tariffs to begin with. now that we have them i think a 90 day truce makes a lot of sense. it wasn't surprising to me because i think going into the holidays the last thing we need is more market volatility and you will see the markets do incredibly well today. brian: trying to get ahold of this two and a half hour meeting. we don't know exactly what took place. china agreed to buy unspecified amount of products.
4:48 am
>> soybeans and llg. brian: crack down and relabel fentanyl which will be great. the thing that bothers me is what china says. china says we will work together to reach a consensus on trade issues. they didn't mention intellectual property. they didn't mention the 90 days. they didn't mention any specifics that we mentioned. >> we have chatted before on this. the most important thing as you said, brian, is intellectual property protection. we have to look at things like economic espionage. we have to take a much tougher track on making sure they are not stealing our intellectual property. with respect to the truce though, it makes a lot of accepts because tariffs really end up being passed onto the consumer. going from 10 to 25% would have been incredible market volatility going into the holidays. the nintninth day truce makes s. china hasn't said 90 day
4:49 am
truce. we know what president trump said. we haven't heard anything from the chinese side. brian: trying to reconfigure our trade relationship. not trying to dance around the edges. in 90 days we could be right back here. one thing is some people said we should have brought the eu with us. the eu just as upset by that it would have been more powerful to have them with us. >> the answer is yes, the more the merrier, but really the best thing for president trump to do is to go back and to tpp and bring up trans-pacific partnership, because those are the 11 countries that china do trade with. best way to be powerful with china is to attack intellectual property and build the relationships with everyone around them. this is what i would say not the best policy but since this is where we are, i'm supportive of this 90 day truce but i'm not sure if it gets anywhere. brian: a lot of protest the people had wanted us involve that was a hedge against china to reestablish ourselves in the area. the tariffs have worked the

moment of silence for their hometown fan who lived not far from the stadium. brian: he saw them go on a fantastic winning streak. they won again this weekend. heart-breaking picture of his service dog sully refusing to leave his side. president bush at 94 years old, we know suffering from parkinson's like disease, we knew things he was going in and out of the hospital over the last five to seven years. so we knew things were touch-and-go for a while. it doesn't make it any easier when he goes, number one. number two as you reflect back in his life, the guy was constantly trying to do deals and pet things done as a leader. so different from where we're at now, because we're not merely trying to get things done. people stay in the corners. there is no coming together. he was always determined to come to together. ainsley: a man of service. he joined the navy when 18 years old. went to yale. moved to texas. he was from massachusetts. when you think texas, you think the bush family.
5:03 am
texans love that family. he was the reason the family ended up in texas. he moved there to get in the oil business, became very successful want into politics. brian: went back to the family and relatives if you could finance my business i will pay you back. they drew up all the deals about stocks in the brand new company. he took huge risks, put the relationships on the line, returned all that capital and more. made so much money by the time he was in his 30s, now it is time to give back, he will do it in public service. after winning congressional seat, he failed twice two separate times to win a senate seat. he learned from it. he made more progress. next thing nixon was calling on him to help him out. when people saw what he could do. he would get a series of jobs to make him the most qualified president we ever had. steve: casey stiegel live in texas with all this week how the president will be honored in

much the former president's body will lie there in the capitol rotunda starting tonight. running through wednesday. he has had a lifetime of public service. one of the fellows who was on along for the entire ride was james baker who was, during his career, he was the president's chief of staff, his secretary of treasury. he actually signed the money and he was the secretary of state. over the last couple weeks it looked as of george herbert walker bush, who rebounded so many times from past illnesses would rebound again. but then on friday james baker got word, probably not going to happen at this time. you should come over. he did and he was there for this. >> last words george bush ever said were, i love you, and he said those words to 43, president george bush 43, who had called in to say, dad, i love you.
5:07 am

5:08 am
way it is going to be. i'm going to heaven today. ainsley: they believe in jesus. they believe there is no pain and suffering. they are not scared to die. brian: easy to say you're staring at it,. ainsley: you're 94. you always had a great life. you had quite a legacy. one son becomes president. one son becomes positive. so loved by everybody in texas and kennebunkport. people love them all over the country. steve: when james baker walked into the room, apparently george herbert walker bush, jimmy, he said where are we going? we're going to heaven. ainsley: he had run his race. steve: on "60 minutes" they aired a series of recent interviews where george w. bush, bill clinton and barack obama talked about the legacy of the 41st president. here is what the 43rd president said his father taught him about the highest office in the land.
5:09 am
>> the mission was not george h.w. bush. the mission was how do we serve the united states? how do we help the united states. how do we make the united states better? which is very important in establish agriculture that can succeed. it is really one of the important mings for americans to understand. dad taught me this. therefore one of the jobs is to strengthen the institution of the presidency. bring honor to the office. that clearly george h.w. bush did. brian: i also think one of the great things president bush did, show such grace when he didn't succeed, didn't win a second term. he became friends and somewhat of a mentor for bill clinton. he would say after bill clinton spoke one time, he did a great job, bill clinton was a great speaker, he said, i know why i lost. they traveled together, when they had only one bed,
5:10 am
bill clinton slept on the floor, gave the bed to bush 41. bush 43 and clinton bonded. they rarely talked bad about each other. bill clinton after katrina, bill clinton, and george bush, 41, working together to quickly raise as much money as possible for the people that had been so devastated. there is george bush. listen, you have to say, your son's administration really dropped the ball here. not really. george bush, said this was impossible to anticipate. in comes bill clinton, you cannot blame the administration, no one ever predicted the levees to break. those relationships panned out that way. it must have been so hard for him to lose, praise this guy and support this guy the way he did. ainsley: you know, this tradition of writing letters, it is kind of a dying art, something that generation and our parent's generation are so good at. you were saying brian, when your mother passed away, you got a letter from bush 43.
5:11 am
he probably learned that from his dad. we interviewed several people, liz cheney, he would write letters to his kids on their birthdays or liz cheney said she got a letter when they were going through a tough time during the administration, there was a lot of backlash about their dad, how headlines could be negative. it was affecting them. george bush, wrote a letter saying your dad is one of the greatest guys i ever met. steve: prolific note writers without a doubt. george herbert walker bush, 5years, starting at 18, kept a diary. the bush foundation turned some of these particular diaries into a video, which they released. here he is speaking in september of 1998. ainsley: get your kleenexes out. steve: talk to his family and his heirs about this getting old business. >> dear kids, this letter is about aging.
5:12 am
last year there was only a tiny sense of time left. of sand running through the glass. i want to put this aging on hold for a while now. i don't expect to be on the a-team anymore, but i want to play golf with you, fish and throw shoes and rejoice your victories and want to be there if you get a bad bounce in life no doubt you will. the seas do get rough. if you need me i'm here, devote he hadly dad. ainsley: devotedly, i love that. we have to start signing our letters devotedly. brian: that was 98, he felt like he was aging? look how much longer he would live after that. his son would become president two years after. for a christmas party before the white house christmas party, if you come in a little early we'll tour you into the oval office, and george bush 41 was there. i went to this little gift shop, bought a pullover sweatshirt and something else.
5:13 am
he goes where did you get that. the gift shop. there is ugliest shop in the white house. there is gift shop in the white house? yes. ask your son. steve: what a life. >> there was a legacy, another good story we aired in the show, what 43 said to his son the first time they met in the oval office. hi, mr. president, hi, mr. president. brian: dad. ainsley: very special moment. steve: we'll remember him all week long. meantime in other news, thousands of migrants in the caravan forced out of that tijuana shelter over health concerns which we told you about last week. griff jenkins live in mexico coming up next. ainsley: carla provost will be here. border patrol chief coming up.

5:25 am
five of the students who layed pot-laced candies were rushed to the hospital. brian: joining husband us for a parent in polk county florida, of course grady judd is the sheriff there. so many states are considering this, medical marijuana or recreational marijuana. what is your warning? >> i don't have a profit or crystal ball i've been telling people in the state of florida for years, whenever you take a substance like marijuana, you put the thc into gummies it will end up in children's hands. when you look at the package it is called the greenhorn net. it is packaged and marketed toward children. what did we end up with? we ended up with six, 12-year-old children who overdosed on greenhorn net gummies full of marijuana. steve: right. >> that's right, they were stoned. they got very sick. five of them were transported to

5:28 am
>> you're absolutely there is a price to pay for pot. i spent my entire life in law enforcement and a lot of it is investigating traffickers of drugs. this is not a minor non-violent felony. it is ruining families and killing people every day across the united states and we stand here in denial thinking it is not a gateway drugs to drugs killing people. ainsley: you don't start on cocaine. probably start with marijuana and leads to other things, right? >> that is absolutely right. still today we have a meth problem across the state and country. if someone is in possession of meth, they're in possession of marijuana. it cuts edge of meth. they use marijuana and meth and kill themselves and overdose or kill someone else. steve: nonetheless these particular gummies and edibles are legal in other states. on is justly in the state of florida it is not.
