3:02 am
helicopter, we will brings it to you as soon as it happens. griff: a long journey. the president left christmas night on air force 1. and made his way all the way over to anbar province. the heart of where isis has been driven from. where the fight continues today to root out terrorists. this is marine one. now you see the president at joint base andrews and flown the short 20-minute or so trip here. moments ago you are looking at tape as he gets waves and should be getting out soon. we will find out. he has certainly got to be a little bit jet lagged and tired for that sort of a trip. a trip that many were saying that he wouldn't make. criticized him for not making. yet, he did it as you know full well, pete hegseth, how important a trip like that is to troops. pete: the president tweeted poor me i'm at the white house alone turns out he
3:03 am
wasn't. katie: getting on a plane. pete: big boost. you can't manufacture the troops reactin reacting to the president. how some in the mainstream media want to react to that at the end of the day, the troops are enthiews as stick to hear from their commander-in-chief. they feel like it means that he is behind them all the way. even as we have a national debate and conversation, katie, about what our troops should be doing in iraq. what our troops should be doing in syria. they still appreciate that they have a commander-in-chief who has got their back and believes in them. katie: huge morale boost for not just the troops but the iraqi government and state officials on the ground still doing the work. we are seeing president trump walk off of marine one right now. this happened just a couple of minutes ago at the white house. first lady melania trump is right behind him. they have been gone from washington, d.c. for about 24 hours. a little over 24 hours.
3:04 am
they had a quick trip to iraq and germany and as we saw with the photos that they were taking, president trump was taking selfies with a number of the troops. melania trump was there as well. he gave a speech yesterday to the troops and talked about their fight with isis. saying that we are not going to be pulling out of iraq. he defended his decision to pull troops out of syria and reiterated that if isis decides to try to gain a foot hold in that country again, we will use iraq as a launching pad to go after them. so, the first lady and president trump walking into the white house just a couple of minutes ago from their whirlwind trip overseas. pete: they are home. whirlwind is a way to put it efficient is another way. in business terms, right? when he walked in though you can't manufacture how the troops react. this is the troops reacting to their commander-in-chief walking. in watch. [chanting u.s.a.]
3:05 am
[cheers and applause] [chanting u.s.a.] griff: airmen first class of the squadron ramp service was had this to say i'm just at a loss for words right now. true ofly amazing i took a selfie of melania as she touched me on my arm i told her it was an honor and it truly is that one of the several hundred members of our armed forces that was there and saying to sergeant in stripes what it meant to them it wasn't just a morale boost, pete, as you know. this is the commander-in-chief and is he getting an assessment of the conditions on the grounds from the leaders there that are still engaged in this fight some 15 years later in
3:06 am
that anbar province. griff: it's really important. he has made big decisions lately he has been criticized for them. iraq, syria. what's the future in both places to hear from commanders will either validate that. it seems it has validated that the troops 17 years into what happened on 9/11. still had this sense that we had accomplished a lot but what are we doing? seems like drift. they see this commander-in-chief that walks in and says listen, i have got your back. i'm going to make tough calls. it's not going to be easy. we crushed isis. what you have to remember. let's go to that. this is president trump yesterday at al assad air base in iraq talking about isis. listen. >> the courageous men and women at al assad air base are on the leading age of our fight to vanquish america's terrorist enemies. two years ago, when i became president, they were have a very dominant group.
3:07 am
they were very dominant. today they are not so dominant anymore. [. [cheers and applause] >> we'll be watching them very, very closely. the remnants of isis. some people say well, maybe, somebody comes from the area and they hit us on our homeland. if that happens, they will suffer consequences over here like nobody has ever suffered before. no enemy on earth can match the awesome strength of american soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. nobody is even close. griff: nobody even close. this story was breaking from one of the commanders i was with in anbar in 2007. he said it's so important for the troops to see the support, physically, and to hear that what they are doing is important for the country and that they their sacrifices are appreciated. yesterday, a very well known delta force commanders jeremy miff boykin had this to say. >> do anything but to pump
3:08 am
them up. to have the president of the united states visit them is a very big deal. and the timing couldn't be better in terms of the president being able to get his message out on what his intentions are with regards to sierra. i think this is nothing but a positive for the president even though i personally don't agree with his decision on syria. katie: of course. after criticizing the president for allegedly not going to iraq to visit the troops, they were very upset yesterday when troops brought president trump maga hats to sign. let's listen to what they said. >> we saw the president signing a campaign hat, a red hat, his make america great again hat. does this run the risk of the president facing some accusations that he is turning some of this into a campaign stop? >> the question is if they brought them or if the president brought them what commander allowed that to really happen? this is very much against military policy and regulation. >> every time is he around military audiences, he tends to politicize it and he
3:09 am
brings in complaints and grievances have outside the realm of military policy. >> the president seems to have confused in some way this troop visit with a campaign rally by raising things like the border wall and things that he has done for them. pete: oh, boy. so here's a headline. katie: aren't u.s. troops american citizens? pete: last time i checked. headline from a network that starts with c and ends in n. troops bringing trump hats to sign may violate military rule. let me tell you this. i have been deployed. there it is right there. there is the headline. you can ship whatever you want or have one ship it to you and you are allowed to have political beliefs. you can't shove them on someone else. i have had a political debate with democrats overseas in front of of my platoon. you can have these conversations. so, and there was speculation trump folks brought hats and handed them. katie: no. they had them there they were already there. pete: they had them. there is a lot of guys in
3:10 am
the military we should put america first. maybe that's good. maybe i can have a flag. so insane that these networks find a reason to nitpick this president every way when he is overseas with the troops. if i was deployed i would probably have a maga hat if he signed up he better sign it. griff: timing of the visit. thanksgiving, christmas. i went back and i believe it was 2004 and u.s. tour covered it. it is a different time. and it is a joyous time. when you brought your hat, military dress guy at campaign sanctioned event. in fact, if you read one of the articles, is it says it was not a campaign rally but it is great that the president visited the troops at a time like this. katie: while the president was overseas there was a lot happening here. jillian halls the headlines. jillian: a massive manhunt is underway for this man you are about to see suspected

♪ >> there is no military more capable and now more lethal, more fearless and more skilled than the united states armed forces. nobody is even close. you are the patriots who ensure the flame of liberty burns forever bright. that's how are. griff: a surprise visit from the commander-in-chief. moments ago president trump returning to the u.s. from a u.s. combat zone. griff: general anthony tata former commanders of u.s. forces in afghanistan and author of "dark winter" he joins us this morning. >> thank you for having me here. pete: your reaction to the president's visit overseas.
3:17 am
>> 10-foot tall moment to have our president over there. he has provided huge increases in military budgets for our military both on the home front and overseas. he has articulated a clear policy through his national security strategy. and the trump doctrine is playing out very nicely where we are attacking terrorism at its source. and we are fighting china and russia in cyberspace and we are building weapons to be able to compete against them and he are a kick could yo -- articulated thestrategy fe there and to have our beautiful first lady attend with him, what a message that sends. she has spent so much time with our military families and spouses and children on the home front. and to have her and him go over there it, just sends such a strong message that the trumps love our military, support our military, and what a great
3:18 am
time to do it. griff: general, in addition to the morale boost, having the commander-in-chief there getting a realtime face-to-face assessment of the conditions on the ground after such a big move like the withdraw in syria, can you speak to that and what he has gained by this trip? >> yeah. i think it was very important for the president to go over there and articulate his strategy in syria and mainly because, you know, you get some news over there and, you know, you get a lot of cnn and other stuff. you get all this fake news that is spun in different ways. and for the president and first lady to go over there and articulate their messages about syria and families, it was so important. and, you know, syria, i think, is the exact right call to get out of syria and perhaps put some private military contractors in there, have an over the horizon force and allow for investment in to come in there and clean up oil
3:19 am
fields and put in some pipelines and stabilize that region and work a deal with the kurds and the turks and the saudis. i mean, it really is a brill cents strategy if you think about it. pete: general, you saw the reaction from the rank and file, from the trooption, as the commander-in-chief walked in. those guys on the ground, doing the heavy lifting iraq, syria, elsewhere. they see these policy debates in washington. how are they really feel about their commander-in-chief and the future of our country? >> the military loves our president and rightfully so because our president supports the military so well. he puts his money where his mouth is. and also his doctrine of, you know, chasing terrorists where they are. and not getting involved in enduring entanglements and competing with china and russia are really the three fundamental tenets of the trump doctrine. he has adhered to that anybody who is debating anything is not paying attention to what the president has been saying. he is doing exactly what he said he would do two and a
3:20 am
half years ago on the campaign trail. and he is executing that strategy and this is, you know, the quintessential civilian control of the military. the president is in charge. and there is an old saying, pete. when this charge, be in charge. there is no question that president trump is in charge. griff: that's a great point, general at a time that. thank you for joining us hearing from a commanders that certainly would know. >> merry christmas, appreciate it? >> merry christmas, y'all. pete: congress set back to get back to work as congress enters day six. you are not even counting. will we see more resistance. jason chaffetz joins us on that. griff: plus, mayor bill de blasio wants to legalize pot in new york city. now he wants to use millions in taxpayer dollars to subsidize marijuana businesses. is that a good idea? we'll debate it. ♪ ♪ oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪

a police officer barely he is scapes oncoming train incredible dash cam video shows the officer swerve and slam on brakes as the train approaches near chicago. the train company says electrical caused the gates to stop working. katie: thanks, griff. new york taxpayer dollars about to go up in smoke quite literally. mayor bill de blasio wants the government to subsidize $10 million to help marijuana startups is that really a good idea? here to debate is jonathan harris and president and ceo of smart approaches to marijuana kevin sabat. thank you both so much for being here. >> thank you. katie: kevin, i will start with you. mayor bill de blasio has been against the legalization of marijuana. now all the sudden he wants not only to legalize it but use taxpayer money to subsidize those who want to get in the business. is this a good idea. >> obviously it's not. mayor bill de blasio does not want to legalize
3:25 am
marijuana is he being pressured to do. so a way to save face because he knows, like we all do, that legalized marijuana is about one thing and one thing only that's money for frankly wall street and silicon valley. it has nothing to do with social justifiable because we know who is going to get rich. we know who has the capital and connections to actually set up and that's why ultrea philip morris is buying up. he is saving face we will throw taxpayer dollars to help small businesses. the reality is $10 million isn't going to help $100 million isn't going to help. these are massive businesses taking after the death and destruction of big tobacco that lied to the american people for a century and selling these super hypo tent candies, cookies, gummies. today's pot is not your woodstock weed. i don't want to throw people in prison for pot. let's be very clear. i'm all for social justifiable. i worked for the last democratic president for two and a half years. the reality is we don't need to legalize and commercialize pot. give it over to big tobacco
3:26 am
in order to achieve social justice. this is a bad idea. katie: jonathan, there is a number of states where marijuana is legal. what about this idea that the mayor is now saying, you can see on the screen, colorado, nevada, arizona has medical marijuana. the yellow states are medical and green i believe are both. what about this idea that the government now in new york city, which is strapped for cash already wants to subsidize those who claim they want to get into the marijuana industry? >> look, i think it's very important to point out that it is partially about social justice. i mean, these are crimes that, for example, african-americans are prosecuted for four times as much as their white counter parts even though they use the drug the same. it's important to point out it does have that element as well. they have spent $3.6 billion on law enforcement enforcing laws about marijuana, arresting people, pulling people over, things like that. so it's already costing
3:27 am
taxpayers money. like i said to the tune of $3.6 billion. it's just, i think, shifting the use of that money to make it more effective for these communities and bill de blasio is making a point so the people who benefit from the legalization are the communities that are impacted. >> but they are never going -- katie: kevin isn't there a difference between legalizing marijuana and going a step further and using taxpayer money to subsidize those who want to get into the industry? >> absolutely. listen, there is a difference between an adult using a joint in the privacy of their own home and a massive industry being subsidized by government. the same number of african-american men were arrested this last year in denver, colorado, as were before legalization. arrests aren't going down for minority communities. in fact, when we look at youth arrests, especially in the beginning they were going up. nau the same number of african-american and hispanics are being arrested. this isn't about that. and, again, i know some people come in to it on the social justifiable side and i can understand.
3:28 am
the relate is this is about wall street fat cats and today's marijuana. we don't need to sub is i dyes it let's subsidize school and midnight basketball and programs not pot. katie: we reached out to bill de blasio's office to clarify where this would come from. they said a fund would be set up and from a portion of tax revenue from sales but not sure if it would be collected citywide or statewide until some kind of bill or legislation is constructed. jonathan harris and kevin sabet thank you for being here. >> thank you. katie: they treat some people who need it the most. some are questioning their safety. troubling new report is up next. if democrats keep the resistance and fund the border wall, will they own the shutdown. former congressman jason chaffetz here to discuss up next ♪ baby, baby ♪ you just ain't seen nothing yet ♪ here's something that you are never going

[cheers] >> that's another way of doing it now, we have to have it. pete: that's one approach. there you see it the count up clock five days six
3:32 am
hours, 30 minutes and 51 seconds. let's bring in jason chaffetz fox news contributor former u.s. congressman and author of the book the deep state. congressman, thanks for being here. >> thank you and happy new year and merry christmas. pete: all of the above. your reaction to the president being overseas with the troops. is he talking about the wall. if he didn't want it, nancy might want it. any movement on the shutdown? >> look, the democrats previously wanted it then donald trump showed up and said hey, i want to secure the border. democrats are in a precarious position. they want to abolish ice. they have been in favor of sanctuary cities. they say they want border security but can't define it the president wants a wall. and i think ultimately he is going to get a portion of the wall. remember, is he down from 25 billion down to now $5 billion. but, i think the president is on the right side. and i don't think the democrats can go into 2020 taking a position on abolishing ice, getting rid of the wall, you know, all of these things. i just don't see it and, let's try this novel idea.
3:33 am
let's just do what the border patrol agents want to do. because they want the wall. pete: that's a good point, jason, the president -- we talked about it yesterday. the president saying he has a contract underway building some 100 miles of texas border wall fence and noches says it's bead curtains. is he actually moving forward within the parameters that he president saying is he going to visit later in january to that spot where construction is going. at the end of the day, it is clear that the president has staked out a position from which he is immovable. not on the number, but on delivering the security that in border patrol officials want. how long is he willing to stay? >> i hope the president goes to the border as soon as possible. because, it's not just about a wall. what it's really about is thwarting human trafficking. it's about curbing the drug cartels. it's about slowing down this flow that's coming into this
3:34 am
country illegally. so, everything from drugs and human trafficking, all these things that we say we are against, but the democrats are actually -- if you don't want a wall, how is it that you think you are going to impede? and if nancy pelosi, to listen to her, says it's immoral, does that mean that she wants to take down the existing wall? let's have that fight and have that discussion. griff: keep that government shut down until there is movement on the side. >> there are numbers out there how big the shutdown are are very, very small. 75% of the government is funded through automatic spending. 75% of the discretionary budget is also funded. talking about something very small. have you noticed it yet? most people haven't. i feel for those federal workers but the president is right. he has got to hold the line and i think he will. katie: americawall is about american sovereignty. my question is nancy pelosi claims she has all this leverage because she is coming into a new congress with a majority. she thinks she is going to win the speakership. she likely will.
3:35 am
but does she risk going into a new congress with this shutdown and the base of the last left saying something like, look, we need to you start working on medicare for all. we want you to do all these other issues that you are not focused on but instead they are focused on beating donald trump at this 5 billion, 3 billion-dollar game when it comes to the fencing he is asking for. >> congress notoriously always gravitates to deadlines. between now and january 3rd she is somewhat irrelevant. only have to get to a majority in the house and republicans control it and they pass the bill. what's frustrating to me in the senate is that they won't vote. put these senators actually on the record. let's see who actually when it comes time to actually vote, actually vote against it and who votes for it let's see who is on which side of this fight. pete: you are exactly right. force that measure. what happens when nancy pelosi becomes speaker? what happens next? >> then you have the state of the union. between the time we have a new speaker and the state of the union, they do not want to sit there and listen to the president for an hour or two on a national televised
3:36 am
audience go out and make that discussion. i think they will strike some deal between then. griff: you know it's going to hard to make progress. do you put daca on the table to sweeten it to get democrats to move. >> the president has already gone way out there on this. i think the president needs to pound on that daily basis the moral imperative to build the wall and to curb all these negative things that are coming without a wall. and i would also just on a daily basis say let's do what our law enforcement wants to do. let's do what the border patrol wants to do. they want the wall. pete: bully pulpit might be the biggest leverage. katie: you sat down with sam johnson. going to give us a preview of that now and look at the entire thing later in the show jason jason congressman sam johnson beloved american hero. he is one of the longest serving prisoner of wars in the history of our nation

talking about it right now just like this. that it's actually a health crisis. it's not a political crisis if you were to lookin look at it politically. you have to say the united states has a long history of screening people. i can show you pictures from ellis island where we are looking for tuberculosis. doctors that didn't even know what to do with it. now we have the medical ability to treat these diseases but we have to have the ability to physicians and nurses in place to do. so it's a humanitarian crisis. it's a disgrace to actually blame this on can you say tomb and border protection. what do they have to do with it? they are doing tremendous work down there. katie: department of homeland security screening inside their shelters. >> that's a good point. i don't think we know what's going on. katie: i don't think we do. how disease can spread more ramp padgettly when you have a large group of people who aren't in the best sanitary conditions we have seen in tijuana. the shelters in mexico as you just said we don't know what's going on. shelters in the united

griff: the trump administration is attempting to overhaul the nation's food stamp program by expanding work requirements for recipients. katie: georgia one of the first states to enforce kicking 8,000 people off food stamps after determining those recipients as unemployed able-bodied adults capable of working. pete: some in the left wing media slamming the move with headlines like these. trump plans to make people work for food stamps. novel idea. here to react fox news contributor and editor in chief lawrence jones. first of all, congrats. >> thank you. pete: the novel idea if you are able-bodied you should work before you receive government benefits. >> this was a law already in place. it came back way before the clinton administration. but during the clinton administration took that away they never implemented it back. what this law requires you to do is at least work 20 hours, get some form of
3:54 am
education or at least show that you can work, that you -- all these people get on the system and they stay on it. this was the discourage that get them involved in the process. actually look for a job so they don't be dependent on this program. katie: isn't having work requirements for welfare or food stamps, however you want to benefit from it whether it's housing or something else, doesn't that enable people to get out of poverty rather than stay in it? >> i know a lot of people on the left want to trap people in this because they will have their voting base and they don't have to work to actually focus on the issues that effect average day americans. the fact of the matter is. this a lot of the policy that affected my community personally many of the people in my community end up staying on these programs because it's a trap. it's a government trap to keep them in there. that's why the original program was to allow people to have some form of assistance. get a leg up and not be trapped on it forever.
3:55 am
griff: that's the facts of it as pete mentioned in his headlines earlier. what is the media doing? why are they getting it wrong? >> they are playing anti-trump game. it came before trump. the fact of the matter is the president just now enforcing the law. chicago, illinois -- chicago illinois, louisiana is one of those main -- some of those states are still fighting against it and georgia was as well. they are one of the first states to start this, at the end of the day, this is a federal law that was in place way before trump was there. katie: is it insulting people to tell people they shouldn't have to work for food stamps. >> insulting and you have to question the motive. why do you want people to stay on a federal system? that means that you are sometimes at minimum wage in poverty level or below the poverty level. why would you want people to stay on the system? many people on those programs have to question those government officials who have advocating. pete: if i'm right, you used to be a democrat. >> i did. i was poor, too.
3:56 am
pete: you saw it differently. why did you change the way you see the world. >> at the end of the day, i wanted to be helpful as a democrat. when you start seeing the traps of the left where they try to keep you down never aspect of your life. they feel like just because of the color of your skin or socioeconomic status that you can't succeed and you need government to do that that gets frustrating as somebody that came from a mother that had him at 16 and taught hard work by his mother and father i couldn't be a leftist anymore. it didn't align with the values i was taught in my home. griff: is the left playing politics with not only low income people but also elderly people. >> yeah. they are playing politics but they also are playing a financial game this is not typical politics you see day to day. this is saying i'm going to keep you down. every american that are on these programs. i'm not saying should get rid of them. congress would never pass that this is something that shouldn't be permanent. give you a leg up not just a

[chanting u.s.a.] [cheers and applause] pete: you can't fake that. that was impromptu u.s.a. chant from the troop there overseas in iraq. a lot of them had maga hats, red hats which you are allowed to have the in the military last time i checked. you are a free citizen. a lot of criticism for that. katie: the president just returned and tweeted about his trip. tweeting just returned from visiting our troops in iraq and germany. we have incredible people
4:03 am
representing our country. people that know how to win. he received a roaring applause when he walked in that room. melania trump, first lady was there as well. her first trip to iraq with the troops and she seemed to love it as she was smiling, taking selfies with the troops. with the president. she sat on stage with him as he gave his speech to them about 20 minutes. we saw them land at joint base andrews around 5:15 a.m. and they are now back at the white house. griff: besides boosting morale, pete, which you know about the impact of it he also delivered a message. this is the commander-in-chief standing, physically looking at the war fighters, the leaders, the heroes on the front lines. this is what he had to say to them. >> america shouldn't be doing the fighting for every nation on earth not being reimbursed in many cases at all. if they want us to do the fighting they also have to pay a price. and sometimes that's also a
4:04 am
monetary price so we are not the suckers of the world. we are no longer the suckers, folks. and people aren't looking at us as suckers and i love you, folks, because most of you are nodding your head this way. pete: very different message than i was used to hearing than other commander-in-chiefs have delivered. it's usually we are going to find and follow them to every quarter and corner of the earth. that's true. you want to kill every terrorist that wishes you ill. this is a very different message which is, listen, we are 17 years after 9/11. we want to kill terrorists. they should not attack us here. we can't do everything. we can't be everywhere. i want to use you in the most effective way possible. sometimes it's iraq. in his mind not syria anymore. sometimes it's afghanistan. ultimately our alliances should matter. they should be meaningful. we are not going to be suckers. details to that that could have implications, katie. you and i have been talking about this all morning long
4:05 am
off camera. debate will be. troops resonate with the commander-in-chief that says i'm going to use you. katie: i would take one issue in the sense you say we can't be everywhere. i would argue that the united states and president trump has made this we can be everywhere. we have the best military in the world. the point he is making is we are not going to do the job that other countries should be doing for themselves especially in the middle east where even our allies there haven't been picking up the slack they should when it comes to fighting terrorism and making sure their best interest was there yesterday i thought it was very important when he talked about how we are not leaving iraq and if isis decides that they are going to try to have a resurgence in syria as we pull the troops out of there, we will continue to attack them from that location. griff: not only is it a new strategy but usually this is done differently. usually the president will make a visit and an announce 789. this is trump he did it differently. the message is that the strategy is different as you mentioned and we talked to general anthony tata in the last hour and he says this
4:06 am
is a strategy that's working. the military lone wolves our president and rightfully so. the president supports the military so well. he puts his money where his mouth is and also his doctrine of chasing terrorists where they are and not getting involved in enduring entanglements. he is executing that strategy. and this is, you know, the convict essential civilian control of the military. when this charge, be in charge. there is no question that that president trump is in charge. griff: you know, as we see all those troops cheering and chanting u.s.a. the military press what people are saying quotes from one of the airmen saying i'm just at a loss of words right now. truly amazing experience. i even took a selfie of melania as she touched me on my arm. i told her it is an honor. pete: that guy won't be washing his arm.

4:08 am
he hadn't gone and he was in the air. pete: poor me in the white house turns out he wasn't. griff: joe biden is reportedly upset president obama is checking out other 2020 hopefuls. pete: headline in vanity fair. check out this headline. democrats don't like to be told who to vote for. obama has flirted with beto and other potential 2020 rivals and biden is upset. what's beto's first name again? katie: robert francis o'rourke. pete: i refuse to say beto if i don't have to. biden was obama's vice president. he was supposed to follow him. in now obama is looking around. kind of looking around the room saying who else might be there? could the bromance be over, katie? katie: they always say if you want a friend in washington to get a dog. apparently all the dedication that joe biden has shown president barack obama maybe didn't necessarily pay off he's looks around for other candidates. new polling shows that
4:09 am
democrats, we're asking them if they're excited for 2020. new polling shows that 59% say that they want someone entirely new. joe biden is still at the top of the ticket for them. pete: 53 is a big number. katie: it is a big number. griff: anybody but you. katie: who do they want new out of that bunch. pete: what they don't want an even bigger number democrats think by 70% hillary clinton should not run by president in 2020. so they say they don't want hillary, although if the field is muddy, some have said maybe she will jump in at the last minute. joe biden clearly at the front of the pack he feels like he can take on trump. obama is looking around with a wandering eye. katie: somebody young and hip. pete: is he always looking for someone young and hip. not biden somebody on a skateboard. katie: i don't know. we have to see.

4:17 am
harm's way. i'm sure i don't care and officers don't care might run affair of any military rules. i will tell you this. nothing that trump does will ever make many in the mainstream media happy. they decided from day one they were going to be the opposition party. they are going to be the opposition party. every little thing that they can find they are going to attack trump on. he will could bring about world peace, griff, and they are still going to go after him. griff: ned, i want to play for you a quick -- i traveled to iraq numerous times. one of them with the uso tour. it's remarkable what visits like this make. none more powerful than one by a commander-in-chief. listen to the reception quickly that the president got at germany. [cheers] [chanting u.s.a.] griff: u.s.a. you can't manufacture that that isn't a core disqualified moment. yet, the media is so quick

to say that it was not real. >> and this is, again one of those things you are thinking here these men and women are thousands of miles away from home at christmas time. the president and first lady go to travel to see them on this day tone courage them and be with them and let them know they are not alone and we remember them and thank them for their service. here to celebrate a big holiday with them. this is spontaneous. they are so grateful. you can tell from the troops they are so grateful that the president took the time to come visit them and to show them that they are not forgotten, that their service is not forgotten. the media all they can do is attack, attack attack, it's absurd and ridiculous. expect it to continue every day trump is in office. griff: the commander-in-chief shows um in office physically supporting them. what should the public take away from this? we know what the media took. >> here's the fact, griff, many in america have looked at the media and pushing fake news.

look at the polls from gallup. 72% of americans consider them very trustworthy about 40 years ago 40% consider them trustworthy now. many americans are seeing through the media's bias. they understand these are aren't reporters or journalists. they are political operatives mass can a raiding as journalists. they are pushing a narrative that might or might not have anything to do with the troops. griff: not everybody got it wrong. it wasn't a campaign rally but airmen here weren't shy about showing their support for president donald trump and melania. ned ryun, thank you for joining us. >> thanks, griff. griff: all right. coming up. one state thought legalizing marijuana would be a cash cow. their plans went up in smoke thanks to democrats. and everyone can relate to this story. a porch pirate picked the wrong home to rob. the woman who chased the thief in this viral video joins us live. that's coming up next. watch this. >> i got you on camera [bleep] give me that [bleep] thing now. i'm taping you. >> i didn't take anything. >> yes, you did.

so i think the most important thing for individuals to do is to collect themselves. you don't have to try to navigate these day-to-day swings. collect yourself and make sure you don't make decisions now you will regret months from now. certainly years from now. pete: you are still bullish we see all the economic prognosticators say we might be headed for a recession. what's your view going forward? >> it's interesting. i'm comparing what we are going through right now to 1987. october 18th, 1987, the one day drop. the biggest one day dropped in the his visit market the dow was off 22 points. i had just become a broker two years before that less than two years. i'm thinking my career is over. i mean halfway through the session i go to the bar. i grab a beer. i walk back. how did we close? someone tells me i wanted to go back and i had to go upstairs and make phone calls. i learned a vulnerable lesson. it didn't predict a recession it didn't come for three years. ultimately the market made a run over the next two decades mind boggling it changed people's minds if
4:34 am
they didn't panic. griff: despite attempts to do otherwise. story we are looking at now, the consumer confidence is tells a different story than what we are seeing in these day-to-day slides. >> consumer confidence is is remarkable. last friday the university of michigan came out with their number far better than wall street anticipated. not just the surveys. it's action. we see the holiday sales. at least the best in six years. amazon having its best selling period ever. consumers are two thirds of this economy. i don't think we are going to go into recession next year and perhaps not even in 2020. let the dust settle. but, please, if you are -- if you are a couple raising kids. you are 40 years old, don't panic and try not to pay attention to people who are trying to push this market around for ulterior motives there are a lot of folks out there want this market to go down. they don't want the administration to be successful. things like that. they have big mega phones. make sure you are getting

thank you, jillian. appreciate it president trump and first lady melania back at the white house this morning following a surprise visit overseas to meet with the troops in iraq and germany. the commander-in-chief taking the stage, praising our military, defending his plan to pull troops out of syria. >> we're in their region. they should be really sharing the burden of costs and they are not. now they are going to be doing it. and, if they don't, they will go in and go in to places like turkey and russia and iran and iraq and lots of other places. these people are going to have to start doing a lot of their own work and they are going to have to start paying for it. the united states cannot continue to be the policemen of the world. pete: joining us now fox news contributor and former cia station chief who served in moscow and iraq and pakistan daniel hoffman. thanks for being here. merry christmas, we appreciate you being here. >> same to you. pete: your reaction to the president's visit to iraq and syria. >> i think the visit was
4:46 am
great morale boost not just our troops but embassy staff also serving in harm's way in iraq. it's an opportunity for our country team to brief the president. he is walking the ground and he can learn a lot about the situation the challenges we face there. and i think that's critically important for the president going forward as he makes policy. and then also it's a chance for the president to deliver his commander's intent to everyone in country so they understand his vision for iraq and the region and beyond. pete: did it surprise you he announces his decision on syria and then going there as o?>> i might have been surprised except for president trump doesn't do things the way other presidents have. other presidents might have collected all the facts from a visit to the region and then made policy. in this case the president had his own ideas about 2,000 troop contingent from syria and then he went off to iraq to explain that and
4:47 am
manage that with our team there. pete: got a big resessions as well. >> he did. pete: troops clearly in support of this commander-in-chief. at the end of the year we will do a lot of look back. big year of summits for president trump. what do you think 2019 is going to look like? he was meeting with key adversaries in 2018 whether north korea kim jong un, erdogan in turkey. xi jay pin gin jinping in china. >> none of those strong men have any political pressure. maybe a balance of power because they're concerned about military or intelligence services. but they certainly don't face the political pressures that our president faces at home. each of those countries wishes to be seen as dealing with the united states in a level playing field. i think this administration has succeeded particularly on china and building bipartisan consensus to take a strong policy dealing with
4:48 am
china's american till trade practices, espionage, it theft. we recognize china is a major theft and russia. i think the president will probably continue to hold summits. it's important for him to get his experts in the room so they can follow up on the key issues. pete: daniel, north korea, kim jong un is there another meeting coming up in your opinion and what actually constitutes success and progress? >> so i think there probably will be another meeting. what we have seen and we have seen overarching framework but we haven't seen north korea provide inventory of nuclear weapons or icbms or timetable for their destruction. the president needs to make that contingent for meeting going forward. i think north korea would like to have a meeting and they want to break our fragile economic sanctions russia, china certainly not helping us there south korea would like to on the
4:49 am
economic front as well. kim jong un wants maximum economic game while giving up as little as possible towards denuclearization. pete: that is one to pay attention to no doubt. >> for sure. pete: another one is turkey and erdogan. more predictable as islamist. president trump believes he will take the fight to isis. counts me as skeptical. where are you? >> yeah, i'm skeptical like you are. turkey had lots of opportunities going back to when the civil war began in syria almost 8 years ago. to mount some -- to mount some military operations to stem the tide of isis fighters entering syria through their country and didn't do it. they had their own interest at heart and primarily focused on dealing with the syria democratic forces made up of kurds and off shoot of kkk. they are a nato ally. i think this administration would like to approach turkey we struggled with them. i agree with you. i think it's going to be a
4:50 am
great challenge. pete: nato ally. sometimes it feels like in name only. we will see. daniel hoffman, thank you very much for your time appreciate it. >> thank you. pete: one of the bright highlights of the kavanaugh confirmation hearing. >> this is the most unethical sham since i have been in politics. pete: top of 2018 coming up. pete: looking for ways to keep your kids busy on christmas break? how about making a glitter volcano if you want to clean it up. the easy science experiments you can do at home ♪ wild thing ♪

4:54 am
pour a bottle of glue or get one of these large glue containers and pour about half a cup of glue in there. this is a gallon of elmer's school glue. in this container right here. i like to put it in tupper wear or something. we can eyeball it because it's an experiments. >> exact amount. >> that's totally fine. >> and then we will do one tablespoon of saline solution. some say use bore rocks which is toxic to use saline solution. use a quarter teaspoon of baking soda. mix that right in there and start mixing it all up. >> if you wanted put like colorful glue in there. and then. katie: green with the grinch spatula going on. >> or go with the glue that has the glitter inside. get those at michaels. you guys are mixing it up. this is how it comes together. griff: how is it not messy?
4:55 am
>> kind of slimy and sticky. my trick is to use foam shaving cream into the slime and then it makes it more of a like a play dough consistency and less of a slimy consistency. katie: what's going on over here? >> also baking soda. so, what i have done here is actually just took baking soda. probably about a third of a cup. but it depends on how big the container is. to that you will add. we're going to add glitter. and then we are going to add some -- whatever colorful glitter you might have. we are making a glitter volcano. katie: put purple in there, too. >> i'm going to put the red food coloring back there. griff: is there a flammable explosion concern here. >> no. >> put white vinegar into the baking soda. you can do it. go ahead. it is all that experimenting. stand back. you don't know how big the explosion might come out. this. >> this is why you use

plastic. this is a lit so there is no mess. >> exactly. i use one of those. griff: that's the key, pete, no mess. >> glue down here. >> inflate balloons with vinegar and baking soda. i didn't have a funnel, i cut the top of a water bottle filled up baking soda into the balloon. however much can you fill into the balloon. we will pour it right in and it's going to start inflating the balloon. you will do that one. and it's going to start inflating. pour it all in. and then it's going to start inflating. griff: she standing back. that's our visual cue watch out. >> inflating the balloon. if you wanted you could put food color in there, too. katie: i saw earlier milk into the lids with food coloring. >> whole milk. food coloring. and took dish deter jengt what you do is put it on top and comes like really cool tie dye effect.
4:57 am
katie: basic food coloring. >> basic dish detergent that you would have. pete: look at that. >> isn't that fun? i have a 4-year-old this is mind blowing. katie: food coloring. white vinegar baking soda. >> baking soda, vinegar, glue, shaving cream. saline solutions. things you probably have around the house. griff: people can make a mess at their home where do they go. >> go to follow me on instagram and i will put them on there. griff: thank you very much. katie: not that messy. you just proved it. griff: the sun is coming up. we will be back with more of that coming up. there is the capitol. . .

5:02 am
they were writing headlines before he was. there i don't know how far in advance. made the announcement about syria, made the announcement about afghanistan. very dedicated to the fact we shouldn't be there forever. he visited the troops. you hear people pontificate how the troops respond. commander-in-chief says we'll come home from syria or pull back from afghanistan, if you want to to for yourself, this is how the presidents reacted to the president in al assad in iraq.

he tweeted earlier in the day, look i respect the troops. they're there to win it. showing american strength. having a couple phone calls with local iraqi military leaders and went on to germany to visit troops there. griff: as well as boosting the morale of the troops, this is a conflict we've been in in the case of iraq for 15 years. i made many trips, one on a uso tour to witness morale and us a chants. this is at a time when the troops may be questioning some of these decisions. telling them this is my plan, why i'm doing it, this was them, sailors, airmen, marines, gave up so much blood and treasure to be there. calling them patriots. here is what he had to say to the people that matter most. >> the courageous men and women at al-asad airbase are on the leading edge to vanquish our
5:04 am
american terrorist enemies. two years ago when i became president, they were a very dominant group, they were very dominant. today they're not so dominant anymore.

5:05 am
stands, he or she, ultimately what they want the mission to look like. that is what troops respond to, sit in front of me, look me in the eye, tell me we should be here or shouldn't be there. once we're there or not there, give me the tools i need to win. exactly why isis is crushed today. was flourishing under obama. they were dithering and half-measures. we'll see how it plays out. we don't really know, but troops appreciate a clear mission that says, i'm there for you. your son, your daughter there, i have their back. i'm not worried about the syrians. i'm not worried about the iraqis those are all important academic discussions to be had i care for a lot of guys i served with. i care for the americans that serve. griff: 5200 troops in iraq. where they are, president at al-assad, you're about 100 miles west of baghdad. directly in the path where the syrian troops were withdrawn. we talked to general anthony
5:06 am
tata earlier today, here is what he said about the president's strategy. >> the military loves our president and rightfully so because our president supports military, so well. he puts his money where his mouth is. also his doctrine of chasing terrorists where they are. and not getting involved in enduring entanglements. he is executing that strategy. this is the quintessential civilian control of the military. when in charge, be in charge. there is no question that president trump is in charge. katie: when in charge be in charge, absolutely. this came at an important time. the president was due for a trip overseas to visit the troops. it came right after general james mattis submitted his resignation. he is popular also with the troops all over the world. and so came at a time where leadership was necessary. the president stepped up, went into iraq yesterday and talked about the syria strategy, defended it, and made sure
5:07 am
people know, look we're keeping 5000 troops in iraq. we have no plans to take them out. we'll stay. we continue to fight isis, although we taken their territorial caliphate back but we continue to fight them. and asking allies in the region and people maybe not so much allies to fight. pete: bingo. it is nato mission. who goes outside the wire, kills bad guys, everyone else, australians, canadians, others do some things. they stay on the base with lovely flags and talk about the mission. americans go do the mission. experts in washington talk about the nato alliance. you don't have an alliance if people don't fight with you. that is what trump is seeing. griff: media says something different. >> signing a camp hat, red hat.
5:08 am
make america great hat. does this run the risk the president is turning some of this into a campaign stop? >> the question is, if they brought them or the president brought them, what commander allowed that to really happen. this is very much against military policy and regulation. >> every time he is around military audiences, tends to politicize. brings in complaints and grievances outside the military are policy. >> the president seemed to confuse this troop visit with a campaign rally, raising things like the border wall, things he has done for them. pete: yeah. katie: very confused what they want here. so on christmas day a number of headlines criticizing the president for not going overseas yet to a war zone, combat zone so visit troops. when he makes this surprise visit this was the response. there were a number of u.s. troops there who had maga hats in their lockers, brought them with them. maybe had them sent to them. the white house is not handing them out for the president to
5:09 am
sign. this was genuine organic request they were making when he was there. pete: we hate how popular the president is. that is fact. one had a flag. mostly have what you want shipped from u.s., if you're deployed. the troops support the commander-in-chief. if you were clicking around the internet, there is website starts with c and ends with this is one of the headlines, troops bringing trump hats to sign may violate military rule. katie: prosecute them all. pete: something they care about the uniform code of military justice. griff: unbelievable how much they missed the point. resignation of jim mattis is significant. he led the first marine division into afghanistan after 9/11. he led the first marine division in iraq in 2003. he was there. he is unquestioned leadership in the current age of the war on terror. if they see maga hats something
5:10 am
that needs to be discussed in the focus put upon it, the president went to reassure the troops about the mission, to keep them steady and to reassure them, stand in front of them, listen you may be worried, you may have questions, whether you're in kabul or anbar this is what they see, red maga hats. katie: nedry one, former president bush speechwriter says the troops are grateful. >> nothing whatever trump does will make the mainstream media. they decided from day one they will be opposition party. they are going to be the opposition party. every little thing they will find, you can tell from the troops they're so grateful that the president took time to come visit them, show them they're not forgotten, that the service is noter to gotten. all the media can do is attack, attack, it is so ridiculous.

5:17 am
obstruction from the democrats. griff: here to weigh in, gop senator from louisiana bill cassidy. what will happen in washington? merry christmas by the way. >> merry christmas, happy holidays. not much is happening in washington. ultimately the president needs to sign a bill. schumer needs 10 votes to pass in the senate. then they finish their deliberations. hopefully schumer decides we need security on u.s.-mexican border we can go to work. katie: democrats act like they have a ton of leverage in the fight, considering 75% of the most government programs are funded for the long term, what are the real stakes of the shutdown? is it really as high as it has been portrayed? >> it is not -- look, not in terms of the government functioning but absolutely in terms of securing the southern border. hopefully the leverage that is going to be exerted by either side is how we secure the
5:18 am
u.s.-mexican border and we don't have caravans of thousands of folks coming every other month to enter our country illegally. that is the leverage. hopefully schumer will respond to that. griff: senator, no doubt how this ultimately ends will determine whether or not it is a pull factor if more caravans come but let me ask you this, we seem to be stuck. 25% of the government is shut down, talking about .3 of 1% of deficit spending. democrats 1.3 billion, 5 billion from the president. will they mead in the middle and negotiate to get results for the american people? >> you frame it perfectly. it shouldn't be hard to get to where the president wants to be. democrats voted for 25 billion for border security earlier this year. in 2006, obama voted for border security. not as if this is a foreign concept f you just look again at the caravan's approaching with the drugs and human trafficking, it shouldn't be a hard sell to
5:19 am
their voters. so, you're asking me, will schumer move? i don't know that. i don't know his mind. should he move? absolutely. it won't be nearly as far as they were before. i think it would be good for our country. griff: you raise a great point. 25 billion was voted before the caravans. we get the highlight what is happening at the border. is anything less than five billion which is move from 25 as you pointed out, senator, is anything less than five billion a loss for those who believe the wall is important? >> no. i think we have to get this bit by bit by bit. there will be some places, hot spots that we can secure. next we secure the new hot spot. so i think it would be nice to have the 25 billion long-term commitment. but on the other hand this problem is not going away. we need to secure that border. there will always be the pressure, oh, my gosh, here is several thousand more folks bringing drugs and human trafficsing but otherwise good people but they're coming here
