tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News July 17, 2019 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT
he said -- well he said there's a lot of talk about the fact that she married to her brother. i know nothing about him. how the national media has largely ignored the story and mocked the president for even bringing this up, but we will not. while, the president mentioned something that's a little bit uncomfortable, but i wonder why no curious media never follows up on immigration fraud, charges, or accusations. no, we will just take her word for it, but the president never get that benefit of that out. mike emanuel, the "fox news @ night" team, take it all from her. mike. >> mike: thank you, laura. it would begin a fox news alert. if president trump -- taking time to blast each progress of congresswoman for past controversial comments. is this the ticket to electoral success? that tonight. the squad warning speaker pelosi about singling out women of color just a day after condemning a president, why are they focusing again on the democratic leadership? and it looks like some members
of the d.c. swamp will be relocating to colorado. major federal agency announcing the move. we will ask a call about a republican if this is just the beginning of an effort to drain the swamp. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night," i'm mike emanuel in for shannon bream. we start with north carolina with david's pond on the president's focus on "the squad" and impeachment tonight. good evening, david. >> good evening to you from greenville, north carolina, in pitt county. a big crowd here to see president trump. he spoke for just over an hour and a half, just over 90 minutes in just seconds after getting on stage, he addressed the fact that the house of representatives failed to pass articles of impeachment earlier this evening. listen. >> i just heard that the united states house of representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project i've ever been involved in, the
resolution -- how stupid is that -- on impeachment. i want to thank those democrats, because many of them voted for us. >> then the president called out the four congresswoman who call themselves "the squad" and called the president a racist. one congresswoman, ayanna pressley, called him "the occupant of the white house." the president mentioned each of the congresswoman by name but repeatedly called out representative ilhan omar from minnesota. >> obviously and importantly, omar has a history of launching vicious anti-semitic -- >> what you're hearing there, mike, the crowd repeatedly chanting "send her back." that is significant because that's what caused the president to find himself answering two calls of racism in the first place over the past few days. on sunday president trump's of
the four congresswoman should go back to their countries if they are not happy here in the united states. three of them were born in the united states. omar was not, but she became a citizen in 2000. yesterday the house passed a resolution condemning the president's remarks. the president then went on to attack his 2020 opponents on topics like border security and the economy. >> a vote for any democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the american dream. frankly, the destruction of our country. >> listen to that word socialism, president trump will continue to use that word on the campaign trail trying to connect all of the 2020 democratic presidential candidates with the word socialism, though if you have just admitted to being socialist -- a democratic socialist. president trump admits north carolina is a state he needs to win. back in 2016 he won the state by just over 3.5% and it's no
coincidence, mike, that the republican national convention is in charlotte, north carolina, a year from now. back to you. >> mike: david's pond leading us off in battleground north carolina, thanks a lot. it leaves one member of the so-called squad taking to twitter tonight after president trump last of the progressive members of congress during tonight's rally. the squad is also keeping its feud with house speaker nancy pelosi alive.
our chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher is on the case for us tonight. good evening, trace. >> good evening, mike. as david was saying it is more to, north carolina, president trump went after the so-called squad, criticizing the four freshman members of congress, but so far there has been no response from alexandria ocasio-cortez, rashida tlaib or ayanna pressle ayanna pressley. only ilhan omar has responded. if she retweeted former obama speech writer who said that 1 criticized omar he was horrified to hear, as you heard earlier, the crowd chanted "center back." omar quoted my angelo sang "you may shoot me with your words.
you may cut me with your eyes. you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, i will rise." and today on cbs this morning, the entire squad went after the president. watch. >> this is a man who has deep-seated animosity and hatred, who feels so small. who works so hard
to make others feel beneath him. and so i think it is even ludicrous for us to have the space to dignify what he says with an answer. >> respect for the oval office. the president of the united states the occupant. >> he is only occupying the space. he does not embody the principles, the responsibility, the grace, the integrity of a true president, and so for that reason, i'm not dishonoring the office, he does, every day. he dishonors it.
it's because they also took a few swings at house speaker nancy pelosi for singling them out saying policy needs to be more cognizant of their ethnicity, ethnicity. look. >> acknowledged the fact that we are women of color so when you do single us out, especially because some of us are getting death threats, some of us are being singled out in many ways because of our backgrounds, because of our experiences and so forth. >> inheres alexandria ocasio-cortez when she was asked about being told that she needs to learn d.c. >> but not just me but the entire freshman class i would argue regardless of ideology was sent here because americans are sick of how washington works, so why would i learn a broken playbook? >> it doesn't sound like you're going to change the way you do business. >> this is what our district want to. >> this is our moment. >> so it appears they plan to
use every opportunity to challenge the president along with their own party leaders. mike. >> mike: trace gallagher, thanks very much. president trump unveils the new slogan apparently trolling most four progressive congresswoman known as "the squad" ." ♪ >> mike: joining me now, leslie marshall and karl rove. great to have both of you. >> hi, mike, good to be here. >> mike: take a look at president trump on most four freshman congresswoman and i will ask you to respond. >> yesterday they went on the stage, i said let me watch this and the anger. the choice for every american has never been more clear. that's true.
the democrat agenda is antiworker, anti-jobs, anti-citizen, antifamily, and anti-common sense. >> mike: does that work is a 2020 campaign pitch, angry democrats against him, carl? >> it does as long as you keep putting out -- "the squad" in front of the camera. i watch the news conference. i was a little taken aback i'm a congresswoman presley started off by saying he is xenophobic, racist and a bigot, but let's not take the bait and engage in the same kind of language that he engages in and then spend much of the rest of her time talking about how president trump was deliberately subjecting immigrant children along the border to trauma, childhood trauma. these deliberately traumatizing these young people who are in these conditions at these detention facilities along the border. it was like a little bit of disconnect. let me call him a bunch of names and then let's say we are not going to call him names and limits on the rest of my time talking about something where i'm ascribing to him a deliberate attempt to
traumatized children. and that's the way they are. tomorrow i've got my column in "the wall street journal." i was taken aback when last week aoc comes out and says let's get rid of the whole department of homeland security. she was asked you're in favor of getting rid of ice and she said i want to get rid of old apartment, and her interviewer, david remick of the new yorker said don't you mean reformat and she said no, i'm in favor of getting rid of it all. jaw-dropping to me, really get rid of it. people ought to be able to go and get on airplanes and carry box cutters that people ought to be able to come across the border without any border security, we shouldn't have any bio weapons defense measures put in place. we shouldn't have preparedness for emergencies and response? so many things the department of homeland security does that keeps us safe and there is aoc, the star of "the squad" out there saying something that i think most americans would sort of shake their head out and say who are you? >> mike: check out that. leslie, i want to play a clip from msnbc earlier today and get your reaction.
>> if there was one strategy in 2016 2016 that president trump and his campaign wanted to do and we will probably see again is just muddy it up. how it is uglier raised as possible. socialism, "the squad," everyone, throw everything against the wall and hope that the press is kind of democratic turnout. >> do you think the president is trying to muddy it up? >> absolutely. it's actually been very effective for him. it would seem after this you see his approval rating go up, you see more republicans united against him -- i mean with him and not against him. after he did send them back. and in 2016, if you are a member, he personally attacked every single opponent of his in the republican party, became the nominee, became president, and democrats were saying when they go low, we go high, and we lost. i'm not saying we should go low, necessarily, but i think there are those that want to fight fire with fire. to some of karl's points we have to member that this squad of
four freshman female congressional members who were elected by their district and their constituents, are not the majority of democrats or voters, not the majority of the party, don't speak for the party, as you often hear speaker pelosi try to put out the gun when you look at a recent axios poll, they may have high numbers with recognition, name recognition, but they have very rural low rating among those swing state voters and democrats are very cognizant of that, especially the speaker. >> mike: the other issue is that they've been slugging it out, the squad, with speaker nancy pelosi. karl, to the president make a strategic mistake by getting in the middle of their fight? >> well, there's a question of timing, but look, i agree with -- i agree that they are not a representative of what most democrats are about, but they're dominating the coverage and that's one of the points of my column. who knows what the democrats in the house have attempted to do since they took the majority. they have been, first of all,
overshadowed by the calls for impeachment, and now they are being overshadowed by "the squad" and "the squad" is having an effect. who would've thought that a year ago every democrat on that stage in the debate would have raised their hand and say yeah, i'm in favor of free health care for illegal aliens. who would've thought that the vast majority of democrats running for president this year would say i'm in favor for medicare of all and that means taking care of -- taking away private health care, health insurance. to the detriment of the democratic party but it's hard to get them off the stage. >> mike: thanks very much. the g.o.p. decrying -- wilbur ross in criminal contempt as political theater. to trump administration top officials are stonewalling congressional probes. bernie sanders sounding unhappy with a lot of things semi, like his media coverage, one
candidate who should be very happy tonight is senator kamala harris. she is surging in a brand-new california pole. where sanders let it rip. >> bernie sanders believes that in the 2016 primary, the system -- some on the team are wondering if 2020 is too. >> i understand that change gives people a little bit nervous. >> behind the scenes the democratic socialist senators strategists feel like they've been counted out even though he's pulling solidly in the top tier and a favorite of small dollar grass-roots donors. campaign advisor, "we will never be the same to my favorites in the media, i get it but one with last one of these pundits visited a field office or talked to a state director? "sanders campaign hasn't changed his stump speech very much since the last time he ran for president while joe biden is
overhauling his campaign trail talk. new financial expenditures show that the day after a difficult debate debut joe biden shelled out more than $5,000 to hire high-profile democratic speech coach and he's testing out new lines in iowa at at the next debate. >> we can overcome four years of donald trump. >> biden is still the man to beat in national polls, but he's number two in a quinnipiac poll of voters and super tuesday's treasure trove of delicates, california, behind kamala harris, who like joe biden is concentrating most of her attacks on trump. >> he needs to go back where he came from and leave that office. >> harris is ahead of biden, sanders and elizabeth warren but trailing pete buttigieg and golden state donations by half a million dollars according to a review by mcclatchy. mayor pete and most of the field are using that money to build out early state operations, but nobody running at 2020, including biden, has ever done what bernie sanders did last cycle.
people he hopes he can count on again. >> my republican friends, and some others, seem to think that the american people hate paying taxes, but they just love paying insurance premiums. the insurance premium is here. what a wonderful day. >> it's hard to get hundreds of people to listen intently to 45 minutes worth of health care policy remarks what with bernie sanders dated here today and he also did something he's been doing a recent event that is very hard in such a crowded primary field, and that is inspire supporters to show up decked out in sanders gear hours before the start time in the middle of a weekday. mike. >> mike: peter doocy in washington here tonight, thanks. billionaires democratic so it done my candidate tom fost ira, had a fire for being rich and hot tops tonight 2020 and 60. he defends his personal wealth and questions whether we should limit beyonce's wealth.
he claims there should not be assuming on how far people can go. actress and #metoo advocate alyssa milano is turning out for her plan to attend a fund-raiser for 2020 hopeful marianne williamson. first of the election cycle. she took to twitter to say "i know. i know. but she's the only candidate talk about the collective soulful ache of the nation and i think that's an important discussion to have." bernie sanders' 2016 campaign manager is calling bluff on kamala harris for her claim that she would implement medicare for all without a tax increase. on msnbc jeff weaver said harris will need unicorns and magic wands to pay for her promise, and that's from the socialist wing of the party. the dnc is warning presidential candidates against using the popular face app. at the photo editing app that ages your photos. if the app was developed by russians. security experts warn the app gives access to personal photos. breaking his neck from san juan within a progressive governor is

>> i withdrew the united states from the horrible one-sided, disgusting iran nuclear deal and iran is a different country today. >> mike: president trump tonight touting his foreign policy and reportedly signing off on a proposal from senator rand paul, who wants to travel to iran in an attempt to reduce skyrocketing tensions. if this comes as iran's foreign minister accuses the trump administration of economic terrorism. kristin fisher is here with the latest.
good evening. >> good evening. senator rand paul's office is not commenting on this report in politico that president trump signed off on his proposal to try to reduce tensions with iran by sitting down with the country's foreign minister, but if it turns out to be true, it would be a step towards diplomacy between two countries that have been close to being on the brink of war. >> i'm really proud of president trump for showing restraint. it really makes a statesman to show restraint amidst a chorus of voices for war. >> that was rand paul's response to president trump calling off those military strikes against iran in june. the senator has also been a vocal -- maximum pressure, which has put him at odds with the more hawkish national security advisor john bolton and secretary of state mike pompeo. >> iranian regime is struggling to figure out what they're going to do with their economy because we've been terribly effective. >> but the kentucky
senator argues those punishing sanctions are be interpreted as iran as an actor for, something iran's foreign minister reaffirmed just today. >> i think the united states has engaged in economic war against iran. economic war which president trump very proudly articulated as taking place against iran. to target civilians. it doesn't target military personnel. it doesn't target officials, it target ordinary civilians. >> but iran is the one suspected of terrorizing oil tankers in the middle east. most recently, a tanker based in the united arab emirates has gone missing. at the same time, iran's foreign ministry says it assisted an oil tanker that broke down in a straight up hormuz. leading to suspicions that iran seized the tanker. >> asked for this possible meeting between senator paul and iranian foreign minister, a u.s. official said tonight that we are aware of those reports but would not comment on if it is or is not happening. >> mike: something to watch,
kristin fisher, thanks a lot. >> thank you. >> mike: since it rally tonight, president trump says iran is a different country after he pulled the u.s. out of the obama-era nuclear deal. let's bring in republican senator cory gardner from colorado who sits on the foreign relations committee. great to have you. a huge issue obviously is iran. there are reports senator paul has appealed to president trump to allow him to sit down with the iranian foreign minister. your thoughts on the president 'his comments tonight on iran and about the possibility of rand paul being there? >> just last year under the obama iran nuclear deal iran had a pathway to a nuclear bomb. we have made it very clear we are not going to stand for a nuclear iran. we are going to continue putting maximum pressure on iran until he gives up its nuclear program, until it stops threatening the world with terrorism, until it stops killing americans in the middle east or its proxies and equipment. i think in that respect we are standing up to iran and this is a new day as it relates to iran. as it relates to some of the
"caddyshack" diplomacy that may have unveiled itself over the weekend, i'm not quite sure what to think of it. >> mike: this is now day four of president trump's feud with the droop of freshman lawmakers known as "the squad." ocasio-cortez, omar, tlaib and pressley. so the president described them this evening. >> these left-wing ideologues see our nation as a force of evil. the way they speak so badly of our country. they want to demolish our constitution, we can our military, eliminate the values that built this magnificent country. >> mike: senator, is that criticism fair? >> i think what is fair is criticism directed towards their beliefs that they need and support policies that fundamentally change this country. ideas that are rooted sometimes and socialism, sometimes very much against the free market, capitalism. i've heard comments by at least some of them that they believe are men and women who are trying to secure our borders are running concentration camps.
that is not constructed for this country, it's simply not true either. we knew to support our men and women in law enforcement, support those who are trying to secure our border. we need to defend this country's capitalism and free market system and uphold the contribution to my constitution. what i continue to hear from too many in the house of representatives are ideas that would fundamentally change the direction of this country. >> mike: another issue you're fighting for is obviously a permanent extension of the 9/11 benefits for our first responders who ran into those buildings on 9/11 and were there for months after. take a listen to jon stewart this evening and i will get you to react. >> you know, there's some things they have no trouble putting on the credit card but somehow when it comes to the 9/11 first responder community, the cops, the firefighters, the construction workers, volunteers, the survivors, all of a sudden, man, we got to go through this. >> mike: senator, how do you get this across the finish line?
>> we have 73 sponsors in the united states senate on the victims compensation fund, the 9/11 bill, that is more than enough to overcome us out to filibuster. more than enough to overcome a veto. it's not going to be vetoed, this will pass and it will become law. so i admire the work that so many have put into this but i particularly admire the work of every first responder who went towards the danger, who breathed in the toxins on that morning when america went to war against terrorism. >> mike: dunn is the relocation of much of the bureau of land management from washington to west of the rockies. why is that a smart move? >> 245 million acres of land, 99% of those acres are west of the mississippi river. it just makes sense to have the management, the decisions, the directors, also west of the mississippi river and i can think of no better place than the grand junction, colorado. a western slope company, 70% of the county is held by public -- either the federal government or the state government, so to have these decision-makers local in the communities where the
decision to impact the most, i think it will result in entirely better decision-making. >> mike: senator cory gardner, thanks so much for your time. >> thanks for having me, mike. >> mike: for the first time in nearly 30 years and drop in the number of opioid overdose deaths. the president claiming credit. dr. siegel will check the facts next. that's a win. but it's not the only reason i switched. geico's a company i can trust, with over 75 years of great savings and service. ♪ now that's a win-win. switch to geico. it's a win-win.

where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. be there for you, and them. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. i comparison shop for everything to get the best deal. gas is 6 cents cheaper here. sale rack! no! and, for loans, i go to lendingtree.com. i wanted to consolidate my credit cards in to a personal loan to pay them off faster. lending tree made
lenders compete for my business and i ended up with a loan that saved me over $9000 and no more credit card debt. i mean $9000! it's a lot of money. lending tree, may the best loan win. >> no part of our society, not young or old, rich or poor, urban or rural, has been spared this plague, drug addiction, and this horrible, horrible situation that's taken place with opioids. >> mike: that was two years ago, but now for deaths in america for drug overdoses are down from the prior year. as the president's reaction tonight. >> it's dropped, for the first time in more than 30 years, it's gone down. >> mike: we asked
dr. marc siegel to look at where we are now in the fight against the epidemic since president trump is made it a top priority. doctor. >> good evening, mike. in his first year in office, president trump declared the opioid epidemic a national emergency. a lot has been done since then to try to stem the tide and we may finally be starting to see some progress with drug overdose deaths dropping in the u.s. for the first time since 1990. according to preliminary government data made public today, over 60,000 people still died last year from drug overdoses, but this was a decrease of 5% from the year before and it was possibly due to the changes in part to the way doctors prescribe opioids. but not all the news is good as overdose deaths from synthetic opioids including fentanyl are still trending upward from 29,000 in 2017 up to 32,000 in 2018. part of the reason for the increase is because the illicit trade is fueled by prescription
drug addiction that starts in the doctor's office and in the pharmacy. new data released from a dea database known as arcos, analyzed by "the washington post," reveals that between 2006 and 2012, a whopping 76 billion pills of oxycodone and hydrocodone were distributed mostly by just six companies. walgreens, cardinal health, amerisourcebergen, cvs, and walmart. this translates to one of opioids for every person in the u.s. to have 36 pills per year of the powerful painkillers, which include percocet, oxycontin, and vicodin. >> they wanted to go on weaponize the american medicine cabinet with opioids and hundreds of thousands of people have died. >> the flood of billions of opioid prescriptions helps sustain the pill mills in florida, many of which are just off the interstate, advertised on highway billboards and meanwhile, the so-called "blue highway" of pills stretch from florida to georgia to
west virginia to kentucky and on into ohio. blue is the color of one of the most commonly prescribed forms of oxycodone, hence blue highway. if progress is beginning to be made, one thing is for sure; we still have a long way to go. mike. >> mike: dr. marc siegel, thank you very much. a fox news alert, we're hearing about a large number of protesters out in force against stomach again tonight against puerto rico's progressive governor ricardo rossello. rossello's government thrown into chaos after sexist, homophobic and profane text messages were revealed. jeff paul is live on the scene for us, hello, jeff. >> yeah, mike, this protest officially entering its seventh hour here in san juan and as you see behind me the crowd out here still very fired up. tens of thousands of people have been out here pretty much all day and night as they demonstrate right outside the governor's house, they've been chanting, playing music, as we were all throughout the night, singing as they try to get the
simple message across loud and clear that they want the governor to resign. they've also had a booth today for musical stars like ricky martin and bad bunny, who were at the demonstration earlier in the evening. there have been protests on previous days, some ending with vandalism, rocks being thrown and teargas from police, but tonight so far no major clashes between protesters and police. three reported arrests at least for violating the perimeter that surrounds the governor's office. heard about maybe one possible injury, but that involved one of the protesters who was in the crowd with another protester. if we are really not sure if the governor is actually inside his house tonight, but he remains steadfast that he is not going to resign. mike. >> mike: jeff paul on the scene of a tense scene in san juan, thanks very much. another squad has assembled with one mission in mind, defeating democratic congressman alexandria ocasio-cortez in 2020. robert pattillo and john

like that district they're going to have to make a strong economic message, they're going to have to work hard to direct issues with income inequality. issues of minority rights, work hard on issues that involve young people and women and people of color and not saying that it's impossible. nothing is impossible in politics. nobody thought that the host of the apprentice would be the president of united states but it is an uphill battle. >> mike: john, what are your thoughts on ocasio-cortez on the so-called squad that's getting so much attention? >> i think the president tried to put focus on them and some of the outrageous comments that they've made and that's why he made the comments that he made and i would say for him, mission accomplished. for me, again, i'm really in this to represent the local people. i like to say that i am you. i've lived or worked in the district for all of my 59 years and i've been teaching there for 21. and i really have a good grasp of what's going on. as robert mentioned, obviously the economy is important, but for me it all starts with
education and i am a small proponent of choice in education. people who try to dismiss private education and charter schools are really eliminating a lot of access for people to move onward and upward. >> mike: robert, top democrats after the news axios "if all voters here about is aoc, it could put the house majority at risk. she's getting all the news and defining everyone else's races. is that the big picture for democrats heading into 2020? >> you can look at the allegory of the tea party revolution a decade ago 2010. what democrats were able to do is tie the moderates in the party directly to the most extreme of the tea party and use that as rocket fuel going into president obama's reelection in 2012. democrats are falling into that same trap. by allowing the president to shape the narrative, to make it about four freshman democrats instead of the broader campaign -- the broader policy considerations of the democratic party, it's very easy to pigeonhole the idea for the
party into bernie sanders, aoc, elizabeth warren territory instead of attracting moderate voters, which are going to be needed to win that. of democrats have to focus on talking about those policies which will help the middle class, help those rustbelt voters and economic prosperity that doesn't just affect wall street but mainstreet also. >> mike: robert pattillo, john cummings, thank you very much. going back to san juan, things heating up. stick around. now no fruit is forbidden. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn?

>> mike: fox news alert, a chaotic scene on the streets of san juan, puerto rico. we had a live report there are a short time ago from our correspondent jeff paul. our team had to clear the immediate area for safety but police are firing teargas protesters there in san juan, all related to puerto rico's new progressive governor ricardo marcello. rossello's government thrown into chaos after the sexist, homophobic and profane text messages were revealed. clearly protesters -- clearly the protesters the government out. fox news contributor joining us, your thoughts on the scenes we are seeing there in san juan tonight? >> things have certainly deteriorated quite rapidly and now i think with your reporter on the ground having to retreat because of his safety and what is happening there as we are
seeing on the tv right now, things are getting ugly quick and the governor has got a lot of responsibility for what you're seeing on the streets today. in addition to the corruption that we've seen in puerto rico -- puerto rico is a hotbed and we can only hope and pray that it doesn't turn violent. >> mike: when you see scenes like this being broadcast across america and perhaps around the world, is it a matter of time for the government -- the governor is ultimately out? >> i think so. his actions posted the revelations of his media -- the social media, have not quelled things. they put gas on the fire. and i think that he is his days are numbered. >> mike: jeff paul was live on the scene for us a few minutes ago and he told us this has been going on for six or seven hours. clearly as it gets later into the evening it gets to be a more tense situation. hopefully not a violent
situation, but clearly the folks there in puerto rico, a lot of them on the streets as we are approaching midnight, making their concerns known that they want this governor out. it will be interesting to see what the rest of this evening brings and perhaps what tomorrow looks like as well. >> right. we can only hope the governor is able to calm the situation and not continue in the vein that he has in the last few days. >> mike: so we're looking at the scene there in san juan and of course the governor's offensive tweets and texts came out and a lot of people taking to the streets, this is a new progressive governor of puerto rico, and people on the street, police actively engaging with the protesters now. you see folks taking cover, our camera crew taking cover right now. there is jeff paul, our correspondent on the scene, who has just come in from what looks like a pretty dangerous seen on the streets there. a very tense situation in puerto rico tonight in san juan
as a lot of protesters have been on the streets seeking their governor to resign after a controversial situation there. the pictures are back there. let's continue to look at the scene there. brad, your thoughts as we are watching this? looks like it's getting worse just in the last few minutes. >> we need some leaders in puerto rico other than the mayor to step up and speak and settle the situation down. this is not going to end, i think, without the mayor stepping down. and we are going to see it intensify, in my opinion, if something is not done and done quickly. >> mike: our correspondent jeff paul has reconnected with us. your thoughts as you're watching this situation escalate there on the ground? >> they won't let us do a live shot in here. if they would rather be outside and die. >> mike: sounds like just getting reconnected with us. we continue to look at the scenes there.
san juan, puerto rico, protesters on the streets seeking that the governor, controversial new progressive governor, they want him out and a clash with police late into the evening after these protests have been going on for the better part of six or seven hours. with got a crew live on the scene. jeff paul, our correspondent, is there. looks like he's taking cover inside a building as the situation has gotten more tense. jeff, what's the scene there, how bad is that gotten in recent moments? >> yeah, we just had to run inside the hotel. >> mike: okay -- >> hear what's going on. >> mike: go ahead, your mike cut out briefly. >> they are shooting teargas outside and there protesters were picking up potted trees and trying to make a wall in the street as police are firing
teargas down the street. anything they can pick up to throw down the way to sort of combat with the police, they are doing with the teargas. that's what we're seeing right now. a lot of the crowd, much of the crowd, the tens of thousands of people that we saw, they have now dispersed and we are smelling it. we are feeling it and we are tasting the teargas that's in the air as they continue to shoot to get this crowd to break up. >> mike: was the escalation in the last few minutes from the police firing teargas or was it the protesters perhaps throwing things at the police that led to an escalation? >> we wrapped up our live chat with you where we talked about that there weren't any major clashes between police and protesters and it seemed like it the minute that we got done with our shot we just heard -- it sounded like teargas. if you've ever been around protest you can tell what it sounds like. we started to smell it. it's really unclear who escalated the situation first, but we do know that they had a barrier set up and was the protesters started crossing the
barrier in previous occasions, they would do something about it. so i'm not sure if it was a protester who crossed the line or if they just started shooting teargas at a certain time to get the crowd to leave, but that's what's happening right now and much of this crowd has left. >> mike: jeff paul live on the scene of a tense situation. our best to you and your team. be safe. our midnight heroes spring into action and jump right into the fire. you don't want to miss it, next. and he has subscriptions to a music service he doesn't listen to and five streaming video services he doesn't watch. this is jerry learning that he's still paying for this stuff he's not using. he's seeing his recurring payments in control tower in the wells fargo mobile app. this is jerry canceling a few things. booyah. this is jerry appreciating the people who made this possible. oh look, there they are.
