8:01 pm
made another admission, coming up. hello and welcome to "fox news @ night," i'm shannon bream in washington. we start tonight with chief breaking news correspondent trace gallagher and are telling us from, the president continuing his feud with california during his latest visit, good evening, trace. speak a evening to you in the final stop of his three-day trip out west, president trump toward a new section of the border wall south of san diego posting that "can't be climbed" missing the federal government had 20 skilled mountain climbers try and scale the structure, but they were unsuccessful. the president also pointed out the wall is built of concrete and rebar making it tough to cut through or knock over that it retains heat. watch. >> plus it's designed to absorb heat, so it's extremely hot. the wall is -- you will be able to culture. you can fry an egg on that wall. it's very, very hot. >> meantime, critics continue to say that new wall construction is scarce, which is disingenuous considering there are 50 plus of
8:02 pm
new wall. it's just replacing old dilapidated structures that could easily be climbed or cut. when asked why mexico isn't paying for the wall, the president dodged saying mexico is paying for troops to stem the flow of migrants. in customs and border protection has confirmed the recent influx of migrants crossing the u.s. border has slowed dramatically and the president touched on that very subject during an interview with ed henry. watch. >> people aren't even coming up. if you see the numbers are going way down and we are not doing the catch and release anymore and we wish we had help from the democrats in congress, but they want open borders, they don't want this, they want criminals to come in. >> meantime, while the administration is still promising to intervene in the homelessness crisis in california, president trump and hud secretary ben carson have sent a letter to state officials rejecting federal dollars to expand programs like housing vouchers writing "your letter seeks federal dollars for
8:03 pm
california from hardworking american taxpayers, but fails to admit that your state and local policies have played a major role in the current crisis." secretary carson told fox news that might housing costs in california are simply too high, look. >> what we need to do is analyze the reasons that the costs are so high, and it's because of all the regulatory barriers and restrictions. >> and in another date at the golden state today, the president announced a rollback to a waiver that california was given way back in 1968 allowing the state to set higher admission standards for vehicles than the federal government allows. the president also said automakers should comply or risk going out of business. california is bowing to fight the rollback. by the way, trump remains unpopular in california, but his fund-raisers over the past few days reportedly snagged about 15 million bucks. shannon. >> shannon: trace gallagher live in a lake thank you.
8:04 pm
president trump having the border wall in california and says he is going to take on the homelessness crisis. california leaders, you heard trey say, sue over his nose policy announcement, so let's debate with a couple of our favorite west coasters, host of left coast news, ethan bearman, and host of the next revolution right here on fox news, d, both turning his life. great to have you gentlemen. >> hi, shannon. >> shannon: okay, so there is a lot there. let's start with the homelessness issue. here is what -- about the fed getting involved at the state and local officials don't get it under control. >> if these democrat liberal politicians don't straighten it out, the federal government will have to come in. we are not going to lose cities like los angeles, timber cisco, and others that are great cities, we are not going to allow that to happen to our cities. >> shannon: state officials there did not receive that news very well. >> well, that's because what it does is shine a spotlight on their failure, and it's a failure for many, many years. if you have ben carson there --
8:05 pm
he was met by protesters. some of the most ridiculous slogans i've ever heard. i just want to redo what they were saying. you are to blame, making people homeless is your game. dr. carson, it's no lie, you're the reason we sleep outside. that is so stupid. if you look at what's been going on in california for years, the people who are outside for sleeping on the streets, both suffering and causing so many problems, the vast majority of them either have mental health problems or drug addiction or both and it's the failure of the authorities in this state, state and local officials, to actually deal with that in a direct way, to say if you've got mental health problems and are sleeping on the street, we need to put you into treatment. if you've got drug addiction problems, we need to force you to go into rehab. you can't be out there sleeping on the street, but they have refused to do that and now finally there is some accountability coming and that's what they don't like, no wonder they are complaining about it.
8:06 pm
>> shannon: someone else complaining is a business owner out there in california who says he is considering closing down because of the problem. it is what he told our own tucker carlson. >> we tried to call the police to have them intervene and arrest them and in the process he decided to bite me in one of the statements he made was why are you in calling the police, they are not going to do anything, they're just going to let me go. >> shannon: what about that problem? >> is horrible and i hate to see that happen at all and people do get attacked sometimes and it's terrible that we don't take the time to differentiate between visible homeless and the invisible homeless. at what steve was referring to, and what that business are dealt with or what we call the visible homeless, those who are out in our paths, they are blocking sidewalks, they have mental health issues and we finally come after 50 years of court rulings that have tied the hands of city and state leaders here in the state of california, have started to finally make some progress with new conservatorship rules.
8:07 pm
we try to address the housing crisis that dr. ben carson has so fundamentally wrong. it's actually market problem, over 3 million units of housing short, which the feds could help with as opposed to raising the price that people that are on section 8 vouchers have to contribute, which is what dr. carson has proposed. we need to be helping these people, the federal government can help in a lot of different ways, but you do mean to demonize, to complain, 50 years of bad policies and misspent money had absolutely contributed to the problem but we have leaders were finally trying to address it and we could use some positive help from the federal government. >> shannon: steve, your response? >> sorry. ethan, we know each other, i'd like you very much, but that is completely wrong. the leaders are not addressing the problem. if the problem is getting worse, not better. the numbers are going up, not down. their hands haven't been tied in this respect, they have been tied by their failure to confront progressive ideology, which says we are not going to
8:08 pm
confront these problems -- >> the court rulings that tie them down. >> that's not correct. in new york, for example. >> that is correct, i can cite you the cases against the city of los angeles. the city of boise and the ninth circuit. those are federal cases that actually tell the cities they can't do certain things until they address things like housin housing. >> why can they do it in new york? why can they do it in new york? >> because they are in the ninth circuit's of those courts are in this area, that's what the law works. >> shannon: steve, get up that sentence about the 95% so we can hear what you're saying. >> 95% of people in new york who don't have housing and shelter are in accommodation -- they are not sleeping on the streets in california is 25%. the numbers are getting worse and the problem is that these leaders in the state and local level in california just won't stand up to the liberal progressive ideology but says we are going to be soft and hands-off about this terrible public health crisis, never mind a human crisis and the people affected.
8:09 pm
>> shannon: will agree it is a crisis, finding solutions is going to take a lot of work and probably across the aisle, so think about them agreed to have you with us tonight. >> thank you, shannon. >> shannon: fox news alert, the canadian prime minister apologizing at her school photo of him from 2001 surfaced in brown face makeup and he's made another admission on top of that. correspondent tracking all the late-breaking news. >> not his first time in brown face makeup, we will get to that in a minute. there are roughly a month away from voting in canada so it's not an october surprise in american election legal but a september surprise. here is the picture. a then-29-year-old justin trudeau, a teacher at a private prep school, attended an arabian nights party with parents and faculty. he dressed up as a character, he said, from aladdin complete with ropes, headdresses, and as you can see from that makeup, brown skin. noteworthy that trudeau at the time was no stranger to public life. his father also served as prime minister. the photo was given to time by a
8:10 pm
vancouver businessman who was part of the west point gray, that's the name of the school, community. this photo was in the yearbook. the man says it's important the public see the picture even though it's now almost two decades old. here is his response. >> in 2001 when i was a teacher, i was in vancouver. i attended an end-of-the-year gala or the theme was arabian nights. i dressed up in an aladdin costume and put makeup on. i shouldn't have done that. i should have known better. >> trudeau became premised or calling himself champion of minority groups became one of president obama's closest friends. his relationship with president trump isn't nearly as warm. mr. trump is referred to him as just in from canada. he's facing a tough reelection bid as he already faces one scandal involving his attorney general and the investigation of a large canadian company. on his plane tonight he admitted
8:11 pm
this wasn't his first time in such a costume. >> when i was in high school, i dressed up at a talent show and saying with makeup on. it was something that i didn't think was racist at the time but now i recognize it was something racist to do. i've always -- and you will know this -- been more enthusiastic about costumes than is somehow -- is sometimes appropriate. >> so tonight he sidestepped a question about whether or not he will resign. this sort of hearkens back to a scandal we covered a lot here over the past year involving the governor of virginia, who is still governor. >> shannon: he is, and there are still questions about that yearbook photo. thank you for getting us up to date. good to see you. so tonight the u.s. doubling down the saying that is behind the drone attack in saudi arabia on the world's largest oil production facility.
8:12 pm
despite iran's denial, secretary of state mike pompeo calling it an act of war today while he is visiting saudi arabia. it better at home president trump announcing a new round of sanctions on tehran. >> we are doing at the right way, we're doing it the smart way it's very easy to go -- we could go in and one instant, just one phone call, we could going, and that might happen. that might happen, but we will see what we will see. >> shannon: also tonight, the president has made his new national security advisor tapping robert o'brien. the state department's top hostage negotiator. resident robbie has good chemistry with o'brien after working closely with them to free american citizens held across the world. new tonight, "the washington post" reporting that president trump 'his communications with a foreign leader are a key part of a formal whistle blower complaint filed with the inspector general for the intelligence community. the post reporting that the complaint involves an alleged promise made to a foreign leader. the complaint involves

someone about 48 hours ago. an incident where the punitive victim doesn't recall it happening in the punitive eyewitness has never been examined or cross-examined and shannon, as you know, the d.c. court of appeals is the second highest court in our land. it's the second highest court, so if you're unfit to be on the supreme court, why didn't he bring this up when brett kavanaugh was up to be on the d.c. court of appeals? >> shannon: people want to talk about whether this is partisan or political or not. if there's been a lot of heat and a lot of fire over this particular seat. it's been a year and yet there have been a number of ethics complaints and people continuing to go after the justice. i think by my recollection only one supreme court justice has ever been impeached but wasn't actually kicked off the bench. so in this potentially something that can backfire on democrats and those who are saying let's take it to the wall on this, especially going into 2020? >> well, it depends. politically it will backfire when people who align themselves with democratic principles say,
8:22 pm
you know what, this is not the right way to do it. it won't be republicans criticizing this. it will have to be democrats that say, you know what, i wouldn't have picked kavanaugh, but lindsey graham would not have picked sonia sotomayor and kagan. but as a republican senator who should respect him, wound up voting for him. where's the equal treatment? which is why lindsay got very of cat in that set them at cabinet hearings. this would change when democrats require that a change in that you don't port people, you don't miguel estrada people and you don't break kavanaugh people. >> shannon: a lot of senate democrats office and we don't want to talk about this and they are definitely not behind us, they don't want to take on publicly. want to talk about also the doj inspector general horowitz. a number of reports have come, are coming from him. even on the hill today and there was a little back-and-forth with a couple of your former colleagues, g.o.p. house members. there is what they had to say about more they would like to be

8:24 pm
i don't think he enjoys being brought into the political fray. in fact, i know he does not enjoy it. so when you talk about making referrals -- he doesn't have any prosecutorial power, so a referral to do what? to investigate? because if he finds criminality, he has to refer to the department of justice, which he did, apparently with comey and which he did with mccabe, but i think horwitz -- i think we are going to appreciate his work on the fisa report, but i don't think he wants to be brought into political squabbles about was going to be referred for criminal action and who is not. >> shannon: especially when his job is completely apolitical in nature. in the meantime, trey gowdy -- >> supposed to be buried >> shannon: for a lot of people in washington, supposed to be. great to have you with us in the meantime. >> yes, ma'am, thank you. >> shannon: so far as far as we know the doj is not pursuing charges against former fbi director james comey for leaking memos. it's unclear whether the grand

but i've got to tell you, listening to the statement from dr. when and following the story, don't you find it so ironic that they are trying to silence her voice and she's complaining about her voice being silenced when planned parenthood has silenced the voices of millions of babies, and i just find this so ironic. >> shannon: and of course their side of the story, what some sources are slain, it was a management issue, her management style, that kind of thing, so this is her side of the story. you mentioned title x, they say they've been forced out of being able to receive federal funding because the family-planning money in the health care money will go to those clinics that do not perform abortions or refer for abortions. here's what they say on the website, planned parenthood action fund. "when politicians talk about the funding plan parenthood, they really mean blocking patients who depend on public health care funds from getting their care at planned parenthood's health centers, how do you respond?
8:43 pm
>> there are a few hundred planned parenthood clinics in this country. for over 13,000 women's health clinics, community health clinics, in this country, and when planned parenthood doesn't get money -- and that money is fungible -- than those dollars are going to end up going to those community centers, that is where the greatest need is. our goal is to make certain that women who are underserved have the ability to receive access to health care. >> shannon: we know that that legal fight on their part is not over. i want to ask about a couple of other hot topics what we have you. guns, where are we on that? we hear there's a lot of negotiations going on behind the scenes. senator chris murphy tweeted this. he said i just finished a meeting with attorney general barr and senator toomey and joe manchin. it was a really good discussion with the fact remains that there is no good deal but that gun lobby will support, so now the white house make and there is a statement out there for me and are basically saying what they are seeing floating around, this one pager, is not something i can get behind.

very serious crime, but one of the real aggregating factors is he never should have been there in the first place, so my office took the stance that he needed to be prosecuted for illegally reentering this country after being deported and earlier this week he was convicted on those charges. he was sentenced to three and a half years in prison. the prison sentence will be consecutive, that means on top of, the state sentence he is serving, a 16 year sentence. once i get out of indiana prison for that 16 year sentence, he will be turned over to a federal prison and serve an additional three and a half years. >> shannon: we got some polling numbers when people are asked about whether illegal immigrants should be deported, whether they committed a serious crime, 45% said yes, any crime, 26%, there is still a split in this country among those who think that there should be mass deportations or this administration or federal authorities should be focusing on any specific people.
