anger hope is better than fear and optimism is better than despair. this is the first time biden his in trouble for borrowing material to >> 1987 had to drop out of the presidential race due to a plagiarism scandal. today biden left wilmington and headed to his house while biden is off the campaign trail. candidates are taking a break during the opposing party's convention to the cycle the biden campaign said they aren't going dark during the gop convention but instead they have a counter campaign that will feature video press conferences with democratic heavyweight starting with congressman val demings on monday followed a michigan governor gretchen whitmer senator cory booker speaker nancy pelosi and pete buttigieg. tomorrow the joint ticket interview will air in and it died and says he would be willing to shut down the country during the flu season of scientists recommended it. >> in order to keep the country running and moving and the

we take a look at this new video we have out of portland this afternoon their time. violent rallies being held by opposing groups at the justice center in the middle of the day in portland. this is the epicenter of the 86'd night of rioting that are right-wing blue lives matter group planned a rally today and rally today and a left-wing marxist protest group countered them. those sides are throwing rock amp projectile to one another. reportedly both sides have makeshift shields in their reports of tasers and paintball guns and mace being used rid this is portland police find themselves in the middle of it all in riot gear trying to protect their police precinct. this north precinct was the site of the right last night when a crowd of 150 to 200 writers badly damaged police patrol vehicles at this very same location. the portland police bureau reported projectiles being thrown last night at police officers that included railroad
spikes, eggs, bottles golfballs and balloons filled with. nine people were arrested last night. this is the fbi continues to investigate a car bomb threat made to federal officers in portland on friday. the same day 25-year-old marquice love turned himself in. love is facing three federal charges including assault. love is accused of repeatedly punching and kicking this man adam haner nns disturbing attack video we have seen. painter was knocked unconscious and he said he and his girlfriend tried to stop the crowd from attacking and robbing a woman when he was attacked himself by black lives matter protesters. >> they were trying to fight the behavior towards them but they are exhibiting the same behaviors that they are trying to stop. >> you can watch there rest of
this interview at 8:00 p.m. on "watters' world" with jesse watters. jon. jon: bryan llenas reporting from brooklyn. brian, thank you. for more on the vote we told you about at you about the top of the hour regarding the postal service in the house of representatives and what to expect from postmaster general louis dejoy congressional testimony monday was bringing congressman norman a member of the house oversight and reform committee. the postmaster general congressman will be speaking to your committee on monday, correct? what do you intend to ask him? >> well i will probably defending him. if it's like pulliam bar's testimony the democrats will give them 20 seconds of that to respond to their assaults. i will be asking him to explain why he's doing what he is doing why are we getting the money and wide the vote was a complete sham today and hopefully at least some of the democrats will give them time to answer but i
doubt it. jaw mack republicans have argued that there a lot of other things that congress should be voting on and is in but to this postal service bill under unusual circumstances. why is that? >> it's a all political. they dislike this president so much. we haven't been in session since march 10 and this bill has not been debated and it has not gone through the regular process. this is just how the democrats do it. they are manufacturing this crisis and they think it gains them something politically. they will do anything to stop this president and i don't think it's going to work. jon: the argument from the democrats as you have to throw bunch of money at the post office to enable it to process all of the ballots that democrats would like to see cast as a result of mail-in voting. do i have a summation corrects? >> what they want to do is what
they want is mask ballots being sent to anybody no verification of driver's license and they are saying that $25 billion which we have 73 days before the election in 237 million a day. it lets taxpayers get a glimpse of that to see if they agree with that which i don't think they do. the post office has plenty of money. it has $15,000,000,000.10 billion additional from the cares act and $400 million for handling the election. so it's a false claim. it's manufactured and i think the public sees it and we will see it for what it is. jon: as you are answering that question the vote tally in the house went above the 216 needed to move this thing forward. it's 224 yeas now so it appears that nancy pelosi has her way and will get a positive vote out
of the house but then it goes to the senate and the senate is just going to let it languish in all probability. >> that's why this is a wasted manufacture crisis. she knows the senate isn't going to do it. jon: the senate isn't going to do anything with the? >> the senate isn't going to do anything with it. this is a messaging bill against this president. jon: so the hope if you are nancy pelosi is you get a bunch of headlines and you get people believing that republicans want to beat up on the postal service. >> you have heard everything today from the president. a threat to democracy and they gave examples of people not getting mail. barack obama took out more postal boxes then the postmaster general now.
again it's just an attempt to create chaos and an attempt to demean the president. again i don't think it's going to work. i think this president is going to win it and this is just another long list of items that they are going after president trump on. jon: the 25 billion-dollar postal service bill appears to be on its way to passage. they have the votes in the house. south carolina congressman ralph norman we will be watching you monday when the postmaster general comes to your committee. >> my pleasure. jon: to two tropical storms are moving across the caribbean on a historic march towards the u.s. golf coast. the watch has been issued for the florida keys is tropical storm laura hammers puerto rico and heads towards the dominican republic. tropical storm our is passing through yucatán channel. hurricane watches in effect for parts of louisiana right now. both storms projected to approach the u.s. gulf coast at or near hurricane-force.

as the debate over mail-in ballots winds its way through congress several states are now using ballot drop boxes. that gives voters a place to put their mail-in ballots without going to the post office but critics believe it could lead to voter fraud. eric shawn has more. >> the workers at the michael p. murphy post office are preparing for a crush of mail-in ballots as their other post offices across the country but in one new york state senator is proposing an alternative way to vote, ballot boxes pay ballot boxes are like large mailboxes that are set up by local election boards for voters to simply pop their outlets into the slot. that way voters do not have to rely on the mail to get their ballots in one time or stand in line at polling places because of coronavirus. a growing number of states coast-to-coast already is ballot
boxes and election officials insist they are proven safe and secure method of voting. new york state has had recent foulups and mail voting is state senator brad doyle meant has put ballot fox is on the streets of the empire state. sad this is the best way to get your ballot to the board of elections if you don't want to vote in person in my opinion. they are secure, they are safe in the cut out the u.s. postal service which has been undermined by the current administration of voters will have confidence to know that their election ballot is going to be counted. >> critics like president trump campaign say ballot boxes are not safe and could be susceptible to voter fraud. they have sued pennsylvania election officials claiming such boxes should not even be considered legal polling places. in philadelphia with a different set of rules then than in some other counties in the state puk of votes that are double counted. he could have people voting multiple times.
there's no security at the box pretty good at people voting after the polls close. we need uniform standards that follow the rules and allow people to have certainty in the outcome of their election. >> while some states employ video monitoring for security president trump says drop boxes are still vulnerable to tampering especially the democratic states that try to mail out alex to every voter whether they ask for them or not. the president tweeted quote some states use drop boxes for the collection of universal mail-in ballots so who is going to collect the ballots and what might he done to them prior to calculation? the rigged election? so bad for our country. only of absentee ballots acceptable. >> states are implementing drop off boxes that are unsecured and monitored and don't have uniform standards and how they are handled municipality by municipality. this is dangerous and a
dangerous way to administer an election. it can lead to fraud and it can lead to an insecurity but most importantly can lead to uncertainty. >> this is an incredibly unusual time. there's nothing more important especially now during a national emergency than making sure that every vote is counted and giving voters a safe and healthy alternative to cast their ballots. >> if approved they will need a lot of drop fox is. new york state has nearly 13 million registered voters. i'm eric shawn, "fox news." jon let's bring in republican national committee spokeswoman liz harrington. you probably have a chance to hear that report received a report from eric shawn. would he think about the idea that drop boxes for voting ballots? >> the real problem with
democrats plan to completely overhaul our elections and less than 80 days is that it's never been tried and they are mailing out more ballots than there are eligible voters on the roll. if you look at what just happened in detroit where 72% of their precincts did not have an accurate tally. the vote tally didn't match in their recent primary how can anyone have confidence in the outcome of that result? that's what we are fighting for and if you don't have oversight over this process when democrats try valid harvesting which they are suing in these battleground states to make what happened in paterson new jersey legal? of course they will say there's no such thing as voter fraud because they want to legalize voter fraud. that's aware friday against. we want everyone to have a chance to vote safely and we believe that can be done in person we get to the process which has precautions in place and safeguards built-in preview
have to request a ballot and you have to be a will to prove you are a real voter behind that registration. what democrats are doing doesn't work. it's been a failure everywhere it's tried and reduces confidence in the outcome and where you will question who won and maybe you won't know who won for six weeks like what happened in new york city. jon: you have a busy week ahead. the republican national convention kicks off in charlotte. let's take a look at the overall theme preview are calling it honoring the great american story and each day has a theme on monday the land of promise to say the land of opportunity the land of heroes wednesday in the land of greatness on thursday. the administration is trying to contrast this with the overall team of the democrats last week. >> absolutely. there couldn't be a bigger contrast. our convention is going to be a celebration. we are proud to be american and
we are proud of our candidates at the top of the ticket president trump and all he's been able to accomplish in such a short time in washington. joe biden gave the shortest acceptance speech. it can be very long long because what has he accomplished for the american people? president trump we can showcase what he's done whether it's jobs, tax cuts regulation cuts usmca building the wall defeating isis the biggest mobilization of the private sector since world war ii and fighting that pandemic from communist china. why did we hear from the democrats last week what they have accomplished and the results of their agenda in seattle, and portland in minneapolis and chicago, the list goes on but they have no opposition. they didn't highlight the results of their work. we are going to highlight the results of americans and americans succeeding in to the policies of president trump. they have made a real difference for our country and we are going
to be proud to showcase his results and it will be forward-looking and what we are doing in the second term under president trump really staying true to the founding principles of freedom and equality of opportunity. all we want is one set of rules for everyone to do with 11 shot for everybody of the american dream and there's nothing we can do when we uphold the founding principles that president trump has brought. jon so you want an optimistic tone to the convention but you know this country is hurting right now. there's a pandemic and unemployment is at 10% to a lot of people wonder how they are going to hold on and small businesses especially. how do you put on an optimistic convention in the midst of all that? >> we know as americans there's nothing we can't defeat when we stay true to the principles. the media is not telling the full side of the story. this president has led from the beginning. he acted early when everyone
said you can't travel in joe biden said that's hysterical and fear-mongering and xenophobia. he attacked the european travel ban. we are going to set the record straight. we know this year has been a challenge but we are going to forget why this happened, because the communist regime in china lied to the world and it's not just america that has had to deal with it. it's in the entire world but guess what there's a reason why our economy isn't super bad shape because president trump came in and did what raqqa obama and joe biden could never do. they tried to rewrite history last week at the dnc. they could never get wages rising and unemployment at historic lows. they couldn't bring manufacturing jobs back and it act they said it was impossible. president trump changed all that and going forward we are going to talk about the things we can
do. joe biden is talking about the things we can do. you can't go outside unless you wear a mask and you can't go to school and he can't go to church but go ahead and write and burn down the federal courthouse in portland. it's completely upside down. we have a better way. we know we can do this at operation warp speed in so many amazing accomplishments in fighting this pandemic. hasn't been easy but there's nothing that this president and this country can't do because of our great freedom and our opportunity in the private sector. that's aware going to highlight and that is going to be affluenza teen. you won't hear the calls for restoring capitalism. jon i want to put up for our viewers a quick rundown of the key key speakers president trump vice president pence nikki haley kevin mccarthy joni ernst the senator from iowa can -- tim scott the center for them by q&a
