thanks to my panel. thanks to all of you for watching. i'm paul gigot. we hope to see you all right here, next ♪ ♪ eric: and we start with some promising signs for the 2020 democratic front-runners in a fox news poll just out today. former vice president joe biden maintaining a wide lead over the 22 other candidates and a double-digit lead in a head to head matchup against president trump. will it last? hello, everyone, and welcome to "america's news headquarters," i'm eric shawn along with gillian. >> one new fox news poll shows the former vice president with a commanding lead over the democratic field with 32% support. that's nearly 20 points ahead of
1:01 pm
bernie sanders who pulled in 13%. sanders was and asked about the fluctuating support among democratic primary voters. >> polls go up and polls go down, but the other part of the poll if i heard you correctly, chris, is that i am beating president trump fairly decisively, which is consistent with all of the polling that i have seen. >> and we have fox news team coverage. jonathan serrie at the black economic alliance forum in charleston, south carolina, where several democratic candidates are pitching their message. but we begin with jacqui heinrich in our new york city newsroom. she has more results from the new fox news poll. >> reporter: yeah, the biggest takeaway is over the election. number show the president trailing five democrats in a head to head matchup. former vice president joe biden comes in first by a wide margin with 49% saying they would vote for him over the president's
1:02 pm
39%. senators bernie sanders, elizabeth warren, kamala harris and mayor pete buttigieg also beat the president, although by much smaller margins, buttigieg and harris just one percentage point. one could say they are pretty much tied with the president, and his standing is actually better than where he was at this point in the cycle four years ago. in june 2015 hillary clinton was ahead of trump by 17 points. of the 20 democrats that'll participate in next week's debate, 11 have less than 1% support, the two biggest names are new york senator kirsten gillibrand and former colorado governor john hickenlooper. the top picks are joe biden in the lead, bernie sanders had a pretty significant drop in support, down ten points since march. warren, buttigieg and harris are slightly behind him. the poll also measured the president's approval rating with the majority, 53% have responded saying they disapprove of the job that he's doing, 45%
1:03 pm
approving. for comparison, president obama's approval rating at this time in his presidency was slightly higher at 48%. half of voters said the trump administration has gone too far when it comes to enforcing immigration laws, that's more than double the 24% who say it hasn't gone far enough. and more than half of voters want to see president trump impeached, but not all wanted to see him removed. 48% of voters are not in favor of impeachment. the president did have a win when it came to economy, 57 saying they feel optimistic. the caveat here is numbers have been steadily dropping since january 2017 when 66% said that they felt optimistic. the president is set to launch his re-election campaign on tuesday. >> and we will certainly be covering that. thank you very much. and many of the 2020 democratic presidential candidates on the road this weekend with several of the hopefuls attending the black economic alliance fornumb charleston, south carolina, a crucial primary state. that's where we find jonathan
1:04 pm
serrie live in charleston with more on that. hi, jonathan. >> reporter: well, the candidates came here to talk about economics. it was not lost on them that we are on the eve of a somber anniversary. it was -- tomorrow will mark the fourth anniversary at an historically african-american church where a white spectrum walked inside, opened fire killing nine church members. well, this morning new jersey senator cory booker attended sunday services at mother emmanuel church. take a listen. >> incredible church, an incredible community, and on a morning like this on such a tragic anniversary, it's just good to be here just to worship with folks and just affirm community. >> and i just want to say a word about not only that tragic shooting, but about how this community has come together and made themselves stronger in standing for racial justice, social justice and economic
1:05 pm
justice. and i admire when people take something terrible that happens and make something good out of it. >> reporter: warren and booker were among four democratic presidential contenders speaking at a forum organized by the black economic alliance, a prom innocent concern that came up, reforming the criminal justice system. >> let's end the war on drugs, which has been a war on people, end the prohibition on marijuana, expunge the arrest records for those caught in possession of something that's legal in so manying parts of the country. [applause] >> in order to just join the rank of developed countries that don't incarcerate shocking proportions of their population should be reducing by 50% the number of people incarcerated in this country. >> reporter: and next weekend 22 democratic presidential candidates return to south carolina to attend the state party convention in columbia along with house majority whip jim clyburn's fish fry. back to you.
1:06 pm
>> live in south carolina, thank you. eric? eric: and there's a lot more fallout from an abc news interview that president trump gave. he is defending actions he took during the russia investigation, saying he had the power to fire former special counsel robert mueller if he wanted to. and when asked by george stephanopoulos about why he did not end up firing mueller, trump cited lessons learned from a past president. >> number one, i didn't. he wasn't fired. okay? number one, very importantly. but more importantly, article ii allows me to do whatever i want. article ii would have allowed me to fire him. >> so it sounds like -- >> i wasn't going to fire him. you know why? because i watched richard nixon go around firing everybody, and that didn't work out too well. eric: a lot more on that interview and the results, garrett tenney live at the white house. hi, garrett. >> reporter: yeah, a bit of bad news for anyone who was tired of hearing about the russia investigation, because it will be coming up a lot over the next 17 months from both sides
1:07 pm
of the aisle. the president himself talked a lot about the russia probe in that interview with george stephanopoulos and even brought it up a couple of times when asked about other issues. it is definitely an issue that rallies up his base, but a new fox news poll shows that it could pose some challenges for the president's re-election bid as well. half of registered voters say they believe the trump campaign coordinated with russia in 2016. that's 10% more than those who thought that a week ago. and -- a year ago. and on impeachment, half of registered voters is said president trump at a minimum should be impeached, however, when asked if he's concerned about impeachment, president trump said if democrats moved ahead with it, it would likely help him get reelected. >> look, the republicans in the senate, every single one of them that i see know this is a witch hunt. they get it 100%, and that's what matters. the democrats are going to do it only because they might think it
1:08 pm
helps them. i think it actually hurts them in the election. >> reporter: as for the 2020 campaign, president trump will officially kick off his re-election bid on tuesday with a rally in orlando, florida. eric? eric: we'll have a lot more on those polls later on in the newscast, but still they show the economy, the ongoing trade disputes could be some other areas of concern for the president. what do they show? >> reporter: the president has made the economy really the focal point of his administration, and he's -- the economy has been doing really well, but a new fox news poll shows a few areas of concern, specifically with the trade disputes that are ongoing. 57% of voters said they are optimistic about the economy, but more are pessimistic about it now than they were just a few months ago. as for the trade disputes and the trump administration's use of tariffs, 45% of voters believe the tariffs will ultimately hurt the u.s. economy while only 33% believe it will help. today on "sunday morning futures," the president's top
1:09 pm
trade adviser said the american people are fully behind the white house on these trade talks though. >> let's do the polling on this. harvard/harris poll came out and showed a strong majority of americans support the china tariffs, and eight out of ten republicans. and they do that because there's a growing awareness now of china's economic aggression. >> reporter: so the white house continues to make the argument that the american people, specifically american farmers, willing to take a bit of short-term pain if it results in long-term benefit. but the longer this goes on, the harder that is going to be, that argument is going to be to make, eric. eric: garrett, thanks so much. >> a fox news alert now on escalating tensions between the u.s. and iran. with secretary of state mike pompeo once genre it rating president bush's assertion that tehran was behind the attacks on two oil tankers last week in the gulf of oman. now, this comes as fox news learns iran tried to shoot down an american drone on two
1:10 pm
separate occasions in recent days using surface to air missiles. ellison barber joins us with the very latest from washington. >> reporter: yeah, the japanese owner of a tanker attacked says the tanker was hit by some sort of flying projectile. the u.s. says it was an olympic mine attack and released video allegedly showing iranian sailors removing an unexploded mine from the tanker. iran denies involvement, and across the aisle u.s. officials say iran was behind the attack. some republican lawmakers are talking about military action. >> it's unmistakeable what happened here. these were attacks by the islamic republic of iran on commercial shipping on the freedom of navigation with the clear intent to deny transit through the strait. >> if these kinds of attacks continue, there needs to be a military response. and that doesn't mean invading iran, that means taking out their ability to be able to do attack like this in the future. >> unprovoked attacks on commercial shipping warrant a retaliatory military strike.
1:11 pm
>> reporter: democratic congressman adam schiff says that is not the right move. the house intel chair says there ises no question iran is behind the attacks, but claims the u.s. has isolated so many ally, they cannot convince anyone to join in and take retaliatory action. listen. >> our allies warned the united states, i think our intelligence agencies warned policymakers that this kind of iranian reaction was likely, a result of a policy of withdrawing from the iran nuclear agreement. we should be trying to corral a response from the international community to protect shipping, to impose sanctions. but because we have so alienated ourselves from our allies, that's not happening. >> reporter: secretary of state mike pompeo told "fox news sunday" the u.s. does not want war but will take action, diplomatic or otherwise, to insure ships are able to pass through the strait of hormuz. >> that's right. mike pompeo has certainly taken a very hard stance on this. ellison, thank you. eric: american allies in the region blaming iran for that
1:12 pm
attack. saudi prince mohamed bin salman says tensions could disrupt the markets, and he says the kingdom will not hesitate to act against any threats from tehran. trey inks is in our jerusalem bureau with the latest on that. >> reporter: eric, after those attacks on two oil tankers last week, there is a consensus among key u.s. allies including great britain is and saudi arabia that iran is, indeed, responsible. now, no country has come forward with definitive evidence linking iranian leadership to explosion. the question now though is whether or not there will be a response from the international community since images collected the day of the attack do point to iran. saudi arabia and the united states flew f-15 fighter jets over the persian gulf in a show of joint force against the iranians. this as prince mohamed bin salman says the kingdom is not looking for war but will continue to protect itsests. over the weekend houthi rebels
1:13 pm
targeted two saudi airports. iran continues to deny responsibility for directing such attacks from its proxies in the region. on saturday russian president vladimir putin and iranian president rouhani met on the sidelines of a summit. while rouhani used the opportunity to once again call on european countries to meet iranian demands for the jcpoa deal, his rhetoric was noticeably restrained. >> translator: one country can't fight all the challenges and receive all of the benefits at the same time alone. reaching peace, stability and growth of our nations requires cooperation. >> reporter: despite those comments by rouhani alongside russian president vladimir putin, there is still concern that iranian proxies could launch new takes in the middle east over the next few weeks with a looming deadline to renegotiate the iran nuclear deal. eric? eric: thanks so much. meanwhile, back here at home as pressure builds against nancy

♪ ♪ >> republicans in the senate, every single one of them that i see, know this is a witch hunt. they get it 1100%, and that's what matters. i think it actually hurts them in the election. but there's never been a time in the history of our country where somebody was so mistreated as i have been, and this should never, ever be allowed to happen to another president again. >> president trump saying he's not worried about impeachment because it could be bad for democrats in 2020. this as a new fox news poll shows americans are still deeply divided on the issue. at least half of respondents say they support at least impeachment with most of those supporting both impeachment and removal. but take a look at that 48% number, that's folks who disapprove of impeaching the president. joining us to discuss is fox news radio white house correspondent john decker. thank you for being here, we
1:19 pm
appreciate it. what do those numbers say to you? >> that the country's clearly divided. it's not just the fox news poll. "the wall street journal" did a similar poll with similar results, and they indicate about 48% of those the surveyed would like to see the president impeached, removed from office. interestingly enough though, that same poll indicates that 48% of democrats believe that the president ought to be impeached meaning that there's also division that exists right now in the democratic party about what course of action they should take against president trump. >> you talk about that division in the democratic party, that has certainly been a hot topic of discussion over the last few months. and nancy pelosi has really tried to temper that discussion. but it seem like it's not going away, and it doesn't seem like it's going to go away anytime soon. do you think that she's doing a good job with that, do you think more democrats should be almost following her lead? >> well, she is facing enormous pressure from the left in her party, the progressives in her party that are pushing for articles of impeachment to be
1:20 pm
brought against the president in the house judiciary committee. she's said many, many times that it is now, now is not the time to move towards impeach. against the -- impeachment against the president. there needs to be unity among her party and the american electorate before you go down the road of trying to impeach the president, which is a pretty serious thing. and right now she's doing a good job, but there seems to be a little bit of tension that i noticed between the house speaker and the house judiciary committee chairman jerry nadler on this particular issue. he appears to want to go down the road of bringing articles of impeachment against the president, and i think he's sort of holding off for now. >> you heard the president say he's not worried about this, he thinks this could actually be bad, this impeachment talk, for democrats going into 2020. do you agree? >> well, it would certainly mobilize the president's base if democrats go down thissed road, and it already is a very mobilized base. i think the president's base is strongly behind his re-election
1:21 pm
effort for 2020. this would mobilize them even more. of course, you'd have democrats mobilized to a certain extent. but as i mentioned, there is division among democrats as to whether to go down this road. and right now i'd have to say that by the end of the year, i think we are likely to see articles of impeachment brought against this president at the very least an inquiry into the idea of an impeachment being started in the house judiciary committee. >> do you think the president should be worried? i know he's not going to say even if he was worried the slightest bit, but 43% do say he should be impeached and removed. >> well, right now i don't see anything that would warrant the impeachment of the president given what we know publicly, that's out there in the mueller report. so to a certain extent, i think the president should feel the way he feels. even if he were to be impeached in the house of representatives, there are simply not enough votes in the senate. you need 67 to remove the
1:22 pm
president from office. so i think democrats, there are those that want to go down this road to weaken the president in his re-election run. it may, indeed, do just that. but as i said, it may also embolden the president's base and get them more fired up, energized as we get ready for the 2020 election cycle. >> let's listen to what alexandria ocasio-cortez has to say about that, because she says it's about accountability. >> every day that passes, the pressure to impeach grows. i think it's justifiable. >> so how real is that frustration that speaker pelosi has said at least so far, and she seems to be holding the line she's not ready to do that. >> i think it's quite real. i believe this is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we are, that we are holding this president to account. >> what do you have to say e? >> well, alexandria ocasio-cortez, of course, as a
1:23 pm
house fresh person, freshman, and she represents the far left in the party, and the far left in the party, the progressives, want to move down that road. it's also important to keep in mind that there are 40 freshmen democrats who are holding seats previously held by republicans. they don't necessarily want to go down this road, and i think they hold the key as to whether the democratic party in the house actually moves towards an impeachment inquiry against president trump. >> time will certainly tell. jon, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. have a good day. eric: a fox alert out of kong, hundreds of -- hong kong, hundreds of thousands of protesters taking to the street of that city. demonstrators demanding hong kong chief executive carrie lamb resign and abandon the proposed law which allows officials to expedite suspected criminals to stand trial in mainland china. you know, hong kong's been under

chinese sovereignty since 1997, but it is supposed to be free to retain its own political and legal systems for at least 50 years. and now critics fear though that beijing is breaking that promise. the latest in all this from our west coast newsroom, jeff paul. >> reporter: yeah, eric, for a second straight sunday protesters filled the streets in hong kong, many who marched wore all black and ended up gathering outside the city government's headquarters with some reportedly planning to spend the night. they feel the extradition bill could compromise their civil liberties and independent judicial system despite china claiming it's still honoring the one country, two systems deal. protesters say the suspension of the bill and the recent apology just isn't enough. they fear once the demonstrations settle down, the bill will reappear. >> translator: that you can be sure of that, i think, is hard to say for carrie lamb. you can't be sure if is she will
1:25 pm
push some laws. so all these words, we want to let her know that we cannot accept these laws. >> reporter: the government issued a statement today saying that, quote, deficiencies in the government's work have led to substantial controversies and disputes in society causing disappointment and grief among the people. the statement also said chief executive carrie lamb a apologized. here's lamb just the day before trying to explain how things might move forward. >> but give us another chance. we will not only do this bill well, in our engagement of people we can get more diverse opinions, we can build broader consensus to do it. we'll do it. >> reporter: lamb has inis cysted the bill is needed -- insisted the bill is needed to insure hong kong doesn't become a place where fugitives run to when they find themselves in trouble. the legislative council is set to go on recess in about a month and start again in october.

1:31 pm
strategies -- blueprint strategies. opie, are you surprised that biden has such a lead over the president? or it doesn't matter at this point? >> i don't think it matters really, but what it really shows is biden's highwater mark. i'm sort of surprised at the tiers of where they stand right now, and when you look at the debates, that's going to start tightening up the lower tiers. weeding out a few people and bringing others up. eric: antjuan? >> i'm not surprised at all what's so interesting is not necessarily the national polls that show this, but the state polls like in south carolina where the african-american vote will be critical to whoever wins the state. he is doing well african-american voters. if that translates to be true across the primary calendar and over to general election, i think donald trump and the republican party are in trouble. if you look at the poll in texas, donald trump should be
1:32 pm
nervous because joe biden enjoys a favorability more so than him in texas where something barack obama, bill clinton nor hillary clinton enjoyed at this time. eric: you know, the president was sitting in a limousine with george stephanopoulos and said there's no way that biden or anybody else would beat him in texas. o.b., bernie sanders is 9 points ahead of the art of the deal capitalist, i guess you could say. what do you make of that? >> besides the obvious of them being older white men, you also have two men at the top of the democratic primary polling that everybody knows. all the democratic voters know them. and i think as the rest of the party comes forward, they'll start taking another flavor. you've got 23 right now in this race, down to 20 for the debates, and they're getting tired of them. one question i have too if you look at biden's numbers, in iowa
1:33 pm
he's down to single digits. your poll on fox shows this among younger voters he has a much tougher time. aoc this morning, you showed the interview in regards to her comments on the president, but she doesn't know if she can get behind biden. her and the whole progressive movement are going to find somebody besides joe biden -- [inaudible conversations] eric: antjuan, who could that be? >> yeah, but that doesn't matter because, guess what? the party is not very reflective of her point of view. while i agree that she enjoys a lot of support particularly on social media and where she is elected, but that's not transferable to rest of the country. and when you talk about biden's numbers starting to go down, that's expected. he was enjoying high numbers or a higher profile when he was not a candidate. now that he's a candidate, you always know in this business you're going to take some lumps which means your numbers are going to come down. but guess what?
1:34 pm
he has not put out an advertised effort or campaigned hard enough to define who he is as well as his opponent. he's enjoying these numbers now, imagine what it could be if the other things i just laid out to be true. what i think the republicans should be worried about is the fact that he is the one, he is one of very few people in this primary who can bring the many corners of the democratic primary together after the primary as well as campaign in places and bring along voters that donald trump won in 2016 that barack obama won in 2008 and in 2012. eric: o.b., do you think he could do that? >> i think one of the problems of the democratic party is they're going to hold up and go home if it's joe widen. he's -- joe biden. they will be turned off dramatically -- >> you base that on what? >> pardon me? eric: go ahead, antjuan. >> you making is assumptions about the democratic party, and i think you're wrong with two left shoes.
1:35 pm
[laughter] at the end of the day, democrats will be united about the idea of defeating donald trump and retaining the congress as well as expanding our numbers in the senate. >> i've been accused of having two left feet when i dance but not politically. eric: does that mean two right shoes if you're doubly right? laugh let's end on this note, there is good news here. at this time in 2014 he was way behind hillary, and he's not as far behind biden right now. he's ten points behind biden now. at this point, last time he was 18 points behind hillary clinton. antjuan, tell me what you think of that. >> well, it's what i've always said to be true, polls are a snapshot of the time. there's a lot of football left to be played. so for democrats, we may enjoy this now, but we cannot take for granted. what i care about most is not necessarily just the top of the ticket, but i want to make sure we turn out the same voters we
1:36 pm
did in the midterms so we can expand our numbers there and have checks and balances with our government as required. eric: o.b., you get the last word. >> fox is doing a good job on the town halls, democratic candidates getting their message across and having a chance for viewers to pay attention. but it also shows joe biden, these men and women coming forward is and appealer on fox are really going to light the democratic party on fire, and one of them's going to be a candidate in 2024, but they're not going to beat donald trump this time. eric: there's the prediction. gentlemen, we're on the 0-yard line. -- 10-yard line. [laughter] >> thank you. >> guatemalans are voting on a new president today. the vote could have an impact on the southern border which has seen a surge of guatemalans freeing their country amid poverty and political corruption and making that trek north. william la jeunesse has more where there doesn't appear to be
1:37 pm
a lot of optimism. >> reporter: no, there's not. guatemala is about the size of tennessee, and yet it's the number one source of illegal immigrants to the united states. and for many, that journey begins right here where they cross the river to mexico. the president has convinced this country to bring in about 60 border agents who advise guatemala how to strengthen its border, and, of course, the president threatened mexico with those tariffs. we saw some mexican military, they're supposed to have 6,000 troops on the border, but saw some today. they are now gone. you go upstream, you don't have the rafts and it's much more difficult to cross and impossible to police. also the u.s. is deporting more guatemalans than ever before, three to four flights a day, up to 1500 a week coming into guatemala city. they're promised, they're released, some promise to stop, others say they will try again. what are you going to do now?
1:38 pm
do you have any family here to go see, relatives? >> no, i no have -- i wait a couple times, i'll go back. >> reporter: are you going to try again? >> i don't think so. i need work, and i don't have money, so i can't try again. >> reporter: are you going back? are you going back? >> yeah, i'm going to go back. >> reporter: to georgia? >> yeah. >> reporter: immigranteds here are increasingly coming from the rural highlands where drought and falling coffee prices by 46% are making people leave. there are no jobs. basically, it's not about violence to them, it is about the economy. prices are basically wages in some of those areas is about $8 a day. >> lack of opportunities. the lack of education, the lack
1:39 pm
