Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Monday that Sen. Cory Booker was wrong to claim that President Trump is taking credit for an economic boom started by former President Barack Obama.

Booker, D-N.J., said over the weekend that Trump continues to take credit for economic milestones that should instead be credited to Obama.

CORY BOOKER WANTS TO REQUIRE FEDERAL LICENSE FOR GUN OWNERS

“We had a tax plan [in 2018] that was all about giving the wealthiest people more of a break,” Booker, also a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said on CNN.

Gingrich, R-Ga., said on “America’s Newsroom” that Booker “keeps repeating rhetoric that’s false,” adding that “anybody who’s serious knows that none of [the recovery] had anything to do with Barack Obama.”

LARRY KUDLOW FIRES BACK AT CORY BOOKER’S CLAIM OBAMA DESERVES CREDIT FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY

He said Trump has bested Obama-era GDP growth numbers every quarter since taking office, and that American manufacturing and wage growth has increased “dramatically.”

He added that many top Democrats instead want to push forward on the “high taxes, big regulations [and] anti-business attitudes” that led to a “very weak economy” in the past.

Top Trump adviser Larry Kudlow echoed Gingrich in blasting Booker’s claims.

“I’m just going to use the damn facts,” Kudlow said Sunday on Fox News.

“On the wage front, [average hourly earnings are] rising 3.2 percent overall. The bottom [poorest] quarter [of workers], 4.4 percent increase, the top quarter, 3.5 percent [increase].”

“I don’t know of any president in our lifetime that’s carried as many negative burdens from the political class as Donald Trump has,” Gingrich added.

Top Border Patrol official: Facilities not ‘designed to handle’ heavy flow of immigrants

A top border patrol official said Monday on “Fox & Friends” that facilities intended to house migrants and illegal immigrant detainees were “not designed to handle [the] type of flow” being seen along the Mexican border.

“This is a challenge unlike any we’ve ever faced before,” U.S. Border Patrol chief of law enforcement operations Brian Hastings said.

“We’re up to 474,000 arrests so far this fiscal year,” he added.

Hastings said that the prevalence of unaccompanied alien minors and family units adds to the stress the facilities are facing.

TRUMP ORDERS ASYLUM OVERHAUL, INCLUDING NEW FEE FOR APPLICANTS AND FASTER ADJUDICATIONS, AMID ‘SEVERE’ BORDER CRISIS

He said that as the situation at the border continues, the border patrol has had to release “processed, noncriminal family units” into the public.

“With outdated laws, we simply cannot apply a consequence” to those people, he said.

Late last month, President Trump called for a sweeping overhaul to the asylum system, floating a new application fee for asylum seekers.

Border agents made more than 100,000 arrests or denials of entry in March — the highest figure in 12 years, according to recent Fox News reporting.

The White House said in an April memo that “out of every 100 aliens subject to expedited removal who claim a fear of persecution, only about 12 will ultimately be granted asylum.”

Former US drug czar says national focus on opioid epidemic is overlooking real culprit

William Bennett, the nation’s first drug czar, said Monday that the debate about the opioid overdose epidemic wrongly focuses on prescription drugs.

While the government’s opioid crackdown has involved reducing the supply of legal opioids and reducing painkiller prescription rates, black market opioids such as illicit fentanyl and heroin actually have been the driving force of the epidemic in recent years, said Bennett during an interview on “Fox & Friends.”

“The nature of the problem has changed in the last two or three years,” said Bennett, who served as Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy under President George H. W. Bush. “It’s now fentanyl, it’s now heroin” that account for most of the overdoses.

A key reason, Bennett said, is that fentanyl and heroin are cheaper than prescription drugs.

AS DOCTORS TAPER OR END OPIOID PRESCRIPTIONS, MANY PATIENTS DRIVEN TO DESPAIR, SUICIDE

“When I was up in New Hampshire, they told me you [can pay] $10 for a pill –to get an Oxycontin, [but] two bucks to get heroin, three bucks to get fentanyl.”

“And that’s the nature of the problem,” Bennett said. “You talk to law enforcement people that will tell you they haven’t seen a lot of the other stuff – OxyContin — on the street but they’re loaded with these cases of fentanyl.”

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report last week said that about 70,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in 2017. Nearly 48,000 involved at least one type of opioid, roughly 30,000 involved fentanyl or some other kind of synthetic opioid, 15,500 involved heroin, and 14,500 involved prescription opioid painkillers. Other government data have indicated that many people who overdosed on prescription opioids stole them or obtained them from the person to whom they were prescribed.

Bennett said he is glad to see pharmaceutical companies prosecuted if they engaged in illegal activities – such as lying about the addictive properties of some painkillers — in order to boost sales of prescription opioids.

Just last week, in the latest of a series of actions against pharmaceutical companies, the founder of a highly addictive legal fentanyl spray was convicted on charges related to paying doctors millions in bribes to prescribe the drug.

The founder, John Kapoor, the 76-year-old former chairman of Insys Therapeutics, was found guilty of racketeering conspiracy after 15 days of jury deliberations.

TOUGH NEW OPIOID POLICIES LEAVE SOME CANCER AND POST-SURGERY PATIENTS WITHOUT PAINKILLERS

“They should be investigated and convicted if they committed a crime,” Bennett said, adding, “What I am concerned about is the emphasis [is] so much on these pharma companies – on OxyContin and Oxycodone—yes, they can be dangerous, yes, people have gotten addicted.”

“But most of the deaths that come from those drugs and where you see deaths from OxyContin, and Oxycodone, prescription drugs, it’s because of illegal diversion.”

The federal crackdown on legal opioids has led many prescribers to forcibly taper down or altogether abandon chronic pain patients who have in many cases responsibly taken painkillers for years in order to function.

Many states have implemented strict regulations as a result of a 2016 CDC guideline on opioid prescribing.

The CDC has said often that the guideline was not meant to be enforced, and that it was issued to help primary care physicians prescribing opioids to a first-time user.

“Most people, the vast majority of the people, who are prescribed these [painkillers] do not abuse them,” Bennett said. “The CDC had to come back and issue another kind of guidance, saying a lot of people who need pain pills are not getting them.”

Both the CDC and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned doctors last month not to abruptly stop prescribing opioid painkillers to patients who are taking them for chronic debilitating pain, generally lasting more than three months.

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview that Democrats “have to be prepared” that President Trump might not accept the possibility of a defeat in 2020, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said Pelosi has no evidence for such an “extravagant claim.”

In an interview with the New York Times published on Saturday, Pelosi said she worried that Trump might “poison the public mind” and “challenge each of the races” if Democrats don’t win by a large margin next year. During an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday, Hume argued that by Pelosi’s own admission, Trump doesn’t have a history of outright refusing election results.

“She said she does not support it with any evidence,” Hume said, adding that Pelosi’s recent comments about Trump and his administration make her appear “unhinged.”

“Trump whines and complains about election results and says they’re unfair all the time, but he’s never tried to negate any results that I’m aware of,” he continued.

Despite having never blatantly condemning election results, Trump has made some controversial claims about elections since his time in office, warning against “illegal voting” in the 2018 midterms and accusing “millions of people” of voting illegally for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

BRIT HUME SAYS PELOSI DOESN’T WANT MUELLER REPORT USING UP ‘ALL THE OXYGEN’ IN DC

PELOSI UNVEILS NEW ANTI-TRUMP MESSAGE CALLING PRESIDENT ‘IMMORAL, UNETHICAL, CORRUPT AND UNPATRIOTIC’

In the Times piece, Pelosi also warned her fellow Democrats against straying too far to the left, arguing that it’s important to maintain “mainstream” platforms if they want to beat Trump in 2020.

Numerous presidential candidates have pushed progressive agendas, most notably Bernie Sanders, who repeatedly describes his stance as a Democratic socialist.

Hume weighed in on the pressures faced by Pelosi in the modern political sphere, as she tries to push back against Trump but also urges her fellow party members to stay within the lines.

“She’s trying to be tough on Trump, but at the same time, she’s trying to emphasize that they have a centrist, a center-left agenda that will appeal to people,” Hume said.

“We had a tax plan [in 2018] that was all about giving the wealthiest people more of a break,” Booker, also a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said on CNN.

Gingrich, R-Ga., said on “America’s Newsroom” that Booker “keeps repeating rhetoric that’s false,” adding that “anybody who’s serious knows that none of [the recovery] had anything to do with Barack Obama.”

SARAH SANDERS: ‘TRULY MIND-BOGGLING’ HOW PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE SOCIALISM WITH TRUMP’S ECONOMY

He said Trump has bested Obama-era GDP growth numbers every quarter since taking office, and that American manufacturing and wage growth has increased “dramatically.”

He said that many top Democrats instead want to push forward on the “high taxes, big regulations [and] anti-business attitudes” that led to a “very weak economy” in the past.

“I don’t know of any president in our lifetime that’s carried as many negative burdens from the political class as Donald Trump has,” Gingrich added.

Gingrich’s comments came after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders expressed disbelief on Saturday at the fact that Democrats pushed “socialism” while living under President Trump’s growing economy.

BOOM: APRIL SAW JOBS, WAGES SURGE

“It’s truly mind-boggling. I don’t know why anyone would vote for a system that they are literally watching crumble before their very eyes,” Sanders said while appearing Saturday on “Watters’ World.”

“Under this president, [the] American economy is booming, we’re thriving, and we’re doing better than we’ve done in a long time,” she added.

She made those remarks just after the administration celebrated a positive jobs report which included 263,000 added jobs and the lowest unemployment rate since 1969.

Former Education Secretary William Bennett said Monday that Hillary Clinton needs to move on from her defeat in the 2016 presidential election.

“You gotta know when to hold ‘em, you gotta know when to fold ‘em,” Bennett said on “Fox & Friends.” “She really has to give this up.”

Bennett was referring to Clinton’s remark Saturday night in Los Angeles – where she appeared with her husband, Bill, as part of their “Evening with the Clintons” tour – in which she suggested that she should have been president.

HILLARY CLINTON SUGGESTS ELECTION ‘STOLEN’ FROM HER 

“I think it’s also critical to understand that,” Clinton said, “as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you.”

Clinton made similar remarks in an MSNBC interview on Wednesday. In the interview, she said foreign influence in an election could mean victory for the wrong candidate.

Clinton won the popular vote in her 2016 campaign against Trump by about 3 million votes, but lost the electoral college 304 to 227.

Bennett recalled when Trump was asked in 2016 if he would concede if he lost the election, and the Republican nominee said he’d think about it.

“Well, Hillary had trouble conceding,” said Bennett, who was education secretary in the Reagan administration, “Now we’re two years later, two-and-half years later, [and she’s] still having trouble.”

“She really has to give this up,” Bennett added. “It’s like watching a pitcher come back who’s way past his prime. She keeps coming [back].”

A new edition of the book “Obama: The Call of History,” by New York Times White House reporter Peter Baker reveals that former President Barack Obama and his aides saw Clinton’s “soulless” campaign in 2016 as a key reason for her defeat, according to The Daily Mail, which published excerpts.

Baker wrote that Obama and his camp saw Clinton as “the one who could not translate his strong record and healthy economy into a winning message.”

“Never mind that Trump essentially ran the same playbook against Clinton that Obama did eight years earlier, portraying her as a corrupt exemplar of the status quo,” Baker wrote, “She brought many of her troubles on herself. No one forced her to underestimate the danger in the Midwest states of Wisconsin and Michigan. No one forced her to set up a private email server that would come back to haunt her. No one forced her to take hundreds of thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs and other pillars of Wall Street for speeches. No one forced her to run a scripted, soulless campaign that tested eighty-five slogans before coming up with ‘Stronger Together.’”

Former ICE Acting Director Tom Homan: I respect Mark Morgan for getting back into the fight

Following the announcement Obama-era Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan will lead U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), former ICE Acting Director Tom Homan backed the president’s pick.

Having spent the majority of his career in law enforcement, Morgan will now switch gears to head ICE, should he be confirmed. Homan said during an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday morning that he understands the decision to acquiesce the president’s requests.

“You have to respect Mark Morgan for jumping back in the fight, right?” Homan said.

“Mark had a tough decision, but I think he’s doing the right thing. He’s spent his career in law enforcement, the president has asked him to help and he’s come back into the fight.”

He went on to discuss the challenges that Morgan will likely face in the role, as many politicians, including 2020 Democratic hopefuls such as Elizabeth Warren, have advocated for the abolition of the department.

“I respect anybody that’s willing to come back in such a difficult fight when half of Congress does not support what ICE does. He’s going to take that on every day, so hats off to Mark Morgan, I think he’s going to do a good job,” Homan said.

President Trump announced his decision on Twitter Sunday morning, calling Morgan a “true believer and American Patriot.”

Morgan has previously vocalized his support for President Trump’s border wall and illustrated his beliefs in an opinion piece for Fox News published in March.

“It’s time to stop listening to those driven by a personal political ideology and arm yourself with facts, thorough analysis, and the perspective of credible experts. It’s an emergency,” he wrote.

Joe Biden is using race as a divide and conquer campaign strategy: Deroy Murdock

Westlake Legal Group joe-biden-is-using-race-as-a-divide-and-conquer-campaign-strategy-deroy-murdock Joe Biden is using race as a divide and conquer campaign strategy: Deroy Murdock fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/joe-biden fox news fnc/politics fnc article Anna Hopkins 9d734045-809d-5c01-a223-a0ff5a198ba1

During a campaign train stop in Columbia, S.C. over the weekend, 2020 hopeful Joe Biden told voters that “Jim Crow is sneaking back in,” and Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock believes its the former vice president’s attempt to divide voter bases.

“Last year, 24 states introduced or enacted at least 70 bills to curtail the right the vote. And guess what — mostly directed at people of color. You see it. We have Jim Crow sneaking back in,” Biden said on Saturday. During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Murdock says Biden’s assertion is straight out of the “Democratic playbook.”

“He might start by apologizing for the Democratic Party‘s central, pivotal and indispensable role in introducing the Jim Crow laws and brutally enforcing them,” Murdock argued, before explaining to hosts the duration of time that Jim Crow laws persisted in the United States, essentially legally sanctioning segregation.

South Carolina is expected to be a crucial state in the Democratic primaries.

SANDERS SAYS ‘THERE’S NO QUESTION’ WHO IS MORE PROGRESSIVE BETWEEN HIM AND BIDEN

Murdock argued that Biden’s discussion of Jim Crow is an attempt to use race as a tool to drive the nation further apart.

“It’s all part of the Democratic playbook to keep race relations tense and boost black turnout in 2020,” Murdock said.

“Unfortunately instead of bringing us together the effort is to keep us apart in a divide and conquer strategy.”

Biden serving as the vice president to the nation’s first black president is certainly something he sees as a specializing factor – and he name-dropped the former president several times throughout Saturday’s rally, referring to him as a “friend” and “buddy.”

A Jewish congressman is calling for a criminal investigation into the Muslim American Society (MAS) after the group posted a video from an Islamic center in Philadelphia showing children saying “we will chop off their heads” for Allah and the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., appearing on “Fox & Friends” Monday, called the video “deeply disturbing,” “dangerous,” and “infuriating to see U.S. children being radicalized on U.S. soil.” The Middle East Media Research Institute, a watchdog group who translated the video and alerted Fox News Friday, said it is not an isolated incident.

SHOCKING VIDEO OF CHILDREN IN PHILADELPHIA MUSLIM SOCIETY: ‘WE WILL CHOP OFF THEIR HEADS’ FOR ALLAH

MAS did respond to Fox News on Friday, but in a statement Saturday, the group said the April 17 video was “unfortunately” uploaded to the Philadelphia’s chapter page “without verifying the content..and making sure it conforms to our hate-free policy…” MAS added the person behind the video has been dismissed, claiming the space was rented to an outside group. The group announced plans for sensitivity training.

“Not all songs were properly vetted,” MAS wrote. “This was an unintended mistake and an oversight in which the center and the students are remorseful. MAS will conduct an internal investigation to ensure this does not occur again.”

But the Army veteran, who spent time at Fort Dix outside of Philadelphia, said MAS’ response is even more infuriating, especially given the group’s alleged connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, something MAS denies.

GLOBAL GROUP OF CHRISTIANS, JEWS WORKING TO ‘SECURE EVERY SYNAGOGUE IN THE WORLD’

“It indicates that maybe they aren’t outraged at the fact that they are radicalizing and indoctrinating their own children, it’s that maybe they’re upset they exposed themselves by posting the video onto their own Facebook account,” Zeldin said. “I’m very bothered by it.”

He said it’s unacceptable that MAS is investigating itself.

“They had children talking about chopping off of heads, liberating Al-Aqsa Mosque,” he said. “The message isn’t one that you play and have these kids talk about unintended. That’s unacceptable and obviously unbelievable.”

TRUMP: ‘VIOLENCE AND TERRORISM AGAINST PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS MUST END’

The shocking video, showing children wearing Palestinian scares and reading radical Islamic terrorism-themed poetry, comes at a time when the Anti-Defamation League reports there were 1,879 anti-Semitic incidents last year in the United States, with a spike of 13 percent worldwide.

To counter that, Zeldin introduced a bill to monitor Palestinian textbooks.

“The Palestinians have anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hate – they incite violence in their own classrooms,” Zeldin said. “This has been going on for years. The United States, in the past, has supplemented efforts to fight back against the hate that’s in the Palestinian textbooks.”

Zeldin said information from a recently declassified report shows the State Department lied to Congress about Palestinian education.

“So we introduced legislation to improve the reporting from the State Department to apply pressure to the Palestinians to have them to correct the material, because as we saw in that video in Philadelphia, this is something that is happening every day on the ground in schools and in mosques overseas, and that needs to be fought there as we see it manifest itself as we see the news over the weekend with over 600 rockets launched from Gaza to Israel,” Zeldin said.

MEDIA DIDN’T CALL SRI LANKA MASSACRE AN ATTACK ON CHRISTIANS. HERE’S WHY A MUSLIM SCHOLAR CALLS IT ‘VERY TROUBLING’

Muslim scholar Dr. Qanta Ahmed said the IRS and the government need to look into the funding behind the video where children are parroting terrorist ideology while parents are recording it on American soil.

“The Muslim American Society has a history of being founded by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1993. That’s confirmed in FBI investigations,” Ahmed told “Fox & Friends First” Monday morning. “The Muslim Brotherhood is the mothership of Islamist terrorism and central to that is a cosmic enmity with Judaism, so they have major problems furthermore there’s been investigations by the Middle East Forum that American taxpayer finances go to groups like this to the tune of $310,000 since 2007, going to groups like the Muslim American Society, though over $47 million goes to groups.”

She added that terrorists see indoctrinating children as their investments as part of a global assault on Jews.

“This is a form of contemporary anti-Semitism,” Ahmed said. “This is Islamist anti-Semitism which is very troubling, and it plays, not only here into the demonization and dangers against Jews, but the global delegitimization and assault on Israel that we’re seeing now in Gaza.”
