6:03 pm
facility was just minutes away. thanks for joining us. i'm elizabeth macdonald. "the evening edit" starts right now. ♪. elizabeth: welcome to the show. you're watching the fox business network. let's take you to surfside, florida. it is day five in the search for survivors from that terrifying lethal and dangerous condo collapse. fox's steve harrigan has the latest. steve? reporter: elizabeth, we saw another round of visits to the site of that collapsed condominium by relatives, close family members. they take buss from the hotel where they're staying here to visit the site. some apparently screaming the names of those missing loved ones upon arrival. others praying, others crying, a very difficult scene. we spoke to religious advisors who accompany the bus trips. it is a very emotional moment. we hear reports that some family members are losing patience with
6:04 pm
the pace of the rescue operation. no one has been pulled alive from the rubble since thursday. some lack of patience with a explanation how this condominium could simply collapse, 1:30 in the morning on thursday. that is not the scene however we've seen here out in front of this hotel. a short time ago we saw a man embrace a first responder and a rabbi, thanking them for their work. his son was missing. here is what he had to say. >> i don't know what i would -- [inaudible]. my whole life here and, it is not -- waiting to die. i want to thank you for the bottom of my heart. >> we'll be with you every step of the day. okay? it doesn't end here. on the contrary we move forward from here and we're with you. reporter: that man's son was actually one of those who died, who postively identified in that collapse. one of 10 who has been identified. he was thanking the first responder for returning his dead
6:05 pm
son, for giving him certainty, for allowing him to bury his own son. as far as numbers go, 10 dead, 151 still missing. elizabeth, back to you. elizabeth: steve, thank you so much for your reporting. we'll stay on the story. thank you so much. we begin this new segment with texas congressman brian babin. it is great to have you back on, sir. okay, former president trump is relaunching his rallies. what is the potential impact on who controls congress and the white house? >> well you know, it goes without saying, liz, by the way, it is always good to be with you, president trump is the defacto leader of most of the republican party and i'll tell you what, i'm glad to see a successful rally he had in ohio. i think this puts a lot of pressure on the leadership of the house and the senate, on the democratic side. and all i can tell you is, they
6:06 pm
have, they have been after this president for, you know from the very time that he took his elevator ride down from trump tower, they have been after this president. he has been the most effective president in terms of policy that i have ever seen in my life and i will tell you, you can look no further than the loss of our prosperity we had after covid hit us. look what is happening down at the border. it just over and over again, what the biden administration an kamala harris around the rest of those people have just proven out they are not up to the job of putting america first and making sure that we continue to have prosperity. elizabeth: the former president is scheduled to visit the texas border this week. he will hold a rally over the july 4th weekend in sarasota, florida. the former president is working to unseat the 10 gop members of congress, including ohio representative anthony gonzalez who voted to impeach trump for
6:07 pm
his role inciting the january 6th capitol riots. we have the manhattan d.a. reportedly about to file criminal charges against the trump organization this week. critics say that could deal a blow to trump just as he is getting started to hold his rallies. we've got nikki haley, mike pence, ron desantis, also looking to 2024, what do you say about that? the republican party has to be united and for the push for a freer, stronger, prosperous america. we cannot be splintered. we can't have one group, one wing going one way and one going the other. that is a prescription for a continuation of this disasterous biden administration and control by the majority of the democrats. we've got to remain a united front if we can take back the congress in two years, actually a year-and-a-half. and then take back the white house. and look, a lot of these people you just mentioned, governor
6:08 pm
desantis included has been a very good friend of mine. i served in congress with him. he is doing a phenomenal job in florida. i appreciate his support for texas in our fight for the border. he will send dozens of officers over to help governor abbott try to secure this border. and look, let me just say this, the left is always going to be after donald trump and they're always going to be after the republican party. and i what i would ask when will the left hold their own party accountable? they never seem, has to be the a double standard. elizabeth: we hear you. let's listen to former president trump at the rally on saturday. watch this. >> after just five months the biden administration is already a complete and total catastrophe. [booing] i told you. crime is surging murders are soaring, police departments are being gutted, illegal aliens are
6:09 pm
overrunning their borders. joe biden is destroying our nation right before our very own eyes. all it is going down the tubes because they don't know what the hell they're doing. we're also right about joe biden and the democrats extremism on open borders, on socialism, on taxes, on energy, on the green new deal hoax. elizabeth: republicans though privately say two things are working against trump here. it is the capitol riots, his statements inciting the capitol riots and also repeated claims of vote fraud and that he won in a landslide. so you see straw polls, that is coming up about trump. what do you say? >> well, you know, let's just say this, again, they are always going to go after president trump. they hate president trump. his policies worked. we had a secure border under him that last year-and-a-half. we had a great, the best, most
6:10 pm
prosperous economy we ever had. biden seems to give in to the radical left. he always seems to put america last. it is just a different approach with donald trump. who always, always, puts them first. let me just say this, bad policies have bad consequences, liz. elizabeth: okay. >> america is seeing this first-hand out of this biden administration and kamala harris. they're bringing america down, what they're doing. elizabeth: got it. congressman brian babin, thanks for joining us, really appreciate it. let's get reaction from fox news contributor jason chaffetz. who is the front-runner? is it desantis, trump, pence, nikki haley, pompeo? what is your take on these events here, what do you say? >> i would put in senator tim scott and governor kristi noem into that mix. what you're seeing is a very strong array of possibilities for the presidential race on the republican side of the aisle but
6:11 pm
each of them understands and knows that the first hurdle is 2022 and, you will see people out there trying to win back the house, take control of the senate. that is job one. it makes 2024 much more plausible and much more doable because with democrats right now holding the house and senate and the presidency, it is untenable and anybody who is trying to jump that 2022 will understand very quickly from voters that job one is to dispose of nancy pelosi as the speaker of the house. elizabeth: we hear you. florida governor ron desantis is topping trump in a recent straw poll. it is the western conservative summit's presidential straw poll. we heard from republicans mitt romney and adam kinzinger slamming trump for continuing to make claims of vote fraud. romney ridiculed his rally as entertaining as wwf. no short challenge has been successful challenging the results. so your takeaway on how it goes,
6:12 pm
moves forward with trump looking like he may get back in the race? >> i think it is a mistake for republicans and conservatives to get in the war of personalities. i think a united republican party will rally around policies. policies affect how people will live, what happens in the country. that is not a dodge on specific individuals but what unites us, with some of the naysayers of donald trump don't understand is that the american people really did like the policies that he was implementing, a reasonable, regulatory scheme that was reduced from what obama and biden were doing. lower taxes, a thriving economy, limited government. these types of things. a strong police presence. an accountable presence on the border. all of these things unite us. so, for those that want to just get into the war of personalities that will divide
6:13 pm
us naturally. that you have to rally behind policies. that is the strength of republican party. elizabeth: got it. jason chaffetz, good to have you on. thanks so much for joining us tonight. >> thank you. elizabeth: next up the justice department reports a quote, staggering rise in violent crime across the country but new york democrat alexandria ocasio-cortez calls concerns about all of that, quote, hysteria, despite a double-digit spike higher in shooting deaths in her hometown of new york city. and we've got this, msnbc commentators again without evidence downplay and politicize the rise in violent crime from coast to coast. instead of just reporting about it. yoga -- joe gimaldi. >> cedric richmond said republicans defunded police not
6:14 pm
supporting the american rescue plan. when the president didn't talk about funding the police during the american rescue. state and local funding, something supported by the president, a lot of democrats supported for the bill could help insure local companies were kept on the beat in communities across the country. as you know, didn't receive a single republican vote that funding has been used to keep cops on the beat. other than work, it's the weekend. yeah, yeah.

♪. >> let's welcome back to the show fraternal order of police vice president joe gamaldi. great to see you back again. murder rate in the u.s., higher than the '60s, growing by more than 20%. doj report as quote, staggering rise in violent crime. what was your reaction when you heard new york democrat alexandria ocasio-cortez calling concerns about that, quote hysteria? >> well, you know it is comical to me someone who has the audacity or arrogance say this is just hysteria, if you look at her own community right there in new york city the murders are up over 50%. then she was dismissive of the statistics, we don't have to pay attention to that. these are not just stats.
6:19 pm
these rue people. they are fathers, mothers daughters sons, and they are being murdered in our streets. congresswoman cortez said the quiet part out to everyone. that is the people on the radical left, some in the media selling to the public that defunding the police will make their communities safer, they're charlatans. they're essentially selling the public a bad bill of goods. as a result our communities are going to suffer. elizabeth: yeah, you know the other thing too, the criticism democrats like alexandria ocasio-cortez, they're trying to change the narrative after a year of defunding the police, of defunding cops. she is doubling down on defunding cops too. double-digit spike higher in shooting deaths in her hometown of new york. there was a second tourist shot in broad daylight in times square just hours before broadway reopened. a month ago another tourist was shot. joe, i would like your reaction
6:20 pm
to this, msnbc commentators again without evidence, downplaying and politicizing the rise in violence and crime. you will first hear alexandria ocasio-cortez and then the msnbc commentators. watch this. >> we're seeing headlines about percentage increases, i want to say any amount of arm is unacceptable and too much but but i also want to make sure this hysteria, that this doesn't drive hysteria, that we look at these numbers in context so we can make responsible decisions about what to allocate in that context. >> what's your take on, i mean, do you really think there is an uptick in crime the way that republicans are framing it? >> i don't necessarily think there is an uptick in crime and i can tell you that i know first-hand, you know statistics can be manipulated. elizabeth: what context and what statistics are manipulated? what are they talking about?
6:21 pm
i can tell you blacks are dying of murders, homicides in greater rates than ever before in half a dozen sis. what are they talking about? >> what you're really seeing the narrative matters. lives don't matter to them. all that matters is the narrative. we had oakland city council defund the police $17 million while their homicides spiked by 87%. the fact of the matter they say law enforcement doesn't matter, we delivered historic crime reductions over the last two decades in this country that led to a urban renaissance. the fact of the matter we can do it again. if we restore the rule of law, we hold violent criminals accountable and embrace the broken window theories, we can deliver that. all we ask is for our communities to support us and elect officials. let me show you how wrong they are, how they cater to the far left on some of these things, polling doesn't support it. a recent "gallup poll" says 81%
6:22 pm
of black americans want same or more police in their neighborhoods. latinos, said 15% wanted to defund the police department. they're way off base. stop paying attention to the radicals. elizabeth: jen psaki white house press secretary is trying to flip the americans, saying the republicans are defunding police not supporting more spending in rescue package. this people say is incompetent analysis. in the last year's convention at the dnc they didn't mention crime or riots. michael dukakis says what are you doing about defunding the police. they worried about losing control of congress next year because of defunding the police, lifting immunity protections for cops, cashless bail, shorter sentences. you're right, polls are showing people don't want this, and there is a crisis in policing. thousands of cops are quitting. nancy pelosi called cops
6:23 pm
stormtroopers. ilhan omar say policing is rooted in evil. joe, your final word. >> you saw a bit of washington speak trying to convince the public that somehow people are voting against $350 billion for officers when it was a part of a bigger infrastructure plan. if you just put a bill out said let's fund the police at 350 billion, i'm sure everybody will sign on to that, except for the radical individuals who continue to taught defunding the police. let me tell you anecdotally, morale has never been worse the last 16 years i've been a police officer. we can't get anybody to take this job. retirements are through the years. there will be nobody left to protect the communities that desperately want police officers in their neighborhoods. elizabeth: joe gamaldi, thank you for your service to our country. thanks for being on. good to have you. dr. marty makary is next. house republicans launching a new hearing into the origins of the covid-19 pandemic that killed more than 600,000 americans. democrats led by nancy pelosi however continue to stonewall

of public health, fox news contributor, dr. marty makary. hey, great to have you back on, doctor. what do you expect to come out of the house gop hearing into the origins of the pandemic this week? nancy pelosi is stonewalling. she is blocking any hearings. she wants to focus on the capitol riots. what do you say? >> liz, i think that a lot of people want closure. people who have lost loved ones want closure. i can tell you as a doctor when someone loses a loved one, they want to understand the root cause. we're about to see a political fight ensue because members of congress asked the nih for several documents they have not turned over. relationships going back years ago to 2018, 2017. the $7.9 million that the nih gave to ecohealth to fund bat coronaviruses and other coronaviruses in southeast asia. this letter of march 18th, that cathy mcmorris rogers led, along with some members of congress demanding documents from the nih that is likely to
6:29 pm
be a big source of the hearings. people have a right to demand more information right now. elizabeth: more than 600,000 americans dead. dr. fauci has not indicated whether he will testify. he has reportedly been invited. we've got disturbing new footage, doctor. it is surfacing now, of an ally of dr. fauci. you know him. he is dr. peter daszak. it is at odds with dr. fauci's repeated denial of funding gain of function research at the wuhan lab. in just a second you will hear dr. daszak, as you pointed out he funneled nih funding to the wuhan lab. dr. daszak appears to boast about creating, engineering, quote, killer coronaviruses at the wuhan lab. listen to this. >> you create pseudo particles. you insert the spike proteins from those particles, see if they bind to human cells. each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic in people. so you narrow down the field.
6:30 pm
you reduce the cost, you end up with a small number of viruses that really do look like killers. elizabeth: really do like killers. again, really do like killers. number one, do we need that for vaccines? number two, couldn't these killer viruses leak from any lab? >> well, that is exactly why the virology and scientific community has been split for many years now about whether or not gain of function research should ever be performed and the argument against is that when you mess with mother nature you're more likely to cause a global pandemic than you are to develop an early treatment for it. look sequencing is so good nowadays. people forget that. you can sequence your entire human genome in one hour f a virus goes at large, we can sequence it at that time. the mrna was created in a matter of days. it was designed on a computer model in days.
6:31 pm
we shouldn't messing with mother nature. all those people, peter daszak, anthony fauci, all these scientists went around the country talking about the value of gain of function research when done properly, they should apologize and that camp should officially collapse. we shouldn't hear anymore about it. elizabeth: we don't have an aids vaccine yet, right? we don't have a aids vaccine. dr. fauci has been accused by house republicans and senate republicans about lying to congress funding the wuhan lab. senator rand paul demands he is remove from any position of authority. i want to go on to this. bill maher is slamming google and facebook sore censoring wuhan lab potential leak saying you were wrong. watch this. >> facebook banned any post for four months about covid coming from a lab. of course now even the biden administration is looking into this. >> right. >> google, a "wall street journal" reporter

asked the head of google's health division, notice they don't do autofill searches for coronavirus lab leak the way they do it for any other question. the guy said, we want to make sure the search isn't leading down pathways we would find to be not authoritative information. well you were wrong, google and facebook. we don't know. the reason why we want you is because we're checking on this [bleep] elizabeth: your reaction, doctor, what do you say? >> well, look this wouldn't be the first time that we've seen a lab leak out of china. in 1977, h1n1 which killed 700,000 people was believed to have come from a laboratory. we know there was a coverup in china in the 2:00 sars outbreak though believed not to come from a lab. to believe big tech is a part of the changing the narrative of course is very frustrating. elizabeth: dr. marty makary,
