tv   The Evening Edit  FOX Business  April 5, 2021 6:00pm-7:00pm EDT

6:00 pm
pull the all-star game out of atlanta over that controversial election law. he said it is shameful that america's pastime is getting involved in politics. dagen? dagen: thank you, grady. great to see you. that does it for us on "fox business tonight." "the evening edit" starts right now. elizabeth: tonight president biden's big tax-and-spend plan now hitting a wall in the senate. up to seven senate democrats may reject it the biden tax hikes there. according to democrat senator joe manchin. it could be did on arrival in the senate. president biden trying to argue the tax hikes will make the economy quote better without explaining that? if that is so, why was the president and the first lady using tax shelters to avoid hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal income taxes, payroll taxes as republicans now point out? with us tonight senator ron johnson, congressman tom emmer and buddy carter, joe concha,
6:01 pm
jim trusty, darren porcher, art del cueto. we have more on the biden family long history using tax shelters to avoid taxes and their frequent use of off-balance sheet companies, shell companies to bury the cash they make from deal-making overseas. we'll break it down. plus hunter biden's big 180. he doesn't remember if he owns that infamous laptop at the sender of multiple probes. he admits it certainly could be his. his book is out tomorrow. where is the media? where is facebook? where is twitter's apology over this after they wrongly censored the "new york post" hunter biden story? hunter biden appears to admitting to. if hunter biden has a selective shaky memory why would you want to buy his book? to the "60 minutes" report about florida. "60 minutes" story is blowing up. a florida mayor calls the "60 minutes" report innings intentionally false. it left out important context.
6:02 pm
"60 minutes" arguing that that's governor was doing vaccine favoritism with donations from publix. 90% of florida seniors live here a publix supermarket. seniors are most at risk from covid. local officials approached publix on vaccines are you ready to go? because the pharmacies in the state weren't ready. chris christie saying president biden is lying about georgia's new voting law. president biden and obama applaud major league baseball boycott in georgia even though it will hurt millions of black families in georgia? mexico, canada, france, already have voter i.d. where is the media outrage over that? more americans disapprove than approve how joe biden is handling the border crisis. homeowners, businesses are suffering major property damage and crime.
6:03 pm
plus when the border patrol recently arrested two men from yemen trying to illegally enter the u.s. they're on the fbi's terrorist watch list. and the no-fly list. we'll break this down. we have a lot of stories for you. i'm elizabeth macdonald. "the evening edit" starts right now. ♪. elizabeth: we begin tonight with republican senator ron johnson is back with us. we're so excited to see you, senator. okay, you heard the open. what is with senator joe manchin saying up to seven democrats are going to oppose biden's 28% tax hike on companies? is this thing dead on arrival? >> i sure hope so because increasing the corporate tax rate is not going to do anything for pulling us out of the covid recovery and long-term economic prosperity and opportunity for americans. look what we did in 2017. back then the corporate tax collected was a little under $300 billion.
6:04 pm
in 2019 before the covid recession hit it was about $230 billion. so we lost about the $70 billion worth of revenue. i think we probably would have made that all up with a strong economy but the biden administration is talking about spending thousands of billions of dollars on all these boondoggles. so again you have to keep the business, the american business tax rate compared competitive with the world. that is what we did in 2017. elizabeth: right. senator, joe biden claims he wants to protect medicare and obamacare but joe biden and the first lady reportedly avoided paying half a million dollars in payroll taxes by diverting $13 million from book deals and speeches into tax shelters. indiana republican jim banks, who is the chair of the gop study committee, saying do you, president biden intend to undo your hypocrisy to pay funds to the american people. when you saw that number, that is pretty high, half a million bucks they avoided. >> it is.
6:05 pm
again part and parcel we see from some democrats will utilize the tax code, probably did it legally but then criticize others for doing the exact same thing t speaks to the insanity of our tax code. the people can utilize it that way but what i'm even more concerned about in terms of the biden's taxes they made $16 million of income since he left the vice-presidency but only reported about $3.2 million. did i say billion? 16 million in income and 3.2 million in assets. where did all the money go? that came from real good reporting on the part of john solomon. my question is, where did all that $16 million go? elizabeth: that's a good question. you know, the other thing too, tax pros said there is no reason for the bidens to use tax shelters like s-corporations other than to avoid payroll taxes. even biden's top aide neera tanden said these are quote loopholes. you're right, when he left office the bidens earned double
6:06 pm
what they earned the on bind 19 years combined. where did the money go, do you think. >> i have no idea. our tax code is insane. treats different types of income differently which i don't think we should. in terms of medicare tax, the payroll tax in general is capped at a certain level because it is really designed, for example, social security is designed to pay for your retirement plan. medicare there is no cap. so, you know, i have never particularly agreed with that aspect of it. if you need to raise money for these programs, let's do it in a simple rational tax system. we don't have that right now. elizabeth: yeah. but you and senator grassley, you did a story, a report, rather, deep dive into the biden family history. they like s-corps. they like to use off-balance sheet shell companies to bury cash they get from overseas. delaware is known for all of this. they like to do all of this with real estate infrastructure deals that the biden family has done in romania, iraq, costa rica. working with russia, china, you've seen this kind of
6:07 pm
activity in the past, right? >> absolutely. again i'm concerned about the complex web of foreign entanglements particularly within china but really all over the world. so you simply can't trace it. when you're trying to hide income the way you do it you set up corporation after corporation after corporation. you layer these things. for example, one of the corporations they used was called hudson west. there are eight or nine different hudson west corporations. you don't know who owns them. you don't know where the money is flowing back and forge. that is how you launder money, you have kinds of different transactions which makes it very difficult for anybody to catch, to uncover what is all going on. elizabeth: yeah. senator, you and your senator chuck grassley's report said hunter biden opened up the family to counterintelligence and extortion. hunter biden's new book is out tomorrow. he is claiming everything he did was ethical. indicating in email he used off-balance sheet corps to avoid
6:08 pm
having to register with the government as foreign agent. your final word on that? >> he may not have definition broken any laws but i would ask people, conflict of interest in buries marks he made $4 million, why? obvious why. just looks sleazy. it may not be by the book illegal but it is sleazy. all these foreign entanglements. we don't know what china knows about their financial dealings. we don't know what they could use as potential blackmail. remember, the media and the democrats claimed potential blackmail when they were pushing the russia hoax against trump. here we've got very, verified financial entanglements and transactions could lead to serious counterintelligence and extortion, blackmail threats. elizabeth: all right, senator ron johnson, great to see you again. thanks so much for joining us. come back soon. >> have a great day. elizabeth: welcome to the show, minnesota republican, you too, minnesota republican tom emmer
6:09 pm
from the gop study committee. you heard what we were talking about about the biden family use of tax shelters to avoid payroll taxes. what is your quick take on that? >> something doesn't smell right, elizabeth. people need to be transparent. it is very interesting how they give the hip hypocrisy, blame others what they are doing. like their so-called infrastructure bill. this $2.3 trillion bill, proposal is not about infrastructure. it is about spending on the democrats crazy, radical socialist agenda. they tell you something that in fact it is something completely different. elizabeth: you know, we got president biden, he wants to outshine even fdr in infrastructure spending but you know, senator roy blunt, he is the fourth highest ranking republican in the senate, saying stop with the poison pill spending. focus on bridges and roads. you have to cut it down to
6:10 pm
$615 billion, not 2 and a quarter trillion. democrat senator quo joe manchin said seven democrat senators are opposing this. what do you make of this? >> i think they recognize this is way beyond anything mainstream america is looking at. this will be difficult for themsell even with the friends in left-wing media. up 2.3% proposal, 6%, less than 6% goes to roads and bridges. about 115 billion. you can skinny up even more to roads, bridges, infrastructure. it is about funding a radical left socialist agenda that includes defunding the police, implementing the green new deal, open borders and closing our schools. do you know that the $2.3 trillion proposal, $2.3 trillion is four times what it cost to build the interstate highway system from coast to coast. i think they realize that people will start to scrutinize this
6:11 pm
proposal. elizabeth: that's really interesting but you know president biden said he wants to ram it through without any republican votes and then he is trying to topspin it that this, you know, he can't -- he now saying it will be still be bipartisan even though he wants to ram it through without republican votes. all the campaign talk of unity, looks like the president had no intention of unity. mod i can't think moderate democrats are balking at this. >> saying about structure. regard letters of the proposal it is my way or the highway. this guy campaigned as moderate. he is radical, being advised by alexandria ocasio-cortez and other socialists that are in the house as well as bernie sanders. elizabeth: yep. >> the chair of his budget committee. they want to use this to pass a massive tax bill that is the largest since 1942. they want to tell people that this is only going to apply to
6:12 pm
people earning $400,000 or more. elizabeth this, is a huge middle, tax increase and by the way, just look what he has done to everyone on the lower economic ladder? with his energy policies, with his, since the end of january we have gas climbing. elizabeth: yeah. but i see that too. gas prices are going up. look at pete buttigieg, the transportation secretary. he was caught on camera driving his car, his suv up to work and then basically, getting a bicycle out of the back of the car in order to make it look like he is bicycling to his job in order to appear that he is green and you know, progressive and liberal. i mean this is insanity. this is, this is cuckoo. what do you think? >> it shows you, elizabeth, they have no limit. there is no limit to their hypocrisy. whether creating shell corporation after shell corporation, taking advantage of
6:13 pm
the tax code that as senator johnson pointed out, has so many inconsist consists in it, they want to criticize others at the same time doing what they are critical of. this is just, it is laughable that pete buttigieg would literally drive a black suv to within biking distance of his office, get out, get on the bike, trying to get a photo-op. do as i say, not as i do. elizabeth: question. looks like takes awful lot of work to do all of that with that photo shoot. congressman emmer, thanks so much. why not just like be honest? coming up fox news contributor joe concha on on the "60 minutes" blowing up in "60 minutes" face. "60 minutes" left out important context trying to argue florida governor doing vaccine favoritism in consideration for political donations to publix. we'll break this down, what "60 minutes" left out. did they just take a big hit to the credibility?
6:14 pm
the story next. >> governor desantis has been right in every single tough decision that he had to take when it is, when it has been dealing with this pandemic. he has been pilloried in the media and by the left. even with the handing out of vaccines, right? he decided to make seniors first, knot follow cdc guidelines and turns out finally admitted he was right, followed his guidance. i think he is right here again. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

♪ elizabeth: back with us now is fox news contributor joe concha. joe, looks like the "60 minutes" report on florida is blowing up in six my inches anyone's face. they tried to argue florida's governor was doing vaccine favoritism for political donations from publix. 90% of florida senior citizens live near a publix supermarket. what is going on here? >> publix according to a "axios" poll is the number one trusted brand in that state. what we're seeing more and more with the vaccines when the government distributes them it is not as impactful or as when private companies doing it. desantis was ahead of the game,
6:19 pm
governor desantis bringing in publix. "60 minutes" was implying it is a pay-to-play. even democrats in the state of florida are pushing back on this story. you have mayor dave kerner, democrat from palm beach county. he called the report, not just they got it wrong or made a mistake, intentionally false, unquote. so what we're seeing now more and more is people pushing back on this from the other party which is a very rare thing we see these days saying, "60 minutes" not only got it wrong, they purposely misled, 17, 8 million viewers on this one. elizabeth: you're right, what they're saying. seniors are at risk of getting covid than the rest of the population. publix is pushing back on this too. to your point the outgoing florida emergency management director, and mayor kerner, said publix was recommended because the other pharmacies were not ready to start vaccinations that local florida officials went to
6:20 pm
publix, not the other way around because publix was ready to go before the state pharmacies on this? >> precisely. as you said, it is, more prevalent, i don't if you been there it florida. been many times in my life. can't go without a couple blocks without a publix. like starbucks in new york here, right? but what i want to know is, okay, you're going to do this piece, this hit piece on desantis. when will you get around, "60 minutes," doing any reporterring own andrew cuomo the way he handled covid particularly with nursing homes and putting covid-19 positive patients back into facilities when you had the uss comfort which president trump supplied or javits center? "60 minutes" didn't want to get around to this one. we saw this during the campaign. lesley stahl interview where president trump had to beg stahl to look into the hunter biden allegations. she said, quote, it can't be
6:21 pm
verified. can't put it on the air. it is verified now. "60 minutes" has more track record being unfortunately biased. this is the number one broadcast news magazine in the country, on for 50 years. you thought you could trust those guys but apparently that is not the case anymore. elizabeth: we hear you, joe, publix is blasting "60 minutes" being deceptive and wrong. governor desantis is also blasting "60 minutes" for a deceptive segment. let's show you the part that was not shown to viewers. let's watch governor desantis explain what was going on in florida. watch this. >> first of all, when we did the, the first pharmacies that had it were cvs and walgreen's. they had a long-term care mission. so they were going to the honk term care facilities. they got vaccine in the middle of december. they have started going to the long-term care facilities the third week of december to do ltcs. that was their mission. that was very important and we trusted them to do that. as we got into january, we wanted to expand the distribution points.
6:22 pm
so yes, you had the counties, you had some drive-through sites, you had hospitals doing a lot but we wanted to get it into the communities more. we reached out to other retail pharmacies, publix, walmart. obviously cvs and walgreens had to finish that mission. we'll use you as soon as you're done for that. pour the publix they were the first one to raise their hands saying they were ready to go. elizabeth: david, first ready to go. first reporting that publix is not in poor neighborhoods. there are 1600 pharmacies throughout the state giving out the vaccination for free. so the reporting needs to be done there about what really is going on with the vaccination effort in florida because it looks ex"60 minutes," their story is falling apart right now? >> right. you look at numbers, elizabeth, since early january, cases among those over 65 in the state of florida are down 80%. the vaccine distribution going through places like publix, using the private sector, is
6:23 pm
absolutely working. then brings me back to this one poll really jaw-dropping when i read it. from "axios," surveymonkey, talk about intentionally reporting false news, 92% of republicans think the media reports fake news. the poll finds, 79, eight in 10, independents think the same thing. as do majority of democrats. elizabeth: wow. >> this is about, elizabeth, ron desantis, talk to any trump supporter, if donald trump doesn't run in 2024 he is their number one choice by a country mile. the mainstream is seeing that desantis could be a real threat to win the nomination, to win the presidency because he has a very good record to run on in florida. the. elizabeth: okay. joe concha, you're terrific. we love having you on. thanks so much for joining us. come back soon. >> loaf being here, liz. elizabeth: great reporting. terrific reporting from joe concha there. just ahead georgia congressman buddy carter, chris christie
6:24 pm
really hammering president biden saying president biden is quote lying about georgia's new voting law. as president biden and barack obama applaud major league baseball's boycott of georgia, even though it will hurt millions of black families and workers as georgia could lose up to $190 million in revenue. the story next. >> all they're going to do is hurt hard-working georgians that have been working for over a year to put that game together, who have been through covid, who are excited about the opportunity to host that game and all you're going to do is hurt working people. and you know, if you do one, you better get wearing wherever that game moves, what are they doing in that state. i guarranty georgia has as much opportunity for people to vote and participate. ♪.

6:29 pm
barack obama are doing this is to spread misinformation and to lie and mislead people. that is exactly what they're doing. they have achieved that with major league baseball. major league baseball is pathetic. what they have done here is simply pathetic. they have fallen victim to the far left and the woke culture. they have no, they have no courage whatsoever and what they're doing is hurting people in georgia, particularly small businesses and particularly minority small businesses. it is just inexplicable what they're doing. it is really pathetic. elizabeth: let's watch governor chris christie really go after president biden, really hammered him for quote, lying, watch. >> it expands early voting. the president said it ended it. listen here is what joe biden has to live with when he wakes up this morning on easter morning. he is doing exactly what he sat around in the campaign and
6:30 pm
transition accusing of donald trump doing. lying to cause racial divisions in this country. that is what he is doing and he is liar and hypocrite. talk about what the georgia law is about. dropboxs are permanent part of the georgia landscape prior to covid. they are now. minimum of 17 days of early voting including two saturdays and two optional sundays. you will have all voters being able to have multiple ways to prove who they are, driver's license, last four numbers of social security, even utility bill or a free i.d. provided by the state of georgia. and voting is going to be from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. as it is right now in georgia. elizabeth: he laid it out there pretty deftly. what do you think of, what is with all the misleading reporting on this and democrats misleading in their topspin, what is going on? >> this is the playbook. straight out of the democratic
6:31 pm
playbook. certainly "the washington post" gave joe biden four pinocchios. even cnn admitted they're misleading people and telling lies. when you have that network around that paper exposing democrats you know this is a problem. this is the way the democrats want to do it. they want to misinform people, lie to people. this made voting easier in the state of georgia and cheating harder. this i applaud the state legislature for what they did. they improved voting regulations in the state of georgia, with 75% of georgians said we needed. more voter i.d. we needed better regulations. 60% of all democrats said it. 69% of african-americans agreed to that. elizabeth: you know major league baseball has hypocrisy too. you note a photo i.d. to pick up tickets at will call. we have 35 states, dozens of countries that have voter i.d., including mexico, canada,
6:32 pm
france. the supreme court backed voter i.d. georgia is basically tightening the rules that were dramatically loosened during the 2020 election that led to widespread chaos. reporter phil wegmann, he asked white house press secretary jen psaki, okay, four major league boycotting atlanta, georgia, are you going to boycott the 2022 winter olympics in china? she didn't like that question. >> no, i can understand why. the hip pock express sy here with major league baseball to begin with. here is major league baseball trying to punish a state that makes it easier to vote, expands voting yet here in the same week that they removed the all-star game from the state of georgia they signed a contract with a communist-china backed company. the hypocrisy there is just ridiculous. look at communist china, what they're doing. they are slamming hong kong.
6:33 pm
they're persecuting minorities. elizabeth: got it. >> human rights violations are just horrible. elizabeth: let's watch basketball legend charles barkley. he is saying that politicians are basically dividing with race, race wars in order to raise money and to stay in power. listen to charles barkley. watch. >> man, i think most white people and black people are great people. i really believe that in my heart. but i think our system is set up for our politicians, whether they are republicans or democrats, are designed to make us not like each other so they can keep their grasp of money and power. they divide and conquer. elizabeth: he is saying not to like each other, to divide and conquer. your final word, congressman? >> well, this is exactly what the democrats are doing. this is what they're doing by spreading misinformation, by spreading lies. when we made voting easier and made cheating harder in the
6:34 pm
state of georgia, we expanded voting. if you voted legally in november of 2020, you can vote legally now but you're going to find a lot harder to cheat if you cheated. elizabeth: congressman buddy carter, thank you so much for being with us. >> thank you. >> coming up former federal prosecutor jim trusty on hunter biden's big 108. he doesn't remember if he owns the infamous laptop. then he admits it certainly could be his. where is facebook, twitter, apologizing after wrongly censoring the "new york post" hunter biden story? hunter biden appears to be admitting to it. the story next. >> he is just evading the truth. really, he doesn't remember whether he dropped off that laptop at a repair shop or not? that is a little bit hard to believe.

6:40 pm
sense absorb the "new york post" story what was on the laptop. now you have cnn's brian stelter saying the hunter biden book is a story of our time? i mean, i'm not sure what he is talking about because we're talking about a serious fbi probe and doj probe into potential tax evasion and money laundering involving hunter biden's laptop. he signed a receipt for it, hunter biden did. beau biden foundation sticker was on it. it had emails on it. has embarrassing photos on it showing lots ever bad things allegedly and raw influence peddling by the biden family. joe biden's campaign was saying this is russian disinformation inside of that laptop. so they're effectively saying it is yeah, his laptop. >> a couple of things there. i have mean the media at this point basically become the boy who cried putin when it comes to anything russia. if it's a negative story about trump it is russia doing it. he is colluding with russia.
6:41 pm
if it's a positive story they will spin it into the russian sphere as well. there is a lot to criticize about vladmir putin. he is a murderous tyrant and a dictator who kills political enemies but if the media will consistently trot out the russia card to obscure the facts like for this laptop, we're never going to believe it. that is where we sit. let me add one other quick thing, liz, drug addiction stories and recoveries, perhaps without all the privilege associated with the biden family are relatively sympathetic but again it is obscuring the real story of hunter biden's relationships when it comes to china and, uzbekistan, russian oligarchs. that is the story that a real media would be looking into, sorry, kazakhstan. elizabeth: making millions of dollars in business dealings and burying in shell companies. hunter can remember minor details, accidentally smoking parmesan cheese thinking it was crack, but can't remember

juveniles to just rush the southern border and have agents that are being moved from one position in order to take care of these individuals, it creates gaps in other areas. so that's what we have now, it's just a huge domino effect. the drugs are coming in because they understand that, you know, there's limited resources in some areas. now you have these, you know, the individuals that were on the terrorist watch list, and that's just what they caught, to be honest. elizabeth: right. >> i've been preaching up and down that my biggest concern is the amount of gotaways that are coming through our southern border. they continue to go up, the numbers are going up astronomically, i talked to some of the individuals looking at those numbers, and they're saying that the tucson sector is up to, you know, over 45,000 gotaways. so when you start looking at the individuals that have been apprehended and people on terrorist watch lists, it should raise huge red flags of what is coming across and was not being apprehended.

that should be a big concern -- elizabeth: we're seeing afghanistan, pakistan, iran, iraq, also homeowners, businesses and ranchers at the border suffer property damage. the texas attorney general, ken paxton, says it's something like billions of dollars in damages. they're breaking into homes, setting property on fire, robbing. let's watch the mayor of texas border town eagle pass. watch this. >> we have two stations, north and south station, and combine they're a catching about 300 illegal immigrants every day. they are being processed, vetted and, you know, what affects our community is that, you know, there's residential areas within a few hundred feet of the river. and so many of these individuals crossing illegally will tend to try the hide in residential neighborhoods and homes and backyards and patios. elizabeth: your reaction? >> you know, it's horrific. as someone that loss grown up

president, i know her well, i respect her, but she believes in open borders. making her the illegal immigration czar, as i said the other day, is like making "el chapo" the drug czar. elizabeth: what do you think, sir? >> liz, we shouldn't be in the position that we're in now. but with, you know, we're here. and we need individuals that are able to come up with answers and are able to fix the problem. we've said times how do you fix it? you put more immigration judges down here on the southern border, you put asylum officers down here, and you start looking at the actual cases, you start determining what is actually an asylum case and what is not, and you have real sanctions against these individuals. you can't have a free-for-all. you can't allow the criminals to continue committing crimes and there not be any consequences. it's a domino effect. the drug dealers and the child traffickers and sex traffickers are aware of it. elizabeth: all right. art, thank you so much.
