2:00 am
>> todd: we begin with a fox news ark letter, the state department ordering the families of embassy staff to evacuate ukraine as russian attack on its neighbor could be eminent. this is "fox and friends first." i'm todd piro. >> carley: good to see you. i'm carley shimkus. president biden may deploy more troops to eastern europe and the baltic states to support our nato ally. russia says it will respond appropriately if that happens.
2:01 am
live on the ground in kiev, steve, what is the latest? >> steve: the u.s. embassy in ukraine telling americans, it is time to leave ukraine. they ordered out family members of embassy personnel and authorizing nonessential personnel to leave and warned american citizens in ukraine, there will be no airlift of american citizens in event of a u.s. invasion. period biden considering deploying 3 to 5000 u.s. troops in eastern europe. nato will deploy ships and fighter jets as more ammunition continues to arrive in ukraine from the u.s. 80 tons arrived over the weekend according to officials. officials continue to insist there will be no preempative sanctions against russia. >> the purpose of the sanctions is to deter russian aggression
2:02 am
f. they are triggered now, you lose the deterrent effect. the alliance is looking at important measures to take in the event of further russian aggression. >> this is drawing criticism from lawmakers. >> i think president biden bears a lot of the blame. vladamir putin saw joe biden's debacle in afghanistan, vladamir putin thinks times is here and this matters to the american people. it is dangerous when you allow adversaries like russia and china and iran to upend the status quo and we have strongly-worded speeches. >> ukrainian officials estimate 120,000 russian troops masked along their border, back to you. >> carley: live in kiev, thank you.
2:03 am
robert charles, former secretary of state for george wbush. robert, good morning. start with what the president is mulling over right now, considering sending 3 to 5000 troops to eastern europe and russia saying it would respond appropriately if the u.s. deploys more troops to the region. should the president deploy the troops and what does russia mean in responding appropriately? >> let me start with basics, carley and good morning, you and todd. look, there are inflection points in history, we look and say we didn't realize that was such a big deal. september of 1938, the munich accords, were signed when guy named hitler thought he would
2:04 am
take czech, today we have a strong russian leader talking to a weak western leader saying he wants to take the russian speaks part of adjacent country, ukraine. we are past the time for deterrence. deterrence was months ago upon event and it didn't work. it was a debacle. we have given ark way the start agreement. everything putin is reading on his desk in the morning says this is a weak country, a weak leader, the west is not unified, the country is not unified? put troops in? yes, to deter lithuania, arktonia, poland. there is belarus, deter bad acts in eastern europe. with estimates up to 175,000 troops with commercial activity
2:05 am
on rail being diverted to troupe movement, i think russia will move and that creates a rapid domino effect, why this becomes inflection point. china looks and says wow, the world will be distracted by the words and puff that biden is putting out on ukraine. this is our chance to go after taiwan. it creates a dangerous scenario and i think senator cotton is right. dangerous moments call for a higher level of sobriety and clarity of thought and communication than we are getting out of the biden white house. >> todd: did biden set the stage for all this, for putin walking all over him when he got nothing in turn for the concession on the nord stream 2? it seems this other stuff followed that horrific negotiating posture by joe biden. >> i would say this is
2:06 am
breadcrumbs biden laid to ukraine's door step. giving away the extension and giving away nord stream 2 when that could have been a point of negotiation, instead of saying sure, make europe susceptible of your oil. the afghanistan pull-out was a disaster. we will run away and leave our own people, that is an absurdity, why would we do that? putin and xi and china are looking and saying this might be our opportunity to get everything we and want no consequences to speak of. to hear tony blinken, who i went to law school with, say stand down, massive consequences. sanctions? unless you are credible, you are not going to worry russia and everything they see in biden and harris spells weakness, not
2:07 am
consequences. if president reagan, bush or truman were saying this, people would say, you are right, we need to back away. we should put troops in other countries, right now ukraine is in trouble. >> carley: you think ukraine is in trouble and we should put troops in other countrys and think it is inevitable russia will invade ukraine. what should the appropriate response be, robert, if sanctions are not going to work? >> ukraine is a different country from poland, lithuania, latvia. should be around the clock meetings happening and should have been happening for weeks, saying what are contingencies and i know this sounds odd, sometime necessary sleight-of-hand, you have something going on here, it will happen here. look at contingencies we react
2:08 am
when china goes after the spratley islands, sockley islands or taiwan. we get hyped up about a lot of stuff and it is not helpful at all. this is a sober moment, every american needs to understand our credibility is at stake and we should have concrete set of consequences that we'll follow. >> todd: a disturbing and concerning assessment from you, robert charles, you know your stuff, scary times. we appreciate your time. turn to this, blistering new poll show americans are not happy with the current state of our country, opening the door for big republican gains this fall. >> carley: alexandria hofman is live. good morning. >> democrats have not been able to move the ball on issues. feels republicans are
2:09 am
benefiting. >> what bothers me, republicans are laughing to election day, they have not had to cast one bloody vote, which shows where they are at and we've got to change that. >> perhaps voters would rather the biden administration change its focus, listen to this. >> my life has not improved, covid has not improved. biden has not stuck to promises. >> inflation will hit 8 or 9% and we are going back to jimmy carter. >> i had high hopes for the administration when they came in, it's been one disaster after the other. >> according to fox news poll, 42% of registered voters think inflation will persist more than a year. "new york times" acknowledged what they see as early-term successes noting covid relief bill, continued with mr. biden contributed to his own political woes. the president and other
2:10 am
administration officials seem to be downplays dangers of inflation. insistent on this narrative may be contributing to fact he is not taking inflation seriously. as far as the president's push for voting legislation, senator tom cotton said this. >> he is simply trying to cover up for what i think is a disastrous election for his party because of his failed policies and rising inflation, rising crime and chaotic southern border. he's trying to find excuses for why they are about to be beaten badly at the polls in november. >> here is some startling words after this morning. an nbc news survey of top answers to describe america includes no positives. instead words like negative, downhill and lost, were used. carley, todd. >> carley: not good. thank you. america is waking up to deadly violence in our cities. democrat policies that let

>> our allies and partners across europe in intense way over the last weeks to make very clear that there would be massive consequences for renewed russian aggression. once triggered you lose the deterrent effect. we are putting together a whole series of actions that would figure into president putin's calculus. >> a fox news alert now. president biden considering deploying thousands of troops to eastern europe as nato announces it is sending additional ships and fighter jets to counter russian aggression against ukraine. >> congressman michael waltz is a house arms services committee member. national guard colonel and former green beret commander. good morning to you, congressman, it feels like the situation is quickly deteriorating, do you think a russian invasion of ukraine is inevitable at this point? and what does that mean for the united states? >> i think doo think it's imminent and very likely that putin is going to invade. and what does it mean for the united states?
2:56 am
it means destabilized europe. putin believes he can reconstitute the old soviet union and challenge the united states on the world stage and right now he has more to gain than he believes he has to lose by taking ukraine. he will have a huge increase in industrial capacity and agricultural capacity as ukraine is the bread basket of russia. and access to the black sea with ports and trade and oil and gas. and he believes that far outweighs anything that biden is going to do or the west is going to do in response because he got away with it in 2014. he thinks he is going to get away with it again. >> we just heard in a soundbite leading up to you from secretary of state antony blinken, quoted. >> once sanctions are triggered you losed deterrent effect. basically saying it's too soon for sanctions. does that make any sense to you. >> no, it doesn't.
2:57 am
frankly. i was out in ukraine a month ago. and talking to the ukrainians, you know, they very frankly said, look, taking tough actions after we have russian tanks sitting in our capital doesn't do us much good. we should have been doing things all along up front to challenge and change putin's calculus. sanctions now. more lethal aid now. and the types of lethal aid, the thing they most fear are surface-to-air missiles and antiship missiles. ukrainians have been asking for them tore months. we should have already provided them. also the president needs to make very clear that we will continue to resource not u.s. troops but military aid and supplies to an ongoing ukrainian resistance. look, putin thinks he can do this easily and quickly. we need to make it clear that we'll support the ukrainians in resisting and this will be a bloody endeavor for russian forces. that's the only way you are going to stop putin is if he
2:58 am
thinks this is going to cause him more harm than good. >> carley: let's talk about germany for a moment. germany is heavily dependent on russia for its energy. will they stay in the way of maximum sanctions against russia and also, what does that mean when you talk about u.s. energy independence? >> well, that's a great point. i want americans to understand that biden's failed energy policies are directly leading to snables and the world. when biden shuts down american pipelines, american drilling puts regulation on our fracking and moves us away from energy independence, is he moving the world towards russian oil and gas. and then you add on top of that green lighting the russian pipeline, which by the way, moves the dirtiest form of gas in the world. so the environmental argument doesn't even weigh in. every time that price of oil goes up, you see putin getting richer and getting more aggressive. and the same thing with iran. they're also getting richer and
2:59 am
more aggressive because america rather than exporting oil, biden is moving the world towards dependency on their oil. and this is how you are seeing it play out. and for sanctions to be effective, which is the centerpiece of biden and blinken's response. it has to be effective in euros and dollars. and the germans are not going to get on board as long as they are dependent and, look, they just had to fire the head of the german navy yesterday. for saying ukraine will never get crimea back. and that we should be showing putin more respect. so you are going to see a weak german response here. putin knows it. and, again, that's why he knows he can get away with it. >> todd: also former secretary of state mike pompeo basically saying, look, russia does not see joe biden as credible. all this figuring into the calculus putting on a path that we are currently on.
