NEIL CAVUTO, FBN HOST: So that's great. That will be next week and next hour is Trish Regan. Hey, Trish.

TRISH REGAN, FBN HOST: Oh, Neil, that is such great news.

CAVUTO: That's right.

REGAN: I'm so happy to hear that. We've all missed him a lot. It will be a wonderful week having him back ...


REGAN: ... on September 6th. Yes, the countdown begins, all right. Thanks so much.

Breaking today, everyone, we're just 70 days left until the general election. Donald Trump is showing momentum in the polls. I'm Trish Regan welcome, everyone, to the Intelligence Report.

A brand-new poll released moments ago shows Hillary Clinton ahead of Trump by only seven points now, 46 to 39. You know the same poll had Clinton up by 12 points earlier this month. As Trump works to narrow the gap as he court the minority vote, will he be able to turn these poll numbers in his favor? We're on it.

Plus, the 10,000 Syrian refugees will resettle in America today. Do you know that we brought in more Syrian refugee this summer alone than in the first eight months of the entire program combined? Have we gotten that much better at vetting, or the administration cutting corners to reach its target goal? Retired Four Star General Jack Keane is here, he's going to weigh in on that.

And it's the scandal that just do not go away. New e-mail show how the Clinton Foundation ask the State Department for all kinds of favors even a former senior adviser to President Obama admits, there are legitimate questions about this foundation that need to be addressed, we're on that.

But first, back to our top story, Donald Trump working to court minorities and he's making a major policy speech of immigration this Wednesday, the Republican nominee making the announcement on Twitter after receiving backlash for suggesting that he was softening his stance on the deportation of illegal immigrants. But Trump supporters insist that his message has been consistent, no sanctuary cities, no amnesty and, yes, he's going to build the wall. Trump adviser and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani weighing in on "Fox and Friends" earlier today. Watch.


RUDY GIULIANI, FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: First of all, he's going to increase significantly the number of border patrol, increase the number of immigration agents for a specific purpose. Stop them at the border and arrest the people that here illegally.

Now, since there are 11 million, 12 million, 13 million, 14 million, 15 million, we don't know, I don't know how many illegal are here. He's going to start in the right way. He's going to go after the most dangerous criminals first and then the less dangerous criminals second. And by the time we get there, then we'll see what our population is of non-criminal illegal immigrants.


REGAN: And then, I guess, we got to deal with that then. Joining me right now, Republican Strategist and "GOP GPS" Author Evan Siegfried along with Trump's National Spokesperson Katrina Pierson.

Katrina, I'm going to start with you. You know, look, how does he still maintain this perception of being really tough on immigration while also stressing the need to get out the bad guys but yet not necessarily going after the good guys, at least not first?

KATRINA PIERSON, TRUMP'S NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON: Well, you can't do it all in one day, and I think that's what we're getting here. You know, the policy position has not changed from Mr. Trump. He's going to strengthen the border. He's going to build the wall. It's extremely important to stop human and drug trafficking into this country and he's going to enforce the law.

We have eyes. Those are the individuals who are supposed to be deporting criminal aliens as we speak. The other two things I think are really important is to end sanctuary cities and implement e-verify system so then we can make sure that Americans are getting jobs.

So we have to make those the priorities and then after that, there won't be 11 million illegal aliens in this country and Mr. Trump wants to come up with a humane way so that these other individuals can go back to their home countries and get in line.

REGAN: OK. So that's interesting. You say a humane way. I mean, I think this is somewhat important for him because he's got to get that independent voter right now. I think he got his base no matter what. And, you know, he said, "It almost doesn't matter what I do. My base is there for me." And I think they'll be with him on this one.

But if he makes that play for the voter that isn't sure which way he or she is going to vote right now, there is a certain danger if you're perceived as being too tough on this issue, in other words, not understanding the challenges that a family maybe faces, et cetera.

Evan, it's a very precarious position to be in. He actually coming forward, I'd say, with more policy than Hillary Clinton has on this front, but how does he balance this now?

EVAN SIEGFRIED, REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST, "GOP GPS" AUTHOR: Well, you know, I'm still trying kind of recovering from losing a few I.Q. points from the previous answer. But Donald Trump, has taken every position on immigration. He's going out.

REGAN: No. I mean, Katrina, she answered that fairly, which is that, he wants to go after the bad guys first and then he got to figure out ...

SIEGFRIED: He said he was going to deport all 11 million.

REGAN: ... what he going to do with everyone ...

SIEGFRIED: By Donald, the primary Donald Trump, basically said what his immigration today or his immigration policy is today, is amnesty. What would primary Donald Trump say about general election Donald Trump? He'd say he's giving amnesty. He's weak. He doesn't care about the issue. And that he's basically Jeb Bush.

Now, it's Donald Trump going out and betraying his base. His base is learning that fidelity is not Trump's strong suit. It's a big problem.

REGAN: Well, you know, Katrina, is that fair? I mean, again, it's new ones issue ...

PIERSON: Donald Trump has always said from the beginning there is no amnesty and there is no citizenship period. And the deportation of illegally aliens has not changed.

SIEGFRIED: He said last week he's for cut backs.

PIERSON: ... but Mr. Trump is saying what he has been saying, which is what he has been saying because they have to leave the country ...

SIEGFRIED No, Katrina, he said everything about immigration. It shifts based upon what audience he's talking to.

PIERSON: They have to leave the country, and they have to get in line.

REGAN: All right. Well, this is why it's going to be so interesting ...

PIERSON: No. This is something to see on Wednesday what he said ...

REGAN: ... unilaterally. He wants to work with Congress. He wants to work with Congress.

SIEGFRIED: Oh, I thought, I alone can fix it.

REGAN: He alone can fix a lot of these problems just by simply enforcing the current laws on the books, which we don't currently see. What we also know is you have a choice in this election. You can have someone who is serious about securing the border about implementing ...

SIEGFRIED: Oh, that's been acknowledge?

REGAN: ... policy that will actually help American families, or you can support Hillary Clinton, who wants open borders. She's going to give amnesty the hundred days, who supports giving benefits to illegal aliens and all of the above ...

SIEGFRIED: If Donald Trump were serious about immigration ...

REGAN: ... Donald Trump is not that candidate.

SIEGFRIED: ... why has he not spoken about the over 40 percent of illegal immigrants who come in legally and just overstay visas. They can fly into JFK and then just not leave. Nobody does any enforcement.

PIERSON: I can send you to donaldtrump.com, and you can look at his policy position, and he has an entire paper on the problem we have with visas.

SIEGFRIED: His policy positions are -- Katrina, you're doing a disservice to the American voter.

REGAN: Look, we'll find out on Wednesday exactly what his policy is.

I would point out that you want to talk about flip-flopping and going back and forth, Evan, you have only to look to Hillary Clinton to see that kind of inconsistency. Anyway, so good to have you both here. Thank you very much.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump working overtime trying to win over voters in key states ten weeks before Election Day, his campaign announcing a $10 million plus ad buy in nine of those swing states starting today. Here's one example.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: In Hillary Clinton's America, the middle class gets crushed. Spending goes up. Taxes go up. Hundreds of thousands of jobs disappear. It's more of the same but worse.

In Donald Trump's America, working families get tax relief, millions of new jobs created, wages go up, small businesses thrive, the American dream achievable, change that makes America great again.


REGAN: All right. He's out, going to help me catch up here, joining me right now, former Bush Adviser Brad Blakeman.

Brad, I've got to ask you. I mean, how much the ads really affect things nowadays? I mean, eight years ago, sure. But I think people are smart enough, they (inaudible) all things. The skip around a bit, and obviously I'm not talking my own book here, because we benefit from all those ads. But will they be a game changer for him?

BRAD BLAKEMAN, FORMER BUSH ADVISER: Look, ads are very important, but they compliment in overall strategy. The most successful candidates are the ones that control the calendar, and we only have a few days left. There's a finite date, obviously Election Day, a candidate that controls a message, and most importantly the candidate who has the organization.

REGAN: Well, he's controlling the message when she say, right now, a lot more than we've previously seen in that Hillary Clinton is playing defense on her foundation?


REGAN: Yeah.

BLAKEMAN: Yeah. I think he's done a great job, but here's the problem. A national ad buy a $10 million in nine states is a spit in the ocean. It really doesn't mean much, but it does get you is earn media, but it doesn't get you anywhere near the earn media that you need. And, plus earn media, you can't control. It's reporting. It's free media.

The best advertising is the one that is targeted in battleground states and has to a certain degree, a saturation point to get the message out in a finite period of time.

I'll tell you the ad is fantastic. The ad buy is weak.

REGAN: OK. So why is the ad fantastic in your view?

BLAKEMAN: I think because it's such a great tone of comparison between what the economy would look like under Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. It's not an ad that is anti-anybody. What it is, it's for something.

And you can't always be against something. You have to stand for something, this stands for something, it stands for a better economy with Donald Trump.

REGAN: Much bigger, more spending, more dollars.

BLAKEMAN: Exactly, and more targeted.

REGAN: Well, how much bigger? I mean, give us some sense of where this leads in your view.

BLAKEMAN: I would say, yeah, $100 million ad buy, you're talking something that will rock the socks off the Hillary Clinton campaign. Because $100 million ad buy in ten battleground states is an effective ad buy in volume and in the amount of eyes that you're going to see to the attention of this ad.

Right now, I believe there's going to be more attention given in earned media than the actual ad itself.

REGAN: All right, well, we'll be watching. We'll see whether or not he can do that. $100 million Brad says. That's what he needs. Thank you so much, Brad Blakeman.

BLAKEMAN: Thank you.

REGAN: The 10,000 Syrian refugees going to be arriving in America today, and the speed at which we've been accepting Syrians, I have to tell you, this has just increased dramatically. I mean, we're bringing about 11 refugees a day originally and now we're at 80 a day? Why the sudden surge? I mean, have we really gotten that much better at vetting? Or is the administration cutting some corners in order to meet its target?

Plus, chaos at a major U.S. airport after loud noises send travelers running for their lives, luckily it was a false alarm. But one has to wonder, is this the new normal that we now live with? And is our administration doing enough to make Americans feel safe? Retired Four-Star General Jack Keane is here. He joins me next.


REGAN: The 10,000 Syrian refugees arriving in America today. That's more than a month ahead of President Obama's target date.

You know, in the first six months of the program, we brought in about 2,800 refugees or about 11 refugees per day. But in the last three months, what do you know? Over 7,000 refugees have entered our country, almost 80 per day.

The Department of Homeland Security says that the vetting process that the refugees are going through has actually improved. But, you know, with this huge increase, you have to wonder if a few, perhaps, dangerous people may have slipped through the cracks.

Joining me right now, retired Four-Star General and Fox News Military Analyst General Jack Keane. General, welcome back, good to have you here in person, all right.

We got 10,000 refugees from Syria right now. We want to be a humane country. We want to help people in need. But, there's a certainly reality that exists right now in that, ISIS has promised to see this refugee population with jihadists. Are you worried about that?

GEN. JACK KEANE, FOX NEWS MILITARY ANALYST: Oh, yeah, certainly. Let's take ISIS at their word because one of the things they do do, is they deliver on a promise. And that's been painful for us to accept.

So, yes, anything coming out of the target area, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, we clearly have to pay a lot of attention to it. I never believe that we should shut it down entirely but we got to pay close attention to it. And, most of the people who are these Syrian refugees, these 10,000 are the most vulnerable in that Syrian society where there's human catastrophes been playing out before our eyes for five years. So they're families largely, Trish.

REGAN: Largely families, but we've seen, you know, ISIS has used children, may have used women, and let me play some sound for you from the administration itself, basically saying that this would be extremely challenging to vet these people. Here we go.


JEH JOHNSON, HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY: We're not going to know a whole lot about the individual refugees that come forward from the U.N. High Commission on Refugees for resettlement and vetting.

JAMES COMEY, FBI DIRECTOR: My concern there is that there are certain gaps. They don't want to talk about publicly in that -- in the data available to us.

JAMES CLAPPER, DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE: I don't, obviously, put it past the likes of ISIL to infiltrate operatives among these refugees.


REGAN: OK. So in all fairness, that was roughly a year ago. But, you know, from Johnson to Comey to Clapper, you've got basically all of them saying it's going to be very challenging to vet these people. So how did we do it?

KEANE: Well, we'll find out. First of all, we haven't had any ISIS terrorist come out of this group so far. In fact, as a matter of fact, we haven't had -- we take in about 70,000 refugees a year for years in this country. And we haven't had any radicals come out of that who committed terrorist acts. All of that said, we still have to be very cautious about what we're doing here. And I think ...

REGAN: So you would not advocate more?

KEANE: I would not. I think the numbers are about where they should be. And I believe now that we've completed this process. Let's have the Congress hold hearings on it, bringing the officials back in who did the vetting. Let's make -- let's see what our process is really like. Let the American people make some judgments about it.

REGAN: Do you think that's been a problem at all, General? I mean, we as Americans really haven't been given that insight into the vetting? Instead, we hear from the likes of Comey and Johnson that it's going to be very challenging to do.

KEANE: Well, I think in the interest of being transparent, we should put it out there and let people know what are the challenges, what is the problem. And certainly if we're bringing in males of military age here by themselves, that should be rejected wholesale. I mean, we can't be that stupid.

REGAN: A red flag. But Europe was. Europe was.

KEANE: Listen, Europe is totally different. There's millions of refugees en route to Europe from many different countries. They have open borders. There's no vetting process whatsoever. And that is why we already know that radicals have returned in that refugee population in Europe. And that is a huge problem. We don't have that problem here, but that doesn't mean that we have to be cautious about what we're doing here.

REGAN: General, you know, there was another false alarm at a major airport, U.S. airport. Of course, travelers thought that they actually heard gunshots out in L.A. last night, and they started running for their lives. This is the video that we got in sent into us.

You know, we keep hearing of these attacks all over the world now. Is this just the new normal? Americans are in a state of fear, I think. And, you know, you hear something that sounds like a gunshot, and you're going to run. You're going to fear that it's terror.

KEANE: Yeah. And that's quite well taken, Trish. I mean, what I take out of this is that, there is a heightened awareness among Americans who are traveling, probably even in that sense going to a shopping mall.

And in this case, we've been telling Americans, "If you see something, say something." So in this case that's exactly what happened. They saw something, they said something. It turned out to be a false and a negative, and that's a good thing certainly.

But I think the other thing that we should just step back and realize is that, while Americans may have a heightened awareness about terrorism, they also intuitively know that despite the travel they're going to do around the world and the various vacation spots and going to malls on a regular basis and going in and out of airports and train stations, the likelihood and the probability put of their being attacked is pretty slim, so they just go about their lives.

REGAN: I don't know. It's definitely a different world and it's sad that we even have to think about these things. But thank you, General. Yes, people should live their lives, but, of course, be vigilant. Good to have you here.

KEANE: Good to be in here.

REGAN: Remember when President Obama promised there would be more options and more competition thanks to Obamacare, so much for that. According to a new study, there is about to be a monopoly on health care with nearly 70 percent of Americans being left with fewer Obamacare options next year. We've got the details and what it means for you and your plan next.


REGAN: New data shows more than 30 percent of the nation's counties are only going to have one insurance option when shopping for healthcare plans on the Obamacare exchanges next year.

This is a major cause for concern after some of the largest insurance companies in the United States said, they're pulling out of the program because, guess what, Obamacare is just too darn expensive to turn a profit.

Our very own Jeff Flock is standing by with more on this story. Jeff, sticker shock in some cases and I imagine others the inability to actually get anything.

JEFF FLOCK, FOX BUSINESS NETWORK: Well, Yeah. You know, I mean on the bright side, I suppose, you could say that there are more people now insured than ever before in the U.S., but on the negative side looking forward, at least according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, options are shrinking.

Take a look at the raw numbers on this. You mention the counties. Take a look at the raw numbers. This year, about 2 percent, about 300,000 people only had one option. Well, looking forward to next year, it's 2.5 million people that will have one option. That's about 19 percent of all Obamacare enrollees. And if you look at that national map, we broke it down for you a bit.

There are some states, five, as a matter of fact, where there is only one option. So there's no competition there at all. In some other states the majority of the state has no competition as well. As you point out big insurers like, you know, the healthcare Humana and Aetna pulling out of many of the exchanges and "Wall Street" kind of likes actually, the reduced exposure because people sicker than they thought, a lot of people didn't signed up that they thought they would.

I think you are to date to -- I forget what the number is, but looks pretty good for united healthcare for year to date there. There's the numbers.

REGAN: All right. Thanks so much, Jeff.

Meanwhile, as more Americans prepare for Obamacare sticker shock and it's coming. The pharmaceutical company Mylan is reeling from more charges of crony capitalism. In response, Mylan is promising they'll make a generic version of its EpiPen drug.

The EpiPen made by Mylan, it is vital to saving the life of any person with a food allergy, my 4-year-old son for example, allergic, deathly allergic to nuts. You have to travel with this EpiPen as a parent. And if you're, you know, someone who is older who have one these food allergies, again, you've got to travel with this thing. It's extremely important.

But here's the rub according to reports, Mylan spent $4 million lobbying Congress so that its products, the EpiPen, would be required by all public schools in the United States and once Mylan got the deal with the schools, what do you know? The price of the thing goes up. Now, $600 today, used to be 57.

Mylan, we should also point out as a major donor to the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton, she never said boo about the company's apparent price gouging until the public fury reached the level we have now seen on this thing.

So here is the question, how do we get all of this crony capitalism out of the pharmaceutical industry? Joining me right now, Cato Institute Senior Fellow, Michael Tanner. Michael, good to see you again.


REGAN: What's the answer? I mean, how do you prevent this kind of lobbying effect from really causing some price gouging for these drugs?

TANNER: Well, this sort of thing couldn't exist in an actual free market. For example, there are actually two competitors right now that are trying to bring EpiPens to the market, and they're mired in a red tape of the Food and Drug Administration which hasn't approved their product yet. That guarantees a virtual monopoly for the current company.

There are three different EpiPen makers in Europe. In addition to Mylan, so basically we're being blocked out of any sort of competition, any sort of free market response in this country by the bureaucracy.

REGAN: So this is sort of big government at work? I mean do you blame the Obama administration for this?

TANNER: Well, this is something that's going on for a long time under multiple administrations. The fact is that the FDA is very slow to bring products to market. And therefore it keeps the competition. It's a barrier to entry.

REGAN: Why is that so? I mean, is it in our interest for them to really vet this stuff? Or, you know, as you point out, look, in Europe, you know, they have multiple competitors to this, which makes it that a whole lot harder to charge $600 if your competitor's charging $50.

TANNERL: Well, to some extent, it's what's seen and what's not seen. If somebody gets sick and dies because of a bad product that gets seen, you guys play it up in the media, it's going to be a big scandal. Nobody wants that, so the FDA is very cautious. But nobody sees the price gouging that goes or the people that died because a new drug is not brought to market. That sort of hidden away in the background, and we don't complain about that.

REGAN: Well, now people are starting to a little bit more. But you mention this FDA, I mean, I think about sunscreens, for example, you know, UVA and UVB is very important to have both kinds of protection. But for years, you could only buy one kind of protection in the United States because the FDA would only approve one.

If you wanted to guard against all kinds of sun damage, you had to buy that stuff over in Europe.

TANNER: Well, that's right. I know people who actually smuggled sunscreen back into this country in order to get the better protection than what was available. The fact is that we're very slow, and it's very expensive.

People talk about the high cost of drugs in this country. One of the reasons is it's a very lengthy and expensive process that companies have to go through to get approval, and they can go through for years and then be turned down and that's just a sunk cause that they have had to bear.

RAGEN: Well, you know, the less bureaucracy I think we'd all agree the better. Michael Tanner, good to see you, thank you so much.

TANNER: Thank you.

REGAN: All right, more troubles for the Clinton Foundation. New e-mails show that donors received special access to State Department affairs, we're talking invitations to state lunches, access to Mrs. Clinton herself and yet, Hillary Clinton insist this is not a pay-to-play operation.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is weighing in on Huma Abedin's decision to leave her husband Anthony Weiner which she announced just a couple of hours ago, amid another one of his sexting scandals. We got the details on this one next.


REGAN: All right, breaking right now, we have just gotten word that two U.S. representatives are demanding answers from Mylan, following the company's decision to hike the price of the EpiPen. We were just talking about this story.

Well, Jason Chaffetz and Elijah Cummings now want documents on what led to these hikes. We were just reporting of course that they had spent $4 million according to reports lobbying so that they could actually make it official that all U.S. public schools had to carry these EpiPens in stock. And then shortly thereafter, what do you know, the price went up, up, up, up.

We're going to bring in more details as soon as we get them. You see the stock is actually still slightly higher right now. But again, this company has been leaning from these accusations, effectively of crony capitalism. And that they spent the money lobbying and then what do you know, got the deal, and then started gouging the schools, more evidence today.

Meanwhile, that suggests Hillary Clinton crossed some serious ethical ties while secretary of state. New e-mails show Clinton aids inviting people who gave money to the Clinton Foundation to state department lunches and offering them special seating at White House events. Clinton supporters are struggling to answer the looming questions that they've been getting. Watch it.
