Dominican Republic hits back at probes into US tourist deaths


>>Juan: FOX NEWS HAS CONFIRMED THAT A 11th PERSON HAS DIED IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. THIS COMES AS HEALTH OFFICIALS LASHED OUT AT RECENT REPORTS EXPOSING THE DEATH OF A DOZEN AMERICAN TOURISTS WHILE VISITING THEIR COUNTRY. OFFICIALS CALLING IT FAKE NEWS AND HYSTERIA AIMED AT HURTING THE COUNTRY’S TOURISM. THE FBI IS ANALYZING ALCOHOL SAMPLES FROM ONE HOTEL MINI BAR TO SEE IF TAINTED BOOZE IS TO BLAME FOR A STRING OF TOURIST DEATHS. SO GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS ARE USING THE #BEFAIRTODR TO COMBAT WHAT THEY CALL HYSTERIA. YOU CAN ARGUE HOWEVER ONE LIFE IS ONE LIFE TOO MANY. TOURISM MAKES UP 17% OF THEIR ECONOMY. IT’S NOT LIKE IT’S 99. HOW DO WE RESPOND TO THAT? GREG?>>Greg: I LIKE THAT. THE D.R. NEEDS A D.R. I DON’T THINK THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC WANTS — THEY SHOULDN’T BE THE MAYOR. YOU WANT TO BE ROY SNYDER. THE MEDIA CAN HELP BY SHINE AGO SPOTLIGHT BUT THEY CAN HURT. THE EARLY STAGES OF THIS, NOBODY KNOWS WHAT’S GOING ON. I SYMPATHIZE WITH THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC THAT IT’S NOT ALL HYSTERIA BUT THERE’S SOME HYSTERIA IN THIS FOG OF WAR. EVERYBODY IS REARRANGING THE WORDS TO DIFFERENT EQUATIONS WITHOUT GETTING AT THE TRUTH. I THINK “THE FIVE” SHOULD GO AND DO ON LOCATION SHOW AT THE D.R.>>Jesse: LIFT THE BOYCOTT.>>Greg: YES. JESSE HAS TO LIFT THE BOYCOTT.>>Jesse: IF IT’S ALL EXPENSES PAID, I’M IN.>>Juan: BUT DON’T DRINK FROM THE MINI BAR.>>Emily: I GOT AN EAR INFECTION.>>Dana: THAT’S IT.>>Greg: I SYMPATHIZE WITH THEM BECAUSE A LOT OF STUFF IS NOT TRUE. BUT THERE’S SOMETHING THERE THAT THEY HAVE TO SOLVE.>>Juan: IT’S THEIR POSSIBILITY.>>Greg: EXACTLY.>>Juan: I DON’T THINK THEY HAVE BEEN TRANSPARENT OR CLEAR WITH PEOPLE ABOUTING WHAT’S GOING ON. WE ALL AGREE — WE’VE SAID ON THIS SHOW, IT’S A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF VISITORS THAT GO TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. SO I DON’T THINK WE’VE BEEN UNFAIR. I’M NOT SPEAKING FOR JESSE. BUT I DO THINK TO ME LIKE FOR EXAMPLE, ON THIS DAVID ORTIZ SHOOTING THING, NOW THEY’RE SAYING IT’S NOT DAVID ORTIZ. IT’S A ANOTHER TARGET. ARE YOU COVERING SOMETHING UP? IT’S LIKE MALAYSIA, THE MISSING PLANE. THE ANSWER IS WITH THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DOMINICAN GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE TO USE, YOUR ANALOGY, MORE ROY SCHNEIDER AND NOT THE MAYOR.>>Greg: EXACTLY.>>Jesse: I FINDS IT DISTASTEFUL THAT THEY’RE USING THE PHRASE FAKE NEWS. WHERE DID THEY GET THAT FROM?>>Greg: I DON’T KNOW.>>Jesse: IRRESPONSIBLE. SO I BELIEVE THIS IS A CARIBBEAN INSIDE JOB, TOURISM TERRORISM. SABOTAGE SOME WOULD SAY. I LOOKED UP THE NUMBERS. THE D.R. BRINGS IN 6.81 MILLION INTERNATIONAL TOURISTS A YEAR. THE NUMBER 1 TOURIST DESTINATION IN THE CARIBBEAN. SECOND, CUBA. MAIN SUSPECTS. HEAR ME OUT. THE GUYS FROM THE AGENCY IN THE D.R. SAY THIS. A TOURISM ATAKATA. THE P.R., PUERTO RICO, WAS JUST HIT BY A STORM. THEY’RE LOSING OUT ON TOURISM DOLLARS. SUSPECT NUMBER 1. NUMBER 2, CUBA. OBAMA OPENED UP THE ISLAND. TRUMP CLOSED IT.>>Greg: THANK YOU, OBAMA.>>Jesse: THOSE ARE MY TWO MAIN SUSPECTS. KEEP THIS INVESTIGATION GOING.>>Greg: OBAMA? YOU LET OUT HAITI.>>Juan: ARE YOU SERIOUS?>>Jesse: JUAN, PEOPLE ARE DYING.>>Juan: YOU’RE SERIOUS.>>Emily: DANA IN THE LIBRARY, COLONEL MUSTARD CLEARLY.>>Dana: WITH THE MINI BOTTLE OF SCOTCH.>>Jesse: JUST WAIT TILL THIS PLAYS OUT.>>Dana: I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THE P.R. FIRM. I BET THEY’RE AMERICAN. THAT WOULD BE FINE. THIS IS AMERICAN JOBS. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. THE OTHER THING NOT ONLY IS THE GOVERNMENT — JUST TAKE A LITTLE SEMBLANCE OF WE’LL CHECK IT OUT. WE’LL CHECK IT OUT. INSTEAD, IT’S LIKE — AND YOU HAD THE ONE BILLIONAIRE FROM DOWN THERE SAYING IT’S ACTUALLY AMERICANS THAT CANNOT HANDLE ALCOHOL OR ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFETS.>>Emily: DON’T TEST US.>>Dana: THERE’S A RESPONSE BESIDES WE’LL CHECK INTO IT AND WE’RE SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.>>Greg: YOU’RE A LAWYER. WHAT DO THE FAMILIES GET? WHAT RIGHT DOS THEY HAVE? IF MY RELATIVE DIED THERE, WHAT CAN I DO?>>Emily: IT DEPENDS. THEY NEED THE INFORMATION –>>Dana: THE FBI IS GETTING IT.>>Emily: SO AFTER THAT, WE’LL FIND OUT.

  1. India's tainted alcohol was in Feb. 2019 and yet the news media write stories about this but never air the stories. Instead you air the story about Dom. Republic. People were arrested in India and yet you want the FBI to investigate Dom. Rep. NO, this is international and the UN needs to do it's job.

  2. I can hardly believe they are talking about 11 deaths. Shocking! Have some respect!

  3. Bill Clinton comes up to me in the Dominican Republic and say…."Say Hello to my Little Friend"… I look down and it's Joe Biden.

  4. BOYCOTT THEM LOWLIFE BEGGARS IT'S NOT WORTH THE RISK LET'S PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS OR SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN TO YOU WHEN YOU VISIT

  5. Well …xxxtentation was shot, nipsey hussle, tupac, notorious big, JFK, martin luther king, michael brown and john lenon. The US is unsafe

  6. Wow!!!!I don't remember when last time I've seen such pathetic TV show and presenters!!!!Were they exposed to any chemicals before entering TV studio?!?!?!shame on you

  7. Latest news report..
    Over 1,000 people reported falling ill while staying in the Dominican Republic on a popular food-safety site as reports of mysterious tourist deaths and rampant sickness plague the Caribbean island.. wtf is going on..Jimi Hendrix rocks…

  8. Family in D.R for the month of June, from the capital to the farmland and all are safe and unharm. This is an exaggeration to lower tourism, especially in the summer. Also many ppl go to the Dominican Republic bc there hiding from issues back home. Ppl also die visiting Cuba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, etc. This is ridiculous. The government called the FBI to facilitate the investigation and not hide anything, yet this has been dragging for a year now.

  9. Is needless to said how unfortunate it is for these families to have to mourn their love ones. My condolences to them all. However, a bunch of racist and selfish scumbacks whose aim is to hurt DR Tourism is what I see period. Sooner or later everything will come to light and those responsible will paid.

  10. 🇩🇴🇩🇴It is noted that all those who are here commenting have never visited the Dominican Republic, their education is received from the media that throw information into the air without any veracity or prior investigation🇩🇴🇩🇴. The United States has other interests with everything that happens and it is not the protection of its citizens, I am sure that the United States is more dangerous and insecure than the Dominican Republic. If this country were so insecure, it would not receive so many visitors from all over the world and neither would it. Tourism was the main economic activity here. 🇩🇴🇩🇴

  11. a lot of people die in your country and no one talk about that, but people die in a small island and you try to damage their reputation

  12. ^^^Meanwhile 💙🇮🇱💙Israel calling📞… to the USA❤🇺🇲❤= 😡Stop the fake news about our friend ❤DR🇩🇴❤. Fox business left the chat🗯 just disabled the comments section we wonder why lol 🤣😂😅

  13. This really sounds like pesticide poisoning. I feel so sorry for these poor victims and their families. I hope you get the answers to your many questions.

  14. Sure, this happens in other countries all the time. The number of deaths is to great, especially since they are US citizens. Come to paradise and die.

  15. Waters was the only one who got this one right…and the rest are laughing at the deaths of Americans? I usually like Greg, but "no I don't want to hear" statement just was boiling my blood. Juan low IQ Williams has nothing constructive to say, so I ignore him anyway.

  16. i've been to the DR and I AM ALL FOR 100% HAVING THE FIVE GO TO THE DR ….. THAT WOULD BE GREAT!!!

  17. Some one is harming them … People think Americans are rich and they get robbed.. But that is not always the case… I am not going there.. Maybe someone found out something the public are not suppose to know ..

  18. 11 deaths? over the 6.2 million tourists annually? and all americans?
    And the 200 deaths in Hawaii? Why not talk about that?
    There IS a reason why dominicans think this is all hysteria.
    Dominican Republic is a small poor country been bully by the most powerful country in the world. Nothing they'd say will matters if people just trust everything US feeds them.
    Please do some actually reseach before throwing a whole country to the mud.

  19. Yeah, why is your panel laughing throughout this sensitive segment? So unprofessional and insensitive. Find a new and respectable panel please

  20. THEY DON'T RESPECT AMERICANS OR THEIR OWN PEOPLE TRAVEL BAN ON DOMINICAN REPUBLIC NEEDS TO BE IMPOSED BY ALL COUNTRIES AND SANCTIONS AGAINST THE WHOLE NEST OF THEM FOOLS

  21. Small percentage?? What about how many people have gotten seriously ill after going there? It's ridiculous

  22. The state department should issue a warning for Americans to avoid the Dominican, this country is unsafe and the deaths are no accidents. More Americans are going to die because these hotels don’t care about safety. Staying in one of these resorts is like playing a game of Russian roulette.

  23. 24hr American News Drama!
    A tourist dies in Hawaii on average once per week!
    Mardi Gras 2018? 629 in one week!
    Fourth of July? 8 in one day just from Fireworks! Thousands more from DUI, IN ONE DAY!
    In DR:
    11 deaths, 2 were a car crash.
    NONE of them were young people.
    Meaning that none of the 20-40yr olds who party in excess have died.
    This is not the US, and yes DR officials should be more helpful and transparent, but this is PRIME AMERICAN NEWS HYSTERIA that Americans eat up!
    I fly to DR Friday, I’ll be soaking up the sun while you soak up 24hr News! Enjoy!
    I’ll be horseback riding on the beach and having a fresh margarita while you sit on your couch ingesting 24hr news hysteria! ENJOY!

  24. What do you mean they have not been transparent? Somebody dies from an heart attack ……autopsy …confirmed…..American reaction. I don't believe it! Give me a break.

  25. Tourists death's in the Dominican republic, Do not seem to be taken seriously, Is there an International police burro in the Haig in the Netherlands that can be called on to investigate this matter ?.

  26. THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC IS VISITED BY MILLIONS OF TOURISTS OF THE WHOLE WORLD, THE EUROPEAN MAJORITIES, IF ALL THESE FALSE STORIES ARE SET … CAMPAIGN PAID AGAINST THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC IS MANUFACTURED BY NEW YORK STATE TELEVISION CHANNELS, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC RECEIVED SEVEN MILLIONS (7,000,000), TOURISTS IN 2018, THIRD IN TOURIST VISITS IN LATIN AMERICA. THIS HAS AFFECTED ALL THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS, ESPECIALLY TO PUERTO RICO, WHICH IS IN RUINS AND HAS NOTHING TO SHOW ABOVE IS A TERRITORY OF THE UNITED STATES ………. LEAVE YOUR DIRTY

  27. Something about this whole thing sounds strange to me Like there's some sinister agenda behind the attention the U.S. media is giving this story

  28. guy one life is way many but stop taking about Dominican Republic ,you guys sounds like CNN,
    for your info, since 2015 963 tourist from United States died in mexico 125 died in costa rica , 78 in
    In Dominican Republic , you guys didn't mention another country , stop the FAKE NEWS .

  29. Americans have to be stupid as hell to go to the DR right now. Obviously someone is targeting Americans.

  30. What David Ortiz case have to do with this? Ortiz case its isolate. But its a campaign against them. On the cruises there the samething plp throws up, and a whole bunch of bacteria, that the have to return back to the States. Look at Thailand so far 33 americans so far, baby. Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Indonesia. Ect. Those countries have breaking records.

  31. My theory on all these deaths… If it's not from there mini bars in the rooms check for pesticide sprays… Some people are saying when they get back to there rooms there smelling chemicals or there food is tasting strange.. what happens when u keep giving a rat poison? There system becomes immune to the poison!! It might not effect that staff working in those rooms but since the guest never inhaled such a thing maybe that's what's hurting and killing people…

  32. Campaign to hurt the country. There are reports of haitians poisoning drinks and fruits to harm the country's image. Remember the haitians hate Dominicans. Fox too is the only network promoting this bad campaign.

  33. More tourist died this past year at the Grand Canyon.a small child died from ecoli at the San Diego zoo from touching the animals. The child put her fingers in her mouth

  34. The Dominican Republic partnered with China in tourism and transportation.

    And well… my country has been bashed on fake news ever since that partnership.

    Look it up online guys! DR and China partnership. 😉

  35. Ya dennos banda coño, es algo que pasa en muchos países, en Estados Unidos mueren más y nadie habla sobre eso, de hecho es sorprendente que de 6 millones de turistas solo mueran 10, me tienen harta.

  36. Me tienen harta coño. El que quiera disfrutar del paraíso, que venga. El que no, vaya a vacacionar a Denver. SE LO PIERDEN COÑO😄

  37. Fox News has targeted DR , talking about the deaths in DR every single day HOW COME they haven’t said anything about the deaths in COSTA RICA I wonder why ? .what happened in DR is happening and others country I don’t see FOX news making an effort like they did with The Dominican Republic .

  38. After the Texas and Ohio shootings I wonder if tourists from other countries will be forbidden to visit the United States like they forbidded toursits from visiting the Dominican Republic.
