It looks like the cross member is missing from your tub drain basket. You should be able to use an expanding tub drain removal wrench to remove it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NG00N5I/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=lexsdirmaisho-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B00NG00N5I&linkId=69e3615d55baeb3c6aa8cc23bf5c0ae3
There are videos on YouTube which demonstrate how to remove a tub drain with broken cross members.

I bought a special tool and it did not work. I was told I would have to go on the underside where the drain line attaches to the drain and unscrew if from there to free up the drain section inside the tub.
