12:00 pm
he died at the age of 96. >> also from ducktails. >> thanks for coming down. >> have a great rest of the weekend. ♪ and we begin this hour with new information about the final moments of egyptair flight 804. there is evidence that smoke sensors went off in the ill-fated flight disappeared from radar. still at this hour, far more questions and answers. search teams are now finding debris from that crash, including airplane seat, life jackets and personal items from passengers. crews from several nations, including the u.s. are now in the mediterranean sea just north of egypt where the jet disappeared with 66 people on board. so much depends on finding the jet's black boxes which will
12:01 pm
contain vital information and news about whether terrorists are to blame for the air disaster. joining us now senior foreign affairs correspondent can greg palko live at charles de gaulle airport in paris. greg. >> reporter: yeah, we have been getting new information information about the harrowing last minutes of egyptair flight 804 as the air and sea search continues in the mediterranean where the plane went down. there are new clues emerging as to why the plane crashed. officials confirming ma we first confirmed late yesterday that smoke was detected on the plane. and that smoke probably came from a fire just before the blaney went down. this from data sent to the ground from the aircraft. analysts are now saying that the fire could have started in the cockpit, and the smoke spraying to the forward bathroom. and then underneath. to the important electronics bay. knocking out the control lead to get crash.
12:02 pm
so the question now is, what triggered the crash? what triggered the fire that sent the flames scattered across the mediterranean sea may be on the seafloor. was it terror or mechanical failure? experts say if it was terror, it was probably not a huge bomb. it took a couple of also they say, it probably wasn't a hijacking or suicide. there were real mechanical problems on the plane. what triggered the problems. for their part, the airline, the egyptian government, the french government, continuing their line that all options are being looked at. the investigation is being looked at by the airline. but transparency is huge here and the egyptian government has not always been transparent in
12:03 pm
their probe. finally back here at charles de gaulle airport where the plane guest from wednesday night. officials are take nothing chances. terror or no terror. we have learned starting monday, passengers getting on planes here will be screened in a much more serious way. they'll be subject to a much more rigorous background check. something that washington has been pushing for european airlines to do for a while now. to try to avoid yet another catastrophe. back to you uma. >> indeed, greg. thank you for that life update from paris. joining us now with search to clues following this disaster, ambassador jim woolsey, former director of the cia. welcome. great to have you today. based on what you are hearing right now, what is triggering evidence in your mind, at this point, as to what may have happened? >> well, i don't think we're going to have a very good idea
12:04 pm
until we get those black boxes that your report talked about. but it seems very strange to have a fire in the cockpit that goes back through the bathroom. and then into some electronics. it has to do with the design of the plane, i suppose. but i don't really recall hearing about a cockpit fire, anytime that i can remember. i'm not quite sure what catches fire in the cockpit. it's worth asking the question because that seems to be somewhere some of this new information looks like it might be headed. >> and the fact that there were no distress calls prior to the crash still gives many people reason to believe that terrorists could be tied to this air disaster. >> yes. i -- it just -- if these weren't sound reasonable aircraft of which there are thousands flying and very reliably, it would be one thing. but is this a very, very solid
12:05 pm
solid aircraft that was being maintained well and so forth. that seems very strange to have that kind of spontaneous fire breaking in the cockpit of an aircraft like that. >> does it surprise you at this point if it is terror related that we have not heard any group claiming responsibility? >> yes, i understand how they often wait for two or three days. but it's coming to the time now which is sort of surprising that they hadn't said anything if it is. i thought at the beginning 80/20 whether it was terrorism. i don't know that that's the case. but i don't have any reason to back off the terrorist assessment now. i'm mainly concerned about air travel all over the world, especially in the united states. and how we are going to deal with the fact that we're getting more and more foreign workers in as a result of cost shaving by some big companies that supply
12:06 pm
maintenance workers and janitorial workers. and that could produce a situation where we have a large number of people that it's very difficult to vet. it's hard to vet people from that part of the world. the french have done the best they can and let some 80 go. at least kept them. >> and that happened after the concerns over what happened at the airport there. they did let other people go. but in this situation, too, we also do know that this particular jet made some stops prior to landing in paris. and that's where the big question remains. because the vetting process is not consistent. and there's a lot of that can happen between different crews who are involved with baggage and with janitorial services, i point out, and other maintenance of aircraft. >> well, if there's prior planning and it's relatively
12:07 pm
sophisticated that the eritreaen service people put something in the aircraft because they've been told to by the folks in egypt, you know, that could make it very important where they stopped. but they only stopped usually for an hour or two. and so -- in some of these airports like paris now, de gulle, it's very hard to get up close to the plane. it might be somewhat easier, i don't know, if the aircraft were there parked overnight. janitorial service doing their business and one person was doing something in addition to. >> right now, in this country, though, do you believe that the systems that we have in place for vetting in terms of dealing with folks with security clearances is getting better? >> well, on the security clearances, except for the 20
12:08 pm
million some clearance data that the chinese stole, it's getting bett better, a bit, i suppose. the real problem, if you're talking about maintenance workers and janitorial workers is if the cheaper labor has been hired by these big corporations that manage the janitorial service for dozens of airfields, then you've got a situation where the janitorial service people may not be very thoroughly vetted, if they come from the mideast. say, from syria. a passport that's pretty credible costs about $100 in syria. so, that's a problem. it's not that they have inadequate -- technically inadequate vetting process. they often don't have one of
12:09 pm
much at all. >> it's a big concern. i know you're watching all of the developments very closely as we continue to wait for more information to come to us. particularly, the search for those black boxes which will hopefully give us more information. >> those are key. >> those are key indeed, sir. great to have you on board today. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. turning now to presidential politics, the 2016 race turning into a battle over american safety, just after the nra endorsing donald trump. he's not accusing hillary clinton of wanting to release vialent criminals from prison and disarm violent citizens. and he's also warning that women in particular would be at greater risk if mrs. clinton is electsed. >> hillary wants to disarm vulnerable americans in high-crime neighborhoods. whether it's a young single mom in florida or a grandmother in ohio, hillary wants them to be defenseless. and if you take that gun away
12:10 pm
from them, it's going to be very unfair situation. and that's why we're going to call her heartless hillary. >> okay. the war of words is in full play right now with peter doocy standing by live in washington with more on this. peter. >> and uma, donald trump says conservatives are starting to to rally around his campaign and he's given credit to the 11 names he would like to see on the supreme court if he becomes president. trump says the effect that list has had in promoting unity has been incredible. and now he's calling on hillary clinton to release a list of her own to show voter what is he predicts would be a night and day difference between their judicial ideology. mr. trump is hammering hillary clinton on her position on guns tweeting early this morning, the quote, crooked hillary wants to get rid of all guns and yet
12:11 pm
she's surrounded by bodyguards who are fully armed. no more guns to protect hillary. yesterday shortly after the national rifle association endorsed mr. trump delivered remarks tailored to the room of nra members warning about what he thinks would happen to the second amendment if hillary clinton becomes president. >> hillary's pledge to issue new anti-gun executive orders, now that. this is the behavior -- i mean, you could say of a dictator. this is the behavior, frankly, i think that doesn't know what she's doing. she's not equipped to be president in so many different ways. but this is the thinking of a person that is not equipped. to be the president of the united states. believe me. >> and a big part of trump's appeal to people that you see to the rally said the operation is mostly self-funded. and we just found out so far he has loaned more than $43 million of his own to his campaign.
12:12 pm
uma. >> $43 million. wow. thank you, peter, very much. well even though the election is still months away, the presumptive nominee on both sides of the aisle, political aisle, already, making it clear you can see they're gearing up for what is expected to be a nasty fight between donald trump and hillary clinton. mrs. clinton continues to say that mr. trump is not qualified to be president. and trump is firing back, you just heard him saying that she suffers from bad judgment and not qualified either. former gop member ben carson now with trump on the campaign he tells me he believes trump will defy those who doubts he has what it makes to be dmaerncomman chief. >> what trump has to do is recognize when he actually has the opportunity to sit down with people and talk with them, they frequently come away with a very different impression than what they've gotten over the last 20 or 30 years watching him on television. watching him in the debates. >> do you have any concerns
12:13 pm
about the tone at times that he takes when he expresses his concerns about isis and about allowing refugees into this country, muslim refugees? >> well, recognize that the tone that he takes is a tone that seems to be resonating very strongly with the people. right now, the people are not in the mood for kind, soft ice cream and cookies. you know, they're ready for some tough talk. but not only tough talk, but tough action. because i believe that a lot of our enemies are depending on us doing things like not being willing to even mention that they are radical islamic terrorists. >> this has been a very interesting week in that we're seeing mrs. clinton hitting donald trump pretty hard on a number of fronts. and actually going back to an accusation that she shwa had wad
12:14 pm
some sometime that he's a recruiter for isis in his statements for terrorism. how do you react to that? >> well, i think here's a woman who has played the role of ostrich, sticking her head in the sand, and not recognizing that it was the policies of clinton/obama which created isis in the first place. by withdrawing our forces prematurely from iraq. here is an individual who has jeopardized the security of our nation by putting top secret material on a private server where it could be accessed by enemies of our nation. that shows no about the whatsoever to be commander in chief. and, you know, i can't even imagine why she doesn't recognize that. >> switching gears now, i know that you are deeply involved in the process of helping mr. trump
12:15 pm
select a vice presidential nominee. and that this is a team that is looking very carefully at a number of people. at this moment, i know that there are names floating around. are you someone that could possibly be on that list as well, another poll showed that many people believe that you would be the best person to stand along mr. trump. how does that fare with you? do you find that to be flattering, and also something that you're interested in? >> well, it's flattering to know that there's so many people who think that that's the case. i actually believe that i could play a much more useful role in this country as a citizen statesman who continues to talk about what the issues are. regardless of who is elected president. and, you know, the people must be aware of what the important
12:16 pm
issues are in this country and what's going to affect their children and their grandchildren. and, you know, i believe that if i grow into a government position, i'm not quite as free to talk about all of those things. >> i know that there are a number of names that are being talked about right now. are you ready to come forward with some of those names and make that public at this point in terms of giving us some idea of who's being considered? >> i think i'll leave that up to completely to donald trump. the names have been submitted. you know, he's considering everybody on that list very, very carefully. >> i'd like to talk for a moment, if you could, a more personal side, about the deep bond you that and mr. trump have at this point. former rivals now working together very closely. there is obviously a deep level of trust between the two of you. you can expand on that a little bit more and talk more about the
12:17 pm
relationship between you two that you have fostered over the last few months? >> well, you know, he's just a very decent person. you know, i discovered that the very first time i met him. and, you know, you realize, during the debate, when we had a situation where i couldn't hear my name being called, he was the only one who kind of stood with me. everybody else just whizzed on by. and subsequently, agency we've talked, and i find that we're aligned in many, many areas -- >> this bond formed fairly quickly, though, after you dropped out. the fact is that you both really came together very quickly behind the scenes. >> and i think you'll find actually a lot of other people who will bond with him some they give him a chance. when they really sit down and talk with him and understand where his heart is. >> what has surprised you the most about him in these months that you've worked with him? what you come away with?
12:18 pm
>> i think the thing that impressed me the most is when you talk to the people who work for him -- and i'm not talking about the major executives. i'm talking about the people who serve the food. who drive the cars. they love him. and he treats them so well. he knows people's names. and that tells me a lot about a person. >> and i thank you, dr. carson for his insights on donald trump. coming up, the latest on tense anxious moments outside of the white house as a secret service agent springs into action when an armed man ignores at calls to drop the weapon. new details on the suspect and the motive. plus, talk about being way, way off course. why this hot air balloon veered in the wrong direction and how the folks inside managed to get to safety. >> we just started -- as soon as one came off.
12:19 pm
we'd just fly back up again. i've just arrived in atlanta and i can't wait to start telling people how switching to geico could save them hundreds of dollars on car insurance. but first, my luggage. ahh, there it is. uh, excuse me, sir? i think you've got the wrong bag. sorry, they all look alike, you know? no worries. well, car's here, i can't save people money
12:20 pm
chatting at the baggage claim all day. geico®. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. this is lloyd. to prove to you that the better choice for him is aleve. he's agreed to give it up. ok, but i have 30 acres to cover by sundown. we'll be with him all day as he goes back to taking tylenol. yeah, i was ok, but after lunch my knee started hurting again so... more pills. yep... another pill stop. can i get my aleve back yet? for my pain... i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. the e-class has 11 intelligent it recognizes pedestrianss. and alerts you. warns you about incoming cross-traffic. cameras and radar detect dangers you don't. and it can even stop by itself. so in this crash test, one thing's missing: a crash.

with the all-powerful drivewise app. it's good to be in, good hands. welcome back, everybody. time for a quick check of the headlines making news right now. president obama traveling to asia for a week-long trip that begins in vietnam and also includes an historic and controversial stop in a city of hiroshima in japan. the course that ever changed history after the u.s. dropped the first drama in world ward i. vice president joe biden delivering the commencement address at the academy for the cadets about the important work that lies ahead of them. >> whether it's training our partners, reassuring, providing humanitarian relief, we call you. and right now, the stakes could
12:31 pm
not be higher. >> and also sad news about a tragedy at the world's highest mountain. a dutchman dying while on his back down from mt. everest summit. the 35-year-old victim reportedly suffering from high altitude sickness. well, back to our top story, the crash of egyptair flight 804 raising new questions about airport security here at home and across the globe. egyptian officials are suggesting that terrorism is more likely the cause than mechanical cause at this moment as searchers continue to pull wreckage from the mediterranean waters. security was heighted across the u.s. and in brussels, but here in the u.s., under criticism for the massive delays. one nation that might learn a
12:32 pm
great deal israel. here to explain former head of the security for israel's airline who now runs his own airline consulting business. welcome. good to have you. >> thank you. >> you know, it's always very interesting to talk about the differences in security across the globe. and israel is known for its precise and very methodical approach to dealing with security at airports because, of course, israel has had to think about its own security on a daily basis. given what you have heard about this particular story up to this point, what went through your mind, as you think about some of the causes that could have contributed to this disaster? a lot of folks believe that terrorism could be responsible for what happened. do you agree with that? >> no. >> tell me why. >> because what we have, terrorists want to blow up an aircraft, they don't put it that
12:33 pm
would hold an aircraft on air for even seconds. you take the example of the russian aircraft, 254 passengers, blown up as a result of explosives placed over there. and in seconds, the aircraft was not anymore in the air. >> right. >> here, because it comes to pieces. and we cannot go in the air. the same here, if this was explosives, should be strong enough that he would not be seen like what we saw on tv how he's -- >> well, it could be a weak bomb. it may not have been a bomb that was, you know, as strong as others might have expected. >> let's take the reality. the terrorists want to explode aircraft to kill innocent people. this is their own target. they don't play games and do it
12:34 pm
with two, if they can do it in a half, they will do it. let's face reality. this was not, number two, it was at night. at night, if it was explosive, fire would be seen by the satellite. nothing was seen. so, this is not explosive. this is a technical problem, i think. and we have to check to investigate the security people. and the technical people. how they, you know, until people start coming to clean the aircraft. do we trust them? do we check that no one has something that has -- does not belong to the intent to use. >> in israel, the vetting process, though, is quite intense, is it not, for all personnel who have security clearance there? >> correct. >> and do you feel like in this country and others we are still vulnerable because our practices are not as rigid?
12:35 pm
>> i'm ashamed to tell you, here we don't have security. >> in what way? >> any way you want. i'll prove to you that we don't have security. how is it possible that only last year, the office of inspector general from security decided to test the tsa. and he sent 17 guys, some of them hiding explosives, some of them in hiding weapons. >> and they made it through? >> 70 -- 67 went through. and we can say we have security? >> i know, that story generated a lot of headlines. given the fact that folks right now are gearing up for the summer travel season and that there's a lot of emphasis about the concerns about the way the tsa runs our security check points and nation's airports. what do you think it's going to take to really send the message that we are serious about security here in the united states? >> first of all, not serious.
12:36 pm
maybe serious by talking but not acting. look what happened september 11th. group of terrorists came to study flying aircraft. and knew it. >> understood. >> okay. >> since then, the vulnerability, many people worked hard to try to close the gap. where do you think at this moment we are still vulnerable? >> we don't have qualified people. the training is not a training. the test is not a test. and somebody failed, we keep him. instead of showing others go home. thank you very much. you do not belong anymore to us. we spend $5 billion a year only for the tsa, for what? where's your security? how is it possible that security people can get caught smuggling
12:37 pm
weapons into the aircraft with the uniform? how is it possible that uniformed security people can steal -- >> it's a very troubling situation indeed. i know, there are a lot of concerns and many people in this country are demanding better security and reforms. we shall see what lies ahead. >> i spoke so many times about this. and it's about time. not to change the faa after the september 11 with the tsa, but the difference between them and nothing, except one. billions of dollars extra we spent. and we don't see any kind of security. it's impossible to 96% of tests that they do it, and they out zero. zero is out. shame on us. >> we'll continue to work on it, sir. hopefully, people like you will continue to make a difference and get them to make a difference. >> i leave here, i fly, too.
12:38 pm
i don't want to be killed for stude stupid things if we can prevent it. >> absolutely, well said. thank you. bernie sanders is not giving up in his battle to clinch the democratic nomination. mr. sanders now holding a rally in the town of voto the near mexican border. meantime, hillary clinton is set to deliver a keynote address at the trayvon martin foundation. steve harris joins us in ft. lauderdale with more. >> reporter: hillary clinten is fighting on two fronts one side defending herself against sanders. at the same time, trying to go on the offense against donald trn this taped message to christian hispanic leaders in california. >> you know, we're hearing some divisive and dangerous rhetoric in this election.
12:39 pm
we have a candidate that wants to tear families apart and forcibly deport 11 undocumented immigrants who calls mexicans rapists, talks about banning muslims from entering the country. that is not who we are. >> reporter: clinton is here to speak at the trayvon martin foundation tonight. she'll be the headliner. martin, of course, the 17-year-old unarmed african-american who was shot and killed in central florida in 2012 by a volunteer watchman, a community watchman, george zimmerman who was later found not guilty of second degree murder charges. clinton will likely be doing fund raising here in florida. of course, is this a key state where most polls have trump and clinton neck and neck. in the primary in march, clinton did manage to win 81% of the african-american vote. efforts like this will try to boost that vote in the general

that will carry throughout their life. and on the day this happened i was actually off duty. and when it started, the second i was off duty didn't matter to me. the switch just flipped. and i went and did what i had to do along with the two officers from santa monica pd. >> give us more information about that particular moment and what was running through your mind as you there trying to save lives on that school campus. >> it was very surreal to start out with. nobody expects to see and hear the things we were seeing and hearing. the gunshots that were going on. and as we were moving initially, i was with two of my partners, and i was in plain clothes, and one of the things that you worry about as an officer in that situation is the fact that nobody knows, a third party, nobody knows that you're an officer, and you might become a
12:49 pm
victim of friendly fire. and the other thing is at that point in time, facing a man with a rifle, even on a norm aal par of every day might not be enough to stop those rounds and i did not have body armour on. >> deputy, i know your wife and your son were actually nearby when this gunman were running loose. and the fact that this gunman had killed his own parents. >> well, my wife, my daughter and my son were at the school. my son being about 50 feet away. actually both parents sustained a gunshot wound directly to the head. because of the quick action from the department that entered the house, they're actually alive today. >> sam, do you think your dad's a hero? >> yes. >> what does it mean to you knowing that your father really makes a difference every day and
12:50 pm
that he protects so many people and saves lives? >> i'm very proud of him. >> of course you are, and we're very proud of him as well, captain bottenfield, means to you personally about being an officer to the public, what would you say to all of us? what do you want us to know? >> officers are real people. we have families. we have friends. we bleed. we cry. we do everything a normal person does but we also have a duty and responsibility to do our job each and every day. most of the people in law enforcement are in law enforcement because they had a calling to be there, and no matter what, they're going to continue doing their job. even when people don't necessarily like law enforcement as we're seeing quite a bit now, the true men and women of law enforcement are going to go out there and do their job every day no matter what.
12:51 pm
>> absolutely. you're heroes to all of us. i know you're all very humble. we thank you for your service and we're so very proud of you and we honor you today. thank you your joining us. >> thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. >> and we'll be right back. for as long as i can. new patented ensure enlive has hmb plus 20 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle. for the strength and energy to do what you love. new ensure enlive. always be you. try cool mint zantac. hey, need fast heartburn relief? it releases a cooling sensation in your mouth and throat. zantac works in as little as 30 minutes. nexium can take 24 hours. try cool mint zantac. no pill relieves heartburn faster. if you then you'll know howuth, uncomfortable it can be. but did you know that the lack of saliva can also lead to tooth decay and bad breath? well, there is biotene, specially formulated with moisturizers and lubricants...

i'm billy, and i quit smoking with chantix. i had a lot of doubts going in. i was a smoker. hands down, it was, that's who i was. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke.
1:00 pm
decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. hello, i'm laura ingle in for julie. welcome to "america's election hq." >> topping the news this hour, crews recovering debris in the search for egyptair flight 804. this as investigators make a disturbing discovery of what may have happened before mat plane crashed. donald trump, a big endorsement from the national rifle association and making some claims about hillary clinton on the issue of gun rights. and an eye over a new study on exercising. its potential to lower the risk of a deadly disease.
1:01 pm
investigators now saying smoke was found in multiple places on egyptair flight 804. just minutes before the plane crashed into the mediterranean sea. experts trying to figure out whether the smoke on board was caused by an electrical fault like a short circuit, or whether some kind of explosive device started a fire. all 66 people on board were killed and search teams are now finding more debris from that crash. joining us with more, senior foreign affairs correspondent who is live in charles de gaulle airport in paris. greg, what more does this new information tell us about the fate of flight 804? >> interesting stuff, laura. we don't have that black box recorder yet which, of course, will be crucial. we do have new interesting hints. new interesting clues about what must have been a harrowing last few minutes of egyptair flight
1:02 pm
804. again, as the debris is recovered, so are some of these clues emerging. french officials today are now confirming what we first told our viewers late yesterday. according to data received from the plane, smoke was detected on board probably from a fire, they say, just before the crash. analysts are now saying whatever happened probably started in the cockpit. and then spread to the forward bathroom right next to it and then spread to the crucial electronics bay underneath the cockpit that controls the plane. all this happened about four minutes. all, as we all know, to deadly effect. at the air and sea search continues, yes, the question remains, was it an aircraft fault? or was it terror? again, according to analysts, as you referred to, this catastrophic event might have had a very simple beginning. if it was aircraft, bad wiring and a cockpit window defroster
1:03 pm
was suggested, or if it was terror, it might have -- the fire might have been ignited by something as small, as simple as a smoke bomb. or flare. again, these black boxes should say everything, hopefully, maybe we'll hear the pilots talking to each other, probably screaming at each other during these terrible, terrible last minutes, laura. >> and greg, you know, if this was terror, what new precautions with being taken? what more do we know about that? >> yeah, french officials like those in egypt are still keeping to a very even line saying it's not necessarily terror. they're keeping all their options open, but they seem to be taking no chances. we are here at charles de gaulle airport, terminal 1. this is where the egyptair flight 804 left from wednesday night. well, starting on monday, according to reports here, security will be ratcheting up seriously. there will be serious background checks for passengers leaving this airport. checking to see if there are new
1:04 pm
security risks on board these flights. this is something that washington has wanted europe airports to do for a long time. and now they're doing it. as for the families of the 66 victims, of course, they continue to grieve. many of them are either in cairo, egypt, or have gone there to be somehow closer to their loved ones. some were here in france gathering at an event, but that's small consolation. back to you, laura. >> all right. greg live for us in paris. greg, thanks so much. the 2016 race now turning into a battle over american safety. donald trump accusing hillary clinton of wanting to let violent criminals out of prison. and disarming law-abiding citizens. trump making those remarks after scoring the endorsement of the national rifle association. let's turn now to peter doocy live in washington. peter, before we get into that, what are we learning about how much trump has spent so far on
1:05 pm
his campaign? >> that he's spending a lot, greg, $44 million loaned already to his campaign and makes up a huge chunk of the $47 million the campaign spent so far. trump talks about being impossible for special interests to control since he says he doesn't need any donations from lobbyists but there have been some small donations, make up less than $2 million of the campaign total. greg? >> plus, these are loans so if he expects them to be repaid they'd likely be repaid by someone else which mean he's not actually self-funding as he claims. look, trump continues his criticism of hillary clinton on guns. tell us about that. >> yeah, he's really turning up the heat on hillary tweeting first thing this morning a suggestion that her tough talk about guns is hypocritical. here's the quote from trump today. "crooked hillary wants to get rid of all guns and yet she's surrounded by bodyguards who are fully armed. no more guns to protect
1:06 pm
hillary!" this all started yesterday as trump was accepting that endorsement from the national rifle association. and trump told the crowd he thinks her policies would put them in harm's way. >> trying to overturn the 2nd amendment, hillary clinton is telling everyone, and every woman living in a dangerous community that she doesn't have the right to defend herself. so you have a woman living in a community, a rough community, bad community, sorry, you can't defend yourself. that is so unfair and that is so egregious. >> trump also urged hillary clinton to do what he did and release a list of people she would nominate for the supreme court. so voters could see how each of them would fill the court and he tried out a new nickname for his likely democratic opponent, calling her yesterday heartless hillary. greg? >> heartless hillary. crooked hillary. there have been several others. one a week i suppose. all right. peter doocy, peter, thanks. later on in this hour our
1:07 pm
political panel weighs in on this latest trump strategy regarding guns. how it could impact the 2016 election and just who is telling the truth and who is not. we'll look at it. and greg, we have a new polling on a crucial voting bloc, the latest fox news latino poll of registered latino voters shows hillary clinton with a huge lead over donald trump in the battle for their next vote. brian isbrian. >> a brand new fox news poll, shows if the election were held today hillary clinton would win the hispanic vote by a 39-point margin. 23% say they'd vote for donald trump, lower than mitt romney in 2012 when the then-republican nominee won 27% of the hispanic vote. the prevailing thought is republicans need to get closer to the 40% range if they want to win the white house. that's about what george w. bush won. now, some are surprised that trump's support is that high given comments on immigration and mexican-americans and one
1:08 pm
reason why he may be garnering close to a quarter of the latino vote, 41% of hispanics have an unfavorable view of hillary clinton. in fact, president barack obama is viewed much more favorably than her. interestingly, latino voters overwhelmingly say a hispanic vice presidential nominee would make no difference in deciding who they vote for. 86 % said it wouldn't change their opinion of trump if he chose a hispanic v.p. 80% say the same of clinton. the fox news latino poll also shows the number one issue for latino voters remained the economy and jobs. latinos were the hardest hit group of the great recession. importantly, though, the number of latinos who say immigration is the most important issue has doubled since 2012 from 6% to 12%. immigration may be fourth on the list of most important issues but nearly a third of hispanic voters say if they agree with most of the candidates' positions, a differing stance on immigration is a deal breaker. trump says he's going to deport
1:09 pm
undocumented immigrants. the 90% of hispanics are against deportati deportation. a tense situation outside the white house ending with a secret service officer shooting a man. that man coming up to a checkpoint yesterday afternoon ignoring orders to drop his gun. the white house then went under a security alert after the secret service agent shot and wounded the suspect. sources say he may have intended what's known as suicide by cop. >> the white house was temporarily locked down friday afternoon when a secret service agent shot an armed man outside the white house when he refused to put down his weapon. around 3:00 p.m. when secret service agents noticed a suspicious looking man and started following him. the suspect walked up to a
1:10 pm
perimeter checkpoint while holding a gun in plain sight. the agents yelled to put the gun down. he didn't. an ajebts forced to shoot him. >> when we were standing there, the officer comes out of the side door, not the front door, the side door. the side door is when you could hear his radio going, shot fired, shot fired, suspect down, suspect down. >> the secret service put out a statement after the shooting saying they, "recovered a firearm at the scene. an agent provided medical aid to the subject. the subject has been transported to a local area hospital for medical treatment." the secret service has been under a lot of scrutiny from lawmakers over recent security breaches such as the white house fence jumper in 2014 when the man jumped the fence and made his way into the white house before being tackled by an off-duty agent. since then agency added an additional barrier in front of the white house. just last month announced plans to raise the fence from six feet
1:11 pm
to 11 feet by 2018. the d.c. police department secret service, u.s. park police and the fbi are all continuing to investigate this incident, but they say at this point, there are no indications that it was related to terrorism. greg? >> garrett, thanks. and jury selection now under way in the murder-for-hire trial of drew peterson, former chicago suburban police officer already behind bars for killing his third wife. you might remember, his fourth wife still missing. he's now accused of trying to find the hit man that he allegedly hired to kill the prosecutor who put him there. will carr joins us live from our west coast bureau with the details on this one. >> peterson is serving four decades behind bars. if he's convicted after this trial, he could face an additional 60 years in prison. you may remember he came into the national spotlight back in 2007 when his fourth wife, stacy peterson, disappeared.
1:12 pm
now, that case was never solved and he was never charged in connection with that disappearance, but during the courses of the investigation, authorities took a second look at the death of his third wife, kathleen savio's death was initially ruled an accident. her body, though, was exhumed. the cause of death was changed to homicide. peterson was charged, convicted and sentenced to 38 years in prison. now the prosecutor in that case was james gloscow. peterson tried to hire a hit man while in prison to kill him. they have recorded conversations to back the accusation up. opening statements start on monday. stacy peterson's sister said last year she hopes the family may timely get some much-needed answers. >> maybe tell where stacy is, game over, you know? so just tell the truth, where's stacy? >> stacy peterson was last seen in 2007.
1:13 pm
during the course of their investigation, authorities say that the pastor, the family's pastor later told them that stacy peterson told the pastor that drew peterson confessed to killing kathleen savio and stacy peterson was scared for her life. so her family still looking for answers almost a decade later and one thing for sure, no matter what happens in this trial, drew peterson will stay behind bars for quite a long time. laura? >> what a case. all right. will carr, thanks so much. search teams now finding debris from egyptair flight 840 804 including airplane seats, life jackets, personal items from passengers. we're going to have the latest on the search effort and what we're learning from those items. plus, can you guess how long it takes to move this fuel tank just five miles? here's a clue. over ten hours. >> that's slow moving. a big blimp making a terrifying emergency landing in
1:14 pm
philadelphia. what we're hearing about the people who were onboard. >> over here. by the time it ended up, he got drove across the road, over the barrier, inside of his little basket. ♪ ♪ (charge music) you wouldn't hire an organist without hearing them first. charge! so why would you invest without checking brokercheck? check your broker with brokercheck. 80% but up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day women's 50+ complete multivitamin. with vitamin d and calcium to help support bone health. one a day.

time for a quick check of the medliheadlines. new video showing uber driver jason dalton getting forcibly escorted out of a michigan courtroom, it happened after he interrupted witness testimony with sporadic outbursts. earlier this year, remember dalton admitted to his involvement in a shooting spree that killed six people and injured two others. plus this -- >> and a blimp making an emergency landing in philadelphia after getting blown into an industrial area and ending up wrapped around a utility pole. two people were on board. unfortunate and fortunately they were not injured. the faa and ntsb investigating what happened. out west the space shuttle's external fuel tank is on its way to the california science center. the giant orange tank will move five miles per hour along the
1:19 pm
route to the science center. it's supposed to take between 13 and 18 hours. >> how do you move it? very slowly. hillary clinton will release violent criminals from jail. more so than even obama. she has a more open policy than obama if that's possible. and put innocent americans at risk. i'm going to put criminals behind bars and guarantee that law-abiding americans have the right to self-defense. 100%. >> donald trump slamming hillary clinton on gun rights. that was last night. igniting a furious debate that hits close to home for many americans concerned about their safety. as we told you earlier, trump getting the endorsement of the nra. let's bring in radio talk show host, fox news contributor. corey elans, a former communications adviser to president obama and a partner at vox global. good to see you both. let me start with you, tammy,
1:20 pm
because it's not just what he said last night but what he says almost every campaign event he says, repeated, hillary clinton wants to abolish the 2 nd amendment. politifact looked into that, they investigated and they gave donald trump a false on that claim. "we found no evidence of clinton ever saying verbatim or suggesting explicitly she wants to abolish the 2nd amendment and the bulk of clinton's comments suggest the opposite. she's repeatedly said she wants to protect the right to bear arms." so tammy, is trump actually guilty of a blatant smear? >> no. not at all. quite the opposite as a matter of fact. you'll notice in that politifact statement they used the words "verbatim" and "explicitly." that's key with hillary clinton, she's vague when she speaks about things. when she's caught in private comments, not public events, it's clear what her position is. she said the supreme court decided wrongly about heller, the first scotus position, only
1:21 pm
one at this point who said americans have the right as individuals to own firearms so self-defense. she said that was decided wrongly. >> right. >> she's been very vocal about -- her daughter even reinforced this as well in her public speeches actually. hillary, depending the audience she is speaking to changing her approach and this is why people don't trust her because she's vague enough, she talks around it and that's her main issue. >> corey, what about it, because hillary clinton was caught on tape secretly at a fund-raiser in which she said the supreme court is wrong on the 2nd amendment, referring to the heller decision which gives an individual right to bear arms. so in truth, isn't that evidence that hillary clinton does, albeit secretly, oppose the 2nd amendment? >> absolutely not. look, hillary clinton and the american people are very much in alignment on this issue of common sense gun control in this country. >> that's not what she said.
1:22 pm
she said supreme court got it wrong. >> here's what she has said consistently, here's what the american people have said. they both believe that we should have laws in place that allow people solely to protect themselves, certainly to carry weapons, but we should have universal background checks and american people believe we should have stricter control over who has access to weapons in this country. the fact that we're going to something she said at a fund-raiser, i mean, whatever. >> people don't think they're being tape recorded, they often tell their audiences the truth. the truth they don't want the general public to know about. speaking of which, tammy, cuts both ways. what bothers a lot of people about donald trump is that they feel he switches positions, not just on, you know, minimum wage and taxing the rich, but on guns. for example, in his book he said "i support the ban on assault
1:23 pm
weapons, i support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun." well now, tammy, now that he's trolling for votes, he's changed his mind on all of that which prompted one nra supporter to say, you know what, i don't know what donald trump's core values really are. >> well, the majority of the nra obviously, this is first time they've endorsed a candidate this early on in season. they feel very strongly. they feel that they know what his stand is. they've spoken to him. and for myself, as somebody who's moved from left to the right -- >> right. >> -- i know that people can, in fact, change their positions after learning about the issues and i think for many of us who are kconservatives, we hope mr. trump experiences more changes and moves toward -- in this particular case, i don't think the decision, the choice would be more clear. hillary said about a supreme court decision that affirms right to bear arms, she dis agrees with it. mr. trump has the correct position and clearly feels -- >> corey, last year hillary clinton said we should consider doing what australia has done,
1:24 pm
that is to say banning automatic weapons, semiautomatic weapons and a mandatory, no a voluntary, but a mandatory buyback of prohibited guns. does that give us an insight into what a president clinton wants to really do? >> no, i think it gives us an insight into how she is thoughtfully considering how this issue on gun control should be managed, but i want to quickly tgo back to this point about donald trump and his acceptances of this endorsement. this is a pivotal moment in this campaign. donald trump very quickly and with utter ease transitioned from anti-establishment to establishment and from a self-funder to sellout. with the acceptance of this endorsement from the nra. here's why. it's because he needs to raise money for himself and he needs to raise money for folks down ballot this election cycle. the nra is also sending a signal, look, we need to line up
1:25 pm
behind donald trump, he's our guy. that is real -- that's a real moment -- >> talked about hillary making $100 million per speeches for wall street and -- >> you're leaving out the cattle futures but that's a whole other story. >> oh, my. oh, my. ancient history. >> tammy and corey, thank you very much. >> thanks, guy. >> thank you. there's been a tragic start to the preakness stakes in baltimore. what caused the death of two horses at the race course today. and investigators searching for clues about what caused egyptair flight 804 to suddenly plunge into the mediterranean. what they're learning about the minutes before that plane went down. >> with respect to staff, i think we need to increase the staff size of tsa to meet all the demands of the growing travel population as well as the potential changes we might see as we learn more and more about what might have happened to egyptair.

just now getting word from the pentagon that a u.s. air strike has likely killed a very important top taliban leader by the name of mullah mansur. an air strike that targeted him in a remote area. see the geographic region. it was somewhere along the afghan/pakistan border. mansur had been a leader of the taliban active will i involve l lot of attacks in facilities in kabul. he'd taken over for mulla hxh o after his death. the air strike likely killed mullah mansur, top taliban leader. the pentagon can't say for sure. they're still assessing it. democrats stepping up their
1:31 pm
campaign now. bernie sanders and hillary clinton both appearing at events in two key states. as the candidates continue to battle for the democratic nomination. steve harrigan live in ft. lauderdale, florida. steve, hillary clinton still has to fight on multiple fronts, correct? >> reporter: exactly right. she is fighting bernie sanders and at the same time she's fighting donald trump. she's on the defensive against a sanders and trying to take the fight to donald trump, fighting over the same voters, particularly ahead of the california primary, they're fighting for the hispanic vote. recently hillary clinton taped an address to california hispanic leaders against trump. here's what she had to say. >> you know, we're hearing some divisive and dangerous rhetoric in this election. we have a candidate who wants to tear families apart and forcibly deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. he calls mexicans rapists, who
1:32 pm
talks about banning muslims from entering the country. that is not what we are. >> reporter: hillary clinton will be here in ft. lauderdale today a address a foundation run by trayvon martin's mother. trayvon martin was gunned down by george zimmerman. an unarmed 17-year-old african-american killed in 2012. aides tell fox news she'll also address the recent nra endorsement of donald trump and increasing gun violence in the u.s., greg. >> steve, how critical is the african-american vote for democrats in florida? >> reporter: certainly florida a key swing state with 29 electoral votes and a few numbers really stand out. african-americans make up 13% of the electorate in florida. president obama was able to carry 95% of that vote in 2012. now hillary clinton has done very well, but not quite that well. she got 81% of the african-american vote in the primary here in march.
1:33 pm
so trying to keep those margins and keep black turnout high could be critical to see who wins florida. greg? >> steve live in ft. lauderdale, steve, thank you. investigators finding evidence of a possible fire onboard egyptair flight 804 saying smoke was found in some places on the plane before that plane disappeared from radar. the egyptian military posting some of the first photos of debris found at the crash site. experts trying to determine whether terrorismhanical failure caused the plane to swerve and spin before plunging thousands of feet into the mediterranean sea. we're joined from washington, d.c., retired u.s. navy captain and now a fox news military analyst. thank you so much for being with us here, captain. >> my pleasure. >> as we wait to find out what cause ed these reported fires, think we all want to believe their ample and working fire extinguishing systems onboard all planes.
1:34 pm
what can you tell us about that? >> well, all aircraft are mandated to have fire extinguishing systems in the cargo compartments and electrical compartments and depending on the number of passengers the aircraft can carry, hand held fire extinguishers as well. there are different types of fires that can occur in the aircraft, a class "a" which is paper, that kind of thing, clothing. class "b," now you're talking about things like gasoline or fuel from the aircraft. class "c" which is an electrical fire. class "d" which is metals. we've heard a lot about lithium batteries. a metal fire is really devastating. the systems involved in those aircraft, the cargo compartments or elsewhere are derivative systems which is a gas that displaces the air so in other words if you remove the oxygen from the fire, the fire goes out. and that's how those systems
1:35 pm
work. the only problem is if it is a metal fire and you put helon on it, it can actually make it worse like using water on a grease fire. >> all right. and you know, when we look at the blueprint of the airbus a320 and where the fire reportedly started in the avionics bay, right in the nose, in the front, could somebody have gotten do that area before the plane took off? a lot of people now, captain, are looking at the stops this aircraft made before taking off from paris and the people that could have been involved in touching it. >> yes, it's possible, laura, because, you know, the aircraft went to -- was in tunisia that day. then tacame back to cairo befor it went to paris and turned around and was on its ill-fated flight on the paris to cairo leg. it's possible somebody could have put something in there, but trying to figure out the timing to get that right to make it go off over the mediterranean, if that was the intent, that would have been very difficult.
