tv   Special Report With Bret Baier  FOX News  June 24, 2016 3:00pm-4:01pm PDT

3:00 pm
>> we have to leave it there. thank you to everyone who joined us, thank you, guys. . the break-up felt round the world this is "special report." good evening, welcome to washington, i'm chris wallace in for bret baier. britain had a choice to live within the european union or leave it. they chose the latter. the fallout from thursday's vote sent global markets plunging on a worldwide selloff. u.s. stocks were hammered, suffering their worst losses in ten months. the dow tanking 610 points. the s&p 500 down 76. and nasdaq off 202 points. we'll cover all aspects of this tonight. fox business anchor trish regan
3:01 pm
on "your money." correspondent kevin corke on how president obama reagented to a move he strongly opposed. correspondent doug mckelway on an anti-establishment wave sweeping the globe. we begin in london with correspondent benjamin hall, where both sides of the debate face a new reality. good evening, benjamin. >> good evening, chris, this result has stunned europe. it's led to a lot of fear around the whole continent, but also here in the uk to a lot of hope. but right now, the hard work really has to begin. global stock markets suffered a massive one-day plunge with reports of about $2 trillion lost in value with european stocks losing 7% in their worst day since 2008. and still, the uk's biggest and hardest challenge lies ahead. now that it has sovereignty, it must deal with the messy divorce from europe. to do that, they must trigger article 50, that formally notifies their intention to withdraw from the eu and sets a two-year clock running.
3:02 pm
vast negotiating teams will be formed. late into the night, tensions rose as votes piled up for the leave campaign. as the night went on, they dared to home. >> we've got our country back. >> the result was announced just after 7:00 a.m. followed by wild celebrations. and then an hour later by david cameron's sudden resignation. >> the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different path. and as such, i think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction. >> cameron's one-time ally turned rival, boris johnson is touted as his successor. he was mobbed by a crowd before going on to thank voters. >> today i think all of us politicians should thank the british people because in a way they've been doing our job for us. they hire us to deal with the hard questions. and this year, we gave them one
3:03 pm
of the biggest and toughest questions of all. >> many people in the uk are today reeling. including former prime minister tony blair. >> yes, i'm very sad, i'm very sad for our country. for europe, for the world, actually. because it's got vast implications economically and politically. in terms of our security. >> one of the main concerns is a further disintegration of the eu. another of other countries have anti-eu movements, france, germany, spain, sweden, italy. all have parties pushing for referendums. >> they'll be watching closely to see how britain fares. it's not just other countries who are watching it closely, scotland and northern ireland voted to remain in the european union and the first minister of scotland has said that there will be another referendum on scottish independence on the table soon. so the united kingdom, chris, does seem as if it may not be
3:04 pm
united very much longer. back to you. >> benjamin hall reported live from london. benjamin, thank you for that. president obama personally campaigned for britain to stay in the eu, a move that angered many in that country but now dealing with the results, the president had a more subdued reaction. correspondent kevin corke reports on mr. obama's change of tone. while the uk's relationship with the eu will change, one thing that will not change, is the special relationship between our two nations. >> knowing he was more than 5,000 miles away from its epicenter, president obama acknowledged a major global shift in politics as britain voted to leave the european union. >> it spokes to the ongoing challenges raised by globalization. >> in many ways the outcome was a stunning rejection of the president himself. sho back in april added his voice to the chorus of those
3:05 pm
calling on those to reject the brexit. >> our focus is, in negotiating with a big bloc for the european union to get a trade agreement done. the uk is going to be in the back of the queue. >> global markets buckled on the news, bleeding red as all the major indices fell dramatically. the dow down more than 600 points during the day as investors worried what would follow. even as analysts warn of continued and significant market volatility ahead until a better understanding of the consequences of brexit was gained, lawmakers in washington were calling for calm. >> i believe the markets will eventually stabilize. that point number one. point number two. all the more reason for america to lead. america needs to lead. >> treasury secretary jack lew said we will work closely with london and brussels and our international partners to insure continued economic stability, security and prosperity in
3:06 pm
europe and beyond. >> perhaps of little emotional consolation who saw their 401(k)s take a real hit today. but experts say don't panic. >> i want to walk people away from the ledge this is not something that they should be concerned about. in fact i think in the long run it's going to be healthy for markets and healthy for economies, it's going to mean that we're going to move away from the kind of socialist model of europe that now even, the british voters say is a failure. >> chris, the white house says the president stands by his so-called back of the queue comments. we're told that he reached out to british prime minister david cameron today and said he looked forward to seeing him in a couple of weeks at the nato summit in poland. perhaps our next and best chance to find out what brexit will mean for all of us. chris? >> kevin corke at the white house, thanks. the world will now be watching as britain negotiates its exit from the european union. as the uk heads into uncharted
3:07 pm
territory, some are wondering what led vote tlers to take such a momentous step. correspondent doug mckelway reports on whether today's decision is part of a bigger trend around the globe. >> britain's exit from the european union is already igniting a fire that's been smoldering across europe. right-leaning france has been gaining strength and calling for their own exit. >> translator: the french as well must have the opportunity to choose the way to freedom to give back to france its full sovereignty. >> polls show a majority of the dutch want to put the eu exit to a vote. >> i'm jealous and trying to achieve the same in the netherlands next year. >> interest has spawned a tidal wave of brexit variations. finn-ish, slovak-out and deportugal. critics say rather than simplify
3:08 pm
europe's structure. the eu government in brussels has added layers of bureaucracy. >> there's a general sense of malaise that the european union is not working and part of the reason why it isn't working is because europe is overregulated. power has been increasingly centralized in brussels. >> europe's unease mirrors u.s. worries over uncontrolled immigration, the result in crime, terror threats and failure by some populations to assimilate in the broader culture. >> people want to see borders, they don't necessarily want people pouring into their country that they don't no who they are and where they come from. they have no idea. >> there's also frustration over economic decline. and resentment that the more productive eu economies like britain and germany have had to bail out the weaker ones like greece. the votes that put over the top came from the uk's equivalent of the rust belt. >> if that happens, more and
3:09 pm
more countries will look at the bridge example and say we can do that, too. >> critics warn that britain is risking its economy without the auspices of the eu. but britain has a long history of thriving in international trade. having been its leader for the better part of the 18th, 19th and part of the 20th century. >> more on all of this with the panel. >> as we've said markets around the world and on wall street reacted negatively to the uk's vote to sever ties with the european union. what does it mean for your money? the host of the intelligence report on fox business, trish regan joins me from new york. good evening, trish. >> good evening, chris. >> let me just say, a lot of us took a hit in our friks toda401. how should we manage our savings? >> good questions, chris. i think in this environment, i
3:10 pm
think you can anticipate an crease in volatility. lot of people are questioning what is next, one of the reports just mentioned the concern about could there be another country on the heels of this one that says okay, enough, i'm done with the eu and that's very likely a scenario in which you could see portugal, you could see spain, you could see italy potentially saying or even greece, that they might exit the agreement. all bets are off in terms of that. i'll tell you, chris, markets do not like uncertainty. this is one of the reasons why you saw such a huge decline today. because markets have not priced this in. so i think you can be assured of one thing. there's going to be an increase in volatility, that said, take a deep breath, the u.s. is doing fine, not great, but okay, fine. and the uk will be fine as well. >> well let's talk about that. because there have been a lot of predictions about this creating a recession in europe. and possibly a slowdown in the
3:11 pm
atlantic. what are the chances that? >> there's a real chance it could happen. it could be a painful interim here. >> the reason for that chris, you think about our economy for example, we export so many of our goods. and we use u.s. dollars, we we're paid in u.s. dollars. other countries are paying us dollars for those goods. given what has happened to the british pound, sinking to a level we haven't seen in years, given that their currency is so weak, we are comparatively that much stronger. which means our goods are that much more expensive around the world. and consequently, could you see u.s. companies taking a little bit of a hit in terms of their ability to sell. that's one concern, there's also the trade agreements that the uk those work out with the nation it is trades with and that could be a little bit of a problem in the near future in that people may not be as willing to trade with them. >> i'm looking for a silver lining here are there any pluses for britain in europe and the
3:12 pm
u.s. in all of this? >> absolutely. i think the silver lining is that you see people are not going to sit by and allow themselves to be dictated to by a bunch of bureaucrats in brussels, and you know what, if the eu wants a chance at survival, it needs to wake up and look at what happened overnight there. and it needs to say okay, we've got to get our act together. we need maybe an alexander hamilton type to come in and bring europe together or we need to recognize that this is an experiment that just simply can't work. i think either way, you're getting closer to some resolution, chris. and that's important. for europe's sake, for our sake, for the world's sake. >> trish regan of the fox business network, thank you. up next, donald trump miss mixes business with politics and sanders concedes to clinton, sort of. first, here's what some fox affiliates around the country are covering. fox 5 in new york, more security will be in place for sunday's
3:13 pm
gay pride parade. thousands of officers will be on duty along with members from special counterterror groups, it comes two weeks after an attack on a gay nightclub in orlando. storms killed 20 people in west virginia, including a boy swept away by flooding. creeks became rivers and one home on fire was seen floating away as the storm dumped up to nine inches of rain in some parts, leaving tense of thousands of residents without power. and this is a live look at some of the aftermath of a wildfire in kern county, california. the big story there tonight, two people have been found dead following the fast-moving fire that has so far destroyed more than 80 homes in the central california mountains. the fire has grown to 29 square miles and burned through several communities. in just four hours. that's tonight's live look outside the beltway from "special report." we'll be right back.

3:17 pm
in our presidential campaign. donald trump seemed to land in
3:18 pm
the right place at the right time, while some say hillary clinton's response could have been sharper. we have fox team coverage. correspondent jennifer griffin reports on how brexit could be a problem for clinton. but senior national correspondent john roberts begins our coverage from scotland. where donald trump saw the vote as an endorsement of his policies. good evening, john. >> donald trump's trip to scotland was supposed to be all about business, but it quickly became all about politics, in a way that may give him a boost back home. it was a trip giving republican leaders fits. ill-timed and unnecessary, they said. in true fashion trump found himself in exactly the right place at the right time on the right side of the issue. >> i saw this happening. i could read what was happening here. >> whether it was blind luck, the brexit vote gave trump the opportunity to say he has his
3:19 pm
finger on the pulse against global populism and hillary clinton and barack obama completely misread what was going on. >> he came in and tried to convince people to stay. and i thought it was inappropriate and she doubled down and she did the same thing. and obviously for the 219th time, they were wrong. they're always wrong and that's the problem with them. >> the fears that stoked the brexit of open borders, and uncontrolled migration, fed into what trump has been selling for a year now. about the need for a massive overhaul of immigration policy and border security. >> you're taking your country back, you're going to let people that you want into your country and people that you don't want, or people that you don't think are going to be appropriate for your knt, our good for your country, you're not going to have to take. >> in neighboring ireland, vice president joe biden today warned that immigrants are being made convenient scapegoats for the anxiety that's gripped the world about terrorism, economic unease
3:20 pm
and other global ills. >> all this provides fertile terrain for reactionary politicians and demagogues, peddling xenophobia. >> trump acknowledged in the near-term the brexit could be difficult. the plunging pound, turmoil in the stock market. in the long run, he said people will be better served by shrugging off the status quo. >> my opinion is that what happened should have happened and i think they'll end up being stronger for it and they'll control their country and they'll control everything about their country. >> what trump is really say something that reward is rarely realized without taking some significant risk and that if nations continue to do the same thing again and again, nothing will ever change. it's a message he's going to take back to the united states, knowing he now has some powerful backing. chris? >> john roberts with the trump campaign in scotland. john thank you. on the democratic side, the vote
3:21 pm
in britain could be trouble for hillary clinton. but she's got bigger problems over the continuing issue of transparency. still. as correspondent jennifer griffin reports, democratic opponent bernie sanders gave clinton a boost today. >> hillary clinton aides downplayed comparisons to the populist anti-immigrant vote to leave the eu and suggestion it is may portend well here in the u.s. for donald trump. >> so it's important that we recognize that this american election is about what is happening here in america, not what's happening in yorkshire or in cardiff. >> arguing instead, the economic fallout from the british decision require as steady hand, that of clinton, not trump. >> rather than get the facts, he just makes things up or makes basic factual errors. he tweeted that scotland was quote going wild over the vote. even though scotland voted overwhelmingly against leaving the eu. donald trump's just not concerned with the facts of
3:22 pm
these cases. >> clinton released this measured statement nearly ten hours after the brexit results came in. quote we respect the choice the people of the united kingdom have made. our first task has to be to make sure that the economic uncertainty created by these events does not hurt workinging families here in america. a voter bloc that she's had a hard time winning over if her primary challenger, bernie sanders, who still hasn't endorsed clinton, but hinted he might. >> are you going to vote for hillary clinton in november? >> yes. yeah, i think the issue right here is i'm going to do everything i can to defeat donald trump. >> clinton continues to be dogged by questions about her private email server. and why she did not provide all of her emails to the state department. in a new report, the "associated press" found at least 75 meetings with political donors and long-time clinton foundation contributors, omitted from her official state department
3:23 pm
calendar. clinton's press secretary says the revelations are not new and the discrepancy of calendar notes merely reflected a more detailed schedule of the calendar it raises more questions about how she and her staff handled official government records. chris? house republicans laid out plans today for a simpler tax code. speaker paul ryan unveiled the final installment of the gop's agenda. the tax plan would slash rates by 20% for businesses, and 33% for individuals. one thing the plan doesn't do is line up totally with ideas from the gop's presumptive nominee, donald trump. entirely preventible, that's how one cdc official described flint's water crisis. according to a report from the center force disease control, blood levels in the city's children under the age of six rose significantly after the city switched from detroit's water system to the flint river. the cdc report comes a day after
3:24 pm
federal officials announced filtered tap water is now safe for everyone in flint. next up, more water danger as texas closes several beaches over an invisible threat that comes at a real cost to humans. whatever you're drinking. wherever you are. splenda zero is a fun, easy way to get the perfect amount of sweetness, down to the last sip. zero calories. zero carbs. zero sugar. zero effort. new splenda zero.

the gun debate in congress remains deadlocked two weeks after the shooting in orlando. the senate blocked five gun measures this week. and house democrats gave up after a 26-hour sit-in on the house floor. but while washington is gridlocked over guns, some states are voting on measures of their own. senior correspondent adam housley reports from los angeles. >> pushed by democratic lieutenant governor gavin newsom, the gun control initiative in california, called safety for all includes six provisions, which if passed
3:29 pm
would be among the toughest in the nation. background checks for all ammunition purchases, a ban on magazines for ten rounds and licensing of ammunition vendors. >> the gun in itself has never killed anyone. what about the initiative. >> the initiative would mandate the reporting of lost or stolen guns and force convicted felons and those with violent misdemeanors to relinquish guns after a conviction. >> the only guns we're taking are guns out of the hands of convicted felons. >> but opponents say newsom is using the gun debate to help his gubernatorial bid and new regulation was overwhelm law enforcement and courts. >> ask a judge how overburdened our courts are. how we have unfunded liabilities that are already lost. things that are supposed to be done and the courts can't get them done. >> california isn't the only state trying to tighten its gun laws, hawaii this week became the first state to add gun owners to an fbi database which
3:30 pm
will notify police if they are arrested elsewhere in the country. >> one of our hawaii gun owners is arrested, we want to know what that crime is. >> and then monitor it, if it's necessary. >> critics argue since gun ownership is a constitutional right, uncle sam shouldn't be keeping a database on those who follow the law. >> the wrap-back issue violates the 1986 regulation, the federal regulation of no database on firearms owners, we're very disappointed and the likelihood is quite high that it will require legal action. >> the statewide gun initiative here in the golden state qualified for the november ballot after supporters collected 600,000 signatures it needs a simple majority vote in order to pass. chris? >> adam, thank you. a second u.s. navy commander is out, as the navy doles out punishment over the capture of ten american sailors by iran. captain kyle moses was relieved
3:31 pm
of his duties and reassigned. he was responsible for the sailors who wandered into iranian territory in january. iran held them for 15 hours, subjecting them to humiliation on camera before releasing them back to the u.s. the squadron commander was already fired and disciplined for seven other sailors is still under review. families looking for summer fun in texas face a new danger -- ten beaches along the gulf coast are under a safety advisory, not over sharks or even jellyfish. as correspondent casey steagall reports, the very real threat there, is a flesh-eating bacteria. >> the beach is a summer staple. a place to soak up the sun and maybe catch a wave. but something is lurking in the water here that can lead to serious health concerns. >> the doctor in the emergency room said it was a flesh-eating virus. >> 50-year-old brian parrot went
3:32 pm
in the water off the coast of galveston for father's day weekend. days later, he wound up in the intensive care unit. his leg, looking like this -- >> i'm wanting to know if he's going to live. >> the married father of three had to have part of his leg amputated as doctors work to nail down the specific pathogen he picked up. >> the flesh-eating bacteria is common in salt and brackish water. it's more likely to occur if somebody with a preexisting health condition. >> aside from being diabetic, physicians believe parrot also had a cut on his leg. and that's how the bacteria entered his body. some 200 miles down the coast in port aransus, texas yet another man became infected this week. officials believe they'll be able to save his leg, but adrian ruiz remains in a local hospital. being pumped with iv antibiotics. >> we ask people to pray.
3:33 pm
because that's, they'll get him through. >> back in the galveston area near houston, elevated bacteria levels have been discovered at 10 of the city's 52 beaches, signs have gone up warning folks to enter the water at their own risk. doctors say the bacteria that causes flesh-eating diseases is actually quite common this time of year. however, it is rare for humans to become infected. chris? >> casey, thank you. the fallout from brexit. our panel weighs in, next. nexium 24 hour introduces new, easy-to-swallow tablets. so now, there are more ways, for more people... to experience... complete protection from frequent heartburn. nexium 24hr. the easy-to-swallow tablet is here. you can use whipped topping made ...but real joyful moments.. are shared over the real cream in reddi-wip. ♪

if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no
3:37 pm
requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today. otezla. show more of you. the british people have voted to leave the european union, and their will must be respected. >> while the uk's relationship with the eu will change, one thing that will not change is the special relationship that exists between our two nations. >> let june the 23rd go down in
3:38 pm
our history as our independence day! >> that was nigel faraj, one of the leaders of the brexit movement reacting very differently from the leaders of britain and the u.s. to the big vote. let's bring in our panel, steve hayes of the "weekly standard," david cottony, from "u.s. news and world report" and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. big picture, steve. what does this mean for britain, for europe and for the economy? >> well i think it's neither the case that the sky is falling now. in britain, but it's also not the case that the sun will shine 365 days a year over london. it's a little bit of both. there will no doubt be short-term economic implications, there's a real possibility that a recession could result. i think depending on how abrupt the changes are implemented. but over the long-term in ten
3:39 pm
years, it's hard to see how this will have a significant impact on britain and its economy when things stabilize and normalize, on what i think will likely be a difficult transition period. >> and what will the impact be for europe? >> well the impact for europe, i think is more troubling for, if you believe in the eu, this is a blow to the eu, no question about it. i mean britain is the fifth largest economy in the world. carried huge power, helped the eu reach its compacts, gave it sort of force that i think it will lack to a certain extent without britain as part of it. >> i want to talk about this, i've been setting the history. the idea of a unified europe, really sprang out of world war ii and the idea that in just a few years, a few decades we've had two world wars and the idea was that if had you a unified europe it would end some of
3:40 pm
those nationalistic divisions, it would end war, it would create more economic clout and the recovery in europe from the war that had torn it apart. what happens now? >> i think it was fascinating to see the difference between the interviews with some of the people in the rural areas, working-class people who complained about not being able to get a doctor appointment. you know, complaining about the effects of immigration in their local areas on crime, on education, mirrors a lot of what's going on in this country. i think the most pressing question is -- will this have a cascading effect across europe. you're seeing a lot of foreign ministers saying this isn't going to happen here, but does ireland go next, does scotland? do you see any other movements go on. think that, then, triggers a bigger problem for the eu. there's a question, if the eu can survive without the uk alone. i think if you get a cascading effect of other european
3:41 pm
countries saying hey, they did this, we can, too, that then, becomes a problem. >> charles a lot of people look at the populace revoltth and they say maybe that's what's, well to a certain degree it is, maybe that could cascade and grow here in the united states to the benefit of donald trump. what do you think? >> i think it's too easy a translation. this is a problem that began long before the immigration wave. this is a result of what you talked about, the origins of the eu and how the idea of a very utopian idea and successful for a while, was corrupted. the idea was after the two world wars, the worst in human history, they wanted to create something and they did, that would ultimately reconcile germany and france. that began as a european coal commission, it had to do with
3:42 pm
commerce, it grew to encompass 28 countries and succeeded in the sense that for the first time in 1,000 years, the idea of intraeuropean war was inconceivable. nobody could even imagine germany, france, italy going to war against each other. the problem is that the institution that was created to achieve that, and it is a great achievement, became a bureaucratic monstrosity, which tried to add onto the economic union, a political union that people were never asked for. when they had referendum, it was rejected and the eu would go around it. it created a supernationalist institution which suppressed nationalism. which you can only do for so long and this is the first exit. but the one thing i think that those who revel in this and i understand why the british wanted to do it, it's sort of suppressed and it supplant the their own democracy the most venerable in the world, is that
3:43 pm
i think it will lead to the break-up of the united kingdom. apart from the eu, which i think inevitably will not survive. as a result of this. but scotland wants out. because it wants to be in the european union. and think of northern ireland. it took decades to figure that out. to reconcile them. as of today, if you're in northern ireland. can you walk into the republic of ireland without a passport. it's essentially your country. the minute that britain leaves the eu, that becomes a frontier where you need a passport. the northern irish are going to want to secede and join ireland. i think in ten years you could have a britain that is only wales and england. >> so great britain is no longer great britain. >> i think those who revel in the recovery of the sovereignty of great britain, could discover that it doesn't exist in ten years. >> as we've said, donald trump happened to be in scotland today, a lot of people said it was a bad idea. it turned out to be interesting
3:44 pm
to be there at the time of the brexit vote. he was promoting two of his golf courses, that's the reason he went over. he had some interesting reactions to brexit. take a look. >> they want to be able to have a country again. soy think you're going to have this happen more and more. i really believe that. i think it's happening in the united states. if the pound goes down, a they're going to do more business, when the pound goes down, more people are coming to turnberry, frankly. >> how does this play into the trump campaign? >> i think he had a real opportunity here. to make a case about the perils -- and i think there are some parallels, to be sure. but he didn't take that opportunity. he spoke about brexit for less than a minute. he spoke about his golf courses for more than ten minutes. he talked about the benefits, potential benefits of turnberry, if the economy turns south. in britain. which is probably not the really the right argument to be making. at the same time he blamed the whole thing on barack obama having come out for britain remaining as part of the eu.
3:45 pm
it shows a tin ear. i don't think he took advantage of an opportunity that was gifted to him. >> briefly, david, the fact is there are some common themes here, populace movement, grassroots, anti-establishment, anti-immigration. the winners and as a result of globalism. that does track with donald trump's platform. >> the parallels are blairing and they're impossible to ignore today. but i think you know, given what charles said, i sort of agree with his point that, you know, our impulse as reporters is to make this the biggest event because it's happening today and there's all of these great parallels, but there's a lot of differences as far as an election, we've got an electoral college in this country that will determine trump's fate. the second thing is how does trump explain this, if this does tank our economy. and hit our 401(k)s for months on end? if this does become an american crisis, is he going to say he was taking credit for it,
3:46 pm
endorsing it today. how does he explain his way out of that? >> that's easy, he's going to blame it on obama and clinton. >> something he wanted to happen, though. i think that's a tough -- >> well, that part will be forgotten. next up, we're going to continue, the friday lightning round.
