martha: we'll be back are reports on this mexican news conference with donald trump. jon: donald trump who kicked off his presidential campaign saying mexicans have brought drugs and crime to this country is ready to sit down with mexico's president. welcome to "happening now." i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm jenna lee.
a cornerstone of donald trump's campaign has been to build a wall and deport illegal immigrants living in this country. this comes at a time when polls show some dismal support from hispanics and mr. trump is trailing hillary clinton nationally. so has his position evolved during the fast year. >> when mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. they are bringing drugs, they are bringing crime, they are rapists. there can be a softening. we have some great people in this country, we have some great, great people in this country. but we are going to follow the laws of this country. we are going to build the wall and mexico is going to pay for the wall 100%. on day one i'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country.
jenna: at least one influential mexican doesn't mince words. >> first let me tell you, he is not welcome to mexico by 130 million people. we don't like him. we don't want him. we reject his visit. i don't understand why president pena has offered this opportunity. it's nothing more than a political stunt. jenna: byron york joins us. what do you think of this? is it a political stunt as vincente fox just said? >> it's high risk. we didn't know about this until last night. when a presidential candidate or president visits a foreign country, they want to be in control of things.
they don't want surprises. they don't want to be in a situation where stuff they didn't anticipate could happen, especially if the host is hostile to them. i think it will be a real question about how this goes. obviously the president of mexico is not very popular domestically in his own country. will he see a way to gain more popularity by scoring points with donald trump? who knows. that's why it's so high risk. jenna: you are looking for something unexpected to happen. >> we don't know what to expect. trump hasn't even laid out his sort of amended immigration policy. we know he won't waiver on the question of the mexican wall. so we -- everything is unclear about this. we don't know what everyone's motivations are.
jenna: it will be an interesting day no matter which way you slice it. the vice presidential candidate mike pence was talking to martha about how he sees this visit. let's run a little bit of that sound. >> you are seeing someone who doesn't come from a background in politics. hillary clinton is still processing whether she is going to go, when she is going to go. donald trump gets an invitation to sit down with our neighbor to the south. he makes the decision to sit down. he understands all negotiations begin with relationships. jenna: you say it's high risk and we can see why. does donald trump get points for taking that risk? >> i think he can get points for just showing up. he can say from now on, the president of mexico said terrible things about me, compared me to hitler, and i went down there to talk to him. i think you get points for showing up unless there is a
fiasco we don't anticipate in which case he will be criticized for having made a snap decision with no preparation. jenna: we'll see how he handles the unknown if that happens. in the meantime on this immigration speech, neither side, democrat or republican has really presented a solution immigration in our country. i'm curious how you would define a win for donald trump, byron. what does he need to do in this speech to make eight successful one? >> a huge part of the speech is going to be restating the immigration policy he has had all along. a bored wall, interior enforcement with things like e-verify and an entry-exit visa system. all that stuff is in his platform and will stay in his platform. i think we'll see some change in wording about how he handles the
11 or 12 illegal immigrants in the country illegally. he changed from last year when he said they have got to go. now he will say we are going to begin deporting criminal illegal immigrant immediately. and i think he's going to essentially lay out a step-by-step process in which he prioritizes which illegal immigrant are important to remove from the country to begin with, and which won't ever be removed. jenna: there has been a lot of talk about who donald trump will lose if he softens his stance on immigration. his most conservative supporters are not going to support hillary clinton. who could he lose by softening his answer on immigration? >> i have been to a lot of trump rallies and talked to a lot of supporters. if he said i'm not going to
build a wall, that would be a big issue. most of the sound bites where he vows to deport illegal immigrant are from last year. i have gone to a lot of speeches in which her in even mentioned it. i believe his supporters who want greater border security and interior enforcement. i believe his supporters will be fine with the idea of an aggressive deportation of criminal illegal immigrants, especially since they hear report of sanctuary is in which immigrant who came here illegally and since have committed crimes are being protected by cities that won't cooperate with the federal government. jenna: lots to watch for, byron. it's summer, we are suppose to be relaxing going into labor day. great to have you on the program. thank you. jon: donald trump's immigration peach could have main i am any
kaigs not just for his campaign, but for john mccain's. the five-term arizona senator easily won his senate primary, but will face a well-funded democratic opponent in november. anne kirkpatrick has criticized mccain for not withdrawing his support for the republican nominee. >> senator john mccain has described this as the race of my life. by that he didn't mean the republican primary. he was talking about the general election. he was out early to vote for himself in the primary. but in the end his vote and that of his wife who was with him didn't even matter. he won easily. but he knows a much tougher battle lies ahead of him. listen here. >> i'm confident of victory.
you always expect a tough fight. but i'm confident. it's always been a tough fight. it's one of the reasons why maybe i have won. reporter: his democrat i opponent in november is congresswoman anne kirkpatrick. she is well funded with good name recognition. she is not doing much media. one journalist said seeing her on the campaign trail is like a big foot sighting. but she did sit down and made it clear she'll make donald trump a main issue in her fight against senator mccain. >> it's unbelievable to me trump can say such hateful, racist, insulting things and john mccain still supports him. reporter: mccain is treading a fine line. at his victory party, during this speech he did not say the word trump once.
he have much want to make this a campaign about the mccain brand, not the trump brand. listen here. >> would a donald trump endorsement help or hurt you? >> i don't think it has much effect either way. i have been representing the people of arizona for many, many years and they judge me on me and my record. >> arizona is a state which is 30% hispanic. donald trump's immigration speech here later today is going to have a major impact on pretty much every race, not just the presidential, but down through the senate campaigns and all others. senator mccain and kirkpatrick the congresswoman will all be watching closely. while senator mccain dots like taking questions about donald trump. he walked away from my interview when i asked him a follow-up about trump. he will have to answer questions after this speech.
his views will be very important and it will be fascinating to see how much he embraces what donald trump says this afternoon or how much he runs away from it. jon: jonathan hunt, thank you. jenna: the islamic state announcing its spokesman and chief strategist have been killed. the pentagon says this man has bent target of an airstrike but hasn't confirmed they got him. reporter: the u.s. is assessing those report. but the russian ministry of defense on its facebook panel saying it took him out. the isis affiliated news agency reports that he died in the aleppo province in syria quote surveying the operations to repel the military campaigns against aleppo. isis's de facto capital.
he was the mouth piece of isis. calling for attacks by lone wolf attacks against westerners and europeans saying if you can't shoot them, then stab them. if you can't stab them, then run them over or bash their heads in with rocks. that's he's saying to isis supporters. pentagon spokesman peter cook said his removal from the battlefield. the fall foliaged a managed al-adnani was the target of a airstrike. and a russian bomb carried out the airstrike that killed al-adnani.
his death would be significant. the u.s. had a $5 million bounty on his head. he was at the top of the kill list as far as isis leaders go. the question is if he is dead, who will take his place? it will be someone even more vicious? jenna: general jack keane coming up. jon: there is new word on the murder of a new york city jogger. police are about to release the sketch of a man they want to talk to about the case. reportedly he's not a suspect. so why are police look for him. what the f.b.i. is saying about some new hillary clinton emails that were not part of the batch mrs. clinton initially turned over. we want to hear from you. do you expect big changes to donald trump's immigration
people would ask me in different countries that we traveled, what is your nationality and i would always answer hispanic. so when i got my ancestry dna results it was a shocker. i'm everything. i'm from all nations. i would look at forms now and wonder what do i mark? because i'm everything. and i marked other. discover the story only your dna can tell. order your kit now at ancestrydna.com.
jon: some crime stories we are following. attorneys for the so-called abludalflewso-called.he was seno probation after killing four people in a dwrung driving accident. his attorneys claimed he suffered from affluenza. police cleared a jogger after her father said he suspected someone he saw regularly in the
park who disappeared after the murder. a woman who was abducted by her husband's body was found and the husband is nowhere to be found. jenna: fox news learned the f.b.i. recovered 30 emails linked to the benghazi terror attack. this comes as the f.b.i. and department of justice are still trying to figure out exactly what they will be releasing to the public of this batch. our chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live with more. reporter: hillary clinton signed this statement under oath telling the court she hand over all her government records. but there are 30 more emails
relating to benghazi. they came a week after the 2012 attack. that's the same week mrs. clinton was at andrews air force base when the caskets were flown home. it could reopen the benghazi debate and re-energize that she told her daughter it was terrorism and told the public it was a video. the judge ordered the state department to update the court next week. >> the significance, the judges who have been producing the clinton people to turn the documents over and answer the questions under oath are not judges appointed by conservative republicans.
these are obama judges saying you need to provide answers and do it on a timetable the court wants, not whatever timetable suits you or the election calendar. reporter: portions of the f.b.i.'s investigative file could be released as early as this week, and this morning we were told not to expect part of that file today at least. jenna: thank you. jon: concerns are growing about russia's intentions in europe. a? who knows? you didn't read it. you can't even find it. the liberty mutual app with coverage compass™ makes it easy to know what you're covered for and what you're not. call liberty mutual for a free quote today at coverage compass™ gives you the policy information you need
europe as they ramp up troops and military drizzle. rush anownsed it will hold name exer-swies china in the south china sea. russia sent thousands of troops and tanks to the border with ukraine and launched air strikes in syria from iran. and reports that russia is increasingly conducting unannounced it in drills. so what is up with the russians? general keane is a retired general and fox news military analyst. should we be concerned about vladimir putin and what he is up to? >> most definitely. we could add to that list sophisticated missile defense
systems. what putin has done. he wanted to return russia to a position of strategic respect where they are back on the world stage. and he personally is respected and feared around the world. and i think he accomplished that. because of the weakness of this administration he's a master of psychological warfare. he's an able to take advantage of the paralysis this administration has when an adversary pushes back on them. when it comes to eastern europe. this is the goal he has in mind. it's his number one goal. he wants the create a situation where he can break the political will of the countries in eastern europe and weaken the transatlantic alliance between the united states and those countries to a point where he can create, for example, a false issue in h astone in estonia.
this is his strategic goal. he's moving slowly in that direction. jon: the list of russian actions isn't even complete. he turned lose a military ice breaker in the arctic. there is the question about russian hacking of the democratic national campaign committee and so forth. then he's offering to broker peace talks between the is trailies and the principles in the middle east. he has his fingers in pies all over the world. >> he does. that's we wanted and that's what he has got. he positioned himself as a world leader now. that is a reality we have to face.
the arctic, arctic, 40 per are of the oil and gas reserved untapped are up there. he has been working on this for a number of years. it just came to light how aggressive they have been because they want to control the waterways. in the middle east, john, he is actually doing arms deals with every sunni-arab country ever since we disengaged in the middle east and he wants to build nuclear power plants for them it's not surprising he's trying to broker a peace with the israelis. as ironic as that is given the united states historically has held the most influential role in the middle east for a country outside the region. putin has been dramatically moving into that role. jon: he gobbled up crimea. he has 100,000 troops along the border of ukraine.
ukraine is very nervous after losing crimea. what should the u.s. be doing? >> we should be doing what we have not been doing. standing up to russian aggression and strengthening the spine of some of our european allies who most of them are pretty feckless and willing to cede everything to them. but this takes a strong voice and willingness to deal with adverse consequences. when russia put its military force into syria, the first things they bombed was the cia-backed organization that we have given our weapons to. we told them not to do that, but they did it. we should have gone after their airfield and said next time we'll destroy your aircraft. that would have shut them down. but we ring our hands and say you shouldn't do that and the
rhetoric goes on and the aggression goes on. jon: the chief strategist of isis, al-adnani has been killed possibly in a russian airstrike we are told. do you know anything more about how he died? and tell bus this guy and what his death represents. >> i don't think we confirmed his death, the means is irrelevant. the fact that he's dead is huge. isis as we know it today is largely attributed to this man. they formed a safe haven in syria. al-adnani went worldwide with compelling messages to build an organization that grew to 30,000 plus. that gave al-adnani his invasion force for iraq. and he put together an
intelligence organization that he positions in various countries, organized in syria by nationality, and they conduct attacks we have been seeing take place on a world stage. he put these organizations in germany, belgium, france, spain, austria, bangladesh, working for him, motivating to conduct attacks against their fellow citizens. in all cases inspiring them. this is a big deal that he's no longer there. and he's as valuable as al-baghdadi and more so to the organization. jon: general jack keane, we appreciate your insight. thank you. jenna: should the entire clinton family step away from the foundation that bears their name? even with no proof of wrongdoing some democratic leaders think

everyone said it's so hard to be a musician, but i can't imagine doing anything else. now that the train makes it easier to get here, the neighborhood is really changing. i'm always hopping on the train, running all over portland. i have to go wherever the work is. trains with innovative siemens technology help keep cities moving, so neighborhoods and businesses can prosper. i can book 3 or 4 gigs on a good weekend. i'm booked solid for weeks. it takes ingenuity to make it in the big city. >> the only way to learn the full depth of her public corruption is to read the 33,000 emails that she deleted. another 30 emails were discovered by the state
department that hillary clinton failed to turn over. these were emails about benghazi. hillary clinton said under oath that she turned over all of her work-related emails. but we now know that i just one more clinton lie. jenna: donald trump on the attack. over 30 emails discovered in the f.b.i.'s investigation of hillary clinton server. a batch of messages that may be related to benghazi. we don't know what they are so we are waiting to see them. in the mean type the entire clinton family is under pressure within the democratic party to relinquish control of their foundation. the "wall street journal" reporting that the clinton family is being pressed by some party officials and donors to sever all ties to the
foundation. fair and balanced, gentlemen, it's nice to have you both today. simon, as a form adviser to the clintons what you think about the foundation issue? what about making bigger decisions after? why have a little bit of a question about what that relationship could look like in the future? >> they didn't want to move too aggressively to shut it down. it would look to presumptuous. it would have looked like they wouldn't elect. they have been very clear that was a major factor in their thinking. it would have looked arrogant in terms of cutting their ties. bill clinton announced he's not taking any speaking fees if hillary wins. they will sever ties from hillary and the foundation.
chelsea will remain and they will transition most of the programs to other foundation. this thing is in the process of being wound down. they are in the process of cutting ties. it will happen more slowly than people want. jenna: i get the point simon was making about it, tony, but the foundation could continue it work but they don't have to be involved as of tomorrow. >> why didn't they do it when hillary clinton was appointed secretary of state, our chief diplomatic officer. and at the same time was having a family foundation receiving millions dofl of dollars -- millions of dollars from morning corporations and foreign citizens. this idea of shutting down the clinton foundation as reinforced the idea there is tacit guilt
and an appearance of impropriety so long as they are in public office or hold any sort of public role. jenna: why not just get rid of the criticism all together? >> it will be interesting to see what happens over the next few weeks. this was very painful for them. bill clinton was very proud of the good work. you know the majority of said patients in the world get their aid medicine through the clinton foundation. i now it's been treated as a pay-to-play thing. but it's doing great things and saving lives. i think it's possible they held on to it for a little too long, but we are in the process of winding this thing down and transferring the assets toother foundation. there will be a debate next few weeks about whether they are doing it fast enough. they are comfortable with what they are doing.
jenna: i want to get to this email issue. we don't know what these 0 emails are. they could be duplicates. but perhaps they are not. that raises questions we'll get to. this is a question that was raised in the "investors daily." but a new batch of 30 emails possibly related to the benghazi terrorist attacks has been found. was she planning a family vacation in libya? is that how she is going to explain how the emails wound up in the account's trash bin? >> the pattern of lies continue. this not one honest thing hillary clinton has said in the last two years in public in terms of her record dealing with this server.
jenna: how do republicans make democrats care about that to the point some other voters will come over to the republican side. >> it's not about democrats caring about that. there are a large number of independents who are totally unreconciled who they will vote for. they view both choices as not very good. after three weeks of the clinton foundation being the dominant story. emails we are learning like the benghazi batch coming out due to being forced by a federal judge to turn them over. hillary clinton's unfavorable is close to 0%. that's the exact same number donald trump has. democrats have always said we know she is not favorably viewed by the people. but trump is far worse. guess what, the story has a cumulative weight and to it has taken on her. jenna: what about that, what about that evening of the score
and a risk to the clintons with the independent voters? >> it's clearly a problem. i think in every campaign you have assets and liabilities. hill are you has a lot of assets and she also has liabilities. what they are doing today is refocusing the conversation on foreign policy and trump's riskiness, the riskiness of electing donald trump. you will see the economic arguments, the television ads getting ramped up to mike sure this story about the email is not dominating the news the way it has the past couple weeks. they have got to do a better job of managing it and they have to do a better job of making the case to others that she'll be a better president than donald trump. jenna: it seems like a good thing, the candidates are even when it comes to not trustworthiness at 0%. >> that's the -- at 60%.
>> she is going down in the estimation of the american public and donald trump has had three good weeks. jenna: three good weeks can be lost in a moment and trajectory in the wrong directing not be positive. we'll watch for further discussion. jon: creepy clown sightings in the woods are leaving a community on edge. sounds like a steven king novel. but authorities say they think it might be real. what children told investigators and why police are stepping up patrol. better buckle up. that inactive satellite radio of yours is ready to roll. because the siriusxm free listening event

found in her 16-year-old daughter's bedroom. she says they were in bed kissing when her mom kicked open the bedroom door. she has been charged. joining us now, wendy patrick, a veteran prosecutor and and defense attorney. , the charges filed against the mother. is that appropriate in a case like this? >> what investigators have to look at, what facts and circumstances were available to the mother. what did she see, what did she hear, what did she know. she is not the first parent to find a tbroinld or girlfriend in a teenager's bedroom? but did the mother knot it was going on?
was it a scenario where she thought her daughter was in danger? we don't have any facts and circumstances yet because it hasn't gone to a preliminary hearing. it's hard to say because we are not privy to all the acts the prosecutors have. jon: we contacted the local shaffer and police chief to get details about the investigation. but we are told that the mother had met this guy before. but he's 31 years old, diana in the bedroom of a 16-year-old girl. mom kicks the door down. we know there is a step taught more also lives in the house. he had also gone to work when this happened. could any of this be justified in front of a jury of 12 people? >> it will be difficult to prove self-defense.
she has to prove she had a reasonable fear for her safety or her daughter's safety. the fact that she met this person before is problematic for her defense. but this is a 31-year-old man in the bedroom of a 16-year-old girl. that in itself could be a crime. jon: it was described as a home invasion, that she found an intruder in her daughter's bedroom. if she has met him before, or over there before. maybe mom didn't know he had been there before. but she had met him. can she still call him an intruder, saying she didn't know who was in there with her kid? >> absolutely. if there is a 31-year-old man the bedroom my 16-year-old daughter, i would be terrified and want to chase him out of there. whether she needed to fire a shot while he was running for the door, that will depend on the facts that come out as what
he said during the preliminary hearing, whether he took steps to cause more of a threat or if she was just in her tragic trying to harm him physically. jon: there is another weird case we wanted to talk about. a strange case involving children who say they are being lured into the woods by clowns in greeneville county, south carolina. what's this all about?ne we'll take it up with our legal panel when we return. who knows? you didn't read it. you can't even find it. the liberty mutual app with coverage compass™ makes it easy to know what you're covered for and what you're not. call liberty mutual for a free quote today at coverage compass™ gives you the policy information you need at a glance. available 24/7 on your mobile device. switch to liberty mutual and you could save up to $509.
jon: in our earlier legal segment i didn't mention what happened to the 31-year-old man who was caught in a 16-year-old's bedroom. he was shot twice in the arm. he is going to be okay. the mother has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon. now a stranger case involving clown sightings? greeneville, south carolina. the sheriff's office said it has received many complaints about people in clown makeup terrorizing children and adults. the children saying the clowns are trying to lure them into the woods with money. i guess until they arrest one of these people, if that's indeed what happens, it's hard to know where this case could go.
but can you be arrested or charged for being a clown in the woods trying to entertain or trying to lure a child? >> it's definitely creepy. there is nothing that's not creepy about this case and clowns in general. but what it comes down to -- not to the offend the clown community -- jon: these are apparently creepy clowns. >> the object of what they are trying to accomplish is to scare kids. the question then becomes is them luring them in an attempted kidnapping? that's where the leg and then there are some indications or stories that there are concerned citizens shooting -- firing weapons into the dark woods to try to hit a clown and i guess -- i'm not exactly clear on what it is they are trying to accomplish.
but they are setting themselves up for legal consequences whether they hit a clown or another human being and harm them. jon: i have been to greeneville, a beautiful town and fast growing. the kids said that the clowns were apparently living in a house in the woods at the edge of a lake. police went there, they found no clown paraphernalia or anything like that. is it possible this is a kids' prank? >> are these clowns pranksters or presented towards. thp. this is right off the pages of steven king's "it." if these are predators, having prosecuted sex crimes, i always tell jurors, don't expect a predator to dress up like a clown at a children's party. but that's what these people attempt to be doing. it's not just the costume. there is offering money and
candy. trying to lure these children into the woods, if they are to be believed. it's not the kind of thing you traditionally see. and a lot of kids are scared of clowns. it's not the bers costume to have. jon: there was one adult woman who said she saw a clown waving at her under a streetlight. wendy patrick. and diane thank you both. if you're approaching 65, now's the time to get your ducks in a row. to learn about medicare, and the options you have. you see, medicare doesn't cover everything - only about 80% of your part b medical expenses.
