northern lights was captured on an air canada flight between alberta and winnipeg at 36,000 feet. thanks for joining us today. if you're a patriot's fan, congratulations. >> president trump with a warning for a judge that blocked his temporary travel ban. if anything happens, it's the judge's felt. will the white house win? and the white house is defending russian vladimir putin by insisting the united states has plenty of killers and america is not innocent. mike pence is supporting his words while other republicans are pushing back. did you catch the game? tom brady talking about his team's incredible comeback today. a game, a ring, memories to cherish. but somebody stole his game jersey. let's do the news.
i'm harris faulkner in for shepard smith. the trump administration has just three hours left to file its latest argues in high stakes legal battle over immigration. attorneys for washington state and minnesota told the ninth circuit court of appeals in san francisco today making the president's travel ban effective again would unleash chaos again. the court has order to respond by 6:00 p.m. but president trump is defending his order. here's what he said in an exclusive interview with bill o'reilly yesterday. >> i think it was smooth. i think the pickets or whoever they were that were out there, quite a few of them for a little while and that made it look unsmooth. delta airlines had a major
airplane with planes coming in because of computers. that made it less smooth. you had 109 people out of hundreds of thousands of travelers and all we did is vet those people carefully. >> according to "the new york times," 109, that number was from preliminary calculations during the early hours of the president's travel ban. the homeland security department on tuesday reported officials had stopped 721 travelers from boarding flights. it reported the feds had processed waivers from 1,000 green card holders. this comes after a federal judge on friday temporarily lifted the ban nationwide in response to a lawsuit from the attorney general of washington and minnesota. that judge is james robart from the u.s. district court in seattle. the ninth circuit court rejected a request from the justice department to set aside that ruling. president trump lashed out at
the judge on twitter yesterday writing "just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. if something happens, blame him and the court system. people pouring in, bad." he also tweeted this: "i have instructed homeland security to check people carefully. courts are making the judge difficult." much more ahead on the legal court battle that is going on. first though, president trump is defending his approach to u.s. relations with vladimir putin. that story is developing this hour. the commander-in-chief told bill o'reilly that he respects president putin and that it's better to get along with russia than not get along with them. >> will i get along with them? i have no idea. >> putin is a killer. >> a lot of killers. we have a lot of killers. you think our country is so innocent? you think our country is so innocent? >> i don't know of any government leaders that are killers. >> take a look at what we've
done. made a lot of mistakes. i've been against the war in iraq from the beginning. a lot of people were killed. a lot of killers around, believe me. >> president trump said russia could be a valuable partner in the fight against the islamic state and other terror groups. russian officials say they want fox news to apologize for bill o'reilly's comments calling president putin a killer. bill o'reilly plans to respond to the kremlin tonight. you can watch for that yourself. we have team fox coverage. trace gallagher has more details on the lawsuit over president trump's travel ban. let's go to john roberts who is live outside the white house. john what more are we learning about the latest phase in the court battle? >> harris, good afternoon. we know the department of justice attorneys are putting together a briefing for the three-judge panel making their argument for why they believe this temporary restraining order suspending certain sections of the president's extreme vetting executive order should be lifted. sources here at the white house tells me that they're going to make the following arguments in
addition to others, this is at what is at the center of the case. that the president acted within his statutory powers that the constitution gives him broad authority over national security which includes within limits who is let into the country and when. further, they'll make the case that the white house -- the immigration ban is temporary for purposes of national security, not a permanent measure. they'll also stipulate that the executive order does not cover green card holders, though you remember in the early going those people got caught up in it to a degree. the attorneys general in washington and minnesota will want the order to stay in place. the order is damaging washington's company and washington-based company and undermining washington's sovereign interest. and mcdill air force base a short time ago, there was plenty
of support for his executive order on extreme vetting. listen. >> we need strong programs so that people that love us and want to love our country and will end up loving our country are allowed in. not people that want to destroy us and destroy our country. [cheers & applause] freedom, security and justice will prevail. >> our judge napolitano is very clear when it comes to the powers that the president has in his executive order. listen here. >> it grants to the president the authority to suspend the immigration status of any person, class of people or group of people based upon the
president's judgment alone that their immigration may adversely affect public health or national security. that's what president trump has done. >> it's likely, harris, all of this no matter who of prevails will end up in the supreme court. harris? >> harris: interesting. we're waiting to see a justice confirmed in that. right now it's a 4-4, which could mean a tie. let's talk russia. what about the president's comments about russia? >> president is getting a lot of flak of drawing a moral equivalent for what president putin has done in russia and things occurred here in the united states or the order of the united states over a decade. getting it not just from democrats but republicans, too. marco rubio said when has a democratic political activist been poisoned by the gop or vice versa? we're not the same as #putin signed marco rubio. this from liz cheney.
potus statements is deeply troubling and wrong. there's no question that the president has been walking a fine diplomatic line with russia. he would like to engage their help in the fight against isis and other radical islamic extremism. he's trying to keep things cordial. we'll see if he can continue to do that. >> harris: i want to stay with russia here for a second. also making news as we talked about is this idea that russia expects something, i'm not sure what, because it doesn't like the words that mr. trump used about iran being number 1 for terror. >> right. that's because russia has got a lot of backing of iran. iran is a big fierce ally of russia. the nuclear deal flows through russia as well. he's walking that hard line when it comes to iran but also taking the soft line when it comes the president putin in russia. so it's a very delicate
diplomatic dance that he's doing here. we'll see if he can do it without upsetting both minds. >> harris: that's where i want to go next. the tough words for iran and exactly where we are. >> you do this job long enough, you learn to read minds. >> harris: read harris' mind. >> this president is making it clear that he's going to deal with iran differently than the last administration did. last friday he slapped sanctions on them. now he's saying that he may consider ripping up the iran deal. of course, as a candidate, he promised he would renegotiate the deal with bill o'reilly, he said that ripping it up may be on the table. >> i can say this. they have total disregard for our country. the they are the number 1 terrorist state and they're sending money all over the place and weapons. can't do that. >> don't forget the president
has said nothing is off the table. they're considering more sanctions if iran continues to, as the president said, not behave. harris? >> harris: one big question, do we get any of the money particular, particularly the $1.7 billion nonransom that we've been paying iran? >> i doubt it. highly unlikely. once money like that is gone to a place like that, it's gone for good. >> john roberts with the updates. thanks. a federal appeals court is planning to move very quickly to decide whether to restore the president's travel ban. right after the administration submits its written argument, a three-judge panel can make its decision. experts say it most likely could come within a week or faster. fox team coverage continues with trace gallagher with the news. trace? >> harris, the trump administration will certainly have its counter argument into the ninth circuit court by 3:00 p.m. pacific time today and a decision come could any time thereafter. the three-judge panel won't
convene in san francisco. instead, they settle them in phone conversations. the judges in questions are democrats, moderately liberal. william canby jr. and michelle t. freedland appointed by judge obama. the third judge is considered moderately conservative. this court has a huge reputation for being liberal. once ruling that the phrase "one nation under god" be removed from the pledge of allegiance and nativity scenes be banned from south california parks. whatever decision the ninth circuit court comes to, it will likely be appealed to the supreme court. because we're still short one supreme court justice, a 4-4 tie is likely, which means the ninth circuit route ruling would stand. harris? >> all right. and i understand now, too, 100
technology are lining up to fight the president's ban. so they're joining this effort. >> correct. including companies like apple, facebook and dozens of others. they argue the president's ban negatively effects the job market. they says it hinders american companies to attract great ta tale talent, makes it more difficult for american firms to compete in the international marketplace. a study from a northern california think tank says 37% of silicon valley residents are foreign born. several major tech companies did not join the legal battle like amazon, oracle and hewlett pack cart. >> harris: trace, thanks very much. two republicans with two very different views on the immigration ban. the debate within party lines.
and a programming note for you what you have not seen yet of bill o'reilly's exclusive sit-down interview with president trump. among the topics, what was it like for the new president to criticize the obama white house with the former president sit ago few feet away. remember that? on inauguration day. that's tonight at 8:00 eastern only on "the factor."
>> harris: we're coming up on the 6:00 p.m. deadline today for the trump administration to file documents in support of the president's travel ban. here to debate, two republicans with two very different opinions on that executive order. boyd matheson, former chief of staff to utah senator mike lee. nick adams, founder and executive director for f.l.a.g. nick, i want the start with you and what you anticipate to happen next. everybody is following this legal battle very quickly and very closely. now there's deadlines looming. >> harris, i'm not a constitutional scholar but i'm clear when it detrimental to the interests of the united states, for certain people to get entry here, the president has every right to make sure that he keeps americans safe, that he keeps our families safe, that he keeps our countries safe. ultimately donald trump will prevail politically and legally.
it's unfortunate that we have a liberal judge in a liberal jurisdiction and is trying to thwart the president's attempts to keep us safe. as a new american, i'm extraordinarily dismayed with that decision. >> harris: what are you worried about specifically? >> it'sbout the security and the safety, harris, of americans. the truth is that right now we are at war with a small but very substantial element of islam, radical islamic terrorists who have at their core a desire to make sure that america doesn't exist, that our way of life doesn't exist. we need to want to live as much as they want to die. otherwise, we're not going to be able to win this battle. i think that this is a common sense move that president trump has embarked on. it's the first step in making sure that we defeat people that
are hell-bent on making sure we're not alive. >> harris: so boyd, normally i'd go to perhaps an opposite party person to but you're within the same party. is there some nuance that you agree on? >> everybody is concerned about national security. we all want to be safe. no question about that. it's the president's most important job. president trump is absolutely right and shining a light on the national security issue. we have to balance how do we roll this out and send the right messages to the world and to people here in the united states? the roll-out was clunky. we said most -- >> harris: the president didn't say that. he said it went well. >> yes. which is maybe an alternative fact. i'm not sure. most administrations wobble out of the gate though. we're having regular air bag deployments. i think what happened unfortunately is this sort of was a fire, ready, aim
diplomacy. america is a place like nick can come and be part of the american dream. we have that compassionate component to who we are as americans and we need to make sure we're striking the right balance. on a day when we really celebrate ronald reagan's birthday, we should remember the communication strategy always has to be as strong as the policy strategy. i think the administration missed it. >> harris: you got it all in, including a birthday shout out. want to ask this. what if it never really would have gone as smoothly as it worked out in your head because there's so many people on the other side of the political aisle, those protesting and rioting in the streets, those at the airport and so on and so forth. that to consider. are republicans who think like you willing to come forth with an idea that would shore up the writing in that executive order?
is that conversation happen something. >> yes, i think it's beginning to happen and needs to happen more. it's one of those things that i actually believe the country is not nearly as divided as it's being made out to be. so i'm definitely not a fan of executive orders for either party. >> harris: too late for that. they all do it. >> yeah, that's right. they both do because they know if they convince the country that we're do divided to deal with it, it gives congress an excuse to do nothing and gives the president the excuse to do whatever he wants with the stroke of a pen. congress needs to take back their power and start this conversation. we need an immigration strategy that fits the american model. we can be top, vet, do all of those things properly and be compassionate in the process because that's who we are.
>> harris: nick, is the temperature warm enough to come together as the way boyd is seeing it? >> harris, i think so. unity is the call for the day. >> harris: so who needs to call for it? >> we all need to play a part making sure we're united behind the president. the president just begun. it's the most auspicious, energetic start to a president's administration that we can remember. >> harris: can i jump in for one second? i feel like it's the elephant in the room in this. the fact that if the president really thought that that were the case, he might not have gone down this road, this is a core issue, not just a campaign promise. everybody knew this was coming. >> harris, it's really important for good leaders to do what they think is right, to lead and i think that's exactly what donald trump is doing. it's not going to be universally popular that doesn't matter. it's the right thing he's doing, he's keeping america safe and putting americans first.
thank god for that. >> harris: all right. two people within the same party lines talking about the issues. this was fun and different. thank you, gentlemen. >> thank you. >> harris: lawmakers set to vote on donald trump's controversial pick for secretary of education. stay close. you know i work at ally. i was being romantic. you know what i find romantic? a robust annual percentage yield that's what i find romantic. this is literally throwing your money away. i think it's over there. that way? yeah, a little further up. what year was that quarter? what year is that one? '98 that's the one. you got it! nothing stops us from doing right by our customers. ally. do it right. let's get out of that water.
>> harris: we're going to take a look at this live. democrats are trying to derail president trump's nominee for education secretary, betsy devos. live on the floor. democratic lawmaker say they're going to go for 24 hours. we expect a vote noon tomorrow. as of now, the senate appears to be split 50/50 because two republicans say they're voting against devos. that would leave the tie-breaking vote to mike pence.
the vice president and the president of the senate. make him the first vice president in our nation's history to cast the deciding vote on a cabinet nominee. the white house called devos an unbelievable champion of education. critics have pointed to her lack of experience. mike emanuel is live at capitol hill with more. tell us about the tone on the senate floor. we don't have audio. >> it's been rough. for example, saying they cannot imagine someone worst to lead the department of education. earlier, the senate democratic leader blasted her. >> the nominee for secretary of education doesn't know some of the most basic facts about education policy. she has failed to show proficiency, and there's no longer any time for growth. frankly, mrs. devos' answers were embarrassing at the hearings. >> in the senate, if you don't have the votes to defeat a
nomination, you have a right to run the clock up to 30 hours, harris. >> but most republicans are defending president trump's nominee. so where would they get a wedge in? >> that's right. they call her a visionary. bottom line, there's a lot of pressure to pick-off one more republican. a lot of republicans say she has worked tirelessly to reform education in this country. even though it's shaping up to be a close vote on devos, top republicans say she's worthy. >> we're very confident that betsy devos will be the next secretary of education. it will be my high none to cast the deciding vote next week. >> and senate republican leaders are fuming saying at this stage that president trump has the smallest numbers of cabinet nominees confirmed of any president in modern history. they're saying a lot of the opposition to the trump cabinet is because democrats and their base are still angry with the
president. harris? >> harris: mike emanuel, thanks very much. russia is responding to president trump's comments blasting the controversial nuclear deal with iran. why officials from russia say the agreement should stay in place. that and a check of the big headlines. stay with us. hambone! sally! 22! hut hut! tiki barber running a barber shop? yes!!! surprising. yes!!! what's not surprising? how much money david saved by switching to geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. who's next?

indeed. it's good to be in, good hands. ♪ to err is human. to anticipate is lexus. experience the lexus rx with advanced safety standard. experience amazing. >> harris: with the president talking russia, big-name republican lawmakers are distancing themselves from him. president trump says the u.s. has killers, too. in response to bill o'reilly calling vladimir putin a killer. some say there's no moral equivalency beten the united states and vladimir putin's thugs. rich, this has caused a ripple. >> harris: . >> it has, harris. with that, mike pence tried to
clarify the remarks. he says what the administration is looking for is a new relationship with russia where the u.s. and russia see where they can work together on certain issues. there's other republican leaders that offered a more blunt assessment. >> putin is a thug. he wasn't elected in a way that most people would consider a credible election. the russians annexed crimea and innovated ukraine and messed around in our elections. there's no equivalency the way the russians conduct themselves and the way we do. >> paul ryan is pushing for more sanctions against the putin regime. >> harris: it seems like russia expects something now because they don't like certain things being said. that's an interesting sort of nuance in the conversation. what are you hearing from the
state department? >> this new relationship that we have with russia and all these topics that come up. when you talk to the state department about this interview, they refer you to the white house about that interview. this as democrats in congress are continually piling on. the top senator on the senate foreign relations committee issued a statement saying "president trump made clear he doesn't believe in america's exceptionali exceptionalism. such a ridiculous statement sends a signal that this white house does not prioritize the united states but increasingly champions a russia-first policy." late last month president trump had his first conversation with vladimir putin. the white house says the two agreed to explore areas to work together and then only days later, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., nikki haley, offered her first address to the u.n. in which she criticized and cond n
condemned russia for their actions in the ukraine. >> harris: and part of this, some critics are saying the president's words sounded reminiscent of the apology tour that republicans were critical of president obama for. so that's kind of where this around and around has begun. there's another chapter. i'm going to move on. there's this. a top russian official says it would be too risky for the united states to try to reopen a nuclear deal with iran. the nation's foreign minister told local media, don't try to fix what is not broken. president trump called it "the world deal i have ever seen negotiated ". last week, the white house slapped iran with a new round of sanctions after they tested a ballistic missile. this comes after u.s. is working to break up ways with russia's alliance in an effort to end the syrian civil war. that's what people familiar with
the policy talk told the "wall street journal." russia and iran both support bash bashar assad. let's bring in republican congressman adam kissinger from illinois. he's a republican and a member of the house committee on foreign affairs. congressman, you and i have talked about legislation that you pushed forth on russia. i'm familiar with that. where are we? >> look, there's a lot of questions in this administration in terms of where we're going to go with russia. i thought the president's words in the interview yesterday were very unfortunate. his actions as president have been pretty good. you saw nikki haley re-affirm america's commitments to sanctions as long as russia occupies crimea.
they occupied georgia. so the actions coming out of the administration, getter tougher on iran, making it clear they're not going to bully their neighbors is very good. it's things like yesterday that you say what are you trying to say in that? is there a better way to put it? it's unfortunately to put the united states in the same equivalency of russia. >> harris: i always try to dial things back to what the american public may see. i don't know that they calculate as much as the words as the actions. if you look at november 8, you think that, right? they're looking to see who do what. carrot and stuck. it's possible that the president is seeing a gestalt view saying carrot and stick? you be the stick, i'll be the carrot? >> i'm not sure the president should play that role and say that word.
i have no problem with a president that says if we can have areas to work together with the russians. each administration in the past, whether obama or bush tried, but have failed. so i'm hoping that, you know, as i've seen this foreign policy of this administration to come out, seems to be in line with what i think a republican-american first foreign poll situation. many of the left that will have histerics. we have a president now that will follow-through and put down red lines that he means. >> harris: so this is fair to ask since we've seen so much blow-back publicly is. there room for leaders in the party to have a quiet moment with the president rather than holding news conferences and stepping up to microphones and saying where they are or is that what is supposed to happen? >> i think having the quiet
moments would be good and is supposed to happen. i'm sure it happens within the white house. i'm sure the leaders have opportunities to say this. sometimes something like the comment yesterday was big enough that a lot of people will be asked to address it. there's a lot of around this. what we're seeing in foreign policy is shaping up to be pretty good. it's only been a couple weeks. >> harris: it's funny you say that. the washington times, mitt romney said that trump is off to a very strong start. he specifically points to his executive orders, which decidedly have dealt with issues of foreign policy in terms of the immigrations, so on and so forth and he says he's good at keeping his promises that he made along the way. the reason i ask you about the quiet conversations is because if russia or anybody else is looking at this country and they see us having this dialogue back and forth, is that helpful? >> no, it's not. i'd say that to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle.
was critical of president obama but never critical on foreign policy issues just because. i think it's important that politics end at the water's edge as much as it can. you can still disagree. i'd encourage my friends on the other side, don't make everything a major issue. let's try to work together as americans and restore foreign policy and build the world in that process by america leading again. >> harris: thanks, congressman. is there something precipitous? something we need to know coming from russia? those words were harsh coming from them. then iran had harsh words, too, in terms of what they would do to the fifth fleet in bahrain in terms of renegotiating this nuclear deal? >> you have russia, assad and the middle east. it's all real politics. this idea that we need to create a wedge between iran and russia is important. it's going to be difficult.
the iranians are using the russians and vice versa. they just want the power. >> interesting. adam, thanks for being here. thank you. >> you too. take care. >> harris: we have seen many challenges to president trump's travel ban. but the one in seattle is a bit different. our next guest will explain how a single judge put the president's entire executive order in limbo. stay close.

>> harris: critics of president trump's travel bans have filed more than two dozens petitions and lawsuits. but it's a ruling in seattle that has the biggest impact, a federal judge there ordered a nationwide halt to the main parts of the ban. that's why we are where we are. legal experts told the "wall street journal" the move was
unusual. said it went far beyond other rulings. they say the decision was within the judge's power to make. president trump called the ruling ridiculous and it would be overturned. the federal appeals court in san francisco is considering the case. dan henninger from the "wall street journal." dan, i want to start with this. this is what is in the power of the judge and also within the power of the president. which power? >> that's something the courts will decide here, for sure. the federal district judge in seattle certainly had it within his authority to issue a national injunction. we have to make it clear, it's very, very rare for district judges to issue a national injunction covering the entire country. usually it involves an individual plaintiff who would be irrepairablely harmed by something. so what the judge did is very
unusual. on the other hand, it's conceded the president has extraordinary authority when it comes to immigration and refugees. the refugee act of 1952 clearly gives the president authority in this area. so we're at the point of a legal stand off. that's what's going to go forward to the appeals court. >> okay. so the burden, as i understand from what i've read is on the seattle judge to prove there was harm. where is that proof? what do we know? >> actually his opinion was very thin on that point. he suggested that -- the plaintiffs here are two states, washington and minnesota. they were saying their budget planning was being harmed or the ability of colleges to plan, incoming students. this seemed like a thin reed to hang this on. the appeals court in san francisco has to decide whether to send it back to the seattle judge's courtroom or to take this case on itself. that is the point in which this could really bog down and
procedural questions. >> harris: all right. i just took notes on what you said. the president, business within his constitutional empowerment is going against a thin argument of budget issues and college budgeting issues? isn't that what you just said? >> essentially so. >> how does the white house not win? >> analysts will say ultimately the white house should win. the question is how quickly. add in the complicating factor that let's say this goes to the supreme court. let's say that the ninth circuit, which is a very liberal -- the most liberal circuit in the easy, decides to agree with the judge and kick it to the supreme court which is divided 4-4. my guess is the supreme court won't take the case until neil gorsuch is confirmed so they have nine justices. that could take several months. >> it's interesting. what we did hear from senator
grassley this weekend, it could be looking at a nomination process, a final hearing for judge gorsuch within the next six weeks. he mentioned the easter break. it might not take months and might get there. we're talking a lot of mights. we haven't gotten past the 6:00 p.m. deadline with the white house getting back and the administration getting back with their paperwork. >> yeah, the supreme court would have to feel there's a compelling reason and the compelling reason here i guess would be the standoff between the trump white house and the courts over the constitutionality of what the courts did. normally they don't expedite -- >> harris: i look at the glaring difference between national security issues, the white house, the president and the budget and the college issues that you mentied that were so thinly laid out by the seattle judge. those are the facts. >> the judge was reacting to the chaos going on. some of the other court cases themselves could come forward.
those are based on green cards, visas. they could take precedence over time. >> harris: thanks, dan. we'll be right back. every late night... and moment away... with every click...call...punch... and paycheck... you've earned your medicare. it was a deal that was made long ago, and aarp believes it should be honored. thankfully, president trump does too. "i am going to protect and save your social security and your medicare. you made a deal a long time ago." now, it's congress' turn. tell them to protect medicare. tech: don't let a cracked windshtrust safelite.plans. with safelite's exclusive "on my way text"... you'll know exactly when we'll be there. giving you more time for what matters most. (team sing) safelite repair, safelite replace.
>> harris: let's talk obamacare. as a candidate, president trump promised to quickly repeal and replace the affordable care act. more than two weeks in, no sign of that replacement plan in place. during his interview with bill o'reilly, president trump would not give a specific time line and why it could take awhile. >> in the process and maybe till take into sometime in next year but we're certainly in the process. very simply -- complicated. it's a disaster. you have to remember, obamacare doesn't work. we're putting in a wonderful plan. takes awhile to get statutorily.
>> harris: some republicans are arguing for a more moderate approach and repairing obamacare and keeping the parts that work. others inside the gop say they want to get rid of it, as much of it as possible. james rosen is live in washington. james, this is interesting. they get criticized if they move too quickly and criticized if they move too slowly. >> good afternoon. with president trump disclosing we might not see his successor to obamacare until 2018, the top republicans are re-assuring the base. the gop conference isn't looking just to tinker with the law. >> premiums are going up double digits. deductibles are so high. it's our duty as representatives of our constituents of the
american people to step in front of this crash and rescue people from this collapsing healthcare system and replace it with something better. >> aides to president trump claim that senate democrats are slow-walking the confirmation of key cabinet officers, including tom price, the physician who mr. trump has nominated the secretary of the department of health and human services. republicans have shifted their timetable for introducing a successor for obamacare. democratic lawmakers ridiculed obamacare without having their own plan to be ready to go now. >> the chairman's bill runs off the page. i look -- i took it this morning and i started to read it. i got to title 2 continuous coverage. it says incentive place holder.
