10:01 am
hope you are having a great sunday at home. i am leland vittert. welcome to "america's news hq" from washington. elizabeth: thanks for joining us this sunday. i am elizabeth prann. the last polls will close in an hour close in on our entrance through the whole world is watching and waiting to see which two presidential candidates let fans to a runoff on may 7th. police are patrolling the streets and security just days after an isis inspired shooter killed a french policeman in paris. greg talcott is watching the polls live from the french capital. hi, greg. >> we are watching the polls than we are getting breaking information just as you're speaking now. we've been talking to or services that may tell us about a very tight race, which we will explain to you in a moment. first, take a look at what we saw today. >> turnout was expected to be late for the first round of the presidential elections.
10:02 am
here in the city hall, but that didn't area of paris, it is anything but you're the vote has been called on predict low and important. the people are treating it like that. >> the turnout is turning out to be stronger than expect it. if it keeps up, it will be around 80%. again, the voters are choosing among 11 different candidate. the two top vote getters will go on for a runoff in two weeks. one of the top contenders populist marine lepen. a common currency of the euro as a stagnant economy. she's also going for big crack down on immigration. a muslim population here to do with insecurity. the other than a candidate according to all the polls here. moderate, centrist. his big appeal as he is running as an independent apart from the
10:03 am
other scandal ridden parties here in this country. all this in very high security appeared 50,000 police officers. 10,000 soldiers. last thursday the attack on police here in the heart of the city as well as a lot of deadly terror attacks that have occurred here in the past couple of years. very high-stakes election again from our own sources inside the election can't. they are telling us at a very tight race with one hour yet to go. exit polls firmly at the end of that hour, but all indications are the surveys that have been talking about a manual and marine lepen nasdaq and the former prime minister third. they should be holding out. this is what surveys are saying again it is not definite. it is not time out, but then the top two vote getters again will go on to a runoff right now, but
10:04 am
in this topsy-turvy election time, election period, nothing is for certain. stay tuned. leland: we will. all eyes on france. thank you, greg. elizabeth: the president has to did about the french election this morning calling it very interest in. but as the white house looks over to the week ahead, they are facing some tough headlines including the front page of today's "washington post" with the headline trump polls at record lows. kristin fisher in the white house or they are planning a barnstorming week to close out the president's first 100 days in office. hi, chris didn't. >> k., leland. the spending bill has the most immediate consequences negotiations hinge on one thing. president trump possibly refusing to sign it unless it is a $1 billion down payment on his border wall.
10:05 am
democrats say that right there is a dealbreaker. but will the president do? backup business campaign promise when he needs to win the most of the 100 day mark refused to sign the bill that would keep the government helping. the answer according to budget director nick mulvaney is we don't know but the white house is open to negotiations. >> he saw his answer in your lead-in, which is we don't know yet. we are asking for our priorities. reporter: another sunday show, homeland security secretary took a harder line than he believes this is an issue where the president will not budge. the same. >> i think it goes without saying that the president has been pretty straightforward about his desire and the need for a border wall. i would suspect he'll do the right thing for sure, but i would suspect he will be insisted on the funding. >> that hardline as both democrats and republicans nervous about the possibility of
10:06 am
the government actually shutting down. something that marco rubio said would have a catastrophic impact on the u.s. abroad. here's his take on the border wall in spending bill. >> i think that's a fight worth having and a conversation debate worth having for 2018. we can do that now, that would be great. we cannot shut down the government now. reporter: president trump is also pressuring house republicans on health care, even though speaker ryan has said he doesn't have the vote for the time to pass some kind of meaningful health care reform or some kind of replacement to obama cared. next week, president trump poised to unveil his big tax reform plan so it's very clear that this white house is really trying to score some kind of big legislative win before his first 100 days there a period leland: kristin fisher at the white house. kristin, thanks. liz has more. elizabeth: "wall street journal" white house reporter peter niklas joins us now. thank you so much.
10:07 am
we go do often wonder how these complex weeks ahead. >> i hope i can deliver. speed back first and foremost what is going on behind the scenes of the white house. we got sort of a relaxed on for the president when it comes to health care. they seemed optimistic about the 28th. what are you getting the scenes? >> the big surprises of the president said late last week where he will release his tax reform plan. we have been talking to senior white house officials saying that actually was not the way that we might not even see broad outlines. we might not even see broad outlines until mid-night for late may. this is a surprise in what is happening is the president may be trying to light a fire, trying to have some deliverables come as something to show voter constituents before the first 100 day milestone that is making milestones on the promise. elizabeth: is to put a note too much on the plate?
10:08 am
a "washington post" has a 42-53 approval rating and approving his performance. the 100 day benchmark as every president puts a lot of weight on it. but at the same time come as a counterproductive to look at three big issues in one week? even a proposal is just another issue that we are talking about. >> that's exactly right. health care is also making progress on health care. a lot of speculation. the white house has said there might even be a breakthrough in a deal ended up happening this week. also trying to avoid a budget shutdown. there's a lot happening this week. it's a lot of pressure. what happens if he fails? what happens at the tax reform plan proves to be less than meets the eye? what happens if there is no health care vote or is the health care vote and not fails, too. there's a government shutdown by the 100 day milestone, that is
10:09 am
not the narrative the president wants. that is going to look like he wants to put points on the board, show some progress in victories and he has a lot on his plate. it's not clear if he can deliver. elizabeth: do you get the sense this administration that let's say we see the budget proposal that doesn't have all the things he wants. the wallace in the mirror some of the things we know democrats are going to balk out. let's say there's an increase in military spending that gets approved. that's not a sale. that's a compromise. >> it is all how you define it. you just laid out a path where the president can describe some of the victories achieved. he has now said that his staff saying publicly they want border while funding. this is a priority for the president. he's going to deliver on it. they were planning for the wall. that's a negotiated point is taken and if they have to make concessions and yield on that point, that could be perceived as a retreat on his part. it is looking like the budget negotiation stakes are high. it's not quite sure how he will clear the threshold.
10:10 am
elizabeth: one can argue democrats are concerned about their image of the government shutdown. republicans were so. what about the administration? are they putting weight in the fact that if there is a shutdown if a mayor? >> government shutdowns have always traditionally backfired on congress. so to some degree the president has that going for him. i think what is different here is president trump has said order while funding is important to him -- he got members of congress, particularly democrats are signing they are not going to yield on that point. they are setting up something that no-space-off is not clear how well positioned the president has. they have to back down from that point. >> a face-off is a good way to describe it. >> that's why i'm here. elizabeth: will probably have to back up regardless of the outcome is a big week ahead. republicans need to do that again. thank you so much. all eyes on washington.
10:11 am
>> thank you on the list. great to be with you. leland: let's bring in our fair and balanced panel to debate mark levine and larry o'connor. mark is a friend of a show which friend of a show which should tell you is a member of the virginia house of delegates in case anybody was wondering. larry coming to you first as we kick off this sunday discussion. we have heard now that the white house is trying to make border while funding a hill to die on. at least they said they are willing to. is that what the government shutdown? >> first of all let's declare the government does not shut down. every government employee gets paid. that's how it always works. your prior guest said it always bad virus on congress. the last government shutdown that wasn't a government shutdown, republicans were the majority and took over leadership. it's not always a bad gain. most american voters when they watch this thing, they know that
10:12 am
it's the drama that may be less to get involved with. that said, -- >> you even have paul ryan, speaker of the house all but acknowledging yesterday in a conference call, look, the government shuts down with a republican house, republican senate and republican in the white house come in it just doesn't look so good. >> i don't doubt paul brandt said that. paul ryan has not played the best political cards in the world. he's a smart guy, nice guy, but he doesn't understand the politics of what was i not in this town, but every other town across the country. that said, the president will die on how common they could be about funding the wall for crying out loud. he can stand up there and say understand something here. democrats don't want to protect the border. they are willing to shut the government down so that our border is not protect it. he wins that. >> a visit by u.n. to take on? >> i seem to recall a candidate
10:13 am
say mexico was going to pay for that while. i'm not sure what he needs any funding anyway. whatever happened with that deal? >> i can explain that if you like. >> tell me why backed out on his promise that he said 100 times mexico would pay for this wallet now he's willing to say i'll shutdown the government to veto them to do what i promised america he wouldn't do. >> thank you are a match. before even explain to my border crossing is down 67% because of any president and attorney general say we're going to prosecute was that of reward you. that said -- >> -- after george w. bush. >> i'll answer your question. >> you're an elected official select explain how the government works. congress pays for something. they are the ones who pay for it. they'll have to pay for the wildly get reimbursed. the mexican government actually can pay directly. how the mexican government pays
10:14 am
for it by putting my base on top of all a the u.s. currency that is being sent back to mexican officials are mexican citizens from those who are in this country illegally. someone wants across the border. >> sound like you want all their money now. >> great to hear a democrat being concerned about taking all of our money. >> why do we wait until mexico -- >> i think we figured out they would be a lively debate on whether or not to fund the border while. i want to get your thoughts on the poll numbers that show the president's approval numbers and record low. take a listen to members of the administration defending the first 100 days. >> we are reducing the role of government in your life and we are doing so i'm truly historic he says. add just days gonul tol. no president -- assert
10:15 am
accomplishments by this administration in the first hundred days, but all anybody wants to talk about his health care. >> we've got about 15 seconds. first to you. so many liberals now in the media are touting these poll numbers as proof of some. only 2% of people who voted for donald trump said they regret that decision. too early to claim victory? >> the majority of people voted to reject him a shot. more than 3 million doses very hard for minority president to run and win it do anything without reaching to majority of americans and is not doing that. leland: larry, i'm guessing you're in the group that approves of donald trump so far. >> you are brave. this is a devastating blow for trump. bush as president taylor clinton how she feels about that. that's right, the polls are meaningless because she had all the great polls. >> 3 million votes more than donald trump. >> it didn't for sure. gentlemen, great conversation.
10:16 am

10:42 am
the past couple of months for what they might actually do. >> well, the rhetoric of the past couple months is similar to the rhetoric of the past six decades. when north korea wants to do what it wants to have an enemy. the canon family machine, the totalitarian regime needs a big scary enemy. it is like a fish needs water. it needs a certain amount of external threat to justify life in north korea, which is unpleasant. transfer a unpleasant it may be the understatement of the century. the mac right, right. people live there, though. and there's a certain amount of dye used to with the machine believes. the way to get that diane and stay in that diane is to have a constant existential threat. the kim regime chooses the united states for historical
10:43 am
reasons is this big bad enemy. having conflict with the united days helps kim jog un solidify his power going forward. leland: executed has relatives hopes and solidify his power as well. i'm interested in this concept of the three generations of of the kim family who have run this country. you can call them crazy, call them that, make fun of them, but they've survived. gadhafi is gone, saddam is gone. so many evil dictators of the world have met their end through the air of spring are other ways, but somehow these guys have gone on. likely because of nuclear weapons. >> well, they have survived because they are not great day. they have a strategy for keeping their country, a totalitarian system going and that is to seal their borders and restrict the amount of information that
10:44 am
people have been tell those people that there's a big scary world out there that will come again like in the 1950s during the korean war and bomb them and burn them unless they support the kim regime. some people don't die that. some people leave the country. only 30,000 people have ever fled to korea to south korea in the past 50 years. most people do by the regime's propaganda. leland: stunning numbers with a think about how awful life is inside north korea. you does reporting on that. i was talking to greg talcott yesterday in north korea for the big parade we are watching video of a couple weeks ago or last weekend i say. he said that was so amazing is what you are talking about that do matter who you talk to, they repeated the exact same lines about the evil united states and how they were so thankful to the kim family, to kim jong un in particular for protecting them
10:45 am
against the big bad imperialist enemy. >> it is true. the propaganda is effective. even people who decide to many of them find their to south korea, when they are asked about the kim family, they are free to talk about it, even though the threat no longer exists. it's really sort of bread into the bone. also his hatred of american. leland: one defect or sent he defected solely to tell the world about how great the kim family was. he thought they were venerated enough. he then figured out the world was a big plays. quickly, i want to get to this idea what the united states is doing. videos might have done making a station to her. every stop it seems to be tougher and tougher rhetoric about north korea. very quickly, is that the right way to do it or do you go after the kim family tour information and try to start a inserted into
